Selection of Kansas Governor
JPIaee of AVood in Nomination
Adds lo His Prominence.
(Copyright. 1!t::0, by New York Evening
Post. Published by Arrangement.)
CHICAGO. 111.. June b. (Special.)
The chances of the republican nomina
tion going to a dark horse are at
least sufficiently strong to justify a
survey of this tield to see what the
.material is.
"Dark horse" Is a vague term, to
the "generous elasticity of which a
good many public men are under ob
ligations. Frequently the fact that a
man is "prominently mentioned among
the dark horses"' merely means that
he is an agreeable fellow, that he has
never committed any odious crime and
that the newspaper men like him and
are glad to "give him a hand" on
other occasions.
To be mentioned as a dark horse
merely means that the delegates from
a certain state are happy to give one
of their number a little favorable pub
licity. Ten In Republican Stable.
In the present article the term is
restricted to men who have some de
gree of serious possibility. Of such,
aside from the four major candidates
who were in the primaries, Wood
Louden, Johnson and Harding, there
are ten who have in some degree
fcuch a relation to the situation as a
whole that they could be said to be
in one degree or another real possi
bilities. Among these ten Governor Allen,
of Kansas, is not only first alpha
betically but, in addition, has one
element of strength that none of the
others have. Governor Allen is a
residuary legatee. Those of us who
have watched the Wood movement
closely have all along had the feel
ing that Governor Allen is the second
choice of many of the Wood en
Allen Given Boost.
Always in the back of the heads of
the Wood workers seems to be the
thought that if they should fail with
Wood they would then preserve the'.r
front as compactly as they could and
deliver as large a block of their dele
gates as possible to Governor Allen.
This belief on the part of observers
has now been confirmed by General
Wood's choice of Governor Allen to
make his nomination speech.
To Governor Allen, assuming I re
peat, that it becomes a matter of
dark horses at all, this opportunity
to get himself before the convention
in a favorable way is a great asset,
and Governor Allen has far too much
imagination to fail to be aware of it.
This is precisely the situation
which resulted in the nomination of
James A. Garfield in 1880. Garfield
tame to that convention not as a
candidate himself, but for the pur
pose of advancing the claims of his
friend, Senator John Sherman. Gar
field made the nominating speech.
Both the speech and the man im
pressed the convention in a strongly
friendly way. and later on, after o3
ballots had been taken with no
change among the leaders. Garfield
came to the front.
Governor Allen knows political his
tory as well as any of us. and he
cannot fail to be impressed by the
a nalogy.
Allen Original Progressive.
In the working out of the present
convention, assuming that it comes
to a case of dark horses, the fact
that he is to make the nomination
speech for one of the principal can
didates, ought to give Governor Al
len more momentum in the beginning
than any of the other dark horses.
In addition, Governor Allen would
naturally be expected to be the bene
ficiary of a certain amount of Sen
ator Johnson's strength.
Allen was an original progressive,
and presumably whatever elements
of Roosevelt strength there are in
the coming convention would have
the most friendly feeling for him.
Your correspondent believes that
there are at least three other dark
horse possibilities who have rather
better chances than Governor Allen:
But it It comes to a case of dark
horses at all, jour correspondent ex
pects to see a considerable demon
stration over the Kansas governor.
Butler Has Strong Points.
Considering the dark horses al
phabetically, the next is Nicholas
Murray Butler of New York. When
you reflect upon Mr. Butler's position
you are impressed with how very
narrow is the distance between But
ler as an impossibility and Butler as
an extremely strong possibility. To
think of Butler as having no chance
at all is becoming a habit and like
many habits of mind, it has lasted
beyond the time when the facts jus
tified it.
Mr. Butler ha3 hung around the
outer lges of republican politics,
acting as a hewer of wood in writing
Platforms and the like, so long that he
does not look as big as he would
he were coming on the scene today
as a new figure. Butler was Taft's
running mate in the most inglorious
race tha republican party ever made,
the one in 1912, when the party car
ried only two states. By reason of
that fact the public, and especially the
minor politicians came to look upon
Butler as sharing lafts weakness.
The truth is Butler has talents and
experience of a sort to make him a
better presidential candidate and a
better president than Taft was.
Prfftent Job Is Handicap.
Another of Mr. Butler's handicaps
is one of those utterly minor and
whimsical analogies which frequently
have weight until we examine them
closely. Butler i3 a college president.
"Wilson was the head of a college and
the republicans think that Wilson
made a very poor president. That is
a course of reasoning which only
needs a second look to disappear in
mist. If Dr. Butler should happen to
have in the convention one resolute
friend with the ability and the will
to make a forceful speech in his be
half, these quiet immaterial handi
caps of his would evaporate. Butler
will come close to naving as many
friends among the delegates on th
floor as any other man. For years it
has been his hobby to know the re
publican leaders in most of the states
and many or the cities ana counties.
