One Time Waiter Talks of
'Biff Idea" and How Ho
Developed It.
Hi a Slof Corrttpondtnt cl Tut Sen axd
New Toik Mould.
Boston, July 28. Last August a
thoroughly awake Italian,' who had
coma to America from Parma to
make money and who, casting: tor
chances, had sold fruit on street cor
ners, waited on cheap diners In cheap
restaurants and had clerked lnbrbker
tge olllccs, mado a great discovery.
To-night he Is enjoying every syb
nntic comfort that millions of dollars
can fetch him. His name Is Charles
Ponzl, and whereas he used to have
trouble convincing suspicious pro
prietors of those Belgravlan water
front lodging houses, whero for "60
cents ono is entitled to two feet, of
floor space in a room with thirty
other sleepers, that ho was good for
the four bits, he's doing his sleeping
these nights In lavender silk pajamas
of amazing fineness In a bed that any
collector of real antiques would pay
ft couple of thousand for in a house
in Lexington worth $100,000.
To-day this enterprising young
m:m (It's hard to believe he's 3S
nears old) sat in lofty officer in 27
School street and, with his face con
torted Into a smile that was part
sneer, Jeer and altogether mocking,
ho dealt out to scores of men and
women more than 1200,000 which
these same men and women prior to
last Saturday begged him to take,
that It might bring thorn 50 per cent,
profit in 45 days, for this he had ad- 1
ertised ho could do. " j
Keep Ilia Big Secret.
Pride in his genius as a wizard of
finance prompts Ponzl to reveal the main
dualla of his great Idea, but the real
secret tho enacting clause, so to say
Ik declines to make public at present.
And before wu go any further It must
be understood that thus far he has not
failed to keep all his promises. It is said,
and admitted by the police and the
United States District Attorney, that he
has made a dozen Bostonlans rich be
yond any dreams they ever cherished
before they met and wero convinced
by Ponzl. He has made a millionaire
of himself how many times Is not
known. He soys he's worth 110,000,000
tnd probably he's correct. All those;
men and women who had sufficient
courage to stick It out after giving their
money to ponzl have made handsome
profits and to-day and yesterday, while
hundreds stormed his offices screaming
for their money and threatening him
with death, Ponzl's own clerks and a
hundred eager speculators went In and
out among that panicky throng buy
Ing. from all who would sell, Ponzl's
certificates that promised, over Ponzl's
clear signature, that the bearer of that
yellow paper could demand and receive
from Ponzl one hundred and fifty per
rent, of his Investment In forty-five
days after the Invested money was
placed In Ponzl's hands.
Police Became Curious.
nut last Saturday three thousand per'
fon! clerks, messenger boys, stenog
raphers, staid looking business men,
women with babies In their arms, pugi
lists, dock wallopers, chauffeurs, street
(weepers, mechanics, nurse girls and so
on Indefinitely staged a riot In Pie
lley and Williams court Policemen
became curious and editors sent report
era around to find out what about it
They found that 3,000 men and women
of a dozen nationalities, of every age
from 18 to SO, and from every stage of.
amuence from poverty to early riches,
were clutching bank books and plethoric
rolls of bills In their hands, and they
were all trying to get Into the offices
of the Securities Exchango Company, of
which Charles Ponzl Is the discoverer,
organizer and presiding genius and the
word genius is not used idly.
It Heems hard to believe, but It Is
Perfectly true that In Boston, whero
Yankco caution Is supposed to Infest ono
the moment one breathes Its air, and In
' this year of 1920 when It would be rea
tonable to say that the day of the got
rich quick game was past these 3,000
men and women were fighting to hand
to Charles Ponzl the savings of their
uretlmes a man they had never seen,
of whom they had never heard, whose
propaganda was of the sort that makes
men and women shy off, who refused to
tell what be was doing with the raonoy
or how he hoped to refund It
The newspapers printed the story.
They found nothing wrong with Ponzl
or his scheme. Neither has the United
States Government nor the city of Bos
ton. Neither has any one else.
"It's very simple," says Ponzl. "First,
the psychology of greed. "Then the
Psychology of fear. Men and women are
children a few years older."
As wildly as they fought to give Ponzi
their money, Saturday's three thousand
and several thousand more stormed his
doors on Monday. They redoubled their
fears and their assaults on Tuesday and
the authorities came down. Ponzi called
them In himself; asked them for advice;
kcd them to save the property from
destruction; told the newspaper men to

