Columbus, Ohio, July 15. Gov. Cox
Is drifting rapidly Into open war
fare with the Anti-Saloon League of
the United States. Realizing that a
definite break Is coming, the Demo
cratic nominee for the Presidency is
preparing to accept the inevitable and
cast his fortunes with the wets In the
campaign. An Intense situation is de
veloping sooner than expected, which
will have much to do with the final
result of the election.
The Anti-Saloon League, it became
known to-day, will prepare for the na
tional campaign at a meeting of its
national executive council, to be held
in Columbus on Thursday, July
22. The meeting place will be within
a stone's throw of the State House,
where the Democratic Presidential
nominee Is getting ready the prelim
inary plans for the campaign. At this
conference an effort will be made to
obtain what Richmond P. Hobson.
agent of the league, so far has been
unable to obtain a definite statement
from Cox that he will oppose any
modification of the Volstead law.
The Anti-Saloon League and Cox have
tttn fighting In Ohio for the last eight
year, and there Is every evidence to
night, after discussing the situation in
both camps, that the battle will be ex
tended throughout the nation between
now and November. Gov, Cox. tea4U
by what has happened In the past that
in no circumstances can he hope tor
Anti-Saloon League support, so he Is go
ing to make the best of it and take the
ether end of the stick.
Gov. Cox will direct his fight against
the chiefs of the Anti-Saloon League
rather than against the personnel of Its
members. The particular Individuals
who are In for attack are the Rev. Per
ky A. Baker, president of the organ,
iiatlon. and Wayne B. Wheeler, general
counsel of the league. They will be at
tacked for trying to dictate to the Dem
ocratic party the course It should take
on a moral Issue, an Issue which the
party In Its national convention saw
lit to Ignore. Mr. Wheeler already had
been given to understand that the Cox
forces will be on the warpath against
the league management.
"Tou are a Republican and have no
business trying to dictate the policies of
the Democratic party," ohe of the chief
lieutenants of Gov. Cox told Wheeler in
San Francisco Just after the convention.
nave Fought Eight Tears.
Gov. Cox first became the target of
the Anti-Saloon League eight years ago
when he entered State politics as a can
didate for Governor. It was during his
Hrst term as Governor that the new
Ohio Constitution provided for a liquor
law In which one saloon was permitted
for every thousand inhabitants. This
Cox approved after conferences with
both the wets and drys.
The Rev. Mr. Baker soon afterward,
however, attacked Cox for his stand on
the liquor question, and in answer Cox
charged Baker with being a "liar and a
grafter," charges that attracted the ut
most attention In Ohio and made a sore
which never has been healed.

Commoner Refuses to Forgot

Washington, July 15. Democrats
here to-day were watching with Inter
est and fear tho efforts of Gov. James
M. Cox to "square himself" with Wilt
lam J. Bryan before starting actively
his campaign for tho Presidency.
Recalling Bryan's bitter condemna
tion of Cox and his prohibition stand
before and during the convention,
Democrats were hoping against hope
that Cox might gain the indorsement
of the Nebraskan. Speaking frankly,
however, they admitted that the best
tliey could hope for was that Bryan
would repeat the tactics pursued dur
ing the Parker campaign, when he re
mained regular and nothing more.
According to .'eports here, Cox, taking
heart from Bryan's congratulations o
Franklin D. Roosevelt, has placed sev
eral emissaries In touch with th Com
moner to persuade Mm tht"TrdWbttlon
will be, safe In Cox's hsnds. One of'lheis
emissaries Is said to be former Repre
sentative George White of Ohio, who ts
dry, but at the same time has re-
talned his close friendship with the
Democratic nominee.
That White has received little encour
agement from Bryan so far was Indi
cated In despatches reaching here to
day that White believed Bryan would
be found supporting Cox. He did not
say he had direct word from Bryan to
this effect, however, nor 'did he specify
what support Cox mlgHt expect from
Bryan.
Democrats here to-day recalled Bry
an's once apparently friendly relation
ship with Cox, and they were at a loss
to explain why Bryan turned on the
Democratic nominee after Cox's primary
campaign was well under way. The
story of the coolness as told here to-day
Is the result of a long series of refusals
by Cox to grant Bryan's requests on
prohibition legislation.
Bryan, It Is said, made a trip through
Ohio several years ago In a State pro
hibition campaign and expected Cox to
Introduce him at one of his stops. Cox
did not, taking the attitude that . he
could not attend any faction during
the war.
A few months later Bryan went
through Columbus and suggested that
Cox call a special session of the Legis
lature to ratify the prohibition amend
ment Cox not only did not do this
but did all h could to prevent a special
legislative session and succeeded.
Again when the State prohibition en
forcement code was before the legis
lature drys wanted Cox to make it an
emergency measure which would have
orevented a referendum on It. Cox re
fused this also and the act was beaten
when submitted to the people. It was
recalled also that Cox absolutely refused

