THE DEMOCRATIC CANDIDATE FOR CONGRESS
: .1 Hon. W. B. Walton, of Grant County, New Mexico FARMERS SIZE UP HUGHES AS "PRETTY GOOD FELLOW" Fargo, N. D. Charles B. Dughea campaigned for the first tlrao among the sturdy farmers of the eastern part of North Dakota end left behind him the reputation of being a "pretty good fellow." He was forced to undergo a critical scrutiny beforo the verdict was giren. . Mr. llughes preached the doctrines of government efficiency. American ism, tariff as protection to the farm ers and preparedness, and In each In stanco won applause, despite the fact that the farmers are not the strong est advocates of the last named Issue. They cheered for preparedness the loudest when Mr. Hughes told them that It meant not militarism, but abil ity to uphold national honor. As they cheered for Mr. Hughes, one broad-shouldered old farmer said "It's because there's something about him that makes you believe no's tell ing the truth." PREPARE FOR THI8. When we contemplate Indus trial nnd commercial conditions wc eco that wc are living In a Tool's paradise. Tho temporary prosperity to which our oppo nents point has been created by the abnormal conditions Inci dent to tho war. With the end of the war there will be the new conditions determined by n new Europe. Millions of men In the trenches will then re turn to work. The energies of n i. it.. .... It vutu vi me now Dciiigerent no tlons highly trained, will then bo turned to production." f' Charles E. Hughes. ft MINI! RAL AITUCATION SERIAL NO. OHM? EDITORIAL COMMENT ? THE R1QHT8 OF AMERICAN The fact Hint the Democratic cam paign mnnagers have booked Secre tary Daniels tor a speech In Maine seems to Indicate thnt they have nbnn doned nil hope of carrying the State and simply don't care what hnppens to the' ticket In tho September election. Senator- J. Ham Lewis, spokes man for the administration, In at tempting to apologize for the Presi dent's mollycoddle expression that we nre "too proud to fight," explains thnt It Is an old Latin quotation. But the people already know that It Is out of date and the expression of a decadent nation. "We don't want to maintain a po litical almshouse," remarked Mr. Hughes to the North Dakota farmers, and a nation applauds him. Ameri cans nre beginning to see n possibility In tho near future of regaining their self-respect. The administration seems to hnve sold everything It could, from the na tion's honor down to tho smnllest rural postmastershlp. Secretary Daniels says this Is to time for politics. And It's no time for Secretary Daniels, either. Senator Lewis, defending the Presi dent on his "too proud to fight" ex pression, Intimates that It was due solely to the Ignorance of his audience that the popular Interpretation that has been put upon It was evolved, and that anyway It didn't menn whnt It appeared to menn. Tho lnttcr state ment can be taken with some degree of confidence, as It Is quite a well known fact that most of the things the President says do. not mean what they are supposed to mean. Secretnry Redfleld has presented another of those living Illustrations of the old adage that "fools rush In where nngcls fenr to tread," with one Importnnt modification. , The differ ence In the Secretary's case Is thnt he walked right In nnd turned around and was kicked right out again. President Wilson's alara clock Is tinging at S o'clock tlieso mornings. Ho can reach out of bed and turn It off the morning of March 5. CITIZENS DO NOT STOP AT THE COAST LINE. "When I say that I am an American citizen. I ought to ssy the proudest thing that any man can say In tills world. Bat you can't have that pride If American citizenry ta a cheap thing, If It Is not worthy of protection this wide world over. There Is no man who could suc cessfully present to an Ameri can community the platform thnt an American citizen's rights stop at the coast line and that beyond that American life Is to be the prey of any marauder who chooses to take It." From a speech of Mr. Hughes In the West. 8 j Hughes In the West. ft rELL HOW WOMEN VOTERS WILL CONTROL POLITICS Congressional Union Leaders Explain the Movement In Opposition to President Wilson. Just how the decision of the wom an's party to oppose President Wilson for re-election Is expected to change the national political situation wns ex plained In a statement by suffrage lenders at the headquarters of the Congressional Onion