mined by "insurgents" to .be
hopeless , I cite that the "insur
gents" who participated in the
House caucus did not try to con
centrate their votes upon any
one member , but scattered them
indiscriminately upon several ,
neither of whom had been , or
wasK a candidate. Likewise ,
the twelve republicans , who , at
the last , did not vote for Cannon
neither did they concentrate
upon one candidate , but scatter
ed their vote upon four. In
their justification , it had been
determined that very morning ,
in caucus by "insurgents , " .the
defe'at of Cannon legitimately
being regarded as impossible ,
that "insurgents" exercise their
individual choice as to whether
they would vote for Cannon ,
without the propriety of their
course being questioned. I , with
a majority of the 27 "insur
gents , " kept out of the caucus to
avoid being held by its action as
to Rules , a non partisan ques
tion , but held myself as much
bound by its action as to nom
inations , a partisan question , as
if I had actually participated
therein. For whom should I vote ?
Insurgents had gone to the limit ,
in co-operation with the demo
crats , for rules reformation , this
is a non-partisan question. Here
was a partisan question of the
highest order , the speakership.
Nothing could be gained by way
ot the consideration of the
speaker for committee assign
ments , as he knew he did 'not
iKed my vote , and I had opposed -
ed him as to rules. But here
was the president , with his cab
inet officers , here the Republican
organization , numbering seven
for every one "insurgent" . Was
1 to throw overboard the import
ant interests of my district , in
volved in both the Executive and
Lcgi * . ative branches , for naught
hut j lie id lev xpression ofa pro-
V Ubt or resentment against what
had already been determined by
so overwhelming a majority ol
the republican membership ? Of
the three alternatives , to vote for
Cannon , Clark , or one of the four
voted for by the twelve "insurg
ents' " or even a fifth to be chosen
by myself , I chose to take an af
firmative rather than a negative
or neutral position , by voting
for Mr. Cannon. As a republi
can , I thought then , and think
now , that I did morally and po
In conclusion , I call attention
to the fact that my vote cast as
to rules accords in every instance
with t lose of the 27 "insur
gents" universally regarded as
loyal adherents to the cause , and
that my vote upon the speaker-
ship was also in accord with a
- * ' * * majority of the 27 , and a much
greater majority of the "insur
gents in general ; that the great
magazines , conspicuous among
which are Colliers , Success and
La Follette's , unstinting praise
the action of the 27 "insur
gents , " and that the two lattei
include my name and picture
with those of the other 26 undei

Roll of Honor , " and "On the Na
