WHY WILLIAM J. HARRIS IS THE LOGICAL
MAN FOR THE UNITED STATES SENATE
Every reader of this paper knows that The
Reporter has never been partisian in its political
affiliations and alignments. . .We concede to no
one a superior sense of loyalty to personal
(friends; at the same time we have never per
mitted our mere personal likes and dislikes to
influence our support of a candidate for any
important public office
We have never been indentified with the in
ner circles of any of the political factions in this
state, and do not know the lines upon which j
they are built and exist. We believe, however,
that we are sufficiently familiar with the leading
men of the state to discriminate with some in
telligence between their respective merits for
certain positions. At any rate, our opinion as
to these things usually culminates in strong con
victions, which convictions mght to some suggest
that we were really partisan. •
The United States Senatorship is looming
large in Georgia at present, and we believe that
the masses of the people of the state are in an
honest and a receptive frame of mind for the
selction of the man most capable and best fitted
to represent Georgia in the United States Sen
ate. It is apparent that Senator Hardwick’s at
titude toward the Demorcratic Administration
will result in a demand on the part of the people
that he be succeeded by someone in fuller sym
pathy with the Administration, and we believe
that the only thing which can prevent his defeat
is for a multiplicity of candidates to announce
and split up the opposition to him into so many
units as to make the opposition impotent, and it
behooves those who oppose his re-election to
unite upon some strong and available man who
can carry their cause to victory.
To us there is no Georgian who approaches in
point of availability, competency and tested loy
alty William J. Harris —referred to as the Trust
ed Friend and Advisor of the President. More
than this his position as chairman of the Fedral
Trade Commission, which requires that he deal
with potential business interests of the Nation,
has peculiarly fitted him for grappling with the
momentous business issues' which are sure to
evolve out of this world war. So much for his
competency and fitness; now as to his availabil
ity. No public man in Georgia has a more en
gaging personality, no man in Georgia is more
throughly democratic in his ideals or who is so
generally recognized as being a man of the
masses. He has never displayed any plutocra
tic tendencies, but has served modestly and faith
fully in every position to which he has been elec
ted or appointed. Moreover, he belongs to no
particular faction, though no doubt all of the
factions will try to claim him.
Factionalism has been blight of Georgia for
a score of years, and it would be refreshing to
see a man selected for Georgia s highest office
who stands for the good that is in all factions
and for the best interests of the state. William
J. Harris may not become a candidate, but he is
not the character of a man to refuse any service
of the pepole of his state, and already there has
been a remarkably strong sentiment manifested
in his behalf. To place Georgia squarely be
hind the country’s r atest President—Wood
row Wilson,and to prove that the patriotism of
Georgians is superior to mere partisanship and
factionalism, nothing more would be necessary
than the election of “Bill” Harris to the United
States Senate. —Washingon, Ga., Reporer,
