Refuses to Discuss Roosevelt Inter
view and Ballinger.
NEW YORK, May 30. Gifford Pln
chot, former chief forester of the
United States, was ready as ever to
discuss forest conservation problems
when the liner Arabic on which he was
a passenger got to her pier today
from Europe, where Mr. Plnchot met
Colonel Roosevelt shortly after the
latter returned from Africa.
Mr. Pinchot was uncommunicative
when politics was broached and would
not discuss the pending controversy.
with Secretary of the Interior Ballin
ger. "I met Colonel Roosevelt at Porto
Maurizio near Genoa," said the former
forester, "and he appeared In splendid
physical trim. I never saw him look
ing much better. I was delighted at
learning he would address the Con
gress of the Conservation Association
to be held the first week In Septem
ber." "It has been cabled," said one Inter
viewer, "that you and Colonel Roose
velt went out into a forest and had a
very earnest conversation."
Mr. Plnchot laughed heartily and
"Well, that is Indeed a most beauti
ful country, but there really is not any
forest about. The scenery consists
principally of olive trees."
One questioner mentioned the name
of Secretary Balllnger,-but Mr. Pinchot
"I can't discuss the matter of the In
quiry nor anything In that line. As a
matter of fact I have not been In close
touch with the situation since I left
Mr. Plnchot was spoken to about the
summing up of Mr. Vertrees on Satur
day In the Ballinger inquiry and said:
"Oh, I read about that. Some papers
were handed to me aboard the boat
last night. I see, he says I'm 'a small
possum up a big tree. Oh, well " the
rest Of the remark was lost In laughter.
Mistaken for Eorgcr by Bank Detec
tives, He Now Threatens
Damage Suit.
LOS ANGELES. Cal., May 30. (Special.)
Arrested two weeks ago without a war
rant, on the supposition that he might
be "a forger wanted in Texas, held six
days in the Orange County jail, taken to
San Antonio and thrown into a cell reek
ing with filth and alive with rodents and
vermin, Louie Schneiderman, of Puller
ton, returned here toda - t. ith proofs of
his innocence.
A. J. Van Housten, alias O. H. Nance,
who in no way resembles Schneiderman,
is wanted for the crime and for inexplic
able reasons the Fullerton man, who Is a
returned Methodist missionary from
South Africa, and now in the tailoring
business, was arrested by a detective
agency representing the American Bank
ers' Association. He showed papers es
tablishing his Identity and reputation be
yond question, to all appearances, but to
no avail and finally waived extradition in
the hope of being sooner freed.
The president and other officers of the
Alamo National Bank, which suffered by
the forgeries stated at a glance that he
was not the man wanted and gave him a
strong letter to that effect. He now
threatens suit against the bankers as

Extension of Movement to Other
Secondary Schools Predicted.
' Funds Sought Here.
The day of the poorly paid instructor
in secondary schools is past if the
movement inaugurated by Phillips-Exeter
Academy becomes general and,
from the statements made yesterday
by Harlan Page Amen, principal of the
Academy, it appears very probable the
movement will become general In a
few years.
The Exeter plan is to raise a foun
dation large enough to provide- in
creases in the teachers' salaries, the
school itself providing the original
The Carnegie foundation provided for
increasing the emoluments received by
college professors, but up to the pre
sent there has been no attempt to do
anything that will increase the salaries
paid secondary teachers.
Educationalists are noticing with
dismay that the class of men applying
for work as teachers is moving in a
retrograde direction and it is felt that
unless something be done to make it
possible for them to live on a higher
scale and to have a better standard of
comfort, the eventual result will be the
entire elimination of the well-trained
Phillips-Exeter Academy is raising a
foundation of $350,000 to increase sal
aries and to enable the academy to ob
tain as high-grade men as can the col
leges which are assisted by the Car
negie Foundation. Of this sum $300,
000 has been raised, said Professor
Amen yesterday, and he Has been mak
ing a tour of the West to raise the
remainder among the Western men
who are graduates of the old school.
"I am meeting a great number" of the
fellows," said Principal Amen, "and I
am sure we shall raise the amount we
are after.
"There are a great number of our
graduates out In this country there
are 7000 living graduates of the school.
