| RITCHIE POWERFUL
I Opposed “Intense Centrall
I zation” of Power to
m the Last.
BY G. GOULD LINCOLN.
? The sudden death of former Gov.
Albert C. Ritchie of Maryland removes
an outstanding Democratic critic of
the Roosevelt New Deal.
Speaking on “The Concentration of
Governmental Power” at Frederick,
Md., only last Tuesday, Ritchie sharply
criticized certain phases of the New
Deal, which he said would bring about
A “intense centralization of governmen
& tal power” and “direct economic regi
W mentation.”
1 What emirs, t.he fnrmpr Maryland
I Governor would have pursued In the
r national campaign in the event of the
r renomination of President Roosevelt
k ai a New Deal platform by the Demo
M rratic National Convention next June
w probably will never be known. Whether
he would have “taken a walk” with
Al Smith, as the former New York
Governor threatens to do under such
circumstances, is a question. Ritchie
was a life-lcng Democrat. He was
also a devoted supporter of States'
rights under the Constitution.
Friends of the former Maryland
Governor here were taken aback by
his sudden death. He had been among
them in the city only recently, appar
ently in robust health.
Leaders in both parties spoke highly
of him.
Representative Bankhead, Demo
cratic leader, said:
"While I did not always agree with
his views on public questions, I re
' garded him as a man of great Intel
lect and high public character.”
Representative Snell, Republican
leader, said Ritchie “was a very potent
force in the political affairs of the
country. He was a great man in every
respect. His death is a great loss to
| the sober-minded people.”
Ritchie’s address last Tuesday at
tacking the New Deal was only one of
a series of such speeches which he had
made in recent months. Always he
harped on the efforts made by the
New Dealers to concentrate power in
Washington. It was Ijtitchie’s boast
[ that while Governor he kept the State’s
| expenses down and credit up. The
I huge spending program of the Roose
tvelt administration, with mounting
t public debt and huge deficits, met
with the former Governor’s dis
approval.
Ritchie also was an ardent advocate
k of the Constitution, and many of his
addresses in the past have been in
uciciisc; ui viuvuuicm ttb ii u wiit
t ten, with its checks and balances in
f the Federal Government. Speaking
at Frederick, he said:
“In other lands, other constitutes
have come and gone, but through
peace and war, through panic and
plenty, through all the amazing growth
and developments of nearly 150 years,
the American Constitution, including
the first 10 amendments as really part
of it, has lasted. It has been amend
ed, of course, to reflect the result of
the Civil War and in other important
respects, but in its basic and structural
fundamentals it is still unchanged.
Feared Regimentation.
"Now the country is urged to accept
fundamental changes in it. Whether
' one may be disposed favorably to some
of the policies of the New Deal or not,
one must admit that others of its poli
cies involve the theory of direct eco
nomic regimentation and intense cen
tralization of governmental power.
“The moment you undertake to
regiment or nationalize agriculture, in
dustry and our economic order gen
erally; the moment you undertake to
! manage or plan the lives and enter
prises of the American people, that
moment you introduce into this coun
try a new and a different kind of gov
ernment from the one we know and
W under which we have prospered for
almost a century and a half. What
such new and different kind of govern
ment would be, I cannot say. It
might ultimately be fascism or Soviet
ism or communism or Nazism or col
lectivism, or it might be something
t else.'’
Ritchie had been a dominant figure
In Democracy in Maryland for many
years. For 15 years he was Governor,
serving four terms. He smashed all
precedent in the matter of re-election
in the State. He was an outstanding
candidate for the presidential nomi
nation in 1924, at the Madison Square
Garden convention. In 1928 he and
nt.hpr Dpmnrra Hr asnirnnt-c for thp
presidential honor went along with A1
Smith at the Houston convention.
In 1932 Ritchie was again presented
as a presidential candidate. When it
was evident that Roosevelt was to
be the party nominee, after Senator
McAdoo had turned California and
Texas over to the New Yorker, Ritchie,
"* a good party man. accepted the situa
tion and threw his Maryland delega
tion to Roosevelt. He remained en
tirely regular during the 1932 cam
paign.
Got Little 1934 Support.
