Rag Wilson asks rail wage be fixed by David Lawrence. Copyright. 1520. By tin Valitie j Portland Ore., june 23.�? Harding and Lenroot was to have been Republican ticket and combination might have prevailed at Chicago but for interference of Wailace Mccamant Delegate from Oregon who spoiled Tuci plans of old Gottard by nominating gov Coolidge at psychological moment when entire con vent on was weary of balloting and name of Massachusetts governor seemed to offer a popular candidacy for vice p red Dent. Shortly after nomination of senator Harding relates or. Me Camano who has just returned Here from Chicago convention a word was passed around that senator Lenny to of Wisconsin wag to be his running mate. In common with other members of Oregon delegation i not receive suggestion with enthusiasm for several reason. In first place or. I in Root had a prominent part some years ago in fight to depose John c. Spooney one of Strong eat and Best political figures Wisconsin Ever had in favor of Robert m. Lafollette. Further than that his War record was none too Good. I Felt that we must look for leaders from those whoa americanism rang True during great test. Together with other members of Oregon delegation we talked matter Over during few minutes that we had and judge Carey of Oregon suggested that i nominate gov Coolidge As Oregon s Choice. Quot during this time some one had nominated Lenroot and when i jumped on top of a chair with idea of nominating Massachusetts governor i think chairman thought i wanted to second Lenroot e nomination. At any rate he recognized me readily in spite of uproar Hall was to and Ujj i bad time to say was merely that citizens of Oregon had instructed Oregon delegation to nominate one of great citizens of Mas a Chusett senator Lodge for vice president but inasmuch As that statesman had ask eel that his name not be used we desired to place in nomination name of another or Massachusetts great leaders gov cooler age. When Massachusetts members heard name they went wild jumped on chairs and shouted name of Coolidge hit popular Choice. Quot from Many Points throughout that Hall came seconds to my nomination and when Roll was called it vow soon evidenced that i had touched a popular chord. The action was entirely spontaneous and ten minutes before i jumped to my sent nothing was further from my mind or from minds of other members of Oregon delegation. Quot while i had not met gov Cool Ido Personalty i obtained it great Deal of information about him and became convinced that he possessed qualification which is perhaps above ail else in this time Coal exports grow while 0.

The movement is so great that these three highest grades of american Domestic coals have Var to ally disappeared from Domestic Market and cannot be bought by americans at a Price within reason.

Americans Pitnor pay Export a or Mhz acid Fth democrats want progressive and Cox of Ohio May suit them to Dot Price or Don t get their orders filled j Cantar. Hardin by Gunason Gardner. N. E. A. Staff correspondent. San Francisco Tuno 23.�? reactionary record of republicans at Chicago has left political Road wide open. The democrats have a Chance to win with a progressive candidate and platform. Quot will they take it that is question. The Chance to win has Given a now aspect at once to everything he re at Golden Gate. When party was looking for a Goat Mitchell Palmer s candidacy found no opposition. Mcadoo was genuinely uninterested and convention took on much character of a sparing match Between or. Bryan for dry league and everybody else for wets. Now democratic managers have started a Reil honest to Good search for j. Progressive candidate. And have begun sawing out planks for a sure enough progressive platform. At opposite poles All of which accounts logically for a sudden and almost unexpected prominence of Cox Boom. What about James m. Cox of Ohio what indeed hero is Lay out As presented by this fresh Young Boom. 1. He can carry Ohio in elec ton Over Harding having demonstrated fact by being elected governor three times and winning last time in spite of election of republicans to every other state office. 2. Hiing. As republicans Pride themselves on reactionary record of Harding so democrats Pride thorns moves on progressive record of Cox. 3. As Harding is certain to alienate th.? labor vote Cox has always polled labor vote. 4. Both Ore doily newspaper editors both were poor newsboys both been in Congress both Are Neap per proprietors and both Ara amp verdure speakers. 