Marlon. Ohio. July r Senator Ilar.1
inc. the republican candidate for the
preeldency. spent a quiet day to-da
receiving but few callers and deotinir
his time almoU exclusively to his cor
respondence and the accumulation of
data and his speech of acceptance
Immediately after hearing of the
selection of Governor Cox as the
democratic presidential nominee, how
ever, the jenator sent him n ".
ratnlntnrv toleitram. while in a
statement he said the Ohio sovnrnot
deserved the nomination but that the
selection would in no way alter Ms
plans for a "front porch" campalfrn.
Amplifying his statement later to
the newspaper correspondents. Sena
tor Harding said his purpose as well
as that of his supporters was to re
store tho Republican party to power
a.nd that the place of residence of the
nominees would have little Influence
on the outcome of tho fight. Kor that
reason the senator said there was no
necessity for ohanjrinir his campaign
While the actual writing of his
speech of acceptanco has not yet been
started, the senator said to-night he
expected to besln Its preparation
within n few days and have It finished
Jiv nhnnt .Tulv 18. He also said it
would be shorter in length than
speeches of similar character delivered
in the past. One of tho points which,
It was understood he intends to cm
nhislze particularly is the necessity
for tho restoration of party govern
ment in place of "onr.-man povcrn
ment." Plans for the official notification
ceremonies which will bo held hero on
July 22 are progressing: raplily. Na
tional Chairman Will Hayr. and T.
Ooleman Dupont, chairman of the sub
committee of the Republican national
committee named to arrange, details
of the notification, will confer with
thn Senator next Friday upon the mat
Instead of having tho notification take
place at the Harding home, however, ar
rangements have been mado for conduct
ing U la Garfield Park on the outskirts
ni Marior, so that : larger crowd could
be acc6mmodatcd. Thn event, according
to present plans, however, will be dtffer-
nt from those in previous, years in mat
it is to be made, tho official inauguration
of the front porch campaign. Delegations

visitors expected on that day
Mrs. Harding was to-day notified by the
Rev Red Fox Skiuhushu. chief of tho
federated tribes of Indians that both she
and the senator had been adopted by tno
organization and hereafter her Indian
name would be "Snow Bird " meaning
worker In a letter received by Mrs.

that the senator would be the "next great
white father of our native land ana ou
he honored a. the first lady of the land."

Tho holdup was one of many which
ave taken place on the roads in that
part of New Jersey leading to this city,

Although tho holdup of the three motor
vehicles took place about six o'clock In
