LADU Of Albany To date, the R epublicans have re ceived $3,742,962 in cam p a ign contri butions; the Democrats have receiv' ed $552,369. It is reasonable to as sum e tha.t there is considerable ju s ti fication for the charge of John W ..D a vis that the favored protected inter ests are endeavoring to buy the elec tion of Coolidge. That a cam p aign can be conducted on legitim a te lines without the use of big slush, fund is am p ly dem onstrat ed by the small sum the Democ.fatS have spent. But th a t isn’t w h at the •favor-hunting crowd w ant. If their man cannot be elected by the legiti mate use of money, then let us have a big slush fund. Freely w e have re ceived so freely must w e give i f w e arc to receive, more. \When the agricultural industry w a n ts some remedial legislation, it is called a socialistic farm bloc. W hen fo r k in g men w a n t justice, they are railed a bloc ■ o f reds and socialists. But if a bloc of porfiteering, high tariff industrialists w a n t some legis lation and is w illing to put up a slush fund of $4,000,000 to get it, w e m u st look upon them as builders of the n a tion, preservers of the constitution. We are radicals, destroyers of pros perity and menaces to the constitution the moment that w e have any other mentality than the tory w a y of think ing. ^ • B ig slu.sh funds w ill not w in ‘ an electidUj however, if the people will get in their minds w h a t a m enace this is.

W hen pulling the pointers for Davis and Smith and the rest of the state ticket, remember that these men in high positions must have the support of the legislatures and of the county adm inistrative of ficers. Let us have good Democratic aclininistration all along the line and Franklin D. -Roosevelt was the as sistant secretary of the navy under W oodrow W ilson for eight years. At tim es he w as the acting secretary. The Republicans say the navy was ineffic ient under Democratic administration; but it w as that navy that put the boys in France through seas infested w ith German submarines w ithout the lo^s of a m an. Prom his experience of eight years, part of ,which was in the greatest war in history, Franklin D. R oosevelt ob tained a great deal of inform ation. He can speak as an authority.
