and his speeches will also leave noth
ing to the imagination as to where he
stands on every proposition, acute and
prospective, that the America. Nation
Mr. Hughes E( for Trip.
"I am entering upon the trip with
the greatest zest," was the assertion
made tonight by Mr. Hughes, candidate

"It will be most gratifying to have

and I am anticipating a very interest
ing series of meetings," he added.

They contain, some clothing enough to
meet any occasion or emergency, tut
chiefly they are crammed with data
concerning Mexico, the condition of th
Army and Navy, effects of the tariff
and many other topics.
Mr. Hughes expects that his speeches
will be assailed in the Democratic press
as he progresses across the country
and back and that in every city he will
encounter some new Issues raised by
the opposition. He is loaded with facts
anj data to meet every such emergency.
Mrs. Hushes Keenly Interested.
Mrs. Hughes, who is a most impor

hij entire public career and particular
ly of his record as Governor of New
York and on the supreme bench. She
shares his Intense fervor in the present
campaign and will be his confidential
adviser on the trip, as she has always
been in all his public career.
At the same time Mrs. Hughes has
made it clear to the reception commit
tees all along the line that she does not
desire any receptions in her behalf. She
prefers self-effacement nd says she Is
traveling as the wile of the Presiden
tial candidate and that he, r.nd not she.
is the person, the people desire to see
and hear. She has a wonderfully clear
and analytical mind and after each
meeting she will be abli to tell her
husband unerringly Just what sort ot
Impression he made and why.
Mr. Hughes does not expect to get

'We particularly regret that stu

and special dental and medical bills.
Any money supplied beyond these
simple needs means that time will be
wasted in spending it. A surplus of
money is one of the biggest handicaps
possible for the youth who expects to
be a good student.
It takes time to run an automobile
and it often leads to life off the cam

WASHINGTON", Aug. S. Reduction of
the income tax exemption from f S000
to 12000 for single persons and from
$4000 to 13000 for those with families
was ordered recommended to the Sen
ate tonight by Democratic members of
the finance committee who are revis

The change is proposed in an amend
ment which would put the additional
$1000 taxes in a separate classification
and Impose on it a normal tax of 1 per
cent. Instead of the 2 per cent as
sessed against Incomes of more than
$3000 for single persons and of more
than 14000 for married persons.
The amendment after an all-day dis

one vote, opposition persisting to the

not disclosed. Those who favored it
emphasized the grsve necessity for
additional revenue, and had estimates
before them showing that the proposed
