John Kelly Prominent Among
Prospective Candidates
In Hands of Friends
“The unification of the Democra
tic party in Middlesex county is gen
uine," declared Joseph E. Strieker,
campaign manager for Judge George
S. Silzer. a candidate for the nomina
tion for governor in the Democratic'
primaries, yesterday at Sea Girt.
This statement was made by Mr.
Strieker to an Evening News repor
ter. just before the crowd of Middle
sex county delegates to the Little
White House as the guests ot Gov
h ernor Edward I. Edwards began to
* disperse.
Middlesex county day at Sea Girt
is one that will long be rememoer
;d by the 2,500 or more persons pres
ent from all sections of the county.
Although Union and Somerset coun
ties were also represented, Middlesex
county delegations greatly out-num
bered those from the other counties.
The Middlesex boosters were every
where and could readily be located
by the badges they wore.
It was a jolly, enthusiastic and
loyal crowd that the governor greet
ed. One of the remarkable Incidents
of the day which was the cause of
considerable surprise was the num
ber of Republicans present. To clap
the climax Congressman T. Frank
Appleby, a Republican, was present
tor the greater part of the day hob
noblng with Democrats and seemed
to Jig enjoying himself Immensely.
^During his stay at Sea Girt Con
gressman Appleby was In conversa
tion with Dr. William E. Ramsay,
of this city, whom he defeated for
office' two years ago and who may
oppose him. in the coming contest.
Although it had been reported in
the county that petitions for the
candidacy of Dr. Ramsay for con
gressman would be placed in circu
lation yesterday, none could be
found. Dr. Ramsay spent several
hours among the voters out reiuseu
to have anything to say about the
possibilities of becoming a candi
date as he is still considering the
Although no official announcement
was made of a county and local
slate for the coming primaries, from
the conversation of prominent Derm -
crats of the city, it is probable that
p It will be along the following lines:
r United States Senator, Edward I.
Edwards: governor, George S. Silzer:
congress,. Dr, William E. Ramsay,
Elmer H. Geran; Assembly, Fred De
Voe, James Murray, James Gerity
and Milton Preger; freeholders, John
Kelly, Klemmer Kalteisen, Lawrence
Dalton. George Allgair: surrogate,
John Kirkpatrick; mayor John Shee
hy; ajdermen first ward. Max Scott,
Edward Hardlman; third ward,
Thomas Patten; fifth ward, John J.
Clark, Joseph Maloney.
There were four distinct features
In connection with the affair that
can well be brought out. One was
the reception given County Clerk
Bernard M. Gannon by Governor
Edwards, the snapping of Governor
Edwards. Gannon, Brown and Silz> r
tn one photograph, the cheers given
Edwards, Silzer and Ramsay and
the playing of the St. Peter's Boy
Scout Fife and Drum Corps from
New Brunswick.
Although delegates began to ar
rive early in the morning it was not
until the Gannon boosters from
Perth Amboy reached the Little
White House that a showing for
Middlesex county began to take
place. Newspapermen, visitors and
political leaders present flocked
about Governor Edwards to see what
kind of a greeting would take place
between himself and Gannon. Across
the lawn came Gannon, a smile on
his face, and walking up to the gov
ernor. he extended his hand, saying
"Hello, governor, to which fc.award*
replied "Hello, Barney." With the
taking of their pictures by newspa
. permen the first sensation of the
I day had passed.
* The City Democratic Club arrived
shortly after Gannon's boosters. As
they approached the calliope leading
them pteamed forth the strains of
“Hail, Hail, the Gangs all Here.”
Former Senator Brown was In this
lineup and after greeting the gover
nor, a photograph of Edwards. Gan
non, Brown and Silzer was taken.
For a time it seemed as If Gannon
would not consent to appear In the
plfotograph but finally through the
urging of his friends and Secretary
Foley, agreed to stand alongside the
governor. However, Gannon and
Brown did not speak. This ended
the second sensation for which the
crowd had been waiting.
When Dr. William E. Ramsay ar
rived, he was greeted on all sides as
the next congressman, and soon af
ter this someone proposed three
cheers for Governor Ed wards. They
were given. Then three cheers were
given Judge Silzer and these were
' followed by three for Ramsay as the
next congressman.
Although there was considerable
sentiment for Ramsay as congress
man there was also a strong under
current for Elmer H. Geran of Mon

