festo issued yesterday on the occasion
of the national holiday by President
Carranzo.
The President announced that ho
Vould fight to a finish to put down the
icbclllon and that ho would not turn
over tho Presidency to any ono except
ft legally elected successor. He enun
ciated the prlnciplo of the elimination
of the coup d'etat, from Mexican poll
tics, asserting that tho Presidency
must not be a prize for military
leaders.

'Washington May 6. Mexican rebel
tjents here to-nleht announced receipt
of a telegram from Mexico City saying
the President of the municipality was
organizing a civilian guard "for the "pur
pose of protecting the city In the event
of Its evacuation.'
The information, tho agents said, was
construed by them to mean that Car
ranza hod determined to abandon tho

a force probably would not be under

Devoted to Work
MOSCOW, May 2 Residents of
Moscow, estimated to number
150,000, celebrated May day in a
novel fashion, devoting part of the
holiday to productive work. Long
processions, of volunteer workers
filled the strcotB early in the
morning. Each worker received
a pound of bread and also a
Workman's bag, which was tho
almost universal decoration of
the day in Moscow. Last night
there were dances in the streets
and theatrical performances.
Nicolni Lenine and other leaders
of the,- Bolshevijti delivered
speeches. The entire population,
whilo imbued with the carnival
spirit, seemed impressed with the
idea that working on May day
was most appropriate in tho task
of upbuilding the country.

New York Hebald learns that the Ber

was nolnted out that tho Russian cam
pnlgn might easily solve ono of the most
vexing puzzles the Mueller Cabinet faces,
namely, the getting rid of tho Erhardt
marine brigade and other reactionary
military formations which refuse to be
inustered out without generous compen
sation. A high Government official said
that while the subject had not yet been
broached It was his personal opinion that
tho Government would consent to be a
party to the movement under certain
conditions and would let such German
troops be used against Russia.
Dr M. Porsch, Ukrainian Minister In

the Allies to Insist that Germany make

payments without runner ueiay.
Three PUns Proposed.
The agreement on the proposal by Sir
i,r. .omn after three distinct
schemes had been before the conference.
The proposals advanced by Great Brit-j
' . .
aln. Franco and Belgium were:
1. The British suggestion for inter
allied currency notes. Issued by tho
.allied Governments Jointly at normal
exchange rates, with guaranteed pay
ment at the expiration of five years
by the temporary withdrawal from
circulation of a corresponding
.amount of each Government's treas
ury Issues, each Government to ac
cept a proportion of this Issue com
mensurate with their International
purchases of foodstuffs and raw ma
terials. The total amount of such
a Joint Issuo has not yet been deter
mined.' 2. The Belgian plan, which provides
for an Issue of International gold
bonds through an international ex
change Institute which Is to be cre
ated, the bonds to bear a definite
rate of Interest and to be guaranteed
by the national wealth' of each par
ticipating country. These bonds
would not be legal tender, but merely
negotiable between participating
countries for the payment only or
foodstuffs and materials which are
indispensable to European recon
struction. 3 The French proposal, represent
ing a combination of the British and
the Belgian features, whereby the
Governments would issue non-Interest
paying bonds, which would be
conslderedMcgal tender only Insofar
as concerns payment for necessary
foodstuffs and materials, but not rep
resenting a new currency Issue,
which likely would Inflate further
International Issues.
The congress also Is discussing va
rious schemes for Improving shipping
facilities between peaceful nations,
which will be transmitted to the various
Governments represented for develop
ment by official commercial depart
ments. i ' "

WILLIAM H. ANDERSON,
State superintendent of the

night he would run as an in
dependent candidate for United
States Senator in New York
State, if such action should be
the "one thing absolutely es
sential" to tho defeat of Senator
James W. Wudsworth, Jr.
"It is against league principles
and policy for ono of its men to
,run for office," said Mr. Ander
son, and he emphasized the word
"run." "It is no violation for a
league man to lie down across
the path to be stepped on in order
to trip up a wet who is a candi
date. I am strongly- in favor of
the independent candidacy
proposition as a sort of an anti
Wadsworth insurance, as kind of
second hitch on the proposition.
But my judgment is it would be
far better to have someone out
Bide of the league staff as' such a
candidate, if a good man can be
selected to make the sacrifice
hit."

George Lunn ot Schenectady and a

down the powerful unit rule which In
effect gives to the Tammany leaacr

for tho next nominee for President.
Tho Lunn resolution to throw out
the unit rule was beaten by a vote of
64 to 8. Those who cast their ballots
against the organization were Lathrop
Brown of St. James and George K.
Kent of Jericho, of the First Congress
district qn Long Island: Calvin Tomp
kins of Westchester county. William;
R Doyle of Amsterdam, Mayor Lunn.j
John J. McCab of Glens Falls.

