Probably there never waa a conven

considered what he would do and finally
gave out a statement In which he said
no one was authorized to say ths action
of the convention had altered his deter

determination to bo a candldato for Gov
ernor was made fifteen months ago,
long before talk of holding a designa
tion, convention was heard.
"The action to-day when the conven
tion presumed to designate Judge
Miller," he said, "was nothing more
than a straw vote. Other straw votes
which havo been taken have shown that
a majority of the Republican voters
want me,
"Furthermore, the demonstration In

George II. White of Marietta. Ohio,
new chairman of the Democratic Na-

yesterdaj and conferred with him upon
the Intricacies of opening and operating

old and new chairmen strolled from the
Murray Hill Hotel, where they regis

spected the eleventh floor of that build

he will take his place on the quarterdeck
enrly next week. He will retain W. It.

slogan, said Chairman White,
"Gov. Cox Is going before the people
Just the minute he Is notified of his

Sabatcoa Sr-MNas, N. T July 28.
Indorsement of the Republican national
platform, pledges or enthusiastic support
to Harding nnd Coolldge, a declaration
J for a League of' Nations "with such res
I ervattons as shall protect the sovereign
ty and Independence of the United Btatta
and always retain In Congress alone the
power to declare war,'' are contained In
the platform submitted to the unofficial
Republican State Convention to-day.
There Is no prohibition plank. "Prohi
bition Is not a State Issue," the document
' High cost of living, housing, Industrial
relations, reconstruction of Stato gov
ernment, finance and other State Issues
aro considered at length. Discrimina
tion against the Stato of New York by
the Federal Government la alleged and
condemned. The complete document
contains about 8,000 words.
Repeal of the direct primary, laws ns
affectlnc Stato and judicial olticei is
The League 0f Nations plank follows:
"Believing that It Is the paramount
Issue of tho American people to-day, we
favor the League of Nations plan'i ns
contained In the national platform, which
declares for a league with such resurvn
tlons as shall In every way protect the
sovereignty and Independence of the
United fitates and always retain In Con
gress alone the power to declare war,
as opposed to the league plank adopted
hi the Democratic Convention, namely,
a league with such reservations as shall
not in any way impair the Integrity of
tho Instrument brought home by Presi
dent Wilson from Versailles."
Relief From Illifh LlTlns; Coats,
Regarding the high cost of living the
platform says :
"Legislation alone will not cure the
evils from which we are suffering to
day. We emphatically condemn the en
actment of laws without adequate con
sideration of their effect. We pledge
ourselveso Intelligent study of rem
edies, but ,dlsapprovo the practice of
complicating the critical situation by
tho passage of III constructed laws
which, while they may remedy one evil,
aggravate others. The high cost of liv
ing Is dun to many causes, chief of
which Is the depreciation In the pur
chasing power nf tho dollar. There are
many contributing causes, not the least
of which are the wasto and Inefflclencj1
at Washington, resulting In an unneces
sarily enormous debt to be paid by
taxation ; and cessation of production of
necessary articles, making a supply In
adequate to meet the enormous demand,
not only of our own citizens, but of the
whole world."
Other planus arc:
"Housing. The lack of proper hous.
Ing facilities Is a matter of wrlaus con
cern. A Republican Legislature enacted
the so-called rent bills, which nrc giv
Ins needed relief, and have to a certain
extent prevented rent profiteering.
These laws should be continued, and If
necessary etrengthened, especially In
preventing discrimination against fam
ilies with children, but the main prob
lem Is how to provide sufficient housing
"Relief will be found In obtaining
money for the building of houses. We
believe that Income from mortgages on
real estate should bo exempted from tho
State Income tax and that everything
possible should be done to encourage
Investors to lend their money for this
AKrlcntturnl Cooperation.
"Agriculture. When agriculture be
comes an unprofitable occupation In any
nation it is the beginning of the decline
of that nation. Wo believe that the
State should encourage the development
of cooperative organization among the
farmers both for the purpose of collec
tive purchase of all farm supplies and
equipment with adequate protection
against discrimination and for thenur
pose of collective marketing of farm
"We feel that all legislation necessary
to Insure tho prosperity of this pur
suit and to put the farmer on at least
an equal footing with the citizens en
gaged In all other lines of endeavor,
should be passed. The daylight saving
law, while popular In the cities. Is prac
tically unanimously disapproved by the
agricultural population of tho State. It
unquestionably makes the problem of
farm labor and farm production more
acute. We pledge ourselves to an amend
ment of this taw so that It shnll not ap
ply to rural districts while preserving to
the more populous municipalities the
continuance of the law unless they ex
ercise their option to change It.
"Industrial relations and social legis
lation. We urge cooperation between
capital and labor, and to bring this
about, to nllay Industrial unrest, and to
establish harmonious relations, wo de
pend upon the patriotism and the com
mon senso of both employers nnd "em
ployees, especially calling to their at
tention the Interest of the public In gen