Reichstag Approves
Agreement at Spa
gERLIN, July 28 (By the Asso
ciated Press). The Reichstag
to-day by an overwhelming ma
jority approved the agreement
mado recently by the Govern
ment at Spa with the representa
tives of the Entente. This vote
constitutes an emphatic approval
of the policy of Chancellor
Fehrenbach and Foreign Minis
ter Simons in tho disarmament
and coal agreements reached
with the Allies.
Tho resolution was presented
jointly by the three coalition par
ties and the Majority Socialists.
It declared that "the Reichstag
duly appreciates tho motives
which actuated tho 'Government
in signing tho agreements at
Spa." Tho resolution was op
posed only by the Nationalists

Police' on Scaling ladders
latter Into Two Clubs
and Arrest 22 Men.
Washington Heights Game
Forcibly. Halted, Saddening
Some Women Players.
Adopting emergency measures when
they found windows and doors barred
agalnst.them, detectives operating un
der tho direction of Inspector James
Boland raised scaling ladders up the
faces of houses in West Thirty-first
arid West Thirty-second streets near
Fifth avenuo at 6 o'clock last night,"
and, while thousands of passersby
looked on made two of the most spec
tacular raids seen In that neighbor
hood since the police began to scorch
'for gambling evidence there.
Both houses were raided last Feb
ruary, when a battle occurred be
tween a detectlvo and Robert Moore,
a lawyer. Mr. Moore was arrested
and later was honorably discharged,
together with the other prisoners. Mr.
Mooro defended the twenty-two pris
oners taken last night when they
wcro arraigned In night court and
they 'were discharged.
About the time the police were acting
in tho West Thirties men of Inspector
Cahalane s staff descended on an apart
ment house In H3d street near Broad
way and arrested a woman who, they
allege, has been conducting her home as
a gathering place for women poker
players. This raid also created excite
ment among the tenants of tho house.
The first raid made by Inspector
Bolands men was on tho Independence
League Club In West Thirty-first street
Lieut Resell led the raiders up the
scaling ladders while the crowd in the
street cheered. When the big Iron hook
of the ladder was thrust through the
glass of a third floor window seven men
were surprised and taken Into custody.
Lieut Kenneally and nve detectives
then started operations on the building
occupied, according to their report, by
the Mutual Independent Democratic
Club. Around from Fifth avenue into
Thirty-second street came a throng of
home going women shoppers and
Once more the scaling ladder hook was
used to smash the window through
which the detectives were to go. On the
third floor they found fifteen men who
they said were playing cards. They took
them and a table, some chairs, and boxes
containing what they described as poker
chips to the West Thirtieth street sta
tion. Charges of keeping and maintain
ing a gambling house were made against
Adolf Abrahams, aged 60, who said he
Hved at 315 West Ninety-ninth street,
end Patrick Burke, aged 58, who gave
his address as 229 West 109th street
Burke, Abrahams and tho twenty
others when arraigned were discharged
by Magistrate Jesse Silverman, who
luled that the police had no evidence
against them.

Paris, July 28. The French Govern
ment this afternoon announced the high
est bid for all the Mumm champagne
properties In the Rhelms district, which
were sequestered at the beginning of the
war in 1914, was 86,000,000 francs, the
highest bidder being the Society Optorg,
which Is composed entirely of French
wine exporters.
Under the conditions of the sale, the
deal will not be closed until August 18,
and between now and that date Amerl-
Lean or British bidders may raise the
offer which was announced to-day. If a
new offer Is considered attractive enough
It may be accepted.
It Is not considered likely that the
Society Optorg's offer will be raised,
howover, as Amerfcan financiers who
were approached last week declared Ihcy
were not Interested In wines, as the
lawmakers In all countries are fickle and
may decide at any time to prohibit the
sale of all alchollc liquors, as they did
In America.

