Applause Sweeps Republican
Side of House When Jurist's
Name Is Mentioned.
Congressman fllmon D. Fess. an Ohio
Republican, occupies the position today
of having Inadvertency "nominated"
Associate Justice Charles E. Kughea as
the Republican standard bearer.
The peculiar thing about It Is that
Mr. Fess Is a supporter of former Sena
tor Theodore E. Burton for thn Repub
lican Presidential nomination.
While the Burton supporter stood non
plussed In the House late yesterday he
heard loud applauio grip- tho Repub
lican side of the chamber. It was the
first . opportunity House Republicans
had had to cheer the name of Hughes
Ad they sesed It.
Applause Sweeps G. 0. P. Side.
Mr. Fess mentioned tho name of
Justice Hughes during; the debate on
the Burnett Immigration bill. In reply
to a speech of Congressman George R.
O'Shaunessy. of Rhode Island. Mr. Fees,
formerly a college president, spoke of
the founding of Brown College, from
which came suqh educators and states
men as Horace Mann. E. Benjamin
Andrews, Charles is. Hughes, and oth
ers. As Mr. Fess reached the name of
Justice Hughes the applause suddenly
awept over the Republican side and the
Ohio member stood In rather embar
rassed fashion attempting to proceed.
Just at that moment the time of the
Ohloan expired. Hs asked for one min
ute additional, whtcn was allotted by
Mr. Burnett, In charge of the bill,
"Is Justice Hughes now placed In
nomination?" asked Congressman Gal
lagher of Illinois.
"I can say more about that If he gets
to be President," said Mr. Fobs. Again
the applause broke out.
Members Rush In.
It was the first time that tho name
of the associate Justice has been men
tioned In Houso debates since the move
ment began to make him the Presiden
tial nominee, and tho Republican ap
plause was so loud and persistent that
members rushed In from the cloak
rooms and corridors to ascertain the
clause of tho demonstration.
Mr. Fess supported the literacy test
provision of the Burnett bill, but when
he was yielded an additional minute of
time, Mr. Burnett facetiously remark
ed: "I am not yielding time to the gentle
man to make a Presidential nomina
tion." I "Then I withdraw the nomination."
Bald Mr. Fess. while tho Democrats
