dollars to drainage of the Red river valley.
- all this happened this afternoon.
Lacy also told me that Walliver, of the Times
who threatened to write me up, is from Iowa
- he is a Cummins striker - & against
Lacy - therefore for McCumber & Nelson.
11. p.m. Mrs. Walter E. Clark just called
my telephone to tell me that they had some
news at the office - N.Y. Sun - about my case.
Called up the office & they say that the Senate
steering Com. today put my case on for one
of the matters to be voted on & settled before
the session closes!!
Darrell came over this afternoon &
had dinner with me & Cushman - we
went to the theatre. McCumber is
now charging me with responsibility
for publication of "Looting of Alaska."
Piles is "cock sure" as is Sulzer, but
Foraker says that I cant get a vote
this session. Foraker is a "quitter".
A flying machine came into town
from Luna Park today, circled around
Wash. Monument, White House & Capitol
& thence back - no breeze - conditions ideal
- machine so far a plaything - impracticable.
