WASHI.VOTO.V. Dec. 6 The ar-
rival hero today of Alva II. McDon-
ald to aid In promoting tho deal to
havo Mrs. Jako Hamon named as
the now republican national commit-
teeman from Oklahoma was the first
development along that lino hero.
McDonald left Oklahoma tho day
before Hamon was shot nnd was In
New York when he died ami stated
on his arrival heru that he was mere-
ly on his way home.
Ho called on Senator-elect Ilarrold
and solicited his support for Mrs.
Hamon. Tho senator very emphat-
ically declined to glvo It.
McDonald put In tho day trying
to arrange a meeting with Senator
Harding through Harry Daughorty
to Induce him if possible to Indicate
a dcslro to seo Mrs. Hainan selected.
At a late hour tonight tho result
of his efforts were still In doubt
but In view of the widespread public-
ity given tho Hamon n(falr any state-
ment or personal desires purporting
to eminato from tho piosldonl-olect
can be accepted with considerable
Tight on .llin Harris.
Telegrams received from Okla-
homa Indicate that tho Hamon fol-
lowing are directing their flro chiefly
against Jim Harris for committee-
man rather than against Harreld
whoso selection cannot he placed on
tho grounds of him being a candi-
date but rather us tho compromlso
choice between nil factions and
against which no logical argument
can bo brought except by thoso who
havo a purely selfish or factional
Interest to sorvo. For no matter
who Is commlttpr-mnn during tho
next nix years for Oklahoma Har-
reld's own position Is such that his
volco In tho really vital affairs will
Heal Campaign for Widow.
Thcro Is no longer any doubt how-
ever that h campaign of formidable
proportions backed by ample fund
from somo ourcc. Is under full
swing and that every string familiar
to seasoned political manipulators
Is being pulled to put Mrs. Hamon
over. 'Already at least two nnd
possibly three Oklahoma politicians
nro claiming that In the event of her
selection they will bo the power be-
hind Him throne and If thoy enn keep
from fulling out among themselves
It Is not unlikely that I his will bo

they would not bo nblo to amicably
agree among themselves as to who

ly nt work and for such unknown
purposes may bring on complications
that will bo harmful In a very far
Confers Willi Knnchrrty.
Ixitn tonight McDonald hunted tip
newspaper men representing Okla-
homa newspapers to r1v them an
Item to send to Oklahoma saying
that ho nnd been in coherence with
Harry M- Daughorty Henntnr Hard-
ing's pro-convention manager 'Mc-
donald asked that ho ho quoted In
Oklahoma newspapers oh saying
that ho predicted thu selection of
Mrs- Hamon following his tjilk with
McDonald nlso predicted that tho
majority of tho state committeeman
In Oklahoma aro now ready to voto
for Mrs. Hamon. He seemed nnxldiis
that tho Impression bo created In
Oklahoma that Mr. Harding him-
seir' Is ror Mrs Hamon.
