ever has not changed his political

From Friday's I"aily.
Governor MeKelvie has further
cleared up the charge that he has
made a rule for the government of
secretaries of departments under the
code bill that will result in the de
lay or suppression of news in regard
to the conduct of public business.
The following statement signed by
the governor has been sent to sec
rearies of his departments:
"Some question seems to exist re
garding the giving out of news for
publication by the departments, bur
eaus and divisions operating under
the civil administrative code. In or
der that the matter may be clearly
understood. I have to suggest that:
"Secretaries should assume re
sponsibility for the giving out of in

THE STORM DID

Washington, D. C, Sept. 29.
After a day of rest President Wilson
was described as "slightly better,"
in an official bulletin issued tonight
by Dr. Gary Grayson.
The buletin which recorded the

in Mr. Wilson's condition since he
was taken ill last Friday, did not
give details. It was issued at 10
o'clock tonight and was as follows.

of Illinois, Swope, Kinchelce, Lang

$15 per month collected from them
for the care of their dependents, and
to pay them in addition $15 per
month of service exclusive of the
first two months to equalize the de

"and they should be dealt with fair

The eastern portion of Cass coun
