Â·WEDNESDAY, JANUARY' 26, 1938. THE DAILY .COURIER. CQNNEI.LSVIM.E. PA. PAGE THREE Pinchot Chairman Berates Venango Leader as Unfair PHILADELPHIA, Jan. 28.--P. S. Stahlnccker, chairman at the Pin- chot-for-Govcrnor State Committee today issued the following statement: "In order to correct possible misunderstanding, due to inaccurate information given to the newspapers, I wish to state that the Plnchot-for- Governor State Committee had nothing to do -with the promoting or engineering the meeting oÂ£ 17 Republican county chairmen, held at Oil City, Venango county, on the night oÂ£ .Tuesday, January 25, for the purpose of procuring endorsement for a candidate for the Republican nomination for Governor. Governor Pinchot, being already in the field as a candidate for the gubernatorial nomination, could have no reason for inviting such a combined endorsement, and it is unfair for the several persons responsible for the meeting to leave ground lor the inference that there was any such a purpose. . "The meeting was held in response to an invitation Irom W. R. Borland, Republican county chairman of Venango county, who announced in advance that the meeting would endorse the candidacy of Judge Arthur James. No other question was ever before the meeting except two motions, one that Judge James be endorsed and the other that he be rc- Â·quested to become a candidate for the gubernatorial nomination. Both motions were defeated. At no time was there a motion that Governor Pinchot be endorsed, because the meeting was adjourned as soon as the motions in behalf of James had Â· been turned down. Later, however, nine of the participants in the meeting met at the Arlington Hotel and let it be known that they had joined in the James movement because the Pinchot sentiment in their counties was so overwhelming. "As a matter of fact, only five of the chairmen present, and this included Mr. Borland, were actually in favor of endorsing Judge James, or asking him to run. In other words, the meeting was called for the avowed purpose of procuring an anti-Pinchot declaration and it fell flat. In his original announcement us to what the purpose of the meeting was, Mr. Borland vigorously asserted that "20 Republican county chairmen would endorse James. But after the meeting was over, he carefully refrained from mentioning what had been his original purpose, nnd gave ground for the impression that it had been called in the interest of Governor Pinchot. j "Much has been said and written! to the effect that if there is to be a ' contest over the Republican nomina 7 tion for Governor, it ought to be conducted in a spirit of .fair play, in order that the battle, if any, shall not leave scars upon the party organization after the primary. I think it is perfectly evident to-every Republican voter in the State that the comparatively small group \vhich is not for Pinchot has been doing its utmost to give him the greatest amount of unfair play that it possibly can. And nothing could be more unfair than to call a meeting for the purpose of stampeding Republican county chairmen against Pinchot, and then, upon its failure, to disseminate the idea that it was called in his interest. "Calling the meeting was a great mistake upon the part of Mr. Borland. Every Republican county committee is entitled to home rule, and should act independently in an effort to express the sentiments of all of its members. What happened in the Borland meeting shows that 12 of the 17 county chairmen realized that they were not in position to commit their organizations to any candidate of their own or Mr. Borlands choos- fcjg. As a matter of fact, every county that was represented in the meeting will be carried by Governor Pinchot, including Venango county where Mr. Borland is county chairman. What Mr. Borland attempted to do was to stem the tide of Pinchot sentiment. His failure ought to convince every responsible Republican leader in the State that what Mr. Borland tried to do cannot be done. "The Republican workers and the Republican voters have got tired losing behind candidates who are unacceptable to the voters. They know that Pinchot can lead them to victory, and they arc for him. Under the circumstances, it is poor party management to stir up party animosities by resorting to such tactics as have been employed in regard to this Oil City meeting."
