Mr. Koerbel told Walter T. -Couper, chairman of the special committee, We do not need it. The motives behind it are not pure. Why don't tipy come out In the open? -We are going to fight this issue. It Is such things that make anarchists. Why always pick on the jenr?" ne asked. Speaking at length from prepared manuscript, in which Mr. 'Koerbel Included a letter written the public press by George F. Johnson, he added other remarks when the chairman tried to point out that Mr. Koerbel's idea that wrh a file would expose the 111 f fortune of recipients of charity 1 wa. unfounded. "You haven't a single leg to j stand on." Mr. Koerbel declared, I "and I challenge anyone to prove that there have been any wholesale I duplications."

"The motives behind it are not nure," he repeated, "and I have iinea on this from out of town. I'll cast my lot with Mr. Johnson." While Mr. Koerbel was not the 1rst speaker when Mr. Couper ailed the hearing to order and explained how the suggestion for a -entral index file had been made to he supervisors, he was the most v.eoroua in opposition. In his opposition he was support-d by former Mayor John J. Irving. Robrt T. Johnson, associated with Mr. Koerbel in the humane society, and Z. Bennett Phelps, a director of the society. Those who supported the Idea of a file were Grover Burns, who said he represented the directors of the Kinshamton Rotary club, and he offered a resolution passed by that bodv endorsing It W.
