Des Moines, Iowa, April 22. Iowa .Republican in slate con vention today selected the dele gates to cast the state's 26 Totes at the national conven tion in Chicago. The tentative slate agreed upon late last night included the names of two women Mrs. Frank Dod son of Des Moines, and Mrs. James Devltt of Oskaloosa, United States Senator Albert B. Cummins was temporary chair man and delivered the keynote address. M. J. Tobin of Ben ton county, was slated to be permanent chairman. Des Moines, Iowa, April 22. President Wilson and the peace treaty were condemned and the rail road law commended by Senator Cummins, president pro tempore of the senate, in an address here to day to the Iowa Republican con vention. Predicting Republican success next November, Senator Cummins said a Republican president should be cho6en "because it is high time that the president should be a right minded man." "For surely," he continued, "eight years of mystery, of uncertainty, of i inconsistency, of abnormality, of in- ted, and we have earned our eman cipation." . Praise For Kail Return. Senator Cummins declared the Republicans were responsible for the law returning the railroads to private ownership which he char acterised as "a great forward step in progressive and constructive legislation" containing "a code for protection of railroad workers." Mr. Cummins said the railroad labor board is "a tribunal which will render to railroad wage work ers a surer and higher justice than they can ever hope to secure through a strike." With such a tribunal, he said, the public in its need for uninterrupted transporta tion, was entitled to declare unlaw ful conspiracies of railroad work ers "to coerce employers by in flicting upon an innocent public the infinite cruelties which sprung from general cessation1' of transporta tion." Treaty to be Issue. The treaty of Versailles will be a campaign issue, said Mr. Cum mins, who asserted that it contained "unconstitutional and treasonable provisions." The greatest problem now fac ine American. Mr. Cummins said, is "to readjust the disordered rela tion which has inevitably appeared between wages and compensation for personal service and the price of commodities." Increased pro duction, he added, was the remedy. URUGUAY CHIEF FOR 'AMERICAN LEAGUE' STEPS Montevideo, April 2L Forma tion of an "American league" on a basis of absolute equality between American nations for common ac tion against aggression threaten ing any one of them from outside nations and for arbitration' of inter-American disputes, was propos ed by Dr. Baltazar Brum, president of Uruguay, in addressing students of the University of Montevideo to night As a step in the formation of such a league, Dr. Brum declared other American countries should make a declaration similar to the Monroe doctrine, placing them on the same footing as the United States, for joint action against Eu ropean aggression and to secure the solidarity of the American con tinent. He said the proposed league should be formed without prejudice to adherents to the League of Nations. Taking up the Monroe doctrine. Dr. Brum pointed out how it had "constituted on the woole, an effi cacious safeguard to the territorial integrity of many American coun tries." CON CON DEFEATS SUFFRAGE SCHEME Snrinafield. 111..

(By TJnitrd Prun.) Paris, April 22. Indications of the breach between the allied pre miers In the meeting at San Remo were seen in newspaper dispatches here today. French correspondents made no effort to conceal the situation. On the one side, they said, stands Prime Minister Lloyd George of Great Britain, favoring modification of the peace treaty with Germany1 and asking France to pledge her self not to act alone to enforce the treaty in future. 1 The British leader is backed by Premier Nitti of Italy and Baron Matsui of Japan. Sticks to Letter. Opposing them is Premier Mil lerand, holding to the French deci sion that the treaty of Versailles must, be enforced to the letter re serving for France the right to en force those clauses which most vitally affect her. The correspondents agreed that the conference so far has only skirmished about the real business of the meeting Germany. Some of them were pessimistic. "In view of the fact that Italy and Japan have agreed to support Lloyd George, the French have only two alternatives," one corre spondent wrote, "to concede or quit San Remo." Squabble Over Ruhr. Prolongation of German occupa tion of the Ruhr district which the French have opposed, probably will be granted, the Petit Parisien's cor respondent said, while a dispatch to the Matin said that Lloyd George and Nitti had proposed to Millerand that the conference call in German representatives, includ ing Chancellor Mueller, to discuss political and economic relations be tween Germany and the entente. Le Journal said French military experts had proposed to solve the difficulties confronting the League of Nations, which refused to ac cept a mandate over Armenia be cause it had no power to enforce its orders, by giving the league an army oi several thousand men. fully equipped with airplanes. MILLERAND FOR U.S. ADVICE IN TURK PROBLEM San Remo, April 22. Alexandre Millerand, the French premier, re ceived the American newspaper correspondents of whom 11 are here, and talked freely about peace conference affairs. "Our friendship with the Ameri can people." he said, "did not begin with 1914, but very long before that and before you brought us the de cisive help in the war, which now is such a precious recollection. "I regret we could not have the direct active cooperation of the United States government in the preparation of the Turkish treaty here, but I am sure America will not stand apart always from Euro pean affairs. I