HAVE BRYAN AND
Report Out That Governor Made
BIG OFFICE FOR COMER?
Rumor, Apparently Authentic, Says
Candidate Told His Friend a Year
Ago Latter Would Be Secretary of
State In Event of Former's Election
By ARTHUR W. DUNN.
Washington, Jan. ?A. Special.
Wore than a year ago, according to
Information bearing marks of authen
ticity, Governor Wilson Bent a friend
to William J. Bryan to say that In
case the governor should be In a posi
tion to offer the place he would like to
have Bryan for secretary of state.
Of course it may be denied, but there
is reason to believe that for a long
time there has been an understanding
between Wilson and Bryan about the
highest placo in the cabinet.
The fact that Governor Wilson does
not discuss either Mr. Bryan or the
position of secretary of state with his
visitors indicates that such is the fact.
Would Waive Place For Friend.
In connection with Mr. Bryan's re
lations to the new administration it is
further reported that ho would waive
his own claims to a cabinet position
If by so doing ho could secure for
Georgo Fred Williams of Massachu
setts, who has for twenty years been
an ardent Bryan admirer, the post of
attorney general. Williams might bo
considered a possibility if it were not
for the fact that he has the letter writ
Last summer ho wrote to R. P. Pet
tigrew, one of Champ Clark's man
ngers, a letter, in which he reviewed
the entire record of Woodrow Wilson
on various labor questions in critical
form. Hundreds of thousands of
copies of this letter were sent broad
cast over the country to influence
workingmen and foreigners to help
Clark beat AVllson. With copies of
that letter everywhere about, it is not
expected that Wilson will make Wil
liams attorney general.
Dining an Old "Bad" Man.
What are those constituents going to
say to members of the house of repre
sentatives who. regardless of party,
have gone forth to give a dinner in
which to glorify that "bad" man,
that "czar," that awful specter with
which the Democrats elected them
selves to power in the house of rep

this movement to honor Cannon are
Democrats, many of them who howl

As n matter of fact, these Demo

Laying aside partisan politics, they
know Cannon to be an honest man, do

ho sees the way. After his thirty
eight years of service in the house no
one can breathe n slander of any kind
against him. IIo has a record of which
lie may well bo proud. And he goes
out of ofllce with the honor and re
spect of most of his associates in both
The enemies of Cannon are found
among those Republicans who could
not agree with him. Old members,
those in authority, have always been
impatient with those men of their par
ty who disregarded party councils and
refused to nccept caucus instruction.
Cannon created an insurgency because
ho could not tolerate the independence
and progressive views of the Murdocks,
the Norrises, tho Lindberghs, the Len
roots, tho Coopers and others who pre
ferred to heed tho voice of their con
stituents rather than to remain "reg
ular" under the house leaders.
A Massachusetts Bill.
Lodge in tho senate and Gardner in
the house, both of Massachusetts, were
conferees on tho immigration bill. So
Massachusetts may claim a large share
of the measure. More than that, it
was a family affair, for Gardner is
Lodge's son-in-law. Both of these men
have always been earnest advocates of
restrictive Immigration. And this is
ono case where Massachusetts and tho

