Fairbanks of Indiana For Congressman A. J. Pennington of Carter County. RAILROAD EMPLOYE'S PROTEST Robert T. Frazier, Jr., of Nashville, Tenn., chairman of the organ ization of the eighty per cent, of railway employes not members ol the brotherhoods, and who arc not benefited by the Adamson wage increase bill, has made an exhaustive report to those he represent which condemns the President in polite but not the less severe terms and which tears the mask from what Mr. Wilson persists in calling ai "eight-hour bill." "We arc very much opposed to the legislation as enacted," reads Mr. Frazier's report, "and to President Wilson recommendations to the Congress, which altogether ignore our right -and sacrifice our chances of betterment in order to grant tremendous increase of wages lo other men already receiving double our average wage. Wf we pushing forward with determination and expect to present at the next session of Congress a strenous appeal for a full and just investigation of the whole railway situation." Referring to the visit of himself" und P. V. Walden to Washington at the time the President was handling the railway controversy, Ml Frazier recites the daily, persistent efforts they made to see the Presi dent, pointing out that never was Mr. Wilson's day fully occupied with the controversy, but, says Mr. Frazier, "altho the President wfi holding lengthy conferences daily with the brotherhood leaders li would not receive your representatives even for n few minutes, t present to him the petition signed by 1 ,500,000 railway employes, anil to ask for justice for the remainder of the unorganized eighty pel cent. The President persisted in his determination to secure the twenty-five per cent, increase, disguised as an "eight-hour day,' for tin 350,000 brotherhood members, and to give no consideration to the 111 terests of the other 1.500,000 railway employes." In a statement to the press Mr. Frazier says, "We are now pre paring petitions asking Congress to investigate the entire subject of railway hours and compensation. The Adamson law simply raised tin wages of the highest class of railway employes. We, the eight per cent, outside the brotherhoods, certainly are opposed to any ad vances to these men if they militate against advances to the lower paid employes. Tn a word, if there is to be legislation on the subject of compensation we want it to cover the whole field fairly and Mui1 ably." According to II. N. Pope, president of the Association of Farm ers' Union Presidents, he has inaugurated a movement looking to concerted effort by the farmers of the country to procure the repeal of the Adamson wage increase bill. Mr. Pope, whose home is in For! Worth. Texas, opposes the increase of wages which President Wilson procured for the members of the railway brotherhoods on the groanr1 that "the farmer will pay the freight." He is convinced that a pow erful and effective movement has been started which will compel Con gress, at the behest of the farmers of the country, to repeal the Wil sou-Adamson bill. "The defenders of the Adamson bill have had much to say about emancipating labor," says Mr. Pope, "but how about enslaving the fanner? If giving to trainmen is a virtue, is not taking from farmers a crime? Has Congress the power to increase the expenses of industry many millions of dollars without someone paying the MM If so, then Congress should immediately assemble and legislate all the people into idleness and wealth. The law is on to Olid in principle and unjust in application." Lexington Leader you sent? him wesT ' 1 son tmt&o W&Sf GOtC-ft HE FELL NTo 60tC1tlllG SOFT.'

Hughes struck out straight from the shoulder when a heckler in his audience at Louisville demanded to know what he woulil have done when the Lusitania was sunk. After some difficulty with thi audience which wanted (o throw the heckler out, Mr. Hughes succeed ed in quieting it and replied: "Sir, I would have had the state de partment, at the very beginning of the administration, se equipped as to command the respect of the world. Next, I would have so eon ducted our affairs in Mexico as to have shown that our words mean! peace and good will and protection of the lives and property of Amer ican citizens. And wk n I said strict accountability' every nalior would have known that 1 meant it; and finally, when notice was pub lished regarding the action threatened I would have made it known in terms unmistakable and unequivocal that we would not tolerate n continuance of diplomatic relations if the threat were carried out.' It is not surprising to learn that the candidate's audience went wild with enthusiasm, that, as one correspondent describes it, "at Mr Hughes' last word there came something more than a roar it bad wilder, more hysterical quality it was like a hysterical yell, and i1 lasted for several minutes, while thousands of men hammered ejn li other on the back and threw their hats in the air and acted like men gone slambang crazy." And the demonstration was tremendous not because of the words, but because his hearers believed that he mean1 what he said and knew that bad he been president, the Lusitanin would never have been sunk. As President Wilson was saying at Indianapolis, almost at the same moment, "speeches are interesting in proportion as the people who hear believe what the speaker says.''

Members of President Wilson's cabi net are ready to do nnythlug to re elect their chief, except resign. Writes n former Princeton man: "At first ra culled him 'W. W.'j then we made It 1 W. W.1" That one term plank In the Demo cratic platform of IMS (I Is more thun likely to hold, ufter all. The Commoner complains that "Mr. Hughes is still muddying the waters." The pious editor may remember the therapeutic effect of the pool of Bethesda when the angel of tin' Lord troubled the waters. If there had been no mud in the waters, Mr. Hryan, they would not have been "muddied" when Mr. Hughes stirred them up. Mil waukee Sentinel. WHAT A PITY!

When President Wilson culled upon the Mexican commissioners at New London lie revived old precedents, but did he wuve the Stars and Stripes? A man In Washington has made a bust of the President, thus anticipat ing Mr. Hughes by several weeks. Discussing the Indorsement by the Democratic convention of Texas of Mr. Wilson's Mi Menu policy, the Houston Post (Dem.) flatly declares: "It is not believed anything like a majority of the people of Texas In dorse our Mexican policy, uud those In a position to know seriously doubt that the platform adopted expressed the real sentiments of the convention Itself." The Omaha Dee couples woeful waste with watchful waiting as a Democratic falling. Boiled down, the best that has been said of President Wllsou's Mexican policy was that he hud good luteu tlons. We've ofteu heard of a road paved with this kind of material. The President Is deceived If he be lieves that the history he hua 'written is not more praiseworthy thuu that which he has made.

He didn't do right." The i. iiiro.nl controversy has Intro duced u moral issue into t lie campaign.
