HARMON INDORSED FOR THE PRESIDENCY Expected to Resign as Ohio Gov ernor to Accept Democratic Nomination in 1912. HARD JOLT FOR BRYANISM Miio State Convention Turns Down Senatorial Indorsement by Four to One Vote — Points of Platform. Dayton. Ohio. June 22. — The Democratic party of Ohio will go Into the state cam paign this fall with.Judson Harmon as its candidate for Governor and President. The Democratic State Convention, which completed its labors to-day, indorsed him in The 'strongest terms for the Presidency of the United State? after it had rerioml nated him for Governor." The nomination was made by acclama tion with a roar that astonished even The tired and heat stricken delegates them selves. Chairman Pomeren*» called for ■ rising vote and the delegates arose en masse F-rri yelled. A single cry of "no" from sroorig the spectators on the side Un^o led Psaseresje to suggest that "those opposed to the nomination stand on their fceadF.'* by-way of a negative vote. The belief held by many delegates that the Governor will resign shortly after the beatottfag of his new term in order to become a candidate before the next Dem ocratic, natSetial convention was voiced by ex-Governor James E. Campbell in in troducing SJtlec Poroerene. of Canton, the nominee for Lieutenant Governor. •'Here is the man." he said, "who will he Lieutenant Governor for six months and the Governor for a rear and six month's." Both of these nebulous promo tions. however, were accomplished against the earnest protests of their beneficiaries. Governor Harmon made a futile request of the resolutions committee that they omiT the. Presidential indorsement resolu tion, savins that he was making his pres ent fight on state issues and did not want national issues injected into the coming campaign He wan told that it could not be prevented. The Harmon Resolution. Following is th? resolution adopted by the convention indorflns Governor Harmon for the Presidency in 1912: We invite the attention of the nation to Judson Harmon and the work he is doing for Ohio. T>-o y«ars jienc^ ;t will have been co-nplct^d: then we can spare him for larger duties. He believes that guilt ii personal — is act'r.g on that belief at home, and would ict *:mn it ■'■ larger fields. A high sense of duty rfovides his only motives for offi cial acticn?, and his s^nse of justice alone compels judgment. Firmness and strength ir.irk hirr. t&» man to supplant vacillation and weakness. The nat'.on needs a real roars, and the Ohio Democracy presents and indorses for the. Presidency In 1312 Judson Harmon. .The proposition to indorse a candidate for United States Senator, which was sug gested by William J. Bryan, was defeated, receiving only :^4 out of the 1,093 votes in the convention. The Senatorial indorsement plan had been successively defeated in the State Central Committee, the Rules Com mittee and the Resolutions Committee. .So heated became the controversy over the Ser.atorisi matter that Newton D. Baker, at Cleveland, leader of the fight in favor of indorsing a candidate for Senator, was hooted off the stage. Baker flung de fiance to the convention, but his words were inaudlWe. S; :.-,The PJatform. The platform adopted was practically as forecasted T«s* night, except that an addi tional p!ank was added at the eleventh hour denouncing Secretary of the Interior Bal linger for ""dismissing from the public ser vice tried and true officers whose only aim «a the reservation to the people of their r«=s-ourc€?." . The platform declares for th€ elimina tion of graft in Ohio, a maximum ag-gre grate Tax rate of ten mills, regulation of all public utilities, ratification of the federal Income tax amendment, the direct election .cf United States Senators, a uniform school took law. the initiative and referendum, extension of the teaching of agriculture, limiting hours of labor for women and the placing of the names of »11 judicial candi dates- upon a separate ballot. In national affairs tt says: We favor the application of business rnethodß in the administration of" the fed eral government. We demand' the revision of the present unjust sr.