EXECUTIVE GIVES CABINET
. GREAT PATRONAGE POWER
Office seekers will not be permitted to
sees'President Wilson to press their pleas un
less he himself invites them. As his first offi
cial act the President laid down a rule this
morning which will free him from most of
the burdens connected with patronage arid
announced at the same time his intention to
deal with appointments through the heads
of the departments.
, The following statement "was issued at
the White House:
"The President fegrets that he is obliged
to announce that he deems it his duty to de
cline to see applicants for office in person,
except when he himself invitesthe jnie'ryjew.

knows from his experience as gov

to him to make innumerable appoint
ments) that the greatest part both of hi 5
time and of Tils energy will be spent
In personal Interviews with candidates
unless he sets an Invariable rule In the
matter. It Is his Intention to deal with
appointments through the heads of the
several executive departments."
Power to Cabinet

will be largely "handled through the de
partments, department heads otherwise

President's advisers Use responsibility
of disposing of patronage, and will make
them larger political powers than they
would otherwise be if the President did
not repose in them such manifest con
The announcement made this morning,
laying down a clean cut rule. Is taken
as another bit of evidence that Presi
dent Wilson has some very definite ideas
about his duties and that he proposes
to ''handle the office with all the
authority which a President may exert.
Taft Was a Victim.
HU predecessor in office was a con
stant victim of office seekers who took
up much of his time, and kept the Presi
dent in his office many hours when he
really had little Interest in the business
of his callers.
The statement was at once recognized
by the newspapermen at the White
House as a sane effort to conserve to

Iff PHTHISIS TESTS
Action" of New York Medical
Board Causes Much Suffer-
ing Among Victims.
NEW YORK. JIarch 5. it seemed cer
tain today that the efforts of certain
New Tork physicians to prevent Dr.
Friederich F. Frtedmann, the German
pnjsician, rrom demonstrating the effl -
cacy of his purported remedy for tuber
culosis, will prove successful. The ac
tion of the medical advisory board of
the department of health in declaring
against the physician treating pitlents
in any of the hospitals contro.led by
the city, was accepted by Dr Frlcd
mann as ending hope of his working In
a local hospital. Because of this action
it Is exceedingly doubtful whether there
will be any tests held in this city.
Friends of the German savant expect
him to go to some other State where
he will be encouraged instead of dis
couraged. The doctor? who acted adversely on
the Frledmann cure include J. D. Bry
ant. Abraham Jacob!. A. A. Smith John
W. Brannan. Walter B. James. Simon
Flexner. and Prof. T. M Prudcn.
Oppose Friedmann's Secrecy.
Members present at the meeting said
today that the reason for the ac'.on was
the alleged secretlvcness of Dr Fil d
mann and his refusal to furnlsi the
local medical authorities data on his i
treatment other than a typewritten,
statement of cures he said that he had

F. - HOUSTwir,
GIVEN TO SENATE
Republicans Say There Will Be
No Opposition to Nomina
tions of New President.
President Wilson sent the list of his
appointments to the Cabinet to the Sen;
attt at 2 o'clock this afternoon. The
names had previously been announced
at the White House. The appointment
on reaching the Senate were considered
by that body in executive session.
The Cabinet is as' follows:
William J. Bryan, of Nebraska, Sec
retary of Slate.
William Glbbs McAdoo, of New
York. Secrotary of 'the Treasury.
Llndley M. Garrison, ot new jcrwy,
Secretary of War.
James Clark MeReynolds, of Tennes
see. Attorney General.
Albert S. Burleson, of Texas. Post
Josephus Daniels, of North Carolina,
Secretary of the Navy.
Franklin Knight Lane, of California,
Sfcwturv of tho Interior.
David Franklin Houston, of Mis
souri. Secretary of Agriculture.
William C. Rodfleld. of New York.
Secretary of Commerce.
William Bauchop Wilson, of Penn
sylvania Secretary of Labor.
"Republican leaders generally express
ed the belief there would be no concert
ed opposition among the Republicans to
confirmation of the Wilson Cabinet. In
spite of the long filibuster of the Demo
crats last session, against the appoint
ments of President Taft, the Republi
can leaders do not Intend to embarrass
President Wilson by seeking to block
tha confirmation of his Cabinet mem
bers. Reports were current that Senator La
Follete might object to the confirmation
of James MeReynolds. as Attomev Gen
eral. This report was not verified. .
Unless unexpected opposition arises,
the Senate Is likely to confirm the new
Cabinet In the course of the afternoon.

the head of his Cabinet table today, he
sat tn.the chair used by Colonel Rooso

The llrst members -of the Senate to
call on President "Wilson were Senators
Smith, Martin. Lodge and Root, who
came to inform the President that the'
Senate was In session and ready to re
ceive his nominations.
The four Senators were Dro en

while the two Republicans came in leis

The Executive offices were besieged
by batteries of cameras during the en
