(Cox .Will Take
Irish Cause to
League, He Says
Candidate Promises That
He Will, if Elected, Be
Ready to Plead for Any
of the Oppressed Nations
Attacks Enemies Again
Tells Montana Hearers That
the Slash Fund Charge
Has Been Fully Proved
.BUTTE, Mont., Sept. 9.?A definite
pledge to "present the Irish cause" to
the League of Nations, in event of his
election, and further attacks on Repub?
lican leaders and that party's contri
lutions were made here to-night by
Governor Cox of Ohio, in 'closing his
Montana campaign.
In three extepsiv? speeches to-day,
at Helena, Anaconda, and Butte, and in
r. half-dozen rear platform talks en
route, the Democratic Presidential can?
didate, concluding the first week of his
western tour, discussed the league, the
Republican "corruption fund" and la?
bor Issues.
The Irish question developed at the
Governor's meeting- here in front of
the courthouse lawn.
"It would be my duty," he Baid, "and
very quickly availed of, as a friend of
peace, asserting the friendly right of
any member of the league, to present
the Irish cause to the attention of the
3e>gue under the authority given by
Article XI, and give to Ireland, or any
other aggrieved people, the oppor?
tunity to plead their cause before the
bar of civilized opinion."
Dealing with the testimony before
the Senatorial investigating committee
at Chicago, Governor Cox made fresh
assaults upon Will H. Hays, Republican
national chairman; Treasurer Upham
and his assistant, Henry y. Blair. The
Governor declared that the Chicago
testimony had confirmed his "slush
fund" charges on the heels of denials
by Chairman Hays and other Repub?
lican officials.
Alleges Proof of Quota Charges
Governor Cox declared that convinc?
ing evidence in support of his Pitts?
burgh charges that quotas were al
loted for fifty-one cities toward a Re-_
publican fund M $8,145,000 was given'
to the Senate Investigating committee
at Chicago yesterday.
The Governor referred in detail to
the testimony, especially to that of
Henry M. Blair, assistant Republican
treasurer, and Dudley S. Blossom, head
of the Republican drive in Cleveland.
The evidence, he asserted, substanti?
ated his Pittsburgh list of a $400,000
quota for Cleveland and also a $25,000
quota for Georgia.
Producing a copy of the Republican
treasurer's "Form 101," of which Mr.
Blair had testified all copies were dis?
approved and locked up in a safe, Gov?
ernor Cox asked:
"If all copies were locked up, where
did I get this'one?' They haven't yet
charged me with being*1! safe blower."
In discussing the Senate committee's
testimony Governor Cox said that he
had reports that to-day Hamilton F.
Kean, Republican National Committee
man for New.Jersey, had admitted that
the quota of $100,000 given by Governor
Cox at Pittsburgh for Newark. N. J.,
was correct, as also was that for Jer?
sey City.
"Referring to Mr. Blossom's testimony
Governor Cox said:
"I charged that the Cleveland quota
was $400,060, and he admitted it. Also,
there was testimony that my quota for
Atlanta, Ga., was true."
When his quota list was pronounced |
inaccurate by Chairman Hays and
Treasurer Upham, Governor Cox sa.id,
newspapers carried reports that the
organization officers "rehearsed" before
testifying. The Governor promised
"further revelations soon," declaring
evWence was "coming in every day of
the conspiracy of big business to buy
the Presidency."

Sheriff Will Guard Polls
Deputies to Protect Voters in
Chicago Fight
Special Dispatrh to The Tribune
CHICAGO, Sept. 9.? For the 'first
time in the history of Chicago deputy
sheriffs will guard the polls next
Wednesday.
The Republican three-cornered
scramble for the nomination for j
State's Attorney has evoked such bit?
terness among the contending candi- |
dates that it was decided to impanel a
special squad of deputy sneriffs.
Fear that intimidation will spring up !
?11 over the city, that the new women i
voters will experience a lesson in their |
first example of full suffrage which i
w.U act as a deterrent rather than as !
an encouragement to them, and that ;
the police will aid City Hall candidates j
were incidents which brought on the
decision.
Sheriff Charles W. Peters, at the re?
quest of the Board of Election Com?
missioners, declared he would have
deputy sheriffs standing side by side
with the city policemen in guarding
the polls.

