Says U. S. Must Return to

TRENTON, N. J., Sept. 18.?Charlea
E. Hughes opened the Harding
Coolidge campaign in New Jersey to?
day with an address at an unofficial
convention of Republicans at Shrine
Temple, in this city. The plain and
immediate duties confronting the ra?
tion, he said, were to effect economies,
to reach ;i decision concerning a league
of nations a-!.i to maintain the prin?
ciples of liberty.
The Democratic Administration, he
declared, had shown itself unfitted for
these duties. It was an administra?
tion, he said, which had become ac?
customed tp the extravagance of war?
times, and such economies as had been
attained were the result of the cut?
ting of departmental estimates by a
Republican Congress. It was neces?
sary to s^iid a new pa'ty into office
on an issue of economy to make a
reduction in taxes possible, he said.
As to the League of Nations, he laid
before his audience the covenant
which President Wilson brought back
from Europe. As to the desirability
ef an international brotherhood to end
war there could be no two opinions,
ho declared, and he intimated that
once the Wilson covenant was under?
stood plainly there could be no two
opinions about that either.
American Principles First
Any international agreement into
which the I'nited States entered must
be compatible with Ameritan princi?
ples and fundamental interests and
have provisions appropriate to its
professed aim of ending war, the for?
mer justice of the Supreme Court said.
"But the proposed covenant was not
of this character," he added.
Artie!'' X he characterized as the
''vice" rather than the "beau'' of the
"in case of future conflict,'' Mr.
Hughes declar? d, "whatever our opin?
ion of the merits and however removed
it may n< from any interest of ours,
we are bound to go to war, if neces?
sary, to preserve as against external
aggression the territorial possessions
of a member of the league."
There must be a return, he declared,
toan administration which would pre?
stir? the rights of free speech, free
assembly, representation, and depriva?
tion of liberty only by due process oi
law. These fundamental principles ol
liberty had been "betrayed in their own
house," Mr. Hughes asserted.
Kehuke for Maladministration
Mr. Hughes said, in part:
"A general election is the great as
*'ze, the only time when administra?
tion is brought to an accounting. W?
?re not a censorious people, but levitj
in passing judgment upon officers ol
government and political parties ill be
comes a democracy. The best suretj
of the future is not in the promise o?
platforms, but in the certainty of re
b?ke for maladministration and in th<
checking of harmful tendencies by th<
displacement of those responsible fo'
them and the refusal to invest witl
power those who would continue 01
condone them. We endeavor to appre
c?ate accurately the mischief, not sim
ply to be critical but to point the rem
edy and the future course.
"When we consider the stupendou;
undertaking of the great war and tin
achievement of American arms wo wisl
'o give full credit to all, irrespective
of party, who nobly sustained thei
part. The splendid unity we. then ex
nibited will be one of the pricclcs

PARIS, Sept. 18.- Premier Millerand
is said to be weakening in his deter?
mination to refuse the Presidency of
France. All day to-day he was be- \
sieged with callers, who urged him to
accept the office. He is reported to
have declared that at any rate he
would not conside? the nomination un?
less the French constitution were
The Senators and Deputies are pre?
paring a monster demonstration in
favor of Millerand when the electoral
assembly meets next Thursday. The
Premier then will declare his views
about the constitution. If the changes
which he has in mind are acceptable to \
the joint assembly Millerand is ex- ''?
pected to consent to become a candi?
date for the office of President.
Politicians believe that Millerand'?
election would cause an earthquake in
French politics. Aristide Briand, for?
mer Premier, who is now on a sea voy?
age, is expected to emerge as the new
Prime Minister. M. Poinearc, it is be?
lieved, probably would accept office in a
Briand ministry. .
Many Frenchmen are beginning to
believe that it would be better for
France's foreign policy if Millerand
were elevated to the Presidency. Mil?
lerand's career as Minister of For- !
r':~n Affairs has been a little too brill?
iant. He has continually been in dis?
putes between France ai d Great Bri?
tain, and bis frequent successes have
left the relations between the two
countries somewhat strained. He has
inflicted several defeats on Premier
Lloyd George which threaten to make
future negotiations between the two
One of the first tasks of French di?
plomacy would be to edkiciliato Eng?
land. Briand would be the man selected,
to undertake this delicate mission.
Briand is France's most potent orator
and has the reputation of having the
most subtle intellect in the country.
Millerand's blunt diplomatic moth- i
ods have been successful, but have left
a sting behind. Briand is a man of
strong ideas. His advent to power
might be an international event of,
the first importance, because he would
be capable of changing France's for- :
eign policy completely. He is believed
to be in favor of some kind of an :
understanding between France and j
The changes in the French consti
tution which Millerand will propose
are said to be: (1) Provision for the ?
nomination of a Vice-President; (2)
amendment to give the President more j
powers, particularly in the dissolution
of the Chamber and in the appoint
ment of ministers.
M. Millerand is said to have reiter- i
ated his refusal, whereur?on?,Perot and ;
Jonnart departed for their country
homes leaving the matter unsettled.

