LONDON, Auir. 27. James Henry
Thomas, one of the most important of
the British labor leaders and secretary
of tht rallwaymen's union, to-day took
up the fight on lH'hulf of Terenco Mac
Rweney, t he lx,rd Mayor of Cork. Mac
Sweney to-day was very weak but con
scious and able to speak. This was the
fifteenth day of his hunger strike.
Mr. Thomas sent a despatch to
Premier Lloyd George, who is In Lu-
erne, Switzerland, In which he said
that the Government must abandon all
hope of conciliation In Ireland and be
prepared to fight out the bitterest civil
war the empire has known unless the
Lord Mayor of Cork Is released.
Although Mr. Thomas refused to
discuss his message to the Premier, It
was understood that It was despatched
after he had talked with leading racm
l.ors of the Cabinet who are now in
London, and that at least one of them,
nd probably the most Important mem.
ber of the Cabinet, agreed that the
Premier ought to act at once.
Mr Thomas In hl telegram said that
Mr. Lloyd George must have made his
statement of last Wednesday before
earning of the King's action In response
to the despatch to him from Redmond
Howard, nephew of the late John Hed
mond, and he expressed the hope that
the Premier would now see the. light.
A similarly bitter message was sent
to the Premier by James O'Grady, a
Labor member ot tho House of Com
mons, and who on behalf of the Premier
opened the negotiations with the Kus
lan Bolthevlkl In Copenhagen for the
release of British prisoners bf war held
!n Russia. Mr. O'Orady, after an ap
peal for mercy for Mr. MacAweney and
s denunciation of the alleged blindness
of tha. Lloyti George Government, said:
"Unless you act, to hell with you and
I ins report from Brixton prison, where
Mr. MacSweney la held, said that one
of his lungs had collapsed and that he
was breathing with great difficulty. An
other report was that he might live an

famiH- remain adamant, ge fusing to

The young Irish girls who have been
picketing the British Consulate since
Inst Monday, marching along the
waterfront on AVest street yester
day afternoon carrying banners
piotestlng against tho Imprison
ment of tho Lord Mayor of
Cork and the detention of Arch
bishop Mannix by tho British Gov
ernment, started what was probably
the first purely political strike of
workmen In the history of the United
States. Almost 200 oilers, stokers and
erglnecrs from the White Star liner
Baltic deserted their posts and swung
into line behind the young women, and
after them came hundreds of long
shoremen who had hoen loading Brit
ish ships on half a dozen piers.
Tho purade and the impromptu
strike grew in enthusiasm and num
bers and culminated last night in a
tremendous burst of enthusiasm and
wild Irish patriotism in a mass meet
ing at the Lexington Opera House, in
Kifty-first street and Lexington ave
nue, called to protest against the Lord
Mayor's imprisonment. At this meet
ing Frank P. Walsh, chairman of the
American Commission on Irish Inde
pendence, declared that 2,000 long
shoremen already had gono out on
strike in behalf of the Irish cause, be
sides the oilers and others from the
British ship Baltic, and that 3,000 more
would leave their poets to-day. Vari
ous speakers aroused tremendous en
thusiasm by shouting that the strikers
never would go back to work until the
British Government freed Lord Mayor
MacSweney and permitted Archbishop
Mannix to land in Ireland.
Irish President" Speaks.
The mass meeting, with about four
thousand Irish men and women crowd
ing the theatre, was one of the wildest
and most enthusiastic the Irish ever
have held In New York. Every five or
ten minutes the audience was brought
to its feet by some vivid denunciation
of Great Britain. The crowd cheered
for ten minutes or longer when sixteen
of the strikers from the Baltic marched
Into the hall with James Lynch, business
agent of the Marine Firemen's Union.
Later the others came to the theatre,
and then came a delegation of the strik
ing longshoremen, each being greeted
with a tremendous burst of cheering.
Besides Mr. Walsh speeches were made
by Eamonn De Valera, President of "the
Irish Republic," and Dudley Field Ma
lone. As a result of the strike, which union
officials called "a tempest in a tea pot,"
It is probable that only two of the
eight transatlantic vessels will be able
to clear port to-day. These two the
Aqultanla of the Cunard Line and the
White Star liner Olympic will be able
to leave mainly because they were
sealed before the agitators appeared,
and the only problem confronting the
steamship officials is that of handling
the passengers' baggage. This, it was
said, would be cared for by the clerical
force ot the two steamship companies.
Call Halt on "Butchery."
The strike came without warning to
the steamship officials. Nearly alt of
the officers of the International Long
shoremen's Association were out of town,
and while the walking delegates all de
clared the strike an outlaw one, many
of them manifested sympathy with the
alms of the strikers. One union dele
gate averred all the men will be back at
work this morning. He said a good
' night's sleep will cause them to forget
I all about Ireland.
When the longshoremen left the piers
for their luncheon at noon they were
confronted by a little group of plainly
clad women marching up and down the
sidewalk in the east side of Eleventh
avenue between Fourteenth and Twenty,
third streets. All of them carried
placards fastened to long sticks. The
one carried by, the leader read: "Long
shoremen, England Is murdering Mac
Sweney while you unload British ships."
Another declared : "Longshoremen 1
Stokers 1 Seamen ! British body snatch
ers are carrying off by force dying and
unconscious patriots to British gaols.
They say 'Let them die.' Are you with
us to stop thla butchery V
Toward the Vnd of the column walked
a little gray haired woman who kept
hurling epithets at the British Govern
ment as she marched. Her banner
stated that the following telegram had
been sent to Premier Lloyd George :