<i oppreKsive tariff, reducing r<i;e. so a? to iower the prices imposed on the consumer?; the need of revenue for the economical conduct of the government must be the guiding principle instead of tne demands of favored interests. And the chief burden of tari?f taxation must be taken from articles of the cheaper grades, wherp it was placed by the law of Payne- Al<srich-Smoot and Cannon, which the 22 J r* i ?idcnt approves. We fa -."or the immediate enactment of the dollar-a-day pension bill introduced in tcth the BM and Slat Congresses. We believe in the conservation of our natural resources and we denounce the e-3m:mstraticn, and especially Secretary BaWnger. for dismissing from the. public tervice tried and true officers whose only aim v, the preservation to the people of tisch resources. Governor Harmon's Speech. Governor Harmon entered the hall after the vote on the Senatorial proposition. He was greeted by loud cheers, which were renewed ben he rose to Fpeak. He said, in part: The voters of the country have often been !mpc:-ed, on by tariff taxes levied ostensibly ior public revenue, but really for private profit. But they. were never, before fooled cy a promise of substantial reductions of ihe?<? taxes, broken in their faces as soon £> their votes were secured. A power so lr.Eolem Jn its control of the lawmaking jxiweis must t> overthrown without delay, and. will be It th«» American people have not lost their spirit. There can be no relief as long as the in- Tf-reEts which profit through tariff laws are allowed to" frame them, as thus far they have always done.

The platform adopted indorses the nation al .md stat» administrations, and declares that the tariff bi!! recently enacted is in ricrord with the Republican policy expressed in its last nntional platform. With refer ence to Mr. Taft it says: The Republicans of Pennsylvania heart ily indorse and commend the administration of President William H.

He has. in his own way. carried forward and developed the policies of William McKlnley and Theo dore Roosevelt, while enforcing his own an i those in favor of whicn the party has in national platform declared. With un wearying patience and gentleness of man ner, but with great firmness of pur pose and unyielding determination, he will, by the time the gavel falls at the close of the present session of Congress, have succeeded in securing the enactment Into law of more important recommendations than a .v other President has ever secured within so brief a time after his inaugura tion. Twenty years a^o the fame of John K. Tener was confined to the circle of base ball "fans."" The young' Irish "immigrant had become, a star pitcher in the National Leagn<".

Prom IS&S to ISS9 he was pitcher for the Plttsburg and Chicago teams. When, in IBS?, A. G.

As such he had com plete charge of its financial end, and when he returned to the United States his ac counts were audited and an overplus of seven cents wa* found. Then Tener decided he could manage a business of his own. He quit the game and went into real estate in CharWoiT, forty miles above Plttsburg. He bought and sol-? roal lands, built houses, and then started a bank, prospering all along the line. Mr. Tener was born in IS<B In County Tyrone. Trel&nd.

J. Black, who is endeavoring to wipe out the majority of fewer than two hundred vote? by which Congressman John Dalz^H was renominat ed by securing a recount in sixty-five dis tricts, made a new move to-day by filing a brief declaring that the court has no jurisdiction in the cape, and that if Judge Cohen makes the injunction against the commissioners permanent. Black will lose his constitutional rights. After the commissioners started to re count the votes in the sixty-five disputed boxes Dalzell's attorney obtained a tem porary injunction stopping them from pro ceeding with the recount. Arguments have been made, and it is now up to the court to dissolve the temporary injunction or make It permanent W. J.

