Situation in Hunan
Causes Worry in Pekin
I'KKIMi, Sept. 8.- (liy (lie Associ
ated I'lpss). A new situation which
is musing the Poking government con
siderable uneasiness has arisen out of
the invasion by Hunan troops of the
province of Huprh and, according to
some observers, promises to Btart a
general conflagration along the Yang
tsze. It appears that since the mutinies
In Wuchang and lchang last month,
General Chao Heng-tl, military gov
ernor or Hunan, had been urged by
prominent politicians and militarists
from Hunch to dispatch troops to Hu
peh to drive out General Wang Chan
Mian, high inspeclor-eommiSKioner of
Hunan and Hupeh. whose authority,
however, never was recognized in
Hunan. General Wang was one of
the three super-warlords who met re
cently in Tientsin and imposed their
will upon the Peking government,
bringing about a reorganization of the
General Wang is unpopular with the
people of Hupeh and, following the
success of the Cantonese over the
warlord of Kwangsi, General Iai Yung
ting, the Hupeh people have taken
courage to the extent of promising to
supply funds tind foodstuffs to the
Hunan army in the event of an In
vasion. This friendliness apparently
induced General Chao to attack, in
spite of an agreement between the
governors of the two provinces to
maintain the peace.
The Peking government is not con
vinced that there has been treachery
on the part or Chao, but attribute the
whole trouble to intrigues by Cliao's
underlings. The situation is serious
enough to cause concern to Chang
Tso-lin, the Mukden inspector-general,
who has sent "instructions" to Gen
eral Wu Pei-fu to move troops into
Hupeh to reinforce General Wang
Chan-yuen. Marshal Chang Tso-lin
also promises to send some troops to
the rescue, and it is feared that if
Wang Chang-yuen were allowed to
fall, practically all the Yangtsze prov
inces would line up with the southern
provinces against Peking.
An element of Uncertainty is in
jected by reason of the friendship be
tween Wu Pei-fu and Chao-Heng-tl,

Three Obstacles Are
Faced by Coalition
NEW YORK. Aug. 29- (Associated
Press Mail) Three hurdles are in
the pathway or the Republican-Coalition
organization in the race Tor the
New York City mayoralty nomination
on September 13 Major F. II. La
Guardia, President of the Hoard of
Aldermen, former State Senator W.
M. Iiennett of Brooklyn and Judge
Heuben L. Haskell of Brooklyn.
The Republicans and Coalitionists,
recently unanimously agreed upon
Major Henry H. Curran, President of
the Borough of Manhattan, as their
candidate, are confident he will sur
mount each barrier and thfft when the
race is over there will be complete
harmony in the quadrennial attempt
to twist the tail of the Tamilian
Linked with Curran, are State Sen
ator Charles C. Lockwood or Brook
lyn, candidate tor Comptroller and
Vincent Gilroy, candidate for the
Presidency of the Board of Aldermen.
Lockwood was a strong contender for
the designation for mayor, but with
drew in favor of Curran at the
eleventh hour. Gilroy's uncle was a
Tammany mayor of New York.
Major La Guard in, a former repre
sentative in Congress, who served
with the Italian air forces in the great
war, a "regular" Republican, has kick
ed over the traces and announced his
opposition to the state government in
terfering with city affairs. Former
Senator Bennett was the man who up
set Republican-Fusion plans four
years ago, when he won an unexpect
ed victory over the late Mayor John
Purroy Mitchel in the primaries.
Judge Haskell was elected to the
Kings County bench on a "wet" plat
form in a spectacular campaign two
KfTorts were recently made by Maj
or La Guardia to fuse himself, Ben
nett and Haskell into one ticket, but
the effort failed, when Bennett filed
a complete ticket. All three express
confidence they will obtain the nomi
nation. Tammany Hall has named Mayor
John F. F. Hylan as a candidate to
succeed himself and no opposition has
appeared. The Republican-Coalition
forces have directed some of their
fire on Charles F. Murphy, the Tam
many head, and scored him for his
method or selecting a ticket.
"The time has arrived", said Gilory,
the Republican-Coalition candidate for
President or the Board or Aldermen,
In a recent address, "to throttle Mur

of an arrogant boss who can reach in

Some dissatisfaction appeared in
Tammany Hall when Murphy announc
ed his designations on the ticket. Ef
rorts have been made to organize an
anti-Tammany ticket to give a place
to minor officials who were left off
Murphy's slate for various reaosns.
The investigation of the legislative
committee, headed by Senator Schuy
ler M. Meyer, into Mayor Hylnn's ad
ministration, coming in the heat of
the pre-primary campaign, has arous
ed intense interest. The Mayor, who
appeared as the first witness at open
hearings, gave what the committee
called evasive answers when question
ed on the city's finances. The com
mittee sought generally to prove that
