here and at Bay City today before
audiences that packed the halls where

Inciting a Dastard Deed
The false and malicious cry raised by desperate demo
cratic campaigners that "a vote for Hughes is a vote, for
war" refutes itself to intelligent minds, but we shudder at
the possible effect of its constant repetition7 upon degen
erates and fanatics who we know are to be found in every
The gist and burden of this mendacious" appeal to
prejudice and passion is to make ignorant people believe
that Mr. Hughes is a blood-thirsty, inhuman monster bent
upon enveloping his country in the terrible ravages of war.
To say that "a vote ..for Hughes is a vote for war"
brings to .folks of blunted intellect a picture of ruthless
. devastation and wanton destruction of the jives of men,
women and children and is designed to pursuade them
that Mr. Hughes, instead of being the gentle, considerate
peace-loving man that he is, devoted all his life, as pr
shown, to the. settlement of controversies by VK"'dP
solution rather than by force, is eager to pull down.pon
us a needless "war with all its horrors and .hardships.
It was this kind of talk, let it be remembered, that
stirred the assassin's hand and speeded the, bullet that put
'an untimely end to the lamented McKinley. We have in
our files a- newspaper article which calls McKinley "a
murderer," written by a man who is now a member of the
editorial staff of Senator Hitchcock's democratic organ that
is spreading this "vote-for-Hughes-yote-for-war" poison.
To that article and to articles like that in democratic pa
pers may be traced the inception of the crime that took
McKinley away from us.'
What we are trying to make plain is that the present
diabolical democratic outburst against Hughes is just as
apt to have a similar effect upon some muddled mind, and
should it happen (which God forbid!) that some be
wildered half-lunatic were thus persuaded that he has a
"divine mission" to "remove" Mr. Hughes, as a menace to
the' peace of the country, responsibility for the dastard
deed would, be properly chargeable to the unscrupulous
political bomb fabricators who are engineering the demo
WILSON IS . LOSING
Ex-Democratio. State Chair
man Gives Reasons for N,ot
RECORD IS AGAINST HIM
Phila delphia. Oct. 19. That the
democratic party in Pennsylvania is
as badly disorganized as ever' was
demonstrated late last week when
Judge John..M. Garman of Luzerne
county, one of the oldest and best
democrats in the commonwealth, opeir-
ly declared for the defeat of President
Wilson. Judge Garman, who now oc
cupies a place on the common pleas
bench of his county, served as demo
cratic state 'chairman for a- number
of years and once ran for congress as
the nominee of his party.
Judge Garman's declaration against
Wilson was made while on a visit to
this city, but it was evident that long
ago he fully made up his mind to take
a stand for Simon-pure democratcy,
which, he says, Hon. Woodrow Wil
son and his leaders do not represent.
According to Judge Garman, Wilson
is neither democrat nor republican;
that he is an opportunist who is ready
to shift principles according to con
ditions and the times.
"I am unalterably opposed to the
rr-lrrtinn of President Wilson," said
Judge Garman. "As a democrat, who
has been a democrat all my life, 1
see nothing n Woodrow Wilson
uAiirh should commend him to the
support of democratic voters. He is
no more of a democrat than is a re
publican a democrat, and yet he is not
a republican. Wilson is nothing in
politics. He goes the way the wind
blows and that has been the history
of his administration since the day he
took office nearly four years ago.
Should Not Hesitate.
"No democrat should hesitate about
voting against Wilson. A democrat
who retuses to support mm is noi
committing treason. Far from it. On
the contrary, he is doing a great pub
lic service. Let it be said further
that a democrat who opposes Wilson
is merely repaying that gentleman in
lfis own coin. . For Woodrow Wilson
did not support the democratic-ticket
in 1896 and his democracy on other
occasions can also be questioned.
Those democrats who have good
memories have not torgotten wnat
Wilson said about Bryan. It was that
Bryan should be knocked into a cock
ed hat. Wilson never voted for
Brvan. or he would not have had that
opinion of the democratic candidate
for oresident. I hasten to say that I
am not going to the rescue of Bryan,
who, after he became rich, developed
into a truckling politician and then
common scold. What I am trying to
point out is, that Bryan was the
party's nominee, and assuch should
have gotten the support of Mr. Wil
son. The fact that he did not justifies
mv stand and the stand of thousands
of other good democrats in Pennsyl
vania who are opposing Woodrow
McCormick and McLean.
'The entire democratic fight is be
ing waged by men whose democracy
cannot stand the acid test. Vance Mc
Cormick is Wilson s hand picked
chairman. He is not a democrat in
reality Just a sham politician, who
is in-the game for whatever glory he
can get out of it. He has fought the
democratic ticket almost as often as
he has given it support. Yet he calls
on all democrats to stand for the

more and you will find that the dem
ocratic state chairman, William S.
McLean,' Jr., is also in the doubtful
class when it comes to party regu
larity. He resides in my own county
and I know whereof I speak. The
only democratic candidates he will
support are those that Ire had a hand
in picking. When the democratic

IN BREAD IN SIGHT
Chicago Bakers Say if Wheat
Climbs Higher Loaf Must Be
Smaller or Crfst More.
MORE MONET OR
Chicago, Oct 19. The public'
confronted with another increase in
the,price of bread if wheat continues
to advance, according to predictions
today of leading bakers.
The 10-cent jump m -the price f
wheat in the last two days sent flour
up 75 cents a barrel, which caused the
big bakers to announce that in addi
tion to the recent increases in the
prices of bread they would have to
make further advances unless some
thing unforeseen lowers the price of
flour." Bakers paid $9.50 a barrel
wholesale for flour yesterday, the
highest price in Chicago in twenty
"Unless an embargo on the expor
tation ot wheat is declared, said Paul
Schulze, a baker, "there will be a
wheat famine before spring. Even as
the situation is now. small millers are
shutting down their plants and Ail

"If wheat goes up. flour noes uo."
said B. H. Dablheimer; president of
tne Master Bakers association, and
we must increase the price of bread,
or decrease the size ot the loat in
order to live."
And Milk Goes Higher.
New York, Oct. 19. An increase of
1 cent a quart in the retail price of all
grades of milk was announced today
by the Borden Milk company. As a
result of the agreement which settled
the recent milk strike here, the dis
tributors are now paying higher
prices to the dairymen. Beginning to
morrow, grade A-milk will be 12 cents
a quart; grade B, 10 cents; certified,
16; buttermilk, 7. The miljr supply
here has again become normal.

