Giving the Whole Case Away. ,
"Every intelligent man knows that the
eight-hour principle was not involved in the
dispute except insofar as it furnished a basis
for an increase of wages. The Tribune."
Every intelligent man knows that the eight
hour principle hat no meaning except nine or
ten hours' pay for eight hours' work. When
did the eight-hour movement mean anything
elt? New York World. , . ,
The New York World is the leading and most
powerful democratic organ in the country, all the
others In their pleas for democratic policies and
championship '- of democratic candidates being
merely followers' and imitators. In this brief
paragraph (he World gives the whole case away
aa President Wilson has attempted to make It in
justification of the Adamjon force bill.
. '.'Every intelligent man knows," says the
World, "that the eight-hour principle has no
meaning except nine or ten hours' pay. for eight
hours' work," and' it adds, "When did the eight-
hour movement mean anything else?" . .
i Then the president is wrong when he pretends
that this is a question of reducing the work day
to', eight hours, for "every intelligent ' man
knows" now that the law does not purport to cut
the working day of any train man by an hour or
a minute, but merely to start his overtime pay at
the end of the eighth hour.
, Then the president is likewise wrong when he
says the question involved is not arbitrable,, for
"every intelligent man knows" that the matter of
wages whether nine or ten hours' pay shall be
given for eight hours' work can be and is regu
larly determined by arbitration. ,
If the wage increase law hat no meaning, at
the World frankly admits, except ten hours' pay
for eight hours' work, then the president's justi
fication of hit action in forcing the bill through
congress without investigation or deliberate di
cutsion while the labor .leaders held the. stop
watch, falls completely to the ground.
. Greece at Last a Belligerent . , . ,
. Greece will formally enter the war, after hav
ing been informally and unwillingly a participant
for longer than a year. This was inevitable from
the time Bulgaria cast its lot with the Teutonic
allies and assisted in putting Serbia to the sword.
The situation then developed left Greece but lit
tle choice. Cynical observers have suggested
that King Constantine, In hit efforts to maintain
neutrality, was actuated more by family reasons
than humanitarian motives. The king did suc
ceed, though, in holding in check those of hit
tubjectt who were eager to enter the war, and
hat played a pretty but losing game of politics
with Venizelos. Declaring war on Bulgaria, with
Macedonia as a pretext, 'will serve all the pur
poses of the Entente Allies, may preserve the
king's standing in both Athens and Berlin, and
will get the Greekt at. deeply, into the trenchet
at if the entire outside world were included in
the proclamation. 1 The Scandinavians, Dutch and
Spanish are now the only European nations who
are not engaged in the great war. If they are
permitted to remain out It will be one of the
further wonders of the affair, ' - - ,

This it the season in years before the war

Hughes Talks to the Workert,
. Mr. Hughet hat been going directly among
the workert of the country, to personally carry
his message of hope and good counsel to them.
This week he has spent in great factory centers,
where he has talked to men in overalls, present
ing hit viewt of present-day problems in easily
understood terms. ' Particularly he hat defended
the republican principle of -protective tariff, a
doctrine the men who work in the big iron millt
are especially concerned in. These" men welt
know what the end of the war may mean to the
industry in which they are engaged.; With the
tree trade ideal of President Wilson, expressed
in hit Baltimore speech to the grain men, iq ef
fect, it means lower wages for the workmen, or
a shut-down for the employers. ' - '
I Over the whole labor situation looms the
shadow, of. the European war. This great con
flict lifted American industry but of the stagna
tion into which it had been thrust by the Under
wood tariff, but the activity thus fostered cannot
be looked on. at other than temporary. With
the end of the war will come conditions against
which we mutt be prepared. This is well, under
stood by the, worklngmen of this: country. Not
a labor convention ha 'deliberated since the. war
commenced but has taken some action' against
the time when the war it ended, and America
will-more than ever need protectionagainst Eu
ropean competition.- y
Mr. Hughes presents -the logic of facts and
experience. The workmen should ' know in
which direction their interest lies." Their wages
and standard of life have oeen established under
republiean.-, policiet, ..and only to can be main

