We simply release the roads

can go to the opposite extreme
and establish complete Govern

example, by regional corpora

taken up by our committee and by
Congress at once. This is what -Mr,
McAdoo said ln his letter:
The war Is ended and we are
now confronted with the nec
essity either of legislating intel
ligently about the railroad prob
lem at this session of the Con
gress or of promptly returning
the railroads to their owners.
Then he proceeded to say in the
ter that there is no time to legislate
at this session of Congress, and that
! therefore there should be a five year's
extension of the period. He says fur-
nve-year period is granted the rail-
tbe real bottom of the whole thing.
Mr- President, why legislate at this
particular three months' session? He
says we must have the legislation at
this three months session or we must
coming belore the country at the con-
elusion of peace, including the rail
1 rodas, should we not have an extra
1 session of Congress after the 4th of
, March to consider this subiect. which
! Mr- McAdoo says must be considered
111 lne nexl lIlree monins or not at an
: for years? I should like to know
Mr. President, why not be frank?
Many of us, or at least some of us,
thought that the railroads were
taken over for the purpose of in -
one, have not condemned the admin
istration ot the railroads. I have
done everything In my powir to make
It a success. 1 did believe that It
was the first step toward establish
ing In this country Government own
ership, and the taking over of the
telegraph and the telephone and the
cable tor war necessities after the
war was over rather confirmed me In
my Judgment on that subject. a
But. Mr. President, we have 21
months arter the close of the war,
which will be considerably over two
years, not yet to pass a railroad bill
providing for complete Federal con
trol and turning the property back
to the owners'or else deciding in
favor ot Government ownership.
Now, why not meet the issue
frankly and fairly? I believe the
reason why they do not wish to meet
it ffow la that they know the people
of this country are not in favor of
Government ownership, and it 1j pro
posed to put Government ownership
over under the guise of an extension
to make a test of Government control
for the period of Ave years. Con
gress deliberately acted upon this
fui;eet lait wiii'.rf'" aru' fixed i)
monihs as the period witiin which
legislation might !jo had for .he
pv( ier control o' the railroads when
the; are turned tack, and I ee n
reasi n why we stiould now change
tint 21 months.
Mr. President, I know of no reason
why we should not proceed at once
with this very important question
and why we should not frame a bill
Uluring this session, and if it can not
be passed in the three months
know of no reason why there should
not be an extra session or why it
should not ho pnssed at the next ses
slon of Congress. We have ample
time for this legislation before the j
21 months expire. Hut Mr. McAdoo j
says the present legislation Is en-1
tirely inadequate for the operation '
from now to the end of the !21 I
months. He does not suggest in
what it is inadequate. He has not:
been to Congress toask for legishi-,
tion to cure the defects in the act.
He says that there, is a dispute about i
the authority of the States and the i
Federal Government. I say abso- j
lutely that the Federal Government
has not recognized any State author-1
ity whatever, but it controlled the
railroads absolutely as the Director
General saw tit, without regard to i
State commissions. 1 am not com-1
plaining of it; I am merely stating in
as a fact.

Mr. President, I predict that at the

Wm. Gupton, Mayor Nashville,
Dear Sir: In company with another
minister, 1 aws present In the City
Court, Monday, December 9th, when
the case of a Negro criminal was
called for trial. You were also pres
ent. We, together, listened to the
testimony of a high peace officer.
I was shocked beyond measure, at
the vile, filthy language used by that
officer in the presenco of women. 1
did not know that a white man was
capable of such conduct, and cannot
yet understand It, unless it is pre
sumed that Negro women are regard
ed' by white men as being no higher
than rbutes. I say "white men," be
cause this outrage was committed In
a court room where white men have
absolute control, and in the presence
of both t.he Mayor of the city and the
whom seemed to take cognizance of
.Tudge of the City Court, neither of
the offense, or appeared to consider
! that an offense had been committed
at all, against common decency.
I think you will agree with me
when I say that If a single white
woman had been present in that court
'room, that officer would not have!

sessions of the court, and have heard
evidence given by both white und

Letter to Judge Madison Wells,
lion. Jude .Madison Wells,
City Court, Nashville, Tenn.:
Dear Sir: It was my privi.cge to be
present in your court Dec. fith, when
the case of a Negro criminal was
called. I have witnessed a number
of court scenes, but for the first time
iu my life did I hear a witness repeat
buch language in the presence of wom
en, as your arresting officer used in
te.-.tifying before a court of jusfice.
1 did not know such language was al
lowed in a court room, even though
nobody was present hut men.
I aws shocked beyond measure at
the use or such language in the pres
ence of the women of my race. In
tills, I suppose, I felt just like a white
man would have felt had a Negro been
guilty of such conduct ln the presence
of white women.
We(saw the mayor of the town, who
was present, and the judge of the
court permit the use of language in
open court that was unprintable. I
do not think that there was anything
connected with the case to warrant
that ollicer in presuming that the, col
ored women who were looking ln his
mouth when he used this vile lan
guage, were not respectable and de
cent. It might be that he does not
consider any. Negro woman respecta
ble or decent.
Judge, we as a race, resent these
insults with all our souls, even though
they are committed in the name of
"When the righteous are in author
ity, the people rejoice; but when the
wicked beareth rule, the people
mourn." Prov. 29:2.
Your humble servant,
J. A. JONES,
Judge Wells' Reply.
I do not quote Judge Wells' reply,
it being quite a lengthy document. I
will say, however, that It is a respec
table instrument; It did not touch
the real point at issue the use of
the vile, filthy language in the pres
ence of colorew women. I insist still
that it was not necessary in that case
for tho witness to repeat the lan
guage, verbatim, in order to have a
"whitei man's Justice" meted out to
that prisoner. I admit that there
are times when it may be necessary
for the exact language ot an indi
vidual to bo repeated ln a trial, but
in such cases the court room is clear
ed of females or minors, as the case
As to the Mayor's reply, it Is pass
ing strange to me that he could not
recollect anything "out of tho ordi
nary" taking place that day in the
court room. It that was a sample ot
tho court scones, then I say. Lord,
have mercy upon our city courts.
