Temporary Chairman Is to
Sound Party "Keynote."
Massacbusetts Senator Will Urge
Plank for Treaty Reservations,
Party Leaders Declare.
CHICAGO, May 10. Senator Henry
Cabot Lodge of Massachusetts, repub
lican senate leader and author of the
Lodge reservations to the league of
nations covenant, will sound the key
note of the presidential campaign at
the republican national convention at
Chicago, June 8.
The committee on arrangements to
day selected Senator Lodge as tem
porary chairman and voted to recom
mend to the convention some one else
to be chosen permanent chairman, to
relieve Mr. Lode of the strain of
directing the convention. Four years
ago Senator W. G. Harding of Ohio
filled both positions.
The committee's recommendation,
accoVding to several committeemen,
probably will pave' the way for se
lection of ex-Senator Albert J. Bev
eridge of Indiana as permanent chair
man. Borah la Not Mentioned.
' The name of Senator Borah, candi
date of the supporters - of Senator
Johnson for permanent chairman, was
not mentioned during the discussion,
according to Fred Upham. national
Chairman Will H. Hays of the na
tional committee reported on confer
ences held last week with senate
leaders at Washington, where Sen
ator Lodge's selection was urged by
Senators Knox. Brandegee and others.
Party leaders said the league of
nations fight undoubtedly would be
touched npon o,y Senator Lodge and
. that a plank indorsing the peace
treaty and the league covenant with
: the reservations voted by the repub
lican majority in congress would be
in the platform. '
Glesson to Act as Secretary.
L. B. Gleason, secretary of the last
two republican conventions, was
again chosen temporary secretary.
Six assistants, three men and three
women, also were named. They are
Mrs.. Guy Gannett of Maine, Miss
Jeanette A. Hyde of "Jtah. Mrs. Chloe
Adair Morgan of Kansas, R. J. Beamis

Kentucky and red Wilson of Mis
souri. Edward P. Thayer of Indiana, ser-geant-at-arms
ot the national com
mittee, was appointed temporary eer-.geant-at-arms.
Major-General James
A. Ryan of Chicago -was named chief
doorkeeper. His assistants will 11
be ex-service men. General Ryan
was General Pershing's chief of staff
on the Mexican expedition. Ushers

Court Compliments Officials.
The sentence was passed on the rec
ommendation of 'District Attorney
Thomas Lee Woolwine, who told the
court that conviction culd not have
been secured, a view in which the
judge said he concurred. He compli
mented the sheriff and district attor
ney on their conduct throughout the
entire case.
The defendant was so weak from
his self-inflicted wounds and from
his nervous tension that he was per
mitted to keep his seat throughout
the proceedings.
Four alienists, two named by the
court and two by the district attorney,
were heard. The court's experts ex
pressed the view that Watson was not
entirely normal mentally, but said he
thoroughly understood what he had
Done. xne otner alienists said they
believed he was practically normal.

that he was an agent of the United
States government, operating asainst

.airs, wombacher s suspicions were
aroused by his second trip. Watson
had a black' hand grip she had fouad
herself unable to open. She told her
suspicions to a detective agency. The
dates of some of his absences from
home corresponded with those of'safe
robberies in and near Los Angeles
and she believed he was connected
with them.
The detectives asked assistance o
the sheriff's office and two officers
. watched Watson obtain, the black grip
from a. saleswoman at a candy
counter. They rode to Hollywood on
the same car with Watson and th
' grip and watched his house all
night. When he left they searched
the grip. In it they found bonds,
savings stamps, marriage licenses,
letters from women, scores, of tele
grams and storage house receipts,
and they arrested vv atson April 9.
Watson fought, but the officers
cera ho was a government agent and
said if taken to San Diego he could
show them his Credentials.
On the way Watson drew a penknife
and slashed his throat. He turned
! his coat collar uo and hid the wound
until San Diego was reached. He had
bled nearly to death. , H was taken
to a hospital and the next day, while
a patient there, again tried suicide by
slashing his wrists.

Rheumatism's .Pains
Cannot Be Rubbed Away
The Disease Is Deep-seated and
Is Caused by Germs in the
Rheumatism is a sturdy foe, and it
never uses gentle methods with its
victims. If the disease was confined
to the surface there might be some
logic in expecting relief from ' its
clutches by rubbing with liniments
and lotions. But a disease that can
cause so much pain and suffering is
deep-seated, and has its source far
below the surface of the skin.