Berlin, July 28. Political and In
dustrial Germany is shaken and the
German press is widely divided on
the speech of Dr. Walter Simons,
Foreign Minister, in tho Reichstag.
Praise of his policy by the Demo
cratic and Independent Socialist
newspapers is counterbalanced by the
mystification, sarcasm and bitterness
expressed by tho conservative press
and political parties.
When tho Reichstag met the mem
bers expected to hear a careful ex
position of Germany's policy at Spa.
Instead they heard a straightforward
analysis of world politics in so far as
Germany Is affected. Meanwhile tho
Reichstag was amazed to behold what
the Frelhcit terms "a sin against tho
Holy Ghost" by Dr. Simons when he
strongly commended the "reconstruc
tive achievements of the Soviet Gov
ernment of Russia."
Members of the nationalist half
Jingo German People's party were
forced to listen to a Minister of their
own coalition rebuke the Relchswchr
for not having scrupulously saluted
tho French flag, after It had been
stolen and returned, at tho French
Embassy In Berlin on July 14. They
heard him passionately remark that
It was better to accept Franco's de
cision to lend a French Minister to
Bavaria than to engage In a conflict.
They heard him criticise the methods
employed when Dr. H. A Dorten,
Separatist leader in the Rhlncland,
was arrested In Wiesbaden recently.
They heard him laud Premier Lloyd
George of Great Britain for tho tact
ho showed at Spa, and express the
hope that the British Premier would
recover speedily from his Indisposi
tion. Dancing With Lloyd George.
"It was a kow-tow to 'La Grande
Nation' I" declares the Pan-German
Deutsche Tageazcitung. "He appears to
feel himself strong enough to dance
with men like Lloyd George and MUler
and," Is the opinion of the Tag, the
organ of the German People's party.
"Undeniably It was a statesmanlike
address," is the verdict of the Tageblatt,
whllo the Freihelt declares that "Dr.
Simons Is a man with an honest will to
speak the truth and he is filled with an
earnest desire to be Just"
German press comment, however, does
not refer to what many persons hero
consider Dr. Slmons's principal Idea and
his open Intimation that the Entente
recognizes that the Polish peace prob
lem cannot be solved without German
What has taken Germany by surprise
Is not the fact that she finds In the Ber
lin Foreign Office a Minister with a wide
vision and a carefully devised plan, but
to find that this Minister is a man who
scorns political tricks and follows his
own policy without sparing tho sensibil
ities of his followers.
"How easy It would have been," writes
the Freiheit, "to ipush an Injured na
tionalist feeling Into prominence In deal
ing with the French flag Incident How
much applause he would hava gained
from the Conservatives If, in referrirfg to
the arrest of Dr. Dorten and to other
incidents, he had laid the blame on the
Intrigues of the Entente.
"But to the pain of our patriots he
renounced all such guiles and curtly ad
mitted Germany's responsibility. He is
neither a diplomatist of the old school
nor a bureaucrat In the notorious Prus
sian sense of tho word.'
Praises Tchiteherln and Itnaita.
Dr. Simons's remarks in the Reichs
tag about Russia has called, forth ex
pressions of scepticism from the entire
ncn-Soclallst press and a demand for
more Information from "the reliable
source" the Foreign Minister referred
to. In connection with Russia Dr.
Simons said:
"I became acquainted with Tchiteherln
(Soviet Foreign Minister) In Brest-r
Lltovsk and I regard htm as an un
usually shrewd man.
"I do not believe It Is to the Interest
of the Soviet republic to devastate Ger
many with murderous. Incendiary hordes.
What the soviet repuouc requires Is
economic support. By overstraining tho
Soviet Idea It robbed Itself of the greater
part of the economic strength which
would mako possible the reestabllshment
of tho destroyed economic order. I am
not one of those who see In Russia
merely chaos. I know from thorough
reports of unbiased. Intelligent men that
a variety of enormous, constructive
labor Is being performed a work which.
In certain respects, wo would do well to
use as a model. (Independent Social

