essary to use sarcasm or ridicule to

Any one who writes for public pe
rusal should be willing to grant to
others the freedom of their .opinion
and willing to accept such criticism
or commendation as their views may
command. Nor do I believe Mr. Coch
ran would publish an article of an in
sulting nature in his book. Also I
believe it is better to correct an er
roneous belief at its inception than
to wait until it has taken root. M.
There has been some criticism
made against the Wilson adminis
tration by Forum writers. What
faults have these persons charged up
against Wilson? If they have some
reason, let them come out with it.
Hasn't Wilson been doing his best
for the welfare. of this country' If
some of these critics will imagine
themselves in Wilson's place they
would be mighty careful with their
criticism. Think how Wilson has
been slammed right and left, unmer
cifully, by the land-grabbing news
papers in trying to persuade him to
declare war. But did they succeed?
No, he was too wise for them. How
many men could go through what
Wilson did and yet keep the country
out of war. Not many, I venture.
Those who are looking for some
thing to knock Wilson with have
found something new. They say
Wilson is purposely preventing the
return of the militia, fearing that if
they do come back they will not vote
for him because he had ordered them
to the border. That's rot. If he was
looking for votes all he had to do was
to declare war and nearly all the
newspapers in the country would pat
him on the back and use all their in
fluence to have him elected again.
Everybody was kicking for pre
paredness. Well, they got it Those
patriotic volunteers feel it.
Some critics criticize Wilson for
no other reason sar? boosting an
other. If everybody will reflect care
fully before voting, Wilson will sure
ly be elected. M. Feldman.
HUGHES' SPEECH. I read the
speech of acceptance by the Hon.
Judge Hughes. It has a splendid
tone and is so full of promises. A
little mixture of Teddy's thunder was
injected into it, it appears to me.
What a wonderful future must be
in store for us if the Hon. Judge
Hughes should be fortunate enough
to be elected over Wilson this fall.
He has promised much and I trust
that if successful he will make his
promises stand up as well as Pres.
Mr. Hughes' criticism of Pres. Wil
son is only natural. He cannot use
the full dinner pail bunk on the peo
ple this time, so he and the G. 0. P.
must resort to other means to in
terest the voter against one of the
greatest presidents this country has
Roosevelt did not state that he was
delighted with Judge Hughes'
speech. He used the term admirable,
and, coming from him, that is plen
ty. Amen! J. L.
RELIGIOUS AGITATORS. Will
the religious agitators who are mo

the pages of their favorite publica

The Day Book readers have intellec

time of religious narrowness or re
