Pincliot on the witness stand tho
BnlllngerPInchot Inquiry entered Its
second phase today The dismissed
chef of tho forestry bureau before
being sworn drematlcally declared
I thLt when history had boon told the
country would demand a verdict Jn
hnnnony with the general conviction
that tho secretary of the treasury had
been unfaithful to the public whoso
property ho has endangered and to
th i president whom ho had deceived
t Mr Glavis the Cunningham coal
claims and Attorney Brondels all
stood aside to make room for JUr
Pcho fcr Attorney George W
WJmton Ills peibonal friend and for
hip story of Secretary BalllngerB
I dealings wtth the water power sites
of the public domain
Mr PInchot accused Secretary Bal
linger with having made an cxplaua
I on of his conduct to the president
that was essentially false He
chrgcd him with being a dangerous
enemy to conservation He charged
blm with having made a statement
I shown by undisputed documentary
pvldcice to be absolutely false In
three essential particulars He
liarged him with having wilfully
deceived the president and of being
dHoyil to the president
Mr Plnchots first hours on the wit
ness stand were as replete with sen
nation as he had promised and the
nuffocnblng crowd In tile nearing room
trnr intently upon every word that
fell from his lips A trifle nervous at
first Mr Plnchot soon became accus
tomed to his surroundings and main
tained a confident poise thereafter
His recital had not progressed far
however when there came an objec
tion from Mr BalHngera attorney as
to the witness repeating conversa
tions with President Taft It was
contended that the relation of these
conversations would put tho president
In the attitude where he would either
liu e to remain silent or else appear
bpfoie tho committee as a witness
which It was declared would bo un
do Irable
Tlc question wan argued for some
lime end In his statement of the mat
ter tho attorney for Mr PInchot ad
mHd that President Taft In a letter
written subsequent to the conversa
urn hd declared his recollection of
what transpired at tho Interview dif
fered In some particulars from that
nf Mr PInchot The matter was put
f over for consideration by the commit
tee and It la expected a decision will
be announced when the next session
Is held Tuesday morning
Mr PInchot followed up the vigor
Dug attack made upon Secretary Bal
linger in his opening statement by
Declaring ho fully believed in Special
Agent Glavis and was convinced all
long that what Glavis said was true
He characterized Glavlu as a faithful
I nubile servant and declared that tho
lads which he presented proved that
tjfc Halllngor had been unfaithful to
urn trust ofl the guardian of public
pmnerly of enormous values
The conservation movement begun
imlor the administration of President
Roosevelt was progressing splondldlv
1in to the Umo President Taft and
Secretary Bolllngcr took office de
1 clared Mr PInchot Ho charged that
In less than a month thereafter Sec
retary Balllngcr bad broken tho back
bone of the central Idea of the con
uOrvatNm movement by restoring pro
previously withdrawn water power
sites to tho public domain and laying
then open to private appropriation
and monopolistic control
I Mr PInchot declared when the
1
r < oalions were made Mr Balllnger
J Rave no hint that ho would re with
i draw the powersltes and that as a
1 matter of facthe did not rewithdraw
finj of thorn until after Mr Pinchot
1 had gone to the president and made
I a vigorous protest
The rosloratllns of Mr Balllngor
I Wore made without any invc tl r t lIon

with having deliberately ordered offi

would be called as ono IIf his wit
ncBSOB secretary of the Interior
James R Garfield it was announced
also would be ono of Mr Plnchofs
backers
Ono Of tho most dramatic incidents
of the day was left for the last half
hour of the session when Mr Pin
chot declared there was no such de
cision by the comptroller of tho treas
ury ns had been cited by President
Taft In his letter of September 13
1909 to Secretary Ballinger dismiss
ing the Glavis charges and authoriz
ing the removal of Glavis The pres
ident had contended that Mr Ballln
ger had acted under a decision of the
comptroller which permitted no ap
jioal < hii he had abrogated a coop
erative agreement with the agricul
tural department whereby the forest
service was given control of the for
est reserves on Indian lands
Mr PInchot admitted there was an
opinion by the controller which for
I bade the detail of a clerk from the
forest service to the Indian office but
I contended that It had nothing what I
ever to do with the work of the for
est service In the field I
I Mr Plnchots Implication that Pres i
ident Taft either bar been miisled or
utterly mistaken brought out a rapid
firo of questions from Senator Root
Senator Sutherland and the other
members of the committee They
read Into tho records various de
cisions of the comptroller which they
contended had a bearing on the mat
ter but Mr Plnchot would not with
draw from his position that thero was
absolutely nothing in the decision to
which President Taft must have re
ferred which In any way warranted
the abrogation of the cooperative
agreement by Secretary BalHngor
He declared In fact that a previous
opinion specifically held that the
agreement was lawful
This feature was temporarily
passed over but It was evident from
statements made by members of the
committee that they would tako it up
more fully before Mr PInchot was
Tho Indications were when adjourn
ment vas taken that the former for
ester would be on the stand for some
time to come One of tho minor
charges made by Mr PInchot was to
the effect that Mr Balllnger as com
missioner of the land office in 1907
protested against the creation of the
Chugnch forest reserve in Alaska
The reserve was created over his pro
test however and Includes most of
the Cunningham coal claims
Tho forenoon session was devoted
in part to a further examination of i
W W Barr of Seattle as to tho
agreement now In effect between him
and L R Glavis as to obtaining tim i
ber lands in Washington Barr said
Glavis was able to glvo him Informa
tion as to the location of available
lands which he had never been able
to get before and the effort of the
comlmttecmon was clearly directed
toward bringing out the fact that I
Glavls within two months after he
had loft the government service was
engaged In using the knowledge he
had gained ns a public servant for the
benefit If private parties Just as ho
charged Secretary Balllnger with do
ing after retiring from office as com I
missioner of the general land office I
7 Barr said that If the deal and GIn i
vis had entered Into was carried I
through Glavjs share in the profits
would be about 10000

