Box 315 Tel. 363-M Erattleboro, Vt He Has Always Inclined Toward Wets Bryan Will Be the Johnson of the Convention Will Try to Get Dry Resolution Adopted. - ..it By DAVID LAWRENCE. ; (Special Despatch to The Reformer, Copyright 1020.) 1 SAX FRANCISCO, June 2.3. William Gibbs McAdoo's declaration that he was not quitting the presidential race because of ill health strengthened his position with his many friends here Who had tome to the conclusion that the advice of a nhrsician had something to do with his abrupt refusal to have his name pre sented to the Democratic national con vention. . But the statement made no refeernce to the second theory generally advanced here that President Wilson and his former secretary of the treasury have concluded that it would be embarrassing to both, to consent-to the candidacy of one . whose distinguished father-in-law is taking such a prominent part in fram ing the platform of this convention. feo the McAdoo forces have taken on renewed life, and have rearranged their lines. They re not convimwd -McAdoo deliberately withdrew and failed to en courage any movement for himself sim ply because he believed the only way the nomination should come to him, if at all, would be after the convention had spon taneously chosen him without regard to his' own wishes or any suggestion direct or indirect, from the White House. He Would be in an infinitely stronger' posi tion before the country if 6 nominated. and .would not be obligated, either to liis distinguished father-in-law ; or anyone else! and would be absolutely free frora niedges or pre-convention promises. , l With the single question of, .-ill health removed which, by the way ,v troubled JSlcAdoo s friends more than anything else for it was the only way (they could account tor the suddenness ana mys teriousness or his tactics, there is a change from despondency to enthusiasm n tJie' McAdoo camp. Thev are now de i t i i j ii. . errpyieu 10 go aiieau, anu me announce- lentl that JJr. Jtsurns Jenkins ot Jlansas .ltv will place JUcAdoo s name in nomi natioh without Ins consent has served to 'concentrate attention upon the nomi nating speech. ( . JVr; McAdoo, incidentally, in his latest statement, appears to be laboring under the impression that the story about his having a serious illness was inspired by sources unfriendly to lnm for he says after denying the published report, that " it would be impossible for me to pub liclv characterize such despicable nieth ods; ; There was no effort to injure McAdoo's chances of nomination. The story was on the lips of many a good friend of ileAdoo and was the principal item o gossip among the McAdoo supporters some arguing it was true and some con tending it wasn't. Mr. McAdoo's refer ence to "despicable methods" suggests to some observers here that the former sec retary of the treasury is sensitive about his candidacy and believes there is some movement here to hurt his chances of a nn Iri j ? SERIES fXPO for Good spontaneous nomination. By clearing the air on the health question, he has helped matters Th his own behalf a great deal and his efforts to prevent Dr. Jen kins from nominating him are consid- red excellent tactics. But without bet ter organ izatiauon.the,Jloor, Mr. Mc Adoo s chance? would- appear to be slim at this writing. With the arrival, however, of Senator Carter Glass, who' brought a copy of sev eral planks for the' . platform approved by President Wilson, the real issue which must be decided before a candidate is chosen is the wet . or dry question. If this is "a AVilm cojiventro and it prob ably will.bg, droyed o nthc fearlv ses sions, there will beat' least u moist plank I MI -me ,fuiviw4iu jui, me ttime xiouse nas ,vci iukiimiw?-' iipvas piniDut w the -writer, '..for inetarjeej with gestures of significance ttday that -Fresuleut Wilson vetoed the VelsteaM. act. and that the latter became -avlaw over his veto Moreover, it should e remembered, Mr. Wilson never sent -messages to state legislatures urging them to adopt the lteth amendment; vhile he has taken a vital interest 1 in the constitutional amendment to grant the franchise to women. v Eastern democracy is. of course, wet arid has enough votes to exercise a bal ance of power between the more or less assive South and the arid West. Western Democrats admit : they; are .amazed by the: overwhelming 'wet sentiment being wafted hither -from' the East. Several Democratic-leaders want.to.win so badly that they are considering the advisability of taking a leaf out of the Republican book at Chicago ana urging a plank that is both for and against something, satis fies most everybody, prevents a quarred and permits a, candidate to interpret the plank as he - pleases in the campaign. The league of nations plank of the Re publican national , convention may find its parallel m a compromise plank on the liquor question at the Democratic con vention. What Johnson -was to the Re publican efforts at Jiarmony, Bryan will be to the democrats. air. uryan uas considered making a fight on Homer Ciimmings, who is to be temporary chairman of the convention, because of the alleged wet leanings of the latter. The Wilson forces would welcome such a tilt for Homer Cummings would win easily and Mr. Bryan would be weakened for. any subsequent controver sies, the truth is Mr. Cummings hasn't said whether he is a wet or dry and if forced to say he probably would insist that it was not his affair to dictate to the platform committee. As to that committee, the drys have a big majority, but a minority report con demning the Volstead act will almost cer tainly W brought to the floor of the convention. The delegates are believed to be about equally -divided and the op portunity for a compromise may come in San Francist-o as it did in Chicago. Nothing in the famous Virginia platform which is to be the model on the leatrue of nations refers to the prohibition ques tion, oux i ue Dig relegations trom New York, New Jersey, Indiana, Illinois and Massachusetts are inclined to favor a moist plank. The chances for its aecep- ance as Democratic doctrine this year are improving.. ;. - - SHOT WJFE THEN KILLED HIMSELF I, T. Bashaw Attempted to Kill Di vorced Wife at Morrisville In Ugly Mood When Drinking MORRISVILLE, ' June 23. L. T. Bashaw, 5'J, shot his divorced wife, Ger-1 rude L. Bashaw, 48, and then . killed himself yesterday at their restaurant on ' Pdrtland street. Mrs. Bashaw has been ! taken to the Brightlook hospital ; in St.. Johnsbury and' has a chance for recov ery," although the bulM entered her; head itnd came outthrough the mouth, khock- in, -out several teeth. - . The' first' iriown of the tragedy was 1 when Mr. Bashaw, with blood streaming down her fface, rushed out of the side door of the restaurant and ran to the house of a neighbor, where she incoher ently told the story of the attack upon her. Investigation of the small room ad- j joining the lunch room resulted in the i finding of the body, of Bashaw, death probably having been instantaneous. lhe couple came .here from lrasburg last fall and bought the little restaurant on I'ortlana street. liny occupied tne little room off the lunchroom. The I couple quarreled and Mrs. Bashaw sued her husband for divorce on the ground of intolerable severity. The case was tried at the June 'term of Lamoille county court and Mrs. Bashaw secured the di vorce on the ground alleged. Bashaw went away and Mrs. Bashaw continued to run the restaurant. He came back and. worked about the restau rants One report had it that they were re-married, but there is no confirmation of that report. Mr. Bashaw was considered a pleasant and amiable man when not drinking, but! it is said that he had been addicted to' drinking nearly anything that he could get his hands on that contained alcohol. When in drinking moods he is said to; have been ugly. TWO PROMINENT MEN INJURED Y Value .TEW 98 Years Making Moderate Priced Hosiery . . t. ... . , ..
