He Writes it Letter to1 the Jack-
sonville Metropolis.


Used Unb(c)ming Language.-
Called Opponent a Liar and
Is Sorry for It.
lt'ONTK ll)TI':l J I
Slont. W. N Slhedat, Superinteudent of
I'hblic lunItriction of ilorida, sends The
Jacksonville Metropolis the following for
To the Liditor of the Metropolis:
I .desire through your colutimans to ex-
plaint anda pologize to thle good people of
Florida. At a political speaking at I,.ke
Ilutler la!st Wed iiesila my opponent in
a speech extremely vituperative and de-
nunciatory of tae, broug'it up the Hooker
Washiington incident again though I ex.
posed in the Tiaies-L'nion of January a25th
the base ililrepresentationl of me in that
iwitter, andi publicly chaTged my op.
ponent had resorted to forgery, that is,
had imterpolated into a letter the words
' In the white school auditorium," pub-
lished the same over my signature, and
had spread it by thousands of copies
throughout the State. Though this open
letter has been i.ublished for several
weeks and re-publslhed in several news-
papers, and I have since published a
proposition, that if iay opponent would
produce the original letter and I failed to
prove that the words "In the white school
auditorium" was a forgery I would with-
draw from the race. Neither of which
contmaunications lie has noticed. Again,
though I had repeatedly dentanded that
he produce the original containing the
alleged forgery, yet in his speech that
day after a lengthy tirade of vq-y abu-
sive laaiteuage lie said: "lie lid invite
Booker Washliogton to speak in the
.Gainesv lie white school auditorium, to
tddreas white citiaeus, and to tell county
aupernutendetts how Co educate whit,.
children and I have the letter. "
I intinediately sprang to may feet and
said, "I now demeanel for the tenth time
that you pro.luce that letter right here."
E- reLfite I or mltde Rnme excuse for not
I5ing so, wli.ch so itic-aised mie, as I have
46ela persi-tently and continuously uns.-
er'esentedl ahout this Incident since Feb-
nary, 1933, tht ilit lthe heat of iindign tion
it such unfair procedure. I sald, "If you
fall to do so you are a coward and a liar."

For the. laenguitge useal, I do most hulm-
bly apologlae to the gtla people of the
Ata:e, as I did to the auaaience present
n'ieia I ohtsaiied. te floor, aw'l promise to

Effort to Have a Probing
Committee Appointed.

A Washington special says: The
house of representatives Thursday
again-put itself -on record against any
investlgaUlon of the postofifce depart-
ment. Eight pages of the. postoffi'e
appropriation bill were disAposed of.
The question of an investigation of
the postofflce department was brought
up by Mr. Williams, the m'norlty lead-
er, who proposed an ameniilment pro-
viding for a selection of ilvo members
of the house and thireo senators to
make a complete investigation Into
the alleged frauds in that ldoiniarneat.
He tauntedl the repnblilans for their
failure to order an investigallon, and
said the party was ilpptosed to It.
The chair eiisualiied a point of or-
der by Mr. OversIreot agalinitt tihe
amendment, and when Mr. Williams
appealed, the clia r was ustulaiend 133
to 99.
Before the vote was talken Mr. Wil-
liams appealed to Mr. OversiroeI to
withdraw his point of orler. which
Mr. Overstreet refused to do.
"Then the gentleman has a n perfect-
ly stony heart," said Mr. Willians.
"He stands In between this inveitiga.
tion of- the postoflice department by
congress with his point of order."
Thereupon Mr. Williams appealed
from the decision of tfi chair, which
brought from Mr. Overstreet. an ap-
peal to the house to uphold the chair.
To do otherwise, he said, would ie a
reflection upor the chair and the dig-
nity of the house.
Mr. Williams Inquired: "What does
a miserable little rule of the house
amount to when you consider It Is the
only obstruction lying between you
and a righteousness far greater tIltn
the righteousness of a techiclil doecis-
He declared that the very essence
and soul of good government Is lion-
esty In the public service and econo-
my of public administration
"The only way we can secure hon-
esty In the postoffieo deparltm-nt."
he continued, "is either by thle gen
tleman withdrawing his l olni of or
der or by the house mnrehing over
the point bodily."
He was loudly applaiided lby ins col-
leagues on the democratic side
He Implored Mr. Overstreet to will
draw hil point "to save Ilie country
from saying that rather tbnn have an
Investigation of rottenness, the hoato
will stand i upon a bare Ilitle parlla-
mentary technicality, that atnitonts to
nothing in any citizen's mind." lie
was again applauded.

To my mind, the ballot is simply
one of our many modern labor-sav-
Ing inventions It is the ease t
way. The ballot is nothing but an
improved sledge-hammer, a modern
battering-ram that enables us to
wage the battle of life and obsei ve
its amenities at the same time.
In the tea ysars that women have
been voting in Colorado, I believe
they have done at least five tines
as much as all the rest of the not'-
voting women in the United States
put together; and I base this mod-
esat claim upon the record of our
statute books ns eeaiuperd with.
those of other States. For wxagen

mittee which has beaen sitttig on
the case of federall Judge Swayne,
of Florida, t iW0ihembers have re-
pbrted in favor of impeaching that
riest, the third, against such ac-
tloie The case w ill go to the house
of representatives for action,.after
having been passed ypop by the
full committee, which it seems is
likely to sustain the majority report
of the sub committee, ahd. from the

house will be carried to the senate
for final action. "
It is not our UItention to discuss
tbe cse of. JMudge Swayne, nor con-
lider the weight of- the evidence pro
and con, for such discussion wouIld
be prem ture and scarcely fair until
congress has finally passed up the
evidence in hand.
There is one fact which stands
outit brightly, however, and which
eokipels comment. And that is the
fact that, whether Judge Swayue is
guilty or innocent, if he is put up
on trial by the United States senate
he will be the first federal officer to
have been so impeached since An-
drew Jonuson.
Surely, this is a record of which
the federal bench may well be proud,
It speaks volumes for the aliiflt,
and integrity of the men composing,
that important branch of the jit
Moreover, it is a recordto which
any nation oi the' world miglit
have pointed with just delight.
Our judiciary system is the funda-
tion upon which rests the st1p,.-r-
structure of our civic liberty, n.md
