HARMONY IRKS 0PE11G SESSION As Conventions 'Go,' Af fair Is Tame, LODGE IS SELECTED PERMANENT CHAIRMAN CHOICE TO GO TO CONVENTION TODAY FOR APPROVAL. PARTY PLATFORM PROBLEM BIG ONE JOHNSON WANTS BORAH 1'OR PERMANENT CHAIRMAN. LODGE SOUNDS KEYNOTE Call to Party to Oust "Wilson Dynasty" From Power Is Cheered. PLATFORM WORK IS BEGUN Adjournment of Two-Hour Meeting Sees Committee Deliberations Start- CHICAGO, June 8. The repub lican national convention demon strated at its opening two-hour ses sion today that if it lacked leadership it did not lack harmony for the pre liminaries at least. Most of the session was taken up with the keynote speech of Senator Lodge, temporary chairman. From the moment that National Chairman Hays stepped out on the speaker's platform and called the assemblage to order until adjourn-! mcnt time, the average looker-on might have imagined that it was all over but the shouting. Not a lung let loose with any wild scream for a favorite; not a voice was raised in protest to any set plan for the preliminaries, and all joined in shout ing approval of Senator Lodge's call to the party to rise up and sweep the "Wilson dynasty" out of power, '""fp Opening Is Tame. But as conventions go, it was tame. It seemed as if some of the factions felt that the ice was thin. Half an hour late in starting, the convention jumped quickly to its work. First came the national chair man, who received a roar of cheers from the delegates, and the Right Rev. Charles E. Woodcock of Louis ville, Ky., whose opening prayer wafted through sound amplifiers reached every part of 'the hall. , The crowd that had been rev erently silent during the prayer, shuffled its feet and kept up a con tinuous rattle of talk while the sec retary, in a droning tone, read the formal call for the meeting. A lit- . t tie earlier it had roared with laugh !. ter at the acrobatic antics of a song , leader as he followed Chairman Hays Nominations of ex-Senator Bever idge and Senator McCormick Are Defeated. CHICAGO. June 8. Senator Lodge, temporary chairman of the republi can national convention, was selected today by the committee on permanent organization as permanent chairman and his name will be presented to morrow to the convention for ap proval. There were three nominations for the place and Senator Lodge was named on the first ballot, over ex Senator Beveridge, Indiana, and Sena tor McCormick of Illinois. The vote was: Lodge 22, Beveridge 9. McCor mick 7. On 'motion of the Illinois member, the recommendation was made unanimous. The remainder of the temporary organization was recommended for permanent service without opposi lion. " Senator Lodjre was placed in noml nation by William Barnes of New York, Mr. Beveridge by Governor Goodrich of Indiana, and Senator Mo Cormick by Lieutenant - Governor Oglesby of Illinois. No speechmaking followed the nominations and the vote resulted as follows: Lodge Colorado, Connecticut, Kansas, Louisiana, Massachusetts, Michigan, Mississippi, Minnesota, Nevada, New Hampshire, New York, North Carolina, North Dakota, Ohio, Oregon, Rhode Island.

The. firemen found the gasoline in the course of their investigation to prevent hoarding of the petrol dur ing the present shortage. Th-.fire marshal said the gasoline was stored in a crude oil tank, and that the city probably would make no objection to its storage under proper conditions. No evidence has been found' regarding the time when the gasoline was purchased. - 1 the platform to lead the singing and cheers. Delegates Roar ApprovaL There was a roar of approval from the delegates when , Chairman Hays declared that the republican party had met in free and open convention "to accept from the people a man date for the government of the United States." A second outburst came a moment later when he shout ed "there will be no bolt in this convention." The appearance of Senator Lodge, who had been escorted to the stage from his place on the floor with the Massachusetts delegation, wa3 the signal for the first real demonstra tion of the day. Crowds in the gal leries stood, as did the delegates, cheering and waving flags. The cheering broke out afresh as he was introduced by Mr. Hays as "Senator Henry Cabot Lodge of the United States." Then for an hour and a half he held the close atten tion of the big auditorium and brought forth cheering by sharp thrusts at all the policies of the Wil son administration. Other Work Quickly Done- It did not take long after Senator Lodge finished speaking to wind up the other work. The usual announce ments were made and organization resolutions rushed. That was the end of the first day's work, and on motion of Governor " I Beeckman of Rhode Island the con i vention adjourned until 11 A. M, " t tomorrow. x ..

