COUNTY OFFICIAL PAPKK. CHARLES E. HUGHES The nomination of Charles K. Hughes as the standard hearer of the Republican party was strictlv in keeping with the demands of the followers of that party from everv state in the Union. While favorite sons had their state following, this was largely compliment ary and was not taken seriously by the con vention. Judge Hughes was nominated on the third ballot and received every vote except o6j, and these were scattering. On receipt of a telegram announcing, his nomination. Judge Hughes immediately ten dered his resignation from the supreme bench anil accepted the nomination for president. In a telegram ringing with denunciation of ' the administration's foreign policy, bristling with genuine Americanism, which is hound to meet a responsive chord in the heart of every true American, he accepted the nomi nation. The nomination of Judge Hughes by the Republican party is. first of all. an expression for a man of stainless character, high ability, great poise, large experience and unques tioned Americanism. His letter of acceptance covers every issue before our people today, and is worded in such a way that every sentence teems with a thorough knowledge ot the wants and de mands of our country. The letter is a splen did call to arms. It will send a thrill through the nation. It rings with passionate sincerity and radiates the power of aroused American ism. Judge Hughes was born in Glenn Falls, New York, and was 54 years old April 11. His home at present is in Washington, D. C. He served two terms as governor of his native state. He was appointed associate justice of the supreme court October 10. 1910. The onlv criticism brought forward is that the sanctity of the supreme bench should not be invaded. This is very timely answered by the ft .Hewing from the Oregonian : Justice Hughes has conducted himself througnout the 'pre-nomination campaign as becomes a judge; lie has responded to the convention's action as befits an American citizen. If the American people desire an administration which will not fear to assert Amer ican rights everywhere, to protect American citizens at home and abroad, to uphold international law, to defend national honor, to do national duty, to restore national prosperity, to serve all interests and classes alike, they will elect Hughes in November. They are tired and ashamed of timidity, expediency, vacillation, incompetency, extravagance, poverty and little Americanism. tect its border is another thrust home. If Mr. Wilson would not create a condition of order in Mexico, he owed it to the people of the border to protect them from disorder which he countenanced, lie refused to use enough troops to do this. The fact that there were not enough troops for the service without using the national guard did not suggest to Mr. W ilson that he use his influence for an adequate army. He would not help Mexico to order. He would not use the national guard to help the insutVicient forces of the regular annv. He would not help make the army sufficient. Of these things he is reminded by the man he made head of the de facto government in Mexico, a man who remains as head onlv be cause of the recognition Mr. Wilson gives him. With the reminders comes a threat. If the interned expedition be not withdrawn at once it will be attacked. Our government sent the soldiers into Mexico on a fool's errand, known bv everv military man to be a fool's errand as soon as it was discovered how Washington was taking orders from Mexico. It is not doing anything in Mexico except aggravating fool Mexicans who can be an gered hv the presence of foreign troops. It cannot be brought out because that would create a political scandal at the worst possible moment. It cannot go ahead. It cannot come back. It has no mission. It may he at tacked any dav. A weak, wobbling and uncertain policy could come to no other results. The Ameri can government deserves to be reminded of it by Carranza. We shall be in luck if the expedition escapes with merely being foolish and not being disastrous. Chicago Tribune. THE PRESIDENT'S MEXICAN POLICY President Wilson's Mexican policy, certain only in its weakness, has exposed him to Car rau.a's insolence and the country to danger. Mr. Wilson is no match for the whiskered Latin soul as a letter writer. The Latin is the better man at this game, which evidently is the only one Mr. Wilson knows. Carranza in the latest communication of his Latin sentiments to Washington has touched Mr. Wilson neatly and adroitly on two sore spots, lie referred to the .American expedi tion as "interned in Chihuahua," and advised Mr. Wilson that if he would reflect upon the difficulties encountered by the American gov ernment in protecting its frontiers he might appreciate the difficulties the Mexicans met in endeavoring to patrol their side of the line. If there be any way of puncturing Mr. Wil son's confidence in himself