WASHINGTON, July 17. ? Governor
jiuncs M.\ Cox, who will confer with
President Wilson to-morrow, paved the
way to-night for an understanding with
the President on the League of Nations
The Democratic nominee, who, his
Triends have asserted, favors strong
Americanizing reservations to the
league covenant, announced upon his
arrival in Washington that he was
standing upon the two reservations
which he outlined in a statement-last
May, and which were construed at the
time as being merely interpretative in
character. The reservation* follow:
"1. In giving Its assent to this
treaty the Senate has in mind the
faoj that the League of Nations which
it tmbodies was devised for the sole
purpose of maintaining peace and
comity amone: the nations of the
earth and preventing the recurrence
of such destructive conflicts as that
through which the world has just
passed. The cooperation of the United
States with the league and its con?
tinuance as a member thereof will
naturally depend upon the adherence
of the league to that fundamental
"2. Ir, will, of course, be under
?tood that in carrying ou% the pur?
ee: .? oi the league the government
of the United States must at-all times
act in strict harmony with the terms
and intent of the United States Con?
stitution, which cannot in any way
be altered by the treaty - making
In the newspaper article Governor '.
Cox said that the first of the suggested
reservations, he thought, would make !
it possible for the United States to I
withdraw from the league at any time I
the UniU i States believed the league
was becoming an "alliance." The sec?
ond reservation he proposed as a sub?
stitute for the Article X reservations
?roposed in the Senate.
Seen as Concession to Wilson
Administratior leaders were jubilant
over the cand .ate's announcement.
They regarded it as a concession made
by the nominee to President Wilson's
treaty position, that would enable the
l'emocratic standard bearer and the
President to reach an agreement on the
'cague issue at to-morrow's conference.
D;m:ftratic advocates of strong res?
ervations, however, construed the Cox
..nnouncement as an effort on the part
of the nominee to avert a break with
the Pre3ident on the treaty issue. Gov?
ernor Cox himself gave support to
their Contention by Baying that he ex
pected to talk with the President only
a short time, and that the conference
would be "a pleasant conversation."
The nominee discussed the League
of Nations and the treaty situation at
length late this afternoon with Senator
Hitchcock, of Nebraska, who led the
Administration fight for the treaty in
the Senate. Governor Cox said that a
conference with Senator Hitchcock had
' been suggested to him and he bad
agreed willingly, as he desired to be
iully informed as To the international
situation and the treaty fight.
Confers With Hitchcock
Before seeing Senator Hitchcock
Governor (ox conferred for half an
Hour with Senator Morris Sheppard, of
Texas, author of the prohibition amend?
ment. He said that Senator Sheppard
nad asked for the interview and that
ne was seeing the Senator "to discuss
issues with him."
Senator Hitchcock, after discussing
the treaty and the league with Gov?
ernor Cox, said that the Democratic
nominee's position on the latter was
There will be no disagreement bc
t^een Governor Cox and President
Wilson on the league issue, Senator
Hitchcock predicted. He said that the
Democratic candidate stood for the
same things the President has advo?
cated with regard to the league, only
in different words.
\ "Governor Cox's position on the
? cague i? splendid," said Senator Hitch?
cock. "I do not think that he will
have the slightest difference with the
President at their conference to-mor

