WASHINGTON DISPATCH TELLS
' OF HIS CAPERS.
Should Have Stayed With the Truth
In the First Instance.
The Associated Press under a Wrsh
ington dat line he ths following to
say of the Lafferty matter:
Representative Lafferty Is still ex
posing himself to the ridicule of his
associates in congress, as well as fur
ther contributing to the mortification
of Oregonlans in Washington, by his
efforts to escape the consequences of
bis indiscretion. The two Washing
ton morning newspapers, cleverly tak
en in by the Oregon representative,
and induced to publish bis biased
statement of the case In first Instance,
have refused to consider Lafferty's
later statements and have repaid the
first imposition by caustically crit
icizing the member from the econd
Oregon' district and by exposing to
their readers his conflicting state
ments."" -:-r"-" "VTn:t'-t'!:H
But Lafferty is still privately cir
culating his 'explanations' to those
who will listen, seemingly to have a
story to fit the peculiar disposition of
,ach listener ,r '' .
While Lafferty's ' writing a letter
seeking to force his acquaintance on
a high school girl. Miss Kubel, was ft
eerio-js breach, especially so in Wash
ington, where social , etiquette , Is so
rigidly prescribed, and the lndlscre
t'on was made greater by the fact that
he is a member of congress, still, bis.
ftrBt offense has almost been lost sight
of in the 'censure brought down upon
him for his subsequent actions In
endeavoring to escape the consequen
ces of his own folly.'" - -!
." In addition to being called a "poor
liar" by Kubel, the girl's father, Laf
ferty has made himself the more ridic
ulous by a number of conflicting and
utterly absurd' statements. Had he
stuck .to the truth in the first Instance,
and 'admitted the authorship of the
Kubel missive, the matter might have
jeen forgotten, and his constituency
both here and In Oregon saved the
mortification of continually apologiz
ing for his conduct. ' 5
First attempting to escape the conT
sequences of the Kubel letter when
confronted by the angry father Laf
ferty laid the blame on his secretary.1
Discovered in this falsehood, which he
later admitted, he then raised cloud
of dust about the real Issue and made
a bid for public sympathy , on the
grounds of ''political persecution."
. Priva -As darning E. D. Baldwin,
former secretary to, Congressman El
lis, for having "peddled the story" all
over Washington,". In his public state
ment to Oregon newspapers Lafferty
Intimated that Baldwin had attempted
to "hold him up" as a consideration
for suppressing the story. The ridic
ulousness of thisj charge caused ih
Washington r jiewspaper; "correspond-.
ents to smile, arf-thetory had been
known to them' for' two : months, had
been repeated by Kubel to at least six
Washington newspaper men and told
by Miss Kubel to many of her girl
friends. : '" ' ' '" .'. :
Lafferty next tried the "political
sympathy tack", by declaring the
whole matter 'an attempt on the part
Of certain Washington newspaper cor
respondents to "ruin hla political ca
reer" because he had openly declared
himself to be an insurgent. He cited
the watermark in the second Kubel
Utter to show It had been prepared
by his political enemies in Oregon
written In OTegon on "paper exclusive
ly for Portland firm. The mount
Hood" watermark - declared by : Laf
ferty to prove this charge turned out
to be "Mount Holly" the brand of
paper used in Kubel's office.1 "
Lafferty's last frantic effort to dis
tract attention from his previous mis
statements "'was the dramatic' am
houncement ' that he was being "con
stantly shadowed' by two Southern
Pacific detectives.' : 1 ' His' activity" in
the' Oregon land grant 'case,' he: as
serted, made blm the "only man who
stood In the way of "the railroad com
pany In keeping millions of acres of
Oregon land from" the people' ' 'He
must be silenced at any cos If with the
lonetchampIoii of the' people embar
rassed and dlscomfitted, the railroad
could then work Its own sweet will. ' 1
H-e gate the names of these two
fouthcrn I'scif.o detectives to at leapt f"
three V.'afckluton newgpiij.er men, ar.d
directly charged tlitai Mrllxiss
who were "sfcadowins him day e.nd
niht." The cettspsjier men k- 1
up the two "detftttives" and foutxl one
o fthem was an ex-member of the
house from Kentucky, e,nd neither of
them In any way open to the Lafferty
charge.
Had the correspondents accepted
Lafferty's accusation and sent out the
story, as he urged them to do. In the
first' instance, the member from the
second Oregon district would now un
doubtedly be the defendant in a big
damage suit.
That Mr. Lafferty has at last come
to a realization that all of the notor
iety was brought upon himself by his
own actions la evidenced by the fact
that he has recently announced that
";he incident is closed" so far as he
Is concerned. ,. ....'
