GOVERNMENT BY FAVOR
rpiIERH Is as much reason for a police
man to refrain from arresting a cltl
ton loyal to the Organlratlon as there Is
for him to pay out his good money to
that Organization's leaders. Tho Organl
ratlon Is a hlcraflglV of favoritism. Tho
police power it has wielded has nlways
been lentontlyvcnforcoJ upon Its members.
Gamblers, vice mongers and luillot-box
sturfers have enjoyed Immunity precisely
In proportion to their closeness to poli
ticians. Tho city omclal's auto can go
faster than the Independent citizen's.
This favoritism has extended to tho
awarding of contracts and Jobs, big and
little. The policemen, maced for his cam
paign contribution, Is netted to perpetuate
this system. Ho Is asked to pay for his
Job, as If It were a political favor. Ho Is
thus no longer free to enforce the law
Impartially. Uo Is tho servant of tho
supporters of tho Organization, and, It ho
discriminates In their favor when It
comes to making arrests It Is only tho
logical result of .maclng. Undoubtedly
a general rovolt In tho forco against this
taxation would have overwhelming popu
lar support, and prevent any "punish
ment" of the mon by tho officials of the
Department of Public Safety.

THIS statement from a long Interview
with a veteran New York Republican
leader who cannot be rattled Is about a

so on through all the ranks of toll.
Such a bald bid for their voto as the
Adamson law will not mako Democrats
of tho Republicans among tho trainmen.
Their Republicanism Is too well grounded
for that. They wore persuaded before
they became Republicans that tho gen

To the Rdltor of the Evening Ledger:
filr Charles Evans Hughes should be
etcctod President because tho United ijtates
needs htm to guldo tho ship of stnta Through
tho troubled waters. As Governor of New
York ho clearly showed by his administra
tion that ho had the Indomitable will, the
Inflexible purpose looking for future good
thirugh present evil.
He has the qualities and executive force
that beget confidence and command success.
He Is In no sense a negative character, but
a man of Iron will power. There Is no vacil
lating, lrresotuto policy In his make-up. Ho
Is Just what tho country needs now.
He has the true courage which Is the
reult of the reasoning of a deep thinker,
and he has a brave mind which Is always
In-pregnable. He would meet danger, not
wait for It Truth Is his standard by which
nil Jhlnim would bo ludired. His appeals
to the voters have been with sincerity of
purpose and honesty of feeling, divesting
himself of all partiality or passion and
prejudice. Ho should be elected and most
assuredly will be.

That Is the way your paragraph (about

I've watched them walk right In front of

It Is the wloked mothers who should be
punished. They should keep their children
out of the Btreeta. The street children are
filthy from neglect and are turned loose Into
tho street because the mother (God save the

NATIONAL POINT OF VIEW
The rising tide for Charles E. Hughes

Nebraska. Tho outpouring at Omaha
signaled the November flood. Omaha Bee.
The real attitude of the Administration
toward business Is revealed by Its hostility
to foreign trade, whenever It lays claim to
support or protection by the Government
Indianapolis News. ..
The problem presented by the South Is
this: It Is a section In which all political
tesues are predetermined. The "solid'
South means simply that it was decided nity
years ago how the South will voto next

the South. There can be no political Issues
In the South. There Is no political ques

"Tou enpnot repeal a surrender" Mr.
Hughes's reply to aheckler at Sioux City

words Is the essential truth of tho matter,

comment to make It, for an intelligent mind,
