HOKE SMITH SPEAKS
GEORGIA'S FAMOU8 GOVERNOR AT
DISCUSSES POLITICAL ISSUES
Eulogizes Mr. Bryan and Declares
Great Commoner and His Party
Are Championing the Rights
of the People.
At chapel yesterday morning tho
BtudentB wore given another oppor
tunity to hear a man of national repu
tation. Governor Hoke Smith of
Georgia addressed tho students for nn
hour, talking mainly on political ques
tions. His address was interrupted
frequently by applauso, especially loud
whon ho oulogtzcd Mr. Bryan. Gov
ernor Smith Bpoko in part as follows:
It Is a very groat ploasuro for mo
to mcot for tho llrst time a gathering
in your state. I live far from bore,
but wo all havo tho samo problems to
meet, and 1 like to feel that we are
getting clotor together. I believe that
tho highest ideal of government will
only come to our country when a
groat body of people Is found rondy to
support tho right no matter what
party ndvocates it, and also equally
ready to condemn tho wrong by whonii
Difference Between Candidates.
I bollovo that- theo Is a vast differ
ence between tho two candidates now
boforo tho people, which vitally affects
the beBt Interests of tho people. In
tho onrly part of our history wo had a
man who favored tho rights of tho
people, and that man was Mr. Joffer
8on. Lutor, whon tho crisis came, an
other groat man, representing the peo
ple, stopped into tho presidency. I
refer to Abraham Lincoln. It has re
malned for the state of Nebraska, and
for your own city, to furnish tho third
of these great men.
During tho past twolvo years moth
ods of legislation havo grown up
which aro opposod to tho best Inter
ests of tho whole people, and which
tend to give privileges to the fow. I
am not opposed to fairly accumulated
woalth, although the highest concep
tion of life is not found in the ac
cumulation of wealth. Whon I seo
twonty-throo men around a directors'
tablo in Now York city controlling
billions of dollars I cannot help won
dering whether It is duo to great men
tal suporlority, or whothor It Ib due to
Fussy Neckwear Plain Colored Satin Neckwear is
strong right now. I have so many in now all the
prevailing shades green is the best and I don't
"hold you up" just because I have the riaht tnff
$2.50 Budd Hats at Both
lawB mado in the interests of n. fow
Criticizes Mr. Hughes.
Recently I had tho opportunity of
having Govornor Hughes speak In
Chicago, and after I had listened to
him I was more than over convinced
of the Importance of tho election of
Mr. Bryan. Ho declared that Mr. Taft
was tho Ideal man to AIL places which
may become vacant In tho supreme
court of tho United StatOB. Under tho
clrcuniBtancea it seems that Mr. Taft
could hardly hope to succeed bettor
than haB Mr. RoobovoU in tho np
pointmont of federal judges, but I
have not been particularly impressed
that tho namoB of those tower above
thoso previously appointed. It is im
possible that Mr. Bryan should do
worso than has Mr. RoobovoU.
Mr. Hughes ridiculed' Mr. Bryan1 as
a dreamer without knowledge of prac
tical affairs, and declared that tho
declaration in favor of the govern
ment guarantee of bank deposits was
merely another of 'Mr. Bryan's dreams.
Ho seems to have forgotten that Mr.
Fowlor, chairman of tho financial com
mltteo of tho House of Representa
tives, recommended for passage by
Congress a bill containing just the.
ideas now advocated by Mr. Bryan,
and declared that tho government
should either withdraw the support it
nbw gives national banks or go tho
whole way and make deposits safe.
Mr. Hughes attempted to side-step
tho Issuob of this campaign by declar
ing that such problems wero not pres
idential questions. This position is
nothing more than absurd. How aro
such questions that vitally affect the
people to bo submitted for tho action
of tho people if political parties do not
take them up?
The distinguished governor has re
ferred to Mr. Bryan as "Doctor Bryan"
and declares that his election would
bring a panic. I now rofor to
Mr. HugheB ns "Doctor Hughes," and
would like to ask him for his receipt
to guarantee the permanent mainten
ance of prosperity. And then I would
nBk him whore IiIb receipt was last
fall, when tho streotB of hlB own city
wero filled with men who hnd no
brond to feed their starving, children.
Position on Tariff.
Finally, Governor Hughes declared
that the real Issues in this campaign
were tho tariff and tho trusts and de
clared that Mr. Bryan favored freo
trade. Mr. Bryan does not favor free
trade, but he attacks tho present ex
orbitant tnrlff. Mr. HugheB and Mr.
Tnft admit that the tariff is bad, and
if it is bad and has put in the hands
of a fow power to injure tho many,
thon why has it been continued in
power for tho lnst twelve years?
Mr. Hughes said that Mr. Bryan's
plnn of restricting the trusts was the
policy of a dreamer, a man too good
for politick, n man who ought to be in
the pulpit. I would liko to see more
men in politics who are fit to bo in
tho pulpit. There aro some men who,
whenever they think anything high
or noblo, or dream of anything bettor
than it Is now, think it to themselves
and do not daro to think it out loud.
It Is a consolation to at least know
that such men sometimes droam right.
Not Sound Argument.
With tho trained lngenlousness of a
corporation lawyer, Mr. Hughes has
attacked the democratic position In
regard to truslB. Ho said that if any
one created a business he would havo
to stop work until somebody had as
largo a business as he, and that if a
man got a patent ho would havo to
divide it with somebody else. It was
a clover satirical argument such ns
should be presented to people who
can't think. Governor Hughes know
that the plank In the democratic plat
form which he was discussing, did not
and wob not intended to cover such n
proposition. That plank is Intended
simply to prevent great consolidations.
It says nothing to prevent any man
well 50c Both Stores.
from building up a great manufactur
ing bjisiness and building it up just
as large as ho can. It merely prevents
business from being consolidated to
such a point that It becomes danger
ous to tho people of tho country.
Tho refusal of Mr. Taft to publish
tho contributions to tho republican
campaign fund until after tho election
reminds mo of a man who has had
his horso stolen and then goes out
and buys a padlock and carefully locks
up his stables after the horso has
Not Opposed to Wealth.
My ideals of government aro not

