WE ARE NOT TOO PROUD TO EAT Is he the poor man's friend 1 There is only one remedy Vote MtL Vote Right p Right PERMANENT PROSPERITY ESSENTIAL Railway employees who are inclined to vote for President Wil son because of his share in the enactment of legislation ordering an increase of wages for 2J per cent of such employees should keep care fully in mind the effect of Democratic legislation upon railroad em ployment prior to the time when the Kuropean war revived Ameri can industry. On June :10, 1D1;1, prior to the enactment of the I'nderwood tarift law, the number of employes on team rail roads was 1,888,000, On dime 30, 1914, the number had dropped to l,71!),2!ti, and even then the railroads were keeping many men for whim they had no actual need. Figures are not yet available showing the number on the pay roll or. June 30, 191.r, but it is estimated that the number was somewhen between 1,600,000 and 1,700,000. Certain it is that Many of the im portant railroads of the country had discontinued some of t licit trains, had laid off a great many of their employees engaged in tin up-keep of the roads and equipment, and, because of adminiahed traf fie, had cut expenaea wherever possible. During thai period of de pression in American business, there were more miles of railroad in the hands of receivers than ever before in our history. Although the population of the country had been rapidly increasing and new regions opened up to setlement, there was diminution in the con st ruction of new mileage. Railroad employees who have reasonably good memories sap clearly recollect conditions that existed during that period of depress, sion only two or three years age when so many of them were out ol employment and when so many idle men were leaking the jobs of those who had not been dismissed. At that time not a man in the railroad service was in a position to demand or even ask an increase of wages. There were hundreds of thousands of men ready to takt the jobs at lower pay. The rush of business incident to war orders put the railroads in a more prosperous condition and necessitated re employment of those who had been dismissed h was this situation that gave railroad employees an opportunity to demand and enforce an increase of wages. The question now before them is whether they will vote for the continuance of an Administration that brought on an industrial ih presslou affecting the whole country in ordinary times, in return for special legislation which thai Administration enacted in extraordi nary times for (he benefit of a small per cent of the people of the country and to the injury of the great majority. In other words, do the train men of the country desire to trust the destinies of the na tion to the hands of an Administration that disregards the permanent welfaie of all the people, and. under coercion, legislates for the hen fit of a small port ten of tin people) In the spring of 1!M4, the Democratic (Jovernor Clvnn. of New fork sent 11 llleMMllte tn tli, I . u i I I 1 1 r. ututiii, i, ,,( tliul ',.. ll... past fsll and winter the problem of the unemployed has steadily grown more acute and that whatever the state can do to provide work for the unemployed it is morally bound to do." Democratic free trade and the President's slogan of "sharpening of wits" with for cjga labor were then in full swing. Democratic Prosperity in 1914 Below it a sample of the sort of newt that was appear ing in the papers during the months when Mr. Wilson and his party were trying to produce prosperity without the assist ance of munitions oontracts.

President Wilson seeks to Jus tify himself on the ground tliut It was "futile" and dangerous to "stand firmly." This is an nppeul Unit can with equal truth be made by every soldier who runs uway in battle, lie further alleges Ids lielief tliat the i nwse he (laaiaplnastl "has UM sanc tion of the judgment of society In its favor." I remember thirty-odd years ago In the Illuck Illlls a local vigilance commit tee which was in doubt about hangiug a suspected wrougdner. While they were discussing the mutter, t here uppeured over the neighboring divide a frowsy, el derly horseman lu u linen dus ter, who promptly galloped to wurds them waving his arms ii ii I shouting "Hung Idiu ! Hung him!" The leader of the vigi lantes at once usked the frowsy strauger what he knew of (lie facts, whereupon the stranger answered : "I do not kuow any thing about the facts, und I nev er saw the man before; hut there's eleven of you uud ouly one of hlui, aud I believe In ma Jorlty rule !" This Is merely u picturesque paraphrase of w luit Mr. Wilson calls action under "the sanction of society." It ex emplifies the prluciple upon which I'resldeut Wilson has act ed In those public matters, in ternal uud external, where be was threatened with the use of force. Prom the Hpeech of Col ouel Roosevelt ut nettle Creek Michigan, la behalf of Mr Hughes OL. ROOSEVELT APPEALS FOR THE ELECTION OF MR. HUGHES. I appeal to my fellow citizens that they shall elect Mr. Hughes ind repudiate Mr. Wilson be Sanaa only by so doing can they save America from that taint of gross selfishness and cowardice which we owe to Mr. Wilson's substitution of adroit elocution .'or straightforward action. The permanent interests of the Amer ican people lie, not in ease and comfort for the moment, no mat ter how obtained, aa Mr. Wilson would teach us; but In resolute championship of the ideala of national and international dem ocratic duty, and in prepared ness to make this championahip effective by our strength. Presi dent Wilson embodies in his per son that most dangerous doc trine which teaches our people that when fronted with really formidable responsibilities we can shirk trouble and labor and risk, and avoid duty by the sim ple process of drugging our souls with the narcotic of mean ingless phrasemongering. Mr. Hughes, to the exact contrary, embodies the ideal of service rendered through conscientious effort in the face of danger and difficulty. Mr. Wilson turns his words into deeds only if this can be achieved by adroit polit ical maneuvering, by bartering a debauched civil service for con gressional votes on behalf of some measure which he had solemnly promised to oppose. Our own self respect demands that we aupport the man of deeda done in the open against the man of furtive and ahifting political maneuvers; the man of service against the man who whenever opposed by a danger ous foe always takes refuge in empty elocution.
