rES MOIXES, la.. May 10. (Spe

ference this morning Dr. W. W.
Y'oungson secured the floor from the
presiding bishop, Edwin H. Hughes,
on a privileged motion and offered
the following resolution:
"Whereas, the general conference Is
highly honored in the presence of
one of the elect women of American
Methodism; a woman well versed in
the history, policy and personnel of
our church; one who for years shared
with her husband the experiences of
our itinerant Methodism and who

Bishop Anderson to escort Mrs.
Thomas B. Hughes to the platform in
church. The conference stopped busi
ness for a few minutes and Bishop
AiciJoweii led in prayer.
More than 3000 resolutions and
memorials have been presented to
date; but none was argued with more
eloquence than that by Miss Madeline
Worthward of Kansas, the first of
the 40 women delegates present to ad
dress the conference. She asked that
women be accorded the sacred ordina
tion as ministers and given equal
Btanding with the male members of

ARTY SPLIT THREATENED
When G. E. Hamaker, democratic
county chairman, sought from Presi-
ent "Wilson political thunder to use
gainst Senator Chamberlain he
tarted something. While Chairman
Hamaker sought only something with
which to fight Chamberlain he caused
the president to make a reply which
forecasts trouble at the national con
vention In San Francisco.
President Wilson's message to Mr.
Hamaker insisted that the treaty of
Versailles be adoptevithout chang
ing the dot of an 1 or the crossing of
t. W. J. Bryan has taken the posi
tion that democrats should com
promise on the treaty rather than
have the whole thing lost.
Mr. Wilson, if he can control the
San Francisco convention, will insist
on making the treaty without res
ervations the party Issue. Mr. Bryan,
who has managed to control more
than one convention when he wasn't
meant to, can be expected to oppose
the plan of Mr. Wilson.
Letter Also Sent President.
Thus the Intriguing inquiry sent to
the president by the county chairman
pened up trouble of more than state
wide importance. There is no ques
tion but that Mr. Wilson was thor-
ughly familiar with local conditions
and knew that his reply would be
sed against Senator Chamberlain.
Mr. Hamaker did more than send the
brief question by wire which prompt
ed the president s statement regard
ing democrats and the league of na
Before the Inquiry was telegraphed
Mr. Hamaker had written to Mr. Wil
on a sizzling letter regarding the
enatorial campaign situation in Ore
gon, mainly dealing with Senator
Chamberlain. This letter Mr. Wilson
had in his possession when he replied
to the telegram. Mr. Wileon has thus
far made no statement regarding the
contents of the letter. If Mr. Wilson
does not see fit to make the com
munication public Mr, Hamaker can
not, ethically, do so.
Chamberlain Antts Aided.
It Is pointed out that Mr., Wilson did
not have to answer Mr. Hamakers
nquiry. He could have ignored It.
But, for reasons of his own, the presl
dent not only made a reply but went
a step beyond by sending it by tele
graph and having copies distributed
newspaper correspondents by Sec
retary Tumulty so that wide publicity
could be obtained.
This statement, of Mr. Wilson Is
the trump card which the anti-Cham
berlain democrats will play in the prl
manes. It is to be used to indicate
hat H. G. Starkweather is the choice
of Mr. Wilson for the senatorial nomi
nation, because Mr. Starkweather's
slogan is for the treaty without reser
vations. On the other hand, while
this document from the president will
have weight with strict party demo
crats. It will be taken under advise
ment by the democrats who still be
lieve in Bryan.
Spilt la Considered Likely.
Senator Chamberlain voted for th
treaty, as Wilson wanted, and finally
supported the Lodge reservations
after Bryan Urged democrats to
compromise. This being the case the
Hamaker plan of campaign against
Senator Chamberlain is likely to
cause a split in the party, causing an
alignment of Wilsonites and Bryan
ites. Anyway, the Bryan following,
which has always been considerable
in Oregon, will be driven away from
Starkweather and sent to Chamber
