The greatest political advertising campaign In the history of the country is in foil swing here. , Organizations representing all the principal candidates for the Republican presidential nomination are employing every established legitimate method and a few brand new ones to "sell" their man to the public and the national delegates. Michigan avenue, long world famous for its "automobile row," has now blossomed out with a "presidential row." This starts at the Blackstone hotel, where Gov ernor Frank O. Lowden has per sonal quarters, and runs north ward, taking in the Congress and Auditorium hotels. Whole floors of the two latter hostelries have been taken over by the various head quarters. IL C of Campaigning. Of course, this all costs money and the senatorial Investigation of campaign expenditures at Wash ington forms one of the principal topics of conversation here but, as one veteran politician put it today "The cost of campaigning has gone up the same as everything else. The candidates' campaign head quarters continue to grow, one ftna two rooms at a time, as the date for the convention approaches, and they have even elbowed the in finitesimal quarters of the Repub lican national committee in the Congress to such an extent that the party officials must find a new bailiwick. Johnson Bases tm. Probably the most spectacular headquarters is that of Senator Hiram Johnson' organization. New dazzling white partitions have been built in on the second floor of the Auditorium and that whole portion of the hotel hung with elaborate colored pictures of the senator in striking postures. Senator Warren G. Harding has the smallest space. The suite has been furnished more with an eye to the comfort of visitors than any thing else, and is the only one re sembling a real, old fashioned po litical hangout Hoover Ubiquitous. Lowden, Major ruT"r"' TinonMaMf .iylii"1 raaS' and" Herbert Hoover are fteitiV-with VVtXXl about on a par as regards floor space. The Hoover workmen, how ever, have gone in strongest for posters. A person can hardly turn about anywhere in Chicago without staring into the beaming counte nance of the former food adminis trator. Striking a jarring note in all this Republican atmosphere are two Democratic candidates' headquar ters, those of Attorney General Palmer and Governor Edward L Edwards. The real thing in advertising will be trotted out when the con- MAN KILLS HIS WIFE AND THEN ENDS OWN LIFE Galesburg, LU, May 28 The J. W. Underwood home In this city was the scene of a cold blooded murder last night . when Fred Mead shot and kill ed his wife following an argu ment over family troubles. Mead wounded his wife when she was standing in the front doorway of the Underwood home. She ran into the kitch en and attempted to escape through the back door, but her husband followed her into the bouse and cut off her escape. She finally eluded him and ran out into the front yard. Mead shot her again as she attempted to run across the yard lo a neighbor's bone. Mrs. Mead dropped dead a few feet from the spot where the second shot was fired. The murderer later attempt ed to kill his 14-year-old daughter by shooting through the front wall of the Under wood home, but she escaped uninjured. He returned to his home, one house north, and shot himself through the bead a short time before the police arrived. He died a few hours later in SU Mary's hospital. . STRIKE REPORT MISLEADS CORN Chicago, May : 28. Apparently baseless reports that the switch men's strike had been settled gave a big tumble today to values in the corn market. The most extreme setback was in the July delivery, which at one time touched $1.8J and showed a fall of 64 cents a bushel as com pared with yesterday's finish. For a short while, selling was unus usally heavy. : Tention gets under way. In this phase the Wood people count on having all their rivals badly handi capped. Among those woo will lead the demonstrations for the general will be former Rough Rid ers in uniform, cowboys In pictur esque costume and graduates of the Plattsburg training camp. Then there will be several groups of "rah-rah" boys, captured in the wilds of 'various campuses, who will give vent to their native cries. led by their own cheer leaders. Oh, yes,' and 'steen bands, count 'em. Barkers Engaged. Johnson and Harding are the only candidates who have decided definitely upon who will make their nominating speeches. It is believed, however, that official announcement will be made before the end of the week that Governor Henry Allen of Kansas will toss General Wood's chapeau in the ring. Several men are said to be under consideration by Lowden, among them being Con gressmen Rodenburg and Denni son, and E. N. Chiperfield, all of Illinois. Johnson's and Harding's choices are Henry S. Wheeler of San Fran cisco, and Frank B. Willis, former governor of Ohio, respectively. Senator George Moses will be floor leader for Johnson and L. L. Em mersoa of Illinois probably will act in that capacity for Lowden. John son and Harding had not decided upon their men for this job today. Harding' Sees Chance. It became generally known for the first time today that Harding is deeply interested in the contest ing delegates from the southern states as Wood and Lowden. ; Ac cording to Harding headquarters the senator will be affected by the following contests: Arkansas, 7; Georgie, 17; Louis iana, 12; North Carolina, 22; Ok lahoma, 6; South Carolina, 11; Texas, 23. Johnson will fight for two dele gates in Minnesota and an unde termined number In Texas. Lowden will make the following contests: Arkansas, 7; Florida, 8; Georgie, 17; Louisiana, .12; Mississippi, 12 ; Missouri, 4; North Carolina, 22; Oklahoma, 6; South Carolina, 11; Texas, 23. and Virginia. 15. . Wood's Contests. rill .make the same con- Carolina? and will also contest two from Minnesota. The tnree sets of delegates from the District of Col umbia are all claimed by Wood. There will be 145 contests in all, according to present indications, compared with only 34 in 1916, as follows: Alabama, 7; Florida, 1; Georgia, 17; Oklahoma, 4; South. Carolina, 2; District of Columbia, 2; Vir ginia, 1. The situation in the District of Columbia was so involved that the credentials committee seated no delegates from that place.

