THE DEATH OF HARRY
JOHNSON IN ENGLAND
Harry E. Johnson, member of the
120th Machine Gun Company, died
in England, from an attack of pneu
monia, on October ;th. Mr. Johnson
was born and raised in Huntington.
Mo., but had made this locality his
home for so many years, that he
seems more like a Cass county boy
than from any other locality.
Harry enlisted in the army with
the large number of voluteers t hat
went from Cass county to Camp
Cody, where he remained until the
17th of September, when he sailed
with the balance of his company for
France. Upon arriving in England
he was stricken with pneumonia,
and died on the 0th of October. Tue
news of his death was given by the
proper authorities to his mother at
Huntington, Mo., who has conveyed
the sad intelligence to his many true
and loyal friends in and near -Murray,
where has spent a large portion
of his life.
At the time of enlistment. Harry
was working on' the farm for Tom.
Tilson, but had worked for a num
ber of other men of this community
and has always proven himself to he
a valuable man to his employer. He
was about twenty-five years of age.
He wass well liked by all who knew

tal procedure were shattered today
as a result of President Wilson's trip
to the European peace conference.
They were these:
Thomas R. Marshal, vice- president
of the United States, presided over
the resrnlar meeting of the cabinet,
this being the lirst time for a vice
president to perform such a function
lurim the life of a president.
Wireless communications were re
ceived by the cabinet from President
Wilson and a report of the meeting
was ent by wireless to the president,
this being the lirst time in American
hh-tory for such a maneuver.
Vice President Marshall presided
over the cabinet meeting at the re
quest of the president and the mem
bers of the cabinet as well. The
president, it develops, asked Mr. Mar
shall to undertake this function be-
f;-.re he sailed for France and early
todav Secretary of the Treasury Mc-
Ai o. senior member of the cabinet
in the absence of Secret ry Lansing,
called the vice president on the tele
phone and urged him to preside on
behalf of "he cabinet members.
The vie president having told the
president he would officiate inform
ally at the meetings during the lat
fer's absence, cheerfully accepted
the invitation from Sec McAdoo
and. was on the job at the white
house at "::.10 o'clock, with a big
black cigar and a gavel. To be cer
tain that he should run into no en
tanglements thereby. Vice President
Marshall prepared a brief statement
which he made to the cabinet on
calling it to order, and which he
later' made public. It was as fol
lows: Make Brief Statement.
"Gentlemen: In assuming the
chair and presiding over what is
known as a meeting of the cabinet I
neeui it proper to make a brief state
ment so that my conduct may not be
misunderstood. I am lure and am
acting in obedience to a request pre
ferred by the president upon the eve
oi' his departure and also at your re
quest. ! il I am here informally ami
personally. 1 am not undertaking
to exercise any official duty or func
tion. I shall preside in an unofficial
and informal way over your meet
ings out of deference to your desires
and those of the president."
This was the vice president formal
utterance on assuming his informal
office which he later described as the
function of a "referee." Mr. Marshall
however, made an informal an
nouncement to the cabinet which
leaked out afterward and which went
a long way to satisfy the president's
advisors that he will make no stren
uous effort to assume the presidency
during the absence of Mr. Wilson.
The vice president is authoriti vely
quoted as having said:
"Now gentlemen, this question of
presidential succession has caused
line and many others considerable un
j easiness and concern. I wish to say
it hat there is no longer anything un
j certain about it so far as I am con
icerned. After all the constitutional
lawyers in the country had passed
on the issue, I was still unsatisfied,
