TAMMANY AN ISSUE BROWN DECLARES Pollard’s Primary Victory Proves This, Coalition Can didate Says in Alexandria. ALEXANDRIA, Va., October 11.—Re fusing to admit that Tammany Hail has ceased to be an issue in Virginia, William Moseley Brown, coalition candi date for governor, declared here last night that his contention regarding Tammany Hall is borne out by the manner in which John Garland Pol lard's victory in the Drmocratic primary was received throughout the Nation. Brown exhibited for the benefit of his 500-odd listeners, who gathered to hear his address at Armory Hall, num erous clippings from newspapers in all sections of the country announcing Pollard's triumph in the primary as a victory forth 2 Smith forces in this State. " Not an Ordinary Election. “This is no ordinary election,” the j former Washington and Lee University professor asserted. "A revolution is in progress, a revolution that had its be g nning mere than a year ago at Hous ton when the Democratic national con vention flaunted defiance in the eyes of the drv South by nominating Gov. Alfred E. Smith. The Democratic ma chine deliberately sold out to Tammany Hall. Tammany Hall does not fit in .vith Southern traditions and Southern democracy.” , . •'There is only one way out and that is to whip th? machine,” he said. Brown assailed Pollard for his "po litical inconsistency,” declaring that the Democratic nominee is a “product of the machine lie once fought so bit terly.” The coalition choice said that Pollard is a ‘hand-picked candidate selected by Harry Flood Byrd, Claude A. Swanson and Carter Glass” and that the Democratic machine acceded to the wishes of those three and merely went through the motions and turned Pollard out as Its candidate. Predicted His Selection. “Pollard told me in Martinsville three weeks before the Democratic pri mary an August 6 that he was the man who would oppose me in the general election.” Brown said. “That primary was corrupt. Anti- Smith Democrats, who had been warned by Attorney General Saunders that they would have no vote in the primary if they cast their ballots for Hoover last November, were invited to vote in Au gust, as were members of the Repub lican party. He said that Pollard, who received 104.000 of the 138.000 votes cast in the primary, was given the largest majority ever accorded a primary candidate in Virginia, and asked how many ant;- Smiths and Republicans cast ballots in that election. He answered his own question by stating that the story will be told in the general election next month. “The largest vote ever cast in a Democratic primary was ita 1925, when 175,000 people voted. Even that year the vote was 37,000 short. Where were .those 37,000 wandering sheep? "They’ll come home,” he predicted “Yes, they'll come home, but not to the Drmocratic party.” Brown said that the slogan of the State Democratic committee, "Vote for Pollard and Progress,” in reality means “Vote for Pollard and Political Expediency.” Progress General. “The progress of Virginia during Byrd's administration is not confined solely to Virginia. It has been general throughout the South during the same period.” He named, among others, Tennessee, the Carolinas and West Vir ginia as States that have progressed in recent years, and added that West Vir ginia has been under Republican ad ministration for the last few years. Brown attacked the absent voters' law. which gives Virginia voters the privilege of voting prior to the election if they believe they will be out of their home precincts on the date of the elec tion. He charged that a “black satchel brigade,” with State Controller E. R. Combs as its “generalissimo,” is even now touring Virginia pockets stuffed with ballots for voting the “ab sent voters,” and that there will be 10,000 votes for Pollard in the ballot boxes when the polls open on election day. Brown denounced the short ballot which, he said, deprives the people of Virginia of their right to elect a State treasurer, commissioner of agriculture and superintendent of public instruc tion and makes those offices appointive by the governor. He said that he fore sees the time when an even shorter bal lot will be suggested and pushed through to victory if the machine remains in power. Promises Better Rule. The coalition candidate promised bet ter government if he is elected to office and also promised a reduction on gaso line and automobile license taxes. Prof. Brown was introduced by Frank Lyon of McLean, State chairman of the Anti-Smith Democrats, as "a man drafted by those independent spirits who defeated Smith in the last elec tion.” He pictured Brown as an “em bryo Wilson who will keep Virginia be fore the eyes of the world.” The meeting was staged by the In d-pendent Voters’ League of Alexandria with its president, C. H. Brown, presid ing. John Barton Phillips. Republican nominee for commonwealth's attorney; Tyson Janncy, independent candidate for tb“ House of Delegates, and W. Sel d”n Washington, independent candidate for cleik of the Corporation Court, spoke also. Music was furnished by the Citizens’ Bind, while the invocation was offered by Rev. George J. Hooker, pastor of the Methodist Protestant Church. The en tire program was broadcast by radio from station WJSV at Mount Vernon Hills, Va. FORT SOIL WILL BE USED INU.D. C.

FAIRFAX, Va„ October 11.—John W. Rust of Fairfax, commander of the local camp. Sons of Confederate Veterans, and recently elected president of the Manassas Battlefield Confederate Park Association, has launched a campaign to raise funds for the development of this park as the Gettysburg of the South. Every son or daughter of a Confed erate veteran is to be asked to con tribute at least $1 toward this project. Mr. Rust, at the invitation of Col. Charles T. Norman of Richmond, com mander of the Virginia division, went to Petersburg this week to outline to the annual meeting of the Virginia Division, Sons of Confederate Veterans, the prog ress which has been made on the Manassas Battlefield Park. His scheme for financing the neces sary improvements met with enthusias tic support, and the convention author ized the appointment by the commander of a committee of five, one from each brigade in the division, to assist in col lecting the money from the camps in Virginia. There are now at least one and frequently several camps in each of the 100 counties, with approximately 1,800 members, in addition to the many sons of veterans not affiliated with any organization. Mr. Rust announced that, the asso ciation hgd raised the entire $15,000 re quired by the State in order to secure the SIO,OOO authorized by the 1923 State Legislature. As this money was not claimed within two years of the date when appropriated, new legislation will be necessary by the incoming State Legislature. J. H. Bradford of Rich mond, director of the budget, has prom ised to bring this to the attention of Gov. Byrd and his budget committee when that committee meets at an early date.
