The following editorial from The Washington Times of May
the 6th tells the story:
THE OLD NORTH STATE
The shiftings of political authority which go with changes of
p :rty and peisonnel, bring some interesting situations. Just now
North Carolina commands attention because of the probabi'ity that
in the next Congress she will number in her delegation the leaders
of both kouses. In the past the 0!d North State has more than
once been in commanding position, but never has her representa
tion held so many posts of first-rate importance as it is likely to
ccunt in ihe next session.
In the first place, Senator Simmons is chairman of the Com
mittee on Finance, which deals with tariff and revenue problems.
It is always a committee of the very first rank. Despite that one
large section of its authority was taken from it when the Commit
tee on Banking and Currency was created, it is probably the most;
distinguished committee of the upper body. Simmons will continue
The corresponding committee in the House, that on Ways and
Means, is now headed by Mr. Underwood. He will move to the
Senate, and Mr. Kitchen of Noith Carolina will be leader of the
majority assuming that the Democrats retain the control, which
seems altogether probable and chairman of Ways and Means.
Tnis chairmanship carries not only the leadership and the dominat
hg place in revenue matters, but also the function of directing the
highly important business of selecting the House committees.
The present chairman of the House Judiciary Committee, Mr.
Clayton of Alabama, is retiring to assume a judicial post, and the
succession will fall by seniority as well as by merit to Mr. Webb of
North Carolina. No committee has more to do with framing legis
lation and determining rolicie, in the present era, than that on
Judiciary, the preat law committee, in a way the supreme court of
the House. Alabama gives way at two very important points to
Tne Senate Judiciary chaitman is Mr. Culberson of Texas, who
is seriously ill and very possibly will not attempt to resume his du
ties in another session. Should he vacate the Judiciary chairman
ship in the upper house, it would go by seniority to Senator Over
man of North Carolina. Thus the North Carolina delegation would
hold the leadership of the House, and the chairmanship of what'
many regard as the two most important committees in both houses.
It is decidedly a notable coincidence, and it testifies anew to the
wisdom of that policy which a number of States have followed, of
keeping their delegations long enough in service to let them rise to