for Woman's Suf frage at Washington. It wns pointed out that unless he wins the West the defent of Mr. Wil son "seems Inevitable." Needed to Offset Los of Ohio. To counteract the loss of Ohio alone, which, judging from Indications at the primaries, will go with Its twenty-four electoral votes to the Republi can count, the Democrats will have to win In the West. California, with Its thirteen electoral votes; Nevada, with three; Colorado, with six, and Arizona, with three, woman's party representatives here asserted. "In hlaho tho Progressive party Is dissolved," they continue, "so that the Democrats will have to work hard to get any electoral voten there. Illinois Is practically conceded to the Itepuli llenos. In the view of woinnn's part) members, three-fourths or more of thf Progressives there having returned lo the Itepiihlicnn ranks. fit 1WK "Mr Good Mia, Don't You Ever Forti Annhlng?" DENIES A8SAILINQ MR. HUGHES. Percy Mackaye Writes He Never 8aw "Authors' Letter" With HI Name Appended. Percy Macknye, playwright, whose name appeared as one of the signers of the so-called "authors' letter," pub lished In the newspapers last week, knew nothing about the matter until after publication, according to a state ment given out yesterday at Repub lican nntlonnl headquarters. The let ter attacked Charles 13. Hughes' criti cism 6f President Wilson as "non constructive" nnd propounded ten questions for Mr. nughes to answer. In a letter to Mr. Hughes Mr. Macknyo said : "My attention has Just been called to an open letter addressed to you, printed In the New York Herald of August 2, signed by a number of pro fessional writers, among whom my name Is Included. I beg to send you this word, to sny that I did not sign the letter and never saw or heard of tho letter until It was shown to me In print." It was stated nt Republican head quarters that neither Mr. Hughes nor any of his staff had seen the tetter except as It appeared In the newspapers. ,J, PERTINENT PARAGRAPHS J FROM HUGHES' $ Í SPEECHES. $ V I "What Is the President's pol- V i Icy does anyone know? Has A mo executive ever nau a poney ;; ' for more thnn six months on ,t the Mexican question?" ! "If I nm elected President I i' 11 will see to It that American ,', rights In Mexico are respected." $ J '"Hiere Is no mnn who could A successfully present toan Amcr- J lenn community the platform A H thnt an American citizen's ! rights stop at the coast line." g 'Á "We will got through with this old strife between capital J J and labor.

X "We hnve removed from office J 5 men of experience nnd substl- A" tum to Tart I) tuted others to satisfy partisan ' obligations. This must stop." A V 'I' THAT FULL DINNER PAIL. Relying foolishly upon the full din ner pull to accomplish for them what It has so often accomplished for the Republican party, the Democrats pro ceed to pile extravagance upon ex travagance and to make flabby claims of being nt pence, even when we are at war, says the Detroit Journal. For the dinner pall has been filled with munition money, which prpHfntly must bo supplanted by the true" coin age of protected American industry after the war. And while the dinner pnll Is full, observe with what Inflated foods. This administration promised the worker a lower cost of living. But, as a matter of fact, to the worker Democratic prosperity Is a false pros perity. It Is a mirage. Every man with a dinner pall knows that, unless his wages have been Increased 20 per cent, under Democratic munition prosperity, he Is poorer than he was four years ago. For Wilson rents are from 20 to 40 per cent, higher; the Wilson meat the Wilson sugar and tho Wilson woo are 40 per cent, higher, and the Wl son steel and tin and household goods are from 20 to 40 per cent, higher. Tho Wilson bread has advanced faster thnn the Wilson wage, and the Wilson taxes have risen higher than the Wilson prosperity. Democracy may have enriched the munition manufacturer, but baa It enriched the worker, whose cost of living has Increased faster than hla earnings? If tho Administration can re-elecl Itself on the ground that the wofkei la obliged to move out of his homt Into an Inferior one, or has to doubli Up In tenement and to take In board ers to make up .for his loss of eco nomic advnntnjo under the present Increased cost of living, then there It no reason why the Administration should not be as extravagant In 1U taxes as It choosed.