in favor of the league that they cannot

day, visiting six houses, two of which
they robbed and at one of which they
were fired upon.
It was long before ?ock crow when
David L. Luke, president of the West |
Virginia Paper and Pulp Company, was
awakened by the sound of stealthy
footsteps in the upper hallway of his
home, on South Broadway. When he
flung open hia bedroom door, electric
torch in hand, his first thought was
that spooks were abroad.
A tall white figure, apparently head?
less, was revealed by the beam of his
torch. A chorus of screams came from
the room* >f Mr. Luke's daughters, who
also had been aroused and had caught
sight of the appnrition. Mrs. Luke, with
one glance into the hall, fled down the
"One more yell and 111 shoot the lot
of you!" warned the ghastly burglar,
and he motioned the young women to
enter their father's room.
Ac the gesture the sheet which draped
him from head to feet feil back, ex?
posing a revolver in his right hand. He
moved his other arm also, and re?
vealed a long knifo clutched in that
hand. His order was obeyed promptly.
As soon as he. had the four in one
room he removed the key and turned it
in the lock from the outside.
Faco Black as Coat
Freeing his face from the folds of
the sh^et, the burglar descended to the
kitchen, where he found Mrs. Luke re?
covering from u swoon of terror. Her
senses almost left her again at the
second glimpse of the intruder, for hia
face was black as coal, whether natur?
ally, from the use of charcoal or be?
cause he wore a mask, Mrs. Luke in
her terror failed to discern.
"Open that safe!" commanded the in?
truder, pointing toward the dining room
where there is a safe in which the
family jewels were kept.
Mrs. I-uke tottered to her feet and
knelt before the safe. In her fright
her fingers refused to close about the

the formula slipped her mind. She sank

no intention of pormitting Mrs. Luke
to faint again and he aroused her with
a nudge of his revolver muzzle.
"Open that safe," he said with deadly
earnestness, "or I'll shoot you as sure
as I'm standing here!"
Mrs. Luke Opens Safe
Mrs. Luke rallied her failing facul?
ties and managed to get the safe open
with fumbling fingers. Then she lost
consciousness. When she recovered
her senses the burglars had gone,
taking with them all her jewelry.
The burglars stopped at the home of
Colonel Robert Crowley, former presi?

Company, but finding every entrance
securely fastened, abandoned their at?

at the trio. They got into their auto?

VERSAILLES, July 17 (By The As?

Turks from Europe "once and for all"
was contained in the Allied jeply to
the Turkish objections to the peace
treaty delivered to the Turkish peaco
delegation here at 4 o'clock this after?
noon. Such action might follow Tur?
key's refusal to sign the treaty or her
failure to give it effect, the reply says.
The Turks wefo informed in the
reply that they must make known their
decision within ten days. If by mid?
night on July 27, they were told, they
had not signified their willingness to
sign the peace treaty "the Allied,
powers will take such action as they
may consider necessary In the circum?
The Allies made some minor modifi?
cations in the treaty after the Turks
had presented their protests, but it is
understood that these modifications do
not materially affect the original draft.
Threat to Eject Turks
The Allied reply is couched in the
bluntest language, and says:
"If the Turkish government refuses
to sign the peace?still'more, if it finde
itself unable to reestablish its author?
ity in Anatolia or give effect to -the
treaty?the Allies, in accoroancc with
the terms of the treaty, may be driven
to reconsider this arrangement by
ejecting the Turks from Europe, once
and for all.
"The Allies are clear that the time
has come when it is necessary to put
an end once and for nil. to the Empire
of the Turks over other nations."
The note refers to Turkish "atroci?
ties which startled and shocked the
conscience of mankind," and cites that
it is estimated that, since 1914 the
Turkish government has "massacred on
the mendacious pretext of alleged re?
volt 800,000 Armenians, including
women and children."
The Allies say they are "resolved
to emancipate all areas inhabited by
a non-Turkish majority from Turkish
rule." The Allies decline to make any
modification in the clauses of the
treaty which detach Thrace and
Smyrna from Turkish rule, since in
both areas the Turks are in the mi?
nority. The same considerations apply
to the frontiers between Syria and
Free Armenia Demanded
The Allies also decline to change the

Among the modifications of the
treaty is the withdrawal of the con?
dition by which Turkey was to cede to
the Allies all Turkish steamships of
1,800 tons gross and upward. The
amended clause says the Turks must

mission all German ships transferred
to the Turkish flag since April 1, 1914.