at 9 o'clock to-night, unother at 2
o'clock to-morrow morning, to vote on
whether they will go out immediately
Every indication last night pointed
to a strike. All the foundations that
had been laid for arbitration and ami
cable settlement wore swept away by
tho sudden decision of union leaders
t.i withdraw pledges made to Judge
Julius M. Mayer of the United States
District Court; Llndley M. Garrison,
receiver of the Bystem, and John JT.
Delaney, who has fought in their be
half, as a mediator.
Thoy had promised to submit to the
union the court's proposed arbitration
plan. Yesterday they notified htm that
it was unsatisfactory, because any find
ings would be subject to the court's ap
proval. And theugh this plan will go
before the mass meetings to-night little
hope existed that the men would ap
prove of BT when their officers already
had rejected it.

thoroughly prepared, assured of a suffi
cient nuirtbcr of men to operate Borne
rapid transit sendee, provided with
amplo police protection and in a finan
cial position or predicament In which
it would'pay well "to fight to tho death.''
When the strike Is ended, the company
predicted, the Amalgamated Association
of Street and Electric Railway Em
ployees would cease to exist In Brook
lyn. "If there should be a strike the re
sponsibility will he with those who agi
tato it, and every one will clearly under
stand where to placo the responsibility,"
Judge Mayer declared In a final letter,
transmitted through Mr. Delaney to the
"I authorised the receiver to agree to
arbitration upon the wage question with
only the necessary limitation that the
awards must be such as are capable of

Mr. Delaney bitterly denounced the at
titude of the union leaders last night
when he realised that nothing could
sway them from the. purpose to cripple
Brooklyn's transportation system. He
accused the men of playing false and
concocting a pretext for a strike.

Union men declared that the strike
would go into effect as soon as voted

would be a flagrant violation of exist

days' notice in writing, which has not
vet been given. A strike effective to
morrow, Sunday travel being the
heaviest of the week, would rob Coney
Island, Brighton Beach and other resorts
and outlying districts of service.

