ca-se of his acucn in depriving them j
of what they have grown to look upon
as a prerogative. i I
Mr. Wilson doe? not seem to be con-'
cernd, how ever, at what society 'here ;
thinks. He saw no reason why he and
the secretary of the navy each should ,
have a yacht .the expenses of which
are paid by the government. He could i
not understand why there should he
haif a dozn aid6 on duty at the White ,
house. He appreciated that, in for- ,
e'gn countries, even those in which
the monarch ial form of government
obtains, aids never appear in uniform
save upon strictly special ocrasiong.
The indignation of social Washing
ton, though, cannot compare with that :
of office seekers who are debarred
from the privilege of seeing the presi
dent, or the politicians of the gum
shoe type, who bitterly resent the j
registration of their names.
Among the former are men who Im
periled their political careers by up
porting Mr. Wilson for the nomination
during the pre-convention campaign.
These men find themselveg refused
adrniEsion to the president's office,
while congressmen from their states
who fought for Champ Clark, Oscar
W. Underwood, and Jadson Harmon
are promptly received by Mr. Wilson,
and are able to present to him per
sonally and d'rectlv the names and
merits of their candidates.
Most of the riubiic mn having busi
ness at the White houe, aud practic
ally all the politicians, rntensely dis
like the proposition that a "police blot
ter" is to be kept by the secretary to
It frequently happens that a man's
business is revealed by the publication
of hia name. His enemies are put on
guard and set to work at once to cir
cumvent him. This type prefers the
back door method ai,d abfolute secre
cy. . Pree'd'-nt Wilson has no sympathy
with their point of view. He b'liev-H
it best for all concerned that th
'names of bis caMerii should b! known
ro the public. The ki.lf- c its both
1 ways and a man whop'- nam" Is pub
lished knows whether or not bis f-ne-ciies
have seen the president the r.' ct
Mr. Wilson believes this policy -. 1
work to the general good, because .
will be able to get both sidea of
matter under consideration, and t..
will be better Qualified to Jude.
