The outstanding concrete results of

out thr conference slogan "Drive spe

ernment and restore it to the people,"

Adopted a reHolutlon offered by Mrs.
Abby Scott liuker, suffrage lender,
culling upon President Harding to de
clare at onco a general amnesty for
political prisoners now held in the

No attempt was made to formulate
a definite, legislative program. This
task was delegated to a committee
on resolutions which will present a
detailed reported of the conference
uiiiis at a later date.
The conference unanimously adopt
ed a report presented by the resolu
tions committee which stated that
"your commit tee," realizing the im
possibility of reporting in a slngio day
a leg'tdntive and economic program,
suggests that the chair appoint a
nonpartisan eommltte for the pur
pose of bringing about the co-opera-lion

country to aid in the advance of

Senator Jjo. Follette. Wisconsin,
who, as head of the people's legisla

presided over today's session. The
proceedings were marked by harmony
and a concert of purpose which up
set predictions that friction would
promptly develop among the progres
sives in shaping their plans. At the
very outset of the conference the
delegates declared their purpose to
work for progressive measures with
out attempting to organize a third

Is Timed to
Announcement of Secretary Hoover That President
Will Run for Second Term Regarded as Proceed

action Against Reverses in Last Election,

tt aahliigtuo lorrmiouilmt The rnh Be.
Washington, Dec. 2. (Special Tele
gram.) President Harding's hat Is In
the presidential ring, according to the
interpretation placed here today upon
the Interview given st Palo Alto, Cal.,
by Herbert Hoover, secretary of com
merce. Kepubllcan leaders who have
had their llghlnlng rods In position
had their vision distorted when they
saw the Harding sombrero go hurtling
Into the arena.
When Mr. Hoover said the repuh
licun presidential candidate in 1924
"obviously will be Warren O. Hard
ing," It Is assumed tho commerce sec
retary spoke with the approval and
knowledge of the president. Cabinet
officers do not make statements like
this casually. The announcement Is
staged in California, whero Hiram
Johnson, according to last reports,
still has a considerable following and
Is timed to meet attacks on the ad
ministration growing out of the re
verses in the last election. They
come, too, when the president Is flirt
ing with the farm bloc and when
Senator La Follette Is running up the
liberal banner at Washington where
ho is endeavoring to make the com
bination between the agrarian and or
ganized labor groups hold together as
a national proposition.
Hoover Supplies Hint.
Up to this timo, the president has
not lisped concerning his Intentions
in 3 92-, nor have his closa advisers
let fall a hint as to his plans. Hut
with 20 months of the administration
gone into history, and with new sit
uations developing daily, the presi
dent's close friends have believed it
time some Intimation be given tho
Gang Rounded Up

New York, Pec. I. Secret service
agents today arrested John PopovJch
of Los Angeles, who, they said, car
ried a bag containing counterfeit
English bank notes calling for 100,
OOd. Ho was lield for arraignment
Arrested In I.os Angeles after banks
had exchanged 6,000 of counterfeit
notes, Popovich was released because
of lack of evidence.
Later when the counterfeiting plant
was found an order for Popovlch's
rearrest was issued.
Gang Broken I p.
Washington. Dec. 2. Officials of
the United States secret service de
clared they had succeeded in round
ing up another important gang of
counterfeiters in the arrest in New
York of John Popovich of Los
Tho arrest is the third in the case
and tho three men In custody are
said by secret service agents to have
been involved in the production of
counterfeit bank notes of Kngland.
The other men arrested in connection
with the case are Oscar A. Simon of
Ixis Angeles and Ivan davadonovlc.
Cliiet Muran of the secret service
declared that when Popovich was ar
rested, secret service agents found in
his possession and in his hotel room,
Hunk of England notes totaling more
Hum 430.noi.i. They had previously

