Spa, Belgium (by Telephone to Lon
ion), July 14. Tho real crisis in the
Spa conference has been reached, and
unless the German delegates when
they meet tho Allied Premiers to
morrow accept tho demand of tho
Allies for 2,000,000 tons of coal a
month they will bo notified that the
occupation of tho Ruhr Basin will be
gin on Friday. It was reported to
night that the Allies were considering
occupation of Hamburg and Bremen
instead of tho coal basin.
On the other hand. It the German
delegates, giving way to tho strong
pressure which Is being brought to
bear on them, meet tho demands of
tho Allies they will b told thao th En
tente will take steps for the improve
ment of food' and housing conditions
in tho coal mining regions. Tho United
States will be Invited to Join in the
occupation of German territory vlt it
is found necessary.
This was decided-upon by the Su
preme Council in a two hours' session
hero to-day. v Tho meeting was at
tended by Marshal Foch and Gen.
Magllnse, chief of staff of the Belgian
army. Tho ultlrhatum will be commu
nicated to the Germans In tho meeting
to-morrow, at which Field Marshal Sir
Henry Wilson also will bo present.
Tho Germans will bo reminded once
more that they destroyed tho French
coal fields and that they are to-day in
a better situation with regard to coat
than are either France or Italy.
At a formal meeting of tho German
Cabinet, with all the delegation's ex
perts, tho latter advised tho Cabinet
not to recede from the position they
had taken.
It was reported here to-night that
there was some chance for the moder
ate clement In tho German Cabinet to
force a compromise, and that this
might open tho way for an acceptance
of the Allies' terms.
N'o statement was made to the press
after the meeting of the Supreme
Council this afternoon. However, It
was understood that tho Italians took
a vigorous stand against military oc
cupation of the Ruhr. Basin.

flay of tense emotions among the dele

After a lapse pt soventeen years the
International yacht races for Amer
ica's Cup will bo resumed to-day,
when Shamrock IV., owned by Sir
Thomas Llpton, meets tho defender
Resoluto off Sandy Hook.
To win tho cup Shamrock IV. must
take threo races out df five, and the
race committee announced last 'night
that to-day's, Saturday's and Tues
day's races would bo held as sched
ulcd, but that after tho last named
date the yachts would race every day
This rule, however, Is subject to modi
fication at tho request of either skip
por, who will havo the privilege of re
questing a day's rest between races.
Tho final decision will rest with the
A special weather forfceast made by
the Weather Bureau late last night
for tho vicinity of Sandy Hook stated
that there would be westerly and
moderato winds, possibly a little fresh.
Tho weather will be unsettled, with
showers and possible thunder squalls.
If there Is any change from this pre
diction the chango probably will be
for better yachting weather.
Many thousand persons are ex
pected to witness tho nice, although
the refusal of the Government au
thorities to lift the wartlmo restric
tions as to the amount qf life saving
apparatus to bo carried by ships is
expected to cut the attendance.
Airplanes Will Follow Race.
Many private yachts rfnd excursion
boats, however, will carry passengers
to tho course and a number of air
planes also will hover abovo the rac
ing yachts. Sir Thomas Llpton will
watch the race from his yacht Vic
toria, and Franklin D. Roosevelt, As
sistant Secretary of the Navy and
Democratic nomlneo for Vice-Presi
dent, will witness it from a destroyer.
Sir Auckland Geddes, British Ambas
sador, will be Sir Thomas Llpton's
guest aboard tho Victoria.
Both the challenger and the defender
rode at anchor last night In the horse
shoe at ijandy Hook, , and no damago
as done to either of them by the storm
which kicked up the waves off tho Hook.
Light winds during the day caused both
skippers to abandon plans for final test
spins, but It was said on both crafts last
night that they are in fine shape for the
first of the series of races. The crew of
the Shamrock was kept busy by Capt
William P. Burton bending on her origi
nal mainsail. This Is the cut of canvas
that will be used in the race to-day, ac
cording to Charles E. Nicholson, de
signer of Shamrock, who besides having
startled American yachtsmen by Sham
rock's daring and original lines also has
been experimenting with sails strange to
nautical lore.
' The crew of the Resolute, under the
direction of Capt, Charles Francis
Adams, were Just as busy as tho tars of
Shamrock, putting finishing touches to
the sloop which will defend the Cup for
which the racers will compete. CaptJ
"erroneous- reports" that there was
something wrong with Resolute's plating.
"Her bronze plates are In as fine shape
to-day as they were when they were put
on six years ago," he said.
Race Sn Thirty Mile Coarse.
The start of to-day's raco Is scheduled
to bo made at noon from the Ambrose
Channel Lightship. The course will be
thirty miles In length, but.lt will not be
announced until Just before the start of
the yachts. Tho rules call for a wind
ward and leeward course for the first,
third and fifth races, tho second nnd
fourth to be over a triangular course.
At the request of Sir Thomas Llpton the
raco committee has appointed the Cor
sair, J. P. Morgan's yacht, as guldeboat.
The Corsair will take up a position half
way between the starting and turning
points, moving rorwarct at me starting
signal and pausing a short distance
beyond the turning mark. The purpose
of a guide boat. It was explained. Is to
overcome the possibility of low visibility
at a turning point in case of fog.
Future generations probably will refer
to the contest between Shamrock TV.
nnd Resolute as the "mystery race,"
largely because of the fact that It is the
first time the race will be sailed without
the exact time allowance being known
to the contending yachts or to the gen
oral public, and also becauso of the
mystery that surrounds the actual sail
ing powers of Shamrock IV. The best
estimate obtainable last night of the
time allowance was 7 minutes and 1 sec
ond, that being the tlmo that Resolute
In allowed because of the difference In
measurements and sail carrying power.
It Is probable, however, mat this al
lowance will have been reduced before
the yachts answer the starting signal.

