THE KENTUCKY FOLK

Candidate Tells Heckler What
He Would Have Done in

HE WOULD HAVE W Alt NED
,.' Louisville, Ky., Oct. U. Charles
Lvans Hughes went through the
mountains of Kentucky yesterday, a
new campaign field for presidential
nominees, outlining his views on the
maintentnce of American rights, and
ended his day's tour of the state with
a meeting here tonght, in which he
declared that the "new freedom," ad
vocated by President Wilson four
years ago, had been transmuted in one
respect to "the new slavery "
Mr. Hughes, answering a question
here toniaht as to what he would
have done when the Ltsitanii was
sunk, declared that "when notice was

sir, would not have been sunk." The
audience applauded long and loudly.
M.r Hughes said that a, the very
beginning he would have had the
State deptrtment so equipped as to
command the respect of the world;
.Mr. Hughes spoke in six towns to
day to audiences that had come, for
the most part, for miles to hear them

. In his speech m Phoenix. Hilt hall
here tonight, Mr. Hughes devoted
much of his attention to the protective
tariff and to what he. termed the, "new
slavery." - -i .
"We have heard, much" of-the" new
freedom," he said. V'lt seema. to have
a surprising and deplorable range It
has meant freedom to. sacrifice the
principles of the merit system, which
our opponents pledged themselvesi to
enforce. . ';
Offices Are Created. -
"Thousands of offices . have been
created with the provision that the.v
might be filled without reference to
the requirements of the civil service
act It has meant freedom to embark
the government in novel enterprises
in competition with private business
as in the case of the government ship
ping bill. v
"It has meant freedom to deDart
from the principle of international law
to conduct a personal diplomacy to
satisfy personal vindictiveness. It has
meant freedom to wage war, not to
protect American rights, but to dis
lodge a disliked ruler and to leave our
citizens and their property to anarchy
and revolution. It has meant freedom
to depart from our time-honored pol
icy of protecting American citizens
who take American enterprise abroad
and to substitute a new policy which
treats them as adventurers, whose
flag is no longer a symbol of protec
tion of their just rights.
Government by Holdup.
"It means freedom to subvert the
principles of government by yielding
authority to the' demands of force.
In this last phase instead of the new
freedom we have the new slavery.
What are the characteristics of this
new slavery? It is the use of the
forms of free institutions to tyran
ize over the public; to impose de
mands without inquiry as to their
"The new slavery is government by
holdup. It is terrorized government
or the rule of politics assuming ter
ror as an excuse for submission. The
executive is chosen to defend the ci
tadel of constitutional government.
Instead he surrenders it. Where shall
this stop? j
Blow to Business.
"These innovations are serious
blows to American business. But it
is said that the ' administration has
aided business and strangely enough
it refers to the anti-trust act. it is
said that these laws stood in need
ji definition; that men spoke of them
as of shackles, and the administra
tion seems to wish to create the im
pression that it has unshackled busi
less. "A most extraordinary claim I They
say that they have supplied the
needed definition. They have done
nothing of the sort. They have added
a vague phrase to the law, the phrase
'unfair competition.' The content of
this they have not defined. No
phrase more indefinite was ever put
into a statute.
"Usually words are used in a Stat
tute with some reference to their
meaning in the law. But the phrase
'unfair competition' is evidently not
used in its ordinary legal sense. That
refers to the palming off of one man's
goods as those of another through
misleading descriptions, labels, car
tons, and the like. There were and
are abundant remedies for that sort
of things, as every well informed mer
Even Lawyers Don't Know.
"This phrase as used in the new
law was evidently intended to have
wider meaning than that. What is
its meaning? No lawyer knows. It
will have to be worked out through
years of litigation and by the de
cisions of courts, for the federal trade
commission cannot settle the legal
meaning of the statute which con
fers its authority.
'Yet the administration complac
ently speaks of aiding business by
defining the evils aimed at by the
' Not only does the federal trade
commission act not define what it
means by unfair competition, but it
leaves the anti-trust act in full effect
"The federal trade commission act
conludes as follows:
- " 'Nothing contained in this act shall
be construed to prevent or interfere
with the enforcement of the pro
visions of the anti-trust acts, or the
act to regulate commerce, nor shall
anything contained in the act be con
strued to alter, modify or repeal the
said anti-trust acts, or the act to
regulate commerce or any part or
"That disposes of the claim of the
administration that it has aided busi
ness by clarifying the anti-trust act."
At this point Mr. Hughes was in
terrupted and he made his statement
concerning the. Lusitania incident.
, "It has been said that the new
freedom would liberate great oppor
tunities. But what do we find? We
find that it has been a cover, or rather,
there has been a freedom to deviate
from settled principles of interna
tional law in the conduct of a personal
diplomacy to satisfy a personal vin
dictiveness. The powers of this great
nation in diplomacy exercise great and
well settled principles. When I look
at the record in Mexico I am filled
with dismay at what portends. It was
not a question at all of whether
Huerta should or should not have
been recognized. The administration
might have refused recognition if it
thought that he did not have a stable
government to maintain. But the ad
ministration was not content with
that. The' new freedom seemed to
cover a freedom to wage a personal
war Upon a disliked ruler. I have read
the instructions that were authorized
to be given by the official spokesman
of the administration.
"It was in these terms as communi
