By Lowell Mellett
(United Press staff correspondent.)
St. Louis, Mo., June 13. Democratic
Nntioi-al Chairman William, F. Mb
Combs wired Bainbridge Colby, of New
York, an invitation to join the demo
cratic party. His action was bnsed on
Colby's repudiation of Roosevelt, for
whom he had made the nominating
speech .in the progressive convention
nt Ch'cago Saturday.
McCcmbs' action was the most strik-j
ing development to date of the demo-crati-'.
leaders' efforts to find a way to I
kidmip the four million votes of the'
prognssive party which they consider;
orphi.ned by Roosevelt's decision net to j
be their cand'ulatc ns outlined by the
I'uitcd Press yesterday.
I lie telegram read:
" P!.inlnidge Colony, Xassati street,;
Xew York: ' j
"I hove read your statement. It np-j
pears that Colonel Roosevelt has at-!
tempted to send his former enthusiastic!
follow ers stumbling along to destruc-1
t ion. The progressive democracy cor-j
dially and sincerely offers thorn safety. !
(Sigrri1) William F. McCombs, chair-.!
man democratic national committee." j
JL'Combs' phrase, "stumbling,
along," was adapted from Colby's!
statement of yesterday. Colby said J
among other things:
"The progressives haxe sustained -a
headoM collision with their lender. The
'fact is manifest. He is to look the
situat;on over and decide what to do,
but we. too, will look the field over and
determine what we will do."
M.'Combs said today he expects to see
men l'ke Colby who were prominent in
the progressive convention declare for
Wilson soon. He hinted the democratic
platfoim may contain much to appeal
to progressives. He refused to com
ment on reports that some of the con
servative democratic lenders had at
temptari to check the efforts to win
over the progressives.
A uitional child labor law and recog-
j nitio:i of the woman suffrage movement
jnny lie two ot the leading planks in
the democratic platform, designed to
catch progressive votes,
Th? child labor plank is to be the
principal feature- of the ''social wel
fare" clauses. Those urging this plank
desire it to show progressives that the
democratic party is willing to abandon
its historic states stand on this subject.
A canvass or strength, progressive,
demociats claim, has shown that south
ern democrats here have not sufficient
strength to block this plank.
Opposition to the progressive-wooing
progirm was voiced today by Senator
Hardwick of Georgia, one of the con
servative group in the senate.
"I-f wo win, we'll win ns democrats
on historic, democratic issues," said
Hardwick. "The so-called progressives,
believe, will get checked up short if
they attempt to override states rights
on child labor and similar measures."
