Assistant Secretary of State Lays Offi cial Robe Aside. Washington, (Special.) Huntington "Wilson, assistant and acting secretary of state, has resigned that office and insisted updn immediate acceptance of the resignation because, of his radical difference of opinion i ne adminis tration regarding its Chinese policies. President Wilson immediately ac cepted the resignation. Mr. Wilson, like all assistant secre taries In the various departments, ten dered his resignation as a matter .of form to President Wilson directly upon the latter's assumption of office. Mr. Wilson was. requested to continue in "his place unjil it should be convenient for the President to name his succes sor He consented to do so to accom modate Secretary Bryan in his desire to make his present visit to Lincoln, Heb. : " The Issue of'the statement from the "White House dining the administra tion's attitude ygardlng the Chinese loan negotiations is believed to have been regarded by Assistant Secretary Wilson as sufficient to justify: him in requesting to be relieved at-once from duty. . " . . , - After telegraphic notice to Secretary Bryan of his intentions, Mr. Wilson, late yesterday afternoon dispatched a ncte to the White House terminating liis own service; and President Wilson at once designated Second Assistant Secretary Adee toact as secretary of state during Secretary Bryan's pres ent absence. ' ' President Wilson replied as follows: ""My Dear Sir: "Allow me to acknowledge the re ceipt of your letter of yesterday and t. say that accept your resignation as you suggest as of the present date." HOW IT CAME ABOUT "Why Corporations Will Have To "Come Across With Higher Franchise Tax. Raleigh, N. C., (Special). A special topic here in State house circles is low it happened that the franchise tax for corporations got ed up" m tne new revenue act so that the original . corporate franchise tax of one-fifteenth of one per cent, came through for rat iiicatlon Instead of the onetwenty-flfth of one per cent, rate, to which the bill vas amended by the Senate and adher ed to in the conference' committee fit spite of efforts of Chairman Williams, of the House Committee, and Others. It developes that the Senate amend ment was a second amendment writ ten on a single sheet of paper. There is a Senate rule against having more than one amendment! on a sheet, but in this case the two amendments were acted 6n in this shape and when they went to the enrolling clerk'a office cop yists failed to notice that Ihere were two amendments on the sheet, copied the first, one and the other, the change in the franchise tax, was dropped out The change in the franchise tax rate iaakes only a difference, of $6 in the taxes a $25,000 corporation; will have to pay compared with the rate the Sen ate thought- it was forcing into the act. However, the difference becomes considerably more noticeable in. million an p mnunn dollar fcornorations, striking pancciallr the domesticated rporations tit Iflgh Tcapitalization. ' .-, f CEAIG TO NA2IE COUNTY, ihe laovernor. Will Designate County A . for Government Aid in Highway, v Construction, "v - T (By Parker R. Anderson.)'' " Washington, (Special.) As; soon as Postmaster ; General Burleson hears from - Governor Craig, v who has - been asked to . designate the county in which he ' desires to use the $10,000 available -under the provision of the Simmons "federal aid to good ror.ds" Jaw, experts ' from the; office of Direc tor of Roads Waller Page, will be sent to tne, state to arrange for the begin-1 nlng of the work. The county which uesires to .use tne federal appropria tion will be required to furnish $20, 000. Director Page said today that he is anxious to begin work in every state which; is entitled to the appropriation by the federal government . Director Page pointed out, however, that difficulty may be experienced in a number of states. The work is to be done ; under' federal supervision and will be classed as a government job. Hence the eight hour law will be ap plied and convicts cannot be used in the construction of the piece of road which the federal government helps to build. Experts from Mr. Page's office were sent to Dillon, S. C, a few days ago to begin work in that state, when the 'authorities at Dillon learned that they would , have to comply, with- the eight hour-law and that convicts could hot be used they- refused to sign the government contract. So If the people of North Carolina or any other state desire to use the federal appropriation they will have to comply with these provisions, unless some one is found to rule differently from the construction which the di rector of roads' has put upon the l&w. The Simmons law appropriated only $500,000. The idea being to use the money more as an experiment than for anything else. But good roads are be ing demanded throughout the United States and the people are demanding that the federal government help build roads where these highways are used by Uncle Sam to carry mail. It is ex pected that at least $2,000,000 will be appropriated by the . sixty-third Con gress for good roads.. . TREATED IT LIGHTLY, f Some Legislators Tried to Hake Sport of Important Measure. When the house . of the legislature finally passed the bill to allow women to become members of school commit tees and school boards, it did so very ungraciously. Representative Fergu son offered an amendment which pro vided that women eligibles must be 33 years old, pay poll tax, have been un successful candidates for matrimony IS years and have a decided convic tion of man's general bad judgment. Some of them have that condition all right. Another amendment by a mem ber whose, name is not recalled stipu lated that no married woman shall hold any of. these offices who . has children unless she has first provided. a lock-up of suitable security for her own chil dren while she is out trying to manage other people's children. As a matter of fact if the women, generally speaking, didn't look after ,the children they would receive no at tention. Some day the sisters may have a chance at the mere men who make remarks like that, and if they do it r will be . more tolerable for Sodom and Gomorrah in the day of judgment than for. the men aforesaid.

Congressman Page, like all the oth er democratic congressmen, Is not find ing it easy -to get jobs for his constit uent. The order of President Taft putting fourth-class postmasters un der civil service regulations, has al most taken: the -postoffices of that class: out of politics. A Washington dispatch of recent date says that Mr. Page called on Postmaster General Burleson for a ruling about the ap pointment of fourth-class postmasters who are being ground out by the civil service commission daily. " Mr. Page asked if he could have a. say in the naming of fourth-class postmasters in his district Mr. Burleson said that a word from . Mr. Page "for one of the three submitted by the civil service commission would , Influence him in naming the , postmasters The post mater general can name any one of the three highest sent up by the com mission. The law gives him that dis cretion. Mr. Page will recommend one of the three selected by the civil service commlssionDispatch.
