ON OREGON POLITICS
(Continued From Page 1.)
received from members of the Oregon
delegation. I at once conferred with
Senator Mitchell, whom I told I could
only convince Burns of my Innocence
from all suspicions by surrendering
this correspondence. Senator Mitchell
advised me to turn over to Durns all
such correspondence and since then
I have given the Government all of
the assistance I could in that direc
tion. For this I do not expect any con
sideration from the Government, which
has no case against me. Why, a jury
of Chinamen would acquit me on the
spot and they don't know anything
about land frauds, either.
"At the session of 1903, Fulton and
his friends thought I was entitled to
something and decided to give me the
District Attorneyship. I was given to
understand that Hall was willing that
I should have the office. Fulton had
told me that the position was to be
used to assist In securing his election
to the United states Senate. But
after Stelwer voted for Fulton I don't
believe Hall ever expected that I
would be appointed his successor.
"Yes, I probably wrote a letter to
Mitchell In 1902, indorsing Hall, but
I was writing letters for nearly every
body then, even tried one time to get
something for Mrs. Woodcock."
Brownell's letter to Mitchell, April
2, 1902, was Introduced by the defense.
In that letter Brownell said he had
concluded that after looking over the
situation in Multnomah County he had
decided that it would be better for
Hall to be retained in his position, as
it would be more satisfactory to Mitch
ell and to the party than to have a
new man named. Brownell further
testified that the first intimation he
had that the Government had him un
der suspicion was late in the fall of
1902, before he was elected President
of the Senate, when he was so advised
in . a conversation with Jonathan
Bourne, Jr., Mr. Gates, of Washington
County, and W. P. Keady. The scheme
at that time, testified Brownell, was to
get him to recommend Mr. Gates as
successor to Henry Meldrum, United
States Surveyor-General for Oregon.
At that time Bourne told Brownell
that Greene had told Gates that
Brownell had at one time improperly
used his notarial seal in acknowledg
ing some survey applications.
The following letter was offered as
evidence in the Hall case, but was re
jected, because it did not relate to
the case at bar. The letter.however,
coming from Mr. Brownell to Senator
Mitchell, throws some interesting
sidelights on Oregon politics, and it is
Oregon City, Or., Oct. 28, 1903.
Hon. John H. Mitchell, U. S. Sen
ate, Washington, D. C My Dear Sir
and Friend: As I told you at the time,
I knew that Hall would try to make it
appear that I had some connection
with Meldrum and Wagner in some
things that occurred in the Surveyor
General's office; He called me to see
him yesterday, the grand jury being
in session, and threatened me, of
course claiming that Hitchcock and
over. If Fulton had done what he
ought to have done, I would have had
the plice when he weut back to take
his oath of office. Hall has boon given
all opportunity to work every conceiva
ble string against me that he could
and now 1 believe that Fulton knew It
and has expected him to do it and
has stood in with him. You must re
member that uuless Campbell gets

present strength in this county for

Committee on Coast Defenses, Unit

Nov. 2, 1903, Hon. George C. Brownell,
Attorney at Law, Oregon City, Or.
My Dear Friend Brownell: I am
this morning In receipt of your three
letters, one dated Oregon City, Octo
ber 20, but mail marked October 28;
the next of date October 27, and the
other without date, but mailed the
same date, October 28, consequently
I am unable to say which of the latter
two was written first'
Now, my friend, I am perfectly as
tounded and grieved beyond expres
sion not at you, I do not mean this,
but at the man who has threatened
you and driven you to do what you
have done in the way of giving letters.
I am writing you now in absolute confi
dence. What he has done, if brought
to the attention of the Department,
would not only prevent his reappoint
ment, but would result In his removal
most unceremoniously. No prosecut
ing officer, whether he has a case or
has not, against any man, has any
right to agree to withhold the prosecu
tion, the consideration being an In
dorsement for him for reappointment.
As I say, I am amazed beyond expres
sion that he would do a thing of that
kind and but for your positive state
ment to the contrary, I should not be
lieve it. You are, however, I am sure,
absolutely wrong in regard to Fulton.
Ever since he came here in frequent
talks I have had with him he has ear
nestly adhered to his intention to sup
port Campbell for the place as he
promised you he would do before leav
ing. I cannot believe that he told
Hall that Campbell was to be appoint
ed. Upon the contrary, my dear
friend, and now I am going to tell you

B. F. Newman, one of Oregon's old

they settled on a donation land claim

sisters, of whom G. W Newman, of

I wrote him such a letter, indorsing
