Chairman Camden of DsmoGratlc
Campaign Comir,!!: C:i the
Issues ot the Day.
JohnBon N. Camden of Woodford
county, chairman ot tho Democratic
tato campaign committee, in hli
opening address to the conference of
editors of tho Democratic press of
Kentucky, at LouIbtIUo on Saturday,
Sept 28th, spoke as follows:
Gentlemen of the Democratic Press
"I feel extremely honored In harln
sure you of my appreciation of the
compliment that you hare paid us in
Jeavlng your homes and business and
oming; here today to attend this conference.
The occasion that brings us
together for mutual counsel and deliberation
Is, In my Judgment, as
epoch-making as any event In tho history
qt our state.
"Tho Democratic party the party
i tun vm,vm, oiwmcn you eenuemea
re, in a way. the eyes the ears and
certainly the mouthpiece, is on trial
before the world for Its existeice.
Coincident with the life of the
cratic party are our free institutions,
tho perpetuity of our form of govern
ment and the equal opportunity im life
of every child bern undor our flag.
"Upon careful thought and analysis I
think you will agree that this is not
an exaggerated statement, and that
tho fato of the two, the nation and
tho Democratic party, are Inseparably
"I am equally confident that posterity
will accord to jou gentlemen or
the DemoogJIc press of Kentucky a
place In tho Hall of Fame, It not in
bronze, at least In grateful memory
lor the patriotic service that you will
render to jour state and country.
Corporate Contributions Deadly.
"Through your agency our times
Incredible rapidity. It has a direct
bearing upon our environment and '
the conditions that mould our dally
life. The majority of the men and I
women of our land see clearly now
what was only dimly outlined to them I
si few years ago, and to which we I
Tald lit tip hed Wp did rot realize
then as we rto now that every
financed by the incorporated in
terests was in effect a deadly blow to
the development of patriotism In the
"Tho Republican party is responsible
for this condition, for It has been
r vast commercial body out for revenue
only, nnd those Interests which
contributed most liberally to Its success
received In return the largest
measure of protection through the
provisions or its tariff laws. I can
hardly bellee that the corporations
themselves foresaw the results of
their liberal contributions, for I am
sure that no set of men could be
found who with that end in view
bp such deliberate traitors to
Charity and Philanthropy.
"You know, gentlemen, in the light
ef the.present time, even the application
of that sweet word 'charity' is
Tut on a different basis and Is now
called rhilarthrcpy It Is lccognlred
by all that tho mere giving hurts and
crlprles the recipient. Instead of
bclplng and strengthening, It weakens
and destroys character.
"Philanthropy is the science of helping
the unfortunate to help
It Is an odious thought to the
.American people to take away an individual's
self-respect. When the national
mind comes to the low level of
tolerating that thought we will have
Jost our magnificent manhood, which
is the crowning triumph of this century
nnd of our country.
Democracy Not Charity.
"When we now come to think asout
it the Democratic party does aat
-want its campaign financed either ea
charitable or on a philanthroplcal
basis. You gentlemen of the press
can make It orplpr for tho district,
county and pro!nt iha'rinen if you

Must Face Situation.
"It is said that the Amrican people
love fair play, and I believe it. It Is
llso said that we are a courageous
nation. I believe that also, for one
of these conditions can not exist without
th other. Now, no one ever accuses
us, as a people, of being thickheaded
and a nation of fools. Then
let us, as a people, drop pretense, bo
honest with ourselves and look tho
situation now confronting us squarely
and frankly In the face.

( Uiat he hah not and wlu not accept
' campaign money from Incorporated
"Every one knows that It takes a
good sum of money to conduct national
campaigns. Wo know also that
Woodrow Wilson and his Immediate
associates ought not and perhaps can
not pay these bills. Now having elim
inated the corporations and trusts
from contrlbuting to the campaign
fund, if the rank and file do not discharge
their obligation to themselves
and their party by contributing to
this fund, what has the national committee
left to look to there Is only
one class left, that is, the rich.
People Should Contribute.
"Now I warn jou in all earnestness
that If these campaign expenses are
rift 4a r finl.1 1 r llmltnrl ntimliAW
ot rich peop'le, of by all tho
people, the country will not be
to any great extent. There
Vlll simply bo a shifting of the scenes.
The demagogues will hold forth and
Inflame the masses against the rich,
and jou know, gentlemen of the press,
that would not be fair play.
Must Not Breed Discontent
"We do not want to take a step that
would breed hate and discontent
the rich and poor throughout
the land. Also It Is manifestly clear
that If the few pay this debt they will
be depriving the many of the unusual
nnd rare opportunity of further deepening
and broa'dening their natures
and Increasing their love of country.
If there Is not love of country In a
man's heart, something of an opposite
feeling will creep In and take Its
place; indifference to or hate of country,
which is another word for anarchy.
It is only by servlco that we can
Increase our love for home, for mankind
or for country.
Service Increases Love.
"We know that tho persom who
helps and senes his friends, loves
them. Also that the man who gives
loving care and thought for his family
has his nature enriched and blessed
by a strong and deep love for home.
So, that man who serves his party and
country by actually contributing to
its support and giving to It his
service will experience a new
loo of party and of country which
in turn will prove the bulwark and
stability of our form of government
"As the Incorporated interests were
censured In tho past for contributing
to (.amraign funds, does not fair play
now demand that the people them-Hive,
fll tho breath and contribute
to th's fund?
Kentucky Should Respond.
"If, however, Kentucky Is delinquent
arrt 'crs not rise to tho occasion and
rlfp thn sum expected of her by the
rat onal 1 nance committee, and the
few men who now find themselves
In charge, should decide to raise
the money amongst theraseles In order
to uphold Kentucky's fair name
abroad; what would be ths result?

"Fair, play Is a Jewel. I hope you,
gentlcmoa of the Kentucky prtss, will
reflect upon this a little.
"Woodrow Wilson stands btfore the
nation as a magnlfloaat aiaaaple of patriotism
and exalted courage. Let us
on our part uphold him with equal

"Tho seasoned politicians Until at
the Idea ofthe successful fntltic
popular subscription. Tn years ago
we would have agreed with them, bt,
gantlomea of the press of Kentucky,
the Democratic party calls on yeu to
make it a elearasrae noon daysaal

is a test of tie enlightened and
patriotic Manhood of the country. By
that test It will be known if the people
