Prepared answer to McCumbers charge
that I am responsible for publication
of "The Looters of Alaska." Frank D Arthur
from New York is here - he is trying to get
copies of the letters written by the Pennsylvania
copper gang in opposition to me, for use
in his litigation against Helm, et. al.
Ex. Gov. John G. Brady in town!
More trouble for me. Nothing today
in Senate. Dinner with Harry
White, of Seattle, who will try to do
something with Brady. Arthur also
worked on it some & will do more from
New York - he says that Blackburn
is evidently working with us now.
Darrell came over & spent part
of the day with me - we called on the
Clarks & Miss Dorothy. It seems
now that Welliver, the Times man, to
whom I talked the other day went
& told McCumber about it & gave
the most damnable turn to it - told
McCumber that I wanted him to attack
McC the liar! That was now what I
wanted - but only to stop attacks on me!!
