An interesting and comprehen?
sive sketch of Dr. Smith is given,
from which the following quota?
tion is taken: "As Dr. Smith bas a
channing personality, consummate
tact, is uniformly courteous and
considerate and has high eductional
ideals, he will be warmly welcom?
ed by the faculty of Washington and

Republicans to Support Wilson
From more than 2,000 letters of
prominent Republicans which Gov?
ernor Wilson has recieved assuring
him that tiie writers would vote the
Democratic ticket this year, not to
mention uncounted letters from
more obscure membets of the Re?
publican rank and tile, there have
been made public the contents of
100 or more which the Governor has
answered personally. In no case
was the name of the writer given
for publication, but the original of
each letter is on tile at tbe Gover?
nor's otlice. A large proportion ?
perhaps 2b per cent?of the nomi?
nee's correspondence is composed
of these unsolicited pledges of sup?
port by Republicans.
The letters given out were select?
ed at random from a group of 200.
but in every case the name of the
writer was suppressed.

who claim the distinguished De?
mocratic Presidential nominee was
born in the Presbyterian parsonage
in Staunton. A telegram from Gov?
ernor Wilson confirms the conten?
tion. Our brother of the Herald
