1853 COURT FIGHT LIKE THEONE NOW Senate Refused To Ratify Nomination of North Member for Court ■ ):iily Knreaii. In The Sir Walter Hotel, Raleigh, iAug. 18 —Coincidentally with the battle over confirmation of Senator Hugo I'.lack as a member of the United Slates Supreme Court, a manuscript tolling how a United States senator from North Carolina was.denied confirmation to the same lofty post has been received in the office of Dr. C. C. Crittenden, secre tary of the State Historical Commis sion. It deals with the rejection of Pres ident Millard Fillmore’s nomination of Senator George E. Badger. Whig from North Carolina, whose confir mation w;is “indefinitely postponed, February 11, 1553. by a one-vote mar gin, 26 to 25. The manuscript, written by Dr. Lawrence A. London, of Chapel Hill, indicates that there is little new un der the sun in the matter of issues. The same reasons for refusal to con firm were advanced then as are be ing advanced now. In 1937 it is con tended that Senator Black has “pre judiced" issues which will come be fore him and that he will interpret the Constitution so as to give all power to the Federal government. In 1852, according to Dr. London's manuscript, one of the senators said. “As a politician Mr. Badger is distin guished for his extreme Federal no tions, which lead him always to inter pret the Constitution so as to derogate from the rights of the states and to augment the powers of the general government.” Typical of the more abusive com ment, such as has been heard in re marks that Black's nomination is an “insult,” one newspaper opposing Sen ator Badger referred to his as a “green-gilled Federalist.” And the Wilmington journal of that day remarked that while Mr. Badger ought not to be confirmed, it almost wished he could be so as to get rid of him in North Carolina. The error in Karl Marx’s messianic ideal of the proletariat is that the “working man’ can quite easily him self become “bourgeous” and tyranni cal. Hot Weather is Here— Beware of Biliousness!

The peculiar feature of-lhe situa tion is that President Roosevelt and Secretary Hull have been unprecedent edlv successful in their North Amer ican contacts with our South Amer ican brethren heretofore. In the past a kind of northern brusqueness has characterized our dealings with our southern neighbors, and brusqueness, of all things, is what the Latin American resents. Tbe Roosevelt administration seems to have sensed this, and has been at pains to be elaborately polite. This policy has been wonderfully success ful. South America had begun to warm to us as never before. Now we undoubtedly arc in danger of having undone much of our pre vious good work.

Brazil cannot cork up the Argen tine, either, without outside help. It has not the resources to do so, but it might be able to do so with a few leased North American warships. These warships are described, in deed, as “obsolete.” v Nevertheless, a warship which, ac cording to North American standards, is termed “obsolete,” may be pretty formidable, according to Latin Amer ican standards. Oh, yes, lease, if effected, will provide that the leased ships must not be employed in American inter national warfare. Also such ships are to revert to the United States if ever we need them.

After quoting a long portion of the historian’s letter, the President said: “Almost, methinks, I am reading not from Macauley but from a re solution of the United States Cham ber of Commerce, the Liberty League, the National Association of Manufac turers or the editorials written at the behest of som£ well known news paper proprietors.’’ “I conceive it to be true that I am just as strongly in favor of the se curity of property and the mainten ance of order as Lord Macauley x x x x and in this the American people arb with me, too.” He referred at another point to that assertion: “My friends, I am of the firm be lief that th-a nation, by an over whelming majority, supports my op position to the vesting of supreme power in the hands of any class, num erous but select.” “They (Macauley’? the president said, “reject the principle of the greater good for the greater num ber, which is the cornerstone of dem ocratic government.” Under the latter, Mr. Roosevelt said, the “poorest are no longer necessarily the most ignorant part of society.” “Under it property can be secure; under it abuses can end; under it ord er can be maintained —and all of this for the simple cogent reason that to the average of our citizenship can be brought a life of greater opportunity, of greater security, of greater happi ness.” Recounting that in pioneer settle ment “democracy and not feudalism was the rule,” he said: “I fear very much that if certain modern Americans Who protest loud ly their devotion to American ideals were suddenly to be given a compre hensive view of the earliest American colonists and their methods of life and government, they would prompt ly label them socialists. “They would forget that in these pioneer settlements were all the germs of the later American Consti tution.” PRESIDENT GREETED BY ELIZABETH CITY CROWDS Elizabeth City, Aug. 18 (AP) —Pres- ident Roosevelt embarked on a coast guard cutter shortly before 10 a. m.
