TexaHii Mentioned for Cabinet.
New York. N. T, Nov 7 Cabinet
makers are busy conjuring with
names of those who will share with
Wilson in shaping the policy of the
Necessarily this is purely gossip, but
the cabinet builders are none the less
active in pointing out the persons and
the elements available as cabinet ma-
One of the available elements em
braces those who were conspicuous
party figures at the Baltimore con
tention, including speaker Clark,
chairman Underwood, of the ways ana
means committee; WiHiam J. Bryan,
Got. Foss, of Massachusetts, Gov. Har
mon, of Ohio, and others.
It is generally assumed, however,
that speaker Clark and chairman Un
derwood would prefer to continue their
work in congress, especially now that
the legislative program on the tariff
and other questions is likely to meet
with fewer obstacles.
As to Mr Bryan, one of ttoDemo
rratic senators was quoted during tne
campaign as definitely assigning Mr.
Brytin to a cabinet place in case o f
Wilson's election, although the latter
stated that no consideration had been
give a to the personnel of the cabinet
None the less speculation is active as
10 whether the Nebraskan will have a
portfolio . . . ,
Another eleirent from which cabi
net material is being suggested, em
braces those who have been promi
nently Identified with the Wilson cam
paign, notablv chairman McCombs, of
the Democratic natinal committee:
representatives Burlespn afcd Henry, of
A.doo and a number of others who bore
the brunt of the conflict at Baltimore
and during the campaign.
St 11 another available Element is
made up or pronrinent partj figures in
the various states who were not con
spicuously identified with the recent
national convention, while another in- j
eludes some of the veterans of the
last Democratic administration
Outside of these elements from
which cabinets can be constructed,
many foresee the entry of a consider
able new element in public affairs
made up of men like" Mr Wilson who
have been identified with collegiate,
educational and economic questions.
Kxpeet Special Session.
Democrats here consider it very like-
1v that Mr. Wilson will call a special
session of the new congress soon after
his inauguration as president in March.
Barlesea Han S Shew.
Washington, D C, Jfov 7 Poli
ticians here, who are already busy mak
ing up Wilson's cabinet, sav that con
gressman Burleson will stand no show
to be appointed secretary of agricul
ture in the new president's official fam
ily after March 4 next. These prophets
declare that as Burleson is from a cat
tle countrv, he would naturally be a
friend to oleomargarine, and to put
him at the head of the agricultural de
partment, would also stir up a storm
among dairy interests of hhe country. It
is not believed here that Dr. Harvey
Wiley has the slightest chance for a
cabinet position In the first place he
is a Republican and in the second place,
i' is not believed Wilson will want a
man like Wiley, who continually stirred
up trouble as chief of the bureau of
chemistrv, and who probably would
keep the department of agriculture in
a tumult. Congressman Burleson is be
lieved here to have a better chance of
becoming secretary of the interior than
secretary of agriculture.
LABOR MAY FORM
Question Is TJp for DlculeH at An

Rochester, N. T. Nov. 7. One of the
questions that vll be discussed In each
of the five departments of the Ameri

Its sessions here today, is whether it
would be advisable for workers to or
ganize a political party that will em
body their desire for legislation.
The American Federation of Labor
has never taken part in political cam
paigns and has a rule forbidding po
litical discussions in its meetings.

is to go on. What methods CoL Roose- ,
velt will adopt are unknown even fo '
Of course the fight will go on," he
said with an air of finality. "In the
end, the cause must triumph."
Close friends of CoL Roosevelt said
he was not suprised at governor Wil

new party would be able to win its ;

made, hifc friends said, had pleased

TAFT SUGGESTS NEW
President Declares Intention to Prac
tice Law at Cincinnati Secret Ser
vice Men Now GBard AVIlson.
Columbus, O , Nov 7 Defeated, but
far from discouraged, president Taft
already has formed plans for holding
together and strengthening the Repub
lican party. '
The plans are indefinite, but he said
to friends that the party will con
tinue to exist, that it will be as active
as in the past and that there Is no
reason to believe that its chances of
future success were not excellent.
So far as the president's plan is con
cerned, he hopes to see organised a
notional Remiblican club" entirely
apart from the Republican national
committee, which shall cherish the
principles of the party and be a source
of political activity not only during
election years but at all times.
To a suggestion that he might be the
Republican nominee in 1SW the presi
dent replied with a smile, but made
no comment. He laughingly repeated
his intention of returning to Cincinnati
and the practice of law.
The president is convinced that the
task of president-elect Wilson will not
be easy. He said that he earnestly
hoped Mr Wilson would not call an
extra session of congress to revise the
tariff. He wishes, he said, to see the
present prosperity continue as long as
possible. Mr. Taft declared Mr. Wil
son would face a congress made up to
a large extent of untried men who
have come to believe in "histrionic pub
licity." and who believe that to show
their faith with the people they must
at times be "Insurgents" and oppose
the program of the leaders.
The president was particularly in
terested in any tariff revision program
and laughed when he said he was
eagerly awaiting the Democratic ef
forts to reduce the schedules of that
"iniquitous Payne-Aldrlch law"
Asked if he did not consider Mr Wil
in more conservative than radical.
! the president told the following story
aoout senor zjiae, aeau ui m iuivi
party in Cuba:
"Zias was campaigning once," said
the president, "and was accused of
being a conservative. 'I am not a con
servative,' said Zias, I am a radicaL I
must speak as a radical on the plat
form to keep my followers, but in
office I am not a radical.' "
The president left Columbus for
Washington, where he expects to stay
with but few trips away from the
white house until March 4.
He announced that he will not visit
the Panama canal during the Christ
mas holidays as he had planned.
Richard I Lervis, one of the six
foot secret 'service men who has
guarded president Taft since he was
elected four years ago, was notified
to proceed to Princeton. He will be
joined by other secret service men
Washington, D C. Nov. 7. President
Haft returned to Washington at 9:46
today The private car of governor
Hadley, of Missouri, was attached to
tbe president's train at Harrisburg, and
he came to Washington with the presi
dent and will confer with him.
President Taft found a grist of rou
tine upon his return to Washington
today and some special things to look
i Most important of all the work wait-
I mg for the president is his annual mes-
, sage to congress. This probably will
be sent as one document instead of in
sections as last year

'Princeton, N. J, Nov 7. Gov. Wil
son looked eagerly today toward a big
basket of mail filled to overflowing. It
appeared he would continue his custom
of opening all mail himself. He likes
to do it
"You know that I can recognize the
typewriters of some of my personal
friends," he mused. "I don't know just
how I do it. I guess I will need a
tonic to go through that pile though."
He began slowly to open some of the

that the presidency should be con

rather than one of pronouncing him

"We will sing a Te Deum' of Thanks,

It is reported that the great strong

and that the Turkish army stationed
in the city has been withdrawn. Which
direction the retreating army is sup
posed to have taken was not mentioned
in the report, but if it Is true thath&

with one of the armies investing the
fortress whichever way they take.
