P. NIGHT WIRE WASHINGTON, Nov. 8. Several changes In the Cabinet by next spring are looked for In Washington as a result of the rumor that soma members are to resign to resume private life, and a belief that President Coolidge after next March 4 will prefer a Cabinet entirely of his own selection. Upon assuming the Presidency after the death of President Harding, Mr. Coolidge requested all members of the Cabinet not to submit their resignations. While he has made no such request with the approach of a term of four years to which he has "been elected by vote of the people, he has neither asked for nor received in any way resignations of members of the present Cabinet. It is expected that he will urge successfully several members of the present Cabinet to continue in office after his inauguration in March. Although Secretary Hughes is understood to have indicated to friends that he would prefer for private reasons to return to the practice of law, it Is the general view that the Secretary of State will continue at his post for a year, if not longerr while Secretaries Mellon and Hoover as well as Atty.-Gen. Stone are regarded as fixtures. On the other hand, Hubert Work Secretary of the Interior, has intimated to friends he wishes to retire, Mrs. Work recently died and he is known to have felt the shock very severely. WEEKS MAT RETIRE While Secretary Weeks is closo to the administration and regarded as the man for the office, friends report that he, too, because of 111 health and for personal reasons would like to step out of offl- cial life. There are also persistent rumors that Secretary Wilbur is being considered for a Federal judgeship in California. He came from . the bench to head the Navy Department, but is one of the two members of the present Cabinet select ed by Mr. Coolidge.- The Postofllce Department port- ( Continued on Pago S, Column 8) IN THE GREATER SUNDAY "TIMES" TODAY THE SKY.

P. NIGHT WIRE WASHINGTON, Nov. 8. The Cost of running the Federal government in the fiscal year beginning next July 1 may fall below $3,000,000,000, or $500,000,000 less than the estimated expenditures for the current fiscal year. On the basis of estimates pre-- .pared by the 'Budget Bureau and on which Its conferences with the epending departments of the government have been completed, the anticipated appropriations for the year beginning next July 1, stood at $2,890,000,000, exclusive of the Postofllce Department, the receipts of which are expected to balance the expenses. Officials of the budget still have work to do on the "budget of 1926." which will be submitted by the President to the forthcoming short session of Congress FEW CHANGES SEEN But they have gone so thoroughly into every estimate, great and small, submitted to them by the several branches of the government, that they feel any changes to be made hereafter will be In the nature of thousands rather than in millions of dollars. Brig.-Gen. H. M. Lord, director nf the budget, will go over the figures and tabulations with President Coolidge some time next week and after that, It is expected ihe government estimates will be ready for the public printer. On the basis of the figures as they stood tonight the ordinary expenditures are expected to fall below $1,700,000,000, exclusive of those by the Postofllce Department.' This contemplates retention of the present basis of Income and few in the government anticipate that Congress will have time to do anything on tax reduction, since President Coolidge has Indicated he will not call the new Congress, just elected, into an extraordinary session.

Nov. 8. With Storm King Mountain ablaze, Dun-derberg Mountain alive with great dragons of fire that redden the night, and with fire raging along a fourteen-mile front from West Point to Haverstraw the hosts of forest fire fighters, although still waging desperate -warfare against the creeping, crackling foe, now feel that rain alone can end the struggle. Great areas In both New York and New Jersey glow throughout the night with a weird beauty that Is lost in the terror the fire foe awakens in the hearts of those whose homes are menaced by Its relentless, tank-like advance, and on the mountainsides water is not available and fire must be fought with fire In the hope that the enemy will die for lack of aught to feed on. , ; HOMES ABANDONED In Comwall-On-Hudson, Firth-cllft and other villages along the edge of Storm King Mountain, every available man has been pressed (Continued on Pago 3, Column ) Dead City of the Jungle, by Gertrude Emerson; The Nut, by Fannie Hurst; Old China as Seen in Canton, by Frank G.

