Telegram From Heney Removes All
oubt of Early Trial Neiihauscn
and Other Officials Are at the
i Disposal of Bristol.
j WASHINGTON". D. C Sept. 7. (Spe
w clal.) Acting Attorney-General RuBsell
I today received a telegram from Francis
J. Heney, which in part explains the de
it lay in resuming tho trial of the pending
I Oregon land fraud cases, and which In
dicates that prosecutions will be resumed
$n the very near future. When Secretary
JGarfieA and Land Commissioner Bal
t linger were on the Pacific Coast they
l discussed the Oregon situation in much
detail with District Attorney Bristol, and
J the Secretary expressed the earnest de
V s're that the pending cases be taken into
5k court for trial as speedily as could be ar-
ranged. His ideas were concurred In by
Mr. Balllnger, and the desire of both
officials was made plain to Mr. Bristol.
1 ' Heney Agrees to Send Records.
Later "the Secretary had a conference
In San Francisco with Mr. Heney and
learned that .he had in his possession'
the records in quite a number of the Ore
gon cases, which be had taken with him,
presuming he would have time to go
back to Oregon and try them. But Air.
Heney's work in prosecuting the San,
Francisco grafters "liatl'TU'k'en more of his
time than he had anticipated, and It had
been Impossible for him to take the Ore
gon land cases. At that conference it
was suggested that the trials might be
expedited If the records - ere sent back
to Mr. Bristol In order that he might
conduct the prosecution Instead of wait
ing for Mr. Heney.
This suggestion met with Mr. Heney's
approval, and he expressed willingness
to expedite the trials along those lines
if such action was satisfactory to the
Department of Justice. On Friday of
last week, when the situation was ex
plained to the Department of Justice, a
telegram was sent to Mr. Heney request
ing him to turn over to Mr. Bristol all
cases which did not command his per
sonal attention, and on the same day Mr.
Heney replied that he would write Mr.
Bristol the following day (Saturday)
sending him practically all the records
In his possession, holding only three or
four cases which he himself wanted to
try In person at some future time, and it
Is understood that these reserved cases
Include those in which Blnger Hermann
Is a defendant.
Heney Coming to Portland.
It was assumed from Mr. Heney's
telegram that the records had been
sent to Mr. Bristol a week ago, but,
when word was received here that Mr.
Bristol had not received them. Inquiry
was made of Mr. Heney by wire and to
day he replied that he Is arranging to
separate the cases between Mr. Bristol
and himself and that he Is going to
Portland tomorrow to see Mr. Bristol
and complete arrangements for the
trials. He will make a flying trip and
remain in Portland only long enough to
go over the various cases with Mr.
Only Policy Is Push Trials.
The Acting Attorney-General and Mr.
Balllnger both deny that the trials
have been delayed pending any deter
mination In Washington as to the
"pttllcy" to be pursued.' .The only
policy of the Intertor Department has
been to have the trials expedited and to
that end Mr. Bristol was assured some
time ago that whenever he signified
a desire to have the assistance of Mr.
Neuhausen or other Interior Depart
ment representatives in Oregon In con
. William Is Somewhat of a Postponer
nection with the land trials, the offi
cials would be placed Instantly at his
disposal and the officials themselves
have been Instructed in the premises.
Both the Interior Department and
the Department of Justice now expect
that the prosecutions will be, pressed
vigorously and hope to- see the docket
cleared of 'all land fraud cases at the
present term of court.
GOOD ' NEWS TO MR. BRISTOL
Glad Heney Is Coming and He Can
Get to AVork.
Mr. Bristol was much gratified last
night to learn the contents of the fore
going dispatch. He said it shows that
the land-fraud controversy Is working out
satisfactorily and that, as the cases
hitherto have not been placed in bis hands
to dispose of, he is not responsible for
delay of the trials. Mr. Heney alms
evidently to be In Portland Tuesday.
Mr. Bristol has explained the delay In
the trials as dwe to hla not having been

