IF HE jS ELECTED
Would Not Want to Be Presi
dent of People Who Would
Not Give Their All for
Country They Love.
AN AMERICAN EXECUTIVE
Will Maintain Rights of Life,
Property and Trade on '
Land and Sea.
IS CONFIDENT OF VICTORY
Ogdensburg, N. -V., Oct. 29.
Charles E. Hughes told an audience
here tonight that if he were elected
president he would protect American
rights on land and sea. "There must
be with us as with our fathers," he
added, "a willingness to sacrifice for
the country that we love." ,
Mr. Hughes was speaking before a
large audience here. Earlier in the day
he had asserted that he did not "be
lieve you can buy the labor vote in
that way" in his discussion of the
enactment of the Adamson law. In
his speech here tonight Mr. Hughes,
after declaring that "it' is love of
country, not love of dollars that will
make America great.
Must Have Driving Power. ,
"We want material advancement.
We want to i have the greatest pros
perity we can achieve, but it is a
mistake to suppose that with nations,
as with men, great development and
success can be attained if there are
low and unworthy ideals which domi
nate action. It is the lofty, patriotic
ideal that must beckon us on, and to
which we must, be faithful. We must
have a driving power in this country,
a power which engenders a dominant
sense of unity and a respect for the
privileges of American citizenship.
"If I am elected- we shall have an
American administration with no de
flection to serve any ulterior interests,'
and with no deflection for the purpose
oi bending1 to the policy of any for
eign iwnu iui mt- pu.pvB.. v. .....B,
any foreign machinations of any sort
Must Be Ready to Sacrifice.
"What we hope is to have an
American administration, four squares
to the world, maintaining American
rights on land and sea, with respect
to life, property and commerce, Tiere
must be with us as with our fathers
a willingness to sacrifice for the coun
try that we love. . 1
"There is no hppe.jfor a. ..decadent
people. You may pass laws as you
please. You may have what party
in power you please,, but unless yon
have that love of, country which pre
served us in that awful struggle fifty
years ago, unless you have that pa
triotism which will make you have
some of the ideals of our institutions
of the liberties which we have gained
here, it is idle to talk about the fu
ture of the United States.
:"I do not want to be president of a
people that are not ready to give their
all for their liberty, their land, their
country that they love.
"Now arises some one to say 'that
there have been, those, going through
the land who have said a vote for me
is a vote for war. I repudiate that

me, that we are marching steadily for

"We must take a view of the pri
mary duty of the executive'. What is
it? The very words suggest the an
swer. He is primarily the executive.
It is not his function to barter; it is
not his function to grant or withhold
privileges of citizenship. He is the
executive of the people. He is en
tnfcted with the husiness management
of the great affairs of the nation. And
his first duty is to give a first-class,
efficient, business administration of
the government of this country.
Unequal to Duties.
"At the very outset of his adminis
tration there were called to the high
positions of secretary of stajte and
secretary of the navy positions close
ly related to our interests men of
amiable qualities, men of excellent
character, but men very clearly un
equal to the high duties of those posi

Lest We Forget-BuifWe Must Not Forget!
Lest we forget, let us jog our memories a little bit to
recall the war taxes imposed by -this democratic Wilson
administration during time of peace to keep the wheels of
government revolving, these war taxes having been re
. pealed only a few months ago for fear of their deadly ef
fect on democratic fortunes in the impending election.
Do you remember, Mr. Business Man, how for three
democratic years you put a stamp on every note you made
out or renewed at the'bank?
Do you remember, Mr. Real Estate Man, how you had
to affix a democratic -revenue stamp on every deed and ,
mortgage executed and recorded? .'
Do you remember, Mr. Investor, how you had to have
a stamp, representing a democratic tax, on ajvery certifi
' cate of stock and every bond to make it a legal security? ,
Do' you remember, Mr. Grain Map and Mr. Comrn' ""
sion Man anrl Mr. RvprvhnHv. whn" r.nmmiinfoar.Mi?'" .
customers over the wire, how you had to pay an ef
cent on every telegram and every long distance telephone
Do you remember, Mr. Insurance Man, how you had
to paste a revenue stamp on every policy you delivered in
those democratic years?
. Do you remember Mr. Shipper, how on every bill-of-lading
you took out, under this democratic administration,
you had to contribute to the treasury by the stamp tax
Do you remember, Mr. Druggist, how every bottle
and package of proprietary medicine, tooth paste, per-,
fume, etc., which you sold, cost you the amount of the
revenue stamp representing the democratic war tax?
Do you remember, Mr. Confectioner, how every box
oi cnewmg gumyou handled, made, you fork over to the
democratic tax collector?
Do you remember, Mr. Movie Man, that the federal
license tax you are paying is part of this democratic peace
time war-revenue scheme and that President Wilson
J actually proposed, although he did not press to adoption,
a percentage tax on your box office receipts? v ,
All these taxes bore the stamp of a democratic ad
ministration and embody the democratic idea of revenue
raising. If they again need the money, as they are pretty
certain to do, won't a democratic administration put these
taxes back, augmented and multiplied? , , v

FROM EPISCOPAL TO

Rev. Dr. Buxton, Rector of St.

