New York, Oct. 25. Charles E.
Hughes, republican presidential nom
inee, in an. address in Brooklyn to-
night, in which he made an appeal to
the young voters of America, declared
that the republican party had recov
ered from the division of four years
ago and is ready once more to serve.
"The republican party," Mr.
Hughes asserted, "sprang into being
at a time of deepest national peril.
"Preserving the nation, it not only
abolished slavery, but emancipated
the people from the curse of a de
structive sectionalism," said the
Want Country Respected.
After reciting at length what he
called the achievements of the party,
Mr. Hughes asked:- "What sort of a
country does young America, vibrant
with patriotism, desire?"
Saying he would endeavor to an
swer the question, Mr. Hughes con
tinued: "He wants a country re
spected throughout the, world. He
wants a country which respects the
dignity of its citizenship and thus de-
' serves and enjoys the esteem of other
nations. He wants no braggart as
sertion of power, no policies of ag
gression; he has no desire for strife,
', but he desires to have the American
flag a symbol of firmness, a courage-
. ous and indomitable spirit of an in
tense love of justice, of great strength
. well organized, but never misused,
which secures protection to American
citizens in tncir just rigms turuugn
out the world.
Must Protect Trade.
"He must recognize there is no per
rhancnt security for people who take
conncil of its fears rather than its
principles, Timidity, A weakness and

it we do not protect our. trade.
Mr. Hughes declared, ."it will be con
stantly shackled and menaced. If the
lives of our citizens are not eafi
- guarded," said Mr. Hughes, "there will
: be a continued invitation to slaughter

evoked. If we do not protect our

we had been "shockingly lacking" in
adequate military preparedness. This
was revealed, he added, at the Mexi

The message stated there probably

Although the report did not tell of
tne progress ot the Villa attack on
Chihuahua, persons who reached the
border told army officers that camp
fires of the attacking force could be
plainly seen from the city.
The report contained a detailed ac
count of the crushing defeat received

"General Ozuna had about 3,000

When, near Palomas, Villa sent 200
men to intercept and gave battle for
a few minutes, retreating and fighting
as they retreated. Then Villa sent
another detachment in behind Ozu