Tho Times says that flvo
members of tho British labor
delegation which recently visited
Russia, Messrs. Purcell, Turner,

unions to adopt direct action as
tho only means to force an
abandonment of tho policy of
"trying to strangle the Soviet

Direct action by tho unions
would lead to nationwide if not

British Government Notifies

London, July 28. Tho British Gov
ernment has decided upon only one,
thing In connection with Archbishop
Munnlx of Melbourne, Austral, com
ing to tho British Isles, and that Is
that ho will not bo allowed to land in
Ireland. It is evident that tho offi
cials have been unable to decide what
they will do should ho not attempt to
land at Quecnstown but did attempt
to disembark at Liverpool.
Archbishop Monnlx has been offi
cially notified that ho will not be al
lowed to go to Ireland, but the Gov
ernment Is taking no steps to. pro
vent him from boarding tho steamship

The official statement from tho
Irish Ofllco yesterday that Archbishop
Manntx would not bo allowed to land
in the British Isles was characterized
today as at least premature.
Dublin. July 28. A requisition has
been signed requiring the Lord Mayor
to summon a special meeting of the
Dublin corporation for the purpose of
conferring the freedom ot the city on
Archbishop Mannlx.
Archbishop Mnhnlx has a cabin re
served for him on the White Star liner
Baltic, sailing on Saturday for Queens
town and Liverpool. It was said at the
office of tho lirie that the Archbishop
probably had obtained a passport In Aus
tralia direct to England. He had asked
for no cancellation of his reservation,
and so far as the company was con
cerned he was free to sail or not, as he
It waB said .at the British,. Consulate
that It was not known there what sort of
a passport the Archbishop had and that
the consulate had not been notified that
he would not be permitted to land in
Ireland or England.
In a statement made at Atlantic City
tho Archbishop said: "Several weeks
ago I booked a passage on the Baltic,
which will sail from New York on Satur
day. 1 Intended to land at Quecnstown.
I also wrote to certain friends there to
request that my landing should not bo
marked by any demonstration of any
kind, and I have assurances from them
that they will try to carry out my wish,
"I do not mean to alter my plans by
reason of threats as to what may happen
to me If I do land In Ireland. Nothing
but physical force will prevent me from
going on board the Baltic at the ap
pointed time next Saturday, July 31."
Rome, July 2S. Strong remonstrances
from Australia on the utterances in the
United States of Archbishop Daniel J.
Mannlx of Melbourne have been received
by the Vatican. The protests state that
the Archbishop's assertions do not repre
sent tho feeling prevalent In Australia,
and ask that some tangible public dec
laration be made In order to protect the
loyalty of the large majority of the
Australian population.
Priority Ruling Gives 650,000

Roanoke, July 28. The Norfolk and

Paws, July 28. The French Gov
ernment has asked tho Comto de
Galard de Bearn, French Charge d'Af
falres In Washington, to ascertain
without delay tho attitude of the
United States toward the proposed
conferenco with tho Soviet Govern
ment as well as tho attitude of Amer
ica toward the Allies assisting Poland
should the armistice negotiations fail
to bring peace.