regret much more that the United States does not participate in the discussion of Germany's treatment of the treaty of Versailles, which will be consid ered tomorrow." The official statement issued by the supreme council at the close of the morning session says: "The supreme council assembled today at 11 a. m. and heard the opinion of military and naval ex perts on questions regarding the administration of the Dardenneles straits. The council approved the insertion of clauses relating to this matter in the Turkish peace treaty. The council afterwards examined the present situation in. the Cau cassus." CAILLAUX GUILTY OF ENEMY DEALS Paris, April 22. Joseph Caillaux, former premier of France, this evening, was found guilty of hav ing had commerce with the enemy by the high court of the senate. The vote was 150 to M. Paris, April 22. The charges of high treason and intelligence with the enemy against former Premier Joseph Caillaux were eliminated by the high court of the senate to day by a vote of 213 to 28. This eliminated the possibility of the death penalty being inflicted. Near as Grunau Is May Delivery in Corn Market Hardest Hit in Continuance of Breaks Chicago, April 22. Sharp new breaks took place today in the corn market right at the outset. The heaviest fall was in the May de- livery, which in some cases ex- hibited a sheer descent of stx cents ' a bushel since lask night. Renewed j weakness in the New York stock! market was the main reason j ascribed. Initial Price Wider. Initial prices in corn had a much wider range than usual, and for the May delivery were as much as two cents apart for simultaneous trades in different parts of the pit May started at $1.62 to $1.64, as com pared with $1.66i1.68 at yes terday's finish. The corn market as a whole opened c to 6c lower, with July at $1.56 to $1.57. A big trade was in nrogrees In all the grain pits. There had been!f,,rrm1 .Oino. nf ,.ihBrtv nf UWHJ dLtUlUUiailUU 171 BCHUUg orders during the night, and in- dividual operations counted for lit tle. After the opening, however, commission house buying increased, and a sharp rally followed. Price fluctuations were so rapid that blackboard quotations were fre quently far out of line with the actual market in the pit. Ration Resumed. New, April 22. Liquidation of speculative shares was resumed at the opening of today's stock market much of the pressure Johnson Maintains His Lead in Nebraska Vote; Bryan Success Assured Omaha, Neb., April 22. The lead estimated by Senator Hiram John son of California,-!! the u-lyimiry Indicated today. These pre- count from last Tuesday's primaries lengthened as more precincts re turns were received. In 1,054 out of 149 precincts in the state, Johnson had a lead of 11,399 votes over General Leonard Wood, with General Pershing third. The vote was: Johnson. 41,753. Wood, 30,34: Pershing, 19,860.

Whether the suffrage amendment will be de clared ratified in time to give all women citisens full voting rights in the election next November now virtually hinges on action of the United States supreme court in a case to be argued late today or. to morrow. Final action of the court is ex pected before adjournment early in June. Suffrage leaders estimate that if the court's action is what they consider favorable, 20,000,000 women will be eligible to vote in the next election, but of this num ber 7J0O0.OOO will have full suffrage righta under state statutes, wnue 6,000,000 have limited voting priv ileges. The' case is an appeal from the Ohio supreme court to determine whether the legislature of that state can ratify an amendment to the federal constitution without submitting it to a referendum. The Ohio supreme court held that the ratification waa not complete until the people passed on It. The suffragists now have 35 ratifications ot the Susan B. An thony amendment, not including that by the Ohio legislature. They feel optimistic about the chances of obtaining favorable action in one or more state legislatures, but ad mit that it is doubtful if there will be two more rauncauona tba next few months. during emanating from professional inter eats. Offerings were well absorbed for a time. General Motors recovering 10 points of yesterday's 42 point decline, While other leaders in the Industrial and speculative divisions rallied one to almost five points, United States Steel and some of the n,8a Krade oils, equipments and shippings developed fresh re actionary tendencies, however, and before the end of the first hour many gains were cancelled, with numerous new low records for the curent movement. Liberty Bonds Weaker. Further weakness of Liberty bonds was again a disquieting in fluence, the first 4s declining one per cent and the first 44s losing 1.40 per cent. Advices received by local banks continued recent reports ot en- industrial centers where labor troubles have been especialy prev alent. Close Unchanged. In the end, the market was not greatly changed from yesterday's finish. Indications that foreigners were taking advantage of the scare J and were active on the lookout for bargains in grain did a good deal to restore comparative confidence. The close was unsettled, varying from l7sc decline to lc advance, with May at 1.66 to 1.66 and July at 1.58 to 1.59. returns from 994 precincts out of 1.84S in Tuesday's presidential pri- clncts gave Bryan and Berge and the two Hitchcock candidates Ne ville and Shallenberger, the lead. Bryan's vote was third. KftnntnT Hiram -Tnhnsinn nf Cali fornia, continued to hold his lead' in the Republican presidential pri mary vote today. Pershing Weak. Returns indicated he had carried the state by 25,000 with General Wood second and General Pershing, "native son" candidate, a poor third. Pershing barely