The crowd which witnessed the
parade packed the greater portion of
tjiapitoi square, opposite tne notel
where Mr. Hughes was staying. The
nominee reviewed the parade for an
hour and a half and left It still pass-
ing. For four blocks between the
hall and the hotel the crowd was so
dense that Mr. Hughes' car had to
creep at a snail space. .

' About a block from the hall it came
to a atop in the jam, surrounded by
thousands of persons who called on
him for a speech. He. finally: arose.

"For these, they say. will be thrown

"This delicate tribute to my own
endeavora I keenly appreciate. The
eulogy needed only one further touch,
and that was to celebrate the- policy
that led to the (laughter at Vera
Cruz and Carrizal. These, I suppose,
would be regarded by the generous
forces of the -age as peace parties:

spoke, and the hall, was crowded
with an audience that interrupted
him from time to time to cheer and
to voice its own comments on what
he said. These were of a friendly
nature except once when a group
of men cheered for President Wilson.
That was after Mr. Hughes had de
clared, "We cannot afford to open
our markets to the products ot un
In opening his speech Mr. Hughes
paid a tribute to William McKinley.
"I have been standing," he said, "for
a long time reviewing a great parade
m a place eloquent with the memories
of the martyred McKinley, soldier,
representative, governor, president, a
gentle husband, a great statesman and
a true-hearted friend.
I could not but recall the time
when the prestige of the nation was
very high; its international influence
very great, and the demonstration of
the passing throng was significant. to
my mind of a dominant patriotic senti
ment which is to show the deep feel
ing of this country that the rights of
American citizens must be safeguard

A vote for me does not mean a
vote for war, but it docs mean a vote
for maintaining of American rights
throughout the world. ' t . ,
"Therein, 1 think, "lies' the sure path-.
way to national Honor, moral influ
ence, international prestige and of a
lasting security." ' . .
After reiterating his views on the
tariff Mr. Hughes said:
"As I look upon the America of the
future the question is not at all' what
office you hold, There are some peo
ple Who think that it is a great thing
to hold high office. I have held some
high offices and I have been in a po
sition to observe affairs, and I tell
you that the office means the burden
of responsibility every moment and
there, is no satisfaction, so far as I can
see in having anything to do with pub
lic office except with the idea that
you are helping things ahead and deal
ing with things that are of some serv
ice and of some benefit to your fel
low man. That is all there is to pub
lic service. ',
The nominee again assailed the ad
ministration for the enactment of the
Adamson law. .
"The great object, he said, "is
to get things settled rightly and you
Can not get' things settled rightly
unless you attend to them in the right
way,' " - . , '; . i, ; . f
"I say that if there is any griev.
ance. whether it affects-labor-or capi

of my election, I propose to get the
very last 'fact and to understand it
as well as it may oe understood."
Protective Tariff Hi Theme. ,
- Mr. Hughes went through indus
trial cities of Ohio' today, making
the protective tariff Ms chief theme
of discussion. Before audiences at
East Liverpool, Wellsville, Steuben-
ville,' s Mingo Junction, Deoniton,
Zanesville and here tonight the nomi
nee declared, that America i was not
oreoared to! meet the commercial
competition of n 'etiergii;dr Europe

Mr. Hughes was received by au
diences which cheered him freauently,
At East Liverpool, first stop of the
day, he spoke in the open air, his
voice. - combating the noise of the
street 'traffic , before, an audience that
could hear only a part of what he
said. At Wellsville scores of railroad
employed in flielr overalls crowded
around the rear platform of his car
-and applauded hi brief address. At
Mingo junction tne, wnistie ot tne
big steel plant and many locomo

After the Wilson cheer had sub

. Cite Hurley' Statement.
In his' East Liverpool speech Mr.
Hughes touched upon statements m
President Wilson's Cincinnati ad
dress. He declared that the $1000,-
000,000 iitcrease- in American exports
represented "almost exclusively' the
demand ot turope lor American
goods created by the war, The nomi
nee also cited a recent statement at
tributed to Chairman Hurley of the
Federal Trade commission, to uphold
the contention that America is not
prepared to meet the competition ot
fcuropean nations alter tne war.
"Let me tell vou tins, he told tne
crowd at Steubenville, "the iron and
steel manufacturing establishments of
Europe scarcely have been touched
by the war. On the contrary, the
war itselt has caused great increase
in the efficiency and productivity of
those establishments. Further than
that the raw materials used in iron
and steel manufacture have not been
touched by the war. ; .

"It is no time tor men to go tnrougn
the country saying America is ready.
It is not ready. - America has got its
Underwood bill and it has not in the
ranks of our opponents any disposi
tion to change it. They have got their
doctrine to which they have adhered
for generations.' They say we will

this, you would ever put, a majority

"What an extraordinary thing it
is," he said, "that this country which,
through the protective principle, has
built these great industries, should
think for a moment of an abandon

"There are some people who seem
to think that if you are going to build

tecture. Foundation Necessary.

From the beginning Studebaker has recognized that Ser
vice in connection with the purchase of a motor car is just
as vital to its operating efficiency as the high grade ma
terials and workmanship that go into its construction.
In fact Studebaker does not consider Its responsibility fully
discharged until every detail of care and, operation is
thoroughly understood by the owner. s . ,
To thi end there has been established what Is known as Studebaker
DEFINITE Service. This consists of a thorough inspection of every
Studebaker car, at regular Intervals, for a period of six months
after purchase. Not only does this guard against motor troubles
which prevail in any car, but it educates the owner to the proper
' care of his car so that he can get 100 pleasure and usefulness
-from it every day in the year, j
