NEW. YORK, Nov 16-Four men John A. Dix of New York, Gov Harmon of Ohio, Gov-Elect Wilson of New Jersey and Gov-Elect Eugene A. Foss of Massachusetts are named by Olle James, who Is expected to be the next senator from Kentucky, as available presidential timber. Congressman James, himself a national figure, is in New York visiting Ex-Congressman Joseph L. Rhinock of the 16th Kentucky district. Congressman Rhinock has retired from Kentucky politics, and is now a resident of New York city. Before 'leaving Kentucky, however, he saw to it that his private secretary, Arthur Rouse, was elected his successor to congress. "The recent election," said Congress, man James today, "has developed a number of great men in the democratic party. Dix, Harmon, Wilson and Foss particularly stand out as national figures and presidential timber for the pafty in 1912. "After the defeats of 1896 and 1900 everybody said the democratic party was deteriorating; that we had very ' few big men left in the party. People seemed to think that the republicans had a monopoly on brains and ability for statesmanship. The trouble was that we had no opportunity to develop and show the people what character of men we really had in the democratic ranks. "This year, however, the democratic party has produced a great crop of righ-class statesmen. There are four governors-elect and any number of congressmen who are really big men. Give us Just one more victory and the democratic party will have a monopoly on great men. Ollie James is one of the most picturesque figures in American politics today. He started his career as a page in the Kentucky house of representatives, and was famed as a boy orator. He has served three terms in congress, and is now slated to succeed T. C. Paynter as U S senator from the Blue Grass state. HOBART-MILLER. Daughter of Hingham Editor Wedded and Goes With Husband to His Home in Honolulu.

Accepted Assessmentsfrom Woman Regularly. WASHINGTON, Nov 16-Does the divorced wife necessarily turn over to the second wife not only the husband in the case, but also the beneficial rights in his life Insurance policies? This Is one of the knotty problems that the justices of the supreme court of the United States may be thinking about in their Thanksgiving vacation. In the meantime Annie Snyder of Chattanooga, Tcnn. the divorced. wife of the late Charles G. Snyder, is hoping for an early termination of her suit for the 1&W0 insurance on Snyders life, and the supreme mystic ruler of the Fraternal Mystic Circle is hesitating about paying it to -her, lest Ida M. Snyder of Brooklyn, N Y, ner saccessor at Snyders hearthstone and wife at the time of his death, may sue for the insurance. Just before the recess of the supreme court began attorneys for the first Mrs Snyaer asked the court to dismiss an appeal by the supreme mystic ruler from the decision oL the Tennessee courts favorable to Mrs Annie Snyder. The answer of the court is expected when it reconvenes Nov 28. The first Mrs Snyder claims the insurance because tne policy was made out to her as beneficiary, and for years, both before and after her divorce from Snyder, she paid the assessments. During the latter years she claims that the assessments were paid on an understanding with the then supreme mystic ruler that she probably would be entitled to the insurance if she continued payment of the assessments. The order contends that under its constitution and bylaws the first Mrs Snyder ceased to Wave interest in the policy when she was divorced, and the inadvertence and mistake of its officer could ont have affected the contract. However, the supreme court of Tennessee held that under the circumstances the order was estopped from denying the claim. MANSFIELD STORE ROBBED. Thomas J. Fox Loses About $150 by Depletion of His Stock by Visit of Burglars. MANSFIELD, Nov 16-About 1 this morning a daring burglary was committed at the clothing store of Thomas J. Fox, In the center of the Maln-st business section. The section is well lighted, there are tenements on either side and above the store, the night patrolman was on his beat and a laundry was in operation on the opposite side of the thoroughfare. The value of goods stolen is not exactly known. At first it was thought that $100 might cover the loss, but all the morning Mr Fox has discovered articles were missing, and it is Bafe to say his loss is nearly $150, and may be found even in excess of that amount. The investigation tended 'to show that there were two persons engaged in the robbery, and that possibly one of them was a boy. The only clew, upon which Chief of Police Jones can work at present, is a black double-breasted sack coat which the burglars left. It bore the name of a New Haven firm, and on the tag was written the name of Mr Kenney. The burglars gained entranoe by fore-ing a window in the rear of the shop. They went through most of the stock and left things scattered on the floor. They rifled the show windows and selected the best. They took several overcoats, sackeoats, shirts, sweaters, dozens of collars, garters, neck sweaters' and many other small articles In the furnishings line. They eompletelv emptied the jewelry case and cleaned out a stock of the cheaper grade of ties and two leather suit cases. Miss Nellie Fox, who resides above the store, heard the unusual noises and looked out, but thought thev were from someone on the streej. She listened, and soon heard the patrolman pass, and concluded that her fears were Imaginary. y . s v 1 ic " " f- -V f V v l v s&r, t v -v- :v ff iS- & " sr-. 3 4 $ f ' S' ' . fffi? 1 ?

