TUESDAY, AUGUST 3, 1920, X ASKS MISSISSIPP TO CONTRIBUTE TO BIG CAMPAIGN State Committee and National Committeeman Urge Citi zens to Aid m Fight in Doubtful States. JACKSON, Miss.. Aug. J. (Spl.) Os car Johnson, of Clarksdale, Miss., na tional Democratic committeeman for Mississippi, has written an open let ter to the Democrats or the state, urging them to aid In raising a fund I.h i defrayrS the expenses of the national campaign. Mr. Johnson says that the Democrats ot the state are prone to ignore the request sent out for funds by the state executive committee because there Is no contest in Mlsissippl. This, he de clares Is wrong, and calls upon all able to contribute to the fund to do so at once, and aid in the bitter fight being waged in such states as New York, Connecticut, New Jersey and taiifornla, Mr. Johnson's open letter follows: "To the Democrats of Mississippi: At a meeting of the State Demo ,r i executlve committee, held on July 20, a request was made for funds with which to aid In defraying the expenses of the national campaign now on. These funds to be sent to Mr O. F. Lawrence, Grenada. Miss., secre tary of the state committee, or Judge Robert H, Powell, of Jackson, Miss., committee chairman. "In Mississippi, where there is no contest, we are prone to lose sight of the bitter fight being waged between trie great national parties In such states as New York, Connecticut, New Jersey and California. "Six months ago the leaders of the Republican party believed that their success in November was assured. They felt that nothing was necessary ex cept for nine men to assemble in a room, and In the 'wee small hours' of the night, select a candidate, go through the form of having their se lection ratified by their convention, then propose him to a country, which In their judgment was awaiting anx iously the opportunity to vaty homage to the man of their selection. Today these gentlemen have been disillusioned. They have proposed to the people of America, a man. who stands for noth ing, one who is ultraconservative and reactionary, a nonprogressive, whose record does not appeal to the laboring man, to the farmer or to the progres sive and wide-awake business man. The Democratic party on the contrary of fers the nation a man who stands for progress, a man whose record as gov ernor of Ohio must necessarily appeal to every class of citizen, a hard-fisted, clear-thinking, outspoken American, one who being certain that he is right, goes ahead courageously, one who proposes to carry the fighting into the enemies' trenches. With such a can didate, victory is within the grasp of our party, but to conduct this war, to carry the gospel of Democracy. Into every ballwick, to inform the people throughout the land, both regarding the candidate and the matchless platform, In support of which he campaigns, funds are essential. "Corporate interests and pedatorv wealth have contributed and will con tinue to contribute lavishly toward swelling the already enormous cam paign fund at the disposal of the Re publican party. "That we may successfully conduct this campaign, It Is essential that we of Mississippi shall do something more than 'vote the ticket,' while standing so far behind the line that we can scarcely hear the rumble of the artil lery; we should and must contribute substantially. "As national Democratic committee man of Mississippi, I appeal to every loyal Democrat to whom this message shall come, to respond In proportion to his means and to his love of the par ty. Checks or money orders should be ecnt to either of the gentlemen above yarned, or to me, in order that pro ceeds may be remitted to the national committee at an early date. The fight is -on, the money Is needed today. Re spectfully, "OSCAR JOHNSON, "National Democratic Committeeman." Watson back after organizing council C. W. Watson, director of the farm bureau division of the Chamber of Commerce, returned Monday night from Paris. Tenn., where he aided the Henry county farm agent In organiz ing a county agricultural council Proof that the farmers of Tennessee are more Interested in agriculture than politics was shown, Mr. Watson said, Monday when both a farmers' and po litical meeting were in session at the same time in Paris. Both meetings began at the same time and within half an hour It looked like the poli ticians would have to disband for the lack of attendance while It appeared that more accommodations would have to he made to seat the number that attended the farmers' meeting. Over 500 members are now enrolled In the Henry county organization, and a one-day drive is to be launched In the near future when every precinct In the county will be canvassed for more members. A committee was appointed at Monday's meeting to take charge of this work and farmers who have been unable to attend the meetings held recently will be given a chance to enroll PARDONS GRANTED.
