to Ballinger as a Tricky and
Dangerous Public Man

chot taking the witness stand at tho
BalllngcrPlnchot Inquiry this after
noon rend a statement to tho commit
tee before being sworn in which ho
charged Secretary Balllnger with
falsehood and disloyalty to President
TaCt and declared that Mr Ballinger
nhould bo dismissed from the service
Washington Fob 26Mr Plnchot
made to the BalllngerPIiichot Invcs
0 Illation committee this statement of
his charges ngalnnt Secretary Ballln
ger when ho went on tho stand today
What I deslro to lay before tho
committee Is a consecutive story of
my experience with Mr Bellinger in
relation to tho conservation of nat
uril resources Among several other
matters there are three of principal
Importance to bo called to your atten
Tho first of these concerns tho pol
icy devised and Inaugurated by tho
lost administration of protesting
against monopolistic control of tho
water power sites owned by the peo
I shall show you that Secretary
Ballinger entered his office with tho
clear determination to make short
work of that policy that ho reversed
It so far ns he was allowed to do so
that he restored tho power altos to
entry without tho remotest Idea of re
withdrawing them and that finally j
when I charged him lost autumn to
the President with being an enemy
of the policy of cousorvatlon ho
clapped tho climax by giving to the
President himself an explanation of
his conduct that was essentially false
Tho second has to do with my con
nection as a government officer with
the Cunningham coal cases and with
the GJavIs charges I shall show you
how the forest service became in
volved In these cases and how Glavlfi
iibmlttcd hie facts to mo I believed
r then as I believe now that he told
the truth I am convinced now as t
was when ho came to me that Glavla
was a faithful public servant and that
tho facts which ho presented prove
that Mr Balllnger had been iftrfallh
ful to his trust as a servant of the
people and as the guardian of public
property of enormous value
I shall show that since I learned
tho facts you havo heard from Glavls
and others which I am about to lay
belore you I have acted steadily In
the light of them as it was my duty
both ns n public officer and as a cltl
len to do I shall show you that In
pursuance of that duty I laid before
the President both my word of mouth
and in a letter of Nov I a statement
of my conviction that Secretary Bal
linger has been a dangerous enemy to
1 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
hy undisputed documentary evidence
to be absolutely false In three essen
tial particulars It will then appear
that Mr Balllngcr wilfully deceived
l the President and was disloyal to him
The third principal matter is con
corned with tho attitude of this got
ornm ° nt in law and administrative
practice toward the conservation of
he national resources belonging to
ho people
I desire to show you that the story
of Glavls courageous and successful
fight to protect tho properly of the
people which ended In his dismissal
without a hearing Is but a single
chapter In tho history of tho public
lands I shall show you that under
our present law and practice the more
difficult task falli on thoso who would
protect the public property and not on
those who would despoil it and that
under the present system the betrayal
I Ino monopolistic control of what be
longs to all of us Is mado easy and
often in practice inevitable
1 The Imperative duty before this
country Is not merely to get rid of an
unfaithful public servant A far moro
Important duly is to bring about a
undamcntal change In tho law and
dIe practice toward conservation to I
lrc enl for the future what has been
in the Past the most Inevitable sacri
fice of the public welfare and to make
possible horo tho utilization of tho
natural resources and the natural ad
vantages for the bcncllt of all the
people Instead of merely for the profit
of a few
Vhtii this story has been told and
the witnesses whom I shall ask you
to call have been heard you will real
ize that tho Interests of the country
are not safe in Mr Balllngcru hands
und that tho public demands of this
committee a verdict In harmony with
the genera conviction that tho secre I
tary of the Interior has been unfaith
ful both to the public whose property
he has endangered and to tho Presi
dent whom he has deceived

Amnuw Kennedy the coal expert
who testified yesterday also was re
called thIs morning to arrange a few
Kennedy said ho had been in
structed by Glnvls to work In harmony
with a coal expert sent by the forest
service to Alaska but that Glavls had
never attempted to Influence him in
making his report or finding
Kennedy said it was impossible to
work In harmony with the forest ox
pert who reported tho Cunningham
coal lands worthless as a commercial
The witness estimated tho amount
of coal available in the Cunningham
group at ninety million tons The
Alaska coal ho declared was a good
ns any he had over seen Tho profit

it from 25 cents to GO cents a ton a
net value to tho owners of from t25
