Gov. James M, i''ox Qa.tuvd.iy before n host of enthusiastic arim'.rers gathtred from every State of the fnl'in ar.il from most of her island pos sesions, accepted the Democratic nomina tion for the presidency of the United States. In a speech, nhlch flayod the Republi can party platform aa one on which the ratification, that the substance was more Important than the form, and that the plafonn lays no bar to Interpret Ivo reser vations which Interfere with no vital prin ciple. Hut he stuck to Article Ten. P.edtictlon of taxation, the substitution of a tax on gross business for the excess profits tax, a square denl for both capi tal nnd labor, publicity for campaign con tributions, a thorough test of private ownership for railroads, curbing of profit eering, progressive farm measures, and the ratification of the suffrage amendment form part of the domestic program ho ad vocated. Joseph P. Tumulty, secretary' to Pres ident Wilson, occupied a seat near the speahor and gave every Indication of tho heartiest approval. Tie was generally un derstood that Mr. Tumulty had brought word to Mr. Cox that the President had rend the message and was highly pleased with It. Delegates were looking for the Presi dent to make known his attitude at en early date In some form of public endorse ment. It was equally evident from the attitude of the committeemen that even though some of them might differ with him on some of the details of the league hospital is Seeking CURE FOR CANCER Two Million Fund I Sought for Ile aenroh World-Itndlum to ne Used New York, Aug. ft. Evidence that per manent relief can bo brought to super ficial cases of cancer through the use of radium was offered yesterday by Dr. George Stuart Willis, In charge of the radium clinic at tho New York Post Graduate Medical School and Hospital, 20th street and Second avenue. The Post-Graduate, whose laboratories for research and cTicmlcal diagnosis are considered second only to those, of the Rockefeller Institute, depltc the fact that the Institution derives only 2n,noo a year from endowment. Is conducting a $2,000,000 endowment fund campaign. On the success or this drive depends In a large measure the future of the radium research work being carried on there to buy Jim.oon WORTH The hospital Is already specialising In the treatment of cancer with the radium needle, nnd with Increased funds, n part of which Is proposed 'to be spent In the purchase of one gram of radium valued at $120,000, It Is hoped that the wont can be carried on until permanent cures have been effected In even ndvnnced ensea, In tho proposed expansion of Its fight against cancer, the post-graduate Is or ganizing a milium research board, which has already begun negotiations for the purchae of tho gram of radium. Accord ing to scientists, the life In the gram or radium Is practically unlimited. The endowment committee of the post graduate, of which Dr. .Inmes V.

Expressing the belief that "the supreme l.ue of the century Is before us." and ; that the "nation that halts and delays Is playing with fire," he thrust the Leagim of Nations squarely Into the fore ground as an Issue with the challenge to the Republicans to let the voters decide "whether we shall, or shall not Join In this practical and humane movement." , Cox surprised everybody by deciding at i the last moment not to moke the two or three hundred word addition to his speech, which he had been 'holding back ' as a surprise to the Republican candl I date and which had been counted on to create a sensation. A drizzling rain begnn to fall shortly before noon, and threatened to dampen the thousands who had come to Dayton to witness the ceremonies, but It had no effect upon their enthuslnsm. The nomi nee's utterances on the League of Nations were received with a genuine response that left no doubt he had struck a popu lar note Technically, Cox took the position that the Important thing for the league was hearty support of practically every other els.nent of the Democratic party.

Paper suits, which are In vogue In Germany and Austria, will soon make their appearance In the United States and if Inquiries to the de partment of commerce can he taken as an Indication of the probahle demand, they may becomo even more popular In the lower-the-rost-of-llvlng campaign than was the lowly overall a short time ago. Cahle orders for samples of the suits have been dispatched by the department of commerce, It was announced to-day. and when the samples arrive they will be displayed not only in Washington, but also In the department's district and co operative offices located In Important cities of the country. Explaining Its orders for the samples the department issued this statement: "This action was taken because of the wide Interest created by the publication of a recent dispatch from England that a large quantity of such suits were on display In English stores. "The bureau of domestic and foreign commerce has received many inquiries from interested parties In the United States as a result of the publicity given the report. A good number of the in qulrles asked that they be furnished with some of the suits under the Impression that the bureau had a supply on hand. One man ordered 50. Several ordered from three to ten. Practically all stated the size desired. It Is understood that the suits are supposed to retail at about (O cents each." threaten.
