James M. Cox.
A throng of cheering deraoc
estimated variously at between

leadership in the presidential
lest, following formal notifies
by Senator Robinson of Arkai
chairman at the San Francisco

He was cheered loudly in comp

its peace record. The democr?

other issues he proclaimed.

he hammered tn, pounding his ta

More cheers approved the candi
date's pledge to aid ex-service men.
Several demonstrations marked
his declarations for consideration
for women including ratification of
tbe equal suffrage amendment.
Repeated thumps of his fist punc
tuated the governor's criticism of
Senator Harding's stand on "party
government" and the audience evi
denced its sympathy frequently.
Thh governor delivered only one
sentence of his statement on educa
tion, jumping to the subject of cam
paign contributions, and he declared
it would not be a dollar competition
with the republicans.
As he closed his address, the gov

Chicago, Aug. 7.-Senator Harry
S. New of Indiana, chairman of the
republican campaign speakers' com
mittee and member of the senate
foreign relations committee, in a
signed statement tonight declared
that Governor Cox in his speech of
acceptance today had "devoted three
columns to the league of nations,
but bad straddled the real league
"Governor Cox is in the position
of holding fast to President Wilson
with one hand and reaching for the
public -with the other," said the
statement. "He leaves entirely un
answered in his ?peech the main is
sue of the league-Article 10-and
no one knows bow he stands on it
except by interpreting his statement
made after the conference with
President Wilson as meaning that
he favors it. Governor Cox must
come out clearly in the campaign
and say whether he favors Article
IO, whether he favors sending
American troops abroad, for his
speech of acceptance is very unsat
isfactory on that point."
Chicago, Aug. 7.-Gov. Cox's
failure to take a definite stand con
cerning a possible repeal of the Vol
stead act and the eighteenth emend
ment is "looked upon with great dis
favor and disappointment by the
prohibition party," Virgil G. Hin
shaw, chairman of the party's na
tional committee, said todight. He
previously had characterized Hard

"Neither candidate has taken the
stand it was hoped he would take
namely, firm opposition to any
change'in the present laws affecting
prohibition," said Mr. Hinshaw.
3-Billion Bushel Corn Crop For
U. S. Predicted.
Washington, Aug. 9.-A three
billion bushel corn crop for the
third time in the history of the
country was forecast today by the
department of agriculture on the
basis of condition existing August
1. Inasmuch as August is the
critical month for the crop in the
great corn belt of the Middle West
it is uncertain whether the promise
of a crop almost equal to the enor
mous ones of 1912 and 1913 will
be fulfilled. Improvement was re
ported during July id the important
corn states with the exception of
Illinois and a result a crop fore
cast 224,000,000 bushels larger
than that predicted July 1 was
Spring wheat was adversely af
fected during July principally by
rust and the production forecast of
the crop was reduced 29,000,000
bushels from a month ago or to a
total of 282,000,000 bushels. The
preliminary estimate of winter
wheat production was 15,000.000
bushels larger tban forecast in
July, making the combined crop of
winter and spriDg wheat only 14,
000,000 bushels smaller than esti
mated a month ago. The total of
705,006.000 bushels was predicted
in to-day's report.
There was improvement in the
potato crop and indications are
that the crop will exceed 400,000,
000? bushels for the fourth time in
the country's history.
The tobacco crop, which has
bee,n promising from the start, has
shown additional improvement and
probabilities are that it will exceed
the record crop produced in 1918,
by about 200,060,000 pounds. To
tal production is forecast at 1,544,
Has Never Seen Their Equal.
"I have used Chamberlain's Tab
lets for stomach trouble, biliousness
and constipation off and on for the
past ten yeai*s. I have never seen
their equal yet. They have strength
ened my digestion, relieved me of
headaches and had a mild pleasant
action on my bowels. I take pleasure
in recommending them" writes H. D.
F. Parmenter, Cridersville, Ohio.
