After Long Day s Fitful Fever Jor

Is Said

Final Appointment May Be De

dent elect Wilson
general anticipation that W ill am F
JlcCombs would announce esterda the,
Fnal selection of Eldridge 1 Jordan as
chairman of the Inaugural committee for
l&la was not fulfilled and when the Ions
day s fitful fever was ended there could
Te found but little If an change In
the publics belief that Mr Jordan would
eventuall) have the position
There was one notable development
however that eema not to have got out
tc the people It was that for the other
candidates of whom Robert N Harper
and William t. Cox are the most prom
lnent, the fight is being carried manfully
forward and there was a very credible
rumor that statements Intended to ex
lublt the merits of candidates were still
pursuing Mr McCombs whom the tele
craph reported to be basking In a New
5ork serenity gratefullv In contrast to
the two days and four or five hours of
harassing hurl) burly of Washington
Because of the day passing without a
chairman being named, there went about
a rumor that the slating of Mr Jordan
might have met a serious obstacle and
hat Mr Harper or Mr Cox or a dark
bourse might win
The report current some time ago that
the appointment of the chairman might
not be made until after President-elect
"Wilson returns to the L nited States from
Bermuda alo began the rounds last
night
If the appointment of the inaugural
chairman is delayed until President elect
Wilson returns to the United States
there will remain two and one half
month Including the Christmas holl
days for the committee to do Its work.
There Is none too much time It was
asserted last night, by men of expe
Hence, and thehope was expressed that
when the announcement is finally made.
there will bo such implicit understand
inc between the national and local In
tereots that the preparation" for the
Inauguration may go forward with expe
ditlon. x
Interest in the personnel of the entire
committee and Its sbcommlttee is grow
Ins, too EspeclaUy In view of the
shortening time In which the committee
can do Its work, there Is a general con
cent In the make-up of the body which
will devolve the duty and the respond
blllty to make the Presidents advent a
complete success so far as his welcoming
capital Is a contrlbntlv e factor
On that account It Is probable that
public sentiment will Incline toward tha
committee. Including men w, have
erred In previous Inaugural committees.

several Inaugurations, and are so- to

ment
So far as the legislative branch is con
cerned where the final action of the
government must be framed there was
scircel a ripple of Interest in Great
Britain s demand The Senate final ar
biter for this countrj In treatv matters
regards the I anarha tolls que-tion as a
closed incident.
The President with his Cabinet and the
legal authorities of the State Depart
ment took up the con"lderat on of thc-e
two problems
Is the question of the exemption
mcrican coistwle ships from Panama
Canal tolls arbitrable with Great Britain'
Should tie ue&tioii in an event be
passed to arbitration in view of the
flatly tegative action ilreadv taken by
the Senate
At the 1 It House and State Depart
ment it is stated authoritative! that no
conclusion was reached This was partlv
because the Cabinet is divided in sent!
ment and partlv bectuse it was lmpos"l-il
Iengthv communication from Great Brit
aln at one sitting
Knox ltrinnln I Irm
Secretarv Knox Is firm for tl e meri
can view Jf the tolls question 1 olding
that this countrj has an absolute right
under the Hav Pauncefote treaty to
make such regulations concerning do
mestlc canal traffic as Congress mav see
fit.
Secretarv of War Stimson Is against
free passage for American coastwise
ships rom i purely commercial point
of view and this slant inclines him to
look with tolerance upon the British pro
test. Secretarv Nagel although deter
mined to stand bj the bill as it was
enacted feels that the same object could
have been obtained in a waj that would
have left no ground for protest.
It Is admitted by both the W hite House
and State Department that anj decision
bj the Cabinet cannot be conclusive As
In the case of the New Foundland fsh
eries which wtnt to The Hague the
1 anama tolls arbitration question must
come before the Senate for ratification
If the State Department decided to set
the machinery of The Hague con v en
tion 'n motion
There Is little doubt In the minds of the
Cabinet official that if Secretary Knox
sends to the Senate the necessary special
agreement for referring the toll question
ot The Hague It would be decisively
beaten and therein the Incident would
end
Neither the .President nor the State De
r--tment has given any attention to the
position of Canada en the tolls question
i i the undercurrent or belief in diplo
matic circle here that Great Britain was
driven to her protest bv the complaints
of Canadians who are anxious to take
care of tho Canadian Pacific Railway and
its steamship connections w hich are hard
int by the Panama Canal act
'Would Ignore Cannda
It was officially states yesterda that
Canada is of minor Importance In the
situation, as it is swallowed up in the
great vital questions which the-President
and State Department has tmder discus
slon. The counselors of the State Dc
partment hold that Canada cannot under
take to show her teeth br retallatorv
action against the United States
If Canada attempts retaliation the mat
ter at once would be called to the atten