Majiion, Ohio, July 15. Senator
Harding expressed to-day the view
that few Republicans will give ad
herence to the third party movement.
He let It be known that the organiza
tion of tho third party at Chicago will
in no way alter the plans of the Re
publicans for the 'campaign. He
said:
The Republican party stands be
fore the country upon a platform
which Is sound and progressive. It
offers Its platform to the voters for
their Judgment, with confidence
that the expression of their judg
ment will result in victory In No
vember. The Republican party this year
represents no one faction within a
party, no special Interest or par
ticular group within our voting
citizenship. Rather It calls upon
all Americans who love America,
who believe in sound progress and
real development, to support It
The laboring man who seeks a
scfuare deal from a political party
will get It from the Republican
party; tho farmer who is looking
for freedom from present irksome
restrictions is promised that free
dom and full consideration of tho
needs of agriculture In the event of
Republican success; the small busi
ness man, who Is suffering from re
stricted credit, high interest rates
and inequitable taxea.may well look
to ,thQ. .Republican, joartycolley.e.
nim rrom tne ouraens piacea upon
him by a Democratic Administra
tion. More than ever the Republican
party this year stands for thi Lln
colnlan principle of "Government of
the people, by the people and for
the people." for the good of all the
people. It Is upon the develop
ment ot that principle and the in
terpretation of our platform that
we shall make our campaign, irre
spective of the plans or the nom
inees of other parties.

When told Senator La'Follette flatly
had declined 'the nomination of the
Third party Senator Harding expressed
gratification.
I think It will be found that few
Republicans are Interested In the Third
party movement," he added.
While Senator Harding did not say
so, political leaders close to mm ex
pressed the view the Third party would
draw largely from elements that sup
ported Wilson In 191. Thus the effect,
as they predict, will be to hurt the
Democratic prospects.

Spa, Belgium. July 15. The allied
and German lenders, but not In formal
conference, went back, to their nego
tiations regarding the coal question to
day and it was confidently predicted in
high circles here to-night that the
Germans would accept the essence of
the allied programme and undertake
to deliver 2,000,000 tons of coal month
ly for six months, In return receiving
substantial concessions.
The allied ultimatum, which was
prepared for delivery to the Gentians
this morning, was sidetracked by the
latter coming forward with counter
proposals, which the Supreme Council
discussed at two meetings to-day.
These proposals had the Indorsement
of Horr Hue. the German miners'
leader, who returned to-day aftercon-
ferrlng with tho miners, and consented
to the proposals .In their name.
The Germans offered to supply the
Allies with 2,000,000 tons ot coal a
month for six months, commencing or)
August 1. The allied answer is that If
b November 1 the Germans have not
delivered 6,000,000 tonB of coal the
Ruhr Basin will be occupied auto
matically On November 15.
The Germans ask for cash payments

Aboard Steam Yacht Victoria (by
Wireless to Associated Press), July 15.
A victory that was not earned, Is the
way Sir Thomas Liptori, owner of the
challenger, summed up to-day's race.
"I am exceedingly sorry that Sham
rock won through a fluke," he said,
"and I would much prefer not to ac
cept the race. I am convinced by my
friends, however, that such a course
would not be for tho beat Interests of
yachting and that it would tend to set
a precedent whereby a premium could J
be placed on faulty or slight construc
tion. "I lost a race myself," he added,
"through a fluke and I know that the
American peoplo sympathized with me.
I can say positively that it is no
pleasure or glory for me to win a
raco through a fluke,
"To-day was a bad day for a race,
with squalls and calms and rain. Reso
lute did exceedingly well and made a
fine showing, but with a good steady
breeze Saturday, I am convinced that
my Shamrock will come out a winner."
Hailed by Crowds.
Sir Thomas viewed the race from tho
steam yacht Victoria, chartered by him
for the occasion. He was host to more
than a hundred guests. Privileged to
pass the lines of guard ships, his yacht
kept close behind the racers as they
made their way up the first half of the

