' San Francisco. June 23.Rumhlings .of Democratic discord over the prohi bition issue became hourly more omi nous to-day as delegates and party chiefs arrived in increasing numbers for the national convention. Hope that the gathering. storm might spend it self behind the closed doors of the plat form committee virtually was ahan- doned by the leaders and they pre pared to face an outbreak of tempes tuous debate on the floor of the con vention itself. Such-a development it was agreed everywhere would hold majiy dramatic possibilities, including a further com " plication of the uncertain outlook as to the presidential nomination. , Already the overshadowing issue in pre-convention conferences, the ques tion of a platform declaration against the present "bone dry" law, almost took the whole atage for itself to-day as the gathering delegates heard of Postmaster General Burleson's nn , nouncetnent for a modification of the , Volstead act. By many accustomed to regard the postmaster general as a political spokesman for the White House, the development was accepted as a warning of which -way the wind of administration influence would blow Others among the party leaders re fused to take that view, but no one here assumed to know with certainty how the sentiments of President Wil son might be in accord with those of Mr. Burleson. What everyone here does know, how ever, is that both sides of the con troversy are cementing their lines and bringing their heaviest artillery for a finish fight. After many conferences in an effort to lay a basis for har mony. Homer S. Curoniings, the na 'tional chairman, said to-day it seemed to be a "fair bef that the question would be taken to the convention floor for a settlement regardless of what decision was made in the platform com mittee. Closely intertwined with the prohi bition question is the problem of ae lertitig a nominee in accord with the platform as finally agreed on, and among many of the practical politi cians there is a feeling that the two decisions must be settled virtually at one stroke. So the pleas of candi ilttes' managers are failing on daf car for the present, while leaders get their hearings on the more immediate question of a hone dry or a beer plat form. The lescue of nations disagreement, along with several other disputed plat form issues, has followed the question of candidates into stemporary eclipse. Among most of the leaders it is agreed that whatever trouble develops over the treaty will be only a drop in the bucket Compared to the prohibition fight. "Bone Dry" Claim Majority. 'Leaders of the bone dry forces were confident to-day that they would com mand a god majority in the platform committee where each state has only ne member and could keep out of the committee report any declaration for a change in the present law. With this view mot of the campaign mnsger privately agreed, nut they declared that when an appeal was taken to the convention itself the vote would tell much .different story. The large states, it was pointed out. while hav tng only one vote apid-e in th com mittee, will have a much greater voice in the whole body of delegates who irake up the final court of apsals. And swul of the Urgent delegations are minted s for -.ipport by the advo cate of a brer plank. A coajj ltrting feature of a conven tion floor fight would !e the nmt rule, tinder which many state delegation re instructed to vote as a body. It was suggested to-day. however, that Vere wet be a p neral s Freemen) to lt each dfleeaie be counted aceordmg he. probably would find pitted against him strategists and orators of the first rank. W. Bourke Cochran of Xew York was mentioned as one of those who might be asked to match wits and eloquence with the 'Nehraskan m the debate. Although Mr. Bryan is expected to make a fight also against the adminis tration treaty plank, the general belief of his friends here is that he will re serve his greatest effort for the pro hibition problem. Senator Carter Glass of Virginia, who is credited with hold ing President Wilson's commission to write the administration league of na tions plank, is the leading candidate for chairman of the platform commit tee and the general prediction to-day was that he would be chosen to that position with little opposition. Chairman Cummings said to-day that it still was - an open question whether the adaption of the platform or the choice of a nominee would come first on the convention program. The prospect of a prolonged right in com mittee over prohibition and perhaps some other subjects has led to a move ment to go ahead with balloting while the committee aits. Such talk as there wan to day re garding candidates seemed to strength en the prospects of a deadlock for sev eral ballots. Some of those in the in ner circle of plans said it was hard to conceive how the two-thirds necessary to nominate could be brought into one column for two or three roll calls at least, and they pointed out, that if two or three candidates divided the hulk of the voting strength among them, favorite sons and dark horses would be encouraged to prolong the deadlock by holding to their balance of power. In the generally accepted view, ine withdrawal of William G. McAdoo will operate to make a deadlock more like ly bv distributing more or less widely' the strength which had been lined up behind htm. Some thought, however, that a considerable following would vote for him despite his public with drawal, while the mqst enthusiastic of the McAdoo supporters still were predicting that he would be the nora- nee. f GALLS M'DOO HANDICAPPED CONTINUOUS FIRE t .

COMMITTEE Leaders of Republican Party Expressed Satisfaction Over Personnel of the Committee. Washington, D. C, June 23. Repub lican leaders generally expressed ap proval to-day of the personnel of the executive committee which will con duct the party's presidential campaign. Twenty-one members, including seven women, will constitute the committee, and the names of 20 of these were an nounced last night by Chairman Will Hays of the national committee. One name, said to be that of a. national committeeman, waa omitted because Mr. Hays had not had time to com municate with the appointee. Mr. Hays heads the executive com mittee, which includes former Senator John W. Weeks of Massachusetts. Leaders claimed that every group of the party was represented in the com mittee membership and that this amal gamation insured harmony within and a solid front against the. Democrats. The nominee, .Senator Harding, to day was engaged in adjusting his af fairs in Washington so he might leave early in July for his home in Marion, O.

At times the shooting reached the intensitT of volley. The malcontents today were charge of most of the city and it even was impossible to Icarn the number of casualties from the authorities. Re ports were in circulation that several bodies have Wen seen lying in Bishop street, but any attempt toget to Bish op street to verify the reports was virtual suicide. The military remained passive, the troops watching forces of armed men pass through the side streets to their battle positions. 'onsiderable fighting occurred on the waterfront, which was cut off from the rest of the town. The central police station was isolated from the other stations and the police vir tuallv were liesiegcd, It was rumored that a force of Sinn Feiners was gathering outside the city and also that the Irish volunteers were about to take a hand. Xo more troops had arrived in l.ondonderry up to this afternoon, it was reported, however, that an additional battalion had de trained at t olerain, about 30 miles northeast of this citv, and was march ing in to escape the danger of its train being wrecked. As many persons as can do ao are leaving Londonderry. Lincoln, Neb., June 23. Discussing the possible Democratic candidates for presidency, William J. Bryan, in an article in his newspaper, the Commoner declares, William (I. McAdoo is handi capped as a candidate "by his clime re lationship with the president;" while President Wilson himself, he says, need not be considered." Asserting that Mr. McAdoo also is handicapped by "his silence on the peace treaty," Mr. Bryan declares Mr, McAdoo is tins hie to call to his sup port "those to whom the president's candidacy appealed with special force,' 1 1 .li. anu msi ne would rurnlHfi an easy mark for all of the president's ene miea. The article says, however, that Mr. , McAdoo has considerable strength among wage earners. Referring to President AVilson. Mr. Bryan says that "while vague hints and suggestions have been thrown out occasionally no one. claiming to apeak for the president or near enough to him to express his wishes has announced his candidacy." Herbert Hoover is eliminated from the list of candidates whom Mr. Bryan considers "available, while Senator YALE HONORED PERSHING. Conferred LL. D. on the A. E. F. Com mander To-day.
