THE SUN, SUNDAY, SEPTEMBER 10, 1916.
DEMOCRATS ADMIT
DEFEAT IN MAINE
Seduco Claims to Frcdiction
of U. S. Senator Johnson's
Keolection.
BIO FIGHT EVEN ON HIM
Borah Jumps Into Campaign
as Hughes Gets to
Augusta.
Augusta, Me., Dept. 9. The Demo,
erttlc managers In Mains virtually ad
mil defeat. They reduced their claim
to-day to a prediction that they would
lect one ot the two United States Serin
ton, Charlea p. Johnson, who ! run
ning to succeed himself, and one of the
four members of Conitrewi. Daniel J.
Mcallllcuddy, In the Second district.
"We will reelect Johnson and Med II
llcuddy," they said, "and It we should
accomplish nothing more the result would
fca a Democratic victory."
There was a side bet by William It.
Pattaniall, chairman ot the Democratic
campaign committee, that the Democrats
would carry the State for Oakley C.
Curtis for Oovernor by ,000. That pre
diction was negligible, for when a cam
paign manager talks of a 3,000 I'lu
rallly, even In a close Btute, It Is taken
! mean he expects to lose.
hthasoa Given 0,000 Lead.
It Is asserted for 8nator JohnBon that
no Is 5,000 votes stronger than his ticket
beeause of his personal popularity with
Influential Republicans In the State. The
aaertlon Is disputed In Hepubllcan head
starters. The most they will concedo to
Senator Johnson there Is a lead of from
IM to 1,000 votes over the Democratic
candidate for Oovernor, not enough to
sT him. The ballot In Maine permits
the voting of u straight ticket by a sin
gle "X" mark, and the Hepubllcan lead
en believe straight tickets will be the
aahlon on Monday.
Besides, Senator Johnson's record has
Wen exploited through the length and
hreadth of the State. Ha has ben a fa
write subject for the Republican car
tooalsts. These have portrayed him as
"Mary's Little Lamb," running bleating
after a damsel labelled "Sunny South,"
reference to Senator Johnson's subser
"rismea to the Southern Democratic Sen
ate ring. A still more effective cartoon
ot the Democratic Senutor shows him
walking arm In urm with "Mil's Sunny
South" along the banks of the Kennebec,
while Maine Industries are typified by
asUways clinging to a raft appealing In
vain for his help.
Coaeeatratlnr on Jajfcaseia.
The Hepubllcan campaign. In fact, has
twen concentrated In large part on the
dafeat ot Johnson, and It Is not believed
he can survive the exposure of his free
trade record. Senator Lodge, Senator
Borah and other Republican senators
who have spoken In Maine have told how
n every occasion when the protection of
an American Industry was In the balance
in Washington Senator Johnson In
variably voted with the free trade Demo
crats from the South.
Senator liorah was the chief speaker
at a closing Hepubllcan rally In this city

Johnson as an enemy to American In
dustry was an Important phase ot the

An enlivening eleventh hour develop

foreign policy In particular to the tariff
question, over which many battles have
been waged In this State.
A Oovernor, auditor, four Representa
tives, two Senators, a legislature and
county officers will be chosen on Monday.
Of the present Maine delegation In the
national IIouso three are Republican anil
one Democratic. One United States Sena

Curtis, who seeks reelection, la a Demo
crat Frank J. Ham, chairman of the Re
publican Slate committee, Issued a state
ment In which he said : "From a care
ful canvass of the State I believe that
the Republican party In next Monday'
election will poll 7(,000 votes, the Demo
crats (1,600 and the Socialists and Pro
hibitionists combined 3,000 votes, thus
giving the Republicans a plurality of
15,000. In the election of two years ago
tha Progressive party polled U.OOO
votes and I believe this year that tha
Republicans will get at least 75 per cent,
of that vote. All four Congress dis
tricts will be swept by the Republicans."
William R. I'attangall, chairman of
the Democratic campaign committee,
said: "I believe that the Democratic
party In the election of Monday will poll
71,000 votes, which wilt give us a plur
ality nf 3,000. I am confident that we
will elect our candidate for Oovernor,
two United States Senators and at least
on Congressman."