Smiling and confident. Mr. Murphy
sat with a little group of veteran Tam
many leaders while he heard-himself
aasailed and defied... He was almost
Indifferent. Never hi his career as
Stato' leader was his grip on the Statu
organisation more firm and hla will
more readily obeyed.
Lnnn Makes Little Impression?'
Although recognized by President Wlf
son as the dispenser of Federal .patron
n.r. nnd nrtmed hv the Administration
forces for the big "battle" Mayor,
Lunn could hardly make a dent In the'
organization. The Mayor announced he i
was for William G. McAdoo, tho Prcsl-1
dent's son-in-law, for President. That i
started a little mild hnndclapplng. but,
. . ... . .., MM. - 1
nothing llite a uemonsirauun. me
name ot President Wllsott. appeared to
have lost Us terror for Tammany.
Mayor Lunn was able to summon only
a little band to his Federal standard.
Mr. McAdoo's name was the only ono
of the candidates mentioned In the con
vention. It was as plain as It the an
nouncement had been made officially by
Mr. Murphy himself, or the chairman of
the State. Committee, that Tammany and
New York will not favor Mr. McAdoo.
The delegates will not take a stand
here for a candidate. The Champ Clark,
McAdoo, A. Mitchell Palmer, Gov. Cox
and some other booms are represented
hv men u-hn are dolne hard nronaa-anda
work with little success. j
Oov. Bmtth will head the delegation to .
tho convention and Mr. Murphy will I
tell the delegation how to vote. Mayor'
Lunn'.i threat to take his appeal to the
National Convention means that the
fight wilt be renewed whin the dclcgates
reach California, and If the Wilson
forces control the Lunn faction may hope
for recognition.
Samuel Seabury of New York, former
ly one of Tammany's favorites, backed
up Mayor Lunn and furnished the sensa
tion of the evening to the delegates and
alternates assembled in the ballroom of
the Ten Eycfc Hotel.
Sealmry Backs Mayor Lnnn.
"This unit rule Is merely a device to
enable a bare majority to disfranchise
a minority," Mr. Seabury said. "The
Tnmmany paw will control the delega
tion. You all know It. Tammany Is con
trolled by Mr. Murphy. You all know
that also. Under the "unit rule Mr.
Murphy will control the ninety votes
of this State; the will of one may be
Imposed on the entire delegation."
Stepping out In front of the delegates
Mr. Seabury looked squarely at Mr.
Murphy, siting beside Norman E. Mack.
Morgan J, O'Brien and other prominent
Democrats, and speaking' above the
Governor's head said:
"I say this to you Mr. Murphy: you
will gain nothing If you force through
this unit rule here. Those who are
ready to obey you will do It without a
nilo. Those who will not accept your
dictation will not be bound by any rule
you put through.
"Delegations from this State have
gone to national conventions for years
tied to the Tammany tail and have been
the laughing stock of the nation. New
York was an Insignificant and contempt
ible party at Baltimore- and we may be
that again If we go to San Francisco
tied andragged by one man."
Mr. Seabury appealed to the delegates
to reject the unit rule.

London, May 6. British Industry to
day came squarely up, against the ne
cessity of paying the nation's war debts
when a deputation which called on
Austen Chamberlain, Chancellor of the
Exchequer, reported to the Federation
of farltlsh Industries that Mr. Chamber
lain stood firm for cither tho 60 per
cent, war profit .tax or a flat rate of
from 20 to 37 i per cent, on all profits,
or a levy against accumulated wealth.
Mr. Chamberlain was reported to be de
termined that one of these methods be
applied to raise i 300,ooo,ouu.
Furthermore, the Chancellor of the
Exchequer was reported to be deter
mined to cut off the war debt during the
years of the present prosperity.
Despite howls frOm all classs of
manufacturers against all three ot the
echemes and the proposal to gj over Mr.
Chamberlain's head and oopeal directly
to the Premier for relief, the deputation
voted on which one of the three Cham
berlain alternatives they would recom
mend acceptance or. The result of the
ballot was not published, but the fact
that the votu was taken indicates that
Mr. Chamberlain convinced them that
one of the three courses must bo followed.

SAYS ALL IS HARMONIOUS
Stage Now Finally Set for a
United Front at the Chi
cago Convention.
Peace was patched-up yesterday be
tween William C. Procter, chief finan
cial backer of tho Wood lTesldentlal
campaign, who has the tltlo of chair
man of the campaign committee, and
Frank II. Hitchcock, tho practical
field manager of the hunt for dele
gates. Word to that effect wa3 made
public after a cotjferonco between
them and Major-Gen. Wood.
"The situation la one of entire har
mony and accord." said tho General
himself. "Both managers nro worto
ing everything Is working. Some
people woulo like It to stop." '
"Then you uro satlslied with both
Hitchcock and Procter?" he was
asked. The soldier sidestepped neatly,
replying: "I nm satisfied with the
world."
It was tho first time that Mr. Hitch
cock had talked to Mr. iToctcr for
more than six weeks. How much he
talked with him yesterday Is ln doubt.
At tho request of Gen. Wood ho left
his headquarters in tho Hotel Man
hattan to attend the conference at the
Hotel Imperial.
According to icport Gen. Wood did
most of the talking, hnvlng decided It
was Just as well to make himself clear
In the presence of both of tho warring
managers. Ho Is understood to have
stated to Mr. Hitchcock, so that Mr.
Procter had no trouble In hearing, that
he was satisfied with his handling of
ihn nniiticnl fni! nf tho came and
wanted him to continue. On Mr., Proc
ter's business ability the General is saw
to have laid mucn stress.

