Criticism of Strike Settlement
Subject of His Nashville
Speech
By Perry Arnold.
(United Press staff correspondent.!
Louisville, Ky., Sept. 5. Only' the
usual railroad station crowd was on
hand here today when Charles Evans
Hughes' car was backed in. There were
no cheers or other signs of enthusiasm.
The candidate is en route to Lexington,
Ky., where he will speak today.
A. T. Hart, in charge of the western
headquarters of the national committee
got aboard for a conference with the
nominee and the two remained together
in the governor's private car during the
half hour wait here.
The governor nnd Mrs. Hughes went
to the station platform to pose smiling
ly for a local photographer and to take
a morning stroll.
It became known todny that the noih
inee is plaunning to address men of the
Plnttsburg, N. Y.. enmp if this can be
arranged. A tentative schedule already
mapped out for him includes a visit to
the preparedness enmp, September 12,
making Hughes return to New York one
dav later than hud been originally plan
ned, Before the candidate's car left the
station a band straggled into the train
shed and by playing southern melo
dies evoked applause in which was
blended cheers for Hughes.
The original plan had been for
Hughes to make a train speech, but ap
parently this idea was nbandoned' be
cause a crowd was missing. The candi
date did not show himself for some time
and no one at the station seemed to
care whether he did or not.
. Faced Hostile Audience.
The republican nominee was a differ
ent person thnn the man who a little
over four weeks ago started off on a
transcontinental campaign trip.
l'roh-
ably no public speaker, let alone a
presidential candidate, ever underwent
such an experience ns Hushes did at the
Ryman auditorium in Nsshvbille last
night.
He faced nn audience that was
packed" against him and distinctly
unfavorable to his views. The crowd
started a Wilson demonstration. They
hissed and hooted the G. O. P. nominee.
Hughes, fighting mad nt the insult
which he considered had been given
Mrs. Hughes, who was present on the
platform with him, simply struck out
straight from the shoulder and rammed
home his bittor criticism of the demo
"atic administration with a new line of
hot shot. He attacked the strike set
tlement recently achieved by President
Wilson and had the satisfaction of hear
ing eheers and applause from the south
erners for his fighting spirit and his de
termination to fight it out.
Naturally the candidate was in good
humor today and the stimulus of the
night's meeting still stood with him. He
was also enjoying a good joke which
some of his party had agninst'him.
Secretary Lawrence H. urcen opeucu
the morning's mail today, and nearly
faiuted when bo saw a check on a St.
Louis bank for $2",000. No letter ac
companied the "contribution" und it
looked mighty good'to Green. He took
it back to the governor in a hurry.
Then when the two came to look over
the contribution, they found it was a
counter-check on a St. Louis bnnk, made
out to the order of Charles Evans
House nnd signed "Hughes per Secre
tary J. Lansing." On tho back the per
son who made the contribution had in
dorsed iu a flowing hand the signature
"Eduard James Porter, Esq."