Unfinished Business with. Japan. , ,
. Notice lias been served ion. the United States
that the coming successor to. Baron Chinda at
ambassador for Japan is to fenew "conversations"
with the secretary of state as to the admission of
Japanese to the United States on terms of equal
ity with Europeans. Our immigration and alien
land laws have been the subject of Japan's grave
disapproval for many years, and a teriout dispute
wat once averted through the Root-Takahira
"gentleman's agreement" .Thit' did not end the
controversy, which involves a point that is rather
delicate for approach from our tide.
The principle involved in our exclusion aett
it well supported,. and. js not in:. dispute. ; Japan's
objection is to being classed with Chinese and
Hindus; the Nipponese set . up to be Caucasian,
and claim full share of the rights and courtetiet
extended to Caucasians by the United States.
The claim brings in the ethnological aspect of the
case, which has so 'far gone against the Japanese,
til but their own investigators assigning them
a place among the Mongols. Refusal of the en
ergetic little brown men to rest under the decision
of outside authoritiet on the point of racial qual
ification maket it rather awkward for the United
Statet. Our declination to recognize the Jap at
a blood brother hat been carefully sugar-coated
so far, and so does not deter him from pretsing
his demand. The aspiration of the Japanese to
be considered "white folks" is very likely to
break on the cold rocks of western prejudice.
Our position on the question , should not be a
serious obstacle to Japanese national ambition.
It Is rather a test of racial fitness. Economic at
well at social reasont support opposition to free
admission of the Japanese coolie, who is scarcely
more to be desired than is his Chinese or Indian

Why Mr. Hughes Should
. Be Elected
-William R. Wlllcox,-
Chalrajaa Rapuhlicaa National Commlttaa
MR. HUGHES, it seems to me, does well to
emphasize the importance of the tariff as
a potential issue of this compaign. The
tariff question has been a vital issue since the
foundation of the government, and it must con
tinue to be a political issue ao long as we are
divided on the best means of raising revenue and
upon the question of what if any, imposition of
duties is necessary to protect our labor and in
dustry. Fortunately, we do not have to do any
guessing whatever in the matter.. We have not
only the experience of a century and a quarter
under various tariff laws, but we have, to guide
us at the present time, a full ten months of expe
rience under the operation of the present Under
wood tariff.
Those ten months, before the war. broke out,
proved to us that, like every other low .tariff in
our history, the Underwood law was a failure
from both the standpoint of revenue and of in
suring work for the American people. . Without
sufficient revenue, without tufficient work , and
without any compensation whatever in a de
crease of the cost of living, the verdict must
be pronounced that, from every standpoint, the
law was a failure.
But we do not have to stop with the operation
of the law during those ten months. There is
the absolute result that since the foreign war
broke out the present democratic, low tariff, in
spite of the fact that all the large producing
countries of the earth are at war with each other,
has opened our markets to a greater volume of
foreign productions than ever was known before
in our history. In thefast fiscal year our im-
Eorts increased month after month-by record
reaking figures, and if tuch a volume of foreign
wares come in. under the conditions of the last
two years what, I ask, may we expect will happen
When the war is over?
We do. not need to estimate-how great a
flood of goods may then come from the nations
now at war,-, Whatever; Imports do come from
thote countries will be in .addition to the Im
mense volume of goods that, even now are com
ing to our markets. When the millions abroad
now under , arms return to their homes and take
up their various trades with eagerness to sell in
the one great profitable market of the earth, the
United States, what may we expect and, I may
add, dread as to the result and the effect on our
own labor. - ' '
When the war ceases and our own laborers
who are now employed in making munitions are
idle, when our mills cannot turn to the'produc
tion of domestic wares because our markets are
filled with the more cheaply produced foreign
fabrications, then we shall get the true measure
of just what the Underwood tariff means to the
labor and industry of the United States. It is
bad enough as it is.- It must be worse when the
war is over. , How much worse we can only
look forward to with anxiety and fearj Foreign
nations are now sending lis more lhan $2,000,
000,000 worth of goods a year. We may well ex
pect that volume to Je greatly increased when
the great producing countries now at war get to
work again and look eagerly to our markets as
the only ones on earth to 'which .they can profit
ably send their goods. '
If there were any compensation whatever;
if we were getting a sufficient amount of reve
nue, together with ordinary internal revenue, to
support the government; if our people were
buying the necessary articles of shelter, clothing; ,
food and comfort cheaper, then there might be
some argument for the, free-trader to advance' in'
favor of opening tur ports freely to foreign pro
ductions. : But. nothing is cheaper today. The
cost of living is 'higher than ever and we are
well withiil ,a. reasonable; estimate "when we say
that we are losing more than $100,000,000 a year
in,revenue. In 1910, 1911, 1912, 1913 pur cuttomt
receipts averaged $320,000,000 a year; in the- last
two. years they, have averaged $21U,UW,UW.
It seems Wme welU then, as I said at the
outset, that we .should emphasize daily -the im
portance of a consideration of the tariff question
as one of the great issues of this campaign .We
are emphasizing Americanism; we are empha
sizing 1 preparedness, in military and naval
strength; we are emphasizing loyalty to the Stars
and Stripes. Why should we, then, not empha
size a fiscal policy which is the foundation. for
all, which means work and wages and a high
standard of Jiving; which means comfort and
convenience; -which: means - education; which
. :.. v:..... i : i i u m.
I say, should we not emphasize in this campaign
the -absolute necessity for a change in our tariff
policy if we. are . to continue to be a nation of
strength and prosperity, a nation of independence
and progress?.

