Tho recent movement in favor of Herbert Hoover for president was "a .protest against party control not a declaration that in i all tho broad Uniteil Slates, Herbert) Hoover was the only man fit to be our president," declared James W. Gerard, In an address here tonight at the Jef ferson Day dinner of the national Democratic club. "At the Jackson Day dinner in Washington, I advocated the nomina tion of Hoover by the Democratic party," Mr. Gerard said. "That was when I and other admirers of Hoover saw in him a man who had done good service, who seemed independent and I who could afford to await the offer of a nomination. "But Herbert Hoover, a partisan, seeking only the Republican nomina tion, standing hat in hand before the I house when the forces of reaction are In council, is quite another Hoover. It I In a Mahomet going a suppliant to the mountain, not a mountain offering the nomination to an Independent And IH because the Republican party is the B9 party of reaction, there lies danger in jHl its success." iflBiil Prince of Wales Nears 9B Shores of lojiokk :Wm HONOLULU, T.
