Spedaw to The Washinstn Herai. Youngstown, Ohio. Oct. 6.-James Ken nedy, who for four successive terms rep resented McKinley's old district in Con gress, is an advocate of President Wil son's re-election. A lifelong Republican, he has publicly announced in a letter tc the Youngstown Vindicator his complete abandonment of the Republican party and its national Presidential candidate. The letter is in part as follows: "I think that the Congressional action taken when the Adamson bill was passed is altogether the best piece of legislatior that has been enacted by Congress dur ing my lifetime. It recognizes complete ly for the first time, the right of Con gress under the commerce clause of the Constitution. to fully and completely reg ulate the nation's great highways. It recognizes that the trainmen are pub lic servants, that the public pays their wages. The railroad corporations are only trustees. "The regulation of the public's own roads Is peculiarly the business of the people in America, and every other ques tIon in this campaign dwindles into in significance compared with this isue. Briefly stated, as I conceive it it is: Shall the people at last be permitted i have something to say about that whicb is peculiarly the people'. own business, to-wit: Management and regulation of their public highways? "Congress long ago should have taken charge and completely regulated the In strumente of interstate commeroe, and great highways of the nation between the cities. And this belated movement in the right direction must not be re pudiated now by the people unless they expect to be slaves of 'invisible govern ment' forever." faa 11 *ai .

"The future of the Armenian nation depends upon saving the refugees in Russia. but this requires worldwide assistance for feeding, clothing, hous Ing, and repatriation.

Muskogee is filled with visitors in atendance on the annual fair. and the indications are that the crowd tomorrow will be the largest ever seen here.