THURSDAY, JUNE 23. 1010. FILIBUSTER ENDS IN ROUT Only Three Insurgents Against Postal Bank Bill. PASSES SENATE. 44 TO 25 La Follette, Cummins and Bris tow Vote with Democrats — • Chamberlain with Re publicans. [From The Tribune Bureau.] Washington, June 22.— filibuster ; of the insurgents in the Senate on the postal savings bank bill, broken yester day by the firmness of a President who insisted that a solemn platform pledge must be redeemed, turned into a com plete rout to-day. On the final vote the administration won an overwhelming victory- There were several desertions from the ranks of the insurgents, and one Democrat left his party and Joined the Republicans. All amendments to the bill were voted down, and shortly after 5 o'clock a rollcali was ordered on Senator Carter's motion to concur in the House amendments. This was adopted. 44 to 25. With the exception of Senator Chamberlain the Democrats voted, sol idly against the Carter motion, and with them were Senators Bristow, Cummins and La FollPtte. the three most radical members of the insurgent group. Sen ator Clapp refrained from voting, and Senator Dolliver was paired against the Carter motion. As soon as the vote was announced half a dozen Senators were on their feet demanding- recognition. Senator Bran degee was recognized, and moved that the Appalachian and White Mountain forest reserve bill be made the unfinished business. His motion was adopted, 48 to 16. Mr. Brandegee giving notice that he would call up the bill to-morrow and press for its speedy consideration. Sen ator Burton is strongly opposed to this bill, and may be successful in defeating action on it at this session. Publicity and Bond Issue Voted. The Senate then took up a report sub mitted by Senator Lodsre on the House bill authorizing the issuance of $2<V 000,000 bonds for the completion of ex isting reclamation projects. This 1s a measure of vital interest to the arid land states, and its passage has been strongly urged by the President. After a short debate the Senate agreed to the com mittee amendment striking out the* re quirement that army engineers shall ap prove reclamation projects. The bill was parsed without a rollcall, and Senators Lodge. Smoot and Bailey were appointed oonferree.? to adjust the difference be tween the Senate and House on the question of approval of projects by army engineers. It is expected that the House will yield and that the conference report will be agreed to to-morrow. The McCall bill requiring publicity of political contributions %vas then taken up on motion of Senator Burrows. Sen ator Bailey spoke briefly in opposition to the committee amendment striking out the part of the House bill requiring that the nam^s of persons contributing, the amount contributed and purpose of the expenditure be published the day of election as well as after the election. The action of the committee was sus tained, 37 to 30. The Democrats voted solidly in opposition to the amendment, as did nine Republicans— Senators Bev eridge. Borah. Bourne. Bristow, Clapp, Cummins, Flint. La Follette and Warner. Debate on Postal Bank Bill. The debate on the postal savings bank bill began at '2 o'clock and continued for three hours. Everybody knew the bill was slated for passage, and little atten tion was paid to speeches. Senator Bristow labored for an hour trying to point out weaknesses in the House bill, and was followed by Senator Simmons, who declaimed to an empty Senate on the shallowness of Republican campaign promises. Senator Hughes read various newspaper clippings regarding the atti tude of President Taft toward the bill, arid declared that Senators would not be kep* from doing their duty by threat? from th*> White House. The debate was closed by Senator Carter, who made an analysis of the House and Senate bills and replied to the criticisms of the Democrats and In surgents. . • Without a rollcall the Senate voted down Mr. Bristow's amendment that the board of trustees should not be author ized to select the nostoffices for deposi taries, but should be required to desig nate depositaries on the petition of 5 per cent of th<- patrons of a postofflce. A second amendment by Mr. Bristow providing that when a depositor trans ferred his open account into the so called postal bonds interest at the rat* of 3 instead of 2% per cent should be paid, was defeated, 40 to 25. All the Democrats voted for this amendment except Senator McEnery. Senators Clapp and Dolliver did not vote. Five .Republicans, Senators Borah. Beveridge, Bristow, Cummins and La Follette, sup ported the amendment. In the morning hour the Senate trans acted a large volume of important busi ness. The omnibus public buildings bill was passed, the conference report on the naval appropriation bill agreed to and the omnibus Indian claims bill passed, while the land withdrawal bill, the bill authorizing the retirement of Justice Moody and the bankruptcy hill were re ceived from the House, signed by the Vice-president and sent to the White House for Executive approval. W. C. BROWN ON CONSERVATION Discusses the Soil and High Prices Be fore Millers at St. Paul Minneapolis, June 22.— 1n a speech before the annual convention of the Millers' Na tional Federation here to-day W. C Brown, president of the New York Central Rail road, discussed "Th* High Cost of Liv ing, the Cause and Remedy." "Husband our coal as we will," said Mr. Brown, "there will come a day when the last ton will be mined. The. fertility of the soli, however, cannot only be maintained, ! but can be augmented, and It must be. if this or any other nation la to continue to exist. "The high price of foodstuffs and the blind outcry and protest which we have heard during the !aFt two years Is but the preliminary breath of the storm which will become a hurricane unless a remedy is found."

