In reply to criticisms of the demo
cratic press that Governor Hughes is
waving the bloody shirt and stirring
up sectionalism in his remarks on
control of the national government by
the South. Representative Fees, of
Ohio, chairman of the publicity com
mittee of the national republican
congressional committee, gave out
the following statement today:
"The democratic press editorially
takes to task Governor Hughes for
calling the country’s attention to the
sectionalism of the Wilson adminis
tration. It denies the fact of seetion
alisi^--the editorial wrriters lack in
No man who knows would deny
that the Underwood bill retains duties
upon southern products, cotton goods,
race, tobacco, Angora goat hair, etc.,
A.d places twenty articles of agri
culture on the free list—all northern
product*. That is sectional legisla
“If any citizen calls attention to
these facts he is at once accused by
democrats of raising a sectional issue.
This congress is responsible for this
sectional spirit. The Congressional
Record of June 3rd, 1916, records
some interesting data. By special or
I der of the house previously mad*. Re
presentative Aswell, of Louisiana, was
given a stated time to eulogize Jeffer
>on Davis as one of the country’s
patriots. The Record shows his
speech was punctuated by frequent ap
tdause and when it was finished the
Record reads—(prolonged applause).
"Immediately following this speech
Representative Kinheloe. of Ken
p lucky, by special order of the house,
previously arranged, pronounced a
second eulogy upon the head of the
Confederacy, which was closed with
iloud applause). Whfn these two
eulogies were finished the house ad
journed making a day’s work of two
• ulogies upon Jefferson Davis.
“This is but one item of others in
dicating the sectionalism fomented by
the present democratic administration
That republicans are expected to grin
and bear, but say nothing. It is in
keeping with Wilson’s statement in
Philadelphia: I look across the Po
tomac from the White house and view
“On March 1st, the Congressional
Record gives an interesting item of
the same import. Both the 63rd and
64th Congresses had witnessed ef
forts to do away with the element o'
loyalty as a necessary condition for
southern claimants to establish ». case
against the government for damage
arising during the civil war. This
proof of loyalty has been steadily ad
hered to. On March 1st when the
House was considering the subject
| of captured or abandoned property
! an amendment was offered as fol
lows : PROVIDED, that no claim shall
I be allowed an claimant unless it is
proved to the U. S. government dur
ing the Civil War. This amendment
was rejected upon a standing vote
ayes 58, nays 74. A motion was then
made to recommit the bill to the Com
mittee on War Claims with instruc
tions to report back with an amend
ment requiring loyalty as a condition
for any claim. Upon this the yeas
and nays were ordered by Republican
members. By a vote of 187 to 170
loyalty was again made a require
ment. Of course the solid south
voted against it. They were joined
by fourty-three northern Democrats,
five of whom were from Ohio, Allen
Ashbrook, Gorden, Key, and Over
meyer. Neither Brumbaugh, Gard.
nor Crosser voted. Seven of the
forty-three came from Indiana, Baru
hart, Cline, Cox. Dixen, Gray, Lieb.
and Morrison. Neither Adair, Rauch
nor Cullop voted. All the Democrats
voted against requiring loyalty.
"The Committee on War Claims which
has charge of these matters has fif
teen members, nine Democrats and
six Republicans. Of the nine Demo
crats six are from the southern
states including chairman Gregg, ot
Texas; of the three from northern
states two voted with the Democrats
against loyalty. One only joined
the Republcans in their demands for

"If the national treasury is required
to satisfy all the war claims that may
be presented, claims that grow out
of the exigencies of a four years
civil war, whether the claimant was
loyal or disloyal, can any expert ac
countant place a limit upon the de
mands from that source?
“In the 63rd Congress Mr. Under
wood. taking advantage of his posi
tion as floor leader, secured passage
through the House of a special act,
granting a claim without reference
to the loyalty. This was carried
after the most determined opposition
was the opening wedge. In the
light of recent legislation of the most
wasteful character where the treas
ury is drawn upon for southern pro
jects, and in the glare of the proceed
ings of March 1st and June 3rd of
this year, the structures of the demo
cratic press against Mr. Hughes

William Talbot, of Austin, was in
our city a few hours last Saturday,

The attendance last Sunday was
very satisfying. Folks came from far
and near and we had 22G at Sunday
school. It may be interesting to the
public to know that the goal for the
year is an average attendance of 185.
Many think that is too low and the
pastor has agreed to “set ’em up” if
the school beats it. We will give
the average for October next week.
The Epworth League had an in
creased attendance. A number of
young men were present. Let us have
more. The pastor noted the <">od
attendance of young men at even
ing preaching service.
The pastor had the pleasure of at
tending the meeting of the Bey
Scouts in the church basement Mon
day evening. To say we had a good
time would be putting it mildly. It
was the first time we ever attended
such a meeting and the impression

some more. The Scout Master, J. W.
Long, deserves great credit and the
hearty help of parents and all in the
splendid work with the boys and
young men in which he is engaged,

JUDGE MORRISEY’S LETTER.
The following letter from Chief
Justice Morrissey appeared in the
Lincoln State Journal in its issue of
September 29th, 1916:
Lincoln. Neb., Sept. 27.—To the Edi
tor of the State Journal: Your paper
published a tabulation of what pur
ported to be the number of opinions
written by jlidges of this court for
two terms, and then taking these fig
ures as a basis undertook to show
that my friends were making claims
in my behalf that were not warrented
Following this, the publicity bureau
of one of the candidates sent a copy
of your article to the weekly, and I
presume there are those who have
studied the figures and reached the
conclusion that they correctly reflect
the record. For this reason I have
had the records checked up;not for a
part of the time I have been on the
court, but for the whole time. I be
came chief justice of the court Janu
ary 25, 1915, and the first sitting of
the court thereafter convened Febr
uary 1, 1915. Since that date there
have been submitted by oral argu
ment, briefs, or both. 525 cases for
final disposition. In these cases
there have been written 406 opinions,
of which I have written fifty-eight.
As the court consists of a chief justce
and six associate justices, it will be
seen that I have written the exact av
erage of the whole court. Eightv
three cases have been affirmed with
out opinion or otherwise disposed of,
and there are thirty-six cases pend
ing. In the hearing of these 525
cases the records show the members
of the court participating as follows:
Morrissey, in . 508
Barnes, in. 471
Rose, in ...:.. 452
Letton, in . 425
Fawcett, in . 416
Sedgwick, in . 380
Hamer, in . 297*““
During a part of this time Judge
Hamer was sick and this may ex
plain his absence in so many cases.
It will be seen iihat I have participated
in 101 more cases than the average
for each justice, and I have written
the same number of opinions as the
average for each justice, besides hand
ling the work incident to the office of
chief justice. In addition to the
cases mentioned, opinions were filed
in a number of cases submitted be
fore I came a member of the court.
I have not taken these into account
as they belong to a period prior to my
service, and if some judge was behind
with his work I am not responsible
for it, nor is he to be given credit for
it during the period covered by this
I am not saying that the value off a
member of the court may be deter
mined by the number of opinions he
writes, or by the number of cases in
which he participates, but, inasmuch
as the article mentioned dealt with
the number of opinions written during
a part of m term of services, I sub
mit the above figures covering the
whole period from my first day on
the court to the present. Yours trulv,
