HUGHES' ANSWER TO
Republican Candidate Says As
sertion of Demo Vice Pres
ident Is Preposterous.
MAKES POSITION PLAIN
Lincoln, Neb, Oct IS. (Special
Telegram.) Charles Evans Hughes
last night sharpy replied to speeches,
of Vice President Marshall, delivered
through Nebraska recently, in which
the vice president said that a vote
for Hughes was a vote for war. '
"Now, I have heard it said since I
came into Nebraska," remarked Mr.
Hughes, "that someone has been go
ing through the state saying that a
vote for me meant a vote for war. Did
you ever hear a more preposterous
proposition to present to men? I
stand for peace. It is a shocking
thing to say that if you criticise the
conduct of the administration, you
must be in favor of war. Who is in
favor of war who knows the waste
and earnagt of war? It is a mistake
that you must surrender American
rights in order to maintain peace.
; That is the way to disaster. I am a
man of peace. I have been spending
my life in maintaining the institutions
of peace. I desire in that way to pro
mote international peace. Who can
think without horror of the ravages
of war? Who can desire war? I do
not desire war.
Will Maintain Our Right.
"But I stand here to say to you
that if I am invested with executive
responsibility. I 'propose that -American
rights shall be protected through
out the world (applause). That is
-,' riot to invite war. That is to maintain
our self respect, the dignity of our
citizenship, which is priceless.
"We cannot, unless we do that,
hope to have permanent peace in
world where peace depends upon the
esteem and confidence which we en
joy. We covet nothing. We have no
aggressive policy. We have no de
sire for territory. We want to pur
sue our ideals of peace, but w want
to do ifc in wav which will safe
guard our true interests. 'All the
world desires to be friendly with us.
We desire to be frjendly with every
nation. And it is an unfair state
ment to say that the maintenance of
our known rights invites war. On the

upon our supposed readiness to yield.
That won't do."
Warni Against Inflation.
Mr. Hughes warned hie audience
against the prosperity based on a war.
"We cannot afford to delude our
selves," he said. "We are living at a
time when we have tht stimulus of
a European war. Do not be deceived
' by computing prices which you now
have and opportunities which you
now enjoy. You cannot live on a
European war. You cannot maintain
, American prosperity on an abnormal
basis. On account of this war Eu

Set everything we produce. A great
emend has been created by having
men out of production, away from
their farms, away from their factories)
in a long line of trenches across the
continent on the other aide, fighting.
That won't last forever. That will
last not to very much longer, and
then you will be back to the ordinary
r demands of peace. If you want to
know the situation that will then ex
ist you must reflect upon the fact
that America is now meeting a de
mand which will be eat off, that we
now have profitable opportunities
which will no longer exist That we
shall, on the contrary, have a very
sharp competition with nations that
will go back to the ordinary produc
tion of peace. You know perfectly
well that it it an American necessity
that we must protect American en
terprise, , American agriculture and
American industry by so adjusting
our tariff as to protect our own
markets and our own farmers and
working men. That is the American
policy. (Applause.)- ,.j
Democracy and Fret Trade.
"This administration has delivered
a body blow at agricultural interests.
It delivered a body blow at those in
terests in the passage of the Under
wood bill, which placed almost every
, thing in which America is interested
on the free list' Do they repent of
that position? Not at all. In the
recent olatform they reaffirm this
action and stand by it as represent
