According lo General Rumor,
Members of Cabinet Have
Been Selected.
Governor Pushing Corpora

Among Callers
By International News Service.
TRENTON, N. X, Jan. 27. President
elect Wilson Indicated toniglit that his
cabinet, so far as the Influence of any
outside advice can affect It, Is practically
made up. The only thins that remains
for him to do is to talec a pencil and
majjk down tho names and offlcea. Tho
president-elect has said several tlme3
that no one will know his selection until
ho has done this.
Five weeks remain before the inaugu
ration, however, and It Is not likely that
tho pencil will be brought into play until
tho last moment, lie was asked tonight
if 'io could not see his way clear to make
hla cabinet announcements within a short
time. It was suggested, that approxi
mately a month remains beforo bis in
auguration. 1-Tc quickly corrected this
statement. Baying:
"Oh, no. t,vq still have five week's. T
am not yet ready to namo the cabinet
Tho governor aid thai he did not ex
pect to hold any :noro conferences with
national leaders.
"I shall havo to be constantly atten
tive to state buslncfcs now," he said.
"National leaders may come to sco me
but T am not golnpr to plan any confer
ences." Puts in Busy Day.
The governor put in one of lii.i busiest
days today. Arriving from Kobokcn
shortly after 10 o'clock, ho was engaged
In conferences with legislators and other
visitors until after 0 o'clock, when the
legislature held Its night scHalon. To
morrow he will have his annual confer
ence with the legislature as a whole, at
which all pending 3Jid prospective legis
lation will be dlscusned.
The "scvon nlster3," as the govornor's
corporation bills have coins to be known
will be thoroughly discussed and the gov
ernor will impress upon legislators tho
desirability of enacting these into laws
without delay. Tho governor expects that
the bills will be adopted practically unan
imously. Many of the Republicans
will vote for them, especially tho Pro
gressives. Tomorrow afternoon tho gov
ernor will leave for Atlantic City with
tho legislators and thcro a banquet will
be given. T1iIg. the governor soys, will
be a family nffalr, the details of which
arc never given out for publication.
Marquis Calls.
Governor Wilson received today a dis
tinguished visitor in tho person of Mar
quis do la. Vega Tnclan, special repre
sentative and deputy of tho king of
Spain, who Is on his way to San Fran
cisco to select a site for th Spanish ex
hibit In the Panama exposition. Ho
called today to convey to the President
elect King Alfonso's personal messago
of good will and good wishes and his
interest In the exposition at San Fran
cisco. They had planned a idmilar ex
position in Spain tor the samn time and
aro trying now to postpone it until 1916,
in order not to conflict.
"T asked tho marquis if it would be
possible for the king to visit tho United
States," Raid' the pre&ident-clcct, "and
ho raid that the Jaws of Spain made it
impossible, but that the king would en
Joy tho visit if It were possible."
Grangers Visit Governor.
A delegation of the National Grange,
including T. C. Atkinson of "West Vir
ginia, G. O. Ralno of Missouri and Rich
ard Patleo of Now Hampshire, called to
urge tho appointment to th department
of agriculture of men who undertood
and Hympa.tldiM:d with tho work of tho
farmers. Tho list of those in the news
papers aa candidates for the position
was convnased and tho delegates in
dicated the men who would be nccept
able to them.
Tho president-elect denied tho report
from Wnahington that ho Intended to
visit the Philippine) and Ahtnka zr. woll
as Panama.
. "That is a piece of ingenuity and fic
tion," ho said. "Tho men who sent
that dispatch know more about my plajis
than I do myself. My thought does not
extend beyond going to "VTauhlngton and
getting down to buulneifs. Releases from
business I haven't thought of."

a t ASHTiS'GTON. Jan. 27. Protec
tionistg and tariff revisionists
y Ej kept up a running1 fight beforo
the houso ways aud( means
conuntttco today, which was continued
tonijjhl. Tho wool tariff was the issue
and the manufactui'crs presented an al
most unbroken alignment against re
duction of duty on woolon cloth and
ready-mado clothing, though favoring
reduction of tho dut" on raw wool.
It was the most strenuous fight made
at this Bc-ssiou of eougrcss against tho
Democratic plan for revision of tho
duties in tho coming extra session.
"Tour sehedulo never has bcou cut
in tho memory of living men," sug
gested "Representative Palmer of Penn
sylvania, to A. Ir. Stafford of Cleve
land. "Mr. Stafford contended that the
tariff could bo reduced in the event tlio
Democratic party chose to take the re
sponsibility for a possible reduction of
wagos of tho wool mill employees.
Tho witness testified to S per cent cont
dividends from his mill last year and
jRerjTcscntativo Harrison of New York
suggested, that it wna rather unbecom
ing for him in view of tho bit; profits
oi! tho industry to bold out a throat of
wage reduction.
AHvised Caution.
Through William Croklm&n of New
York, its president, the National Asso
ciation of Clothiers declared that whilo
frco wool was desirable, a move to put
wool on tho frco list way too revolu
tionary. He said tho association in
dorsed the proposod Democratic rate of
20 per coat ad valorem on raw wool.
"Frank. P. Bennett of Boston, editor
of the American "Wool aud Cotton Ko
porter, argued for the re-enactment of
tho Wilson law of 1SDJ. This was a
plea for tho cntiTo removal of duties
upou wool and: a reduction of tho tariff
upon woolen good to 50 per cent. The
duty of 33 cents a pound, now assessed
upon scoured wool, had impound a tax
of nearly $1 00,000,000 upon the Ameri
can people, beside hampering manu
facturers, tho witness said.
Joseph D. Holmes of New York, a
woolon export, recommending ad va
lorem and specific duties ou clothing,
an ad valorem duty on wool, witb an
additional duty on clothing to com
pensate for labor and mill coat, con
tended that clothiug would bo no
cheaper if the duty on cloth wore to
moved. Ho said that a suit or ovor
coat containing .$3 worth of cloth
wholesaled at irom $S to 9, and re
tailed at from $12 to $38.
Favored Present Law.
Tho National Association of Manu
facturers, comprising 100 of tho woolen
mills of tho country, through its presi
dent, John P. Wood of Philadelphia,
prosentod a tentative sehedulo of ratos,
but Mr, Wood admitted that tho
schedule was approximately the snme
as the present tariff law.
Tilr. Wood refused to mako any spe
cific recommendation ao to raw wool,
though proposing tho maintcnauco ot
tho present tariff protection on woolou
goods. He pictured "bi problems"
confrontincr the Democrats in attempt
ing to carry out a tariff reduction plan
nud question tho ability oi! tho com
mittee to so classify the different com
modities as to apply a rate that would
exactly fit each kind of wool.
"Thon,'' obsorved Chairman Un
derwood, "we have got to sail out
in tho dark and try to suvo tho pa
tient if wo can."
Patrick McGraw of Pittsburg de
clared that wool on tho skin had in
sufficient tariff protection aud advo
cated a 4 per cent differential between
wool on and off the skin. Ho objected
to the ad valorem basis,
Tho committee showed no signs to
day of changing its toutativo plan
for a rovisod woolen schedule along
the lines of tho Democratic bills or
tho two "previous sessions of this con
gress, which provided for 20 per cont
advalorem on raw wool and from 35
to 50 por cent on cloths, rvady-mado
clothing aud other articles.

a foregone conclusion that the house
