Number 87 Ada Oklahoma wednesday june 23, 1920. Five cents the cop boy scout drive on Frida y Siri i. By news writer thinks Mcadoo withdrawal is sincere Wilsons humiliated if nominated. By h. N. Rackey. San Francisco june 22.�?the self elimination of Mcadoo from the contest for the democratic presidential nomination has created a situation of uncertainty More marked if possible than existed at Chicago a week before the opening of the convention. There Are those who still consider Mcadoo a candidate and read into his statement counting himself out a political trick to bring about his nomination As one drafted for service against his own protest. I hav amp no quarrel with those who hold to this View but i think they Are mistaken. Rickey lunched with Mcadoo about two months ago i lunched with Mcadoo in new York and we spent about two hours discussing the political situation in All of its aspects particularly with reference to the democratic nomination. While i am not at Liberty to quote anything that Mcadoo said on that occasion i feel that it is no violation of Confidence to say that his statement declaring himself out of the contest for the nomination was no Surprise to me and that i have no doubt whatever that he Means exactly what he says. Being As he is a human being with big ambitions Mcadoo would of course Lik to be president of the u. S. But he is too old at the political game and has far too keen a sense of Public sentiment not to know that even if he could get the nomination the a Crown Prince Issue would be fatal. My a Doc a real reason. In my opinion the real determining reason for the Mcadoo withdrawal is that he has too High a regard for his father in Law to accept a candidacy which would inevitably drag them into the Campaign in a Way that would be More or less humiliating to All concerned. On the Assumption then that Mcadoo who was the leading candidate is no longer to be considered we have left ten or a dozen Active contenders and receptive gentleman Ach of whom believes or claims to believe that the Mcadoo withdrawal betters his chances. The Palmer managers Are quite sure that their hero will fall heir to the greater part of the Mcadoo strength because of palmers connection with the administration and the fact the he has made his Cam cessation of hostilities in Londonderry formation of weather i new Cabinet for by the associated press Londonderry june 22.

Editorial Bernstorff appealed to Berlin for More Money a to influence Congress As on former what those former occasions were and when they were is immaterial. How much Money he obtained on his last Call is unknown. How much Money had been used to influence Congress is not stated. But who got the Money that is the question that concerns americans. Who of the people s representatives were in the Kaiser s pay is a question that vitally concerns every Loyal american. While Congress has devoted an entire session to investigating those who won the War it has ignored the activities of those who tried to lose the War. It has ignored the blot that Bernstorff placed on its own reputation. Who is most Likely to have received German Money w Hose record lays him liable to suspicion Astl a Kaiser s paid servant who avoided suspicion by opposing everything the Kaiser wanted and by supporting everything the Kaiser did want who subjected himself to suspicion As the Kaiser s paid servant by supporting measures approved by the Kaiser and by opposing measures opposed by the Kaiser who of our congressmen probably received his measure of German a old who got the Money let the Congress of the people discover if it can and publish if it will the names of those who in the Day of peril sold their country for German in v the per ple demand the names of those who sold the people so that with a whip of scorpions they May drive them from Public life.

Of the associated Prest san Francisco june 23.�? rumblings of democratic discord Over the prohibition Issue becomes hourly More prominent today As delegates and party chiefs arrived in increasing numbers for the National convention. Hope that the gathering storm might spend itself behind the closed doors of the platform committee was virtually abandoned by the leaders and they prepared to face an outbreak of a tempestuous de Bate on the floor of the. Convention itself. T already Tho overshadowing Issue in pre convention conferences is the question of a platform declaration against 4he present a phone dry Law almost took the whole stage for itself today As the gathering delegation heard postmaster general Burleson a announcement for a modification of the volstead act. By Many accustomed to regard the postmaster general As a political spokesman for the White House the development was accepted As a warning of which Way the wind of administration influence would blow. Closely intertwined with the prohibition question is the problem of electing a nominee with views in Accord with the platform As finally agreed upon. The league of nations disagreement along with several other disputed platform issues has followed the question of candidates into temporary eclipse. A complicating feature of a convention floor fight would be the unit Rule under which Many state delegations Are instructed to vote As a body. It was suggested today however that there might be a general agreement to let each Delegate be counted according to his own conviction when the prohibition question came to its final showdown. William Jennings Bryan will be expected to Lead the a Bone Drys a although he is also expected to make a fight again soft the administration treaty Plank. The general belief of his friends he however is that he will Reserve his greatest Effort for the prohibition question. Such talk As there was today among arg ring candidates seemed to strengthen the prospects of the deadlock for several ballots.
