the week with an urgent address urging
the workers In - all lines to join the

The direct examinations occupied but a
few mlnuUs, the cross-examination by
Mr. Brandeis taking up the remainder of
Mr. Todd and Mr. Love were prepared
for the onslaught of the Glavls attorney
and their answers were sometimes as sharp
as the thrusts of the lawyer. There has
been testimony before the committee from
time to time indicating that Mr. Love as
special agent was "warped" In his Judg
ment" by the fact that he was a candidate
for the marshalship in tha third .division
of Alaska. He was asked today what In
fluence he actually was depending upon to
get the place. '
"Well," he began, "I happened to be a
trooper in Colonel Roosevelt's regiment"
"You need go no, further," interrupted
Senator Flint, amid laughter.
Committee Divides on Purty Lines.
As tha hearmg progresses inc.ca.ions mul
tiply that tha congressional committee Is
so seriously split along party lines that a
unanimous report Is beyond the bounds of
possibility. The democratic members have
gone so far as to notify their republican
colleagues that tha democrats will partici

In publlo meetings the votes and the con
tentions that take place during the private
The executive sessions have not been har
monious, especially the one of Saturday last
when the question of compelling Secretary
Balllnger to testify as the first witness for
the "defense" was under consideration.
Following this session the democrats an
nounced that with the exception of Senator
Purcell they had voted !n favor of com
pelling the secretary of the Interior to ap
pear at once. Representative Madison of
Kansas, insurgent, voted with the demo
crats. Whether Mr. Madison will vote with the
df nr-ociat members when ths verdict comes
to be taken Is a question. His course dur
ing the examination of witnesses has given
but slight Intimation of his position. Sen
ator Purcell voted with the republicans
last Saturday 'simply because, as a lawyer,
ha declared the "defense" should have the
right to call its witnesses at Its pleasure,
the same privilege having been granted
Todd Contradicts Jones.
Elmer E. Todd. United States district at
torney at Seattle, Wash., was the first
witness called. Mr. Todd contradicted cer
tain statements made by Special Agent II.
Id. Jones when he was teatlfylng for Louis
R. Glavls. He said Jones' statement that
he had advised against criminal action In
the Alaska cases "because Judge Sanford
was constitutionally opposed to land fraud
trials generally," was absolutely false.
Mr. Vertrees asked Mr. Todd If he fiad
been consulted some time ago regarding a
possible prosecution against Glavls for let
ters missing from his office when he
turned It over to his successor, Chrlsten
sen. It Is claimed the letters afterward
were f-jund In a box belonging to Glavls.
Mr. Todd said Chrlstensen complained to
him In December that the letters were
missing. About this time copies of these
missing letters began to appear Iri a weekly
paper with the announcement that more
were to follow.
During Ills cross-examination of the wit
ness. Attorney Brandeis showed him some
of the Jones' daily reports, one of which
said he had conferred with Todd in re
gard to the criminal prosecution In the
"Didn't Mr. Jones confer with you at that
time?" asked the attorney.

Qaarrer In raaimltlea.
The cross-examination as to a letter
Olavla had written to the department at
Washington urging criminal prosecution In
certain cases soon led the committee Into a
quarral which lasted nearly an hour and
brought out anew the strength of the
partisan feeling which has grown up.
Attorney Brandeis resd s copy of the
Clevis letter which he ssld had come from
the files of the forestry services
"But that letter wss never sent," com
mented Mr. Todd.
'How do you know thst?" demanded Mr.
"Olavla o testified before this commit
tee." Chslrmsn Nelson ssked Mr. Brsndels If
there wss anything to show thst the letter
hsd been sent.
"There Is no direct evidence," replied the
"But It Is the letter Glavls testified he
never sent," persisted the chairman.
"It Is the letter thl wltnfs says Mr.
Olavls' t'stirlrd he did not send." re
torted Mr. Brandeis.
Attorney Vertrees read the Glavls testi
mony In which Glavls said he did not
sirtt the letter, because be heard Com
missioner I'ennett of the land office was
coming to Seattle and he could talk It
over with him. As Mr. Vertrees con
cluded, Chairman Nelson turned to Mr.
Brandeis and said:
"You know that; why did you conceal
that fart? Why didn't you tell the com
mittee?" Brandeis Resents Charge.
"Mr. Chairman," shouted the attorney, in
a voice wmcn couru oe nearn rar aown
the corridors, "I object strenuously to the
statement that I have attempted to con
ceal anything. My course has been such
before this committee that such a state

