by scrapers of the road crews-working
on the Columbia river highway
two miles eas of Big "Eddy, and
about six miles from. The Dalles.

The discovery was" made as' the
scrapers plowed through what., is appar

the settlement was overwhelmed with
a volcanic disaster, but it appears that
Ihe skeletons are those of victims of a
fire, and the sand was probably blown
in to bury the community completely by
the" sand storms bo frequently occurring
in that vicinity.
Wore than a dozen skeletons have been
unearthed. These are so old that they
moulder to dust upon being touched.
Near the bodies were found ornaments
of pure copper. These were beaten out
with hammers, and in them one sees
" flecks of ore. There is no copper around

ELIHU ROOT AND
;:'. By David Lawrence
(Copyright, ,1920, by Tlie Journal)
Marion., Ohio, Nov. 5. President
elect Harding will revert to the
round rftbin, signed by the Repub
licans of the United States senate
in.' March, 1919, as, the basis of for
eign polScy in the new administra
tion. This 'plan, which has been
confidentially discussed during the
campaign, will be ; pui. . into effect
just as soon, after , Inauguration as
possible.! It has the merit of af
fording a beginning in the inevita
ble process of reconciliation between
the various factions In .the senate. "
No matter what the votes may have
been on the peace treaty and covenant
the round robin is the single document
that all the Republican senators, both ir-
reconcilabies and reservation! sts, have
signed.--' Senator Borah may have re
marked during the V campaign that ' .he
was against all associations or alliances
of any -kind, but his name was signed
to the round robin, the" text of which
puts him on record as favoring some
kind . of ' a league of nations. . -BOOT
NOT ITS FAYOB
Moreover, it may be a surprise to the
worlds outside of Marion, Ohio, but it is
an open secret here that Elihu Root will
not be secretary of state in the next ad
ministration. Also it may be disclosed
that Mr. j Root is not in particular high
favor iere and that he will not be the
minister ieixtraordlnary or high commis
sioner to deal -with Europe as so many
people have supposed. There is not the
intimacy ; between Senator Harding and
Mr. Root which has been so often sug
gested as the basis for a Harding-Root
team on ; foreign policy In the jiext Re
publican : administration. This may be
disappointing to a large number of peo
ple, but ! it is nevertheless true. It is
'known, for instance, that Mr. Root Bent
Senator Harding a cablegram from Lon
don, thei friendliness of . which to the
present League of Nations was not to
the liking of the . then Republican candi
date for the presidency.' '
Also there is a feeling her that Mr.
Root didn't play the game during .the
campaign,' and that the part he took in
the formation of the international court

Point Isabel, semi-tropical little coastal

R. B. jCreager's summer home, where
the president-elect . and Mrs. Harding

in readiness. The local "hotel. -where
some of ! Harding's personal friends who
will be j here with him, and a limited
number of newspapermen, will be quar
tered, is expected to do the biggest busi
ness in its history.
It is doubtful if a more distant and
exclusive retreat could have been picked
by the j president-elect. The town of
about 400, of which a large percentage
are Mexicans, - is on Laguna Madero,
eight miles north of the mouth of the
Rio Grande, and is connected with the
Rio Gramde and the mainland by a nar
row gauge railway.
Harding is not a stranger to Point Is

and thei man who seconded his nomina
tion at i the Chicago convention.

HARDING AT OUTS
Irreconcilable Group in Senate
Increased From 17 to 25; De
clared Enough to Block Any
League Plan and Dictate Terms
By Carl Smith
Washington, Nov. 5. - (WASH
INGTON BUREAU OF THE JOUR
NAL.) With every battle for the"
senate now settled in favor 'of Re
publican candidates by late returns,
it is apparent that the irreconcilable
group led by Johnson and Borah
has increased from 17 to at least 25,
with others who may adhere to
them. j j
With this additional strength Johnson
and. Borah will have powerful aid in
their campaign to defeat any kind of
a league. Nothing but a rallk and'water
league can get their support, and , if
Harding tries for a new association of
nations, he will need Democratic help to
put it through, which may or may not
be given, according to its nature.
TO PCBSCK SAME TACTICS
Johnson and Borah are expected to
pursue the same dragooning tactics with
which they have already succeeded so
well. First they scared Lodge and pre
vented ratification by ,threatening a
party split when an agreement was
about to be had. Next they; scared, the
convention at Chicago into accepting
the treaty plank which was adopted.
Then they scared Harding into making
his famous rejection speech at Den
Moines. Now they propose to hold Hard
ing to the bargain and- witn added
strength in the senate, they Will be able
to make things interesting should the
new president develop a backbone favor
ing a league.
EIGHT aiOEE ELECTED
There are 15 irreconcilable holdover
members of the senate, including three
Democrats, Reed, Shields and Walsh,
the latter of Massachusetts. ! Two Jrrec
oncilables, Brandegee and Moses, were
reelected, making 17. Eight new mem
bers are regarded as irreconcilable.
They are Shortridge of California, Nich
olson of Colorado, Watson of Georgia,
Nordick "of ' South Dakota, Harrela of
Oklahoma, Gooding of . Idaho, Cameron
of Arisona and Welle r of Maryland, all
Republicans excepting Watson. "
JOHJfSON IS CONFIDENT I -
Besides , these some new senators are
not positively classified and among hold
over members there are. several near, ir
reconcilabtes, including Wadsworth.
Freelinghuysen, Sutherland, Elkinis and
Dillingham. So Johnson and Borah have
a hopeful prospect of controlling one
third of the senate and preventing rati
fication of any project that does not suit
their purposes. They need only 33 to
accomplish this end, even with all the
pro-league . Democrats . voting against
them. It io quite 'probable that some of
the Democrats will not find a new plan
to their liking, so, there Is ample-Justification
for the confidence of Johnson and
Borah that they can defeat any kind of
a league. . . :t-.-r; . ;.

It came as the climax of his first
speech since the election, delivered to
his Marlon neighbors from the front
porch last night when they came by
thousands to congratulate him on his
election. ' '---.'-r' !-"--
The American people, by the unpar
alleled majority they gave the Repub
lican candidate, ordered the League of
Nations scrapped, according to the in
terpretation Senator Harding places on
the solemn referendum. He made it
clear today that this tnandsite will be
carried Out to the letter.
The Marionltes, in their parade, car. -ried
up to the front porch a stretcher
bearing the effigy of a corpse labeled
"League of Nations."
"You didn't want a surrender Of the
United States," Harding said. "You
wanted America to be free and un
mortgaged. That's why you didn't care
for the league which is now deceased."
Senator Harding thus took ths first
opportunity after his election to. clear
the air on the league, matter. ,
