NOT PAY DEBTS
LINCOLN, Neb., Jun. 0. Thnt
President-elect Woodrow Wilson may
bo governed by higher motives than
gratitude in selecting tho members of
his official family is tho hope voiced
by William J. I try a it in tho current
issue of the Commoner.
"Cabinet positions," says the arti
cle, "ought not to bo rognrded as
currency with which to pay political
debts.. In filling them, tho president
elect should look to tho future and
not tn the past. A public official has
no right to discharge political obliga
tions at tho expense of tho public,
"The men Wilson selects should not
bo selected, not becauso of political
service rendered him or- even becauso
of past .service rendered tho demo
cratic party. Tho offices should bo
used to strengthen tho party and ad
vance those things for which tin
party stands, '
"Tho Commoner declines to discuss
cabinet position possibilities, hut it
ventures to express tho hope that
Wilson will bo govorncd by higher
motives than grutitudu in selecting
the members of his cubiuet."
