American liner New York at noon to

8ig Crowds Greet Him He
Announces He Will Make
a Fighting Speech
By J. P. Yoder.
(United Press staff correspondent.)
Battle Creek, Mich., Sept. 30. Re
publicanism 'a reserve artillery was op
ened here in behalf of t'harles E.
Hughes by Theodore Roosevelt this aft
ernoon, It wjs the ex-president 's chief po
litical address of the campaign. In it
he excoriated President Wilson's Eu
ropean and Mexican policies as avoid
ing public duty "by adroit elocution
and by the simple policy of drugging
our sonts with tho narcotic of meaniuir-
1 less phrase mongering, "in which"
tries fi u e wonts have had the meaning
taken, - '
Roosevelt devoted more than a third
of his speech to decrying the stand tak
en by the president in the German con
troversy and in the Mexican situation.
He 'followed with denunciation of the
administration's attitude on prepared
ness. During the Inst half he went
deeply into detail in criticising the
manner in which President YVilssu
averted the nation-wide railroad strike.
"At the outset," suid Roosevelt"I
wish to say a word as to protests made
by so many people that we must not
criticise the president. I did 'stand by
the president' for a year nd a half.
It was with deep reluctance, however,
that I was forced to the conclusion that
to do so longer was incompatible with
standing by the interests of mankind
and the honor of this nation.
"I am convinced the conscience of
this people has been seared and its
moral -sense dulled by the leadership
of the administration and congress dur
ing the last three years.
Opposes Peace at Any Price.
"Mr. Wilson's supporters say we
should vote for him tor keeping us out
of war. It is worth while to remember
this could not have been said in behalf
of George Washington or Abiiihum Lin
coln. These men spurned the tories and
copH-Thcads with contemptuous indigna
tion as feeble and cowardly folk for
urging penceui-anyprice. "
Roosevelt recited in detail the various
unwarned sinkings by submarines of
liners with Americans abunrd. ' 11c re
fers to the l.usituiiin attack as the
"most colossal single instance oT the
minder of uon-.combntnuts, including
men, women mid children that has been
perpetrated by any power cnlling itself
civilized for over a century."
He declared the president "had full
notice as lo what was to be done" and
that he erred in not taking action that
would have stopped it.
"And after it," said Roosevelt, his
teeth flashing in the old wny, niul bis
voice raised to high falsetto, "he ouly
spoke. Ho said something about being
too proud to fight. Imagine George
Washington saying that after the bat
tle of Lexington or Lincoln mnking such

Wilson is Vacillating.
Roosevelt declured the president was
vacillating and reversed himself "even
when he did finally act." "He said the

The Guardian is the first influential
paper in England to withhold approval
of Lloyd-George's declaration that the
war inusUbe carried to s "knockout"
and that neutrals must not intervene at
"To reject all conversation with neu

The Guardian declared Lloyd-George
should concern himself with only mili
tary affairs, letting the premier and
foreign secretnory conduct the foreign
affuirs of the nation. The newspaper
announced that it 'was not necessary for
Lloyd-George to repudiate offers o'f in

was made, declaring that there is no
reason why Britain should not be. will

by Percy Rockefeller, New York City,
here today for the naiiual meeting nt
the stockholdetrs and board of directors
of the Chicago, .Milwaukee & St. Paul

"The I'nited States will be n friend

the greutest f inancial disturbances of ull
times, following the close of the Kiiro
peau war," said Rockefeller.
"About our only hope is conserva
tion," he said. "We have ainiplv got to
keep our heads. Every nation will be
scrambling for tho gold we have gar

trying to get their hands on it nnd it
is going to take some pretty fast think

Shadow Lawn, K. J.f Sept.- 30.'
Warning that a return to republican
ism means tho country will be drawn
In one form or another to the brink of
war, President Wilson this afternoon
urged all young domocrats and truo
progressives to unite in . maintaining
democratic control.. '
"I can draw no other conclusion,"
he said. ''Our opponents ha)e fouud

have said it is all wrong. It has re-,

they want war. Some members of that

"officials of foroign governments will

President Outlines Position.
The Uuited Press is able to outline
authoritatively and in detail on what
basis the president belioves he should
be returned to office.
He holds that-since -the administra
tion of Abraham Lincoln the republican
party has been provincial. It has,
figuratively speaking believed in clos
ing up America anil having a good
tiiue instead. - . . .

party, the president will attempt to
show, has looked outside the bouse in
njiich the United States Is enclosed
has seen there the tremendous world
trade awaiting at our doors and haa
acted to properly meet that market. By
implication, if not by direct interroga
tion, the president may be expected in
his addresses of the next few week's to
ask the republican candidate what he
would do in caso of his election, to
change the foundations already laid
for this trade.
. What Would Hughes Do? ..
The president believes he has estab
lished a policy of International inter
course, any change in which might
prove of vital consequence to the fu
turo peace of the nation. By implica
tion, if not directly, he may be ex
pected soon to question the republican
nominee ns to what changes his party
would ftiuko in the foreign policy.
In the president's opinion, his ad
ministration is an "open book" re
quiring no explanation because it
speaks for itself. He believes, how
ever, that tho people, if they aro asked
to denounce his policies, are entitled to
specific i ii for in ii t i n from Hughes as to
what the republican party would do
should it be placed in power what
would be its definite changes in tha
tariff; what would be its policy toward
Mexico; how would it act in the Mex
ican embrogilo, and what would it dO'
with the Adiim:on eight-hour law.
Can Conditions Be Bettered.
Not what would the republican party
havo done, but what would it, suggest
doing now, is what tho president will
nsk. Until these answers are given
the president may bo expected merely
to explain what he hopes his adminis
trntion may accomplish through its
acts not to dwell at length on the