put In possession of the evidence for
prosecution and also to lack of funds
for defraying the cost of employing as
sistants and gathering further evidence.
Now that Heney will turn over the cases
to him, and the Department of Justice
Is ready to authorize employment of
necessary assistants and expenditure of
required funds, as Indicated in the fore
going dispatch, Mr. Bristol says the
trials can proceed and be pushed through
to the snd. .
The cost of prosecuting the 30 odd
cases Mr. Bristol estimates at between
1100,000 and tluO.OOO. These expenditures,
he says, will evidently be made direct
from Washington, since the law permits
the local funds In the hands of United
States Marshal Reed to be used only for
paying fees of jurors and witnesses. The
sum of about $20,000 now held by Mr.
Reed, Mr. Bristol says, will be enough
to start the prosecutions going.
The tangle in, the delayed trials seems,
therefore. In a fair way to be soon un
raveled. It has been assumed In Wash
ington that the cases were In the hands
of Mr. Bristol, while as a matter of fact
they have been In the hands of Mr.
Heney In San Francisco. Hence officials
In Washington could not understand why
Mr. Bristol did not proceed with the
prosecutions. And as for funds to pay
expenses of the trials, there has been
money available since July 1, when new
appropriations came Into ' force, within
the limitations already . mentioned, but
before that time there were none. The
Federal grand jury last May was
adjourned on account of lack of money to
continue Its work. That was before the
grand jury- reached land-fraud matters.
Had it continued its Investigations, It
would probably have returned more In
dictments. Mr. Heney is known to be desirous of
reserving to himself the cases against
Binger Hermann and John H. Hall, for
the supposed reasons that they are the
"biggest game" and that- he thinks he
can convict. But the reason for his long
delay and retention of the cases is not
understood. Just why he should npt have
given them over to Mr. Bristol long ago
has not been explained. Various motives
have been, ascribed in gossiping circles,
such as that he- doubts conviction is
probable, and is willing to let the cases
lapse, and that he wants the strongest
of the prosecutions, which he himself will
retain, tried before the weaker ones, and
therefore does not want any of them
tried until he is ready.
Whatever the reason, it has put Mr.
Bristol In a hard situation, where he has
been exposed to criticisms from the pub
lic and from officials In Washington, and
from his enemies, who seek his removal
all of these laying on him the blame for
failure to bring on the trials.

LOS ANGELES. Cal., Sept. 7.-(Spe
clal.) One more wife than tie admits has
punctured his career to the credit of J
Whyte Evans, and one more alleged
blackmailing letter from the facile pen
of Dr. J. S. Owens than has hitherto
appeared were some of the revelations
today In the celebrated case involving tne
Impassive doctor and the pyrotechnic pro

past Mrs. Minna Hance Hvans, his pres
ent conjugal mate, and still more re
motely to' a time antedating the exist
ence as his wife of Mrs. Gertie Dewitt
Evans, there was still another, his first
California helpmate. Evans married her
in San Francisco. They moved to Tulare,
where he started a business college. The
couple has a child. His wife left him
and went to her mother in San Francisco.
He followed her, they quarreled, his
mother-in-law advanced into the argu
ment, and for what resulted Evans was
arrested for disturbing the peace.
This infelicity gave his wife's mother
the opportunity to proclaim that he had
served time in the penitentiary and the
Btory was published at that time.
Second Wife Exposed Record.
The first Mrs. Evans of the three known
to have existed got a divorce in San
Francisco. Evans had returned to Tu
lare and soon thereafter eloped with and
married Miss Dewitt, daughter of a well
known family of Tulare.- Evans lived with
this wife several years and they had a
girl. Shortly before fhe secured a di
vorce Mrs. Dewitt Evans Is said to have
attempted suicide. At least she shot her
self in fhe left shoulder, and Dr. Owens,
who was one of her witnesses in the di
vorce trial, was one authority for the
suicide story. He was this Mrs. Evans'
physician and her confidant to such a
degree that. In a fit of pique at her hus
band, she exposed the stain upon ills
Another Man Alleges Blackmail.
So much for Evans' wives. Dr. Owens,
who appeared before Justice Selph this
morning to have the date set for his
preliminary examination on a charge of
attempted extortion, is the author of an
other letter which Deputy District Attor
ney Paul J. McCormick, who has charge
of the prosecution, construes as a black
mailing epistle. This letter, was written
three years ago from Chicago, the man
addressed being J. V. McNeil, of 3577
Dayton avenue, this city. While the con
tents of this letter are not to be made
public for the present. Mr. McCormick
says It represents an effort on Owens'
part to obtain money by holding a threat
over Mr-. McNeil's head. Mr. McNeil
says he so considered the letter himself.
Meanwhile, however, the doctor
smiles and says he has a wealth of in
teresting correspondence from both
Mr. and Mrs. Evans which bears out
his fiduciary claims against the former
and their free concurrence In all his
demands. They addressed him on all
occasions, he says, wllh expressions of
friendship and even affection, both
averring their sorrow over Evans' In
ability to settle as per requests.
Made Money In Pan-American Road
While Evans will not confirm the
surmise, there i" reason to believe
that the two men against whom he
said he would bring suit for $25,000 on
account of some Mexican deal, are his
associates In the Pan-American Rail
way. Evans was the railroad's first