A CHARITABLE WORK
There is a national organization In
this country which distributed nearly
a million new garments to needy
human beings last year and yet so
quietly and unostentatiously was this
great work accomplished that there
are thousands of people who have
never even heard of Tho Needlework
Guild of America. It was organized
In Philadelphia In 1885, and incor
porated in June of 1S9G. It owes its
origin to an English noblewoman
who was fostor-mothor to hundreds
of orphans in an institution which
sho had founded and who conceived
this unique and practical way of
providing 'for her wards. Every
charlta'bly disposed person within
her reach was asked to contribute
two garments a year to help clothe
these needy little ones. In 1885 an
American lady traveling in England
came In touch with this practical
charity and brought the idea home
to this country. Her niece became
the founder of the American organi
zation through influencing a few
of her friends in the work. From
this small 'beginning has sprung the
national body which governs
branches throughout tho whole
United States and is constantly ex
tending its work.
Branches in Thirty-Six States.
Tho Needlework Guild now has
a'bout three hundred and fifty
branches in thirty-six states. Each
hranch controls Its own work, hut
the national 'body is affiliated offi
cially with the American Red Cross
sotaiety and that organization has
agreed to act as a distributing agent
for all the contributions donated by
all of the branches of the Guild for
the special relief work of any great
national disaster. The Guild is also
affiliated with tho General Federa
tion of Women's Clubs and is en
titled to representation in its meet
ings. The object of tho Guild is to col
lect and distribute now garments to
hospitals, homes and other charitable
Institutions, and to extend its use
fulness by the organization of other
branches. Tho garments are collect
ed from the members of the Guild,
the contribution of two new gar
ments each year or a donation of
money no amount specified con
stituting the qualification for mem
bership. While It is considered a
woman's organization, the many men
who belong usually contribute money
instead of garments. There is no
special requirement regarding the
quality of the garments furnished,
other than that they bo new. Pre
ferably they should bo plain, and
there is a greater demand for warm
garments than for thin ones. Arti
cles of fancy lingerie aro of compara
tively little use. Stress Is laid al
ways upon the word, "new," as
there are always many agencies to
handle the partly worn garments.
The Guild by Its charter cannot ac
The effect of new substantial cloth
ing upon a person made suddenly
destitute by sickness or other cause
Is that of moral uplift rather than
pauperization. There are thousands
of people who 'pass each year through
the medical and charitable institu
tions of this country most of whom
aro insufficiently clad and these in
stitutions rarely have the means at
hand to supply that lack. For in
stance, when children are brought to
tho Children s Aid society, it is sel
dom that they have sufficient cloth
ing. More frequently that which
they have is in such condition that
it has to be burned. Hundreds of
consumptives, under outdoor treat
ment, are unable to provide them
selves with the warm clothing essen
tial to their recovery. The majority
of day nurseries require additional
clothing for the little ones in their
care, while the rescue work for men
and women, the Seamen's aid, the
Society for Discharged Prisoners and
numberless other organizations are
in constant need of garments which
their own resources do not supply.
Helps tho Hospitals.
Perhaps the greatest work done by
the Guild is in tho supply of gar
ments to the hospitals. A member
once went to a large and well-cared
for hospital and asked to seo a pa
tient admitted. Presently the sound
of the ambulance hell announced the
coming of a man who had been in
jured In the machinery of a large
factory. Before he was taken into
the ward, he had been prepared for
bed and on the stretcher bearing his
covered form was his hat bearing his
name and tho number of his hed. It
was tho only article of his clothing
which was fit to keep. Yot the man
would have had nothing to wear
when ho was discharged and the hos
pitals had no available means of sup
It does not make any difference
how tho garments are secured by the
members so that they aro now and
suitable. Many of tho sewing clubs
of similar character require the mem
bers to make the articles donated,
but members of the Guild can pur
chase them If preferred, although the
joy of sacrificing one's own leisure
to do work which will give comfort
to some less fortunate human being
is sufficient to make hundreds of
women spend their time In making
garments for the Guild. Tho gener
ous English woman who founded tho
work in that country took for her
rule, "Always have a pieco of Guild
work on hand and at hand." Queen
Mary of England, who was ono of the
strong patronesses of tho organiza
tion, used to make as many as sixty
little crocheted woolen garments
each year. When asked how she
managed to accomplish so much, she
said: "I always have one of the lit
tle petticoats on hand in each of
ray sitting rooms and I take It up
whenever I have a 'few minutes to
Tho Guild has fewer formalities
than most organizations. Tho offi
cers consist of a president, vice
president, secretary and treasurer
of each town branch, under' whom
the directors work. Any ono may
bo a director by becoming responsi
ble for twenty-two now garments
and on cash contribution a year.
That Is, in addition to her two gar
ments, she must eccure ten other
members who will give garments and
one who -will contribute money.
There is an annual collection of
garments, each director securing