hands of a fow men. I have no objec
tion t to-- wealth if every man has an
equal opportunity under the law. I
do not believe, however, that the

Non-Partisan Dlscription of Demo

non-partisan report of tho democratic
convention," 6nyB the September Ar

fessor Edwin Maxey, L. L. D., M. Dip.
Professor Maxey, besides being a mem

Mr. Maxoy's article Is cleverly writ
ten, discussing first the scene of the
Denver convention. The writer thinks
thnt it is significant that the conven
tion further west than any previous
national conventions have ever been
held. It Is the recognition that the
west has become the political battle
ground, noticeable again In the selec
tion of Mr. Bell as temporary chair
man of the convention. It Is the clev
erness of the democratic leaders In
recognizing this fact that may add
man thousand of votes to the ticket
No Desire to Lose Bryan.
Tho Idea that the democratic party
desired to get rid of Mr. Bryan Is not
half nonsense the leda that Bryan
wiM monopolizing the democratic party
Is "humbug." Ninety per cent of the
delegates were for the great common
er and no one could be found to ac
tlvel oppoae him. To got rid of Bry
an would be l!lo tho republican party
ousting Theodore Roosovelt from tho
leadership, for there Is no one who
tepresents the thought nnd feeling of
the rank and file of these two parties
like these two ran. And what of tho
chances of other democratic leaders
to win without Bryan's support? Like
the followers of Roosevelt, tho Bryan
ItOB are not partisans but personal ad
mirers suchuB cannot be controlled by
party machinery nnd delivered to one
another as some commodity.
It must be admitted that Bryan
swayed the Denver convention ns did
Roosevelt the Chicago meeting, but
Bryan carried out the entire program
while Roosevelt left an uncompleted.
"Tho progress of the campaign Is mak
ing It increasingly clear that among
the mistakes mado at the Chicago con
vention, the most costly In Its conse
uenqces Is thnt of President Roose
velt In contenting himself to name the
nominee for the major ofllce and al
lowing the reactionary element tp do
tho rest'. In this respect the Denver
convention shows greater consistency
or in other words 'the stoam roller can
be better u od In paying the way to
election than to nomination.; "
Tho most noticeable feature of the
convention was tho unseating of the
Guffy delegates by tho credential com
mittee. Deciding that tho question
waB one of political expediency, the
committee reported that Guffy and
the corrupting influences of which ho
was a willing agent must be purged
from the party. While Involving ser
ious questions of states rights, yet
there was no doubt In the minds of a
great majority of the delegates that
Guffy's dismissal was neceBsnry for
tor the party's success.
Regarding tho. platform, tho conven
tion acted "with sagacity. The trust
plank is as clear and explicit ns any
one could desire, the antl-injunctrlon
plank furnishes a good .guide for legis
lative action and the direct election ot
United States senators was well-
chosen, The plnnlc regarding guar-1
lanteo of bank deposits', will, on ac
count of its newness bo widely dis
cussed, and probably will add strength
to theplntform. An unwise measure
