WEDNESDAY, NOVEMBER _.,_1916.
Sght Editor-Harry M. Carey.
Charles Evans Hughes was elected
to the presidency of the United States
yesterday following one of the warm-
est and most hotly contested cam-
paigns of recent years. Feeling ran
high and personalities were allowed
to creep in.
The election closed last night, how-
ever, and with the decision of the na-
tion sending the Republican candidate
into the presidency, all loyal citizens
should feel it their duty to get behind
the new chief executive.
President Wilson has faced grave
problems during the past four years,
but issues of even more import-
ance to the nation are likely to spring
up out of the great conflict that is now
going on in Europe. President-elect
Hughes will need the hearty support
of every American no matter how his
ballot was marked yesterday. It is
time that the high feeling engendered
during the campaign be forgotten.
There is no doubt that Mr. Hughes
will make mistakes during his term of
office. Every one of his predecessors
In office have done so. But he deserv-
es the support of every citizen when
he takes office on the fourth of next
Mr. Hughes brings to the presidency
a nation-wide reputation as a lawyer,
governor, and supreme court justice.
He has promised the nation that he
will execute the duties of his office
faithfully, that he will not allow party
preferences to sway him from the
course that he believes the best for the
whole country. He has kept faith with
his fellow citizens in the past, and
deserves the faith of the whole nation
at the present time.
President-elect Hughes will face
Democratic legislation which was
pushed through the preceding Con-
gress, much of which has proved dis-
pleasing to the voters, according to
the verdict of the election. He will
first have to deal with these left-overs
of the Wilson administration before
turning to the definitely .Republican
Our best wishes are for Mr. Hughes,
and we known that the verdict handed
down to him at the bar of public
opinion will stimulate him to four
years of service to the American peo-

Copenhagen, Nov. 7.-(Special) The
last experts giving evidence before the
West Indies Isles sale commission
were two ex-governors, Nordlien and
Helweg Larsen. While Nordlien said
the advantage to be gained by the sale
would be only temporary, Larsen gave
an interesting view of the whole situ-
ation. He said that if the reforms
were to be of any use, a strong hand
would be necessary against the ne-
groes. He quoted Theodore Roosevelt
as having once said to him
"It is a great mistake to believe that
the negro is a white man with a black
Referring to the strike and the part
therein played by Hamilton Jackson,
Larsen said that after the governor
negotiated an agreement with the
strike leaders, the negroes did less
work and conditions became such that
the white managers scarcely dared to
appear in the fields, while the lives of
the whites were in danger.f
During all last year St. Croix was on
the edge of revolt, he said, only the
presence of a Danish cruiser and an
excellent gendarmerie keeping the sit-
uation in hand. A man furnished with
dictatorial authority, he said, must be
sent out to raise a voice against the
laborers, and also against the employ-
ers. Otherwise, he thought, it would
be better to give up all thought of re-
forms and part with the islands im-

ENGLISHMEN WHO HAVE SERVED
IN WAR MAN MERCHANT SHIPS
Report of American Seamans' Friend
Society Says All Have Honor-
New York, Nov. 7.-British mer-
chant ships entering and leaving the
port of New York are being manned
almost entirely by Englishmen who
have already served in war and have
been honorably discharged, according
to the ship-visiting report of the
American Seamens' Friend society at
76 Wall street.
This report, which was made pub-
lic today by Dr. George Sidney Web-
ster, secretary, shows that in four
months the ship-visiting staff of the
ociety was in personal touch with
practically 12,000 sailors attached to
81 different ships which represented
12 steamship lines.
According to Dr. Webster the im-
pression that has been gathered re-
garding military experiences of the
sailors is abased upon their frequent
recital of personal experiences on the-
battle front. It is said that a sailor
without such experience has been sel-
dom met in the rounds of ship-visiting
done by the society. The purpose of
this visiting is to provide social. phy-
sical or religious aid to the men be-
tween voyages, and this work is fur-
ther aided by the 'large sailors' home
maintained on West street adjacent to
the docks of the largest British steam-
Although a very large number of
the sailors in port are stated to be
English subjects, there are also a
great many from other lands. These
men, according to the report, are
largely either deserters from military
service or are avoiding service by
coming to this country. Many of these
men are Greeks who contract for re-
turn voyage to British ports and de-
sert their ship on this side without
pay. This, according to Dr. Webster,
is one reason for the noticeable short-
-age in the supply of seamen which
ships have suffered from when pre-
paring for the return trip.
