Washington. June 10.-Charles
Ryans Hughes resigned to-day from
the Supreme Bench and accepted the
Republican nomination for President.
In a telegram denouncing the admin
istration's foreign policies and de
claring for a "dominant, thorough
going Americanism," he gave nls de
cision to Chairman Harding, of the
Republican National Convention,
and broke the long silence which had
kept the leaders of his party in the
dark as to his attitude on what they
termed the great issues of the day.
"I have not desired the nomina
tion," tho telegram began. "I have
witched to remain on the bench. But
In thlB critical period of our national
history 1 recognize that it ls your
right to summon and that lt is my
paramount duty to respond."
Within an hour after Chairman
Harding had notified him of his nom
ination Mr. Hughes had accepted the
call. His resignation, a scant two
line letter without a superfluous
word, was on its way to tho White
House from tho Hughes home before
th 1 nominee had dispatched the mes
sage of acceptance. President Wil
son accopted the resignation In a re
ply almost as brief.
When copies of both the telegram
to Chicago and thc lotter of resigna
tion had boon made public, Mr.
Hughes left his homo for htH cus
tomary afternoon walk. Soon after
his return Lawrence Creen, his pri
vate secretary, told him of Col.
Roosevelt's conditional declination of
tho Progressive nomination. Mr.
Hughes sent word to Inquirers that
he had nothing to say concerning it.

sented. Tho nomination was made
and tho convention adjourned before

my duty, under the circumstances, to

Col. Roosevelt's answer to the

Now York, Jun? ll.-The New
York delegates to tho Progrossivo
Convention at Chicago returned on a
special train with anything but una
nimity of feeling as to whnt course
their party should pursue. It seem
ed to bc tho consensus of opinion,
howevor, that if Col. Roosevelt makes
positive his tentativo rofusal to bo a
candidate for tho Presidency, some
other man should be solected by tho
national executive committeo of tho
party to fill the vacancy.
John J. O'Connell, chairman of the
county committee, declared tho Pro

principles" for which it has stood.
"This muon ls certain," ho said,
"the national executive committee of
our party hereafter will not permit
any man not n member of tho com
