THE DOOR OF HIS
Always to Remain Open
to the Public.
SAYS MAN ELECTED PRESIDENT
"In to Everybody" and Does
n't Believe in Side Whis
is plain max of run people
Princeton, N. J., Nov. 1C. President-elect
Woodrow Wilson pro
poses to keep the door to his pri
vate omce In the White House nl
wavg open and accessible to tho
public, he announced to-day.
Governor Wilson said he had de
cided to maintain as far as possible
the "open door" policy which he
inaugurated at Trenton. During
his term as Governor he has insist
ed that the door to his private of
fice never be closed whlle ho is in
In his campaign speeches for the
Presidency he declared that he had i
always felt If the door to his offlco
was closed his "connection with the
people of New Jersey" was being
severed. The Governor was stand
ing In the same door way In the
State hoiiFo In Trenton to-day.
"Are you going to keep the open
door at Washington, too?" he was
"I hope so," he replied. "I don't
know what the arrangements are in
the White House, but I Intend to
do so as far as possible."
His Idea Is that the Executive of
a State or a nation should have no J
"locked door" conference or trans-
act any business In hl8 private of-
Ulce that the public could not ac-1
tually see if they cared to. I
"When I first took office as Gov-
ernor," he said,"I was surprised at
the number of peope who wanted
to talk to me behind the back of
their hands and in whispers."
The Governor has never been in
the Executive office In Washington,
but one of tho correspondents drew
for him a diagram of its interior,
indicating that there were two
doors to the 'e't of the entrance,
which, If left open, would carry out
the Idea of giving the nubile a. view i
nf whn t tnikimr tn h Prn,i,tnnt I
In hls office. The future President
will depend upon the Secret Service
men, of course, to keep out cranks,
and will have a system of appoint
ments, but the custom as observed
in Trenton has been that between
appointments the Governor" Is "In
. It was a loy of congratulations,
but the Governor also met a num
ber of commissioners, made some
minor appointments and delivered
two speeches. He addressed a dele
gation that came from Charlotte,
N. C, to Invite him to attend on
May 20 next the anniversary of the
celebration of the signing of tho
Mecklenburg Declaration of Inde
pendence. Thirty prominent citi
zens of the town, soveral of whom
made urgent speeches, appealed to
him to come.
"You must remember, however,"
paid tho President-elect In his
speech, "that I haven't often been
President of the United States, and,
therefore, I don't know what l8 In
store for me. I haven't gotten
close enough to the conscience of
that office to see my way clear and
Bee what my liberty will be to de
tach mjself from my duties.
"There Ib n question which a
Kood many newspaper men here,
for instance, would like to have mo
xpress definitely. There may be
an extra (session of Congress upon
which a good deal depends. Of
course, If there Is to be an extra
Hesslon it will cover the 20th of
May ln all probability.
"Therefore, I cannot now either
accept or decline the Invitation,
which drnws me so strongly, but I
do' feel that I owe It to my public
duty to wait. What I am about to
do now Is to go off on a vacation
and forget a good many things
that have happened in order to
have a clearer brain for what will

delivered his first extended speech,
since he was elected to tho Presi
dency. "The whole basis of society Is in
dividual responsibility," said the
Governor. "If you cannot hold the
individual responsible for what ho
does, then you cannotpunlsh, hlm,
and if society is', M.pjfuUble for
what he does, 'tjxerjsr ls no means
that I 'know of punishing society. I
"Tho great argument you will
not suspect m0 of touching upon a J
party question against special
privilege Is simply the nrgument
tbat It gives one set of people an
advantago that others do not enjoy,
and therefore Is not a basis of mor
tal equality or of equality of oppor
tunity. So that society Is constant
ly studying Its moral responsibility.
"For, after all, moralB sadly need
buttressing In all of us. We are
very much more trustworthy when
wo aro amongst good people than
when We are among bad people. A
bad example In dreadfully conta
gious, even with the best of us. And
It would not do for any of us to
live too long In the environment
from which some of these poor girls
have been rescued."
The Governor returned to Prince

