June 22. Discussion i of the commission of f jurists today strengthened the theory that the existing Hague arbitration tribunal will not be abolished if a High court of nations is formed but on the contrary that the tribunal will not Only function As formerly but have a consider Able part in selecting the High court judges. The members of the commission took under consideration today the possibility of dovetailing the Root Phill Lemo plan with the plan pro posed by Baron Des champs for which a method was suggested by or. Root. Though the efforts of the jurists working on the draft plan of the court of nations Are entirely unaffected by politics the delegates have been subjected to the usual flood of letters from organizations seeking to Force National aspirations into the Lime lights. All the letters of course Are cast aside As the members Are firmly determined that their duty is merely to form a court. The first Hague tribunal arbitration since the War will take place in sep tember next with or. Root As chair Man of the arbiters.

Burleson boldly advises changes in volstead act struggle on floor of convention Between forces of presi Dent and Bryan on Many issues looms before leaders gathering at san Francisco league of nations Issue in the background san Francisco june 22 postmaster general Burleson t state ment today at san Antonio regarding democratic platform issues Drew particular attention among party leaders Here for the National convention because of it Frank declaration for modification of the volstead prohibition enforcement act. Or. Burleson s demand for repeal of drastic and absurd provisions of the act expressed in More direct fashion views which some of the party leaders had not Here previously had voiced privately. Coming from a member of president Wilson s Cabinet the state ment was regarded As a possible intimation of the administration s View on the prohibition Issue before convention time. Senator Glass of Virginia who is due Here tomorrow is understood to have been entrusted with a formal expression of president Wilson s views As to the platform. On other occasions however the postmaster general has been the direct spokesman of the president on important issues and democrats Here were inclined to take his expression As to the prohibition Plank As More than a statement of his own views. The preliminary convention discussion in Progress Here while wholly informal in character Lias shown a striking unanimity of opinion on two Points thus far. The first of these is that the platform struggle will be the real fight of the convention the second that the prohibition Plank will be the chief Issue in that fight out rivalling the league of nations declaration in interest among Dele Gates. On the league Issue w. J. Bryan already is standing directly opposed to president Wilson s views As to the party attitude. That dates Back to the Jackson Day dinner when or. Wilson urged that the democrats enter the Campaign on the Issue of ratification of the covenant without material reservation. The former Secretary of state stood just As strongly for acceptance of the Republican reservations As a basis for ratifications 4 in order to keep the covenant out of the Campaign. If or. Burleson s statement is to be accepted As presenting the presi dents views on prohibition it was said it s now evident that Bryan and the administration forces will clash Over that Plank in the party platform. Or. Bryan s views have been known to be rigidly against any weakness of the prohibition Laws. There is also it. Was said a third Point on which the presi Dent and his former Secretary of state might lock horns at the convention. It was recalled that when the president asked con Gress for authority to accept a mandate Over Armenia under the league of nations or. Bryan promptly issued a statement in. Flat opposition to such a pro Gram. It has been regarded As files suit to Stop payment for Road work Phoenix publisher alleges contract to pave Highway is invalid associated press lease i wire Phoenix. June 22. The Board of supervisors Here received notice today from f. C. Struckmeyer a local at Torney now in Chicago that he had filed in the Federal court there an in Junction petition to restrain the pay l Niento of any or the proceeds of the Maricopa county Road Bonds issued in the sum of $4,000,000 on a contract awarded by the Maricopa county High Way commission to Twohy Brothers for the part unsent or about 27s Miles of county roads. The Board was advised the plaintiff in the suit is j. O. Dunbar of Phoenix editor of a weekly publication and is directed against Graves. Blanchett. Thornburg and company the Pur chasers of the Bonds the Central Trust company of Chicago and the Board of supervisors of Maricopa county. It was alleged that for Var ious reasons the contract awarded to Twohy Brothers was invalid. Members of. The Highway commission stated they did not believe the preceding would seriously delay the Road paving program if at All. And that Twohy Brothers would continue assembling machinery and other equipment Ber in readiness to begin work. Possible that the president might seek to get the convention to endorse his course As to Armenia and if so it was said the Nebraska Leader could be expected to exert his influence against such action. Pending arrival of senator Glass. Or. Burleson and or. I Ryan. All of whom will reach the convention City during the week the few party Lead ers and delegates already on the ground have been exchanging Only gossipy comment and expression of personal opinion of issues to in up. There have been no Conff k. S As yet and there is Little. Workers for various i. Of e for the presidential nomination to distract attention from the platform Outlook.