carried his home county of Lancaster. Senator G. M. Hitchcock appar ently won the Democratic endorse ment for president He had little opposition. GEORGIA RETURNS PALMER IN LEAD Atlanta, April 22. Unofficial complete returns from Georgia's Democratic presidential preference primary held Tuesday, showed to day that Attorney General Palmer would bave 140 votes in the party's state convention, a 10 vote plural ity over Thomas E. Watson, his nearest opponent Senator Hoke Smith, the third candidate, on tire basis of the same returns, wilt have 114 votes. U.S. TO REMAIN ONLY OBSERVER IN MEX. REVOLT Washington, April 22. Reports both to the state and war depart ments today continued to support the unofficial dispatches that have toid of the rapidly increasing array of revolt in Mexico. Administra tion officials studied them carefully but without betraying any indica tion that the position of this gov ernment would be other than that of an observer. The movement begun by the se cession of Sonora has gained sup port of at least four ofher states. the adherence' of various groups of federal forces and the promises by Villa, Manuel Palaez and one or two qther minor rebel chiefs that they will Join in the fight on Car- ranza, the reports showed. So far as could be learned here, Carranza has made no overtures to the American government for as sistance. The presence here ot Gen eral Salvadore Alverex, as the per sonal representative ot General Obregon. leader of the new revolt has not brought from the adminis tration any sign of Its willingness to recognize the belligerency of the; anti-government group. One small hope waa offered to day In the announcement that a mission from Mexico City was on its way to Sonora for a conference with the leaders there. DRAW LINES FORMING BALLOT WAR Demos Fight on Treaty, Republicans on Do mestic Issues. BY DAVID LAWRKME. . (Special to The Argus. 1 Washington, D. C, April 22- President Wilson is to make the treaty of peace the dominant issue of the campaign. Whether a candi date or not, Mr. Wilson will make a fight to have the American people endorse his stand. For the pres ent, therefore, the treaty will not go back to the senate unless, of course, there is some change of heart in the senate or some situa tion in Europe which alters the whole face of things. But the overwhelming issue will be the treaty. A vote for the Dem ocratic ticket will be a vote for the peace treaty. A vote for the Re publican ticket will he a vote against the peace treaty. That is the Democratic strategy. That is what the Democratic campaign ora tors are going to say, notwithstand ing the protests of Republican spellbinders that they wanted the treaty with reservations and Mr. Wilson blocked the way. It the American people defeat the Demo cratic party on that issue, the pres ident's next move would unques tionably be to withdraw American participation from Europe, and from that would logically follow another peace negotiation by the next president-elect, either a sep arate peace or an entrance into the league with reservations. . G. 0. P. on Domestic Issues. But while it would be the aim of the Republican party to keep the American people concentrated on domestic issues, the Democrats, led by the president, will blame all the economic and business lis of the country on the failure of the senate to ratify the treaty. In the meantime the president is taking upon his own shoulders the determination of American foreign policy. American ambassadors abroad have been instructed to act as "observers" at all international conferences. Foreign governments will know that this is merely a (Continued on Page Five.) D. A. A.

He suggested that the Demo cratic national convention at San Francisco takiug the following ac tion: "That the administration of Woodrow Wilson be heartily en dorsed, including bis services as commander-in-chief of the army and navy during the war. ' "That the League of Nations be endorsed, not objecting to anyj reasonable interpretation or reser vation, but opposing a reservation (the Lodge reservation to Article X) that destroys the very keystone of the covenant "That we outline) our promise for the rehabilitation of the nation's financial and fiscal affairs." Lodge Plan "Cowardly." Governor Gardner denounced the Lodge reservation to Article X of the covenant of the League of Nations as "cowardly." Compensation for former service men, either in the form oi iand grants, loans or cash bonus should be provided. Governor Gardner declared. He advocated a small army without universal training. BREAD PRICES DUE FOR SHARP RISES, REPORT (By United Press ! Washington, April 22. Bread prices will be increased again fol lowing rising flour and wheat quo tations, government reports indi cated today. Wheat now selling far above the government guaranteed price, has not reached a high level, according to the crop estimate bureau of the agricultural department. "The 1920 crop will be shorter not only in the United States, but throughout the world," said Statis tician Nat Murray. "This will aftect prices inside the United States. It means what the trade calls a 'healthy market.' It spells the reverse of produc tions, a fluctuating market and per haps also further advances in prices." Other signs also point to a ris ing market. One is dissolution of the United States grain corpora tion June 30. The grain corporation, through its ability to buy, sell or store large quantities of wheat, has pow er to control prices to a large ex tent. Many farmers contend it de liberately has held down wheat prices Senators and congressmen UMilTiirnl ctntpq rnnav nrp- from agricultural states today pre dicted dissolution of the corpora tion would bring sudden increases in prices.
