Democratic Senatorial Aspirant
Receiving Strongest Backing
Given By State Leaders In
Years—Both Smith And Lee
Wings Of Party Behind Him
The Democratic Senatorial fight ban
•titered Its last two days of active
fighting. with the lines drawn between
William Cabell llruce, David J. Lewis
and William I. Norris with unusual
Mr. Bruce perhaps, has the fliort
solid organization support Blnce the
days before lllalr laje fought Arthur
P. Gorman for the Gubernatorial nom
ination in 1911.
In this fight Mr. llruce Is supported
by virtually the whole of the Smith
State organization, headed by former
Putted States Senator John Waltei
Smith; by the la>e organization, head
ed by E Itrooke Lee, which is the pos
terity of the old “progressive" organi
zation built up by Mr la-e’n father
former U. 8 Senator lllalr Lee. and
by the united organization forces ir
Baltimore city.
In a general way, the opposition
to Mr. llruce is divided ulong geog
raphical lines. As the politicians see
the situation, the real opposition to
him in ilaltlmoro city is from Mr. Nor
ris; and the real opposition in the
counties is from Mr. Lewis. Mr. Nor
ris apparently has made little actual
ly organized effort in the counties,
und Mr. Lewis lias made virtually
none In Baltimore city.
Norris “Tilting At Windmills”
Mr. Norris Is favored by many ol
the extreme wets. He has declared
for repeal of the prohibition amend
ment and of the Volstead act. Hold
ing tli.it position, he has been givei
the Indorsement of the Association Op
posed to Prohibition and the benefit
of an Intensive campaign of propa
ganda carried on by the association
Thousands of circulars have been sent
out, It is said, and much personal mis
sionary work Is being done in his be
Against that work, organization
forces supporting Mr. llruce are mak
ing the argument that what Mr. Nor
ris proposes is futile, that ho is "tilt
ing ut windmills." Jt is impossible
they are arguing, to repeal the Pro
hibition amendment because favorabl*
action of 36 of the 48 States would b
necessary to do it.
The point is made that many more
than 12 States have had State prohi
bition so long and are so unnffectet’
by tiic light against prohibition that
there is not the barest chance tin
number standing out for the amend
meat could be held down to the doz
en necessary to accomplish its repeal
For the same reason, the llruce sup
porters are contending, absolute re
peal of the present enforcing machin
ery is impossible. The large numhci
of outright prohibition States hat
enough members 1n the House of Rep
resentatives to prevent a repeal meas
ure passing.
Bruce's Position “Practical**
Therefore, as the organliatioi
forces argue, the position of Mr. Bruci
in favor of light wines and beer is
the practical position, sirsa It can 1c
accomplished by modification of tin
existing enforcement laws and there
<tt ut chance of bringing members o
Congress from prohibition States to
agree to modification, where as there
is no chance of getting them to agree
to absolute repeal.
The Smith and Lee forces, handling
Mr. Bruce's tight in the counties, an
putting up no organized tight agains
Mr Lewis in Garrrett, Allegany am
Washington counties, and they realist
they can take no chances in Frederick
and Montgomery counties.
These five counties constitute Mr
Lewis' old Congressional district, .r
Republican stronghold in which ht
defeated the Republicans three times
consecutively.' In the first three ol
the counties the only chance agains
Mr. Lewis seems to be that Mr. Nor
ris might capture Allegany in a we'
upheaval. There is an organized wet
movement in that county. The Lewis
people say, however, no one can carr>
it against Mr. Lewis. It is his home
In the other counties. Mr. Lewis
has suffered materially because of c
widespread beliet aiocr.g !>einoerjti<
leaders he would not be a strong cau
didate in November. But for tha'
fact, it is believed, he would be abb
to give Mr. Bruce a much better or
ganized opposition As it is, he musT
depend upon a draft of the voters, in
the face of the general lining up o?
substantial leaders and workers foi
Mr. Bruce.
It will be possible for the countie?
t<f make the nomination. There will
be 133 votes in the State convention
The candidate who has 67 or mon
delegates instructed for him will be
nominated. There will be 105 dele
gates from the counties.
Jud Tunkins says telling a friend of
his shortcomings is more likely to kill
the friendship than to cure the faults.
America To Have New National
Amateur Golf “Champ” This Year
Elimination Yesterday Of Jesse Guilford, Last Year’s Title-
Holder, From The Big Tourney At Brookline, Mass.,
Leaves Two College Youths, And "Bobby” Jones
And "Chick” Evans In Semi-Finals

When the national amateur golf
championship tourney, now going on
at Brookline. Mass., comes to an end j
tomorrow afternoon, the coveted golf

beaten by little Rudy Knepper, of
Princeton University.

iuh never heretofore occupied the ex
alted position, us neither of the other
'hreo players has ever been u winner
In a similar event. "Bobby" Jones
was runner-up in 1919, and while lie
has at all times since been considered
i dangerous contender, he has never
succeeded in realizing the supreme
imbition of the amateur golfer.
27th Renewal I Of Tonrney
This year’s tournament is the twen
y-seventh renewal of what became a
lational golf fixture in 1895, but In all
he intervening time not such a
gathering of'international stars ever
eed off on opening day as started
several days ago. The entry of the
Iritish team, which came to America
irlmarily for the Walker Cup contest,
ent an international tinge to the
>vent that it never had before.
Like the National Open Champion
iliip the National Amateur was estab

