Here is another of those Wilson Utter Ml that read well, but fail to indieale Wilson netions: t "So long us tin' power of recognition rests with me the Government of the I'nited States will refuse to extend the hand of welcome to any one who obtains power in a sister repuhlie by treachery and violence." Has Mr. Wilson refused to recognize any govt-nnnciM founded on violence? Ra he refused to do so even since the case of Huerta What was his attitude towards Colonel Menu vide, head of the rcvo government in Peru in February, 19141 Thel y-o BfrKBGKBQK government was founded on assassinat ion. established by assassina tion, and bad not a vestige ot constitutional authority back of t, It came into power on February 4, 1914, when the colonel led thr garrison troops againil the national palace at Una. imprisoned I'rcsi dent Billinghurst. and assassinated the Minster of War and all others who opposed Inn. The facts of the .-asc, were reported to President Wilson by Minister McMillin, who assumed that he would never NfOgnise tin usurper. The President had just previously at Mobile made another of his high-sounding pronouncements about following "the course ol high principnle. not expediency, no matter what the pressure.'" Did he follow the course of liijrli principle with regard to Ucnavides I Or the contrary, lie recognised Uenavides, and his explanation was that "expediency dictated the recognition of the revolutionary govern ment of Peru." Latin diplomats at the tune woe amazed at his action, and now looking back on that action they are once more amazed at the state ment in his acceptance speech. NEW YORK LETTER -! ! -! ! 4 ! -F 4 ! (From Oar Regular Correapondent) HIS HAND ON THE PULSE ''When you start nit to be military, be military and not politi cal." It was Charles Rvana Hughes ipeaking before an audience it Oakland. Cal., on Saturday. Those who were willing to traduce the West in order to construct a east for the Democrats have said thai the West was for peace, cost what it would, that Mr. Wilson's strength there was thai "lie lias kept us out of war." Mr, Hughet has found in his ipeaking tour through the rerj country under dis cussion that the spirit of the West is for national dignity and th maintenance of right it is for a inilitar establishment without eon stant looking to the political main chaiiee. Former President Roose velt's init hut powerful method of dealing w ith Germany when the, latter showed an intention of unpleasant aggressiveness in South America is the sort of spirit admired by true Americans, whether they he in the Kast or 'Vest. That situation brought us close to war. but here was no silly shifting of ground, no endless series of notes, no lives lost. Mr. Roosevelt, by his Arm bearing and significant sug gestions as to our own beet, settled the question involved and allowed Germany to preserve hei dignity, losing none of his own. and gain ing prestige abroad and at home. The Westerners are learning sonn thing about liepublican ideas as to preparedness and our interests abroad, ideas which they lind arc more acceptable than the supine foreign policy and juggling of defence measures that have character ised the recent Administration. Mi-. Hughes is showing by bis refer ences to the militarv situation that he understands what the people want, Pittsburgh Gssette Times. Chairman Claude Kitehin of the Ways and Means Committee de livered bis speech on the omnibus revenue bill duly ti. He withheld it fnbm publication until August 88. Mr. Underwood, author of the present tariff law, adopted similar tactics some time ago. The speeches of these two worthies were unanswerable because they were unavailable during the debates on the revenue bills. Published long after debate had terminated they exhibit statements ridiculous and untrue. The delay in their publication was undoubtedly due to tin fact that the speakers knew their speeches, as delivered, would not stand criticism, and that it would be wise to revise them in such a way as to make them serve for campaign documents. When the charge is on, Mr. Kitehin and Mr. Underwood arc to be found bur rowing in their trenches. In another year the war in Europe will probably he Over, Again the nood of importations including textiles will be loosed on tin American market, unless the Underwood tariff law shall he replaced by a Republican protective tariff. To insure that protection the wage earner must oast his vole for the Republican candidates for Presided' and Congress. His decision in November will be between steady work al good wages, and suffering like that which he underwent din ing the early '90a and tha (brat three months of the present low tarill law. Philadelphia Telegraph. Nearly $18,000,0(10 worth of merchandise was exported from the port of New York on August !th. About 118,090,000 worth of this merchandise consisted of 28 articles coming under the head of war munitions. Nearly 97,600,000 worth consisted of explosives, of ma terial for their manufacture, fuses, cartridges, projectiles, and fire arms. Hut the Democrat jc Campaign Committee bumbles lilting with its silly twaddle that munitions of war make up but ft per cent of our, export trade The American people are not going to trust a Democratic admin istration with the task of protecting American capital and labor They will sec to it lather that revision of the tariff to meet the eco nomic needs of the country is put in the hands of those who have reu' sympathy for and understanding of the psoducing interests of the nation. -Mulfalo ( 'ommcreial.

