United States District Attorney IIol-
ton spent yesterday afternoon here re
turning home to Winston from Wash
ington, where he had been to answer
the charges filed against him by -Congressman
Blackburn before a special
Senate committee appointed to investi
gate them.' The unanimous recommend
iation of this committee that Holton's
nomination by the President be con
firmed and the fall down of those fight
ing his confirmation is row a matter of
historjC , .. :' ' '' -
Holton is a curious, man, While ap
pearing iron nerved.it has been well
known that he was greatly troubled
over the fight made on Jiim," touching
as it did, hia real y most sensitive point
pride in the conduct of his office and
hope for an endorsement of his record
is a capable and fearless official. The
ighton him began three years ago
when he first bearded in their den the
strongly entrenched forces of revenue
officials and distillers by indictm and
prosecuting to conviction and sentence,
Young Sprinkle and Angle of Rocking
ham and Cii8e.l rounties, revealing a
system of "graft," wnich ramified the
revenue circle f. seven States, and
came so uricomfrta''ly near depart
ment officer, that th term "reaching
higher u" na first used by this cor
refrpondent. In hia speech in defense
of the defendants in that case, Judge
Bynum did not ht-iate to charge that
it was imp: s ible for defendants to be
guilty of offens- charged "without
the active connivancp or criminal negli
gence of officers higher up in the rev
enue service." Holton did not stop
with that case but went on higher up;
until instead of storckvpeers and guag
ers and distillers alone being indicted,
he went "higher u" and.took in the
deputy collectors. And like a snow
ball gathering weight by every' turn,
the fight on Holton has gathered it tei -sity
by every new indictment, until
there are at least twenty-five promi
nent attorneys alone, now interested in
seeing that he be not confirmed, in
duty to clients whose fees they had
taken to defend them' against indict
ments, which only Holton could with
experience prosecute. - Having left the
distillers, after the Young and Angle
case, and taken a step higher up by
going for the store-keepers and guag
ers, and from them taking a higher
step and going for the deputy collec
tors, the interest.ng question now is,
"1 the man crazy enough to attempt
to "go up" still and bag bigger than
even a Congressman'"
Today this man of iron nerve and
heart showed deep feeling as well as
! the delight of a school boy over the re
lief from the heavy Btrain. What
sivmod to upset him worse, was the ev-
li lwe he had had from all over the
, St ite from men in every cull'ng of the
I h lief that jn the contest it was right,
