Willis of Ohio, Dwight W. Morrow,
Governor John Fisher of Pennsyl-
vania, George Wharton Pepper of
Pennsylvania, Nicholas Murray But-
ler, president of Columbia universi-
ty, and Senator Borah, chairman of
the foreign affairs committee were
mentioned by Dr. Cuncannon as the
niost likely dark horse candidates.
The Democrats, in their party,
have Senator Walsh of Montana,
Newton D. Baker of Ohio, Governor
Al Ritchie of Maryland, and Senator
George of Georgia. All of these men,
in the opinion of Dr. Cuncannon, are
possible dark horse candidates for
the nomination in the event that the
early balloting fails to result decis-
The dark horse is called in several
ways, according to Dr. Cuncannon.
President Garfield, in 1880, was cho-
sen in this manner because he was
floor manager for John Sherman of
Ohio, an unsuccessful candidate.
"Like John Alden he pleaded anoth-
er's case so well lie got the prize,"
Dr. Cuncannon said. Willian Jen-
nings Bryan gained the nomination
as the result of a brilliant oration,
and President Harding was chosen
because he was known as chairman
of the 1916 Republican convention.,
Generally the dark horse candidate
receives a few votes on early ballots,I
but sometimes, as in the case of
James K. Polk, the first dark horse,c
who received no votes until the i
eighth ballot and was nominated on
the ninth, a man is entirely unheard
of in the voting during the early
part of the convention.

HAVANA, Feb. 16.-Charles Evans
Hughes, chairman of the American
delegation at the sixth Pan-American
conference, amid the applause of the
representatives of all the republics of
the western world, today, threw the
whole weight of the United States be-
hind the proposal to outlaw all ag-
gressive warfare in this hemisphere.
At the same time Mr. Hughes out-
lined to the conference the plan for
the maintenance of American peace.
He was again enthusiasitically ap-
plauded when he declared his country
to be "opposed to any acts of aggres-
sion, desirous of seeing force abol-
ished from this hemisphere, and seeks
nothing but the prosperity, independ-
ence and friendship of all, the Ameri-
can states."
