WHEELER INVADES jCOOLIOGECOIINTRY Opens Campaign in New Eng-, land on Historic Bos ton Common. In the heart of the Collide? baili wick. on historic Boston Common, lying In the shadow ofthe gilt-domed statehouse, where Coolldge won nation-wide acclaim by his "law-and order” administration, the campaign for the La Follette ticket was opened at noon today by the vice presidential nominee, Senator Wheeler of Mon tana. « ‘ . . In a radio address later in the day and in a speech in Worcester, Mass., tomorrow Senator Wheeler plans to continue his intensive drive, discuss ing campaign issues. He will swing through five of the New England States, delivering three or more ad dresses to the voters each day, his principal speaking centers being Portland. Me.; Manchester. N. H.; Providence. K. I.: New Haven, Conn., and other New England cities. Itinerary In A ague. The itinerary of the Montana Sen ator. after the conclusion of his New England tour, was still vague when he left here last night, due chiefly to uncertainty as to when he will be brought to trial in Montana on charges of accepting fees as an at torney for appearing before a Federal department after his election to the Senate. He said, however, he was making plans with the expectation that the trial would get under way by mid-September. Meantime. Mr. Wheeler added, he would continue stumping in the East, probably in New York State, and perhaps in New Jersey and Pennsyl vania, and in the event his trial is delayed, may spend several weeks campaigning in the East before in vading the West. In a Labor day statement issued last night. Matthew Well, vice presi dent of the American Federation of Labor, declared that it was the “duty of every American wage-earner to consecrate himself to the great task of bringing about the election of La Follette and Wheeler.” “The American Federation of Labor’s non-partisan political policy.” con tinued Mr. Woll, “has this year above fill others demonstrated its practical character and its ability to meet emergencies. It is on the basis of a non-partisan analysis and a refusal to become a part of party organiza tions that we have declared our un swerving support of the Independent ticket. t hnnrr for Workers. "The working people of America have a glorious opportunity this year to redeem government for the masses of the people. Labor day' la- a fitting day for planning to carry forward this work. It is a titling day to put into the Campaign all of the determination and enthusiasm which our great move ment possesses. "This is more than a political cam paign. It is a crusade-Jn behalf of great principles.*’ Senator Ladd of North Dakota, who Is supporting the LaFoMette-Wheeler ticket, in a statement s?ald that “neither of the two old parties need expect any great showing of popular approval in the Northwest at the com ing election.’’ Senator LaFollette, he predicted, “will carry the Northwest hands-down against all comers.” 103-YEAR-OLD MAN TO VOTE FOR DAVIS lived Through Terms of 25 Presi dents Without Casting Bal lot for Either. Special Dispatch to The Star. GREENSBORO. N. C., September 1— Robert Leonard. Greensboro man, has lived to see 19 Presidents of the United States serve, but. at the age of 103 he has never voted for one. He will, however, vote for John W. Davis, Democratic standard bearer, in the November election. Mr. Leonard, asked of course the usual question, “To what do you at tribute your long life?” said he had never taken a drink of liquor. That’s not the only reason for his many years, however, as he also gives “liv ing a clean life” credit of advanced age. Another thing has contributed, at least serving to keep him from any violent end he believes in a “live and let live” policy. Twice married, he has strong ideas on woman and her conduct. His first wife he considered a paragon. “She ploughed the fields and worked the farm while I was away at war.” Leonard served in the Confederate army. He doesn't think so much of modern women, especially the modem girl, with short hair and painted face. He was born in Sumner township, Guilford County, 103 years ago. he «ays, and has lived in the county virtually all his life. He served throughout the Civil War without re ceiving a scratch. He ia able to walk around the streets, not being given to sitting in the chimney corner. He weighs 210 pounds, his hearing Is good, as is his sight and other senses. He is erect, standing or sitting, and loves to joke. During the time he has been eligible to vote the following men have been Presidents; James K, Polk, Zachary Taylor, Millard Fillmore, Franklin Pierce. James Buchanan, Abraham Lincoln. Andrew Jackson. Ulysses S. Grant, Rutherford B. Hayes, James A. Garfield, Chester A. Arthur, Grover Cleveland, Benjamin Harrison, Wil liam McKinley, Theodore Roosevelt, William H. Taft, Woodrow Wilson, Warren O. Harding and Calvin Cool idge. He has heard the news of the as sassination of Lincoln, of Garfield, of McKinley and the attempt at wounding of Roosevelt. He has seen good time* ar*d bad, pajilcs and booms, and heard the political spell binders prophesying disaster or pros perity according to the party they 1 represented. Volstead never hurt him, Mr. Leonard says—made no difference in his Ilf© whatever. Liquor Is what is ruining many young people, he be lieves. "Whisky didn’t use to hurt people,” he said, "but they don’t make it out of the same things now aday." Young people stay up too late at night, he believes. “W T hy they stay up until 10 and 11 o’clock. That’s what Is wrong with people today. I've always gone to bed at 7 o'clock at nights and got up early in the morning.” He doesn't think much of women having the ballot ’“They don’t know what they’re doing,” he said. He would say little more about women voting, although shook hla head In a manner that showed It was better 1 aft unf>id, I Effect of Muiic. From the London Tld-Bit*.

