Washington, June 1. President
Wilson will keep his hands off affairs
nt tlio San Francisco convention just
s loner as it appears the delegates
will pick a candldato pledged heart!
and soul to the League of Nations i
covenant as written. !
Hut should it begin to look as if a
man might be chosen who does net
think the Versailles treaty letter per
fect, the .the President will summon
nil the great power his position af
fords to the support of a man whose
Wind goes along with his.
This is the Wilson strategy as it
Was Imparted crisply to Homer S.
Cummlngs, Democratic National Chair
man. Sir. Cummlngs departed to-day
to take charge of convention arrange
ments, Instructions still ringing in his
'pars. The Cabinet met to-day and got
the same impression of Its chief's
plan of battle.
Wilson' Chief Concern.
In other words Mr. Wilson is con
rerned more earnestly with the fight for
tho League of Nations than with the
namo of the Democrat who Is to carry
the party standard. Tho candidate
merely has to measure up to the job ho
will have to do. Merely but to the
mind of Mr. Wilson a considerable num
ber of those whose names will appear
before the convention thus are elimi
nated. The Indications aro there will be voted
en at one time or another no fewer than
thirteen possibilities, the majority fa
vorlto sons, and likely to be lost com
pletely when the real struggle begins.
They are William J. Bryan, Nebraska;
Champ Clark. Missouri: Gov. Cox, Ohio;
John W. Davis, West Virginia; Gov. Ed
wards, New Jersey; James W. Gerard,
Now Tork: Senator Carter Glass, Vir
ginia: Senator Gilbert M. Hitchcock, Ne- j
I braska; Vice-President Marshall, Indi
ana: William O. McAdoo, New Tork;
Secretary of Agriculture E. T, Meredith.
Iowa; Attorney-General Palmer, Penn
sylvania; Senator Hoko Smith. Georgia.
The candidates closest In accord with
the Presldent.on the League of Nations
aro Mr. McAdoo, Mr. Palmer and Mr.
Davis. Some of the others might be
acceptable to Mr. Wilson, notably Mr.
Hitchcock, who as Democratic leader In
the Senate fought the battle of the
Leaguo of Nations for Mr. Wilson. The
certain thing is that nobody on the list
who has fought the League of Nations
even to tho extent of favoring the Lodge
reservations, which Mr. Wilson regards
ri Impossible of acceptance, will re
ceive tho approval of Mr. Wilson.
Third Term Candidacy Remote.
It now seems as though the name of
Mr. Wilson will not come before the
invention, although there has been no
"(tidal announcement to thin effect.
Pome of the President's friends are say-
iitr re has let It be known that he can
i t linaglno any chain of circumstances
cislne where he would find It necessary
" run for a third term. They say
'irthmnore that Mr. Wilson has seen
t thing In the situation which would rc
' "re any statement to this effect In ad-
nrc of tho convention. Just the same
uev admit the possibility of the con
trition being so deadlocked that Mr.
Wilson might actually have to be a can
didate to save the day. It Is a remoto
rosslblllty.
Some of those who have learned that
Mr. Wileon Intends to keep hands off
among the candidates In the early stages
f the convention at least saw In It a
decision to avoid embarrassment because
or the randldacy of Ms son-in-law, Mr.
M Ailoo.
if the convention sees fit to nominate
Mr. McAdoo without any Intimation
from the President It would put hlra In
ft much belter position with the country
than If Presidential dictation had been
injected to such an extent that the
harge ould be made that Mr. Wilson

famllv. nut there could be nojhlng
prejudicial to tho McAdoo candidacy.

Governor Lowden 111
and Ordered Indoors
Special foTni Sex ad NiwYoek ninii.n.
QHICAGO, Juno 1. Gov. Low
den is ill at the Blackstono
Hotel, due to n cold which ho
contracted while reviewing a
parado yesterday. Dr. Joseph A.
Capp3 has ordered the Governor
to remain quiet and indoors for
at least two days. The physician
said, however, that there was no
cause for alarm over his' condi