Crane'? Condition Worse
Heart Specialists Summoned to

Special Dispatch to The Tribun?
PITTSFIELD, Mass., Sect. 9.?The j
condition of W. Murray Crane, former
United States Senator, who has been
confined to his hoi#c at Dalton since
he was stricken at the Coolidge noti- )
?cation meeting in Northampton, has
become so serious that Dr. Brace W.
Paddock, the family physician, deemed
it advisable to-day to call in heart
specialists. He accordingly summoned
Dr. F. S. Meara, of New York, and Drs.
John Jenks Thomas and Hugh Will?
iams, of Boston.
Dr. Paddock said that although his
patient's circulation showed a slight
improvement, Mr. Crane is "still a very,

sciousness and is still able to recog- j
nize members of his family, f

told of the difficulties of raising money
among women voters.
"We thought that since women had
assumed the privileges of the ballot
they ought to assume some of its re?
sponsibilities," she said, but her figures
showed that she had collected $35,
867.57 from only five counties in Illi?
nois and that all except $326 had come
from Cook County. She said she had
tried to appoint vice-chairmen in each
of the 101 counties of the etate, but
had succeeded' in only sixty-two.
There was one subscription of $2,000
and thirteen of $1,000 in Mrs. Baur's
list. The $2,000 was received last May
from Mrs. John H. Gary, the witness
said, and she explained that it was
divided between two fiscal years "in ac?
cordance with what I%then understood
was a general plan."
"Did you have any sinister purpose
in raising these funds?" queried Sen?
ator Kenyon, asking a stock question.
"No, air; it was for the best purpose
in the world," replied Mrs. Baur, and
she, then smilingly assured Senator
Pomerene that the remark was not a
reflection, upon "us Democrats."
At the start of the day's session
there was evidence that Charles Boes
chenstein, of Edwardsville, 111., Demo?
cratic national co.mmitteeman for the
state, had sent letters to postmasters
asking voluntary contributions to his
party's campaign fund. Five of these
addressed to the postmasters at Au?
gusta, 111., a rural town in Hancock
County, were given to the committee
by an emissary of the postmaster, who
explained that the official would be
too busy to come in person until next
week. "He also said the postmaster
was a Progressive who had won ap?
pointment by a civil service examina?
tion after the Democratic incumbent
resigned a year ago.
Mr. Blair was on the stand the rest
of the morning and at the start of the
afternoon session. The Illinois and
Ohio chairmen followed, Mr. Kinney's
testimony being especially brief.
Mr. Kelly turned in*;a list showing
the quotas, pledges and payments from
the different counties of Ohio. He said
that in some ten counties there were
drives for additional funds to be used
for county purposes. Senator Reed
pointed out that in the case of Toledo
und Cleveland these additional drives
brought the totals to $100,000 and $400,
000, the , amounts named for those
places in the Pittsburgh speech of
Governor Cox.
Senator Pomerene asked whether
contributors would be reimbursed if
the Ohio total went beyond the figure
set by the national committee. Mr.
Kelly said his duties were confined to
collecting and transmitting tho money
to the national treasurer and he did
not know what that official did with it.
Mr. Owen's testimony brought first
chuckles, then gales of laughter from
the committee and audience. He began
by identifying himself to Senator Reed
as a "professional money digger," and
said he had been engaged in that work
for twenty years. He was asked at
once about the substitute for Form 101,
but would not acknowledge original
knowledge of it. Finally he told Sen?
ator Reed that he might have made
suggestions about every paragraph in
the document, but knew nothing about
it in its completed state.
He identified several paragraphs as
"orthodox," but disclaimed knowledge
of every one referring to city quotas,
campaigns and chairmen. He said he
had attended a meeting in Chicago at
which the document was supposed to
have been discussed, but left after
listening to speeches by Mr. Upham
and Will Hays.
Mr. Owen said he hid spent about
five months in organization work in
the five states he supervised about
half that time being spent in Ohio.
He was asked to describe his duties,
and said he visited county chairmen
and state directors and looked over
the field.
"Didn't you make suggestions to
them?" was one question.
"No, sir; very seldom. I have been
told my look is better than my word,"
was the enigmatic reply.
When the witness declared he did
not know the quotas of the various,
towns he visited, Senator Reed indir
dated that he had no more questions.
Senator Spencer brought out the age
of the system for collecting Repub?
lican funds and Senator Pomerene took
up the examination. Mr. Owens greeted
the new questioner as a fellow Ohioan
1 and told him that Mr.. Kelly's scheme
i of doubling the Ohio county quotas
had not been followed in Kentucky,
Indiana, Tennessee and West Virginia.
"Dont you think they rather bun?
coed the people, of our state by
'doubling their quotas?" smilingly-in?
quired Senator Pomerene. '?'('"
"Ohio buncoed the country by get?
ting all the candidates for President,"
interposed Senator Kenyon. \
Michigan Quota 5350,000 "'"' '
R. K. Thompson, a Cincinnati news?
paper man, who is Republican financial
director for Illinois, and .Carl D.
Fritsche, executive secretary of the
Michigan way's and means committee,
testified- at the ni?hf session.- Mr.
Fritsche said the-Michigan quota wafi
??250,000 for the Republican National
Committee and $100,000 for state pur?
poses. In dividing the quota among
the Congressional districts the figures
were boosted, he said, on the theory
that it was necessary to ask for more
than be expected to get. He asked for
$388,400 to get $250,000 for the national
committee.
"Another case of 'expanded truth,' "
Senator Pomerene remarked.
Mr. Fritsche said he ?asked for $200,
000 in Wayne County, including the
city'of Detroit. Of ?ibis sum $69,53i
had been raised up to last Saturday
night. In the entire state, includinj
Wayne County, cash collected and un
paid pledges total $170,083.65. Baj
County, with a ?quota of $10,000, wai
asked to raise $15,000, Mr.. Fritsch?
