COX DEFENDS CHARGE - New York, Aug. 27. Governor Cox, Democratic presidential nominee, indi cated here to-day that he would make further "exposes'' of Republican cam paign funds within a week. , Pausing here for scarcely more tahn an hour,, in his way from Pittsburgh to New Haven, Governor Cox conferred with party leaders on the effects of his speech in Pittsburg last night, at which he preseted information bearing on his charge that Republicans were raising a $15,000,000 fund to 'buy"' the presi dency. Then, just before his train pulled out, lie received newspaper men. Asked if he would press his charges further, Mr. Cox replied: "Yes. You will have new leads in a week, I think." Referring to an announcement from Will H. Hays, chairman of the Re publican national committee that in dividual campaign contributions would be restricted to ?2,00O, Mr. Cox said: "Mr. Hays knows that such a state ment isn't true. The methods used by the Republicans are to get some big fellow to give $20,000 or $25,000, after which 10 or 24 dummy names are writ ten down as contributors on the par tys books, no one needs to worry about my not naming the sources of the funds which I have accused the Republicans of raising." . Mr. Cox said that if the Senate com mittee investigating campaign funds really wished him to appear before it in Chicago he would do so. "The committee," he added, "now has the necessary leads. If it wishes to investigate, it will call in Republican state leaders and learn from them who the country and city leaders are and thus get all the details. I have every confidence that the committee will go to the bottom of my charges. "A year ago I said that the Repub licans were going back to the meth ods of Mark Hanna and that they would be defeated with their own mon ey. This still is my belief." When Governor Cox was asked about reports concerning Democratic national finance of a year ago,, he said. " "I came on board the Democratic ship July 7. I know nothing about hat happened before that time. "One thing I can tell you, though, is that I found a deficit but no money." Representative August Lonnergan'of Connecticut was one of the Demo cratic leaders who accompanied Goer nor Cox when his train pulled out at 11:45 o'clock. New York, Aug. 27.

That Republican Campaign Fund of Over $15,000,000 Was Being Raised. Pittsburg, Aug. 27.

Y. and Atlanta, Ga., were said by Governor Cox to have been announced about the middle of July. That Senator Harding, his Republi can opponent, "was acquainted with the details" of the quota plan and that it was also approved by Will H. Hays, chairman of the Republican national committee, was charged by th.e Demo cratic candidate. From subsequent issues of the official bulletin Governor Cox quoted many re ports from Republican workers throughout the country, reporting going "over the top" and in excess of the alleged quotas.

Never Have So Many Left London for Shore and Village. London, .Aug. 27. Never has there been auch an exodus from the larger cities of England to seaside and vil lage for the vacation period as this year. Railroads and coastwise steam ship companies have been unable to cope with the traffic and lack of hous ing facilities at the more popular re sorts has forced thousands to get back home. August, partly because of custom and partly because this month is the warmest of the cool English summer, is the great holiday time of the coun try. This year the government decided to raise railroad fares to 75 per cent above pre-war level in order to recoup some of the losses incurred in operation by the government.- This in crease was made in face of a solid press campaign against it and 'was an nounced to become effective August 6. Consequently thousands who had planned their vacations later changed their plans to avoid the fare increase. The decisionto go early came too late to arrange for accommodations at re sorts and thousands left home with the idea of taking a chance on getting rooms. The result was congestion everywhere. , At some of the London stations peo ple waited seven hours to catch trains. Trains to Rrighton were heavily load ed long before the hour of departure. At Liverpool they took positions Fri day night to obtain places on the boats Saturday to the popular Isle f Man. The boats were loaded as rapidly as they could be locked but thousands were left behind when Saturday night came. People on the wharves were admonished by officials not to go un less they had accommodations on the island. Few heeded it, however, and that night the beaches were almost cotered with persons unable to get shelter or unable to pay the high pri-es resulting from the influx. Thouanfs went to resorts by motor char a bancs which have become very popular this summer because of high rail fares and inconvenience of crowd ed trains. If is a custom in England for many people of the less influential cla-se to marry on "bank holiday," the first Monday in August. They take their fortnight's vacation for the honeymoon. At one tillage, two hours before a. train left for a popular nearby resort. 20 cwiplea were lined tip i front of th villaje tburrh. waiting their turn for the parson to do his duly. - to prove and will fail to prove his charges. This is simply because the charges are false. "He says millions have been put into the Republican national committee by sinister influences to corrupt the elec torate. Ho first is reported to have said ay hundred million. Then Secre tary Roosevelt- said thirty million. Then Candidate Cox fifteen million, while now Candidate Cox says eight million. "He attempts to prove this by quot ing Irom tlie oflieial bulletin of the wavs and means committee of the Re publican national committee a para phlet published every few days and sent broadcast over the country to party members, all to instill interest and retaining the money paid him. It is further alleged that Daniels is the owner of a large block of shares in the Daniels and Wilson Furniture company and if he fails to return to the receivers the money paid him by Ponai they ask that the court order the sale of his stock and apply the proceeds in settlement of their claim against him. Judge Sisk issued a temporary in junction against Daniels, and an order of notice was made returnable on September 2. The receivers to day formally seized the expensive home of IVnr.i in Lex ington, and the several automobiles which he bought in his days of afflu. mone the workers and from an Men"- '" w,fe " mother of th im- leced quota sheet which he claims in- prisoned promoter wrre allowed to dicates the amounts to lie raised in "ontinnf their residence there, and it Is ... certain cities, which he does not even " understood they will not bo dis charge was adopted or any operation I turbed until the estate i, set tie.

The amount is nearly 1 ,000 'less than the deficit for the first six months of this year. , - Frank G. Howland was elected mod eratorand City Clerk Mackay acted as clerk. Under the second article of thf warning, to see if the city will vote -j sum of money for the support of thf hospital, a motion was made by H. C Ladd that support be given. The mo tion was seconded by Harold Bur roughs, and the motion was carried by a unanimous vote. Under article three, to dett"-m re the amount and the conditios, C. H. Wish art moved "that the city vote the sum of $3,000 for the Bupport f the City hospital upon condition that it will fur nish free care, board and nursing for persons supported by the city and re quiring the same; under such regula tions as shall be agreed upon by the city council and the hospital trustees, or committees representing1 them." His motion was seconded by John S. McDonald, but before the question was put td the house, ex-Alderman Henry Alexander wanted to know how far in debt the running expenses had placed the hospital. Treasurer Arthur C. Moore then gave the receipts, and ex penditures for the first six months of 1920. On every patient cared for at the hospital from January 1st, 1020 to July 1st, 1920, there has been a loss of $1.05 per day per patient. This nets a total deficiency of practically $4,000 in the six months' period.
