While detectives were attempting to find out how robbers last nTght gained access to a safe in one of the su perior court rooms here and es caped with $22,000, the general public was wondering why the . robbers did not take $20,000 more which was there.

The robbers apparently gained entrance to the court room through adjoining offices, using pass keys, and opened the safe by means of the combination. The court room is immediately above detective headquarters where men were on duty all night. The rob bery -was discovered whe court was opened this mornlns.

Athletic advancement was demonstrated today by the wide dis tribution of honors in the third day's contests m tne seventn Olympiad. For the first time American athletes failed to win one of the six point scor ing places when all four who qualified for the 5,000 metre race failed to fin ish. In all the other finals and quali fying rounds today, however, the Americans were placed, in several cases after sensational performances against strong competition. R. W. Landon of the New York A. C. won the high jump with a new Olympic record of 1.93 metres although it was announced he had made 1.94 metres until a sag of the bar was re-measured. Three other Americans placed. " In the elimination for finalists in the shot put a..id broad jump, two Ajneri cans qualified in each, although hard luck lnterferred with their perfor mances in the Jatter event. The shot putters, misunderstanding' French of ficials, put the shot a long time before discovering it was just a warm up and later some of them did not do so well as in the practice. In the broad jump, the negro, Sel Butler of Dubuque college, American record holder, puhed a tendon in his second Jump and could not qualify. Three Americans also qualified In, the 110 metres hurdles. The most sensational performance was that of the half-milers In the 800 metres final which Earl Eby of the Chicago A. A. almost won, and in which Lieutenant D. M. Scott, U. S. A, and A. B. Sprott of the Los Angeles A C, finished fifth and sixth after a ter rific pace. A. Ci.

Americans admitted Rudd was not quite in his best form, although he was game to the finish collapsing as did Thomas Campbell of Yale and fin ishing a most sensational climax. The latter's condition was serious for a few minutes, due to muscle and heart spasms but he was all right later. The American tug of war team was quickly outpulled by the English team but had a chance for re-entry In case England wins, under the rule which permits all teams defeated by the win ner to contest for second place. o FATHER MANNIX REFUSES OFFER LONDON.

LEADERS FA SEPARATE PEACE PACT WITH HUNS Democratic Candidate Flays Harding and Promises League Endorsement If Elected In November Republican A. P. Leased Wire- COLUMBUS. Ohio, Aug. 17 In ad dressing the Ohio democratic conven tion today. Governor Cox flayed Sena tor Harding, republican nominee, as "reactionary," denounced what he termed Mr. Harding's plan for a sep arate peace with Germany but said that the democratic position on the league of nations reservations was not "unbending." "The- San Francisco platform," he said, "givesus the right to enter the league on terms that need no defense. Our position is not unbending. We claim that we can accept anything (in reservations) that interprets, that calls attention to the limitations of our con stitution, that calls attention of the other nations that will go thus far and no further." The league issue was featured by Governor Cox and also in addresses of Secretary Baker and Senator Pomerene of Ohio. ' "Perfectly perfidous act," and ''dis honorable deed" were terms applied by Governor Cox to the separate peace proposal as the convention gave him ovation after ovation. The separate proposal, he declared, " will remain in the public mind." "This after all," he continued, "is the cruix of the situa tion. The reactionary candidate prom ises you nothing but a proposal, which at its best, promises nothing but months and possibly years of delay. On the other hand, we promise that after March 4, with the least amount of conversation possible we will enter the league." Denounces Republican He denounced the republican argu ment that the league wduld Increase probability of war. Denying also that fhe league could order American soldiers overseas. Gov ernor Cox continued: "The republican leaders, in declar ing that four or five potentates over seas can order our soldiers anywhere, are speaking a deliberate and wilful un truth." Governor Cox reiterated thatv con gress only may declare war and assert ed what the republican reactionary leaders contend would require a consti tutional amendment. Calls Plan Monstrous After "vigilent study" of Senatof Harding's acceptance address. Gover nor said he found the statement that "has staggered the sensibilities of the world the unthinkable, the mon strous proposal for a separate peace with Germany." "Now that our army is dishanded and the military strength of the allies scat tered," the governor said, "'he would destroy that pact (the league) and en ter into a new covenant." "I give you this assurance," he con tinued, that this dishonorable deed will not be perpetrated, first, because War ren C. Harding will not have a chance to do it and. second, that I will not in sult two million American soldiers by doing it myself." Governor Cox said he was indebted to the opposition for furnishing cam paign issues. The governor weighed the records of himself and Senator Harding in Ohio, especially in the fight for a new state constitution. His next address will be made Thurs day night at South Bend, IntL, before the state Democratic Editorial asso ciation. TENNESSEE HOUSE T VOTE ON E NASHVILLE, Tenn.. Aug. 17. Un expected adjournment of the Tennessee house after three hours' debate pre vented final action on suffrage. Suffrage opponents moved for ad journment until tomorrow on the plea that members should have more time to deliberate. The house fairly seethed with excitement. Efforts to hold the body in session, however, were un availing and the motion carried, 63 to 44. Opposition leaders said the vote was a virtually correct indication of senti ment on ratification. The suffragists declared no importance should be at tached to it. A final vote tomorrow was regarded as almost certain. Some members took exception to the presence of scores of opposing work ers on the floor. A motion that it be cleared brought a protest. Debate on the motion that the house concur in the action of the senate in ratifying centered largely on the con tention that this legislature had no right to act on ratification as a clause of the state constitution provides that a legislature, to pass on a proposed amendment, must have been elected prior to the submission of the amend ment by congress. Speaker Walker, opposition leader, read a letter from W. L. Frierson, so licitor general of the United States, saying he had not advised any one it would be "entirely proper for the pres ent legislature to act." A recent ruling by the state attorney general that a mapority vote of the members present, if there was a quo rum, and not the constitutional ma jority of 50 of the 99 members of the house would be sufficient. Great interest was displayed tonight in the action of the North Carolina senate in deferring considering until 1921. Suffragists had been encour aged by advices from Raleigh that prospects of ratification there were hopeful, and the sudden termination of the fight was unexpected. It was conceded by many suffragists that whether women of the nation would vote in November depend on Tennessee. Favorable action, by Flori da was said to be out of the ouestion, and all efforts to persuade the gov ernors of Vermont and Connecticut to rail the legislatures of tho.se states in special session have met with failure.

