added "I hnve the aatlafnctlnn

lah clulni that II had been glvon nut
by nccldont. That la not fair play."
Tackling fltat White's chargoH
dealing with liquor measures Gov-
ernor Smith said them had been "11
dollberato attempt" to show that
"My votos dealt with a far gt enter
number of so-called liquor bllla
than In fact they did" that the In-
tent of many hnd been mlsicprc-
aented and that almost Invniiably
Jtepubllcan loadciH had voted ax ho
did on them.
Hcforrlng to the claim he had
voted to allow saloons within 200
feet of a church or stato xchool
any place on Manhattan Island
south of f9th street he asserted
this was unfair as the bill In ques-
tion applied only to the Hotel
Oothum. which while within 200
feet of a church was peimlttod un-
der couit older to servo liquor to
guests by the device of ranting a
house nutxlilo tho 200-foot limit
having a hotel employe purchiiHo
the liquor In thla houae and then
cany It to tho hotel Itaolf."
"Kalr minded mon" ho said
"Weie confronted with the denlalon
as between a license for tho sale
within the pi million nf the hotel
and the spectacle of bellboys wnlk-
Ing through tho street with cock-
tail ahakera nnd wlno baskets In
"I choso to unil tho hypocrisy of
audi ft proceiluio and In view of
tho high ehnractor of tho hotel 1
wnH ontlioly satisfied that If liquor
wjui to ho consumed within tho
hotel It might Just as well bo sold
Aa to commercialized vice tho
govornor took up his vote against
ft bill Introduced firxt In 191U and
which proposed to rogulnto renting
of rooms In hotola. This monniiro
ho contended woh "Unquestionably
unconstitutional and unworknblo."
All of tho gambling measures re-
ferred to by White had to do with
tace trnck hotting thu governor
an(d oxplalnlng he had votd with
Ciovernoi Hughoa against them b.ut