YOUNG EXCLUSIVE DISPATCH NEW YORK, Nov. 8.- Great Britain has trampled on the revolutionaries who were undertaking to overturn the present order and set up a Socialist state. By an unprecedented vote she has sent her Conservatives, two to one, into the House of Commons to get up a stable government that will be wedded ; to the old Constitution and the remain in power for five years to do so. So the dream of the Moscow Reds and their followers of a world revolution to start In Britain goes up in smoke for the time being, at least, and the world at large can take a lot of comfort in that fact and In the stability which h come to the heart of the greatest of empires. But the decision of the British people to set their feet on the old paths is not the finish of labor troubles In that land. In fact, the election and the installation of the Conservative Baldwin Ministry is but the prelude to a great labor conflict. The Red revolutionaries may have been tai rht their lesson, but the powerful Labor party of more than 6,000,000 and the great unions It represents must now be subdued if that can be done. The greatest problem of the Baldwin ministry will be to compel the British worker to work as Germans, Frenchmen and Americans work. Unless he does so, Britain will be unable to recover MARKET HITS NEW PEAKS Saturdays Trading Greatest in History; Records Set in Stocks and Bonds; Wheat Advances tBT A. P. NIOHT WIRE NEW YORK, Nov. 8. -Bullish enthusiasm, founded on the speculative belief that a marked revival In trade was in prospect with the removal of election uncertainties, ran rampant today In virtually all the aecurltles and commodities markets reaching Its Intensity in the stock market which experienced the most active half-holiday session la lta history with a total volume of sales Another orgy of speculation in the railroad shares, coupled with an enormous investment demand for the high grade issues, boosted forty-three issues to new peak prices for the year including New York Central, Pennsylvania, Southern Pacific, the Rock Island, Wabash and Missouri Paclflo Issues, Baltimore and Ohio, Southern Railway. Atlantic Coast Line and Louisville and Nashville. The general price average of railroad shares was lifted to lta highest level In seven years. Industrial shares also attained a new hich average for the year despite enormous prollt-taklng. United States Ste! common led the advance in this group, touching 118, the highest price in five years. American Can and United States Cast iron Pipe sold at their highest prices in history while American Tobacco "11," United Drug, Corn Products and a acore others old ways. That majority can if it holds together and chooses her trade and halt the adverse forces that are making for economic and financial disaster. But to do so he will have to force the great unions to revise their present rules and practices. And they will flyht with all their power against such revision. IDLING A SCIENCE What I am now laying stress on Is something which had no emphasis In the recent British cam-Daien. but which In the minrta nf leaders of that country and outside ; observers had a place as Important as the question of countenancing revolutionary agitation. It was known that, as the result of the election, whether it went Conservative or went Labor, the employers and workers were going to come to grips over the question of elll-cient labor. Scientific idling, restriction by unions of the output of their members, has long been a cardinal prin- clble of British uniondom. The theory was that one worker should .

Railroad bonds moved upward In the wake of stocks, the day's sales In this market also establishing a new Saturday record for all time at approximately 113,700.000. Dullish sentiment, engendered by the unprecedented demand for securities, permeated to the commodity markets. Chicago wheat futures for all months from December to May closed at net gains of 1 6-8 to 1 7-8 cents a bushel. The advance In corn prices ranged from m to nearly 2 cents a bushel. An outburst of buying at the opening of the coffee market resulted In extreme gains of US to 80 points which were subsequently reduced to net gains of 16 to 20 points on heavy Brazilian selling. Cotton future reacted upon receipt of the government report which was about in line with the trade's expectations but rallied later in sympathy with ths ad- (Continued on I'ago 8, Column 4) OPERATE TO SAVE WIDOW OF HARDING Doctors Say She Suffered Little Shock, But F,xpress Anxiety Over Heart rnr a. p. nioht wirkj MARION (O.) Nov. 8 Mrs. Florence King Harding, widow of President Harding, who has been 111 with kidney trouble several weeks, underwent an exploratory operation this evening. Mrs. Harding withstood the operation with but little shock, according to an announcement of physicians, and tonight was said to "manifest her usurtt courage and hopefulness." The following bulletin was Is sued by the attending physicians tonight: "The important manifestations In Mrs. Harding's case early in the week were interrupted by an almost complete occlusion of the right ureter, necessitating an exploratory puncture, which, it Is hoped, will afford temporary relief. "Her general condition, while not immediately critical, Is such as to cause the greatest anxiety because of the condition of her heart and because of the compll- cations which have developed ln the upper part of her abdomen.

