I*l * BMP*— 1 [ ' My, How Barnes and the Rest of the Old Guard Lo\ e Charles E. Hughes--Not! It’s hard to tell, of course, what one would do if his party nominated him for the presidency of the United States, but we have been thinking the matter over and we have come to the conclusion that If we were in Charles E. Hughes’ place, we would rather NOT have than HAVE some of the “support" that is being pledged him by the Old Guard. For instance, William Barnes now de clares that he is for Hughes. Barnes has been holding off, but he an nounces in his Albany newspaper that Btaghes’ Detroit speech was just right. Take Barnes’ line of reasoning and you have the reasoning of the Chicago con vention in reluctantly accepting Hughes for the party standard bearer. Barnes admits he never had much use for Hughes because Hughes is a reform er, or was as governor of Barnes' state, and we are not convinced now. as we learn that he has pledged Hughes his “support" he is going to be regular because of anything like “undiluted Americanism.” We ARE convinced he is going to be regular because being regular is quite the thing tbi« year in the ranks of the G. O.P. It wasn't the fact that the Old Guard loved Hughes more that accounted for their swallowing him; it was the fact that they loved both Theodore Roosevelt afcd Woodrow Wilson less, and the idea «# those jobs going to Democrats for an other four years was more than they could endure. The nicest thing remarked about Hughes as a candidate and as his party s nominee was his independence of the or ganization and its bosses, which, it has to be readily admitted, is a lot said in favor of anybody running for office, big or little. Then, however, just as the people were beginning to find out this thing so much in Hughes’ favor, the Old Guard began dropping into line and the dropping ha* been so general that we doubt whether the candidate himself is any too well pleased. There are a lot of things about Hughe? that Barnes docs not like, but the big Idea Is, he is a Republican and the pres idency simply MUST come back to the Republican party, even if the candidate happens to be a man who is acceptable to llieodore Roosevelt, whom Barr.es made defendant in a libel suit. Hughes has made the issue “undiluted Americanism,” and that is his theme at the present time, an he is going over the country. Nobody questions his personal sin cerity. Nobody believes, on the other hand, that it is an “undiluted Americanism" that has drawn to him these member* of the Old Guard. They don’t care a tinker’s cuss, as a matter of fact, about anything in this campaign but PARTY SOLIDARITY and the presidency, and they aren’t going to worry much about what kind of Ameri canism comes with it. None of the Old Guard likes Hughes. Every one of them is in favor, however, of a Republican president. It’s Just the hunger that has mme with four lean years. Hughes looks good, merely, to Bo*s Barnes' inner man. ——— !»■■■—■■ Large crowds are turning out to «oe Mid hear Charles E. Hughes. One of our Close Republican friends remarks: “Yes, Jfcafs the worst part of it.” A Good Start Made In Selecting Farm Ixian Board In another column today »<* print an artu-ie explaining In full the new rural credits law which has lust gone Into effect The board which wlil govern thie now Amerl ' can financial system has been appointed by the president and swurn la and all is now !n readl ue*a for this great experiment in farm .nan* ng The federal farm loan beard has a mighty work bwfor# It.

For two years or more in that capacity he has beer, studying farm problem* ar.d solving them in all pari# of the country, from the rua dowr. estate# of Virginia to the blueberry farms of New England.
