GARFIELD ORDER TEMPORARY
Cancellation Was Necessary
Step, He Declares.
POWER SITES PROTECTED
.Head of Federal Department Asserts
Water Resources Hate Sow
Been Carefully located
and Set Aside.
OKEGOX NEWS BUREAU. Washing
ton, Nov. 7. "My cancellation of the
-withdrawal of 1.500.0CO acres by Secre
tary Garfield to protect water power sites
on the public domain, and the substi
tution therefor of a withdrawal order
withholding from settlement, location or
entry 300,000 acres was wholly promotive
not submersive of the conservation pol
icy," said Secretary Bellinger, In an au
thorised interview today.
This interview is the first official de
fense OH hia course that the Secretary of
the Interior has put forward since the
opening of the Flnchot-Ballinger row,
and expresses the sentiments of Judge
Ballinger with respect to this important
phase of the conservation policy. The
interview was. given at the behest of a
score of correspondents who sought to
set the Secretary right before the coun
try, and to correct misapprehension that
might arise from badly distorted reports
heretofore given wide publicity. ,
Step Was logical One.
"My withdrawal," continued the Sec
retary, "was the next logical step in
the prosecution of the policy of conserv
ing the wster power of the Federal do
main and one which Secretary Garfield
must have taken had he remained in
office. The first order waa a blanket
withdrawal. Issued to meet en emer
gency, and without taking time to as
certain Just where the power sites were
"Intelligent prosecution of the policy
demanded that aa soon as possible there
after these sites be located and the lands
not needed to protect them be restored
"That the Garfield withdrawal was a
tentative and emergency order Is obvious
from some of the facts connected with
It." continued the Secretary. "For ex
ample, there were a number of instances
where land 30 and 36 miles from the
streams was withdrawn under that or
der. Again, portions of the streams
'were not withdrawn at all. Take the
' case of the Owyhee Kiver. in Oregon;
. 40 miles of it was skipped entirely, while
another 30 miles, where the stream Is
almost level and no water power could
be developed, was Included.
Patented Land Included.
"Then, again, many thousands of acres
which had been patented that is, had
passed completely from the possession of
the Government were included. Tou
must see. therefore, that it would be
an unwarranted reflection on Secretary
Garfield to assume that he would not
have done precisely what I did, ascer
tain as soon as - practicable where the
power aites were actually located, and
issue a new order withdrawing them
from settlement and restoring to entry
all lands sot needed for that purpose."
"Mr. Secretary, it is asserted that you
first revoked the Garfield order about
April 7. and did not Issue your new order
until May 4. and that opportunity was
thus afforded to those who would secure
possession of the water sites to do so In
the interim. Is that correct?" was
Sites Are All Held.
"Tsat is only partly correct." replied
the Secretary. "The withdrawal of more
than 1.000.000 acres not needed to con
serve the power sites raised a storm of
protest. On Investigation I found that
these protests were warranted. I found,
further, that by utilising the Geological
Survey instead of the Reclamation Serv
ice, which had been employed by my
predecessor. I could secure accurate in
formation as to the location of the power
sitea On consultation with the legal
officers of my department I found that I
could make withdrawal orders retroac
tive; that Is. that could issue with
drawal orders later which would effect
ually protect any power sites within any
entries which might have been made in
"The Reclamation Service, when called
on for Information as to the actual loca
tion of power sites, reported that it did
not possess any and recommended that
the lands withdrawn be opened to entry
without the usual notice, as the lands
had been withdrawn only a short time.
Omission of the notice is optional with
the Secretary and not a legal require
ment. The retroactive provision of the
subsequent withdrawals operated com
pletely to conserve the sites, even during
the interim. As I have said before, not
a single power site has passed out of
the possession of the government during
Better Protection Given.
"As a mailer of fact, the withdrawals
ordered by me protected fi percent more
power sites than were conserved by. the

F. H.' Blochberger, publisher or the West
iche Canada Post, at Vancouver, may
without fear of dispute, lay claim to the
world's record for the long jump; more
over the stake was such as would Impel
anyone to put forth extreme exertion.
Herr Blochberger had no conception he
would go as far as he did when he made
his leap for life, but he had little time
to consider, as three bears were behind
him in close pursuit. His thrilling ad
venture had its scene in the Kootenay
Mountains near Rossland, where he has
several mining claims.
Necessity compelled him to visit one
of these and it was while making his
laborious way through three feet of snow
in doing so that he made the unpleasant
discovery that three bears were on his
trail. 'To escape these he determined to
glissade the track of an avalanche and
incidentally he went over what was prac
tically a precipice. After which there
was a whirling through space that .seemed
hours in length and he found himself
buried deep in accumulated snow alive
and comparatively uninjured a thousand
feet below his late pursuers.
With much difficulty he extricated him
self and after several days, during which
he was utterly lost in the wilderness and
endured Inconceivable hardships through
cold and hunger, he finally reached the
railroad line and safety. He is still con
fined to his bed in Rossland as a result
of his experience.

CHICAGO. Nov. 7. (Special.) Bits of
reactionary legislation that the "stand-

over next Congress are amendments to
the anti-trust law and to the acts deal

robbed of much of their efficacy, accord
ing to Senator Albert B. Cummins, of
Iowa, "insurgent" Republican.
If the "3tand-patters" ' do attempt to
foist such legislation as th.s through Con

kind of a fight by the "progressives"
which Senator Cummins thinks is the
correct term by which to designate him
self and others of his views.

The Senator stopped loqlr enough today
in the receipts of telegrams, telephone
messages and call congratulatory of
his Sarquette Club speech of Saturday
night to discuss what he believes are
going to be the vital matters to be
brought before Congress this Winter.
And In this view the anti-trust law and
the Interstate Commerce Commission will
hold the center of the stage.
"While I am-of the opinion that Presi
dent Taft is sincere and does not wish
reactionary measure's to pass at Wash
ington." .said Senator Cummins, "never-
theless, it la true that he is surrounded
by some extraordinary conservative- In
fluences. Those conservative influences
are most anxious to have the force taken
from the anti-trust law and the power
removed, from the. Interstate. Commerce

two is likely to be the chief business to
