PRINCETON. Jan. 19. There Is not a
man Jn the United States who knows
that he is to be a member of President
Wilson's Cabinet. There Is not a man
in the United States who has discussed
beitiR a Cabinet officer with President
elect Wilson. There Is not a man In
the country who has been tendered or
promsed a Federal office by the President-elect.
Governor Wilson himself Is authority
for these statements, which should put
a stop for the time being, at least, to
the reports from Washington, Xew
York. Xew Rochelle, Seatucket, and
Painted Post that it is all over but the
shouting concerning one big Federal
job, at least.
When the governor was asked
whether he could give a. few hundred
thousand waiting Democrats any fur
ther light on possible Cabinet appoint
ments, he said:
"You gentlemen don't seem fully to
understand my ablMty to keep my mind
open. I may have a. man in mind for
a.rtime and consider It and then some
thing may come up and I lay it asido.
I'do rot intend to close my mind until I
consider it necessary. Then I shall
n &ke up my whole slate all at once. I
shall not announce appointments plcce
Admits It Takes Time.
"It will be necessary, of course, to
consult with these men first, sq that
you may know they will accept," was
"Oh, 1 can consult with them any
time, snd I will make no announce
ments until they have consented to
"That may take some time.'
!i"Yes, i- may. I don't suppose 1
shall be able to make the announce
ments at once, even after I have com
pleted jny slate."
'Isn't it iwssible, then, that It will
be 'near March 4, before the announce
ment Is made?"
"Yes, I understand that the rule has
been to announce the Qabinet a few
days before Slarcji t It Is possible
that I will not make public the slate
until sometime after it is made up.
''In the past," he was reminded,
"some of the Cabinet places were
promised before election."
"'"Yes." replied the governor, laughing.
MT know all about that. It certainly
Amplified the work of the -Presidentelect."
"Yes, and of the correspondents," he
w told. He laughed again.
'Governor Wilson was asked whether
Jje could give cny estimate as to the
number of names that had formally
been placed before him. He replied in
the negative. He also said he did not
.know of a single instance In which a
name had been presented with a pe
tition, though many had been received
with numerous indorsements.
"I don't know," he declared, "that
a name accompanied by a petition
would sink into my consciousness."
Replying to another question, he said.
No Conferences On Cabinet
- "No, I have not conferred with any
one as to acceptance of a place in the
"Do you mean. Governor, that you
have not conferred with any man who
may be In the Cabinet?"
"Oh, no. What I mean is that I have
7iot conferred with any individual as to
his serving In my Cabinet. I have con
ferred with men who may poslsbly be
on my slate eventually."
"How about officers other than Cabi
"The same thing applies. I have not
talked with any one about his accept
ing office, though I have discussed vari
ous men with many of my callers, both
with regard to Cabinet and other offices.
But I have kept my mind open and
have made no decisions whatever."
In the course of the conversation the
governor expressed his opinion of a
"A Cabinet position." he said, "is a
hard one and an Important one. For
"his successes, a Cabinet officer gets
jllttle or no credit, while for his mis
takes he catches it good and hard."
f'Yet. men don't seem afraid of It any
more than they do of getting large
wealth, which also brings large respon
sibilities." spoke up a questioner.
"But a man can do as he likes with
large wealth," said the governor, "and
with a Cabinet office he cannot."
Milk and Bottles
Spilled Into Gutter
The gutters at the corner of Thirty-sixth
street and Prospect avenue
northwest, ran white with milk this
morning, when a wagon of the White
Cross Milk Company was overturned
by a runaway horse.
The animal became frightened at
Thirty-sixth and P streets, and dHt-ii-rA
down Thirty-sixth street, where it
turned In the face of the embank

who are contesting efforts of Mrs.
Procter to have a divorce granted the

yesterday that thev had Investigated
the claim of Mrs. proctor that she was

true. Mrs. Procter was formerlv Baroness

a divorce on June 8 without a contest.
Mrs. Procter claimed she was prevent

WILMINGTON. Del.. Jan. 19. "Wil
mington Is looking for a Moses to lead
It out of the bondage or the legalized
marriage traffic which has made this
city a Gictna Green for hundreds of
couples from Philadelphia and other
citlcE." says the Rev. William II. Hantz
mon. of the First Methodist Protestant
Church here, to the congregation of
.vhlch the Rev. George I.. Wolfe, the
"marrying parson" of Wilmington, was.
up to the time of the advent of Mr.
Hantzmon in this city, pastor.
"As long ns they (Wllmlngtonlans) git
Mill and make no effort to release them
selves." he adds, "they will remain fast
in the claws of the devil."
He further said: "There has been no
definite move, so far as I know, to have
the Rew George L. Wolfe return his
ministerial credentials to the Maryland
annual conference of the Methodist
Episcopal church, which meets-thls year
at Lynchburg, but there probably will
be some action taken."