gardlng the Shamrock his guests heard
him use all day, when he said, half
aloud, "Too bad."
He viewed tne race for a considerable
part sending on the navigating bridge
alongside of Capt. Jalrrc, master of the
Victoria. As the yachts neared 'the turn
ing point his prevailing good nature had
returned completely. He observed his
yacht holding second place with ns much
cheerfulness as If the positions, were re
versed. Sorry for Accident.
He was chatting with some of his
guests when the accident which put the
defender out of commission occurred.
His attention was called to the flutter
ing mainsail of the Resolute, but he
only remarked In an anxious voice: (
'Walt a moment, i oon i neiieva it ia
serious.'
As minutes elapsed, however, and
Shamrock crept up and passed the dlo
abled Resolute, he turned and sals:
"I am sorry: I hoped that they could
fix It. I can't take a victory like that."
When It was pointed out to him. how

vos '
Tha skill of John A. Gallatlan, chief
of detectives of Union county. New
Jersey, in preserving finger prints and
his persistence In sending copies of
them to prisons throughout the United
States at Intervals for two years re
sulted yesterday In the solution of the
mystery surrounding the murder In
August 22, 1913, of Miss Edith L.
Janny and Edward Kupfcr of Perth
Amboy, N. J. Charles Perthand and
Howard V. Lamble, alias Georgo Bran
don, convicts in Auburn prison, con
fessed yesterday that they snot nnd
killed the girl and her companion as
they were riding In an automobile
through Rahway N. J.
Chief Gallatlan accused Perthand and
Lamble, who were sent to Auburn In
January, 1920, and August, 1918. respec
tively, after the prison authorities had
Identified their finger prints with finger
prints forwarded by the detective, and
after they had been Identified by Dr.
yic Moore of Rahway, before whose
homo the prisoners paused while they
threw Kupfer's body from the car. Their
confession, however, was caused almost
entirely by the finger prints. Detective
Gallatlan found many prints In and
abcut the car and carefully preserved
them, sending out copies every few
n:onths to various prisons and asking
that they be compared with the prints of
prisoners recently admitted.
The signed confession Is a document
five pages long, and" was brought ' to
Valter L. Hatfield, Union county prose
cutor, by Detective Gallatlan yesterday.
The prosecutor said he would attempt
to obtain the release of Perthand and
Lamble as soon as possible by applying
for executive clemency, so they may
be extradited to Union county and placed
on trial for the murder. The prosecutor
and his assistants believe that the only
polnt needed to make a perfect case ,
against Perthand and Lamble Is the
Identity and location of a huckster who,
the convicts confessed, gave them a lift
after they had abandoned Kupfer's auto
mobile. Perthand and Lamble confessed that
on the night of the murder they had
gone to Perth Amboy to hold up em
ployees of tho DU Pont plant there, but
had decided not to make the attempt
and started walking toward Rahway.
They met the automoblje driven by
Kupter, with Miss Janny a passenger,
and asked for a ride. They climbed
Into the machine and after going a short
distance drew revolvers and demanded
money. Kupfer refused and tried to
shove Perthahd from the car. The two
men then fired, they said, and after
having killed both Kupfer and the young
woman tossed their bodies Into the road.
Perthand ls now serving a sentence
for carrying conccalod weapons and
Lamble for stealing an automobile. Both '
were sentenced from Manhattan. 1