Naw Haven, Aug. 27. Gov. Cox at
the close to-night of his first day's
appearance in the East in his stump
ing tour for the Presidency encoun
tered a distinct air of Irish hostility
to the League of Nations. He deliv
ered five speeches, four in this city and
one at Stamford, Conn., from the end
of his car, asserting when opportunity
was afforded1 that he had proved his
charges of the "$15,000,000 Republican
campaign fund" by the evidence pre
sented in his Pittsburg speech.
Apprised by Democratic leader of
this vicinity that Democrats of Irish
sympathy are vigorously opposed to
the Cox-Roosevelt ticket because they
bellevo Its support of the League of
Nations runs contrary to the cause of
Irish freedom, Gov. Cox made a de
termined effort to overcome the hos
tility. He voiced a distinct appeal In
tended to win back the Irish, asserting
that the League of Nations means the
self determination fur all peoples of
"The armistice was signed." Gov. Cox
said, "upon the basis of fourteen points,
the first of which was the self-determination
of nations. The League of Nations
does not abridge the right of any racial
entity to determine Its own destiny In
whatever part of the world it may be.
The League of Nations Intends to estab
lish Internal order and international or
der. It never will be an agency to curb
any such emotions as those which stirred
the American colonists In 1778."
Reiterates Slash. Fond Chare.
The campaign fund charges were dis
cussed at length, but the Democratic
r.bmlneo added nothing new to the asser
tions made In Pittsburg last night when
he presented what he declared was evi
dence that quotas for the collection of
$8,145,000 had been fixed for fifty-one
cities, and that funds collected In other
sections of the country would Increase
the total amount to not less than $15,
000,000. To the statement of Treasurer Cpham
of the Republican National .Committee,
made in Chicago to-day, to tho effect that
the list presented by Gov. Cox was
"phony," the nominee said that the Sen
ate Investigating committee should call
witnesses to determine this.
The greatest attention to the "slush
fund" charges was given In the night
speech, at the Hyperion Theatre, when
the Democratic nominee undertook to
strengthen his case by calling attention
to the fact that there are 10,000 Presi
dential Post Offices In the United
States, allowing the conclusion to be
drawn that the gathering of funds ex
tends to all these communities. He re
iterated his statement that fifty-One
cities alone were called upon to ralso
"This Is not a political question," Cox
declared. "It Is a matter of plain, or

Joke played on him when he got hold
"I renew the charge to-night," he
said. "There were eighty-eight men
at the meeting at which It was pre
pared, and the Senatorial investigating
committee ought to be able from

who will tell the truth."
Gov. Cox called attention to the state

Washington, Aug. 27. Gov. Cox,
Democratic nominee for the Presi
dency, by his Pittsburg speech failed
completely to establish his charges and
branded himself as prone to exaggera
tion and misstatement on matters of
the utmost moment if. his campaign
may be furthered thereby. This is the
consensus here after mature delibera
tion on the "revelations" Gov. Cox
made last night.
Democrats profess to think that
Gov. Cox substantiated what he set
out to prove. This is based solely on
the fact that while the "quotas" shown
by Gov. Cox totalled something more
than $8,000,000. there la nothing like
this sum in the Republican treasury,
snd it is safe to say that there never
In order to raise as much money as
is absolutely necessary the quotas
have been set very much higher than
there is any expectation of collecting.
The statement of Chairman Will H.
Hays of the Republican National Com
mittee that-about $3,000,000 Is counted
upon to run the Hording campaign Is
Pats Cox la Bad Position.
Even more significant than the falllnc
down of his charge that $16,000,000 Is
being raised by Republicans Is the com
plete failure of the Cpx charge that
"sinister" Influences were pouring this
money Into the coffers of the Repub
lican party. On this point Governor Cox
was questioned specifically, and could
not produce proof, nor even name a
single man or corporation of this "sin
ister" or any other variety who has
poured any appreciable amount of
money Into the coffers.
As a result of this failure of the Cox
charges It Is expected that about every
thing he says from now on will be
taken with several grains of salt until
the exact truth can be shown. There
fore the reaction from the Pittsburg
speech is expected confidently to bo a
tremendous Republican asset.
Tho most' damning sentence of the
Cox outgivings about a Republican
"slush fund" was uttered by Gov. Cox
at Rvansvlllc, Ind., where he said':
"I will produce evidence that will con
vict every mother's son of them, the
evidence of a deliberate plot and con
spiracy to buy the Presidency of the
This promised evidence, It was pointed
out here, was not volunteered by the
candidate, and could not be wrung from
him when he was questioned by one of
the Pittsburg audience. The explana
tion given here for Tils failure to pro
duce this proof Is merely that he
couldn't because there is no such thing.
Tarnn Minds la Democratic Fond.
The general view here Is that the only
"mother's son" who was convicted of
anything is Gov. Cox himself, and that
he has convicted himself of stringing to
gether a ht of words with only a dim
Idea that they might be truth, ard that
he was willing to make extravagant and
ridiculous statements in order to try to
get a few votes from the unthinking.
The truth Is that when lists of con
tributors to both campaign funds are
mado public there will not be shown a
single man who has contributed more
than $1,000 to the Republican fund.
The Democratic list Is certain to show
big contributions, as In the past. Many
of the big contributors to the last Demo
cratic fund are now enjoying posts of
honor under the Administration.
The reaction from the failure of the
Cox charges Is expected to be hastened
by the Republican committee being able
to show that in coming Into court, with
their case, that failed, the Democratic
party did not come with clean hands.
The smoke screen raised by the Cox
charges, now dispelled by his failure tal
substantiate them, will be blown cleaPl
away, it Is confidently predicted here,
by Republican action to show the status
of the Democratic war chest. It Is well
known that for a long time before the
conventions an army of clerks was at 1
work for the Democratic committee
seeking money for the campaign from i
every possible source. Chairman' Hays i
spoke of this publicly some tune ago. 1
and offered to prove It He was not j
called upon for proof.