The reply says the Turkish govern?
ment would appear to think its respon?
sibility in war is less than that of its
allies, and that Turkey, therefore, is
entitled to lenient treatment, but the
Allies cannot accept that plea. The note
maintains "Turkey entered the war
without a shadow of excuse or provoca?

face of the Allies "Turkey certainly

Disorders Laid to
PresidentAdvised to Send

Fugitives Over Border
By George E,. Hyde
/Special Cable to The Tribune
Copyright, 1920, New York Tribune Inc.
MEXICO CITY, July 17.?The strike
of oil workers in Tampico has become
critical. The government fears that
the movement may become revolution?
ary. Thousands to-dny paraded the
streets with red flags, attempting to
force other workers to leave tasks and
making incendiai y speeches.
Several disorders occurred. One
lender was arrested. The mob then at?
tempted to kill the chief of police.
The situation is especially serious
because of the lack of troops in Tam?
pico. The only forces in that, region
are campaigning against the Larraga
rebels near Valles and patrolling the
railway lines in San Luis Potosi.
A special representative of Pro?
visional President de la Huerta, re?
cently returned after investigating the
strike conditions, told The Tribune cor?
respondent that the radical agitators
are mostly Americans, Spaniards and
Russians. Only a small percentage of
the laborers really desire a strike, ho
said, and the others are forced by
threats against their families. Much
sabotage has been committed. Several
threats have been made to destroy the
oil refineries and burn the wells. -
This representative recommended
that the President expel foreign agita?
tors to the United States, advising the
American authorities in advance, so
that slackers and other fugitives from I
justice .could be arrested on crossing
the international line. The managers
of the oil companies, r.fter a conference
yesterday, asked General Pelaez to fur?
nish protection for the oil companies
and to arrest foreign agitators.
Stay for Gonzalez
The judge of the district court at
Monterey has ordered a stay in pro?
ceedings against General Pahlo Gon?
zalez on the petition of Mrs. Gonzalez,
giving the military authorities seventy
two hours to show cause why a writ of
habeas corpus should not be granted.
General Eugenio Martinez, command- !
ing the 3d Division of the Northeast,:
probably will preside at the trial. Eight
'progadiers have been ordered from here
by the Department of War to compose
the court. Witnesses of the doeu- ?
ments in the possession of the Depart- i
ment of War leave little doubt that!
Gonzalez has been the coordinating head '?
of the movement of unrest in Northern :

War show that Federal cavalry is main- i
trfining contact with General Ireneo
Villareal, who is fleeing toward Guerro,

cavalry forces stand.
A detachment, believed to be the last
of Ozuna's men. came in to-day brin^-1
ing a request that they be allowed to
surrender, which will not be granted by j
General P. Elias Calles, Minister of
War. Larraga yesterday attacked Val?
ley in San Luis Potosi, being repu'sed.

pending negotiations. The Larraga re?

refused. ... i

Harding Sets Type on Speech
? To Get the Job Done in a Hurry
from a Staff Correspondrnt
MARION, Ohio, July 17.?A linotype
machine in the composing room of "The
Marion Daily Star" rattled and clicked
to-day in response to impulses from
the fingers of the owner and editor,
Warren G. Harding.
The Republican Presidential nominee,
in a hurry for a page proof of his com?
pleted speech of acceptance, went to his
newspaper plant this morning, took off
his coat and proceeded to correct sev?
eral galleys of type. He is a member
of the local typographical union.
The speech Is about 0,500 words in
length, although the Senator had hoped
to keep it within less than half that
space. The original draft was more
than 10,000 words, but the nominee sat
.up until 1 o'clock this morning editing
the manuscript, and finally succeeded
in shortening it by 3,500 words. He
said to-v.ay that he had dismissed about
twenty important subjects with a sin?
gle sentence. His ideas on these sub?
jects will be given later in more ex?
pansive form in front porch speeches.
Miss Alice Paul, president of the
National Woman's party, declared here
to-night that it was no longer the in?
tention of the snffragista to picket
Senator Harding's home and the front
porch, ?he explained that it is now
their purpose to ask the Republican
nominee to use his influence with the
Republican members of the Tennessee
Legislature to hold n caucus in ad?
vance of the special session, called for
August 9. One-fourth of each branch
of the Legislature is Republican. Miss
Paul said that if these members de?
clare for ratification, credit for the
thirty-sixth stnte, necessary to ratify,
will be divided between Republicans
This proposition will be made to
Senator Harding Thursday morning, as
he has set aside twenty minutes of the
day he is to be formally notified of his
nomination for an interview with the
After Thursday the Senator hopes to
be able to regulate his campaign so
that he can get to Columbus or Mans?
field, Ohio, at least once each week for
a round of golf. Mansfield is only a
few.miles away. '
The only ca'ller of importance to-day
was former Representative Charles
Fowler, of New Jersey, former chair?
man of the House Committee on Bank?
ing and Currency. He came to impress
on the nominee the importance of re?
storing to the dollar its former pur?
chasing value. Mr. Fowler holds that
the Federal reserve act is largely re?
sponsible for inflation.

