Commoner readers are so familiar
with tho career of the new secre
tary of state that it is omitted from
this list. Tho Lincoln (Neb.) Even
ing News gives the following descrip
tion of tho new cabinet members.
W. C. McAdoo, secretary of the
treasury, was born in Marietta. Ga..
on October 31, 1863. Ho was edu
cated at tho University of Tennessee
and in November, 1885, was made
deputy clerk of the United States
circuit court for the southern
division of eastern Tennessee. He
studied law and was admitted to the
bar in 1885, practicing in Chatta
nooga and becoming counsel for the
Central Railroad and Banking com
pany and tho Richmond and Danville
railroad. Coming to New York Mc
Adoo looked about for some way to
carry out his ambitious plans to be
come a real railway operator. He dis
covered that tho Haskins company
had a concession to build a tunnel
to Jorsey and had been obliged to
abandon the project for lack of capi
tal. So McAdoo borrowed $70,000,
000 and built the twin tunnels which
havo greatly aided in the develop
ment of Jersey as a suburb of New
York. During the last campaign Mc
Adoo was in charge of tho work of
electing Wilson and so well did he
accomplish his task, and so great was
his attention to detail that President
Wilson personally complimented him
on the showing. McAdoo is a -wonder
at any work necessitating atten
tion to detail and this quality at
tracted the president to him. He has
recently been suggested for head of
several important railway systems
but sidetracked his own plans to aid
the incoming administration.
A real newspaper editor was hon
ored when President Woodrow Wil
son named Josephus Daniels as sec
retary of tho navy in his cabinet.
Joe' Daniels, as his friends know
mm, is one of the most successful of
southern editors. Incidentally ho is
also a lawyer and legal friends who
have been In closo touch with him
declare that if ho had wanted to
pra-ctico that profession he would be
ono of the top notchers.
Daniels was born in Washington,
N C, on May 18, 1862, and received
his education in tho Wilson, N C
collegiate institute, becoming editor
of tho Wilson Advance when only
eighteen years old. Ho became edi
t0r of the Raleigh State Chronicle in
1885 and remained In that post until
1 94, when ho consolidated the
Chronicle with tho News and
Observer. Since then he has been
editor of tho paper.
Daniels has served as state printer
of North Carolina and from 1893 to
1895 was chief clerk of the depart
ment of the Interior. Ho has been
national committeeman from his
state and one of the real workers
about democratic national head-
Representative A. S. Burleson, tho
postmaster general. The choicest
southern dialect in the new cabinet
will be furnished by .representative
Albert Sidney Burleson, of Austin,
Texas. Ho has achieved a reputa
tion in congress as a firebrand orator
and as the wearer of the most
comfortable looking summer clothes
of any legislator said garments
being a washable blue-jeans sort
of stuff that hang loosely about
Burleson's spare frame. One other
Burleson characteristic is a "bang"
of hair that curls forward over his
high forehead. Since Representative
Sulzer left to become g'-'ernor of
New York, it is the gnest bang in
Burleson is a nlanter and a law
yer. He Is fifty years of age, chock
full of nervous energy and intensely
earnest in his conversation. His
favorite posture in debate is with
his shoulders hunched forward, his
head twisted sideways, his florid
face all puckered up, and an admoni
tory finger extended. He has a high
pitched voice, caressingly southern in
its drawl. Burleson is comfortably
well-off and knows farming par
ticularly southern farming from the
ground up. He has served as a mem
ber of tho house agricultural com
mittee for years, but recently left
that body to devoto all his committee
time to the big appropriations com
mittee. Burleson was born at San Marcos,
Texas. He was educated at the Texas
agricultural and mechanical college,
Baylor university and the University
of Texas, and started law practice
in 1885. For six years he served as
assistant city attorney of Austin and
was appointed state's attorney in
1891 and elected to that place for
three terms. He first came to con
gress in 1898.
