democratic presidential candidate's
western trip, which closes tomorrow,
one month from election day, after
covering more than 10,000 miles in
2- states. The governor's speeches
already have passed the 200 mark.
Headed by the league of nations,
democratic doctrines were preached
by Governor Cox to ten Oklahoma au
diences which roared their approval,
t'heerinff crowds waving banners,
brass band parades and jammed audi

Sw Attnck Encountered.
A new form of attack was en
countered by the governor at Chand
ler, from which town a sheaf of tel
egrams signed by various names had
been sent him. He asked his audience
about the telegrams, mostly questions
on the league, and some were de
clared fictitious and others un
authorized. The affair. Governor Cox declared,
disclosed "tricks of politicians skull
duggery." "They won't fight on the level,"
he said, "but I'm going to continue
fighting on the level and I'm going
to give them a good licking."
A new charge regarding alleged
"scouts" of Chairman Hays of the
republican national committee, was
made by the governor at Sapulpa. He
charged that "thousands and thous
ands" of republican agents were pos
ing as democrats and telling persons
whom they met that they wanted no
more democratic rule.

"These scouts," the governor said,
"have been traveling everywhere. I
don't know how many men Will Hays
has employed. "You will find them

" 'Well,' the scout says. T have
been a democrat for 20 years, but no
more of it for me. I'm done.'
"There are thousands and thou
sands of that kind of scouts travel
ing all over the United States and
big business is paying the bill."
Referring to the telegrams sent
him from Chandler, the governor said
that one, asking a question on in
tricate international law, it devel
oped, purported to have been sent by
a colored laundress. "This," he said,
"Is one of the outgrowths of the Na
poleonic mind of Will Hays."
Governor Cox also predicted "start
ling events in the councils of the re
actionary group" within a short time.
Showdown Soon Forecast,
'I will make the prediction," he
said, "that certain groups are going
to ask certain gentlemen for a show

Governor Cox as a "reactionary" can

"This commandment," he said, "has

CHARGE OF TAFT IS DENIED
Democrat Says ex-President Made
Misstatement of Fact.
NEW YORK, Oct. 1. Denial of the
published charges of former President
W. H. Taft that Governor Cox "at
tacks the Associated Press for failing
to give to the public a fair account
of his speeches, the crowds and other
phases of his long tour." was made
bere today by George White, chair
man of the democratic national com
mittee. His statement follows:
"It seems to be in the atmosphere
of the republican party to make mis
statements. Some of them are delib
erate, some based on ignorance.
Charity Inclines me to the belief that
the latter was responsible for an as
sertion by Mr. Taft in an article pub
lished this morning that Governor
Cox 'attacks the Associated Press for
failing to give to the public a fair
account of his speeches, the crowds
and other phases of his long tour."
"Of course Governor Cox did no
euoh thing. He did accuse Chairman
Hays of the republican national com
mlttee of sending two scouts along
his route to urge the republican new s
' papers inlhe west, in many places
successfully, to suppress the news lo
cally. The Albuquerque (V. M.)
Journal, a republican newspaper, ad
mitted the truth of this in a front
page boxed article.
"Not one of us connected with the
democratic campaign has the slightest
complaint of the Associated Press or
ny reputable press association. They
have given us a perfectly fair deal.
"They supply the news to news
papers, hut they cannot compel them
to print It. Mr. Taft has simply
caught the contagfon of misstatement,
that is all."

on October 12. 1904, he was elected

W. Murray Crane, ex-United State
arnator, nho died suddenly.
At the last republican national con
vention in Chicago he was one of the
group that consolidated the delegates
when they appeared hopelessly dead
locked and brought about the nom
ination of Senator Harding. Mr.
Crane was a strong advocate of a
league of nations.
He was always interested in scien
tific agriculture. By the application
of business methods he developed 2700
acres of neglected land in Dalton into
a successful farm. Mr. Crane made
many important gifts to his home
town and gave largely to charitable
objects. He was credited with hav
ing saved many individuals and small
companies in the Berkshires from
bankruptcy when they were overcome
by business difficulties. Williams
college bestowed upon him the honor
ary degree of master of arts In 1897
and in 1903 Harvard made him a doc
tor of laws.
Mr. Crane married Mary, the daugh
ter of Robert Benner of Astoria, L. I.,
in 18S0. Bereft by the death of his
young wife four years later, he re
mained a widower until 1906, when he
married Josephine Porter, a daughter
of William J. Boardman of Washington.

