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
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
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
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
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.

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
