HARDING WELCOMES REFERENDUM ON LEA GUE Republican Candidate for President Advocates In creased Production to Cut the Cost of Living and Pleads for Oblitera tion of Sectional and Class Conflict. PROHIBITION GIVEN ONLY PASSING NOTICE Harding Promised Restor ation of Peace as Soon as a Republican Congress Should Send a Peace Declaration to a Republi can President. Marion, O., July 22.-The Republican campaign attaint full speed ahead to day with the formal notification here ' Warren (J. Harding, the party's nom inee for the presidency. The notification ceremonies, which brought t Marion most of the big .leader of the party and many thou sands of Harding enthusiasts, included an acceptance speech by Senator Hard ing interpreting the Chicago platform and declaring the principles on which be expects the campaign lo be fought out. The acceptance speech came at the end of a long program in which high pitched enthusiasm ruled' the day a the visiting delegation marched on the Harding residence in unbroken succes sion to be received by the candidate and to pay their respect in tbe coin of tumultuous political emotionalism. At T o'clock in the morning a noUy aggregation of Marion citizen. - that looked like half the town, led off the demonstration that set a irnrrk fwr the out-of-town folk to shoot at. To their bowling acclaim, the senator played the leading part in a flag-raising, pull ing the stars and stripes to the top of the weather-beaten McKinley flag-pole ent here a few days ago from Can ton. Delegation after delegation, with bands blaring and colors flying, fol lowed up to the Harding front porch at 30 special trains and thousand of automobiles unloaded their contribu tion to the notification crowds. Not content with showing themselves to the nominee, they re-formed and marched and counter-marched through the city in a riot of noise and color. Marion was dressed within an inch of its life for ita debut in the great af fairs f the nation and was bubbling over with eagerness to make the big day a smashing success. Patriotic frills end flounces draped the city. Business was adjourned and partisanship wae forgotten as Republicans and Demo crats joined in acknowledging the hon or that had come to one of their rieighhors. From the senator's home down to the heart of the business section a lane of tall while pillars formed a spotless court of honor to mark the route of the paraders, and along the way scarcely a window was without it portrait of the Republican candidate. Flags and bunting were displayed in carnival pro fusion In every street, Tain staking ar rangements had been made to provide Juncheon for the crowds, and impro vised sandwich stands were every where. Profiteering had been put un der the ban by agreement of Marion's business men and many bousewives bad laid in an extra supply of food to make sure that no one went min er v. Most of the public counters were under the supervision of churches. One of the delegations to who coming Senator Harding looked forwsrd with keenest anticipation wa a bras band from Caledonia, his bovhood home. It bad been pieced together by his asso ciates of the days when he played the trombone, and had been practising ever ince the Chicago convention on old favorites to stir the memory of the nominee. The purple, white and gold of th woman suffrage cause early made it appearance -in the gathering crowds but a plan of the women to picket the notification ceremonies was abandoned. During the morning the senators had en appointment to aeceive a delegation from the national woman's party, who wanted him to aid in securing favor able action by the Tennessee lcsrila ture on the suffrage amendment. He said he would be glad to listen to their request but would hae no immediate reply to make Last niiiht he i a similar dele gation from the National American Woman's Suffrage association and aft erward sent a telegram to Mrs. Carrie (bapman Calt. head of the aocia tiofl. derlp.rin that if any Republican member .-f the legislature aked his .pinion he would advise that the amendment W ratified at once. The woman's psrty group led by Alii Paul, declared" themclvc plracd at b' ation. bm decided to present their pi t it ion a they had planned. A feature of the dav was lurw heon Chautauqua t grounds chosen for the notification ceremonies. Will H. Hays,' the national chair man, was the presiding officer at the notification, for which the city had re fitted its chautauijua pavilion. The pro gram included an invocation by Bish op VV. F. Oldham of the Methodist Kpiscopal church, the formal notifica tion speech by the Senator Lodge of Massachusetts, chairman of the noti fication committee, Senator Harding' response, and a benediction by Father Joseph M. Denning, pastor of St. Mary's Catholic church here. A glee club came from ' Columbus to lead the assemblage in singing "The Star Spangled Banner" and "America." Delegations Come Thick and Fast. , The Marion boosters cheered the sen ator until he consented to make a short talk, thanking them for their show of, "neighborly interest" and enthusiasm. "I am going to make my speech later in the day," he said, "but 1 cannot let you go without saying how deeply I am touched by this tribute from the home folks." Members of the Hamilton cluh of Chicago came up singing 'Wood Morn ing, Mr. Harding," fashioned after the armv marching song "Wood Morning, Mr. Zip," and presented the candidate a resolution giving him honorary mem bership in the club. In response, he declared there ought to lie a similar Republican organization iu every great city. "We do not give, enough attention to our polit ics," he said, "for good gov ernment ought to lie the first busines of every citizen. And I think we do not pay enough attention to party, in this country we have bad too much of the nils of the individual and not enough of the rule of the great masse. I am especially proud to be a member of your club because it bear the name of the man who, to my mind, was the' greatest constructive American states man that ever lived." Long before noon the delegates be gan to tramp on one another's heels, and the candidate had to abandon hope of shaking hands with all of those who came. He took his position on the steps of his porch and smilingly waved acknowledgments as the howling throng marched past. ' He got an extra round of applause from one delegation when he led Mrs. Harding