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 its leader. 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 North Carolina. 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 commanding places.