TAFT AND ROOSEVELT.— "No man in the country, not excepting President Taft himself, is more delighted with the success of the Taft administration than ex-Presi dent Roosevelt. Mr. Roosevelt's record has been an open book for all men to read, and in the light of that record no man can im pugn the character of his Republicanism or find the slightest ground for suspecting him of sympathizing with the insurgents— that is, the type of Insurgents of which Cum mins and La Follette and Dolliver are the leading examples. No man knows better the difficulties of the situation with which President Taft has had to deal, and, there fore, no man better understands the full measure of the triumph which has crowned Mr. Taffs efforts." This statement, made by one who is a close friend of both states- j men and has had an opportunity to talk long and intimately with the ex-President since his return from abroad, Is merely a concrete expression of the news which has j reached Washington from several sources, and it is borne out by the extremely friend ly communications which have passed he tween President Taft and his predecessor, but regarding which nothing further may be said. That this is the attitude of. Mr. Roosevelt toward Mr. Taft and his admin istration will not prove the occasion of any surprise to those who have really known the former President, although it may be to many who have merely assumed that they knew him, or have been misled by those who have enjoyed every opportunity j of knowing him. but have not profited j thereby. Even the promoters of the "re turn from Elba", movement realized the necessity of a hasty and premature launch ing of their misguided scheme in order that it might not receive its quietus before it was really launched, as it unquestionably would have done had Mr. Roosevelt been on the ground, and now that he has re turned it requires no political prescience to foresee that it is destined never to amount to more than "a schoolboy's dream, the wonder of an hour." DBLTCHT IN LEADERSHIP. - The pleasure experienced at thA White House and by th° President's closest friends is quite equalled at the Capitol, where it is felt that the party ha? a real leader, and that under the leadership of President Taft victory at the fall elections is assured. In what may be termed the transition period. wh<=n the party was getting used to the change from the leadership of President Roosevelt, to that of President Taft, there have been times when some, at least, have felt they lacked a leader. The ge.nt!e meth ods of the occupant of the White House seemed tame after the exciting days of the recent past, and there unquestionably was some misgiving as to the effectiveness of the new order. But all that is changed. Time has demonstrated that the new lead ership ip 3P effective as was the old, that the only difference is one of method, that the highest and most progressive, ideals of the Republican party have as able and as pro gressive an exponent in the White House to-day as they ever had, and that all talk of the party's relapsing into the hands of the re-ictionarirs has been as baseless and as evanescent as the fulminations of an in surgent. That the country has been quick er to recognize the facts than Washington is amply demonstrated by the cordial in dorsements which the Taft administration Is receiving from the state conventions, notably Minnesota and Pennsylvania, the one as progressive as the other is con servative. The present. House will appeal for re-election on a record never before equalled for lpgislative achievement, and with a confidence born of a knowledge of work well done. In a word, the future never looked blighter to all except the Democrats and a few irreconcilable- In surgents. . DOLLIVER'S SAD PLIGHT-There is on© man in the Senate who enjoys the sincere sympathy of most of his colleagues. That !s Senator Dolliver Only a few years ago the heir apparent to the leadership of the regular Republicans of his state, he led and won the campaign for the re election to the Senate of lowa's "grand old man," thereby winning the unqualified loyalty of every friend of S»nator Allison. Then came- thr death of Mr. Allison, and fearing that the Cummins forces would be In a majority. Mr. Dolliver hastened to align himself with Mr. Cummins and be come a "me too'" Senator, only to find' himself to-day n lieutenant in a losing cause, whereas he might have b<=>en first CONFERREES IN DEADLOCK Cannot Agree on Exemption of Labor Unions. rFrnm The Tribune Bureau } Washington. June 22.