-Said to Be Long One
Cabinet Members Sucrrestions as to;
Changes Headed by the President
In Conference.
WASHINGTON. Peo. 8. President Tart
today completed his message and sent It
to lha government printing office In Its
rinI form. The document was laid before
flam.) There I merry war between tlie I the cnbinet at a special session which be-
attorneya representing the elate of Ne
braska In the bnnk guaranty esses, all
growing out of the appearance of Arthur
Mullen as attorney general.
Mr. Mullen, who lies yet to be admitted
to practice before the supreme court, has
concluded that he Is the proper person to
present the cane of Nebraska In the guar
anty cases, which, while on call for this
week, may go over till aftr the Christmas
holidays. Attorney General Mullen Is In
Washington, as are his associates In the
ease, I. L. Albert of Columbus and C. O.
Whodon of I,lncoln. anticipating that the
case wilt be called on schedule time.
Mullen and Albert drifted Into Washing
ton today with the determination to fhow
tha supreme court that they would take
charge of the argument on behalf of the
state, leaving Mr. Wbebn to hold the
sack. But as Is usual with counsel hav
tng causes before the court, they failed
to ascertain whether the bank guaranty
cams Involving laws on the subject affect
ing Nebraska. Oklahoma nnd Kansas would
be reached on call as scheduled, and as a
result Mullen and Albert nre In Washing
ton for an InfWInlte period.
Whedon I.lea In Walt.
Mr. Whedon In the meantime has taken
lodgings In the suite of his old law part
ner. Governor Charles E. Magoon, In the
Marlborough, a fashionable apartment In
tho northwest quarter, and Is prepared to
stay all winter, or until the case are
The clerk of the court said today:
"Really you cannot tell when these cases
will be called. Certainly not this week, and
probably not until after the holidays."
Should Mr, Whedon be shut out of pre
senting the case of Nebraska by reason of
n attorney general who has but two
months to serve, ha can reflect on the
parallel of the maxlmum'rate case. When
C. J. Smyth waa attorney general. John L.
Webster waa retained to represtnt the
atate. C, J. Smyth Invited W. J. Bryan
Into the case as associate counsel The
esse coming on for argument, Mr, Webster
opened. Mr. Bryan followed, and when Mr.
Smyth arose to address the court,
t 10 o'clock this morning and lasted
riea 3 In the afternoon. The mes
sage Is aid to be unusually long, the esti
mates running from SO.OOO to 40,000 words.
The president went over every feature of
the document with the cabinet advisors
and It Is si.ld that some changes were made
at their Huggestlori.
President Taft will send a special mes
sage to congress nct week embodying the
report of the board of engineers appointed
to examine Irrigation and reclamation
projects In the west. At the last session
of congress IZO.OOO.OOO waa appropriated to
complete the worthy projects.

Appropriations Early
Tho opening of the short session of con
gress next Monday will find appropriation
bills In shape for earlier action than In any
recent year. Tha appropriation bills must
11 originate in tho house of representatives
nd tho committees of that body are now
at work upon them, with prospects of hav
ing several of the big bills ready for tha
first week of tho cession.
Tho river and harbor committee of the
house began work yesterday on its $30,000,
W appropriation bill and Representative
Alexander of New Tork, chairman of the
committee, expects to have the measure
ready for the house within a week.
Many of tho separate appropriation bills
originate with the chairman. Subcommit
tee of that body are now at work upon tho
bill which carries funds for the legislative,
executive and Judicial branches of the
government, tho measure providing funds
for the District of Columbia.
Both of theso will bo ready for the house
before Christmas recess. The unusual
activity upon the appropriation bills is
duo to a destra to have them before the
bouse aa early as possible so that there
will bo ample time for their consideration.
Tho rules of tho house have been so
changed during this congress that appro
priations cannot be given as speedy con
sideration as In the past.
It Is expected the Indian bill will have
pasted tha house before Christmas ad
journment, and that one or two other ap
propriation measures will bo under consid
eration by that time.
Attachment oa Book Stock.
BEATRICE, Neb., Dec. 2. (Special.)
The sheriff this evening levied on the
stock of the Beatrice Book store, good
by T. P. Matthews, who r;Cently came
here from Grand Island, to satisfy a claim
of $560 held by the Peoplis Department
store of Sioux City, la. The store was
closed tonight Pending a settlement of the

