Osterkamp returned Wednes day mornintr from Cedar Rapids, Iowa, where he hed attended the.fun- eral of his mother. Therisa Oster kamp, which was held on the 18th inst. She was past 80 years of age and at one time Uvea in wa-Keeney. Henry visited also in Minnesota. When Mr. Hueb.es criticises the rec ord of the Administration tne spokes men nf Mr. Wilson cry: "What would you have done?" They forget that it Is Mr. Wilson and not air. ttugaes who Is on trial. They forget that four years ago Mr. Wilson criticised xri- Tft nii Mr. Roosevelt through- anil that Mr. Taft onf Mr Roosevelt defended their re spective records, instead of crying "What would you have doner j.ney fnropr these thtnes or they refuse to confess them. They are trying to run away from the record of the Adminis tration and Induce the people to fol low them down some by-path of rhe torical hypothesis, all In the effort to chanere the subject. "p.v their fruit3 ye shall know them." When Mr. Hughes was Gov ernor of New York he did not pay rvs.iiH.ii iehts hv fillinz the public offices with unfit men. He did not champion certain principles during his cnmruiiirn and reoudiate them after he entered office. As Governor, he did not resort to brave and beautiful words as a substitute for firm ana con sistent deeds. He was careful la his o,nnh hut he backed his words with deeds. He did not promise wnai e muiri not nerform. He did not plaster the people with compliments they did not deserve, tie was not -iietr.rici.in. he was not a flatterer, he was not "too proud to fight" for labor or for capital, for the strong or mo weak, when the right was on their side. Mr Wilson's sDokesmen seek to ai rer attention from the attacks Mr Hughes Is making upon the record of the A rl ministration ty asmng mm: "What would you do?" they are un r,cimislv helDlne Mr. Hughes. They are recalling to the memory of the people the record he made tnrougnout Governor of New York. It was then that he first said "public office shall not be a private snap under my administration," and made performance square with prom ise. There Is this aoouc ir. nugura that mnkes him so different from Mr. Wilson: "Hughes means what he says." So It Is that the campaign is really a contest of character oetwreu two men, with sincerity as the differ entiating and deciding factor. The citizens of Wa-Keeney in Tre- rn nnuntT.
