PALMER GEORGIA'S DELEGATION WHEN There Were Three Chief Contests Before Conven tion When the Day's Ac tivities at San Francisco Opened To-day. McADOO SUPPORTERS STILL INSIST UPON PUTTING HIM UP The "Bone Dry" Issue Con . tinues to Be One of the Matters of Important Consideration, - With the Result Still in Doubt. Fan Francisco, June 25. First guns of (he Democratic convention were to tie fired to-day when the national com mittee are to draw up the temporary roll of delegates. Three contests had been called to the committee's atten tion but only one of them, that involv ing efforts to give Senator Reed of Mis souri a seat with the delegation from that state, promised morethan routine interest. Only one contest, that from Georgia, has been officially filed with me committee. :,. The Georgia contest results were ex pected by party leaders to be settled in favor of delegates friendly to the candidacy of Attorney General Palmer for the presidential nomination, the de cision carrying with it confirmation of Clark Howell as rational committee man from that state. There appeared "to he no question as to the result in what was described as a "clear case" where statutory provision in the state and party rules dictated the course of the committee. The Reed case may prove more diffi cult to deal with. An effort to place the senator on the floor of the convention, although the Missouri state convention rejected him as a dclegate-at-large, u expected, and because of his atti tude toward the administration during Senate battles over the peace trearty, it said to be possible that strong re sistance would be met before the com mittee. The third contest from Oregon was not regarded as a serious case and wight not, it was said, materialise at all. In fact, national committee offi cials did not know before they assem bled to examine credentials, what sp pes ranee was to be made in any of the contest cases. Overnight developments showed two matters that nave been in a nebulous state to be approaching more definite shape. These were the mysterious and persistent , boom for nomination of William G. McAdoo even against his flat declaration last he was not a can didate, and the conflict as to a prohi bition enforcement plank in the plat form. McAdoo adherent were said early to-day to be shaping their plana to withhold- his name from the balloting throughout the early stages. They have learned . that the former secretary of the treasury still had a, strong follow ing; but are said to feel that, in view of his attitude, it would not be es pedient to present his name unless the eipec.ted deadlock between the leading randidates, .Palmer and ttovrnor lox Of Ohio, should develop. In that event there appeared to be little doubt that McAdoo would be put forward to break the blockade with the assurance of con siderable strength at the start. His friend are said to have put their heada together to formulate plans of this nature and map out strategy of the subsequent campaign to obtain for him two-thirds majority on which Demo cratic nominations must rest. On the prohibition enforcement ques tion, heretofore Hie most prominent subject of discussion in convention cir cles, there developed yesterday a sud den movement to ignore the question entirely in the platform. Suggestions of this" nature came to Cliariman Cum mings of the national committee from ramps representing various shades of opinion changing from bone-dry to al most as completely wet. These fcelors toward a harmony pro gram were not clear enough to-dsy among workers for vatioiia residential candidates. The first of the large dele tions will arrive within the next two day and preparations for missionary work among the members were in prog ress. Various combinations for the ticket were being talked over with a view to arranging to secure for this or that aspirant votes to be brought to l is standard through a pre arranged agreement as to the vice presidency. None of these tentative tickets ap peared, however, to have more behind it than the speculation of campaign managers. Gerard Would Dodge "Wet" Issue. -lames V. Gerard, former ambassa dor to tiermaay and mentioned a a candidate for the presidential nomi nation, arrived here last night.

