WASHI.VOTO.V. Dec. 6 The ar
rival hero today of Alva II. McDon
ald to aid In promoting, tho deal to
havo Mrs. Jako Hamon named as
the now republican national commit
teeman from Oklahoma was the first
development along that lino hero.
McDonald left Oklahoma tho day
before Hamon was shot nnd was In
New York when he died, ami stated
on his arrival heru that he was mere
ly on his way home.
Ho called on Senator-elect Ilarrold
and solicited his support for Mrs.
Hamon. Tho senator very emphat
ically declined to glvo It.
McDonald put In tho day trying
to arrange a meeting with Senator
Harding through Harry Daughorty
to Induce him if possible to Indicate
a dcslro to seo Mrs. Hainan selected.
At a late hour tonight tho result
of his efforts were, still In doubt,
but In view of the widespread public
ity given tho Hamon n(falr any state
ment or personal desires purporting
to eminato from tho piosldonl-olect
can be accepted with considerable
Tight on .llin Harris.
Telegrams received from Okla
homa Indicate that tho Hamon fol
lowing are directing their flro chiefly
against Jim Harris for committee
man rather than against Harreld
whoso selection cannot he placed on
tho grounds of him being a candi
date, but rather us tho compromlso
choice between nil factions, and
against which no logical argument
can bo brought except by thoso who
havo a purely selfish or factional
Interest to sorvo. For no matter
who Is commlttpr-mnn during tho
next nix years for Oklahoma, Har
reld's own position Is such that his
volco In tho really vital affairs will
Heal Campaign for Widow.
Thcro Is no longer any doubt, how
ever, that h campaign of formidable
proportions, backed by ample fund
from somo ourcc. Is under full
swing and that every string familiar
to seasoned political manipulators
Is being pulled to put Mrs. Hamon
over. 'Already at least two nnd