Resolute took the lead in yester?

from that time forward. Instead of
receiving a handicap from sham?
rock, Reso-'ite looked as though she
could have given one. No cup-hunt-1

Calm Thought and Rustic Dream
Inspired by Race on Flat Ocean |
Heywood Broun Finds "Pride and Prejudice," With
Its Sense of Rest and Leisure and Contemplation,
a Perfect Book to While Away Time at Contest
By Heywood Broun
TJiis generation has been much too hasty in casting aside Jane Austen.
"Pride and Prejudice" was the first book which caught our eye yesterday
in the cabin of the United States destroyer Semmes, on which we spent a
week-end with the yachts. In college we liked it under professional com?
mand, but it really is a diverting novel in its leisurely way. "Pride and
Prejudice" helped mightily to enliven the long-drawn argument between
the Shamrock and the Resolute. In fact, it seems to us the perfect book
for cup races.
Thef? were others on the shelves of<(
the Semmes?"The Deerslayer," "Twen?
ty Thousand Leagues Under the Sea,"
and "The Three Musketeers"?but these
are not auite in the right spirit. They
lack the sense of re3t and leisure and
calm contemplation which becomes
those who go down to the sea to watch
challenger and defender slip along un?
der a hlue sky across a flat green ocean.
A golfer could have putted on it yes?
, From overhead there came the steady
hum and buzz of a flock of airplanes
and a big dirigible. It was easy to sit
and dream of retiring to a farm and
lying under a tree at the edge of the
pasture. There were moments yester?
day when we were even able to grasp a
conception of immortality. It wouldn't
be so bad if you were tired.
Easy to Tear Away "
"Pride and Prejudice" proved to be a
book which we could leave now and
then to watch the yachts. At firr.t they
were well bunched. The skipper of the
Shamrock could have tossed a biscuit,
a tea biscuit, ?ft course, to his rival on
the Resolute. It would, have been a
silly thing to do, because Charles
Francis A.dams, the American skipper,
breakfasted heartiiy. We only mean to
show that the boats wera close. Later
the Shamrock would have had to send
its biscuits by parcel post.
Sometimes the yachts stood up
straight as soldiers, and again we
would find them leaning a little ?more
than Pisa, perhaps, and less than the
Rlessed Damoze!. They were fine
things to look at, but they didn't seem
to change much, and after awhile we
would go back again to "Pride and
Life in the United States Navy, as
we found it, is delightful. Breakfast,
which is served at about 9:30, consists
of a canteloupe, rolls, coffee and hard
boiled eggs. Not all the criticisms
aimed at Josephus Daniels are fair, but
he really ought to order a few more
minutes for the eggs. There's no good
trying to be neutral about eggs. Mr.
Daniels must make up his mind and
have them either delinitely hard or
frankly soft. Democrats may straddle
the League of Nations, but eggs are
After breakfast on a destroyer it is
customary to go forward to the front
deck, where the camp chairs are, and
sit around discussing that man from
Philadelphia who would have been
such a good reporter if it hadn't been
for his love affairs. He wasn't bad so
much as just weak. And so it goes on
until luncheon, with talk of this one
who has married, and that one who is
dead, and the other who's gone to the
magazines. Of course, during the war
rigid discipline obtained and no sailor
was allowed to take a camp chair until
all the officers were seated. And
naturally there were rough nights in
the North Sea during which all th'.
cftnip chairs were kept downstairs for
Space System Involved
After a substantial luncheon of cold
meat, potato salad and strawberry ice
cream a view of the yacht races is in
order. The race yesterday was be?
tween th.3 Shamrock and the Resolute.
In England the form would be "be?
tween Shamrock and Resolute." The
space system of compensation is not
known to English pressmen. Ameri?
can forms are good enough for us; and
as wc said ^.he race was between the
Shamrock and the Resolute. It began
with a reach out to sea straight toward
Spain, but not so far, as the wind was
light. The second leg was to a point
just off our house at Navesink Beach.
It isn't really our housf, but we rent
it for the summer. Personally, we
wanted to call it Kamp Komfort, but
this was overruled, and so whenever
it becomes necessary to refer to it
ae-ain during the course of the tech?
nical story of the race we will have to
stick to the cumbersome form "our
house." The last leg of the cours;
was back toward the Tribuno office.

