i Republican Candidate Says the
United States Will Maintain
" Its Self -Respect.
! PEOPLE RIGHT IN LONG RUN
' Sullivan, Ind., Nov. 1. Charles .
i Hughes today declared in an open air
; address here that while the United
States does not wish war, it proposes
J to maintain it self-respect. ' The
j American people have realized at this
j time in our history it is very impor-
tant that there should be no question
j of their attitude with respect to the
! maintenance of American rights," Mr.
j Hughes said. "We desire peace, but
j we desire an honorable peace.' We
! do not wish war, but we propose to
! maintain our self-respect. .
"We know perfectly well that there
is no future for the country unless we
; enjoy the friendship of the world.
You evoke only contempt, either si
i lent or expressed, if you do not main
tain firmly and consistently your
j rights. There is no lasting peace
for a decadent people." ,
it Mr. Huehes said that he was sure
I the American people were coming to
i ;their own conclusions with respect to
j the various claims made in the cam-
oaia-n and that in the long run the
; American people do not make mis
people uenerauy Kignt.
"Nothing is more striking," he
said, "in the course of a political cam
paign in this country than the way in
which the American people gradually
form the judgment. We have at the
outset many confusing voices, and in
the course of the campaign there are
many extravagant claims nut forward,
j but the American people recognize as
tne campaign progresses tne dominant
issues that concern their welfare. You
can be sure that in the long run the
American people do not make a mis
take witn respect to wnat. is neces
sary to their orosoeritv and the fu-
; ture of the country. ,
i "I. have felt in theses days a. grow
ls' ing sentiment. There has been a very
ft perceptible current of opinion and It
I' givey me an assurance that the Amer-
1 lean people nave been sitting the va
! rious claims which have been made,
J and have been coming ,to their own
; conclusions. They know perfectly
" well that we are now in a very unsat
' isfactory condition. It is not in my
heart to talk to you in a narrow, par
1 tisan way. As I understand myself, I
. am nere- anxious to serve tne wnoie
)' people of the United States, and what
I have to say is just as important to
! : the interest! .of democrats as repub
. licani. 1
"The American people are realis
3; ing, and I believe are coming swiftly
J. to a judgment that this country will
!, need a basis of prosperity that is not
to be found in a European war. We
, know perfectly well that at this time
we arc in a very unhealthy condition.
: You are interested my largely in
j; farming. When I-was governor of
"New York here was nothing to
!; which I gave greater attention than,.
'. to the development of our agricultural
activities, and if I am elected I pro
pose to do all in my power 1 to pro
mote the interest! of agriculture.
, "It is perfectly idle, however, for
anybody to say that he is a friend of
the development of agriculture in this
country wtien he framed' an Under
wood bill, -which puts most' of our
agriculture products on a free list, or
on such a low rate of duty as not to
furnish our farmers with the protec
tion to which they are entitled. We
have got to have a basis in this coun
try for the development which they

JOHN COPELAND IS
ACQUITTED BY JURY
Alleged Murderer of William
Black Found Not Guilty
After Eighty Hours.
TWO OTHER MEN ACCUSED
.Galvestosi, Tex., Nov. 1. John
Copcland, 'charged with the killing of
William Black, an anti-Catholic lec
turer, was found not guilty by a jury
in the district court here early today.
.The jury reported lifter deliberating
eighty-four hours. Black was killed at
Marshall, lex., February i, 1915.
Twice during their deliberations the
jurors had reported to Judge Clay
Stone Briggs that they could not
reach a verdict, and each time had
been sent back.
Copcland received the verdict with
a smile -and turned to his wife and
little daughter. The three shook hands
with the jurors and thanked them.
Black was killed in a hotel at Mar
shall while Copeland, who was a bank
cashier at that pice, and other men
were calling on him in his room to
ask him to cease his lectures in Mar
shall. Whether the state will insist upon
a trial of the cases of George Ryan
and George Tier, both of whom are
also charged with murder in connec
tion with the killing of Black, will
probably not be known until the De
cember term of court.
