the interstate commerce commission
to prevent what is called an attempt
by the Fnion Pacific Hallway com-'
pany to monopolize all the traffic'

The action was brought through the
interior department, w hich alleges in j

' nienis were turned over to the Uuiou I

It is th contenlion of the Interior

Washington. Feb. 27. The pleas of
union labor for representation in the
presidents cabinet mag be realized
in the- selection of William B Wilson
of Pennsv Ivania to be secretary of
the newly created department of la

other reliable advices, came to the
political leaders at the capitol todaj
direct irom Trenton.
Representative Wilson has been
endorsed by the American Federation
of Labor, and wns at one time secre
larv of the I nited Mine Workers of

Redfield Highly Regarded.
From the same sources jt was
learned 'hat William c. Redfield oi

l-eing considered was not divulged,
but it is known that the president

New Attorney General.
illiam A Glasgow, Philad phia
lawyer, and Edward Farrar, of New
Orleans, former president of UK
American Far association are said to
be still under the consideration of the
president-elect, but the most reliable
lniormation obtainable today is that
James G McReynoldfl oi New York
will be the new attorney general.
Confirmation comes from every
siae that the president-elect has se
lected William I. Bryan for secretary
of state; William G. McAdoo for sec
retary of treasury; Josephua Daniels
foi secretary of the navy, and Repre
sentative Albert Burleson of Texas,
for postmaster general.
Brsndeis for Secretary of Commerce
The name of Louis I). Brandeis still
is known to be uppermost In Mr Wil
sons mind for secretary of commerce,
as the post now held bj -Mr. Nagel
probably will be called hereafter
1 1 ta said Mr Wilson from the first
war anxious to place a progressive
Republican In his cabinet and the se
lection of Mr Brandeis is said to be
a result of that desire.
Diplomatic Po.-ts
The information as yet vvith respect
to diplomatic posts is meager. It be
came known here today that David R.
Penfield oi Philadelphia and Henry
N Morganthau of New York very
likely would be chosen for ambassa

the native official In charge declined
to allow the party to do so. Mr
Morgan sent his secretary in search