THREE ADDRESSES IN CITY
Chicago,. Oct 19. President Wil
son came here today to explain his
view on problems facing the nation
He delivered three speeches here, par
ticipated in several street demonstra
tions and went over his western cam
paign plans with his managers at
headquarters here. He planned to
leave at midnight and arrive at Long
Branch, N. J., at midnight' tomorrow.
In a speech before the Chicago
Press club the president pre'dicted
the beginning of "a renaissance of the
sense of patriotic responsibility," and
urged the development of progressive
ness. Speaking before a gathering
of women he urged more participation
of when in the affairs of the nation,
and at a meeting tonight of new citi
zens, he declared for a United
Cheered by Throngs.
At his every appearance the presi
dent was cheered by throngs which
packed the streets during his automo
bile rides from place to place, and
filled to capacity the halls in which
he spoke. He stood iu his automo
bile while passing through the crowds
and smilingly waved his hat to the
people on the streets and in the win
dows or the buildings'. . 1
An attempted "silent demonstra
tion" by members of the national
Women's party in front of the Audi
torium developed into a near riot, in
which banners opposing Wilson were
torn from the demonstrators and
trampled, and the women were rough
ly handled. President Wilson was
seated in an automobile a few hun
dred feet away when the demonstra
tion started, but passed into the
building and was not a witness to the
scene that followed.
Women Knocked Down.
Shouting, "shame, disgrace,! 'and
"get the banners," a crowd of several
hundred, sprinkled with women,
charged-the banner holders. Umbrel
las and canes were used in. the det
struction of the placards. Many of
the women were knocked down and
nearly all were rouKhlv handled, el
pecially Siose who strove to retain
their banners. '
The excitement continued until all
the banners had been seized. With
disheveled hair and soiled and torn
clothing, the women marched back to
their headqaurters under police

there were all kinds ot policemen
standing", about merely looking on,

"Some of them did not seem to want

ately stand nearby and laugh at us
while we were being beaten and the
banners torn from our hands.
f It Was Terrible.
We were merely standing quietly
holding our banners and not harming
anyone. Suddenly there was a regu
lar riot. I hey grabbed our banners,
trampled on them, and knqeked us
down. It was terrible."
Negro waiters employed at the
Press club, utilized the presence of
President Wilson at lunch there to
gain for themselves a raise in wages,
without investigation and without
compromise. Just before the presi
dent was due to arrive, thirty" special
waiters who were to serve the lunch
eon, put on their coats, preparatory
to walking out. They had not asked
for more pay, but when stopped by
the steward,, told him they had de

increase on the contract prices before
they would begin their duties. The
advantage was their, and the increase

Mrs. Wilson accompanied the presi
dent. Dressed in black and wearing
a large bouquet of orchids and vio
lets, she drew almost as much ap
plause as the president.
At the meeting of women the presi
dent was introduced by Mrs. Ella
Flagg Young, former superintendent
of Chicago's, schools, who declared
he had kept the United Stateslion

occupied a seat in a box.

have not realized that this nation was

Has Been Lost. , 1
IS ONE MONTH OVERDUE
Fate of Vessel Likely to Re
main a Mystery, at Least
Till Close of the War.
MORE DIVERS EXPECTED
Washington, Oct. 19. Loss of th
German submarine merchantman '
Bremen virtually was conceded to- .
day by ranking Teutonic diplomats in
position to be familiar with the move
ments of lie vessel. The Bremen is
now one month overdue.
It was admitted that German offi
cials, not only in this country, but in
Berlin, were without information as N
to the fate of the Bremen. All they .
know is that it set out for America
from Brc merhaven and that it should
have arrived at an American port
soon after the middle of last month.
It is regarded as doubtful that accu
rate information concerning the fate
of the vessel will be available until
after the close of the war. jf then.
Expect Another Submarine. '
The disappearance of the Bremen .
will not cause abandonment of the
project to send merchant submarines
regularly from Germany to the United ,
States, it was said. There appeared ,
to be reason to expect that another
submarine sea freighter, either the
Oeutschland or some other, would
reach an American port some time
within the next month.
Garman officials in Washington do '
not believe the Bremen could have
fallen into the Jiands of the British '
unless it had some accident to its
machinery. They pointed out that,
unlike naval submarines, merchant
submarines avoid all localities fre
quented by shipping and therefore are
not open to the same risks.
When the Bremen was a week over-
due, no ajixiety regarding it was felt.
The Dcutschland was just a week i
overdue when it came through, the
Virginia capes, and the weather con
ditions then were much better than
those which have prevailed during the
last month and a half. When the
vessel was two weeks overdue, anx
ietywas apparent in various Teutonic .
quarters and word of its arrival was
anxiously awaited. Since then hope
that the submarine might be safe has
dwindled each day, and today it was
spoken of as, haying been lost.
