It goes without saying that I heartily ap prove' your meeting. ' I am, how ever, surprised that anyone ahould have been surprised at the disclos ure that money was secured by the leaders of the Morse-Babler crowd for which they were to deliver the Missouri delegation at the national convention.'

Governor Cox of Ohio has profited most by the efforts ot William Gibba McAdoo to eliminate himself from the list of avowed candidates for the Democratic presidential nomination. That isn't saying Cox will be nominated, tor the situation haa hardly erystaliaed and the real purposes ot Messrs. Wilson and McAdoo have not yet carried con viction with the delegates. They don't believe that Mr. Wil son wants a third term and they can't believe that McAdoo doesn't want the nomination. Yet the truth is so simple and so obvious that delegates are reluctant to credit it Here are some facta upon which the reader can base his own con clusions: L President Wilson talked for an hour and a halt with Homer Camming, Democratic national chairman, at the White bouse three weeks ago and never showed the slightest Interest in his own politi cal future, nor did he explain any preference aa between candidates. 2. Mr. Cu minings is in constant touch by wire with the White house and Is really the president's main channel of communication . with this convention and it a stampede or movement for; Wilson were to be started Cnmmings would know of it And all the newspaper talk of a third term is incomprehensible to Mr. onmmings. , '.

Ho took a deep interest in the Republican national convention and gave the impres sion that ho would welcome a chance to get into the campaign and fight C. Less than a week later Mr. McAdoo announced his irrevocable decision not to allow his name to be presented to the Democratic na tional convention.

Presi dent Wilson considers It unneces sary for the Democratic platform to contain any reference to the pro hibition question or to independ ence for Ireland, he informed those who speak for him at the Demo cratic convention here, it was learned here today. As to the League of Nations, the president will be satisfied with nothing less than a strong affirma tive declaration for immediate rati fication of the - covenant without crippling reservations. Senator carter Glass or Virginia who is slated to Lead the resolu tions committee that will write the Democratic platform, today de clared that he did not bear a draft ot a platform written at the White House, but added that he knew the president's mind about what - he would like to see tne Democrats ; ; withholds TJewn. (Mass declined to reveal any ink ling ot what the president told him In a conference at the White House Just before Glass went to his train. He said, however, that the presi dent had not changed his position on the league Issue In the slightest "The only platform draft I have brought with me," , said Glass, "is the Virginia platform which the president formally approved In a letter to me." .The Virginia platform is silent upon both the proamnion ana Irish questions which with the league form the chief sources of trouble for. the platform builders. Glass, expressing his personal view on the prohibition question. said that it is settled, nence need not be referred to. As to Irish in-1 dependence, he said, ' "Virginia Democrats had enough troubles oi their own to attend to." His Opinion of Bryan. "Will Bryan in your opinion be able to cause trouble over the plat form?" Glass was asked. 'Mr. Bryan haa the reputation for successfully kicking up trouble, hunt be?" was the reply. Absurd!" said Glass, when asked to comment on a statement published here that President Wil son would demand that the Demo crats nominate him as a vindica tion of his policies and administra-1 tion and would then decline the nomination. "The president is not in the busi ness ot demanding nominations," said Glass. "I do not mean to say it is absurd that the party should nominate him, but it certinly is to say that he has demanded It" Strong for McAdoo. The Virginia senator, who is an unwilling candidate himself by reason of the instructions to the Virginia delegation to vote for him. gave the impression that he Is strongly for McAdoo. Whether in this he reflects the president's view could not be learned, but Glass does not regard McAdoo as out of the race merely because he has withdrawn his name. When told that the Palmer forces rare claiming McAdoo's strength Glass made this more or less cryp tic remark:. ;.: - Y . ; "They had better see Joaett Shouse and find out who McAdoo in for." x .' ."- THE WEATHER Unsettled weather tonight rrioay; probably showers; what warmer tonight.
