PRINCETON. X. .7.. Jan. VA.ln a
speech to the presidential electors
of New Jersey, delivered at a
banquet in Trenton, just prior to
the casting of the electoral voto
for Wilson and Marshall. President-elect
Wilson today made it plain that ho in
tends to surround himself as president
with progressives and only progressives.
This is th0 first time the president
elect has delivered himself on this sub
ject. The reactionaries will therefore
find little solace In his administration of
tho next four years. The speech was
wildly cheered and applauded by guests,
who Included also tho Democrat ie legis
lators, members of the state committee
and . state ..officials. The baiujuct took
place at thc Hotel Sterling.
Governor Wilson's speech follows:
Some men have been slow to ob
serve, but the majority of uo have
seen that the people of tho United
Slates havo taken a definite oholcc.
I happen to be one of tho Instru
ments through whom that choice Is
expressed, but I am for tho time,
and that choice Is for the long fu
ture. Tho peoplo of the United
States have turned their faces In a

States and to act. so far as my
choice determines, the action only
through tho instrumentality or per
sons who also represent that choice
I havo no liberty In tho matter. I
havo given bonds. My eacred honor
is involved and nothing moro could

be acting as JL partisan when 1 pick
out progressives and only prosros

sentative of the people of this great
country. And, therefore, it is n mat

of silk with tin salts so as
to give them weight and
body, although causing thorn to rot
and break quickly, domestic manufac
turers and importers havo becu able
to dress the wives and daughters of
American working inon with silk
This admission was- drawn from
Iloroco J3. Cheney of Cheney &
Brother, silk manufacturers of South
Manchester, Conn., representing beforo
tho ways and rncaD.s committee today
tho Silk Association of America, which
has protested against tho reduction of
duties on cheaper grades of silk. Mr.
Chcucy said that it was a' general
praotieo in this country and that im
portations of such silks wcro heavy.
Considers Sale a Fraud.
"Jt is dynamited silk, so-called,''
commented Chairman Underwood. "I
consider its sale a fraud, on the public.
Unless you gontlcmcn can mako somo
recommendations for the jiropor restric
tion of tho importation and manufac
ture of such silk you may got a
drastic law against tho importation
with heavy penalties for its sale."
Mr. Cheney said tho silks so treated
wore usually imprinted silks; although
tho scheme has been applied to printed
"Why do you dynamite si lk '3" de
manded Ollie James, of the committee.
"It makes things go up, I suppose,"
said Chcnoy. with a laugh.
"What things go up?'-' asked James
sarcastically, "the goods or the pocket
books of tho consumers?"
Chairman Underwood Do you not
think this is a fraud on the public?
Keeps Prices Down.
"When earned to tho extent lo de
stroy tho life of tho silk it is a fraud,"
replied Cheney. "Only by this mcaus
can we hold tho prico down to a point
whero tho wives and daughters of tho
working man can purchase."
Underwood I know something about
it. I bought an umbrella aud it split
at. -tho creases and fell to pieces soon.
Wouldn't a high tax and a penalty
keeping it out bo a good thing? Sup
pose wb put on a lax of $10 a yard, a
heavy, fine for violations and imprison
mcntV "That would bo unfair," urged
Cheney. "When thcio io over 10 per
cent, of wash it is a fraud. Many per
sons now wear silks treated in this
way. Our association . is having a
chemist investigate this matter, but
they havo found it difficult to deter
mine tho porcoutngo of chemicals in it.
It cannot bo dono at tho custom-house,
except whero tho percentage is very
largo. We hope you may mako a sug
gestion." Underwood's Warning.
"You had bettor mako a recommen
dation," warned Underwood, "or you
may get a very drastic law. Won't a
weaver using one pound of silk with
this process bring out thrco pounds?"
"They might by retaining the gum
in the silk and using tin salts aud
other things. But I canuot f?ay whether
the uec of a small porccntago of tin
salts destroys tho lifo of thu t-ilk,"
protested Cheney. "Besides I don't
think that women want it lo last so

lasted twenty years. That is not wanted

OCDEN", Jan. 13. "While tho associates
of the late financier cannot be induced
to mako a definite statement on the sub
ject, there are Indications that tho plafis
of David Eccles for one of the largest

to be carried out by his heirs and those
Interested in tho various Eccles enter

new bank had been arranged by Mr.
Eccles prior to his sudden death is sup

lt was the Intention of Mr. Eccles to
establish the bank in Ogdcn. assembling
all of tho Eccles stocks for this pur

tho institution in the proposed office
building at Twenty-third street and

Ono of tho Rtrongeat indications that
the plan has not been dropped can be
found In the fact that the original plana
for tho banking. apartment have not been

Judge Rolnpp did not bclicvo that it

the Salt Lako delegation is not rcprc-

And Mr. Morris of Washington coun-

benignly whoa ho remarked that per

No Precedent in Utah.
Thero is no precedent, to far as the !H

committocs is tho speaker's chief
sourco of power. Without it thu oflicc
of speaker is not tho position of high

The Democrats, of course, were uot
alone in the little joko that was per
