Democratic Leaders Seem
Not Able to Get Together.
May Yet Be a Compromise
in Contest Between
Martin and Slack.
The backs of the elephants -was not
the only place -where there was opllti!
cal talk In the city yesterday. Politics
generally was an oft recurring theme
; of conversation and local politics got
a pretty thorough airing at all the
usual meeting placse of men.
The outstanding feature of the local
political talk is that the Democratic
contest over the nomination for
prosecuting attorney has taken the
place of the row over the county
clerkship in popular interest. A great
lot of rumors of the most interesting
kind regarding this contest are llying
about and the dyed in the wool Dein
ocrats confess ihey arc fust as muca
at sea over It as the veriest outsider.
It has been known from tbe start
that Boss Powell and the members of
his politest! cabinet have been at odds
over this situation. Then for a while
| there was a report that they had
agreed upon one of the three candidates,
particulars lacking as to which.
No wa comparison of notes on the
circsn day .gossip leads to the assumption
thnrthey are as'far'apart asever,
but feeling pretty badly about the situation
and anxious to come to some
kind of a compromise.
Just after the primary tickets were
made up one shrewd political observer
remarked that Musgrave was
the Standard Oil aspirant. Rose the
I man favored by the court house ring,
while Miller was rnunlng on his own,
I but in possession of a moral claim on
j the nomination by virtue of promises
| made to him four years ago and the
i fiancial and other support that he
I gave to Haggerty at that time.
A wee kor so ago it was reported
that Tusca Morris and his friends had
told Powell plainly that there was not
the clightest hope of electing his man
at the general election, and that after
an examination of th facts as they
were presented he admitted this.
'L* thia oik.

cording to one story current yesterday,
they fent up into the air with a
rapidity and push that threatened to
take away some ot Major Shroeder's
altitude reeords. But they iinally
came down and are preparing to
make a deal with Musgrave the minute
they are sure the Democratic
bosses had united upon Rose, who is
considered an outiander by the close
friends of both Miller and Musgrave.
The lack of harmony upon the part
of the Democratic higher-ups may be
deliberately cerated for some purpose
that is not yet apparent, but if that is
the case they have been guilty of defective
strategy, for the inability to
agree among them has strengthened
the feeling of the Miler folks that
they really have a claim on the nomination
and they are making pretty
strong efforts to push their claim
with Musgrave, who is making a personal
canvas of the county, and according
to the tales that are being
brought in from the outlying towns is
proving a wonder along that line. The
Rose campaign, on the other hand,
seems to be a rather quiet one and
for the present at least depends more
upon the royal favor of Tusca than
upon^hy other one thing.
Toat the whole political situation
in the Democratic party, of which this
triangular contest Is but one feature,
is anything but satisfactory to Democrats
who vit> not care very much for
the partisan squabbles but are solicitous
for sucess at the polls in November
is evident from the talk of the necessity
to smooth out the various
lights for nomination. One of the
tale sthat was circulated yesterday,
it wsa bare] ya whisper, bnt it may be
a roar before the end otabe week, ran
4 effort f hnt n Tinffort is to be
made to settle the contest between
Arthur aMrtin and Ed Slack for the
county clerkship nomination. Slack
has been raising catn, politically
speaking, and there is ({round for the
belief that most of the Democratic
leaders would prefer him to Martin,
but they are in. no position _to get
along without the latter during the
coming general campaign. And there
you are. One of them has gone so
far that choking him off summarily
is out' of the question, and the other
is almost indispeslble. Ordinarily the
remedy for such a condition would b?
to throw down the bare and let 'em
flgfat it out, butwbe leaders are afraid
to do that without taking guaranties
from both sides, and as matters now
stand neither side is willing to make
committments of any kind. It is a
decidedly ticklish situation and it is
going ot.take all the diplomatic tact
Tusca and Mr. Charlie can command
to handle it. And in the end they
may fail
Unquestionably one & the factor*
that is contributing to make the Dem(Continued

Soldier From France With

At police court this morning Join

of being drunk last night. "What's
your right name?" tired the mayor.

question had been anticipated.
"Well, Morgan, were yon drunk last
night?" *
"I guess I was," Morgan started
drawing a long breath. "You see, my
mother Is dead and I just got back
from France where I've been for 19
months and for the time over here I
took a drink last night," Morgan got
out of his seat and came around the
long table to the mayor's chair and
stood before him, elaborating still further
on his stor yas he held attention.
"Settle with the chief," the mayor
broke in. "Five dollars fine." "But
mayor, I've just got back from France
and I work at the Koppers Plant
"Take your seat," the chief advised.
A nice line of loiterers failed to appear
this morning and forfeited $20
each. These persons were: J. B.
Toothman, Walter Langford, J. K.
Brown and one woman, Lena Fisher.
All were found at the Maaley hotel
last night
Ira Smith had a story all his own to
contribute to police happenings this
morning only his story was a new one
to the police. Mr. Smith said he ran
Into Dr. C. O. Henry last evening about
nine o'clock and Dr. Henry was much
excited. It appeared that during an
evening at the circus, officers missed
a little stage play In front of the Baptist
church. Along between eight and
nine an automobile drove up and wr^
stopped on the other side of the street.
A party of men alighted. Two of them
waited a fraction of a second and then
went at once another like two Wild
animals spilling blood all about. The
SiirI wan evidently arranged and was
over a girl according to Smith's report
Whether the girl was a product of
somebody's imagination or actually existed
seems to. bo shrouded"in mystery.
The fight lasted the space of five minutes
and when it was finished, the
licked belligerent was loaded back Into
the par and the other fellow walked
off down the street. Nobody had time
to find out who the parties were.
"Did you ever," the mayor remarked,
following the tale.
"New one on me," said Chief Moran.
Incidentally Nr. Smith appeared as
proxy for S. R. Brady who asked him
to step around to learn something regarding
a little card fonnd swinging
by a string to the back of his automobile
last night. "Sam straddled one
of your lines last night," explained
Smith" and he sent me In hero to

Text of His Speech to Officers
of Atlantic Fleet
Now Published.
[By Associated Press]
rwjAjSH INGHON, May U?Prmident
Wilson's htherto unpublished war instructions
to the officers of the Atlantic
fleet given in person on the quarterdesk
of the flagship Pennsylvania
on August 11, 1917 and bidding them
"throw tradition to the wind, strike
the word prudent from their vocabulary,
and do the thing that is auua.
clous to the utmost point of risk and
daring" were made public here today
by Secretary Daniels.
The President spoke as oommander
in chief of the navy and at a time
when the German submarine menace
was uncurbed. In laying the text of
his remarks before the Senate Naval
investigating eommitttee, Secretary
Daniels said they showed the "bold
and vigorous policy" the president bad
outlined for the navy.
A counter charge that establishment
of the North sea mine barrage was
delayed six months because of the
opposition of Hear Admiral Sims and
the British admiralty was made before
the Senate Naval nvestigatng committee
today by Secretary Daniels in
presenting the second part o? his
[ reply to the officers' charges that the
Narvy department had unnecessarily
prolonged the war through failure to
cooperate fully nt first with allied na|
val forces. The barrage, Mr. Daniels
added, was the most effective measure
that has been taken to check submarines
and was wholly an American
The secretary also charged that
Sims had attempted in his testimony
