ADAMSON LAW ATTACKED
Candidate Says If He la Elected
President He Will Protect
4 American Rights on
Ijand and on Sea.
OGDENSBUKG, N. Y., Oct. 28.
Charles E. Hughes told an audience
here tonight that if ha were elected
Tresident he would protect American
rights on land and sea. "There must
be with us, as with our fathers," ho
added, "a willingness to sacrifice for
the oountry that we love."
Mr. Hughes was speaking before a
large audience here. Earlier in the day
lie had' asserted that he did not "be
lieve you can buy the labor vote in
that way" in his discussion of the en
actment of the Adamson law. In his
speech here tonight Mr. Hughes, after
declaring that "it is love of country,
not love of dollars, that will make
America, great," said:
"We want material advancement.
We want to have the greatest pros
perity we can achieve, but it is a
mistake to suppose that with nations,
&e with men, great development and
success can be attained if there are low
and unworthy ideals which dominate
action. It is the lofty patriotic ideal
that must beckon us cn. and to which
wo must be faithful. We must have
a driving power in this country, a
power which engenders a dominant
tense of unity and areepect for the
privileges of Americancitizenship.
Sacrifice Weed Cited.
"If I am elected we shall have an
American Administration with no de
flection to serve any ulterior interests
and with no deflection for the purpose
of bending to the policy of any foreign
power for the purpose of meeting any
foreign machinations of any sort
whatever. What we hope is to have
an American Administration four
square to the world, maintaining
American rights on land and sea with
respect to life, property and com
merce. There must with us aa w.ith
our fathers, be a willingness to sacri
fice for the country that we love.
"I do not want to be President of a
people that are not ready to give
their all for their liberties, their land,
their country that they love.
"Now arises some one to say that
there have been those going through
the lan-i who have said a vote for me
is a vote for war. I am devoted to the
Interests of peace. I have spent all
my life in connection with the institu
tion of peace.
Victory at Folia Predicted.
"The manifestations of interest which
have greeted me today show beyond
any question, as it seems to me, that
we are marching steadily forward to a
decisive victory on the 7th or? No
vember. "We must take a view of the pri
mary duty of the executive. What is
it? The very words suggest the an
swer. He is primarily the executive.
It is not bis function to barter; it is
not his function to grant or withhold
privileges of citizenship. He is the ex
ecutive of the people. He Is entrusted
with the business management of the
great affairs of the Nation. And his
first duty is to give a first-class, ef
ficient business administration of the
Government of this country.
At the very outset of his administra
tion there were called to the high po
sitions of Secretary of State and Secre
tary of the Navy positions closely re
lated to our interests men of amiable
qualities, men of excellent character,
but men clearly unequal to the high
duties of those positions. We cannot
attend to American business in that
way. And recently we have found our
Secretary of War so busy explaining
his unfortunate utterances that it
seems he could hardly have time to at
tend to the necessary duties of his of
fice. It is of little importance that we
fchould have vast appropriations for pre
paredness unless we have the most
(competent administration in the spend
ing of public money.
i Seir-Reapeet Pat First.
"A vote for me is a vote for peace,
but is a vote for the maintenance of
American rights and peace with honor,
and lasting peace. What a mistake it
is to suppose you can conserve your
peace and forfeit your self-respect.
You live in a world where friendship,
our friendship, is desired by all. We
desire the friendship of every nation.
We have certain rights. Our citizens
are understood to have certain rights.
It is well known that under the rules
and principles of international law the
privileges of citizenship should be rec
ognized. "What can be thought of any nation
that fails to understand and appreciate
the dignity of its citizenship? It can
not command respect. It is sure to in
vite insult. It will decay by virtue
01 me very tact mat it is not equal
to the proper assertion of its demands.
We want courteous and firm insistence
upon that to which we are entitled,
with a consistency and power which
Will command the respect of the world.
Flag Should Be Peace Symbol..
"If we want peace, we must have the
confidence and esteem of other nations.
They must respect us. There is no hope
otherwise. We shall be driven here and
there. We shall forfeit our reputation
for competency and understanding cf
our position if we are not firm in the
maintenance of known rights.
"There is no basis for the suggestion
that we should be drawn into complica
tions All we need to do is assert in a
manner that will be convincing, what
our rights are, and those Just rights,
properly asserted, according to correct
standards, will be recognized. With it
all, however, must be the recognition of
courageous spirit which will mua our
flag the symbol of peace, of power that
is not misused, but of security to Amer
ican citizens, lawfully prosecuting
their business wherever they may be."
Mr. Hughes campaigned today among
the farmers of Northern New York. Ho
poke chiefly on Republican policies
affecting agriculture, subordinating
other campaign Issues. The protective
tariff, the "need for preparation to
meet the competition of Europe after
the war," and the Adamson law were
the nominee's chief topics. Mainte
nance of American rights on land and
sea, he declared, was essential to all
prosperity and progress.
Timidity Is Criticised.
"We shall accomplish nothing in this
country unless we have the driving
power of patriotic sentiment," be de
clared. "There is no future for a de
cadent people. We do not want war. I
am amazed at the audacity of the as
sertion that a vote for me is a vote for
war. I am a man devoted to peace.
As I look forward, to the futnre there
is nothing1 that I more keenly desire
than an international organization
which will' tend to promote the peace
of the world when this awful conflict
is at an end.
"You cannot hope to maintain your
peace and present to the world the
spectable of a timid people that has for
gotten the courage and Indomitable
spirit of the founders and preservers of
this Nation a people that backs and