"We are one of ten schools exchang
ing our staff every year with foreign
schools. For instance, one year we
send one of our men to Germany, re
ceiving one of their men in return.
Light work is given on both sides of the
water, so that the men are enabled to
study the foreign systems and each
school pays its man two-thirds of his
regular salary, the foreign school also
adding to the stipend.
"By this means we are incorporating
a number of the best foreign ideas in
our American schools and, on the other
side, they have the opportunity to learn
much from us."
Principal Page has been a guest of
C. F. Adams, president of the Security
Savings & Trust Company, and has
kept in touch with King Wilson, a local
attorney, both of whom are graduates
of Exeter.
Action Regarding Proposed Strike
Will Be Taken Tonight.
The regular meeting of the Team
sters' Union' will be held tonight in
the Bartenders' League Hall, when a
definite course of action will be deter
mined on as to a strike. The team
sters have threatened to strike unless
their demand for an increase in wages
is granted, while the transfer com
panies are Just as determined that the
raise will not be. granted.
An Informal meeting was held last
night by a number of the teamsters,
but all efforts to find out what action
was taken proved futile.. If it Is de
cided to strike,, the tieuj will probabj.7
occur Wednesday, June 1.
A rumor has been current for sev
eral days that 350 strike-breakers from
Chicago are enroute to Portland, but
this is absolutely denied by both the
teamsters and the transfer companies.

Diminished Thin Blue Line Marches
Through New York Streets With
Younger Men of Regular Army
and National Guard.
NEW YORK, May 30. New York to
day observed Memorial day, not merely
with traditional ceremony, but with the
unusual honor of the presence in the city
of the President of the United States to
review the parade of the veterans. Ideal
weather conditions prevailed. Enormous
crowds were drawn to the streets and
avenues through which marched the rapidly-thinning
ranks of blue, and a great
host was massed about the stand at the
Soldiers' and Sailors' Monument, where
President Taft watched the Grand Army
men and kindred organizations pass In
As usual, the day was kept as a gen
eral holiday, and after the morning's Im
pressive ceremonial the city's throngs
gave themselves up to recreation.
President Taft arrived early from
Washington, and was driven to the home
of his brother, Henry Taft. Breakfast
there was followed by a meeting with
the other members o fthe reviewing party
and a brief reception at the Sherman
Square Hotel.
Veterans Form Guard of Honor.
The trip to the reviewing stand was
then in order, with the old guard as the
President's special escort and a guard of
honor comprising the veteran corps. Ar
tillery and Military Society of the War
of 1812. The distinguished party Invited
to surround Mr. Taft on the reviewing
stand comprised Major-General Daniel E.
Sickles and Major-General Julius H.
Starr, Brigadiers-General Anson G. Mc
Cook, Horace Porter, Nicholas W. Day.
Walter Howe, John T. Lockman and
Thomas H. Hubbard, with a number of
Congressmen and other notables.
The detachment of Regular Army men
headed the marchers, whose route was
shortened, s that the aging veterans
would not be too greatly fatigued by
their tramp. Followed by sailors and
marines from the battleships Connecticut
and Rhode Island, the head of the parade
moved up West End avenue to Seventy
second street, and into Riverside Drive
and On OaSt the Ktnnr t th mnnnmont
The state troops, including the Seventh., ist ana oin tcegiments, marched
next and then came the veterans.
Ovation Given President.
After' reviewing the parade, the Presi
dent returned to his brother's residence
for luncheon. He had received a great
ovation all along the route on the way
to the stand and was repeatedly cheered
as he took the place of iionor among
the reviewers. Mr. . Taft smiled and
bowed and beamed at the tributes.
As the ranks of the veterans came
marching by, the acclaim of the throngs
was turned from the reviewers to the
reviewed. Salvos of applause were
launched as the veterans, many of the
older among them- obviously, tiring from
their tramp, filed past the stand, salut
ing as they passed. None joined more
heartily in the cheering for the men In
line than the President himself.
Taft to Make Another Trip.
Numerous other ceremonies of a patri
otic nature featured the day in the city.
These included services at Grant's Tomb
on Riverside Drive by U. S. Grant Post
and the decoration of graves of veterans
in the cemeteries, while Grand Army
exercises were held tonight in Carnegie
Hall. An interesting civic event of the
holiday was the workhorse parade up
Fifth avenue. At New Rochelle, the home
of Thomas Paine, the Paine National Mu
seum was dedicated.
