P. Tired of Misrepresentation of Re publicans' rAttitudc Toward Suffrage Cites Party's Rec ord on Subject Marlon, O., July 14. Senator Harding In a statement to-night resented what he characterized as "persistent misrepresen tations" of the Republican party's attitude towards woman suffrage and said to that party belonged the credit for that reform ever having a chanco of success, He deplored, however, efforts to make political capital out of tho situation, and said ho hoped ratification would be ac complished before No-mber no matter whether a Democratic or Republican State was tho 36th to approve the suffrage amendment, "Kvcn If a Democratic State shall finish tho business, the record will still show that 3 Republican and seven Democratic pitates make up tho toll of honor," said .Senator Harding, "that Is good enough for us." "My patience Is sorely tested sometimes, over tho persistent misrepresentations of the Rcpuhllcan party its State governors and Legislatures, In this matter of worn lan's suffrage. Whether It emanates from mero mischief-makers, or from partisan desires cannot help resenting It. Wo must Insist on having fair treatment of the party without whore persistent sup port of the great reform would never have had a chance of success. 'A Republican Senate and a Republican House submitted the constitutional amendment for equal suffrage. A Demo cratic Scnalc having previously refused to suhmlt tt, twenty-nine Republican and six Democratic States have ratified It. Six Democratic States have rejected the ratification resolution and another, Louisiana, has Just refused to give it consideration. One Republican State Just one Delaware has rejected It. The first eight States to ratify were Republican States. "When In IfllP. the Republican Senate finally mustered the necessary majority to submit the amendment, there were M Republican and only 20 Democratic sena tors voting for it; but there were 17 Dem ocratic and only eight Republican sen ators voting against it. "Whether In the Senate or House, in Congress, or State Legislatures, the record shows that the Republicans have, been the persistent and effective sup porters of this measure. In nuch cir cumstances circumstances that are thoroughly' familiar to everybody it is simply ajnazing that Democratic managers should now have the audacity to be a-nsumlng that they are the friends of whom the cause must depend If It Is to succeed. "For myself and for the Republican Party. T earnestly desire that ratifica tion may bo accomplished In time to give the whole body of American wom en the ballot in next November. I a.m wearied with offorts to make, partisan advantage out of this situation. 1 hope there will be ratification, and I do not care a fig whether It js secured through a Rcpuhllcan or a Democratic State, I will rejoice if North Carolina will do It, or if Tennessee will do It, just a I would rejoice If a Republican Statn lid It." "There will be glory enough for the Republican party, no matter whether the .16th. Stale Is Republican or not. If any word of mine could possihly he Influen tial with any Republican In the North Carolina Legislature or in the Tennessee Legislature, tho word would, be 'vote for ratification and don't worry about who gels the credit of putting it over.' " Senator Harding spent the forenoon working on his speech of acceptance, but later entertained at luncheon A. P. Moore, publisher of the Pittebnrg (Pa.) Leader, and Robert F. Wolfe, publiiher of the Columbus CChlo) Dispatch and Journal, Later he conferred for nearly an hour with Mr. Wolfe, who, upon de parting, said he came only to make, a friendly call as he and tho senator had been personal friends for a long time. Col, Webb Hayes, son of the. former president, who saw the senator to remind him nf a promise made before his nomi nations! to speak in Fremont, Ohio, some time in September, According to an announcement to night, no callers are scheduled for to morrow, and tho senator plans to devote his attention principally to his speech which he now hopes to have completed by Saturday.

Must Give the Defender, Resolute, a Handicap of Seven Minutes and One Second New York, July 14. Time allowance, a vital factor to any yachtimajt, as sumed Importance to-night on the eve of tho llrst America's cup raco of 1 020, when It waa learned that. In the event of a clone finish to-morrow, the winner might not bo known before Friday. Announcement by the race committee that Shamrock IV, Sir Thomas Llpton's "mystery sloop," must glvo Resolute, the American .lofenuer, a handicap of seven minutes and ono .second because of the challenger's frreatcr spread of canvas, was coupled with another an nouncement that tho committed had grunted a request by the Irish yachts man's force for re-measurement of cer tain parts of the Shamrock's sialls. As It was impossible to put her can vas under tape lo-day, and the yachts will bo racing ol Sndy Hook to-morrow, the work may not bo done before Friday, a day of res! for the yachting tars. Therefore should the result of tO-mOrrOW'fl mnlnsf hnnr- Mn enHJ tho rival crows must remain In 3us- J i.unou uimi n.iay at toast, for any change In sail figures would bo reflected In time allowance. This change, 1kw cver, would be only a few seconds, ac cording to M. Do B. Parsons, chairman of tho raco committee, who added that the possibility of a reversal In the judges'Ndeclslon was almost negligible. To-night's announcement of the time allowance was made as soon as final figures on the measurement of the two yachts wore reported to the committee by ofilclal surveyors. The tentativo handicap was an upset to exports, who had pre dicted that six minutes or six minutes and a half would be about the figure. The reason for the handicap In favor ot the American boat Is that the Shamrock carries - aproxlmately 1,600 square feet more canvas than her rival, which gives her a decided advantage. The Shamrock's crew was kept buy by Captain William M. Burton bending on her original mainsail. This is tho cut of canvas that will bo used In to morrow's race, according to Charles K. Nicholson, designer of tho c'hallcngier, who besides having startled American yachtsmen by the Shamrock's daring and original lines has recently been experi menting with sails strange to nautical lore. The Resolutc's crew, under Uie dlrec (Jon of Captain Charles Francis Parsons, Dnd, was equally busy putting the finish ing touches to the sloop that wfll de fend the. hundred guinea cup for which the races will be resumed after a laps, of 1, years. Mr. .Parsons to-rViy took occasion to deny "erroneous reports that there was something wrong with the Resolute' plating." Her bronze plates are m a.s fine shape to-day as they were hen ih , ' w.. lUl on six years ago . he said. unit three out of five races needed to win the cun. the rare mmmiH.. . . . , mu wiiituuni;- ed to-night that to-morrow's, Saturday's -ii'i iwcsaays races would Ik- held as scheduled, hut that after that date the yacht3 would race, every day. This rule however win be subject to modification at tho request of either skipper who will have the privilege of requesting a day of rest between races. Final decision will lie with the committee. Although at this race five contests should he ended by Thursday of next week, there Is, of course, the 'possibility that light winds, preventing the yachts from finishing the six hour time limit, may result In races being declared off. The start of to-morrow's contest is scheduled to he made at noon from the Ambrose Channel Lightship. The course' "0 miles in length, will not be announced until just before the start, but the rules call for a windward and" leeward course for the first, third and fifth races with tho second and fourth to be over a triangular course.

He would not state whether E. M. Moore, his prc-convontlon campaign manager, would accept the position, but when the name of Chairman Cummlngs was. mentioned, he said that the national committee might insist that he would be of more use in the campaign as a speaker than as manager, and decide that Mr. Cummlngs should tako tlie stump.