FINDS TOO MANY DOGMAS
Rev. A. G. A, Buxton yesterday
morning not only preached hisjare
well sermon as rector of St. Paul's
Episcopal church in Council Bluffs,
bit announced his final withdrawal
from Ah church and its ministry; in,
taking the course he left no means of

fo the work ef the ministry oi the
Christian church and will assist Rev.
Edgar Price for the next month or
so, conducting it series of meetings
in the First Christian- church here. :
The. withdrawal of Rev. Mr. Bux
ton'from the Episcopal ministry and
conclusion of his work as rector of
the church here was dramatic. The
church was crowded. The rector took

In an easy conversational tone Rev.
Mr. Buxton recounted 'what had
taken pjace in the church during his
ministry, its ' growth in membership
and spirituality; his . constant and
earnest effort to proclaim the gospel
as its truth appealed to him. He
referred to the work accomplished,
mentioning the establishment of All
Saint's chapel and the erection of the
building. He spoke of" the warmth
of tjie friendships formed and the
spread of the influence of the church
outside its ecclesiastical limits.
Makes the Announcement.
The announcement of the with
drawal from the ministry did not
come until thf farewell to the con
gregation had been concluded.
Rev. Mr. Buxton stood surveying
the audiejice for a moment in silence
and then said, in a clear and deliber
"You kno.w the Christ said to His
disciples, 'all of you shall be-offended
because of me. this night.' If I had
stood in an Episcopal pulpit in the
sixteenth century and read what I
am going to read to you now, I
would have been burned at the stake
before Saturday night. I am tired
of creeds and dogmas. I have lost
all interest in them, and as the Epis
copal church is a maze of doghas
that I can no longer accept, I must
leave it to secure the larger liberty
my oul craves. Here are some of
the reasons why I can no longer re
main a priest of the church."
The speaker then read slowly and
with great dramatic force, this type
written statement after he had sharp
ly criticised Bishop Morrison:
Reasons for Action.
"My parishioners will always re
member that I have preached to them
the gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ
and while 1 have not been as active
from a worldly point of view as some
would like to have had me, yet I have
endeavored in every way to be a true
minister of the Christ.
"My religious convictions will no
longer permit me to remain in the
Episcopal ministry and I must serve
my, Master regardless of salary or so
called social standing. To serve Christ
means that one must fight for right
eousness and the truth rather than to
obey a man-made ecclesiastical fancy.
The following are some of the reasons
for my leaving the Episcopal and en
tering the ministry of the Christian
v "1. The Episcopal church does not
base its authority'upon tlx; holy scrip

sacerdotalism and tradition for the au

"2. Its clai mto apotolic succession
is unwarranted and cannot be sus
tained by New Testament interpreta

' Unrestrained enthusiasm and full
voiced approval of tha. republican
policies, as outlined by prominent re

SEVERE CRITICISM !

'Some of the "got" Letters

DEFIES HIS ASSAILANTS
Choosing, as his theme, "Christian
Charity," Rev. T. J. Mackay, pastor
of All Saints' church and' the clergy
man who publicly espoused the cause
of the "wets" in the current prohibi
tion fight, defied those prohibition
ists who abuse him to show the error
in his argument for the high-lcense
regulation of the liquor traffic.
"Jesus Chrjst, knew lie was right
when he expressed his opinions. I
believe I am right and 1 am willing
to stand by my beliefs until Judg
ment Day," said the pastor. .
"My daughter answered a phone
call in our home the other day and
a fanatical woman at the other end
of the wire asked her, without any
preface, "Wha.t kind of a drunk 'was
vour father on when he wrote that
advertisement for the Prosperity
League?" Think of my daughter be
ing asked a question like that. .
i Poor, Poor, Clergyman,
"One woman writes to me to call
me 'my poor, poor, poor, clergyman.'
Another advises me to go itno the
liquor business with Tom Denison
and suggesets a busincs sign reading,
'Denison & Mackay, dealers in wines,
liquorst and all kinds of vice.' A
third woman's note says: 'Hell will
be the richer for you and your friends,
the brewers.'1 A Congregational
clergyman hope9 to see me driven in
disgrace from the Ohristian ministery.
A female writes to tell me, 'Metz
paid for your daughter's education
and your I trp o Europe. That's
why you are against prohibition.'
What do you think of the spirit
that prompts these writers? It ia-rrot
the spirit of Christianity. It is the
spirit of churchianity, the same motive
which fostered rcghgious persecutions
in the past and is even now, in this
enlightened twentieth century, the
basic element of all intoleration of
Other persons' opinions. We shudder
at these things m the name ot the
meek and lowly Jesus. Truly we can
say, Oh, Christianity, what crimes'
are committed in thy name.

of constructive, law-abiding citizens.
That above all they must be true
Americans and stand by their country
was the further contention of Judge
Baiter, who promised that if elected
he will oppose special favors to any
one, but will at all timet, look to the
welfare ofi all Americans equally, re
gardless oK race or class. .
Duty to Citizens. .
John L. Kennedy, republican candi
date for the United States senate, de
clared two of the most important
questions in the present campaign are
the duty of the government to its citi
zens, and the place this country should
hold in the council ofTlatioiis. '. He
discussed the nation's responsibility
fo its cjtirens, insisting that while the
nation has a right to demand and re
ceive undivided allegiance from every
cititen, foreign bbrri and native horn,
in return, it should give absolute pro
tection at all' times. ' l.
"When any other nation blacklists
our merchants, and this nation per
mits it, the nation is not meeting its
Obligations to its citizens," Mr. Ken
nedy told his listeners.
To get the right kind of loyalty
from its own citizens Mr, Kennedy
drove home the point that the nation
must protect them in their rights.

that the Adamson bill has created. He
said: "If President Wilson had with

then would he have been surrendering
