THE WEEKLY TRIBUNE AND CAPE COUNTY HERALD, FRIDAY MORNING, OCTOBER 13, 1916.
THE GAPE WEEKLY TRIBUNE AND TEE CAPK COUNTY HaU - Erery Friday fry THE CAPE GIRARDEAU PUBLISHING COMPANY. JAMES P. WHITESIDE Editor. , ONE DOLLAR PER SENATOR BEVERIDGE tK AMERICANISM. Albert J. Beveridge, former United gtates. Senator from Indiana, who was a leader of the Progressive movement four years ago, delivered a re markable oration in Chicago a few ago in which he urged all Progressives to vote the Republican ticket. His definition of "Americanism," which was his peroration, was little short of a classic. Senator EeveridgeBaid: Among ourselves America Only means, not that we shall stifle that natural affection for other lands from which our ancestors came, but that we shall realize that America and America Only is our hearthstone and roof tree; that here and here only are our interests, here and here only is our duty, here and here only our hearts abde.ff&?.4y: America Only means that whatever the land of our origin, or the time of our coming to these chores, we shall so think and act and live that our chil dren and children's children shall call America the land of their fathers. Fate is either weaving out of our in America or else we are doomed to us in the end. God grant the first and God avert the last. And if, in our land, a distinctive race is being formed to be known to the world and to history as "the Americans," the only loom on which that fabric can be woven is tolerance. True Americanism means in equal measure freedom of opinion, respect for the opinions of others, and submission in conduct to the opinion of the ma jority while it lasts. tZ22&&iflPlii True Americanism requires that each man, while firmiy holding to his own views, shall concede that others are equally sincere in their views. True Americanism is as broad and kind as it is firm and brave. There is no bigotry in its creed. It is a civic religion of patriotic brotherhood, too noble and general to exclude any group of loyal Americans from its com munion. True Americanism is the expression of that brightest word in the vocabulary of human freedom liberalism. When true Americanism shall have finished its creative work and a new and homogenous people shall appear among mankind, it will form a nation related to every other nation of the Occident. Thus it and it alone will be fitted to lead all the peoples of our blood to that union which must come if western civilization is to advance or even to survive. True, Americanism trusts the common people. It believes that their heart is sound, their conscience clean, their instinct true; and that the only passion of their lives is love of America and devotion to the flag. They have proved these truths by patient toil in peace . ant whole hearted sacri fice in war. Abhorring conflict the common people of America never yet have flinched from battle in the cause of liberty or in the defence of Amer ican rights. m&p: - True Americanism knows that at the fireside of the plain people dwell the strength and hope of the Republic and the promise of the grander America that shall be. On that rock we build our house and though "the flood? come and the winds blow and beat upon that house it shall not fall for it is founded" not on the shifting sands of class, but upon the everlasting rock of all the people's lovaltv and affection for America and for America only. ffi&.m2:.. HUGHES' VISION "I have a great vision, mv fellow citizens of America for the future," says Charles E. Hughes. "It is not an America torn to disorders, it is not an America ruled now lv this force, now by that force; it war; it is not an America where public office is merely ruled for advan tage; it is an America efficient, it is an America prepared, it is an Amer ica maintaining the rights of American peoples on the land and .sea with out fear or favor throughout the world. It is an America that has no secret understandings, no covert intrigues, it is an America with no unstated pur pose, it i an America .standing four prepared, intent on peace and demanding its just rights be lecognized as to lives, property and commerce. "The America that I see ir the future is an America that knows ho to manage its great activities withoi is an America that knows how ti spend public moneys honestly as well as to appropriate them. It is an America that has patriotism in everv bureau of the administration as well ns m any tions. It is an America where all the though having their necessary differences which they peaceably adjust. "It is an America which, having no class antagonisms, feels knit to gether in a splendid national unity, in one great love of country, with ore unswerving lovaltv transcei.ding all people inspired by the ideals of Washington and Lincoln. It is an America first and an America efficient.' THE RAID OF THE GERMAN SUBMARINE The visit of the German .-u'marine to this side of the Atlantic ar.d its raid on shipping vessels, is another remarkable achievement. The repoits that to sink a British ship off '.bp American coast may be considered a violation of International law. are not in keeping with the views held here tofore. When -the Ueutschland was in the Baltimore harbor, a fleet of British war. -ships stationed themselves just beyond the three-mile line to await the sub marine's departure. Tlere was no protest because of their appearance, but American war vessels saw to it that they did not cross the three-mil:: line, which, would have brought the British ships into American waters. The German submarine wlvch sunk the several vessels off Nantuckett Sundav, made its atta-ks in the open sea. The submarine had as nuicn right to fire upon the vesscU as it uoutd Had the submarine b.cn a Bn-.isn ciaft and had the vessels rstroyed been flving the German flag, the result would have been, the same. BRITAIN BOTTLING UP THE NEMS. The International News Service, which furnishes The Tribune its tele graphic news, has been denied the mails and telegraphic facilities of Great Britain, because London believes this service is unfair to the Allies. The only way to be fair to Great Britain, is to be pro-British. William Randolph Hearst, who owns the International News Service, as well as a number of influential newspapers in the United States is the only owner of great English dailies in this country who has attempted to give both sides of the war. The International News Service permitted Berlin to report the German side of the war instead of accepting the in spired buncombe issued in London. But this news Bervice did permit the headquarters of the Entente powers to furnish the claims of the Allies. In debarring the International News Service from the use of the British mails and cables, London is merely following the precedent it established long ago in dealing with neutral nations. Not even the United States is permitted to ship its food products to neutral countries, and the mails Of the United Staes have been rifled with official sanction by the British Gov ernment.. "E?!