Tomorrow, the last day of his cam

with a big rally at Madison Square
Garden at night. Instead it will be
a whirlwind day of more speaking

tonight the nominee told his audi

say with regard to the issues of the
campaign. On his trip down the Hud

one of the chief themes of his
speeches; here tonight he spoke chief

' "If I am elected president," the
nominee continued, "we shall have
an American administration with ex

any deflection to serve any other
interests. Supreme must be America's
interests in the thoughts of the Amer

America's interests in an administra
tion in my charge."
i In- his tour through Brooklyn to
night, Mr. Hughes campaigned over
ground familiar to him as a boy. The
first meeting he addressed in the
. Green Point section was within three
blocks of the Union Avenue Baptist
church where his father once was
pastor. The streets through which he
passed were those on which he had
played as a boy, he, told the audi-

was at Kismet -hall. On his way
there the nominee passed the house
in which he was married. Here again
he found all space in the hall
crowded with an audience that had
waited two hours to hear him and
hundreds standing in the street. .
"It has been my good fortune dur
ing the last few weeks to speak in
many states," Mr. Hughes said, "and
everywhere there has been manifesta

intense interest of our vital concerns,
but there is something about the gen

abroad. He also assailed the admini

maintenance of American rights
abroad and economy in Vie expenses
of the government.
Conditions which industry in the
United States will fjice at the close
of the war were characterized as
cause for "serious consideration by
every student of our affairs."
' ' Must Look Out for Headache.
'""We want to look out that we do
not have a headache coming to us in
the near future," the nominee told an
audience at Newburgh, "because there
are quite a number of things that we
must carefully consider."
Among the chief of these Mr.
Hughes ranked commercial competi

The High Cost oj Wilson
Washington, D. C, Nov. 2. To the Editor of The Bee:
The story of Wilson's promise to secure $100,000,000 ad
vance in freight rates was given to the newspaper men in the
city of Washington some time in the afternoon and at 6
o'clock it was on the wires for the morning papers through-v
out the land and by 9 o'clock the following morning 50,
000,000 people knew or believed freight rates would be ad
vanced and before the sun had gone down that day the deal
ers had commenced to mark up prices to provide for the an
ticipated advance in freight rates, to protect their business,
and the "consumers began to pay the freight" for the extra
cost of the transportation of their commodities, the necessi
ties of life. '
This was purely a business transaction that was bound to
follow. The consumers are now paying the freight, they al
ways have and always will.
Let the voter think of this: Should Wilson be elected,
with congress at his back that $100,000,000 will be given
the railroads to pay the 25-per
manded by-the men and givento the railroads by the presi
dent of the United States by the passage of the Adamson
bill and with four and one-half years more to serve the
helpless consumers will foot the enormous bill, of $450,
000,000, which will be added to the present "high cost of liv
ing" with prices for the necessities of life dangerously near
those prevailing in London and Berlin.
The higher the cost of food the less the American women
and children will have. Henry Watterson says "God hates a
coward," and the American people at the polls will prove
it. America is not yellow.

disciplined, organized as they never
have been before." The Underwood
tariff Mr. Hughes said, would not
meet the situation as a measure of
protection to American industry".
Our opponents told us four years
ago, Mr. Hughes said at Kingston,
of the wonderful opportunities they
were going to give American buisness.
We know what actually followed. I do
not mean that they were insincere. I
simply mean that .what they think
fitted American life does not work
Tariff Body Not Legislative.
Mr. Hughes said he asked his op
ponents what they were going to do
about safeguarding American industry
and they replied that they had a tariff
commission. A tariff commission he
continued did not pass laws.

for their continued adherence to the
old policy which through the gen
erations they have maintained and the
doctrine which in platform after plat-
lorm tney have asserted. 1 really in a
sense admire their tenacity and the
way in which they ignore the facts of
life in their constancy of spirit."
Jt was no time Mr. Hushes declared
for his political opponents to be sensi
tive about criticism.
"We are takinir account of stock."
he said in his Newburgh speech. "Our
opponents seem to be a little sensi
tive about the stock taking. Thev
seem to have the idea that there ought

the honor of the American name and
result in upholding Americans rights
was not the policy of braggarts, he
said. ' ;' ' ' ' ;' 1 "
"We have not the slightest desire to

boasters," he said. "We have not any
desire to stimulate ill feeling by a
truculent attitude. What we want to
show is this: That in a world of keen
rivalry and excellent understand

showed when they established their
government, our later fathers showed
when they preserved the integrity, of

Negotiations for the present Rus
sian loan covered a period of more
than three months and at one time, it
is said, a loan of as high as $150,
000,000 was considered by American
bankers. The former Russian loan
established a credit in this country
for $50,000,000, which was to run
for three years. Simultaneously the
Russian government established in

other members of the western repub

headquarters, made this statement:
How Vote Divides
"Such part of the progressive vote
of 1912 as will go to )Mr. Wilson
will be largely the vote of men who
were democrats before they became
progressives. Reports that come to
me from all through the west show
that from 85 to 95 er rent of the
progressive vote of 1912 will be cast
thte year for republican candidates.
This means success for Hughes and
Fairbanks." , -
Senator Thomas T. Walsh, manager
of western democratic headquarters,
issued the following statement:
Wilson will be re-elected bv a
greater popular vote than has ever
heretofore been given a oresidential
"Two conditions imnres them
selves upon the mind of every one
wno nas followed the camoaicrn
namely, that an enormous number of
republicans will vote for Wilson and
only a negligible number of demo
crats will vote for Hughes.
"As to the independent vote, so far
as it has been vocal at all, it is for
Wilson. 1 he labor vote -is for Wilson.
Among voters of foreiitn birth a sur
prisingly large number are for Wil

"Prof. Wilson and President Wilson

"Last Saturday at Shadow Lawn,
President Wilson, speaking of the

would have on our trade, that we
would have to wait and find out. I call
his attention to the following state

Berlin, Nov. 4. (By Wireless to

the death of Captain Boelke was giv

agency, as follows:
"Captain Boelke met with the acci
dent in which he was killed at 5
o'clock on the afternoon of October
31. He had just disabled a hostile ma
chine in a fierce aerial combat. At the
conclusion of the battle another Ger
man airplane touched Boelke's ma
chine and part of a plane of the latter
was torn off.
"Captain Boelke descended swiftly
in a narrow spiral for some distance,
but when at a height of about 200
yards his machine suddenly fell. The
body of the aviator was not touched
by projectiles. After having defeated
forty adversaries an accident termi

wherein, speaking of the close of the
Napoleonic wars, he says: 'Peace
changed the facfc of trade. English
merchants poured their goods once
again into the American ports, so long
shut against them by embargoes and
war. It was manifestly injurious to
every young industry that a flood of
English imports should continue to
pour into the country at the open
ports. The remedy was a protective
tariff such as Hamilton had wished
to see at first and the young repub
lican leaders of congress did not hesi
tate to advocate and establish it.''
"Absolutely the only difference be
tween that situation and the ope we
win nave at tne close ot the present
European war is that the democratic
tariff then was 22 per cent, while the
present Underwood tariff, with agri
cultural products free, is running at
this time at less than 9 per cent, the
lowest in our history. In other words,
the Wilson-Underwood tariff bill is
-wofold worse than the democratic
ict at the time of the Napoleonic
wars, and. therefore, if Mr. Wilson's
history is accurate the evil results at
the close of this war will be twice as
bad as they were at the close of the