down the steps and presented her as "the head of this family." One of the shows of the procession was the American Republican club of Pittsburgh in flowing black capes and high grey stove-pipes and carrying star spangled, parasol. Harding's Acceptance Speech. In formally accenting the nomina tion. Senator Harding gave a pledge of atif ntinnal iroverninent, adminis tered by party and not by individual and based on national ramrr wiu world ideals. He welcomed a popular referendum on the league of nations, advocated inereiLsed production to cut the high cost of living, pleaded for obliteration of sectional and class conflict, and de clared for industrial peace "not forced but inspired by the common weal." Prohibition he gave oniy a pacing notice, saying that despite divided opinion regarding the 18th amendment and the statutes -enacted to rqake it operative, there must be no evasion in their enforcement. He declared it hi "incere desire" that ratification of the suffrage amendment be completed to permit women to vote thi fall in every state. Reviewing and commending briefly many other planks of the party plat form, the candidate declared lor col lective bargaining for farmers, repres sion of the disloyal, "generous federal co-operation in rehabilitating tne rail roads, intelligent oenaiion oi me cur rency, enlargement of the government aid in reclamation, a genuine expres sion of gratitude to veterans of the World war and maintenance of an am ple navy and "a small army but the bet in the world." In his promise of "a party govern ment," Senator Harding reiterated his belief that the vice-president should have a part in the affairs of the cjiief executive's official family and declared there also should be "a cordial under standing and co-ordinated activities" betiween the executive and Congress. "No man," he said, "is big enough to run this great republic. Our first com mittal is the restoration of representa tive popular government, under the constitution, through the agency of the Republican party." Promising ses'orauon oi peace as soon as a Republican Congress should send a peace declaration to a Repub lican president for his signature, the candidate assailed the league covenant as brought home by President Wilson, but declared the war sacrifices would be "in Tain if we cannot acclaim a new order, with added security to civiliza tion and peace maintained." "We Republicans of the Senate." be continued, "when we saw the structure of a world supergovernment taking visionary form, joined in a becoming warning of our devotion to this repub lic. The Republicans of the. Senate halted the barter of independent Amer ican eminence and influence. "We do not mean to bold aloof. We do not mean to shun a responsibility of this republic. We were resolved then, even a we are to-day, and will be to morrow, to preserve this free and inde pendent republic. Let those now re sponsible, or seeking responsibility, propose the surrender, whether with interpretations, apologies, or reluctant reservations from which our right are to be omitted. We welcome the ref erendum to the American peple on the preservation of Amerii-a. .

On the same train and with the same object there will be a British mis sion headed by Ixrd A hereon, British ambassador at Berlin. General Rad clifte and Sir Maurice Hankey. These missions, it is learned, leave with' full authority to ay to the Poles that what ever aid is needed, whether military or financial, or in the nature of supplies, will be forthcoming if the bolshevik! persist in a design to march into distinctively Polish territory. It U stared unofficially, but on high authority that this mean help for Po land in the form of troops, if they are required.

UPTON'S YACHT IN DRYDOCK To Have - the Underbody Cleaned Before Friday's; Race for the Cup RESOLUTE PRAISED BY THE BRITISH American Boat's Victory Was Due to Time Al lowed as Handicap Sandy Hook, X. J., July 22.-The cup challenger Shamrock IV was towed to the Staten Island .Shipbuilding Co.' plant early to-day to be drydocked and have her underbody cleaned in prepa ration for the fourth race with the American defender Resolute , to-morrow. The contest yesterday, in which the two sloops went over the 30-mile course in exactly the same elapsed time, has added marked interest to the contest to come. Captain Burton, Designer Nicholson and Claude Hickman of the Shamrock were especially pleased with what they agree was a wonderfully fine race yes terday, e veil though the challenger Unit it on time allowance. "Reaolute is a tine boat," said Mr. Nicholson, "and Herresholf designed a craft that goes better to windward than Shamrock. On the run home be fore the wind yesterday the sloops raced along beam to beam as if they had been locked together. It was a fine race even if we did lose it." The race to-morrow will- be over a triangular course 10 miles to a leg and it ia in this contest that Shamrock is expected to force the Resolute to the limit as the legs of the race will be reached, at which point of sailing the Lift on sloop has shown to her best advantage. Yachting sharp declare that Sham rock can outreach Resolute in any kind of wind, but whether she can out reach her sufficiently to overcome the handicap of seven minute and one sec ond is a riddle which, if answered cor rectly, will also answer .that other question, " Will Lipton win the cup?' The Resolute remained at her moor ings to-day in the horseshoe, where an inspection was made of her rigging and sails. SHAMROCK FAIRLY CLEAN are dis- be the best paid in the world, the can didate emphasized the responsibility of such service and added: "The government might well stamp railway employment with the sancti ty of public service and guarantee to the railway employe that justice which voices the American conception of righteousness on the one'band and assures continuity of service on the In his reference to prohibition and law enforcement he said: "People ever will differ about the wisdom of the enactment of a law there is divided opinion regarding the 18th amendment and the laws enact ed: make it operative but there ran be no difference of opinion about hon est law enforcement. Mollification or repeal is the right of a free people, whenever the deliberate and intelligent public sentiment commands, but per version and evasion mark the paths to the failure of government it -elf."
