announces that four years- ago he and

"Next month " continue Mr

Join Hughes League,
Mn Spearman not only declined to
join the Wilson league, but he wrote
to former Senator Theodore E. Bur
ton, president of the Hughes College
league, enrolling himself and his three
sons in, the Hughes league. - With hi
letter to i Senator Theodore Burton.
' Mr. Spearman enclosed a copy of his
letter to Governor Harmon. In thi
, letter Mr. Spearman reviewed Mr
' Wilson's presidential career from the
appointment of Bryan to head the
Mate department down to vthe' last
thing he has done, in ramming down
the throat of congress his indefensible

Adaraaon Jaw.".,--. i - . - -. ,
'"It ia difficult to speak with .be
coming restraint of his Mexican rec
ord." continues Mr. Spearman. "Mr
Bryan sought only to Mexicanlze the
currency of our -country; Mr. Wilson
has Mexicanized, io far as he could
ita decent .self-respect. Mr. Bryan
threatened only the national, purse;.
, Mr. Wilson has filched our country's
good name., : . ..f. , ...
Silence Comes With Mexico.
."The cries of 'the tortured Arme
nian Christians' moved Mr. Wilson al
mast to tears. The cries of the tor.
tared Mexican Christiana masked hit
visage with -that solemn brooding
silence to .which, we have become an
unhappily accustomed. On the sub
ject of driving Christ, out of Mexico,
Mr. Wilson has nothing not a syl
lable to say.- -And in every atep of
his presidential career the American
.people have been met by his myster
ious mutterings, political undertones,
dark intimations of imminent peril!,
and irritating insinuations, and -have
'been left to grope for truth concern
ing situations with every-avenue ol
.the administration guarded to prevent
ihe facts underlying his policies from
becoming publicly known. Mr Wil
son will wonder next month why the
business men of this country have
presented practically united front
against him at the polls. It is because
of their contempt for his utter help
lessness as concerna business need..
For advice on this subject he has re
lied on Mr. Josephua Daniela; as
to Mexican conditions on Mr John
Lind an J Senor Carranza. In what
ever direction we. consider Mr Wil
son and hia advisers their efforts ap
pear futile, equally depressing.
"This i.-ank letter is due to the fact
ihat 1 have bottled up my political
wrath to j long.. But thia appeal to
enroll in behalf of the present occu
pant of the White House has been
the straw that has broken at the elev
enth hour my camel's-back of silence.
Tens of thousands of democrats like
myself have not changed our posi
tions, the policies of Mr. Bryan and
too many of Mr. Wilson's are not
and never have been democratic."
New Jersey Swinga to Hughes.
An extraordinary swing to Gover
nor Hughes in President Wilson's
home state of voters who supported
him in 1912, is indicated by. enroll
ments in the New Jersey branch of
the Hughes alliance, it was announced
today. State pride in the candidacy
of Mr. Viion apparently is not hold
ing Nem Jersey voters for him. ' A
fostal cara canvass 'shows that over
per cent of those who voted for the
president lour years ago ase now sup
porting Governor Hughes.
William E." Walter, an attorney of
Fort Wayne, Ind., sent the Hughes
alliance today the names of 107 men
of his. personal acquaintanceall dem
ocrats, who' have announced their
support of Governor Hughes and en
rolled in the alliance. This indication
of a Hughes' sweep in Indiana is
borne out by information gleaned by
E. B. J-isher,- a traveling salesman,
who has just completed a trip through
that state and Who wrote the Hughes
alliance saying: "After traveling sev
eral hundred miles through Indiana,
thinking, sleeping, , talking, eating,
fig's ing for Hughes, I have come to
the concluaion there are 100,000 voters
in Indiana who Say little but are for
Hughes and. that nothing will stay i
flean sweep for' Hughes and Fair
banks and the state ticket, including
the two United States senators.

Out of the din and confusion caused by the assertions, charges and counter-charges which are
-being made by the presidential candidates and their supporters arises one question which many
' thousands, of people art asking,- and-that is : "Just What Action Would Mr, Hughes or Mir. Roose
velt Have Taken in Dealing Vith Germany, England and Mexico, Had They Been in Mr. Wilson's
. Place?" ' , v. . , .; ..- .
. With a view to throwing light on this subject, the editors of THE LITERARY DIGEST have
; carefully analyzed the speeches of, Mr.' Hughes, Mr; Roosevelt and Mr. Wilson bearing upon our for-"'
' eign relations. " ' ' . x '':;';
In THE LITERARY DIGEST for October 14, the result is given in avery comprehensive
article in which are arranged in careful juxtaposition the public utterances of each of the three men
upon the subject of our foreign relations. By means of this orderly arrangement the American pub
lic can get a very definite answer to the question raised. '
