DEMOCRATS OF NAT

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

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

Hull has left indelible and valu
able contributions upon the Fed
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
Perhaps no finer tribute in
epitome could be paid the new
chairman than was paid him by
Senator Glass, who placed him in
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

judge, as a soldier, as a congress
man, as a political leader and as
a man he has always displayed
those qualities which command
respect, inspire confidence and
insure the fealty of his followers.
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

militant leadership in the true
militant spirit of democracy.
