Witness Arrases Attorney Brandel
of Deliberate tntrnth Kerhy
Contradict Secretary
WASHINGTON. May 18 A day filled with
Interesting episodes reached an exciting
climax In the Balllnger-Plnchot Investiga
tion yesterday when Aseiftanl Attorney
Genrral Oscar Lawler, author of the now
fainoun Lawler memorandum, rose wrath-
fully from the witness neat and accused
Attorney Brandels of uttering a deliberate
Then after he had been rebuked by sev
eral members of the comnilttw, Mr. Lawler
withdrew his remark and apologised to
the committee.
Mr. Lawler was called to tho stand by
the "defense" to explain the circumstances
under which he had prepared for the pres
ident a memorandom containing his opin
ion on the charges that had been filed by
Special Agent Giavls against Secretary
Balllnger. Several hours had been con
sumed In the examination of Frederic K. M.
Kerby, tho stenographer in Mr. Balllnger'a
office, who was discharged yeterday
becaUBC he made public confidential Infor
mation of the department relating to the
Lawler memorandum.
Mr. Kerby was called unexpectedly by
Chairman Nelson soon after the rommlttee
assembled In order that he might give
sworn testimony to his published state
ment, which Mr. Brandels had endeavored
to have printed In the record together wjth
the president's letter of last Sunday.
Kerby Contradicts Chief.
Directly contradicting Secretary Bal
llnger's testimony before the committee,
Kerby said his former superior knew about
the preparation of the memorandum and
that he participated In the conference on
the subject. Furthermore, he said Lawler
had told Private Secretary Carr in his
presence that he had left a copy of the
memorandum with Mr. Ballinger.
Under cross examination by Mr. Bran
dels, Mr. Lawler was referred to various
requests for document and information
bearing on It which the attorney had sent
to Secretary Ballinger through the com
mittee. Mr. Lawler had Informed the secretary
In each Instance that he had supplied all
the matter bearing on the Glavis charges
In "his possession."
"Did you discuss with Mr. Carr the ob
vious purpose of my requests?"
"No sir."
"Did you discuss with Carr how you
could evade my requests?"
"Didn't you know you were evading"
"That statement is an absolute false
hood by you sir," shouted the witness,
jumping from his seat and facing his In
qulBltor with flashing eyes.
Mr. Brandels Instantly appealed to the
committee to reprimand , the witness for
bo addressing counsel,
I.avrler Apologises.
"If my remark has been offensive I with
draw It and apologize to the committee,"
said Mr. Lawler. Mr. Brandels was thereby
placated and resumed his cross examina
tion. Mr. Lawler said he had been asked. by
the president to prepare an opinion and
that lie regarded it as a confidential trust.
He said he had furnished to the commit
tee all the Information he had felt at lib
erty to divulge and did not think he had
any right to Inform the committee that
Such a memorandum existed.
Immediately after his return to Wash
ington from Beverly last . September Mr.
Lawler said he had begun preparation of
his memorandum. The original draft, he
Bald, was completed without consulting
When the draft had ben typewritten by
Kerby and Massey, he added, he had called
In Secretary Ballinger and others one
night to hear it read.
"I wanted to be absolutely correct in
every statement," explained Mr. Lawler.
He said no one made any suggestion, ex
cept for the purpose of verification.
Mr. Lawler said he had burned the origi
nal draft of the memorandum.
"I was confident," he said, "that 'gum
hoe" men had b.een on my trail for months,
and I knew there were no depths of depre
dation to which they would not stoop. I
was afraid some one In the office might be
corrupted as Kerby has been corrupted."
The "Gum Shoe" Men.
Asked who he thought were behind the
"gum-shoe" men, Mr. Lawler declared,
dramatically: "James H. Garfield, Glfford
Plnchot, Norman Hapgood, a man named
Connelly and that man there."
"You mean Mr. Brandels?"
"Yes. He came In later. He's the flower
of that foul flock."
This reference to the champions of con
servation caused an uproar among the spec
tators, most of whom were women, and
there was some hissing.
The witness said he gave two copies of
his memorandum to the president's secre
tary and one to the attorney general, and
had not given one to Secretary Ballinger.
He produced the original, which he said he
had obtained from the White House Satur
day morning.
Confidential letters between Secretary
Ballinger and It. H. Thompson, city engi
neer of Seattle, last summer and spring,
were read by Stenographer Kerby to bear
out his contention that Thomson was not a
fit man to be director of the reclamation
service. He said he had mentioned to Mr.
Brandels at Plnchot's home here last Feb
ruary that Ballinger had Intended to sup
plant Director Newell with Thomson ever
since he became secretary. The letters were
furnished the committee In response to a
request by Mr. Brandels.
Contents of Letters.
The letters related to a trip to Alaska,
which Ballinger had suggested Thomson
should take as an expert In the summer
of 1909, with Generge W. Perkins, of J. p.
Morgan & Co., to make some Investiga
tion with a view to establishing a railroad
for the development of mineral lands, Mr.
Ballinger wrote Thomson, he had recom
mended him to Mr. Perkins and that the
matter should be kept strictly confidential.
It appeared from the correspondence that
Mr. Thomson had first agreed to go to
Alaska, but subsequently had abandoned
the trip, because of his denlre to be pres
ent at the Spokane Irrigation congress.
In the letters between Ballinger and
Thornton reference was made to the re
clamation servica and the reorganisation,
which Mr. Ballinger planned and some
proposition, ahlcU Mr. Ballinger hoped to
be In a position to mak to Thomson by
Sapttxuber lust. Kerby read . a letter re
ceived by Mr. Ballinger from 8. II. Ueddes
of SeaUiM, ur.di-r date of April 11 last. In
which Geddes wrote he hod told Thomson
he would like to see him in Washington
as head of I no reclamation service, but
had assured the secretary that he had not
intimated some conversation the two had

