Explosion of l-Iashlight Starts Hu
mor of Throwing of Bomb, but
Result Is Not Serious and
Hughes Is Unperturbed.
NEW YORK. Nov. 4. Charles E.
Hughes closed his campaign for the
Presidency in this city tonight with
a big meeting at Madison-Square
Carden. The speech he delivered was
his fifth of the day and followed four
In the open air in different parts of
the city in the afternoon.
Before the night meeting Mr. Hughes
rode at the head of a great torchlight
procession called a "'wheel of flame,"
the nine "spokes" ol which converged
on Fifth avenue. Many thousands of
men. each carrying a flaming torch,
were in line as me processions came
together, one after another. Fo long
was the parade that it was split into
two sections, one of which marched up
Fifth avenue and the other up Madison
avenue to the Garden.
The broad avenues were filled with
long ribbons of light as the Republican
cohorts moved onward. Interspersed at
frequent intervals were bands which
played martial and patriotic airs. The
car in which the candidate rode was
the only automobile in line.
KlashliKlit Kxploalon Alarm.
Much excitement was caused by an
explosion in North street only a few
feet from Mr. Hughes as he sat in his
automobile waiting for one of the di
visions of the parade to start. It was
believed at first that a bomb had been
hurled at the nominee, but Inspector
Egan, of the Bureau of Combustibles,
declared a photographer's flashlight
powder caused the explosion. The only
persons injured, the police said, were
two newspaper men, who were slightly
With Mr. Hughes in his car were
A. B. Hepburn and two detectives. The
nominee did not seem perturbed by the
incident and smilingly , acknowledged
the plaudits of the crowds through
which he passed as the paraders moved
on, 14 abreast.
A drizzling rain, which began falling
Just as the parade bejran, dampened
somewhat the ardor of the demonstra
tion which greeted the Republican can
didate, but cheering crowds lined Fifth
avenue from the time he passed under
the Dewey Arch in Washington Square.
Police Arrangements Improved.
More adequate and elaborate police
arrangements at Madison Square and
in that vicinity prevented a repetition
of the crush which greeted President
Wilson Thursday night. The big build
ing was comfortably filled at 7 o'clock,
but most of the crowd which had gath-i
ered evidently wanted to see the pa
rade before seeking admission. Every
seat was taken, however, when the
blare of bands heralded the candidate's
Mrs. Hughes, accompanied by her
three daughters. Helen, Catherine and
Elizabeth, Mr. and Mrs. Charles E.
Hughes. Jr., and several 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 Pres
William A. Prendergast.' Controller
of the city of New York, formally
opened the meeting at 7:50 o'clock.
Speaking of a re-unlted Republican
party he referred to that "wonderful
American," Theodore Roosevelt. In
stantly the crowd began to cheer and
the demonstration lasted several min
utes. Demonstration Lants 40 Minutes.
Mr. Hughes entered the hall at 9:15
while Governor Whitman was speak
ing. The Governor's speech was
abruptly ended by a prolonged roar by
the audience. The crowd then began
to shout "Hughes, Hughes, Hughes;
we want Hughes." The nominee waved
a small flag. The crowd settled down
sfter 15 minutes to a steady rythm of
"Hughes, Hughes. Hughes." The cheer
ing had been going on 26 minutes when
Mrs. Hughes was escorted to the bal
cony beside her husband. At this the
nudience redoubled Its noise. Charles
r.. Hughes, Jr.. and his wife followed
then the nominee's daughters, so that
the nominee's entire family was
grouped around him.
At the end of 30 minutes the -crowd
had settled down to a steady stamp
ing of feet in unison. A band played
a verse of "Auld Lang Syne," and when
it stopped the cheering and stamping
A mammoth flag was unfurled from
the ceiling, the band played the "Star
Spangled Banner" and the audience
ceased cheering to sing. Mr. Hughes
was introduced at 9:55 o'clock after
the demonstration had lasted 40 min
utes. "My voice is worn but my heart is
stout and my confidence . is complete
that we are marching to a triumphant
victory next Tuesday. ' "began Mr.
Hughes. "When I first heard your
greeting it seemed to sound like a con
vention, but after a while I thought
It sounded like an election.
National Prestige Desired.
"It has been quite apparent for some
time that the American people were
about to record a very decisive con
viction. 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 interna
tional prestige and the rights of Amer
ican citizens shall be protected
throughout the world.
"The way to preserve peace is to de
serve 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 Nation
shall stand erect before the world with
conscious self-respect, prepared for
every emergency, devoted to the ideals
of justice, not truculent, not threaten
ing, but exhibiting firmness and con
sistency and indomitable spirit which
will show that we mean what we say
and that we say what we mean.
"We cannot maintain our peace if we
let any nation be under any misappre
hension as to the true sentiment of the
United States. We ought not to per
mit misunderstandings of our true in
tentions and firm convictions. We
should in that way merely aid in the
creation of feelings which would in
dubitably breed resentment and in crit
ical emergencies out would flame that
old spirit of American patriotism.
I'nflt Men Merit Distrust.