When President Roosevelt’s New
Deal began to unfold after his inaugu
ration in March, 1933, Ritchie was
Inclined to be critical. Furthermore,
the Roosevelt New Dealers were “off”
Ritchie. There was no real support
among them for Ritchie’s re-election
in 1934, and not a little quiet satis
faction when he went down to defeat
before Gov. Nice, although Nice was
% a Republican.
Ritchie had not given up politics.
Ris friends frankly said not long be
fore his death that he was planning
1 a comeback, and that he had in mind
running for the senatorial nomina
tion in 1938 against Senator Tydings.
a They predicted that he would be
" successful in such a contest. Ritchie
had resented the attitude of Tydings
during the last campaign, when Ty
dings opposed his renomination for
Governor and urged Ritchie to be
come a candidate for the Senate
RBainst fnrnipr Rpnatnr Onldfhnrmiffh.
Republican.
Ritchie's friends and supporters
insisted, however, that he run for
Governor. They had no desire to
see Mayor Jackson of Baltimore
succeed to the gubernatorial office.
Rad Ritchie followed his own inclina
tions he might have taken the sena
M torial nomination. But he felt that
he owed something to his old sup
porters.
Tydings in Strong Position.
Ritchie’s death leaves Senator Tyd
ings in a commanding political position
lh Maryland. Tydings has been a
critic of some of the New Deal, a harsh
critic on the floor of the Senate.
Particularly he has attacked the huge
spending program of the administra
tion.
The junior Senator from Maryland,
Radcliffe, who was a campaign mana
ger for Roosevelt in Maryland in 1932,
has been content to go along with the
* wishes of the administration. Ritchie’s
death threatens to bring a realignment
in Maryland Democratic politics.

frequent trips to Washington for treat
ment by a specialist.
Ritchie often remarked that his de
feat by Gov. Nice “probably was a
blessing in disguise," and that, owing
to a break in his health just before
the 1934 election, he probably would
not have survived the strain of an
other executive term.
Returned to Law Practice.
At the end of his gubernatorial
tenure, Ritchie returned to private law
practice in Baltimore.
News of his death spread rapidly
and expressions of griel and tribute
were widespread, coming from na
tional leaders in all sections of the
country..
One of the first in the State to ex
press condolence was Gov. Harry W.
Nice. Republican victor over the noted
Democrat in the 1934 election.
“I am shocked Deyond expression," >
Gov. Nice said. “The State has sus
tained a heavy loss—a loss that will
be hard to meet."
Ritchie, always a strong personality
and outspoken in his convictions,
ascended to Nation-wide notice in
1922 by his blunt opposition to pro
hibition—a stand that then was un
popular in many sections, especially
the South, Democratic stronghold.
Flaying the eighteenth amendment as
a destroyer of States' rights, he boldly
set forth his position whenever called
upon to speak upon the heated issue.
He was thoroughgoing tn his insist
ence on the application of the old
T»tr__fn nil tha
IM.UV1UUAI1U1I ——
problems of government. He described
his code as “liberalism.” but insisted it
was “a liberalism that often takes us
back to fundamentals.”
His State rights doctrine applied
not only to prohibition, but to such
issues as supervision of industries and
utilities and questons arsing on such
subjects as education and child labor.
So pronohnced was Ritchie’s opposi
tion to governmental regulation of
utilities that he incurred the en
mity of factions in his own party
because of his uncompromising stand.
Bureaucracies and commissions were
abhorrent to him. He was steadfastly
against all manner of censorship. He
believed in an adequate military es
tablishment, however, for the purpose
of maintaining peace and assuring
"respect for our neutrality.”
White House Long His GoaL
Though most presidential aspir
ants develop the ambition for the
highest public office in the land only
after long public careers, Ritchie de
liberately set cut at the beginning of
his public career with the White
House as his ultimate goal.
He abandoned a brilliant and high
ly profitable law practice to enter
public life, undaunted by the fact
that he was serving in a State with
only eight electoral votes and little
national political significance. He did
not allow tradition or custom to
stand in his way. Maryland tradition
and custom for years dictated that
no Maryland Governor shall serve
more than one term. Some have
tried; all had failed. Further
more, the revised State constitution,
which Ritchie’s father, a State judge,
uau ueipea irame, specmcaiiy
stated that rotation in office was de
sirable. Re-election was not pro
hibited, but tradition and the con
stitution advised against it.
