Defeat of Wadsworth at
Primary Urged by Payne
Declares Senator Will Be Beat?
en in November If He Win?
Tax Commissioner George Henry
Payne, who Intends to enter the Re?
publican primaries as a candidate for
united States Senator in opposition to
Senator .lames W. Wadsworth, issued
i a statement yesterday in which he
says that. Mr. Wadsworth will bo de?
feated at the November elections if
ho succeeds in winning the nomination.
"Senator Wadsworth has forced, his
friends to saddle on the Republican
party in this state," said Commis?
sioner Payne, "a record so reaction
I ary, so perverse and so contrary to
the spirit of these d?mocratie times as
to bo almost unbelievable.
"1 appeal to the sane, broad-minded,
clear-thirtking Republican men and
women of this state, for the sake of
Harding and Coolidge, to save this
state from the calamity of his nomi?
nation. I appeal to every Republican
of this state who, whether he considers
himself or herself organization or in?
dependent, to think well that the man
whose political ideas are of the color
and the time of the defunct Federalist
party of one hundred years ago may
not, in his selfish ?less, bring the great
Republican party in this state to the
same unhappy end that marked that
uui'ert unate movement."
Palmer Says He's 'Sore'
At Convention Outcome
Attorney General Believes He
Could Have Been Nominated

Special Dispatch to The Tribune
STROUDSBURG, IV... July 31.?At?
torney General Palmer believes the
persistent candidacy of William G. Mc
Adoo for the Democratic Presidential
nomination at San Francisco cost him
(Palmer) the biggest prize in the
Democratic convention.
The Attorney General discussed the
convention situation informally at his
home here to-day.
"1 am a game loser," he declared, but
a note of bitterness ran through his
conversation. He said ho is "sore"
about many things said about him in
the newspapers, particularly about the
report that he is to resign as Attorney
Not only was there bitterness in ?the
Attorney General's tone, but there was
a definite lack of anything like the
"pep" which marked the Palmer of old
when he lefl the militant forces of the
reorganization Democrats into vic?
torious battle with the Guffey bi?
partisan machine.
This was indicated when Mr. Palmer
was asked if he would attend the for?
mal notification of Governor Cox.
?"1 don't know." replied Mr. Palmer.
"I may; 1 don't know. When is it?
Oh, yes, next week."
Tac Attorney Genera! made it clear
thai he did not want to be a Presi?
dent maker; he wanted to be President.
"It has been said," it was suggested,
'"that you could have put McAdoe
over; tnat your candidacy prevent d
the President's son-in-law fiom get?
ting the nomination."
Mr. Palmer a^ain bit on his smok ?
less cigar, looked straight at his quos
tii ni r and countered with this query:
"Did it ever occur to you that '
could have been nominated if he had
turned it for me ?"

DAYTON, Ohio, July It t. Interest in
Governor Cox's speech accepting the
Democratic nomination for President
centered Jo-day on thai portion of It
which did not go to the printers and
which will not be given out in advance.
Ten thousand words, more or less, of
the acceptance speech are in the mails
to-night directed to newspapers of tbo
country. The speech will not be re?
leased for publication until next Satur?
day, when elaborate notification
ceremonies will be staged here.
A proclamation by Mayor Switzor
to-day designated Saturday a legal
holiday in Dayton. These 10,000
words are not the important part of
the speech, those in the confidence of
the nominee assert. The real heart of
the address will be found in the secret.

will not be made known until expressed

speech was generally accepted. But in
th? last few days the feeling.has been
growing thnt there is something rroro
than novelty behind the ?ntontior. to
withhold part of the nddr?ss.
Will Deal Generally With Leatrue
The league of Nations and prohibi?
tion are the two outstanding issues be?
fore the nominee. Those who usually
can forecast what Cox is to do are pre?
dicting to-day i hut I he speech of ac?
ceptance will deal only generally with
the league isaue, and even .more, gen?
erally with prohibition. '1'he reference
to the league will he laudatory, yet
with a hint, of restraint that, will uivc
satisfaction to raservaiionists, those
friends of Cox state.
In this way, by not being too sp?cifie,
Cox hopes to avoid jarring the sensi?
bilities of any Democratic faction.
Cox: said that, his speech of accept?
ance "contains nothing intended co he
a reply to Richmond P. llobson," the
Alabama Anti -Saloon League lender,
who demanded that Cox say flatly
whether he advocated increasing the
alcohol content, of liquor beyond one
half of one per cent. This statement
is taken to mean that, prohibition is
not to he the subject of the mysterious
two hundred words, and it is confident?
ly predicted that the League of
Nations will not be the subject.
That leaves a groat many issues
unon which ?here is a groat deal of
?.peculation. Following his visit lit
Tral[send, Senator Dovi? I, Walsh, of
Massachusetts, said that "the League
of Nations can be completely ignored
durintt the campaign, without injury
to thd party's chnnces," and that an
"anti-profiteering" stand would be ex?
tremely popular. From this has arisen
conjecture that somo outstanding do?
mestic issue Is to bo the subject of
the guarded two hundred word?.
Cox Wants to Spring Surprise
This much seems certain. Cox will
spring a surprise, perhaps a very great
! ii-prise, when he reaches the Beeret
portion of ni: address, lie said to-day
very frankly that he want* to make
the subject something his opponents
and no cme else have ever thought
about; something forceful, with a
strong popular appeal, that can attract
a united rather than a dividend liemoe
j racy.
Whatever this proves to be?, the
mysterious two hunrdod words ul
: ready have served a purpose. They
have convinced the public here that.
' the League of Nations is to he kept
as much in the background as pos?
sible and that prohibition will be
J even more ignored and avoided by the
Democrats during the campaign. Cox
to-day would not discuss Harding'? de?
mand that he make himself specific
upon the league issue, nor would he
comnv rit on the Republican nomin?os
charges that "powerful international
? interests" are to finance his campaign

of the league pact. He indicated that