P. GALLAGHER IKXCUCSIVB DISTATCHJ CHICAGO, Nov. 8.- Winter. which set in Friday over the Great Lakes region and the entire Northwest, has come to stay for a long period. Next week, according to predictions of the United States Weather Bureau at Washington and the local Weather Bureau, Boreas Is scheduled to tighten his grip on the whole territory between the Rocky Mountains and the Atlantic seaboard. The lowest temperature In this section since midnight was 32 degrees at 1 a.m. By 8 a.m. the thermometer! had risen to 37 degrees, but stiff chilly biting winds ac companied by a light fall of snow drove the mercury back and made It seem several degrees coldor than it really was. " 5 BLIZZARD IN MONTANA -A heavy snowstorm started over J Montana early today and reached the proportions of a blizzard, with subzero temperatures in some sections of that Sate. An eight-Inch, snowfall blanket ed Northern and Central Michigan, bringing with it a touch of real winter. ' In the East, New York State re ported a record drought. No rain has fallen for thirty days and a search of the Weather Bureau tiles shows nothing of the kind for more than fifty years. Inhabitants of many parts of the Empire State are reported praying for early winter rains to quench the forest tires now sweeping over the eastern parts of the State, doing great damage to timber lands and threatening many smaller cities. With a blanket of cold, damp weather settling down over the Middle West and with the election over and everybody opttmlstio over the business outlook of the next four years under the administration of President Coolidge an annual heglra to the sunny climes of Southern, California Is getting under way with a vim.

All Northern and Central California is being covered with one of tho heaviest rainfalls of the season. From the Oregon line to ths Tehaehapi rain has been falling intermittently for twenty-four hours, and more Is forecast for tomorrow. In ths mountains snow took the place of rain, over a foot falling In places. Streams which have been dry for months, are now rushing torrents and on the Klamath River a bridge was washed out. An Inch of rain fell at Chlco Friday night, a record for the season. The rain was accompanied by a high wind. Three-quarters of an Inch fell at Santa Rosa, and almost an Inch a tEureka. At Redding the heavlext rain of the season was reported ovir Northern California. The season's total Is now 7.84 Inches. Snow was three inches deep on the streets of McCloud this morning. One of the logging camps reported a dopth of sixteen Inches. The snow which fell Thursday at Dunsrnutr shaded off into rain today. Rainfall to date at Dunsmulr la 10.85 inches. I Because ths Wlchapt brldgs even far beyond the enormous scope alreaJy revealed, the finding of the certificates brought about hurried telegrams from the City Prosecutor's office to officials throughout the country, seeking information as to the reputation and credibility of the associations involved. nUXT SEVEN DIRECTORS Meanwhile, officers were still engaged in intensive search for spv-en directors of the N.I.S.A.. wh have yet not been served with warrants charging them with conspiracy, fraud and larceny. Other officers were trying to serve warrants for thirty-six asserted clar-voyanta and psychics whom, it U averred, have been violating consistently city ordinances in the operation of their tratt. Tomorrow morning a3 will sea the summing up of evidence collected by Atty.-Gen. Webb at Saa Francisco with a view to the inauguration of quo warranto pro ceedings, looking f.ward the revocation of the cnarter not only of the National Independent Spiritualist Association but of every other like organization whose tactics have been that of a diploma mill. Search warrants Issued Friday by I'cliee Judge Sheldon for the headquarters of virtually every commercial psychic wfthin the city limits of Los Angeles when served yesterday brought additional in formation to the prosecutor.

STATE LAWS LAX Among the new organtratlons to make their appearance in the field Of inquiry are the Church of Eternal Truth, Christ Spiritualist of Los Angtlcs, the Independent Snlrv ' Itualist 'Church, .of San Frarx-isoo. the Second Spiritual Church of San Francfsco, the Church of Occult Thought, Los Angeles; ths Universal Church of the Master. Washington, D.

Apostolic Spiritualist Church, Los Angeles. All of these organizations are ordaining Spiritualist misisters under various corporate constitutions and by-laws, the prosecutor has discovered. How many thousands of persons have been victimized in addition to the large tile list already In his possession as the result of the N.I.S.A. raids ther can be no telling. Nearly all of these organization, the prosecutor hax found, have their centers in California; this perhaps being due to the undoubted laxness of California corporats statutes with respect to nonprofit associative bodies. FIRST GUILTY PLEA Among the possibilities of ths early part of the week as a result of the revelations procured through tha seizure of the N.I.S.A documents is a grand Jury investigation at San Diego of all psychics who have been operating there under the credentials of the N.I.S.A. These, in a hurried summary of the files taken yesterday, numbered moro than a score. It was pointed out yesterday that Dit.-Attj Chester C.
