Strati., sb nnais on week days ahd paPh4% Sundays, ajs the e Movement failed "colossally," "greatest failure in the history of the Christian Church." Dr. Straton might find a match for that failure in some of the Crusades, especially one that start ed "preceded by a goat and a goose," into which a guiding spirit was supposed to have descended from above. Concerning that, Dr. Straton might read tPat the van guards of 275,000 men, a disorgan ized rabble with women and chil dren, "driven to madness by dis appointment and famine-expect lng in their ignorance that every town they came to must be Jerusa lem-in their extremity laid hands on whatever they could. Their track was marked by robbery, bloodshed, and fire." In the First Crusade more than half a million men died. It was far more disastrous than the "Mos cow .retreat." That was really a "colossal" failure. Yet the Chris tians took Jerusalem in the end. The interesting thing about Dr. Straton's statement is his idea that the Interchu'rch movement failed because it was based on "the vain 4ream of man-made ideal society brought about by education, science, and social service." With all riespect due to Dr. Straton's special illumination from above, the world will continue to believe with John D. Rocke feller, jr., leader of the Inter church movement, that even "man made movements can accomplish something. One man-made movement freed the slaves, another freed this coun try from English rule. Man-made thought created the flying ma chine, the steam engine, and gas engine, and they freed man from the grip of gravitation. A man mnade movement will one day free children from slavery in mines and mills. .Inspiration comes from above, from the Divine Voice that said, "Take heed that ye harm not one of these little ones."

The President will not sit by dur ing the campaign, but the extent of his activity will be determined by the state of his health, it was pointed out. His enthusiasm and personal interest will be in evidence at all times, those close to him declared to day. It is evident in Adminibtration cir. cles that the nomination of McAdoo would have been more acceptable as a votegetter. but the President's per sonal adviqers believe Cox was the second beet choice. hARS NEWS FROM MRS. WILSON. President Wilson retired shortly be fore 10 o'clock last night, but was up early this morning to receive the nomination news, which was convey. ed to him by Mrs. Wilson. Joseph P. Tumulty. secretary to the President. spent virtually the whole night at the executive offices, keep ing in close touch with the events at the convention. He was the personi fication of optimism today as he pointed out to the newspaper men the high spots on the road to Democratic victory. He left very little to be de sired by the Democrats in his confi dent predictions. "The only fear r have now is that the Democrats will become overcon fident," declared Secretary Tumuity. It is the belief of Tumulty that Governor Cox, whom he described as "a smashing campaigner." will put a lot of "sip" in the campaign and will put up a whirlwind fight right up to election day. Always it is "Jimmie" and "Joe" between Cox and Tumulty, the two being warm personal friends.

It was relayed in to her by her husband, and Mrs. McAdoo laughed a regular happy laugh. A few minutes later she appeared on the front porch to greet news paper men and let them see for them selves that she was Indeed in earnest when she said that she would rather be the wife of just plain William Gibbs McAdoo than President Mc Adoo. VpIRST DUTY TO CEILDREN. "Not that I wouldn't be delighted to return to Washington to Ile." she said to The Times representative, "but I feel with Mr. McAdoo that our first duty is to our children." Ed Hewtnan didn't laugh, however. when he was told the news. He reg istered extreme disappointment and he didn't try to hide it. "Of course I wanted the boss to be president," he said. "And I'm sure that bunch 'out in California, made a terrible mistake when they didn't nominate him. it's a shame." Ed Hewman is a character that would have been worth a column or two in any paper ifMcAdoo had been nominated. As it is he's worth at least a few paragraphs. Of the whole McAdoo outfit he is the only one who has exhibited the least interest in the broceedings at California. Since last Thursday night when the newspapermen began camp ing on the McAdoo estate Ed Hewman has spent every spare minute of his time with the bunch getting the re turns and entertaining them with weird tales of the sea which he used o sail.

A few days ago, in address ing a political meeting in Ohio, and in characteristic fashion, Governor Cox was hammering the opposition, when a man in the audience sang out: "That's right. Give 'em hell, Jimmy." Abruptly the governor paused, and declaring. "That man's a friend of mine," proceeded to "give 'em" what was ordered. The incident, hip friends say, shows that Governor Cox, in spite of his in nate dignity and reserve, which can be formidable when the occasion de mands, is a "good mixer.9 In his candidacy, much emphqis is laid on the fact that either before or since the civil war, only one other man, Rutherford B. Hayes. has been thrice elected governor of Ohio. In fact, we read, Governor Cox is an avowed politician and is by no means ashamed of the appellation. He knows all the cArds and most of the tricks in the political game.

However, when the motion was made to make his nomination b*' ac clamation, there were half-a-dosea delegations clamoring for reoogni tion by Senator Joseph T. Robinson, the chairman. in order to -register changes in their votes, which. if they had been recorded, would have given him a substantial majority over the required two-thirds. The end of the long. gruelling flglt, which had its beginning Friday night. found the delegates weary and heav7 eyed from lack of sleep. For nearly twelve hours they had sat in the hard seats of the auditorium keyed up to 'a high pitch of excitement which had found outlet a score of times in mad, nerveracking demonstrations. 32 BALLOTS DURING DAY. Twenty-two ballots were taken dur ing the day, and it was not until Vnld night that any of them gave promise of developing a pominee. On the forty-third ballot. after Pal mer had announced his withdrawal from the race and released his dele gates, it became apparent that Gov ernor Cox would be the nominee. It became then dnly a question of time. Two mettons were madt frm the Geer by MeAdee supporters to adJeaE the convention until aeoa today, ht each of them was howled down by COX adherets. Governor Cox polled 568 votes en the forty-third ballot. It was the first time that any of the candidates in the more than two days and nights of constant balloting had re ceived a majority vote. Between the frt'y-third and forty-fourth ballots the Cox people staged a memorable dem onstration, a riotous procession, par ticipated in by weary, delirious par tisan.. the scene. of which will live long in the memories of those who witnessed them. The last ballot started ,by giving , the Ohio governor majorities from the very first. As State aiter.State fell into line for Cox, it became certain that nothing short of a miracle could stop his nomination, either on that ballot or the next succeeding one.

They were a bit too slew. Unob served by many, Samuel B. Amidos, natilonal committeeman from Kaassa and one of the McAdoo managers, had. come quietly to the edge of the speaker's platform. He tugged at Senator Robinson's elbow. "The gentleman from Kansae," bel lowed Robinson above the din. The hall was in an uproar. Stome of the delegates were singing.