calmed When Officials
Call the Struggle Off
By W. O. McGeehan
Officially, the second act of the
sea drama, staged for the most part
in the open Atlantic yesterday with
the defender Resolute and the chal?
lenger Shamrock IV, is recorded as
no race. The fickle wind failed
Resolute after she was leading
Shamrock by more than five mile?.
It left her utterly after she had
rounded the f?cond mark and was
starting home on the third leg of
the triangular race, leaving Sham?
rock creeping along on an oily sea
five miles behind until she seemed a
Charles Francis Adams, skipper
of the defender, outsailed the skipper
of Shamrock. The trim Resolute
danced away from the stolid Looking
challenger after the first eight miles
of the sail to the open sea. At th?
first stake buoy Shamrock peemed to
be fumbling about like a stultified
crab, while Resolute seemed to lift
her skirts like a dainty young thing
and, dash away from her befuddled
Once they estimated that Shamroe*:
was seven miles behind. It ?irVed ns
though Resolute would win by a bigger
margin than ever a cup defender held
before. The wind died at the second
stake, and what seemed certain to be
an utter rout became no race at all.
"Lipten luck," declared some one. "It
won him the first race when he was
being beaten and it saved him from
the worst defeat that a yacht ever
if it was luck to have been shown
that a racing machine upon which yoo
have staked your hea.-t's desire could
never sweep to its goal, then Sir
Thomas was lucky. Those who saw
what the biggest and weirdest flotilla
that ever gathered for a fitrht for the
America's Cup saw outside yesterday
are convinct-d that only a senee of ?in?
cidents wouhi bring- a victory for Sir
Thomas. Seamen and landsmen, they
will agree that Resolute is the bettor
boat and was better handled.
Resolute was seven miles from the
finishing line when the official si\

The oily sea near the yellow Vm
brose lightship was cluttered with i
most numerous and bizarre array of
craft that ever asscinbled tu vu./ a
cup race, long before the officia: start
ing time. The huge navy blimp, the
X-C 10, drifted above with marks like
prints of huge mule kicks on her sky
blue sides, while airplanes ar.d hydro?
aeroplanes buzzed fretfully around her.
It was evident to the -?r^enest lands?
man that the start would not be on
The mixture of iil-assorted vessels
drifted closer and closer together until
plebeian little fishing launches were
rudely jostling aristocratic little power
boats with shining white sides and
glistening metal parts. The sea was
as sluggish as an oil pond, and the air
was as still as the desert.
Breeze Finally Conwa
Experts, wetting their fingers, felt for
a breeze and looked out to sea rest?
lessly. It came slowly, very gradually
indeed, but it came. It was not much
of a Railing breeze, but it was a breeze
that might increase and give one or
bcth of the yachts a chance to finish
within the stipulated six hours' time.
While the spectator boats were
snoozing on the oily green waters the
two yacr 5 were shifting about as
though bearching for wind power.
Shamrock seemed able to step oat in
hardly a whisper of a breeze, while
Resolute seemed only to drift.
About 1:30 the warning signals were
hoisted and ?he racers began to maneu?
ver up to the start. The snub nose of
the Shamrock then seemed to point
uncertainly, while the dainty Resolute
I became a thing of life. The American
i racer acted like a thoroughbred that
j knows the way of the track, while
Shamrock seemed like a green young