agreed to confer with the Soviet
Government before consulting Wash

Washington, July 28. The United
States will b5 represented In any allied
oonference held to discuss the Russian
problem by an observer, although this
Government may not take any official
part In a world assemblage of this char
acter. It Is known that the United
States, which has pursued an Indepen
dent policy toward Russia, will be con
sulted before any definite arrangements
are made.
Interpretation placed here on news
despatches concerning the conferences
between Premiers Mlllerand and Lloyd
George Is that the proposals to hold a
world conference have run up against
obstacles which for the moment are In
superabjo. .
The allied position In Its latest note
Is that the Polish question must be In
cluded In any conference between Russia
and the allied Powers, while the Rus
flans had countered with a proposal that
the conference deal only with a general
peace meaning political recognition of
the Soviet Government The situation
accordingly, Is regarded as extremely
critical, demanding tho most delicate
handling to avert ft complete breaK,
which would compel tho allied Powers to
resort to force to bring acceptance of
their position from tho Soviet regime.
Considerable apprehension is felt here
over reports of the speech of German
Foreign Minister Simons to the effect
that Poland must be a bridge botreen
Germany and Bolshevist Russia rather
than a barrier between them, and by re
ports ot tho continued advance ot the
Bolshevik forces In Poland while ne
gotiations concerning the armistice are
In progress.
The final policy which will be adopted
by this Government In dealing with the
situation will be determined by the
President, who has mapped out the pre
vious dealings with Russia. Part of
that policy will have to determine
whether the United States will partici
pate In any European negotiations
which do not havo the League of Na
tions as Its background.
The fundamental feature of the Ameri
can policy has been to refuse recogni
tion to Soviet Russia but at the same
time stand against any dismemberment
of tho Russian Empire. This attitude
maintains tho traditional friendliness
ot the United States toward Russia, and
Is banking on tho final assertion of a
more stable and substantial spirit In
Rii.udan affairs than exists now. The
basis of this policy has been faith In
the ultimate ability of Russia to "come

Senator Likely to Yield to Na

Speaking Tour.
Will Bo Heard Several Times
Hero and May Visit tho
Pacific Coast
By a Stall Correapovdent 0 The Son anl
New Yoik Houi.d.
Marion, Ohio, July 28. The Repub
lican national campaign is being re
modelled. Yielding to the plea of
party leaders, Senator Harding is
known to bo giving serious consider
ation to demands that he carry his
messago to the voters through the
medium of extensive speaking tours.
Tho front porch idea Is not to be
abandoned, but is to fte supplemented
by tho tours, which will cover most
of tho principal cities. Tho nominee
will continue receiving pilgrimages at
his Mount Vernon avenuo residence,
where ho will make many important
addresses. Between visits he will
cover most of the States where there
is hard fighting to be done.
The Senator Is still opposed to the
whirlwind, rear end stumping tour
with a dozen speeches a day and does
not intend to Indulge in that practice.
Tho speaking schedule now being
worked out Is understood to provide
trips as far west as Denver at least;
south to Memphis; to Boston, New
York and the big centres throughout
tho past and West.
It has developed hero In the last few
days that there has been a wide division
o! sentiment among party( leaders re
garding the method of campaign best
suited to the political situation, aam
Penrose has been urging strongly tlut
Senator Harding take to the stump,
knowing well tho nominee's great power
as a campaign speaker. Will H. Hays,
chairman of the National Committee, is
Bald to have been convinced that tne
front porch campaign should be supple
mented by more energetic forms of vottf
getting. Many leaders have expressed
dissatisfaction with the front porch
variety of campaign. They say It is too
Few Pilgrimages Planned.
Some criticism has been heard that tho
party leaders were not lending enthu
siastic support to the front porch cam
paign. It Is said they have made little
tffort to organize Important visiting
delegations. Only two or three political
organizations of consequence havo mado
dates. Many requests havo been re
ceived from somIJpublle organizations
who wish to visit the Senator. Tho
three engagements so far announced are
for the Richland County (Ohio) Harding
nnd, Coolldgo Club, on Saturday next;
Republicans of Wayne county, Ohio, for
ednesday, August 4, and the class In
rchool administration of Ohio State Uni
versity, for Thursday, Auguit 5.
It has taken only a little experience
to demonstrate that to duplicate tho fa
mous McKlnley campaign in Canton
would be next to impossible. In tho
McKlnley days Republicans found little
trouble In getting leave of absence from
their work, railroad trains were fur
nished free for as many delegations as
wished to make the tour nnd thf.re was
no limit to campaign funds.
Many loyal and enthusiastic Republi
can organizations In many parts of the
country have figured out they cannot
ffnrl th Drescnt day high cost of
travel and loss of time with existing
wages to make long tours. For those
and many other reasons Senator Har
ding is said to be willing to forego his
own convenience and visit those who nre
100 per cent for him but cannot come
to Marlon to see or hear him.
Mny Go to Paclflc.
Details of the amended schedules havo
not been worked out completely. It Is
said the party council Is considering
the advisability of extending the tour to
the Pacific coast, but that has not been
determined. Tho senator proDaDiy wm
go as far as Denver to address the
farmers in the agricultural centre at i
Kansas City, invade tne wortnweat ana
possibly attend the big meeting of the
Farmers League In Minnesota; New
York State may see the nominee two or
three times ; and he probably will go to
Boston and other New England cities.
Tho Senator to-day sent to Gov.
Coolldire the following telegram:
"It is heartening to all America to
read your sterling speech or acceptance.
It adds to confidence in the Republican
Duroose to repossess the people with
their Government and It emphasizes my
conviction that as Vice-President you
will be asked to mako your official ser
vices comport with the second highest
place In the Government of tho Re
Awaits Assembly and British

