Would Have Saved Lusi

Great Crowd of Notables
Packs Carnegie Hall
to the Roof.
America first nnd America effi
This was the keynote, this the
promise, uttered by Chnrlcs E. Hughes
last evening at Carnegie Hall as he
accepted from the hand of Senator
Warren O. Harding and the Rcpub
(lean convention' notification com
mlttee the party's commission' to lead
the coming battle for the Presidency
With all his old time vigor of utter
ance, -with the same power of analyst
which wns the marvel of those who
faced him as a prosecutor In the old
insurance days, the Republican candi
date, appearing before the public for
the first time since he emerged from
the Judicial cloister, threw himself
last night, as It were, full panoplied
(gain Into the political arena with a
speech that made Col. Theodore Roose
velt, seated opposite to him, olap his
hinds many times in approval. He
mercilessly assailed the Wilson Ad
ministration for the euplneness of Its
foreign policy, pictured its course In
Mexico ns "a confused chapter of
blunder" and pilloried It for Its vacll
latlon and Indecision with respect to
preparedness and other domestic -problems
of vital concern to Americans In
tbli hour of crisis.
Hall Parked to Roof.
Carnegie Hnll, packed to the roof
despite the sweltering heat, cheered
Mr. Hughes again and again aa he
made his telling points. But perhaps
the loudest npplniwc of the evening
dime when, at the very outset of his
speech, he called up the vision of n
new America, to obtain -which he dedi
cated himself, nn America thnt was to
be "conscious of h power, awake to
obligations, erect In self-respect, pre
pared for every emergency, devoted to
the Ideals of peace. Instinct with the
spirit of brotherhood."
"A country," he concluded with an
emphatic gesture that brought his au
ditors to their feet cheering wildly,
"loved by Its citizens with a patriotic
fervor, permitting no division In their
allegiance nnd no rivals In their affec
tion I mean America first and America
Not even In the old days when he as
sailed race track gambling from many
platforms throughout the State did Mr.
Hushes, net a more genuine, spontaneous
outburst of applause man mat wnicn
creeted him ns he drew this picture.
And to make the scene still more Inspir
ing there wan the Colonel, seate-1 with
his family In one of the first tier boxes,
waving and clapping his hands In ap
proval. Pay Tribute to Colonel.
It seemed to be the same Charles E.
Hughes that faced the crowd last night
ao for a whitish tinge which the pass
ing years had given to the whiskers. Aa
he analyzed the shortcomings of the
present Administration, at times with a
subtlety and Irony that brought both
laughter and applause from those In
front of him, he used the same emphatic
gestures that made him such an effective
campaigner before he sought the seclu
sion of the bench.
Mr. Hughes, as had been predicted,
brought the, Mexican Issue sharply to
the fore In his speech. "A sickening
story of barbarities and lust," he called
it, Indicating that he would demand
from Moxlco the performance of Inter
national obligations, "without meddle
some Interference with what does not
concern us."
With respect to our foreign policy,
hs Insisted, t was not the words, but
the strength and resolution behind them
that counted. When he said In this con
nection that there would have been no
sinking of the Lueitanla had It been
en that this country meant what It
(aid his audience cheered uproariously.
There were many times 'ndeed when
the cheers evoked by his onslaught on
th Administration forced him to repeat
a sentence. One of these came when
Mr, Hughes delicately paid a tribute to
Col. Roosevelt by declaring that "under
the pressure of other leadership" the Ad
ministration had been forced to change
it' attitude toward preparedness. In
stinctively the crowd turned toward the
figure Fitting quietly beside his daughter-in-law,
Mrs. Theodore Hoosevelt, Jr., and
let the Colonel t-ee that the applause
with which thin was greeted was meant
' much for him as for the man who had
W'red it, An, .Mr, Hughes smiled and

