Warren G. Harding today aban
doned his' vacation program and de
cided to remain in Washington un
til about the middle of July, to de
vote himself whole-heartedly to
campaign planning and party unifi
cation. The senator made this announce
ment: "On account of my household
arrangements and the difficulty of
taking away the workihg establish
ment, such as I have had to create
here, I have decided to abandon my
vacation trip. T shall remain here
until I go to Marion for the formal
notification of my nomination, and
that I believe will be about July 15."

giving considerable attention to the
' task of bringing the old Roosevelt
and progressive following into camp.
He has been meeting with gratifying
success and he expects to continue
J" his efforts in this direction next
week. . .

reconcilability" on the treaty issue,

rHpd with soecial interest
"There will be no danger under
the administration of these men
Harding and Coolidge -of Ameri
can independence or. honor being
compromised or bartered away,
said Senator Poindexter. ' "They
can be depended upon to promote
the establishment of an internation
al court of conciliation, but at the
same time to protect this country
against the despotism of a super
government, backed tip by' the 'ma
jor forces of mankind," - whether
under the name of a league of na
tions or any other name. Thef ad
ministration can also be depended
upon to resume the policy which
distinguished this country before
the present administration, of pro

citizens wherever they might be, so
long as they conducted themselves!

Moore Strong For Harding.,

upon to restore to its fullest extent
that honor and respect which here

Londonderry, IrelandJune 19.
This city spent another night of ter
ror last night as a result of violent
oistol and rifle fiehting between na
tionalists and unionists. There was
a two-hour pitched battle . at the
river side. Comparative Quiet was
finally restored by the soldiery.
Many of the unionists engaged in
the hostilities were ex-soldiers.
The small police force was power
less and the military ultimately had
to, be called out. Comparatively
tranquil conditions were restored by
midnight, although firing continued
several hours more. -
The reports received by the au
thorities during the morning showed
that several men had been wounded.
, Dunne the fray, armed parties of
both factions controlled large areas
in various parts of the city. Ihese
parties stopped all pedestrians,
whom they searched tor arms. -
Londonderry was the scene oi
violent rioting on Saturday night,
May IS, unionists and nationalists
clashing for hours. A policeman
was killed bv the rioters and many
persons were wounded. The rioting
was renewed on sunoay, ana nun-

CSnecial.1 Aeitation for legislation
"to provide machinery through which
business men mav have official as
sistance in determining the legality
of a contemplated .course of conduct
is gaining momentum.
New interest has been aroused in
the subject as a result of the inclu
sion in the republican platform of a
plank recommending legislation
making possible advance rulings on
the question of anti-trust law viola
' The republican platform had the
following to say upon this point:
"We approve in general the exist
ing federal legislation against mo
nopoly ana combinations in restraint
of trade, but since the known cer
tainty of a law js safest of all, we
advocate such amendment as will
provide American business men with
better means of determining in ad
vance whether a proposed combina
tion is or is not unlawful.
To Reduce Prosecutions.
The question has come up for dis
cussion intermittently before con
gressional . committees and at
hearings before .the federal trade
commission. ' Business men have
made vigorous protests because of
proceedings brought against them by
the Department of Justice. or , the
federal trade commission for viola
tions of thejggnti-trust or federal
trade commission acts in cases where
thev suDoosed they were acting en
tirely within the law. There has been
no way in which advance . rulings
could be obtained.
Tust how provision can be made
for satisfactory advance rulings by
such a body as the federal trade
commission is a perplexing problem
W. B. Colver. a member of the com
mission, who has given the question
considerable thought, says that a
ruling in advance is an impossibility
in most instances, tie points out
that no man can say what his con

FOR TAMMANY HALL
Boss Murphy and Governor
Smith Reach Chicago Primed
To Fight Nomination, But
Meet Agreeable Surprise.
By GRAFTON WILCOX.
Chicago Trlbnne-Omaha B LaaMd Wtr.
Chicago, June 19. Charles F.
Murphy, boss of Tammany hall, and
Governor Alfred E. Smith, Tam
rany's complimentary candidate for
the democratic presidential nomina
tion, arrived in Chicago this morn
ing to be pleasantly disappointed.
I They had left French Lick Springs, ,
Ind., all keyed up lor a fight to pre
vent the nomination of William G.
McAdoo at San Francisco.
The first thine they learned on
reaching Chicago was that the fight
was oft, because Mr. McAdoo had
said he would accept the nomination
under no circumstances and that his
decision was irrevocable.
This action' by the former secre
tary of the treasury, whose nomi- s,
nation Tammany did not favor, left
Mr. Murphy with a bloodless vic
tory before he was even half way
to the scene of the projected en
counter. He did not say much
about it. ,
, Points to Wilson,
i "I said to Mr. Murphy and the
goverrior," said M. J. Brennan, aft
er an informal conference at the
Blackstone hotel, "that McAdoo's
withdrawal looked to me like a cer
tain indication that President WiH
son would like the nomination him
"What did Governor Smith and ,
Murphy say to that?"
"Well, I did not hear either of
them contradict me," said Brennan. '
"Do you really believe President
Wilson is a candidate?" Mr. Bren
nan was asked.
"I do not think then Is any doubt
about it," he -replied. "But I do
doubt the advisability of nominating
Mr. Wilson because of his unfortu
nate physical condition. It is prac
tically assured that the democrats
at San rrancisco will adopt a piat
forrti endorsing a league of nationsV'.
with reservations that do not.de' .
stroy the vitality of the league cove- .
nant. Mr. Wilson is the logical can
didate to run on such a platform.
But he is not a well man and' there '
are a number of able candidates."
Favor Governor Cox
Mr. Murphy would not discuss
politics for publication. . Neither
would Governor Smith, but they let
it be known that they looked favor
ably on the candidacy of Governor
James M. Cox of Ohio.
No formal conferences with the
leaders of the Illinois delegation
were held, but in the conference
with Mr. Brennan, Governor Smith

I. W. W. in Connection
With' Harbor Strikes
Washington, June ,19. Activities
of the I. W. W. in connection with
the Philadelphia and New York har
bor strikes were under investigation
today by the Department of Justice.
The longshoremen strongly oppose
any I. W. W. part in their labor dis
putes, according to department offi
cial1?. Pamphlets and bulletins printed
by the marine transport workers in
dustrial union at Philadelphia urging ,
continuation of the harbor strike
have reached the department along
with reports that I. W. W. emissaries
would continue their publication in
Alien members of the I. W. W., ac
cording to the department's interpre
tation of the- new alien exclusion law,
could be deported for unlawful par
ticipation in strikes. The depart
ment also holds that advocacy of sa
botage by an organization renders
alien members liable to deportation.
