?Umlnnal ServU-t! Staff Correspondent.)
Columbus, Ohio,' July 18. ? The
Democratic party will win or lose
this fall upon the single Issue of
the league of nations.
The candidates of the party?Gov.
James M. Cox and Assistant Secretary
of the Navy Franklin D. Roosevelt?
met today in the executive
mansion here. They determined
i upon one general plan of action.
They will go to the voters next
U month with this the substance of
L their appeal:
B| Accept us and the league, or reF
fuse us and get along with the ReL
publicans and without the cove'
( Mr. Roosevelt will resign his as(sistant
secretaryship about the first
of August, or upon the return from
Alaska of Secretary Daniels. Then
he and Gov. Cox, will give practically
their entire time to the business
of persuading the nation?and
particularly the western part of It
?that the league of nations and
continued Democratic control of
governmental affairs are indispensable
to the United States. *
League Dominant Inane.
"The league will be the dominant
issue -Hi this campaign, and I'll
make it so in my speeches." Mr.
Roosevelt told correspondents as
he stood at the side of Gov. Cox
after today's conference.
He then recalled what he termed
Children of Ex-Tammany!
Boss Lose Suit to Prove
Him Incompetent.
Jacksonville. Fla., July 12.?The
temporary injunction restraining
Richard Croker. former Tammany
chief, from conducting the affairs
of his estate, was dissolved this
morning by Circuit Judge E. B. Don'
nell, who ruled that the ex-boss of
^ "* New York was mentally competent
to handle his own financial affairs.
The injunction against Richard
Croker, sr., was granted March 30
L to Croker's sons and daughter.
I A big army of counsel on both
I sides attended the hearing at West
' Palm Beach. Celebrated alienists
( were summoned to pass uporf the
L competency of Richard Croker.
Judge Donnell's decision puts an
end of the suit of the sons and
f daughter to prevent the vast bulk of
the big Croker estate getting into
possession of their step-mother.
Whether an appeal from the decision
of the Circuit Court will be
taken could not be learned today.

terizing the crime as one of "fiendish
brutality." unparalleled In the
criminal history of the State, the
Supreme Court today affirmed the
death sentence of Charles Marshall,
a young Monroe County farmer.
Date of execution was fixed at August
Marshall was convicted of dynamiting
the home of Bob Miller,
shooting four of its inmates, then
setting fire to the debris, cremating
the bodies.
One of the victims was Marshall's
own illegitimate child, the
testimony develop<*d.
The court's decision, read by Associate
Justice Holden. gave full
credence to testimony of Pearl Mty
Miller. 14. sole survivor of fthe
tragedy, who escaped the assassin
by hiding behind a door and then
saw Marshall kill her father, mother
and sisters and the latter'a Illegitimate
child. After the first three
had been killed, the girl said. Marshall
turned his attention to the
crying infant as it crawled across
the floor, slaying it with a blow.
Referring to the girl's story. Justice
Holden declared "she spoke the
truth as it can only be spoken by
a child," and that the jury was
eminently justified in believing she
had been spared that she might reveaf
the perpetrator of "this dastardly
deed that Justice might be
done and the law vindicated."
The court's decision was unanimous.
