We cherish no Illusions. We know

prsvented by pious wishes..
Wa denounce all plots and conspira

During this critical period the only
danger of war has lain in the weak
course of the administration.
The nation has no policy of aggres
sion toward Mexico. We have no de
sire for any part of her territory.
Wa propose that in the competitive
struggle that is about to come tho
American worklngman shall not suffer.
This representative gathering Is a
happy augury. It means the strength
of reunion. It means that the party of
Lincoln is restored, alert, effective.
Tha deatlnoa of tha administration
with Mexico constitute a confused!
chapter of blunders, it Is a record
which cannot bo examined without a
profound ssnss of humiliation.
We must take Vera Cruz to get Huer

Destroying tho government of Huerta,

The administration was to seize and
punish Villa for his outrage on our soil.

In only to retire.

IN PREPAREDNESS THE AD
MINISTRATION HAS FOL
LOWED, NOT LED.
In the demand for reasonable
preparedness tho administration
has foUowcd, not led. Thoso
who demanded mora adequate
forces were first described as
"nervous and excited." Only
about a year and a half ago we
were told that the question of
preparedness was not a pressing
one; that tho country had been
misinformed. Later, under tho
pressure of other leadership, this
attltudo was changed. Tho ad
ministration, It was said, had
"learned something," and itmado
a belated demand for an In
creased army. Even then tho
demand was not prosecuted con
sistently and tho pressure ex
erted on congress with respect
to other administrative measured
was notably absent
Wo aro told that the defects re
vealed by tho present mobiliza
tion aro duo to tho "system." But
It was precisely such plain de
fects that under tho constant
warnings of recent years, with
tbo whole world intent on mili
tary concerns, should havo been
studied and rectified. Tho ad-
V ministration has failed to dis
charge its responsibilities. Ap
parently It Is now seeking to
meet political exigencies by its
naval program. But It has im
posed upon the country an In
cpmpetent naval administration.
From Mr. Hughes' Speech of
EVER FORGET ANYTHINGf
Had this government by tha
use of both Informal and formal
diplomatlo opportunities left no
doubt that when we said "strict
accountability" we meant pro
- cisely what we said and that wa
should unhesitatingly vindicate
that position I am confident
that there would havo been no
destruction of American lives by
the sinking of the Lualtania.j
There wo had ample notice in
fact, published notice. Further
more, we knew the situation, and
wa did not require specifio no
tice. Instead of whittling away
our formal atatements by equiv
ocal conversations, wa needed
the straight, direct and decisive
representations which every dip
lomat and foreign office would
understand. I believe that in
this way we should havo been
spared the repeated assaults on
American lives. Moreover, a firm
American policy would have been
'strongly supported by our people
and tho opportunities for the de
velopment of bitter feeling would
have been vastly reduced. From
, Mr. Hughes' Speech of Accept
ance. THECOMPELLING PERORA
TION TO MR. HUGHES'
Wa live In a fateful hour. In
a true sense, the contest for tha
preservation of tha Nation is
never ended. We must still be
Imbued with tha spirit of herolo
sacrifice which gave us our
country and brought us safely
through tha days of civil war.
We renew our pledge to the an
cient ideals of Individual liberty,
of opportunity denied to none
because of race or creed, of un
swerving loyalty. Wo have a
vision of America prepared and
secure- strong and just- equal
to her tasks; an exemplar of the
capacity and efficiency of a free
people. I indorse the platform
adopted by 'the Convention and
accept its nomination.
FAVORS WOMAN SUFFRAGE.
Some time ago a consideration
of our economic conditions and
tendencies, of tho position of
women in gainful occupations,
of tho nature and courso of tbo
demand, led mo to the conclu
sion that tho granting of suf
frago to women is inevitable
Opposition may delay, but in
my Judgment cannot defeat this
movement If women aro to
havo tho vote, as I bellevo they
aro, it seems to mo entirely
clear that In the Interest of tho
public llfo of this country tho
contest should ho ended prompt
ly. I favor tho voto for women.
From Mr. Hughes' Speech of
ADEQUATE FEDERAL WORK
I stand for adequate federal
workmen's compensation laws,
dealing not only with tho em
ployees of government, but with
those employees who are engag
ed In Interstate commerce, and
are subject to tbo hazard of In
Jury, so, that thoso activities
which aro within the sphere of
tho constitutional authority of
congress may be dealt with un

Jeys of the Poor.
Tho happiest people In the world
are tho poor. Without attempting to
stifle tho ambition 'for self-advancement,
religion has always taught men
to be content with' their lot and
shown tho folly of relying upon posses
sions ns the key to happiness. Our
materialistic day has worshiped finan
cial success, and by hearing this doc
trine constantly preached, those who
are poor have been made to feel them
selves unfortunate and condemned to

Probably more persons become
discouraged over continued ill healfb
than from any other causer The rec
ords of every city will bear this out
Others, who probably suffered as
much physical pain and agony -as
their mentally weaker brothers, will
not give up the fight, but will do all
in their power to gain relief.
Difficulties are the test of the man.
Hundreds of people testify daily
that they had suffered years of tor

cure them. When they heard of the
wonders that Tanlac, the new recon
structive tonic, was working, they
did not lose this opportunity be
aided simply because other prepara
tions had failed, It'is this "stick-to-it-ive-ness"
that has won happiness
The truth of this is clearly brought
out by the fact that business men,

Improper food, poor digestion, ov
er eating and lack of healthful exer
cise have cut short lives of thousands
from the lowest to the highest in the
land. Tanlac, the famous vegetable
preparation, has proven invaluable
for stomach troubles, which, after al
are the base of most ills. Tanlac
overcomes poor digestion, restores
normal appetite, brings good restful
sleep, and banishes that tired, nerv
ous feeling in short, it restores the
stomach to the habit of doing a full
day's work and doing it well.
