Tne State Democratic convection |
adjourned Thursday night after a1
stormy session, one marked by the
rule of the machine which literally
overwhelmed the delegates and ran
the thing in their own way. The
*'steam roller" did its work well.
The result was the election of a del
egation unpledged to any candidate.
and bound by the unit rule. While
not operly anti-Wilson, that candi
date will probably never remembe
getting Virginia's delegation whei
the balloting is on. A feature o
the convention was the election c
Thomas Fortune Ryan, of Nei
York, as a delegate to the nations
convention.
Eight delegates at large, with
half vote each, were elected, as fo
lows: Harry St George Tucke
Thos. S. Martin, W. H. Mam

H. D. Flood.

Following is a synopsis of
Democratic platform as adopte
the Norfolk convention last T!
day. It is remarkable for its \
it? as well as for its lack of
and virility.
It begins by endorsing the ac
istration of Governor Mann,
commends the course ot Demo
for the past twentv-seven 5
Remarkable as it may sound,
platform declares that "the
has not only met its oblig;
punctually, but has antici
them. Her credit is as good a
ot any government in the wt
etc. Further the platform de
"her people are encouraged b;
hie conditions, moderate tax
fairly adjusted among all cl
with wise and progressive 1<
ship." etc.

tes
about increased pensions to old sol?
diers.
The course of thc House of Rep
resenta'ives in its efforts at tariff
legislation is endorsed and com?
mends the economical administra
[ tuon of the government by the House.
The following sections of the plat?
form are more interesting:
That we favor that revision of the
tariff which is embodied in the bills
which have passed the House ot
Representatiuec. and we declare our
firm conviction that the people arill
only secure relief from the unjust
burdens under which ,they are stag?
gering by placing the Democratic
party in power; we believe that tbe
tariff is the most vital issue in this
campaign and that it should not be
obscured by any other issue.
We heartily indorse the suggestion
that this government should estab?
lish at least one '"free port," aad
that such "port" be established ot
Hampton Roads, in the State oi
Virginia.
We believe that the honest busi
ness, farming and working classes
of the country would be largely re
lieved from panics and consequeu
unemployment by a democratic an<
nonpartisan revision and codification
of our antiquated banking Uara
which, while creating an elastic not
and credit system, would at th
UaBe time preserve our independen
banks from any dominant Enancii
or political control.
We approve the principle of ni
tiona! aid to slate roads, as ai
I nounced in our last notional platf oro
ad specifically indorse the bill whU
.fords such aid and which was r
'c-"" cently passed by a Democrat
House of Representatives.
rcrc Believing that the principle of
on graduated tax on incomes is soon
latc equitable and thoroughly democrat
& that the proposed amendmc
flag, to the Federal Constitution, whi
?rth- has been submitted to the se ve
port states of the Union for ratificati<
resigned to make clear the pot
: the Federal government to I
such a tax without apportioned
among the several States accord
:o population, should receive the i
cation of Virginia and of si
other States as have not aires
ratified it. we declare it as the se
of this convention that said propo
amendment should be ratified
the next General Assembly of \
ginia. and we express the hope t
a Democratic Congress and Presic
will carry this method of taxa
into effect at the earliest opportun
to the end that wealth may bear
just proportion of the burdens of
government.
After declaring for the indepi
ence of the Philippine Islands,
platform says:
The convention reaffirms its
giance to the principle of pric
elections for nominations to of

NOEL SCHOOL ll
TO OE CLOSED
miS .DEPARTMENT WILL
CLOSE PERMANENTLY
It has been practically decided
that the William and Mary Model
School will not be opened another
session, tbe matter being now before
the broad for final action during
the finals. This decision was
hastened by the resignation of Misses
Davis and Stillwell. It is understood
that the lfacul*y will positively re?
commend the permanent closing of
the school, which recommendation
without doubt will be acted upon
favorably by the board.
The faculty has two plans in view
as to the conduct of a training and
observation school in connection
with the normal department. The
first is to estsblish a high school as
the William and Marr Academy
which will afford these students in
training as teachers to get practical
work and observation. The second
is to make a proposition to the school
authorites of Williamsburg whereby
a graded and high school will bi
conducted here in connection wit!
the college, the latter institution ta
pay a certain cost. This latter plaj
has not been fully des tipped as yet
but it will be proposed to the cit;
council and school board withu
few weeks.
I The closing of the Model Scnoc
throws some 100 more pupils of tkj
primary grades upon the city 1
educate. It will entail a large ea
penditure in addition to what is a
ready spent on the schools and w
necessitate an increase of the ti
rare to at least $1.25. Supt. Hoov
rather approves the plan to comb"
with the college in the establishme
here of a first grade high school.
Under this plan the college wos
be given a limited control over t
entire school in 'a "supervisory ws
and would thus have complete obs*
vatisn work for the young
educated here as teachers
