"The congressional executive com mittee met at Franklin on the 9th for the purpose of naming a day and pre scribing rules for the congressional primary election. I appeared oefore this committee and called their atten tion that it had been the custom to have the primary on the day of the August election, and that it had never been held sooner than that date. I also called their attention that my du ties as a member of congress and as chairman of the great committee on naval affairs, imperatively demanded rry constant presence In Washington and constant attention to the dis charge of the duties, and that my du ties v ere such that I could not post pone them nor neglect them without being false to the congress an! to my people and recreant to my official position.

I said to the com .nittee, and I now reaffirm, that 1 will not desert my post of duty nor voluntarily be false to the trust con filed in me, and 'that in a choice be tween being false to my present duty or sacrificing my personal ambitions for future preferment, I shall remain at my place of duty. "But the committee ignored the fixed and uniform custom of the past pad brushed aside every consHera lion which I had suggested, and set tho primary for April 27, at a time when they knew I could not and would not have opportunity to appear lieforo the people and render to them, face tc face, an account of my stew ardship.1 Heretofore, it nas Deen the un broken custom to keep state and na tional politics separate, and while we hive in Tennessee an unhappy divi sion over state matters, which has torn the party asunder, we have hap pily up to the present time kept these local divisions and strife out of na tional politics. But the committee ig noring the consideration of the main tenance of harmony in national poli tics, tied the congressional primary oato the state primary and requires that every voter in the congressional primary shall obligate himself to tup port all the nominees of the state primary, when the committee well knew that there were many thous ands of democrats who, because of tie division oer state and local pol itics, would not participate in the con gressional primary; and by thi3 ac tion the committee has disfranchised taourunds of democrats from partici pation in the congressional primary. Instead of promoting harmony, the committee, by its action, has infused the discord "and turmoil existing in str.te politics into congressional poU ti:8, which I sincerely believe is very unfortunate anl is to be deplored. "In tho last congressional primary th,s very committee, by two resolu tions, expressly declared that" the only pledge to be required of a voter in the congressional primary was to support the nominee of that primary, ind Siich has been the unbroken cus tom supported by the wisdom of the party in the past, but by its action j the committee debars from participa tion" m the congressional primary many thousands of democrats simply baceuse there may be a difference up on questions of local and state poli tics. This action of the committee is contrary to the customs of the past md is unfair, unjust, undemocratic, and revolutionary, and is destructive of the best interests of the democrat ic party and subversive of harmony n the party, which we so much de sire; and was an improper injection of disturbances into congressional politics. "I lanot better express the situa tion than to use the language of the whatfnooga Times, one of the strong est regular democratic papers ia the state, in speaking of this actios of the committee, which 'says that it is undertaking to force the people to a primary and the candidates to sub scribe to pledges, action both cafalr, undemocratic and destructive of that harmony which all true American and unselfish denrocrata are striving to bring about in this distraught state. "Committees are necessary to par ty success, and are entitled to the al so long, however, as they are repre sentative of the masses and guaran tee fair play and a square deal to ev ery democrat. When they permit i'lemselveB to become partisans of any one candidate and attempt to give any one person or individual an un fair advantage " over another having oqual rights "before the people they cease to be 'committees' in the sense in which they were elected and be come machines operating against the best interests of the organization, they were chosen to serve and usurp ers of the rights of the people.
