H CHICAGO, June 5. (By the Asso
ciated Press.) The contest between
I tno varIous aspirants for the Republi-
yv?6 can presidential nomination- Is mo
1 1 mentarlly obscured by preliminary
contests over tho platform.
One is the league of nations plank
and the other is tho Industrial rela-
IWKf tions plank. The latter, is acknowl-
SiJiJ I edged to be loaded with dynamite and
WVM- tho former is so surrounded by counter
claims that it has been arranged, and
that it has not been arranged, that
1 the real truth of the situation is not
I apparent. .
Morft of all the practical politicians
' however, were predicting today thai
any coalition of party leaders which
presents the successful wolution for
the league of nations plank will bo
able to nominate their canidatc for
Indiana Points Way.
The league of nations plank In the'
Indiana state Republican platform
brought hero by Senator Watson, who
is tho foremost candidate for chair
man of the resolutions committee.)
scorns to be the nucleus around which j
the descuEsIon is centering and it may
provide tho basis for the agreement.
It declares in effect that the Rcpub
f lican party denounces tho league of
national covenant as It was brought
from Versailles by Pres. Wilson, but it j
iV docs not close the door of Its accept-,
stP anccs with reservations. j
' At ttiot nnlnt Ilia rraf r'a i 1 nn t?tft of r
It various degrees and the Irreconclla-
blcs appear as the elements to be
brought Into harmony. .Most Qf uie
party whips seem to be agreed that
the convention cannot take any action
which could be construed as a repu
diation of the Republican leaders In
the senate. Compromise seems to be
inevitable and tho. predictions of the
field marshals Is that the compromise
will develop the candidate.
To Much To Hay.
On tho side Hues of the big fight
thore is a scrimmage going on between
the leaders of the party in congress
and the leaders of the party through
, out the country- Many of the latter
have come to Chicago openly express-
ing the feeling that senators and rop-
l resentatives have had too much to say
( in the divisions of the party's affairs
c and that some consideration must be
I; given to thePhicftains from the pro
vinces. Tho statement by Gov. Beeck
rj man, of Rhode Island, that he was not
ii sure whether he was going to "a Re-
ul publican convention or a senatorial
l caucus," has ben construed as a notice
co from the governors and state leaders
"n that they will demand to be heard.
"Big Three" Confident-
tlol Judging by their degre of pre-
the convention activity. Wood. Lowden and
eon, Johnson might properly be designated
dai the "big three." On one proposition
tho their managers are fully agreed. They
day all claim victory. They differ on how
uoj it is to be achieved or on what bal-
ner lot it Is to be hut they assure all hi
ll quirers there is no doubt about It.
eoj Seventy-two hours bpfore Senator
I'alj L.odge's gavel drops In th big coliseum
Ifej a composite talking machine record of
f ( the expressions of the managers would
anl say: "We are perfectly satisfied with
M, the situation. The strength of our can-
lio' didatc la steadily Increasing."
rci The sentiment expressed ' on the
,rcl street, presumably reflecting the
vf(evs of the men up the tree are
1 jc as many and as varied an the number
"? of candidates. One hears with the.
mm greatest degree of finality "J-owden or
H a dark horso." and "Johnson after
, mmm! the tpird ballot," or "Wood after all
Wj the others have been eliminated."
