New York, Feb. 26. President Elect
Taf t completed his cabinet today "with
the offer of tho treasury portfolio and
its acceptance. That tho offer was
mado to and accepted by Franklin Mac
Veagh, of Chicago, ia aa near a posi
tive statement of what is believed to
be the fact as may be made in the face
of an absolute refusal of Mr. Taft to
throw any light on the situation.
Mr. Taft justified his silence on tne
ground that he declared some time ago
that ho would give out no information
regarding the makeup of his cabinet
until he was ready to announce it in
In spite of strong belief that Mr.
MacVeagh had accepted the portfolio,
it was reported that the name of A. B.
Hepburn, of New York, ex-controller
of the currency, had figured largely in
the conference on the subject. It is
assumed that, should anything elimi
nate Mr. MacVeagh from the list, Mr.
Hepburn would bo selected.
Mr. Taft's request brought Frank H.
Hitchcock from Washington early to
day, and the two were in lengthy con
James H. Sheffield, president of the

Taft's promise to come hero and ad

The inaugural address of Mr. Taft
received it- final revision today The
document is a declaration of the poli
cies which the new administration will
endeavor to carry out.
The address contains, approximately,
5,000 words, and will occupy little
short of an hour in its delivery. The
address has been submitted not only to
the men who have accepted places in
the Taft cabinet, and in each case re
ceived their hearty approval, but Mr
Taft also has read the paper to Mr.
Roosevelt and others of his personal
friends and advisers. It is pronounced
a strong state paper.
