RENOMINATION NOW LIKELY Desperate Fight With Live Opponent Follows. ALL DEMOCRACY ROUSED We Would Rather Beat Lodge Than All Other Republicans, Says One Enenly Leader. BY ARTHUR SEARS HEXNIXG. (By Chicago Tribune Leased "Wire.) BOSTOX, Mass., Aus. 20. Henry Cabot Lodge, United States senator, at the age of 72, rounding out. 36 years of continuous service in con gress, is going to crown his career with either the greatest triumph or the first defeat he has experienced. Dean of the senate, in -which he is serving his 30-th year, Mr. Lodge is a candidate for a sixth term. He is just now approaching the renomi nation hurdle in the republican pri marv on September 12. If he wins the primary, as now seems probable, he is not unlikely to find, himself in for a desperate fight with the demo cratic nominee in the Xovember election. His rival, Joseph Walker, is an ex-Bull Mooser. The hottest, the most spectacular political battle in the country this year Is getting under way in Massa chusetts. All because of the candi dacy of Lodge for re-election and of the extensive and imposing array of his foes from near and far who have sworn, vengeance upon him and are mustering all their resources to beat him. Rich Vengeance Sought. It is a. dizzy pinnacle from -which his enemies are endeavoring to burl him. They hardly could have picked one who had farther to fall and certain it is that to defeat a president would not afford them half the satisfaction of dethroning Lodge. "We would rather beat Lodge than all the rest of the republican candidates in the whole country," recently remarked one of the big men in the Wilson administration. Undeterred by the disastrous ex perience of Mr. Wilson in endeavor ing to beat Jim Reed in his own party, the democratic .national or ganization is reputed to be planning to concentrate on the effort to de feat Lodge, if the republicans renominate hii. Former Governor Cox of Ohio, democratic nominee for president in 1920, who is now in Europe, getting more intimately acquainted with the league of na tions, is expected home in time to lead the revenge movement. " Much Discontent oted. If you had listened as I did today to a group of republican leaders in tbis state sizing up public dissatis faction with the republican admin istration, the republican congress and the republican party, you would think the defeat of Lodge in the primary a foregone conclusion. The workingmen and farmers, it was said, are discontented here as al, t most everywhere else; there have been numerous strikes in the indus trial cities, the most serious in the Lawrence textile mills; the manu facturers and business men are still waiting for a protective tariff (o restore the promised prosperity and, on top of all. the conservative Xew Englanders are denouncing the administration for failure to pursue a more vigorous policy in the coal and rail strikes. Some blame the president while others say they have been disillu sioned concerning that "strong cabi net" Mr. Harding promised in his acceptance speech. Members of the cabinet have been kept busy ex plaining why the president was not swinging the big stick. I was told of letters Secretary of War Weeks is. said to have written stating the administration feared that vigorous action in the coal and rail strikes would precipitate civil war. Secre tary of Commerce Hoover is quoted by Xew England railway executives as warning them to settle the con troversy to avoid civil war. Keeble Policy ProteKted. Weeks, Lodge and other New Englanden- in Washington have been deluged with irate remonstrances from this section gainst a feeble , str'ke policy. They have been told that if we are o close to civil war as is asserted, it can only be postponed at best, and ' it would be better to have it now. It Is interesting to note that Lodge was active in urging the president to address congress and announce a f rra policy. ' On account of the close identifica tion of Lodge with the administra tion and with republican policies . generally the senator's chances for renomination are not being im proved by this dissatisfaction In his own party, extending all the way from plutocrat to proletariat. But the republicans say Lodge. is going to be renominated and re-elected, in spit of the unpopularity of the re- (Concluded uu Page 3, Column S.) ' "VI .. 1 ..

The long, lean finger of John D. Rockefeller, pressing on that most sensitive nerve the nocketbook today is said to have called a halt tempo rarily, at least on plans for fur ther international marriages in the Harold F. McCormick family. Although he'' says little, John T. is accustomed to being obeyed. He has not been able , to stop the mar riage of his ex-son-in-law, now basking In the roseate light of ro mance with Ganna Walska, nor has he been able to put an end to the preRaratlons for the marriage of his' grand-daughter, Mathilde, to Max Oser, the Swiss ridingmaster.

But Mrs. Edith Rockefeller Mc Cormick, daughter of the oil king, hesitates on the brink of her ro mance with Krenn, the youthful Austrian architect, who returned to this country with her some. months ago.

The cars were filled with valuable express shipments, and the train carried a crew of eight men but no passengers. Suddenly on a straight stretch of track about a mile east of Gary the Engine leaped from the track, plowed over the ties for a hundred feet and then turned a complete somersault, ending in a mass of steaming wreckage at one side of the right-of-way.

