JOHNSON PREPARED FOR LEAGUE EIGHT CHICAGO. June 6.? Hiram Johnson put in another busy day yesterday at his headquarters, receiving long- lines of visitors and the delegates from early morning until late in the even ing. He was on the bo every minute, except for a brief interval when he took lunchcon with Mrs. Johnson and their two sons at the ISIaekstone. The Senator announced that In con trast to the intention of General Wood and Governor Lowden to absent them selves from Chicago during the con vention, h? intended to stay on the job and give It his close personal at tention until the battle is over. Pleaaed With Outlook. "I am morf happy nltk the passing hour," Jofanaoa aald at tke end af kla ?Irrnuoua day. "a.n d more hopeful. too." Johnson reiterated hU purpose of Insisting upon u straightout declara tion agiiinst the league. of Nations in the party platform. He was told of the announcement by Governor Lo*' den that lie favored rat ideation of the treaty with reservations, and the statement by Nicholas: Murray Flutter that if Johnson made a fight for a denunciation of the league he would j lake the floor in opposition to it. I Tlie California Senator assumed his j characteristic fighting pose upon be ing told of these statements, and de clared that the platform is going to be Just as he wants it to be. As reason for this b.e declared the party would not dare repudiate the voice of the pcdple which has been raised strongly against the leaeue In every State where there has been a contest. He said: Wan't Stud far Lruie. "The platform is going to be. In my opiron. as t ought to be. n straightout declaration against the present league covenant. Tf Mr. Butler or Governor ; Lowden believe their position is right, they are perfectly light in making a fight for it.

"Cut. it would be perfectly silly aiid suicidal for the party to thlnj< of si raddling on such an important is?ue, one on which the people have ex pressed themselves overwhelmingly in many of tlie States.

"That's right?, that's right." The chairman rapped repeatedly ior order. Members of the committee talked among themselves as l'ollard spoke. Some of them were openly critical of the Virginia party leaders. "I didn't know such things could exist." one national committeeman was heard to say. "If we can't take part in Repub lican politics In itlie South wc will come to the North, Just as n million and a half of us have done within the past four years, and by means of the ballot in your Northern States, we will finally overthrow the Repub lican party in the South and make It what we think it ought to be."

Several lawyers from Virginia cities argued that the police had not been requested by Republican party leaders to bar negroes from local conventions, but Polland proved his case, time after timj, with affidavits. Tolland's plea that the Virginia delegates sent to the national con vention by a State convention In which, he said, negroes did not par ticipate. he declared unseated was made in vain. But a direct result of his eloquence was a resolution offered by National Committeeman Jackson, of Maryland, which provided that a? committee 'ie appointed "who shall carefully an<J Impartially study the whole political situation In the South ?nd also Its relations to that In the North with a view to reporting at the next meeting of the national com mlttee how the Republican party In the Slates of the South may be re organised to make a more effective ugent for spreading RepublleaSi prin ciples and clcctlntf Republican elcc tora. 6.0.