"I SHJTJO KILL"
Speaking of His Attack on
ALIENISTS WATCH PRISONER
Who Appears to Have Little
Concern for the Court
SURE AC1AINST A THIItD TKIIM
Milwaukee, Wis.. Nov. 12. Five
Milwaukee alienists, to act as a Part
of his Court, in determining the
mental condition of Colonel Roose
velt's assailant, were appointed by
Judge A. C. Backus to-day, nfter
John Schrank had pleaded guilty;
of an attempt to murder the former
The Court's action was the first
such practice ln Wisconsin criminal
procedure. Under a recent statute
the Court was given this power.
James G. Flanders, a leading
Milwaukee attorney, appointed to
represent Schrank In the sanity in
quisition, had two brief talks with
his client, but neither gave Indica
tion of what Schrank would decide
Asked If Theodore Roosevelt
would b0 summoned by Schrank,)
Attorney Flanders said It was not
likely, as there probably was little
light Colonel Roosevelt could throw
on the present mental conditions of
of his assailant.
Fewer than 150 persons listened
to the proceedings and watched tho
small, compact form of Schrank as
he stepped slowly to the bar and
entered his plea. Of this number
20 detectives and half a score of
Deputy Sheriffs kept unecessary,
but vigilant, watch on all persons
In the room not known to them.
The District Attorney read the
complaint In which Schrank was
accused of having made an assault
upon the person of "one Theodore
Roosevelt with a deadly weapon
and with Intent then and there to
kill and slay the said Theodoro
"How do you plead to this
charge?" the Prosecutor asked the
prisoner standing at hl8 elbow.
"Why, guilty, Mr. Zabel," ro
plled the prisoner, ln a confused
way, as though not sure he was fol
lowing the proper procedure.
"You have heard the complaint,"
interposed Judge Backus In B loud
voice; "you understand that In It
you are charged with having at
tempted to murder Theodore Roose
velt. Do you plead guilty or not
"I did not mean to kill a citizen,
Judge," began Schrank, and the
ciowd In the courtroom gave first
audible evidence of Its interest In
"I shot Theodore Roosevelt be
cause he was a menace to the coun
try. Ho should not have a third
term. It Is bad that a man should
have n third term. I did not want
him to have one. I shot htm as a
warning that men must not try to
have more than two terms as Pres
ident. "I shot Theodore Roosevelt to
kill him. I think all men trying to
keep themselves In office should bo
killed; they become dangerous. I
did not do ft because he was R can
didate of the Progressive party,
either, gentlemen," he concluded.
"All right," Interrupted the
Court, taking from the District At
torney the plea for a Sanity Com
mission for the defendant. He read
It hastily while the Prosecutor ex
plained It8 purport.
"The man lB insane, ,!" said tho
Dlstilct Attorney. "It would be
wrong to sentence him for a crime
If he was mentally unsound, Just
because he was willing to plead
Schrank appeared little concern
ed. "Now, I am not concerned at the
outcome. My crime Is a political
crime more than a cripie against
humanity, and I gues8 that with all
the political crime that has taken
place In the last few . year8 they
won't be verv hard on me. Howev
er, if they do give It to me hard,
whv I pnps I can take my medi
cine," said Schrank.

QUIT WORKING AT OXCE
Chicago. Nov. IB. Judge New

terday, Imposed tho sentence of in
determinate idleness on Joseph
Glrsch, who had been arrested on
complaint of his wife.
Joseph had a good job, is able

but all of thl8 disturbs the other
'wi80 happy household, and he must
quit. The court entered the strange
decree after hearing the story of
"I can't stand Joe's conduct any
longer," Mrs. Glrsch testified.
"You'll Just have to put him under

"Do you mean that he is over
working himself?" queried tho
"No; I mean work doesn't agree
with him," the woman continued.
"He's got to be made to stop It if
there is to be any peace in our
house. Joe's a molder. He's Just
crazy about molding, but when he
gets paid off, he buy8 liquor and
then comes home and beats me.
I've got plenty of money nnd can
support both him and myself, but I
can't stand It when he works. Just

THE UXIT RULE SHOULD
NOW BE ABOLISHED
Let every Democrat gird himself
for the fight to overthrow the unit
rule. The Baltimore platform de
clares that national committeemen
should commence to serve as soon
as elected thls puts an end to the
hold-over system under which an
old national committee could or
ganize a new convention. Now let
the unit rule be abolished. It has
served to strengthen the power of

unit rule Mr. Murphy, for Instance,
by securing forty-six or more of
the ninety votes, was able to use
the remaining votes as his person

Bloom was sentenced to

Jail, by the verdict of th0 Jury re
turned into Circuit Court to-day,
charged with burning the Green
Giver Department store several
The feature of the trial was the
testimony of Ed Hodges, a Daviess
county man, who made a confession
some ttme ago, accusing Uloom of
setting the store afire. Hodges tes
tified that he bad talked over the
plans for burning the store with
Bloom and that the defendant pre
pared the materials in his presence
for setting the building on fire.
The prosecution attempted to
prove the ownership of the store
and to show the ovents leading up
to the opening of the store. It then
brought out the ownership of the
store and finally developed tho fact
that Bloom was ln Morganfleld on
the night of the fire. Hodges was
then put on the stand to tell of
the plans laid for the burning of
The defendant placed witnesses
on the stand in an attempt to prove
that Bloom was Innocent an dthat
Hodges was the guilty party.

were occupied by the Green River
