AGREES WITH C. O. P. SENATORS "The proposed League of Nations with out reservations as submitted by tho President to the Senate met with deserved opposition from Republican senators." said Governor Coolldge. "Our party by the record of Its members in tho Senate and by the solemn declaration of of its plat form, by performance and by promise, ap proves the principle of agreement among nations to preserve peace and pledges it self to the making of such an agreement preserving American Independence and rights as will meet every duty America owes to humanity. This language l pur posely broad, not exclusive, but inclusive. The Republican party Is not narrow enough to limit Itself to one idea, hut wide and broad enough to provide for the adoption of the best plan that can be de vised at the time of action." LAUDS HARDING "Tour presence tells me," said Governor Coolldgn in opening his address, "of a leader and a cause. A leader In Warren G. Tlardlng, the united choice of a united party, a statesman of ability, seasoned experience, a fitting representative of the common aspirations of his fellow citizens, wise enough to seek counsel, great enough to recognize merit, and in all things, a stalwart American. The cause of our com mon country, as declared In the platform of the Republican party, the defence of our Institutions from every assault, thn restoration of constitutional government, the maintenance of law and order, the re lief of economic distress, the encourage ment of Industry and agriculture, the en actment of humanitarian laws, the do. fence of the rights of our citizens every where .the rehabilitation of this nation In tho estimation of nil peoples, under an ngreomcnt, meeting our every duty to pre serve the peace of the world, always with undying Americanism; under such a lender, such a cause, 1 serve.

"Tho foregoing includes: Standard local or interline fares-, excursion, con vention and fares for other special oc casions, commutation and other mul tiple form of ticket, extra fares on lim ited trains and club car rates. "2 All excess baggage rates to be Increased 20 per cent. "3 Surcharge on sleeping and parlor cars to ho made GO per cent of the charge for space occupied either In parlor or sleeping cars. "4 Milk, increase all rates, both pas senger and freght samo total percen tage; applied to freight revenue. "5 Freight and switching revenues to be Increased sufficiently to yield the balance of the revenue required to meet the increased operating expenses due to tho labor board awarj In addition to tho percentage increaso already pro posed." INCREASES AS APPORTIONED Tho total Increa-ses from all sources of revenue In each of tho three railroad classification territories would corre spond to tho estimated increaso of wages In those territories and would ,be as follows: Eastern J31R.72f.53S. southern $69,900,493 and western f2T17,2Sl,fi.V). Under the executives' estimates the pro posed Increase In passenger rates would yield an annual return of 111,66S,PS2 in eastern territory; I2S.S26, too In southern and J32.332.S69 in western. Tho additional increase In freight rates would bo ten per tent In eastern territory yleldlr.- JlH.ft.'O.Ml; S.M pci cent In south ern territory yielding J33.79S.92il. and S.23 por cent in western territory yielding 5122, D31.2QS.

No further checks w'lth hl.i or John EaKen's name signed to thorn hove yet como to llgbt and probably all that he Issued havo hern offered nt the hank. Duarn was seen on the train going north Saturday night leaving hero at 10 o'clock bv two young men who knew him and who have been working on tho farm In New Haven next to the one whero Duane was employed for the past month. He showed there pfoplo a ticket for Burling ton and said he was going somewhere to get something to drink. It appears Duane had been overseas during the war and recently told Mr. Eagen he was going back to some coun try where he could get something to drink. The officers are keeping a sharp lookout In hopes to apprehend the man and havo got the officers on all this side of the State posted as to the case and Duane's appearance. They sre also all on the watch for tho man, what chances there may be for apprehondlnff him very soon are rather problematical, for he had a good start, Mr. Eagen states that Friday, the day preceding Duano's exploits, he had gone to Vergenncs and got a number of milk checks cashed, amounting In all to about $500 and that this money he had In the house Friday night and Saturday. He had counted the money In the presence of Duane Saturday. He thought the money was hanging around too handy and talked to Mrs. Eaeen about it and at his sugges tion she hid it In what she belUved a safe place, since which tlm ih money h" jpeen nepositea la the b-wiuk.

A heavy blanket of fog hung over Vho sea it Ambrose Channel lightship until within a few minutes of the start, totally blotting out tho excursion fleet and tho tall masted rivals that wero com ing out from their haven hehind Sandy Hook. The hoarse fog horn of the light ship was groaning out Its melancholy warning a few hundred feet away, hut in visible. Suddenly the breezo freshened and the fog organ sweeping out to sea. As the pall lifted, Shamrock IV with her tre mendous sails set loomed through and bore down on tho mark like a huge gray ghost. Resolute followed hard on her stern, and after a bit of jockeying about the lightship, they were off. down the Jersey coast. Resolute was at her old tricks on this, the windward log.

Again Captain Charlw FranclH Adams, 2nd held Resolute well up against tho wind, with the result that ho was1 able to makfs the mark with out a tack. Shamrock headed off more and was compelled to tack, which brought her around tho mark nearly two minutes behind Resolute. Tho challenger trained, on tho sec ond leg, but was still far behind when Skipper Adams straightened Resolute out on tho home stretch. Shamrock was closing up tho gap that separated her from Resolute on this leg when a freaky bit of weather blew up that fooled oven the sea soned Jersey skipper. Captain William P. Burton had On the challenger as an advisor, and robbed Shamrock IV of whatever chance she had of taking the lead and winning. SQUALL. THREATENS The sloops were running fast In a fifteen knot breezo when signs of a terrific squall becajne apparent. Sham rock hastily took down her club top sail and her largo jib top pail, .nd pre pared for rough weather. Resolute plowed ahead under full sail for a tlmo apparently bent on getting tn all the fast sailing she could before the squall struck. And the squall didn't strike! at least not with the In tensity Shamrock IV's skipper obvious ly had expected. There was a brisk blow for a few min utes and a short torrent of rain, which Resolute weathered without taking In any sails save her jib top sail. When It was over, Shamrock IV was unable to reset her rlub top sail and was forced to set a smaller top sail, while Resolute had her original rig intact. A brief calm intervened and then the wind picked up again. Shamrock caught it first and crawled slowly up until sho was nearly. If not fully, abeam of Resolute. But when the defender caught the wind, sh forged quickly ahead with her superi or rig, breaking out a balloon Jib top sail to aid her progress. ' Shamrock IV piled canvass on then, breaking out both ballooner and spinnaker, but the finish was close at hand and she was unable to close the gap. W. K.