SUFFRAGE GETS SETBACK Louisiana Senate Blocks Motion by Close Vote. BATON ROUGE, La June 8. The resolution providing for ratification of the federal suffrage amendment was defeated in the senate of the general assembly of Louisiana to night. The vote was 22 to 19 on s motion to postpone indefinitely con sideration of the resolution. This action of the senate does not mean the definite defeat of suffrage in the Louisiana legislature, as a res olution exactly duplicating the one introduced in the senate is now pend ing in the house and if it passes will again come before the senate for final action.

Although the hearings of the full committee will continue through to morrow, it was said that the sub committee might begin its work early the morning in the hope of com pleting the platform by Thursday.

Among those heard tonight was Henry Lane Wilson, Indiana, former American ambassador to Mexico, who pleaded for a platform declaration recognizing "our direct responsi bility" for conditions in Mexico and pledging the party to "full protec tion" of American property in Mexi can territory. He said, however, he did not advocate action "which would lead to intervention or wa."

MONTAGUE. (Cooyrlxht by the Ball Syndicate. Inc. CHICAGO, June- 8. (Special.) As Dr. Nicholas Murray Butler would say, the battle is Joined. What Nicholas' would mean is the trouble is started. All hopes that this convention would finish like a love feast are fallen and cold and dead. Like all good high- class trouble, it was unpremeditated; it stood not on the order of its com ing, but came with a rush, and not men, but issues, started it. In the stilly night of Monday the old guard leaders sent young Ineo dore Roosevelt to see Senator Johnson. 'In the interests of harmony. Sen ator," said young Theodore plaintive ly, "whom do you want for permanent chairman?" "Borah," said Johnson. "But, Senator," protested young Theodore, "that would not be in tne Interest of harmony." "I know it," said Johnson. Young Theodore returned to his co horts a sadder and wiser assembly man. Harmony Bets Off. In the meantime other promoters of harmony had been to ask Senator Borah about the platform. "Senator," they asked pleasantly "Won't you stand for a compromise plank on the league of nations?" "No," said Borah. "Tour refusal is not in interest of harmony. senator." said the emis saries reproachfully. "I know it," said Borah. So all harmony bets are off. The irreconcilables are just as irrecon cilable as they ever were, which means that they are considerably more irYoconcilable than so many (Concluded on Pare 11. Column 2.) CHICAGO. June 8. The Wood forces, although the general trend of talk among old-line politicians is toward Lowden, are elated tonight. They won a victory In the principal business transacted. Instructed Wood delegates won the two most important committee chair manships Senator Watson of Indiana for resolutions and Edward D. Duf field of New Jersey for credentials. Frank H. Hitchcock was designated by the Wood delegates as their su preme strategist. Think of the pyschological effect of this victory," he said, when asked where and how he expected Wood to benefit from these steps in organiza tion. We controlled the committee against powerful opposition, almost solid anti Wood forces," Mr. Hitchcock added. 'So far as increasing our total num ber of delegates is concerned the se lection of Mr. Duffield over Charles H, Innes of Massachusetts, is of small moment. We will make no effort to overturn the work of the national committee on contests. To do so would prejudice the Wood cause and I have given our forces instructions not to do so. No rough stuff will come from us, but we are glad to be able to show that the majority of the committee on credentials and also of resolutions is not against Wood." Talk Drifts Toward Lowden. While these developments were tak ing place the drift of the talk, and it may be nothing more, was toward Lowden. It was kept going by the old-line party leaders, but whether it is suf ficiently potent to affect the dele gates opposed to Wood or Johnson they do not proless to know them- KEYNOTE SPEECH IS DISAPPOINTING McCAMANT CONTEST HEARING IS REFUSED Senator Lodge Fails to Rouse Enthusiasm.