said. Eleven thousand dollars was casi
and the rest pledges. Other countiei
which have raised their quotas, an
Luce, Baraga, Ionia, Cas*, Dickersor,
Schoolcraft and Menominee.
Mr. Fritsche . said he had receive
seventy-one contributions of $1,00
each and, at the other extreme, 356 o
$1 each. No contributions of mor
than $1,000 have been accepted, he said
Senator Kenyon asked why so mucl
money was needed in the Michigai
campaign, as there is no Senatoria
election.
Mr. Fritsche said.the cost of cam
paigning in Michigan would be ver
'high,' and cited the expenses of a coun
ty meeting at Battle Creek, The open
house rental for one night was $75, h<
said; the band cost $100, decoration
$50 and the speakers' traveling ex
penses $100. He pointed out that i
would cost $25,000 to hold one meet
ing in each county in the state.
Mr. Blair was cross-examined b,
Senator Reed, who read from a docu
ment produced by Mr. Blair arid whicl
Mr. Blair said was a substitute fo
Form 101. Mr. Reed asked the wit
ness if the local chairman appointe?
in each of the 54 cities where ther
were to be drives was to "accept th
quota placed upon the city by th
national treasurer."
"But he never did that to my knowl
edge," Mr. Blair interjected. He -ex
plained that the plan "in his mind
was for the state chairman of th
Ways and Means Committee to selec
local chairmen in cities, who thei
would be confirmed by Mr. Upham "t?
make it official," and that Mr. Uphan
should pass on to the local Chairman i
city quota suggested by the stat
head.
His testimony at many points showei
that the ideas which he had in hi
mind were rejected by his. superior
when placed on paper, which was thi
fate of Form 101. '
Mr. Blair produced a copy of tha
form and when it was compared with thi
copy of the same form which Governo
Cox had sent to the committee by Ed
mund Moore, his personal representa
tive{ the Governor s copy was found t<
?be incomplete. An entire paragraph
which appeared in Mr. Blair's copy, wa
omitted from that sent by the Gov
ernor. The paragraph suggested tha
contributions of $5,000 and $10,000 b
accepted, removing the $1,000 limi
fixed by Chairman Hays. The cop;
furnished by the Governor merely syg
gested that contributions of "fror
$6,000 upward be received."
Mr. Blair turned over to the com
mitt.ee the original and final quoi
sheets of the Republican treasurer's
office and a letter and two telegrams.
The sheets developed that the first list
was based upon a ^6 pej cent-calcula?
tion of the last Red Cross.quota.. It
totaled $6,560,800. The: witness' own
estimate of what the states ought to
give totaled $6,075,000 and Mr. Up
ham's estimate, based upon political
experience of what might be expected,
amounted to $4,877,500. The list
finally adopted totaled $4,809,000.
Whfte he planned drives in fifty-four
cities, Mr. Blair said, it was found im?
possible to carry oui the program be?
cause of local conditions in some
places. Her mentioned Minneapolis, St.
Paul, Dallas and Houston as places
where the drives were abandoned be?
cause it was "not expedient" to start
them. "Our experience in Atlanta was
not so encouraging," he explaineo? re?
ferring to. t*ie testimony yesterday of
C W.. McClure, Georgia state chairr
man, about the failure of the drive
there. .
MrL.Blair testified that one copy oi
Form 101, "which, he said, was never
issued, when the national ways and
means committee rejected it. had gone
put of his office. Either Harvey H
Mather, Kansas ways and means chair?
man, or Paul C Gehert, Kansas di?
rector, had received it, he said.
Senator Reed kept up his fire on tht
witness and- finally obtained assent tc
propositions that the national ways
and means committee- appointed th?
state chairmen,;then sent.paid workers
to aid ?these chairmen and finally bj
talcing money raised by these agencies
approved their acts.
"Sotif a quota of $400.000 was fixe?
for. Cleveland by the state chainnai
?nd used as a goal by yo,ur paid worke:
there, .your., national committee ap
proved it and is responsible?" sug
gested the Senator.
. Mr." Blair explained that the leader:
of .the Cleveland drive asked that the;
be allowed to raise $350,000 as tha
city's part of the Ohio quota o
iH'50,000, with th?3"proviso that.if the;
went to $400,000 the difference woul
bo applied to the purposes of th
county committee in Cuyahoga Countj
Then., he' was asked if instruction
haa been issued to slow up because o
the revelations, before th? committee.
''Not Jo sjow up but to speed up,
said the witness. "As a matter of fad
subseriptions have been incrcasin
since Governor Cox made his charge
to such an extent that I think he reall
ought to be listed with my pai
wcrkets."
"If you approve his work that make
us unanimous," said Senator Reed, "fo
we think he is doing a great work."
"Voluntary Subscriptions have als
increased because many people thin
we ar? being persecuted," Supplemente
the witness.
"Do you mean that this committe
is persecuting you?" interjected Ser
ator Kenyon.,^ ?
"No sir," said Mr*. Blair, "but man
people think that the Republican con:
mittee's plan of a campaign for direc
covenants openly arrived at 'is bein
misrepresented,' if I may be permitte
?to quote our President."
The examination turned back t
quotas of. various cities, and Senate
Reed read from 'the official bulleti
| sent out" by-Mr. Blair's office to fun
Corkers and asked him to reconcil
Statements therein with his figure
and those given by Fred W. Upham, ni
tional treasurer of the party.
After Mr. Blair had explained th?
the figure for Boston and its thrt
dozen surrounding towns was fir!
$100,000 and later $150,000, the Sen?
tor quoted a bulletin item stating ths
"metropolitan Boston wills to rais
250 per cent of its original quota
Asked if the statement in The Journi
was true or false, the witness said h
knew only that the language was in
telegram received from H. C. Whitehil
'regional director.
"Besides," he added, "the messag
does not say that the local committe
.accepted the quota.as..$260,000."
$63,000 From Massachusetts
Senator Edge read figures handed t
him by Mr. Upham showing that up t
yesterday $63,000 had been receive
from Massachusetts. The New Jerse
member of the committee said he ws
trying to help Senator Reed's questior

