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
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
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

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
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

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
"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. .

Race for the Cup
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

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
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

the railway employe that justice

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

public sentiment commands, but per

Board Begins Hearing on
Request of Expressmen

Chicago, July 22. Heads of the
great railroad brotherhood this morn
ing were divided in opinion on ., the
course of action which should be pur
sued as to acceptance of rejection of
the $1500,000,000 wage increase grant
el by the railway labor board.
At the close of an all-night session,
at which no agreement was reached on
a plan for concerted action, six of the
brotherhoods, in addition to tne mas
ters mates and pilots of America, had
expressed their decision as favorable
to acceptance or tne awara in us en
tirety; seven favored referring the
question to the unions with recommen
dation that it. be accepted; two more
were undecided, and one, the Brother
hood of Railway Telegrapher, had de
cided to reject the award and was
said' to be preparing for a strike bal
lot. Efforts to compromise the attitudes
of the various brotherhood was un
derway thi morning and hope for a
report by the union chiefs to the 1,000
general "chairmen was entertained. It
was pointed out, that, should no agree
ment be reached. by the head of the
brotherhood, each organization might
take individual action on the award
Despite the difference of opinion
among the leaders, the union chief re
iterated today that there wa no dan

strike. They also were inclined to be
little reported efforts of members of
the Chicago yardmen's association. 180
of whom struck in Chicago yesterday

The railway labor board, which yes
terday declined to reopen the rail
way wage cases at the request of the
brotherhood and expressed the opin
ion that it had done all possible in the
rase of the railroad employes, to-day
began hearings on the application for
increased pay of 70,000 employe of
the American Railway F.xpress Co.,
who were not included in the railway,
men's award.
The board declared that reopening
the investigation would delay the back
pay award, which they believe the
worker should receive in their August
first pay envelopes. The award was
made retroactive to May 1, and the
back pay is estimated to average about
f-.'OO apiece fori the workers benefited
by the increases. ' .
