Contributions Asked for Success of
Believing that small contribu?
tions at this time will be mort} help?
ful than larger amounts later on, and
mindful of the fact that the Demo?
cratic party has pledged itself not
to accept funds (rom corporations
and trusts. Woodrow Wilson's
managers have called upon Demo?
crats throughout the country to
assist in the election of the man
nominated by the Baltimore conven?
tion. They have naturally turned
to the newspapers to engineer the
nova merit in the various cities
and States. Thedollais and dimes
which trill come from those people
who an- anxious to see a Democratic
President elected will be collected
in all parts of the country and for?
warded at once to the treasurer of
ibe National Committee to be used in
defraying the expense of the cam?
In this great work Virginia will
do its shares. Kunda are not need?
ed in this or other Southern States,
for the Demivratic majority is so
big that tabors is never ?ny danger
of Republican gains?certainly noae
this year. But fund*, are needed
elsewhere, and the dollars which
are sent from Virginia?the birth
State of tbe nominee?will help to
enlighten the voters in the East and
West and purnu.de them to the
Democratic way of thinking by
methods which are legitimate and
above reproach. There will be no
vote buying. But Mr. Wilson and
other speakers must go into Repub?
lican States; the expense will be
heavy, though the hope of reward
will bis amoly worth it, and the only
danger of defeat lies in a slim treas?
ury and lacie of campaign funds.
Democrats wlmdeclared four years
ago and eight years ago that the
party ticket would win without
sincerely believing it are convinced
now of Wilson's election. But as
stated, they know that this might
not be possible without money.
So the party leaders see the need of
it, and the newspapers must be the
agents to call for it, collect it ana
send it on.
Virginia Progressives Yesterday In
Roanoke Va.. July 30.?After
raming delegates te tbe Chicago
sonvention, adopting a "Pro?
gressive" platform, naming anexec
utive committee, the Virginia Pro
gressive party adjourned its first
con vt-ntion or conference here to?
night at DM0 o'clock. The meeting
was full of intense fervor and ser?
iousness of purpose, but entirely
aevoid of friction, fightor sensation.
The tirst meeting of tbe Progressives
in Virginia will go down in history
as tbe most harmonious State politi
cal gathering ever assembled in
The platform, adopted without op
position, was entirely in accordance
with the sentiments and principles
outlined by Theodore Itoosevelt,
the father of the "Dull Moose"
party, lt declares for the initia?
tive, referendum and recall, for
legalized primaries, fur the aboli?
tion of the fee system, for adequate
pensions for the Confederate soldier
?nd his widow, for the principle of
home rule or tha right ot the major?
ity of the qualified voters to tix'.tbe
form of eity or country government.
The suffrage of women was an?
other plank in the platform that was
adopted without opposition.
Thomas Ixie Moore of Roanoke
was elected State chairman of thei
party. Delegates at large and dis?
trict delegates were elected to the
Chicago Convention. The delegates
from the Tenth District are E. J.
McCulloch and J. M. Quisenberry.
Mr. McCulloch was made a mem?
ber of tbe excutlve committee.
There were about 300 delegates
present from all sections of the
State, and it was practically a lily

Washington and Lee Not Ashamed
of Mr. Flood
In a recent issue of tbe Richmond
Times-Dispatch tbe following cuui
munication appeared from Mr. Noble
Doak Smithson, the registrar of
Washing ion and I .oe
Editor of The Times-Dispatch:
Sir, ?"Virginia," in a cumin un ica
tion to Tbe Times Dispatch of
Thursday, speaking of tba com?
mendation of Mr. Flood's speech in
the Baltimore convention by Pres?
ident Alderman, of the University
of Virginia, and former President
Denny, of Washington and Lee,
says: "Let us keep the record
straight. Dr. Alderman's eloquence
got $25,000 from Mr. Ryan for tbe
University, and Dr. Denny gotflt),
000 for Washington and Lee.
I^et "Virginia" in turn keep the
record straight. Dr. Denny got
nothing ftom Mr. Ryan for Washing?
ton and Lee. Mr. Ryan's only gift
to this University wasin li?02,when
he subscribed and paid through Mr.
Herbrrt Welsb, of Philadelphia,
$1,000 to the- $100,000 raised as a
fund in memory of the late William
L. Wilson, president of Washing?
ton Lee. On tbe lift of contribu?
tors to that fund were many notable
names, among them George Fost?
er Peabody. Grover Cleveland, the
late Isidor Straus, John D. Rock
feller, Harry T. Howard and Frank
T. Howard, of New Orleans, and
Davis R Francis, of St. Ixwis.
Harvard University also contribut?
ed $2,000 to the fund. Incidentally,
that fund is still intact in the hands
of the University, with an accutn.iia
tion, in addition to the mainten?
ance of the Department of Economics
and Politics, of about $16,000 to
ward tbe erection of a memorial
building to Mr. Wilson.
As for Mr. Flood, he is an alum?
nus of Washington and Lee. and a
distinguished one, and Washington
and Lee has no reason to be asham?
ed of him. N. D. Smitusov
