New Orleans Editor Receives
$7,000 for the Democratic
National Fund. v
ROBERT EWING TELLS OF IT
Oregon for Bryan, Wisconsin Is in
Line and Minnesotans Are
. Most Enthusiastic.
Chicago. 111., Sept. Special Tf pnb-
Hshers of Democratic papers through
out the country are as successful as
Mr. Root Ewing of the New Orleans
Stales in raising funds for the Demo
cratic national campaign. Chairman
Moses CWetmore of the finance com
mittee will not want for money to meet
legitimate campaign expenses. Mr.
Ewing, who has been here attending
the meeting of the Democratic nation
al committee, has collected a popular
subscription fund of approximately
?7,0C0. This has been accomplished
within the piist three or four weeks.
Mr. Ewing predicts that' the States'
fund will grow and that It will final
ly be as much as $20,000.
"Our people are taking a lively in
terest in this work of raising a iopu-
lar fund for the election of Bryan and
Kern." said Mr. Ewing today. "They
realize fully the Importance of getting
a sufluMently large fund to run the
campaign, and they know that thl3
money must come from the people.
The trusts and the special . interests
will save the Republican party the
necessity of going out and raising
money by small subscriptions. That
is the reason this unprecedented col-""
lection of a campaign fund for the
election of presidential candidates has
been comparatively easy. Every par
ish In the state is swelling the fund.
Already Democrats are regarding the
contribution of funds for the election
of Bryan and Kern as a patriotic duty.
Fully "five hundred registrars and
judges of election In Louisiana, who
earn $3.00 a day for their services one
day in each campaign year, have con
tributed their earnings to the Demo
cratic national campaign fund. That
shows the extent of the" personal sac
rifices being made by Democrats in
Not Overlooking Opportunltlm.
Trie Democratic national committee
Is not overlooking opportunities In Pa
cific coast states and a very vigorous
can paign is to be conducted in those
wpstern states. The reports Chair
man Mack has received from Cali
fornia, Oregon and Washington are
convincing that Democrats have a fine
chance to carry all of those states. The
national committee will .work in har
mony with the state committees.'
Speaking of political conditions In
the west. National Committeeman Mil
ler, of Oregon, said today: "Bryan and
Kern will carry Oregon this year,
though I notice In the morning papers
that T'nited States Senator Jonathan
Bourne says that Democrats haven't
a chance in the west. The best an
swer I can make to this statement is
to cite Senator Bourne as an authority
Against himelf. Prior to the Repub
lican national convention, the senator
was proclaiming from one end of the
country to the other that the nomina
tion of Judge Taft would result in his
defeat in the nation and a loss of Ore
gon to the Republican party. Mr.
Ronnie was for the renomination of
President Roosevelt, but I think at the
time he correctly diagnosed the situa
tion in Oregon, when he declared that
Taft could not carry the state against
"Conditions are highly favorable to
the Democracy in Pacific coast states,"
continued Mr. MiVer, "and I believe
Mr. Bryan will get relatively a larger
per cent of the Republican vote In
those states than In any others of like
population in the country. The Den
ver platform 's the best ever put for
ward by n party, and it npieals with
particular force to Pacific coast peo
ple." Ilrnr From Wiaeonnia:
Representative James W Murphy,
if the Third Wisconsin Congressional
district was a caller at Democratic
headquarters today. lie. thinks Demo
crats have a fine chance to carry Wis
consin this year. He told Chairman
Mack as much and went over with
hiir. the political situation in the state.
"There is a wonderful change In
public opinion towards Mr. Bryan this
year." said Congressman - Murjihy.
"This , Is particularly noticeable in
cities where Bryan and Kern clubs are
being organized. In Milwaukee one
night last week, a Democratic club
was started with an enrollment of 280
memlters.' This was in a precinct
where the total Democratic vote four
years ago was only 30. This shows
the drift towards Democracy- in Wis
consin, and I hear, like reports from
all the states of the west."
Chairman Moses C. Wetniore of the
finance committee stated today that
1,500 papers had joined In the move
ment to raise a opular subscription
fund with which to run the Democratic
campaign. He says, in his opinion
every Democratic paper in the United
States will join In this movement.
.Senator Tbos. V. Brady, of New
York, famous as an orator in the. Tam
many organization, was another caller
at Democratic headquarters where
he spent some time with Cnairman
Mack. Senator Grady has been od
a two -ni?atb.s trip through the

Bryan has great strength amon the
western people who admire and be

"Many people express surprise r.-l:c:i
the statement is made that Taft will
fail to carry his own str.te this yer,
but It is my confident opinion that
Ohio will give its electoral vote to
Bryan and Kern." This statement
came from Ed. Mahon, a prominent
business man in Columbus. lii who
called at Democratic headquarters to
arrange for the distribution of litera
ture in Ihe Ohio contest. "We want
all the literature we can got," said
Mr. Mahon, "for the people are in a
very receptive mood this year. It is
surprising to Democrats to find r.o
many Republicans in Mr. Taft's own
state who are for P.ryan and Kern. I
never knew the Democratic party to
be in as, good s'lape as it Is in Obio
today. We are not only going to elect
a Democratic governor, but we are go

It Is an old-time Republican cry tht
"the tariff will be revised by its
friends." Representative McCall of
Massachusetts, a Uopublicau. hit the
nail on the head when in referiiug to
this cry he said: "If the tariff cannot
be revised when two-thirds of the
membership of both houses is Repub
lican, when is revision to come?"
Revision, through the Republican
party, is tocome whenever the bene
ficiaries of a high protective tariff are
willing to surrender the enormous ad
vantages they possess: and this sur
render will be made whenever human
selfishness ij destroyed. 1
