GOVERNMENT OWNER. SHIP IS DESIRED ? Coliseum, Chicago, June 10. Behind its schedule and still awaiting the outcome of the platform fight, the Republican na tional convention assembled to-day for its third session. . ,1 A tentative agreement has been reached by the convention managers not to hear any nominating speeches until the plat form has been presented. Under that arrangement, to-day's proceedings would be devoted entirely to "filling in" speeches. Almost at the moment tlie conven tion managers made this agreement they received word that the platform committee waa about to agree, that all (lunger of a split had been averted, and that the report would be presented to day. A fullfilment of this latter plan would bring on some of the nominating speeches to-day. At 11:20 o'clock Secretary Miller of the Republican national committee in ferred Governor Willis of Ohio who is to nominate Senator Harding, that the convention would proceed to nomi nating speeches while awaiting the re port from the platform committee..

CRANE WORRIED HARD FOR PARTY UNITY Plank on League of Nations Was Agreeable to Ogden Mills Sena- tor Lodge Was Not Inclined to Talk. Chicago, June 10. A leagtie of na tions plank drafted by Klihu Root wai accepted as a basis of compromise to day' by irreconcilables on the resolu tions suh-eommittee. ; The plank, which upholds the pni- first in the Senate and then in the con vention parleys. It is understood former Senator Crane of Massachusetts, a leader of the mild reservation group, first sug gested a compromise on the Hoot plank after he had been in cable consultation with its author. Discounting the possibilities of a blow up in the full resolution commit tee or on the convention floor, those on both sides of the treaty fight as serted that in their opinion another great party crisis wjiicli had threat ened for a time a repetition of the dis astrous division of 1012 had been avoided. After the agreement .Senator Borah said the unanimous compromise would be submitted to the full committee within an hour with every prospect of approval and that it waa planned to present the complete platform to the convention at 4 o'clock. The compromise plank was described by Senator Borah as establishing these three principles for which the irrecon cilables bad contended.: Omission of any pledge for ratifi cation. Commendation of the Senate for re fusing to ratify. , A statement that any future league must be in accord with American ideals and the principles of Washington. Senator Borah said that as the treaty plank had !een approved by Mr. Mills be presumed it was also accept able to former Senator Crane.

It was said these still was some pos sibility of a hitch and that the dan ger of" breaking open the treaty iiic tion on the floor of the convention had nt entirely passed. .All the members of the ith-eommit -tCe, however, seemed sat it-tied with the development and smilingly asserted that the peril of a party split was over. The agreement was reached at a con ference attended by Senator Lodge, Republican Senate leader, and after ward Senator Borah declared that Sen ator Lodge had 'taken stand opposed to ratification of the treaty and would state to the convention.

Seoul, Korea, June 10. Complaints that the police in Korea "sometimes go 10 aucn an extreme as to put the Kore ans to tornrre,"' have reached the gov ernor-general of Korea and Director Akaike of the police bureau has issued an order to the provincial governors to put a stop to it. I he director an nounced that it was with great regret tiiat he heard, now and then, a criti cism that "even of late, policemen often fail to behave properly toward the people." Referring to reports that the people are apt to think the police and torture are inseparable, the idea of the one being inevitably associated with that of the other," he pointed out inat even it torture were practised nly in a few cases it naturally discredited the whole system of the' police. He added: "As you know very well, in modern courts, judges rely on evidence rather than on the confession of offenders, and therefore torture has no place in our police system. I trust that in acting against any offenders you will do your best to collect evidence but. never at tempt to extort confesion from them by the bmtal means of torture."

Fisher, '10, president of the association during the past year, pre sided as toastmaster, and after an am ple banquet served by Mr. Rowen's effi cient corps of waitresses, he introduced his brother, Max Fisher, '0ft, who ex tended the welcome of the association to the entering class of 1020. Mr. Fisher characterized the association as essentially a progressive one, because women had voted at every one of the 23 previous meetings. The response of AlUo Poletti, president of the graduat ing class, was brief, but clever, caus ing much amusement. Athletic coach, Robert Ross, whose toast was "Atiiletics," commented on the splendid support which all the athletic teams had received during the vear, and suggested that a revival of the sliimnt athletic council, which was disbanded a few years ago, would be a great help to him and to the teams particularly in making out schedules of game.

There were then n2 pu pils in the high school and this year there were 4"."i. He enumerated the changes which have been made in the courses of study, including the addition of the commercial course, the teacher training course and the home e-inomic course. Commenting on the chansred social life of the school, he assured his audience that the students who used to have one reception a term, and march no and down the aisles of the study hall of the old high school, enjoyed it just as the students to-day enjoy their dances. He concluded with a grate ful appreciation of, the public support which had made possible all the in creases and improvement in the school, especially the teachers' salary increase. Principal Hunt announced that the Mathewson Improvement prize, in stituted several years ago by former Principal O. ). ' Mathewson for the boy in the gradual ino class making the greatest improvement mentally, physically and morally, in scholarship and in popularity among his class mates, was this year awarded to Or pheus Bir.zoero. .V the business meeting which followed, the report of the nominating committee, offered bv Alfred O'Connell, 'I si. was accepted and the following otlicer elected: Presi dent.

I., as supreme treasurer of the Xew England Order of Protection, was announced by Judge H. William Scott of Barre, Vt., supreme warden of the order, to-day. Mr. Sanborn, in a state. of collapse, ac cording to Judge ecoft, has resigned hi office, and George E. Howe of Quincy, supreme vice-warden, has been appoint ed to succeed him. Judge Scott said that the shortage, as uncovered to date, extended back i years.' Treasurer Sanborn, who is 7 years of age, has held the office 2D years. Further audit of the accounts is being made. As now disclosed, accord ing to the supreme warden, $51.1100 iu bonds and $.18,000 in cash is missing. Much of the losses, it was said, was traced to speculation in stocks. All of the bonds, and some of the cash, were located in brokers' offices. Efforts will be made to recover these funds, but no immediate action, criminal or civil, against Sanborn has been decided upon, because of the former treasurer's con dit ion, it is said. The stability of the order, which is a. fraternal organization with approxi mately 2S.0OO members in Xew Eng land, is not affected, it is claimed. Ixtssea are expected to be covered by a, bond of $100,000, and Judge Scott said the order had over 000.on0 of addi tional funds free and clear. The shortages, he said, were all found in the ai-counts which the treasurer kept at his home or with local banks at Newport, accounts in this city br ing intact. It was an objection by Mr. Sanborn to a decision bv a committee of the order to transfer some of the Newport funds to Boston accounts that caused the investigation. I his was , made by the finance committee of th order, which, made the report upon which Supreme Warden Scott said his statements were based. Sanborn had been treasurer all but four of the order's 33 years of cvist fin. He had been president of th Rhode Island Senate and a sicakcr of it House of Representatives. A son, Alvah It.