WiNciiisrta, Ky., Sept. t. Republi
can criticism of the Wilson Administra
tion was reviewed by VIce-I'resldent Mar
shall In a speech here to-day, with the
conclusions that the main reason offered
the country for turning out the Demo
crats was the desire of the Republicans
to get In nnd that Mr. Hughes's cam
paign speeches were but echoes of often
heard partisan orations in the Senate.
Mr. Marshall said:
"Just now. chief Interest In the Re

stand pat neck ot his party. The Una
ot dcmarkatlon between the two wings

has not found his bearings.
"For purely partisan purposes, the
Republican orators are proclaiming that

Republicans Believe Election
Will Show Trend of Re
turn to Ranks.
Chairman Wlllcox and his associates
at Republican headquarters Here arc con
vinced the Republicans are going to win
the Maine election on Monday. They ad
mit the possibility of the Democrats
picking up one Representative In Con
gress, but that Is all. Reports yesterday
from Chairman Cole of the speakers' bu
reau and others ull declared the battle to
be won.
With the Maine election marking the
close of the preliminary stage of the na
tional campaign, the Interest of Ihe Re
publican managers centres chiefly In the
Indication the election figures will nr
ford of the way In which the 1'ro-
grcislveH and Independents throughout
the country hto to line up In November,
This Is the big problem In this cam
paign. So Important Is It regarded that
on Tuesday, with the Maine figures nt
hand, there will be a conference with
Col. Roosevelt at Oynter liny, at which
Frnnk H. Hitchcock, Meorge W. Perkins
and others will ro over the Maine figure!
and try to apply them to the situation
in other pivotal Ntates.
Republicans and Progressive members
of the carrAinlgn committee have been
making preliminary tests which have
convinced them that the Democrats will
come nowhere near getting the 2.1 per
cent, of the Dull Moose vote of 191
which Ihey luv asserted would elect
Wilson. The Democrats will be lucky,
they say, If they capture more than half
this number ot votes.
Prasrresslvea Retara.
The point the Republicans and Hughes
Progressives make la that In the last few
years most of the Progressives have gone
back to the two older parties ami that
un analysis of the election figuree of
the last two years will show that the
Republicans got the most uf them. Only
In Massachusetts was there anything
like a fair division, and In that Htate
the figures would Indicate that of the
Progressive vote of four years ago the
Republicans last year got f8 per cent.,
while the Democrats got 42 per cent.
Republicans und Hughes Progressives
are pointing to the 6,9(9 votes cast In
Massachusetts last year fur the Progres
slve candidate for Oovernor an giving a
fair Idea of the strength or Matthew
Hale, McCormlck's most Important cap
ture among tha Progressive leaders. Un
der Hale'K leadership, they acsert, 135,000
voters left the party between 1912 and
191,r. In California Kruncls J. Ileuxy,
whose capture l another Democratic
boast, the Republicans point out, two
years ago ran 200.00U votes behind Ills
ticket, headed by Johnson. This condi
tion, say the Republican managers, ob
tains with respect to every .Statu repre
sented on the Democratic campaign com
niltteo hy a Progressive leader, these
States being New York, Massachusetts,
Indiana, New Jersey, Missouri, Califor
nia and Washington.
Senator Lawrence V. Sherman, a
caller at Republican headquarters yes
terday, said President Wilson seemed to
persist In Ignoring how he was elected
four yearn ago ; that he carried not a
slnglo State outside of the South on his
own strength, but won nil the others
merely through the UIvIhIou of the Re
publican vote. "Mr. Wilson," said the
Senator, "errs In saying, as he does,
that the Republican party was put nut
i of power because of failure. The divi
sion grew ma of a factional contest and
the essential principles of the Repub
lican party were the faith of both fac
tions now iinltpd."

