DAY LIVELY WITH SENSATIONS Witness Arrases Attorney Brandel of Deliberate tntrnth Kerhy Contradict Secretary Dalllngrr, 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 untruth. 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?" "No." "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 anybody. 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 had. Th committee declined Mt. Brandels' re quest to have mad a part of the record Uiu stattmeiil Issued from the White House, denj'.ng ther was any foundation for tke Ke.uy statement. Suiatuf Root charged that Mr. Ilrandeis whoU' Vnc of 1 Inquiry was a covert iittonint to drug tin; president Into tho investigation, to which Mr. Brandels replied that It nia material to the Investigation as tending to tdiow the president- letter exonerating Ballinger was pel pared In such haste that It whs not Judicial In Its nature, but was extremely partisan." Drandrla Fires Buck. 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 to. "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 tending Its ultimute productions." 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 significantly. 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.
