"Tho nomination of Justlc Hughes will reunite all the element In the Re publican party and reiult In the prac tical amalgamation of tha Itepubllcan and the Progressive vote. I confidently predict hie election." Cleonge W. Wlckersham, former At-tomcy-Oeneral of the United Wales, In the foregoing words ave hearty Indorse ment yesterday to the action of the Ite publlcan national convention In Chicago. Not only waa he confident of lleubtlcaii success, as the result of the merging of warring factions, but he predicted mi administration' In which "straight out Americanism" would be tho outstanding feature. "Mr. Hughes stands for a more vigor ous assertion of American rltits than doen the present Administration," he said. Mr. Wlrkersham, who was In Wash ington on Friday and Saturday, denied that hp had seen Mr. Hughes after the latter had received notification of his nomination, He laughed at a report that he had hurried back from the capi tal and had gone straight to Oyster lkiy to confer with Col. Itoosevelt. "That report must have started," he said, "from the fact that my train divides at Jamaica, one section of It going to Oyster Hay. I was not in that tmrt. I went to my own home, Cedarhumt, not to Sagamore Hill." Will .n Visit Itnonevelt. Mr. Wlckersham added that he had no Intention of vIsltlnK tho Colonel, and to another question said ho "did not care to discuss the poselhlllt) " that Mr. Roosevelt would take the stump for Mr. Hughes. In emphasizing bis confidence In the Republican nominee's unwavering Americanism, tho ex-Attorney-General said : "In my opinion the hyphenates will get but cold comfort from him. I nm Inclined to believe, that tho support which sonic of the Clerman newspapers have given him was born of a wih rather than nn expectation.

The London JKifl A'cics says that Hughes's criticism of i President Wilson's foreign iiollcles Is uncompromising, but It Is observable that the one point on which he becomes definite and specific Is concerning Mex ico.

In thof-e days there was no talk of prltn.it y allegiance to a huro- jiean country and secondary allegiance to tho l.nlted States. "I don't like to consider the possi bility of any hyphenated vote," ho re plied to a question, "but anyhow I know that Charles Kvans Hughes stands for straight out Americanism." Mr. Wlckerehain predicted that the majority for Hughes would be a normal Republican majority the kind of ma jority which was normal beforn tho spilt In 1912. Ho believed the overwhelming majority nt the third party members wcio ready to fall hack Into the ranks. KrtT Moose In Desert Herd. Mr Sliye. "Of course," ho said, "there may be a few extremists In tho Progressive pally who will not support Mr. Hughes, but I certainly am of the opinion that the mass of the l'rogrcmlvo voters will support the Republican ticket. The re sult of the election will show that Mr. Huuhes has reunited the party." Mr. Wlckersham did not care to von tin c nn estimate nf the percentage of Progressive extremists who might refuse to he reconciled. He had not analyzed the situation sulllclently for that, but he was sure the number wns small. Mr. Wlckersham also praised Justice Hughes as a citizen, a laiver and a Jurist nnd declared his liollef In Ids eminent lltncss for the Presidency as well as his strength ns a candidate. Also, be , considered the Republican platform an excellent document. Asked to specify Inillvldual planks which might aHr.ict support to Mr. Hughes rather than to Mr. Wilson, he made tho assertion al- I ready quoted ; 1 "I In stands for a more vigorous as sertion of American rights than (he present Administration."
