"No: in addition to Jones' report there
had been one from Special Agent Love."
"Didn't Love recommend the Cunning
ham elalms for clear listing?" asked Rep
"It did not amount to a recommendation
exactly," replied the counsel.
At this point Senator Sutherland Inter
jected: "It seems to me we are getting a great
deal more testimony out of counsel than
out of tha wltnoim."
Thereupon the examination of Mr. Qlavla

clala of the land office the matter of the
Alaska claim. He told Mr. Scwarts thai
persons were saying there would bo no
further Investigation of tlto claims In
Alaska and that patents would be granted.
Feared Big; Land Scandal.
"I said there waa great danger of an
other big scandal equal to that In Wyo
ming and Colorado, where the Investigation
Of the coal land - cases had been sup
pressed." declared Glavls.
"Who suppressed those Investigations?"
demanded Senator Paynter (dotnocrat).
"It waa testified at Bait Lake that former
Commissioner Richards did Mr. Balllnger
bad no' connection with it in any way."
"Why were people In Seattle saying they
Would get their patents?", asked Mr. Jamea
"I don't know." replied Glavls; "I know
of no reasons they may have had."
."Who made these statements?" Inquired
"There were a number of claimants in

Glavls was conducted' to Mr. Bellinger's

cases. .; ..
"Whst did you say to Commissioner Bal
llnger?" "I told him I thought we could cancel
all the Alaska claims; that a lot of promi
nent people had formed a pool and that the
evidence would prove if.
"What did Mr. Balllnger say to you?"
"He said a number of claimants were
friends and- former business associates of
his and that -there had been a lot of talk
that they would get their patents."

The following witnesses today Were sub

ths request of the "prosecution:"

Cheyenne, Wyo. ; Andrew Kennedy, Seat

Glavls deolared it was December, 13, 1907,
that he had his Interview with Commis
sioner Balllnger. On January 7, 1908, less
than a mouth after he had been directed to
make the Investigation a letter was ad
dressed to him by Mr. Balllnger, stating
that the Cunningham claims had been
"clear listed" from the Investigating divi
sion for patent.
On January 22, IDOft, Glavls sent a tele
gram and letter protesting against the
clear listing of the claims and they were
withdrawn and sent back to the Investigat
ing division. , . v , .
Mr. Brandeis read further from the
printed .record to show that the first order
to clear-list the Cunningham claims was
issued by the mineral division on December
20 1907 Just thirteen days after ths Glavls
interview with Mr.' BatlingeV The order,
however, waa held up by direction of
Schwarts. ' ' - " - '
Clear List Office Held Up.
One order for clear-listing, so far as the
mineral divtsionwa concerned, hsd been
issued December S. 1907, prior to Glavls'
visit to Washington, but thla, too. was
held up by Mr. Hchwartz.
In calling attention to certain of the evi
dence he wished to Introduce. Mr. Brandeis
commented rather freely on It.
"Let me suggest that you avoid argument
on the effect of evidence," said, Senator
Nelson sharply, "Just state the evidence
you desire to submit without arguing about
It. Your argument Is not objectionable, but
It delays the proceedings."
At the opening of tha afternoon session
Attorney Brandeis offered in evidence the
Journal of Clarence Cunningham of Wal
lace, Idaho, the agent In all the Cunning
ham claims, which contained the entry!
Have agreed with Mr. W. B. Heyburn
In consideration for , his services as at
torney to carry him for one claim of 100
acres in the coal, free of cost to him, and
he agrees to do all our legal work In pro
curing titles, etc."
In an .'affidavit made subsequent to the
loss of his journal, Cunningham made
publlo a letter from Senator W. B. Hey
burn of Idaholn which the senator said:
I do not desire to participate In or be
Interested In any manner, directly or Indi
rectly, In acquiring public lands. Whatever
services I may perform properly within
my duty as a public offlolal for yourself
or any other constituent I shall cheerfully
perform, but not for any consideration, di
rectly or Indirectly. 1 do not desire any
Interest to be carried for me or on my
account with a view to any present or
future profit to myself.
Cunningham preceded this letter with the
"As soon as I became aware that cool
lands could not be taken in Alaska under
the mineral laws, Mr. Heyburn Informed
me in person that he could not act under
Agreement to. Form Company.
The Journal contained under date of 190a
an agreement among the Cunningham,
claimants to form a company, each claim
ant to give Cunningham one-eighth of his
stock In return for services rendered.
There was also offered In evidence a
letter from Clarence Cunningham dated
at Seattle January IS, 1906, addressed to
the register of the land office. Juneau.
Alaska, In which were these statements: '
"I am glad to' know that you sent your
office copies on to Washington, for I am
advised by Governor Moore that he is
assured by the department chiefs that pat
ents will bo Issued you forthwith on ar
rival of plats unless some reason for with
holding same la advanced by Special Field
Agent Glavls, which Is not expected.
, "The commissioner has furnished us with
copies of all the correspondence and tele
grams relating to our entries between the
J various special agents-and also' with your
orrica. Up to dale everything seems to be
approved by each special agent and de
partment chief. So now our only delay
will be occasioned through failure to re
ceive plats, according to Judge Balllnger's
Glavls said he waa ordered May i. 190S,
to discontinue the Alasan Inquiry and take
up the Oregon cases, where he had rtcom
mended that If something were not done
at once tha statute of limitations would
soon prove a bar.
Rcparted to Attoraey.
"Hut I also said the Alaskan Investiga
tion should not have been dropped at that
time." said Glavls.
Reading from Attorney General Wick
ersham's report to the president on the
Glavls charges. Attorney Brande'a quoted
this sentence: "He (Glavts) might have
added, he has never taken any action what
ever to bring those criminal prosecutions
which he advised the land offloe muit be
brought before October, 1908. to escape the
bar of the statute of limitations."
"I that true?" demanded Mr. Brandeis
of the wltnesa.
"It is not," answered Olavis. In May
or April I took the Alaska cases up with
United States Attorney Todd at Seattle.
He afterward wrote to me saying he hal
laid the matter before the Department of
Justice, as there was some doubt In his
mind whether he should lav th cases
before the grand Jury In Scatil-, where the
claimants lived, or In A!aku. where the
claims were located.
"In June, 190R, t prepared a report on
this subject to Commlr.'lor.er Oennett, b'lt
learning that be Was to he In Oregon soon