-. ' M-"l EIJ.T3 " But whether the International News Service is given the London side of the war or not, it is refreshing to know that some American institution had the temcritv to refuse to wear the British label. A foe of Col. Roosevelt last summer excused his sensational remarks upon the theory that "he was crazy with the heaf But as" the tool wave has not subdued the Oyster Bay statesman, it; must be admitted Ss: a matter of course, that .the midsummer explanation !iar J!w- justified.

ARTHOLOT say WILSON HA JOKE PRESIDEN Has Made Souphouse and the Bread Line a Democratic Institution Condemns Underwood Tariff, SAYS PROTECTION IS ONLY WAY TO LASTING PROSPERITY Veteran St. Louis Statesman De nounces U. S. Neutrality and Predicts Landside for Hughes and Lamm. Congressman Richard Earthoidt of St. Louis last night delivered a sting ing rebuke to the Wilson administration, charged the Democratic Congress with breaking faith with the people ar.d predicted a Republican landslide in November. A crowd of approximately 800 men cheered the veteran states man enthusiastically. Mr. Bartholdt addressed a record crowd in the Courthouse at Jackson in the afternoon. The courtroom was jammed, the halls were taxed to capac ity, and Henry Puis, secretary of tl'C Republican County Comnv'ttee, last night stated that more than tr-.rcc nur.dred people were turned away. Congressman Barthold's speech in the county seat was. along the same line of his address here last night. In each instance his" audience was thor oughly in accord with his ideas and showed their appreciation by interri'pt ing his discourse to cheer. His speeches were interspersed with keen witicisms which made the crowds laugh uproarously. But when he reached the main part of his talk he settled down to a discussion of hard facts and he drove home his points in sledge hammer fashion. "Four years ago, the Democrats told you that the cost of living was too high and they asked permission to reduce it," said Mr. Bartholdt," and one year after the Democrats had been in-office, the bread lines were conspicu ous in every city and the souphouse that Democratic institution was again abroad in the land. "The Democratic tariff has always taken the, bread out of the mouth of the American laboring man. It swamps the United States with cheap Euro pean made goods and robs the Amer ican worker of his good salary and permanent work, because without a protective tariff the institutions of this country cannot survive. "The European war saved this na tion from the moit disastrous panic in its history. We were' in the grip of hard times when the war wa; declared and it saved us. Twice before we have been subjected to a condition equally as alarming once under Buchanan and the second time under Cleveland, but both under Democratic administra tions. "The American laboring man who casts his vote for the re-election of Mr. Wilson votes against his. own inter ests, the welfare of his family and his future. "Three reasons have been advanced by our Democratic friends to show why Wilson should be re-elected. First, they say he has kept us out of war; second, the claim of presperity; third, the record of Congress. "None of these reasons is well found ed. It is not true that Mr. Wilson has kept us out of war. The people of this country know that he has start ed two wars with Mexico, one with San Domingo and another with Hayti. "We were prevented from engaging in war with Germany by the resigna tion of William J. Bryan from the Cabinet. Mr. Bryan has said that had the note as originally written been sent to Germany it would have brought war. But this message was rewritten after the resignation of Mr. Bryan, a fact admitted both by Mr. Bryan and Mr. Wilson. "Senator Gore, the Democratic mem ber from Oklahoma, charged on the floor of the United States Senate that Mr. Wilson had expressed a desire to enter the war on the part of the Al lies because it would hasten peace. And this statement has never been spcifically denied. "These facts show that Wilson is not entitled to credit for keeping the United States out of war. He has done everything within his power to force war upon us. He has been the tool of the war party in the United States, made up of the ammunition in terests on one side and on the other by men of pro-British sympathies. Yet while this crisis was pending, hun dreds of thousands of Americans sent telegrams to Washington urging the members of the two houses to prevent war. They merely petitioned their own representatives in Congress to do what they thought was right, and in reply were denounced as disloyal Americans by Mr. Wilson" and his ad visers. The. party that denies the American people the right to be heard on any vital question is un-Ame(can and that alone should defeat it. "Our prosperity, such as it is, will end the rcry moment peace is declared in Eurepe. Th? RrfubHegn p .vy pre. IB IS IE N T fers normal prosperity to abnormal prosperity. The Democratic prosperity is based on the tears and h.?j ilacbr of our kinsmen across the sea. T;iev new ask re-election because they have helped to increase the number of widows and orphans, to add ts ti c maimed and the dying on the battle fields of Europe.' "Prosperity, the kind that we need I is the kind that comes through a pro- teen years under Repc hi '; -i ndr. It is th? knid that come through a pro tective tariff, which