they cannot trust an administration
which has permitted itself to place at
the head of our great bureaus of ad

Miss Jeannette Rankin decisively swept the state of Montana in the pri
maries for nomination for Congress on the Republican ticket. If she is
elected she will be the Nation's first feminine Representative.'
Here is the platform she expects will land her in Washington: ' National
woman suffrage, child welfare, tariff revision, prohibition for state and Na
tion, greater publicity in Congressional records.
Miss Rankin is small, slight, with light brown hair not red, no her
friends say, rather heatedly. She is a graduate of the University of. Mon
tana and of the School of Philanthropy of New Tork City. Congress would
be greatly benefited by her beauty. Other accomplishments of Miss Rankin
are the making of her own clothes stunning ones, too and her hats, and
she is also an excellent cook.

"I think that the Amecican people
are about to record their dissatisfac
tion with the state of our industrial
preparedness. I think that they are
alive to the very serious situation in
which we are placed at this time. It
will not do to make light of it. It
will not escape attention by various
animate versions and destructive criti
cisms with regard to American business
Mr. Hughes referred in detail to the
situation in Europe, reiterating his
conviction that a protective tariff
would be necessary to aid American in
dustry in meeting commercial competi
tion with Europe after the war.
"We are told that a tariff commis
sion has been created. I believe in a
tariff commission. But a tariff com
mission does not pass bills. Congress
"Our opponents talk as though by
creating an agency they had provided a
remedy. They created an agency,
which can be disregarded as they
chodse. Only today, in the face of
these economic facts which .should en
gage thoughtful attention of the Ad
ministration, when every nation in
Europe is adopting the protective prin
ciple, even Great Britain preparing to
aaopi tne protective principle, we nave j
protection, without any serious thought
with regard to the necessities of safe
guarding the interests of American
labor and American enterprise.
Class Bitterness Denounced.
"I am not interested in a country
devoted to the special prosperity of a
few. That is not my conception of the
aim of the administration of our coun
try, but when I hear anyone denounce
class bitterness, class antagonism and
the lawful results of arraying group
against group, I want him to take care
that he does not stimulate that very
class bitterness and class antagonism
which is thus justly denounced.
"Let us go forward, not in words, not
in phrases, not denouncing class an
tagonisms while we do our utmost to
stimulate them; but let us go forward

the foreground of achievement because

of her feeling of co-operation, which

"There has been much talk in these
later days about labor vote. I want
to say this: You cannot buy the labor
vote; you cannot coerce the labor vote;
you cannot frighten the labor vote;
you cannot impose upon the labor vote

or by any kind of vilification of mo
"If I am elected President, and I
expect to be elected President, we
shall have an administration which
has no interests but the interests of

not be .coerced by threat from any
quarter. It will not be deflected by
any alien machination. It will not be
made to subserve any ulterior purpose.

