Reaction Complicate Task.
Complicating the task temporarily,
was a reaction against the platform
programme worked out by some lead
ers in Washington. The movement
against the programme, apparently,
nevertheless was based on an objec
tion that republican senators had
taken too free a hand in pre-conven-rtion

several senators, representing ex
tremes of republican opinion on the
treaty, the long senate fight over the

which all republicans- can stand.
Hard Treaty Hattle I.oom.
The lrreconcilabtes and the mild
reserva tionists of the senate are pre
pared for a hard battle on the treaty
plank. Senator Borah of Idaho, a
leader of the irreconcilables, arrived
late in the day with a plank which

of the foreign policies handed down
by George Washington and James
Monroe and as advocated and re
effirmed many times in republican
platforms since 1S60.
Senator Borah was not ready to
make the Johnson-Borah plank pub
lic, but said it would be presented to
the resolutions committee.
It was learned that the mild reser
va tionists' plank would demand a
constructive policy for ratification of
the Versailles treaty with protective
reservations and an indorsement of
the stand of senators who voted for
the Lodge reservations. Senator
Lodge, who arrived today, predicted
that an agreement between the vari
ous groups would be reached.
Kalla Plank Opposed.
There was a general feeling that
little trouble would be encountered In
bringing an agreement on the Mex
ican plank. The declaration prepared
at Washington by Senator Fall of
New Mexico, however, providing for
American intervention unless Mexico
mended its ways ran into some opposi
tion, and it was suggested that it
might be modified to omit altogether
the reference to possible military n
terference by this government.
In that case, the plank would de

ord quietly passed out from the

but that if it were decided to have one
made, it would be delivered by Nathan
L. Miller of Syracuse, one of the New

The strategy of the Hoover mana
gers, it was said, was to depend on
the convention failing to cast a ma
jority vote for any candidate and to
place Mr. Hoover in nomination, prob
ably without a formal speech, at what
they consider to be the proper moment.
The name of Governor Calvin Cool-
idge of Massachusetts will be placed
before the convention by Speaker. F.
H. Gillett of the house of representatives.
Reports earlier in the evening cred
iting the Hoover headquarters with
announcing that a nominating speech
would be made by Judge Miller
brought a disclosure of the plan and
the following statement by Miller:
I hav not authorized anyone to

This is not to say that Hoover is

FRUIT OFFICE CREATED
John A. 3ead of Pittsburg Named
Vice-President at Seattle.
SEATTLE,- Wash., June 6. (Spe
cial.) Creation of the office of v'ce
president and election to that post of
John' A. Mead of Pittsburg, who has
arrived in Seattle, was announced to
day by Reginald H. Parsons, presi
dent of the Northwestern Fruit ex
change. Mr. Mead' has spent 24 "years with
service companies and resigned a high
executive post with the Pittsburg
railways company to accept the of
fer in Seattle. Mr. Parsons said he
was rated as an expert in economics,
corporate, tax and financial matters,
and as such would fit in well with
certain Intricate problems confronting
the fruit industry.

the boldness to do it, unless he intends
thus by a dramatic exit to bid fare
well to his own candidacy.
Who la Not Wanted la Knows.
It is easy to see that the delegates
as a wnoie would Ditteriy resent tne
washing of the republican soiled linen
in the official presence of the con
vention. It may be justifiable strat
egy to use the senate forum and the
columns of the newspapers to make
exposures of other candidates' meth

It will be a poor way to start a
Johnson stampede. If there is a
good way, Johnson will be glad to
adopt it, of course, but nobody" knows
what it is. Here in the 1920 conven
tion are delegates who are seasoned
to political sensation and they may
not be readily swept off their feet
in any sudden rush of emotion pro
duced by Johnsonian or uorahvlan
eloquence on any subject.' They may
not know whom they want, but they
certainly know whom they do not
want. There may be no outstanding
leaders, but there is a pretty well
disciplined lot of followers, some of
whom went through the bitter Roose
veltian ordeal of 1912 .and the lesser
ordeal of 1916, without the twitch
of an" eyelash. All this is another
way of saying that Johnson has a
difficult task. The Johnson bludgeon
is more likely to hurt than-to help.
Deadlock Appears Certain.
