This is h.i-ause the President himself
has assigned piecetlence to the aim. as
announced in tlie lormal programme
made public by Mr. .1. Addison 1'orier,
the President's private secretary. And
it scenis to be thought that the teimrs
of such a situation ate removed by the
fact that "luasinuch as ladies hae no
place In the line with the Army, .N'avy
or Marine Corps, no question will at Ne
on that occasion as between Mrs. .Miles
and Mrs. Dewey."
Kut what about other occasions, less
formal thau the President's New Year
teception? Will it not he insisted that
tin- order of precedence thus laid down
shall prevail whenever the Mileses ami
the Deweys come together In Washing
ton life? And will Mrs. Dewey, the
wife of the hero of Manila Hay. be con
tent to trail alon at the h in of the

the hero of Puerto ltico?

There is cause for local gratification
in the showing of exceptionally small
