Kiccardo Ricci, known the world

age of 51 years. Death came to the
famcus musician at his apartments in
Albuquerque, where he had resided
for the past year, coming here from

battle ot life. He Is survived by a
wife who was at his bedside when
the end came. The remains have
been taken in charge by Undertaker
A. Borders, who will ship them to the
old home of the deceased in Wheel

CHIEF OF STAFF.
Washington, D. ('.. Nov. 16. The
announcement of ihe early retirement
of General Chaffee from the office of
Chief of Staff has created much com
ment in the military service, and has
called attention to the fact that in
the coining year there will probably
be as many as four different officers
serving in that capacity. Gen. Chaf
fee will be succeeded by Gen. J. C.
Bates, who will be followed by Gen. H.
C. Corbin, who In turn will give way
to Gen. Arthur McArthur, according
to the present plans. This rapid suc
cession In the principal military of
fice has its effect upon the military
administration, and the president is

better, on many accounnts, for the
chief of staff to have a longer term
than a few months.
General McArthur will probably
servo two or three years anil will then
bo succeeded by General Leonard
Wood, who intends to remain in the
Philippines until he returns to Wash