son, K. J. Stack, local union No. 1257
of the Retail Clerks' International
Protective association. John Doe Pres
ton, J. IX Myall and L. C. Novak, the
supreme court modified the' decree
of Judge John McCourt of the Mult
nomah county circuit court and per
mits the defendants during business
hours to maintain one picket only on
the outer edge of the sidewalk at
each public entrance to plaintiff's
stores, with authority to each picket
to wear a banner or scarf inscribed
with the words: "Unfair to organ
ized labor, local union No. 1257." The
court also sets put that the picket
so stationed in front of these stores
must talk in the ordinary tone of
voice, using the expressions, "This
place is unfair to organized labor.
Please do not pafronize it. Friends of
union labor and all working men will
not patronize this place."
Intimidation 1m Denied.
This opinion also was written by
Justice Johns, with Chief-Justice Mc
Bride and Justices Bean, Benson and
Harris concurring. Justice Burnett
dissented, while Justice Bennett wrote
a special concurring opinion.
In this case, according to the opin
ion, the defendants admitted picket
ing and that the pickets publicly ad
vised "all friends of decent working
conditions, hours and wages and of
organized labor to refuse to patronize
the plaintiff's stores because they
were unfair to organized labor and to
refuse such patronage until the plain
tiff and his stores had been placed on
the fair list. They denied any Intimi
dation, unlawful acts or conspiracy
and alleged that there was a trade
dispute and that the picketing was
done in a peaceful and lawful manner.
As a further defense, it was alleged
that about March 1. 1919, the plaintiff
entered into a written contract with
the defendant local union No. 1267 for
a period of 12 weeks, by which he
agreed to conform to the standard
union contract; that on November 15,
1919. he violated this contract and
that he worked his employes over
time. Also that on January 13, 1920.
hewholly repudiated his contract and
declared that he would not recognize
or deal with the union or its members,
that he scHight to destroy union or
ganization and that on account of this
pickets were employed.
Plaintiff Further Accused.
It further was charged that the
plaintiff used all means In his power
to injure labor organizations gen
erally and prevent others from unit
ing with them, and that he offered to
pay all expenses of picketing Meier
& Frank's store in Portland for one
week, if said union would do so.
The important t.uestion in this case
involved the constitutionality of
chapter 346, laws of 1919, which the
court held to be valid and operative.
"Although we agree with the trial
court in its findings as to what the
pickets said," read Justice John's
opinion, "yet as we construe the
record they spoke in an ordinary tone
of voice and not In a loud or unusual
The court found that there was a
dispute between the employer and em
ployes growing out of an employment,
within the terms and provisions of
chapter 346, laws of 1919. It was held
by the court that under the facts the
strike was justified, as for a lawful
purpose, and that the picketing was
done in a lawful manner. Also that
the strike was ordered because the
plaintiff breached his contract' and to
further and protect the interests of
the union and, its members.

DUBLIN. Oct 1. (By the Associ

that the government itself was re
sponsible for reprisals in Ireland and
that certain Sinn Fein leaders were
marked for assassination were made
today by Arthur Griffith. founderof
the Sinn Fein organization, who said
he was first on the list.
Mr. Griffith, to support his state
ments, exhibited to the group of
American, English and continental
newspapers, to whom he made a long
statement preferring the charges, al
leged official documents secured by
Sinn Fein agents. Among these
papers was an official permit alleged
to have been signed by General Sir
Nevil MacReady, military commander
of Ireland. It was made out to
a man named Hardy, who has had
a life-long career of forgery and im
prisonment, and who is alleged to
have been released prematurely from
prison on a ticket of leave signed by
Ian Macpherson, as cbief secretary
for Ireland, permitting him to move
about freely in Ireland unhampered
by police surveillance in the role, as
Mr. Griffith asserted, of government
Although accustomed to daily sen

It Is pointed out that, if the docu
ments are authentic, Mr. Griffith is
liable to arrest under the defense of
the realm act and under the new res
toration of order act, for having
them in his possession. Similarly, it
is said that every newspaper corre
spondent transmitting such an order
or the substance of it and editors of
British newspapers reproducing it are
likewise subject to arrest.

Greenwood, chief secretary for Ire
land, in a speech on the occasion of a

There were rumors that some of
the condenseries in the northwest

happens, the larger supply of butter