public relative to what Wuiren !.
Harding hits In mind. Mr. Hcover has
supplied the necessary hint. It Is
broad enough so that thusu who
want to run may rend.
Mr. Hoover's announcement is
taken to indicate tho appeal which
the president expects to make to the
public for a second term.
"Moreover, by that time (102-1)," Mr.
Hoover says, "the public will be
highly appreciative of the sanity end
progressive character of the policies
that will have brought this country
through the reconstruction period."
Had Troubled Moments.
The president. It Is understood, has
hud many troubled moments during
tiio gruelling period of his first two
years of office. It Is no wonder ho
has thought t times it would be
well to let someone else carry the
ball for the next half.
But apparently, he has made, up
his mind to go through without an
other contest and tnke whatever the
country has to give him. His close
friends point out that it is natural
there should bo a reaction against the
administration now, as tho president
has been acting in the eupaclty of a
surgeon, performing it painful but
necessary operation. No one, they
say, feels an abiding affection for tho
man wielding the knife, but once tho
operation is over and the patient re
covers, gratitude supplants the petu
lance of the moment.
At any rate, notice has been served
on candidates ror tne presiuentiai
Job, that Warren G. Harding does not
propose to vacate the White House
and if any ono wants to take pos
session of the residence in 1924, they
will havo to evict him.

on Dyer Bill
Kepublicaii senator in (..uu
cus Vote to Abandon Anti
Lynching Measure Afler
Legislation Now Dead
Washington, Pec. 2, (Uy A. P.)
Success crowned the filibuster of sen
ato democrats against the Iyer antl
lynching bill today when republican
senators In party caucus voted to
abandon the tnensuro complete?.
The republican majority acted after
the democrats, by what Is generally
conceded to have been one of the most
efficiently conduct filibusters In tho
history of the senate, had prevented
tho transaction , of any business for
the fourth consecutive legislative day.
Tho ' obstructionist tactics of the
democrats, moreover, were threaten
ing more than a thousand presiden
tial nominations which, if uncon
firmed by, Monday noon, when the
special session ends, must be aguin
Action Left to ('uncus,
Tho republican caucus was preceded
by a conference attended by Senator
Lodge of Massachusetts, the repub
lican leader; Curtis of Kunsas, the re
publican whip, and Senator Short ridge
of California, In churge of the Dyer
bill. Senator Shortrldge, who had
been unmovable throughout the fili
buster, was understood to havo agreed
at this conference to allow the fate
of the bill to bn decided by a majority
The ciuestion of abandoning the
measure, which was passed by the
house last season, was debated It) tha
caucus for two hours, it is undr
stood, a small minority holding out
for continuation of the fight. . The
final decision, however, was to direct
Senator Lodgo to inform the demo
cratic leaders that the bill would be
pushed no further either at tho spe
cial session or at the regular session
convening Monday. This means the
death off the legislation, which the
democrats havo attacked as "a force
bill" and as unconstitutional.
To Con (inn Nominations.
The. decision, republican leaders
said After tho caucus, will permit
confirmation of a large number of the
pending nominations at a session of
the senate convening at 10 Monday,
two hours In advance of tho meeting
of congress in regular session, Among
those nominations is that of Pierce
Rutler of Minnesota, to be associate
Justice of the supreme court.
Majority and minority leaders alike
were agreed tonight that the filibuster
thus brought to an end by the re
publican caucus decision will take a
place as one of the most notable In
senate history. It has differed from
previous filibusters in that it Involved
no long speeches, democrats having
utilized the usual routine action of
approving the Journal.
Take Advantage of Rules.
Under senate rules no business can
be transacted until the Journal or
minutes of tho previous session have
been approved and the democrats
took advantage of this rule, refusing
approval of amendments, demanding
quorum calls and requesting the
ayes and nays on every question
Leaders on both sides were agreed
that the filibuster had the additional
effect of directing attention to senate
rules' under which a minority by well
directed moves may block any legis
lation and which Senator Cummins,
Iowa, the president pro tempore, Fri
day described as belonging to "an
