At Frisco Convention.
FOUR NAMES PROMINENT
AS DELEGATES ARRIVE
McAdoo, Palmer, Marshall and
Cox Mentioned as Most
Likely Winners Leaders
Uncertain How to Turn.
By GEORGE R. HOLMES.
Intarnatldnal Nwh Service Staff ('orrf-
San Francisco, . June 23. Unless
if-mething is forthcoming from the
White House which will change
plans now in the making, it is certain
that n6 less than 15 names will be
: presented to the democratic conven
tion here next week as possible re-
cypients tor nomination honors.
Aside from the name of Woodrow
Wilson, four names staad out pre
eminently today as the vanguard of
the delegates began to arrive. These
are William G. McAdoo, A. Mitchell
, Palmer, Vice President- Thomas R.
Marshall and Gov. James E. Cox
Tin; continued silence from the
White House on the question of a
third term or on any particular can
didate is creating a situation akin to
that existing in Chicago right-tip un
till the Saturday upon which Sena
tor Harding was nominated. The
delegates .and political mentors al
ready here are uncertain which way
to turn for guidance or a fight.
Feel He Will Talk.
Thcreis a distinct feeling among
arrivals that the silence, from the
White House is soon to be broken
that the president will in a few days
cither nominate or eliminate him
self or else he will throw the tre
mendous weight of his support be
hind 'some one cf the IS men in the
striving. . " '
.National Chairman Homer Cuiu
mings is in daily coiniftunication
'with the White House. HeNjas in
stant access to Pennsylvania avenue
both by private telephone wire and
by telegraph. He .has talked this
week with Secretary Joseph Tu
multy and with others of the presi
dent's immediate family.' j
The results of these conversations

here to any of his -numerous lieu
tenants on the ground. It is, how
ever inconceivable to many of the
delegates and politicians here that

JcadeV of the party, will allow nearly
l.OOOl-uninstrticted delegates o go
into free and open convention with
out some vord as to how the White

day, tbA situation is siiiiilar to that
existing in Chicago. Everybody is
waiting; nitfvously foreword from "a
sick man"Vvho lays aKthe end of a
private liner.iany miles away from
the scene of f ction.
RumoVs Are Many.
- The uncertainty of the situation
has resultednn gfring San Francisco
a flock of rumors- which completely
overshadows the Chicago crop.
Pne of these current today was
t&at the president has decided to
pay a long standing debt and throw
the weight of administration support
behind' Champ Clark, as a recom
pense for Baltimore in 1912.
The former speaker heretofore
had been considered an outsider in
this race: The rumor is given sonie
credence by the presence here of
Benncrt E. Clark, the Missourian's
so:i. . . '
Another report current in the lob
hies, today was that both the Mc
Adoo and Palmer candidacies would
benefit by a White House declara
tion at the 11th hour.. So far. Homer
Cummings is the only man in San
Kr.mcisco oositivclv known "to have
conversed with the Xhftc House
and on all matters affecting the pres
ident he is mum.
. Fight Looms Imminent.
The' proposed tight between the
administration and anti-administration
forces is looming stronger as
convention time approaches. It is
expected to crystallize with the ar
rival of the New York, New Jersey,
Indiana, Illinois, Massachusetts and
Ohio delegations and their big fol
lowing. ,'Hints ot a compromise already
are in, the air here. The one most
often heard is a situation which
would allow the president to write
the platform with complete en
dorsement of the league of nations
and the "antis" to nominate the can
didate unhampered by White House
dictation. , 1

Overcome by the warmth of the
reception and the cries of "speech,"
Johnson stepped on to the platform
of his Pullman and told the crowd
how glad he was that California
and particularly his home city, gave
him such a tremendous vote at the
presidential primary election.
"Don'timagine I'm cast down by

Senator Johnson. "I'm happier

that former Secretary of the Treas

while President Wilson himself, he
says, "need not be considered." '
Asserting that Mr. McAdoo is also

Mr. McAdoo is unable to call to his
support "those, to whom the presi

however, that Mr. McAdoo has con
