this afternoon of tho sudden death of
apoplexy at noon of Mrs. Lovi Z. Lei
tor, one of the most popular social lead
ers of the 400 and' prominent in many
charitable and philanthropic move
ments. Mrs. Loiter had been ill only two
weeks, and her family anticipatcd.no
serious results. At tho time of her
death, Joseph Loiter, her only son, was
busy in the office of tho local gas com
pany. When it was seen she was dying
ho was hurriedly summoned, but he ar
rived too late. Sho was doad.
Mrs. Loiter was also the mothor of
the late Lady Curzou, wifo of the for

of Suffolk and Mrs. Colin Campbell,
both of whom reside in England.
Tt had not been determined tonight
whether the funeral will tako placo

where the body niaj- be taken. Only
tontative arrangements have been mado
ponding the arrival of Mrs. Loilor's
daughters, who have been cablod for.
Tho beautiful Loiter castlo on Du
pont circle was one of tho show places
of the national capital. Hero some of
tho most notable social functions of
Washington have occurred, Mrs. Loitor,
tho mistress of millions, spared no' ox
penso in lavish entertainments. She
took a very kindly interest in 3'oung
persons and has often been called the
matchmaker of Washington society

Mrs, Loiter was a noted horticultur
ist, and her conservatories wero her
pride and diversion. She has written
widely of flower culturo and her flower

President Wilson Turns Over
Appointments lo Various
Members of the Cabinet
HEAR OF NEW RUlTe
Friends of (he Executive Try

Will Happen Next That '
By JAMES J. MONTAGUE.
By International News Service.
WASHINGTON, March 6. Here
are the official acts of Wood
row Wilson on tho second day
of his term. Many of them
arc unusual. Somo of them are revo
lutionary: 1. Sent back to cabinet members the
resignations of assistant secretaries sent
him for action, with the Information
that those matters were for the cabinet
members to decide absolutely and with
out Interference by tho president.
2. Announced that all diplomatic ap
pointments will be made by the secre
tary of state, Mr. Bryan. This is an
action hitherto unheard of.
3. Told Senators Bryan and Fletcher
of Florida, who had asked him about
appointments of Florida federal judges,
that they must seo Attorney General
McReynolds about these appointments.
Inasmuch as the attorney general,
through his assistants, must "practice be
fore tho federal Judges ln question, the
president's action ln permitting him to
namo them was unprecedented and
caused a vast amount of comment.
Begins Work Early.
4. Got to work at 9 o'clock in the
morning and hold a cabinet meeting of
an hour and a half before 11.
5. Admitted to tho cabinet meeting
twenty men with cameras and permitted
them to photograph himself and the
cabinet members to their heart's con
tent. G. Had two earnest conferences with
William Jennings Bryan, presumably
about the Mexican situation. Although
both Bryan and the president refused
to give out any information about it,
Bryan said, the president would 'give out
the news. Tho president said it must
come from Bryan.
7. Received scores of delegations from
tho various states, but made It plain
to all of them, through Secretary' Tu
multy, that they must not mention tho
word ofJico -while in the Whltc house.
S. Pcrsundcd William F. McCombs to

cial Washington was tho president's an
nouncement that Attornoy General Mc

Wilson was most emphatic in making
this announcement. lie held up his
hand doprccatingly when Senators

said, "not to .talk of this matter to

Almost equallj- important is the presi
dent's assertion that Mr. Bryan will
deal with the diplomatic appointments.
This practically turns over to Mr. Bryan
tho highest class of patronage that is
to bo dispensed by the government
and raises tho position of secretary of
stato to the level of a political dis
tatorship. Friends of the president aro
trying to make themselves bclievo that
he will modify this ordor, but they aro
much afraid that he will not, and that
Mr. Bryan will name everj' diplomat.
On tho othe hand, the fricuds of Bryan
assert that tho president is merely
trying to pass along responsibility,
and that whilo ho himself will make
tho appointments Bryan will be
obliged to be a target for all tho
criticism that is likely to como from
disappointed scekors for high ofJice.

Secretary of State Sends Mes
sage to Legislative Commit

tions for Economy.
THINKS 31,500,000 IS
ENOUGH FOR BUILDING
Argues From Commission's
Figures That All Money
Available Is Not Really
HLP a million dollars will be
added to the general fund of
the state available for general
anpropriatiuns if tho legisla
ture acts favonibl- upon the recom
mendation of Secretary 0 Stato David
Mattson. Mr. Mattson will submit to
day to the joint appropriation commit
tee of the senate and houso a proposal
to rolicve the financial stringency of
tho stato by limiting tho cost of the
state capital to $1,500,000, and turning
back to the general fund of the state
.$500,000 of tho two millions of dollars
now available for tho construction of
the new capitol.
Mr. Mattson sets forth his plan in
detail. Ho points out that at present
tho cost of the state capitol is- limited
by statute to $2,500,000, though the cost
side cost of tho building, according to
tho most ornate plans yet considered
bj- tho capitol commission, is $1,470,910.
Tho contract for the erection of the
ibaro building has been let for $1,040,
000. For heating, wiring and plumb
ing an additional expenditure of $G6,
000 will be necessary. Tho commission
has tho option of making changes and
additions which will moan an addi
tional maximum cost of $304,910. The
outside expondituros for the erection
of tho capitol, Mr. Mattson points out,
will not oxeced $1,500,000, though for
capitol purposes more than two million
dollars are tied up.
For the erection of the state capitol
tho legislature in 1909 authorized a
bond issue of $200,000 and the use of
$85,000 in tho public building fund for
tho state capitol building. In 1911 tho
legislature authorized a bond issue of
$1,000,000, and made a special appro
priation of $750,000 for tho same pur
pose. This makes a total of $2,035,000
available for tho construction of tho
state capitol, or $535,000 in excess of
the $1,500,000 which Mr. Mattson sug
gests as the maximum cost of tho new
Mr. Mattson 's communication to the
appropriation committee follows:
To the Honorable Members of the
Joint Appropriation Committee of
the Tenth Legislature of the Stato
Gentlemen In view of your present
inability to meet the heavy demands
for appropriations with the available
revenues, I most respectfully bop to
call your attention to the advisability
of fixing, by statute, a limit of 51.
500,000 to tho ultimate cost of the
proposed capitol building.
The legislature of 1000, In authoriz
ing the erection of a stato capitol,
provided by law that the ultimate cost
of tills bulldlns- should not exceed tho
sum of $2,500,000. This amount, at
that time, represented a mere ap
proximation. Since then. however,
your capitol commission has. by dili
gent enterprise and labor, been able
lo determine upon an accurate esti
mate the complete cost of such a
building as will be In full keeping with
the demands and dignity of the stale.
Two Years Devoted.
Upwards of two years were devoted
to the work of research and Investi
gation on this subject During this
lime the members of the commission
personally vlsltod and inspected tho
state buildings of many of tho states.
Thus they formed their first Impres
sions of the character and cost of the
proposed 3tatc building for Utuh, Then
they carefully compared Ideas and
decided upon a praclicablo .scheme
of action. A general outline of the
bIzo. style and imbalance of the build
ing was prepared. This. In turn, was
submitted on a competitive basis to
the very best architects In the coun
try, with the further spcclllcatlon that
tho complete cost of the proposed
building should not exceed tho sum
The design submitted by Richard
Klctting. a prominent and reliable
architect, was eventually selected.
Considerable time was then devoted
to a minute revision of tho plans and
specifications. In this work tho mem
bers of tho commission were afforded
the great advantage of having Archi
