8T6JH.WQ.- IlLtNQfS. SftTllROAY, NOV. 4,.1916, s ( "I* »4 . HUMANITY-AND YOUR VOTE I N this great crisis of our country I am more interested in measures than in men, I am not interested in parties at all. But measures can Only be put into force through the men in office. We must therefore make a choice of the man and men who will put the measures in force. In the first pl4ce"we should guard against Wall Street influences again securing the control of our Government. They have been rooted out during trie-last four years, and they are working hard to get back. The eight-hour day should be extended to all our industries where possible. Women should be given the rights which in justice belong to them. For years the argument has had some force with me that women should be discouraged from working in factories and stores, and hence, they have been discriminated against in wages, but I have slowly come to the-settled conviction that this practice has been unfair, because equal work deserves equal pay. Hence, all women in our employment who do equal work shall receive equal pay. I regard war as the greatest curse of mankind—that it has done more to retard the progress of the race and its material well being than any other single cause. We want to see war abolished and we believe it can be done, and we must try to choose the man for the head of our Nation who will do the most for these ends. ^ ALTHOUGH NOMINALLY A REPUBLICAN ALL MY LIFE, I AM FOR WILSON, AND URGE MY FELLOW CITI- 2ENS TO STA&D FOR HIM, BECAUSE OF HIS POSITION ON THESE AND OTHER GREAT QUESTIONS, BECAUSE HE HAS KEPT US OUT OF WAR AND HAS DONE MUCH TO BRING ABOUT THE REMARKABLE PROSPERITY WHICH WE ENJOY, AND BECAUSE WALL STREET IS AGAINST HIM. —He is entitled to bc^rcwarded -for his great- service to mankind, and the only way wo can reward him is by giving him the opportunity to be of still greater service, -__JJbe^rcjat^ ilogG_tfl_dA_mQro, that is why Mr. Wilson wanta to be reelected; in other words, to be paid for what he has done by the privilege of doing more. I have much admiration for Mr. Hughes personally, but he is surrounded, influenced and advised by nearly all the evil influences of selfishness and greed which I feel have retarded our progress for so long. I fear his election would restore the old crowd to power and put back'the cause of humanity for flfty years. ' • In my mind, the most undesirable citizen in the world is the man who will buxajvpJMt.inan'8 vote, and the next undesirable is the man who will sell his vote—because he not only injures himself and his family, but the community at large! * < • ' By HENRY I AM FOB M&. WILSON BECAUSE WITH A WORLD AT WAR HE HAS KEPT US OUT OF WAR. ALL OTHER GREAT NATIOHS ARE BEING CONSUMED AND DESTROYED BUT WE HAVE PEACE WITH HONOR, AND OUR BOYS ARE AT HOME. SPECIAL INTERESTS ARE DEMANDING .WAR AND THE PRESIDENT IS BEING CRITICIZED WITH MANY WORDS, BUT STRIPPED OP ALL UNNECESSARY WORDS THEIR REAL COMPLAINT IS THAT HE HAS NOT PLUNGED THE COUNTRY INTO WAR FOR THEIR PROFIT. v There has beeft much taJk of the attitude of the ao-cailed "hyphenates." .To my mind these are merely sentimental Americans, men and women, who, like myself, have a feeling of" love for the place of their birth. My observation has shown that among the best of Americans are these citizens. To nil these let me sny: I know from m»ny cortverwtion* with Mr. Wilson hi* abtolute neutrality among all the nation* at war, hi* intense devotion to peace, hit deep de«ir* to serve all the people* of all tho*e countries impartially. Any single act apparently againdt any one of the** countries, i» made only in pursuance of hi* duty a* President of the United State* and hi* duty to mankind. •- . . I know positively he bean no ill will to German? or to England, or France, or Austria, or arty of those countries at war, but he does understand and is opposing that invisible government, that unseen hand which caused this war. I believe those *ame selfish forces that caused the war are op* posing the President's re-election. I AM FOR WILSON because he caused fo be passed a large number of wise and humane laws, most of which had been promised by the politi- fl cian* of both partie* for many year* without fulfillment. No one class has been favored, no one disregarded, He hes served the United State* a* a whole. j, Among the*e law* ares : THE FEDERAL RESERVE LAW, which wrested from Wall Street ite monopoly of finance, released credit, forbade usury and dispelled the fear of money panics which hung over every business- It Has done away with the concentration of money in the Rands of a few men in Wall Street, and , distributed it among twelve Government controlled reserve banks throughout-the country. The passage of this law alone, from the viewpoint of the honest buiint§*m«n t should entitle Woodrow Wilson to re-election. THE EIGHT-HOUR LAWS—The eight-hour day issue ha* suddenly sprung Into great prominence. I say to you from experience and not from guess work that th* eightt hour day will help both employer* and employee*, We have had theeight-hour d«y-.in_£orc«Jn^J!eJ!ojtd_JaHC_tory ijfpjrjianrty_\hr9t year* and It ha* been' a complete stieees* from every point of view. 1__ I AM FOR WILSON'because lie favor* the, eight-hour day. The President ha* declared that he I* in favor of the eight-hour day in all kind* of business, except a very few in which it is impracticable, a* for' instance, farming. The President ha* been criticised for the passage of the Adamson eight-hour law, .which applies to' railroads, but that law averted the wholesale ruin which a universal railway strike would have brought. A