Oct. 16, 1920: Portales, N.M., Oct. 16 — Judge Richard H. Hanna, who addressed a meeting here last night, denounced as the crowning piece of political rottenness the uses which desperate Republican bosses are making of two articles which recently appeared in the Portales “Journal.” One of the articles was a bitter attack upon the Spanish-American people and the other was an equally violent attack upon the Roman Catholic church.

Judge Hanna declared the articles were utterly without excuse except as part of a carefully planned Republican propaganda.

... He said the Spanish-American people have no better friend in the state than he. “They were in this country,” he declared, “before the Anglo-Americans came here, and I always have recognized their rights as equal to those of Anglo-Americans in all respects. ...”