elect a successor to M. Deschanel, will

Mrs. Lane fasted three days longer

of Cork's hunger strike has lasted. He
has not had food since August 12.
"The first three days of my fast was '.
the only time I had a craving for food," !
?aid Mrs. Lane to-day. "After that I
had practically no desire to eat. When
I first entered upon the fast my weight I
was 185 pounds. To-day I weigh l??
pounds, and am still 15 pounds above |
my normal weight. Aside from feeling j
a little weak at times, I enjoyed better j
health than for many years, and to-day
feel perfectly well. Should my former
stomach trouble recur, I will at once
enter upon another fast. I feel that I
have done nothing unusual in this course
to rid myaelf of a severe case of stomach

All Ships To Be Searched to Prevent
Reds From Escaping as Stowaways
Chief William J. Flynn, in charge of the Federal forces investigat?
ing the Wall Street explosion, has ordered Department of Justice
operatives at all ports along the Atlantic Coast to make a thorough
search of outgoing vessels for stowaways. He believes that by barring
their exit from the country the perpetrators of the crime eventually
will be caught.
Convinced that the "American Anarchist Fighters" who placed
the death circulars in a mail box near the scene shortly after the blast,
were the same crowd that sent the bombs through the mails in June,
1919, he is not going to be caught napping as he was last year.
As stowaways, these anarchists, he says, usually slip out of the
country soon after their deviltry, generally bound for Italy, After
the suicide of Salsedo last year, he says, the hands of the Federal
authorities were tipped off and the crowd got out of the country before
they could be caught. The next few days may see wholesale arrests of
stowawayg all along the coast.

LONDON, Sept. 18. - A bomb explo?
sion in Genoa occurring directly after
the Wall Street outrage strengthens
opinion here that both were the work
of anarchists, who probably intend fur?
ther political crimes. Italy is infested

There is no doubt that the explosion
in Genoa was due to a time bomb
placed, by an anarchists, but the crim?
inal is undiscovered. An explosive ex?
pert here believes that TNT caused the
damage in New York.
Bomb Failed in Purpose
Most London newspapers comment
this morning on the explosion, all,
with the exception of The Daily,
Herald, which admitted receiving'
$."75,000 from the Bolshevik govern?
ment, accepting the view that it was
the work of "American Bolsheviki."
The Telegraph says:
"If this was a plot to deal a deadly
blow to 'capitalism' it proved a com-'
plete failure. The sufFerers were j
mainly quite humble people of modest
'means, clerks of both sexes and other
inconspicuous but useful workers.
Apart from a slight hurt inflicted
upon J. S. Morgan, no 'capitalist' ap?
pears to have been so much as
scratched. The plot can achieve no
purpose except to arouse feelings of
indignation against men who could
plan such an infamous crime.
"It is nearly always the same with
these crazy enemies of society; they
hit out blindly and strike down scores
of persons against whom they can have
no possible grudge. Meanwhile the
civilized world will hope that the mis?
creants speedily will be laid by the
heels and duly punished. They have
given a signal which, we trust, will
not be without effect in other coun?
tries, causing effective steps to be
taken to guard life and property
against such diabolical crimea of dis?
The Daily Mail, after pointing out
that this is but the latest of a crop of
outrages resulting from the literature
cf Trotzky and L?nine says:
"Civilized governments of the world I
would act wisely in putting up an un- !
climbable fence against these crim?
inals and announcing that their funds
will be seized and they themselves
treated as ordinary robbers and mur?
derers and denied the immunity of 'po?
litical offenders.' Then the Moscow
banditti and their friends will realize
that their own necks are in danger.
Plotters in England
"In this country they have rewarded
the deplorable weakness of our govern?
ment by conspiring against the state
and endeavoring to create a venal rep?
tile press in order to cause a revolu?
The Daily Express says: "There are
a lot of lunatics about, and only a per?
son of unsound mind could be guilty of
such an act. People who spread the
poisonous doctrine of anarchy, discon?
tent and envy have much to answer for.
Usually the high priests of agitation
are people who themselves are com?
fortably off- theorists, addle-pated
babblers, who love to hear themselves
"Their victims take them seriously.
Some day society will find a means to
deal with the trouble-brewer."
The Daily Herald says: "The New
York disaster was at first attributed to
accident, but in a country so nervously
apprehensive about Reds the second
version was inevitable?the version
translating a cruel accident into vicious
design. If, indeed, there was a delib?
erate attack on life it is abominable,
just as every form of war is abomin?
able. There is enough misery in the
world without recourse to deeds of
slaughter, whether such deeds be car?
ried out by governments or against
The Westminster Gazette says:
"There seems to be little doubt that the
explosion was no accident, but was
planned and carried through by means
of a tremendously powerful bomb. We
might say that it was the work of a
madman, but things done on tnat scale
are not carried through by one man."
It believed that the explosion was in?
tended as a political outras? planned
by "a group of anarchist! or,,madmen.*

