Mr. Chairman, Gentlemen of the Ohio Bar Association, Ladies and Gentlemen, this has been, I think, the most pleasurable incident of my life. I shall not undertake to say that it was altogether unexpected, because that is not true. During this war I came in contact with many citizens of this republic in the City of Washington assisting this government in the prosecution of this war. I think it is only right that I should say to you that the civilian who volunteers to assist this government in time of war is not met with the greatest degree of sympathy. It is also right that I should say to you that it is impossible to make a national military effort without mobilizing, not only" the resources, but the talent of this land. There came to Washington out of this city of Dayton a man whom, while he was engaged in the tremendous task of helping out this government, I never met, but than whom no man in the City of Washington, in my judgment, did morg to win this war. I refer to your fellow-townsman, Colonel Deeds. (Applause.) I had the pleasure of meeting him after this trouble came up, not before. Since that time, also I had the pleasure of meeting another fellow-townsman of yourself, a lawyer, in a professional capacity. The case that your fellow-townsman and lawyer was engaged in was a case which one year ago would most assuredly have resulted adversely, fatally, for an innocent man, an excellent officer of the army. Due to the agitation of this subject of military justice, the War Department has become more careful than it was. The Secretary of War has taken a greater interest in the matter than he did take. The matter of guilt or innocence, of justice or injustice, no longer goes at such more