5. Cox has mood for personal Lih Erv. Including free speech Froe As right of labor to or booze boys to fight for lives at convention Bryan and Cochran to match wit in great showdown on floor. San Francisco Jane 23. A rumblings of democratic discord Over prohibition Issue became hourly More ominous today a delegates and party chiefs arrived in increasing numbers for National convention. Hope that gathering storm might spend itself behind closed doors of platform committee virtually was abandoned by leaders and they prepared to face an outbreak of tempestuous debate on floor of convention itself. Postmaster general Burleson a announcement for a modification of volstead act was accepted by Many As a warning of which Way wind of administration influence would blow. No one Here assumed to know with certainty How far sentiments of in tire Antithesis to hard a president Wilson might be in a at Minea for demand for Coal at Tidewater is now unlimited. Exporters Are taking every ton they can get. No matter How scarce Coal is. No matter How scarce Coal cars Are. The exporter s order is filled first. These Export shipments ils they flow East have clogged railroads so that new England Mills have run up an s. O. S. Signal. They want some of this Coal diverted from Hampton roads Cail Ollier ports and hauled into new England. Senator Walsh of Massachusetts is met Cpl unrest namely unquestioned Ameri j a demanding embargo of some form pan it to on Coal Export. He Points to in testimony of or. Mccou suit a a a a a Al ,c�. A. Tui Campeti squares indeed with what was it it it served from press Box in Chicago and Reveny a for first Lime what wits behind movement for Coolidge. A someone who had Noral rated Lenroot Quot. Was senator medial or tiling la who wag further disturbed when Alexander Moore of Pittsburg jumped to his feet and a wonder nomination of Coolidge in behalf of Pennsylvania this caused Mccormick to Rush Over to Pennsylvania delegation to find out what was Thoj on lid by limiting Coal exports to 10 percent of her Tota production though in 1313-1914 England exported 34 out of every 100 tons of Coal from her mined. Exports double. England according to Walsh is keeping her Coal it Home then buying american annl and using it Jas a medium of Exchange for acquiring cuban sugar Argentine beef and raw materials from Mediterranean countries. Walsh a to complied figures show inf that about ,000.000 tons of intr rms of Republican party on . Cox has it Kuat Efein Orn.

Mitchell Palmer will show most votes on first Roll Catl. White his manners claim More than 500 he. Bus pledged about half that number. This Means nothing for reasons previously stated will ghost of Mcadoo stay Lake that s one thing that worries them Ell. No matter How emphatic Ive Mokes his repudiation there is a. Secret fear in hearts of All Ether managers that he is Only Holny Coy. But anyhow Cox pen Cord with those of or Burleson. After Many conferences in an Effort to Lay a basis for Harmony Homer s. Cummings National chairman said today it seemed to be a a fair bet Quot that question would be taken to convention floor for a settlement regardless of what decision was made to platform committee. Closely intertwined with prohibition question is problem of selecting a nominee in Accord with platform As finally agreed on and among Many of practice politicians there is a feeling that two decisions must be settled virtually at Ona Strpka. A. A a. Among most of Leaden it is agreed that whatever trouble develops Over treaty will be Only a drop in bucket compared to prohibition fight. Drle a confident leaders of Bone dry forces were confident today that they would command a Good majority in committee. Where each state has Only one member and could keep out of committee report any declaration for a change in present Law. With this View most of opposing managers privately agreed but they declared that when an Appeal wag taken to convention itself vote would Tell a much different Story. The Large states it was pointed out while having Only one vote apiece in committee will have a much greater voice in whole body of delegates who make up final court of appeals. And most of largest delegations Are counted on for support by advocates of a Beer Plank. A complicating feature of a convention floor fight would to under which Many estate Humboldt sends every druggist to i convention talk revised Law with Tine Hundred per cent attendance Humboldt la., came to fore today leading All other places in state in Point of attendance at Fortieth annual convention of Iowa. State pharmaceutical association now in session Here. There Are three druggists in Humboldt and All three Are Here. When president a. C. Phillip pounded his Gavel at opening of