operate them and place the revenue
arising from such operation into the

Mr. 'Wilson would have (o raise more
money than the country has to make

THEY JES' LAUGH
"Senator John S. Williams of Mis-

the speech of Mr. Hughes and he said
it reminded hint of an appointment of
a man some years ago as attorn.y
general of the I'nitjd State; v h
had never been able to ma.' a living
at home; so after he had been in office
awhile he went back home t'ui walk

like a farmer and asked what had
'become of so and so (naming him-
self). The first old farmer replied that
he had been appointed attorney gen-

the disguised attorney general "what

FAMOUS EDITOR FOR WILSON.
With aee!!s!omed a curacy ami can-
dor the editor of the Springfield l!e-
publican of Springfield Mass . has re-
viewed the public careers of Woodrow
Wilson and Charles I-:. Hughe with
the earnest purpose of decid rv; upon
the editorial policy of that nowspap'r
in the present campaign.
The Republican is one of the inc.!
jibly odiwd and famous tie . -n r-i in
America. Its editor has wi'.'i d '! the
present campaign to hear b!h candi-
dates before taking side.
Like a candid broa. Intitule pub-
licist lie yields that measi!" of p-at-e
to Mr. Hughes he thinks hi; puhlic
acts must claim but like true pa-
triot he announces his nlb'g.ane.? to
the country's present policies anJ
pledges . his splendid talents hence-
forth to the re-election of Woodrow
The Republican's editorial making
President Wilson the candidate cf iis
choie' has already become a rotable
bit of literature in the campaign. It
says in part : '
Mr. Wilson in the face of (WXieu'ties
and criticism such as have confiv.n' ed
no president since Lincoln has .rcom-
plished much. To declare h's foreiiu
policy futile is idle. The conclusive
answer Is contained in the bitter pre-
tests of the radical faction i'i Ger-
many that the Gorman submarines
have been caught "In a net of notes "
The outstanding fact is that Mr. Wil-
son without bringing the I'nitcd
States into war has forced a recogni-
tion of neutral right.
With relation to Mexico Mr. Wilsiu
has grasped the underlying 'principle
'.hat we shall not have a permanently
peaceful neighbor to the south of use
until tho most patent wrongs under
which the masses of the Mexican peo-
ple have suffered are rlghtcl thn ucu
their own efforts. The recognition of
this principle in the long run n.Mii's
th minimum of evil to this country
from tho Mexican problem. It is to
Mr. Wilson's everlasting crcl't tint ;n
spite of difficulties discouragement!?
and possibly of incidental mis! il;es le
has not wavered in his endeavor :o ap-
ply this principe'lo the changing cir-
lumstanccs of the times.
CHAMP CLARK IN THE STATE
Speaker Clark has carried the dem-
ocratic fire Into the trenches of the
Ho has successfully s'ormed tho cit-
adel of the republicans In New Eng-
liind. lie hits made a very decided
Impression according to the reports
One fact he emphasized without
fear of contradiction and if any sec-
tion of the country Is in a position to
appreciate it It is New England.
Democratic administrative meas-
ures and the tact and discretion of
Woodrow Wilson have made It pos-
sible In this period of crisis to open
the closed mills of New England.
Not only have the mills been opened
but they . are being operated night
nnd day with double and triple shifts
being employed. President Wilson
has made it possible for a tidal wave
of gold to sweep gently ever the east-
i rn states.
The fact that the republican na-
tional committee saw lit to send
Charlns Evans Hughes to the distant
western stales while the democrats
have been satisfied to open the cam-
paign In the east is a tacit acknow-
ledgment that if gains are expected
by Hughes he must look for them in
the wist and not in the east.
We do not pretend to say 'bat
Curtis in Maine will be elected but it
must be remembered that Maine is
the very keystone and foundation cf
republicanism. That ih" d "inoer.its
hope to break the strength of the
state and secure the national elect i-
ral vote just as Wilson did four years
ago is a foregone conclusion.
A republican powrnor may he elect-
ed. This is a matter of doubt. At
the same time admitting the election
of a republican so long as the demo-
crats of Maine can retain and hold
the democratic strength it will be a
telling indication as to what will be
done in the cist.
The two points made by Champ
Clark are points that ran not he ci n--istently
answered. He frankly as'ss
what the n publican party has dune to
warrant the election of Charles Evans
Hughes and he asks also what the
democratic party h".s done to war-
rant the defeat of Woodrow Wilson.
lb- has pointed out the man's mag-
nificent achievements since he his
been the nation's chief executive he
tells of the vast amount of construct-
ive legislation he has made possible
and he sounds the keynote of the
campaign he declares that In the;
midst of plenty and prosperity thej
American in oplo should not clamor i
for a change Commercial Appeal.

Dear Mr. Bridgman:-
I acknowledge receipt of draft for $3000.00 payment in
full for fire loss sustained by me to my new dwelling house which burned on
the nineteenth instant and insured under policy 5069 of the Insurance
Company of the State of Pennsylvania.
The adjuster for your company called on me the third
day after the fire occured and his treatment of me was both fair and court-
eous. The loss was settled and paid with such promptness and your service
in the matter was so entirely satisfactory that I desire to express my sin-
cere appreciation of same and to assure you that it will be my pleasure to
recommend you and the above mentioned company to my friends.

film novel Is from the pen of Mr. and
Mrs. Rupert Hughes who are famous
for such tales as "What Will People
Say?" "Clipped Wings" and "The
Thirteenth Commandment" and is
said to be absolutely logical through-
out and of real literary merit not

Manager Harry Lowenstcin of the
Palace theatre is ready to personally
guarantee the quality of 'China's Ro-

chapters of the story and was amazed
to find how much above the ordinary
run of films it is. All the pretty little
mannerisms of Miss Hurko that made
her so attractive on the speaking
stage is retained by the camera nnd
many are of the opinion that Pillie
will score an even greater triumph
in films than she did before she de-
cided to sign a contract calling for

laxative is outdoor exercise. Drink a

of fruit and vegetables also establish
a regular habit and be sure that your

a medicine is needed take Chamber-
