President hoovers program for reorganization of the Federal government is being absolutely blocked by the House democrats who intend that or. Roosevelt shall be empowered to make such changes As he thinks fit after his inauguration. This development angered the president and on his return from Florida he told the correspondents that All recent reorganization moves on the part of con Gress were merely make believe and the proposals of the democratic Lead Ere a backward step. He asserted that any real reorganization a sensibly carried out will sooner or later embrace the very executive orders which he issued lately and which the democrats in the House planned to veto.

Specifications and conditions of contract on file at commissioners office. Right to reject any and All bids is reserved. Andy Anderson w. H. Halpenny. T. F. Hungiville. Attest county commissioners r. Walker clerk Washington. D. C., Jan. 9�?president-elect Roosevelt is already making his influence Felt in Washington. Everything was set for the enactment of a general manufacturers sales tax Law with both the Republican administration and the democrats in Congress in favor of it when word came from Albany that or. Roosevelt had different ideas and that killed it. The belief is growing Here however. That there will yet be same cooperation. That belief is strengthened by the fact that Norman h Davis who has been or. Hoovers principal emissary in Europe spent several Days in conference with or. Roosevelt. Or. Davis is a Democrat and an admirer and supporter of the incoming president. He is understood to have Given or. Roosevelt a comprehensive picture of the european situation and the necessity for Early action not Only in the matter of consideration of the War debts but also the disarmament conference and the International monetary conference. Firm on debt stand political Washington Hasni to receded a bit from the attitude held by both Republican and democratic leaders that there can be no cancellation of the War debts owing by Europe to America. That there will have to be some revision of terms perhaps in some cases a reduction of the interest rate perhaps in other cases an arrangement which will Benefit american Industry in return for concessions. Is quite generally admitted Washington is still applauding Secretary Stimson a reply to the inquiry transmitted from the new Premier of France through ambassador Edge. The head of the French government asked the ambassador to find out from his government what Steps were necessary to open up the discussion of distribution. Or Edge passed the question on to the state department and or. Stimson replied in effect a the first necessary step is for France to us that $19,000,000 that was due on december 15th. After they have paid that then we will talk about the rest of the French government is very much concerned Over the effect in America of its failure to if is not going too far to say that England s Stock is higher than it has been in Many years. And Frances is lower. Reports received by the foreign Trade Bureau of the department of Commerce indicate that something like a National Boycott against French goods is being promoted among the women of America that Many millions of dollars of orders for French garments ladies underwear and the like have been cancelled and that the tourist travel to Fiance has been sharply reduced no elaborate inaugural or. Roosevelt insists upon simplicity in connection with his inauguration he has said that this is no time for the states to spend immense sums sending in National guard troops to take part in an inaugural Parade and that he does no to see the need of an expensive and elaborate inaugural Ball. He probably will accept an escort of the Philadelphia City troop the impressive Squadron whose Black horses and Black Horsehair plumes in their Silver helmets have been a picturesque feature of presidential inaugurations since Lincoln a time the City troop is sometimes called a the president its function has been to escort the incoming and outgoing presidents As they ride together from the White House to the Capitol and then serve As a bodyguard for the new president As he goes Back to the White House alone it is quite Likely. Washington understands that the inaugural ceremonies will consist of nothing More than the incoming president taking the oath of office on the East front of the Capitol building facing the Capitol Plaza in which a crowd of 100.000 can easily gather. The oath will be administered As usual by the chief Justice of the supreme court attired in his Robes of office and some picturesque color will be added to the scene by the Brilliant full dress uniforms of the members of the diplomatic corps and High officers of the army Navy and marines it probably will he the first time in history that one former governor of new York has sworn in another of new York As president of the United states chief Justice Hughes was governor of new York from 1907 to 1911. Look for farm veto the Domestic allotment farm Relief plan will probably be passed by Congress. And then the expectation is that it will be vetoed by president Hoover. That is expected for two or three reasons. First it is out of line with ail of his recommendations and beliefs in the matter of farm Relief. Second it is understood to be or. Roosevelt a pet measure and the presidents attitude is that he would rather have or. Roosevelt handle it if it is passed promptly and the president vetoes it it May be possible to Muster a sufficient vote in both houses to re enact it Over his veto but the Outlook is that there will not be time to do that before the present session comes to its Legal end at noon on March 4th. Where they will go Washington gossip is interested in what the High officials of the present administration Are going to do when they Are through with these jobs. The president has said that he is going to a a hibernate for a year. Secretary of state Simson will go Back to his new York City Law practice. The Secretary of the Treasury. Or. Mills who is quite wealthy May. It is said buy an important newspaper and try to have some fun with the Roosevelt administration. Pat Hurley Secretary of War. Will go Back to his Oil and real estate business in Oklahoma. It is understood Leland Stanford University wants or. Ray Wilbur. Secretary of the Interior to come Back As its president again.