strike had been ordered. It meant the- closing of factories, violence and th* enforced idleness of million* of persons and the loss of million* of dol* lar*. Neither tide to the struggle took into consideration th* on* hundred million people who would have to bear the burden. Every business man In the country was trembling With fear. The President acted a* th* representative of all the people and the *trik* wa* prevented and the principle of ah eight-hour day endorsed." Seventy-four Republican Congressmen voted for the bill and no word of protest came from the Republican eandi- "Bale, altn^ulHnh"artjrarwas under consideration for sSvoriTTtfiys; Mr. Wilson showed great wisdom and courage in preventing thi* trike, which would have paralysed the nation. The Commission which ha* been appointed to study .the effect of thi* . law will, I hope, report that with increased efficiency the railroad* will not need higher rates. But in any eas* this act.on is, ! heheve .irtd hope, the first step towards the goveref-»nt ownership and operation of railroad*. THE RURAL CREDITb LAW, unri*r which the farmer it enabled to borrow long time loans on small payments, «t !»w rater; of inter?**; and it prornisB-s an annua! saving of $150,000,000 to farmers who were' fo'rmerly' the hop*lf>*t vietirrs* of loan sharks. These rural'credit bank* jiro now being established by the Commission in various parts of the country. THE CHILD LABOR LAW. which pri-ventt employment of young children in factories and steps the coining of dividends out o' !'i, fives of little children. There is no factory and no institution tha? ^*n possibly give any care equal to a mother's car*. > A WISE WORKMEN'S COMPENSATION LAW, providin 9 compensation to those injured while in the service of the government, which measure will lead to "safety first," THE LAW CREATING THE N O N - PARTISAN TARIFF COMMISSION, whicH will go into effect very soon, and which has taken the tariff out of politics and placed it in the hands of a commission of different parties, so that tariffs can be.altered as conditions change. THE GOOD ROADS LAW, which provide* $75,000.000 for improving highways throughout the United States under adequate safeguards, which will facilitate transportation. ,Thi» will help the country feed the city. . The farmer will be greatly benefited by not being compelled to wast# hi* energies on bud roads. Fruit* and vegetables today are rotting on the farm* from lack of good road*. ..... THE INCOME TAX LAW AND THE INHERITANCE TAX LAW, which readjust the burdens of taxation, compelling the wealthy to bear a fair share of the load which ha* hitherto rested alltoo heavily on the backs of the poor, ' THE AGRICULTURAL EXTENSION LAW, which' provide* an annual appropriation for the direct education of the farmer, in order that the farms of the land may be worked 4ith greater efficiency and upon a sound wnd scientific basis and produce larfl r crops for the benefit of all our people. THE ALASKAN RAILWAY LAW, which provided a railroad built and operated by the government, and which ha* opened up th* resources of that-great territory in the interest* of the PEOPLE, not for the benefit of th* few. ' THE FEDERAL TRADE COMMISSION LAW, which create* a nonpartisan Board to arbitrate commercial disputes, to prevent unfair competition and to stand a* a barri*r between the consumer and extortion. THE GRAIN ANTI-GAMBLING LAW, which provide* better grain storage facilitie*. and enable* th«~4armer to obtain certificat*a..on_which. loan* may be secured. He i* thus enabled to borrow on the product* of hi* labor—and i* not compelled to aell during unfavorable time*. THE 8AFETY-AT-8EA LAW, through the passage of which ship* now carry more life-saving equipment, and the general living conditions of sailor* at sea have been improved. THE COTTON FUTURES LAW, which .prevent* gambling in cotton in stock exchanges and establishes standards for cotton, I hope-the President will find some way to pass a law to prevont all epeculation in stock*. THE CLAYTON ANTI-TRUST LAW, which doe* away with interlocking directorate*, prevent* railway looting, and* th* abuse of the injunction, and declare* the great trut that a "Man 1 * labor i* not a commodity but a part of hi* life."" THE ABOVE RECORD OF PROGRESSIVE LEGISLATION in the interest of alt the peopl* .art'd not of the few, far excel* any ever before L known THOMAS AT EDI8OTr~8AY8~THAT PRESIDENT. WtLSON ANO~ HI8 COLLEAGUES IN CONGRESS, BOTH DEMOCRATS AND REPUBLICANS, HAVE ENACTED MORE LAWS FOR BENEFIT OF THE INDUSTRIOUS PEOPLE IN THE PAST THREE YEARS THAN THE REPUBLICAN PARTY HAS IN ALL THE TIME IT WAS IN POWER; and it is because of these law* and hi* leadership in th* interest of all the people that the President i* being fought by th* special interests, by every master of Wall Street, every monopolist, every munition maker, every man with a special interest to serve. No business man should oppose Wifson becaus* Wilson is th* greatest friend honest business ever had in the Whit* House. .GREAT PROSPERITY COVERS THE LAND AS NEVER; BEFORE, LEGITIMATE ENTERPRISE IS ASSURED A PROPER 'REWARD. THERE ARE NO BREAD LINES, AND EVERYBODY IS EMPLOYED, THAT WANTS TO BE. OUR PEOPLE ARE CONTENTED, PROS- .PERQU9 AND HAPPY. WHY 8HQULQ WE MAKE A CHANGE? In order to carry out his work President Wilson will n«ed the co-oper-- ation of a Congr*** thoroughly in accord with his own far-**efng policy. It is our plain duty a*-voters to send back to Congress the right men, irrespective of party, to assist the President in the great talk* that face f SOCIAL AFFAIRS *S | |irr«nlon won the audience • | j heKlmilUK.