Thermometers Along the Streets Register from 100 to
105 Cooler Weather Promised To-day High
Humidity Enervating to Workers.
The super nrdeni heat wave that hasl
been making things Mule In the prairie
States drifted Into thli longitude yester
day and tent the official mercury 4 de
gree! higher than It wan on the hottest
preceding day of the summer, or up to
the scorching altitude of 93.
That means that the comparatively re
fined air that only the breeiy prophets
on the 414 foot tower breathe was so re
corded. Down In the bottoms of the
steel and stone sided valleys where
workaday folk go nlong on their close to
earth duties, and where the air Is pretty
well Impregnated with the perspiration
and me breath or the millions, not to
mention the radiating heat from the
walls, the mercury was more ambitious,
marking In some ery hot places more
than 105 and clinging pretty close to 100
almost everywhere there was an ordi
nary mercurial thermometer not too
closely screened from the sun.
After all, the air we breathe at nor
mal altitude Is the kind that should bo
measured to tell how we are suffering
or enjoying ourselves. It Is quite cheer-
rul and pleasant on I'lke s Peak when It
may be mighty hot down on the Colo
rado plains. Ho on Woolworth Peak,
air we do not breathe but would like to.

Capt. Fryatt was the master. Is also

was murdered by the Germans," said
Premier Asquith In the House of Com
mons this afternoon In reply to a ques
tion by Sir Edward Carson, leader of
the Ulster Unionists.
"The British Government." the Pre
mier added, "heard with deep Indigna
tion of thla atrocious crime against the
taw of nations and usage of war. Com
ing as It does contemporaneously with
the lawless cruelties to the population of
Lille and other occupied portions of
France It shows that the German high
commands under the stress of a military
defeat have renewed their policy of ter
rorism. "It Is Impossible to conjecture to what
further atrocities they may proceed, but
the Government desires to repeat most
emphatically their resolve that when the
time comes these crimes shall not go un
punished. "When the time arrives they are de
termined to bring to Justice the criminals,
whoever they may be and whatever their
position. In a case such as this the man
who authorised the system under which
the crime was committed may well be the
moat guilty of all."

New York city faces a danger Incalcu
lably greater than the $.10,000,000 mil
nltlons explosion of last Sunday morn
ing on Black Tom pier. Dally It Is at
the mercy of 2,000,000 pounds of explo
sives that are floated Into lirnvesend
Bay for transshipment to vessels of the
Entente Allies. In lighters of the same
type as that which set the blaze to the
tralnloads on the pier of thu Lehigh
alley itanroau ammunition exceeding in j
quantity the greatest amount that ever ,
has been on n railroad siding on any
day practically Is unleashed In danger-
out proximity to Brooklyn.
Under the laws laid down by the In
terstate Commerce Commission, the
trains must unload within twenty-four
hours the explosives that reach their
piers. Great ns Is the shipment every
week of this destructle energy to Eng
land, France and Russia It In a demon
strated fact that ships cannot carry the
huge hulk as fast as It Is put on rails.
Therefore, to keep within this law, the
munitions are set afloat and accumulate
In Oravesend Bay. Hence New York
goes to sleep every night over an ex
posed mine. What would result should u
spark set fire t this mass detle-t Imag
ination. Zone of Safety .Needed.
Every step that has been taken thus
far In the Federal lnestlgutlon of the
causes of Sunday' explosion has
brought more glaringly into view that
compliance with the present regulations
simply transfers the menace from the
remotely placed railroad yards of New
.lemikv Intn th, lio-iM nf Vu' Ynr-L:
city. It Is admitted by the Investigators
who have adduced the facts here stated
that an Inevitable outcome of their In
qulry will be to give this city a zone of t
safety. What the solution will be none
of the Federal authorities is ready yet
to state.
The a-enues that bring to New Jer-
sey Its 60,000,000 pounds of ammunition

Every city, every town and every lllage
along the routes from the munitions
plants to the unloading yards has de
manded the removal of risk. These let
ters have brought charges that the rail
road companies are defying the law by
storing within the vicinity of these
dwelling places carloads of munitions
for days at a time.
Bo the Investigation of the explosion
has taken a wider scope ; It now cm
braces an Inquiry Into every railroad
that handles this dangerous freight.