taken to mean much or Utile, as ono j
t It. It denied nothing
and hinted that an effort would bo made j
to preserve the outward semblance of 1
harmony at least.
Talking with tho newspaper men after
the conference, Gen. Wood denied there
were any big campaign funds behind
him. "If any man ln the field has less
money, I pity him," said he. "I know
of no corporation behind me and I know
of no Improper use of money. Any
charges to that effect are groundless."

Special lo This Sex and New Yon IUcAt.,
Washington, May 0. Senntor
11 Irani W. Johnson (On!.) nniiouiiwl
this afternoon in tnoi-t. cniplm'tlc terms
Hint he will not accept the noininiV
tloiitor 'VIee-I'rcsltleiU in imy ciremu
.-timces tU the Republican convention
He made the statement after con
ferences with Senator Lodge (Mass.)
and Senator Knox (Pit.).
Its linmcdlato effect was to dis
courage greatly the current tllscus-
lon of n Republican ticket with.
Senator Knox In first place and his
friend Senntor Johnson In second
place, but It did not stop speculation
a.s to n tosslb!c agreement on u
nominee for President between the
two Senators.
"I would like," said Senator John
son to (lie assembled newspaper men,
"to have It go out In tho most un
qualified terms that I will not in any
possible circumstances, accept a nomU
nation for Vice-President. You will
have noted that the same gentlemen
who arc diligently urging nic for Hint
plnee are the same who are enrne$Uy
insisting that no chances must bo
taken that I might possibly be Presi
dent." Johnson Is Very 8areatle.
Tho last sentence was ln the char
acteristic Johnsonian accents of pro
found, sarcasm. Tho announcement
Oallfced no surprise when It becamo
generally known. None of his friends
has ever suspected, oven remotely,
that Senator Johnson would take sec
ond place. He would prefer, they say,
to remain In his place In the Senate.
Senator Johnson was at tho Capitol
to-day for tho first time since his re
turn from the Indiana primary cam
paign. Ho had n very busy day, but
at the end there was a good deal of
mystery concerning what had trans
pired. The first conference was with Senator
Lodge. While neither Senator would dis
cuss what happened, and there was no
third person present, It Is understood
very definitely that tho discussion dealt
with the question o'f convention organ
ization and with tho resolutions that
.shall be adopted touching on tho peace
treaty and League of Nations.
Tho friends of Senator Johnson had
tentatively agreed before ho returned to
Washington that they would withdraw
opposition to a conservative for tem
porary chairman provided the Liberals
should have tho permanent chairman
ship. At first Senator Borah (Idaho)
was the Liberal selection for permanent
chairman, but ho took himself out of
consideration. Insisting It would bo bet
ter to present the name of some other
representative nf tho same party cle
ment by reason of the promlnen part
he has taken ln recent fighting and the
certainty that he has offended some of
the party managers. Accordingly, the
Liberals tentatively agreed that former
Senator Bcverldgo (Ind.) should have
their support for the permanent chair
manship. His name was suggested and
urged by Senator Borah.
All this took place during Senator
Johnson's absence, and as soon as' he
returned from Indiana he discussed It
all with Senator Lodgo. Apparently no
decision was reached; at least neither
Senator would say a word about what
happened.
Platform Provisions Discussed.
As to the platformleclaratlon -i the
treaty and league .much quiet discussion
has been afoot recently. SSmo of the
Irreconcllables recently threatened that
unless Ihe pKink were made broad
enough for them to stand squarely on
It they Would Introduce in the conven
tlon a resolution specifically Indorsing
fine course of Senators who voted
against giving to the British Empire six
votes In the League of Nations assem
bly while the United States got only
one.
This would, if adopted, imply that the
group of "mild reservation" Senators
who voted against the Irreconcllables
and In favor of giving Britain the
largest vote had fallen without the
pale. The possibility of such a left,
handed condemnation worried them, and
the result is n substantial agreement
that the plank shall condemn the treaty
and the plan. Indorse tho Senate's Insls.
tence on proper protection to American
Interests and mako a general declaration
In favor of the creation of an Inter
national court of arbitral Justice. This,
It Is believed, will be so framed as to
satisfy ntl elements. Persons who said
they had some Information about the
Lodge-Johnson discussions were confi
dent there would be no serious friction.
But It was the long personal talk be
tween Senator Johnson and Senator
Knox that set the politicians agog. Then
are som scores of them In Washington
to-night who would give a handsome
price for a transcript of that conversa
tion. It was obvious, so commentators,
assumed, that the talk must havo dealt
with the recent announcement by Sena.
