S ist ; SLOWDEN DECLINES I NAVAL PORTFOLIO s ACTION MAY RESULT IN SOUTH ERN MAN'S LANDING IN HARD. ING'S CABINET. St. Augustine, Fla.-President-elect Harding's cabinet perplexities were L increased by the refusal of Frank O. - Lowden of Illinois and chief candi date for the Republican nomination º against Wood and Harding, to enter 1 the public service at this time in any capacity. This applies to the job of secretary I of the navy which Mr. Harding urged the Illinois man to take, as well as I to ambassadorships which it had been a rumored Mr. Lowden might be willing I to accept. In making this announcement Mr. I I Harding said that he was sorry and a expressed high regard for Mr. Lowden. 3 He said he had wanted him in the I a cabinet. I I There are those who see in this i move a far seeing strategy oi the part I a. of Mr. Lowden to make nrmself avail- 4 able again for a Republican presiden- I a tial nomination four years hence. I A. T. Hert of Kentucky is here and a his friends intimate that he might I I be prevailed upon to take the navy or 1 some other cabinet place. 1 The chances for a Southern man in I the cabinet have undoubtedly been I strengthened y the defection of Mr. Lowden.

The appointment of a South- v em man to the cabinet would not be a s recognition of the South, it says, but C "a recognition of the man appointed."

They are: August Der tn chey, vice president; Willard Titus, ag John Fleming, James Mclllwraith and Hert Maxwell, Executive Board mem [r. bers. All were sentenced to jail for 3d one year. n. The calling of a strike in two mines, ie in violation of an injunction caused the contempt proceedings. The strike is resulted from a controversy between it the miners' union and mine owners II- over the age of a young miner named n- Mishmah. The question of his age af fected his rate of pay. Id The injunction was issued last Sep ht tember by Judge Curran, forbidding or union officials from calling a strike.

Hasson. officers of a Crowberg lo le cal union, tried recently for contempt al of court, were found not guilty by io Judge Curran. They were charged h- with fining two union members who a appealed a case to the Industrial at Court. Judge Curran held it was not proved that the members had been' s, fined. e In his decision Judge Curran said ie that the Mackie strike was called to )f evade the Industrial Court law. How at and the other defendants, the judge e said, had violated the injunction and tt all are guilty of contempt of court. e "Have the defendants any reason If to state why they should not be sea y tenced"' Judge Curran asked.