Mary Walker Making Contest of
Will of Father la Dearer
BEDFORD, la.. Deo. i (Special.) Mrs.
Mary Walker of Bedford is fighting the
will of ber father, the late Rufus
("Potato") Clark, in the Denver courts.
Mr. Clark died in that city In September
and his fortune of nearly $500,000 was
largely bequeathed to the Clark Missionary
and Training school In West Africa.
The daughter is seeking to have tho will
set aside on the grounds that her father
was suffering from insane delusions and
prejudices against herself and mother,
brought about by tho missionaries who
surrounded him.
By the terms of tho will Mrs. Walker
was left $20,000 and her mother a like sum
together with the Clark homestead in Den
ver, and the rest of tho property went to
the missionaries, who, it Is said, will bit
terly conteet the action of the daughter.
Rufus Clark was a most unique char
acter. Born in Connecticut eighty-seven
years ago, he ran away at the age of 13
years and went to sea,, shipping aa a cabin
boy from Bar Harbor, Me., and tor fifteen
years obeyed the "call of the sea," In 1S60
the lure of the .gold mines In Colorado
drew hlrn to that place and he tried his
hand at mining. ' In this he waa a failure.
kuc turning his attention to farming he
filed on large tracts of land in and near
Denver, and In the first year sold $30,000
worth of potatoes to the miners. It was
this that won for him tha sobriquet of
"Potato" Clark. As tho city of Denver
grew his land became very valuable and
today his holdings ther are estimated at
near the $1,000,000 mark.
LONDON, Dec. 2 There Is a possibility
of an unexpected result In the attempt
by A. J. Ralfour, the oppos'tlon leader,
to remove tariff reform from the Immedi
ate f!eld of politics. The question looms
larger than ever in the campaign tonight,
so that Mr. Balfour himself, in a speech
at Reading, was fain to explain that his
party had not altered Its views on this
subject and that tariff reform was still
a chief plank In the party's constructive
policy; but he explained the unionists
needed to obtain the formal and explicit
consent of the people thereto. The policy
of the referendum, he said, was con
sistent with the true Idea of popular gov
ernment. ,
Mr. Balfour'a pronouncement on Novem
ber 29 that he was w iling to submit tariff
reform to a referendum, has rather sur
rendered than knit his party and supplied
the liberals with another effective argu
ment against tariff reform, namely that
Mr. Balfour has been compelled to side
track It.
Asqalth. Makes Reply.
The interest In the speeches tonight cen- 1
tered In Premier Asqulth's reply to the
opposition leader at a meeting In Wolver
hampton. The premier said:
"We are living In times of rapid move
ment, when It Is a relief to wake any morn
ing and not find some fresh part of the
constitution reconstructed."
He described Mr. Balfour's "turn about
face" on the questions of reform of tho
House of Lords and tariff reform as
unique, almost Indecent. He said that he
could not Imagine a greater caricature of
tho referendum than putting a few ab
stract questions to the people without
concrete embodiment of their proposals.
If anyone but a responsible statesman had
contemplated such a scheme he would be
called a madman.
After a study of the working of tho refer
endum In foreign countries, the premier
continued, he had arrived at the conclu
sion that It had proved a moat unsatis
factory and disappointing method oT as
certaining publlo opinion.
Winston Spencer Churchill, home secre
tary, addressed several meetings at Dun

Next to the Presentation of Gifts
The Greatest Pleasure of the
Christmas Season Comes from
Early Selection of
the Gifts
Heedless delay makes gift buying burdensome task a series of vex
ing, tiresome and quite frequently dia appointing experiences. Many find
excuse for such delays in the Idea that they must be in tha crowds to en
joy full measure of the spirit of the season.
The real Christmas spirit lives in the farsighted shopper who comes
to the last week or ten days before Christmas with all gifts ready for pre
sentation. They possess that great pleasure of satisfaction that follows the
knowledge that in each gift the rljfht selection was made chosen with
ample time and intelligently.
Much of the real Joy of gift-giving Is lost in the hurried selection and
immediate presentation. Much of the atmosphere that surrounds the gift
depends upon the care and the little personal touches given the wrappings
and the tying all of which is quite often neglected in the late selection.
