' ' Attack Secrecy On the Question of keeping secret aH local subscriptions, Gov, Cox bulletin ot :The names of amounts subscribed by tncsl dbnors should . not he made .ikioiic locally. . ' T'-fl hereby trive it wide and non exclusive publicity," he continued.4 'but why was the publication to be nly the organ of the secret service? Wny were the names of local con tributors not to be made known? Was it because each contribution vvotild carry its own meaning to the voters in the local communities. Or, if secrecy were guaranteed in the cdmmunities, were Mr. Hays and Mr. Upton to do the same thing in submitting; their returns on box of fice receipts? I cerainly think there is some reason. What' is it? - The public is entitled to know. If Mr. Hays and Mr. Upham do not come forw ard with the ' information, the Republican National Committee ought to remove them both and in sist upon a clean bill of bealth. '-'Furthermore; there should" be some explanation of this being made purely a business affair, participated in by business men and business men only. Unexplained, it carries its own condemnation and exposes the purpose of the whole shameful busi ness. It means that the quota is to be assessed against those who- are to benefit and that the captains of industry who have answered Mr. Hays' roll call are submitting to tax ation with the understanding that was: approved . by : Chairman Hays and Treasurer .Upham and also, he added, it received indorsement from a higher source. Quoting from a "message" written by Senator Harding in the "Official Bulletin" on August 5, Gov. Cdx aaid Senator -Harding expressed bis grati tude for "the enthusiasm shown" in raising the campaign fund. "Thar Mr. Harding is acquainted even with the details, is evidenced by a subsequent passage," said- Gov, Cox which is as follows: - - - 7 . : " 'Through the fine work of your organization we are nearing . that form of political patriotism which expresses itself in support from ev ery county, every state. . Therefore, 1 want all members of 'your organi ration to feel that their efforts are essential to our success in planning for national enlightenment and deep ly "appreciated by me.' " Gov. Cox aaid he depended "whol ly for the purpose of making proof ot his charges, on otticial docu ments which came from Republican headquarters. He did not plan to Send his data to the Senate Cam paign Invesigating Committee,' stat ing privately that the committee could get its information from his address. ; Senator' Newberry, he continued, was convicted in a Republican state and a Republican community, before a Republican judge, grand and petit juries. The Newberry charges, Gov. Cox noted also, were denied. ..Gov. Cox quoted at length from many issues of the . "Upham Bulle tin." The first issue of July 17, he said, contained this sentence: "".Vobody is going to have anything to do with this bulletin who has not had actual experience in digging up money in the field." A statement by Upham said Sen ator Harding's election was the "job." and involved "the simplest principles of salesmanship, knowledge t in our goods, faith in our goods, tact and energy in presenting our' goods," Gov. Cox declared. Gov. Cox read a bulletin statement by Blair that the efforts for funds for forty-one states would be directed from main headquarers. "For the present," said Blair's statement, "our efforts will be direct ed primarily to producing the quotas of the larger cities. Thia does not mean that present state and comity organizations, will be disturbed or re tarded in their activities. - IV 'The quotas which Blair had - in mind were very soon announced." said Gov.' Cox. "The meeting wan : held in Chicago. Mr. Haya addressed it. and spoke his-blessings. Type--written sheets were distributed to those assembled. 1 "I produce here with one of those sheets, which carries quotas as indi cated." Uat of 51 Citiea. i ," At this point Gov. Cox presented the list of fifty-one large cities, and, he said, the allotment would be 31 eenta per capita for each man, woman and child of their 25,500,000 popula tion. Says More ia. to Come. "That the $8,000,000 fund is not to be the final total in the country at large, has already been clearly prov en by the statement of Mr. Blair him self. Further information ia supplied by official Republican documents. For instance, the Bulletin, under date of August 5, announces: "The fol lowing cities in Tennessee are all or ganized for the production of their quotas: Chattanooga, Nashville,; Memphis and Knoxville. Only one-, of these cities is in the $8,000,000 list Memphis is assigned $35,000. The Bulletin of August 16 announces: 'Chattanooga' oversubscribed its quota this week. The balance of the Tennessee cities are being carefully canvassed. "Not a city hi "Arkansas is listed in the $8,000,000 governments. "Only one city in LouisianaNew Orleans. Only one city in Georgia Atlanta. Not a single city in North Carolina, and yet David H. Blair wired the Bulletin as follows: "Why not urge the rest of the United . States to emulate the example of Ar kansas, Louisiana, Georgia .. and ' North Carolina, which are all over the top? North Carolina went ver on the 27th of July, and the end is not yet. "That remote places in Illinois are in the pay territory is evidenced by a line in the Bulletin of August 16 (Continued on page 8, column 4) 'teK-S:" n ;:T n -L--' ft Vr& VVE WILL PLACE ON SALE ) v ; jfi ; IS.