which you can expect results is a
'Pro:British Idiosyncrasies"
of Admiral Assailed.
Xavy's Record "Untouched" Is Re
ply 'to Charge of Department's
Delay Prolonging War.
WASHINGTON, Kay 10. Secretary
Daniels launched a vigorous counter
offensive against Rear-Admiral Sims
today when he appeared, before the
seriate investigating committee to an
swer charges made .. by the officer
against the navy department's con
duct of the war.
Sweeping criticism of Admiral Sims
occupied Mr. Daniels most of the day,
devoted to reading a carefully-prepared
statement. His attack came as
a preface to the Sims' charges of fail
ure and lack of co-operation and he
arraigned ' the admiral for "pro
British idiosyncrasies," violation, of
naval regulations and criticism of the
"self-sacrificing and successful ef
forts" of his fellow officers.
So far as he dealt today with Ad
miral Sims' charges that delay by
the department had prolonged the war
unnecessarily. Secretary Daniels de
clared the navy's war record stood
"untouched today and for all time
regardless of criticism."
' Charges Held Unfounded.
"As for the American navy's part
in, the great war," he said, "there are
no two opinions at home or abroad.'
"The most serious charges made by
Admiral Sims are without founda
tion and the others are unjustified.
Upon his assumption of what he calls
errors and a small foundation of facts
Admiral Sims has erected a towering
structure of exaggeration and mis
representation." The testimony of other officers, in
possession of first hand knowledge.
Secretary Daniels testified, "should be
accepted by all open-minded men as
an absolute refutation of virtually all
of Admiral Sims' charges." '
Sims, Secretary Daniels told the
committee,, did not measure up to ex
pectations in various ways, of which
he mentioned six, as follows:
"He lacked vision to see that a great
and new project to bar the submarines
from -their hunting grounds should be
promptly adopted and carried out, no
matter what the cost or how radical
'the departure from what ultra
prudent men regarded as impractic
able. British Views Held Accepted.
"He seemed to accept the views of
th British admiralty as superior to
anything that would come from
America, and urged those views even
when the navy department proposed
plans that proved more effective.
"In public speeches and other ways
he gave a maximum of credit to
British effort and minimized what his
country was doing.
"He coveted. Briiish decorations
And, seemed to place a higher value
on honors given abroad than on
honors that could be conferred by the
American government.
"He aspired to become a member
of the British admiralty and wrote
complalningly when ' the American
government declined to permit him
to accept such a tender by the king
of England.
'He claimed protection of merchant
shipping as the main operation ot
forces abroad, failing to appreciate
that the protection of transports car
rying troops to France was the para
mount naval duty until I felt im
pelled Jo cable him peremptorily that
such was our main mission."
Statements Called Reflections.
Secretary Daniels testified that had
he known that in October, 191S, Sims
had made statements reflecting upon
the contributions of the United States
army and navy to winning the war to
members of congress visiting abroad.
he never would have recommended
his promotion. 7
He had not then attacked the Irish
people," Secretary Daniels testified.
I thought then he had only defended
American sailors, a proper thing to
do 'Whan attacked unjustly by what
he termed a lawless element in Cork.
If I had known that he proposed
. . to tell the story of what the
navy 'had done overseas, to denounce
the Irish people as he did in his ar
tides in the World's Work, the per
mission would not nave been granted,
Navy Record Held Untouches.
Secretary Daniels said he had never
publicly or privately criticised Ad
miral Sims for lack of early vision.
Although the department had dis
approved of some of his recommenda
tions, said Secretary Daniels, "I mis
takenly Supposed . . . that he had
accepted and acquiesced, with more
or less grace, in the department's
. . . official actions, as a loval of
ficer accepts the decisions of his su
periors. . . ." The investigating
committee, secretary Daniels said
bad been wearied and the public
nauseated with "an abortive attempt
to rerret out tne mole hills of mis
takes and exaggerate them into
ine navy s recora in the war
stands untouched today and for all
time despite criticisms from within
and without, he said.
Cost lm Lives Contradicted.
Referring to the Sims charge that
delays of the navy department pro
longed the war four months and cost
500.000 lives, Mr. Daniels declared he
had talked with many British admir
als and not one would subscribe to the
Admiral Sims' statement that just
prior to sailing for London he received
the explicit admonition, "Don't let the
British pull the wool over your eves.
we would juntas soon fight them as

as an "explicit admonition," he vio

Al Meadors and W. J. Jenkins
Iieave Penitentiary Wood Camp.
SALEM, Or., May 10. (Special.)
Al Meadors and W. J. Jenkins, who
had been employed at the peniten
tiary, wood camp for several months,
escaped from the bunkhouse there
late last night and - are thought to
be headed for. eastern Oregon, where
they are known to fc.3ve friends.
Meadors was first committed to the
penitentiary from Multnomah county
In 1914, following conviction on a
charge of robbery. He was paroled
in 1918.
Frank Wagner, an ex-convlct,
pleaded guilty to murdering a Chi
nese merchant In" Astoria recently
and exonerated Meadors, arrested
with him, from all blame. As a re
sult of this confession on the part
of Wagner, the officers revoked
Meadors' parole and he was returned
to the prison to serve out his unex
pired term. Wagner is now serving
a life term for the murder.
Penitentiary officials expressed
surprise at Meaders' escape, as he
only recently received intimation
from the parole board that his re
lease , was under consideration. Jen
kins was committed to the prison
from Union county last January.

Hoover's Sussestion Is Declared
League Against Island.
WASHINGTON. May 10. Herbert
Hoover's suggestion that the United
States 6eek an agreement with the
allied nations that there be no inter
national bidding for Cuban sugar
would amount to "a league of nations
to work principally against Cuba.
Carlos Manuel de Cespedes, Cuban
minister to the United States, said
Asserting Mr. Hoover's proposal mat
sugar be rationed to manufacturers
was a domestic affair with whlcn ha
had no concern. Minister de Cespedes
"1 certainly feel I must protest In a
most friendly and Informal manner in
the name of the universal liberty ol
commerce, which was one of the great
thines the world war was tougnt ror,
against his proposal to reach by ne
gotiation an agreement witn a num
ber of powerful European govern
ments not to bid against eaxh other
for that specific commodity.-
"It would appear that Mr. Hoover
proposes in time of peace a war meas
ure against a friendly nation in fact
a league ot nations to wors princi
pally against Cuba, because, as the
result of the laws ot supply and ae
mand, she is justly and legitimately
getting now something around lsVti
cents per pound for the remnants of
her late sugar crop, to a great extent
still in the hands of the producers.
"It should not be forgotten that the
Cuban government and the Cuban
planters are on record as having twice
spontaneously offered to sell the pres
ent crop to the United States sugar
equalization board at 6.50 cents pe
pound, a price that later developments
have positively shown would have
been ruinous to her in the face of
daily sky-rocketing of the prices on
all the articles she is .obliged to buy,
principally from the United States,
to feed and clothe her pecl'le.
The effect of such an agreement,
the minister said, would be to dete
the efforts of Cuban planters to plan
every available acre to cane.
