June r.. Disagreement between General Wood's manners over whether the Republican national 1 committee has been "steam rolling his , leleeates furnished the Inc dent which ' was needed to wind ui the Republican convention preliminaries with a three, rins finish. , t. J Although Sena for Moses, one of the! general's managers, has denounced tntj decisions of the oornir.Jssion wnlth I have seated Lowden delegates dver, Wood contestants as a "steam roller j procedure.

II Can't rind Bamlwugon u Steam roller hasn't appeared in the vr&, 7l preliminaries sln-e the celebrated ' Taft-Roosevoit con'est oC 1312 and it adds to the problems of the tmin structed delegate, whoso to -speak. Is having sdmo difficulty iii locating tho band wagon. There are several elements which contribute "to the support of predic tions that It in going to be a regular old time convention. Four years agp on pro-convention Saturday everything looked pretty tame. Charles S. Hushes was as good as nominated although It was a dozen whirling eddies each loaded with possibilities of developing Into fictitious proportions. Confusing Flemenl.s Many steadying influences which guided the preliminaries of four year ago are abeont now and a good many new elements which make for confu sion are present. In the first place the majority of the delegates are un Instructed, and although aB is gencr-, ally the case, a majority of them arc anxious to board some band wagon, there does not appear to be arty. Thero m are several vehicles ready to be rolled I VI out but tho horsepower doesn't seem rt to be mobilized as vet and everybody seems to look to the possibilities that some of the horses may be dark. r, 1 Moreover, the delegates who. will havo i. to contribute tho votes to nominate can'T tne candidate 8ccm to be having little da?' rcal Information so far as to tho start ihn lnB" Point of the procession, although they are being invited in half a dozen different directions. inj Bosses arc Absent T Then there is the absence of the tee steadying influence, of the old time wal leaders who have hitherto been able life to guide the destinies or the conven or tion, The bosses who speak with a banj noto of authority seem to be absent Mj and although the Incoming delegates a'ho are willing to be )od they don't find ferei any considerable party being person- cordl ally conducted In any one direction. i El About the only thing thnt everybody; olle seems to be agreed upon is that no, ale) candidate Is going to be nominated onj jfMf the first ballot and from the Informa- jH tion that leaks out from the various! H inner circles of the different groups H', it seems that all the managors are jH 'figuring on at loast three ballots toj find, out where they stand and make up their estimates on tho possibilities jH The prediction of many soasoned poll-1 tlcians is that tho convention will have Its opening hurrah, the complimentary votes for tho favorite sons, the ballots H to fulfill the instructions and pledges H! and then the real business will begin, j H; Mnybc Dark Horse I H' If the program being talked of lsi jf carried out the loo dor of tho delega-l tlons from the larger states will havo, HB a conference and decide whothor they, will pool their votes, and. returning' H' to the convention next morning, cast! them for tho man about whom thoy H. have hopes of rallying enough support i to command a majority. Whether ho! bo dark horse or one of the candidates now in the field, no one assumes to H- say. because only tho preliminary H' balloting can dotcrmine it. But with that as a starting point, the seasoned politicians aro qulto sure there will be littlo delay in getting to an agreement It may develop that somo of tho candl Hr dates now in the field besides having good prospects for his own nomination H" will also hold a veto power which will compel tho compromiso managors to accept a man of whom he approves.

Another lilcmont j There Is still another olomont which adds to tho uncertainty which prom lses to contlnuo uj to tho tlmo tho j convention begins to ballot.

The letter states there is no cause for the present campaign I of "reduced prices" in cloth-1 I ing, except that some retailors desire to unload their seasonal j merchandise under new and j sensational advertising. ; "With labor insisting upon j Ireceving increased wages iu j the woolen and cotton mills, I jwith the phortcned working .day I j lessening production, we can-j not see how prices can be eucl-l denly flowered," the letter j read:.

C, Procter, his campaign manager, support charges of Senator Mose, of New Hampshire that tho national committee has used "steam roller" methods In Its contests decisions, Mr. McCoy declared. In calling tho committee's attention to the Moses' charges, Mr. McCoy said he resented them, and added: t "The vote of this committee on ! every case has been on the rights and I Justice, and not tinged by any por i sonal preforonce as to candidates. Thero Is no basis for Senator Moses i statement. It Is unwarranted and is his own personal opinion and is not !the opinion either of General Wood or I Colonel Procter." i Hays Sees Harmony. !

