When Major "Ilardinff will actually

wish of Major Judson that his transfer
to the Panama Canal be made before
President Taft leaves office, and a ten-
ta;ie date of February 2S was decided
upon, subject, however, to the necessi
ties of the duties in which Major Hard
Ins is now engaged. The War Depart
ment has sent a cablegram to the new
Engineer Commissioner asking when he
" can reach Washington.
If he Is engaged In work that will d)-
laylay his departure from the Canal
Zone, it is possible that the actual
change ot Commissioners will not occur
until nearly the close of Major Judson's
term, March 15.
Major Harding was decided upon by
President Taft as a successor of Major
judson several weeks ago. when the-ap
polntment of Commissioner Rudolph and
capt. James K. ujster as Commission

The decision of President Taft was
then announced. The formal order of

Chicago Congressman Has Much
Opposition, But None Seems
to Be Able to Lead.
Congressman "Jim" Mann of Chicago,
leader of the House Republicans. Is go
ing to be honored with the minority
leadership in the Sixty-third Congress.
So runs the talks In House Republi
can circles as the tinal session of the
Sixty-second Congress draws to a close.
It Is true there is considerable opposi
tion to Mann. But he Is apparently
going to be chosen leader once more for
And, In the strange metamorphoses
of politics. If It should come about
that the House in 19H became Repub
lican, this might mean that Mann
would be the Speaker of the Sixty
fourth Congress. Hence the leadership
Is of nomean Importance.
The opposition to Mann has been
heard from a good deal lately. A lot
of growling and grumbling over his
leadership has been audible. Strange
to say, it has come to a considerable
extent from the Old Guard Republicans.
They are complaining that Mann has
.been too lenient to the progressive Re
publicans and that he has been too much
engrossed with details of legislation to
take a large perspective.
As for the progressive Republicans,
they would be glad to supplant Mann
with a progressive Republican, like
Ienroot of Wisconsin. But they per
ceive they cannot command the votes.
If they are to have an Old Guard Re
publican for leader, they generally pre
Under the circumstances, Mann will
probably be retained. Such opposition
to mm as mere is, rinds it difficult to
unite on a. strong man against him.
What makes eMann a power In the
House Is his indefatigable industry.
No bill comes along that Mann does not
know about. He burns the midnight oil
looking up bills and reading committee
Is Ferret of Senate.
If there is a Joker contained in a
piece of proposed legislation he is sure
to know about it and ferret it out as
surely as the trained hound trails down
Besides, Mann, though one of the
props of the old Cannon machine, has
had the sense to learn that if the
-House Republicans get anywhere they
have got to get out of the ancient ruts
of Cannonism. The result Is that he is
strong with the moderate men of both
factions of Republicans.
As to Mann's ability to make trouble
for the Democrats and everybody else
to" whom he offers opposition, the "entire
House Is agreed. He is the prince or
troublemakers at the south end of the

of the plaintiff.
