CHEERED FORTY MINUTES
(Continued from Fife One.)
Hughes, jr., and some friends, were
among the early arrivals. They occu-.
pied a box in the center of the garden.
The Columbus (O.) Republican Glee
club of 100 voices entertained the
crowd inside the garden with patriotic
songs prior to the arrival of the presi
"My voice is worn but my heart is
. stout and my confidence is complete
that we are marching to a triumph
ant victory next Tuesday," began Mr.
Hughes. "When I first heard yfcur
greeting it seemed to sound like a
convention, but after a whiles I
thought it sounded like an election."
Mr. Hughestsaid he desired to ex
press appreciation of the endeavors
of those many agencies which have
co-operated to bring about the re
sult "to which we look forward so
confidently," mentioning some of the
agencies by name.
"How about Teddy?" shouted a man
in the audience. ' A general laugh
"And I include, of course," the nom
inee said, i moment later, "both of
our distinguished ex-presidents who
have in their earnest support aided
this cause by presenting once more
a -re-united republican party as the
agency of national service.
Shall Regain Prestige.
' "It has been quite apparent for
some time that the American people
were about to record a very decisive
conviction. I think I can forecast the
determination which is to be recorded
next! Tuesday. I believe that the
American people have determined
that this nation shall regain its inter
national prestige and the rights of
American citizens shall be protected
throughout the world.
"Every fdur vears we take, a count
and we do not propose that! the
policies which endanger the peace.

Madison Square Garden Crowd
Cheers Hughes Forty Minutes
New York. Nov. 5. William A. I'rendergast, comptroller of the
city of New York, formally opened the republican meeting at Madison
Square Garden at 7:30 o'clock. Speaking of a reunited republican party,
he referred to "that wonderful American" Theodore Roosevelt. In- '
slantly the crowd began to cheer and the demonstration lasted several
minutes. I - - -
Mr. Hughes entered the hall at 9:15, while Governor Whitman was
speaking. The governor' speech was abruptly ended by a prolonged
roar of the audience. - .
The crowd then began to shout "Hughes, Hughes, Hughes," "We
want Hughes." The nominee waved a small flag. The Crowd settled
down after fifteen minutes to a steady rhythm of "Hughes, Hughes,
Hughes." The cheering had been going on twenty-six minutes when
Mrs. Hughes was escorted to the balcony beside her husband. At this
the audience redoubled its noise. Charles E. Hughes, jr., and his wife
followed the nominee's daughters, so that the nominee's entire family
was grouped around him.
At the end of thirty minutes the crowd had settled, down to
steady stamping of feet in unison. A band played a verse of "Auld
Lang Syne" and when it stopped the 'cheering and stamping begin
A mammoth flag was unfurled from the ceiling, the band played
the "Stars Spangled Banner," and the audience ceased cheering to sing.
Mr. Hughes was introduced at 9:55 o'clock, after the demonstration had
lasted forty minutes.
the security and the prosperity of this
country shall be removed from the
just criticism and reprobation that
they deserve. While we are devoted
to the .-interests of peace, we under
stand very well what are the indis
pensable conditions of maintaining
a permanent peace. It does not aid
us in the safeguarding of our security
to have doubt thrown upon our cour
age and our indomitable spirit in
maintaining our nation's rights.
Way to Preserve Peace.
"The way to preserve peace is to
deserve respect. It is idle for anyone
to say that a criticism of the policies
of the present administration implies
either a desire for war or a tendency
to war. We propose that this .na
tion shall stand erect before the
wof Id with conscious self-respect, pre
pared for every emergency, devoted
to the ideals of justice, not truculent,
nor threatening, but exhibiting firm
ness and consistency and indomita
ble spirit, which will showxjhat we
mean what we say and that we say
what we mean.

we let any nation be under any mis

that the clause is the high-water

"It cannot accomplish the purpose

cannot expect any protection from

world, is not as proud a title as a

On his way to the meeting Mr.

parade which was still passing, five
hours after it started.
"Our opponents talk as though by
creating an agency theyhed pro
vided a remedy. They created an
agency, which they can disregard as
they choose. And only today, in the
face of these economic facts which
should engage the thoughtful atten
tion of the administration, when
every nation in Europe is adopting
