Makes His Annual Report to
FLANS FOR AGRICULTURE DEPT.
Secretary Propose to Carry Out Work
in Hit Department in Six Groups.
Give Hi Idea on Good Road.
Reorganization ot the department
of agriculture is foreshadowed in Sec
retary Houston's first annual report
presented to President Wilson.
A plan to be submitted to congress
In the fiscal estimate for 1916 pro
poses to carry out the work of the de
partment in five or six main groups,
such as tesearch, state relations, rural
organization, forest service, weathet
and regulation. Such a plan, Secre
lary Houston believes, will promote
Free distribution of seeds by con
gressmen should be discontinued, the
secretary recommends. He would
conduct In Its stead a constructive
work In securing and distributing new
seeds and plants.
Conditions vary widely in the Unit
ed States, says the report, because
farmers do not equally need better
credit arrangements and all sections
are not similarly circumstanced. It
contends that, when all necessary al
lowance has been made for funda
mental factors. It. Is probably clear
that the rural communities are not
as efficiently served as they should be
by existing financial arrangements.
Plans for redisricting the country
for the enforcement of the pure food
law are announced and the secretary
announces his Intention to ask for
authority to prepare amendments" to
the pure food law to Improve the food
supply, protect the public health and
promote uniformity In food legislation.
The secretary, believes there does
not appear to be need for unique or
special legislation or for legislation
which shall aim to give the farmer
credit on easier terms than other
members of society. What Is needed
Is the creation of conditions and ma
chinery which shall enable him on
similar credit foundations to secure
money at the same rates as those that
prevail for other classes and for other
"Even though the problem of how
the farmer can best sell Ills produce
and can secure the necessary capital
were solved there would still remain
vital things to be accomplished be
fore rural life can be made fully ef
ficient, profitable, healthful, pleasur
able and attractive, and before a
larger disposition to remain on the
farm develops. Good roads are pre
requisite for better marketing, for bet
ter schools and for more comfortable
rural living. Better sanitation and
hygiene In the home. In the school
and In the community are just as vital
for the rural community as for the
urban," says the report.
Further along the report reads:
"To gain Information to enable the
department better to serve rural wo
men the secretary has addressed let
ters of inquiry to the women of 55.000
selected farms covering every county.
Other surveys and studies were also
conducted. Analysis of the small pa-t
of the letters as yet digested shows
that farm women desire assistance In
all phases of home management.
"Others ak the department to prove
to the man that their work Is worth
something In dollars and cents. The
overwork of women and children and
difficulty of securing domestic help are
mentioned by a number of the
writers.' T''e department believes that
Intelligent help to women In mattei3
of home management will contribute
directly to the agricultural success of
As to federal aid for good roads
the secretary says the federal govern
ment should deal with the state as the
lowest unit through an expert hlch
way commissioner as Its agency. The
plan should provide for maintenance
as well as construction.
Preferenco should be given to the
lmproveme.it of roads over which
products from the fnrnis can be taken
to the nearest railway station. A
scheme of road construction and main
tenance within a stats should be, da
veloped and mutually agreed upon.
Money appropriated by the federal
government should be apportioned on
the basis of such factors as total
population, farm population, area, tax
able valuation and mileage.

Washington, Dec. 9. President Wil

connection with the proposed woman
suffrage amendment to the United
Marching by twos and fours, with
banners afloat, the suffragists were
ushered into the president's private
office. Dr. Anna Howard Shaw sum
marized their appeal.
"I want you ladles," said the presi
dent, "if I can make It clear to you,
to realize just what my present situ
"Whenever I walk abroad 1 am not
a free man; I am under arrest. I am
so carefully and admirably guarded
that I have not even the privilege of
walking the streets alone. Tint is
typical of my present transference
from a private Individual to being an
official of a great government, and,
incidentally, spokesman of a party.
"I set myself this strict rule when
I was governor of New Jersey and
shall follow 't as president that I am
not at liberty to urge upon congress
in messages, polities which have not
had the crgpnic consideration of those
for whom I am spokesman.
"In other words, I have not yet pre
sented to any legislature my private
views on any subject, and I never
shall, because I conceive that to be
part of the whole process of govern
ment that I shall be spokesman for
somehody, not for my"lf. It would
he an Impertinence. When I spetik
for myself I hid an in l I idual. when
I am spokesman of an org.niir body
I am a representative.
"For that reason, you see, I am by
my own principles shut out, in the
language of the street, from 'starting
anything.' I have to confine myself
to those things whl-h have been em
bodied as promises to the people at
an election. That is the strict rule I
set for myself.
"I want to say that with regard to
all other matters, I am not only glad
to be consulted by my colleagues in
the two houses, but I hope they will
often pay me the compliment of con
sulting me when they want to know
my opinion on any subject.
"One member of the rules commit
tee did come to me and ask me what
I thought about this suggestion of
yours of appointing a special commit
tee of the house as the sennte has al
ready appointed a special committee
for the consideration of woman's suf
frage, and I told him that I thought
It was a proper tiling to do. So, thnt
so far as my personal advice lias been
asked it has been given to that effect."
Pr. Anna Shaw asked:
"Since we are members of nn
political party, who Is to speak for
us if we do not speak for ourselves?"
"You do that very admirably," re
marked the president and the entire
assemblage joined in a laugh.
Pr. Shaw expressed the view later
that the president's interview was
"It was all that we could ask for,"
she said. "He Is in favor of a com
mittee of the house: that was our
chief purpose In coming to see him."
EUROPE WAITS ON WILSON.
Apparently Foreign Governments Are
Weary of Mexican Policy.
Washington advices indicate that
rertain foreign governments have
reached the conclusion that the Unit
ed States Is again contemplating
recognition of the Constitutionalists
as a step toward a solution of the
Mexican problem and eliminating IIu
erta. There Is some reason to believe,
however, that this Idea of other inter
ested governments is In part due to
their intense desire that the United
States do something to bring relief to
Their Impatience at the "watch and
wait" policy is well known and It is
understood there has been no hesita
tion on their part In making this
feeling known to the United States.
The result has been a sort of Indirec t
pressure on the administration to do
something to solve the difficulty in
Recognition of the Constitutional
ists lias appeared to some Kuropean
diplomatists as the net likely mov.i
of President Wilson as long as their
government adheres to Its policy of
acting only Indirectly upon lliierta.
No confirmation of the reported in
tention to recognize the Constitution
alists could he obtained here. It is
regarded as likely, however, that some
steps will be taken to assist the
revolutionists short of actual recog