Mr. Hughes was nearly run down by
his own special train at Oswego. A
nervous chauffeur drove the automobile
containing the nominee past the land
ing at the railway station directly
across the tracks in front of the slowly
approaching train. When the engine
came into view it was less than 30 feet
from the nominee's automobile. The
chauffeur backed into the car behind
and the engineer jammed on the emer

vented s.n accident. There was a
scramble for safety by the crowd, which
was massed about the car, and no one

the notion of a prosperity suddenly
created and destined to cease when the

Johnson Certain to Go to Senate,
Only Question Being Size of His
Plurality Wet. and Dry
Situation Is Puzzling:.
BY HARRY B. SMITH.
SAN FRANCISCO, Oct. 28. A quick
ening of the interest that naturally
marks the near approach of election
day, and claims on both sides of ap
proaching victory, make up the sum
total of activities in California during
the week gone by. The Republicans
are lar more optimistic than two weeks
or tin days ago. They contend, further
more .that they are not wildly shout
ing in the open air but have "snap
tallies" to back up their assertions.
Summing up the situation, it can be
safely said that Governor Johnson has
long since passed the point where his
election as Senator was questioned.
Now it is entirely a matter of how bis
a majority he will be able to pile up.
There is unquestionably a Hughes ten
dency so far as the- state is concerned
and the outlook is raid to be far bright
er even in San Francisco where the
Democrats have their stronghold.
State Safely Republican.
Shrewd Judges declare that California
at the present writing is-safely within
the Repubblican fold and that appar
ently by a safe lead. Investigations
have shown, so it is declared, that the
labor vote is not so solid on the eight
hour la,w as was presumed to be the
case, and in some Instances there will
be a breaking away from Wilson to
This is particularly true among the
railroad men and there is a growing
feeling that the Adamson eight-hour
bill is more or less political "bunk." to
use a slang expression that fits the
case. This is particularly true of those
railroad men who work under a scale
that means shorter working time than
the eight-hour basis.
Republican interests have taken a
poll of the state that is particularly
comprehensive and the leaders are re
assured in consequence. The poll has
been taken to reach all classes of peo
ple. After such a plan there has been
a poll of various San Francisco dis
tricts; the two great valleys. San
Joaquin and Sacramento, the mining
regions and Southern California.
There is shown to be a growing un
dercurrent of feeling In favor of
Hughes. As has boon hinted, the same
thing stands tor f;-n Francisco- and
while the city will loly give Wilson a
majority, it is nc xpucted that it will
be nearly as largi .-.s has been claimed.
- netting; Even on LCughea.
Wagering on the outcome has not
changed materially from a week ago.
There is plenty of Hughes backing at
evens that the Republicans will carry
California. As against that, the en
thusiastic Democrats are offering to
wager even money Wilson will arry
San Francisco by 12,000, which goes the
betting of a week ago 2000 better.
Republican headquarters assert that
this confidence is misplaced.
If tt counts for anything, and some
times straws show which way the
wind Is blowing, there la a healthier
sentiment for Hughes in the moving
picture houses whenever the candi
date's face appears on the screen than
earlier in the month. Three weeks ago.
Hughes hardly had a handful of ap
plause, while the appearance of Wilson
on the screen was the signal for a
This week, as the writer can testify
from his own experiences, Charles
Evan Hughes was received in a fashion
that might be considered extremely
So far as Hiram Johnson is con
cerned, it is simply a case of figuring
how many votes he will receive. Al
ready it is estimated that he will lead
Fatton by 100.000 and perhaps far
more. There has been no letup in the
Governor's Senatorial campaign, for he
wants to make this as much of a per
sonal triumph as is possible. His popu
larity seems to be growing and he will
go into the Senate on a full tide.
Vote to Be Blggeat in History.
That California will turn out the
greatest vote in the history of the
state is the prediction oo all hands. It
Is a Presidential year for one thing;
the popularity of Governor Johnson is
another matter to be taken into con
sideiatlon; the wets and the drys are
urging the voters out and the Demo
cratic office holders, realizing it is up
to them to make a showing, are doing
their utmost to see to it that the reg
istered vote goes to the polls in Novem
ber. Strangely enough the prohibition sit
uation la as puzzling as it was the
first of the month and no man has
come forward with a prediction of any
sort. It is quite generally conceded
even by the Prohibitionists that
amendment No. I. which would make
illegal the manufacture of wines, beers
and liquors, will fall of passage, but
no one seeifcs to know which way the
cat is going to jump when it comes to
amendment No. 2. This measure, as has
been explained, will wipe out the sa
loons and force the bars out of clubs
and restaurants. It will force those
who care to drink to buy their liquid
stimulants in two-gallon lots and take
them to their homes.
There are hundreds of people who
think the measure is aimed entirely at
the saloons and will vote "yes" for that
The liquor interests have spent
thousands of dollars in making a cam
paign that has been free from vilifica

admit at the same time they have no
figures to support their beliefs.

this, however, for they claim a possi
bility of a strong Hughes vote, which
has been silent but firm. Practically
all the Progressives are with the Re
publicans and the combined vote of the
two parties four years ago had a plu
rality of more than 400 over the Wil

by the Democrats and Republicans say
it will require more changes to Wilson
by Republicans and Progressives than
have been indicated on the surface.

early in the Summer and whooped it
