Republican Nominee Speaks at
Topeka and Kansas City,
Scoring Administration.
. Topeks, Kan.. Sept. 2. Charles E.
Hughes, speaking at , the capital
grounds to , a crowd that Mood
through a shower to listen yesterday,
declared the protection for which he
stood was more than protection in a
commercial sense and embraced pro
tection of American right on land
and sea. of national peace, of Ameri
can industry and against inefficiency
in government.
"I stand for protection in a com
prehensive sense," Mr. Hughes said.
"I use the word to embrace all thatJ
is needed to foster and promote
American enterprise and to better our
conditions." .-.
The nominee said he placed first a
"firm insistence upon all American
righta on land and sea." American
peace, he said, should- be protected
'by our being influential to develop
the instrumentalities of international
This could not be done, he added,
by a. reduction in the standards of
diplomatic intercourse for which he
assailed the present administration.
Must Protect Industry.
Unless American industry were pro
tected by a protective tariff. Mr.
Hughes said, "we shall be a sluggard
in the international race."
Safeguarding public institutions
through administrative work, Mr.
Hughes said, was "a hollow mockery"
unless administration were efficient.
"No corporation could afford to be
run the way this government is," the
nominee said in speaking of his pro
posed executive budget. "We should
cut our coat according to our cloth."
Mr. Hughes repeated his charges
that the present administration had
been more extravagant than any
other in the history of the country.
Half o(,the audience was- women.
One thousand women, members of the
Kansas Hughes alliance, welcomed
the nominee on his arrival at the
grounds. . v i
' Score Administration. '
Kansas City. Mo., Sept. 1. Charles
E. Hughes before ui audience that
filled the great Convention hall here
to its capacity tonight assailed the
administration for its policv toward
ban Domingo and Haiti, while it "pro
fessed inviolability of treaty rights
and the sovereign rights of smaller
states." - s :
Mr. Hughes said:
"I yield to no one in the respect to
the sovereignty of states great or
small, for the inviolability of treaties,
for rights under international law, but
when we speak of the inviolability of
small states and of their rights what
have they to say with respect to the
course of the administration in San
Domingo and Haiti, where today
armed rule exists by our marines on
the soil of these states?
"We want in this country profes
sions to match practice, we want
deeds to match words and we want a
sure policy which will protect the
lives of American citizens. ' "
Program Constructive.
Mr Hughes.again declared for pro
tection for American rights, Ameri
can peace, American industry and for
"a businesslike administration of
He declared that his program was
"constructive; not destructive."
"We are desirous to promote the
success of the national ticket," Mr.
Hughes said, "but we also desire to
have both the senate and the house,
in order that we may have an adminis
tration that will achieve results."
- Mr. Hughes said he did not believe
in putting the government into the
shipping business "to compete with
private owners."
"I do not believe we can accom
plish anything that way," he said.
"What we should do ought to be done
correctly and in line with correct
"We should rescue business from
unnecessary conflict of authority in
this country. We do not need, simply
- because we are practicing our local
and our national independence, to
have irreconcilable conflict of au
thority. That is a misconstruction of
our constitutional system.
So Stat and Nation Can Act,
"We can perfect our instrumentali
ties so that the state can act in its
sphere and the nation can act in its
sphere and so that business will not
. ' be ground between the upper and the
nether millstones.
"I want to say that wherever it can
be done legitimately the path should
be opened for the honest man to have
a chance to go ahead and win a Suc
, cess that hurts no one but benefits all
' within his radius.
"We want a new tone in our life.
I am not one of the kind that is too
proud to fight."
Mr. Hughes left for St. Louis at
II p. m. ,
Mr. Hughes spoke to an audience
that packed the great Convention hall.
A sprinkling of Grand Army veterans
was scattered over the floor. In
