STUBBORN ON CROSS QUIZ
Admits, However, That Certain
Things Said by Glavis Were
"Washington, May 6. The cross ex
amination of Ballinger by Attorney
Brandels for the "prosecution" today
caused the secretary to appeal to the
committee for protection against the
attorney's "insolence." The majority
of- the committee was -with the wit
ness. Brandels' efforts were directed
toward forcing the witness to admit
certain of his statements were' incor
rect, but the committee refused to
compel him to do so. .
Concludes Direct Teattmoay.
' : Washington, May 6. Ballinger con
cluded his direct testimony in the Bal-linger-Pinchot
hearing yesterday after
noon, with this statement:' '
"I defy any one to put his finger on
anything that I have' done while in
the public service which was not in
line with my duty and in accordance
with my trust." '
"Official Pie Distributor."
Attorney Brandels, . counsel for L.
- R. Glavis, and one of Ballinger's chief
accusers; took up the cross-examination.
On the first question Brandels
had to appeal to the committee to "re
quest" Ballinger to answer. The ques
tion involved Postmaster General
Hitchcock, as the "official pie distribu
tor" of the administration. Brandels
wanted to know why Ballinger had
wired Chief of the Field Division
Schwartz to -wait until he had talked
with Hitchcock before he made the ap
pointment of 10 special agents to be
employed in the Alaskan coal cases
investigation. Ballinger declined to
answer the same, saying that the mat
ter was not political.
The committee by a vote of 6 to 5
voted that Ballinger need not
answer. ' : -. - '
Ballinger admitted that the Inter
view in which he declared subsequent
to the publication of the Glavis charges
"that he proposed to kill some snakes"
was held. ' ' . - : .
He also said that he had reference
to Glavis, as he had made up his mind
"that he ought to be killed as a snake.
He said that Glavis "loafed on his job"
in conducting the Alaskan cases.
1'iluiowa Letter Read.
The hitherto unknown letter of the
president to Ballinger, under the date
of Sept 13, 1909, was read. In it the
president expressed a desire to- retain
Pinchot, but said that his weakness
lay in "his inability to credit high and
honorable motives to those who dif
fered with him as to his method of
doing things." The president request
ed Ballinger to remain silent under
criticism. The secretary said that this
wasithe reason that he had not answer
ed the charges.