"Reconstruction of State Government.
Two years ngo Gov., Smith appointed a
commission known as tho reconstruction
commission. That commission made an

Regarding the recommendation that
the direct primary law be repealed and
that there be a return to the former sys
tern of party nominating conventions, the
platform says:
"We bellevo that the method of se

Insure the performance of party pledges,
"The direct primary principle can he

League of Nations reservations, particu
larly In view of tho unqualified state
ments of both Mr. Wilson and Gov, Cox
after tho White Houso conference and
the vigorous editorials printed In tho Cox
newspapers, tho Dayton .Vwi and the
Springfield Nexca, when the treaty fight
was on In tha Senate.
These editorials, which appeared al
most dally over a period of many
months, fix Gov. Cox's position as
Njuarely back of President Wilson on the
League of Nations. They nro all of the
tame tono, and every time Mr. Wilson
said a word In behalf of the pact Gov,
Cox served as on echo.
"The future oeaco and happiness of
mankind universally Is bound up in the
league," said ah editorial in the Dayton
Netcs on January IS, 1920, which is
typical. "It holds vast enterprises
within Its grasp. It Is limitless In Its
ability to serve nations small and great
and to maintain tho equilibrium of the
world. Out of Its counsels will come.
methods and means for International
stabilization. What a ulty It Is that
America's seut at the first session of the
Supreme Council will be empty at Paris.
Almost Is It tragic."
To show how closo the editorials come
on top of one another and how vigorous
they were In support of the troaty this
editorial Is reproduced from the Dayton
AVirs of the following day, January 16:
"President Wilson la right. Article X.
Is tho very heart of the treaty, nnd if It
Is emasculated or amended so as to rob
It of Its sustaining and protecting In
fluence the league Itself Is nothing more
than a collection of phrases, purposeless
and Impotent."
In .the thick of the fight on February
15 it was said :
"To Senator Lodge and others asso
ciated with him In their efforts to emas
culate the treaty of peace and the
League of Nations thero comes no
thought of obligation to the world.
. . . Lodge and his followers want
Article X. amended because, they seek
to shirk responsibility which civiliza
tion had demanded of all nations."
Rumors nro afloat that In due time
President Wilson In a public statement
will openly surrender his waning control
of the Democratic party and salute Gov.
Cox as the now leader. This, It is said,
is to be one of the high spots of the

requested today to grant a hearing to
tho women of the South on questions of
"State rights and party honor" In a

dates, appeal' to you as the leader of the
Democratic party to grant us a hearing,
not on woman suffrage, which any Btate
can adopt for Itself without changing a
comma of the Federal Constitution, but
on two fundamental Democratic princi
ples, Stato rights and party honor."
The appeal wan made, the message
continued, because' It was proposed to
"bring about the political conscription
of our womanhood and the destruction
of Southern civilization by using Fed.
eral patronage and party pressure to
coerce tho legislators of Tennessee Into
violating their solemn oaths of office and
their State constitution."
Suffragists were boasting, the appeal
said, that Gov. Cox had sent "secret
agents". Into Tennessee, "not only to de
stroy State rights, but to urge legislators
to dishonor their oaths of office."
Gov. Cox was entreated to extend to
Southern women "seeking neither votes
nor offices" fair consideration before
casting his lot with n small group of
pickets whose chosen symbol Is a badge
representing their Jail termB for perse
cuting a Democratic President."