It was stated messages, received from Mexico City were of such a na ture as to cause Colonel Cantu to de cide to accept them as final instead of waiting as had been planned, for the arrival from the capital of General Salazar's commission as governor. It was announced that Cantu soon would resume his colonelcy in the Mexican army and that meant.'me he would visit Mexico City as the guest of Vico Alessio Robles, editor of El Democrata and brother to M.

General Salazar and- Colonel Cantu gave Senor Robles a large share of the credit for arranging the transfer of the governorship. A brilliant recep tion in honor of the new, governor is being planned, but the date has not been set. General Salazar and Senor Robles were quoted as expressing themselves as "impressed with the cordiality, pa triotism and ldyalty" of Colonel Cantu in the final negotiations. Virtually all of the Cantu appoint ees will be retained by the new- gov ernor, it was announced.

Leased Wire MARION. Ohio. Aug. 17. A confer ence of Republican chiefs, convened today to shape a speaking schedule for Senator ' Harding, adjourned without conpleting the task. Requests that the nominee speak away from Marion were discussed along with plans for the reception here of front porch delegations, but no out of town invitation was accepted and only two dates were added to front porch engagements. Will H. Hays, national chairman, an nounced that "at Senate- Harding's personal insistent wish," the Labor day speech would be delivered from the front porch to a meeting arranged by the Central Labor union. He said the senator was anxiqus to speak on labor issues "here among people who know his labor record," and for that reason invitations to other cities for that day were declined. The other front porch date announced was Sept. 4, when Republican state chairmen will be re ceived. Times and places where cam paign issues are to be presented by Senator Harding also were discussed and it was announced there would be an elaboration of his position on the league of nations in a speech here Aug. 28 to a delegation from Indianap olis. . No Change in Front Porch Plan Besides Mr. Hays and Senator Harding, those present at the confer ence included Senator Harry S. New of Indiana, head of the party's speak ers' bureau; Harry M. Daugherty of Olio, Senator Harding's pre-conven-tion manager, and Henry Wallace of Iowa, publisher of farm periodicals. What took place at the session was described by Senator New as "just a general discussion without reaching any decision except tentatively." He said ail participants except Senator Harding were leaving Marion tonight and that there had been no agreement for resumption of the conference. Chairman Hays said there had been "no hitch" in. the proceedings, but thai the work of sorting over the applica tions and dove-tailing tliem together, had been found very laborious. All of those in the conference were emphatic in declaring they expectea no modification in the front porch campaign. They all said, however, that "a number of speeches" probably would be made in other cities, adding that such trips had been a part of the plan from the beginning. In addition to favoring a front porch Labor day speech, Senator Harding emphasized the number of applications received for appointments here, declar ing that no one-tenth of them could be granted. Among other things there was some discussion of Senator Harding's speech of Sept. 8, at the Minnesota state fair. Farm questions were talked over with Mr. Wallace. LimElrfiiSM Republican A. .

