efforts to end the war are making
no progress, and the European press Is

Irreconcilable antagonisms will arise
over the allocation of Turkish terri?

large part of Albania. Including vba
Adriatic ports of Purasso. Ailezzto and
San Giovanni dl Medua. According to
the Servian Premier's statement to tiie

partition of European Turkey, leaving
the fate of Constantinople to the de?

According to reports current in Ber?

divide Albania between Servia am*

would be supported by Germany, guar?

absolutely defeated. He regards the
reverses sustained as unfortunate, bat

as to the electoral choice of California

the counting of ballots in several

That Illinois was safely in the Wil?

Democratic ranks, but with a plurality
so slender as to be almost negligible

On the strength of incomplete re?
turns as to the popular vote for Wil?
son. Roosevelt and Taft, the estimate
waa made to-night that Governor Wil?
son would not have a majority of all
votes east, in many States the popular
rote has been only roughly estimated
thus far.- but the reports Indicate that
the combined vote of Roosevelt and
Taft will be approximately l.OOe.000
more than the vote for Governor Wil?
The figures will be materially
changed by the final count, but it is
expected the proportion for each can?
didate will net vary greatly. The pre- |
llmlnaxy count gives Wilson approxl- j

dent-Elect Wood row Wilson ha* not
decided upon the personnel of his Cabi?

opeh on the subject for a long time
before he takes otBoe. He manifestly
was concerned to-day about certain
speculations emanating from Prince?
ton with respect to the probable make?
up of his Cabinet. To pot an end. If
possible, to all gossip about Cabinet
appointments, he issued the following
"Such speculations are perfectly
fruitless, i mean to keep my mind
entirely open with regard to appoint?
ments of the first consequence until a
final announcement is possible. It will
be perfectly useless to resort to me for
co rroboration of any report, because
I shall have absolutely nothing to an?

the least authority that is not made
over my own signature. These are
matters which must be determined by

There la every reason to believe that!
Wood row Wilson, both aa presidential1
nominee aad President-elect, has not
i discussed the framing of a Cabinet
I with anybody, but will not make any
: final decision until after he maps out
j bis own coarse mt action with regard
i to his administration. From his an?
nounced intention of being the ''bast
listener in the United States" for a
few monttha it is probable that until
he baa talked with party leaders and
taken counsel with people all over the
country be will not let his mind deal
specifically wrth appointments.
Hta public Duty.
The Presldent-eleot said to-night
that he considered the time between his
election and his Inauguration a period
in which he should listen very care?
fully to the Ideals of men enlightened
and informed on national questions,
and that It was "a public duty" for
him to do so.
The President-elect was confronted
to-night with reports about his pro?
posed vacation. He said any definite
announcement that he was going to
the Bermudas was not authorised. I
"For the very reason that I am going
away to rest." he added, "I will hava
no announcement of my plana ta make
until the day before I start." He said
if he did take a sea trip he certainly
would not go on a private yacht, but
would go as any other person would
>n a regular steamer. He la anxious
for a vacation, and it is likely be will
get away within a fortnight.
Governor Wilson had a busy time
with his correspondence and telegrema,
to-day. Callers came In a steady pro?
cession. In spite of the rain aad muddy
roads. President Edwin A. Alderman,
of ?he University of Virginia, aad]
Dean Richard Dabney. of the same In?
stitution, paid a visit of compliment.
Peyton Cochran and Colonel Armi

came to Invite him to visit the little
town again. They told him they were;
arranging; for "a birthplace Jubilee" tor |
him. He promised to come, and they
reft It to him to select a convenient

Washington, November 7.?State?

that they will expect representation
on nonpartisan government boards,
commissions, etc., has lsd to an exami?
nation here of the laws and prece?
dents bearing on such appointments.
This shows, it is declared, that the
lawmakers. In creating nonpartisan
boards and commissions,, made no pro?
vision (or selection of members from
minority parties. ConsequenUy the;
general rule haa been merely to pro- j
hibit more than a majority of thej
members of these boards and commis- I
I sions being selected from one party,
nothing being said from what party or
parties the minority shall be chosen.]
In accordance with this President
Wilson would be legally free <c most
cases to select minority members from
any of the minority parties.
The Hepburn rate law. increasing
the number of members of the Inter?
state Commerce Commission from live
to seven, provided that "nit more than
four commissioners shall be appointed
from the same petty." The law gov?
erning the appointment of three civil
service commissioners provided that
"not more than two of whom shall be
adherents of the same party." Turn
law creating the Board of General Ap?
praisers at New York provides that
"not more than five of whom shall bo

It Is generally recognized that the
