It was sweltering hot. But men took their coats off, women wielded fans, and they jumped to their feet demanding the impeachment of Presi dent Wilson and shook the whole house as they tagged him a "quitter." Senator Johnson left at noon today for Indianapolis, while Borah ana McCormlck prepared to follow differ ent routes, confident that if the en thusiasm met in Chicago is continued, the Senate will have complete backing In making amendments and reserva tions to the treaty recommended by the Foreign Relations Committee.

Would Help Pnrty Chances." Politicians assort that when the treaty is7 out of the way, the two old political parties will begin to spar for the advantage in the l!-0 campaign, and if business conditions are Rood, the Democrats will have a bhow to win. Mr. Hurley. Democratic leaders think, would do much to put the coun try on a line footing in the business world. For several days it has been re ported that the President would name some quiets easy-going man. without aggressiveness, to mark time until March. 1921. but I he Hurley story came today and swept that idea away.

Iledfield'M Future Uncertain. Secretary Redfield denies today that he is to head a foreign credit clearing house to bo organized in New York, but argued that such a thing would be jolly fine if the peace treaty were ratified. "There is no basis in fict," said he, "for the statement published in a New York paper today that I have been selected as the executive head ofa foreign credit clearing house. So tare as 1 am informed no such organi zation exists, no one Is authorized to extend such an invitation on be half of any organized body, and no such Invitation, therefore, has come to me. So far as my own action Is concerned, however, nothing further can be said than was- stated by me last week that I am considering several matters which have been .sug gested to me, none of which has reached a decisive stage. "The subject of foreign credits be ing raised, however, it is proper to state that the first great need of the country today is peace. The energies or our industry and commerce are choked at the source, so far asthelr outreach Into the great world is con cerned, because we are stiy at War There rises before the United States a unique opportunity both to servel the worm and to earn great ana ae served rewards for itself, but we cannot take up that opportunity in any adequate way until wb have peace."

"If we fail to receive our regular supply of foodstuffs each day. wc shall have a serious fcituation here.

I am assured there will be no interference with less than carload freight, particularly perishables." I LINB PRISONE ECOMES TYPIST WEDS HERO WHO SAVED HER LIFE NEW YORK, Sept. 11.
