Pennsylvania Senator Accepts Port
folio of State-President-Elect
Augusta, Ga., Dec. 18.-William R.
Taft, president-elect of the United
States, announced the appointment of
United States Senator Philander C.
Knox of Pennsylvania as.secretary of
State in his cabinet.
The announcement followed the re
eeipt by Mr. Taft of a telegram,
which came late this afternoon, con
veving the information from Mr.
Knox t6at he would accept the pre
miership of the Taft cabinet. Mr.
Taft without delay made the an
nouncement that the matter was set
In giving the details,of the negoti
ations, he said that the offer was made
to Mr. Knox last Sunday morning in
New York. That since the offer he.
had not heard from Mr. Knox until
the telegram he received today. After
a consultation with Secretary Root
in Washington last Saturday after
noon Mr. Taft said he made an effort
to-see the Pennsylvania senator there,
but was informed that he was in
New York to attend tfie dinner of the
Pennsylvania society. He wired Mr.
Knox to see him at the Henry W.
Taft residence Sunday morning. Th-e
appointment was kept, Mr. Knox con
eluding- his visit in time for Judge
Taft to attend the morning church
service, but remaining at the Taft re
sidence until after Judge* Taft had
gone to church.
Mr. Taft Gratified.
"I feel that I am to be congratu
lated in securing the services of Sen
ator Knox in my cabinet,'" said Judge
Taft in making the announeemeht
and making the statement with th*a
understanding that he was to be
quoted. "In selecting a secretary of
State I wanted first a great lawyer
and second a man who would fill the
public eye, not only here but abroad,
as a man who stands out preeminent
ly a great American.
"Mr. Knox was a great attorney
general, he was a candidate for the
presidency and he is recognized in
the senate and elsewhere as one of
the great lawyers of that body.'
Judge Taft also feels that from a
political viewpoint the selection ot
Mr. Knox is.most happy. He explain
ed .that there was often a feeling that
the &ate of Pennsylvania, with its
assured Republican majority, often
was slighted in the matter of recog
nition in the high councils of the par
ty. That this will not be the case in
the. next administration was indicat
ed by the annoneement by Mr. Taft
that hre should invite Senator Knox to
eoime to Augusta that he might con
sult him freely with reference to fill
ing other places in his cabinet. In
fact, he said, he felt the need of such
advice as hre should be able to obtain
from Mr. Knox regarding not tonly
the cabinet, but manty matters preli
*minary to the beginning of his ad
~that Mr. Knox's influende will be
potent was freely admitted by Mr.
The hesitation of Senator Knox to
make a more speedy decision is in
ter'preted as due to his desire to ar
range with duie regard for the inter
esits of the party and his State for,
relinquishing his seat in the senate.
Mr. Taft evidenced grati 'eation at
the decision which had b en reached.
Mr. Taft said tonight that he had
not determined definitely on any one
for the attorney general's place in
Causes of Possibilities.
Washington, Dec. 18.-It has been
known .here 'for several days that
George W. Wickerham of New York
has been under consideration by the
president-elect for the post of attor,.
ney general. 'Among others consid
ered by Mr. Taft was Senator Knox,
who is to be secretary of State. Sen
ator Knox has declined to discuss the
questions in any way, but it is under

fully and argued. thati a man of suffi
cient capabilities in the legal profen
Ssion for the attorney generalship
would not be found unless taken from
the list of those who have had some
experience as corporation lawyers.
It is generally believed here that an
Ohio man will be selected for secre
tary of the treasury and until recent
ly it was generally accepted that Rep
resentative Burton was the choice of
Mr. Taft. Some doubt has been creat
ed within the last few days as to
whether he would take the place in the
event of his failure of election to the
senate to succeed Senator Foraker.
