DEMOCRATIC MEETING.

'? nviltee of I Jit* State is called to meet
{in Huntington on Kriday, February
' I (Mb. This is not onl\ a meeting of
, Ihr committee l?ul oiil* of all the
; Democratic loaders of Ihr Stale.
It 'i?- <!hc beginning of a campaign
for a hotter condition and for a con
1 strue'live statesmanship within the
(State. In this day of oxlraveganee
and waste and high taxes the people
are awakening to the necessity of
takings hand in the running of the
Stale Government and to see that the
jrigli* men aro ( looted to oHicc t?i
l<x>k after their business. Cordell
Hull the Democratic National Qi.iir
j|inan, will he present to ad<Iress the
meeting. Many others v.- ill he pres
ent. Every man interested in the
UvelfaTe of our country, no matter
n whether lie he an investor of nione>
'or "whether lie work for wages,
(should hav a live interest in the earn
paign tliis fall. It is a matter of eom
Imon interest. This is exactly what
the Democratic parly proposes to
[do. If it can not get down to busi
ness for the common good of every
lone and every interest, it can no
longer lay claim of being a party of
vervico. Everyone possible should
'attend this mccving and prepare for
a oampagn of education and a kind
that will result in the much needed
curtailment in the expense of Ciov
: eminent.

jty will avail themselves of the <>)?

WOOOROW WILSON FOUNDATION.
I hi* iv should hi' no confuvion in
the public mind concerning tin*
\\ ??>drow Wilson Foundation. sub
scriptions wliiWi are now being
taki ;i. it is jn no sense a campaign,
tiiy opening of the date when con- j
tributions to this fund will lit* re- j
ecived. hilt ju; J a practical way of j
raising I li *.? fund for tin- foundation
and ot pcrnulting everyone who be- j
lieves in 1 1 1 1- ideal, ? : f Woodrow WiJ
Mill to eontrihute to this fund.
I hat there may he no misimdcr
* Sanding the plan should he explain-'
ed. The money obtained does not j
^ "ijiIiow Wilson nor to any j
political party, not- to anv material i
monument to him. hut the funds j
raised will he invested and the in
terest on the investment will he!
given in the form of prizes to the in- i
di\ dr-d (>;? up th.it ha* rendered !
within a specified period, nieritor-'j
ous service to Democracy, public
welfare, liberal thought or peace I
Ihrough justice.
Aftei this fuml has been raised. I
it will be administered through a|
Hoard of I rustees, composed of i
eminent Americans. Ihey will ad
minister the fund as a labor of love'
and without compensation of any
kind . Ami, in this connection, i!
can be cited that everyone in any
?\\a> connected with the campaign '
to endow the foundation is giving j
<>f his or ha* personal service with- i
out recompense ami even the e\- 1
penses of raising the fund are being j
borne by private individuals * who
are active in the movement.
We hold to She belief that Wood- j
row Wilson's labor in furthering j
the cause of human freedom will '
xyne day he accepted as one of the I
constructive acts of centuries. If i
you care to encourage the perpetua-j
lion of these ideals, yon can do ?ol
by subscribing to the Woodrow j
W ilson Foundation.
If any members oT the Coin,rn.;itee !
in this county have not received re
ceipt books from Senator Chilton.
I w 1 1 1 be supplied if they will notify

["weather has made the campaign

t K>se of the campaign. In fact it
only began in Kanawha county or.
the 30!h. The object is to give ever>
one an opportunity. This county
is doing well in this campaign and
we would urge every one to con
jlinuc. I he results so far are flatter