DOVER. DeU Jan. 19. On the eve of
the Democratic caucus to chose a suc
cessor to United States Senator Harry
A. Richardson. Republican, whose term
expires, former Congressman Levin Irvine-
Handy announces his withdrawal
from the race for the Senatorshlp. He
engaged in an active campaign, but
realized, after the failure of the twelve
Kent county members of the legislature
to agree vupon a single candidate from
tnat county, that it was useless for him
longer to make a fight.
Mr. Handy today Issued the following
"I desire to make public announce
ment that I release all of my political
friends in the general assembly from
Z.H promises and obligations to vote for
me In the caucus next Monday for
United States Senator. In this connec
tion. I express the hope that the choice
for Senator may prove wise and. gen
erally acceptable to the people of Dela
ware." The Democratic members of the as
sembly will meet here tomorrow night
to caucus, and there now seems to be
no doubt or the selection of Willard
Saulsbury. of Wilmington, Democratic
national committeeman from this State.
Strong efforts were made in the past
week by friends of former Senator R.
R. Kenney to undermine Saulsbury's
strength by getting the Kent county as
semblymen to bind themselves to sup
port a Kent county man for the place,
first, last and all the time. The Demo
crats have a majority of three on joint
ballot, and fucIi action would have
caused a deadlock.
Efforts also were made. It In said, to
Induce the Kent county members of the
legislature to center on Henry Ridgely.

The war over the tariff, which is to
bo renewed In the extra session next
I spring, and the pattering of the skirm
ish fire of which Is already audible. Is
going to be waged around a new phrase.
No longer will much he heard of free
trade, no longer will discussion be so
largely confined to protective tariff and
tariff for revenue. In the coming strug
gle, the "competitive tariff" is going to
hold the boards and be In the lime
light. Neither In 1909 nor before that, nor in
the almost unceasing tariff troubles in
Congress since then, has there been talk
worth while of a "competitive tariff."
But from this time forth, the country
is going to have this phrase dinned
Into Its ears. It is going to be served
up to It for breakfast, lunch, and dinner
'and any other incidental meals.
"Competitive" Hew Phrase.
Leader Oscar Underwood, chairman
of the Ways and Means, is the man who
is responsible for this new expression.
He may not have been the first man
to use it, but he is the first man to give
it wide currency. Mr. Underwood has
been talking much of late about a "com
petitive tariff." It has broken Into thp
dispatches, into the tariff hearings be
fore the Ways and Means, into all the
current arguments in the newspapers
and journals on" the subject, and it looks
as if it had come to stay.
Mr. Underwood may get wholesale
criticism for his advocacy of a '-'competitive
tariff," but the linguists and
lexicographers will at least be Inclined
to give him credit for having enriched
the lore of tariff controversy, which
has been raging up and down the land
since the time the republic was found
ed and some time before that.
The doctrine Mr. Underwood Is ad
vancing Is that he wants, not a pro
hibitive tariff, but a competitive tariff,
and wants it "all along the line."
Opposition Is Warm.
The opponents of tariff revision have
been in no way appeased by the new
expression. Instead, it has added new
fuel to the flame. The American Pro
tective Tariff League has turned loose
all Its arguments against Underwood
and the "competitive tariff." The league
Is Insisting that there Is menace lo
American Institutions in such a tariff,
that the tariff must behlgh enough to
hold the home market for the home pro
ducer, and shut out forlgn goods, and
that the tariff must he Iiish enough to
admit real foreign competition, then
disaster to domestic concerns will fol
low. Moreover, the question is being raised
Just how much competition Mr. Under
wood would allow, and what percentage"
of foreign goods he wouldlei-ln Where
would he draw -the line. Is the Inter
rogatory. Thcso are not easy questions
to answer, and up to date It seems ap
parent that while Introduction of a new
phrase in tariff making adds to the gay
ety of the nation so far as concerns
discussion. It dots not really help set
tle the ancient controversy.
War on Flour Scouted
State Department officials today
denied fear of a tariff war with Ar
gentine as a result of the advantage
which the United States enjoys In
shipping flour to Brazil. No repre
sentations hii ben made to the
department and the differential,
which is given us the cause of the
apprehended trouble, has been In ex
istence for many years and has not
been changed recently.
However, the trade of thls country
with Argentine !s so large as to
awaken Interest In any rumor of dis
content. The United States sold
jr.0,000.000 worth or manufactured
goods In that South American country
Little credence l given the report
that Argentina will withdraw from
the Pan-American unicn unless the
