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
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
Typical of the more abusive com

“insult,” one newspaper opposing Sen
ator Badger referred to his as a
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.

Why It Is Surprising.
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.

but not even all of Brazil. n ,