Candidate to Oppose Clark or
Maloney Selected by the
City Republicans
Regarded Sure That Munozi
Will be Candidate in the
Third Ward
A meeting of the city Republican
committee is scheduled to be held
Monday night in the headquarters
of the G. O. P. Club, Odd Fellows
building. The committee at this
time will, it is understood, go over
the list of eligibles who are likely
to entier the various contests for mu
nicipal offices nest fall. It has been
reported that a complete city ticket
has been drawn up, with no con
tests, but as yet nothing official
along this line has been forthcom
ing from the committee.
The only vacancy on tne city tick
et up until now has been that of a
strong candidate in the fifth ward
for alderman. It has been learned
that the Republicans in that Demo
cratic stronghold have selected as
their candidate, Michael P. Trygar,
of Division street. As far as can be
learned from political gossip about
the city Trygar is considered the
strongest man the Republicans can
put in the race in the fifth ward
against Alderman John J. Clark,
provided that the present Incum
bent is nominated and there seems
to be little doubt about that.
The city Republican, ticket as It
looms up now, with no contests at
the primaries, is as follows:
Mayor—William C. W'ilson.
Alderman, First W'ard—John E.
Alderman, Third Ward—A. F.
. .Alderman, Fifth Word—Michael
P. Trygar.
Recorder—Harold E. Plckersglll.
In order to regain control o£ the
council, the Republicans must elect
all three aldermanic candidates.
This is a big task as two of the
Ihree aldermen whose terms expire
thio year are Democrats and both
seek re-election. Alderman Sofield
will again be a candidate on the
Republican ticket in the first ward
and his re-election is considered
practically a certainty by the Re
publicans. As yet the name of no
Democratic opponent to the present
alderman has been heard in politi
cal circles.
The third ward offers a different
situation. Here Alderman Thomas
Patten, Democrat, seeks re-election
and Street Commissioned A. F.
Munoz will be the Republican choice
At the last election Alderman Patten
was given a hard fight by Frank
Wcglom and the Republicans this
year Intend to use every effort to
lino the third ward up with the first
and sixth by giving it a G. O. P.
representative in the council.
There will be m contest at the
primaries for the Republican alder
manic nomination in the fifth ward,
according to the present outlook.
Trygar is said to have been selected
by the Republicans and will receive
their firm support. On the other
ticket, however, Joseph F. Maloney,
candidate for the assembly two years
ago, is reported to have decided to
enter the aldermanic race against
Alderman John J. Clark.
Recorder Plckersglll will have no
opposition at the primaries. William
M. Hallahan, police clerk at the
present time, will be the Democratic
candidate for this office.

Say Production of Coal Will
be Large Enough for the
Country’s Demands
WASHINGTON. July 29.—With
organization of the government's fuel
control machinery rapidly nearing
completion the outlook as to dis
tribution and supply of coal was
.viewed as so favorable today that
President Harding was said to con
template no further move in the
coal strike situation. Confidence was
expressed at the White House thin
regardless of the rail and mine strike
production of coal would eventually
be increased to the point where it
would be adequate to meet the coun
try's needs.
The normal coal needs of the
country are about 8,500.000 tons a
week. The government’s survey has
convinced the President aud his ad
visers that with the restoration
of full rail transportation and the
use of the Interstate Commerce
Commission’s orders for the control
j of the mo ments of coal and other
’ necessities, the fuel supply can he
j brought to 6,500.000 tons a week

Scene Of Conference
CHICAGO. July £9 (Ry The Asso
ciated Press).—As the strike of 300,
000 railwuy shop men entered its
fifth week today the outlook for
peace was regarded ns bright in rail
circles here the belief was expressed
that walkout would not last into the
sixth week.
Meetings were set for Tuesday
botli by the rail chiefs and workers
on strike at which time President
Harding’s plans for a settlement was
expected to be acted upon. The con
ference of rail heads the call for
which was issued Thursday by T.
DeVVitt Cuyler, chairman of the as
sociation of railway executives, will
be held in New York.
Representatives of the strikers
will meet in Chicago in answer to
work sent out last night by R. M.
Jewell, head of the shopworkers' or
ganization to the ninety general
chairmen comprising th enational
agreement cxcutlve board.
At the same time notice was giv
en to twenty-live general chairmen
of the stationery firemen and oilers
union wl 'eh ordered a strike of
8,000 men a week following the
shopmen's walkout by Timothy
Healy, head of the union, that a
meeting would be held here Tues
day to discuss settlement of the
strike of that organization.
The President's plans were not
made public. However, it became
known front authrltative sources
that it embraced settlement of all
the strikers’ grievances except the
wage question which would be sut
mltted to the railroad labor board
for a rehearing.
1 Under the plan as outlined the
’ President's stand for recognition of
the rights of men now at work
would lie carried out. Union shop
men who did not strike would be
placed at the head of the railroad's
seniority list which means that they
would be assured of permanent em
ployment since in flat time the walk
ers at the foot of the list are the
first to be laid oft'. Union shopmen
who went on suike would be placed
next cn the list and after them would
come tiie men hired by the roads
since the strike began. No mention
was made of the pension rlghus and
it was i.ot learned whether this
question had been included in the
president's plan. If pension rights
have been in the service of their re
spective employers for a number of
years would forfeit the benefits al
lowed which give workers the privi
lege of retiring after a certain num
ber of years with a continuance of
a percentage of their pay.
Western railroads have been in -
sistant that men now at work would
be p'aced at the head of seniority
lists asserting that if their rights are

no incentive for men to stay at
