Predicts Repub Con
gress Will Pass
' Albany,. N. Y., Sept 27. Early
adoption by the Republican con
gress of laws prohibiting strikes
which "cut off the supply of food
or service necessary to the life of
the community," and at the same
time protecting the workman's lib
erty, waS predicted by Elihu Root,
temporary chairman, in his address
before the Republican state con
vention today. Touching on the
recent rail and coal strikes, Mr.
Root said:
"So long as strikes were a con
test between laborers and employ
ers to secure tor labor its fair
share of the new wealth which has
come to mankind through invention
and discovery and application of
science and the art of organization,
the sympathies of the American
public were with labor. When a
strike becomes an attempt to co
erce the public into taking action
cutting off the supply of food
or service necessary to the life of
the community, I am sure that
public feeling goes tbe other way.
Two Klfldg of Strikes. m
"I think that in this country we
are gradually approaching the
point where the law of the land '
will provide for distinguishing be
tween the two kinds of strikes, and
protecting the public against com
pulsion by threat of peril to life or
of destruction to the machinery of
civilization, and at the same time
protect the workman's liberty to
refuse to work and the workman's
liberty to work. It we can not
come to that point then the Ameri
can government of all the people,
by all the people, for all the people,
will fail, and a few will rule the
many. Perhaps we are approach-

As Evidence,
Chicago, Sept 27'. Dr. Albert
Abrams, California specialist
bas refused to make a private
blood test to determine whether
John Tiernan, Notre Dame law
professor, is the father of his
wife's baby boy, who Mrs. Tier
nan -says is the child of Harry
Poulin, haberdasher of South
Bend, Ind.
Dr.' Abrams' refusal to make
the test became known today
following a conference with the I
Tiernans, who came to Chicago
last night at the close of the
hearing on the paternity case at
South Bend to consult the Cali-
fornia specialist. They brought
the baby with them.
Dr. C. M. Morris, at whose
home Dr. Abrams is staying, was
authority for the statement of
Dr. Abrams' refusal to take a
part privately in the case. Dr.
Abrams, in declining to take part
privately in the case said he
would make a test only in con

Lawrence Explains It Isn't
Novel Feeling for
(Copyright, 1922, by The Argus.)
Toledo, Ohio, Sept 27. An Insid
ious tale and by insidious one
means politically dangerous is go
ing the rounds among Republicans
here and elsewhere in Ohio to the j
effect that President Harding is so I

will announce that he will not ac
cept a renomination for the presi
dency. . j
The story has this basis: Many
of those political pilgrims from the
president's home state who have
been to Washington have come back
here with gossip that Mr. Harding
found the presidency a super-human
task and that it was wearing
him- out "Those who know from
past experience with American
presidents how they feel in the first
two years will bear testimony that
President Harding's attitude is not
novel.- It was in the first year of
Mr., Wilson's first administration
that he exclaimed to a group of
cailcfs that he never could under
stand how any one in his right
senses could ever seek the presi

Party Will -Draft" Him.
Yet the question of renomination
! was not personal with Mr. Wilson
more than it wU1 be Mr Hard.
j The party decides the matter.
Mr Hardin. w drafted in 1920
nomination and he will be drafted
again if the party chieftains think
he should be. Tbe only effect ot
this story at this time is to under
mine tbe political strength of Mr.
Harding with his own party. There
has been of course a distinct loss
of ground by the president He is
personally popular but not as much
before the rail and coal strikes. It
is natural for those with whom the
wish is father to the thought to be
gin talking of some one else for the
presidential nomination and it is
inevitable that the talk of another
should be predicated on what
seems to them a plausible assump
tion tbat President Harding him
self will not wish to run. It is al
ways conceded that if Mr. Harding
sought a renomination the party
would be embarrassed if it refused.
Thompson Will Win.
The reaction against the Harding
administration is noticeable but
surface indications are that it
hasn't reached the point of real
danger to the Republicans as yet

Jersey Senator, Friend of Harding,
Gains Sweeping Victory fa .

