Dale Wilson spent Tuesday in
Woodrow Wilson is a vastly different order of man than you find among the ranks of many good men in
practical political life.
Woodrow Wilson is not among the great majority of politicians and business men, otherwise estimable
characters, who believe that the end justifies the means, who are honest in a commercial or political sense.
The candidate of the progressive voters of the country not only does not believe in the doctrine of
"anything to win," but he insists on plain old fashioned honesty in every detail of his campaign.
Woodrow Wilson proposes to win on the merits of his candidacy and platform or not at all.
"Clean hands or no fight" is Wilson's ultimatum to his supporters throughout the country.
No Tainted Money For Wilson
Not a dollar of questionable money will be spent to elect Woodrow Wilson.
The Democratic National Committee is heart and soul in accord with the candidate's views.
And the corrupting influences, with no political faith, casting about to win a foothold in the new govern
ment with bribes of ill-gotten gains, have despaired of reaching Wilson or his campaigners.
They have gone to the enemy, whoever that enemy may be. It is a matter of common knowledge that
the "Interests" are using all their political funds to defeat Wilson.
This makes it your fight.
What the American People Need to Know
- The people have constantly made the mistake of believing that this is a money-ridden nation.
Such is only the case insofar as the People fail to get together and so permit the few to control the dishonest
representatives they, by mistake, elect to office.
The actual money power of the People is still greater than that of the Interests.
The Progressive People of the country, if they get together, can buy and sell the Corrupting Influence!
and destroy their financial power. -
So Woodrow Wilson and his managers believe that not only is it the only clean method but the most
practical method for the Progressive People of the country to supply the Woodrow Wilson Campaign Fund.
The People to Fight With THEIR Dollars
This year a popular president is to be elected with the People's money.
The Woodrow Wilson Campaign Fund is to be collected from the rank and file of the Progressive Voters
of the country.
The bills of the Democratic National Committee are to be paid, not with the thousands of the Interests, .
but with the individual dollars of the earnest, eager voters who desire clean, efficient government and who are-
wilhn? to help Wilson as he wants to be helped.
Money thus needed is not spent in improper ways or in any manner similar to the way in which the funds of the.
interests are disDursecr
But we have to tell the voters of the country about Woodrow Wilson. We have to tell them what he has done.
We have to tell them what he stands for. We have to point out to them the important planks in his platform. All this
means that to hold up our end we will be obliged to spend as much money as those who oppose us.
This means that every man or woman who believes in Wilson should be willing; to contribute to his cause.
Let the supporters of Wilson help us to spread the Wilson gospel to the four winds.
Let the Progressive Voters battle this year with their pocketbooks as well as their ballots.
We Solicit Popular Subscriptions Can You Give From $1 to $20?
Of course, you can and you are clad to support the cause in this way.
Practically every voter can afford to give $1 to aid the Wilson Campaign. A great many can give t2. A great
many can give o. Ana tnere are lots ana lots ot progressive voters who will be eager to donate trom siu to zu.
These are the kind of contributions we want.
' And live will be proud to receive from thousands, who can only afford 81, their SI contributions. We want to hear
from every man who has a dollar to give. .
This year the man with the dollar must defeat the government traducer who spends his thousands.