DAVIS ASKS LABOR TO LEAD U. S. INTO i WORLD COUNCILS (Continued from Firat Page.) or against the farm or the factory, the countryside or the city, the East or the West. All our laws must be • so framed and so applied as to leave all men every liberty which is con sistent with the equal liberties of others. This was founded as the land of freedom. We must keep it so. To Secure Nation Again*! War. "And in the third place, we must make the Nation secure against war or the threat of war by adapting our political and commercial policies to the new conditions that exist in the modern world. “The key to the door of equal oppor tunity is education. Now and again a misguided voice is raised to suggest .that we may become over-educated. The theory seems to be that If we educate the brain there will be no one left to do the labor of the hand. It is the same ’mud-sill,’ theory which Abraham Lincoln denounced. "We must not enter on the fatal path of a state monopoly of educa tion, nor should we load upon arr overburdened Government at Washington this educational du ties' which properly belong to the States and cities and local commun ities. But we must sustain, support and strengthen in every way our in dispensible system of public- schools so that every child may be assured of an education, and of such an edu cation as will fit him not only to earn a living but also to live. We must resist every tendency to limit the education of children of any class merely to the manufacture of hands for industry, and every tendency to produce a standardized American. It is the business of the schools to turn out free citizens of the Repub lic and not merely docile human machines. Declaration Against Human Greed. "And if we open wide by. education the door of opportunity to the child, we owe it to him to see that human greed does not close it again. It is a blot upon our good name that child labor should be permitted anywhere in the United States to dwarf the minds and bodies of the future citi zens of the Republic. To stunt the growth of a child in his most critical years: to rob him of his opportunity for education, and make of him a juvenile drudge for mere purposes of profit is a crime against the future of the race. “Os course, the several States can and they should prevent this thing; I would not wish that power taken from them. When Congress had pass ed, in 1916, its first child labor law, however, it became my duly as solici tor general to argue in its favor be fore the Supreme Court of the United States. 1 urged in its support that unless a uniform standard was adopted throughout the United States, the States that wished to legislate against child labor would be deterred because of the economic disadvantage they would suffer in competition with their less progressive neighbors. 1 cal) attention to the fact that for like reasons more than one international conference had been called to bring about equality among the nations on similar subjects. Adriaen Child Labor Amendment. “The reasons which I put forward in support of the law of 1916 seem to me still to obtain and lead me now to favor the ratification of the pend ing child labor amendment. Respon sibility for decision on that subject now rests with the States themselves, but were I a member of a Slate legis lature my vote would be cast to ratify the amendment. “Equality of opportunity, however, is an empty phrase unless all men are left free to grasp It. Not only must laws he just and equal, but we must see that they do not evade those natural rights which neither con gresses nor legislatures, presidents and governors, courts nor commis sions, may rightfully restrict. Free dom of speech, which means the right to sav things that displease as well as the things that please those In power; freedom of assembly, freedom of labor, freedom of the press, free dom In matters of religious belief and practice—these are the rights too sacred to be trifled with. There Is no danger in their exercise. It is the attempt at their suppression that leads to excess or explosion. ■T do not envy the frame of mind which causes some men to charge all who disagree with them with plotting the destruction of the Re public. To judge from some recent utterances, there are those in this country who see a conspiracy when ever three workmen meet together, a riot when their numbers grow- to 10, and a revolution if it reaches a hun dred. Around every corner lurks a Ted,’ and nothing but the utmost vigilance of these self-appointed saviors will rescue the country from the destruction he is plotting. Many- Mistaken Ideas Afloat. “Os course, in a country so diversi fied as ours many mistaken ideas are set afloat. Wild theories of govern ment and of society are thrown up in a population that contains so many sorts of men. But I am one of those who continue to believe that the best MANHATTAN DAYS AND NIGHTS BY HERBERT COREY NEW YORK, August 25. —Testimony to the effect that the average man is honest. Down In the wholesale clothing district— you’ll recognize it if you ever wander down that way about noontime: the pavements are jammed rib-tight with men who do not talk English and do wave their arms —j ß a restaurant patronized by dice shakers. No one thinks of mere ly going In and getting lunch and paying the check. Every patron tries to stick some other patron with his noonday cost. I saw one man eat ninety cents worth and pay seven dollars. "We cash checks for our custom ers,” said the boss. “It’s good busi ness. Keeps ’em coming in.” Saloons in railroad stations used to do the same thing, you know. May be they still do. Well — ‘*ln three years only one man has given me a sour check. And he’ll come back.” Wander down any half darkened street in what used to be called the tenderloin about 10 o’clock any night Three blocks away Broadway roars and flares. The all-night banking es tablishments are busily cashing checks. Their depositors will not be gin to come in until toward daylight. The tributary streets are filled with taxicabs, ranked from curb to curb, lights all on. Big private cars roll noiselessly around cornets. The pave ments of Broadway are filled with the prettiest of pretty girls, all lip sticked, powdered, bobbed. Their clothes are scanty and diaphanous. Their escorts strive to act like men of money. But on the half darkened streets, three blocks away from Broadway, many fattlsh women of middle age walk patiently, exercising fattlsh middle-aged dogs. Three blocks away from Broadway? No. Ten years away. Had to go into a department store to exchange something f?r my wife. Very unwillingly, of course, and with the conviction that all the girl clerks were laughing at me. But 1 went.