EDISON AGAINST AN
8 HOUR DAY SCHEME
Back From Vacation, Inventor
Says Wilson Settled Strike
"Adroitly."
FOR TEN HOURS HIMSELF
Hardest Work on Trip Was to
Find Flower Burroughs
Couldn't Name.
Thomas A. Edison, advocate In his
own work, at least f the eighteen hour
day, except when he feela tartlcularly
coltish and works for twenty hours, got
back to Orange last night from his Joy
rids and camping trip through the Uerk
shires and the Adlrondacks with John
Burroughs, Fred C. Ott and Harvey B.
Wri io. And as the Orange Pip will
say authoritatively when Issued again
neat Saturday, "Mr. Edison reported that
a good time was enjoyed by one and
all."
.s the eight hour legislation crashed
Into existence during Mr. Kdtson's ab
sence In the wilds, he was asked by the
reporters who greeted him Inst night
what he thought of the measure.
Mr. Edison replied that he thought
President Wilson had shown "adroit
ness" In handling th railroad troubles,
the Inventor's Idea belna- that the elcht
hour legislation was only a temporary
settlement of the difficulty, but the best
possible solution If settlement of the
problem were not obtainable by Imme
diate arbitration.
The Presidents method, said Ihe In
ventor, had saved the country from "the
calamity of n strike" and allows for
eight months of Investigation of the rail
road men s claims before final action is
taken.
"The theory that Ihe reduction of the
working day from ten hours to eight
makes for efficiency," Mr, lidlaon said In
reply to a question, "is not, however,
born out by my own experience as an
employer. Regardless of what others
may have found out. It has always been
my experience that where I had been
getting ten-tenths of labor results In a
ten hour day a reduction to an eight
hour day meant that I got only about
even-tenths of labor out nf the day."
Mr. Hdlson did some hard work him
self on his camping trip, he said, and he
then explained that the hard work con
sisted tn trying to find some sort of
flower or tree along the way that John
Hurroughs couldn't name right off the
bat.
Not more than 10 per cent, of Amer
ica's present prosperity Ih the reult of
munitions orders and kindred war con
ditions abroad, Mr. Kdlson believes, and
he Is optimistic regarding the continu
ance or prosperity when the European
war shall have come to an end.

Fairbanks. Republican nominee for
Vice-President, recently has proved him
self a "dry" ndvocate In ("anad.i and a

llanly, the Prohibition Presidential can
didate, declared In an address here to
day Just before the departure of the
Prohibition campaign special on a
month's Western tour.
"Liquor traffic Is a commerce which
strikes at Ihe very heart of all we hold
dear; which debauches men and under
mines the very foundations upon which
the home rests, and Imperils Ihe soclul
order and threatens the moral fibre of
the community Itself," Mr. Itanly quoted
Mr. Fairbanks as ssylng In a speech at
Toronto.
"And yet tile man who uttered that.
In nbeolute control of a great State
convention, refused to iwrmlt It to say
a word in condemnation of that thing,"
continued Mr. Hanly. "And the national
convention that nominated him for Vice
President refused to say a word against
It.
"Mr. Fairbanks also sent as a delegate
to the national convention to represent
the city where he lives n aholesalo
liquor dealer and selected him as chair
man and master of ceremonies the day
his (Falrbanka's) party notified him ot
his nomination to the Vice-Presidency
and within a month actually refused to
sign a remonstrance against licensing
the traffic In his own ward."

In spite of gross receipts of about
ll.'O.OOO for the community masque
"Caliban of the Yellow Sands" at the
Stadium or tho City College during the
Khakespeake Tercentenary Celebration, a
detlclt of about 125,000 now seems prob
able. This Is In the face or the fact that
only a row of thu principal actors re
ceived any compensation, the great ma
jority giving their services free, and
that there wan no runt to pay for the
Stadium. W. Forbes Morgan, Jr., chair
man of the finance committee, has had
nn auditor going over the hooka and
accounts for two weeks In an effort to
straighten out the financial affairs.
Charges ot bad management and ex

CALLS MEASURE A PERIL
Candidate Devotes Day to the
Communities Interested
in Shipping.
Rock la No, Me., Sept. 9. Charles K.
Hughes closed the Maine campaign to
day with a series of attacks on the Dem
ocratic shipping bill In communities tn
which the effects of that measuro are
destined to be felt most seriously.
To-night's speech here mnrked nlto
the vtrtun.1 close of Hughes's first cam
paign tour, for only two address In his
homo State are yet to be delivered.
The Maine fight ended almost literally
In a blase of glory. The nominee made
live speeches to crowds which were both
large and wildly enthusiastic.
When he spoke In villages tho au
diences were composed not only of what
appeared to be the entire local popula
tion but large delegations from nearby
towns and the Intervening farm country.
For the first time Hughes mentioned
by name Co'. Frederick Hale and Herl
.xi. Firm Id, Republican nominees for the
long and sin rt Senatorl.il terms re
lioi'tlvely, and urged support for both.