Two men were detained for fur?

The other is llazzio Dominico, an

the vessel yesterday. He will be

Brailovsky, a short, plump, inof?
fensive looking man of thirty-two,
who wears spectacles and is partly
bald, was placed under arrest as an
undesirable alien at It p. m. after
he had been examined for seven
hours at Police Headquarters by de?
tectives of the bomb squad, agents
of the Department of Justice and
Fire Marshal Brophy.
Adt?iir? Radical Affiliations
According to Detective Sergeant
James Gegan, the man has been con?
nected with radical movements ami
publications throughout the three
years he has been in this country,
and admits that he was at Pine and
Nassau streets at 12:25 p. m. Thurs?
day, less than half an hour after thei
explosion. He was picked up at the
office of the Russky Golos (the Rus?
sian Voice), a pro-Bolshevik publi?
cation, which is printed in the base?
ment of an old tenement at 61
He responded to questions readily
enough, saying that he had gone down?
town Thursday to consult a jeweler
concerning the value of jewelry which
he recently had received from Italy,
where his wife and child are living.
After leaving the jeweler's, he said,
he fell in with an acquaintance, an- M
other Russian, who was interested in W
the Russian drama and wanted to en- ^
li;,t his services in a dramatic project
he had in view. He knew nothing
wnatever of the origin of the ex?
plosion, he said.
(iegan said his prisoner told him
that he was a Russian by birth and
received his education in Petrograd.
He had spent two years in-Siberia as a
political prisoner. On his own ac?
count the detoetive sergeant added
that Brailovsky had opened the All
Russian convention at Manhattan
Lyceum in East Fourth Street, Janu?
ary 19. 1919, with the words:
"In the name of the world-wide rev?
olution I now declare this convention
Edited Suppressed Publication
Gegan declared that Brailovaky for?
merly had been editor of the Worker,
and Peasant, a Russian publication-.
in this city, which was suppressed by '
the authorities. He said that the im?
mediate purpose of placing him under
arrest was to give Federal detectives
an opportunity to inquire into his
movements for a few days prior to the

The stowaway, after questioning by
George Lamb, local chief of the De?
partment of Justice, was released. Chief
William J. Flynn, of the Bureau of In?

the act of concealing himself aboard
an outgoing vessel, but that there was
nothing about him to warrant his be?

In addition to throwing'extra guards
about public buildings and the homes
of men whose lives might be sought by
anarchists, the police sent epecial de?
tails of detectives to elevated and sub?
way stations in Manhattan, Brooklyn,
the Bronx and Queens, presumably to
prevent any attempt to interrupt the
transportation service of the city. Th?
guards will hold their stations until
to-morrow at least. Police officials
refused to tell what information they
had received that made such precau
i tions seem necessary. They were
I taken after officers of the department
had made their report on their in?
vestigation to Mayor Hylan. Churches
will also be guarded to-day. %
