BRYAN IH CABINET
PARTY LEADERS BELIEVE HE
WILL BE SECRETARY
MAY HAVE A PRIVATE "TIP"
If Ncbraskan Docs Accept the Port
folio, They Say, It Means Wilson
Will Go to Limit In FightlnQ for
By GEORGE CLINTON. '
Wellington.--Tin" Democrats in.
Washington sincerely believe that Wil
liam Jennings Bryan will be the next
secretary of state. Thu Democrats '
may bo wrone. In their reckoning, but
Hryan for Uio first secretaryship" 1b
tho direct expression of belief of those
Democrats in congress prominent
iiough to be addressed nmong those
who can bo admitted without tho pass
word into the party's council cham
bers. It has been said in dispatches prior
to this that Mr. Wilson of necessity
must ask Mr. Hryan to be his secre
tary or state. The Nobrnsknn is rec
ognized even by those Democrats who
do not agreo with lilm as tho most
prominent and influential man in their
party today, unless, of course, Hm;
president-elect bo excepted. It never
has been said prior to this with any
definiteness that the Democratic lead
ers really believed that Mr. Hryan
would accept "the first portfolio," but
now the current of Democratic opin
ion sets in strongly toward the con
viction that he will be in the cabinet.
Tho Democratic leaders admit that
they have no definite word from Mr.
Hryan himself on the subject of hla I
acceptance or declination of an offer I
of the post of secretary of state, but
tliey say that they do not need di
rect word to make them certain that
he will succeed Philander Chase Knox, j
.Most of tho Democratic leaders have ,
seen Mr. Wilson, and is it not possi- '
ble that he has been talking to them j
more freely than he has to the repre- I
sentatlves of the press gathered at I
New Jorfaey's capital? The Demo-
crats have heard from somewhere that j
Mr. Bryan is going into tho cabinet. '
May Prefer to Remain Free.
William Jennings Hryan. however, is j
a law unto himself in most matters, j
and he may upset all the calculation
of the other party leaders and prefer
to remain a free lance In politics and
In the newspaper field. Washington
Democratic politicians who have
claims as close students of conditions
say that Mr. Hryan simply is waiting '
before saying his final word on the ,
subject to learn definitely whether I
Mr. Wilson intends as president to
press the light for such legislation as I
Mr. Hryan has urged within tho last I
few years. The Nobrnskan. the close
observers say. also watits to find out j
If Mr. Wilson is willing to go to the
limit in his fighting and not to yield
to tho conservative Democrats' plea '
for compromise. ,
if Mr. Hran finally shall say no
to Mr. Wilson's offer of a cabinet j
place, the reason for his declination !
will bo that he wishes to bo "foot- !
loose to criticise."
In all that has been done by the
Democrats In Washington to make l
harmony in congress possible when I
tile extra session convenes, there has '
been shown consideration for the feel- '
lugs of the conservative Democratic !
senators who are to be shorn of some I
of thoir power and are to be deprived i
of some of their important committee
seats. The conservative ones, it is
said, have promised to follow a course
of action which seemingly the major
ity of the Democrats of tho country
have approved. The progressive Bom
ocrats In congress, however, believe
that Mr. Wilson has made up his mind
to go to the lighting limit of tho pro
gressive field, and they fear that this
may alienate the affections of the con
servatives anil give them an u::cuso
for forgetting their promises
Wilson Has Aggressive Plans.
It is apparent from what the
Democratic leaders say on their
return fiom pilgrimages to Tren
ton, anil also because of the tone
of tho speeches of the president-elect,
that Mr. Wilson when he gets into
olllco wants to strike some blows. The
Idea of the IK-moeiats Is that Mr.
Wilson will be as strenuous in his in
sistence on proper legislation as he
sees It as was Theodore Itoobevelt
and that In lighting temperament. th"
two men are not so far apart as
seouiB to be the general belief.
In his speech In Staunton Mr. Wil
son said that he had his "war paint
on." It Is not necessary, perhaps, tc
jiut on thu trappings of war in order
to attack the tariff schedules, bill
there are other matters which will
come before congress which will sc
divide the sentiment of the members
of the Democratic party, especialb
in the senate, that Mr. Wilton will
need all tho weapons which his high
oilice will give him to enable him to
overcome the opposition, unless ol
course. In advance there Is a general
laying down of arms In the presence
of the president's determination tc
carry on tho war.
Will Try to Put Some In Jail.