The questioning then turned to Ohi

about the quotas in that state and r?

membering that its first quota was S65,
000, but that after it had raised $85,000
the figure was placed at $100,000.
"That is the ngure Governor Cox
gave, is it not?" asked Senator Reed.
"Well, he ought to know," retorted
Mr. Blair. "He is right there in Ohio,
and the city quotas are public property
there. This campaign is not being
kept under a bushel." ?
Mr, Blair said he discouraged under?
writing of city quotas, and was then
asked to explain a "flash from the
I field" in August 16 bulletins which
stated: '
I "Cincinnati business men have un
| derwritten that city's quota, the full
i amount to be delivered by Septena
j bei 1."
Explains Truth and "Boll"
"Is that the truth ?" asked the Sen?
ator. . '
"I consider that just 'bull,' " said
Mr. Blair.
"What is the difference between
'bull' and truth?" pressed the Sena?
tor.
" 'Bull' is expanded truth," defined
the witness, an?i the merriment lasted
until Senator Kenyon rapped for order.
The witness said there may have
been a letter from Cincinnati employ?
ing the term "underwritten," but that
he did not consider such a letter some?
thing upon which money could be bor?
rowed; and he added that such a possi?
bility was the essence of underwriting.
Senator Reed questioned Mr. Blair
about a luncheon in the Tower Room
of the Union League club here July 6.
Will Hays was present and spoke, the
witness said. Fred W. Upham was
host, and other guests included John
T. Adams, of Iowa, national vice-chair?
man, and practically all the paid field
workers and regional directors.
Mr. Blair denied that the question
of city quotas was discussed. The
substitute for Form 101 was given oui
at this luncheon, he said, but nc
copies of 101 were present.
Edge Objects to Moore's Methods
Senator Edge halted proceedings
with an objection to the part beinj:
taken in the hearing by Edmond H
Moore, Governor Cox's personal repre
sntatjv, who for two days has sat be
side Senator Reed and suggested ques?
tions for him to ask the witness.
"I don't object to the prosecutor ir
the case prompting the Senator, but '.
do object to him asking audible ques
tions which are plainly directed to th?
witness," the New Jersey Senator de?
clared.
"I am only suggesting names ane
leads," Mr. Moore retorted. "If yoi
don't want them I will quit."
Senator Kenyon announced himsell
interested in the "bull" aspect of thi
campaign. He asked if, as a mattei
of fact, the Republican ways and means
bulletins, the thousands of speeches ol
Congressmen sent out by both parties
and letters mailed under the "Jamie
son plan" of soliciting Democratic funds
"could not all be classed largely as
"bunk."
"In my candid opinion," said Mr
Blair, "there is too much 'bunk' in pol?
itics. I eschewed politics until I was
ffjrty-three years old and I hereby
(raising his hand) assure you I eschew
them again after November 2."

