a- WAsHINGTO.V, Jane 1. President
?Taft pardoned Franklin P. Maya today
ton the ground that the Government
-prosecutors had pursued improper
methods in securing his conviction of
land frauds at Portland, Or., in ISO.
This Is the second pardon granted
by the President in the famous Mitch
ell-Hermann land cases. Willard N. I
Jones was pardoned a few days ago.
The President declined a year ago tol
pardon Mays. - His change of attitude I
- was due to an investigation of charges
Z "that Government deteotlvea prooured
- advance-lists of men likely to be placed
- In the jury box and investigated each
.' man to learn if he would convict.
Mays was sentenced to four months I
imprisonment and a fine of 110,000. The I
-'enforcement of his sentence had been!
delayed by bis illness and his applica
tion for pardon.
These same allegations against the!
Government affect a pending applica
tion for pardon by Hamilton H. Hend-
Vicks, convicted of subornation of per

Franklin P. Mays, at Eugene today
j attending the commencement exercises
at the university 01 Oregon, wnere n:r
, son is one of the graduates, was noti
fied of his pardon by long distance
telephone, and he replied:
"Well, it has been a long time com

CONVICTION STORY RECALLED
Mays' Case Conducted by Heney and
; Mays was convicted on September IS,
1906. for his part in the Blue Mountain
, .forest reserve conspiracy to cheat the
Government out or a large portion oi
Mts lands. The case was conducted by I
Francis J. Heney and William J. I
t ' Mays, with others, was accused of
.having entered into a conspiracy to

to about 44,000 acres of state school
lands in Crook, Grant, Harney, Mal
heur. Baker, Union, Umatilla and
Wallowa counties, Oregon, through the
use of illegal affidavits and applica
tions and the subsequent inclusion of
such school lands in the Blue Moun
tain forest reserve, thus creating the
possibility of their use as a base In
exchange for valuable timber lands un
der the lieu land act of June 4, 197.
The evidence at the trial of the Blue
Mountain forest reserve case developed
the fact that Mays owned a ranch in
Tygh Valley, Wasco County, Oregon,
and that on July 1, 1901, he engineered
a scheme to have a small addition
made to the Cascade forest reserve.
-It was also shown that Mays acquired
title to all the vacant school lands In
.3his district, and the venture proved
so successiui tnat ne conceivea me
idea of having a much larger reserve
created. Proceeding under this plan
a great many "dummy" applicants
were procured from Portland, who
filed applications on about 44,000 acres
of the 16th and 36th sections tnat
were known to fall within the limits
of the proposed reserve.
The Blue Mountain reserve case was
one of the most bitterly fought con
tests in the land fraud litigation. Mays
and his co-defendants, Willard N. Jones
and George Sorcnson. were defended
by some of the most brilliant lawyers
in Oregon. No effort was spared to
save the defendants, but without avail.