Capt. Adams Says New Metal

NOT GOING TO SHIPYARD
Crew- - of ' DefendeEegi'etfnl
Over. Accident, but Confi
dent of Final Victory.
Capt Charles Francis Adams II.,
skipper of the Resolute, said last night
that the yacht would be repaired
ln time to enter the second race to
morrow. He declared that he wa
deeply disappointed at tho accident,
which occurredat a time when Reso
lute was leading tho Shamrock and
apparently was a sure winner of the
first race.
Captain Adams said that the hal
yards which hoist ur.d control the gaff
at the throat broke at the hoisilng
winch below deck, and the gait fell.
Certain difficulties which could not be
overcome prevented the stretching ot a
new halyard, and the Resolute there
fore forfeited the race. The wooden
gaff which caused the trouble 'was re
moved when repairs on the Resolute
were begun, and a new metal gaff was
put aboard the yacht. The wooden
gaff, it was, reported, was Injured so i
that it was not possible to repair it.
Capt. Adams said, however, that It
would not be necessary to- tow the
Resolute to a yard for repairs.
"There Is no doubt." he said, "that
we will be able to start Saturday. The
crew of the Resolute did excellent work,
and we are confident that we will win
the next race."
Nat Herrcshoff, designer and builder
of the Resolute, and Robert W. Em
mons, managing qwner of the yacht,
visited the tender Montauk, where
Capt. Adams and his crew are quar.
tered during the races. They had noth
ing to add to the statement made by
Capt Adams. '.Mr. Herreshoff and Capt.
Adams, it wap said, will make a thor-
ough examination of the Resolute to
day to determine If any repairs aro
necessary other than the placing of the
new gaff.
The men of tho Reaolute's crew did
not appear to be downhearted over their
defeat by Shamrock IV. They were
much more cheerful than their skipper.
They were tremendously optimistic over
the prospect of winning the next race
to-morrow, and to a man they declared
that their boat would win the next and
all the other races that are sailed. Most
of the Resolute's crew went overboard
from the Montauk for a swim after the
yacht had' been made fast for the night
Shamrock IV. was anchored near the
Resolute fast night, and members of her
crew who came ashore to cable the re
sult of the race to friends and relatives
Ir England and Ireland said that every
body on board the challenger was happy
and expected to "lift" tho cup. They
.riar,A. ho-vr. that thev wished the
i.,0lute had not met with an accident,
thc contest uould have been a real
race. Capt. W. P. Burton, skipper of
hc Shamrocki couM not be rcacIud for
a statement.

Tho Resolute, until tho moment
when her throat halyards parted,
dropping her gaff and the billowy
mass of her great mainsail In a moun
tain of canvas upon her deck, had
given a splendid account of herself.
Confidence In her quality and ln tho
masterfulness of her handling had

every fickle shift in weather condi
tions, irom deluges of rain, amid
flashing lightning and booming thun
der, to bursts of hesitant sunshine and
then back again to tropical showers;
through three hours of actual racing,
during which the cup rivals In turn
were wallowing almost in a dead calm
and then driving through squalls of
wind and rain at a ten knot clip, tha
Resolute had outfooted and outpointed
the Ulster challenger, and her Boston
skipper seemingly had taken the
measure of Capt William P. Burton,
who Is called the ablest handler of
British racing craft.
Crippled but Still Game.
', It looked as though the Resolute hsd
the first race of the scries well ln hand.
Onlookers had btgun to comment : "Well,
it's the same old story the challenger
is always a marvel until she has to meet
the defender."
In. a reach to wlnlward southwest by
south down along the Jersey coast to a
point off Deal, where the stakeboat was
moored, It had been slow going much
of the way. Nearly three hours had
been consumed before turning the mark
for the reach or the run home. The
gentle winds had been fluky, treacherous
and shifty. But now as th? Herreshoff
boat heared the mark the breeze fresh
ened briskly. As she headed for It on
the starboard tack she was heeled over
prettily, but not perilously, pointing Into
the teeth of the first really good blow
of the day. Her lee rail was awash and
broad windrows of spume rolled away
from her clipper bows. She had ,left
the Shamrock a mile in her wake, 'but
both now were sprinting along at a pace
not less than twelve miles an hour
Within two minutes more the Ameri
can yacht would have rounded the mark
triumphantly In the lead. Her partisans
would have been slapping one another
on the back and asking what in the
world the Resolute wanted with the
newly seven minute time allowance
that had been awarded to her. But Just
at that moment the casualty and It
was little less than a tragedy hap
pened which put the fleet white craft
out of the running.
Mass of Canvn Falls.
Thousands of marine glasses were rir
cted upon the Resolute. Human throats
and the raucous steam throats of hun
dreds of vessels were ready to loose the
pa?an of Jubilee as she should come
absut and shape her course for the fast
run home.
What they saw was this: The tower
ln mass of canvas bowed a little lower
to the squall, then her long, taper gaff
wax seen to drop, while the mainsail, un
til then flattened like Ivory, crumpled like
crepe paper and came tumbling all ln a
hopeless heap with the useless spars.

Aboard the huge fleet of heterogeneous
sightseeing craft that stretched out fan
like a mile or more behind the racern,
men who had prepared to cheer, groaned.
It was hard to lose In that way, but tha
salt sea philosophers, too. were there,
ready to suggest the obvious truism that
sound gear and spars are as much a
part of the racing game as are skilful
end crafty seamanship.
Adams and the Resolute were game.
Crippled as she was. limping like a
stricken bird, ready hands had tackled