ment a large loan, according to an un

"Financial Adviser Smltn," the des.
patch adds, "has been requested by tho

Datton. Ohio, July 28. Abundant
evidence is at hand to-night some of
H accumulated piecemeal In the ten
days since the White House confer
ence, that Gov. Cox is considerably
apprehensive because of tho under
standing which is taking a firm hold
throughout the country that ho and
President Wilson are "absolutely ns
one with regard to the great issuo of
the League of Nations," so stated by
Mr. Wilson.
The great fear Is that what Is com
ing to be called the "Wilson-Cox" pol
icies will be a serious handicap in the
election, particularly in view of Cox's
own statement on the occasion of the
conference that "what ho promised I
shall, if elected, endeavor with oil my
strength to give."
In consequence an effort is under
way to counteract the 'Impression that
is widespread throughout tho United
States. A definite propaganda Is about
to start In the hope of picturing Cox as
a freo and Independent leader, capable
of doing all his own thinking on im
portant International nnd domestic Issues
nnd entirely oloof from all unpopular In-
The first of this scries of efforts at
public demonstration of Cox Indcpen
dence appeared to-day In nn attempt to
capitalize the conference which the
Democratic nominee held yesterday with
Senator Atlee Pomercne (Ohio). Sena
tor Pomerene, as Is well known, Is one
of the Democratic group that voted for
the Lodge reservations of the treaty.
He Is a member of tho Senate Foreign
Relations Committee, and Is noted for
lack of sympathy with tho Wilson for.
elgn policies.
Cox nnd Pomerene Tnlk on League
It now Is being whispered In quarters
where it will do most good that the real
purpose of tho Cox-Pomerene conference
was a discussion of tho League of No
tlons. The announced subject of discus
sion, the use of the Senate campaign
fund Investigating committee as a chan
nel for making public all party receipts
and disbursements Incidental to tlie
Presidential election, Is being rated as
secondary. Gov. Cox. It Is explained,
wanted to get opinions other than from
Mr. Wilson before taking a League of
Nations stand In his speech of accept
ance. Tho effort to capitalize the Cox-Pomerene
conference In this manner Is
causing considerable interest and not a
fow broad smiles among politicians who
are familiar with the performances of
these two leaders of Ohio Democracy and
also with tho posltloof Gov, Cox In the
treaty fight In tho Senate. About the
only things that Senator Pomerene and
Gov. Cox have In common Is that they
both live In Ohio and belong to the Dem
ocratic party.
It Is permissible, perhaps, to recall
some history. Pomerene first became a
candidate for the United States Senate
In 1910, shortly before the popular elec
tion of Senators went Into effect. His
chief opponent was Edward Hanley of
Dayton, for whom Gov. Cox was cam
paign manager. It was a bitter fight,

