Georgia today lifted thai controversy

The Incident occurred In connection
with extended remarks made by Sen
ator Root in discussing the llorah
solution. Mr. Root said that the
national govornmont could not ufford

South, if need should arise for such
Also In speaking of the observance
of t'.io l Ith and 15th amendment to
t'e constitution, he said that from
lime to time "things happen" in the
Southern States which should not be
permitted by the States nnd which
- hould be corrected. ;i not by the
States themselves, tin n by the na
tional government. Later he took oc
. .'ision to emphasize this statement.
When llrst made, the declaration
..used a visible stir on the Demo
ratic side of the chamber and the
feeling was intensified by the repeti
tion, n became manifest at once that
il anything was lacking to insure op
position by the Southern Senators to

When Mr. Root, concluded his
speech about o'clock, he left the
chamber. Mr. Bacon immediately ox
pressed a desire for specifications re

not roach Mr. Ftool until after Senator
Ueverldge had made a feeling reply
to the New York senator's speech and ,
the senate was prepared to adjourn.

Root enumerated the bo-called i peon
age system, the lynching of negroes
and the disfranchising provisions,
such as the "grandfather" clause, in
the constitutions of many of the
Southern States, as some of tlie things
calculated to deprive the black man
of that equal protection which the
ltoot Makes Threat.
"The people of the United States
are willing to fold their hands and
wish the Southern people godspeed
In working out their delicate prdblem
so long as they do so in kindness; but
if there should be such oppression as
to call for the exercise of the power
of the t'nlted States to enforce the
amendments that power will be exer
cised and it ought to be." he said.
Mr. Bacon replied that such ques
tions as lynching and peonage were in
no wise cognate to the subject under
discussion. Ho accounted for lyt\e.h

showed that there had been a lynch

charge of peonag \ he declared that
there was no practice in tlie South
I worthy of that name.

Indicating doubt as to Mr. Root
having had such offenses In mind. Mr.
Bacon said lie was sure the N'ew York
senator was really Inveighing against
supposed offenses against the fran
"Perfectly." responded Mr. Root.
Then he added: "If the constitution
is so amended as to provide for the
election of senators by direct vote, the
national government must retain the
power to make those elections free
and unhampered. Without this privi

i States surrenders the power of its own

such as th? 'grandfather' clause?"
asked M I*. Bacon.
"Without the slightest doubt." said
i lie \ew Yorker.
I'ut on Notice.
"Well," returned the Georgian,
"the senator certainly has put us on
"I meant, to put you and also the
country on notice." replied Mr. Root,
speaking with force.
Replying. Mr. Bacon said that to
change the manner of electing sena
tors without giving tho States control
was a grave risk. Speaking of the
past experiences of the South he said:
"If Southern people had not con
tended heroic-ally against conditions
which confronted them, civilization
would have been destroyed in the
South and it would have been but a
short time before it would have been
destroyed in the entire nation."
Alter a few remarks by Senator
Fletcher of Florida regarding the so
called peonage system ol" the South,
the Incident closed for the day with
Senator Borah's declaration that
everybody knew perfectly well why
the question of lynchlngs and peonage
had been brought Into'controversy.
