William R. Willcox former cliairmnn of the public service commission for the
First New York state district (which embraces New York City), has been ueni
e d as as cliairmnn of the republican committee to direct the campaign. Air.
"Willcox was the personal choice of Air. Hughes, and there was a report that
tbme'stnmp of approval had been put upon him by Colonel Roosevelt. Mr.
Hughes, it is understood, wanted .Mr. Wilcox because he had known Mm for
years ami had implicit faith in his judgment. Willcox was appointed by Ungu
es as chairman of the public service c mmission when Hughes was governor,
nd they have been close friends. Will cox has the added advantage of having
nerved two and one half by appointment of Colonel Koosevclt as postmnster
f New York. Of late he has practiced law and has not been closely affili
ated with politics, and, like Mr. Hughes, did not participate actively in the cam
paign of 1912.

real good in Russia ."
I put this question today to Nicholas
Tchaykovsky, member or the Central
Co-operative committee of I'etrograd
as he sat in front of his desk at com
mittee headquarters. Tried in IH07 as
a revolutionist ami acquitted he is now
doing his bit for Russia. His seusa-

Ijouglellow, surrounded as it is by
snowy beard inid lutir, became very
"Done any good!" Tie echoed, "It
has worked wonders. For one thing
it gives russia a sober peasantry and
a sobe'r peasantry means almost dou.le
working capacity. And over wl per

better farms, bigger crops, more mon
ey, better living conditions in homes,
better fed children and consequently
more rapid advance in schools, liette
children makes better men.
"it means a more progressive, more
dependable, richer Russian peasantry.
It means all that and more hcsulcs.
