FROM MR. HERMANN.
Investigation into the Land
Frauds, He Says.
Roseburg, Or. Oct. 23 (To the
editor.) In the Oregonian of yester
day I notice a communication from
your Washington City correspondent
in which there is a false insinuation
that I favored selections by Hyde, of
San Francisco, while I was Commis
sioner, and that I delayed action in
such cases, whereas the truth is that
it was I who suspended all such selec
tions, as the record shows, immedi
ately on receipt of information that a
wrong was being perpetrated on the
Government, and further, that I
placed in the hands of the head of the
department all the confidential infor
mation I had received, and this now
forms the basis for subsequent in
quiry. Previous to this I directed
the attention of a trusted special
agent to the charges made and insti
tuted a prompt investigation through
Your correspondent has, at differ
ent times heretofore, and as 1 think
maliciously, indulged in various cov
ert attacks, in his endeavor to create
an impression that I indirectly aided
in conveying information to interest
ed parties of actual or contemplated
withdrawals for reserve purposes.
Any such suggestion is as false as it
is apparently vindictive. My con
stant aim while Commissioner was to
enforce the land laws clean-handed,
impartially and vigorously, and to
this end the office records bear evi
dence in numerous circulars and in
structions issued by me to the local
land officers and special agents, urg
ing them to constant vigilance in up
holding the laws and regulations.
Wherever fraud was discovered, the
penalty was enforced, entries cancelled
ana the lands unlawfully secured re
stored to the public domain. As to
the scandalous abuse of the lieu land
law, I was the first, in various reports
made by me to the Department, to
urge a repeal or modification of that
law, which permits such an unfair ad
vantage upon the Government. It
does not seem consistent that while a
hue and cry is made against one who
can only enter 160 acres at $2.50
per acre of timber lands, and who is
under the suspicion of the Govern
ment, and pursued by special agents,
no objection is urged, and no cry of
fraud and speculation uttered against
the rich syndicate standing by and
only waiting to appropriate thousands
of acres by so-called scrip, based on
little value to the original holder, as
soon as the timber entries of some
poor entrymen are cancelled. The
first bill passed by the regular session
of Congress should be one which
would deal the death blow to the law
which permits such unjust conditions.
You will excuse the necessity which
has prompted me to resent these fre
quent reflections from your corre
spondent. Respectfully yours,
hushed up or he may go to trial on
the charge and be cleared by a jury,
but one thing is certain and that is,
if the act had been done by a man of
no standing in society or a common
jack leg lawyer, the lawyer would
have been behind the bars of a prison
or out on heavy bonds before this
time. The whole matter appears to
be one of duplicity and fraudulent
intent and should be probed to the
bottom. Mr. Moody says that the
matter is prosecuted for political pur
poses by his enemies, but as Mr.
Moody is a dead political duck, there
could be no sense in getting up such
a scheme to blacken his personal
character, the same as he intimates.
The whole evidence goes to show that
after Moody obtained possession of
the letter from the Controller of the
Currency, addressed to Mrs. Conroy,
that he attempted to skin her out of
about ninety dollars by what the
Plaindealer believes to be the worst
kind of a confidence game, after the
etter had been illegally taken from
The Dalles postoffice. If Moody is
guilty there should be made of 'him
an example that will sink into the
hearts of bilks.
We do not know Mr. Moody, nor
heard but little of him until the matter
came up in the Federal court and
then we read of his noble character
and the great service he had done
Oregon, or rather, the honor Oregon
had bestowed upon him; but in face
of all the evidence and his own expla
nation, if he had been a poor, ob
scure, ignorant man, he would un
doubtedly be sentenced to the peni
tentiary: and if there is no better
evidence to establish his innocence,
or rather, set aside or exonerate him
from the guilty act, as it appears to
this writer, we hope that the jury
will make an example of him. The
good of Oregon demands that hon
ored and talented boodlers be pun
ished just as quickly and as surely as
the lowest form of obtaining money un
der false pretenses. With this paper
all men are alike before tbe law, and
if there is mercy to be shown in the
enforcement of law, order and good
government, it should be to the ig
norant and poor poor because they
are ignorant and ignorant because
ot poverty. At the same time igno
rance and poverty is no excuse for
crime, much less should social posi
tion, honors bestowed, or the brilliant
previous record be used as a cloak to
excuse crime. Perhaps this was
Moody's first offense. If it is, before
this he has suffered the agony of hell.
