Chairman Cummings. Tells
Party to Defend Wilson.
United and Aggressive Action i
Campaign of 1920 Solicited in
Address to Omaha Leaders,
OMAHA, Neb., July. 24. "Blow for
blow" was the slogan and rallying" call
to democrats here tonight when Homer
K.. Cummings, chairman of the" demo
cratic national .committee, addressed
a crowded meeting of Nebraska demo
crat ic leaders at the Omaha "Athletic
The national committee was repre
sented not only by Mr. Cummings. but
by Mrs. Klizabeth Bass, associate mem
ber of the committee, and Mrs. Antoin
ette Funk of Washington, D. C, head
of the women's editorial bureau of the
democratic national committee.
"W. D. Jamieson, director of finance
for the national committee," also took
part in the day's speaking.
"The time has come," said Mr. Cum
mings, "for democrats not only to stand
together, but to stand together ag
gressively, supporting an affirmative
programme- by positive- action. If I
have any power in t h-e o a n sel of the
party t propose to uso it for pressing
every advantage . that comes t our
hands. We have the aggressive now
and we shall not lose it.
Criticism of AViison Scored. -
MThe campaign of 1920 has already
begun. I am ticed of having men
criticise the president on petty
grounds. The manner in which hennas
been traduced has been the moat
shameful, dastardly, disgraceful, hu
miliating spectacle that this country
has ever seen.
"The time is here when democrats
should resent this sort . of thing, when
they should give blow for. blow and
then some."
Speaking of what he termed the ob
structive tactics of partisan repub
licans in the senate as regards the
league of nations covenant, , Mr. Cum
mings said: '
"No man and no 'nation intentionally
placing obstacles in the way of a
league of nations will survive long
enough to outlive the memory pf such
an offense against humanity and civil
ization. League Issue "Cleareat."-
MThe covenant of the league of na
tions has become one of the great facts
of history. The treaty of peace, in
cluding the covenant of the league,
must be accepted or. rejected. Sena
torial critics can no longer find a com
fortable hiding place under tbe pretext
that they favor a league of nations but
are opposed to tbe suggested form of a
league of nations. The issue is clear
cut and unmistakable. They are ei
their in favor of this particular league
or they are opposed to any league at
all. -
"It is said the praised covenknt of
peace is too vague. It is one of the
chief merits of the draft that it does
not pretend to pass upon every con
ceivable question, but provides within
itself a certain degree of flexibility
so that new adjustments may be made
as nsw conditions develop and so that
readjustments may be made where er
rors have crept in. The criticsm of
vagueness is the product of superficial
minds. The constitution of the United
States is looked upon as one of the
most perfect of public documents, and
yet it required ten amendments within
a year after its original promulgation,
and it has been amended from time to
time since then.
"We ask for the establishment of a
league of nations because we know
that if it is not now secured it may
remain forever an unrealized dream."
Committee Appointed to
v Pleee Rate Offer
by Government.
LONDON", July 24. (By the Associ
ated Press.) Today was fully occu
pied with conferences betweeit Premier
lloyd George and other members of
the government and the mining in
terests and closed with the prospect of
settlement. According to the strike
leaders in Yorkshire, the whole trouble
arose through an attempt by the coal
controller to evade the piece rate pro
visions of the Sankey report, which
the government had adopted as a work
ing basis.
One result of today's conference be
tween the premier and the miners"
executive was a new piece rate offer
on the part of the governmnt, w-hich
the miners federation appointed a sub
committee to consider.
The sub-committee held a conference
this evening with the coal controller.
No official report of this conference has
been issued, but it was unofficially
stated that when the miners' federa
tion meets in the morning to consider
the sub-committee's report there is
every prospect that a settlement will
be reached.
In the event of the government's offer
being accepted it involves the appoint
ment of a amall commlttee representing:
the coal mines department and the min
ers federation, to adjust -a formula
adapted to the requirements of the dif
ferent districts.
The settlement will come none too
soon. Evidence is accumulating hourly
of how heavy the coal shortage is
pressing on all industries and public
services. The government has Already
stopped the export of coal from Cardiff
and the railways have plans laid, for a
severe restriction of their services to
begin Mondav if the strike is not set
tled. A satisfactory aspect of the atrike Is
the fact that there have been no dis
orders of any kind and no attempt to
hinder the naval men who have been
engaged in keeping as far as possible
the mines from flooding. The situation
in regard to pumping and ventilation
underwent a great improvement today.
There have been some extensions of
the strike movement, but'at the same
time many strikers have resumed work,
notably in Nottinghamshire, where it
was announced late tonight that the
strike had ended.
Straw Vote Shows "Drys" Leading
13 Ballots.
National prohibition won out by 13
voles yesterday on the straw ballot
being: taken among tbe ex-soldiers,
who call for victory, buttons, at the
army recruiting" . office. Universal
military service made the largest gain
of any of the questions, and was the
only one to poll over 100 votes out of
the 137 cast. The league of nations
developed iuore opposition than on any
previous day. Woman suffrage in
creased in popularity, and the French