cated to a foreign minister in Mexico,
a minister there of another country
deeply concerned in our policy. The
language of the authorized statement
" 'Huerta will be put out, if he does
not get out. The president prefers that j
this should be done.' by, domestic
means if possible, but whatever
meansr are necessary ' will, be resort
ed to.' '
'That was a threat of war. That
in my judgment, was an indefensible
'threat of war, That led to our em
broilment In actual; war, for within a
few days Vour. forces were sent to
Mexico and we Had an actual Dattie
at Vera Cruz. Now, we are met with
the statement that to challenge the,
record of the administration is prac
tically to say that one favored war.
1 do not favor war; I am a man of
peace. I believe we should consult
the policies of peace. I believe in
maintaining to Americans just rights.
but I am opposed to waging war upon
an individual to satisfy a dislike for
the uses of the armed forces of the
United States in maintaining Amer
ican rights, but to destroy the only
government Mexico knew and leave
our citizens and others to the rav
ages of anarchy and revolution. That
is npt a policy of peace. There was no
mandate given to the administration
to indulge in such a policy. The wide
discretion that the administration has
over matters of our diplomacy is sup
posed to be exercised in accordance
with established principles. What is
the established principle that should
be followed? I think there are three
principles which we should follow. I
do not profess to know what the
particular condition of our Mexican
affairs will be in next March. I do
not profess to be able to say what par
ticular steps will be needed to meet
conditions. But I do profess to say
that there are certain principles which
must be fully applied.
"The first of these principles is
this, that we will not meet with
matters which do not concern us.
Secondly, we shall not merely say
that we will recognize and observe
the rights of small states, but that we
shall do what we profess to do and
actually observe them. And the third
is this: That in Mexico and else
where, while wo do not meddle with
what does not concern us, while we
intend to maintain respect for the
rights of other states, small or great,
we shall have, it just simply under
stood that at all events, the lives and
property of American citizens will
"The new freedom seemed to cover
a departure from a time-honored
policy. It has always been the policy
of this government to protect Am
erican citizens who are lawfully ex
ercising their just rights abroad.
' We hear, much in these days of
the importance of expanding Ameri
can enterprise. We arc told this is
the opportunity of Americans to go
abroad throughout the world serving
mankind. We are told we have a
great duty to humanity to perform in
foreign parts. The cornerstone of
any policy which has in view the ex
pansion of. American enterprise in for
eign parts is the protection of Am
erican citizens who are lawfully an
gaged in enterprises abroad. Who
supposes that we can extend foreign
enterprises if we withhold that pro
tection. Who supposes that you will
get all the advantages of American
talent to go forth into remote places
far from their friends and from the
protection of their homes if the flag
their flag docs not mean protection
to their just rights under interna
tional law and yet, perhaps, the most
powerful defender of this administra
tion, President Elliot, has interpreted
the record of this administration to
be an abandonment of that historic
policy. He says, as he interprets the
record made, that we have departed
from the policy of Great Britain and
of Rome. And he might have added,
of the United States, of protecting
our citizens in toreign parts.
Hughes Answers Louisville Heckler
Concerning the Lusitania Case
Tells His Questioner What He
Would Have Done if He Had
Been President. .
Louisville, Ky., Oct. 13. (Special
Telegram.) Charles E. Hughes to
night, while speaking in Phenix hall,
answered a man who asked him what
he would have done in the Lusitania
incident in a way that won liim pro
longed applause. He had said during
the course of his address:
"The path of peace is the path of
self respect, which maintains the
digrity of' our citizenship and ce
ments the friendship of all nations."
A voice interrupted the speaker,
calling- "Justice Hughes, just a
moment, please permit a respectful
interruption. What would you have
done (cries of "put him out!")
"Please permit the question' to be
ans ered. I do not want anyone
shut off from a courteous question.
Go on, sir Please ask your question."
(cries of "Go on you boob!")
A voice: ' "1 ask. I trust respect
fully" (Cries of "put him out I")
' Please let the question be asued.
I desire this question o be asked.
Please ask it."
A voice: "I ask you with all re
spect that I know, what- you would
have done, when the Lusitania was
itink see if you can answer this."
(Laughter and applause.)
"1 will answer this (Cheers)-
No' permit me to answer it permit
r,.e to answer !t. Sir, would have
had the State department at the very
beginning of the administration so
equipped as to command the respect
of he world (applause).
"Second (continued interruption)
Kindly wait till I get through and do
not interrupt with applause until I
have answered the gentleman's ques
tion. I have said (hat I would have
had the State department equipped
so as to command the respect of
the world at the outset of the admini
stration; and, next, I would have so
conducted affairs in Mexico as to
show that our words me. tit peace
and good will, and the protection at
all events of the lives am1 property
of American citizens, (applause)
"And next, and next wueu I said
'strict accountability' every nation
would have known that that was
meant; and, further, when notice wa
published with respect to the action
threatened. I would have made it
, known in terms unequivocal and un
I miataksble, that we should not tol
. erate a continuance of friendly rela
tions through the ordinary diplomatic
I channels if that action were taken
' and the Lusitania. sir, would not have
been sunk!" (Loud and continued ap