Warsaw ptiiring Cleveland Shortstop Dies of Injuries Sustained in Baseball Game at N. Y. i pAy CHAPMAN baseball world in general, and today's , Cleveland-New York game was called off. Carl Mays was overcome with grief when the news was told to him. The accident occurred at the outset of the fifth inning. Chapman was th first batter and was hit by the first ball pitched. So terrific was the blow that the report of the Impact caused spectators to think the ball had struck his bat. Mays, acting under this impression, fielded the ball that rebounded half way to the pitcher's box and threw it to first base in order to retire Chapman. The n it was noticed that Chapman had collapsed at the home plate. He was lifted to his feet by other players, then he stood dazed for a moment, staggered and crumpled up at their feet. Physicians were im mediately called from the grandstand and they administered first aid, still not knowing that he had suffered a fractured skull. Two players, with Chapman's arms about their shoulders, started to walk him off the field. He appeared to walk at first almost unaided, but a few moments later his legs became limp and he had to be carried bodily to an am bulance. Manager Tris Speaker and Business Manager Walter McNichols of Cleveland were at the hospital when the operation was performed. The surgeons made an incision three and one-half inches long through the base of the skull on the left side. They discovered a rupture of the lateral sinews and a quantity of clotted blood. A small piece of the skull was removed. CHAPMAN FASTEST MAN IN GAME FANDOM MOURNS DEATH OF STAR Republican A. P. Leased Wire NEW YORK, Aug. 17 New York baseball fans paid final tribute to night to Ray Chapman, shortstop of the Cleveland American team, who died early today from the blow he re ceived on the head from a pitched ball in the game between New York and Cleveland yesterday. Tonight Chapman's body was put aboard a train for Cleyeland, where it is to ar rive early tomorrow. Today while the body lay at' the un ertaker's rooms, hundreds of baseball fans called to view it and tonight act ed as an escort as the coffin was placed on a trunk car that carried it through the station to the train. The fans formed an aisle near the gates and stood with bared heads as the car bearing the body passed through. W hile the death of Chapman has caused sorrow among baseball mag nates, players and fans, none seemed as deeply grieved as Carl Mays, the New York pitcher who delivered the ball that resulted in Chapman's death. After the game yesterday Mays went to his room and denied himself to all. He paced the floor during the night and when word came today that Chap man had died, he broke down and said he desired to give himself up as soon as possible. Mays Grief Stricken On his visit to the district attor ney's office. Mays was accompanied by Charles McManus, business manager of the Yankees: Manager Tris Speaker and Secretary McNichols of the Cleve land club. Mays made his statement to Assistant District Attorney John F. Joyce. The pitcher, eyes filled with tears an barely able to tell his story, said: "It was a straight fast ball and not a curved one. When Chapman came to bat I got the signal for a straight fast ball, which I delivered. It was a little too close and - I saw Chapman duck his head to get out of the path of the ball. He was too late, however, and a second later he fell. It was the most regrettable incident of my career and I would give anything if I could undo what has happened." After hearing Mays' story, Mr. Joyce said he thought Chapman's death'was accidental. Speaker Exonerates Mays Manager Speaker of the Cleveland club, talking with Colonel Huston, part owner of the Yankees, said the acci dent was unavoidable. "I do not hold Mays responsible," he added. "I have been active in dis couraging my players from holding Mays responsible and in respect to Chapman's memory as well as for the good of baseball, I hope all talk of this kind will stop. I can realize Mays feels as deeply as any man could, and I do not want to add anything to his bur den. I do not know what prompted the action of the Boston and Detroit players. For my part I think it is de deplorable." Speaker referred to the report from Boston that the players would not play in subsequent games with Mays. Grief for the popular shortstop cut deep into the hearts of his admirers as soon as it became known that an op eration had failed to save his life. The thought that the diamond tragedy would spoil the chances of the Cleve land and New York teams for the American league pennant was general. At her hotel Mrs. Chapman, who ar rived from Cleveland several hours after her husband breathed his last, refused to receive the proffered con dola,tion of her husband's friends and team mates. Except for Tris Speaker she would see no one. The post mortem examination of the body brought no new information. Ac cording to the autopsy surgeon.