GROWING WAYMART BIDS YOU
The hustling little borough of
Wnymart. located on tho Honesdalo
branch of tho Delaware and Hudson
railroad, at the base of the Mooslc
mountains, is growing rapidly.
There Is only ono house vacant In
that village and it Is one of the
best built, nouses, there, too. It con
tains eight rooms and is a store and
dwelling combined. Can be used for
two families. Tho property Is lo

is directly opposite tho postoffice. It

Mrs. A. C. Taintor, Colchester,

tho Fall or early Winter there is the
annual meeting at which the officers
for tho year are elected by the votes
of tho directors and the garments
collected are 'distributed to tho vari
ous organizations or institutons to
which they have been assigned.
Expenses Very Light.
The expenses of the Guild are not
heavy and consist chiefly in station
ery and postage for the secretary's
correspondence, the cost of a room
if ono cannot be obtained free, ex
pressago, wrapping paper, etc., for
sending out 'packages, and the print
ing of the local report if deemed
necessary. There are no salaried of
ficers and the average of one money
contribution in ten is usually about
sufficient to cover these needs. Each
branch is supposed to reserve from
the money collected from the money
members sufficient to defray its own
expenses. It sends the remainder to
the national treasury to be used for
Guild extension and the support of
the national work.
Littlo Girls Help.
It frequently happens that thos.
who have least to give themselves
aro most generous in their efforts.
One poor old lady In a western town
sent twelve little patchwork quilts
for children's beds as their contrib
ution. They represented many hours
of painstaking toil. In a Young
Women s Christian association a di
rector one year secured over three
hundred garments from a group of
young girls who were able to do lit
tle more than support themselves.
The director happened to mention
that there was an orphan asylum in
the city which specially desired eat
ing bibs for tho smaller children.
Acting upon the suggestion, one
young seamstress tolled a good many
evenings making bibs by hemming
squares of cotton cloth that were
furnished her. A semi-circle cut out
at tho top was- bound with tape with
long ends left to tie. She made
twenty-five of these simple little
garments in tho evenings of a hot
Summer, thereby greatly aiding the
matron of the local orphan asylum in
keeping her young charges in order.
Other girls made little sacques of
outing flannel for Infants and small
children some simple littlo frocks
and other garments.
Sometimes a woman charitably
disposed is able to collect enough
garments during her Summer vaca
tion to 'make her a director. Pleas
ant porch parties can be employed in
the making of garments for the poor
if the proper start be given them.
Thero is always a demand for warm
knitted articles and many of these
are easily made at odd moments if
the example of Queen Mary is follow
ed. But, while the desirability of
doing personal work for the poor Is
Indisputable, thero are hundreds of
women who find they havo not time
to put in a single stitch. For these
the ready-made garments sold in
such iprofuslon everywhere are more
easily obtainable, and, whilo tho
more expensive large woolon gar
ments aro In greatest need, the small
est articles of apparel will be readily
accepted. It Is desired, however,
that the garments are all given in
pairs of like quality and size, as
where a single garment is given an
extra one to provide for changing is
almost essontial to its usefulness.
Any woman who lives in a town
where there is no branch of the
Needlework Guild can readily secure
full directions for organizing one by
addressing the national office, which
is located at 1710 Chestnut street,
Philadelphia. Through the Influence
of American women foreign organi
zations having the same purpose
havo been established in Scotland,
Canada and France. Tho French or

Fruit Grower Makes Artificial Winter
to Prevent Orchard Blooming.
What is said to be probably the first
case on record of providing an arti
ficial winter for fruit trees was prac
ticed on the orchard of W. F.
Thomas, between Hagerstown and
Hancock, Md., to-day.
Mr. Thomas, a resident of this
city, owns an orchard of 6000 apple
trees that are four years old. They
are not yet old enough to bear fruit,
but the unseasonable weather has
coaxed out the buds so that there is
danger of the whole lot blossoming.
If they did this and a later frost
should catch them the wood would
be largely killed, so that Mr. Thomas
consulted with the Department of
Agriculture as to tho best way of
discouraging the trees from bloom
ing. Following their advice ho shipped
100 tons of ice to the orchard. This
will be broken up and applied to the,
roots of the trees in the hope of
