The Sandusky Star Journal (Newspaper) - July 31, 1911, Sandusky, Ohio SAN STA THE HOME PAPER FORTY-FOURTH SANDUSKY, OHIO, MONDAY, JULY 31, 1911, Gen. Sherwood Charges Inter- ests of Veterans Were Po- litically Bartered. EDITOR Wl'ELROY AND ANDERSON ASSAILED Fostoria Congressman Replies Warmly Today, Defending Course He Has Taken, WASHINGTON, July a result of the statements and of Gen. I. R. Sherwood, of the Toledo district, a congression- al investigation of pensions and pension legislation is possible. Once denied the right to make a statement on the floor, Gen. Sher- wood, foilowng Vie action of the house democrats in caucus in en- dorsing his bill and deciding to place it on the calendar, thus dis- placing the Anderson bill, secured the floor late Saturday and made a bitter attack upon John Mc- Elroy, editor of the National Tribune, and candidate for grand commander of the G. A. R. He also paid his respects to Carl An- derson, of the Sandusky district, in no' uncertain terms. Anderson was, not present. LAST EDITION NUMBER251, JAPANESE ADMIRAL SOON TO VISIT LAUDS AMERICA IN LONDON INTERVIEW THE WEATHER Following up Jjghtins man, a bluff, rough-andjjgad Representative Adair, of Indiana, a member of the committee on invalid pensions of which Gen. Sherwood is chairman, also made an attack upon Representative Anderson. Aaaif cEarged that the Anderson bill was put forward because it was known it could not pass the senate and would therefore block all pension legislation. Anderson today, a- rising in the house to a question of personal privelege, made a torrid comij back to. articles in several Ohio newspapers purporting to be in- terviews with General Sherwood auth- or of the Sherwood pension bill which aceussd Anderson of sneaking his bill oa the calendar and of "doing it in an underhanded manner." Anderson, stated that the charges were false and unwarranted, 'He read a ietter" "from General Burdette, chairman of the national pension committee of the G. A. R. which denied that Burdette had given the approval of the G. A. R. 1o the Sherwood bill as claimed in the interview and stated that while he had always admired Representative Sherwood he felt that in justice to himself, he must deny, the attack nifje upon him. "I am a democrat and proud' of said Representative Anderson, "but I am not proud of all democrats. 1 fcave been accused of sneaking my bill en the calendar but I never played the cotton foot and hid- in the cloak rooms while a pension bill was being voted upon." Representative Garrett of Tennessee made A point of order against Ander- son, in reply to which Anderson offer- ed clippings from a numbei of news- papers speaking of him in derogatory Isrms. He found however, that he did not have all the papers with him find so the case went over until tomor- row. Sherwood's was sensational. He declared that' McElroy did not want a pension bill passed as it would leave him nothing to agitate in liis paper and so he would lose ground. He-.charged that McElroy had sold out the influence of his paper to the Ohio national republican com- mittees. In substantiation of his charges, Gen. Sherwoo'd put into the record testimony in the shape of hundreds of Tues- prob- 72 de- e 68 Forecast: Fair tonight, day increasing cloudiness ably followed by showers. Temperature at 7 a. m., grees!

That "We are advertised by our loving is again being dem- onstrated by the course, of the morning organ of the special interests. Devoting five-sixths of its political column to democratic affairs, and to an attempt to show that republicans will support a certain (iirmocrat rather than their the organ gives the Star- Journal credit for political power greater than we would modestly claim. The object, of course, is plain. The organ of the "interests" would stampede- democrats to one candidate whom it favors and whom it would support rather than the candidate of its own party. It desires above all else the defeat of JIavor Lehrer. The Star-Journal dees not care to whom the morning organ gives its support, so far as political lines go. It may take up the cause of republican, democrat or socialist as it pleases. Every newspaper and every, dtizen has the same right. Political and partisan lines will be largely disregarded in the municipal campaign. For the benefit of some who may be worrying, however, we would say this: THE STAR-JOrRNAL HAS NO CANDIDATE FOR MAYOR. Any statement, published or otherwise, to the effect that the Star- Journal will s-upport or net support any certain candidate, or that anyone connected with the management of this paper has made such a statement, is absolutely false. When the lists are full, we shall look to the men ana platforms. The man who promises the best and most progressive administration of affairs, the MAX who appears best fitted for the office, who gives assurance of a square deal to all and favoritism to no "interest" and v.-ho is the least allied to any short, a man who gives promise of being a real mayor for all the people, will have the Star- Journal's support. We shall do all we can to elect such a man. I Many Places to Be Filled, How- ever, If Project Is Car- ried Out.
