OoY«rnor-«lect Preserving Pro roundest
Reticence Concerning Any of the
Appointments He WiU Hake When
He Assumes Ship of Bt*te
T'p to the present very little can be
learned, even in the way of gossip, con
cerning the o»l>i net that Governor
Brumbaugh proposes to anoint w hen
he takes office next week, and the quid
ouncs, those wbo have heretofore pro
fessed to have had a line on prospective
cabinets, are ail at sea, and have given
up guessing. I>r. Brumbaugh is preserv
ing the profoundest reticence concern
ing any of his appointments, and ai;
conjectures are mere guesses, and noth
ing else, for he has repeatedly declared
that he will make no mention of them
until'he deems proper and even then he
will not sav when that time shall be.
The latest talk concerning the new
Governor's immediate family is that his
choice for private secretary lies be
tween James Hiatt and Harry P. Me-
Devitt. both of Philadelphia, and both
close personal friends. Mr. Hiatt had
charge of Dr. Brutrtbaiiph's preliminary
campaign for Governor and directed af
fairs from headquarters in Philadel
phia during the campaign that ended
in his election. He is secretary of the
Philadelphia Boaj-d of Education at a
salary of $5,000 per year, and as »ueh
has been very close to Dr. Brumbaugh,
who was at the head of the Philadel
phia public schools.
Mr. Devitt was formerly a Philadel
phia newspaper man, a political writer
on the "Press," and for the last four
years has had several positions requir
ing keen executive ability under the
Toner administration, the last being
chairman of the Commission on Eco
nomy and Efficiency. He personally had
charge of the Brumbaugh party on its
tour of Pennsylvania, for the reason
that his knowledge of politics and
political acquaintanceship in the
State were ins-aluable adjuncts in a
campaign of that magnitude. It is
agreed that either one of these gentle
men would make an ideal private sec
retary who would have to stand be
tween the Governor's private room an 1
the many who would be anxious to
have personal interviews with the chief
executive. A story is current that the
announcement of the entire cabinet
will be made when Dr. Brumbaugh ar
rives in Harrisburg next Monday.
Board to Meet
The Board of Revenue Commission
ers will hold a meeting to-morrow to
finish up its business under the present
Action on Appointments
_ The Senate Committee on Executive
Nominations, a new committee in
charge of the nominations n»3de by
Governor Tener, will on
next Monday evening, an!t will at once
proceed to consider the recess nomina
tions. Among these are the Public
Service Commission, and a number ot
other State officials and members of
public institution boards.
New Justice
Governor Tener to-dav appointed
Walter S. Kenney to be justice of the
jxwoe for Muhlenberg township. Berks
county, to W. G. Sarig,
meniber of the House.