PLANS FOR THE FUTURE
T. R. and Chicago Conference
Decide on Ways to Keep
Party Alive.
Chicago, Dee 10. Bull Mooters who
desire to dance for the next four years
must pay the fiddler themselves
George W Perkins William (linn and
the Plnchot brothers will 1 e permitted
to subscribe as much as tl ev phase
but other members will have to sub
scribe also
That is what Col Roosevelt himself
told his Moose followers to day That
the plan of organization and main
tenance that was advocated
Brleflv It means that professed par
tlcipatlon in the Bull Moose party Is to
entail the payment of dues It means
that the Moosers not only propose to
keep their organization working ever)
day In the ear for the next four years
but also to collect against the needs of
the next national campaign the largest
fund possible
Benjamin Fav Mills put the sum the
Moosers could raise at JiOOOCiGO a month
An assessment of 3 cents a month on
those who voted the ticket he pointed
out, would produce that sum
1 n until Nominated
Further In the course of the day s
doings at the conference Col Roose
velt was re nominated as the part a
candidate for I'resident tn 191$. But the
colonel let the Moosers know that they
need not worry about the leadership of
the part That will be attended to
when the occasion arises he said. Then
however came n significant warning to
those who might want to run for the
President -J'
No mat can come this f ty
that 1 e can establish a inuim on lr he
must be content with the opportunttv
It offers for service and for tacrine e
said Col Roosov elt

Into the ballroom at the La Salle Hotel
for thw all-day session over which
Chairman Jo"eph M Dixon of the a

Walter F Well and Benjamin ha.i
Mills The rest was what one mcml er
called woof wah that Is to sav ion
fessions of faith and experiences
"peaks of Cnmpnlt.ii I mill
The colonel naturally had his a fir-t.
I believe" he said that political
parties should be controlled and be
paid for as far as possible b the ac
tual men and womrn who vote In dec
tlons 1 am willing that the parti should
take the large campaign contributions
If honestlj offered without conditions or
reservations. The real test of such gifts
is the motive and not the size The
broader however we make our due
paving membership the better It is for
the ITogressive party and for political
genialitv In general
Next the colonel Insisted that the parts
rsmim uy u& iimuurni Hna mane no a
Pfiances even down to county supervisors
Dut ne did not si that progressive
measures made bj others might not be
supported But he also gave warning
tint the onlv progressive orthodox! Is
Bull Moose orthodoxv and that an oth
er so-called progressive orthodoxv Is
heterodox
"No part he said talking against the
recall of Judicial decisions which denies
the right of the people to secure justice
as we Progressives propose when the
courts interpret the Constitution so as
to enthrone Injustice has any right to
claim consideration for sincerity in an
effort to work for social and Industrial
Justice
I railers to Develop
In regard to leaders! ip the colonel
said both local and national we trust
that events of the next year or two w
develop our ablest and most resourceful
men.
The colonel Interpolated a few hundred
words in his set speech about the Idaho
courts calling them more names than
he did in the campaign and asking the
Part to hire a lawjer and defend Editor
Sheridan of Boise In the contempt case
against him because he printed the colo
nel s telegram
Miss Jane Addams supported the plan
of organization for continuous work for
e next four vears '
Then came the report of Dr Well the
expert on money raising
His proposal was for the largest Dos
slble dues paying membership of both
men and women and with preference
In the party organization to those who
do pay dues
Mr Mills followed with his organlza
tlon suggestions, and then considerable
time was demoted to experiences
