THE ACCEPTANCE SPEECH
AN EDITORIAL APPRAISAL
President Wilson's speech of accept
ance was comprehensive, frank and
It was the utterance of a man and a
political party, conscious of the hon
esty of past endeavors and confident
of ability to cope with whatever prob
lems the future might have in store.
No president has ever been called
upon to face more serious conditions
than has Mr. Wilson. He has met
them with patience and a devotion
that have won the respect and admira
tion of the world.
With domestic legislation to direct,
giving the relief from economic abuses,
that the country's welfare demanded,
'Avith a long list of promises to fulfill
the great war that burst upon the.

efforts and to involve the nation in

How he has brought the countrv
through it all, with honor and with
astounding prosperity, the acceptance
speech succinctly and modestly tells.
It is a story of triumph which every
American may read with pride in his
It is a story of achievement, of glory
far greater than comes to conquerors
on ensanguined fields of battle.
It is a story of moral and economic
triumphs that distances romance and
puts fiction to rout in actual . accom

try has been set aright, every class
protected in its liberties and its op
portunities, the whole commercial sys-.
tem set in order, with prosperity
abounding, and reason has never aban
doned its throne in all of the country's
The speech was a message to the peo
ple of all the world. It was a notice
to the world that this country is big