Gov. Ritchie was the embodiment of
the Southland with its fine old tra
ditions, its gentle breeding and its
principles. He came from famous
stock. His lather was an eminent
Maryland jurist, his mother one of
the famous Cabells of Virginia, a
family long brilliant in the history of
its State. The Governor was bom in
Richmond, Va., on August 29, 1876.
Young Ritchie, the only child of his
parents, was educated in the private
schools of Baltimore, at Johns Hopkins
University and the University of
Maryland Law School.
When 31, he married Elizabeth
Catherine Baker of Catonsville, Md.
They were divorced nine years later
and Ritchie never remarried. They
had no children.
He was 34 when he began to achieve
his political aspirations. He then
sought and obtained appointment as
people’s counsel for the Maryland
Public Service Commission, scenting
ihere an opportunity for public serv
ice which would lead to advancement.
He became a crusading utility rate re
former.
Fought Gas Kate War.
When Ritchie became people’s coun
sel. the Baltimore Gas Co. had an ap
plication tor a rate increase pending.
The stage was set for Ritchie The
people of Maryland were making their
Ont serious effort to enforce ttwir
* a
right to regulate the public utilities
company. Ritchie studied the books
of the gas company and started utili
ties organizations and aroused the
Staje by countering the demand for
an increase in gas rates by calling on -
the commission to reduce the rates .
then existing. *
A furious struggle followed. Ritchie *
showed from the company’s own fig- *
ures that it was making a high profit. | J
He won his fight, and the company J
not only was denied the right to in- 1
crease its rates, but was compelled to
reduce them. A corresponding slash j
in electric light and power rates fol- 1
lowed. J
Ritchie made no secret of the fact £
that he engaged in the fight with the {
hope that it would lead to his po
litical advancement. He said, with (
his characteristic frankness, that he ,
had deliberately entered politics to ‘
seek high office and the way to do so
was to satisfy the public. He let it be
known that he would be a candidate
for the office of State attorney gen- {
eral. His triumph made him a State
figure and in 1915 he was nominated £
for attorney general and was elected
Oy 25.000 majority.
As attorney general, Ritchie stated
quite frankly that he was a candl- t
date for the governorship. He set j
about to justify his desire tor ad- j
vancement. He organized the first c
law department the State ever had i
a move tnat enaea me employment, oi j
special counsel and saved the StJte a t
great deal of money. t
While serving as attorney general, f
Ritchie also continued as professor of
law at the University of Marylard. <
where ne took his law degree. Wnen j
the war came he was drafted as gen- ,
eral counsel of the War Industries ,
Board and served in this capacity j
throughout the remainder of the war.
After the war Ritchie continued nis
plans for capturing the office of chief
executive of Maryland. On the basis
of his achievements as attorney gen- .
eral, he came out as a candidate on
a platform of reorganization of the
costly and antiquated State govern
ment. , I
Encountered Heavy Odds. t
He haa 3truck up a fast friendship i
through his war service with Bernard
Baruch, New York financier and
chairman of the War Industries .
Board, and this friendship figured
largely in his campaign for elation .
to the governorship. Ritchie was run- J
ning against heavy odds. Sentif.'cnt c
was swinging strongly to the Repub- '
licans in 1919 and Baltimore, for the
second time since the Civil War, had 1
a Republican administration. \
Ritchie’s Republican opponent as- ,
sailed him vigorously as a “tool of t
Wall Street” because of his associa- ,
tion with Baruch. Ritchie made no
reply, confining himself to discussing ,
his proposed State reorganization pro- '
gram. Every time his opponent as
sailed him as a friend of Baruch,
however, he would clip newspaper r
accounts of the speech and send them
to Baruch with a little note: "See s
what this fellow is saying about you, i
Barney." 1
Baruch would reply with a vigorous £
letter: “Go after him, Bert. Lick him; j
he can’t say that about me.” I
With each letter Baruch would send <
a $1,000 check for Ritchie’s cam
paign. He received five batches of ,
clippings and sent $5,000. 1
Ritchie was elected by the hairline
majority of 145 votes. He promptly
went to work to carry out his plat- t
form program of reorganization and
as promptly began his campaign for 8
re-election. He became known as an c
unusually good Governor, and when 1
he set about breaking down the walls
of tradition he succeeded so thorough- f
ly that he came back for his second t
t-PTOi with a. rrminritv of mnro than r
40.000. His second term was marked j
by a reduction of 30 per cent in the
State tax rate. .
