Robert Cecil to have been brought
definitely nearer today, by the ac
tion of a subcommittee of the tem

Erin in Civil War
Asserts, in Message to Amer

Irish Parties Torn Up
"Danger Has Come.'
London, July 6. (By A. P.)
Eamon De Valcra, the republican
leader, in a mcssags) addressed to
the people of the United States, de
clares the pact between the Irish
parties has been torn up, that civil
war has broken out, that the Dail
Eirrean is not allowed to meet and
that the provisional government has
assumed a military dictatorship sup
ported by the British big guns.
"The danger to Ireland which I
feared most and warned our people
of civil war has come to us," says
Mr. De Valera in message. "Soldiers
of the army of the republic have
been attacked by forces of the pro
visional government at the instigation
of English politicians who wanted an
immediate set off to the shooting of
Sir Henry Wilson in order to avert
from themselves political conse
quences which they feared."
Call to Arms Issued.
Dublin, July 6. (By A. P.) A
call to arms was issued today by the
free state government in a proclama

it was confident of the ability of the
army single handed to meet and de
feat any attack made upon it."
Must Have Permits to Leave.
Belfast, Juiy 6. (By A. P.)
Railway communication between
Dublin and Belfast was re-established
today. Passengers from the
north were allowed to enter Dublin
without permits, but military passes
must be obtained if the persons thus
admitted desire to leave Dublin again.
Casualties in yesterday's fighting,
so far as the records of the city
show, were one killed and 16
For the eight days of the fighting
in Dublin the casualties are given
as 61 killed, 259 wounded, not in
cluding four snipers shot dead in
Marlborough street and the wound
ed taken prisoner from the repub
licans' Sackville street stronghold.
The material loss to the citizens
of Dublin is very heavy. The value
of the buildings destroved is esti
mated at between 3,000,000 and
4.000,000, while the destruction also
means the loss of very large sums in
rentals and probably considerable un
employment. Tourists Find Bodies of

or a sleek coat.
It's getting to be that way in poli
tics. The average voter is not es
pecially interested in what the various
kinds are promising to do if elected.
Past performances are going to count
more than pledges both in the state
primaries ot July 18 and in the fall
Among the candidates who accept
this vote is Charles H. Randall, one
of the three men seeking the repub
lication nomination for governor.
Mr. Randall spent the Fourth of
July among his own people at Ran
dolph, a small town in Cedar county.
It was the first time he had touched
home in more than two weeks. For,
be it known, he is carrying on a
most aggressive fight for the nom

Nevertheless his friends are hard

district will return a heavy majority
for him. The south and west may
go to others, but these men who
waved from the roads or the fields
or shook hands in the country towjis
are pretty solid.
Seldom Makes Speech.
Mr... Randall seldom makes a
speech. Slowing up as he reaches a
town, he drives up the main street
and hunts up some old friends. To
gether they go up and down the row
of business houses, shaking hands
with every one, merchants, bankers,
farmers and women shoppers. He

Standing on Record.
Since Mr. Randall is not bragging
of what he will do in office and is
depending on his past record it is
time to examine that. To a man his
neighbors declares that he is long
headed, unassuming and a man of his
word. He has always stood for pro
hibition. He voted for woman suf
frage. He voted, likewise, for the
code bill, and believes that the gov
ernor should be given full respon
sibility and held to it.
He is president of the Nebraska
Bankers' association. As a member
of the War Finance corporation he
accomplished much toward relieving
the farmers and business men of the
state from disasterous deflation.
On certain vital issues Mr. Randall
does not hesitate to express himself.
One of these is law enforcement.
"I shall strive to make it less easy
for criminals to evade the law," he
said to one of his traveling com
panions. 'T believe it is also within
the scope of the executive to .irevent
the release of hardened criminals. My
idea on the taxation problem is to
cut down the overhead and reduce
expenses of government wherever it
is possible to do so without hamper

At Norfolk Mr. Randall yesterday
found himself in the midst of many
other candidates. Congressman Jef

folk, who is running for the' republi
can nomination for congress from
the Third district, was also at work.
Mr. Havens is likewise refusing to
commit himself to any cut and dried
program and is endeavoring to cor
ral the opposition to Congressman
Evans. He is not in accord with
some of the things that the Harding
administration has done or left un
done. He has an opponent in

that he is in no danger of losing re

Norfolk yesterday was J. O. Shroyer,

for the democratic nomination to the
United States senate. Mr. Shroyer
is endeavoring to unite the farmers
and labor under his banner and has
developed more strength than he is
usually credited with. This is be

a delegation from the eight southern
provinces to negotiate with the
Pekin government for the reunion of
China unless he first is restored to
the southern presidency from which
Chen drove him.
Gen. Chen's proposal to Sun, which
followed recent .efforts to bring the
two southern leaders together again,
was iu the form of a telegram from
Chen's headquarters at Waichow,
about SO miles from Canton.
The message was addressed to W.

that Sun proceed to Shanghai and
there call a conference of the eight
southern and central provinces of
China for the purpose of selecting a

would select the former southern