president. This was the first and
most conspicuous of his frequent
presidencies. According to Dr. Owens,
Evans had ' rediscovered the Pan
American, into which the Barings put
millions of dollars. Evans lost all his
money In his effort to' make the road
an instrument for profit and came back
to Los Angeles "broke." He returned
later, however, so Owens says, with
$500 of the doctor's money. Interested
new associates, and did so well that
later he sold out for $100,000 cash.
When he arrived in Los Angeles, Evans
had $92,000. He "said, however, that
his former associates owed him
$150,000. and It is for that sum and
these men he intends to sue, according
to Dr. Owens.
Money Which Won Mrs. Owens.
According to the doctor also, it was this
handsome sum of money which enabled
Evans to win his wife. In this tale of
multitudinous divorces that of the Owens
is not the least outre. Upon his return
from Mexico Evans not only brought
Mrs. Owens some handsome Jewels, so
says Owens, but renewed his intimacy
with the couple as an becups.: of their
house. Before going to Mexico and in
hla less prosperous days he had lived
with them. Somewhat later he took his
European trip and brought back dia
monds for Mrs. Owens. All, of this, the
aoetor says, he thought was discreet and
merely a mark of friendship, hut now
he thinks he was not well Informed.
His reason for 'being doubtful was that

Beautiful Mrs. Batanyi's Act of
GAINS MILLIONS THEREBY
Still Loving rrofewlonal Whip, fot
Whom She Was Cast Out of So-
clety, She Leaves Him to
NEWPORT, R. I.. Sept. 7. (Special.)
It has been learned that Mrs. Aurel
Batanyi has parted from her husband,
the former professional whip. Mrs.
Batanyi, who was once Mrs. Burke
Roche, wife of the son of an Irish peer
and before that Miss Frances Work,
acknowledged In her girlhood to be
the most beautiful debutante of New
York society. Is a physical reck. Suf
fering and worry have left hardly a.
trace of her former beauty.
Tomorrow night she will go to New
York to meet her aged father, Frank
Work, the multi-millionaire. It is the
father who has brought about the sep
aration of the Batanyls. Although
deeply In love with her husband, she
has consented to make a living sacri
fice of herself for the sake of her two
sons, Maurice and Francis.
Renounce Love for Riches.
At Frank Work's Madison-avenue
home on Monday lawyers representing
the aged millionaire will draw up a
pledge, which Mrs. Batanyi will sign,
and In which she solemnly promise
never again to live with the horseman
whose name-she took two years ago.
She had ban warnwl weeks ago what
the penalty" of her refusal would he
disinheritance for her and her two sons
under the terms of Frank Work's will.
Thus does the old Invalid, now stretched
upon his dying bed, force a daughter's
obedience to his desire by the threat of
beggaring her children.
Driven From Home and Society.
Ever since the announcement a yea
ago of her secret marriage to Batanyi,
the pair! manager of her father's estate,
the woman has had a sorrowful time ol
it. Newport society for the most part
refused to receive her husband and the
woman who had Tnce reigned without a
rival over the smartest set in America
found herself powerless to take Batanyi
Into the more exclusive homes.
But what gave her greater concern was
the attitude of her father. From the
time he first learned of her marriage to
Batanyi, Frank Work refused to see her.
Her own daughter, formerly Miss Cynthia
Burke-Roche, sided with the grandfather
against the mother. So did Mrs. Bat
anyi's only sister, Mrs. Teter Cooper-.
Hewitt, of New York. But her two sons,
Maurice and Francis, stood steadfastly
by their mother: This brought the young
men within the ban of their determined
old grandfather's displeasure.