BalllngcrPlnchot Inquiry this after
noon rend a statement to the commit
tee before being sworn In which he
I charged Secretary Bollinger with
falsehood and disloyalty to President
I Taft and declared that Mr Ballinger
should be dismissed from the service
I Washington Feb 26Mr Pinchot
made to the BalllngerPlnchoL Inves
tigation committee this statement of
his charges agalnnt Secretary Ballln
get when he went on the stand today
What I desire to lay before the
committee IK a consecutive story of
my experience with Mr Balllngor In
relation to the conservation of nat
ural resources Among several other
matters there arc three principal
importance to be called to your atten
I tion
Tho first of these concerns the pol
>
j
k
icy devised and inaugurated by tho
last administration of protesting
against monopolistic control of the
water powor sites owned by the peo
ple
UI shall show you that Secretary
Ballinger entered his office with the
clear determination to make short
work of that policy that he reversed
It so far as he was allowed to do so
that he restored the power sites to
entry without the remotest idea of re
withdrawing them and that finally
when I charged him last autumn to
the President with being an enemy
of the policy of conservation ho
clapped the climax by giving to the
President himself an explanation of
hie conduct that was essentially false
The second has to do with my con
nection as a government officer with
tho Cunningham coal cases and with
the Glals charges I shall show you
how the forest service became In
volved In these cases and how Glavis
submitted his facts to me I believed
then as I believe now that he told
the truth I am convinced now as I
was when he came to me that Glavis
was a faithful public servant and that
the facts which he presented prove
that Mr BalHngor had been ifrtialth
ful to his trust as a servant ot the
people and as the guardian of public
property of enormous value
I shall show that since I learn d
the facts you have heard from Glavis
and others which I am about to lay
before you I have acted steadily In
tho light of them as It was my duty
both as a public officer and as a citi
zen to do I Bhall show you that In
pursuance of that duty I laid before
the President both my word of mouth
ajiiUIn a litter pfNovv J a statement
of my conviction that Secretary Bal
linger has been a dangerous enemy to
conservation
I shall show you that this letter
was submitted by the President to Mr
Balllnger and that as part of his re
ply he laid before the President a
statement concerning the Cunningham
coal cases which statement Is shown
by undisputed documentary evidence
to be absolutely false in three essen
tial particulars It will then appear
that Mr Ballinger wilfully deceived
the President and was disloyal to him
Tho third principal matter Is con
corned with the attitude of this gov
ernm > nt In law and administrative
practice toward the conservation of
the national resources belonging to
the people
I desire to show you that the story
of Glavis courageous and successful
fight to protect the property of tho
people which ended In his dismissal
without a hearing Is but a single I
chapter In the history of the public
lands I shall show you that under
our present law and practice the more
difficult task falls on those who would
protect the public property and not on
those who would despoil It and that
under the present system the betrayal
Into monopolistic control of what be
longs to all of us Is made easy and
often in practice Inevitable
The Imperative duty before this
country Is not merely to get rid of an
unfaithful public servant A far more
Important duty Is to bring about a
fundamental change In the law and
tho practice toward conservation to
prevent for the future what has been
In tho past the most inevitable sacri
fice of the public welfare and to make I
possible here the utilization of the
natural resources and the natural ad
vantages for the benefit of all the
people instead of merely for the profit
of a few
When this story has been told and
the witnesses whom I shall ask you
to call have been heard you will real
ize that the Interests of the country
are not safe in Mr Bellingers hands
and that the public demands of this
committee a verdict in harmony with
tho general conviction that the secre
tary of the Interior has been unfaith
ful both to the public whoso property
he has endangered and to the Presi
dent whom he has deceived
U W Barr the Seattle timber deal
er who bocumc no tangled up on the
stand yesterday when testifying as to
an agreement he had entered into with
Louis R Glavin as to tho location of
timber claims following the latter
dismissal from the service was re
called today
I The witness was questioned further
concerning his Umber operations The I I
questions were directed in the endeav
or to prove that while Glavio is charg
ing Mr Balllnger with having become
counsel for the Cunningham group
after being land commissioner and
giving the claimants the benefit of I
knowledge obtained In the govern
ment service Glavis himself Is now
making use of the knowledge of public J
lands by entering into an agreement
with a tinioor dealer Mr Barr sam
he had ordered nis office In Seattle to
send out tuo agreement between him
Gel and Ulavis

Ktruclcd by Glavls to work In harmony

Tho doctors are quoted as Baying
that tho poison wan a type that al
though its ultimate effects are as
deadly as are those of strychnine
has the power to change tho symp
