Jl DDE JAMES A. MEREDITH
Jyilgo James A. Meredith has rendered a distinct service to the S'uto by
accepting appointment to the Supremo Court of Wast Virginia, lie ir? a man
endowed with ail the necessary qualification? of ability ami integrity to lend ,
dignity and aapacltj lo this high Judicial tribunal.
It Is understood that Judge Me?edl-.h was somewhat loath to accept tins >
appointment, but finally gave way to the insistent pressure of tins members of |
the West Virginia ttar. the advice of his many friends and the urging* of practlc- j
ally all of ths Influential newspapers in the state.
Ills was ono of those rare instances where the office seek? the nun. where j
party lines aro forgotten and personal prejudices dropped. There is nothing of I
political significance In the appointment of Judge Meredith. He is deserving of it ;
solely on merit, and It was on merit that lie was appointed.
Oo\ernor Morgan showed good judgment in offering a position on the Su- ,
prema bench to Judge Meredith, and Judgo Meredith performed an not of pat-j
rlotto duty in accepting ;t.
RELIABLE INFORMATION (

II is a matter of current report that i
American bankers have been, or will
shortly be asked to assist in floating a Pi
loan of Jl.SO&.OOO.APO tor Germany. It I I"
1* pointed out that Germany, with her r1'
finances paralyzed. la on the brink ot j I]
*ii "economic and financial precipice." f ;t
and that unless Immediate steps are j ??
taken to restore confidence and bolster ^ ril
In- credit a collapso Is Inevitable. It [ ^
'Is state J tiiat Germany must have at 1 h;
least a billion and a half dollars with ! ?t)
?which t<> accomplish this purpose and to ; cf
purchase two million tors of grain be- i
fore next spring. I ei
' The uuestion of a German loan has I
been the subject of much recent dls- p.
.cussion. but up to this time no plans
Tiavo been formulated on which such a
?loan could be floated. The new loan. ?
according to the present plans, would j
lo guaranteed by France and possibly ?
\ vat Hritain and would be raised by j
private Investment.
? Lefore the flotation of a German loan ?3
y tlie proposed magnitude ts under- jj.
taken, the American pooplo should know j t
?Something definite about conditions in 0;
''tliat country. As It is conflicting re-, ni
lA?rts are In circulation as to the fin- j p,

^inevrety of the German Government, i ?.
AYe are told that Germany is on the p,
.brink of a "precipice" and that* she ir?'
liable to fall into the pit of economic; n
h ;
?bankruptcy at any minute. Hut w e 1 p.
>iavc heard this rumor so many' times 1 ^
?and for so long that the average person J
is prone to become sceptical, ar.d wonder ;
?Just what Is going ort in Germany. ( r,

State's Veteran Legislators
Thumb Nail Sketches of Two Men Who Have Hod Unuiual and
Highly Creditable Legislative Careers.
J'erhnps never before in tlx- history of Weft Virginia politic? have there
been t<? rucli outstanding records as will b" rounded oat in the coming tcsuion
of the legislature. One of them stands unparalleled 3" *<n Indication that Wctt
Virginia v oters are grateful fop past favors. That record la, Soptlittlua Hall's.
The other'Is one Inscribed in West Virginia's honor roll by genator O. C. Coalter.
These two men have records of which they and their respective parties may
well ho proud. At the last session of trie legislature. Senator Cogltrr. "Uncle
Sep'" and Harry WSiss. who was then one of Ohio county's delegates, were walk
ing toward the temporary legislative quarters In the Kanawha county courthouse
when one of the attachec.i of the legislature and a friend pastel them. "Those
three men." the attache said, "arc the oldest in the legislature."
"Why." said the friend, "only the one of them looks old enough to have seen
I very much political service."
"True enough." was the reply, "hut Weiss and Coulter have been In the legis
lature slime they were barely ..Id enough to vote, while 'Uncle Sep' has been there
since Charleston waa a swamp."
Long, Aetlro Career?,
j S'eptimius Hnll of >Jctv Martinsville. West Virginia's best loved Democrat. i? '
proof positive that there Is a fallacy In (he old adage about a prdphet In hi? own
country. Fifty-two \cars ago, "Uncle .Sep" travel.ed to Wheeling to attend tin
! state's legislative convention. At that time he was a hale youth of if3. practicing
law In his home county of Wetscel, where he came while still a boy from Ititchlc
| county, his birthplace. For fifty long years lie served the people of Wetzel
'county. At she ins. session of ihe legislature there was a fitting ceremony when
I he celebrated the fiftieth anniversary of his entrance into public life. Eleven
| times he has gone before the people <>f his county raking cieielon as their repre
jscniati\e in the state legislature, and the Republican landslide of 102:1 failed, even
[in Ms strength, t.. overcome his popularity. Once lie served In tl.e State Senate,
j with distinction. l
| Senator ? "??? Iter's record is one of aimost equal character. He was born in the
fastnesses of Monroe county where !;<? earned hi* early living between the bandies
| of a plow. He came to S'uninvrs county while J'?>t a young man. and entered
! politics. Ills record as a Itepubllcan is unimpeachable, for the first lime in t. c
I history of West Virginia a itepubllcan was elected to his third term in the State
Senate, when Mr. Coalter won that honor In 1920 as the head of the district
ticket In the Seventh district. For twelve years he has served the people of bis
district with honor and distinction. In hi3 home county of Summers, normally
overwhelmingly Democratic. Senator Coalter has been honored with majorities
when every other man on the ticket went down to Ignominious defeat at tba hands
of Democratic voters.
Coalter ror Presidency cf Senate.
These two men ha"c been very active In their legislative lives, jit the last
| seat-Ion Senator t'oalter served actively and with distinction on seven different,,
i committees, among them the committee on finance and tli? committee on hanks
: ami banking, two ..f the Senate's major committees, "t'ucle Sep" served too on
committees of first importance, lie served on the committee of taxation and
I finance, and his voice was repeatedly heard in the councils fighting the battle of
1 the depletion tax.
"Uncle Sep" told a ?;.??>.i yam while in Charleston last time.
"A man owed a tone that I was endorsing," lie said, "and had for many years
been just paying the latere:;!. Finally he came to me and said. 'I've worried along
j with that thing all these years. Sow I'm going to let you worry with it.'
j "That's the way I fee! about West Virginia this year. I'vc worried along for
i many a year, anil now fin going to let the Republicans worry."
i Senator t'oalter hopes p> "top ,.ff" his legislative earorr with one more crown*

I reived much consideration. It is highly probable that he will go into the party
