Attacks on Republican Poli
cies, Made By Davis and
La Follette, Taken Up One
By One, in Speech
Accuses Adversaries of Com
bining to Throw Elec
tion Into Congress
HALTIMORfcJ, : Md., Oct. 23. A
sweeping defense of. the foreign
policy of the Harding-Coolidge ad
ministration was made here to
night by Secretary Hughes. In i
campaign speecn answering one
by one the criticisms made against
his department by John W. Davis
and ' Robert M. La Follette, the
secretary of state denied that the
secret committments had been nei
gotiated abroad; declared tfieFe
had-, been "no" trend toward !a
foreign policy based on imperial
ism; asserted that thosewho at
tempt to belittle the work of the
arms conference only belittle
themselves; insisted that the
league of nations was not a cam
paign issue; and reaffirmed the
desire of the administration to
ta;ke every practicable step, for
world cooperation, j j
Touching briefly on domestic
issues, Mr. Hughes said neither
the democratic party nor the In
dependent ticket now expected to
win on November 4," and that
there were many evidences of j-a
combination :to throw the election
Into congress. ; He repeated that
the democratic organization had
gone to pieces in both the east
and west and Baid the democraUc
from government ownership atid
other issues of its own creation.
I Assails Opponents
VWith respect! to the condufct bf
foreign affairs," he continued.
"our opponents have sought every
possible ground for attack, but
their mistakes and misrepresenta
tions have deprived their efforts
of effect.
"it has been changed recklessly
and falsely by the third party that
we have made secret commit
ments.' We have no secret com
mitments with any country, it
has been asserted that our policies
in this hemisphere are imperialis
tic. The contrary is readily shown
by , our, withdrawal from' Santo
Domingo and our constant endeav
ors, as Illustrated by the confer
ence held in Washington of the
Central American republics, to
promote their peace and stability.
We are not seeking a protectorate
or overlordship but desire to see
our sister republics secure inde
pendence and constitutional gov
ernment. " j i - ' .J ,M
It is charged that this govern
ment is engaged in negotiating
concessions for our citizens. This
is untrue. AVe maintain the prin
ciple of the open .door, or equality
of commercial opportunity to the
end that our citizens shall not staf
fer unjust !. discriminations but
shall have the fair opportunity to
whichf they are! fentitled. With
this opportunity they make their
own contracts on their own ternis.
Let it also be remembered that
the force of American arms Is
never pledged j for the fulfillment
of foreign loans or agreements. !
: Praises G, O. I. Record ?
' "Equally futile has been the at
tempt to depreciate our endeavors
which we have made with gratify
ing success for the promotion 6f
neace. What do our opponents of
the democratic party think they
will gain by belittling the Wash
ington conference on limitation of
armament.' Mr. Davis, at the out
set,, saw fit to speak of the con
ference as of 'doubtful value' and
later with1 ill-judged observations
he referred slightly '' to the naval
treaty which the leaders of the
democratic 'party had acclaimed ia
the senate with the highest praise.
Now Mr. Davis is compelled to de
preciate his own deprecations bf
this work. But he still is so an
xious to emphasize what the con
ference did not do that he is utter
ly unable to estimate what was
actually done.; And his latest Ut
terance on this point seems to me
to bf the most inexplicable' and
unworthy of all."

Program Reviewed
Summarizing the administra
tion's program which he said had
"brought an era of more than
average prosperity," the president
called attention that despite the
"natural supposition that every
well-wisher of the country would
be anxious to maintain the pres
ent established order of things,"
there are now proposed "at least
two j of the most revolutionary
changes" government ownership
of transportation and limitation of
the powers of the supreme court.
Public ownership, he described
as a most perilous undertaking,
both to the welfare of bueinesi
the independence of the peo-
r "If powers of the supreme
court were limited as proposed,"
he E&id, "the historian would close
the chapter with the comment that
the people had shown they were
incapable of self government and
the American republic had proved
a failure." j
Promises Reduction I
Mr. Coolidge said further re
duction in federal taxes was pos
sible on the basis of the estimated
government budget for next year,
and he outlined as his "common
sense" method of taxation:
' "Getting ail we can out of thf
rich! by making the rates moder
ate and stimulating business to
provide work and increase ihe
earnings of the poor." i
In foreign affairs, the president
promised cooperation in the inter
est of peace; declared for consti
tutional covenants outlawing ag
gressive warfare, and reaffirmed
his proposal for adherence to the
permanent court of International
Justice. He announced opposition,
however, to participation by this
government in international con
ferences discussing questions of
"purely our own domestic affairs,"
to the cancellation of war; debts
