San Francisco, Feb. 12. "Here am
I, waiting at the wharf, waiting at
the wharf ," etc. It has become the
favorite tune of Winfred T. Denison,
the newly appointed secretary of the
interior for the Philippines. At seven
successive sailings Denison sat pa
ently on the dock, waiting for the
.;ews that his appointment had been
confirmed by the senate.
Now, for the eighth time, he has
missed his boat again. News came
to him over the wire that the senate
had confirmed his nomination. He
engaged rooms on the liner Chiyo
Maru, which was about to sail. Then
he went to the" dock and waited
waited for official notification. While
the last late passengers were rush
ing aboard he waited. While the
lingering visitors were shoo'd ashore
he waited. While the donkey en
gines on deck hauled in the hawsers
he waited. As the great engines
turned over at the signal, "Slow
speed astern," he was still waiting!
And he's waiting yet.
