Da\ is of West Virginia the solicitor general. TAFT AMBITIOUS. Former President Taft is known to have had a.n ambition to round out his career as a justice on the highest court oC the land Whether he still cherish- that ambition Is not known here. W h e n It was reported last winter that Justice Lurton was about to retire, It was suggested that Mr T a f t might be c f f e r e d the place, but It was stated at the White House that Ms name had not been mentioned Ir o f f i c i a l circles it not thought l i k e t h a t the president 111 appoint a member of the cabinet because of his desire to go through his term without a change in official family. ONLY TVTO DEMOCRATS. Before the death of Justice Lurton, the supreme court was made up of six Republicans and three Democrats. By his death the Democratic representation on the bench is reduced to two- Chief Justice White and Associate Justice Lamar Tnder the circumstances It is thought likely that the president will name a Democrat for the vacancy. Furthermore it has been an unwritten rule In the senate, which must confirm the nomination, that the minority represenattion shall no t fall below three at any time. APPOINTMENT SOON. Washington, July 13. -- President Wilson t o d a v denied that there was anv conflict betneen him and the senate over the n o m i n a t i o n ? of Paul Warburg and Thomas D.

Frank H Poses- of Palmyra, Mo. appraiser of merchandise, district of St. Louis II. Hi! Kewport, R I., July 13 --"How" the nation's foreign policy often hangs upon the action and discretion of a naval officer commanding a warship in a faraway port,'' was dicusaed by Secretary Daniels here today at the opening of the Naval War College session. He pictured the duties of the naval in the role of diplomat, recalled incidents In which commanders of American warships in foreign ports had opened new chapters In American history, and urged officers at the college and marine officers to tram themselves in international law and the languages in preparation for euch emergencies. "The navy, In the technical diplomatic sense," said the secretary, "must leave to the department of state the settlement of internal policies, and properly EO. But, In the practical operations of policies a f f e c t i n g - other nations, the action of the youngest naval officer commanding the smallest, vessel in a foreign porL m i g h t determine the action of our government. Independent of the policies which the trained diplomats might have planned. MUCH DANGER. "If he be u n i n f o r m e d as to the requirements of international law. what consequences of evil may flow from his ignorance. If he lack tact and a sense of courtesy, how he may block the path of his c o u n t r y to serve the people to xvhom he is sent and prevent the opening doors through which his countrymen might enter to promote commerce, f r i e n d l i n e s s and amity." BRYAN TRUSTS THEM. There has been no secretary of state, Mr. Daniels said, who had availed h i m self more of the service of the naval officer as a diplomat, "who has shown greater confidence in his ability, his j u d g m e n t and his absolute trustworthiness," thn had Secretary Bryan. RECALLS MATO INCIDENT. He recalled the demand made for a salute of the Stars and Stripes by Admiral Mao at Tampico as an example of how action of a naval officer in a foreign country precipitated "An Issue not contemplated in diplomatic channels, and irrevocably committed his government to a policy of action in support of hie demand."