The Wood in- ' structed delegates, unaccompa nied by any of the managers who have been Identified with the cam- i paign thus far, after a conference with the general late today, agreed on Frank H. Hitchcock as field mar shal for their forces, with Frank Knox of New Hampshire as floor leader for the present. Mr. Hitchcock is to be assisted by a board of strategy, including William C. .Procter, Senator . Moses, Norman Gould of New York and others. Major Knox will be assisted by Galen L. Tait of Maryland and William H. Boyd of Ohio. Senator Frellnghuysen of New Jersey also has been offered the place of floor leader. California and Kansas delegations today reported tacit agreements to defer elections of national committee men until after the nominations. Friends of Senator Johnson, in majority on the California delegation, were reported opposed to re-electing William H. Crocker as national com mitteemen. In the past Mr. Crocker has been prominent in the anti-John son wing of the party in California. It was reported that some of Sen ator Johnson's friends had urged sup planting of Mr. Crocker by a man friendly to William Randolph Hearst, whose newspapers are supporting the Johnson candidacy, but opposition was said to have caused abandonment of the move and the agreement to let the national committee election go over temporarily. An attempt was made late today to form a union of western state dele gations under the auspices of Sen ator Johnson's supporters. The first step, a meeting called just after the conventioned adjourned by former United States Senator Frank P. Flint of the California delegation, was at tended by delegates representing Utah, Washington, Nevada, Arizona and Oregon.

' Henry Lincoln Johnson, an Atlanta negro who led the fight of the Low den delegates before the republican national committee, today was elected national committeeman from Georgia by the state ' delegation.

Speaker Lacks Spirit and Does Not Compel Veneration Because Too Youn". BY MARK SULLIVAN. (Copyrisht by the New York Evening Post, Inc. Published by Arrangement.) CHICAGO. June 8. (Special.) The party leaders are dissatisfied with Senator Lodge's keynote speech. It had been decided that Mr.. Lodge was to be not only temporary chairman but permanent chairman as well, and that it was too late to make a change. - But it is no secret that after the- speech this morning the party management wanted to make change. They would have pre ferred some one who could put a little more spirit into the occasion. Senator Lodge is not old enough to be. venerable, and a little too old, or at least too tired from his long win ter in the Senate, to be able to in spire those emotions which are the purpose of the keynote speech. One feels compelled to admit that as a keynote speech Senator Lodges effort was a little inadequate in sub stance and disappointing in its re ception. A Keynote speech is sup posed to bring forth great bursts of applause. Handelappingr Not Kxrited. Today there was nothing, like that The most excited reception that any part or tne speech got was merely a slightly gusty ' handclapping. The first applause Ji'ame when Senator Lodge had completed Uis rather over- literary beginning and got down to pounding the- democrats. It came when he said that "Mr. Wilson and Ills dynasty, nis heirs and assigns, or anybody that is hi, anybody who with bent knees has served bis pur poses, must be driven from control trom all influence upon the govern ment of the United States." Kverybody, of course, recognized the allusion to Mr. McAdoo, and many, as good partisan republicans. applauded it, but many others fc that just that way of beginning the indictment of a party had an un pleasant touch of partisan meanness A stump speaker can talk that way. but the senior senator from Massa- chuetts delivering the keynote speech at a great national convention ought to have sorriething a little more cle vated in his armor for such an occa sion. WasnlKh Ma I Ire Kelt. Nearly all Senator Lodge's allu sions to the administration had this same trick of waspish malice. The jrncsi namDergcr was chosen na tional committeeman by the Utah caucus today. Other states elected as follo"v s: 1 Tennessee, John W. Overall; Maryland, William P. Jackson; Arkansas, H.