and in his love of humanity, these thrusts may have reached the quick. The American expedition is interned in Chi huahua. It is hedged in bv Mexican troops and it is not stirring a foot. That fact is not intended for American comprehension. The American troops cannot be brought out until after the national conventions have been held. It would create too much scandal. The ad ministration has tried to prepare the Ameri can people to believe that the soldiers have dune what they were sent in to do, that the outlaw bandits have been scattered, and that order is restored in Mexico. Xo one has swallowed this. The expedition went in to get Villa, and has not got him. So long as that active organizer is at liberty order is as far away as ever. "His bands inav have scattered to avoid pursuit, but there is no law in Mexico to prevent them reorganizing. And the success with which they raided Columbus and escaped will encourage another attempt. The raid at Clenn Springs indicated this. The reason the troops could not get Villa was because Carranza would not permit them to get him. He would not permit them to receive supplies in the fashion which would allow them to go ahead, and at Ptirral his troops attacked the Americans, bringing their movements to a halt. Since then, deserted by the government in Washington which sent them in, they have been "interned in Shihua hua,'' as Carranza reminds Mr. Wilson. This would be sufficiently humiliating to a government which could feel humiliation, The American government at the present mo ment is beyond such emotion. Carranza's statement that the United States has suffered from raids because it cannot pro- . ALL EYES ON AMERICA Although we have had quarrels with both .Germany and Great Mritain, growing out of the war, and travelers have told us that both belligerents hate us heartily, all eyes are upon us. It is apparent that scarcely a speech is made in the British parliament or a statement issued in Germany without its effect on Amer ica having been preconsidered. In many cases the effect on America seems to be the chief purpose. This has been strikingly illustrated within the last few hours. Certain passages from President Wilson's Charlotte speech have been seized upon by the German press as an indication that the president may again tender his services as a mediator. The con jecture is variously received, but the avidity with which it is discussed shows the prevail ing German interest in the attitude of Amer ica. The various views, puld'utied with per mission of the censor, may have a purpose. In England there is no concealment of inter est in America. Arthur Ponsonby has at tacked the ministers for ignor ng the British people and disregarding the British parlia ment and then "adopting the American press as a platform." Sir Edward Grey, while ad mitting the departure from traditional eti quette, defends it as a necessity because of the practice of German statesmen in giving inter views and statements to the American press. Sir Edward was more successful in defending the manner than the matter of his statements for American consumption. Mr. Ponsonhv argued that the government should announce its definite peace conditions, since its general izations have been twisted by German official dom into threats of extermination of the German people. Sir Edward's reply to the effect that Germany is misleading its people into believing the allies are beaten is un worthy a statesman. It would indicate that the allies are too proud to quit.. Some Ger mans have the same weakness, for they argue that they should not announce their real peace terms lest the allies back out, thinking the Germans are whipped. Pride stands in the way of peace at present. But the fact that both sides are making such efforts to impress America is encouraging. The greatest neutral nation stands ready to help them to a mutual agreement whenever they sav the word. Globe-Democrat. Of course, when the farmer is visited bv the free-trade candidate for office who will ask him to vote for the "immortal principles of free-trade." the candidate will take delight in dispelling the frown that beclouds the in quiring farmer's wife's brow with a satisfac tory explanation of why our free-trade con gress knocked off the duty of 5 cents a dozen on eggs and allowed China in the year V) to ship into this country six million dozen stale, unwholesome hen fruit. Of course he will not. Roosevelt was nominated by the Progress ive party for president, but declined to accept. All that is necessary now to thoroughly unite the Republican party is for Roosevelt to en dorse the candidacy of Hughes. It is gen erally believed that he will support 'the na tional Republican ticket. He at least holds the key to the situation. Should he take this stand, the Progressive party will pass out of existence. fr nTniicTDiti urviKW ItoBfhurg -County court ',,s trad for lirldgn at Happy Yallc).
