Mr. Taft sald to-day that hls Cablnet
would not bo completed untll March
4th. He added that he expected to
make progress in that dlrectlon before

being that some of the places would
be filled and the .announcements made
before he salla. Ho sald he should not
conalder forelgn departments until hla
Cablnet was complete.
Unlted States Senator Henry Cabot
Lodge, of Massachusetts, arrlved here

said to-nlght that he had nothlng
whatever to say for publlcation. Mr.
Taft sald they had dlscussed Cablnet
matters. The frlendllness of Mr. Lodge
for Postmaster-General Meyer Is .well
known; also thc fact that, he belleves
Mr. Meyer's services would add to the
strength of tho Cablnet. preferably as
the head of the Treasury Department.

ONE has but to livo in Washington
a short whlle to see the dlfferenco
between the Westerner and the

who has reud books and magazlnfes,
Imaglnes that the West la occupled by

taoular performera, but I havo boen
convlnced that these are not all, not

than tho negro lyncher is" represonta

Tho real Westerher. the man who la

hustle and amartneas, and theso vlr

speech about hls partlcular reglon and
hls pocketa bulglng wlth attractlve
pamphleta, which carry charmlng de
scrlptlons and eloquent figures. Ever>

Haa the Documenta.
"What about Oregon? Is lt a good
placo to Uve?" I Inquired of a repre?
sentatlve ln Cong'ress from the growing
llttle Paciflc Coast State.
"Good place? Why, it's the greatcst
place," was the enthuslastlc reply.
"What have you in the way of ad
vertlalng llterature?"
"All sorts of atuff; somethlng from
every county," he sald, as he opened ?
drawer and began to pull out booklets,
handsomely bound, elaborately Hlus
trated and carefully wrltten booklets.
From a book on "Medford and the
Roguo River. Valley" I copied the fol?
lowing: "The object of thls booklet is
to tell the world somethlng of tho con
ditiona here, that others may know and
enjoy, If they wlll, thls garden spot of
the West. Wo who livo hero know of
no othor place so attractlve-?none with
such great possibilities. In tolling the
marveloua story that ls rclated here
we have endeavored rather to under
estlmate than exaggerato, knowlng that
so much can bo sald ln favor of thla
favored valley' that even the pUin,
unvarnlshed truth would seem to many
as the llmlt of exaggeratlon. Thls
wlll especially be the case wlth those
who havo been aceustomed to bend
tbelr backs m tho doubtful struggle of
maklng thelr far'ms not from $25 to
$50 per acre.
"When such poople aro told that it
ls possible to clear from JC00 to $1,500
per acro each year in Rogue _xiver
Valloy they naturally are inclined to
doubt the veraclty of thoae who are
reaponalble for such a statement. Yot,
thls ls not only a posslblllty, but a
warm, glowlng, oft-demonstrated fact."
Tlie Present, Not the Past.
Thls partlcular pamphlet. which
contalned about seventy-flve pages,
had for its cover deslgn, prlnted in
most appeallng colors, the plcture of a
Splzenberg apple tree, which stands
near the town of Medford, The sub
jects treated are Jnckson county and
the clty of Medford, under tho foitow

as, a basls for determinlnjj- how much
should be contrlbuted In tho present