lint Fight to the Last.
On both ldes the campaign was con
tinued with undiminished vigor and
earncMMss until the -.cry last minute.
Newspapers published to-day a display
advertisement under the caption "Insult
to Maine voters: what Samuel I'nter
myer. President Wilson's Intimate friend
and spokesman, writes In the New York
Hrrntil concerning Maine people"
In the body of the "ad" win quoted nn
extract from one of I'nU'rmyer's des
patches, In which he said: "It may ap
pear ungracious to criticise people, who
are so kindly and hospitable ami who
listen so uncompUlnly tn speeches that
Ihey do not 111 the least understur.il, but
In ail frankness thcro Is no earthly use

nnd Immovable In their views. They ap
pear to know little uliout our foreign pol
icy and to care less Jut now."
Republican Jeadrs urn frankly elated
over the. publication of the t'ntermyer
telegram. They believe It will act as a
boomerang and cost the Democrats
many votes.
There was great rivalry between the
opposing political forces In this town
to-night. The Democrats, acting early,
rented the largest hall, the old skating
rink, which seats 3,u0d persons. The
Republicans then ob'.tlnrd two tents,
which were pitched side hv side. Aftel
flnlshlnr his SDeech In one Hughes re
peated It to the crowd In the other. He
ncath the two canvas tops nearly t.OOO
were packed. .

Before the meeting lteg.ni tin- Re

inarched Hughes's principal attack on
the shipping bill, previous to his
speeches here to-night, was made this
morning at Hath, the centre of the

In part:
"We have lnd a blow aimed at that
Industry by this Administration. The
shipping bill Is a direct menace to the
shipping Interests of our country. No
body should understand that better than
the people of Maine.
"It would be to me an Incredible thing
that In the light of a tariff such n has
been adopted and In the light of the pro
visions of the shipping bill, which has
been enacted under this Administration,
Maine could possibly Indorto such
menaces to American prosperity.
"The shipping bill provides that the
Government through Its adinlulstrutlve.
agency may build or purchase, charter
or lease, foreign built ship". It may dis

Assails night Ilnor Law.
Discussing the Adamson eight hour
law, Mr. Hughes made a statement
which might have been given In nnswor
to the question, "What would you have
done In Wilson's position?"
Demanding action prompted by rea
son, rather than force, Mr. Hughes said:
"This lsiie transcends every Issue be
fore the American penple, because It Is
the fundamental 'ssue whether or not wo
have a government. An Administra
tion that yields to forco :s not an Ad
ministration at all. It Is being driven.
It Is not government Irt accordance with
the principles of American Institutions.
"Now It Is said that that was the only
course that could be taken to avoid n

What n eraen apology ' Where shall
we stand? How much shall we sur

"Is It the a'tltude In this free Govern
ment that if lorce Is applied simply be
cause It Is applied we must surrender to
It? That Is lnd yet necessary In Amer
ican life and if we stand firm by the help
of God It inner will be.
"Hut 1 ilu say this: That If the exec
utlve had stood Mr'mly for the principle
of arbitration prompt, firm and fair, had
stood firmly for investigation before ac

TnKNTOM, Sept. 9. -As primary day

friends of tha candidates for the prin

becoming apparent that the harmony
that Is said to exist In both pnrtlcH Is to
bo found only In the statements which
the more prudent of tho leaders give nut
for publication or which aro being pro
claimed at some of tho local gatherings.
In the beginning of the campaign Sen
ators Colgato and Kdgo outdid Gaston
and Alphonse In their efforts to show
how each preferred tho other; but that
was when IMgc was looking at the
L'nlted States Senatorshlp and the
friends of Murphy anil Stokes were try

his reach nnd that It might be better to
make a try for tho Governorship. Col
gate knew what he wanted and had told
Ktlce so many mouths ago.
So It was that Edge Introduced Col

Colgate's workers are privately cliiirEing
that Kdge repudiated a promise to sup

and still find ourselves progressing, we find our greatest inspiration in the very
mistakes which have cost us and taught us most.
We've led you to expect the utmost and for twenty years have fulfilled that
expectation. -
We entered the field, taking as our motto this up to which we have con
sistently and persistently lived:
"Better Goods for the Same Money or
the Same Goods for Less Money
Than Elsewhere"
Upcn this platform we stand now, as we have stood for 20
years. Our dealings with the public have been uniformly
frank, free, and in its interest.
The good will of this community is our chief asset and
is worth more than the ground we own and the building
which stands upon it.
Everything under our roof is for sale except the Greenhut
name. You can't buy that -but when you do buy, play
safe and buy under its guarantee.
It represents reliability -backed hy an investment of
millions it is wrapped in every bundle; mixed in the very
ink of our advertisements. "Money back on your say-so.
Customers first and always."
Tomorrow is the Opening Day of Our
Twentieth Anniversary Sale
If you've dealt at Greenhut's you know what that means.
If you haven't been a customer of the most remarkable
establishment on the continent -ot a store that has intro
