Itself will be flooded with cheap products
from Europe which without a
protective tariff- will literally ruin our
industries, declared the Senator.
He stated that oven now Germany,
France and JJngland wero more efficiently
organized than at the beginning
of the war. All of their energies
are now engaged In carrying on
the war but as soon as this war Is
over this energy will be directed toward
commerclaT supremacy and the
United States, which is a rich and fertile
field, will be the battle ground
of these nations In their fight for
commercial supremacy. The Amerl-I

At the B. & O. depot this afternoon
swarthy men, each with a turban on
his head, with dark eyes peering cnutiously
about, with ever :hc due idea
that "Allah" should be obejcd, woro
everywhere present.
You might have thought that a lilt
of Egypt or the Tripolitan Desert had
been dropped into the depot, and that
Tunis and Constantinople had sent
representatives to a world council;
but 110, they were only the participants
of this great spectacular production

did not stop to give the English-speaking
actors more than a passing glance,
in view of the fact the Arabian people
were coming. To be more suro
there was Miss Sa-an Truax, pretty

Jeffrey, looking artistic with sdt, felt

Sleem Abbott, forgetting that
he is "Sand-Diviner;" and then the
swarthy group of "Sons of the Desert."

was another manner of presenting this
.argument. A strong consistent protective
tariff will be needed, said the
Senator, to prevent this invasion and
subjection of our markets.
He clearly and forcibly illustrated
the fact that the present prosperity
was due wholly io the fact that all
of Europe was engaged in war and
that it was not in any manner due
to any benign influence of the Democratic
administration, as they would
have one believe. The United States,
according to Senator Borah, is at
present alone and triendliness among
nations as a result of the dishonorable
squabble and traffic la our integrity
which has been carried on iu this
war. As to the claim that the present
administration is in any way responsible
for the present prosperity of tne
country he snowed that until the beginning
ot the war in 1914 the railroads
and industries of the nation
were on the verge of disaster, many
were closed and all were depressed until
tho war orders came.
Here the Senator mentioned the
pledge of the Republican party in luis
campaign to place a protective tariff
on uil industries, if they were again
returned to power. He then took up
the much boasted Federal Reserve
Hanking act and after showing that it
had not gone into effect until almost
four months after the war had begun
and that they had refused to place it
In operation during the early paulc
and the closing of tho stock exchange
at tho beginning of the war; and that
it was not a preventative for panics
ns the Democrats would havo the people
Sonator Borah stated that in his
opinion this Federal Reserve Banking
act was one of the most vicious pieces
ot legislation that had been enacted
in the last decade by Congress.
Taking up the administration policy
in Mexico he characterized the Wilsou
policy as an "International Correspondence
Course." Amerlcun lives
and American property in Mexico
should have been protected, stated
the Senator; and he cited a number
of Instances where German and English
citizens had been protected in
Mexico because of the firm stand taken
by their respective governments,
while at the same time Americna lives
had been lost and property rights disregarded
because of the wavering and
inconsistent policy of the administration.
The United States had an effect
woged war on Mexico, declared the
Senator, and he cited the Vera Cruz
incident and the fact that this nation
had interfered simply to oust the Huerta
government. He quoted Secretary
Lane tn the statement that "Huerta
must go" to prove this point.
Senator Borah stated that the Republican
party pledged themselves to
the protection ot Amrelcan lives
at home and abroad.
Many times during the address he
was interrupted for several minutes
by the applause that greeted his
graphic illustrations.
Concluding his talk with a spirited
exhortation to the people to support
the Republican ticket and the Republican
principles be mentioned the
names of Hughes, Robinson, Sutherland
and T. W. Fleming as sterling
examples of the quality of the men
who were candidates this year. The
Senator emphasized the fact that the
election of a Republican president
would be a little benefit unless a Hepublcan
Congress was also elected to
support him and carry out his measures.*
After the meeting had closed with
the addresB of Senator Borah, which
consumed less than an hour, hundreds
of the prominent persons present
came forward and congratulated him
on his able and learned exposition of
the subject and many of the more fair
and unbiased Democrats who were
present came forward and admitted '
that they were Impressed

Then finally the throng had left, thd
English-speaking actors going to their
hotels, the Arabs lined up on their
way to the rooms especially engaged
fortthem. There tbey will flock by

afces toward the East, for no matter
how much theso "sons of the sand"

meat being for the innocent, as they

mutton and rice, but sameness does
