PAUL MORTON FOR XAI'V Moody Succeeds Kno.r, and Met calf Takes Cortehjou'.'i Place. fFROM THE TRIBVN'E BURBAf.I Washington, Jane 'M — President Roosevelt an nounced the following Cabinet appolntmfn's to day: «'||.l,JA\| II MOODY, of MMHUU-huartt*. Attorney tirti^rwl. PAt i. MORTON, of llTinoi*. Si««Tet«r» «f t»n» X»tT. VUTOU H. MKT< *I.F. of California. Secretary of (tmmrTrf and I^ilior. The resignations of Attorney General Knnx and Secretary Cortelyou have be»»n accepted, to take effect on July 1, si him their successors' will assume the duties of then* offices. The newly appointed Cabinet officers are re garded as exceptiorally able men. srreassj tn «• poutive abutty and thoroughly well equipped to. 011 the places far which they have be<»n selected. As a member of the Cabinet, Secretary Moody has already demonstrated his usefulness, and his transfer and retention are generally approved. The appointment of I'i'.ul Morton and Victor H. Metealf to be members of th<» Cabinet received hearty commendation to-day from all the men constituting the Chief Magistrate's present coun cil. •'I do not believe the President could have found a better man," said Secretary Moody. when be learned of the formal acceptance of his miitfasfti ■1 an mighty plai Morton has asrreed to take 1 It." said Attorney General Knox "He is a splen did selection for the place. And I am quite as pleased that the Department of Commerce and Labor Is to fall into such competent hands." The congratulations the Cabinet members of fered the President were almost as warm on hts wise selection of new advisers as they were on the report of his magnificent victory at Chicago. In spite of all stories to th* contrary, there has never been any indecision on the part of. the President in considering the two appolnt me-nts. He never had any Idea of offering the navy portfolio to Mr. Met calf or the Department of Commerce and Labor to Mr. Morton. Neither, It may be said with equal authority, did he re ceive anything resembll.ip a declination from the man who Is to become the head of the Navy Department. He learnod from Mr. Metcalf more than a week ago that he would accept the place to b« vacated by Mr. Cortelyou. but did not care to announce It officially until he could s;ive th*» news of Mr. Morton's acceptance to th« public at the same tlm*. The President also decided to defer the announcement of Mr. Cor telyou'B successor until the national committee hud ratified his wtshea by making him the Ken eral of the campaign force*. Th.it Mr. Morton will lose nothing by enter ing President Roosevelt's Cabinet, In spite of the fact that he will relinquish for the time be ing a post that is probably more remunerative, few will doubt It in understood that the* man agement of the Santa FA Railroad system will keep the place of second rice-president open for him until the end of his term in th* Cabinet. Even should the road undergo a change In man agetneni In the msaaj time, it Is not at all likely that the new directors, whoever they may be. would n|ls9 the opportunity of securing the ser- j vices f^in ex-Cabinet Minister for their official ] roster.

Permit me to add that I do not think I could have mads up my mind to acquiesce, however reluctantly, in your leaving your pres ent position bad 1 not also realized the services you could render tan the Senate. There Is nothing that I can say which will in any way add to the reputation which you have won. and no tribute I can ray you will approach in value that already paid you by the hearty admiration and respect of your fellow citizens. let for my own satisfaction I wish to Lear testimony to the invaluable work that you nave done. During your whole tlrn« of ser vice yon have had no real holiday. You have never really rested from your exhausting labor. To your high professional qualifications you have added unflagging zeal and an entire tndlf feramce to every consideration save the honor and Interest of the people at large. Many great and able men have preceded you in the office you hold, I 'it there is none among them whose administration has Ii ft so deep a. mark for good upon the country's development! Under you It has been literally true that the mightiest and the bumbled in thp land have alike had it brought home to them tha* each was sure of the law's protection while ho did right, and thai neither .■■ ul«] nope to defy the law if he dM wrong. In hal you have done you have given proof not merely of the profound learning of the jurist, but of the bold initiative and wide giasp of the statesman.