TO GAIN EXPECT END OF STRIKE- ACTION Promise f Early Decision by the Railway Wage Board Effective STRIKERS RETURN ' AT WASHINGTON Interstate Commerce Com mission Closely Watch ing Eastern Roads Washington, D. C, June 25. Repre sentatives of the railroad unions ex pressed belief to-day that the promise of early action by the railway wage board on wage demands would tend to sqifil h further strike disturbances. With the return to work at midnight of practically all striking yardmen at the Jfotomac yards here, railroad om cials announced that they would be able to handle freight to and from the .South without delay. The walk-out they said, had caused congestion at the gateway and the rerouting of cars through other points. At the same time the interstate com merce commission is watching the strikes in the eastern railroad centers being particularly concerned as to the etteet of the walkouts on its receht ef forts to relieve freight congestion and to move coal to the eastern points. RULLDOZING TACTICS BY RUMANIA Much of the Carpet Bagging System of Post Civil Days -in United States ia Evident. Bucharest, June 24. That the car pet bagging system know n to the south after the Civil war has been applied by the Rumanians in their new nrov inces of Besaarabia, Bukovina and Transylvania, is the burden of com plaints that the minority population of these provinces are sending to the allied governments. It is charged that these provincea have been loaded up with dishonest civilian officials, who work in connection with the armies of occupation to bulldoze and terrorise the local inhabitants. It is even charged that the wealthier landowners are being arrested in the, hope that they will either desert their lands or sell their homes far under the real value. According to Dr. Nicholas Lupu, re cently minister of the interior, llie army of occupation in these provinces should long since have been removed. "After four years of war soldiers re spect the rights of nobody," he said. In Bessarabia, where the army is kept as. a protection against the'bol sheviki, the charges of mal-administ ra tion have been many. It is stated that here the army has also prevented the ju-t operation of the law providing for the division of the land. . The gravest charges come from Transylvania and the Hungarian fron tier, where the nationality bitterne-s has long been deep. On those mem bers of the Hungarian nobility who have persisted in remaining on their estates are quartered a half a dozen Boldiers or policemen who practically hold them prisoners. While they are able to operate their estates, they are not permitted to receive visitors or mail eTcept by permission of these sol diers. Many instances are cited whee the head of the house has been arrest ed and so harrassed that he had to flee, leaving bis home in the possession of his wife and daughter, much after the manner of the Russian and Polish landholders during the early stage's of bolshevism. There are many cases cited where thoroughbred horses have been stolen and later entered into the races in the different cities of Rumania. There have been numerous reports that the Transylvanians hope to find a way out of their difficulties by con verting themselves into a small re-, public, if later circumstance permit, or else of again joining themselves to the Hungarians. - It is charged that the land is being taken from the rightful owners and divided up among the Rumanian car pet baggers, who in turn sell it to the Rumanian peasants of the country.

YALE FRESHMEN A LENGTH AHEAD They Hit Up a Terrific Stroke and Passed Harvard Freshmen in ' Last Half Mile. Regatta course, New London, Conn June 20. "-Yale crews scored a double victory on the Thamea river course th morning in the preliminary races of the 42nd dual regatta with Harvard. The blue blades of the Eli oarsmen swept the Yale shells across the finishline of both the freshman and junior varsity two-mile races well ahead of their Crimson rivals. The Yale adheVents, as a result, were predicting a clean sweep by a third victory in tne .tour-mile varsity con test scheduled for late this afternoon The winning of the New Haven col lege crews, while decisive in each race was nob achieved without a bitter struggle, for in both races the Harvard eights jumped into the lead at the start and fought gamely to maintain their advantage until the contests had progressed well toward the finish nags, It was in the final stretches of the races that the superior power and row ing form of the Yale oarsmen began to count and once well to the fore with the finsh flags in sight the Eli eighti rowed rapidly to victory. Weather and water conditions were extremely favorable for fast time and the shells swept down the Thames river under the power of the sturdy sweep swingers and wind and tide at exceptional pace. These conditions were reflected m the times, lale winning the freshman contest by about a length in 10 minutes three and three-fifths seconds, while the Cambridge crew trailed home in 10:05. In the junior varsity, Yale's margin was close to a length and a half, with the official time announced at Yale 10 minutes and six and three-fifths seconds. Harvard 10 minutes and 10 seconds. -The waters of the Thames were flow ing fast toward the ocean when the freshman crews took their places at the. starting flags at Bartlett's cove, a few minutes before the scheduled time for the start. At 10:56 Referee Neikle john shouted the command to go and Harvard s yearlings caught the water first with a fortv-four stroke, Yale was a beat slower. In choppy water and a cloudy sky the racing craft, fairly leaped down the river. Both eights were rowing a :it beat at the half-mile with Harvard leading by a scant quart er length. At the mile the positions were reia tively the same. In the fiual mile Har vard endeavored to increase It ad- vantaaes but Yale, with plenty of re serve, quickly acepted the 'challenge and overtook Jhe Crimson,- winning without apparent effort by a shells lentth. Ihe wind had died away somewhat before the junior varsity eights got the starting signal, at ll::4, with the sun breaking through the grey clouds. The start of the second race waa similar to that of the opening event Both strokes hit up a stroke well into the forties and for a few lengths the prow of the Harvard shell showed in front. Then the drive of the Yale blades he gan to count and slowly the blue cratt slid to the front, never to be headed. At the half-mile flags, the Klf shell waa fading Ity a third of a length and at he end of the nrst mile had increased the distance to a scant half length. Here Harvard made its bid for an even break in the forenoon races, and hv a sutaineLpurt forced the Crim son tipped bow almost to even terms with the speeding Mis. Ihe aie jun iors ouicklv scetiled the danger. , With additional heave and beat, the blue hell forged to the fore, and, with their ivals fast tiring under the strain of heir previeus efforts the result of the idlest was quickly decided in me final half-mile.
