RESIGNATION OF
HERMANN VEILED
Defense Blocks Prosecution's
Efforts to Show How and
- ' Why He Quit Office.
HENEY -MAY REST TODAY
Government Xow Aims to Shatter
Testimony Favoring- Itefendant.
Several Denials Recorded.
More Letters to Be Read.
After repeated efforts yesterday At
torney Heney failed to gret before the jury
the facts concerning the retirement of
Blnser Hermann from the office of Com
missioner of the General Land Office. It
is said that Hermann was requested to
retri-rn and his attorneys fought desperate
ly to prevent the aged defendant from
answering Heney'e questions on the sub
ject. The prosecution sought this evi
dence as an inference that Hermann's
resignation was a sequel to secret land
fraud investigations ordered by Hitch
cock. Judge Wolverton sustained the
objections of the defence.
Prosecutor Heney's promise of Saturday
that he would close the evidence for the
Government at noon Monday was not ful
filled, but the indications are that he will
rest the case today. Harvey W. Scott
testified on direct examination that the
reputation of Hermann "as a man and a
citizen" had been good and that he had
never heard it questioned until accusa
tions In connection with the present case
began.
Retirement Deemed Right.
Mr. aeott was shown an editorial article
published December 30. 1902. in which It
was indicated that The Oregonlan would
Interpose no objection to the retirement
of Blnger Hermann from the office of
Commissioner or from his Senatorial
candidacy, and referred to him as a sleek
and oily politician who had been cared
for in public office for many years. The
article was admittedly written by the
witness, who volunteered responsibility
for all editorials printed in the paper, and
made reference to the attitude of Secre
tary Hitchcock in forcing Hermann to
retire as an indication of the pursuit of
an upright course in Investigation of the
-land frauds.
Attorney Heney will continue the ex
amination of Mr. Scott this morning, and
will use a number of political editorials
written during the period following the
termination of the public services of Her
mann. Attorney Heney will then place
the defendant on the stand in re-cross-examination,
and the case will probably
be submitted to argument in the after
noon. Smith Contradicts Hermann.
Direct and rebuttal testimony alternat
ed between the attorneys In the case
during the day. Heney, in "attempting
to discredit the testimony of Hermann,
called Scott Smith, ex-private secretary
to Secretary Hitchcock. Hermann testi
fied on direct examination that after re
ceiving the Holslnger report, revealing
in detail the frauds of Hyde and Ben
son through their manipulation of the
school lands and ascertaining that one
or more rriembers of his office force were
In collusion with the Califomians, he took
he took the report to the Secretary and
made the 'lawful revelations." At the
Washington trial. Scott Smith testified
lhat he could not remember whether Her
mann brought the Holslnger report to
Secretary Hitchcock. Yesterday, three
years later. Smith said he had refreshed
Ills memory and was positive that Hitch,
cock had heard of the existence of the
report and ordered Hermann to bring it
to the office of the Secretary.
"Hermann arrived in about ten minutes,
and was received with courtesy, but the
Secretary of the Interior was exceedingly
chilly. The Secretary was very much
wrought up over his information," said
Smith.
Other Denials in Testimony.
Smith disputed the testimony of Her
mann that tre Commissioner and Hitch
cock talked over the contents of the re
port. He testified that the Secretary dis
biissed Hermann promptly.
It was also testified by Smith that
he had not seen Emmett Callahan, a
Baker City attorney, in the office of the
Secretary, although Callahan said he
tuade a number of visits to Mr. Hitch
cock while in Washington representing
Protestants against the formation of the
Blue Mountain reserve.
The defense seemed to sustain setbacks
hy the testimony of Tim Davenport, ex
State Land Agent, father of Homer Dav
enport, the cartoonist, and a pioneer of
Oregon, and the redirect examination of
Land Clerk Brown.
Mr. Davenport related an account of a
visit to Washington in 18f7. while Her
mann was Commissioner of the General
lind Office. His mission was to procure
the enactment of a law allowing the state
to trade surveyed school lands for in
demnity lands, located in the Cascade for
est reserve.
'The state had passed a law increas
ing the price of school lands which were
available for lieu land base from $1.25
an acre to tl.50 an acre." Mr. Daven
port testified, "and we saw a chance to
make about $60,000 additional school funds
by securing such a law. We already had
a law allowing the exchange of unsur
veyed school sections inside reserves.
Hermann Answers Telegram.
"I called on Mr. Hermann and asked
his assistance In the matter, and he
readily agreed that It was a good thing.
After my return I wrote him several
letters, three I think, but never re
ceived a reply until after I had tele
graphed htm."
The letters will be offered In evidence
this morning.
Land Clerk Brown testified that in
IS99 the State Land Board adopted a
practice of withdrawing from sale all
school lands which were incorporated
in a forest reserve withdrawal. The
object of this testimony was to estab
lish a reason for the contention of the
Government that Mays, Jones and Sor
enson might have arranged for advance
information from Hermann as to the
date of the withdrawal of the Blue
Mountain Reserve. Such a notice would
enable the conspirators. Attorney Heney
contends, to rush to Salemi and pur
chase the school lands before the with
drawal should become known officially.
Attorney Heney will contend that Her
mann's alleged telegram to Mays, dat
ed July 25. 1902. was in fulfillment of
such an agreement.