i
| N. Y. Representative Says
Three-Billion Deficit Is
Being Kept From People
From a Staff Correspondent
j AUGUSTA, Me., Sepfc 9.?Represen?
tative W. McGee, of Syracuse, who is
i campaigning, in Maine under the di
j rection of the Republican National
? Committee, makes two points in his
addresses which invariably cause his
auditors to tarry after the meetings
to them further discuss.
The first is that Governor Cox
avowdly stands for a deep water canal
through the Great Lakes for ocean
going vessels. The practical result of
such an. operation would be to lessen
the volume of commerce at American
ports from,Philadelphia to the East?
ern-most port of Maine.
The second point is that there is
no hope of Liberty and Victory bonds
regaining par value while the Demo?
crats are in control. He gives the rea?
son that the Secretary of the Treasury
? is borrowing millions of dollars at 6
per cent to cara for a deficit of $3,
000,000,000 which the Wilson Adminis?
tration is carrying like an indebtness
on a promissory note. He says be?
cause the Democrats lack moral cour?
age they are afraid to tell the people
anything about it.
Cox's Plan Is Opposed
Representative McGee is a member
of the committee on appropriations and
as such speaks with intimate knowl?
edge of the country's finaVices. He
argues with equal positivencss about
Governor Cox's stand for a British con?
trolled waterway through the Great
Lakes for ocean-going vessels, because
the entire delegation in the House^and
Senate, including Governor Alfred E.
Smith are on record as opposing pro?
posed waterway advocated by Governor
Cox and the Demcratic national plat?
form.
"Let the fact soak into the conscious?
ness of the voters of New York and of
the other states with freight ports on
the Atlanti seaboard, and New York
state will go for Harding and Coolidge
by a**haif million votes," said Mr. Mc- ;
Gee tb-day. "I venture the prophecy
that they will be made acquainted with ;
the full significance of it before the
close of the campaign. The entire New
York delegation in the House is on ?
record against the extraordinary prop
osition to turn over the control of the !
Great Lakes to our natural commercial
rivai. Governor Smith also is on rec- !
ord against it. Governor Cox in his
speech of acceptance accepts it along j
with other queer things in the Demo
cratic national platform.
Tells of Big Deficit
"Liberty and Victory bonds will j
never regain an elevation where they
can look the plain people square in the
eye3 until the slight of hand methods
row used by the Wilson Administration
to cover up cold facts are done away
with. I happen to be the New York
member of the Commitete on Appropria?
tions, and as such have first hand
knowledge of certain transactions
which the Wilson people are not tett
ing the people much about.
"There is a- deficit of $8,000,000,000
which the Treasury Department is'
carrying along as much as a man gets
his friends to carry him. along: on
promissory notes. The Wilson Admin?
istration lacks the necessary cour?
age to tell the plain people the truth
about this deficit.
"In order""Tb stall along with it the
Secretary of th? Treasury resorts to
the expedient of borrowing money
from the banks at 6? per cent. Any
schoolboy has sen^e enough to know
that while the government is paying
6 per cent for the $180,000,000 a
year necessary to carry this' deficit
along there is no likelihood that Lib?
erty and Victory bonds, for which the
people paid 100 cents on the dollar,
will regain their lost estate."
