CHICAGO Sept. 26. ? The slender mar
gin of one game still keeps Brooklyn In
the van in the gruelling chase of th?
National League pennant. The leaders
had to win to-day. to retain their place
in front, for the defeat in the face of
Philadelphia's victory, the latter, by
virtue of the lesser number of games it
has played, would have taken the lead.
Boston winning. twice, gained half a
Kaitic and now stands 3 games behind
Philadelphia still has nine games to
plnv ? three with Brooklyn and six with
Boston; Brooklyn has remaining eight
games, one with Chicago, three with
Philadelphia and four with N-\v York:
Boston nas eleven Wi. five with .New
York and six with Philadelphia.
The situation is such that Now
in fourth place, still has a physical
chance If it can keep up its great win
ning streak. Mc'.Jraw's men are
games behind Brooklyn. with ten games
to play. Should they take all ten. their
record would be 01 won and (52 lost.
Then if Brooklyn should win only one
of its eight, its record would- be 90 won

That is the principle. I deeply regret
that that principle was not followed, j
The Deadly Parallel.
"I have here the statement of the!
policy of the administration as It uas j
j set forth in the early part of April i
1914. John Llnd was authorized to i
make this statement to a minister rep- !
resenting a foreign power in Mexico: J
'Huerta will be put out if he does not
J get out! That is the preference of
: the President that it be accomplished
| by domestic means if possible, but if it
| cannot be done by domestic means,
| other means adequate for the purpose (
j will be resorted to.'
"That is a declaration of personal
war upon Huerta to he carried to t'ao
conclusion of elimination, despite the
statements that we have made and
the representations that we were to
recognize the sovereignty of Mexico
and not attempt to interfere in the
conduct of her affairs. ' . i
Mr. Hughes' reference to Mr. Her
rick was as follows; i
"In his presence I also desire to :<av
that we have had no one in recent
years who so commended himself to
foreign nation, who so entirely won
their confidence and raised America
in the esteem of a great people by his
executive capacity, who was trusted
perhaps as no diplomat was trusjed
before in a time or great emergency?
I want to say that we have had no di
plomatic representatives reflecting
greater credit upon the country thai

from Ohio."

OMAHA, Neb., Sept. 26. ? Demo- 1
cratic prosperity is due to war, while i
Republican .prosperity grows out of
the normal and peaceful Industries or
the people," declared CharleB W. Fair
banks, Republican nominee for Vice
President in his principal address in
Omaha, today. I
In opening his address Mr. Fair-!
banks declared that graver problem^
tax the Judgment of the American
people than were presented since the
days of Lincoln.
After stalinK that one of the first
things the present administration did
was to overturn the Republican system
of protection, the speaker said:
"The law promptly did lis work . l't
began to undermine confidence. breed
distrust, reduce the public revenue,
I close factories, throw nut of employ
I men i hundreds of thousands of wage
earners, and Increase bread lines in
many parts of the country.
"In due course relief came to us. not
through Memocracy. but through one of
the <-a tacly Kins in the political world
thai dimmed all lhat preceding through
