Jonas Talked And
Then Talked Again
Said Things, Then Squirmed and
Hedged. Was Substantial
Without a record vote the sen
ate of he United States on last
Wednesday refused to “advise and
consent” to the appointment of Mr.
Charles A. Jdnas as U. s. district
attorney for this district.
Mr. Jonaa has made himself a
rlctim of loose talk. And the fact
that he had talked so loosely, born
In what he said originally, and In
his explanation of it before the
senate committee, ljdged in the
minds of at least some, senators the
belief that he is not a man of such
equitable temper as to be best fit
ted for an important office.
The idea that Mr. Jonas was de
feated on the ground that he was
personally obnoxious to Senator
Bailey in the sense which that term
is generally understood, Is wholly
untrue. Senator Bailey stated to
the senate in reply to a question
point blank from Senator Reed of
Pennsylvania, that Mr. Jonas was
personally obnoxious Decause of the
slanderous things he hud said about
the courts of North Carolina. And
on this explanation Senator Reed.
Republican, stated that he would
vote against Jonas
Senator Norris of Nebraska took
the ground that if Mr Jonas’ pro
testations of sympatny for honest
elections had been sircere. he
would not have rushed into the
j newspapers and labeled the Nye in
vestigating committee (insinuating
that It had been bought i when that
i committee came to North Carolina
! In the interest of honest elections.
; And in the investigation before the
j committee Jonas made such ail ex
hibition of himself on that score
[that his cause was injured. Among
other tilings he' admitted that he
hud libelled the senate committee
(that is admitted that he had
said the things which the sena
ators considered libelous) and when
he made his attack he did not know
what the duty of that committee
was and was ignorant of the law
under which It was operating. And
Senator Bailey said on the floor, ol
the senate that while Jonas had de
nied that he knew what the law was
hp subsequently said twice that he
did know. ,
There was no charge that Mr.
Jonas Is not strictly an upright
and honest man in all his personal
relations, a thing to which most of
those writing or appearing in his
behalf largely confined their re
marks to, He was turned down be
cause of evidence that he was so
partisan and rash a man In his pub
lic utterances that he came within
the reasonable definition of what
may be considered obnoxious and
objectionable to the senator# from
North Carolina who opposed his
A careful reading of the record
in the senate must convince any
one that Mr. Jonas got about what
could reasonably be expected. Mr.
Jonas has been one of the most,
vtolent talkers about corruption In
North Carolina and when called to
book he so hedged and backfired
that the senate was not favorably
impressed by his course And. too,
there was his statement made to
H. E. C. Bryant that the Pritchard
contest was his answer to Senator
Morrison's first request that he be
not confirmed, Mr. Jonas at first
denied this statement and then
hedged on It like he had hedged
about his remarks about Senator
Nye. Therefore, at least some of
the senators must have concluded
that Mr. Jonas was Interested In
the Pritchard contest as a matter
of revenge and political manipula
The sum of the matter seems to
be that Mr. Jonas fell like so many
others fall, as a result of too much
prosperity. On being elected to
congress in-1928, he misread the
signs. He must have decided that
he was more ot an IT than he
thought he Nvas. He was caught in
tire whirl of the timss when Demo
cratic p'rospects were in a low ebb
In North Carolina and when it was
highly fashionable to talk about
how mean the demmies are. He
went too far. He was not willing to
stop with damning the Demwrats
of tho state but took a far Journey
and damned a Republican comml
tee sent down by a .Republican sen
ate. At any rate, Mr. Jonas has
been trimmed nicely and no doubt
with substantial Justice.

Col. Freeman, War Vet, Will Make
Keynote Speech At State Convention
Governor Gardner Makes Selection
After Conferring- With Chair
Raleigh, April 6.—Colonel George
K. Freeman. Goldsboro lawyer and
ex-commander of the American le
gion for North Carolina, will make
the Democratic keynote speech here
June 16 when the state convention
Governor Gardner conferred with
State Chairman O. M. Mull Mon
day and then announced that Colo
nel Freeman will be jthe temporary’
chairman, which honor carries with
It the duty to make the kevnote
speech. Some of these addresses
have made political history *and
some of them of course never ’have
been heard three feet from the
speaker’s stand, nor read, though
printed in full In the papers. But
the keynoter often Is the most Im
portant orator of the whole cam
paign year. There aevdr Is any
doubt that the honor of speaking
the word In season Is a great one.
The selection of Colonel Freeman
Is a dauble-barreled distinction. Me
Is the-first of the American legion
naires to be so exalted. There were
45 of these soldiers In the late gen
eral assembly, but until State Treas
urer John P. Stedman was called to
among the legion who lias been dec
orated with a constitutional office.

bor, and Dan C. Boney, commis
1 si oner of insurance hold state of
fices, and many soldiers are employ
led in the department. But party
! policy has not beeh before inter
i preted by a legionnaire.
Colonel Freeman is mt identi
fied with the administration. There
Is no- connection with it direct or
indirect. But Governor Gardner is
very happy to have so fine and mil
itant a young Democrat to speak for
[the party and the record that It
has made through the first. C2 years
of the new century.
! The keynoter served with great
credit overseas. For 1929 and 1930
he was chosen state comjnander of
the American legion and he has been
a member of the national executive
committee of the American legion.
He ha* been chairman of the Dem
ocratic executive committee of
Wayne county and was a delegate
to the national Democratic consyn*
non In 1924.

Air Cooling For
Long Trip Trains;
Extra Fares Stop
I’ullim>n System Of Temperature
Control Ordered For The
Some of the principal Eastern
railroad lines, besides reducing sche
dules of their crack flyers and
abolishing extra fares on. many
others, are planning other vigorous
steps (ti an attempt to halt the de
cline of passenger travel.
Added comforts and conveniences
for the public seem to be the Key
note of the plans the railroad man
agers have worked out, some of
which will become apparent in early
summer. Chief among them are
plans for air-cooling and condition
ing passenger coaches and sleeping
The apparent reluctance of the
railroad managers to go Into the
air-cooling and conditioning of
whole trains on a" large scale has
been due to their feeling that the
application of air-cooling systems
to railroad trains, as has success
fully been done for short distances
by the Baltimore and Ohio be
tween New Yok and Washington,
had not reached a stage of perfec
tion where the large initial expen
ditures were warranted for long
distance trains of sleeping, cats.
The Pullman Company, after ex
haustive testing ana research,
seems to have developed a system
of cooling sleeping cars, chair cars
and coaches which meets the views
of Jhe mechanical departments of
the railroads, and it has sufficient
orders on fiand to cause it to put
500 men at work in its shops at
Pullman. 111. The shops practically
have been closed for two years.
Aiinougn coonng systems nave
been applied to individual dining
cars and to chair cars, and Pullman
has on hand orders for cooling a
score of diners for some of the
Western lines which operate across
the desert, the first order for equip
ping a solid sleeping car train with
the Pullman air-cooling and con
ditioning system was placed early
this year by the Chesapeake &
Ohio, for its new train, the George
Washington, which will be put In
operation April 24.
The system which is being in
stalled on the George Washington
