Thomas B. Miller to Bo in Charge
of Kastcrn and J. W. Good
of Western Divisions.
CHICAGO. July 10. Republican na
tional headquarters today announced
that Senator Harry S. Now of In
diana will head the republican cam
paign speakers' bureau.
National Committee Chairman Hays
pave out the following outlines of the
Senator New. who directed the
Roosevelt campaign of 1904 from
western headquarters, will have as
sociated with him In charge of the
eastern division, with headquarters in
New York. Thomas B. Miller of
Delaware, eastern manager for Gen
eral Wood in the pre-con vention cam
paign. J. W. Wood of Iowa, chair
man of the appropriations committee
of the house, will be in charge of
the western division headquarters at
Chicago. All these men will give all
tf their time to the work, with a full
corps of assistants.
The speaking campaigns of the
senatorial and congressional commit
tees have been consolidated with the
national committee's work and there
will be but one speakers' bureau.
Apart from these national activities,
Senator New will keep in close touch
with the campaign in his own state.
He is taking up this national work,
not only because of his deep -interest,
but at the earnest personal
request of Senator Harding and
ence. He spoke Impressively and
lengthily under conditions of miners'
lives in Germany. He said:
"Increasing coal digging In Ger
many cannot be done over a green
cloth. It depends upon food, . upon
practical arrangements of miners'
hours and upon stimulating their in
terest in their work and also forming
within them the purpose to do their
best. The miners in Germany can do
better work and increase their pro
duction by working six hours a day
rather than the longer hours.
Willingness Is ExpreMei,
"The question of coal production
is not for Germany alone. It is an
international question and the miners,
in a perfectly proper way, feel solid
arity upon that question. The miners
of England feel, I am sure, just as
the miners of Germany do. I will
not appeal to the miners of England
but I am sure that they could be ap
pealed ; to successfully by the Ger
Premier Lloyd George laughed.
"The miners of Germany,". Herr
Hue continued; "are perfectly willing
to do their part in increasing coal
production and In fulfilling the obli
gations of the state. We only want
to be treated fairly and we do not
believe that for the allies simply to
give Us an order without any assur
ances concerning' food or other neces
sities is the right way in which to
treat the great body of miners who
must do thework.
"The German workers agree with
their British, French and American
conferees that the six-hour day gives
the best results. The real question
is one of increased output.
"The uee of force or punitive
measures will have exactly the op
posite effect to what is intended.'!
Borah Comments on Platform.
FOISE, Idaho. July 10. In his first
public speech at Idaho's capital city
since his return from the east. Sen

the United States if a member of the
league of nations, from making any
decision for itself on questions of the
rights 'of small nations or self de

COLORADO CAMPAIGN ON
Senator Sherman Opens With.- Chal
lenge to Democrats.
DENVER, Colo., July 10. Lawrence
T. Sherman, United States senator
from Illinois, opened the presidential
campaign here at a ratification meet
ing for Harding and Coolidge tonight.
Senator Sherman challenged demo
cratic leaders to explain why 37 pow
ers in the league of nations do not
stop the outrages in Armenia if the
league is a cure for war.
That is why I wish to speak as a
matter of right and not one of privi
lege. I cannot dispute M. Miller
and's figures concerning France, but
his figures regarding Germany are
quite wrong. Germany has not pro
duced 79 per cent of her pre-war coal
and it is not true that 85 per cent of
the German iron industries are at
Supply to France Discussed.
"I recognize that the French coal
situation is serious and, although .he
Versailles treaty was forced upon
Germany, every German employer and
workman must strive to help JfVance,
as many of her mines have been de
stroye.d, although this destruction was
' not wanton, but one of military neces
sity. "Germany is reproached for not liv
ing up to her coal obligations under
the treaty. As a matter of fact, before
the treaty was signed Germany had
voluntarily supplied France with con
siderable quantities of coal. The
Germans now recognize that this act
was dictated by an unwarranted senti
"The reparations commission is now
demanding 29,000,000 tons per annum.
It is impossible to comply. The Ruhr
output in May -was 220.000 tons a
day. It now has reached 285.000 tons,
this on the basis of 300 working days
"The Ruhr proprietors have been
trying to Increase the output by draw
ing more workmen Into the Ruhr. The
workers, however, demand a six-hour
day, but in order to provide the French
with supplies the men have agreed
to work eight hours and 10 minutes,
subject to being paid double rates for
the extra two hours.
Extra Work Is Proposed.
"The employers are endeavoring to
arrange that the men should work an j
extra hour and a half, but overtime
ennnot be forced upon the workmen.
The 1.000,000 tons now being supplied
are only made possible by overtime.
The state of the workingmen's health
makes additional effort on their part
"I recognize that Germany may fear
to precipitate occupation of the Ruhr,
which would result were the allied
demands not met. I think that if j
black troops as the instrument of.
public authority are used, the feeling
of every white man will recoil and the I
allies will get no coal. Immigration !
of workmen into the Ruhr would suf-'
fer and the building of dwellings to !
house them would stop for want of
"If the allies insist upon their de
mands the European coal situation,
which otherwise might be solved
within three years, will become per
manently disorganized and Europe
'will be permanently exhausted.

Monday the governor will have his
first meeting with Franklin D. Roose
velt, the vice-presidential nominee, at
the executive office in Columbus.
Governor Cox has issued no state
ment of his position on the league of
nations since his nomination and it
was said he probably would make
none prior to his speech of acceptance.
It was stated by those in close touch
with him. however, that he is in per
fect accord with the democratic plat

The governor stated today that he
considered the democratic platform a
promissory note to the people and
that it was up to him to redeem it.
At the proposed conference between
the president and the presidential
candidate at Washington it ts ex
pected the league of nations will be
one of the subjects discussed.
The governor played golf this after
noon at the Dayton Country club.
Paired with Elsworth H. Augustus of
Cleveland, a strapping lad with a
mighty stroke, the precedential nomi
nee's record was saved. He often
went into the rough and it generally

Apparently a little bit chagrined at
his showing, he commented to his
friends that "between national con

Governor Invited to Ontario.
Governor Cox today received an in
vitation from W. J. Southam, Hamil
ton, Ontario, to attend a luncheon
there August 9 given by Southam in
honor of the imperial press delegates,
including Lords Burnham and North
cliffe and other leading Journalists of
England and Canada. The invitation
suggested that Governor Cox speak'
on international relations or on the
league of nations. The governor has
not indicated whether he will accept

extraction. He stated that his
parents were of English and Scotch
The governor's Dayton friends are
pleased with the prospects of him
carrying the campaign immediately
into the western states and they be
lieve such a plan will be approved by
the national committee.