/ogue In this country, but it was not
tntil the next year that the United

(Continued From Pose 1.)
The report from the Henry B.
dyers Co., was slightly more hopeful j
.s regards anthracite coal, which they ,
•aid might be expected in small quan- j
ities within a few weeks. This hope
vas held out in view of the re-open- j
ng of work in the mines within a
ew days. The Myers Co., however, j
ias no idea that there will be enough
lard coal available here this winter
o supply the needs of all those who !
vould normally use it. Instead they
ire suggesting to their customers who ,
•an in any way follow their sugges- j
ions, that soft coal be used in all I
urge steam plants, leaving the rather j
•mall supply of anthracite for the
•se of householders who must have
hat kind.
It is now much too late in the sea-1
;on for the miners to produce enough
•oal to provide bountifully for the
lecds of the country, even with the
>est operation of the mines from now
m through the winter.
It may be a month, was the opin
on of the People's Coal Company,
efore there will be any hard coal
o be had in Annapolis. This will
ake us into the cooler weather and
he need for coal will be general by
hat time. They have had no trouble
n obtaining soft coal, just as the j
>ther dealers, and they hold out bitu
uinous as the greatest hope for!'
varmth. In some slight measure, they
ay, briquettes may be depended upon
o furnish relief, but this product of
•oal screenings has come into such
'■emand during the hard coal shortage i
hat the ability of the dealers to ob
ain it is by no means certain. The !
■riquettes sold here are usually ob
ained from the Sunbury region of
,’ennsylvania. ] i
! championship has been played for 25
■ times, every year since 1895, exclud
| ing the war period of 1917-18, only 16
men have held the title.
Travers Won Four Times
Jerome D. Travers, New York, has
! accomplished the exteuordinary feat
j of winning the title four times, in two
pairs of successive years, 1907-08 and
1912-13 and, in addition to that he
was runner up to Ouimet when the
latter was victorious in 1914. Walter
J. Travis, another New Yorker, comes
nearest to equalling fhis record, he
won 1900, 1901 and 1903. Four play
ers have won the amateur champion
ship two times each, two of the men
I sweeping the field twice in succession
| —H. J. Whigham in 1896-97 and
Chandler Egan in 1904-05. Robert S
| Gardner won In 1905 but did not re
; oent until 1915 and Chick Evans, af
! ter winning in 1916, waited until 1920
before again taking the cup.
Few “Muiiuers-Fp” As Champs.
Twenty different men have been
runner-up In the quarter century of
I competition but that was as far as 15
of them got, for in all except three of
the 25 years the title has been won by
men who had not experienced the
thrill of "almost winning" and being
defeated in the final roiyid of match
; play. Only two runners-up after
wards became champions—E. M
; Byers, finalist in 1903, winning in
I 1906 and Chick Evans winning in 1916
and 1920 after tasting victory in 1912.
Three champions, however, became
runner-up after holding the title.
Travers being defeated in 1914 by the
i then youthful Ouimet, and Robert A
■ Gardner, champion in 1909 and 1915,
losing In 1916 to Evans and last year
, to Guilford. Ouimet was another vic
t tlm of Evans in 1920.
Five men went to the threshold five
tlnTcs only to be turned back—Findlay
S. Douglas in 1899-1900; Byers in
11902-03; Fred Herreshoff in 1904 and
i 1911; Anderson in 1913 and 1915 and
Gardner in 1916 and 1921.
I Tae complete list of these who have
won and the runners-up they defeat
ed, since the championship was held
under auspices of the association
■ follows:
No anthracito has been brought in
i since the last of May, according to
J. B. Lloyd, but the prospects for
shipment within a few weeks arc
New Fuel Ob Market
The Lloyd Company is supplying c
large dumber of Us customers witb
Trent amalgam, which is a manufac
; tured fuel made from powdered soft
coal and crude oil. This fuel will
be obtainable in almost unlimited
quantities, as also will be the sof
coal that is to be had from the other
, dealers.
A review’ of the opinions of these
dealers, wlm are in much more inti
; mate relation with the industry than
are the consumers of coal, makes il
j clear that an economical use of hard
coal will not only be necessary but
will be enforced during the coming
winter. Perhaps it would be well for
the city to take some observation les

PITTSBURGH. PA., Sept. 8 —There
will be enough anthracite coal to
meet the necessities of householder:*
if they will carefully conserve it, said
W. D. B. Ainey. chairman of the Penn
sylvania Fuel Commission, today.
“It must be borne in mind,” Mr.
Ainey said, “that it will take at least
a month before the anthracite mines
are up to their normal output and un
til that time the available supply
must be distributed In small allot
mentf and where there is the greatest
need for it.”
The committee on distribution, ap
pointed at yesterday's conference in
this city with Secretary Hoover, will
undertake its new duties at once.

morning in an effort* to confirm the
accusation made by Norman George
Bennett, a Baltimore boy and sailor
in the United States Navy, to the ef
fect that "Reds” killed Clare Stone.
8-year-old school girl, in Dungan
woods February 21 last.
Bennett, in his statement to the
naval officials at Hampton Roads, said
he had witnessed the murder by
"Reds." He said he and Tielsch had
conspired to kidnap the girl and take
her to the woods to be held for ran
som, but that Tielsch had attempted
to criminally assault the child, after
which he shot her.
Too much dependence is not being
placed by (> 4ie authorities In the
sailor’s tale, although the navy offi

sible and sane. His parents say that
Bennett is not responsible for what
he says. He has evidenced many
symptoms of insanity while at home,
they say, and was an inmate of Rose
wood Training School, near Owings
Mill, for a year.

Tielsch today. While he does not
answer as to measurements with the
description given by Bennett to the
police, he is known to the north

been employed at the Clifton Motion
