women's national golf tourney at
Belmont, Mass., no Chipagoans being

Omaha, Sept. 6. Pres. Wilson an
nounced here that he has appointed
Major General Goethals, the man
who built the Panama canal, as
chairman of the board which will in
vestigate the workings of the eight
hour railroad law passed by congress
to avert a railroad strike.
The other two members of the
board named by Pres. Wilson are
Geo. Rublee, federal trade commis
sioner, a Progressiver and Interstate
Commissioner Clark, who before his
appointment to the interstate com
mission was a representative of the
conductors' "brotherhood.
Mi. Wilson spoke here last night.
His audience was so wild in its greet
ing and in its approval of his words'
that periods of cheering minutes
long were frequent.
He declared that America is as
ready to fightas any other nation,
but that the cause must be just. He
suggested a peace league of nations
and told his hearers he "did not care
a peppercorn about the verdict of
1916 as compared with the verdicfcof
the next 25 years."
For minutes the crowd, which
overflowed the big Omaha audito
rium and was banked for blocks
around the building, would call:
"Who kept us out of war Wilson."
"Who prevented the strike Wilson."
"Who saved the nation WilBon."

My chief reason for voting for
Wilson is because I believe him to
be a thorough-going progressive, be
cause he has made an un.equaled
record in the last three years in se
curing the passage of legislation em
bodying ideas for which earnest pro
gressives have long been working,
because in no administration since I
can remember have the old special
and privileged interests been so ut
terly without influence at Washing
ton as they have been since' Mr. Wil
son occupied the, white house; be
cause, as Thomas A. Edison says, if
Mr. Wilson blunders, he always blun
ders forward; because, in short, he
is a ciear-neaded, steady-banded
leader who can be trustedto take the
broadly human and democratic at
titude toward public questions. I
trust him beyond any other leader to
meet the stormy events that are be
