Mr. Hughes is an admirable man.
His record of public service is most
gratifying. Mr. Brosseit is not to be
condemned for supporting him. In
his support, however, Mr. Brosseit
might indulge the pleasanter task of
portraying Hughes' qualifications
rather than denounce Wilson's sup
posed incompetency in terms least
justifiable and most lacking in Amer
I intend my vote for Wilson be
cause, aside from his loyalty to the
country, his conduct and service
merit all the support I can give him;
and because I do not know that the
Republican party promises an "em
bargo on arms and foodstuffs." The
ability of a Republican administra
tion to adopt and enforce such a
measure is rather .doubtful, especial
ly when its candidates are being
"backed" by the "Wall street crowd."

WILSON WAS JUSTIFIED. As
suming that you are sincere in your
desire to present to your readers re
liable information on the topics of the
day, and, referring incidentally to
the recent tilt between President
Wilson and one OiLeary, I judge the
following bit 6t published news will
be appreciated by yourself and your
"The American Truth Society is a
hyphenated Catholic-American body
and should follow the example of the
American Federation of Catholic So
cieties and put Catholic first in place
of American. It is Dro-Catholic, prp
Irish and pro-German, and Ameri
can only 'to the extent of working
among Americans for alien interests.
In New Jersey its members united to
re-elect a reputed political faker to
the United States senate because he
had introduced anti-British resolu
tions in congress and thus made a
bid for their support They were
long-distance and safe-distance par
ticipators in the Dublin rising, and.
made capital out of it without hav
ing incurred any of its dangers."
Under such circumstances, it
seems to me, President Wilson was
quite justified in all he said to
O'Leary. Daily Reader.
REGISTERS A PROTEST. When
I see workingmen toiling early and.
late and trying to pay instalments on
a little home to call their own it
makes me think of a story I once
read somewhere about two thirsty
They were walking along a hot,
dusty road and were nearly famished
for water when they came to a pump
on the roadside in front of a big
house that stood on a hill some dis
tance from the road. The tramps got
busy with the pump handle, but they
couldn't make the water come fast
er than a drop at a time, no matter
how hard they pumped. They nearly
broke their backs before they got a
Anyway, they were thankful and
thought they would show their apr
preciation by notifying the people of
the house that the pump was out of
order. But the head of the house
said: "That pump is all right That
is a good pump.- You guys have just
pumped enough water up here to
last us a week."
People will take pride in their lit
tle home they have worked so hard
and denied themselves so much to
own. They don't seem to realize the
amount of wealth their labor has
produced which has been appropri
ated by -some idler. They think they
are working to get themselves a
home, but in reality they are-working
to make some parasite rich; oth
erwise they wouldn't be allowed to
work. Even to live in a back alley
and sleep with dogs one must have
a. master to make money for.
I don't like this skin-game myself,
so I am going to register a protest
by voting for Mr. Benson. C. E.
