KKMKMREK THE DATES'
Several weeks ago tii Democratic State Committee met at
Louisville for the purpose of considering ways and means of mak

right to vote.
At that meeting, which I was unable to attend each of the
Democratic members of Congress was made chairman of the

In my humble opinion uothinp could have been more unwise.
Here I em, by the trace f the people of our district, 700 or 800
miles from the scene w!6 the work is to be done. How can I
execute the commission with which the people sent me to Wash

suade the people to register although it be something thut

Under ordinary circumstances I nlight very properly. have
gone to Kentucky at short intervals and still kept ln touch with
my work here.
While I write this and at all times during the last few months
I have been peculiarly sltaateO here. An appropriation bill car
rying nearly twenty-four million dollars is now, and during the
months Just mentioned, has been In dispute and controversy be
tween the United States . Se::ute and the House of Repre
sentatives. This dispute between the two Houses has been sub
mitted to three conferees from the Senate and three from the
House. I am the ouly Democratic conferee on the part of the
Millions of dollars of the peop'es' money depend upon the re
sult of this conference. For months, I say, this conference has
been pending, each conferee contending for the adoption of his
Jwn views. ,
Without breach of modesty i can say, and no one here will
dispute it, that my views relative to the most Important features
of the bill have been acte;tef by the conferees and adopted by
I he House. '
That conference report is now before the Senate for its adoption,-
rejection or ameudmeut. If it should be adopted by the
Senate just an It is, then the work is over. But it it should
Le rejected, then all would have to be gone ver again. How
over, It Is reasonably certain that It will y . be either rejected
or accepted as a whole. Im teui. it is virtually certain that it
will be adopted by the Senate with two or. three amendments.
It is Impossible for me to know ln advance wheu the Senate
will take up the matter for a vote. ; ' ' '
But, immediately the Senate acts. I must just simple must
be here to help defeat or pas? the Senate amendments ln the
i . House. As I am the only House Democrat on the conference
committee, I am, in consequence, the only Democrat in the
House who is familiar with all the minor details ot the bill.
Because ot this fact, the Democratic organization In the House
demands that I remain here until the bill is finally disposed ot.
I shall remain here rec-rdles of personal political results at
Boot, not merely because my colleagues in Congress demand It,
but because I must do my duty by those who sent me here, let
to me' happen what will. ,
Since I am thus situated, 'I take this means of imploring the
, Democrats to permit nothing whatever to deter them from reg
' littering, and thereby preserve the right to vote In the future,
' I appeal to all Democrats In every p'recinct, not only not to
me in this respect, but not to fail themselves by preserving
their future rig 'at of suffrage.
May I not only trust that every Democrat will go to the proper
voting precinct to register, but that each one will see that all
the neighbors go.
Just as soon as Imperative tfutles here at Washington release
me I shall leave tor Kentucky to co-operate with my party lo
looking to Its future success. '
' In the meantime, I feel sure that the Democrats,, particularly .
those of the county and precinct committees men and women
