Stenographer Kirby Takes Stand

Why He Gave Out Press Interview
Charges That Ballinger Testi I
lied Falsely in Regard tc t I
Lawler DraI Undergoe a I
Severe Grilling
Washington May 17 Frederick
Kerby former stenographer in Sec
retary Dalllngers office who made
affidavit revealing the character o f
the Lawler memorandum took the
stand this morning before the Bal
llngcrPlncbot Investigating com
mlttee Attorney Vertreea asked I
Kerby if he was a confidential clerk
and why he felt called upon to give
out confidential information Kerby
replied that he considered his post
bon one confidential to the govern
ment and not to Secretary Ballinger
Kerby said he was friendly with for
mer Secretary Garfield who knew
he had been given tbe preparations
of the Lawler draft from another
source He said Garfield told him
too many had already been sacri
ficed He told of a meeting held at
Plncbota home
Vertreea insistently urged Kertoy
to admit a selfish motive In giving
out ills htatement Kenby denied
this and was allowed to tell the
story In his own way He eald he
first met iRobert Wiloon of the
Cleveland Press Sunday May 8 af
ter which he talked the matter over
with his wife He thought it best
not to give the story to the press
If he had a chance to take the wit
ness stand Ho said the following
Tuesday II N NIckey editorinchief
of ScrlppsMoRao newspaper and TV
B Colver general manager of the
Newspaper Enterprise aaaoctklon of
Cleveland talked to him and Mrs
Kerby All agreed that his decision
was right
I remember Colver praised my
attiUide He said Its all right I
came down here to find a story and
I found a man Im satisfied
The next day said > Kenby I
pad Dallingera testimony carefully
and realized he tad denied all sped
fic knowledge of the Lawler draft
and stated other facts that were un
true This I thought made It im
possible for Attorney Brandels to
call me In rebuttal as according to
the record there was nothing to Te
but That day Brandels said he felt
he was practBcaliy cut off from get
ting before the committee the in
formation I had I knew also from
correspondence in our office that the
attorney general and Interior depart
ment had not responded with copies
of memorandum despite firandoia
repeated calls for them Therefore
thought It my duty to make the
faclJ public
Ballinger bad stated previously in
the letter to the committee that he
wanted all tbe facts brought out I
talked the matter over with my wife
and decided it was best to make the
matter public Wilson was there
but he did not urge me I did moat
of the talking myself
Kerby Insisted that Lawler knew
there was a copy retained in the de
partment He said lie knew there
was a copy there At least he knew
that until a month ago I had kept
It In a ccnftdentlal file then It tits
appeared I am sura it was dropped I
droppedUnto I
into the drawer of Private Secretary
Cares dOkt tnw Massey take the
paper out of the drawer one day
when Carr telephoned for something
else I think It was a copy of the
bawler draft
Kerby denied upon Vertrees
questioning that his was a selfish
motive In making his statements to
the press He said when he read
Balllngera denials of the existence
of the Lawler draft he saw no
chance of getting on the witness
stand himself and it was better to
make the Information public Kerby
withstood a grilling by Vertrees and
Senator Root upholding his conten I
tion that his duty was to the gov I
ernment and not to Ballinger I
Under the questions 6t Represen I
tative Denby Kerby charged that
Ballinger entered the office of the
secretary of the interior with the In
tontlon of discharging F H Newell I
director of reclamation service lie
offered the place to H n Thomp
son city engineer of Seattle Kerby
asserted that Carr had said Yes
and they will have a hard time get
ting It when asked by Massey If I
he knew what that means
