HUGHES NOW PLANS
. TO GAIN FARMERS
! VOTE IN NORTHWEST
Candidate's Visit to North Da
kota Indicates Purpose to
FARGO'S HEARTY GREETING
Striking Points in Speech
of Hughes at St. Paul
"TREASONABLE, adequate prc-
Xvparcdncss is n primary na
tional duty, and if I am elected I
propose to see as far as in me lies
that that duty is discharged to the
credit of the American people."
"Any American soldier killed in
Mexico is killed by American bul
lets." "A punitivo expedition they call
it. The only punishment we in
flicted was on ourselves. We pun
ished nobody else."
"We are a spirited people. We aro
a pcoplo who can protect themselves.
Wc are not too proud to fight."
"I am a strong party man, but I
believe in narty organization as the
'servant of a democratic pcoplo."
By PERRY ARNOLD
FARGO, N. D., Auk. 10. Charles Evans
Hushes, from the effete. East, Is out to
capture the farmor vote. The Republican
nomlneo got his first cltmpso ot hickory
shirts and the "gallus" as a presidential
Fargo gave him a royal welcome.
Farmers from everywhere about camo In
their automobiles to hear tho former Justice
of the Supremo Court expound his doctrlno
Particular Interest centered In Hughes's
appearance In North Dakota today because,
of the suspicion of politicians that tho
0. 0.P. candidate Is sotting out deliberately
ttf kidnap North Dakota's famous Farmers'
Up In tho Northwest this farmers' al-
llanco represents n new thing In politics.
According to ex-Ueprosentatlve Manahan,
i, who. stumped North Dakota recently to? tho
1 league. Just before It carried the nomina-
, tlon of virtually nil Its candidates In both
' ' old parties at tho primaries, tho lenguo will
again be successful In the fall elections so
far as the State ticket Is concerned and will
eject professionals from control. Then,
according to Manahan, they Will enact laws
for State-owned elevators, revision of the
tax laws, mutual Insurance ngalnst hall
and other Progressive plans.
Sponsors for Hughes aro hoping that the
jiepuintcan , canuiuato will carry such a
convincing message to farmers In North
Dakota today and tomorrow, that bolng al
ready well organized, they will swing that
atrength to tho G. O. P.
With such a swing they count on further
farm strength from other States.
Hughes has a busy program today and
tomorrow. Only two set speeches were
scheduled for today at Fargo and Grand
Forks but It was expected that the can
didate would find opportunity for several
rear-platform talks. Tho Governor's voice
was Improved today and there, was less
hoarseness, although he plainly showed the
strain qf his campaigning. Despite the hot
weather the candidate still stuck manfully
to his 'tolled" shirt, stand-up 'wing collar
and white vest, but In all of his talks tho
shirt, collar and veat wilted away In short
Mrs. Hughes wore her "No. 2" hat a
almple narrow whtte-brlmmed affair. She
has worn No. 1 a dark one. quite plain
just once since leaving Drldgehampton, and
that was at Niagara Falls.
