j Josephus Uinlfls of North Carolina j
j lj looked iion us ihc most probablo j
1 lection for I'listiua-tcr-ticuernl. Thl N
j tho post Mr. Daniels desires. Whin
i William ,1 Mrynn left Washington for
j Florida Lift Sttmlay nliiht he stopped
J In North Carolina to he the guc of Mr
Daniels. It It said here thut the iniittcr
I of Mr. Daniels's place In the Cabinet
.. was unclotlbtcdlv dlscuacd ut tals meet,
j Inc. '
j There li reason to believe Mr. llrynn
ha 5 been coniiltlli!X more than one
,j prominent Democratic leader concern
J Ins tho makeup of the Wilson Cabinet,
.j No one Is prepared to siuigct thut he
has authority to make offer of places
'j In the Cabinet, but evidently he Is under
'j commission to learn the views of the
j leaders In order thut he may carry the
j Information to the President-elect.
; fine fart that seems reasonably well
, stabllshcd Is that Wllliuni McCombs
has no desire to servo In the Cabinet.
It Is t-ald he prefers to rest on his
1 laurels as the modest young man who
linade a I'resldent, and continue ns chair-
man of the Nntlonal Committee and
j pursue his professional career, which ut
'! this writing looks very promising.
j It Is expected that New York will
I: have a place In the Cabinet, but at this
I? time little consideration has been given
1 to the name of the New Yorker who .
will figure as n Cabinet Minister In the
! new Administration.
' rteprrscntatlvc W. C. Kedfield has
i been suggested, as has Norman E.
I Mack. Mr. Mack's friends know he
; would prefer a diplomatic post If he Is
"to accept any otllcc under the new Ad
; ministration. There Is an understand
! ing In Washington that William O. Mc
Adoo, whose name has been mentioned
In connection with the navy portfolio,
will not be In the Cabinet, one reason
being that be does not desire such scr
t Another Cabinet certainty 1 believed
to be Uepresentatlve A. S. Btirleon of
t Texas. The Texas delegation In Con
; Kress are unitedly In favor of him and
. his activity for Clov. Wilson In the pre-
convention campaign and his close per
sonal relations' with the President-elect
Jtnakti I: almost certain that he will be
,' named. A Senator, a close friend of Mr.
, Burleson, said to-day that the Texas
U member would be appointed Secretary
1 of Agriculture.
It Is evident from Information that
i reached Tun Sun correspondent to-day
' trom prominent Democrats tn Wahlng
,ton who are close to the President-elect,
that the work of building a Cabinet has'
proceeded much further than many per
sons had supposed,
The Cabinet offlre that Is giving
President-elect Wilson and his friends
most concern apparently Is the Secre
taryship of tho Treasury. President
I Wilson will probably not select this
I member of his Cabinet from New York
He will try to secure a man. It Is said,
who will be free from suspicion of any
'obligation to great financial or commer
cial Interests and yet one who will not
alarm any legitimate business Interests.
The general plan of forming the new
Cabinet, It Is understood now by the
Democratic leaders here, contemplates
one member from New England, one
from Now York and one from New Jer
sey, possibly one from Pennsylvania
and tho name of Uepresentatlve A.
Palmer Is most frequently mentioned In
the latter connection two or three from
the South, of whom Josephus DanlHs
nd .Representative Burleson are be
lieved reasonably certain. In addition
to Mr. Hryan for Secretary of State
there Is likely to be one member from
the Pacific const and one from the mid
Indiana will hardly figure In the cal
culation berniis" the Vice-President
comes from tliul Slate.
FrlendM of Cm llnrmon of uhlo
have been moving at lively In his behalf,
but there N decided opposition to him
from the progiesslve Democrats, which
Is bused m.ilnly on the character of his
lampaisn fund contributions.
Illinois oi .Missouri will piobably
make one contribution In th new Cabinet.