If it has simply been the public ex
posure of a dual life and action, the
good of the state demands that such
exposure be made and the guilty pun
ished. In all our newspaper work
we have never seen such a spirit of
fairness and a lothness to believe or
credit the reports, by the press of any
state, as has been shown by the press
of Oregon. For several days, both
republican and democratic papers
have handled the matter in a very
gingerly manner, for the editors seem
to be appalled at the charge. All we
have to say is, if Oregon, years
ago, had put a lot of her head
men in the penitentiary, for boodlirig,
and land stealing, and jobbery of al
lands, there would be less smoke in
the compost pile today. If Moody
is guilty, let no false sentiment pre
vent him playing checquers with his
nose against the Federal prison bars
and mete out justice to high and low
alike; and we think Judge Bellinger
is just the kind of a judge to see jus
tice done in his court.
attention to the fact that she would
bo buncoed out of over ninety dollars
by Mr. Moody, on the deal. Moody
is either a criminal, a simplo minded
man or a fool lunatic, and as such tho
Republican party of Oregon should
protest the man's actions and for
ever draw tho mantlo of charity over
fallen, false god.
Oregon Delegation a Unit for Booth
and Bridges at Roseburg.
Washington, Oct. 28. The four mem
bers of tho Oregon delegation havo
oinod in recommending tho reappoint
ment of Joseph T. Bridges and James
H. Booth, as Register and Receiver, re
spectively, of the Rosoburg Land Office.
Both these men were originally appoint
ed Juno 2, 189S, and have eerved nearly
year and a half beyond their term.
Before action is taken on tho delega
tion's recommendation, Secretary Hitch
cock will thoroughly examine tho rec
ords of Bridges and Booth, but the in
proseion prevails that both men have
proven satisfactory in their first terms.
It is hardly probable that appointments
will be made until after Congress con-
enes, so that the nominations may go
direct to the Senate.
Opposition to rtenppolnttucnt no
Receiver Dccanse He Is
In Mill Firm.
Washington, Oct. 20. Tho first thing
the Interior Department will take up
when it conies to examine into the rec
ords of James II. Booth, Receiver of tho
toseburg Land Office, who has been
recommended by tho delegation for re
appointment, is a charge that has been
on file some time alleging that Booth is
connected with the Booth-Kelly Lumber
Company, which has been operating
largely in Southern Oregon and North
ern California, and that Booth, in view
of this connection with the companv,
hould no longer be a land officer at
Roseburg. Before he takes action in
tho case Secretary Hitchcock will thor
oughly investigate the matter and deter
mine whether Booth's connection with
the lumber business disqualifies him to
hold public office.
If the Oregon delegation wants to
see Lane, Douglas, Coos, Curry, Jack
son and Josephine counties go over
to the Democratic ranks all that the
Our impression of the part Mr.
Hermann has played in our Washing
ton dispatches hardly coincides with
his. The record, on the other hand,
seems to us to have coincided with
his own narrative of the facta. This
was notably the case in connection
with the account of the Blue Moun
tain reserve The Oregonian.
The facts of the case are: Binger
Hermann opposed Secretary Hitch
cock's lieu land policy a policy en
tirely favoring monopolies and com
bines and enforced to crush out small
men. He went so far as to antago
nize Hitchcock's written report on
land matters and now that Granny
Hitchcock has had her ear to the
ground wire the old lady is attempt
ing to cut Binger Hermann's hair and
swear that Hermann's land policy was
her own and that Binger has stolen
her methods. Chicanery thy name is
THE MOODY CASE.
As stated in our last issue, Ex
Congressman Malcolm A. Moody of
The Dalles has been indicted by the
Federal Grand Jury on four counts
for taking a letter from The Dalles
Postoffice unlawfully and in opening
the letter and destroying or withhold
ing the contents. All the witnesses
for the prosecution were before the
grand jury, and also the defendant,
who made a statement in his own be
half. The whole matter may be
The whole summing up of the busi
ness, acccording to Jloodys own
statement, is: by obtaining posses
sion of the letter which he did not
re-direct to Mrs. Conroy nor deliver
to her, he was enabled to keep from
her a true statement of the amount
due her on the certificate sent in the
letter by the U. S. Controller of Cur
rency, and for his services in obtain
ing tha letter fraudulently and making
payment, he attempted to bunco her
out of over ninety dollars. If this,
his own statement, is true, and is
not a trap to lead the widow woman
into error, so that he can escape on
technicalities of law, we hope that
this supposed high republican mogu
will suffer the penalty of his crime, if
crime there be, for the republican
party i3 the party of intelligence and
honesty and Bhould stand for all that
is noble and good, and to keep up the
record it is necessary, whenever one
of its favored sons steps aside into
scalawag paths, that the party be
purged of such base fellows; and the
party having the moral courage to de
nounce crime committed by any of its
own members, is stronger before the
people than though the crime was
committed by its political opponents.
The republican party of Oregon needs
only men of pure lives and business
methods to advocate tho ennobling
principles of pure republicanism, and
to attempt to uphold Moody, to wink
at the offense, to condone the viola
tion of law or to say that his honor
or integrity is so high that he simply
acted the part of an ignorant fool in
doing what he did can never set aside
this fact; that his little game had
been successful up to the time that