ESKIMO SHOOTS TWO FOR WOMAN HE LOVES Blizzards and Wilderness Are Nothing to Hardy Members of Force. N. E. A. Staff Correspondent. WINNIPEG. June 5. The Royal Northwest Mounted police proudly boast that there is no place In the Canadian northwest, no matter how remote lUbe from civilization, where law may be violated with impunity. And today as backing for that claim an Eskimo, who killed two of his fellow tribesmen, and an Indian, who murdered his cousin In the Bar ren Lands df the north, sit In cells at Dauphini Manitoba, awaiting trial. Sergeant W. O. Douglas of the fa mous scarlet-coated force, who walked and ran with a dog team" more than 2000 miles to arrest tho Eskimo and take him to the nearest court, and Ser geant B. H. L. Thompson, who trav eled 500 miles in the same manner to get the Indian, havo just arrived in Winnipeg. Story of Murdpr. In Dauphin court house, where Ouangwak, the Eskimo, and James Wastaslcootr the Indian,, were bound ever for trial, tho stories of the mur deVa and-ths-long.o.bnses-came- out- - The Eskimo shot his two victims be cause ho wanted the wife of one of tho men. Undor tho Eskimo code of morals, ho could not havo her so long as tho husband was living. His second victim was slain as a measure of precaution; he was the husband's brother and Ouangwak surmised he would try to avenge the murder. Ouangwak freely confesses that he shot Angalookyouak through the head while ho slept and that he killed the brother, 'Alccnnilok, by shooting him through tho breast. Ho Is particularly proud of the way In which ho cowed tho entire tribe. After the murders, he took Anga lookyouak's wlfo to his own igloo and. with rlflo In hand, challenged any or all members of the tribe who desired to dispute his possession of tho woman or tho manner In which he had won her, to step forward and bo shot. It made hltn the hero of the tribe. The killing occurred last August at Lake Yathkyed, known to the natives as Shekolookyouak, about 900 miles straight north of Winnipeg. Sergeant Douglas, who is officer in charge of the mounted police at Fullerton, the farthest north polico post on Hudson bay, received the news in December. Travelers had brought back news of the "Terrible Lover's" killings. Polico Sets Out. Douglas set out for Lake Yathkyed on Dec. 19, arriving there and mak ing tho arrest Feb. 9. Ouangwak offered no resistance. With Ida prisoner and the woman, Tho officer and Ouangwak walked and ran all tho way, but Cunuolt, tho heroine of the tragic romance, who weighed 1200 pounds, had to be hauled on the dogaled. "I had to take her to relatives at Churchill," Douglas explained. "She would have died at tho camp. It Is the Eskimo custom to allow widows and others, who havo no one to look after them, to starve." Douglas and the Eskimo then Went down tho coast of tho bay In 'JS days, facing a blizzard most of tho way and frequently freezing their faces, feet ana hands. It was often DO degrees below zero.

C. LSdED I President Tells Brotherhood H Nothing Could Be Expected H From Lawmakers H ATTEMPT MADE TO I DEFER ADJOURNMENT Political Expediency Rather H Than Lofty Service Actuates H Bodv. He Savs H WASHINGTON. June 5. President Wilson, in" a telegram today, to ol ficials of the railroad brotherhoods, jH criticized congress for failing to tako action with regard to the-high cost of living, the conclusion of peace 'and important domestic legislation. ll The telegram was in reply to a message asking the president to pre vent the adjournment of congress to day. The executive said that in the light of the record of the present con gress "I have no reason whatever to hope that its continuance in session would result in constructive mea3 uros for the relief of the economic conditions to which you call at tention." Political Expediency "It must be evident to all," the president said, "that the dominating motive which has actuated this con gross Is political expediency rather ' than-rlofty purpose-.. to -sorvejile--pTib-lie welfare." accepted some of the legislation en acted by this congress because ho "despaired of anything better." The text of tho president's tele gram follows: "I received your telegram of Juno 3rd. You call my attention to mat ters that I presented to the present congress in a special message de livered at a joint session of the two houses on August S, 1919. In nine months this congress has, however, taken no important remedial action with respect to the problem of the cost of living on the lines indicated in that address or on any other line. Not only has the present congress failed to deal directly with the cost of living, but Jt has failed even to give serious consideration to tho tir gent appeal, oft repeated by me and by tho secretaries of the treasury, to revise the tax law as which in their present form they are indi rectly responsible in part for the high cost of living. The protracted delay in dealing with the problem of the railroads, the problem of the government owned merchant marine, and other similar urgent matters has resulted in unnecessary burdens upon the public treasury, and ultimately in legislation so unsatisfactory that I could accept it, If at all, only because I despaired of anything better Tho I present congress has not only pre- vented the conclusion or peace in Europe but has failed to present any constructive plnn for dealing with I the deplorable conditions there, tho j continuance of which can only reflect I upon us. "In the light of the record .of the I present congress I have no reason J ; whatever to hope that its continu- ' jance in session would result in con istmctlve measures for the relief of j tho economic conditions to which I you call attention. It must be evi jdent to all that the dominating mo j tivo which Ms actuated this congress jis political expediency rather than lofty purpose to serve the public jH I welfare.'