All through the last national cam
palgn, and the state campaigns intc
which national matters frequently en'
tered, tho complaint of the Demo
oratlc Epeakers was that no trust mag
nates who hud worked evil to the
people and had produced condition!
which bulwarked their wrong doing
had been sent to prison. They talked
about fines easily paid by the corpora
tion heads and about dissolution
which did nothing but Increase the
value of tho stock of tho concerns In
volved. "Put some of these follows
lo jail," wns tho demand of tho Demo
cratic speakers, and soon tho at
tempt will bo made to "put somebody
It la not yet known who is to bo
Mr. Wilson's nttornoy general, but
whoever ho Is to bo ho will find work
nhead. Upon tho next attorney gen
eral will depend largely the futtiro of
the Democratic party. If he shall suc
ceed In sending to Leavenworth or to
Atlanta, or to some other federal
prison somo of tho men who Imvo
violated the federal laws and have
gained millions thereby, the Demo
crats say he will do more perhaps to
bring the people to a mind that tho
Democracy is the right party in tho
right plncc than any other cabinet
officer can do. no matter how energet
ically ho performs the duties of his
The Incoming attorney general will
find ponding several trust prosecu
tions of u major nnture. Naturally It
Is to be supposed that ho will take
them up and push them under the
laws as they exist. The United States
Stool Corporation case hardly can bo
completed before Mr. Wilson takes of
llce. Then tlnye are tho International
Harvester company's suit and the'
New Haven railroad case. It can be
taken for granted that other trust
prosecution cases will be befnro the
public eye not long after Mr. Wilson's
attorney general takes oilice. No one
pretends to believe that nil of tho
combinations of big business which
are open to attack on legal grounds
have been attacked.
Filipinos to Walt.
It. seems to be assured that if the
bill Introduced by Representative
William A. Jones of Virginia" to
give qualified independence in gov
ernment to the Filipinos for a
period of eight years passes the
house of representatives at this ses
sion, It will bo killed In tho senate.
The Jones bill has been reported fa
vorably by the committee which pass
ed upon it, and it is now on the cal
endar or the house waiting a vote.
There has been a marked change in
tho attitude of some of the Demo
cratic leaders recently toward tho
question of the wisdom of the pass
ago of the Jones measure.
It is certain that the bill, if it
does reach a vote at the present ses
sion, will be passed by a largo ma
jority in the house. The senate Is
Republican, and It probably will nega
tive the measure. At the next ses
sion, with a Democratic senate, it is
probable the bill would go through,
but, as has been said, there are somo
indications that the Democratic lead
ers are becoming afraid of tho bill,
and it is possible that if it is defeat
ed by the senate at this session, it will
not he allowed to come up in the
house at the extra session.
Since the year 11)00 Democratic na
tional platforms have declared for the
recognition or Philippine independ
ence under an American protectorate.
The party, therefore, Is committed to
tho measure, and it naturally is ex
pected that an attempt will he made
to pass it as soon as the Democratic
party comes into full power in the gov
eminent. The trouble seems to be
that some or the leaders after hav
ing read the reports of government of
llcials who are intimately acquainted
with conditions in the Philippines, ap
pear to have doubts as to the real
ability of the Filipinos at tho present
time to govern themselves, even un
der the limitations of the partial inde
pendence which the Jones bill would
give them Tor the next eight years.
All Favor Ultimate Freedom.
As far as the Washington Inquirer
can learn, nearly all tho members of
congress, regardless of party, believe
in ultimate liberty for the Filipino.
Tho Republicans, following the exam
ple of President Taft, who once was
governor of the Islands, seem to be
lieve that Uncle Sam's eastern wards
will not be ripe for freedom for many
seasons to come. Not even tho ex
treme conservatives, men who have
been called imperialists, will say one
word against the final freeing of tbo
islands from American control. The
controversy in congress therefore, re
lates wholly to tin date when It will
bo wise to write a Declaration of In
dependence for tho Little Drown
It must not bo understood from
what has been written that tho Demo
crats i- congress as a body havo re
ceded from thoir position in regard
to Philippine Independence. It Jb sim
ply a case of fear on tho pnrt of some
of tile leaders that too much haste
may have been made in providing for
qunliiied independence, and that it
would be better to wait until the
American system of education lias
done more for tho Filipino before tak
ing definite action looking to giving
him his political liberty.
President Taft said somo time ago
that it would bo 10 years before the
Filipinos would bo ready for com
plete l:.dependenco. Some other stu
dents 'of conditions In the islands say
that 'SO years ought to sufllco to put
tho i' lands on a self-governing basis.
Government officials wno havo
served in the Philippines, and whoso
duty It Is to keep In touch with tho
conditions there, have put down In
black and white homo figures and
some supposed factB which possibly
may bo responsible for the crowing
fear of somo of the Democrats that It
may not be wise Just yet to give the
qualified form proposed for somo years
to come. It Is asserted that there aro
only about 11,000 Filipinos w 10 ca-. bo
put into tho fairly well educated class.
There are 8,000,000 people in tho is
lands, and so it Is said that tho pro
posed Filipino republic, if establish
ed, would havo only a comparatively
email field of competent men to draw
from for the purpose of keeping tho
Islands well governed.