Vtur-Maue Prosperity.
Omaha, Sept 28. To the Editor ol
xne uee: 1 was giaa to see your eai
torial on the subject of the hard times
that prevailed after the Underwood
tariff bill was passed, and before the
European war commenced. Times ot
poverty and distress, which were
growing worse dally, and would have
eventually Involved the whole country
ir it pad not been lor tne European
war making demands on us which
started all the factories going again
and gave plenty of work.
In this campaign the democrats are
continually talking about the great
prosperity of the country, but they
never acknowledge it is because of
the war; their writings and their talks
Imply that it is because of the demo
cratic administration. So far aa I have
seen very little is being said by the
republicans to refute their tmpnca
tlons, and I wish they would say more
about It Because many people, espe
dally on the democratic side, have
forgotten all about those hard limes.
You probably remember, or you
could And by referring to your files.
how many unemployed armies were
marching from city to city in the west
and what trouble they caused the citi
zens in their attempt to feed them and
try to keep them moving on, and the
fear in the hearts of our officials of
what we would do when they reached
the Missouri river; the fact of Coxey
rising up again and offering to lead
another army to Washington, etc
I wish you would refresh our mem
ories by telling us how many men
were marching, and where and what
cities they, camped In or by, and what
dates. I believe it would be appre
ciated by all republicans who realize
what the Underwood tariff law would
have done to this country if It had
not been for the European war.

Laird, D. O., is reason enough why
people do not want osteopaths in puo
11c institutions . Smallpox has been
entirely driven out of Germany and
Austria by compulsory vaccination,
and anyone who calls himself a phy
sician and opposes compulsory vac
cination has no place In any public
institution, and a medical society that
takes ud its time with national pro
hibition and woman suffrage has not
enough legitimate medical practice to
keep busy. What : possible recom
mendation la It to a doctor to be In
favor of prohibition and woman suf
frage, or to be against both?
The objection to osteopathy, chiro
practic Christian- Science and other
so-called "schools of medicine" Is that
their standard of education is too low.
Any farm boy with not even an eighth
grade school education can become a
doctor in many of these schools by
one winter's attendance or two win
ter's attendance, and even through
schools of correspondence. There is
no educational, requirement A doc
tor deals with people's lives, and they
should be protected against Ignorance
and Incompetency. For that reason
every medical school of first-class
standing demands a high school edu
cation as an entrance requirement
and we hope the day will soon come
when they will require a-university
degree before the Jives of the people
are placed in their hands
It is Impossible for an Ignorant
uneducated doctor to correctly diag
nose disease, without which a cure is
of course out of the- question. - The
public does not care whether the doc

osteopath, a Christian Science healer. .
an iaf lectio or anything else, provided
he has the requisite education, which
should be at least a high school course

eighth grade ignoramus with a corre
ipondence school medical diploma or

rant money-making so-called "medi
cal schools" that is the great menace
to the health of the people.