The President reUirned to Washington
this afternoon, and his return will be
marked with preparations for his next
trip, which will begin next Thursday
morning, and last four days. He will go
to Bryn Mawr (Pa.) College for com
mencement; to Ada, O., to deliver a grad
uating address at Ohio Northern Univer
sity; to Detroit, Mich., to unveil ' tile
statue of General Custer, and to Jackson,
Mich., to deliver an address on the occa
sion of the 50th birthday anniversary of
the Republican party. From Jackson the
President will return to Washington, ar
riving Sunday night. June 5.
Erroneous AVere Talcs Given Out,
She Says Dead Man Cared for
No Woman In Camp.
ASHLAND, Or., May ,29i (To the Edi
tor.) The columns of The Oregonian for
several issues this week have mentioned
the name of myself and my family In
such a humiliating and cruel manner that
I feel compelled to resent a few of the
aspersions, even though they be as false
as they are numerous. So many erron
eous statements have been printed that
I hardly know where to begin. While
the scene of the unfortunate affair was
at Ayers Spur, a ffew miles from Ashland,
the Coroner's Inquiry lasting four days
was held in Ashland immediately, and all
the facts developed.
The statement that the Putnam family
or any member of it had left the country
at any time was wholly untrue. The state
ment that my father was "a transient"
was certainly news to Ashland people,
who have known the family during a
continuous residence of eight years, my
father being a citizen and taxpayer, and
transacted business continuously in Ash
land, is a member of the Modern Wood
men of America, and the entire family
have been members of . the Christian
Church for years. The associating of
the names of the late Jesse Thrasher
and Ed-Davidson as rivals for the affec
tions of myself is so utterly false' that
a mad man could not believe it.
Thrasher had boarded at our boarding
house one week, and the first time I saw
him he sis intoxicated, and was in that
condition on several occasions, and had
never spoken to me at any time except in
the presence of four or more people, and
never showed any intentioin of wanting
to keep company with any lady. Ed
Davidson was described by Ashland papers
as a "miserable wreck from years of dis
sipation and drunkenness." It pains me
greatly to have to mention these clrcum-
A Washington Woman Relates an Ex
perience That Will Be of Value to
All Pain Burdened Women
If you are approaching tha fortieth
year in a run-down condition, you will
be interested in reading of the benefit
that Mrs. John Utter, of PuyaUup,
Wash., received from Dr. Williams' Pink
Pills after other treatments had failed to
help heT. She says: "
I suffered for eight years from all the
pains and sickness that women of my
age are subject to. I was able to work
only part of the time and often could
i'ust drag around. Most people would
tave given up and gone to bed. I was
so nervous that I could not get much
sleep and was subject to headaches and
dizzy spells. My stomach was out of
order all of the tuna and I was troubled
with gas forming on it. I would often
Have smothering spells when I could not
raise myself up.
"I took a great many kinds of medi
cines but found no relief until I followed
a friend's advice and tried Dr. Williams'
Pink Pills. They helped me right away.
I could sleep better, was not so nervous
and became stronger. I used the pill
for some time and was entirely cured.
"Since then I have always had Dr.
Williams Pink Pills in the house. My
husband had a severe case of inflamma
tory rheumatism which settled in hU
hands and feet. A few boxes of the pills
cured him and he has never had a returc
of the disease."
As most of the diseases from which wo
men suffer are directly caused bv a lack oi
blood, Dr. Williams' Jink Pills have
been found unequalled in the treatment
of anaemia, green sickness, delayed de
velopment, after-effects of childbirth and
leucorrhcea. Our free booklet, "Plain
Talks to Women," will be sent to any
suffering woman upon request.
If you have failed to get more than
temporary relief from your suffering, the
treatment is most likely not a blood
builder. Do not neglect then to remove
the cause of your trouble but give Dr.
Williams' Pink Pills a good trial.
Dr. Williams' Pink Pills are sold by all
druggists, or will be sent, postpaid, n
receipt of price, 50 cents per box , six
boxes for $2.50, by the Dr. Williams
Medicine Company, Schenectady, N. Y.
stances, but it is the only way I can
make myself understood to the readers
of The Oregonian outside of Ashland.