Commissioner Daly said that he was extremely pleased with the way that the lieutenant conducted the class.

Mrs Ladenburg Needs SIT, ODD for Girl's Education Abroad. NEW YORK, , Nov 16-Mrs Emily Ladenburg, widow of Adolph Laden-burg, the banker, and one of the moat noted horsewomen in the Meadowbrook eolbny, applied to the courts yesterday for an allowance of from $19,000 to $17,000. a year to complete the educatioa of her 16-year-old daughter in Europa Decision was reserved. According to the application made by Mrs Ladenburg to Surragate Jackson at Mmeola, a young woman who has been brought up in the Meadowbrook set as her daughter, Eugenia Marie, cannot be properly finished abroad except by an outlay of thousands of dollars annually. Two, three or even four years abroad are usually considered necessary for the "finishing" process. This means establishment in Paris and perhaps one in, London also. It means a maid and perhaps governesses. It means music, painting, dancing under the tuition of the best and most expensive teachers obtainable. It means the acquisition of French and other modem languages. It means riding, driving and swimming lessons, gymnasium instruction and a thousand and one other accomplishments. Then there is the cost of a wardrobe, gowns for morning, afternoon anl evening. There are riding habits and horses, and other horses for driving and harnesses and carrie.ges. Then the "grand tour," so the bud" may be able to talk intelligently of all the well known places, at least, op the continent. Then there is tell outfit for the debut, and Paris dressmakers patronized by wealthy Americans are not noted for moderate charges. Mrs Ladenburgs estimate, compared with the allowances for other daughters of the rich, seems even modest. Mrs Ava Wilhng Astor has an income of more than $80,000 a year, and half of it Is supposed to be spent on her daughter, Muriel, who is 10 years old. Ethel Harriman, daughter of Mrs J. Borden Harriman, has her own stables at the Harriman estate in Westchester and a suite of rooms of her own in each of the Harriman houses. The two little daughters of Frank Gould, Helen and Dorothy, have $40,000 a year for -their expenses. Miss Ladenburg has an income of $21,000 from the estate of her father, who was lost at sea in 1896. NATIONAL GRANGE, P. OF H. Opening of Annual Convention in Atlantic City -Outlook for Lively Contest Over Control. ATLANTIC CITY. N J. Nov 16 With several thousand members from all parts of the country In attendance, the national grange. Patrons of Husbandry, opened its annual convention on the steel pier here today. Many matters of importance to the grangers will bo considered, among which will be that of representation. A lively tim9 over the control of the national grange is in prospect- The farmers are divided into two camps, the insurgents and the standpatters. The former assert that the present administration of the grange is closely affiliated politically with so-called republican standpatters in many states. Among those who are leading the insurgents in their efforts to gain control of the national body are William T. Creasey, worthy master of the Pennsylvania grange; George P. Hampton of New York, M. B. Kegler of Washington state and J. W. Holme of Michigan. The work of the grange during the past year will be outlined m the annual address of National Grange Master Is. J. Batehelder of New Hampshire. The tariiy and the high cost of living, together with the charges that the farmer is partly accountable for tTie latter, will receive the attention of the delegates. PLANS NORWOOD HOSPITAL Business Association Finds Senti ment Strong In Favor Would In clude Walpole and Westwood. NORWOOD, Nov 16 A meeting of the committee appointed by the Norwood business association to iook into the matter of a town hospital was held last evening, and the chairman, Janies M. Folan, gave out a statement to the Globe representative in which he said: Ihe sentiment throuijiout the community in lavor of tne establishment of a hospital is developing beyond tne most hopeful expectations of the committee. "It is the desire of the committee to embrace in this proposition not alone Norwood, but also Walpole and West-wood, and to invite those communities to cooperate with us in this commendable and charitable undertaking. The committee does not expect or desire that the maintenance of such an institution should bo borne exclusively by the people of wealth, but desires anl expects the cordial and generous cooperation financially of every person In the community benefited. The thiee communities above mentioned have in round numbers 15,000 Inhabitants, which means about 4000 male adults of 21 or over. A donat'on from each of the 40w males of $1 50 each annuali wi'l be sufficient for the proper maintenance of tlie instituton. "The committee has complete confidence in the generosity and pubHo spirit of the people composing tne towns to warrant it in saying that th hospital Is an assured thing. What Is left for the oo nnmlee to do Is to find the best method of bringing this about,-and that will reouire some time and a great deal of serious consideration, also the advice and counsel of those wtn have experience In like undertakings. The committee desires to extend Us most grateful appreciation to the di -tors of Norwood for their hearty cooperation with the committee in accomplishing so much. ; f 1 i 1