There was and is abundant mate rial for that. In Senator Lodge's as quiet as a lawn social. Under orders from Mayor Thomp son the police made things as com fortable for the pickets as possible. For four hours they stood bareheaded and silent in the sun holding banners. They will be on the job again tomor row and until the convention ad journs. "What do you think of Hughes for president?" was asked of John L. Lewis, president of the United Mine Workers. "Well, this convention might go a great deal further and do much worse," the mine workers' president replied. Labor is showing way of getting at it the audience felt & certain malevolence of per sonality which was repellent. On another occasion Senator Lodge referred to Mr. Wilson as "a demo crat free-trader of socialist proclivi ties." That kind of political contro versy makes an uncomfortable l.npres slon. As you listened, you felt it was just like throwing bricks or epithets. You felt that Senator Lodge was just calling the president hard names. Also, again and again, Senator Lodge's speech reflected the fact that CHICAGO, June 8, Late tonight the credentials committee of the repub lican national convention was still at ork hearing appeals from last week's decisions of the republican na tional committee. Practically the same ground was being gone over and the prospects were that the committee might sit until the small hours of the morning to complete its report and enable the convention to go ahead tomorrow with a permanent roll of the delegates. The committee refused to hear a pe tition filedby Thomas Mannix of Portland asking that Wallace McCam ant, delegate at large from Oregon, be unseated on the ground that he "ob tained his election by fraud." Mc Camant, the petition said, refused to be bound by the Oregon preferential primary, which was carried by Senator Johnson. Prior to his election as dele gate, it said he had promised to abide by the primary instructions. In the last Georgia contest, from the tenth district, the committee up held the national committee s action seating Dr. Robert C. Williams of Augusta, reported to favor Lowden. The contest of the Wood challenger. W. Lyons of Augusta, was di missed. A contest application from Louisi la was refused, leaving the "regu lar" delegation on the permanent roll undisturbed. The committee affirmed the action of the national committee by seating Representative Thomas D. Schall and L. M. Mithun from the tenth Minne sota district, uninstructed. The "regular" delegates, who were pledged to Wood, lost their appeal. The .'fourth Missouri district dele gates on the temporary roll, favor able to Wood, were seated when the contestants failed to appear. The delegates from "the second and fourth Oklahoma districts, placed on the temporary roll by the nationa committee, were ordered seated. The second district delegates are unin structed. while the two delegates from the fourth favor Lowden. The four Wood delegates from tho fifth Oklahoma district, seated hy the national committee, were" placed on the permanent roll. The four, includ ing two women, were the contestins delegates before the national commit tee. L. G. Disney of Oklahoma, mem ber of the credentials committee, op posed seating the Wood delegates. Hhe foul Mulvihill delegatcs-at-Iartre from Mississippi reported favor able to Governor Lowden were placed on the permanent roll and the appeal of the Howard faction from the na tional committee ruling dismissed. Of the 137 contests derided by the national committee. 101 were ap pealed. Henry Lincoln Johnson, the Atlanta negro chosen national committeeman today, and three other delegates-at-large reported favorable to Iowden, were placed on the permanent roll. The Wood forces gained one Georgia vote, however, when the committee unseated a Lowden district delegate. The committee's action left the Geor gia delegation standing 12 unpledged, but claimed for Lowden, and five in structed for Wood. , Edward D. Ouffield of New Jersey was elected chairman of the commit tee. 28 to 16. over C. H. Innes of Mas sachusetts. William F. Laub of Wash ington was chosen secretary.

A man, a politi cian of national fame, told me today that tomorrow he would tell me pre cisely what the programme is for the nomination of a president. I had been looking: for him ever since I came here. I knew he was in touch with many states, many leaders and many interests, and I had confidence that he was more nearly in the cen ter of events than any other of my acquaintances. But of what value is inside information tomorrow? I want to know today, since I have many misgivings about tomorrow. Anything may happen over night and upset the best calculations of the keenest engineers of the political machine. I avoid the use of the term "steam roller." It is not here. I have my doubts also about the ma chine. But to the popular mind no convention can exist without a ma chine, and no machine without en gineers, so I, adopt the phrase. Sproul Held Possibility. What I suspect that my old-guard acquaintance purposes to tell me to morrow is that neither Wood nor Lowden can be nominated and that Johnson must be beaten and that necessarily a dark horse must be found. I suspect also that he will, unless he changes his mind, give me the name of the ebon animal, and my guess is that it will be Sproul of Pennsylvania. I will report my dis coveries later. For the present it is sufficient to say that evidences are multiplying that the high-card of dark horse pro moters bears the name of the popu lar and impressive looking governor of Pennsylvania. I am confirmed in my "conjecture by an interview with another noted politician, who so far as I could see has teen making strenuous efforts for three or four days to ascertain the location, direc tion and capacity of the band wagon. I asked him in the name of all the people of the great north west, thirsting for authentic infor mation, to help me relieve their sus pense. Theory Is Advanced. "Let me know," he said sagely, "what you think about it and I will tell you whether you are right or wrong." I advanced a theory as to condi tions and probable results. It wa3 a poor thing, but mine own, as the poet says. I thought it could serve qc moll sanv nt.hr. It was in brief that the temper of the delegates was steadily being hardened into a determination to dis card the three leading candidates after a series of fruitless ballots, wherein a deadlock would result. It was probable that Wood would lead in the first ballot, and for several ballots, and be followed in close order by Lowden and Johnson. On the second ballot Wood wouM make material, not from Lowden, and not much, if any, from Johnson, but from states like New York, which would cast a complimentary ballot for Nicholas Murray Butler, and from Pennsylvania, which would drop Sproul with the deft intention of tak ing him up later.