My parents having in March under
taken the work of running the boarding
house for the Ashland Manufacturing
Company, I was taking an active hand
in making the enterprise a success, and
having always been able to address peo
ple of all kinds pleasantly and cordially,
I prided myself-in the accomplishment,
and for the first time have had it turned
apparently as a dangerous element in a
girl's character. Being conversant with
good literature, and my mind possessed
wtih good Ideals and a worthy ambition
to make something of myself, it is with
great humiliation that I am compelled to
see myself and my character portrayed
in the columns of The Oregonian by re
ports printed from other towns, the
writers of which never saw or heard of
me in their lives before and have evi
dently drawn in their imagination an
illiterate, emotional person of. rustic
charm who might fit the position of an
object of rivalry between Inebriated lum
berjacks in order to round out the story.
The jealousy theory and myself as "the
girl In the case" was fairly exploded at
the Coroner's inquest. At the first ses
sion the line of questions asked dis
closed the District Attorney had elimi
nated the six Greeks arrested, and in
the absence of any tangible clew pre
senting itself, he felt compelled to re
sort to his Imagination' and announced
as his text a French saying, "Whenever
a dastardly crime has been committed
and you cannot get a clew, look for the
nearest woman." That is how I became
the "leading lady" in Professor Mulkey's
thrilling drama, and the other interest
ing characters were, picked up from
among the boarders. A young Italian
boarder named Nicholas Joy was duly
elected and staged for the character of
the "'ealous Italian," with three star
chara;ers in the hands of the master
playwright, with Greeks, Italians and
various other characters about a lumber
manufacturing plant to throw in wher
ever desired.
With myself as the 'theoretical motive
of a possible working hypothesis," the
theory was thoroughly tested out, the
District Attorney having uninterrupted
sway, and he did not hesitate to drag
everything imaginable Into the Inquiry
that would open any possible lead to his
French author's theory. It happened to
be a beautiful theory when based upon
moonshine alone. When the time came
to merge the theory to fit the facts the
utter erroneousness of the theory demon
strated Itself so glaringly, the Coroner's
Jury regarded It as a complete failure.
Even District Attorney Mulkey, in an ac
credited interview at Medford on May 25,
Is reported as having discarded the theory
of Jealousy as being the motive, and this
should certainly settle the matter, as Mr.
Mulkey has gone into my personal af
fairs, and the personal affairs of mem
bers of my family to the very bottom,
and neVer hesitated at asking the most
delicate questions in his search for in
formation that might establish his illy
digested theory.
Had he In the start taken the pains
to gather information with which to base
his theory in place of launching the
theory firs and trusting to developments
to establish the truth, there would have
been no "girl in the case" and the news
paper correspondents in other towns
would not have occasion to write such
terrible and humiliating stories concern
ing the character of people they do not
know.' Respectfully,
No doubt Miss Putnam is warranted in
feeling Indignant over the course of the
Investigation and her unpleasant connec
tion with a deplorable tragedy. The Ore
gonian hasn't the slightest doubt that
she states the facts as they are; yet It
feels it ought to add that the news Items
about which she complains were mere re
ports with some inaccuracies of an in
vestigation made by the authorities. A
murder had been committed. It was sur
rounded by many elements of mystery.
It was the duty of the District Attorney
and the authorities to probe the whole
matter to the bottom. In these circum
stances the District Attorney insisted
upon an explanation by individuals who
had a more or less close association with
the dead man. The theory was evolved
that the murder might have occurred
through a jealous dispute over a young
woman's affections. Investigation now
shows that this theory was untenable
and that Miss Putnam was not In any
way involved In any quarrel or dispute
which led to the homicide. The experi
ence has been disagreeable for Miss Put
nam, but since the outcome has. been her
entire vindication as well as the vindi
cation ' of her family. The Oregonian
thinks she ought to feel satisfied that
the whole matter has been thus officially
l and publicly closed.

The Tenderfoot Farmer
It was one of these experimental farmers, who put green
spectacles on his cow and fed her shavings. liis theory
was that it didn't matter what the cow ate so long as she
was fed. The questions of digestion and nourishment had
not entered into his calculations.
It's only a "tenderfoot" farmer that would try such
an experiment with a cow. But many a farmer feeds him