we talked the matter over, dlscusnlna tht
entire situation. Dennett said he did not
think there should be any criminal prosecu

above referred to Omaha Indians voiced
their opposition to the transfer of Super
intendent Police and to the government's
policy of Industrial farming as contem
plated by Assistant Commissioner Abbott.
The delegation Is here to urge upon the
department the right of the Indians, per
sonally and exclusively, to control ihtlr
The whole matter of governmental regu
lation of the Omaha and Winnebago reser
vations ws gone over, the Indians present
ing their side of the case, while Commis
sioner Yalentlne and Assistant Commis
sioner Abbott outlined to the delegation
what the government's plans were. It is
difficult to know exactly what the In
dians want. It is a well-known fact that
when Assistant Commissioner Abbott was
on 'the reservation last fall he outlined
what he believed would be to the best in
terests of the Indian to protect him
against robbery and to , secure him not
only his land, but money he was entl.Ied
to. So far as could be learned the In
dians were entirely satisfied with state
ments made to them .
Decided Change la Attitude.
When Tom Sloan waa here reoently the
consolidation of the Omaha and Winne
bago reservations was presented to him and
reasons were given why the two reserva
tions ought to be amalgamated, for eco
nomical reasons as well as to secure more
efficient service. Mr. Sloan, It is under
stood, admitted the justice of the de
partment's position and said he would do
all he could to bring about a perfect under
standing among the Indians as to what the
government was seeking to accomplish. Su
far as is known, Mr. Sloan still believes
In the proposition of the government to
consolidate the agencies, but giving to each
tribe the man whom it desires and to es
tablish two or more experimental farms
on the reservation managed by trained
farmers who would be directed to educate
the Indians in farming.
Ths delegation from Walthlll In Wash
ing ton recently was also understood to
be friendly to the government's position.
But a change has come over some of
them and now they are opposing the In
rnn office and particularly and especially
Assistant Commissioner Abbott, who has
been actuated solely by a desire to make
the Indians self-supporting and to protect
them' against unscrupulous white people.
The delegation of Omahas now In Washing

Feehan declared that the interests of
U,000 miners had been sacrificed and that
they actually had suffered a reduction of
wages by Lewis' action.
The questions relat'fij to the substitution
of a new explosive for black powder had
not been settled, Lewis declared, but they
must be solved before a satisfactory wage
contract oould be signed In, Pennsylvania.
Vice President Van Bittner of the Pitts
burg district charged Lewis , with having
brought about a settlement of the strike
in violation of the miners' .contract with
the Pittsburg Coal company.
"That Is untrue," shouted Lewis.