REPRESENTATIVE MEETS WORK ON THE HOME GROUNDS. Paris Woman Appears on Beach With Daring Gown of White Open-Work Lace. . BY HENRY WALES. (Chicago Tribune foreign News Service. Copyright, 192a, by the Chicago Trfbutae.) DEAUVILLE. Aug. ZO. Frenzied betting almost as heavy as in the baccarat room at the casino, oc curred this morning on the beach, when a thrilling life counterpart of Hans Christian Andersen's story about the emperor's new clothes was staged by a daring Paris manne quin. - Wagers were made .by startled spectators as to whether the man nequin wore anything under her white open work lace dress, which she exhibited strolling beside the breakers. Generally pink silk slips are worn under transparent and open work dresses, but something about the fleshlike tint revealed aroused sus pense today. Quite a following, in cluding the shah of Persia and his faithful, ever-present grand vizier, stalled along behind the mannequin, trying to fathom the mystery. The mannequin wore white doeskin slip pers and was stockingless. That much was conceded by everyone. A divergence 'of opinion arose as to whether the gleaming pink" seen through the open work fleur de lys design lace gown was cuticle or an undergarment. - "I'll bet she's wearing a slip un derneath," said a prominent New York society woman who won 100, 000 francs in the night session at the Chemin de Io for tables. "She would not dare appear without one." "I'll bet .against that," said French count whose race horses had a winning streak during the present meeting. "Of course I'm wearing a slip underneath," replied the man nequin when a daring Cuban' asked the question point-blank. "But it such flimsy sheer material that it's transparent." Everybody had a drink with the king of Spain this morning when Alfonso treated a crowd of 300 in eluding many Americans at Potin lere.

"It was a wonderful trip, not only from the standpoint of the fair, but from that of development of the state' as a whole." Such was the statement of George L. Baker, mayor of Portland, as he arrived at 7 o'clock . last night at the head of the exposition caravan, which had completed a circuit of al most 1400 miles through central and western Oregon as herald of the 1925 exposition. It had taken the message of the exposition into towns of eastern Oregon, parts of central Oregon, southern Oregon and the Willamette valley. The final day's run started from Eugene, and was punctuated with stops and outdoor meetings at Monroe, Corvallls, Albany and Sa lem. The caravan of automobiles, which had left the city on August 12 on its unusual mission, had everywhere en countered a hearty welcome, said those in the party, and this was no less true here at home, as the bronzed and dust-sprinkled travel ers pulled into Portland and. gath ered on Sixth street between Mor rison and Alder, where they later dispersed.

Superlative terms and adjectives were on everyone's lips. True, there had been breakdowns, minor accidents, disappointments here and there, but on 'the whole the trip had been carried to a success ful conclusion, certain to bear ben eficial fruits, not only for Portland but for a big portion of the state as well. ' Impromptu Programme, Held. . As the caravan ists debarked they moved in concerted action to the intersection of Sixth and Morrison streets, where an impromptu pro gramme marked the disbanding of the party. Mayor Baker, who first evolved the caravan idea and had piloted it from first to last, perched himself on the running board of a convenient car and called the gang" together. The crowd that gathered around the crusaders com pletely blocked traffic while the parting, cere-monies continued.. Briefly but with undiminished en thusiasm. Mayor Baker thanked his fellow carivanists for their kinciiy good spirit and co-operation in making the tour a success. He spoke on behalf of the exposition manag ing- committee; of which be is a member. "Oregon 1935 Sons; Sung." 1 We have put our ideas over so far as the state is concerned," he said. "It is now up to tHe rest of you to follow up the work we ve done. Those of us who took this trip are going to organize a cara van club and it will accomplish re sults, I assure you." The returned boosters then lustily sang the "Oregon 1925" song which had been- their greeting to the scores of communities visited in course of the tour. The "gang" then did the mayor the honor of singing his praise. "Old George Baker is better than he used to be, six or seven days ago," rang out the voices, after Walter Jenkins, song leader, had ex plained that "George" was "better than ever" because of his associa tion with the party merfibers on the long jaunt. Mr. Jenkins then sang the Oregon state song,, also made familfar to the citizens along the route, and disbandment followed amid cheers of the crowd for the caravan and of the caravanists for" those who welcomed them. Support Given to Fair. .'"The trip has been a wonderful thing for the state of Oregon," com mented the mayor to friends who surrounded him. "The people "are for the fair there is no doubt about that. But perhaps more important, we found a remarkable sentiment favoring active development of the state.

One Starts Feud by Erecting Gate Which Required 2 Men to Lift. Bible Quoted on Peace. UKIAH, CaL, Aug. 20. Isaac Cres pin and John Haynes, aged ranchers In a remote section of Mendocino county and enemies in a feud of years, "shot it out" with high-powered rifles yesterday. Both are dead. "Crespin was about 70 years old; Haynes about 60. Haynes, it was said, fired first and fatally wounded-Crc-spin only to be shot in turn and killed by Leo Batt, son-in-law of Crespin. The feud started years' ago over erection of a gate across a road the Crespins had to use to reach their property. v The day came yesterday when they met at Mountain View Bchool house. Both were armed, with rifles, it was reported to the sheriff's of fice here. Crespin was accompanied by his daughter, Mrs. Hazel Batt, and -her husband, Leo Batt. Immediately upon, meeting, it was said, the two men engaged in word argument. Then a ' rifle cracked. Batt said Haynes shot first. This bullet struck Crespin's watch, drove the timepiece through Crespin's clothing and into his flesh and then the bullet ranged upward. Crespin died late last night from the wound. Haynes was thrice wounded. He was' dead when residents reached the school house, Mrs. Batt is credited with trying to prevent Haynes from shooting her . father. She threw herself in front of him, but Haynes, it was said, maneuvered his high-power rifle around her waist and fired. For years at nearly every session of the, county grand jury either Crespin or Haynes would appear and attempt to obtain an indictment against the other for some alleged offense. At other times the office of the county board of supervisors would be the scene of exciting times when the two arrived to make com plaint against , one another regard ing alleged road usurpation. The be ginning of the feud dates back years to a time when Haynes erected a gate across the road the Crespins were forced to take to enter their property. The gate instead of being simple bars was made of huge tree limbs which required two meivto lift aside.
