is not '-ady to pick the peopie upon
whom he is to lean most heavily in

weigh caiefully the qualifications ol

news that has come from Trenton is-.
That Joseph P. Tumulty is to be
the next Secretary to the President.
That Governor Wi son will keen

That he has sent word to Washing

Some 6f thc things that have notJ
been learned rre:
Who is to til in thc next Cabinet?
Who is to have thc distribution of

Whether cr'not President Wi' son
meant what the public understood
him to have said when he intimated
that he would sur.ound himself onijj