Ritchie now began broadening his J
political horizon. He began to estab
lish contact with party affairs of the
Nation. He went to the national con
vention In 1916 as a delegate at large £
and began to attract national atten
tion. He Increased his national status. 1
and in 1930 took a more prominent t
part in the national convention, ha t
1924, at the New York convention, i
his followers were almost as insistent
for him as Alabama was for Under- I
wood. \
Became National Figure.
Ritchie was thinking and talking \
in a Federal way. He began pleading •
the old cause of the rights of States
on national platforms. He championed
the rights of States to regulate their
own affairs; to build their own roads, 1
handle their own agricultural prob- i
lems, educate their own children and
handle their own health problems free
from Federal supervision and control.
Now a national figure, Ritchie ran .
for his third term as Governor and
was returned to office with a majority
of 59,000 He won his fourth term by •
a vote of 66,000. a
Ritchie's firm hold on his State was !
gained without the aid of the old-time
political organization. He had no or- (
ganlzation when he first ran for the
governorship, hut built up his own
old on the Maryland voters by his
.ctual service to them. He was noted j
Dr the smooth-running efficiency of
iis administration and for his ever
ncreasing personal popularity with
he people of the State.
Ritchie was the first Maryland Gov
mor to resist the demands of prohl
iltion forces. He refused to listen to
he demand of the Anti-Saloon League
or State prohibition enforcement laws
nd as a result Maryland never has
dopted a State enforcement system.
He frequently expressed his view
hat prohibition was a matter for
State action. At the famous Jackson
ay dinner four years ago he said:
"To me the question is not at all ]
ne of wet or dry, to use the inept:
hrases of the hour. It involves the I
asic principle of American Govern
lent in all matters restridive of per
onal liberty.
Favored Self-Determination.
"That basic principle is that those
ommunities which want prohibitory
?gislation of this kind are entitled to
iave it, but those communities which
o not want this legislation should not
e forced by other States into taking
So I favor settling this problem
y the traditional doctrine of Ameri
an democracy — self-determination
nd home rule.”
Ritchie did not want to see the
States yield up any of their rights or
Dse any of their vitality. He was the
hamDion of the stronecst and most
igorous possible local government,
ie advocated for all men the fullest
neasure of political liberty.

Will Irwin Holds Charles
Michelson Up as Model
for Position.
By the Associated Press.
NEW YORK. February 24.—Will
Irwin, distinguished international
journalist, suggested to the Republi
can party yesterday that it forget
temporarily its search for a presiden
tial candidate and concentrate on
finding a good press agent.
“I think the press agent would
probably be more important in the
coming campaign, ne ssia. we are
subject in this country to the most
astonishing reversals of public opin
ion and we may now be on the verge
of a great landslide against the New
Deal. If we are, any candidate can
beat Roosevelt, and if we aren't no
one can beat him."
Irwin, chief of the United States
foreign propaganda staff during the
World War and personal friend of
Herbert Hoover, said he didn’t think
he had enough "inventive genius” for
the job.
He did suggest a model, however. He
praised the work of Charles Michel
son, the Democratic party’s publicity
chief, and said he thought the Repub
licans would do well to follow his ex
ample.
"Michelson had enough sense to
personalize the economic collapse,”
Irwin said. “He (Michelson) labeled
it the 'Hoover slump’ and blamed not
the Republican party for the depres
sion, but the ‘Hoover administration.’ ”
Irwin said, however, that he thought
the United States had the only fret
press in the world today.
"It is reasonably free in Great
Britain, but the press there is har
nessed by the severe law of libel and
by their contempt ot court law, which
differs from ours.
“In France the press is still sub
sidized by political and industrial in
terests. But in tnts country tne ad
vertiser, who is often condemned for
bossing the news, actually has made
our press free. He has enamea our
publishers to make an honest paper
pay.”
Irwin also paid tribute to the Ameri
can reporters. “In other countries,
the reporters are really doctrinaires.
They write definitely. from the slam
of their particular party. But in gen
eral our breed is trained to get the
uiu Lucy get mem regardless oi
press agents who sometimes hinder
and in spite of the censorship abroad.
“I don’t believe any piece of news
vital to the public can be suppressed
for long in this country.”
