TREASURER NOT SELECTED
President's Secretary to.- Resign
White House Office, but It Is
Regarded as Unlikely Suc
cessor Will Be Named.
WASHINGTON. July 9. Charles D.
Hilles, President Taffs secretary, was
chosen today for chairman of the Re
publican National Committee. This
was a surprise,, as" when the commit
tee adjourned last night It was
thought Mr. Hilles had practically
eliminated himself from consideration
for the place because of his disinclin
ation to take Jt.
Before the committeemen went to
the White House today it was said the
Western members had decided to stand
for the appointment of a man who
would be approved by the Western
Wll llama to Direct la Wrat.
Headquarters of the National com
mittee are to be opened in New York
the first of next week. The opening
of a Middle West headquarters at Chi
cago and a Pacific Coast headquar
ters at Portland. Or., were considered
and practically decided upon. Ralph
E. Williams, former Republican Na
tional committeeman for Oregon, was
practically selected to take charge of
the Far Western offices.
The election of Hilles took place at a
downtown hotel, at which the sub
committee met after a brief conference
with Mr. Taft.
Charles B. Warren. National com
mitteeman from Michigan, made the
motion to make Mr. Hilles' selection
unanimous. He was appointed a com
mittee of one to notify Mr. Hilles and
bring htm into the conference at once
with the ub-commlttee to decide on
the other officers of the National com
mittee. Reyaolda Made Secretary.
James B. Reynolds, now a member
of the Tariff Board, was chosen secre
tary of the National committee.
Chairman Hilles and the full Na.
tlonal committee will met July 19 at
New York to appoint a treasurer,
other officers, an executive committee
and an advisory committee.
Otto Bannard, of New York; Charles
G. Dawes and David R. Forgan. of
Chicago; John Wanamaker, of Phila
delphia: E. F. Swlnney, of Kansas
City, and John Hays Hammond,
Washington, were considered for treas
urer, but no decision was Teach ed.
Mr. Hilles will resign his office as
secretary to the President Saturday.
It Is thought unlikely that Mr. Taft
will appoint a successor. He prob
ably will turn the business of the
executive offices over to the two as
sistant secretaries. Rudolph .;Forster
and Sherman Allen.
Hillra laeaea Statement.
Mr. Hilles Issued a statement to
night declaring the confidence of the
party in its cause and its candidates.
"The Republican party approaches
the Presidential campaign with con-
AXama In thn anlpmflltv Of its CaUSS
and in the integrity and ability of the
i..ntfi( whn ranresent that cause.
Progress with order is as good doctrine
today for the Republican party as ii
ho. K.An ilnfA the daVB of its birth.
"Real progress is not a theory but
an achievement. No American citizen
should be deceived into an exchange of
his birthright for a vision. The
progress of the Nation toward better
things does not come from declama
tion, but from actual results. More has
hen arcomnllshed in the last three
veur under the Administration of
i.A-i.i.T.t Tat than waa fiver before ac
complished by an American President
in the same time.

tween the Republican party and the
Democratic party is revealed in the

progress through a record achievement:
