SIX MEMBERS OF
Sentenced by Judge for Con
tempt of Court Women, ,
Escape With Fines.
Chicago Tribune-Omaha Bee Leased Wire.
Chicago, June 22. Six male
members of the Chicago Board of
Education and the attorney for the
board '.vere ,given jail sentences
ranging from one to five days and
fined from $150 to $750 each for
contempt of court by Judg Kick
ham Scanjan today. Three women
members were fined, one -of , them
$500 ind. ,the, other, two $Z5Q each,
but they escaped the fcjail sentence.
All furnished bonds and are at lib
erty pending an appeal.
" Thisvis the latest development in
the ' strenuous battle over posses
sion for Chicago schools and will
be followed by additional fights in
the courts. It leaves the schools
in possession of the board appoint
ed by the mayor, who was elected
both times chiefly on the school
issue, so there is room for the as
sumption that the present board
meets the approval of a majority
of the citizens.
Today's action is the result of
the ousting of Dr. Charles E. Chad
scy.. The board that was ousted
by Mayor Thampson had brought
Dr. Chadsey here from Detroit and
installed him as superintendent. To
prevent raids on the board's of
fices, detectives were employed, to
guard the rooms, but there were
some ugly scenes at board meet
ings and elsewhere. Dr. Chadsey
never took any part in the bicker
ings. 'He tendered his resignation
after being ousted and is now con
nected with the University of Illi
nois, whece he is in charge of the
summer 'ses'sion, which opened in
Urbana, III., today.
Mayor Thompson was present in
court today when sentence was
passed upon his school board mem
bers. He refused to comment on
the action other than to remark:
"They aren't in jail yet."
Judge Scanlan has had the case
under. advisement for several
months. It has been pushed vigor
ously by. State's Attorney Hoyne,
who was joyful over the verdict
The, technical charge was obstruct
ing the administration of s Dr.
Chadsey ses superintendent, strip
ping Irija of, all power, ignoring his
recommendations and .literally
forcing him to resign in order fo
retain his self-respect. -

Question of Whether Chief
Executive Will Be Candidate
At Democratic Convention
Subject of Much Speculation.
MANY FEEL NOMINATION
Fear Stampede Willing to
Compromise on Cox, Marshall
Or Clark if Palmer looses Out.
By ARTHUR SEARS HENNING.
Chicago Trlhnne-OmaAat Bee leaned Wire,
board Convention Special, Pueb
lo, Colo., June 22. The enigma of
the White House and the mystery
cf McAdoo have keyed to a high
pitch the interest and speculations
of the hundreds of democrats jour
neying to their national convention
at San Francisco.
, Whether President Wilson is actu
ally a receptive candidate for a thirt'
term and whether his son-in-law
William Gibbs McAdoo may not, de
spite his positive withdrawal, be
nominated after all, are the major
topics of discussion in the informa
club car and smoking compartment
caucuses of lbe delegates. As the
days pass without any word from
the White House to dispel the wide
spread impression that the presi
dent's attitude toward the nomina
tion is a receptive one, the predic
tion is heard with increasing fre
quency that if Mr.N Wilson, really
wants the honor by the time the vot
ing stage is reached, the convention
undoubtedly will accommodate him.
Delegates who are hoping and pray
ing that the president will thrust
aside the crown with no uncertain
gestures readily concede that the
convention might easily be stam
peded to the renomination of Mr.
Strong for Palmer.
"We arey for Palmer," said an
anti-administration leader from file
midwest. "Cox would be accepta
ble to us. We would be willing to
compromise on Tom Marshall or
Champ Clark and our friends east
and west are strong enough to
block the nomination of any man
we do not like."
"That is, you can do anything
except stop the renomination of the
president?" I suggested, - '
"That's about it, T gucss." be re
ptitd. "ThotTgh; of course, rwe
should not want to prevent his re
nomination if he wants' it. -We
could win handily with Wilson. We
don't like him much, but ' we ad
mire him and conceded his great
ness. Looks very much to me as
if he is willing and if that's so,
look out for a Wilson stampede in
The only certainties of the situa
tics seen by the delegates are:
-"The possibility of the renomina
tion of the president will continue
a primary factor in the deliberations
of the convention unless Mr. Wil
son definitely removes himself from
the reckoning in a message to the
gathering or to one of his spokes
men on the scene. '
McAdoo Out of Race.
McAdoo is definitely out of it unV
less the president should eliminate
himself. In that event there would
arise strong possibility of a stam
pede to McAdoo despite his refusal
to permit presentation of his name
to the convention. Every scrap of
information concerning the real at
titude of the president is being
eagerly sought by the delegates and
their leaders. Senator Carter Glass
of Virginia, who had a 40-minute
talk with Mr. Wilson Saturday, and
all other senators, representatives

Allied Council Decides
To Wage War Against
New York Timea-rhleaao Tribune Cable,
Boulogne, June 22. The only def
inite decision reached in the allied
council at Boulogne was to niake
war on the Turlc" nationalists ?nd
to enforce the Versailles treaty.
The first action will be undertaken
by the Greeks, who, however, are
forbidden to pass a certain line not
made public. But certainly it is iar
enough from Constantinople to pre
vent the Greeks from entering-iliat
city. As compensation the Greeks
will get a mandate for, or definite
annexation of Smyrna.
Although Premier Millerand re
fused to allow the amount fixed as
indemnity which Germany must pay
to be announced,' it is certain it is
120,000,000,000 gold marks ($25,000,
000.000). The Russian question was dis
cussed, but was left much up in the
air. England agreed not to take Rus
sian gold, leaving that as security
for Russia's debt to France.

AT LOS ANGELES
IN THREE YEARS
Disturbance Ascribed to Slip
ping of Strata in Geologi
San Francisco, Tune 22. The
temblor , that shattered Inglewood,
Los Angeles county, last night was
southern California's second experi
ence with earth shocks within three
years. On April 21, 1918, the
towns of San Jacinto and Hemet,
in Riverside countv, about 70 mil's
southeast of Los Angeles, were se
verely damaged in a series of three
earthquakes. -The effect of the dis
turbance was plainly felt in Los
Angeles, where plate glass windows
were broken. An earthquake af
fecting the ' same ...territory oc
curred -on December.-2S,-;lel89,- Bnd
there was extensive property dam
age and " some loss of life.
No earthquake has occurred in
California in recent years, how
ever, approachirfg the severity of the
disaster that was visited on San
Francisco on. April 18, 1306, when
the city was. laid in ruins through
the combined effects of the earth
disturbance and fire.
Laymen familiar with causes of
earthquakes in this state ascribe
last night's disturbance in southern
California to slipping of the strata
in the principal geological fault ex
tending along the coast, range
mountain's from 1 a point on the
northern , California coast about
200 miles north of San Francisco
to the Gulf of Lower California.
This fault follows the coast line
closely for a distance of about 100
miles south of San Francisco when
it swerves inland approximately 20
miles and gradually extends fur
ther eastward, traversing Los An

bare, hands to fight the- enraged
beast, but Mrs., Liddel seized the
creature's horns in an effort to save
her husband. The cow then at

her on its horns and goring her
when she fell to the ground.
Both would have been killed , at