One Point Thought Strong.
After traveling1 across the continent
the Washington correspondent of The
Oregontan. Harry J. Brown, did not
give testimony of great value to the
prosecution. Mr. Brown said that on
July 22 he received Information of the
recommendation which Hermann would
that day make in fhe Blue Mountain
Reserve, and that he telegraphed the
news to Portland. The witness was not
oitive, but he thought the news of
the action of the Assistant Secretary In
approving the withdrawal had been ob
tained from the - office of Secretary
Hitchcock. Heney considers as impor
tant an admission of the witness that
the Blue Mountain Reserve was the
only Oregon withdwal of which the
newspaper man received information
prior to the approval of the Secretary
being announced.
To assail the evidence of C. A. Holm-Strom,-the
Government called L. H. Mc
Mahon. The witness said he went to
Salem since this trial began at the re
quest of Tracy C. Becker, of the prose
cution, and engaged Holmstrom In con
versation. Holmstrom. he said, de
clared a strong opposition to the prose
cution of any more land frauds. Holm
strom had testified that Hermann was
not at the office of Meldrum in Sep
tember, 1902, when Attorney Heney
asserts the Blue Mountain conspiracy
was outlined.
More Witnesses Found. -
43y consent of Attorney Heney, coun
sel for Hermann was allowed to intro
duce the testimony of two witnesses,
found between the adjournment of court
Saturday and Monday morning. They
were William M. Reece. now residing
near Eugene, and Richard Morton, a
former resident of Clackamas County.
Mr. Reece testified that as a resident
of Iowa and a constituent of Chairman
Lacey, he was appointed clerk of the
House committee on public lands in al$95,
and that he remained in such position
until 1907. He was in Washington, he
said, during the Hermann trial as Com
missioner of the General Land Office, and
remembered that Hermann frequently
conversed with Chairman Lacey. and at
one time appeared before the committee
with reference to the lieu land act of
1S97. He asserted that Hermann urged
the repeal of the lieu land act, or its
amendment in such manner as to force
applicants for indemnity lands to ac
cept lands on the outside of forest re
serves of the same quality or value as
those surrendered to the Government
Report of Frauds Made.
On cross-examination Mr. Reece testi
fied that he had heard of land frauds
being committed in the public land
states, and that the attention of the
committee was at one time called to
them through Secretary Hitchcock, who
advocated doing away with the timber
and stone act of 1878.
Richard Morton gave evidence of no
particular importance to either side. He
knew Meldrum, he said, and at one time
went to the office of the Surveyor-General
to employ him In the survey of a
piece of land. He was not positive
whether Hermann or Mays was present.
In the examination of his first witness
In rebuttal. Attorney Heney seemed to
aid the defense. W. W. Cathcart, when
called last week as a witness for Her
mann, testified that he visited the office
of Meldrum in 1902, when Hermann and
Mays were not present. That was a
year after the meeting which, the prose
cution contends, was the beginning of
the Blue Mountain conspiracy. Attor
ney Heney recalled Cathcart for cross
examination, and accused him of show
ing an unusual interest in the Hermann
case. Cathcart testified that he came
to Portland In January, and soon after
met Rowland of the Surveyor-General's
office on the street. He Informed Row
land he "had come down to see what you
are going to do to my friend
Hermann." Cathcart then boasted that
he had a son named Hermann Lester
Cathcart.
"I am not ashamed of the boy, his
name or the man he is named after,"
he said.
Promise of Job Denied.
Attorney Worthington was allowed to
recall H. L. Patterson for further cross
examination. Patterson had testified for
the Government that he had seen Mays
and Hermann in the office of Meldrum
in 1901. Attorney Worthington asked
Patterson if he had ever talked with
W. C. Greaves, of Oregon City, concern
ing the trial of Hermann at Washington
in 1907, and had announced that a posi
tion in the Secret Service had been prom
ised him as a reward for the part he was
playing in the Hermann prosecution.
Patterson denied that he had ever talked
with Greaves about the case, or that he
knew Greaves more intimately than to
speak to him in a casual way.
W. C. Greaves was then called to the
witness stand. He testified that he. had
known Patterson for a good many years
and became acquainted with him while
they were both employed in Portland as
truck drivers.
"I met Patterson soon after he re
turned to Oregon City after the Her
mann trial." said Greaves. "We came
together at the corner of Seventh and
Main streets, and I asked him how he
had been treated. He said he had been
paid his expenses for the trip and had
the promise of an appointment in the
Secret Service. Some time later I en
countered Patterson in frontof the postr
office and asked him about the appoint
ment. He said he had not received it be
cause of some 'hook or crook." "
Defense Evidence Attacked.
Attorney Heney again took up the re
buttal testimony, and attacked the evi
dence of Herman Baumhoer. Baumhoer
had testified that he knew all the par
ties accused of the conspiracy, and as
an employe of the office of the Surveyor
General had been called to the private
office of Meldrum to deliver the note
books which Meldrum asserted had been
examined by Hermann and Mays. At
torney Heney recalled Meldrum. who tes
tified that Baumhoer visited his private
office fully 30 minutes before Hermann
and Mays came in, and that Baumhoer
was not called .for after the men ar
rived. '
