ST. PETERSBURG, May 20.— Vice

supreme naval command in tho Pacific,
will leave for Vladivostok on May 25
to assume charge there and make pre
parations for repairing and refitting
tho vessels of Vice Admiral Rojest
vensky'B fleet when they arrive.
By imperial command, Vice Admiral
Blrlleff will have all the rights nnd
powers of a commander of the nrmy,
and the commander of the Vladivostok
garrison will be subject to his orders,
thereby avoiding the possibility of any
conflict of authority in case of siege,
such as happened at Port Arthur.
"I have no intention of relieving Vice
Admiral Rojestvensky of the immedi
ate command of the fleet If he is well
and able to perform his duties on his
arrival at Vladivostok," said tho ad
miral, who is small of stature and
scant of hair, but keen and alert in
bearing. "I have a high respect for

CRITICISES THE POWERS
Russia Calls Attention to Danger From
By Associated rrers.
ST. PETERSBURG, May I!).— Tho
Russian newspapers call attention to
the indifference with which the powers
contemplate the clanger involved in
navigating far eastern waters owing to
the Japanese floating mines, and con
trast this with the harsh criticism
passed earlier In the war when the
Russians planted mines outside of Port
Arthur. The Novoe Vremya says: "Al
though seven ships were blown up dur
ing the last fortnight, the British press,
so vigilant wherever the seas are con
cerned, does not litter a word of re
proach against its ally."
ROADS STILL IMPASSABLE
But Weather Improving and Japanese
Eager to Take Offensive

GUNSHU PASS, May 10.— The weath
er has cleared and the roarla washed
out hy the rpcent rains are impassable
quagmires, but they will soon dry. The
present truce is expected to be broken
by the Japanese. They are showing
every evidences of preparation to assume
the offensive, constantly shifting posi
tions and pressing, the Russian left, on
which the cavalry forces are dally ex
The demonstrations on the .Russian
left, however, are probably only a feint
to cover the real stroke at the right.
This is thought more probable because
of the care with which the Japanese
are screening the movements on their
right, using Chinese bandits freely for
this purpose. The attempts of the Rus
sian scouts to pierce the curtain have
not been successful.
Profit ins by past experience, a new
system for transportation of wounded
men from the battlefield by means of
puck horses has been organized. .Ex
periments have shown good results.

NATIONAL ASSOCIATION DEALS
SANITARY DETAILS DEBATED
Subject Handled Both in Its Technical
and Social Aspects, and Lax
Enforcement of Laws
By Associated Tress.
WASHINGTON, May 19.— The Xn
tinnal association for the study and
prevention of tuberculosis today dis
cussed many phases of treatment and
sociological problems entering Into the
questions constituting the objects of
the association. The pathological sec
tion, of the association confined Its
■work to the strictly technical features
embraced under this head. The socio
logical section considered a symposium
of arguments relating to sanitary treat
One of the points of Interest hrouKht
out In this discussion was that every
effort so far made to establish self
supporting communities or settlements
of tuberculosis patients had proved a
failure. It was the general opinion
that all cases of tuberculosis should be
allowed to remain at large wheie
proper care of the patient was main
tained and proper sanitary require
ments observed to protect members of
the family in which the patient resided.
Nowhere except in New York is there
legal authority to compel the reten
tion of a patient against his will. Such
authority, it was argued, was most de
Found Plenty of Evidence
Speaking of the lax enforcement of
the sanitary regulations by municipali
ties, Dr. J. P. C. Foster of New Haven
said he arrived at the Boston station
one night at 12 o'clock. On all of the
station walls he observed large signs
stating that $100 was the fine for ex
pectorating on the floor. On the floor
were enough evidences of the violation
of this law to support, with the col
lected penalty, a state Institution. Ills
conclusion was that either such lawn
should not be enacted or that they
should be enforced.
The afternoon session of the socio
logical association was devoted to two
papers, one entitled "Progress of the
Sanitarium Movement in America," by
Wm. H. Baldwin of Washington, E>. C,
and the other "Infection in Transpor
tation," by Dr. 11. 11. Bracken of St.

After a night spent in conference the

the local managers of the express com
panies that if they went on strike with
out grievances of their own not one
of them would ever again be employed
by the express companies. Tonight,
after extended conference, the follow
ing terms were announced by the Em

ception <if that relating to the express
drivers, accepted by the Teamsters:
That the teamsters should recognize
the integrity and permanency of the
Kmployers' Teaming company, which in

pledged to the policy of the open shop.
That the drivers of the express com
panies abide by the declarations of the
companies for the forfeiture of their
positions when they struck.
That all the desirable non-union men
shall be retained and that no discrim
ination shnll be practiced against union
men in filling vacancies, save that men
who have been guilty of lawlessness
during the strike shall not be re-em
The teamsters' executive committee
at 2 o'clock this morning declared that
the strike would not be called off un
less something was done for the ex
press drivers. The managers of the
express companies said they would do
nothing beyond referring the matter to
the general managers of their respec

ONLY FIVE IN 100
SUCCEED IN BUSINESS
And Franklin MacVeagh Would Will.
Ingly See the Remaining. 95
Special to The llernld>
CHICAGO, May 13.— Frnnklln Mac-
Veagh told the Physicians' club that
he was willing to see the 95 per cent, of
business men who fulled chloroformed
to satisfy the Oslerltes.
. Th«i subject for consideration- was,
"When Shall We He Chloroformed?"
Mr.' MacVeakh was replying 1 to the
question, "When Shall the Business
Man Shuffle Off?"
"I am willing to weed out the 95 per
cent of Incompetents to Osier In order
to save thut 5 per cent who are fitted j
to survive," he said. "Only 5 per cent
of the men who embark in business
succeed; 95 per cent fail. I did not. j
make the world; I am not responsible
that the 96 per cent, like Richard 111,
came 'half made up' Into the world, j
They cannot meet the competition, but j
perhaps they would have done well asj
college professors." !
Mr. MacVeagh seemed to take se
riously the Osier program, which his
fellow speakers treated facetiously. He
vindicated old men by the example of
the conquering Japanese, whose em
peror, generals, statesmen, thinkers, all
are old men, while the Russian czar is

WASHINGTON, May I.— Paul Mor
ton, secretary of the navy department,
will retire from the cabinet on July 1
if President Roosevelt can bo Induced
to accept his resignation.
Morton will be succeeded in the navy
department by Secretary Metcalf of
the department of commerce and labor.
It was understood lost summer, when
Morton and Metcalf were appointed,
that the president wanted Morton to
take the head of the department of
commerce and labor, but that he de
clined. The offer wai not made direct
to Metcalf for the navy portfolio, but
it was understood U»at the president
had assured him that at the proper
time he would be appointed to the head
of the navy department If he would
accept the more onerous and distaste
ful task of completing the organization
of the commerce and labor department.
On this understanding the president
secured the services of both men,
which was his great desire at that
time. Secretary MilcalC would find
much more congenial work, of course,
in the navy department, as he is fa
miliar with naval affairs by reason of
his long- service on the house naval
Metcalf's successor in the department
of commerce and labor has not been
definitely settled, but the chances favor
Commissioner Garfield of the bureau
of corporations. He is a close friend
of the president, who believes he is one
of the coming men of the country.
