HUGHES PLEDGES ALL PROTECTION 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 whatever. 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. Preposterous Suggestion. :"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 siaiciiicui as 411 uuwuiuiy aim (jiciiys- terous suggestion. I am devotep to the interests of peace. , I have spent all my life in connection with the in stitution of peace. "The manifestations of interest which have greeted me today show beyond any question, asit seems to me, that we are marching steadily for ward to a decisive victory on the 7th of November. "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 tions. We cannot attend to. American business in that way. And recently we have found our secretary of war so busy explaining his unfortunate utterances that it seemsjie could hard ly have' time to attend to the ncces- (Contlnoed on at Two, Colamn Two.)

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 message? - 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 route. ' 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 Lest we forget but we must not forget. FROM EPISCOPAL TO CHRISTIAN CHURCH , ' 1 . :j . Rev. Dr. Buxton, Rector of St. Paul's, Council Bluffs, Re signs Pastorate. 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 retreat, aJVltini ;thaUi.wqul(i Jt) tfr after devote himself as a clergyman 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 iornis text lukc :i; Ana ne ciosea the book." ' 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 ate tones: "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 church: v "1. The Episcopal church does not base its authority'upon tlx; holy scrip tures, but upon dogma and ecclesias tical legislation. It has substituted sacerdotalism and tradition for the au thority of God's- word. "2. Its clai mto apotolic succession is unwarranted and cannot be sus tained by New Testament interpreta tion. "3. Although the rubric in its prayer book directs to dip, yet it does not practice the apostolic method of bap tism, which is very plain to anyone (Continued oa rage Two, Column four.)

Reads to His Congregation 'Some of the "got" Letters He Has Received. 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?"

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. A Citizen Rights.

' 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.