— A long discussion between the senate and House conferred on the sundry civil bill this afternoon failed to bring about an agreement on Repre s-r.tftive Hughes's amendment, which is intended to exempt labor organizations from prosecutions by the Department of Justice tinoVr the Shprman anti-trust law. Tli* House insisted on this amendment yes terday and instructed its conferrees to ad hern tc it It Is understood that the Sen ate conferrees, headed by Senator Hale, are ri>termined that it shall not h.* written in the law. The House cnnf<=rre<=s are not particularly in favor of ir. but they are bound by the action of the lower body to support it It Is probable that another ef fort to pass the conference report through tne House without the ajnendment will be mad* to-morrow, and if this fails it is prob able that the Sena re will be asked to yield op the ground that to refuse to do so will Indefinitely protract the session. The entire afternoon was devoted by the Hous" to consideration of Representative Currier's bill making the government liable to soli \< lien it infringe? on patent rights ot takes over patents without properly re munerating a patentee There was little opposition to tbe bill, but as it was cal endar Wednesday and no general business j could be transacted the . House simply j marked time Opponents of the Currier bill contended thai it was a discrimination against other claimants whose rights have to be passed on by Congress. Mr. Goldfogle, . of New York, declared the bill opened the door wid« to raids on the Treasury, and Mr. Sul zer, of New York, announced that unless the claims committee reported the bill for the relief of the survivors of the Slocum disaster he would oppose every claim out of (hat committee The bill was passed. Si to St. after being amended to exempt gov ernment employes or their assigns from its benefits and exempting from its operation Inventions accruing during the inventor's government service. To-day was enlivened by the presence in the corridors of a delegation of labor lead er?, who lobbied for the passage of the Stanley resolution providing for an in vestigation of the Steel Trust. The- dele gation, headed by Arthur Holder, secretary to Samuel Gompers. saw each member of the Committed on Rules and demanded that a special rule, be reported railing for the consideration of the resolution. The Demo cratic members' of the committee announced that they were enthusiastically in favor of it. as did Representative Lawrence, of Massachusetts, one of the Republicans. Tho majority members of the. committee Were non-commital. with the exception of Representative Dalzell, of Pennsylvania, who frankly announced that he had no intention of calling a meeting of the com mittee to consider the resolution at this time In the session. The labor men then endeavored to secure enough votes on the floor to bring the resolution up under sus pension of the. rule. . .but progress was bo plow that they appear to have given up hope. A test of the new rule providing for mo- I on the winning: side had not hi? courage i failed him at the crucial moment. A brilliant orator, the possessor of great per sonal magnetism, the debtor of President Taft for the proffered nomination for the Vice-Presidency, although he did not ac cept it. the senior Senator from lowa finds himself to-day with his back against the wall, fighting a battle of life and death under a leader who he knows would sacri fice him in an instant to gain the slightest : advantage, and compelled to attempt th« I destruction of an administration with which he is in far greater sympathy than the cause in which he has enlisted. A ma jority of his colleagues regard him with the deepest pity. A GENTLE COURTESY— the many callers at the White House to-day I was a distinguished looking man, who brought a letter of introduction from Car dinal Gibbons, which explained that the bearer was the Catholic Bishop of Lisbon. I Portugal. He came while the Cabinet was In session and Secretary Norton asked, him to return when the meeting had ended, which he did. After presenting the churchman to the- President Secretary Nor ton gave him a. letter to a friend at the Capitol asking that every courtesy be ex tended to the venerable clergyman, that he be shown to the "White. House seats in the reserved galleries, etc.. and then, as Bishop Sylva was about to depart. Mr. Norton, who had accompanied him to the door, noticed that he was* without a con | veyance. With an appropriate remark con- i I cerr.ing the hot weather. Mr. Norton begged the Bl3hop to accept his carriage and ordered his coachman to drive the clergyman to the Capitol. It was a little thing, merely an act of courtesy to an elderly clergyman, but it is of such things that diplomacy is made, and who can say how faxreachlng the- effect may be? MR METER'S TRlUMPH.