"The Service Men.
We hold in imperishable remem
brance the valor and the patriotism
of the soldiers and sailors of Amer
ica who fought in the great war and
the obligations which a grateful na
tion justly should fulfill in apprecia
tion of the services rendered by its
defenders on sea and on land.
Republics are not ungrateful.
Throughout their history they have
shown their gratitude toward the na
tion's defenders. Liberal legislation
for the care of the disabled and in
firm and their dependents has ever
marked republican policy toward the
soldier and sailor of all the wars u
which our country has participated.
The present congress has appro
priated generously for the disabled
of the world war. The amounts al
ready applied and authorized for the
fiscal year 1920-1921 for this purpose
reached the stupendous sum of
$1,180,571,893. This legislation is
significant of the party's purpose in
generously caring for the maimed
and disabled men of ,the recent war.
We renew onr repeated declara
tion that' the civil service law shall
be thoroughly and honestly enforced
and extended wherever practicable.
The recent action of congress in en
acting a comprehensive civil service
retirement law and in working out a
wage policy that will guarantee equal
and just treatment to the army of
government workers and in central
izing the administration of new arid
progressive employment policy in
the hands of the civil service corn
mission is worthy of all praise.
We condemn the present adminis
tration for its destruction of the ef
ficiency of the postal service and the
telegraph and telephone service
when controlled by the government
and for its failure to properly com.
pensate employes ' whose' expert
knowledge is essential to the proper
conduct of the affairs of the postal
system. We commend the repub
lican congress for the enactment of
legislation increasing , the pay of
postal employes, who up to that
time, were the Doorest paid in the
We welcome women into full par
ticipation in the affairs of govern
ment and the activities of the repub
lican party. We earnestly hope that
republican legislatures in states
which have not yet acted upon the
suffrage Anendment will, ratify the
amendment to the end that all of
the Women of the nation of voting
ape may participate in the election
of 1920, which is so important to the
welfare of our country.
The supreme duty of the nation is
the conservation of human resources
through an enlightened measure of
social and industrial justice. Al
though the federal jurisdiction over
tect the welfare and interests of the
nation as a whole. We pledge the
republican party to the so'ution of
these problems through national and
state legislation in accordance with
the best progressive thought of the

Chicago, June 10. A white
haired woman with a motherly face
fanned herself slowly as she walked
toward the Michigan avenue en

seemed fatigued. She smiled when
a reporter asked ler: "How does
it look for Governor Lowden?"
"I .don't like to talkpyou know,
because he's my son-in-law."
She was Mrs. George M. Pull
man. "My," she. continued, "I do hope
though', they nominate him. He's
made' such attire, record as a war
governor. And' if the people only
know him like I d dear me."
"I am for Gen. Wood first, then
Governor Lowden,"' said Mrs. Mary
Roberts Rinehart, magazine writer
and 'novelist, who passed through
Chicago today. "Under np circum
stances would I be for Hiram
Johnson. ,, He is a destructionist,
with no qualities of the construc

Mrs. Marie Estelle De Beck of
the Chicago Society of Ohio
Women, announced today that
Harding is, the real dark horse, 'who
never has knocked a single candi
date. An engineer from Broken
Bow, Neb., came to headquarters
today and asked for Mrs. Harding.
His name is A. R. Humphrey. Ten
years ago, when Senator Harding
was on a chautauqua tour, this en
gineer invited them into his caboose
and took them from' Grand Island
to Broken Bow because' there were
no other trains and they were to
be late to a speaking engagement.
"I just want to see her again.
Don't suppose she remembers me."
"I should say ; I do," said Mrs.
Harding. "Tell him to comee back
again if he comes while I'm out.

Samuel Gompers made the rounds
of the presidential candidates' head
quarters today. He met Governor
Allen in the lobby of the Congress.
They smiled ";nd chatted amiably
for a few minutes.
A picturesque personality at the
convention was that of William H.
Swett.' He is 85 years old. He is
a cousin of the late Leonard Swett,
Abraham Lincoln's law partner. In
1860 he sat as a delegate and man

Convention headquarters of the
American Irish Independence
league were established today at
the Blackstone by John' E. Millhol
land. The league is headed by
Eammon De Valera, president of
the Irish "Republic." ,
Harry M. Daugherty, manager
for Senator Harding, said "I helped
to get suffrage for the women of
my state and I'm glad I did it."
With him was Judge V. W. Van
Fleet, Mr. "Harding's manager in
Indiana. He refused to comment
on the women and their vote, and
snapped fretfully when he was
asked. " t

Governor Allen's labor court plan
is the most forward-looking piece
cf legislation produced in Ameica
in yers, said J. N. Atkinson, state
accountant of Kansas. He believes
the governor is the logical choice
of. the convention for "president. In

humorous, more comical, since the
day at the state convention years
ago when he shed his coat and col

with which to swab his fevered

more successful than the time 10