Dr. John tu Tlldsley, Associate Su

of high Bchools, whoso stand against
disloyalty in tho schools has made
him the target of attacks by the
teachers' union, was ousted yesterday
by the Board of Education. By a
votet of four to two tho Tammany
board gave his position to Edgar Dubs
Shlmcr, who under tho law can sorvo
only three years of the six year .term,
as he is now 67 yoars of ngc. Mr.
Shlmer is a district superintendent.
The board listoned politely to Will

Schools; Maurice J. McCarthy and
Mrs. George Alexander of theAmcrl
can Legion, Richard M. Hurd of tho
American Defenco Society, and a rep
resentative of the United Parents'
L&aguo all plead for the retention of
Dr. Tlldsley. Then, with businesslike
precision, Mr. Shlmcr was elected on
tho first ballot
A scattered patter of applause, fol
lowed by hisses and at least one cry of
'Shtmel" greeted the announcement of
the vote.
Arthur S. Somers, former president
of the board, who had nominated Dr.
Tlldsley In an address In which he laid
stress on his years of Intelligent ser
vice and his efforts to "eradicate the
cancer of sodltbn" In the schools, arose
In his place and said :
Mr. President, I have known people
to applaud an execution before this."
Dr. Tlldsley, sitting at hts desks on the
fifth floor of tho building, received the
news calmly.
"Orders From Hylnn.''
I was told the board would not op
pose public sentiment as expressed by
all the papers nnd by vatlous civic
organizations, but somehow I knew this
would happen," he said. "The members
of the board have stated they had no
reason for not reelecting me. This sim
ply means that I nm out after twenty
two years' service, without" a reason.
Desplto their statement there la a rea

"The public were with mo. The pa
pers were with me. This shows that
public opinion matters not a hit to the
board. Tho public has no say on the
Board of Education. After twenty-five
years of trying to get tho schools out of
politics, they are now back In It."
The board acted on the election with
machine-tike smoothness. As soon as It
was called to order Mr. Somers moved
that the election be put over to Sep
tember owing to tho absence of Mrs.
Emma L. Murray. Mrs. Murray Is
known to have fayored Dr. Tlldsley.
Although the matter previously had
been postponed owing to tho absence of.

After expressing regret that the board
denied to one member a courtesy It had'
extended to another Mr. Somers pro

teacher, principal and sunerlntcndent.
He pralse'd his fearlessness In carrying
out his duty of suppressing disloyalty.

that his "blood had gone cold In reading

the 'propaganda" had come from. Dr.
John Ferguson seconded the nomination,
remarKing mat it was a lunny tiling tho
papers an ravorea Dr. Tlldsley.
Superintendent Ettlnger. although
praising Mr. Shlmer, strongly urged the
retention of Dr. Tlldsley as his associate.
He pointed out that no cause had been
given by any member of the board why
Dr. Tlldsley should not be' retained.
One speaker for tho public who asked
Mr. Ryan If ho had any specific objec

Annlng S. Prall, president of tho board.
"I don't think members of the board
should be heckled," he said.