Largely as a device for balancing
his preoccupation with academic af
fairs, he has kept in touch with the
realities of public life by this means
Many republicans In positions of
power through the country write to
him for information and advice and
when they come to New York call
upon him. One strong man, believing
in Butler and making a speech that
reflected his faith, might very read
ily transform the convention from one
which regards Butler as an accepted
impossibility to one that would regard
him as an ideal candidate under pres
ent conditions.
The next in alphabetical order is
Governor Calvin Coolidge of Massa
chusetts. In the judgment of your cor
respondent Governor Coolidge is one
of the first three possibilities among
the dark horses and if the presidency
does not go to Governor Coolidge. it
can be said, with almost complete
confidence that Governor Coolidge has
the best chance of all for the vice
presidency, always assuming of course,
that the presidency itself does not
go to a quarter which makes Gover
nor Coolidge ineligible geographically.
Hays V'nusually Popular.
Next alphabetically comes Will
Hays, the national chairman. Every
few weeks during the campaign a
wave of friendly gossip about Hays
as a possibility has gone from one end
of the country to the other. When
ever this gossip came to the attention
of Hays himself, he was quick to
frown upon it. Hays has a way of
expressing himself in phrases and his
phrase for this was "An administrator
never buys at his own sale." By that
axiom Mr. Hays meant that for him
to permit himself to be nominated
would cast doubt on his personal good
faith in the management of the na
tional committee; that it would be as
sumed that he had not meant what he
said when he declared that it was his
business to be absolutely neutral as
among the various candidates. Un
questionably, if the convention gets
into an acrimonious snarl, there is
always the possibility of some one
person arising and bringing peace by
mentioning the name of one man that
everybody in the convention has a
feeling of affection for.
Hays is universally popular among
the members of the national commit
tee and among the whole rank and
file of the party workers who make
up the delegaes. but Hays' true
friends and he himself would be the
first to insist that there are other
dark horses of greater availability.
Hays has never held any important
elective office; has never even served
in a legislature. His experience has
been wholly that of a party manager,
coming up from the Sullivan (Indiana)
county committee through the Indi
ana state committee to his present
Hoover and Hnrches Considered.
Next, Hoover. Those who are pro
moting the Hoover candidacy are now
focusing their efforts on making a
demonstration before the convention
in Cnicago. It is their plan to print
a daily paper during convention week
devoted chiefly to impressing Hoover
upon the members of the convention.
In short, such hopes as the Hoover
managers now have are all In one
form or other an expectation of being
able to persuade or stampede the
convention. On the possibility of this
the meat of all that can be said is
that if Roosevelt could not stampede
the republican convention in 1912,
Hoover is not likely to do it in 1920.
Ex-Justice Hughes is a very real
possibility, if the convention gets
hito that kind of a snarling jam which
fas the one condition that can lead fx
a dark horse at all. in the event the
party leaders are apt to have a mo
ment of serious mood in which .they
look about to find the best they (lave
in the way of experience and ability.
In such a mood there can be no ques
tion whatever that Hughes' name
would come far to the front. Hughes
is decidedly among the first three of
the dark horse possibilities.
Knox Classes Among; Kirst Three.
Knox is also among the first three.
It Is quite possible for the nomination
to go either to Lowden or Wood with
out the name of Knox ever being
heard on the convention floor. But it
is equally possible for Knox to come
forward in a very powerful way.
Knox is the real choice of the bulk
of the republican senators who com
pose the "irreconcilables" on the issue
of the league of nations.
Johnson is commonly supposed to
be their candidate; and up to a cer
tain point he is, but the irreconcil
ables ha; no illusion about the pos
sibility of really getting the nomina
tion for Johnson; and Knox, to put it
in the idiom common to vernacular
politics and cards, is the irreconcil
ables' "ace in t' e hole." That thet-e
are political ability and a high order
of brains among these irreconcilable
senators nardly needs to be demon
strated, after their success on the
eague of nations issue. If they really
put their shoulders behind Knox he
may go far.
Senator Lenroot of Wisconsin was
frequently mentioned as a dark horse
some months ago, but his availibility
before tne country at large was im
paired by the fact that the faction of
the Wisconsin politics with which
Senator Lenroot is identified will be
rather decidedly beaten by the La
Follette faction.
Senator Miles Poindexter of Wash
ngton has the earnest backing of a
group of enthusiastic men. The chief
of this group behind Senator Poin
dexter is ex-Senator Jonathan Bourne
of Oregon.
Governor William C. Sproul of
Pennsylvania has the distinction of
having been picked as the most prob
able nominee by so astute an observer
as William Jennings Bryan. Governor
bproul decidedly is among the dark
horse possibilities: but just how he
figures and to what extent he figures,
is interwoven with two things, now
uncertain. The first is the fact that
he comes from the same state as Sen
ator Knox. The second is that un
fathomable tangle of considerations
grouped around the questions of
whether Penrose will be at the con
vention, how much power he will have
and what he really wants.
