NEW TORK. April 2. Reports re
ceived from county chairmen In New
Jersey show tnat Major-General
Leonard Wood is the first choice of
that state for the presidential nomina
tion. United States Senator Harding of
Ohio is second choice. Senator John
son, who is actually making a strenu
ous fight for some of New Jersey's
28 national delegates and the presi
dential preference in the primary,
which is to be held on April 27, was
not mentioned by a single chairman
as either the first or the second choice
of his county.
Prohibition is the burning issue as
far as Jerseymen are concerned, if
the testimony of the leaders is to be
taken on this point. Answering the
question: "What in your opinion will
be the paramount issue of the cam
paign of 19207" one oi tne cnmrraeo
put it in this way:
"Undoubtedly the wet issue; next ;
the league of nations." J
Democrats Fw Kdwaraa.
As the greater part of the country
knows by this time. Governor Ed
wards, who was elected on a wet
platform last November and has an
nounced that he will take the repeal
of the ISth amendment to the floor
of the San Francisco convention, is
the favorite candidate of New Jersey
aemocraia m m. t-
nomination. He was mentioned in 8a
per cent of the replies received. Wil

democrat spoken of.

others were divided among Senator
Harding. Governor Lowden of Illinois
' and United States Senator Edge of
New Jersey. One chairman wrote
against Edge's name: "If a candidate,
first, last and always. After Edge,
Harding. There is no particular sen
timent for any one else in this coun
ty." On "second choices" Harding was
high man, getting 41. S per cent of all
cast. The others were divided as fol
lows: Wood. 16 per cent; Butler, 12.5,
and Lowden something more than 4
per cent. Two counties had no second
prohibition Isaac Pinmoiit.
Among the issues touched upon as
feeing in the minds of New Jersey re
. publicans for campaign use, in addi
tion to the "paramount" prohibition
are Americanism, harmonizing capi
tal and labor, the inefficiency and
mismanagement of the democratic ad
ministration in Washington, the tariff
and "business control of business."
Very little mention was made of the
league of nations.
A dispatch from one of the special
"Subject to unexpected . contin
gencies, which may intervene be

maries on April 27, ' General Wood
seems reasonably certain of having
the support of most, if not all. of the
delegates from New Jersey. Although
by no means the unanimous choice
of the republican voters of this state.
General Wood is so far in the lead of
any other aspirant for the nomina
tion that a Wood delegation is
regarded as practically certain.

The Wood people say that the New
'Jersey primary will be a test as to
how their candidate will run in a big
eastern state. The fight Is likely to
be bitter so far as the "Big Four" is
' concerned, as local animosities will
probably play a considerable part in
the campaign. Fight for position in
the state organization will have its
J 'effect upon the result.

v 'Attempt to Be Made to Show That
. President Has Been Harried
! by Conspirator Band
OREGONIAN NEWS BUREAU,
Washington. April 2. Capitalization
of President Wilson's illness as a
campaign asset is to be the demo
cratic mathod of campaign. This wan
made clar by Homer S. Cummings.
chairman of the democratic national
committee, in a remarkable statement
made to newspaper men today.
A deliberate attempt is to be made
by a greu political party organiza
tion to make it appear that any
criticism of the president's official
acts has been with deliberate purpose
of breaking down his health and
b charge was made a few days
ago In Mississippi, by Senator John
rinsirp Williams, but it was regarded
as part of the ebullient eloquence of
the Mississippi senator and uttered
lor dome consumption. But Mr. Cum
mings made the charge seriouslv to
. 4ay, made It without any reserva
tions and without any apparent
realization or the bizarre character
ot the charge.
According to Mr. Cummings. the
president was pursued and is still
pursued by malevolent persons who
combine political and personal hos
tility to the president, and they
hounded and harried him until the
broke down his health, and so on.
Mr. Cummings dwelt with horror
upon the picture of this malevolent
hatred pursuing the president to Ver
sailles, and even interfering with the
accomplishment of his purpose there.
The democratic national chairman
would not mention the names of those
engaged in this conspiracy to break
down Mr. Wilson's health, but he lati-

mated broadly that anyone who dis
agreed with the president was part of
the. cabal and that an earnest desire
for a continuation ' of the president's
good health should have caused one
and all to accept without a murmur
what he did or said or wanted to do.
Mr. Cummings was asked if he ex
cepted Mr. Bryan from this con
spiracy to wreck and tear down the
president's health, but cleverly
evaded this leading and evidently em
The democratic chairman admitted
that the president is still a very sick
man, saying this was a cause of re
gret to those who entertained affec
tloa for the executive and also un
fortunate for the country.
Mr. Cummingrs, having injected this
new phase into campaign considera
tion, made the flat announcement
that the democratic convention would
indorse the president's attitude on the
league. He chose his words carefully
and did not say the president's atti
tude then might not be different from
what it is now, aiid also refused to
be quoted as. saying the convention
would indorse the league without
This led to the suggestion of the
name of Herbert Hoover In the dis
cussion. Mr. Cummings was asked if
the loss of Mr. Hoover seriously af
fected the democratic cohorts.
Mr. Cummings leaned back in his
chair and delivered himself of this
political bon mot:
"It is a sad thing to see so es
sentially a democrat engaged in the
vain effort of trying to liberalize the
WOMEN ANNOY EMBASSY
Police Say Unable to Interfere Un

WASHINGTON. April 2. Effort, of
the state department today to have
the Washington police authorities
break up the picketing of the British
embassy by women favorable to an
Irish republic failed. The police said
tnat m the light of the decision of the
federal courts in the case of the suf

A dozen women marched ud and

MANY ALIENS RELEASED
Interest In Fund Displayed In Un
expected Quarters and Sub
scriptions Received by Stall.
With but two more working days
in wh.ich to raise $18,000, Y. W. C. A.
workers are redoubling their efforts
to bring to a successful close the
$40,000 campaign to carry on social
service work in Portland. The drive,
which has been in progress since Mon
day, has thus far netted $22,000.
Interest in the fund has come from
unexpected quarters. While some
people are showing a lack of sym
pathy others in the city, like H.Cleve
land, for example, feel differently
about it. Mr. Cleveland, vyho is a
bachelor and wouldn't be expected
to have any particular interest in
the Y. W. C. A., came into head
"I have never been solicited and
thought perhaps you did not have
my name," he said. And he proerred
a $100 liberty bond as his contribu
tion. More than one subscription has
come In through the mail and the
donors have been from every walk
of life. Often the gifts prove to be
an expression of gratitude from
those who have received aid from the
organization. For instance, Mrs. E.
Campeau sent the following note with
her $5 check.
"I, an elderly woman, wish to ex
press my thanks for the protection
and kind attention rendered me by
the Y. W. C. A. I am especially
grateful also for the assistance given
me by the Traveler's Aid, as I ar
rived here late at night, homeless. I
have traveled much, but have never
been treated so kindly as I have at
the Portland Y. W. C. A." '"

at other times assistant secretary, the
responsibility for laxity in the depor

Immigration inspectors who have
testified before the committee recent

timony that would sublect them to
charges of insubordination, but in
answer to questions they have dis

where an alien booked for deporta
