Mr, Wilson has entered upon his final

born of three solid weeks of recreation.

Mr. Wilson added that even the date
or place for an engagement with Wil

No Conclusions On Cabinet.
Mr. Wilson said he thought he would
make most of7 his appointments for
Trenton, as that was an easier place
than Princeton to get In and out of
by train for some of his busy callers.
As to the personnel of his Cabinet, the
President-elect admitted that much of
his mall contained letters commenda
tory of various persons.
"Of course, selections have been run
ning through mv head." he added, "but
1 have formed no conclusions."
Democrats Suspend War and Allow
His Name to Go Through as
U. S .Treasurer.
Carml Thompson, of Ohio, former
secretary to the President, was con
firmed yesterday as Treasurer of the
United States by the Benat. Th war
of the Democrats on confirmations was
suspended long enough to allow the
name uf Thompson to go through. No
opposition was rslsed.
The Democratic plans as to holding
up nominations have been made clear.
They will permit the confirmation of
the army, navy and diplomatic appoint
ments, but as a rule will hold up the
confirmation of what are regarded ns
political appointments, Including Judges,
marshals, attorneys, postmasters, and
customs and revenue officials In cases
where the appointments go to States
having two Democratic senators.
Ostensibly this Is for the good of the
service, but In reality, the purposo Is
to obtain all the jobs possible for Democrats.

he drinks a "highball" or a "cocktail"

This Is a question which seemed to
puzzle the personnel of the United

you have to take a cocktail before
breakfast the morning after," said the
court to Simon Cowan, of 32t C street
northwest, who was arraigned on a
charge of assaulting his wife.
