grade brought around $1.96. No. S hard
ranged In prlc from $1.42 to $1.64, and

Chicago. Oct. 19. New high price levels
were reached today In th whetft market
here and prices finished strong, at a- net
advance of lc to 3c for active months,
with December 91. 984101. 99 and May at
1.66OLs4 biH unchanged too lower

the darkest1 yet received, and advises from
Argentina bold of continued damage from

oats -of 0c to tc. In provisions the
outcome oangfd from the same as yester
day's close to a rise of 67 c.
Bulls In wheat gave special attention
today to reports that not only was half
or more of th Canadian crop covered with
snow, but also that the grain In question
was rain-soaked and frosen. According to
one authority tho railway (reins from ths
Canadian wheat growing districts were
crowded with outside laborers leaving the
country, in aaaition, tne Canadian govern'
ment was said to be calling away soldiers
who had been leaned to farmers to help
out with threshing, which the weather
conditions now had rendered Impossible.
With such reports current, lower1 cable quo
tations failed to cause more than a brief
show of weakness In the market. Assisted
by a liberal purchase on' European account
and by urgent speculative domestlo de
mand, prices continued to ascend until ths
Utsl hour or, the session.
Realising of profits led to something of
a setback for wheat pricea during the lat
dealings. Every dealing, however, ran Into

HAD NO PROTECTION,
Colonel Says president Has
Left. Americans Helpless
for Three Years.
LOFTY PROMISE, JAILURE
Louisville, Ky., Oct. 19. Asserting
that 'or three years there had been
"no protection of our citizens abroad,"
Theodore Roosevelt in an address
last night on behalf of Charles E.
Hughes, republican nominee, assailed
the course of-President Wilson in
dealing with. Mexico, and his conduct
of the country's foreign..vaffairs.
"It combined lofty promise and
complete failure in performance. It
consisted of words-which were nulli
fied by deeds'" he said in summing
up his view of the president's course.
Entering Kentucky in the forenoon,
Coloriel Roosevelt delivered more
than a dozen rear' platform addresses
before reaching Louisville. ' Crossing
the Ohio river at Cincinnati, his
course took him almost to the' Ten
nessee line. At Paris and Cynthiana
hi told his audience he was glad to
be. in Kentucky where, if it was neces
sary, "the people were not too proud
to fight." His largest auditnees were
at Winchester and Richmond.
On his arrival here Ihis evening he
was met at the railroad station by a
large crowd which escorted- him to
Phoenix Hill part, about two miles
away, where he spoke. Many per
sons, unable to effect an entrance,
were turned awsry.
. Wilson's Omaha Utterance.
Colonel Roosevelt referred to the
president's Omaha speech in this
"President Wilson's speeches are
models of adroit indirect suggestion
and avoidance of downright state
ment. But the other day at Omaha
he seems to have committed himself
to the statement that he was 'will
ing to fight,' but was 'waiting ' for
something worth fighting for,' for
something which would 'put all the
corpuscles of his blood into shouting
shape.' It would be interesting to
know exactly what outrage on Amer
ican citizens, or on the right of hu
manity anywhere, which would make
him cross the line between being
'willing to fight'vand 'too proud to
fight.' He certainly did not regard
the treacherous murder of Boyd and
Adair, and this United States, as
"Something worth fighting for.' He
did not even write a ndte about it.
uThe murder of 1,394 men, women and

all the corpuscles of his iblood-into
Shouting shape.' His-corpuscles did
not shout; they did not even whisper;
apparently all they did was to sug
gest to him tbat it was a happy oc
casion for his classic remark about
being 'too proud to fight.' I am
tempted to think that Mr. Wilson did
himself an injustice when he said that
he was 'willing to fight' either for
any great cause or on account of any
wrong hereafter done to this country;
and that the truth was expressed the
other day by his eager eulogist, Sec
retary Baker, when he said that tie
was 'glad' that 'no one could inSult
Mr. Wilson and make him go to war.'
Unquestionably .General . Carranza,
and probably . .. Herr , vori Tirpitz,
heartilv agree with Secretary Baker
and deep in his own heart I am, in
clined to believe that Mr. wuson him
self also agrees with him.
"Keeping ill Out of War." v '
There was probably no American
outside his own immediate following
more anxious to see him succeed, and
more disappointed when he failed,
than I was.' I criticise, him onlyibe
him 'only because my duty as an
American citizen, oroud of his coun
try and tealous of its honor, forces
mi to stand against him. Apparently
the chief claim advanced for Mr., Wil
son how is that hi has 'kept us out of
war.' Mr. Wilson himself said in ef-
fecrMhe other day that if he was not
elected we would nave war. let Mr.
Wilson, through the democratic plat
form, announces that the Mexicans
have made war upon us, and have
murdered our citizens.' Apparently
Mr. Wilson does not mmd the Mexi
cans being at war with us, as long as
we are not at war with the Mexicans.
AAnMan.:nn n ....... nn;n.

fully resembles that described by Mr.
Stephen Leacock in his anecdote of
how Mr.ySmith took Mr( Tonipkins
Dy me coai couar irom peninu anu
beean kicking him vigorously, 'and
the fight continued in this manner for
several minutes.' The' war out of
which Mr. Wilson has not kept us

attitude has been precisely as digni
fied as that of the mishandled hero of
Leacock anecdote. And the great
military nations of the world have
treated Mr. Wilson, and through Mr.
Wilson have treated Uncle Sam, in
similar fashion. '
Made War on Hayti. -
"Mowever, in one case' Mr. Wilson
asserted himself. Hayti had not be
haved towards us 100th part as badly
as Mexico, nor one-tenth as badly as
Germany; but Hayti had neither army
nor. navy, Hayti did not even have
arms and -ammunition, and therefore
President Wilson was not too proud
ot fight Hayti., Hehas taught the
world that no Nation which is small
enough to be helpless can insult us
with impunity. Are you proud of the
record, you Americans of Kentucky,
you whose fathers were once not too
proud to fight? Mr. Wilson has 'kept
4is out of war' forsooth! Why, on
our eastern 'coast war now grins at
us from just outside the three-mile
limit, and on our southern border war
has been waged on us within our own
territory again and again by bands of
armed invaders during the last three
y?"-:. .'.... , .. ,
in his great oook on international
law, Vattel defines war 'as the effort
to assert rights by violence.' The
Mexicans, during Mr. Wilson's term,
have killed more Americans than the
Spaniards killed in the Spanish war.
We have now gathered on the Mexi
can border, and have kept, there for
three months, a far larger army than
the combined armies that took" Cuba
and -the Philippines from -the
Spaniards and I throw in all the men
on the American squadrons. There
are down on the Mexican border at
present more than ten times as many
men as were in Mexico under Scott
and Taylor combined in our war with
Mexico. We have had all the blood-'
shed and expense of war:- But we
have not secured what follows a wise,
righteous and manful war peace." i
