Mitchell Wants to Know
the Charges.
Senator Writes a Letter to Fed
eral Grand Jury.
Assistant District Attorney Heney
Says He Is Willing for Him to
Appear, but He Will Accord
Hm No Special Privileges.
If, therefore, you will kindly advise I
ra when all such testimony has been
submitted on the part of the Govern
ment, I ivjll then be 'ready to to be
fore you in answer to any such
charges as may be made, and I re
spectfully ask that on my appearance
before yon at the close of the Gov
ernment's case I then be advised fully
as to the precise charges, if any,
made against me, and of the nature of
the evidence submitted by the Govern
ment in support thereof. And I also
should bo glad, if not deemed im
proper by your advisors, that the
names of the "witnesses making the
t same be submitted to me at that time.
rrancls J. Heney'a Reply.
Senator Mitchell will reccivo at my
hands the same privileges "which I
irould accord under similar circum
stances to the humblest citizen of the
United States, and I will at-all times
advise the grand Jury not to indict
any man, whether his position in so
ciety is high or low. unless the evi
dence In the possession of the Gov
ernment is sufficient in my judgment
to warrant and sustain a conviction by
a trial Jury. I am ready and willing
to permit Senator Mitchell to appear
before the grand Jury and to ex
amine him about ail the matters
relating to which the Government has
evidence, and with which his name is
in any way connected.
Senator Mitchell had a hard time with
the Federal grand jury yesterday and has
not as yet been allowed to appear before
that body to hear what charges have beon
or will be brought to connect him with the
land frauds being unearthed.
At 10 o'clock he appeared at the door of
the juryroom and handed to the foreman
a letter asking that he be allowed to ap
pear before the jury to answer all ques
tions which might be put to him In regard
to his complicity in any fraud or con
spiracy, but he affixed a clause to the
effect that he would not go before the
body unless he could be presented with the
case against him, and suggesting also that
he bo furnished with the names of the
witnessos testifying to his detriment. Ho
rIfo stipulated In his letter that he would
not go before the jury until all of the
case of the Government had been pre
sented. The letter was considered by the jury
and as a result the Senator was not called
to give his version during the forenoon",
us it had been promised to him that he
should. In the afternoon the Senator ap
peared again at the juryroom and asked
to be admitted, but was met at the door
by Assistant District Attorney Heney and
told that he could perhaps be allowed to
go before the jurors today at 2 o'clock.
Mr. Hermann also takes the same stand
as does the Senator and was given the
same answer when he applied for admis
sion yesterday afternoon.
Far From an Agreement.
The difference of opinion between Sen
ator Mitchell and Mr. Heney seems to
have taken a different turn and an agree
ment is no nearer reached than it was
in the first place. On December 38 Sen
ator Mitchell telegraphed Mr. Heney, stat
ing that he demanded that all charges
against him be fully investigated, and he
lurther demanded in bo many words that
he be allowed to appear before the jury
with his testimony. The telegram was as
Francis J. Heney. Assistant United States
Attorney-General: I will be In Portland Sat
urday morning next, and I demand a full in
vestigation by a grand Jury of any and all
charges, if any, against me. I ajso demand
the right to testify concerning the same before
the grand Jury. JOHN H. MITCHELL.
At the time the telegram was received it
tvaa understood that the Senator would be
accorded no more privilege than would be
given to any citizen, and this seems to

