REPLY MADE TO REPORT
Roseburg Land Officials Meet
Three Charges of Inspector.
ALL WRONGDOING IS DENIED
indications 'Are Hitchcock Is Trying
to Force Then Out, Since His
Protest Against Their Re
appointment Was Ignored.
ORBGONIAN NEWS BUREAU, "Wash
ington, Nov. 30. It can be stated on ex
cellent authority that neither Register
Bridges nor Receiver Booth, of the Rose
bun; land office, has signified his "willing
ness to tender his resignation since the
offices were recently investigated by In
spector Greene. On the contrary. It can
be said that Greene, after a most search
ing examination of the Roseburg office,
dug up a small array of facts which he
designated "Charges Against Booth and
Bridges," and -without presenting his
facts, told the register and the receiver
If they "would submit their resignations to
him "ho would see that they were ac
cepted and the case against them would
Inspector Greene Is Secretary Hitch
cock's personal representative In Oregon.
Ever since Booth and Bridges were ap
pointed last February over the protest of
Secretary Hitchcock, Greene has been
busy In and about Rosburg, and has at
last compiled a statement which Is now
before Secretary Hitchcock, and which, it
Is believed, will be used by the Secretary
In an endeavor to force both Bridges and
Booth out of office.
Greene's report bears every earmark of
having been propared under Instructions.
Greene makes three points against the
Stowed away in the flies he found an
old plat made when Booth and Bridges
were first appointed, showing that cer
tain lands were selected by certain par
ties, and subsequently original selections
were scratched out and other names sub
stituted. This is irregular, but an ex
planation is offered.
Again, Greene reports that a certain
man at Roseburg had a key to the local
land office, that he had access to the
land office records at all times and made
iBiptoper use of Information he gained in
this manner. The land officers' say the
individual referred to has a contract tor
making land office maps, and a separate
room adjoining the land office has been
set apart in which be shall do the work.
This office Is cut off from the land office
by a bolted door, and it is denied this
man ever had access to the land office
The third charge is that the land offi
cers secured an allowance of $75 for hire
of stenographer lor one month, and In
stead of expending this sum in one month
they divided it up and paid a stenogra
pher $25 for three successive months.
This charge is admitted, and the land
officers add they paid HO a month addi
tional out of their own pockets to the
Greene's entire report is written in a
way to make the most of his charges, yet
all the Irregularities he finds were passed
over by every other inspector who has
gone over the Roseburg office, as either
Inconsequential or utterly unworthy of
Secretary Hitchcock has never forgot
ten the manner in which the President
overruled him in appointing Booth and
Bridges, and there is every indication
that he will attempt to force both offi
cials out In order to vindicate himself.
Neither Senator Mitchell nor Senator
Fulton has taken up this case with the
Secretary or with the President, nor has
the Secretary consulted them.

BURTON CASE IS ARGUED.
Supreme Court Hears Side of Senator
Charged With Accepting Bribe.
WASHINGTON, Nov. 30. The Supremo
Court today heard arguments In the case
of Senator J. R. Burton, of Kansas, who
appealed from the judgment of the. Dis
trict Court for the Eastern District of
Missouri. Senator Burton was tried on
a charge of receiving compensation from
parties for representing them before the
Potst office Department, alleged to be con
trary to section 17S2 of the revised stat
utes. The lower court sentenced him to
pay a fine of $2500 and to Imprisonment
for six months. The attorneys for Sena
tor Burton entered a general denial of
guilt and submitted an extended brief
in support of their contentions that the
court below erred In not directing a ver
dict of not guilty. Senator Burton was
In court during the argument.
Senator Long and Commissioner Ware,
both of Kansas, also were present dur
ing the argument. Judge John F. Dillon,
senior counsel for Senator Burton, opened
the argument. He stated he would not
make the defense upon any technical
grounds, but on Its merits and on con
stitutional grounds. He declared that
the only chargo made in the Indictment
was not tried before the Jury and the
Jury was not allowed to pasB upon it. He
also stated that the Missouri court had
no jurisdiction, as the alleged offense
was committed In "Washington.
Judge Dillon occupied the time of the
court until adjournment. He maintained
that the United States was-not a party
in interest in the case in which Senator
Burton appeared in the Postofflce Depart
ment Justice Harlan asked If the United
States were not interested in protecting
its malls against fraud, to which General
Dillon replied the United States was no
more a party to such cases than It was to
all other Governmental business, and "that
It wag clearly the Intent of the law that
the United States should be Interested,
as It would be interested In cases of a
claim against it.
Senators Culberson and Mitchell were in
court during part of the argument.

FULTON DISCUSSES TARIFF.
He Is for Revision if Appropriations
Are to Be Reduced.
OREGONIAN NEWS BUREAU, Wash
ington, Nov. 30i "If we are not going
to spend money on necessary Federal
improvements, then I am in favor of
tariff revision," said Senator Fulton to
day, after making inquiries which tend
to show that the leaders In Congress
will strain a point to be economical at
the coming session. Senator Fulton is
anxious to procure liberal appropria
tions for the Columbia River and other
river and harbor improvements, . and
will make every effort to secure the
amounts asked for by Major Langntt
in his estimates.
"The Columbia River Improvement is
going to be completed by the Govern
ment anyway," said Senator Fulton,
"and why not appropriate enough
money while we are at it to complete
the work, especially when the money
is inHhe Treasury and available. If
they are going to hold down expendi
tures just to be economical, accumulate
a big surplus, and will not allow us to
spend that surplus on necessary im
provements, -then I am in favor of re
vising the tariff."
Speaking generally on the tariff ques
tion, Senator Fulton said:
. "My conviction is that there is
neither necessity nor widespread de
mand lor an early revision of the tariff.
I see no occasion for an extra session
to consider tariff legislation. The rev
enues at the present time do not ex
ceed the requirements of the Govern
ment, and in any revision that is un
dertaken core will have to be exer
cised that tho revenues shall not be re
duced below the requirements. While
1 am disposed' to believe that there are
schedules that may be properly revised
and duties lowered without endangering
the aggregate receipts of the Govern
ment, my opinion is that they are few,
and I don't believe the best interests of
the country would justify wholesale re
vision. At the same time, I do not see
how any other can be undertaken."
i Senator Fulton called on PresIlWtl-
A SAFE STORE
"We have spoken of the safety of this storaia, other Tvays,
its fireproof steel and cement building its great fire-es
capes, standpipes and hose, heavy firedoors and walls,
monster qiuck-riinning elevators, etc.; and today we call
attention to another point of safety ;Lt contains. It is told
of the founder of a jewelry business that still prospers
here in Portland that a 10-year-old boy c.ould be sent to
the store to buy a diamond, and that he would return with
'as good a stone as the most discerning expert would be
able to purchase with the same amount of money. In a
business which offers all sorts of temptations to engage in
fraud and deceit, and against which the public has very
little protection until within recent years none at all
this reputation has stood for generations, and every per-
s6n engaged in the manufacture and sale of jewelry is
familiar with it. There are other jewelry houses, with
reputations equally secure in which the honor of the firm
is guarded perhaps as jealously, but this one has stood the
test of years and stands out today a monument to public
confidence, inspired by sterling honesty. Exactly the
position of this store. It's a safe store; an order by mail
or phone is filled as carefully as though you came in per
son. The child may shop as safely as the adult, and Port
land folk show mighty well their liking for this SAFE
STORE safe at all times, particularly safe during the
crowded holiday season.
