SPEAKERS ATTACK CONVENTION PLAN 1 Continued from l'lrst r.tge.) port of Marshall Ward voters in tlio coming1 election. w:ih singular unan? imity they condemned in toto the con? vention plan or any modification of it, declaring1 themselves to stand for a direct election by primary. "I am absolutely opposed to th^> con? vention id-a and I believe thai it will mean the blocking or the will of the people.said K, I \ Duvlaon, labor can? didate for Uir Common Council, on the mooted question. "I am utterly oppctsed to the conven? tion idea," was the WJIJ Jefferson C. Powers put it, concluding ?11 appeal for the support of the voters of Mar? shall Ward, in tho primary on Apiil 3U.

Hogers. I ?and now it seems that the same lac-j ties nrt to i.e followed In making up| its personnel. If ihc people are com-1 potent to elect delegates to tho con-1 vcnlion, why aren't lliey equally as coiiiptent to elect members of the bond'.' I think it woulu be folly to select them by Convention.'' "Ii would be a mistake to go back t.. the convention system," declared J. It. Welsh, "and I hope that this body Will pass a resolution against the plan." "I fuvor a primary, which is the proper vote of the people." was Ilm whj W. K. Sullivan reinforced Hie an? vil chorus. "l think, as a cltlxcii of Richmond, that I have Intelligence enough to pick nut live able men for the Administra? tive Board, and I concede the same ability to the other voters of the city," said C. II Wiltshire. "The Idea of a con? vention is too absurd to talk about.'" B. Uallaghcr, a member of the as-' sication, looked upon tho convention plan as a scheme to draw up a slate mad. up of individuals Itcceptublc to .1 select lew of "intellectuals," ami one which bears strong resemblance to the more palpable knavery ? mployed by politicians to thwart ;i.. will of tin voters. IS. W. r.vans. M. T. Hogers. and i LScoi'ge T Davis, members of the City!

N. Ooodo, Only two of the candidates for kho Administrative Board were present al the meeting, John 11 Irschberg, und 1.;.-gc B. Davis.

He call? ed the attention of the reporters pre? sent to tile fact that the present meet? ing was an entirely representative gathering. .Innies Dlckcraon was less reserved and charged In eltOCt that the news? papers of the city were Joined in an unholy alliance with the "ring" to thwart the will of the people- Tho same organs that were active in keep? ing the matter from reaching the vol. !?'. when the creation of the board was being agitated, he said, were now pursuing the same tactics, ami de? nouncing those wlio disagree with I hem as t" the convention plan aal demagogues and cnttlijsn.
