BT DAVID LAW3ESCE. (Special to The Argus.) Washington, D. C, April 29. Re publican primary results in Massa chusetts, Ohio and New Jersey have failed to .produce an over welming enthusiasm for any ot tbe leading candidates but have merely accentuated tbe fundamental line of demarcation between ultra-radical and ultra-conservative thought in tbe party itself. Anaylsis of the returns and the localities from which the prefer ence vote was polled would seem to indicate that the more or less conservative elements in the Re publican rank and file are dividing their votes between Major General Wood, Senator Harding and Gover nor Lowden, while the middle-of-the road Republicans show an in clination toward Herbert Hoover and the extreme radicals or the progressives who hover on the edge of radicalism and policies of nationalism show a strong liking for Senator Hiram Johnson. The substitution of Wood for Harding or Lowden or the nomin ation of any one of the these three men would not mean the loss of the following of the other two. Their strength comes from precise ly the same type of Republican vot ers. It is interesting to note that all three favor the League of Na tions and treaty with reservations, and their supporters include the regular Republican voters together with some independents. The bulk ot the independent Republican vote as the returns would indicate, is being divided between Herbert Hoover and Senator Hiram John son, with tbe latter being support ed by thousands of new voters, most of them formerly Democrats who have disapproved of President Wilson's stand on the League of Nations. Certainly Senator Johnson, who has made no bones ot his absolute opposition to the treaty and to the league, manages to poll as consid erable a vote even in eastern states as he did in the middle west and far west. The conclusion drawn here is that either the Johnson per sonality which made itself so ef fective a force in California is im- ; pressing upon the voters with Rooseveltian magnetism or that those elements in tbe American electorate who feel keenly about article X are taking this opportun ity to express their appreciation to Hiram Johnson for his aggressive fight in their behalf. Nobody who knows Johnson well would accuse (Continued on Page Seventeen.) LITTLETON GIRL BECOMES BRIDE OF VANDERBILT New York, April 29.

Verdon, Republican leader, who said that "if Johnson had not been 'robbed,' he would have car ried tbe state by 10,000 to 15,000." Verdon called attention to the fact that the vote in several dis tricts was still missing early to day, "whereas the law provides the returns shall be submitted to the county clerks forthwith." "It is very significant that be lated reports from outlying dis tricts, which should have been the first to complete their count, were turned in at times when Johnson threatened Wood's apparent lead," Verdon said. Wood Statement. The following statement was is sued from Wood headquarters here: "Every primary that Johnson loses is crooked; every one he wins is on the level.

The Car ranza government has been a "ghastly failure," S. G. Hopkins, Washington attorney and formerly counsel for Carranza, testified to day before a senate committee in vestigating Mexican affairs. Mr. Hopkins said the Mexican leader had "failed to keep all his promises and has aeither pacified the coun try nor inaugurated any of the re forms which he- advocated before taking power." The witness predicted success for General Obregon, one of the leaders in the new revolution in Mexico, which, he said, was due to "the state of unrest developed in Mexico by the failure of the Car ranza government to function in any way." Carranza was furnished arms and munitions by the United States in 1914 with the direct cognizance of the American government, Mr. Hop kins said; and in such quantity as to assure him success in his fight to displace Victoriana Huerta.