Chairman Nelson: "I won't withdraw It."
Representative Graham: "I Insist that my

Representative McCall said that p did
not think It was necessary, as he did not

Representative James said It was recog

Madison as Peacemaker.
Representative Madison acted as peace
maker with tome , success. He said he
thought the chairman's remark was made
hastily and h,e did not sympathise with
It. At i the same time, he "continued. It
must be understood that the chairman
spoke as an Individual and did not
represent the 'opinion of the committee.
"We are standing before the country In
this Inquiry," continued Mr. Madison, "and
If anybody is biased or Impartial it is be
ing written by the newspaper men.
Every member of the committee must
stand upon his own record. - What the
chairman says Is his personal view, ex
cept when, he makes an announcement as
the result of a1. vote.-
Mr. Brandeis said, that in .view of Mr.
Madison's statement he was willing to
allow the record to stand. (
Senator Fletcher of Florida, moved that
Mr. Graham's motion be amended to read
that the chairman's remark did not re
flect the view of tha committee.
Representative Olmstead moved that the
whole mafter be Ikld on the -table.

Todd Contradicts ' WIchersham.
Mr; Brandeis here read to the witness a
paragraph from Attorney General Wicker
sham's statement to the president on the
Glavls charges, In which he declared, al
though Glavls was Informed that criminal
proceedings must be begun before the May
grand Jury In 1908, he took no steps what
ever to bring these prosecutions. The at
torney demanded tq.know If that was true.
; "The May date Is a mistake. I Informed
Glavls and Jones that the matter must be
taken up before the July grand Jury. The
statement otherwise is true, except that
Jones came to me with some scattering
The attorney and tha witness got Into a
heated argument as to what constituted a
"step" In criminal prosecution. Mr.. Todd
said a step'was a movement forward.
. "But .it might . be a backward move
ment?" suggested Mr. Brandeis.
"It might be." .
Mr. Todd insisted he never had a con
ference with either Glavls or Jones.
"Don't you know Glavls had been ordered
by the land office to let go of the Alaska
matters on May 2, 1908, and to devote him
self to the Oregon land cases."
"I have heard so."
Mr. Brandeis attacked the witness from
time to tlma with characteristic severity,
but Mr Todd .answered bluntly and In a
manner which seemed to irritate the at
Na Eteroff Contract.
Mr. Todd testified as to the Wilson cosl
land cases In which he appeared as
prosecutor, that there never was an escrow
agreement drawn up In this case so rar as
the record showed.
Glavis had testified that he had been
told that Mr. Balllnger had drawn up such
an agreement ana mat rraua ui a iru
nature was Involved In the transaction.
Mr. Todd said ths escrgw agreement in
the Wilson case was a verbal .one. Mr.
Balllnger did draw up deeds for two of
the claimants. So far as he knew, that
was his only connection with the esse.
Mr. Brandeis put the two rlee; in evidence.
They bore the date of August. 1902.
Mr. Brsndels said he would undertake
to show to the committee thst Attorney
General Wickersham had few. If any, facts
befor him upon which to base his crit
icisms of Glavls for procrastination and
alleged failure to bring criminal prosecu
Mr. Todd safd he knew of no agreement
from which Mr. Balllnger's name was to
bo left .out of the Wilson coal company
cases. As a miner of fact. Mr. Balllnger's
name did appear Several times In the
Witness Favorable to Balllngrer.
Mr. Todd admitted he had taken an Inter
est in the proceedings before the commit
tee and his Interest was favorable to Mr,
ttalllnger. He said his Interest had been
aroused by the statement In a paper that
certain rK:ords In his office had been
rhansed. He examined the records anil
found the charge was false.
As to the letters alleged to have been
concealed by Glavis. Mr. Todd said ha did
not consider the evidence against Glavls
sufficient, to warrant a prosecution and so
wrote to the attorney general.
Mr. Vertrees resd from a ststement by
Commissioner Dennett a telegram, bearing
a date In April, and saying criminal pro
secutions must be In hand the following
month. He read thla In Justification of
Attorney General Wlckersham'S statement
as to the presentation of testimony In May
190a, snd to contradict Mr. Brandeis. Ths
latter, however, ssld he had mentioned this

