Well Be Kept At Home; Do We Nczd
Harding Shows Official
Aides Are Subject To
Change Without Notice.
President-Elect Said To Be
Showng Political Strategy
In His Selections.
ASHTKGTON. D. C, Jan. 11.
Twlxt Marlon and WasUagtea
runs the great political high
way of the nation and many a change
haa come during the last week. Soma
of the early cabinet probabilities have
fallen by the wayside. Some of the
early leglalattve enthusiasm haa
been sidetracked, and the hard and
serious - business of readjusting the
nation's economic affairs with a
group of able executives has crme to
be looked upon by president-elect
Harding as a transcendent responsi
bility. No longer do the former comrades
of senator Harding at Washington
regard the man at Marion as one who
can be twisted and pulled lu -any di
rection at wtu to satiety political
cravings or Individual whims. Tbe
burdens of state rest heavily upon
the president-elect and tha members
of congress who have returned here
from Marion after long talks with
him speak of the earnestness with
which the next president Is tackling
the preliminaries ot his Job.
Hughes Only Fixture.
All Washington has learned during
the week of. the upset in tbe cabinet
slate, and today only one man is a
fixture, possibly two. The first is
Charles Rvans Hughes, who is already
arrangl'jg his affairs for the ac
ceptance of the portfolio of secretary
of state. The other Is Harry Dangb
erty. who can be attorney general if
he wants to be.
In a general sense, nobody else has
a cabinet promise from Mr. Harding
that cannot be revoked. Indeed, sen
ator Harding has adopted a policy
which the wiseacres here say is an
astute piece of personal strategy
coupled with years' of political acu
men. tWhen Mr. Harding talked with
some of the celebrities Who have been
mentioned for cabinet positions, he
said to each something Ilka) this:
"Of course, eabraet slates are like
time tables, they are subject ta
change without notice, aad Just about
the time one haa fixed some geo
graphical considerations eater Into
another part and a shift moat he
made. All things being equal. If
things do shape themselves right,
will you be In a position to go into
tbe cabinet""
News Peddled Onlekly.
To some men that might appear as
a definite offer of a cabinet port
folio, sufficiently certain to go home
and tell wife and Intimate fiienda.
