We call the United States Govern-

William H. Taft Is now Chief Justice

■upon the, late Richard A. Ballinger,
.w h ile She.latter wee Secretary of
Interior, caused President Taft, on
September 13.1309, to take the whole
, matter into his own strong hands.
After a thorough investigation he ex
onerated Secretary Ballinger In every
respect, while at the same time he
authorized the "firing” of Glavis.
Another witness: Assistant Attor
ney-General. Oscar Lawler of Los
Angeles, former Grand Master of all
Masons in the State of California, a
man beloved by hosts of good Ameri
cans as a knightly and splendid citi
zen, knows all about “ Loole" Glavis.
and will testify that he .is not to be
believed in any circumstances. He
knows “ Loole” thoroughly well.
Not to Be Trusted.
Mr. Lawler, who is a famous law '
yer, 1 .ndled some cases for the fed
eral government several years ago in
which "Loole" Glavis was the govern
ment's chief witness and special agent.
After this experience. Mr. Lawler de

One week after president Taft “ got

bodily from the government service,
the fellow had the unblushing impu
dencc to address a letter to the Presi
dent, telling him he was being de
ceived and that he. Glavis, had certain
facts and douements which would
prove to him that Secretary Ballinger,
his Chief, and others were crooked—
that they were trying to help the
"Morgan-Guggenhelm Syndicate” se
cure a monopoly upon the coal lands
in Alaska. With a wealth of con
