Kalston to re Put la Nomination. "Tom" Taggarr of Indiana. Democratic leader of that State, announced this afternoon that the name of Senator Samuel L. Ralston would be placed in nomination. This marks a change in tactica. inasmuch as it had hitherto bn planned not to present Senator Ilalston's name, but to hold him in reserve until an, pppropriate moment came lo put I him over a a "dark horse." Thin means mat Indiana a delegation wui rote for Ralston from the first ballot. Taggart's original idea was to allow his delegates to npiit up on the first few ballots, to rally later to Ralston lis the start of a swing in his direction. An attack on John V. Davis this ftftenoon as counsel to the StandarJ Oil Company in Its international affairs for the pas' two years caused many delegates to shake their heads and remark that it would be better to throw such vulnerable men as McAdoo. Smith and Davis out of consideration afHr a few ballots and concentrate on seme person of leas prominence, but greater strength of background and association.

Thirty of these women were around the Davis headquarters at the Waldorf today, and all wanted to talk at once about their candidate and their "dry" views. Mrs. Frank N. Mann of Hunting- ion, W. Va.. heads the Davla wom en, and received more votes for delegate-at-large than any other candidate In the State. Sha Is the sister of Mrs. Frank Dixon of Brooklyn, who was also rooting for uavia. jnrs. jviann is aiao vice cnairman for West Virginia and member of the League of Women Voters.

Mrs. Mann led off the discussion of Davii and said: "Ths chief reasons for presenting the nama of our candidate for President are that he has no handicap, needs no apologies or explanations, and he could weld Into a compact organization the various elements of our party ana secure in uongress progressive legislation. He is of International dimensions and would look at na tional Issues with world-wide vision. As a man he represents the highest and noblest type of American man- noon. But you haven't aald a word snout prohibition," broke In Mrs. Andrew Price, also a delegate-at-liirfc-e. "We are or prohibition as It stands and for stricter enforce ment of the law than we now have.' Mrs. William Campbell, a third delegate-at-large, said: "I am for a plank that will support the League of Nations, as nearly Ilka tha Ideal of Woodrow Wilson aa It la possible to get," and the rest nodded an proval. Mrs. Campbell stressed also tne desire of Wert Virginia women to secure a child labor plank In the piat-rorm. Mrs. Douglas W. Brown, Demo cratic chairman for Cabell County, added a different thought. "We all admire and love Mrs. Davis." she aald, "and feel that ahe Is not only a charming woman but that she has been fitted by training; and experi ence to ne a gracious hostess of the Whlta House and to be really the nrst lady in the land.' " Mrs. Lucy M. George, member of tha State Democratlo Executive Committee, approved of all tho others had stated and added: .''We West Virginia women are first and foremost for Prohibition and believe that Mr. Davla would most faithfully represent us ir elected president."

A (50,000 alienation suit brought by Emanuel Victor Modica, the youth whose name was linked with that of the Countess dePerlgny, formerly Margaret Thaw Carnegie, against Louis D. Martlno, of 670 E. 2td st. and the latter's wife, Lucretia, and son. Attlllio, came to light In Justice Benedict's part of the Supreme Court today when the Martlnos asked the Court to strike out of the complaint statements described as "scandalous, impertinent, irrelevant and useless." Martlno is the father of Mrs. Made line Hulea Modica, Emanuel's wife, wno has Brought a 1500,000 allena tion suit against the Countess. He retaliated with a habeas cornua cro ceeding for the custody of their". little daughter and made the vehicle for his advent as a witness, testifying mat tne alienation suit against the Countess was a "frame-up" and that he had loaned Frank P. Walsh, hit wife lawyer, some letters he had received from the Countess, and di rected his wife to consult Walsh about the alienation suit. This wa aeniea. . The complaint In tha alienation suit against hia wife's Darenta and her brother contains the same story and It Is this that the defendants asked Justice Benedict to strike out. fyio complaint adds an allegation to the effect that In furtherance of the plot to mulct tho Countess, he made an agreement with his wife's parents to live separate from them but that he was to see his wife and child secretly. He alleges they tricked him In that and poisoned hia wife's mind agaln&t him so that she refused to keep her part of the bargain and actually went ahead with a divorce suit against him, naming the Countess as corespondent. In her plea for alimony some weekg ago she submitted to the Court three "endearing" letters which Mrs. Car negie, now the Countess, had written to Modica.
