mind, the most Important article of
Democratic faith. The preservation of
this right in ail its entirety is as Im?

diers would have my earnest uld.
With what partial Information I poa

National Committee Wants Ora?
tors?Various Phases of
Coming Campaign.
Jn response to a request from the
speaker's bureau of the National Dem?
ocratic Committee, State Chairman J.
Taylor Ellyson Is preparing a list of
forceful public speakers In thl.t Statt
who might be .ival.abl?. for service
lit tho approaching fight. In tho list
as so far compiled he has selected men
known for their ability as public
speakers. They may be called to go
to other Statin and help to secure
votes for tho nominees of the party.
Chairman Kllysou was visited by a
perfect shower uf letters yesterday
from tne various bureaus among wan rt
the -work of tho national COmmtlti a
has been divided. They touch on all
the features of campaign work.
One communication was from Chair?
man Ilobert Ewing, of the press con?
tributions bureau. Acting upon a re?
nnest made some weeks ago. Chair?
man Hllyson asked the newspapers ol
Virginia to receive contributions to
the campaign fund of the party. This
second appeal is to have htm ask the
city and county chairmen to use their
tntltiehce towards swelling the num?
ber of contributions sent through the
newspapers, In any way by which they
can add to the list of contributions
w '.in t hnlrmnn to Help.
Complying with this, Mr. Kllyton
wrote yesterday to all city an I county
L'hUlrmeh, They will bo expected to
ace the voters rut far as possible, and
ask them to send money to the news?
papers. "I shall be very much gratl
iled, both as national comrhltteeman
and as State chairman." his letter
ie;,,is, --if you will lend your hearty
co-operation In this way in tho col?
lection of campaign funds for tho
national committee."
It :a felt that .some time Itm't ?
should be placed by newspnpers on
the reception of contributions. This
might emphasize that the money Is J
needed now. at once, so that the Na?
tional Democratic Committee may I
know on what scalo It may plan "is
Another corr.munleatlon Is from what