He never regained consciousness after an operation which was hurriedly decided on shortly after midnight, when a portion of his fractured skull was removed. Shortly before if was decided to op erate, Manager Tris Speaker tele phoned news of the accident to Chap man's wife in Cleveand, who immedi ately started for New York. News of his death cast gloom over the members of both teams, and the Republican A. P. Leased Wire CLEVELAND, Aug. 17. Raymond Chapman was born in Mcllenry, Ky, January 15, 1891, He had been a mem ber of the Cleveland American league team since August 30, 1912, and was considered one of the best shortstops and most popular players in the game. Chapman played his first profes sional baseball in 1909 with" Mount Vernon, 111. In 1910 he went to Spring field, 111., and from there to Daven port, Iowa, in the Three-I league.- Cleveland obtained Chapman from Davenport in 1911 and sold him to Toledo in the American association on option. He was recalled to Cleveland in 1912 and had played in more than 1,000 games in an Indian uniform. Chapman was one of the fastest men in baseball. On September 27, 1917, Tim Murnane day, at Boston, he won a lovint,- cup for the fastest time in circling the bases, doing it in 14 sec onds. In 1917 he broke all major league sacrifice hit records with a total of 67 and also led the American league in sacrifices in the following two years. Married Last Year , He was married last year to Cath erine Daly of Cleveland, daughter of M. B. Daly, president of the East Ohio Gas company. Mrs. Chapman arrived in New York today. She was met by officials of the American league, Including Tris Speaker, manager of the Cleveland team, who sought to comfort her. Speaker declared that later in the day he would issue a atatement dealing with the accident. At local headquarters of the Ameri can league records on former major league accidents were not available, but John A. Heydler, president of the National league, said that a far as he could remember. Chapman was the first player to lose his life in big league baseball, through any kind of an acci dent. Other Similar Accidents Followers of the sport were inclined today to believe that although the loss of Chapman would handicap Cleveland, the Kankees too. would suffer. They pointed out that a few years ago, after accidentally hitting a player with a ball. Walter Johnson failed to show his usual form in succeeding games, so affected was he by the accident. The most receftt accident of the kind occurred in the South last spring when during the training games of the Superoas and Yankees, a ball thrown by Jeff Pffeffer, the big Brooklyn pitcher, struck Chick Fewster on the head. Fewster was in the hospital for several weeks undergoing an operation for a fractured skull. Pfeffer was off form for several weeks, but improved when it became apparent that Fewster would recover. Another widely known case was that of Hugh Jennings, now manager of the Detroit Americans, but then a member of the championship Baltimore team, who was unconscious some time after having been hit by a ball pitched by Amos Rusie of the New York Na tionals. Another accident was that which be fell Roy Corhan of the White Sox here in 1911. Corhan, then a recruit short stop from the coast, was hit on the head by Russell Ford, former Yankee star spit-baller. For three days Cor han was unconscious and although he recovered, his career in the big leagues was cut short. Ford was so badly af fected by the mishap that he could not sleep while Corhan was uncon scious and later had to be sent to At lantic City for two weeks. The district attorney's oflioe indi cated today that it was not planned to investigate the accident. A formal police investigation. however. whs started when a detect ivo was scut to interview Pitcher Mays. oviets rategic French Arms and Troops Aid Poles In Desperate Attempt to Check Ad vance on Warsaw i Republican A.

While it is too soon to forecast thj future of the great battle raging neal Warsaw, the Poles appear to retain thi initiative they took Saturday and con- tinue to hold the bolshevik! in check. In the southeast, on the western Bug, they have scored notable successes. Nevertheless the situation, with War saw threatened from three sides, un doubtedly remains serious and every thing depends on the ability of the Poles to keep up their tactics. It is considered significant in mili tary circles that the Moscow wireless has been unusually silent today. Poles Recapture Radzymin WARSAW, Aug. 17. A feature of the fighting on the Warsaw front is the struggle for possession of Radzymin, northeast of the capital. At last ac counts the Poles had retaken it in a counter stroke today and had pushed the bolsheviki northeastward. The Poles now are holding a line about a mile on the other side of the town, which has been pretty well shot up by bolshevik artillery. Radzymin has changed hands four or five times. The reds in this sector are using infantry, numerous machine guns, artillery and cavalry. Poles Win Strategic Pocitiona PARIS. Aug. 17.

During the battle a Polish chaplain, Ignacy Korupa, was killed while leading the attacking forces clad In his church robes and with a crucifix in his hand. Five Polish officers also were killed and 11 wounded. French tactics are being used.
