TO START RIGHT IF
Republican Nominee Says He
' ..Will Choose Ablest Cabinet
That Can Be Secured
in Country. :
HOT --GUIDED BY POLITICS
Criticises Wilson's Choice for
Secretaries of State
" 1 and the Navy.
Boston, Oct. 26. Speaking here to
night, Charles E., Hughes, republi
- can nominee for president, asserted
mat, it investea witn executive rc-
sonsibility, he would "'start right."
He said, first thing of all, he would
choose the ablest cabinet to be se
cured in theacountry. He charged
that at that the outset of the present
aumimstration mere were cnosen men
to fill the posts of secretaries of
state and the navv. who "were ab
solutely unequal to the high duties
ot me positions.
Will Start Sight
In his speech here tonight,! M.
nugnes saw: No man can tell m
advance what unexpected demands
the next four years may present, but
one whose conception of a president's
duty rests upon fundamental prin
ciples can describe with entire sin
cerity how the problems of admtnis-
' trations would be approached and in
what spirit they would be solved. The
man charged with the duty of reach
ing a desired goal . may not know
the exact spot in which it is to be
found, but he knows that he will be
able to reach it only by following
that path which sound judgment and
clear vision open up step by step.
"I propose, first of all, to start
right. The president is primarily the
executive. It is his supreme duty . to
attend to the business of the nation,
to safeguard its interests, to antici
pate and understand its needs, to en
force its laws. -....
Must Have Ablest Cabinet. .
"The first act 8f a president, who
takes this ciew of his duties, is to
- call about him the ablest cabinet the
. country can furnish, the most compe
, tent administrative' heads of the vast'
departments of the nation's affairs,
. men who can deal with the tremend
, uous international and domestic
problems which will confront us in
the next foaryears. . ' '-
""My conception of the presidency is
radically different from that which
. seems to have governed the action of
the present administration. I look'
, upon the president as the executive
head of the government. He is its
business manager and considerations
. of mere politics and partisan expedi-
. ency must yield. At the very outset
of the present administration, in the
' r two departments of government most
closely touching our foreign relations
the Department of State and the
Department of the Navy there were
chosen men, who, whatever their ami
able qualities, were absolutely unequal
to the high duties of the positions.
Subordinated to Politics.
s "It is manifest that the great in
terests of the nation and the most im
portant obligations were subordinated
. to a conception of partisan exigency.
I can see far enough into the future
' to assure' the country that if I am
vested with executive responsibility,
it will be discharged upon sound and
administrative principles, through the
ablest cabinet the country can supply.
. ' "Entrusted with the agencies of dip
lomatic intercourse, the president has
in his keeping our international inter
ests and the nation s honor. It
, through his action that we may de
serve and maintain the friendship and
esteem of other nations. We assert
that the peac which the United States,
bpain, Sweden, Norway and the
American republics now enjoy -.shall
be maintained. But I should seek to
maintain our peace by firmness and
consistency which would deserve and
secure the esteem of the world.

self-respect, and criticised the admin

the Adamson bill for what he called

lilt new Wilson policy is sordtd
and base. He says he wishes ,for
friendly, political and trade relation's

citizens go forth and trade for their

so at their own peril, while we sit

The dreadful stories of Mexico and

the Wilson policy. When President
Wilson condemns Americans in
sweeping terms as adventurers who

facts, but is a' subterfuge to keep
men's minds away from the horrible
