Is Unique Affair.
-"ThJ5"Kree-day cabinet meeting is
Colng to bo a unique affair. Old
timers in Washington have been
scratching their heads and 'trying to
recall a similar Instance of the presi
dent taking all the members of his
official family under the roof of the
White House for a three or four
days' stay, but they say that this is
tho first time of which they have
found anyrecord. .
The president is going to be
cramped for room in entertaining his
eight guests, but by doubling up two
of them he will be ablo to make a go
of it. Secretary Norton, who has
been designated as "room clerk" by
the president, declined to say what
assignments he had made. Life in
tho White House for the next three
days is going to bo pretty sharply
regulated'. Tho members of tho
"house party" aro all expected to be
at tho breakfast table by 8:30 in tho

the cabinet-makers will again gather
In the dining room to renew their
discussions at luncheon. Each after
noonuthe president will try to get ex

horseback, and ,lt is likely that he
will take some members of his offi

Secretary Meyer are the only two
golf players in tho cabinet.
Dinner will be served at 7:30 and
the' evenings will be given over to
further discussion of the problems
confronting tho administration. The

OF GREWSOME TRUNK
Nurse Implicates Doctor In San
San Francisco, Sept 23. That Dr.
Charles Grant caused the death of
Eva Swan, tho young stenographer,
whose mutilated body was crowded
Into a trunk last April and burled un
der the basement of a lonely cottage
in the Mission district, is alleged In
statements by the police.
Marie Messerschmldt, a trained
nurse, who for a year has acted aa
Dr. Grant's assistant and office at
tendant, made a confession to the
police. To the detectives she said:
"Eva Swan had made two visits
to Dr. Grant's office before she camo
for the operation. The doctor put
her on an operating table, but before
he was through he became greatly
alarmed oyer her condition. Her
heart fall 1, and in spite of every
thing he could do the girl died 10
days later. I nursed her In the doc
tor's hospital. Young Paul Parker
was a frequent caller on her and she
told me he was responsible for her
"Dr. Grnnt was in a state of great
alarm and decided that the body must
be removed promptly, and he swore
both me and Willie Soak, the office
boy, to secrecy, declaring that we
were all in one boat. Then he
fetched a trunk and began sawing
the bones of the dead girl's legs so
he could put her, in the trunk. He
went at this work as though he was
butchering an animal, and It made
such Impression on me that I faint
ed. When I came to the doctor was
chaffing my hands. I told him I
couldn't help him as I couldn't stand
tho sight, so he told me to go home
and brace up. I don't know whenthe
body was removed. All I know li
that when I came back two days
later the trunk was gone"

Atlee Pomerene, candidate for lieu
tenant governor, sroke for an hour
on business methods in public life.
The principal points brought out In
his speech were a denial that the
Democratic platform charges the Re
publican party with shielding and de
fending grafters, but that It did say
that tho Republican officeholders
shielded and defended grafters; that
Ohio might be willing to trust Har
ding alone, but not Harding in com
panionship with Cox; that the people
of Ohio can not afford now to make
a change; that privilege does not
grant favors to the public, but ex
tracts them from the public.
Timothy Hogan of Wellston, candi
date for attorney general, defined a
progressive Republican as one who
loves Democratic principles and
wantB to adopt them. He appealed
for votes in the following language:
"The need of a legal adviser in
full sympathy with the administra
tion Is most apparent, and I trust
that the re-election of Governor Har
mon will also insure the election of
all his associates on the state ticket."
Among other things Mr. Hogan
said: "What can wo oxpect of Ohio,
where Republican insurgency Is ram
jant, with a stnnd-pat platform and
n hitched-tlght candidate for gover
nor and a hltchod-tightcr candidate
for United States senator?
"Our opponents insist that graft is
not a party question. This does not
mn well f.om thoso who offered
their protection to tho gratters two
years ago and who would bo silent
now were they not driven from un
der cover by Governor Harmon."
