TAFT GIVES OUT ULTIMATUM
Too Much Newspaper Talk May
Exclude Man From Cabinet.
"Washington. The decision of President-elect
Taft to refiain f 10111 making
public the names of the peisons he has
selected to be members of his cabinet,
with the exception of Senator Knox and
Frank II. Hitchcock, has had the effect
of greatly inciting gossip.
The only possibility of accurate in
formation transpiring regarding the
seven vacant cabinet positions lies in
the proneness of the friends of some of
the selected persons to discuss the mat
ter. Yet Senator Knox, who has been
aiding the president-elect in this work
of cabinet building, on his return from
Aiigusta Monday rather giiinly hinted
that any candidate who either personal
ly or through his friends betrayed the
confidence of the president-elect might
find that, after all, he was not on the
list when the Anal cabinet is announced,
and that statement may have some ef
fect in restraining cabinet talk bjr peo
ple who are really advised.

Every ono in that high and dry at

became so encrusted with it that I
was alarmed for fear sho would loso
