WHY "AMERICANISM"?
The Hugh- Campaign Service asked Dr. Hill to explain to cer
tain inquirers why " Anicririiiiisin " is a dominant, praetienl issue in
this campaign, and not merely a campaign slogan, and this is what lit
ays:
Never, until the Administration of President W'ilsn nile it ne
eessary, was it thought desirable to make " Americanism " the rally
ing-cry of an eleetornl campaign; for. until now, there was never a
need for it.
The occasion has arisen from the disposil ion to substitute politi
cal expediency for that protection of the national honor nml of tin
rights of citizenship which has in the pnst b i regarded us the first
duty of our Government. Onr President bus boasted of bis "reckles
enthusiasm for humanity" but our citizens, in period of nominal
peace, have perished by the hundred without a serious attempt to savt
them from violence, robbery, and death. It is for that reason that Wi
arc now speaking of "Americanism," and it is for that reason 1linl
we need to consider anew what it really means.
" Americanism " is not I new ideal, it is our inherited tradition
What is it that distinctively marks the American spirit?
Our fathers felt that there was in human personality something
sacred, something which mere physical force ought to respect, and
that governments should be made to respect it. The fundamental
need of a human being is liberty protected by law. How, after it
was won by the overthrow of absolutism and the establishment of in
dependence, could it be defended from the arrogance and aggression
of mere power T
The answer our fathers gave to that question was a constitutional
nnioji for the "common defense;" a mutual pledge that the risrht ol
the individual citizen to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiues?
should be regarded as a sacred right, for the defense of which tin
whole force of the nation must if necessary be exercised.
This spirit has not animated the present Administration at Wash
ington. Its main purpose has been to keep itself in power. To that
end it is ready to placi a elaas intercut, a sectional interest, or tin
fear of a foreign power before its duty to stand for the equal light
of all regardless of mere numbers and voting power, and for tin
rights of American citizens wherever they may be.
It is a fact of record that, between bis inaugural ion and the pns
ent time the President of the United States, during a period when
American eitiniena ware being robbed, outraged, and murdered it
Mexico, and shot through and drowned on the high seas, has made o
score of public addresses in which he spoke of our duties towan
Mexico and other countries, of peace, of the '1;ig. of the army and
navy, and of our place and influence among the nations; but nevei
once, in a single statement to the public or to Congress, so far as 1
have been able to find, has he in these addresses affirmed the duty ol
the Government of the United States to protect lives or the property
of the citizens of this country. It is this absence of a sense of responsi
bility that has brought the word "Americanism" into this campaign
The people have come to feel that, while the Administration boast.'
of devotion to the abstract idea of humanity, there is no effective
protection of the American citizen as such. On the contrary the)
have seen the guarantees for the security of their business, the
property, and their lives, upon which they bad formerly relied, grad
ually disappear through disregard.
THE HUGHES NATIONAL COLLEGE LEAGUE
To a quarter of a million men throughout the colleges of th.
country a letter lias been sent by the Hughes National College League,
asking for active support of Mr. Hughes and condemning the present
Administration.
The Hughes National College League is an organisation founded
not to convert the college men of the country to Republican, but to
gain the active support of every Republican college man in electing
the Republican national ticket. At the head of the organization is
Senator Theodore K. Burton of Ohio, George lb-oka m Coaapton of
New York is chairman of the Executive Committee and national cam
paign manager.
"Thousands of college men." said Mr. ComptOH yesterday, "who
should do political work, are doing nothing. In the crisis which con
fronts the country we are going to have them take off their coats ami
work for Hughes, ami we will show them how to do it in a practical
and effective way."
The Executive Committee of the League includes Karl Hehr
Roscoe 8. Conkling, Frederick W. Fairbanks, Hamilton Fish, Jr.
Klihu Root, Jr., and Lloyd P. Striker. On the advisory committee art
William Howard Taft, Theodore Roosevelt, George Wharton Pepper.
Pres. William H. P. Faunee of Brown Hniveraity, Charles Scribnci
Senator Sherman id Illinois, Senator Sutherland of Utah, National
Chairman William R. Willooz, Repreaentatira Bawley of Oregon
former Governor Hadlty of Missouri, Governor Cttaa, Whitman of
New York, and Robert Bacon,
IS ALL FAIR IN POLITICS'.'
Mr. Qontpera is politically a free, trader. He is also Chairman
of the Committee on Reductions of the Interna tiaani cigar If thai
Union, which has regularly for twenty years passed resolutions in
favor of a protective tariff.

liver the labor vote."

To have good health, the digestion,
heart, lungs und kidneys must work
perfectly. When there is anything
wrong with the digestion, heart or
lungs, a very noticeable pain or dis
tress gives prompt warning. Kidney
trouble Is more easily overlooked,
however, and too often gains a long
start. Hut kidney trouble does give
early signs, and backache, headache,
dizzy spells, rheumatic pains, too fre
quent, scanty or painful urination
should not be neglected. When these
warnings appear, use Moan's Kidney
Pills, the reliable, successful, strongly-recommended
kidney remedy. As
sist the medicine by taking things eas
ier, reducing the diet and the use of
liquors. A severe attack of kidney dis
ease may be avoided. Doan's Kidney
Pills have won the grateful praise of
Maysville people. Head this Maysvllle
resident's endorsement?

and the passage of the kidney secre
tions were scanty and painful. Hav
