SPRINGFIELD," I1U July 27. Gov
ernor Small's attitude toward "un
conditional surrender" to Sangamon
county authorities awaiting to arrest
him on charge of embezzlement and
conspiracy to loot the state treasury
while he was state treasurer, had not
been made known to Sheriff Mester
tonight. No response came from Chi
cago to his message refusing to place
the governor under arrest in Cook
county, as proposed by Albert Fink,
counsel for the governor.
Sensing a plan, they said, to involve
them in habeas corpus proceedings in
Cook county, the sheriff and State's
Attorney Mortimer declined the over
tures of Mr. Fink, and are awaiting
the governor's return here.
Friends of Governor Small said
they believed he had not given up his
intention "peacefully to resist ar
rest," adding that he would probably
xhaust all privileges he could obtain
. from the. courts before surrendering.
A writ of habeas corpus, it was
pointed out, could not be obtained
until the governor is arrested, and
nothing but time would develop in
the case while he remained away
from the capital. For this reason
county authorities looked for the
governor's early return here.
Following one of today's confer
ence's the governor announced he was
ready for an immediate trial.
"I want an immediate trial," he
ttald. "I have no fear of the outcome
If I have an honest hearing. I know
I cannot get a fair trial in Sangamon

Newspapermen who watch Mr.
Fink's office, where, the attorney
said last night in a telegram to
Sheriff Mester of Sangamon county,

DIPHTHERIA VICTIM DIES
XORMAX AREXZ, 16, ATHLETE,
SCCCDIBS TO DISEASE.
. M. C. A. Lad's Xkeath Is First
From Epidemic Tliat Invades
Camp at Spirit Lake.
The first death as a result of the
diphtheria epidemic which broke out
at the Y. M. C. A. boys camp at Spirit
Lake, Wash., a- few weeks ago, oc
curred yesterday when Norman Arenz,
16-year-old son of Theodore and Ce
cilia Arenz, died at the family home,
633 East Twenty-fifth street North, as
a result of the disease. Thirteen other
patients from the camp are said to
be on the road to recovery.
Arenz was one of the first group to
be sent back from Spirit Lake when
the epidemic started. He was promi
nent in high school and club athletics
in Portland, having won the boys' ten
nis singles championship two years
ago at Rose City. Last month he
competed in a tournament for Jef
ferson high school, where he was a
student. He also represented the
Multnomah Amateur Athletic club as
a wrestler and took a prominent part
in the affairs of the intermediates of
the Winged "M" institution.
A definite cause of the epidemic has
not been ascertained. The summer
camp, accommodating 67 boys, re
ceived a clean bill of health by the
city health official who took charge
immediately after the camp was
quarantined. Two theories have been
advanced one that one of the boys
at the camp came from a Portland
family quarantined for diphtheria and
the other that a farmer living near
Spirit Lake delivered supplies to the
camp when members of his family
were suffering from the disease. A
culture taken from the farmer showed
a postive reaction.
Another possible theory which came
to light yesterday Is connected with
Miss Bessie Hoopes, a secretary In
the boys' department at the T. M. C.'A.
in Portland. 'At about the same time
the epidemic developed at the Spirit
lake camp Miss Hoopes was found to
be a carrier of the disease, but im
mune to infection. When her culture
was found to be positive she was sent
to the city isolation camp at Kelly
Butte. where she has since remained.
It was stated at Uie Y. M. C. A.
last night, that this was a precau
tionary measure. Some of the boys
at the camp passed through the office
of the boys' department and may
have gathered germs while in con
versation with Miss Hoopes. it was
suggested. The nurse at Kelly Butte
reported a gradual change for the
better in Mies Hoopes' cultures, which
are taken daily,, and it is ..expected
that she will be released within a

WASHINGTON, D. C, July 27.
(Special.) The greatest single cause
for President Harding's domination
of congress lies in the fact that con
gress, and especially the senate, failed
to develop any dominant leadership
Harding didn't want the responsi
bility of leadership of congress. Tem
peramentally and as a matter of pol
icy, it was the last thing he sought.
But the lack of any other leadership
in the senate compelled him to con
sider the legislative programme of
taxation and tariff, the interest of the
country generally and the interest of
the republican party. If he failed to
do anything; nothing would have been
When you consider why the senate
failed to develop any leadership of
its own you come close to Lodge of
Massachusetts. Officially, Lodge is
everything there is in the way of re
publican senate leadership. He is the
official republican floor leader, he is
the chairman of the republican steer
ing committee and he is the chairman
of the republican caucus.
Lodge Avoids Leading.
With all this official standing, if
Lodge had the aggressive tempera
ment that reaches out for leadership,
he most assuredly would- have secured
it in this session, and if he had se
cured' it, he might have carried the
senate back to its old prestige and
power and might almost have eclipsed
the executive in the public eye. But
Senator Lodge did not have the ag
gressiveness to seize the opening; he
dad not care for it; he was indiffer
ferent to the power. He preferred to
go his own way. Quite possibly he
was unwilling or unable to pay the
price of leadership in the shape of the
ruthlessness that usually goes with
successful leadership of the kind that
Aldrich had In the senate. It would
be incorrect to sav that Lodge lack!
all the qualities of leadership. Lodge
was the leader of the r?publicans in
the senate when they were in the
minority during the 18 months' fight
over the league of nations. That this
fight was successfully conducted,
from the point of view of the repub
lican opposition to the league, history
permits no doubt.
From one point of view, that lead
ership is Lodge's great monument and
is equal to anything of the kind in the
history of the senate. Of course, it
involved a good deal of compromise
on Lodge's part. It involved com
promises made one week which were
inconsistent with the compromises
maae tne preceding week. . It in
volved, on Lodge's part, complete
abdication of any pretense to per
sonal and- permanent conviction of his
own on the league. It was a leader
ship whose success lay merely in not
letting the republican party drift into
an irreconcilable split, which would
have left the democrats dominant for
many years to come. That kind of
leaaership Lodge accomplished.
Senator Seems Indifferent.
But the leadership of the opposi
tion is a very different one from the
affirmative leadership of a party
when it is in the majority and re
sponsible for putting through a pro
gramme. In this latter kind of lead
ership, which has been called for since
the beginning of the present session,
Lodge has acted with a kind of bored
indifference. The result has been no
The result of that, in turn, has been
that any senator or little group of
senators having a pet measure could
push it forward to a point where it
embarrassed the par,ty. When it
reached that point those who ought
to be the responsible leaders in the
senate went to the White House
wringing their hands and asked
Harding to take the responsibility.
This is what happened about the
bonus bill, and this is what happened
about the Norris bill for farmers' re
lief. As a result Harding is in the
saddle without effort on his part.
