Why Hughes
Finds Wilson
antmg
When the Republicans and former Progressives in Carnegie Hall applauded the emphatic
statements in Mr. Hughes' speech accepting the Republican Presidcnlial nomination, they wer*
endorsing "the real Republican Platform," as one writer calls it. The applause was joined inby
Colonel Roosevelt who sat in a conspicuous box and told reporters, after the meeting, what "an
admirable ipeech" it was and how satisfactory he found the speaker's exposure of Mr. \X ilson s
Mexican Policy and Mr. Wilson's handling of our foreign affairs.
!n THE UTERARY DIGEST for August 12th. is an extensive article setting forth the
views cf both the Republican and Demoeratic press of the nation on this, Mr. Hughes's first im?
portant public utterance since his nomination.