favor? the Amer ican farmer, the Amfri.vm M:nu!c turer and the Amorvan r..etvu'.r..c. ar-'i that is the kind of prtvp v ity you will get if you vote the Republican ticket on November 7. "Four years ago, the Democrats cried out about the high cost of living. They said if given a chance, they would adjust the tariff and lower the cost of living. But they found they could not keep both ends of the see saw up in the air at the same time. But some of you believed they would do what they promised and you voted accordingly, and you now realize what a mistake you made. "Under the Republican protective tariff the United States received more than $50,000,000 in tariff alone on su gar. Then you were able to buy twenty-six pounds of sugar for one dollar. Now you pay one dollar for ten pounds. That is the way the Demo crats cut down the high cost of living. "When the cost of living reached its critical stage in this country and the bread line and soup house appeared, Mr. Wilson was asked to straighten out the situation. He replied: 'Keep quiet. This is only psychological.' "The p' in psychological as used by Mr. Wilson is silent. But the incident reminds me of a story about my old friend Billy Baxter. He came down to Washington one time to interview a friend. This friend was a Congress man ,who insisted on talking right in your face and when he used the letter 'p,' he always spat in your face. While talking to Billy Baxter that time, he used the phrase 'perpetual possession of the Philippines.' 'When he finished,' said Billy Baxter,' I felt like I had been in a natatorium.' "Mr. Wilson's explanatiou makes me feel like Billy Baxter. He believes, and a great many other Democrats seem to uphold his contention, that a flight of rhetoric is just as substantial as a piece of roast beef. "Mr. Wilson is pointing with pride to the fact that our experts last year were $4,000,000,000. But he docs not mention the fact that the increase in the cost of living has cost the Ameri can people a great deal more than $4,000,000,000. The Increase in petro leum in the past year was $192,000, 000. The advance in the cost of meat and breadstuffs have been virtually one hundred per cent. Never before have we had to pay so much to live, and there can be no relief so long as we live under free trade, which the Underfeed bll gve us. "As soon as the war is over, we will face a crisis without n parallel in the j history f this country. Our prosper ity among those who make up the war party of the East will be over, and the cost of living will remain unchanged. Under the present tariff, our factories rrrtist close; the munition plants will turn out their men when the war ends, and the nation will be without work, but the cost of living will continue to climb. This wil lbe the direct result of Democratic mismanagement. "But as bad as the outlook at pres ent is, it may be some worse. No one knows what Mr. Wilson will favor to morrow, which is a Democratic char acteristic. Not in the history of the party has it chosen the same para mount issue in two campaigns. "Mr. Wilson is not able to say to day what he will stand for tomorrow. Four years ago, he favored one term for the President, but he is now run ing for a second term. Four years ago he favored the exemption of tolls to American ships passing through the Panama Canal, which the United States built at a cost of $400,000,000. Yet within six months after his elec tion, he yielded to the demand of Great Britain to charge American ships just as much as we do British vessels passing through the canal. "And four years ago he was for free trade. The Underwood bill, which removed the protective tariff, adopted by the Republican party, and gave us free trade. Then came the soup house, the closed factory, and now he is for a tariff commission, which means that he would like to go back to a protec tive tariff. "His most famous utterance since he entered the White House was the statement that he possessed a one track mind. That reminded me of the one-track railroad, which ends on a turn table, and this is not unlike Mr. Wilson, who has been running in a circle ever since his election. "Going back to the war in Europe and the efforts of Mr. Wilson to in volve the United States, I want to say that he has violated the injunction of George Washington, who urged the nation to remain neutral in all wars in order that when peace was declared we could remain friends of the bel ligerents. "Mr. Wilson has supported the Brit ish side of the contest and at the same time permitted Great Britain to rifle our mails, seize our ships and boy cott our people. The mails have al ways been held invoilate and even the smallest nation has protected it with ail the force it possessed. Internation al law does not permit one nation to open the mails of another, but it does give a neutral the right to ship non contraband to any nation that is en gaged in war. "Mr. Wilson has not permitted non contraband cargoes from this country to reach Germany. If this right had been enforced, there would have been no submarine controversy and the Lu sitania disaster would have been avert ed. Yet in the face of the insults of fered this Government by Great Brit ain, now comes the statement that she will not issue a passport to an Ameri can who possesses a German name. Never before in the history, of this Government has she permitted any ele ment of her citizenship to be imposed upon by a foreign power. Under the Wilson regime our flag has been rob bed of all that it stands for, and the honor for which our forefathers died has been wantonly sacrificed. "If the Republican party had played as false as the Democratic administra tion has been, I would be ashamed to look my friends in the face. "The American people arc too hon orable to indorse the ruinous record of the Democratic party during the past three and one-half years. A Republi can landslide is due and it will be recorded in November. Charles Evans Hughes is an American for America and he will sweep the country. Judge Henry Lamm will carry Missouri and the wrongs that have been visited upon a happy and contented nation will be everlastingly righted." BARB WIRE CITS AND WOUNDS Are troublesome to cure.

