Municipal Pier OUR NATIONAL CHAIRMAN We print elsewhere in to day's paper a brief sketch of the Chairman of the Demo cratic National Committee, Honorable Cordell Hull. Judge Hull is well-known throughout the country as the author of some of the most important legislation enacted by Congress in re cent years; notably, the In come Tax Law, declared con stitutional and upheld gen erally by the United States Supreme Court; the Federal Inheritance Tax Law; legis lation stabilizing the value of Liberty Bonds; and much of the reconstructive legis lation following the World War. He has left an indeli ble impress on the Federal Statutes of the country, and the nation is deeply indebted to him for his contributions thereto, and his unquestion ed influence in shaping the trend of legislation along safe but progressive lines. ! No other Democrat in the country, perhaps, could have been selected to head the Na tional Committee, who at once commanded the confid ence of the industrial, finan cial, and business world to such a degree as Judge Hull., His fourteen years in Con gress stand out conspicuous ly as an unassailable record of high character, command ing intellect, and unselfish devotion to duty. From 1912 to 1921, his intimate associa tion with all classes and con ditions of business, brought about by his framing and ?handling many of the most important measures before the country, effectuated a na tion-wide esteem and confid ence in his surpassing ability and integrity of purpose. This esteem and this con fidence, Judge Hull has brought with him to the Democratic National Com mittee. Nor is it limited to the Democratic Party. Din ing his memorable career in Congress he possessed the unbounded respect and con fidence of Republicans as well as of those of his own party. "Whenever he spoke" ?said a Republican con gressman prominent in the councils of that faction in the House?"we Republi cans all sat up and listened and took heed, for he always 1 held the view that taxation, the tariff and economic leg islation generally, were mat ters that never should be dealt with in a partisan spirit, but should be consid ered upon a scientific basis for the general welfare of the government and the peo ple alike," The tribute paid him by the Democratic leaders of the present House, in reso lutions passed on the day following his election as Chairman of the Democratic National Committee, recited his patriotism, statesman ship, intimate knowledge of political history, and essen tial elements of leadership. They closed by saying: "Knowing his personal char acter, unselfish devotion to his country, and his ability as a leader disclosed during his long service in this House, with confidence in the success of his leadership, we pledge to him, as to our fellow-democrats through- ? out the nation, our united support." The Democratic Party is! indeed to be congratulated that Cordell Hull consented to make the personal andj financial sacrifice involved I in his assuming the national | leadership. But they feel, [ to a man, that it means ani undivided support and al-j legiance on the part of the, Democracy of the nation,! that shall lead to certain I victory in 1924. Foreign Trade Convention Philadelphia, March 28.?In com- ! mon with the executives of all the ! States in the Union, Governor E. Lee | Trinkle of Virginia is quick to sense | the importance of the Ninth National j Foreign Trade Convention in this city, May 10, 11 and 12, to the indus trial and agricultural prosperity of America. Responding to the invita tion of the local committee of arrange ments, Governor Trinkle writes: "It is with much pleasure I learn that the Ninth National Foreign Trade Convention will be held in Philadelphia and will he devoted to a discussion of the ways and means of promoting American foreign trade. "Theire is no more vital question be fore the American people today than iore'gn trade. Without a broader market for our goods, production must decline with all the accompany ing evils oi industrial idleness, low wages, social unrest, and an impaired standard of living. American devel opment is to a large extent dependent o nan em'adged demand lor American products, which means that the United Mates must actively compete in the world's markets for a larger share of the world trade. "With a sufficient volume of busi ness, it will be possible to maintain American standards and realize our national economic aspirations. We must, therefore, of necessity, look to the international markets for a con tinuation of our national prosperity. "The Ninth National Foreign Trade Convention can render a most im portant service to the nation, and I neartily indorse its purposes." While unly four delegates from Virginia were at the Eighth National Foreign Trade Convention at leveland it: Tin: 1, a much larger attendance is expected at the Philadelphia gather ing because of the realization of its direct effect on Virginia's prosperity, agricultural vas well as shipping and commercial. Not only national but wi.rld wide interest is being taken in the convention, and already delegates are being registered from such far- 1 off places as Johannesburg, South ! Africa, Manila, Valparaiso, Rio de I Janeiro, Barcelona and Naples. The St. Louis Chamber of Com- i mtrce has appointed o3 of the leading , manufacturers and business men of : that city as delegates. Similar action 1 has been taken by the Los Angeles Chamber and other organizations ail along the Pacific coast, in addition to the registration of many individual delegates. Any manufacturer, busi ness man, or any person interested in i foreign trade may register. "Greater prosperity through great er foreign trade" is the convention slogan, while the basic theme will be, "Financing and Expanding Foreign Trade." it will be the greatest gath ering of the business men of the Unit- | , cii States ever held, and every phase j and angle of foreign trade will be dis I cussed by experts, hard-headed, prac- ; tieal men, with a thorough working knowledge of t'neiv subjects. Faddists I and theorists, and politicians are barred. Every delegate will have the benefit of the Trade Adviser Service, by which his individual foreign trade problems will be solved, and there will be many other valuable features free to those attending. Philadelphia's hotels are all within easy walking dis tance of the Academy of Music, where the sessions will bo held. Reserva tions should, however, be made early, as between 4.000 and 5,000 delegates (are expected. Tomorrow, Friday, March 31st, The Gazette will pub lish its NATIONAL PUBLICITY EDITION comprising 60 pages. The paper will go to press at sharp noon and be in the hands or its carriers, at the news stands, ana1 in the mail shortly thereafter.