C., MONDAV, SEPTEMBER 1, 1924. disinfectant, moral or physical, fresh air. The best defense' against the tyranny of tha few or the des potism of the many is fres and open debate. I prefer liberty, with all Its perils. Including the liberty to make mistakes, to any system by which the Government seeks to set Itself up as . the universal shepherd at us all. “Not the' least of these natural rights Is the right of free contract. Toward grown men and women, re sponsible citizens of the republic, we cannot and we should ndt'take a paternalistic and protective attitude. It is well enough for the Government as an employer to fix by statute the hours of labor of those wTiotn It em ploys. It Is proper and-right that It should pass factory laws,, to protect the health and safety of those who work. Where It -undertakes to regu late, a business, such as transporta tion, it cannot ignore the conditions that surround the labor engaged In that industry. It must defend the future citizenship of the. nation by restrictions on chOd labor, and In view of the burden which the duties of the maternity cast upon them it may exercise a special care for those who are, or are to become, the moth ers of the race. But such cases aside, it should leave adult cases to make their own contracts in their own way as to the terms and conditions on which their labor is to be For Voluntary Wage Contract. “If Government can fix the limit of a day's work in ordinary Industrial and commercial pursuits, it can at its own discretion, make those limits long or short. It should attempt to do neither, but leave the parties to all such contracts to bargain with each other as their mutual benefit requires. The wage contract of the adult, no less than any other con tract, should he a voluntary agree ment. Anything other than this I believe to be Impossible, undesirable, corrupting and tyrannical. It ie only when contracts rest upon consent that those who make them are bound In morals to their observance. When labor bargains on equal terms with its employer, both parties to the con tract owe it to themselves, and owe it to society, to keep and perform with scrupulous honesty the con tracts they have made. “It is because I believe in a llb efty that is above and beyond all governmental control that 1 cannot sympathize with those who would give to congresses and legislatures, or even to a popular majority, the power to do whatever they might see fit. There is no such thing in Amer ica as governmental discretion. It is not the strong who need protec tion against unwise and unjust laws nor against the encroachments or power, it is the weak on whom the burden of such things is most apt to fall. They have the right to call upon the courts to say to every gov ernmental autocrat, great or small. ‘Thus far shall thou go and no further.’ I know judges are human ami that they make many mistakes. Men do not cease to be men simply because you put them In a black silk gown and set them In a judicial chair, but, on the other hand, they do not become prophets or seers or sages simply by being elected sen ators or members of Congress or delegates to a State Legislature. Well Grounded Complaint. “There is one complaint, however, which labor has had cause to make against Judicial process which is well founded. "In my judgment there have been many cases In the past where the writ of injunction has been abused in connection with labor disputes. Injunctions have been issued which by their terms went beyond any proper limit and sought to deprive men of a lawful exercise of indispu table rights. They have been framed with partisan zeal, and their effect has been to cast upon the courts the performance of duties which properly belong to those executive officers of the State or nation who are prima rily charged with the preservation of public peace and public order. It Is not well for society, it is not well for the court, it is not well for the parties themselves, that these things should be so. “My views on this subject are not the result of any newly-formed con viction. When I was your repre sentative In Congress I was given op portunity to take part in framing and defending legislation intended to correct these evils, to limit to its proper functions the writ of injunc tion and to give the right of trial by jury to those who are charged with criminal contempt. I believed then, as I believe now, that such legislation was demanded. If the legislation already passed is not suf ficient guidance in this matter we must write it In plainer terms. Social and Economic Relations. “The age in which we live differs vastly In Its social and economic re lation and In the facts of Its indus trial life from the age In which our Government was founded. The glory of our system has been that it adapts itself to meet the new problems of our ever-changing life. Labor has shared and must continue to share in the responsibility of Its adaption. It still remains to be shown, how ever, whether we ourselyes are able to rise to that new conception of in ternational relations that these changes demand. “This generation needs no further lesson of the peril and destructlve- my last hope If going hatless doesn’t bring out the hair, I’m ditched.” He followed me after I had mum bled an apology and moved on. His condition seemed to prey on him. He wanted me to understand that he was doing this from choice. He said that people were always taking him for a floor-walker.

