Mr. Iiryau stands chief in the nffcc tions of members of the Prohibition party," said Mr. Ilinshaw. "With the two old parlies standing silent, many believe he could lie elected as president on the Prohibition ticket." Reviewing other possibilities for the Prohibition nomination the party chairman said that Daniel A Poling of Boston stood net to Hryan. Mr. Itoling is associate president of the World's Christian Kndeavor Societies and was the keynote speaker at the lhltl Prohibition convention.

"We must place in the field a ticket of real presidential size and make a campaign thai will win the respect of all. thinking men and women." Mr. Watkins said that the prohibi tion question was not settled and would not be "until the machinery of the government is attached and the lawbreakers surrender uncondition ally." "The experiment of even partially enforced prohibition," he said, "lias I n si eminently sutisfaoiny and the demonstrations of morai and in dustrial improvements so ing that, millions of halter two opinions have been beyond a shadow of a don Mr. Watkins ran on the lion ticket in 1908 and If I eoliVlliC bi t W eel! oiivinced Prohibi ' as its -candidate for the viocHeciilemy He is professor of English in school at Germantowu, Ohi The Prohibition keynot. emphasized the interest of hihition party in other , nniroiitim: the country lb speaker the pro liiestions declared "the whole country th s res the that Hays Has No Reply To Request Of Cox; Will Answer Later lll .rll ft' ('OIJ'MHI s Julv - Chairman li iys ot IN" ,-.. ibocan national el iMitue ..mm !'" !

ON PROHBTITION On prohibition Mr. Watkins said: "When we inquire of the leaders of tho two major parties why an iron clad prohibition plank was omit ted from each of the party platforms, we are blandly informed that the ipiestioii is settled! Years ago when Re pleaded for such a plank, they -aid that it never can be settled, or, at any rate, it is too soon to make , lie fight Now it is too lute lo men tun the nubjeet' 1 wonder when would have been the psychological moment nhat the question of prohibi tion would have been strictly up-to-date. "This is a subterfuge, of course. Merely setting down a group of fig ures does not solve a problem and a declaration of war does uol coiiquel a nation: neither does the passage if a law. statutory or constitutional, settle any question Prohibition is not settled and will not bo settled until the machinery of government is attached and the lawbreakers sur render unconditionally. "Kvery refusal for law-enforcement simply encourages the wet forces to believe that the present wave of en thusiasm will recede and that the people will soon forget Then the fight can be renewed with some hope of success. Hence the silence of these platforms is a wet silence and will be so interpreted Neutrality is now an impossibility. One side or the other is defeated, and the parties that permit such a result have simply refused to take the oath of allegieuce.

The American defender Resolute won her first 'race of the 1920 series for the American cup. She must take two mure straight victories to prevent Shamrock IV from lifting the trophy. Taking the lead after the start, the Resolute held first place almost to the finish line. Within a mile of the finish, the Shamrock drew alongside, but the Resolute was granted a time allowance of seven minutes and one second and was safe. Had it not been for the time allow ance which the challenger had to give, she would have won, because she finished 18 seconds ahead of the defender. She crossed the starting line, however, 19 seconds ahead of the Resolute and so, boat for boat, by unofficial timing, lost the race by one second plus the seven minutes and one second she had to give the defender.
