pointments were 9uch that he could not
find it Convenient to accept the in
vitation. Incidentally this was the
first time the hospitality of the White
House has been declined in so many
years that much tuss was made about
it in official circles.
Shortly after the first of the year it
was learned at the White House to
day the President sent word to Governor
Wilson that there were a number of
important state matters which would
be pending when administration chang
ed and that if the new bxecutive cared
to do so one or more Cabinet members
would be sent to Trenton to explain
their status. To this proffer came an
other courteous reply asking to be
excused, with the explanation that
New Jersey affairs needed attention
at the time.
A third time advances were made by
Mr. Taft. A few days ago the President
sent word to the Governor that the con
fidential dispatches and other private
information of the State, War and
Navy Departments bearing upon the
Mexican situation would be laid belore
the incoming Executive for his infor
mation, if Mr. Wilson had the op
portunity to acquaint himself with
these matters now. A third time the
offer was not accepted.
There is nothing in all this of serious
mportance, of course, but it has caused
a volume of capital gossip. All hands