At this point, alphabetically, and in
the order of probability also, comes
Taft. If it becomes a case of dark
horses, undoubtedly there will be mo
ments when the party leaders in a
serious mood will survey their avail
able material, especially their men
of experience. Any such survey must
necessarily include the party's and
the country's only living ex-president.
But it seems to me that at that mo
ment Taft will be considered along
side Hughes; and that of the two.
Hughes will seem both the stronger
and the more available.
In the end let it again be empha
sized that these dark horses will en
ter the situation only when and if
the principal contenders. Wood, Low
den. Johnson and Harding, have been
Aspirant Takes Personal
Charge of Headquarters.
Statement Declares Candidate Is
for Unselfish Participation
in World's Affairs.
CHICAGO, June 6. Dr. Nicholas
Murray Butler of New York today
joined the republican presidential
aspirants who have' taken personal
charge of their convention headquar
ters. In his announcement, he said
"some progress" was being made
toward framing a platform "declara
tion of principles," adding that he
was glad to find that his views as to
the importance of that declaration
were shared i-y many delegates with
whom he had talked.
"The people are in no mood to be
trifled with," said Dr. Butler. "They
want to know with precision what
the republican party will undertake
to do if it carries the election."
Broad Poller Predicted.
Dr. Butler predicted that "Ameri
cans generally" would "never accept
that narrow and selfish international
policy" which was, he said, embodied
in the position ot Senators Johnson
and Borah, as to isolation of the
United States from the work of the
world, "nor any other merely neg
ative policy."
The fundamentals of an acceptable
American international policy, he said,
were to bring into existence the inter
national court of justice, co-operate
with other nations "in devising ways
and means to establish and maintain
international peace" and unite with
them to punish violations of interna
tional public law."
Zones Are Advocated.
Amplifying this outline given in
his formal statement. Dr. Butler said
he favored division of the world into
three zones, European, American and
oriental, the peoples of each zone to
be responsible for the maintenance of
order there insofar as questions in
volving their own "primary interest"
were concerned. He was asked if that
meant employment of troops out of
the country, and said that it did,
within the zones.
The real history of article 10 had
never been publicly told. Dr. Butler
said. It had been written, he said.
by certain people before the war
and sent to President Wilson, who.
Dr. Butler said, sent it to the senate
foreign relations committee with a
proposal that it be substituted for the
Monroe doctrine. The committee, he
added, rejected it "unanimously."
between Senator Watson of Indiana
and Ogden L. Mills of New York, the
latter chairman of the platform and
policies committee, appointed by
Chairman Hays. Neither was regard
ed as the candidate of any faction,
but there is a possibility that a can
didate from the Johnson-Borah group
will be brought forward because of
the probable contest over the league
of nations plank.
For the credentials committee
chairmanship Senator Smoot of Utah,
veteran of several conventions, was
prominently mentioned.
Judge J. C. Prichard of North Caro
lina will be proposed .for the vice
presidential nomination if members of
the North Carolina, delegation become
convinced that he cannot be nomi
nated for the presidency.
Ex-United States Senator Martin
Butler made this announcement today.
All-Xight Sessions May Be Neces
sary to Prepare Report
for Convention.
CHICAGO, June 6. Campaign man
gers today prepared to renew before
he convention credentials committee
heir contests over delegates decided
by the republican national committee.
Some of the contests may be carried
to the convention floor. There are
possibilities that virtually all of the
37 contests will be appealed to the
credentials committee to be appointed
next Tuesday, with prospects of all-
night sessions to prepare a report to
he convention Wednesday.
The sweep of the Lowden forces In
he national committee's decisions, it
is believed, will furnish the principal
work for the credentials committee.
Chairman Hays today gave out a
statement declaring it "significant
that all contests Involving large num
bers were disposed of by unanimous
nd viva voce action.
"Half of the contests had been de-
ided." Mr. Hays said, "by unanimous
action and the third day's session was
far advanced before there was even a
rollcall. As I recall, there were only
four rollcalls on contest matters dur-
ng the week. The diversity of the
vote cast, which was 36 to 12 in the
0th Minnesota, 8 to 34 in the 4th
Georgia, 16 to 29 in the 4th Okla
homa and 20 to 23 in the Missouri
district in which both delegations
were denied seats, indicated that the
vote in each case was on the merits
of the contest or matter presented to
the committee."

CALEX1CO, Cal., June 6. A recom

ed a train for Los Angeles, Cal.
where his family resides.
Several thousand men gathered in
Mexican today and engaged in
demonstration in favor of retaining
in office Governor Cantu, whose
guests they were at three barbecues.
Governor Cantu told the crowd he
"always had been and always would
be subservient to the wishes of the
people and of the Mexican federal
government," and that if both "his
people and his government" desired
him to retain the governorship, he
would be glad to.
Senor Almada attended the demon
stration. The crowd later attended
the weekly bull fight.
Senor Almada's telegram to Gen
eral Obregon said:
"Governor Cantu had agreed with
me to transfer the governorship
