$1.50 A YEAi VOL. 23. No. 48 GAINESBORO. TENN., THURSDAY. NOV. 17 , 1921 DEMOCRATS OF NAT ION ENTH US AT IC Leaders Pleased Over Select ion of Judge Hull. Washington, D. C. Nov. 12. -(Special.) Harmony 'and en thusiasm prevail in the Demo cratic national organization over the election of Cordell Hull as chairman of the Democratic nat ional committee, following the voluntary retirement of Chair man George White. Party leaders are unanimous In approval and declare that in Charman Hull the party has the greatest possible individual asset and constructive leadership, and that this election is especially appropriate at this time, when taxation and other economic matters are outstanding issues and when the Republican party is leaderless and without a pro gram. They point out that his election not only produces com plete harmony within the organi zation, but that' it will tend to harmonize and co-ordinate the various elements in the rank and file, resulting in party solidarity. so necessary to the, successful conduct of political campaigns. What follows may be regarded generally as the Democratic esti mate of Chairman Hull: the statements of facts herein is a matter of official record: Perhaps no other available . Democrat could have been select ed Jo direct the national organi zation who would be so widely approved by the financial, indus trial commerical and genera) business world as Mr. Hull. For fourteen years he has been in a conspicuous factor in legislation touching the business life of the nation, and on all questions of financial, commercial and economic affairs he has always been considered practical and fair by all legitimate classes of business. As author of the Income tax law, declared constitutional and upheld generally by the1 Suprmc Court, tho Federal inheritance av lour lorrfelofirvn f A afahillTA the value of liberty bonds and of much of the reconstruction - leg islation following the war, Judge Hull has left indelible and valu able contributions upon the Fed eral statutes. In connection with the fram ing and handling of legislation since the Democratic party came into power in 1912, Judge Hull has come in contact with all classes of business men through out the country. In 1917 he presided over the board in the treasury department which pre- to make the war revenue act more equitable and efficient in its administration, eliminating technical and harsh construction, thus preventing confusion among officials and hardships to the tax payer. Many of these saving regulations were incorporated in the revenue act of 1918. ' ALW A X a riUAJlVLOOl v r As a politician and as a nation ral legislator Judge Hull has been an extremist, but .always a crogrsssive. He has always taken into account the social and moral as well as the .material welfare of the nation.. 2n his vote and in his bublic utterances he has never express ed any class or sectional bias. In his long career in congress Judge HuU had not only the re Epect and confidence of his party colleagues but of the Republicans as well. A prominent Republi can congressman recently said to the writer that, of all the members who were not re-elected at the last election, none was so seriously missed on both sides of the house as Judge Hull. "Whenever he spoke," con tinued this member, "we Re bublicans all sat up and listened and we took heed, for he always held the view that taxation, ,the tariff and economic legislation generally were matters that never should be dealt with in a partisan spirit, but should be considered upon a scientific basis for the general welafre of the government and the people alike." Perhaps no finer tribute in epitome could be paid the new chairman than was paid him by Senator Glass, who placed him in nonination: GLASS' TRIBUTE. . "He is one of the wisest and soundest of Democrats, a man of almost unerring judgement, a man of great patience and cour age, a man of admirable poise and above;all a Democrat ground ed in the fundamental principles of his party in which in all of my observations I have never known him to deviate a hair's breadth." An additional tribute was paid him by the Democratic members of the present house in resolu tions passed on the day following his election as chairman, which after 'citing his partriotism, statesmanship, knowledge of political history and politics, and his elements of .leadership, con tained the following: "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 confi dence in the success of his leader ship, we pledge to him, as to our fellow Democrats throughout the nation, our united support" The universal characfer of Judge Hull's mind was effective ly displayed in a recent article from his pen on the "Economic Consequences of the Defeat of the Peace Treaty," widely, pub lished in the leading papers of the country and incorporated in the congreasional record. In this great contribution to post war literature, citing an economic loss of $40,000,000, as one of the results, a veritable cyclopedia of statistics and logically deduced facts, he displayed a grasp and understanding not only of economic conditions and princi ples as they exist in this country, but as they exist and are related to the world at large. . EQUIPMENT FOR WORK. His equipment for the practi cal work of politics has been tested and proved as a member of the excutive committee and as a participant in congressional and presidential campaigns. Begining his public life as a member of the Tennessee legisla ture, he was later elected Judge of the Fifth Judicial district of Tenness,ee, followded by his election to congress from the Fourth district in 1906 and his re-election to each succeeding congress except the present one. . In the last campaign he un selfishly gave his services to other congressional districts than his own.. He . served in the Spanish American war as . captain of company II. Fourth Tennessee regiment, with the same modesty and fidelity as in every other position to which he has been called. As a state legislator, as a r- , . ... pj 'j-.n MiHioii'Doliars aYear: To bring before tha country In vUutl form the vaat problem It It helping to cotve, the American Red Croee hae prepared for ita Annual Roll Call, Nov. 11 to 24, a poster showing how rather than diminishing the total of World War veterans entitled to Federal aid continues to grow.

There is every evidence already that he is going to have the hearty co-operation of members of the national committee and party leaders throughout the country and that the rank and file of the party will follow his militant leadership in the true militant spirit of democracy.
