WILL PREPARE WIS ADDRESS
Princeton, N. J., Jan. 5. President-elect
Wilson to-night made It
clear that nobody In the United
States knew, as yet, who was going
' to be In his Cabinet, or what would
e the program he .would suggest In
-Congress. He said ho had not of
iered a single Cabinet portfolio to
anyone and had Us yet. reached no
conclusions as to plans for the ex
tra session of Congress.
Mr. Wilson stated (hat, while he
had canvassed a variety of subjects
and had talked over many names
Avlth Democratic leaders, he had
not given a definite intimation in
any direction either as to his selec
tions or what his course with re
spect to legislation would be. Ho
indicated, however, that he expect
ed the extra session would not be
devoted exclusively to tariff mak
ing, and said he would, in a special
message, specify some of the sub
jects upon which ho would like to
see legislation enacted.
The President-elect admitted that
he was finding tho task of Cabinet
making very difficult. He said he
would delay any announcements un
til he could name his entire Cabi
net. "I donlt Uke .to .make scattered.
announcements, no saia, -ana u
may be that I will not announce the
Cabinet until the last minute.
At times I hear something about a
man whom I had not considered,
that makes me prick up my ears
and want to know more about him.
'The field of choice is constantly
It was suggested to Mr. Wilson
that if he delayed his announce
ments until tho last minute some of
the. men might find -themselves em
barrassed for time In winding up
their business affairs.
"Oh, I probably shall choose men
who are footloose," said the Gover
nor, "and then, even if they should
need time to wind up their affairs,
they could be sworn .in March 4 and
spend a little time on It after that."
He indicated" that he, intended to
occupy as much of his time as possi
ble between now and March 4 In
canvassing tho Cabinet field. He
said his mind still was open,, and
that as soon as ho reached decis
ions as tt the men he wished, he
'probably would make all the offers

was asked If ho intended to deliver
his Inaugural address extempora
neousjy. "I think I'll prepare the
Inaugural' address," he said, "as
those addresses are more like docu
ments than speeches.'
The only speech tho Governor has
prepared in 'advance since his nomi
nation at Baltimore was his speech
of-acceptance, as he does not like
to read speeches.
With respect to appointments In
the foreign service Mr. Wilson let
it bo known that he had not yet
'given thorn, definite consideration.

MASON COUNTY FARMER
CAUGHT IN OWN TRAP
Augusta, Ky., Jan. 4. Walter L.
Powers, living on the edge of Brack
en county, a son of Mr. and Mrs.
Theodore Powers, of Mason county,
met with a peculiar accident while
doing some chores around his barn.
His hand was caught fn a large
steel trap that had been set to catch
rats. He could not make any one
hear him, being a considerable dis
tance from a house, and finally
managing to get his knife from his
pocket, proceeded to amputate his
thumb, cutting to the bone, but was
unable to cut through the bone. He
was held by tho trap for some time,
but finally' got himself in a position
whereby he could put his foot on
the trap, thus releasing his hand.
"YDU DEAR, SWEET THING!"
AND KISSED EACH OTHER
Female Senator Greets Female
Representative in Colo
Denver, Colo., Jan. 3. "You
dear, sweet thing," said Mrs. Agnes
Riddle, tliQ',rwpman representative
from th'o First District, as she
planted a rousing smack on the lips
of Senator Helen Ring Robinson,
"Happy New Year.''
"Thanks, a Happy New Year to
'you;-saidSenator "Robinson, as she
returned the warm greeting of Rep
resentative Riddle with a kiss.
This scene was enacted yesterday
in the Senate Chamber in the pres
ence of men colleagues of the wo
men legislators, and everybody
knew that the Nineteenth General
Assembly of Colorado had opened
in a manner entirely distinct from
all previous sessions.
When Mrs. Robinson took her
seat in the upper branch of'the
Legislature at noon, she was estab
lishing a precedent of being the
first woman Senator to hold office
in Colorado and the first In all tho
United States, but she has no inten
tion of shattering customs.
She has announced that her col
leagues maw smoke In her presence
to their hearts' content, and also
that they may indulge In all the
privileges, such as chewing, &c.
Mrs. Robinson has been officially
dubbed Mrs. Senator Robinson for
her debut as, a lawmaker.

In Owensboro Will "Stand Pat"
On Sale T. H. Balmain
The regular quarterly meeting of
the American Society of Equity for
this district was held at the city
hall in Owensboro Thursday after
noon, with a splendid representa
tion of the four counties in the dis
trict. Tho meeting was held behind
closed doors, and only members in
good standing were allowed inside
Tho most important action taken
was the unanimous vote of the
members to "stand pat" on the
scalo of prices that they have fixed
and to hold their tobacco for thoae
prices. The committee declined to
state what prices they had fixed. on
the tobacco, but it is understood
that they are holding for prices of
$10 down to $6 for the leaf and
lugs and $3 for the trash.
Tho annual election of officers re
sulted as follows: T. H. Balmain,
of Ohio county, was elected presi
dent; Emison Shaw, of Daviess
county, vice president, and S. B,

No pigs! Positively "no live pigs
accepted for parcels post delivery.
T. E. Jones, of tho railway mall ser
vice refused to accept one at the l"
cdl union station, although It was
stamped and waiting at the tialu.
"No, madam," said the railwny
mall cloik. "No live animals or
fowls arc accepted -jnly bees
"But this pig weighs only ten
pounds, and It goes to a very dear
friend of mine It is the gentlest
thing in tho world. It wouldu t
bite, kick or anything and I dot:'i

clerk,0 standing in the door of the
car, while the woman with her
crated parcel held it up to him.
"It's a nice pig, I'll -admit, but we
can not accept pigs."
. "I saw in the paper where a lady
mailed a dog, and it went through
the post-office like a post-card."
"Yes, but sho mailed it and got
away before the postmaster coul.l
stop her. I suppose ho couldn't do
anything but deliver It, Fince it was
mailed and stamped, and he couldn't
push It back on the sender. But he
didn't have to. Tho law says no llvo
things except queen bees and
that's all there Is to It."
"Well, what's tho matter w'th
me pushing my pig through the
door of your car while you'ro not
looking? You wouldn't have to say
anything about tho matter, but Just
go ahead and deliver the nackago."
Jones was willing to be acommo

lt,d the Owensboro woman he
.couldn t take any chance. He was
not afraid the pig would squeal on
him, but he simply didn't want to
do any shady business or be bother
ed with pigs rooting around his oth

packages, chewing up some of the
letters maybe, or making its bed on
others when the time- came to drop
them at way stations.
"No," he said again. "Can't

In a different package and then we
will take It."

Princeton, N. J Jan. 2. President-elect

Now Year's Day. Ho went for a
short walk in the forenoon and dur-
Ing the' afternoon received a few
calls from his Princeton friends.

"I hadn't thought out the meth

would bo an added convenience to
members of Congress to knpw Just
how soon after tho closing of the
present session or Congress thoy
would have to reaesemblo for an

one of tho very first acts of his ad

"Congress will b? in session until

there will not bo much of'anjnter-