held between Senator Mitchell and Mr.
Heney on Saturday.
Before sending his letter to the jurv
Senator Mitchell wrote to Mr. Heney ap
prising him of the fact that he would
communicate with the jurors. This letter
vhlch was received Monday evening by
Mr. Heney, was as follows:
Portland, Dee. 26, 1004
Hon. Francis J. Heney, Assistant United States
District Attorney, Portland. Oregon-
Dear Slr-I will this evening, or tomorrow
morning, send to IV. H. II. TVade, foreman of
the Federal grand Jury, now in session In this
city, a letter of which the Inclosed is a
duplicate. I trust that you will agreo that I
should be accorded the privilege I ask. I am
ready and earnestly desire to go before the
grand Jury as oon as you have produced be
fore the Jury ail the evidence you have on the
part of the Government, but not until then.
Very respectfully, JOHN H. MITCHELL.
Writes Letter to Grand Jury.
At 10 o'clock yesterday morning the
Senator nppoared at the grand jury room
and asked for TV. H. H. "Wade, the fore
man. TVhen Mr. Wade responded to his
knock the Senator handed him the follow
ing letter:
Por0na. Or., Dec. 23, 1004. TV. H. H.
ale, &q.. Foreman Federal Grand Jury.
Portland. Or. Dear Sir: Street rumor in this
olty for the past ten days and press dispatches
from this city to all parts of the United States
re to the effect that I am being charged with
complicity with others in certain Oregon land
frauds, and that the jury of which you are the
foreman are investigating- ouch charges. I
have- heretofore requested of the prosecuting
officers. Hen. Francis J. Heney, Assistant
United States Dtetrlct Attorney, and Hon.
John H. Hall. United States District Attor
ney, the privilege of going before your body
for the purpose of answering, under oatb. any
charges that may have been lodged with your
body against me, which in any wise impli
cates me In any such frauds.
I. therefore, respectfully ask you, and
through you your associates composing the
Federal grand Jury now In session in this
city, the privilege of going before you for the
ourpose of answering, under oath, any and all-
such charges that may haTO been made just
as soon as the Government has concluded tak
ing of each testimony as it desires to bring
beiore you in support of any charges against
If. therefore, you will kindly advise me when
all such testimony has been submitted on the
part of the Government. J will then be ready to
go before you in answer to any such charges as
rnay be made, and I rocpeottully ask that on
my appearance before you at the close of the
Government's case, as above suggested, that
I then bo advised fully as to the precise
charges, if any, mde against me, and. of the
nature of the evidence submitted by the Gov
ernment in support thereof. And I also should
be. glad if not deemed improper by your ad
visors that the names of the witnesses making
the same be submitted to me at that time.
Sincerely trusting I will be accorded this
privilege, I am, very respectfully,
Strange Request, Says Heney.
Mr. Heney wag seen In regard to
whether or not the demands and requests
of the Senator would be allowed by him,
and consented to make a statement show
ing his attitude on the question. Hereto
fore Mr. Heney has disliked to speak for
publication on any matter in which the
future courso of the grand jury would
have a part, but in view of the fact that
Sonator Mitchell had himself raiaed the
question, he said:
I consider this a roost remarkable and
extraordinary request, under the circum
stances of the case. The grand Jury is an in
vestigating body, and in the very nature of
things no accusation Is made by it again? t
any person, until Jt has fully completed its
investigation, and then no accusation is made
unless the evidence which has been presented
to the grand Jury Justifies the finding of an
indictment in the opinion of at least 12 of its
I understand that Senator Mitchell la a law
yer of considerable experience, and he must
know that the custom of swearing members
of the grand Jury not to reveal anything that
takes place in the grand jury-room is based
on the gravest reasons of public policy, and
is very largely for the very purpose of not
making known the evidence in possession of
the Government, so that the ends of justice
cannot be defeated by the destruction or per
version of such evidence at the instance of
persons Indicted for crime.
Senator Mitchell will receive at my hands
the same privileges which I would accord un
der similar circumstances to the humblest cit
izen of the United States; and I will at all
times advise the grand Jury net to 'indict any
man, whother his position In society is high or
low, unless the evidence in the possession of
the Government is aufflolent In my Judgment
to warrant and sustain a conviction by a trial
jury; and I will advise the jury not to indict
upon the evidence of convictod persons, unless
their evidence Is corroborated hy othor evi
dence upon material points.
In these investigations the grand jury has
absolute power, by majority vote, to control
the manner of conducting them, and can per
mit Senator Mitchell or any other person to
appear before them at any time that they
deem expedient. Personally, X can see no rea
son for extending to Sonator Mitchell any
privileges other than those to which every
other citizen is entitled under similar circum
stances. I shall certainly not accord him any
privileges which are based upon the mere as
sumption that by reason of his official position
ho is entitled to more or other privileges than
other nonofflce-holdlng citizens possess.
Ready for Mitchell to Testify.
I told Senator Mitchell last Saturday that I
would gladly permit him to appear before the
grand Jury today at 2 o'clock, and that I
woud then and there examine him about all
the matters relating to which the Government
has evidence, and with which his name Is in
any way connected. I am still ready and
willing to accord him this privilege, and slnco
the recelpt.of his telegram from Washington
of date December 18, I have shaped the cvl
denco before the grand Jury and have sub
penaed witnesses with this end In view, so
that Senator Mitchell could testify beforo
the grand Jury about all facts wjthln
his knowledge relating to the matters
under investigation, at the earliest possible
moment after his arrival, and would thus be
enabled to return to Washington and attend
to those public duties which he pleaded were
too pressing and urgent to permit hlro to come
here and testify as a witness upon the trial
of Puter, McKlnloy et al.
No innocent man need fear this course of
procedure before tho grand Jurors who are
conducting these Investigations, and they are
the final Judges of the weight and value of the
evidence produced before them.

Forced to fight, tho wounded Russian

country for which he has given his blood.
The Russian peasant of today is the same
barbarian and degenerate that existed in
his country centuries ago; the passing
time has not served to dull the edge of
