ATTACK EVOKES REPLY
tclcgate Insist? He Was Not Com
mitted to Any Candidate; State-
meat of Support Denied.
Judge Wallace McCamant, whose
Vote as a delegate in the Chicago
convention has been attacked by Sen
ator Hiram Johnson, has Issued the
lollowlng statement in reply to Sen
ator Johnson's charges, published in
Wednesdays issue of The Oregonian:
"In his latest attack Senator John
son quotes the following sentence
from my article in the voters' pamph
let: 'I have avoided committing my-
leelf to any candidate for the presi
dency In order that I might be in a
better position to support the candi
date who wins out at the Oregon pri
mary.' Senator Johnson says: "This
vii not true."
"The sentence quoted etatee a fact
land the reason for Its existence. The
fact stated is that on April 12 when
1 forwarded my statement to Salem
I had avoided committing myself to
any candidate, for the presidency. If
this statement is not true, wherein is
it false? To what candidate had I
I committed myself? When, where
and how had I pledged myself to him?
Johimon Anked for Evidence.
"Perhaps Senator Johnson would
leay that the statement or fact is true,
I but the reason given is untrue. How
does Senator Johnson know my rea
son for refusing to commit myself to
iny candidate for president? Can he
produce anyone to whom I stated a
"Senator Johnson says I 'made a
I promise publicly and officially to the
people of Oregon." The sentence
quoted is certainly not a promise. An
I antagonist who meant to be fair
would not refer to it as a promise.
I By no proper construction can the
sentence quoted be tortured into a
promise to support Johnson.
"All my promises were to the effect
Ithat I would not support him. Kena-
Itor Johnson says that my statements
to that effect were made privately.
IThey were made to supporters of
I Wood, Ijowden and Hoover and to
the managers of the Wood, Lowden
land Johnson campaigns. By what
llogic can it be maintained that these
(promises should have been violated?
MrDnnald Knew la Defease.
"If I had desired to secure my elec-
Ition as delegate by false pretences,
Johnson's manager is the last person
I to whom I would have communicated
my determination that under no cir
cumstances would 1 vote for John-
Icon. How can my disclosure or my
I position to Sanfield MacDonald be
I reconciled with this charge of bad
Ifaith and deception?
"Senator Johnson was certainly not
(deceived as to my position. For more
than two months prior to the prima
ries his Portland headquarters was
advised of my hostility to his candi-
Idacy. He had every opportunity to
contest my election and he did con
test it. He had a delegate ticket of
I his own on which my name did not

(desired his nomination they would
have elected that ticket. The re
turns demonstrate that 63 per cent
of them did not desire his nomination.
Hia Slogan Is Quoted.
"Sly public commitment to the peo-
Iplc of Oregon is found in my slogan
