At that time men were groping for the true light. • With Christ's coming they found It. He urged his audience to think well of the meaning of the occasion of Christmas, to gather lessons from It, and became imbued with the love of the Savior. Rev. R. H.

I Kansas City Journal.) \Vashlngton, Dec. 21—Cabinet build-, ers at the national capital, and those who have moved to Georgia as a part of the entourage of President -elect WJIliam IL Taft, are succeeding in " placing on the anxious l >ench public men in all sections of the country, who have been looked upon as aaplr-:^ ants for portfolios, or whoae qualifl-^ • cations have been urged by admiring , friends. The announcement of the appointment of Frank H. Hitchcock to be postmaster general, followed by that of Senator Philander C. Knox to be sec retary cf state, and the generaL '7. ac- ..epied report that George W. Wicker- iharn of .Vew York la the choice pt Mr. . Taft for attorney general, indicates that the slate is being made up rapid- .y and that an announcement ot the entire cabinet may be expected liefore long. From a discussion of the cabinet slate among Mr. Taft's close frlenda in Washington, who would not bp likely lo indulge in idle gossip concerning it. there ssems to be a reasona1>Ie certainty that in addition to those named, Secretary Wilson will continue for a year-or more as the head of the agrl- ciiiiurul department; that Secretary riarfleld wi I retire from the cabinet ; that Judge Richard A. Uallinger of .•Seattle, Wash., will be given a place. ,ijob:ibJv that of secretary of the In.erli.r: that Luke KJ Wright will.'retire from the cabinet, and again.take i po.^it in the diplomatic service: and an Ohio main will be given the ,nis!tion of secretary o^ the treasury. Within the last feW days Ihe name .r Charles Nagel of Missouri has been Ii8rii .''.sed in eonectlon with the secre- .ury:-hlp r.f the department of com- nieite and labor. Ii is known that at one time Mr. Taft thought very strongly of naming .Vagel as atomey general, but that later he considered Wlckersham more- ada;»table to the purposes of that de- .oartment. He has said, however, that he would like an able lawyer to head he department of commerce and labor. Republican politicians are urging the claims of Missonrl for recognitipa ' and as Judge Nagel played a prominent iiart in the campaign as a memtier of the executive committee of the Republican national coiamlttee. the nian- rle would fall upon him naturally. If a ;.'are is given to that state. i Other names heard in connection with that department are those jo< William Loeb, Jr.. secretary to Preai- lenl Roosevelt: Oscar 8. Straus, who . new has a portfolio, and Oeorge A. Knight of California. It Is npt bell^r- °d here, however* that two places wlH go to the Pacific coast. Probably the moat difficult place remaining to be filled is that of secretary of the treasury. Among the OWo men mentioned are former Goreraor .Myron T. Herrlck and RepresentatlTe Bui ten. The report that there baa 'leen a break In the cordial re^atloas that have existed between Mr. Burton and .Mr. Taft are not credit^ by friends of both In this city,-end in many nuarters Mr. Burton la Btill regarded as. a pos.slblllty for the second liosi cf Importance In the cabinet.
