Makes Statement Which Is Likely to
Stir Up Ballinger-Pinchot Dispute.
Washington, Dec. 15. Practically
challenging congress to take up the re
port of the special committee which
investigated Secretary of the Interior
IJalllnger and declaring that congress
cannot avoid passing on the reports of
tho committee, Glfford Plnchot, the
deposed chief forester, has come out
In a statement likely to nttract much
attention at the capltol and stir up the
embers of the Ralllnger-Pinchot fire.
Mr. Plnchot says:
"Of course the report of the majority
In favor of Mr. Halltnger has excited
little interest and, less surprise. From
the beginning It was known what the
tenor of the report would be. The
stand pal majority did only what was
expected of them. It takes vastly
more moral courage to assume tho re
Hponslbllily of deciding against a man
In high place and with powerful
friends than to decide for him. The
whitewash of Senator I.orimer is a

attempt to prove that the grandmother

was Insane and died Insane, "that her
father Is Insane, that her sister Lucy
and her sister Viola are Insane and
that her great-grandmother on her fa

T Is iv lltlli' dlllleult for the mind
not given to contemplation of the
problem of abolishing war, which
has so much Interested Andrew
Carnegie, to see jnst how $500,000 a
year Income from his 510,000,000 peace
i endowment fund can bo speiH ndvnh
! tngoously in the line of work laid out.
i The Impression, la that tho fund Is
bound to grow rapidly niirt steadily,
( and there is not much disposition in
congress' to provide a charter for such
t n fund when there arc no more llm
, Itatlons upon Its use than In Mr. Car
negie's deed of gift.
No definite plans for the employ
ment of the resources of the founda
tion have been formulated by Mr. Car
negie, and as far, as the trustees are
concerned few of thetn bnVo thought
of the matter sulllclontly to bo pre
pared with any specific Ideas.
Tames llrown Scott, former solicitor
of the state department, the secretary
of the foundation who has devoted a
great deal of time and study to ways
and metlmdo of promoting Internation
al peace, thinks that the work of the
foundation would be first to make n
scientific study 4in the effort to find
the method of eradicating the cause of
war." He also states that there Is nc
Intention oh the part of the trustees of
"making a wordy war on war." They
want to do something practical
The only one of the trustees who
hns In mind a definite line of proce
dure Is Oscut S. Straus, ex-secretary of
commerce and labor and ambassador to
Turkey. Mr. Straus has also devoted
much time to the problem of secur

"There Is one decidedly practical
Hue of actlpn which may be entered
upon at once," said Mr. Straus. "It
Is to make a scientific study of the
cost of war. This has never been
done, at least In such fashion that
the result was authoritative and prac
tical. I mean a study that will show
the economic effect of war ,not only
upon the countries engaged In any
particular war, but upon other coun
tries as well. It will be found, I am
sure, that war. always costs very much
more than It product.1 by way of bene
lit, even to the victorious nation,
'Tor instance, we are spending to
day two-thirds, of our revenue on ac
count pf wars past or to come. Our
expenditures for this account alone
have been und aro enormous, and
where Is the return? AVhat Is the
value of that return If there Is anyV
These are questions that may be de
termined now in practical fashion for
the tlrst time. A general balance sheet
with war may be shown to the world.
The effect of It Is certain to be pro
found, for It can be demonstrated to
overy nntlou that no matter what the
Object for which war Is made It might
be accomplished in some better and
more economic way."
Calling, attention to the last great
war, that between Jnpan and Russia,
Mr. Straus said that another practical
matter to which the Carnegie founda
tion might turn its attention would bo
tho study of such problems as that
conflict involved. In that case the
great economic problem of thd press
of population In Japan was the under,
lying cause flf greatest potency In the
attitude taken by Japan. The Carne
gie foundation, In the opinion of Mr.
Straus, may well devote its attention
to the study and consideration of ways
and means of avoiding the resort to
war for tVe settlement of such prob
lems, In laying tlio proposition beforo'tho
