Pardee attacked Richard A. Bollinger,
secretary of the interior, with a fierce
ncss only seconded by that of former
Senator George, -tumor of Washington,
who toyk up the cudgels in defense of
Ballinger entered the auditorium this
afternoon surrounded by A reception
committee, and when bo arose to speak,
ho was choered for several minutes.
Tho secretary after a few intro
ductory remarks, lead from a paper his
ideas on reclamation and the public
domain. One point he mado plain, and
that was his jdea that what aad been
done by Clio secretary of tu-j interior
was under law.
Ballinger then sat down and would
not be disturbed by questions.
There is a little note following each
notation on the published program in
viting delegates. to ask questions and
enter into discussion with tl- speakers.
Ballinger was not aware of this. Up
rose Judge John Fairweather of Cali
fornia, with a question. The secretary
answered it and then left the platform.
The next speaker was A. C. Campbell,
who discussed the legal aspects of prop
erty rights in irrigation.
Former Governor Pardee he-i took
the platform to deliver hi" .-rl'Lo-'s upon
the subject assigned to him. lut he
had no u" for his iuaiiUM-i;)t. lie
ope r.j by sa;, tug he wsis for Rioseveit
:k-u the R"i sevqlt policies. v
" i'ooM" e't uns the president who
did things Iirat," said he, "a rut talked
about them afterwaids. And that's t'te
l;!-ia of n.cn wc would lilc to - e in
piJi!:.- iitJTce now."
Pardee told of the nctivitioB of for
mer Secretary Garfield, who, under in
structions from President Roosevelt,
withdrew from public entry many
tracts of land under the belief that
these lands should be held for the peo
ple. Now, he said, Secretary Ballinger
lias again put up for entry these lands
and each tract his in its boundaries a
water power site.
'I do not oppose priato enterprise
in the development of these sites,"
said Pardee, "but I do oppose giving
away immense, rights to private, cor
porations, which, in a few years, will
hold tho same political control cer
cities and states that railways now hold
as a result of the magtiificonr (Jits
mndo them when they were asking for
help to construct. We know tho cor
ruption that has resulted from railway
control. Shall wo now hand to a new
form of corporate power our institu
tions!" "Whon," pleaded the speaker, "nre
we over going to have a chance for the
common, hard working citizen ! Secre
tay Ballinger has said that irrigation
is not a proposition for a poor man. 1
take issue with him nnd say it is par
ticularly a poor man's proposition, anil
if there is any one trying to make it
not so, let's find out about it."
Senator Turner during these remarks
had left his place in tho rear of the
hall and was sitting behind the speak
er. As Pardee concluded, Turner gain
ed the floor nnd replied.
"1 think," said ho, "that the re
marks of Governor Pardeo at a time
following tho secretary of the interior
are. to say tho lcasv, in bad taste. Mr.
Ballinger has done in his official ca
'pacity only what any man would do
under his oath of office he has obeyed
the law. No man has a. right to act
first nnd read the law afterwards, ami
even Governor Pardee never did such
a thing in his official capaciay."
Again Pardeo was on bis feet.
"1 want to say," ho exclaimed,
"that I never said such a thing. 1
said that wo want a mnn who acts first
and talks afterwards. L want to say
further, (looking at Mr. Turner), that
I am hero representing none but my
self, and T am not an attorney nor the
son of one. If that be treason, make
tho best of it."
Ballinger had loft tho ball at this
time, but Gilford Pinchot, who inci
