' uiil of Mitchell aDd Fulcon
- That They Are in tae
Cont piracy.
Washington, p. C, CM. 28.
Secretary Hitchcock for the first
time coneed ted tp an interview tv
, day oa the Of g in ltnd friad.-. Hj
said: "There are ovhers besides
Asa B. Thoixip-Qn, who m be dis
missed from tnj receivership of tbe
lan.i office at La Grande, who will
be suspended or discharged, but 1
. don't lock1 for whole sale decapita
tion. Our investigation is Dearly
coiliileted and as we complete one
caba we tarn it over to the officials
of tbe di partment of justice, .who
will taki it into the courts. In a
fhort time we will take the fall re
.iort over to the department of jus
tic, which will tot be mu.de- pao-
lie, but we wili take the public in
to our confidence by making a short
Fa,en:em. We kpt the matter se
cr t l r th It si bice ' m Titbs be
cause publicity would have, foiled
juptice. 1 lisre is conspiracy no
doubt arid eome public 'officials are
in it, but it i- gross exaggeration to1
say theff framds are the greatest in
the hid.ory of the department.
There .have bten otbtrs, which arise
lierjodicully, but they must be fer
reted out. In the present frauds I
thoulJ say about 1.000 acres of
timber lrd are involved at $1 25
to $2.50 ner acre," ' ' '
Senator Mitchell and Fulton of
Ort-g-n,' who are mentioned as
Thi'Uipdor.'ei political backer?, had
a long conference with; Secretary
'.-Hitchcock ibis morning. Af ertbe
meeting S viator Fulton paid:
"It if trua we were Thompson's
backets, but that makes . ao d ff r
.nce. I ad ari inkling, of tin kf-
. furs while inOcegon and discussed
the mafer with the district attor
nsy there. .Thompson will- have to
fight b own way. If guilty, roy
co'I-jague and I waul him S'ut to
th peni en iary, and we' bo told
Srcretury Htehcock.. We al 0 told
hiia ht Laa our full support, in' the
policy he is pursuing. We-want
': liim to clean tbe rascals out. I do
. njt think we will find many public
officials involved. True, there is a
copppira?y, but ;it is principally
jauai g piivate citiz9ns, . aided and
. ibettd w a-few officials, perhaps,
who rteort to ll sorts of schemes
, ;to obtain public lnd.?. I don't
Relieve, however, that, the officials
fare largely i . vol ved, nor will it taJ
info millions."- .
Secretary Hitchcock lar rbo
'firmed the fctatement relative roihe '
usupport tbe senators premised him.
. Blotter Mitchell and Fulton de
liotiijded charranled falsehoods
the following: sTaterafnts app8ariog
in today's Washington telegrams to
the New Yotk Suu.
"Although official confirmation
cannot be obtained here it is prac
tically certain that the depriment
under investigation i 1 involve
'HJailed States, senators Mitchell and
-Fulton and . Representative Wil
liams n of Oregon, who copa posed ja
lel0gauon .. that '" recommended
'Thomp?ou's appointment at La
Grande. ' ; ' . . -J "'-
"It fa known that the secretary's
feeling toward these men has be
come very bitter tince investigation
was started and it is mow "than
poshible that be will ask President
Roosevelt, not to consider "any ' r-
commtniatiou mat may iuy
(for a buccb sor to Tbom'pFon.'-'
Y B;th tenntors ca'led on Hitch
coek today who expressed a desire
to have the LGiande office opened
for business as soon as po sible.
At Secretary Hitphcock'a sugges
tion Senators Mitchell and Fulton
telegraphed District Attorney Hall
-&b iollowe: - . - j
"'White the srerttary has eus
. upended Thompson, he does ' not
thirik that he should be. absolutely.
- removed until he has had an - op:
. portunity to defend himself on tri
tl. Toe secretary, - therefore, re
quested us to ascertain from you
y whether tbe trial could be expedit
ed and about how soon you think
tbe cast "can be tried.. Kindly con
sult with Judge Bellinger and ad--vise
us by wire at' earliest p it-sibie
moment. ,
PArt.la.nd. Oct. 28. The Oreeo-

them with forgery and conspiracy
in a cnVmmn to defraud the govern

are expected today." It is .,, tinder-

btrtt Xr identity 6p j whnm there
has bte'n c'oHdtrab!eptculation.
The, indictments agaiiist the trio
from Eugene were not formerly re
turned into -court yesterday, but
when the jury appeared to hand in
another . indictment. It ws an
i omced that these three matters
were ready for return, and the judge
otdered them sant in. As soon as
this is done the defendants will he
re arrested and placed under new
bonds for appearance at trial. It is
expected that the new bonds will
be in the sum of iso.oi.o eacb, in
stead of $2,ooo, an at present. , The
final trial of tbe cses will probably
be had during November -or Da
cember. Toe findings of the jury in the
case of tbe three accuted is a volu
minous affiir covering 55 pages. A
total of 2B counts, were returned. In
tbe matters of fraudulent transac
tions that have been brought before
the jury, according to reliable in
formation, Miss Ware figured more
prominently ih.n either of her two
co-conpir4tori. In . other words
she, as jt has been Expressed, was
thB tool used by the others to attain
desired end? aud afsume. the burd