— Testerday both houses of Congress agreed to the* naval appropriation bill, containing a pro vision which will enable Secretary Meyer to carry to completion his already suc cessful reorganization of the navy. The general deficiency bill carries an " appro priation which in effect will enable the Secretary to establish a property fund in the department, which constitutes a long i stride in the direction of administering the department as an entity and not as a col lection of bureaus. Finally, to-day, the Senate passed the postal savings bank bill, precisely as it passed the- House, which means that it requires only the signature of the President to become a law. It may not be generally realized -that Secretary Meyer is the real father of postal saving.? banks. He it was who first urged their creation when he was Postmaster General, and those who followed closely the pro ceedings of the last Republican national convention will recall that It was Secre tary Meyer's forceful telegram to Frank B. Kellogg that won the adoption of the postal savings plank in the national plat form. . Without that plank, even the earn est work of the President could not have secured the enactment of the legislation at this session, in view of the determined op position of the bankers. As a result of this diversified victory, Mr. Meyer is being most heartily congratulated on the work of Congress. A GOOD 81LT,.-The Mondell bill, which provides for appeals to the courts from the decisions of the Secretary of the Interior in all affecting the disposal of the public domain, has been approved by the Public Lands Committee with an amend ment which strikes out the provision which limited such appeals to questions of law, and will be reported, and, it is believed, passed to-morrow. Assistant Attorney General Lawler appeared before the com mittee to-day and strongly supported the, bill, which.- it is recognized, is needed to protect the Secretary of the Interior quits as much as the public lands. It is hoped that the Senate will also pass the measure, and that it may become a law at this ses sion; It has been said that this law is an outcome of the controversy over the Cun ningham claims, and to a limited extent that is true. But it is generally believed by the administration that, the responsi bility imposed on the Secretary of the In terior by making his decisions in land cases final is too heavy, and that he should en joy th.6 protection In mooted cases of an appeal to the courts, which would eirher confirm his decision or. if not found just. would reverse it before serious results could follow. G- G. H. tions to discharge any committee from further consideration of "any House bill or joint resolution" pending was instituted by Mr. Murdock. of Kansas, an insurgent leader. He moved to discharge the Rules Committee from further consideration of the concurrent resolution for the creation of a joint rule between the Senate and the House whereby the tariff <~an b^ revised schedule by schedule. The. rule recently adopted did not embrace "concurrent reso lutions,'' and Mr. Murdock purposed in this motion to obtain a ruling on the question of discharging a concurrent resolution. FOR CHILDREN'S BUREAU House Bill Provides for Investigators Into Juvenile Life. Washington. June 22.— A children's bu reau in the Department of Commerce and Labor ia provided in a bill reported to the House to-day. The duties of the proposed bureau 13 to inyestigate all questions affect ing childhood, such as birth rats, infant mortality, child labor, diseases, degeneracy ar.fl juvenile court records. The bill was reported by Representative CJsrnner, of Michigan, chairman of the House Committee on Expenditures in the TVi-'trtment of Commerce and Labor The propesed bureau would have a chief, ap pointed by the President, at a salary of $4,000 per annum, an assistant chief at $?.400, a secretary, statistical experts and othei employes. MIXED THE TWO CARPENTERS Fred W. Had No Connection with Friar Lands. . Washington. June 22— Friends in this r|t\- of Fred W Carpenter, former secre tary to the President and now Minister tr> Mororro, have he<en much annoyed by the mistake a number of newspapers through out tji* country hive made, owing to a slm ilaiitv of initials.
