In years gono by, long before Charles

"Charlie" Hughes, over though of belne a
candidate for tho presidency of tho United
States, long before ho had any political
press agents nnd when he never said things
"to get tho votes," he made a speech to his
fathor which has stood the teat of years.
It was a speech which showed that "honesty
Is the best policy" and that, In splto of state

grandparents was the best.

Tha good minister could not understand
how his son could possibly reconcile him

struggling young attorney. "But, Charlie,
tell me, how can you consistently accept a
case when you know It Is not honorable,
when you know your client Is guilty?"
xnen it was mat tne present Republican

but the man, Charles Evans Hughes, told
of the Incident years ago. He told It to
Dr. John Gordon, dean emeritus of the

And this Is what the struggling young
lawyer said, with surprise In his eyes, and
even a note of sadness In his voice i "Why,
father, I am surprised that you would even
ask mo Buch a question. Never In all my
life have I accepted any case when I had
tho. least doubt that It, was honorable, and
I never will,"
"That was the spirit of the man," said
Doctor Oordon today. "He is absolutely
fearlessly lined up with the cause lie thinks

Doctor Gordon gave another Interesting
Incident in the boyhood of Charlie Hughes
today, when he told how the youth dlullked
to go to the public schools; not because
he was snobbish, but because he did not
feel that he waa making 'as much progress
as he could If he studied alone at home.
Doctor Gordon said In this connection;
'The young roan pleaded' with his father
iu m mrn siuay at nome and leave school.
Finally he succeeded, and the father agreed
to give him a chance to work out his own
problems. And he succeeded. He was
graduated from Brown, and he swept every
thing befdm him. He was a brilliant
student. At one time when his health
gave out he took a place on Cornell Uni
versity facnlty, and he made good, too.
"T remember that Charlie and hl h.
were always the best of friends and regu
lar chums." added Doctor Gordon, when
talking of the relationship of the. mlnUter
father and the lawyer-son, the father who
did not live to see the son nominated aa
presidential candidate by the Republican
parjy. and the son who had and still has
the courage of hi convictions. The attach
ment between tho father and son waa a,
truly beautiful thing to see.
