An Innovation that
Is Gaining Support
The pt'esidetl t elect Is repot ted to
favor the change urged In a recent
message by Mr. Taft of giving seats
on the floor of the house and sen
ate to cabinet officers. Practical
politics- may differ from able states
manship, but the supiK.rt that has
eenie to this suggestion is largely
due to a growing sentiment to the
effect that If anything much is to
be accomplished In congress that the
president has got to use the "big
stick" made famous by Colonel
EiOOsevelt. Already cabinet members
have the privilege of the floor in
both houses, though they can not
vote or address the. chair. At one
time when an attempt was being
made to override one of Mr. Taft 'a
vetoes, several cabinet, officers ap
peared on the floor of the house
and the next day "Rome howled,"
through the medium of the press, at
the "unwarranted Interference of the
executive In the affairs of the legis
lative branch of government." Hut
the veto was sustained, neverthe
less, demonstrating that there is
force In having cabinet officers get
busy among members of congress.
How the Government Gets
Seeds that Never Grow
The day of Joy among the seed
merchants was set for January 7,
this year, when old stock was pass
ed over to I'ncle Sam. The Depart
ment of Agriculture called for bids
for approximately 1,200,000 pounds of
vegetable and 50.000 pound of flow
er seed. It is a significant fact that
the seed dealers never oppose the
free distribution of government,
seeds, and the reason Is not difficult
to find. And congressmen and sen
ators hardly dare kh k, because they
are the chief beneficiaries of the
plunder plan. The Ik st seeds sup
plied by th.? government are from
the experimental farms.

Permanent Political Headquarters
The democratic and progressive
parlies, having determined that pol

erated only during campaigns, brave
opened headquarters In Washington.
The republican organization may do
likewise. "Publicity artists" will be
employed by each organization to
supply the customary " headquarters

The New Year's reception ait the

call, as t.he president got back from
