THE WASHINGTON TIMES, TUESDAY, NOVEMBER 19, 1912.
Prospective Leader of Sen
ate Has Number of Sug
"L. gestions Made.
Texas Lawyer Investigating
Warrant in Oil Trust
.Senator Qoro of Oklahoma, In charge
f organization through the campaign
for the Democratic national committee,
close friend of Wilson and projective
Senate leader, has turned his attention
'O the question of campaign contribu
tions and will introduce u bill which
will provide that tho Government shall
bear the cost of Presidential and Con
Senator Gore, like many others, has
been shocked at some of the reflations
before the Senate commltteo of which
Senator Clapp Is chairman. hTo enor
mous siie of some of the campaign funds
f-nd the sources of aomo of the contil
buttons are things he cannot approve
and hu believes It Imperative Congress
should undertake legislation.
Inasmuch as the Idea of tho Govern
Went bearing the coit of campaigns
has been advocated by many, tho hill
which Senator Gore Is working on and
which he will Introduce enrly the com
ing session promises to be widely and
Regulate By Vote.
Tho tentatlvu plan of Senator Gore
to base the amount of the campaign
funds for each party on the number of
voters at the last preceding general
election. In a Presidential campaign,
he would have the allowance made by
the Federal Government IB rents pel
voter. In a Congressional campaign,
he would havo the allowance 10 cents
per voter. Just how ninth this would
mean in Government appropriations for
the next Presidential campaign can only
be roughly calculated Senator Gore,
figures It would mean something like
tl.000.0O for the Democrats, to.l) lor
the Progressive party and 5"0lil for
tho Republicans. He calculates that
the entire cost o' a Presidential cam
paign for all pa! ties, Democrat, Ho
publican. Progressive, Socialist, Pro
hibitions, and all others that may
hapen along, would not exceed j;,5"0.(O0
In add'tlon to this, Senator Ooie pro
poses that the chairman of ench na
tional committee be given a frank which
he can use within certain prescribed
limits In sending out campaign litera
ture through tho malls, free of charge.
This would solve the problem of how
to get campaign literature to the votirs.
Wants Government to Pay.
William Jennings Bryan Is a believer
In the plan of having tho Government
pay the campaign expenses. It Is known!
there Is strong support for the Idea In
President Taft's Cabinet Colonel Itoose
vclt Is friendly to some effective plan of
having the Government meet tho cam
Under the Senator Gore, plan. Individ
ual contributions would be prohibited.
Tho country would hear no more of cor
Senator Gore thinks the plan of having'
a vast number of small contributors Is
much preferablo to the plan of having
n small number of big contributors.
Still, he considers that the plan of hav
ing the Government bear the cxpinso
would bo better. While some or tho
IDemocrata In Congress will support the
Goro plan, or onn llko It, others uru
averse to It, They put their opposition
on the ground that for the Government
to bear tne cost vvouia lessen tnn inter
est felt by the voters In politics.
Numerous details In the bill will have
to bo worked out and threshtd out In
committee with care. Just how to ap
portion the funds in a Congressional
election among the various districts Is
not easy The ch'ef trouble here comes
In those districts where the sltu.Ulun I
one-sided, and there li no real need fur
. . funds. Many such district-) ore found
' In tho South, where the Ilepubl rnn voto
is so weak In some Instances as to be
negligible, and where a Democratic
nomination for Congress Is the nulvu
lent of an election. Some way will have
to be found to prevent useless expend'
tures In such districts If the proposed
legislation, or legislation akin to It, Is ,

cleans like magic
Gold Dust is more
than soap does more
than soap. Soap merely
cleans; Gold Dust gets
under the surface, kills
every germ, washes out
every impurity and
sterilizes everything it
It is a sanitary cleanser
which cleans quicker and
better than anything else,
and saves the housewife the
toil of rubbing and scrubbing.
Gold Dust does all the hard
part of the work you
merely assist it.