Tho labor planks were compared
with the demands mado by labor, with
the result that the committee found
the Democratic platform "more nearly
approximates the desired declara

planks. But to tho surprlso of many
and to the keen disappointment of

Dhaslzcd the point that "failure of the
platform to indorse the Injunctions so
cured through tho efforts of Attorney
General Palmer In the miners' case may
fairly bo assumed to constitute repu

The labor committee complained of
"vagueness" and "uncertainty as to
what the platform means" In tho Demo

lockouts and frankly disapproves of
the Democratic policy which "Implies
methods In the settlement of disputes In
Government employment"
"This cannot bo approved as a gen
eral statement of Government policy,"
tho labor committee said.
Another criticism offered by labor
against the Democratic platform Is that
"It ls silent on the proposal" to Invest!
gate profits and prices and "offers no
substitute dealing constructively with
profiteering," but merely proposes pun

Tho labor committee in submitting Its
conclusions on their review of the two
platforms said:
"In summarizing It Is but fair to say
that the Democratic platform marks a

platform of the Republican party. In

The report stresses the point that
"labor ls not partisan to any political
party," but Is "partisan to principles of

"It undertakes neither to dictate nor

candidates they should vote, but it would
be a palpable dereliction of duty did we

His own attitude the Senator made
just as plain as possible by declaring
ho "earnestly desired that ratification

that he "didn't care a fig" whether

Senator Harding' Statement.
Here is tho statement:
My patience Is sorely tested some-
times over the persistent misrepre
sentations of the Republican party,
Its State Governors and Legislatures
in this matter of woman's surf rage.
Whether it emanates from mere mis
chief makers or from partisan de
sires, I cannot help resenting It We
must Insist on having fair treatment
of the party without whose persistent
support this great reform would
never have had a chance of success.
A Republican Senate and a Re
publican Houso submitted .the con
stitutional amendmont for equal suf
frage. A Democratic Senate had
previously refused to submit it
Twenty-nlno Republican and six
Dcmocratlo States have ratified it
Five Democratic States have re
jected the ratification resolution and
another, Louisiana, has Just refused
to give It consideration.
One Republican State Just one
Delaware has rejected It The first
nine States to ratify were Republican
States. When, in 1919, the Republi
can Senate finally mustered tho
necessary majority to submit the
amendment, there were thlrcy-slx Re
publican and only twenty Democratic
Senators voting for it, but there were
seventeen Democratic and only eight
Republican Senators voting against
Whether in Senate or House, In
Congress or State Legislature, the
record shows thnt the Republicans
have been tho persistent and effective
supporters of tilts measure. In such
circumstances circumstances that
are thoroughly familiar to everybody
It Is simply amazing that Demo
cratic: managers should now have the
audacity to be assuming that they
ere the friends on whom tho cause
must depend If It Is to succeed.
For myself and for the Republican
party, I earnestly desire that ratifica
tion may bo accomplished in time to
give the whole body i American
women the ballot In. next November.
I am wearied with, efforts to make
partisan ady&r.tage out of this situa
tion. I hope there will bo ratifica
tion, and I don't care a fig whether It
ls secured through a Republican or a
Democratic State.
I will rejoice if North Carolina will
do it or If Tennessee will do it Just
ns I would rejoice it a Republican
State did It
There will be glory enough for the
Republican party, no matter whether
the thirty-sixth State Is Republican
or not If any word of mino could
possibly be influential with any
Republicans in the North Carolina
Legislature, or In the Tennessee
Legislature, that word would bo vote
for ratification, without worry about

Sunday Conference Arouses
Speculation as to Ecal

Pot Issue

Washington, July 14. Interest In
vovery other phase of the Democratic
campaign Is rapidly paling before the
Sunday conference between Woodrow
Wilson, President of the United
States, and James M. Cox, somewhat
oxpectant of succeeding to the title,
with Franklin D. Roosevelt standing
by to catch tho fainting form of
whichever of tho friendly conferees
first succumbs.
Tho report gained currency here to
day, presumably 'from the source of
Democratic Inspiration for tho lost
seven years, that Mr. Wilson would
toll unremittingly for the success of
the Democratlo nominee for the Presi
dency. This pleasant premise Is be
ing taken with several grains of salt
by other Democratic leaders hero,
however, who aro hard headed enough
to want to- await the outcome of the
Sunday conference of tho President
and the Ohio Governor.
A great deal of comment was caused
here to-day toy the publication In Ad-
ratlon organs of the nlaln lndlca-
tlort. tint' Mr. Cox Is supposed to look
upon Mr. Wilson as the undisputed
leader of tho Democratic Dartv and
that ho will kowtow to Mr. Wilson's
views In their conference. Cox people
look on this as somewhat ridiculous In
view of the fact that the Governor has
told Mr. Wilson, not directly but un
mistakably, that ,ho Is his own boss in
the campaign. On ton of that he has
given'' strong Indications of a leaning
toward kicking Mr. Wilson's paramount
Issue, the League of Nations, unamended
and unreserved, Into the discard.
The subtle signs of discord among
the Democrats continue to pile up. Those
who are regarded generally and more
or less correctly as getting their facts.

are laying stress -to-day on the asser

Wilson was eagerly sought by Cox. The

Wall Street docs not think as much
of Cox's chances of winning the Presi

as lt did a week ago. Announcement
was made yesterday by Richard C.

that the odds against Cox had length

a prominent Stock Exchange firm had
given him $50,000 to wager In whole

also that the representative of another
