HUGHES AND "BLOODY SHIRT."
Among .the infinite variety of short
comings of the Wilson administra
tion, according to Candidate Hughes,
is that many of the men in positions
of power are from the south, and
that the south has been unduly fa
vored at the expense of the north in
congressional appropriations and in
This is what used to be known as
"waving the bloody shirt" and was
the favorite sport of Republican can
didates during the generation follow
ing the war.
Hughes is the first presidential
candidate in recent years who has
had so low an opllnion of the intelli
gence of the voters as to appeal for
their support on the base and un
patriotic ground of sectionalism.
The fact that the charge that the
Wilson administration has favored
the south is untrue makes the
Hughes, offense doubly unpardon
The 15 southern states embrace
29.5 per cent of the land area of con
tinental United States, 19.4 per cent
of the estimated property value, and
30.9 per cent of the population. They
received in 1916 20.7 per cent of the
government expenditures, -excluding
the District of Columbia and foreign
countries. The estimates fer 1917
give them 19 per cent "
Pres. Wilson has demonstrated
many times that he thinks in terms
of problems and not of sections.,
Harry -Garfield, president of Wil
liams college, son of fontfer Pres.
Garfield, recently made the follow
ing striking statement, which has in
it the ring of true patriotism:
"I have decided to support Mr, Wil
son. His character as a man, his
sympathetic understanding ' of the
problems of the day, his record in
office, his unusual ability, pre-eminently
displayed in meeting and deal
ing with the three great emergencies
of his administation, and the impor
tance of maintaining an uninterrupt
ed policy at this juncture in world af
fairs lead me to believe that the
best interests of our country will be
served in keeping the present admin
istration and its party in office for
- "Permit me to add that the sec
ional issue raised by some of our Re
publican leaders is repugnant 'to the
American spirit and the welfare of
our institutions. Under the circum
stances it offends the sense of fair
dealing with political opponents, it
tends to arouse old fires of passion,
and, if successful, will disunite a peo
ple now united and incidentally de
stroy the party that fosters so calam
itous an issue!"
