THE GREEN EVILLE DAILY SUN, TUESDAY, DEC. 9. 1919.
THKEI G. 0. P. to Select Convention City WASHINGTON, D. C, Lec. 9. ; United Press.) Members f the ex ecutive committee of the Republican National committee began arriving here today in preparation of the meeting here tomorrow to pick a city in which to hold the 1920 republicon national convention, where a candi date for President of the United States will be chosen. , Chairman Will H. Hays was among the first to arrive. Many conferences were being arranged for tonight and arly tomorrow. In addition to the committeemen, there were already on the ground a dozen or more delega tions here to urge the selection of a city as the convention meeting place. Prominent among them were civic' and political leaders from Chicago j and St. Louis, where Charles E. 1 Hughes and President Wilson were respectively named in 1916. j There was considerable talk among politicians of selecting Chicago as i the permanent convention city for the ! republican party. Mid-western head-! quarters have recently been opened j in that city, it was pointed out, and many have for years urged that the dtf y thQscn as regular battle ground for candidates for nomina tion,, and for the'additional reason of its central location. .. '. Chicago has had the convention every four years with one exception, Bince 1896, and it would seem the bal ance of favor is in that direction. " Chicago claims to be about the most centrally located city, whose auditoi rium is known to be large enough for the party, and claims that it is the railroad center of the nation. The point of accessibility by railroad is one of the prime factors, committee men say. Asbury Park, a new factor in the competition, lauds the desirability of its "cooling breezes to sooth the fe vered, brows of heated arguefiers." Asbury has a fair-sized auditorium, and claims that her hotel accommoda tions are of the best. However, committeemen declare geopraphic location is one of the prime necessities, and any coast city is at a great disadvantage. St.' Louisans headed by Paul V. Bunn, secretary of the St. Louis Chamber of Commerce, however, in sisted that the Mound City be select- I ' - , m You may not know what "brand of cigars he likes;" but you know he likes pretty Neck Shop Early After "all's said and done," what's more useful for "Him" than a Suit or Overcoat?

Rooms are available in St. Louis for 8,000 delegates, it was said. St. Paul and San Francisco were also to make fights for the honor of entertaining the convention dele gates. Minneapolis civic leaders have joined hands with St. Paul in efforts to attract the gathering to the Twin Cities of the North. California boost ers asked consideration for San Fran cisco, arguing that their state will be a pivotal one in the presidential fight and that the holding of the conven tion on the coast will materially aid republicans in carrying that section. The disadvantage San Francisco admits is its distance from the east, but puts forth its ability to care for any crowd that will attend, proving this by the way it took care of the huge exposition crowd. Lack of rooms and halls for enter taining the delegates and holding the convention have kept other cities out of the race. Just Agreement For Ending Strike Believed Found WASHINGTON, Dec. 8. Attor ney General Palmer announced short- ily after midnight last night that an j agreement was reached here Satur- ! day between government officials and John L. Lewis; acting President, and William Green, secretary treasurer of the United Mine Workers under which a compromise proposal for ter mination of the soft coal strike will be submitted to a meeting of the ex ecutive committee of the mine work ers at Indianapolis next Tuesday, The compromise which is hot de scribed in the statement, was propos- 1 ed by President Wilson "looking to a ! speedyerminrition and adjustment of the entire controversy," the state ment says. Lewis and Green will urge acceptance of the proposal. Mr. Palmer's statement follows: . "A conference was held at the De partment of Justice in Washington on Saturday, at which were present the attorney general, Mr. Tumulty, sec retary to the President, and William Green, secretary-treasurer, of the United Mine Workers of America, with a view to reaching an under standing between the government and the miners which would result in a settlement of the coal strike." "At this conference was submitted a definite, concrete proposition from the President looking to a speedy termination of the strike situation and adjustment of the entire contro versy. The officers of the United Mine Workers, in response to the suggestion of the President, agreed to and have called a meeting of the general scale committee, the repre sentatives of all the district organiza tions and the international executive j board of the United Mine Workers, to be held in Indianapolis on Tuesday, December 9th, at 2 o'clock p. m., at sidered and its acceptance by the miners urged by Mr. Lewis and Mr; Green. The attorney general will ba in Indianapolis on Tuesday." The announcement came as a com plete surprise as government officials had not made known the fact that the union leaders had been called in to conference or that new proposals were under consideration.