worst, a disagreement.
Dago Prank, the only gunman of the
four who steadfastly stuck to the story
that he was not present nt the shoot
ing, was so very hopeful that he was
to be "turned out." us he put It, before
nightfall that when he and the other
grnmen received the reporters .In the
Tombs after the verdict the tlrst thing
Frank did was to point to a bulging
suitcase in his cell.
"Why, I had this suitcase already
packed to go home," cried the excited
Frank. "A surprise'.' Don't that suit
case all packed look like I didn't expect
to be convicted?"
They were two In a cell now. Lefty
and Gyp the Dlood In one cell on the
tlrst tier and Dago Frank and Whltey
In the adjoining cell. And ns they now

rilled with angry disappointment that
his story that he alone of the three was
not even a witness to the killing that
be gave no time to lamentation, but In

lighted cell echo with his loud denun

Justice ChiII s charge to the Jury, they
ill agreed loudly, bail done the work.
They knew, they salil. before tin- thargi

Justlci- said was dilvlng 1ihih further i
"They'd have convicted n priest after

during one of his nervous trips from the
cot at the rear of the cell out to the
bars of the door.
Convicted Brforr the Trial.
"Aw, we was convicted before the
trial," shouted Oyp the Hlood, wlt! his
face pressed against the bars a yard
away, but unable to see Frank and
Whltey next door because of tho solid
shei t of metal that forms a side wall for
eaclh cell. And Gyp the Hlood, the only
one to say a connected sentence Imme
dlateli after the font had heard the ver
dict, had made the s.imc remark to
Deputy Fat Haley as Haley and three
other guard led the four from the trial
room after the jury had come In. Hut
during that short walk (iyp the Illood
had added also, "We was convicted by
the newspapers before the trial."
For half an hour In the Tombs a
steady stream of protest came from
back of the two barred doors, (5yp and
I.efty declaiming their Innocence in
quieter tones than the noisier Frank
and Whltey In the adjoining cell. All
four, save for b vague word of con
fidence at rare moments, seemed to ac
cept the vetdlct of an hour before al
most as final,
Second only to the charge of Judge
Goff itself, Oyp the Hlood named tlie
testimony of Jack Hose as tho most
damaging occurrence of the whole trial.
I.efty agreed with Oyp that Hobc'h
story, next to the charge, had been
the most telling testimony against them
and I.efty vnn the only one of tho
four who would admit that Shapiro's
Identifications of tho gunmen bh tho

Dago Frank would not admit that
there was anything In the trlul Itself
that caused the jury to convict him,
but that the charge of Justice Goff
by Itself had caused all of the Italian's
troubles. And Whltey waa loud In his
declurullons that they all would have
been acquitted, again excepting tho
charge, If It were not for tho closing
words of .Mr, Moss's Humming up on
"Moss slammed It Into thrm when

Whltey. "that the Jury would be n

they didn't bring In guilty against tis.
That's what made the Jury do like It
did. U was Moss telling them all the
people would think tluV were afraid
to convict uh If they brought In the
right verdict, and that's the only rea
son they done It. They was nfrnfd of

for tlie reason as they went out of their

Dago Frank was looking straight ahead

nervously to his right cheek and dabbed
at tho cheek lightly with his thumbnail.

"I believe thi-t verdict," District At

Whitman had told of his appreciation of
tin; part Judge Mulqueen iiaa played in
the Rosenthal case, "is the beginning of
the end of tbn.rulo of gangsters and gun
men in certain portions of tho city.
"Tho murder of Rosenthal, under all
the circumstances, protected us waa the
man nigh in pouco anntrs or tne city, .wan
a direct challenge to law and order and
to every decent man in the city and State,
And the support which tliis office received
and gratefully acknowledges from the
public and press demonstrated that tho
people of tho .Statu of New York wero
ready to accept the challenge and to
respond to tho call to vindicate the law
" rwenty-foiu- jurors have now passed
Ux)ii the initios involved in this verdict,
to say nothing of tho Grand Jury of tho
county, and I am yet to hear of a single
dissenting voice, "
Mr Whitman added that from Rose,
Webber, Vailon and Schepps he hart
learned since tho Rosenthal murder that
tho gangsters on tho I'-ast Hide, always
have lioaRled that ."no gunman ever has
gone to tho electric chair," And notwith
standing nil tho gun fights in which East