Statistics compiled on thla Im portant stihject show that for some time the trade of the I'nited Slate with China has steadily decreased, while that of (Jrent llrltaln, Japan and India has steadily and rapidly In creased. China's foreign trade has in creased more than 26 per cent, during the last decade. Notwithstanding that fact, however, the share of this coun try has steadily diminished. In the estimation of some of the ablest Amer ican financiers, the tremendous gold surplus, of the I nlted States should be rapidly converted into loans to those foreign nations which offer espe cial opportunities for the development of the trade of the United Slates, such loans to he attended by conditions en forcible by this government and de vised to insure the consumption of American goods by the borrowers. In a word, there Is In this day an Impera tive need of faraeeing statesmanship, a statesmanship dictated by brond inter ests, sound common wnse and a rea sonable amount of self protection rather than by altruistic theories of measures designed to render vngue service to humanity in general. World's (Jreatest Trust Additional reports regarding the Paris confer ence and further disclosure of the plans of the Allle reveal the purpose of continuing the existing military al liance in the form of a commercial al liance alter peace is declared. It is proposed to adopt by mutual agree ment a system of tariff duties whereby the allied powers will endeavor to pro inote their own trade and to prevent the Central Powers, especially Ger many, from regaining their share of the world's trade which they enjoyed prior to the war. In thlK scheme the I fatted States la to be accorded the place of a "neutral," either enjoying the advanluges of the Allies nor suf fering quite as much disadvantage as the Central powers. Then' is. of course, considerable question as to how far it will !), practicable for th Allies discriminate against the I'nited States and in fuvor of themselves, without intticiting us great injury on the trade of this country as on the Central Powers, which will be the chief object of the discrimination. The plan involves, of course, the abroga tion of all treaties containing a "most favored nation" clause and. with Kim land, Russia, France, Belgium. Hon mania, Servia, and Montenegro, to gether with the Knglish and French colonies, euch enjoying tariff advant ases in tlie markets of all the others the arrangement promises to consti tute the greatest commercial trust the world has ever witnessed Kveii If the word of the Allies, that this gigantic eoaunerele! syndicate is organized primarily for their Joint advantage, secondarily as a punitive measure against their present enemies, and with no purpose whatever to injure the I'nited States, be accepted as lit erary true, it is obvious that in oper ation such a colossal combination can not but work grave injury to the for eign trade of the United States. - ,. t .

THE HUGHES TOUR As Seen It) u Political Reporter In a Ketlew. The olitical pot is boiling so hard it is spilling ail over itself. Mr. Hughes Diplomatic In his cam paign speeches Uov. Hughes has dwelt with emphaBis upon the prospect of the greatest commercial rivalry the world has ever known, following the end of the war. He bus pointed out that the war has served to develop a degree of industrial organization and efficiency hereto unknown among Ku ropean nations. He has portrayed conditions when the probably 30,000, 000 men now cither actually engaged in lighting or devoting their entire en ergies to producing munitions for the armies shall return to their industrial pursuits. It is a keen perception ot these conditions and the Imperative necessity for finding employment foi these great armies after the war which has prompted the diplomatic negotia tions looking to the preemption of the world's trade by the allied powers, in order that peace may not be accom panied by an era of unemployment al most as disastrous as the war Itself in order that foreign markets for the trade of bclllgerenta may be instantly commanded and that, without undue delay, the gold which has been sent abroad to pay for ammunition and military supplies may be regained With the prospect of having, as Chiff Executive, to repreaeut the interests of this country Id the diplomatic nego tiations which wUl attend the abro gation of existing commercial treaties ,ind the substitution of new oiies there fore, Mr. Hughes has doubt leva felt it wuuld nut be diplomatic to dwell al too great length on the trade program of the allied powers. To do so might militate against his subsequeat effort to procure for the Hulled Btates tcrim as little unfavorable us possible. Hut the employment by Ibe silled powers of a system of tariff duties to achieve (arraiiu Inconsiderate it ts doubt ful if history has ever witnessed u greater ingrate than Venustiano Cur ranza. Elevated from the position o outlaw ami bandit to the "de facto government" el republic with 15, NMN population, solely by Presi dent Wilson; his unspeakublc out rages, if not sanctioned ut least ex cused by Mr. Wilson, and his continu ance in office made possible only by encouragement and pampering of th Wilson administration, Carrauza Iiuf 'now shown his monstrous ingratltud" 1 by calling to account his represents tives ut New London and compelling them to enlighten the public after Mr Wilson had carefully and adroitly mis- ! led it regarding the scope and purpost 'of the conference Curranza has per jemptorily ordered his delegates to re- 1 train from all further discussion of the Ulteraal affairs of Mexico and to con SO their deliberations to the two sub jects which he has consented to its considering. So vehement was Cur raaza's communication that it com pelled Cabrera, speaking for himsell and his fellow delegates, publically to explain that none of the internal af fairs of Mexico had been seriously considered and that he and his asso ciates bad merely politely answered questions put them by American dele gates. And his explanation completely upsets the myth so Bedulously circu luted by Mr. Wilson and his friends that the conference was dealing with all Mexico's internal affairs and out lining a program for effecting those reforms of which Mexico Is so glaring ly In need. Time and again, Presi dent Wilson has accepted Currauza's snubs und turned the other cheek, just at a time when it was so essential to Democratic success that the public should be goldbricked regarding the purpose and extent of the New Ixm don conference, and w hen Messrs. Wil son und McAdoo were actually exert ing all their influence to procure the loan which Is essential to avert Car ranza's annihilation; Mr. Carranze rudely tears away the curtain aud ex poses the whole humiliating spectacle to the public gaze and its authors to merited contempt. Well might Mr. Wilson exclsim, "Kt tu Brute!" ( HI IN VI. H ATI'S HIS t'KIMK is the criminal so because he wants to be so? No more wicked fallacy was ever fowled upou a credulous world than this.
