The amazing fiction that Charles E.
Hughes has a progressive type of
mind is of a piece with the myth that
he made New York a "great governor."
During his terms as chief executive
of the Empire state, Mr. Hughes ve-
toed every law that sought to advance
the public welfare. His crushing dis-
approval of the two cent passenger
fare bill and the Coney Island five cent
fare bill killed a movement of infinite
promise. His veto of a measure giv-
ing equal pay for equal work saved
money for employers at the expense of
thousands of drudging women.
His veto of a teachers' pension bill
set back a decent reform, and his
message urging the legislature to re-
fuse to ratify the income tax amend-
ment put him on record as a pro-
tector of the rich, uo matter at what
As an associate justice of the su-
preme court, he sat in 1412 cases, dis-
senting in 29 only. He concurred in
the Standard Oil and Tobacco Trust
decisions, adding millions to the
wealth of the Dukes and the Rocke-
fellers, and also writing the word
"reasonable" into the law. Time and
again had Congress refused to furnish
predatory corporations with this loop-
He concurred in the Danbury hat-
ters' case, assessing the triple penalty
against a lot of aged workers. He
wrote the opinion in the Minnesota
rate cases, robbing state railroad com-
missions of power, and giving railroads
new and tremendous powers of extor-
tion. He concurred in the Weyer-
hauser land case and the Utah land
case, two infamous decisions against
The people and for the corporations.
Taft, the great reactionary, appoint-
ed Hughes to the supreme bench. Is
anyone fool enough to believe that
Taft did not know what he was get-
ting? Behind him today in his can-
didacy is every force of greed and
rapacity, every Tory and every re-
actionary. Is it sensible to believe
that they are buying a pig in a poke?

(Written for the Republican National
That organized labor will have to
face one of the most fiercely contests
in its history during the session of
Congress which meets in December is
the conviction of those labor men who
have been watching the course of the
railway managers since the passage of
the Adamson bill. The indications
point strongly to the acceptance by the
railroads of the principle that Con-
gress shall fix the wages of all rail-
way employes, as it has fixed those of{
the trainmen by the Adamson bill. But
having accepted that, the railroads wills
doubtless attempt to induce Congress
to go further and to fix the hours of
labor, to abolish the mileage system of
compensation and make it a straight
time basis, and to provide for what is
called compulsory labor; that is for a
law which will make it a misdemeanor
for the employes of railways conduct-
ing an interstate business to strike,
or to quit at all in a body, or at any
time without giving sixty or ninety
days notice.
Some of the railway heads point out
that President Wilson has committed
himself to the proposition that the
railways must be allowed to increase
freight rates sufficiently to compensate
them for the increased expense incur-
red as a result of the Adamson bill,
so that the railroads have little to lose
on that score. They contend that aft-
er the election is over, Mr. Wilson will
not be so anxious to cultivate the labor
vote and will take sides with the rail-
roads. If he has been re-elected he
will have nothing further to gain, and
if he has been defeated he will
have nothing further to lose; so they
are very hopeful of his active coopera-
tion in inducing Congress to give stat-
utory force to their views and ambi-
Before he entered politics, Mr. Wil-
son was a bitter foe of organized labor
and condemned the unions in the sev-
erest and most unjust terms and the
railway managers contend that his
real views were doubtless expressed
then, when he had nothing to gain in
a political way from meimbers of the
unions. They argue, therefore, thata
these real views will be in the ascend-
ency after the election and contend
that the iron will then be hot for them
to strike for what they have long want-

hours of drilling and two years of

Bull. The elderly rotund person with

English newspapers, who gave John

begun to withdraw the favor and pass
it along to the new Englishman.

Engineers Adopt Overcoats Full
Corduroy Pants~ Of Snap.

Chamois-colored corduroy trousers,
equipped with specially made slide-
rule pockets will soon make their ap-
pearance upon the campus, this por-
tion of the male costume having been
adopted by the senior engineers as a
distinguishing mark of their class.
More than 100 have been measured
today, and it is expected that the rest
will follow their example tomorrow,
so that within two weeks members of
the class of '17 will present a uni-
form appearance as regards the style
and quality of their nether garments.
It is said by those in charge that
the adoption of the senior insignia is
but the revival of an old custom that
flourished at Michigan a number of
years ago, but which was allowed to
fall into decline when co-education
became the rule at the institution. The
custom is in vogue in the engineering
colleges of Cornell, Dartmouth, Prince-
ton, Leland Stanford, and at the Uni-
versities of Wisconsin, California, and
many others.
It is highly probable that the junior
class of the engineering college will
ultimately adopt the corduroys, but of
a different color than that chosen by
the seniors. The innovation is said to
be due to the effort of the arch-men
to ban the radical attire worn by
members of the other departments and
to adopt a more conservative form of
garment more eminently suited to
their profession. It has been pro-
posed, but as yet not unanimously
agreed, to wear flannel shirts of a
uniform color and texture.
