LOIKiE TROIBI.R BRINGS FIGHT
J. W. "Ilkett Ass.olts Dr. Roller
The trouble which haa been brewing In
Winner court. Tribe of Ben Hur, ovr the
efforts, of the supreme officers to depose
Mrs. Myrtle L. Sllkntt, the regularly elee ed
scribe, from that position, reached an
acute stage at the meeting Wednesday
night. Mrs. Sllkett's supporters were out
In full force and they demonstrated thslr
confidence In her by electing her chief to
succeed Dr. W. E. Roller.
Following the election some feeling be
tween the two factions was shown and
the dispute ended by Dr. Roller being as
saulted by J. W. SUkett, husband of the
newly-elected chief. Dr. Roller was
knocked down and until some of the cooler
heads Interfered and separated the com
batants there was for a short while a gen
eral mix up between the two factions.
Yesterday morning SUkett appeared In
police court and pleaded guilty to assault
and battery on Dr. Roller and Judge Sny
der assessed him $25 and costs, whloh
SUkett promptly paid.
Mr. SUkett on being elected chief an
nounced her resignation as scribe. . but
owing to the confusion which prevailed the
court failed to take action on It. Mrs.
SUkett will probably continue to fill the
office of scribe until January 1, when she
will be installed chief. In the meantime
the injunction secured by Mrs. SUkett In
the superior court restrains Mrs. Els.e
Ehlers, who was appointed by the supreme
uniurr 10 superseae dirs. Bimett as scribe,
from assuming the duties of the offKe or
tiicers to supersede Mrs. SUkett as scribe.

was what I saw and heard and thought in connection with those cross
country journeyings of Mr. Taft which I have undertaken to report.
Of all men. so it might be fancied, the President is that one of
whom too much truth could not be told. This, correct in theory, breaks
down under practical test. So many are partisans before they are pat
riots, so many are concerned for party rather than nation, that a truth
as to a man or admeasure which serves to hurt their cause is as sharply
resented as it is sharply denied.
For myself, however, I can see no way open but to go on giving
facts as I find them, let them gall whom they may. All the hard words
ever flung at me were for telling the truth. The greatest compliments
paid me were on what good-natured occasions 1 lapsed into sweetest

we all to be right, and so all go one way, we'd tip the boat over. Half
of us must be wrong to keep the ship in trim. I have been wrong as
often as any gentlemen of my acquaintance, and found it out myself. I

Number of Change. Made in Docu
ment During Five Hours' Session
of the Cabinet.
WASHINGTON, Dec. S. For five hours
today the cabinet discussed the final text
of President Taft's forthcoming message
and when the nine heads of the various
departments of the government emerged
from the cabinet room they left a literary
wreck behind them. President Taft sat
staring at a big bundle of proof sheets of
hla message on which the executive editors
had used the blue pencil unsparingly.
The message was rushed to the 'public
printer and a big force of compositors Is
at work on It tonight. The document will
be ready for distribution tomorrow, but It
will not be made public until it actually
Is read in congress next week.
None of the cabinet members would In
timate the changes made in the message
nor discuss the principal subjects touched
upon. It was admitted by Secretary of
State Knox the Nlcaraguan situation was
brought up in a general way and that
some reference to the present strained re
latione between the two nations would be
made in the document.
