AKE ITS PLACE
Not Likely That Wilson's
Wishes, as to Inaugural Ball,
Will Be Opposed.
DECISION IS POSTPONED
President-Elect Opposes His?
torical Function Because
of Expense.
Trenton. N. J., January 17.?Presi?
dent-elect Wilson declined to say to-day
what ceremony he would favor us a
substitute lor the inaugural hall. It
had been suggested to the President?
elect that a popular iccoption at the
Capitol might be ai ranged.
He said he would not comment fur?
ther on the subject until he learned
what William Corcoran Kustis. chair?
man of the inauguration committee,
thought of the Governors suggestion
to eliminate tho ball from the feel Ivities.
The proposal to abolish the bail was
contained in a letter of the President?
elect sent to Mr. Kustis yesterday.
Oovernor Wilson's decision in the
? matter of the ball was reached after he
'had been talking with Mrs. lYIIana.
. who, it is known, is very much opposed
to display of all kinds It has been the
belief of friends of the Wilson family
that she would express opposition to this
historic function, although the Presi?
dent-elect himself has expressed opposi?
tion to it on account of the expense.
Inquired as to Cost.
The President-elect made careful in
'quiry concerning the inaugural ball,
and was told that it cost the govern?
ment approximately $25.ono. This is
due to the enforced Idleness of clerks
in the pension building, which has to
' be cleared out for the function, and
incidentals which cannot he uvoided.
There is much speculation now as to
what other, if any. recommendations
Governor Wilson will make for a cur?
tailment of the inaugural formalities.
When ho passed through Washington
recently he asked Mr. Eustis to have
the ceremonies simple as possible. His
request for omission of the ball is his
first utterance on the subject since It
would not surprise the New .fersey
friends of the Governor if he asked to
have practically all the display elim?
inated.
Derision Postponed.
Washington. January 17?William
K. Kustis, cbairman of the inaugural :
j committee, held an informal conference ;
: with members of the committee to-day j
over President-elect Wilsons letter
? suggesting that the committee consider |
the feasibility of omitting the usual
inauguial ball. He said the committee
would do all possible to meet the wishes
of Mr. Wilson.
The President-elect's letter had not
reached the committee except through
'the press, and formal action was de?
ferred until next week. In the mean?
time the committee will confer with Mr.
; Wilson A hearing was held on a House
resolution to have the ball in the Pen?
sion Building A hearing on a similar
resolution in the Senate was deferred in
view of Mr Wilson s letter.
Senate Committee at Standst,II.
No action was taken by the Senate
committee on public buildings and
grounds to-day, as had been expected.
: on the inaugural committee's resolution
granaug the use of the Pension Building
j for the inaugural ball. The indecision
I of tbo inaugural committee as to what
j action it will take, in view of tho sug?
gestion of President-elect Wilson that
j the ball be omitted this year, caused
postponement of action.
Aldis B. Browne, member of the '
general inaugural committee; Thomas |
Nelson Page, chairman of the reception
committee, and Arthur Peter, chairman
lot the reviewing stands committee, ap?
peared before the committee when it;
' was called to order by Chairman |
Sutherland. Mr. Browne called atten-?i
; tion to the letter of Governor Wilson. !
, as published in tho newspapers, sug- :
gesting tbe omission of the inaugural:
? ball this year, and added that the
Inaugural committee had not yet re- 1
ceived the letter.
"L'ntil the committee receives I he I
letter and de'ermine* what action shall :
be taken upon it." Mr. Browne said. I
we ask tha' action by this committee i
j be postponed."
Reception May he Substituted.
Mr. Page added tha' in view of the
'suggestion <<f Governor Wilson, n j
! might be necessary to substitute a!
I reception at the Capitol or adopt some
[Otaee plan than the holding of an in?
augural ball in tbe Pension Build-'
ling. He united with Mr. Browne in '
jSeking that tho Senat? committee
delay action until the inaugural com?
mittee could present some definite
proposition.
On motion of Senator Culberson the
committee agreed to the request i "hair
man Sutherland, it was understood, is
to call a meeting of the Senate c ommit- ;
tee when the inaugural committee has
? definite proposition to submit.

Philadelphia. January 17 ?President
Taft addressed three largely attended
dinners here to night He came to tbia
city from Washington as the guest of
the Clover Club. In his address the
?'resident referred in u facetious man
nar to hia upproaching "polotical de?
mise. ' and expressed the hope that the
administration of his successor would
be a prosperous one.
After his spec.-It at the Clover Club
the President ascended to the roof of
tho hotel where ho addressed a gather?
ing of physicians at the annual dinner
of tho Medical Club Later he spoke
at the dinner of the Poor Kicbard Club
in tho same hotel.
As usual, tho President was oare
fullv guarded by city detectives as
well as secret si r vn c men and u man
who aroused suspicion by his efforts
to gain his attention was taken Into
'?tody At .iiv Hall he was found
to he i>n inventor who wished to : n' >" "
iiewj the President, and was dischuikco
after being permitted to write a mes
j sage t<, Mr. 'faft.
President Taft, at the Clover Club
'dinner, wished good link to Mr Wil
i son und his coming term in the White
! House, predicted prosperity for the
i nation under ordinary circumstances,
but gave warning that in his opinion
the iieople at the polls in November
decided against radicalism as well as
against conservatism, and advised the
! Democrats to abide by their verdic t and
t stick to the middle of the road "
"1 have every good will for the in?
coming administration," said the Pres
idem ''I sincerely hope that the course
; taken by it will bring you prosperity
will not interfere with that prosperity
I which, but for some obstruction, is
?certainly ? oming to this country"
The President's word of warning
followed a smiling review of the No?
vember result He said the Democratic
party found itself a rletor between the
1 Hepubiican party, deemed conserva?
tive, arid the Progressive party, called
radical.
"It would be well for the incoming
administration to preserve that posi?
tion and not try to 'out-Herod Herod," "
said the President.
I cannot be convinced that the
American people have reached the

devoted to the praise of tbo virtuous

reads- 'dive her of the fruit of her
