Taroma, Wash., Aug. IS. Charles
E. Hughes, republican presidential
nominee, told an audience in the Ta
coma stadium today that he would
not shring from war in enforcing
American rights "abroad.
Mr. Hughes read the democratic
program of 1912, declaring for the
protection of American rights abroad.
"I wanf that made real," the nominee
said. "I do not think in making that
real that we encounter the danger of
war. I would not shrink from it if
we did in performing the obvious
Mr. Hughes confined his remarks
almost wholly to what he termed the
need for a protective tariff. "I pro
pose a wise tariff without abuses, ' he
said, "but frankly a tariff to build up
and maintain American industries."
Mr. Hughes reviewed democratic
tariff legislation and the democratic
platform plank of 1912 relating to the
As to Cost of Living.
"Our opponents said they would re
duce the cost of living," he said. "Be
hold the result.
"Through an unfortunate develop
ment in the republican party, which
is now happily healed, our opponents
got into power, and they did not re
duce the cost of living. We don't
propose that the short-comings of the
administration with respect to the
protection of American industries
shall be forgotten. They want to for
get them. They think that the.
European war, like charity, covers a
multitude of sins."
Mr. Hughes referred to a statement
issued by Secretary McAdoo soon
after the war started in 1914, in which
it was announced that $500,000,000 in
emergency currency was available to
relieve financial stress.
To Still the Fear.
"Our oponents. had to resort, to a
republican measure of precaution, the
Vreeland law," he said, "to still the
fear that their policy had engendered
among the people of this country. It
was that republican measure that took
us through a critical period." .
Reverting to the tariff, Mr. Hughes
asked-, why . the democratic . party
wanted a tariff commission.
-"Do they want a commission to
frame a tariff for revenue only?" he
asked. "I want a tariff commission
for the purpose of carrying outthe
protective principle, not block it."
The antidumping provision of the
pending revenue bill was discussed by
Mr. Hughes. "I have had some ex
perience with statutes," he said, "and
if that statute works it will be a tre
menduous surprise to me."
Mr. Hughes left at 4:40 this after
noon for Seattle to fill a speaking en

TWO MEN DROWNED
IN SEWER OUTLET
Employes of Carter Lake Club
Lose Their Lives Near River
ILL LUCE IN ONE FAMILY
Two employes of the Carter Lake
club were drowned Monday in the
sewer pumping station. One was
Frank Nusco and the other was the
gate keeper, E. P. Griggs.
These two men were sent Monday
morning to open up the sewer which
runs from the Carter Lake club to
the Missouri river. When they did
not return their friends arid the di
rectors of the club became apprehen
sive and a search was instituted with
the result that their clothes were
found yesterday morning on the edge
of the sewer pit, in East Omaha.
The circumstances of the drowning
were most revolting and horrible.
The pumping house is a square con
crete tower standing just north of
the railroad right-of-way in East
Omaha. The lower part is a collect
ing and settling tank for the sewage
which is then lifted about fifteen feet
and allowed to run through a pipe to
the Missouri river. Above the tank
is a pump room with an electric dyna
mo, mounted on a platform. A trap
door leads down to the tank below.
It is supposed that the men found
it necessary to go down into the tank
to make some repairs and they
changed from their street clothes to
old overalls, leaving their better
clothes outside. It is supposed that
while working in the tank they were
overcome, falling in and drowning.
Ho search was made until they had
been in the tank for more than twelve
hours, and when Jack Murray, Six
teenth and Corby streets, who went
out with Fred Flodman, superinten
dent of dock and boats at the Carter
Lake club, went down into the tank
he Iwas nearly overcome by the fumes
and had to stop work.
Officers Go Into Water.
Murray and Officers Joe Baughman
and Charles Plotts stripped off and
went down into the foul water reek
ing with poisonous sewer gas to hunt
for the bodies with grappling hooks.
The body of Nusco was recovered
by Murray, while Baughman and
Plotts were away and when they re
turned with the oxygen helmet and
could endure the fumes for more than
a moment at a time the body of
Grigg was brought up.
The pump house is in a peculiarly
inaccessible location, entirely sur
rounded with the stagnant waters of
the marsh at the lower end of Car
ter lake and can be reached only by
way of the railroad embankment.
When the bodies were recovered it
was necessary to bring them in on a
railroad handcar for a distance of
half a mile before they could be
transferred to an automobile ambu
lance and taken to the coroner's mor
gue. Series of Misfortunes.
Much misfortune has befallen the
Griggs family in the last few weeks.
The Griggs came here from Nash
ville, Tenn., several months ago. Dur
ing the summer Mr. Griggs had been
gatekeeper at the Carter Lake club,
and his wife, secretary.
While standing in front of the club
grounds' entrance three weeks ago a
laundry wagon struck her. She was
thrown against the running board of
an automobile an suffered a com
pound fracture of the leg, her condi
tion being serious. The shock result
ing from her husband's tragic death
served to add to the seriousness of
About a week ago Mr. Griggs re
ceived word from Nashville that one
of his sisters was seriously injured
in an accident.
A sad feature of the case was that
Mr. Griggs was ixpecting a visit from
his mother in the near future. A spei
cial delivery letter was received a
couple of days ago telling of the in
tended visit. Later another letter came
saying that .the trip had been post
poned for the time being.
Frank Nusco, or Frank Mias, as
the police reported his name, worked
for the Rod and Gun club and lived
at 2624 North Sixteenth street. He
was 25 years old.

IS MEASURE OF CAUTION
Washington,' Aug. 15. Orders for
the remaining mobilized units of the
National Guard to proceed to the
border liavt.. been suspended by the
War department. No official expla
nation has been made, but it is known
that the delicacy of the railroad strike
situation has been the moving consid
ration. , --
The suspension of the orders to the
troops, which would havt moved
some 25,000 men to the border, should
not be taken as an indication that the
president's negotiations with the
railroad brotherhoods and the rail
road managers have taken an un
favorable turn, but is a measure of
caution. It is considered highly un
desirable that all the remaining
guardsmen should be moved to the
border while there was a possibility
of a railroad strike in which they
might be called upon to preserve or
der throughout some of the states.
The suspension of the orders pre
vents the immediate movement of the
troops from Kentucky, Ohio and Ver
mont, and the movement of all other
mobilized units which were to have
gone forward as soon as they were
It is clear the suspension is not a
revocation of the orders, and that if
the strike situation clears up the
troops will be moved to the border.
The official explanation of the
change at the War department is that
difficulties of transportation and
equipment developed and made a de-J
