Permit mo to correct a statement
that appeared In yesterday's Issue ot
the 11 it 1 I c 1 1 n. referring to the ap
pointments of Dr. Cofcr nnd James
P. Morgan, which credits mo with
saying that "Thero Is nothing for us
to do in tho matter. The appoint
ments hail been mado beforo we were
asked for our endorsement."
I mado no such statement. Your
reporter asked mo yesterday morning
If I Intended to have the toniiulttee
called together during tho day (yes
terday) to pass on the appointment
and I told him 1 did not think n
meeting would bo called, as the ap
pointments had been made. As a
matter of fact, the Governor held
back the nppolutnicnts nwniting ac
tion by our executive committee, but
tho membors were busy with tho
convention nnd other matters, so
that 1 was unnlilo to get a quorum
together Monday morning.