rapid, although not precipitate, - stages
un4g with a more naturally developed
system they are able at twenty, at thirty
and at forty years to outstrip easily all
competitors In the race with figures.
To this latter class, it now appears, be
longs Arthur F. Qrlffith, (known on the
vaudeville stage as- "Marvelous Griffith.")
This youns man he has vet n attain hi
thirtieth year Is possessed of extraordi
nary powers or mental calculation, has a
remarkable memory for figures, and Is
able to carry oh several mathematical
operations in his mind at the same time.
The truly wonderful part of his story lies
In the fact that he Is a product of the
Without pen, pencil, or paper; without
slate, blackboard, or chalk, this wizard
of figures can raise a figure to the sixth
power in about eleven seconds; can multi
ply threa figures by three figures in five
seconds, can multiply nine figures by nlno
figures in eight seconds. Griffith deals In
millions and quadrillions rather than In the
ordinary digits. But this figure faculty
of his has grown so wondrously that its
great development has rendered difficult
tha proper cultivation of other mental fac
ulties. Thus Griffith's aptitude Is for fig
ures entirely, rather than for a conversa
tion on any general curent theme. In. fact,
he lives in flgues. Walking, he simul
taneously calculates distance, time, and
energy. His distance he reduces to Inches,
time to seconds, and In computing his ex
penditure of energy the problom winds Its
solution in his conception of the size of his
next meat. Again, his narrowness of com
prehension In general matters Is illustrated,
for Griffith's meals all are built around
ham and eggs, mainly eggs. ''
For years he has been the bewilderment
of mathematical and psychological profes
sors In America's foremost seats of learn
ing. Members of these departments of
Harvard and Vale universities have quizsed
him on his capacities for mental calcula
tion. Chicago and Indiana universities.
Armour Institute, and Northwestern uni
versity, too, have experienced his mar
Within a few days he convinced many
skeptics among the mathematical and
psychological professors at Harvard that
he Is possessed of the powers which he
claims. As a result of this exhibition, In
which twoscore of professors were aligned
against him and shot at him friendly
broadsides of queries and. problems Involv
ing every phase of mathematical calcula
tion except the "fourth dimension," he re
ceived from Prof. Hugo Munsterberg, pro
fessor In psychology, a testimonial of his
Griffith is always ready with demonstra
tions of his marvelous power. Ha rattles
forth a succession of words and figures
mainly figures forming his query, and be
fore one can follow him has it answered.
The following Include a few suggestions
which he makes for an examination in
mathematics. Ha claims to have ths an
swer to each at his tongue's end:
What is the compound interest on 1
cent at ( per cent from the birth of Christ
to the present date, and how far would
that many sliver dollars reach In the air If
placed flat and against each other on every
square foot of a clear and level tile floor.
23.000 miles In circumference?
"Which numbers with six figures to each,
raised to the sixteenth pdwer, make 219,681
the last six figures, and what Is the six
teenth powers of each of those numbers?
'What Is the sum of twenty-five numbers
with twenty-five digits each that always
will divide two with ths exponent twenty-
five out evenly with only two of the. digits
In each number?
'What two sums of all numbers from 1
upward added makes a sum of all numbers
from 1 upwsrd; substracted leave a sum of
all numbers from 1 upward, and multiplied
make a sum of all numbers from 1 upward
'How many standplpea 24.000 miles In

water If It required 61,440 drops of water to
make ona gallon."
"Light mental exercises," Mrk Griffith
In connection with his wonderful memory
It Is Interesting, perhaps, to note that
Griffith claims to be able readily to recall
numbrs by reason of a sort of mental
biographic operstlnn. He says that ths
mention of a number Is followed by Its ap
pearance before his mind's eye, literally,
and that then there Is communicated to
him tha ona system of the 1.500 which he
has evolved to aid him properly In an ex
peditiously correct solution. New Tork
