Iff 11 In the "Views Afoot" column of the Journal, appeared recently a disoussion the record of Representative Walter Smith as a supporter of Cannonism Washington. It appears that the Atlantic Daily '.v. News, a Smith organ, felt greatly out raged over this article. In a recent i» sue it devoted two and and a half col- 1 umnsto an attempt to disprove the Journal's statements and to a vindic tive attack upon the Journal, filled with abuse and vilification. 'Sm The statements published by the Journal were true. And in order that they may not be forgotten, and that."'"' the peevish News may see them again print, they are republished below., ',E Against Walter I. Smith the Journal's i,.r a a "He has been a faithful supporter of% Jh Cannon, the champion and defender of the Trusts and of Special Privilege. "He voted for Cannon for speaker." Let the Atlantic Daily News do it. Really, let us find out whether it is'® the Journal or the News that is try* ing "to mislead the voters of the dis-. •. trict." Let us see whether the above— statements are "ignorant, prejudiced,.' and wholly false" as the News asserts, and whether they are "a tissue of ig norantand wilful misrepresentation ofj« the facts." Let us find out whether iti'S is the Journal or the News that is the?*" "half-baked, unfledged and uninformed^ newspaper." Yes, it is a "dare" and the News*^ DOES NOT DARK TO DO IT. Still, since the Congressional Record ia conclusive, and since the Journal has taken the'5' trouble to tell the News just where to look for the evidence, it seems that the News ought to do it. And having looked up the proofs, the News really ought to publish the result. But the News WILL NOT DARE TO DO THIS HI THER. If the News doesn't dare to look into these things, it ought in all fairness to give this challenge the same publicity among its own readers that it gave to the attack upon the Journal. But per haps the News QARES NOT DO THIS EITHER. Who can tell? At any rate the bluli'is called. Come along, please, and let us have the proofs. It is up to the News. Let us see its superior brand of wisdom in ac tion. Incidentally, the time is past when a representative in Congress can "blow hot" at home and "blow cold" in Washington. And the day has gone by, too, when abuse and recrimination will take the place of evidence that voters can turn over and weigh for themselves. Note:—The statement by Dr. Porter field is in a sense ancient history. It is interesting to note that his narrative ENDS with the very day on which the list of [events set forth above against Mr. Smith BEGINS. A newspaper like the News might make use of such a statement to blind the eyes of voters, but it would be worse than useless even for this purpose if brought up to date. The Journal can demonstrate this to the News, also, if the latter so desires, ft Teacher in embroidery work and fine needle work. Does stamping to order. Week commencing May, 2, lfrlO.

"He voted AGAINST the resolution which sought TO PUT AN END to Can non's rule, by taking away his power V, to appoint committess." "When finally a revision of the rules became inevitable, he voted FOB a no minal compromise, by which the speak er RETAINED all of his original power." The second of these statements is proved by the Congressional Record in v Washington. The record of the vote is foiind on page four, under date of March 15,• 1909. On pagesix of the same record is found the proof of the third ,,t and fourth statements above and ou ^'%r page seven is found the proof of the.? -''. fifth. Moreover, the first statement true because the other four are true, and because Mr. Smith's subsequen •ourse has giv6h us considerable fur- ther evidence.,' Now, since Congressional Rerord"h\r:K^i can not be questioned, the charges must be regarded as proved. Anyone^,. may investigate the matter and con firm the Journal's statements. 1*1 Mrs. Turk Moore 'VU- E. D.Cotton 'V'ti'-Zp'