Saratoga, July 28. Nathan L. Miller
of Syracuse, former Assoclato Judga
of the Court of Appeals, was recom
mended to-day for Governor by the
Republican organization of tho State
assembled here in unofficial conven
tion. '
Ho won on tho third ballot over a field
of five competitors, getting 595 !4 of.
tho 1,103 votes. The action Uien waa
made unanimous.
United States Senator James W.
Wadsworth, Jr., was recommended for
renomination by a vote of 988 to 97
for Elon Huntington Hooker, former
treasurer of the Progressive National
Committee. Eighteen delegates did not
vote. This recommendation also woo
made unanimous.
Mr. Hooker, who had been a candi
date for Governor, did not permit his
name to go before tho convention for
Governor when ho learned that Mr.
Miller had enough votes to win and
would accept. He did not authorise
the use of his name for Senator. He
mado a statement later that hQwould
not be a candidate for" any nomina
tion in the primaries and would "sup
port the convention's nominee for
Governor in the interest of a Stat
and national victory."
Thompson Qalts Convention.
Senator George F. Thompson of
.Niagara withdrew from the conven
tion as soon as it had passed a reso
lution to make recommendations.
Later he gave out a statement attack
ing Mr. Miller, criticising tho entlr
ticket and declaring he would go into
tho primaries as a' candidate for the
nomination for Governor.
Francis M. Hugo, Secrotary of State,
who contended in the convention for Its
recommendation, after having, been de
feated by Mr. Miller announced ho
would stick by his original intention to
go before the enrolled Republicans In
the primaries. Former Senator Elon R.
Brown, at the Instance of the Jefferson
county delegation, had moved to mako
the Miller recommendation unanimous,
but Hugo declared no one from his
county had any right to speak for him.
The other candidates have acquiesced
cheerfully In the action of the Repub
lican representatives here.
An entire State ticket was recom
mended by the convention. This is the
first time Republicans have taken such
action since the direct primary law went
Into effect In this State. The Democrats
; did .It two years ago and elected their
Aimougn it ma neen hoped that a
recommended ticket would obviate a
primary fight, the prospect Is that
Thompson and Hugo will make a hot
campaign. However, the leaders are
satisfied to-night that they have named
a winning ticket'
"I am mucti plcesed at the action of
the convention," said Senator Wads
worth, as he received the congratula
tions of his friends.
Strong Platform Adopted.
The convention adopted a strong,
comprehensive platform, which backed
up the national position on the League
of Nations, declared prohibition was no
longer a State issue, that no candidate
for State office could modify tho on- I
forcement act, that the 2.75 per cent
beer bill had been rendered of no of-
feet; said tho party believed in honest
enforcement of the law; denounced tho 1
present State primary law and called I
for a return to the State and Judicial
convention with delegates elected at a
After Col. William Hayward, who le
New York's negro regiment In Franco, 1
had flayed the Tammany controlled
Democratic State organization In his I
speech as permanent chairman, and the
platform had been adopted this resolu- i
tlon. offered by Philip Eltlnge of Kings- 1
ton, was adopted:
"This convention, representing the Re
publican party of -the State of New
York, while recognizing the right of any
citizen to enter tho primary to be held
on September 14, believes that the en
rolled voters of the party will welcome
and approve the advice ot this con-
vcntlon ns to candidates for State of
fices and United States Senator.
"Resolved. That tho convention pro
ceed to recommend to tho enrolled vot
ers of tho Republican party and the
Stato of New York a candidate for oaclj
of the following offices."
When tho question was put to the
convention there was a feeble "No,"
here and there, but It was Impossible to
tell where they came from.
