Washington Jane 1. Charging that
Louis F. Post assislar.t secretary of
labor had "perverted sympathr"

iGetieral Pimr told the house conv
bnittee loday that in dehttng with at-
'tempts of '.he government to rid th
'country of (axigeroui aliens Mr. Prat
'had empWyed a "sett w iled and &-
jtocrailo kobstttntlon of Lis own mis-

Mr. Palmer waa testifying before the
rales committee which to Investigat
ing the official conduct of Mr. Post
dn deportation proceedings.
"Br bis habitually tender solicitude
ior social revolutionists and perverted
sympathy Ior the criminal anarchists
of this country" the attorney general
declared Mr. Post has consistently de-
prived the people of their day In
court. In the enforcement of a law
of vital importance to their peace and
safety. By his wholesale jail deliver-
ies and his release of even self-eon-fesaed
anarchists of the worst type
he bas utterly nullified the purpose
of the congress in passing the depor-
tation statute and has set at large
amongst the people the very public
enemies whom It was the desire
and Intention of the congress to be
rid of. He has defied the rnles of
evidence as laid down by our most
responsible courts; has cancelled bun.
dreds of legal warrants Issued by his
department entirely without justifica-
tion and in face of the facts; has
flouVd the judgment of a committee
of the senate which has Investigated
one of the cases before him; be has
shown constant favors to violators
of the law and their attorneys refus-
ing even common courtesy to the de-
partment of Justice which is charge!
with the duty of enforcing the laws
and in order to distract public at-
tention from his obvious failures to
perform his own duty has showered
upon the department of justice a mass
of charges of misconduct in hope
trat he could put this department of
enforcement of the government on the
defensive in the face of criminal en-
emies from whose activities the de-
partment has sought to protect the
government and the people."
Mr. Palmer said .be hoped "It
might never be necessary to indulge
In any criticism of another govern-
ment official" but the "outrageous
and unconstitutional falsehoods" laid
before the committee by Mr. Poet
required definite answers
"It Is not surprising" he added
"that $lr. Post when the opportunity
has presented Itself in an official
way to render a service to those
who advocate force and violence
iihould employ It to the limit. He
has always been sympathetic with
that sort of thing."
In answering Mr. Posts statement
that he had "cancelled deportation
warrants only where facta warranted
such action" Mr. Palmer cited num.
erous individual cases which he
claimed placed the assistant secre
.tary in a position of "passive tolef.
ance and encouragement" of bolshe-
vik! literature and propaganda.
He also submitted records to the
department showing the particular
persons actively identified with the
spread the doctrine of the dictator-
ship of tho proletariat. Mr. Palmer
"Even after we had produced evi-
dence showing the Individual to have
been a member of the communist
party which the secretary of labor
had held to be unlawful."
Mr. Palmer declared Mr. Post had
"become a factor In the revolutionary
plan" but he credited the assistant
with having been led into it "un-
consciously." He said however that
the attitude in which he had pictured
the labor department official was one
(which ante-dated Mr. Post's service
j in the government. Here he quoted
I from editorials written by Mr. Poet
I when he was editor of "The Public"
a magazine which the attorney gen-
. era! called "very radical."
Regarding Mr. Poet's assertion that
I "with ' all the sweeping raids only
j three pistols have been- found" Mr.
j Palmer declared that while the nuin-
ber of guns found in no way IndV
i cated the potential danger of the
i aliens department agents not only
I found scores of them but bombs and
!' other Implements of destruction as
well. He named a dozen cities in
which he said the raids had disclosed
actions of aliens In the use of bombs.
Charges by Jackson H. Ralston
counsel for Mr. Post that the De-
partment of Justice had provocateur
agents In service who were engaged
in fofnlng new communist organisa-
tions against which raids could he
directed were characterized by 'the
I attorney general as "deliberate and
unwsranted falsehoods.'' He said some
gam confidential Information had
joined outlawed organizations but .be
challenged "anybody to show that any
one of the department employes has
evrr organised or has been Instru
mental in carrying out the policies
or program of any radical organlza

IN BLACK-TAN FIGHTS
Chicago June 1. Hearings on the
claims of contesting delegations to
next week's convention continued to-
day to occupy the attention of the
The fighting Florida was first on
the program and next camo the
three-cornered contests from the Dis-
trict of Columbia. A special sub-committee
composed of Committeeman
Warren of Michigan Du Pont of
Delaware and Parson of New York
spent most of the night examining
the law and the 'facts in the Florida
contest and prepared a report on the
claims of the contestants and possibly
a recommendation for a recourse of
action by - tho committee. Tho case
which the committee was called on
to decide was whether there is in
legal effect a republican party in
Florida promised a sense to show
first Indications on the candadicies
of Major General Wood Frank O.
Lowden and Senator Hiram Johnson.
None of tho three contesting dele
gatlons Is pledged but the various
members say that the first or regu-
larly reported delegation beaded by
National Committeeman Bean of
Tampa is favorable to General Wood;
that the second delegation headed by
H. I Anderson of Jacksonville is
favorable to Senator Johnson and that
the third headed by A. L. Church
of Jacksonville Is favorable to the
candidacy of Governor Lowden.
In the District of Columbia con-
tests the issue as to the candidacies
is less clearly defined although tho
Wood leaders are said to be HsNlng
the delegation headed by Frank J.
Mogan as among those upon whom
they would depend In tho convention.
With the Florida contest out of the
way tho national committee faces
tho most acrimonious contest of the
list that from Georgia when an of-
ficially reported delegation headed
by Henry Lincoln Johnson an Atlan.
ta negro is counted in the "Low-
den column" and a contesting dele
gation headed by Charles Adamson
of Cedar Town Is counted In the
Wood column. Both delegations had
figured In the hearings of tho senate
committee in Witlgating ' campaign ex-
penditures. The next contest on tho calendar la
from Louisiana where a regularly re-
ported delegation headed by National
Committeeman Emll Kuntz Is being
opposed by a delegation headed by
Victor Louisel of New Orleans. The
contesting delegation Is listed as
among those favorable to the Wood
candidacy and Frank II. Hitchcock.
The cummitteo does not hope to get
further than tho Louisiana case to-
day. Estimates of the probable dura-
tion of the convention arc as numer-
ous as candidates are various. Somo
confident ones have mado resolu-
tions to remain homo Thursday of tho
'convention woek. The prediction that
a presidential candidate probably will
be nominated on Friday night and a
vice-presidential candidate on Satur-
day seems to be regarded among
most of the politicians as probably
belnj more accurate than any others.