BY DAVID LAWRENCE. (Special to The Argus.) Washington, D. C, May 28. Wil liam Cooper Procter's half million dollar contribution to the campaign fund of General Leonard Wood stirred fond recollections here to day in the minds of many friends of President Wilson who pointed out another half million dollars contributed just 10 years ago this month in another cause had as much to do with electing Woodrow Wilson to the presidency as any other circumstance in his political journey to the White house. Mr. Procter gave $500,000 in 1910 toward the establishment of a grad uate school in Princeton university of which Mr. Wilson was then the president, but the latter turned the gift down because the Cincinnati soap manufacturer attached certain conditions to the expenditure of the money which involved the retention of certain personnel in the college. Mr. Wilson argued that gifts should come without strings attached and the incident provoked such a con troversy among Princeton alumni that it led Mr. Wilson reluctantly, to resign the presidency of the col lege and accept the gubernatorial nomination which the Democratic leaders in New Jersey were eager for him to take. Again and again that half million dollars has been facetiously referred to among Princeton men as He "first impor tant contribution" toward Mr. Wil son's first campaign for the presi dency. Apparently Not Selfish. Mr. Procter's testimony in de fense of his expenditures for Gen eral Wood did not create the im pression that he contributed large sums of money for any selfish pur pose. He contributed heavily to the Hughes' campaign in 1916. Cross examination on the stand rather led to the conclusion of disinterested observers that Mr. Procter is the kind of a man who was persuaded by ardent and enthusiastic friends of General Wood that he ought to use his fortune to help advance the candidacy of so vigorous a char acter as General Wood. Of course the game of roping men of wealth into political cam paigns is an art in itself and in every case the "patriotic opportun ity" offered to the man of means is emphasized rather than any sug gestion of personal advantage in the form of political office. On the other hand it has been customary for successful candidates to the presidency not to forget some of (Continued on page four). TURKS FEARFUL OF GREEK ARMY (By United Press.) Constantinople, May 26. Moslem leaders in the Vilayet of Adrianople in European Turkey are sending their families to this city in antici pation of fighting when the Greeks attempt to occupy Thrace.

EMPLOYERS TOO 'SOFT GARY SAYS Backward iiu Insisting on Sights, He Says at v Steel Institute. New York. May 28. Employers in America referred to as the cap italistic group, heretofore have been backward in insisting on their rights, Elbert H. Gary, chair man of the United States Steel cor poration, declared here today In opening the annual meeting of the American Irion and Steel Institute. Speaking on "The Ship of State." Mr. Gary said the question of whether it will be wrecked wheth er or not the disease of "unjustified unrest and revolt" will progress depends upon the efforts of the ship's sailors, who are all the peo ple. All Bound to U. S. Employers, employes and the general public which includes them, owe a duty to the nation which must be performed to insure stability of government and contin uance of the enjoyment of Ameri can freedom, he asserted. "The present so-called labor strikes, involving riot and injury to property and persons, are insti gated as a part of the campaign to disturb and demoralize the social and economic conditions of the country," said Mr. Gary. "In other lands, very serious results have been accomplished by the same means." Hits Class Laws. Mr. Gary deprecated class legis lation. He declared there are no classes in the United States such as have existed in other countries. In America, he said, those who are seeking to establish classes are not prominent because of wealth, but are composed of a compara tively small minority which has adopted the word "labor" with the concealed design of forming a class which they hope will finally enable them to obtain legislation which would ultimately destroy the constitution. Too Discriminating. "These men have already pro cured certain legislation which is wonderfully discriminating," Mr. Gary said. The safe, efficacious and natural remedy for these perils are to be found only in unity of purpose and undivided loyalty to the principles of our constitution. FELIX DIAZ IS FOR DE FACTO RULE, HE SAYS (By Associated Press.) Vera Cruz, May 2S.

SIMS REVEALS PLAN FOR NAVY REORGANIZATION Washington, May 28. Legisla tion reorganizing the nary depart ment and creating a responsible military advisor to the civilian sec retary was urged before the senate naval investigating committee to day by Rear Admiral Sims, who continued his testimony in rebuttal to Secretary Daniels and other wit nesses. The admiral ascribed the war time failures charged by him against the navy to the present organization.- He declared that Mr. Daniels in his testimony had not attempted to reply to specific criti cisms, but had endeavored to "gloss over the department s failures. "In defending the navy," Admir al Sims said, "the secretary has also seen fit to introduce matters reflecting upon the war services of the navy of a friendly nation with whom we were associated in the war. He has charged that this navy was ineffective, that it had no plans and he has quoted . the president to the effect that in the crisis it was helpless to the point of panic. He has further charged that I was so hypnotized by this service that I consistently depre cated the efforts of my own ser vice, ignored my own department. attempted to deceive the bead of my own nation, and endeavored to use the forces under my command in the interests of Great Britain and contrary to the interests of the United States. These charges are, of course, so baseless that it seems Impossible that they be seriously made." THE WEATHER Mostly cloudy and somewhat un settled tonight and Saturday. Warmer Saturday.