MINGO WINS BATTLE ROYAL; McCOY LOST Big Crowd Cheers Shoe-shine aa He AdrainisUrs the Knock-out Dropi. Victor Miller, chunky and clever catch -as-catch-can wrestler, last night won two falls in succession from P. G. McCoy, his taller and husky opponent. Mingo Edwards, the sparring artist, who is shoe shiner and porter at Mike O'Connel's St. Charles barber shop, was returned victor in a five-man battle-royal that was staged as a pre liminary free-for-all. The two bouts took place before a large crowd of men and boys last night in the Opera House, and the prelim inary match in which Mingo won his laurels, was virtually turned into the premier match of the evening. Five local colored fisticuff artists were turned loose in a ring together and the referee announced that bar ring a blow below the belt, anything goes the last man to remain stand ing alive or on his feet was to.be win ner. Each pugilist was fighting four op ponents, and the house returned ova tion after oration for the work that the husky mitt-swingers did. Mingo won by an introduction of science into the melee. He crouched in a comer of the squared-ring and wait ed his chance. A3 opportunity pre sented itself, he unlimbered his deadly right for a full arm swing and landed on the neck of some fighting gentle man. "One by one, as sure and as deadly as a German Krupp gun that he had studied and read about, his sledge hammer blows were sent home, and one by one, he limbered the men who started out in the same ring with him, Finally he had no more opponents to face, and he had battled his way to victory. The wrestling bout was replete with unexpected surprises. Miller is the athlete who came to the Cape last week with the carnival company. As a part of the carnival, he met al comers on the wrestling mat with a proposition that if anyone should stay on the mat for ten minutes without having had his shoulders pinned to the floor, he would receive So from the management. McCoy, a St. Louisan, met him and stayed. Altogether McCoy collected about $25 from the snow manage ment. The success he had suggested a finish match between the two young giants. A purse of $30 was made up for the winner and the match was staged. After 41 minutes and 30 seconds. Mil ler, the showman, turned McCoy over for the first time by the use of a chancery bar and scissor hold. The secend bout did not last as long, and Miller secured his second hold by the use of a reverse Nelson and a chin hold. As an additional preliminary match, two young men named Cameron and Koch went two rounds with the gloves to a draw battle. BROWNS TO DRAFT BIG ELAM VANGILDER i Negotiations Virtually Are Closed -Will Farm Him to League Team. That negotiations virtually have been completed for the drafting of Elam Vangilder, Joe Barenkamp's prodigy, from the Capahas to the St. Louis Browns yesterday became known. Charles Barrett, scout for the Brown's has had an eye on the big Cape County farm boy for a long time, and he has selected this winter as the time when he will make connections with Elam's signature and farm him out to one of the feeders for the Browns' ball club. Barenkamp has been endeavoring for several days to arrange a game for the Capahas so that Barrett could have a last look at the tall corn grow er's methods, but he has not met with success in tying up with any team close to the Cape. The deal with Bar rett is expected to be closed within the next few weeks. Vangilder, when signed by the Browns, wil! be sent to one of the teams of a middle western association, where he will be introduced to his first real professional baseball. He will be given an opportunity to develop under constant care and coaching, so that he may be stepping into the box of a big league park within a comparatively short time. Vangilder comes from a baseball community. Southeast Missouri al ready has given several big baseball players to the game and Vangilder's friends predict a futufe for him that will equal any who have gone out of the State to ply baseball. j LEGAL NOTICES.