Mrs. Lowden has been notified

HOUSE VOTES TO
QUIT SATURDAY
Opposition to Adjournment
Resolution Is Expected in
Senate' To-dny.
SOME PREFER A RECESS
Democrats, Led liy Clark, Make
a Political Play, Feigning1
n Fight on Plan.
Special to Tub Scn and New Tonic li-auM).
Washington, June 1. Adjournment
of Congress next Saturday until tho
first Monday in December virtually
was agreed on to-day by Republican
leaders, who immediately began prepa
rations for putting their plan Into ef
fect. Simultaneously It aroused spec
ulation among both Republicans and
Democrats at tho Capitol, as also
among officials elsewhere, as; to
whether President Wilson will demand
a special session in the summer. No
one had authentic informatjon regard
ing the President's-attltude anil Whlto
House officials refused to comment on
his intentions, although it has been
persistently reported that tho Presi
dent would call a special session be
ginning July 19, '
After agreeing on the programme,
Republican Floor Leader Mondell of
the Houso presented the resolution
for adjournment sine die and without
a record it was adopted and sent to
the Senate, whero Republican leaders
will take final action on It to-morrow.
There Is Borne opposition in the Sen
ate to a sine die adjournment. Some
Senators believe a recess should bo
taken rather than adjournment. They
point out that In existing conditions an.
emergency might easily arise at any
time, and in view of the President's con
dition Congress should bo "able to re
assemble of Its own will and without
having to await a call from the White
House.
Tho Senators believe further tnat i.
would be bad politics for the Repub
licans to pavo tne way lor a can iur u
special session. The President, they
say, could charge them with having
failed to enact legislation to carry out
his recommendations for reducing tho
high cost of living, among other things,
and call them back for the specific pur
pose of considering such matters.
Hero Is tho resolution adopted :
"Resolved by the House of Represen
tatives (the Senate concurring), that
the President of the Senate and Speaker
of the Houso be authorized to close the
present Besslon by adjourning their re
spective Houses on the 5th day of June,
19!0, at 4, o'clock."
A minority of House Democrats
headed by Champ Clark, their floor
leader, opposed the resolution and did
not fight its adoption. Apparently de
sirous of conducting u summer and fall
political campaign of complaint against
the Inactivity of Congress, the minority
Democrats made clear their own record
of seeming opposition to adjournment
and their own vain desire to continue
unceasingly at work.
ASKS ABOUT BRITISH
FLEET IN PACIFIC
r- . r 1 f A 7r..iffi, Don. 1
recates Discussion.
London, June 1. In the course of a
discussion in tho House of Commons on
the naval estimates, an attempt was
made to elicit details of the future naval
policy. Carlyon Bcllalrs, Unionist,
wanted to know whether the fleet would
bo concentrated In home waters, or
whether Great Britain should have a
great Pacific fleet He thought that now
there was no menace In the North Sea
England must have an outlook on thc
Pacific.
Walter Hume Long, First Lord of thc
Admiralty, deprecated a discussion In
Parliament He said whatever state
ments of policy were possible would be
mad,e at the proper time.
It niay be expected that the renewal
of the Anglo-Japanese treaty, which Is
soon to be discussed, will have some
bearing on British naval strength In the
Pacific. Slnco the armistice the United
States, for the nrat time, Is maintaining
a powerful battleship fleet on the Pacific
coast.

Ceru.v, June 1. Communist circles
throughout Germany are prophesying
that the Soviet army will capture
Warsaw before the end of July and
establish a Soviet government in Po
land, In which event there will bo nn
uprising o; German labor and tho
proclamation of a proletariat dictator
ship here. This prognosis Is not
shared by the less radical observers,
but tho prevalent opinion Is that tho
Poles will not be able to regain tho
advantage they won tho first day of
their offensive.
Lithuania's stand is regarded as be
ing decisive, and if sho chooses to Join
her military force with Hussla's it is
thought that sho could tnako the ca
pitulation of Poland inevitable. Po
land's first victories wero won by
troops from German Polish provinces,
it Is declared here, while the northern
secjor was defended bv Inferior sol
diers who were not equipped either
with foreign officers or sufficient sup
pli. The heralded cooperation between the
Rumanians and the Finns having no
fur 'failed to materialize, It Is thought
possible that Gen. Brusiloffs sudden
gains may check the eagernebS of
Poland's neighbors to carry out their
promises and tho Russians are thought
now to bo exerting their utmost to In
timidate any of Poland's prospective
allies. Recent German reenforccment
of her frontier guards In anticipation of
a Russian peril consisted merely of her
returning the regular garrisons which
were summoned away during tho Ruhr
uprising,
I Qeiman
man military authorities are not
expecting :i Russian Invasion, believing
that me Russian operations will bo
handicapped by technical and trans
portation difficulties. A danger Is ad
mitted to exist, but Is regarded ns a
distant eventuality. In discussing It
German officers complain at the En
tente's Interpretation of tho Ver
sailles treaty relative to the upkeep of
the eastern fortresses.
This has' been tho point of divergence
between the Germans and the Allies, the
latter requiring tho reduction of all
fortress armament' to the number of
guns for which placements had been
built before the armistice. The Ger
mans arguo that every modern fortress
has as equipment mobile heavy artillery
which can be mounted In earthworks
In tho zone of the fortress, and which
forms an essential arm of Its defence.
If the Entente disregards theso argu
ments then German fortresses will bt at
the mercy of any assailant equipped
with aircraft. The expectation here Is
that Britain will manngo to inaku pence
with Soviet Russia because of th; dun
I gel' from Bolshevists in Persia and the
CalK.a,Uii Sowe poUtlcal (.indents say
Vrcmier iIoyi, Georeo is ntm. force., ,J
. malJo penCe because the cmpiie Is en
.jttnKCK.j ana because In France the
Government has been unable to rally
any extensive suppoit for nn offensive
against the Soviets.
Poland's present offensive is thought
to be thc last of a long series of expert
mi nts based upon tho advice of milita
rists In France or Great Britain. There
i no question that Poland's plight to
day Is gratifying to most Germans and
that Germany Is the most hostile of the
hostile neighbors the new Stale must
reckon with.

Trade, Is opening headquarters In
London. His trading office will be un

It Is Indicated that the British Cabinet

"The Imperial gold was not the sole
security of the Imperial Russian debts.
We were pledged to good faith to the

is not in fact bankrupt, there Is no
reason why her gold should not be