CjncAao.'Aug. 27. Fred W. Upham,
treasurer of the Republican National
Committee, issued a statement to-day
characterizing the charges of Gov. Cor
as rantlngs of "dream money."
Mr. Upham on arriving In Chicago
said that he was prepared to go be
fore the Senate investigating commit
tee Monday and'dlsprove Cox's charges.
He declared tltat the total budget for
national and State purposes was a trifle
In excess of $3,000,000.
"I'm going to testify before tho Sen
atorial committee Monday," said Mr.
Upham, "and I don't want to make
my testimony public In advande. But
I'll say this: The chief stumbling
block for Gov. Cox in his remarkable
financial charges Is that the man
doesn't know the dlffcrenco between a
quota and a budget. A quota is a
dream, a roseate estimate handed to
various leaders. Nobody expects to get
the quota. The idea of quotas origin
ated during the war. War workera
went after quotas. Many of our work,
ers were war workers. They followed
the same Idea in figuring out money
to be raised for the campaign.
"I am not saying now what the total
Republican quota te. That will be
shown and explained to the Senate
committee in good time. I will tell you
now, however, what our total budget
for national and State purposes Is.
It Is a trifle in excess of $3,000,000.
This money Is not dream money.
"We need It to carry on tho campaign.
It Is for expenditures vital and neces
sary for legitimate campaigning. We
hope to raise this budget. We have no
hopes of raising our quotas. The budget
Tammany at last has found a berth
for W. Bourke Cockran as a reward
for the work he did at the Democratic
National Convention at San Francisco.
He will be put up as candidate for
Congress from the Sixteenth 3lstrlct,
taking the place of Thomas F. Smith,
secretary of Tammany Hall, who has
represented that district for the last
Mr. Smith had been designated to
succeed himself, but filed notice with
the Board of Elections yesterday, the
last day for such notice, that he would
decline rcdeslgnation. Desire to return
to the practice of law Is the reason
ho gave for his refusal to stand for re
election. Though a few close friends were
awaro that Mr. Smith wished to retire,
the announcement came as a sharp
surprlso generally, it was stated by
persons high in Tammany councils
that Mr. Smith was acUiated solely by
hfs own wishes In the matter, and tho
same spokesmen professed Ignorance

however, appeared to offer the oppor
tune nichr for Mr. Cockran, and a few
hours later the committee on vacancies
announced that Mr. Cockran had been
designated In Mr. Smith's place. Vari
ous efforts had been made to arrive at
an arrangement whereby proper appre
ciation might he shown Mr. Cockran'
efforts llnoe the convention, but none
appeared to meet with success. One of
such moves was to put him up as the
Democratic candidate for tho Senate
against Senator James W. Wadsworth,
but there was a slip somowhere and
that place finally went to Lieut. -Gov.
Mr. Smith has carried his district by
a big margin In the last two elections,
so it does not appear that Mr. Cockran
will be in any danger of defeat. This
will not be the first time that he has