"We propose to have an American
administration meeting the problems
of the 30th century in the American
manner; that is according to the rule
of reason; and thus we expect to have

CHICAGO, Nov. 4. Managers of the
Western Republican and Democratic
National headquarters finished their
work today and ended the National
campaign in the- territory under their
direction, which embraces the' states
lying between Ohio and the Pacific
Coast. Heads of departments in both
headquarters left for their homes to
vote next Tuesday. Alvin T. Hert.
manager of' Western Republican head
quarters, issued his final statement on
the outcome of the Presidential elec
tion, which reads as follows:
"Hughes and Fairbanks are sure-to
carry the following states, and thereby
will secure a lars:e majority in the elec
toral college: Maine. New Hampshire,
Vermont, Massachusetts, Rhode Island.
Connecticut. New York. New Jersey,
Pennsylvania. Delaware. West Virginia,

Miss Harriet E. Vittum. director of
the women's department at Western
Republican National headquarters, is
sued the following statement analyzing
the situation in the 12 woman suffrage
"The swing of the last 10 days to Mr.
Hughes has been perhaps more notice
able In the women's department than
in any other. As the reports come daily
from the 16 Western states, they are
more and more con-lncing. Thousands
of women who three weeks ago were
accepting Mr. Wilson because they be
lieved he has kept us out of war have
been influenced by the presentation of
facts and perhaps more than anything
else by the statement of the Judge-advocate
of the Army that legally and
technically we are at war.
"Out in Wyoming the 'kept-us-out-of-war"
cry had its effect until a few
weeks ago, when their own boys were
ordered to the. front. Idaho and Ne
vada were for a while in the doubtful
column, but the women of those states
have" responded to the cry of their un
enfranchised sisters of the East, and
their votes will largely go to the sup
port of the nian who stands for the
Federal suffrage amendment, who has
promised to push it through Congress.
California Reclnred In I
"California early swung Into line, and
the women of that state. Republican
and Progressive, are working together
in a campaign for tho election wf Mr.
he following statement was Issued
John C. Eversraan. secretary of the
Republican Congressional Campaign
Committee, which has directed its light
for a Republican Congress ffom Chi
cago: "The next House of Representatives
will be Republican by a margin of at
least 43. Most of the gains will come
from the Western states. This estimate
gives the Democrats the benefit of all
doubtful districts. I have received re
ports Indicating Republicans will gain
Congressional seats in Arizona, Ken

Indiana. Iowa, Kansas. Michigan. Min
nesota. Missouri, Nebraska. New Jersey.

vania. Rhode Island, South Dakota,
Tennessee, Utah, Washington, West
Virginia 'and Wisconsin."
Mrs. George Baw, who has been in
charge of the woman's department at
Western Democratic National head
quarters, issued a statement saying in
Our hopes are high for victory ior
President "Wilson. As the campaign
draws to a cloee I think it will be con
ceded that one of the outstanding fea
tures of this Presidential election has
been the fact that the woman vote is
the balancing factor.
"Women's Vote Held Decisive.
'In many of the 12 voting states, not
ably Illinois, it is admitted that 'as
vote the women, so goes the etate.' In
Illinois, perhaps to a greater extent
than In any ptlier state, the women
have been and are the unknown quan
tity. "Our literature dealing with Presi
dent Wilson's record In keeping us out
f war and his successful efforts to
pass the child labor law and other
humanitarian measures has been espe
cially sought and our supply has not
been adequate to meet the demand.
"Our reports, based on trie Dest
sources of Information available, have
been encouraging from the beginning.
At the very outset there was a marKea
drift of the Progressive women toward
President Wilson. We have tried to
get the truth about President Wilson
and hia splendid record before the
women voters and leave the rest to
their understanding of the need of con
tinuing his Administration."
"Walsh Predicts Victory
Senator Thomas J. Walsh, manager of
Western Democratic National head
quarters, said his detailed tabulated
prediction regarding the outcome of the
election In the Western etates had been
incorporated. In the statement Issued
by Vance C. McCormick, chairman of
the Democratic National Committee in
"I have nothing to add to the state
ment that I Issued early In the day.
when I said that I believed that Presi
dent Wilson will be re-elected by the
largest popular vote ever given a can
didate tor President in the history of
the country," said Senator Walsh.