By the AsßorUfed Pre«*. TOKIO. Japan, September I.—Tokio bows Its head today In solemn re membrance of the catastrophe which a year ago killed more than 100,000 of its citizens and devastated by earthquake and fire 65 per cent of the area of this city of 2.000,000 in habitants. Two minutes before noon today all activity will cease, the tram cars will stop, factory whistles will wall and bells and gongs in scores of Buddhist temples will toll in memory of the victims of one of the greatest nat ural disasters ever visited on civil ized mankind. It was at 11:58 the morning of September 1, 1923, that the first terrifying shock of Tokio’s great earthftiake came, bringing in Its train fire, panic/ death and untold suffering for millions. Many Memorial Services, The municipality itself, dozens of public bodies and temples and shrines of all sects will hold memo rial services. All theatrical per formances of a light character and all music will be suspended for the ! day. Strict frugality will be oh- ! served in food and drink. There will I be no displays of luxury or finery ' in apparel or ornament. Contributions will be taken to aid ! the thousands still suffering wounds. I disease and injury from the effects of ! the disaster. I The purpose of the day’s ohserv- } ance Is to recall to the people the awful nature of this visitation of ' forces outside human control. to j bring homo the necessity of precau- i tions to prevent repetition of the 1 conflagration which followed the i earthquake and which caused, ac cording to experts' estimates. 90 per I cent of the death and property dam- ! age, and to emphasize the necessity I of economy and industry if the city i is to resume Its former place among I the great capitals of the world. Another purpose of the observance | will be to return tnanks to the for- i elgn powers, chief among them thf United States, which came to Japan’s aid In the time of le> distress. Cities Are Rebuilding, The largest of the memorial serv ices under the auspices of the mu nicipality will take rr.ace on the site of the former army clothing depot in ! Honjo ward, near the Summida River, where 34,000 persons were killed by fire and suffocation the aft ernoon of September 1. Services also will be held on the River Summida in j memory of the thousands who per ished in its waters during the panic following the quake. Yokohama, still showing ghastly scars of the catastrophe, will observe a program similar to that in Tokio. While Tokio has been largely rebuilt, temporarily at least, Yokohama's principal business and residential dis tricts are still only a depressing waste of ruins and debris, spotted with temporary buildings of plank and tin, in which the necessary business of the port is carried on. A new Tokio already has arisen on j the ruins of the old. Piles of debris and brick and plaster rubbish are still to be found in sections of the city which were swept by the fire, but the principal streets arc lined again with buildings, in the majority of Instances as good as, or better than, the structures they have re placed. JAPANESE THANK U. S. The First Japanese University of America, New York City, represent ing 60,000 English-speaking Japanese in Tokio, in & communication to the press of the country, recalls the im mediate steps taken in America to aid the stricken people of Nippon and again extends Its thajiks and appre ciation for that act. The communication also reports that Tokio and Yokohoma already are rapidly being reconstructed and returning to normal through Amer ican aid. FLOGGING OF ROBBERS SAID TO BEAT EXECUTION Chinese Take Death Less Fearfully Than the Bamboo, Shang hai Reports. • By the Associated Press. SHANGHAI, September I. —As an outgrowth of an epidemic of law lessness that in recent weeks took the form of almost daily armed rob beries In dwellings and on the streets, the police of Shanghai’s International Settlement again are vigorously ad vocating flogging as a punishment for offenders. As a rule armed robbers convicted in Shanghai’s mixed court are sen tenced to death and are shot after be ing turned over to the Chinese au thorities. The foreign police contend that Chinese criminals fear this pun ishment less than they do corporal punishment, which they assert will deter many criminally inclined from being caught with weapons in their possession. The Chinese press in Shanghai gen erally voices opposition to any re turn to the use of the bamboo. THIRTY STUDENTS APPLY FOR U. S.