Attorney Brand Ma said that. Inasmuch, as
Senator Root had made a personal attack
upon him, he thought he should be nllowrd
to reply. Mr. Root said he hnd no ob
jection, but he did not remain In the loom
to luar the lawyer's explanation.
Mr. Brandels said the president's letter
of September 13, ex jneratlng Ballinger
and dismissing Ulavls had been prepared
under such circumstances as to lead to
the suspicion that it "was not Judicial In
Its naturo, but was extremely partisan."
He said that instead of producing tho
Lawler memorandum, when he applied for
It, a process of evasion had been resorted
"It Is clear to my mind," tald Mr. Bran
dels, "that the Lawler memorandum was
material anil that it his become doubly
material in view of the circumstances at

Kerby had tod the committee he had not
been accustomed to keep his stenographic
note books and hud so told Mr. Carr, but
had mentioned to Carr that Massey had
kept all of his. Ho said subsequently to
that Massey had destroyed his nolo books.
Mr. Brandels asked Kerby to explain
why. The witness said he and Massey had
been discussing the possibility of their be
ing cslled before tho Inquiry. Somithlng
was Fald about Massey's having kept all
his notes, and Carr turned to Massey, smil
ingly, and said, "according to Kerby, 'Mns
Bey, you hud better lose those note bookB.'
Massey lost the note books," udded Kerby
Mr. Lawler was called to the stand and
denied that tho memorandum 1iad been
prepared with the assistance of anybody.
Ho said that ho had merely read it over to
Secretary Ballinger and others In his office
after It had been finished in order to make
certain that every statement contained
therein was absolutely correct.
Attorney Vertrees Indicated-that he might
want to question Mr. Lawler further when
the committee meets on Thursday, as the
witness Btill was under examination when
the hearing adjourned.

United States marshal here today 011 an
Indictment returned by a federal grand
Jury at Omaha last December, charging
him with promoting a fake prize fight.
Thielman is alleged to have been a mem
ber of the Mabray gang of fake prize fight
and wrestling bout promoters, several of
whom were recently tried at Council Bluffs,
and sentenced to Imprisonment In the fed
eral penitentiary at Leavenworth,
When the Indictment was returned against
Thielman last winter, he fled to British
Columbia and did not return to Seattle
until a few days ago. Several years ago

JOPLIN, Mo., May 18.-Lute West, alias
Lute Bodlen, Tom Rogers and "10," ar
rested In Webb City last week on an in
dictment returned by the Mabray federal
grand Jury at Council Bluffs, la., was iden
tified by W. D. Bedford, a farmer of
Bolckow, Mo., as one of the men who
robbed him of 150,000 on a rake horse race.
He was held In default of 3,000 bond and
will be taken to Council Bluffs Thursday.
Thielman Is a member of a prominent
and wealthy German family of St. Cloud,
Minn., one of the most highly respected
families of that old German city. When
he was first arrested In Omaha a news
paper man who knew him in St. Cloud had
a talk with him at the jail and Thielman
said that If he ever gut out of this trouble
he would stay clear of such associates
again; that he did not realize the criminal
side of the deal when he went Into It. He
was over-zealous that his family not learn
of his disgrace.
Thielman is a brother of Jaklo Thielman,
the old base ball pitcher, with Cleveland
and then some minor league teams and
Darbey Thielman, himself, was a profes
sional ball player, being a member of the
Spokane and Seattle teams In the North
western Pacific league, but he was hard to
manage and when he got Into this trouble
was blacklisted for Jumping a contract.
Thielman was one of the first men In
the Miking games at Council Bluffs. He
himself told the police after they found
they were unable to hold him In Omaha
and the Council Bluffs officers did not
try to get him, how much fun they had in
"pulling off" the fake prize fight where
one fellow with his mouth full of port
wine pretended to bleed to death when the
other one hit him on the Jaw. That deaf
was hatched In Louisville, Ky., and en
acted In Council Bluffs, so that the
Omaha police had no claim on him.