Newark, N. J., Sept 27. United
States Senator Joseph F. FTeling
huysen, friend of President Hard

leaders in congress, was nominated
by the Republicans of New Jersey
yesterday in a sweeping victory of
more, than two -to one over George
L. Record, a Jersey City lawyer.
Tbe senator waged his campaign
on two main issues, prohibition and
the tariff. He did not dsicuss the
soldier bonus, against which he
voted. And he rarely answered
Record's charge that he was' sym-
pathetic with monopolies.
In the November elections Sen

at the polls with Governor Edward

Governor Edwards is the champion

Investigation of Police Department Is Promised by
Head of the City Administration in Defend
ing His Summary Actioni
Appointment of anew board of fire and police com
missioners was made by the city council in meeting late
yesterday afternoon, with the explanation that terms, of
the present board, Fred J. Mueller, 1704 Twenty-second
street; Edward Bauersfeld, 1102 Twelfth street, and John
H. Pender, 521 Twenty-first street, have expired.
The appointees are Bert Corken, 1011 Fifteenth
street; W. A. Smith, 1134 Third avenue, and John W.
Carse, 901 Fourteenth street.
Mayor Harry M. Schriver proposed the resolution
which aimed to end the career of the present police civil
service body in the midst of an investigation of the depart
ment. Commissioner Frank Wich, department of streets and
public improvements, and Commissioner William H. Fitz
simmons,' department of public health and safety, voted
aye with the mayor.
Negative votes were cast by City
Clerk Martin T. Rudgren, commis
sioner of accounts and finances,
and by John A. Murrin, commis
sioner of public property. These
two members stated in meeting that
they were not voting against the
three appointees as a personal
matter. Their stand, as outUned
by them verbally, was in disap
proval of throwing out the present
board Jdst as it took steps to
straiehten out obvious defects In
fitndlta "'-the POHce depart-
ment. The -resolution was stated
as follows: ' - '
. "Whereas, Tbe terms of all three
members of the board of fire and
police commissioners of this city
have long since expired and they
have simply been holding over as
such commissioners for periods of
from 16 months, one year and six
months in the different cases;
therefore, be it
"Resolved, That this council does
hereby appoint, for the full term
of three (3) years, the following
named persons as members of the
board of fire and police commis
sioners of this city, viz: Bert Cor
ken, W. A. Smith and John W.
Carse, to take the places on said
board, respectively, of John Pen
der, Ed Bauersfeld and Fred Muel
ler, whose respective terms as Buch
commissioners have expired.
"H. M. SGHRIVER, Mayor."
Searching Investigation.
Members of the present fire and
police board were consulting the
law this morning to ascertain
whether irregularities such as were
charged by outside-persons existed
in the mayor's action in proposing
successors for the present commis
sioners. "We shall expect the new board
to make a most searching and
thorough investigation of the po
lice department," Mayor Harry M.
Schriver said this morning. "In all
probability they will meet today
and organize, after which they will
file their bonds of $1,000 each and
take their oath of office in the of
fice of City Clerk Rudgren.
"I have just instructed City At
torney John K. Scott to appear be
fore the organization meeting of
the new board and charge them to
investigate the charges of the pres
ent board against Chief Thomas
Cox and the department as soon as
the three new commissioners take
office. In this work theytwill have
tbe utmost support of the city ad
ministration." The mayor was
asked why a new board was ap
pointed at this time.
"Because the terms of the old
commissioners expired some time
ago," he answered.
"The history of the case is this:
Commissioner Pender was appoint
ed on April 28, 1919, to serve three
years. Commissioner Bauersfeld for
two years and Commissioner Muel
ler for one year. ' On Oct 11, 1920,
the council voted to extend Muel
ler's term to three years, that it
might expire coincident with that
of Pender's. "
"Therefore, Commissioners Pen
der's and Mueller's terms expired
in April ot this year and Bauers
feld's expired a year ago, in April,
"Wanted to Resign."
Explaining why reappointment of
the old board or of any members
of it was refused in selection of
the new board, tbe mayor stated:
"They have repeatedly threaten
ed to resign. Bauersfeld made a
public statement on July 30 to the
effect that he intended to resign.
The other -members have stated
that they were through with crook
ed politics and signified their de
sire to end service as fire and po
lice commissioners. For that rea
son the council at this time decid
ed to choose successors for them."
: The mayor stated that the board's
suspension of Chief Cox and an
nouncement that it would investi
gate Cox's allegations concerning
"demoralization of the police - de
partment" had nothing to do witb
his action in presenting the reso
lution which virtually dismissed the
present fire and police commis
sioners. 'That act did not affect our ac
tion in this matter," he said, "re
gardless of the fact that we called
a special meeting of the council the
day after the commissioners' sus
pension order and promise of in7
vestlgatlon' - -

The suspension of Chief Cox for
30 days must stand, according to
City Attorney Scott The board's
action will be effective, even though
the board is succeeded by another
The chief was not in the execu