today s session at chamber of Commerce rooms number of visiting druggists showed a considerable increase. The principal address this morning was made by o. Fatten adviser Cor code re renew riots in one Man killed Catholic College is attacked attempt to assassinate an inspector. Unit Rule. Trouble. He asked gov. Sproul. Who a were shipped out of United porn i a Vav i us i a i a. P5� Are now going after nor i. ,. The Mcadoo Driega ions axe instructed to vote was chairman of delegation what it All meant since senator Penrose was understood to have agreed o nomination of Len Root. But seconding had Alre Triy been done and or. Moore s prestige in a pen Syku Anta delegation was such that his colleagues stood Buck of him for evidently word about j would to exported. Lenroot had not let on passed to tie it americans who want this Coal Pennsylvania delegation 5�on Lut can t bid against Export enough one arson taken was Price Point Cut that of Coal states during april. His information from Coal men la that by Midsummer Export shipment May to a it High of 4,000,000 tons a month. This would be at a yearly rat of 43.000.000 tons. In Ether words out of a very eleven tons of Coal mined in . United states Orre spontaneous. Sli Oruie gets More acute every ton quote i i?�lj�ii_l92r? a to in from Domestic Market. A a a a shipped abroad a an Iner Reasing greater Drain. And gov. Sprout Hud finished talking movement for was in full swing and could not be i topped so leaders accepted Coo Lidge after ail they had no objection to Massachusetts governor in first instance. Their idea in advancing Lenroot was to put a Western progressive on Tickel who would contribute strength from my Isis Oisin and states West of Mississippi. It Vag believe that two conservatives would not make n Strong ticket. On other hand now that it is All Over Many republicans fee that it might have been a mistake to put two United states senators on ticket As it might have Lent color to charge that a handful of men in states Senate controlled Republican National convention. Indeed in Many parts of West Coolidge is better known than hard i ing and some republicans say Frank by that convention a put cart before but in Oregon a ticket is popular enough to i carry state without much i trouble. That s Outlook in june a even before democrats have named their candidates. Canada is a big Factor in our Coal Export Market her mines Eup ply Only 41 per cent of her Coal needs and m 1320 she will probably buy about 22.030,0&0 tons of american Coal. Canada has thousands of american Coal cards. Which she is holding As hostages until american railroads locate and Send Home Founty no with both hands. Bryan to a candidate too. Tlynn of Chursr is going to have a lot to say. Incidentally hot has an trounced that he is opposed to Cox Bec Riiho Cox is wet. I it were not for this dry and wet Issue Cox would probably be. An almost unopposed candidate. And of course. Bryan is really a candidate himself All More so since Chicago named Harding. Speaking of progressives word has been received Here that Bainbridge Colby recently named by Wilson As Secretary of state is to come Here As a Delegate from District of Columbia though he is a citizen of new York state and that he is favored by administration As a candidate for permanent chairman of convention and is groomed As a dark Hor amp a candidate though he is a Bull Moose by his last political Aff Fli in Ion which simply goes to show How Oiher cars that belong in Canada a a people Are trying Kcf take Bur Havant to Ore pr0��r63s.

New president will be chosen on i coroners jury made Public late yes a abandoned Hope Quot however that they As a body it was suggested today however that there might be a general agreement to let each Delegate he counted according to has own convictions when prohibition Issue came to its final showdown. On that basis both sides were predicting Victory and Many of these in a position to know Wero declaring outcome would be close. Some of oldest leaders declared in fart that division might be close enough to make argument and oratory on convention floor deciding Factor. Bryan to Lead fight. William j. Bryan would he expected to Lead Bone Drys and he probably would find pitted against him strategists and orators of first rank. Vision committee appointed by last session of legislature to revise All pharmacy Laws of Iowa asked if be had a copy of his speech for publication. Or. Patton said Quot copy 3 Haven t even got original. I prepared my speech coming Over on in ter Urban this morning from Iowa to consolidate boards. He nevertheless delivered a rattling Good speech.