Cardinal Expects Congress Will
Ratify Document in End.
BALTIMORE", July 24. Cardinal Oib
bons today authorized the following
statement with regard to his attitude
toward the league of nations:
"It is my firm conviction that after
thorough and honest discussion in both
houses of congress both parties will
finally arrive at a common agree
ment, based on a Just and sincere
league of nations that will give us a
reasonable guarantee against the hor
rors of war in the future as well as
well-grounded assurance of lasting
peaoe, without in any way impairing
American sovereignty or surrendering
any American right, and without in
volving us in entangling alliances. 1
am sure that an early adoptian of the
league of nations will infuse intense
joy throughout the United States with
out distinction of party, and will be
haiLed with satisfaction
by the allied
powers of( Europe.'

Reinstatement of 2 Who Re-fused
to Fly Also Asked.
Postmaster Praeger Replies. When
Conditions Are Unfavorable Men
Have Option of Resigning.
BELMONT PARK. X. T., July 24.
Asserting they are forced to fly not
only in bad weather but In unsafe ma
chines, 20 aerial maU pilots today
served notice on Second Assistant Post-master-Ueneral
Praeger at Washing
ton that they would refuse to fly to
morrow unless reinstatement was
granted two brother pilots who they
assert were discharged because they
refused to take the air Tuesday on ac
count of fllg;.
The airmen tonight received from
Mr. Praeger a telegram stating that
the orders applying to the two pilots
had not been revoked and asserting
that where flying conditions are such
that they cannot operate, they have the
option to resign."
Safer Machines Desired.
According to the men at Belmont
field, the strike will affect the aviators
at Chicago, Cleveland, Bellefonte as
well as Belmont park. They claim the
aerial mail to Chicago and Washing
ton will be tied up unless the depart
ment reinstates the two discharged
pilots and promises to make the ma
chines safer for the pilots who remain
in service.
Leon Smith and E. Hamilton Lee are
the two pilots whose reinstatement is
asked. They were serving on the Mew
York-Washington route.
The aviators asserted that since June
15, during the recent rainy period, no
less than 15 accidents occurred, in
which ten planes were demolished and
two pilots killed.
Indicators Wanted by Men.
The airmen declared thev had for-'
mally protested to the postoff ice depart
ment mat tne planes supplied them
were poorly adapted for flvinz. even in
good weather. They further asserted
hey had asked for stabilize -s. which.
in a fog, would show whether the men
were flying on an even keel or unside
down. These Indicators, the men say,
cost $75, but they were informed, thev
say, by Mr. Praeger that they "should
steer by compass, as.the turn indicators
were too expensive."
The pilots further complained that
under the present system mechanics
ho work in the hangars and never
fly receive equal pay with the men
who risk their lives carrying the aerial
mail. This pay ranges from 12000 to
J360J a year, they said.
The aerial mail pilots are not em
ployed under the civil service law.
They are civilians with the same status
as postmen. Virtually all are former
army aviators.

The commission will adjust claims
which congress has decided shall be
paid to. the mining men as a result of
the losses sustained through the revo
cation of government contracts after
the signing of the armistice.
The government, more than two
years ago. Issued a nation-wide ap
peal for miners to prospect and develop
their property for chrome and man
ganese ore. both of which were sorely
needed at that time In the manufacture
of war materials.
In response to this appeal, numerous
miners and corporations began heavy
development work and were getting
prepared to turn out these two grades
of ore when hostilities were brought to
close. The mining men consequently
suffered heavy financial losses.
Congress appropriated $8,500,000 to
recompense the miners for the losses
they sustained, and the commission.
