Saw Senator Piles & told him what
Sulzer said about the President
& Piles will also go to the President
& urge him to influence McCumber.
Instead of fighting me McCumber
ought to be aiding me, because
in Oct. 1901, at Nome I stood
between him & ruin. The Grand
Jury, at the instigation of Fink,
intended to indict Noyes, Mc
Kenzie, McCumber & Hansborough
- but McGinn & I stopped it.
- the U.S. Ct. Ct. of App. was then hearing
the charges against Noyes, et. al.
for contempt, - the indictment
against them at Nome was to have
been for "conspiracy" and the
Ct. of Appeals in the Contempt
cases said that there was a
conspiracy. But for my active
efforts the indictments would
have been returned & McCumber
ruined - and this is the thanks
I am getting!
