ROOSEVELT MEN ARE
FACING A CONTEST
Oversight of Republican National Committee, in Failing
to Take Account of Primary Election Law, Opens the
Way for a Contesting Minnesota Delegation—Joel

Minnesota Republicans are more than

the selection of delegates from Minne
sota to the national convention, which
meets in Chicago next June.
The worry comes from the fact that
the peculiar predicament in which
Minnesota Republicans find themselves

CHICAGO. Jan. 17.—Members of
Chicago's police force, numbering 300
and including patrolmen and officers of
rank in the force, met today and
launched an organization to be known
as the Policemen's Progressive asso
ciation. Its principal object, it is stated,
will be the protection of its members
against charges made by criminals and
thieves, evidence having been given by
the latter to a former "graft" investi

the discharge of policemen. The po-

unjust and after denouncing the "graft"

THE ST. PAUL GLOBE
was not presented to the committee.
As a result of this neglect, some harsh
things are being said about ttie Min
neapolis lumber king by the Roosevelt
Republicans of the state.
Secretly the anti-Roosevelt Republi
cans of the state, who recognize the
position in which the state has been
placed by the wording of the call, are
overjoyed, and plans are said to be
already under way to prevent the
Roosevelt faction securing an instruct
ed delegation to the convention.
On the other hand, the administra
tion leaders are charging that the
clause providing for the manner of
selecting delegates from a state using
the direct, primary law was purposely
omitted by the national committee,
and these charges are backed by citing
the fact that the catl was drawn by

ST. PAUL MEN WHO FACE DEATH IN CAVE
■ %&& ;!^W^^^^HE::... : ;
Special to The Globe.
LOUISVILLE, Ky., Jan. 17.—Strug
gling in the icy waters of Echo river,
in the blackest depth of Mammoth
cave, eighteen delegates to the Na
tional League of Commission Mer
chants had a narrow escape from death
yesterday afternoon. All were thrown
from a boat into the water, which was
eighteen feet deep, and many lives
would have been lost but for the brav
ery and strength of Charles A. Muehl
bronner, and the coolness of all the
men and women in the boat.
Eighteen men and women who went
inspecting the cave were in a small
rowboat crossing the river when the
water began to flow into one end and
in a few moments the boat had filled
and began to sink. It sank, but not
until a place where the bank offered a
foothold enabling the people to climb
out of the water and reach a place of
safety had been reached.
The following persons, beside the
guide, were in the boat, and were
thrown into the water: Edward Tub
besing and Mr. and Mrs. J. W. Fille
brown, St. Paul; W. J. Harris, Chicago;
Mr. and Mrs. G. S. Weile, Cincinnati;
L. S. Owens, Chicago; Frank E. Wag-
SENATE PLANS AN
Republican Majority Preparing
to Take Up Panama Canal
Treaty at Once.
WASHINGTON, D. C, Jan. 17.—1t
is the Intention of the senate to begin
the week by again taking up the reso
lutions having In view an Inquiry Into
the conduct of the postofflce depart
ment and it is the general understand
ing that they will be referred to the
committee on postoffices after compar
atively brief debate. Senator Hale,
who has general charge of the reso
lutions, will make a brief statement
concerning them and will probably be
followed by Senator Gorman. It is ex
pected that Senator Spooner will add
to his previous remarks on this sub
ject but his statement may be post
poned until later in the session.
It is the hope of the Republican sen
ators that the postofflce inquiry reso
lution may be temporarily disposed of
before the close of Monday's session
and in this event discussion of the
Panama canal subject will be contin
ued Tuesday and probably during the
remainder of the week. It ia likely,
however, that before the close of the
week the debate will be transferred
from open senate to executive session,
as it is the purpose of the Republican
majority to insist on taking up the
canal treaty as soon as it shall be re
ported from the committee on foreign
relations, which has had it under con
sideration for the past few weeks. The
Republican members of the committee
hope to report the treaty early in the
week. Discussion on the treaty is ex
pected to last a month or more.
One Appropriation Bill a Week.
WASHINGTON, D. C, Jan. 17.—An
appropriation bill a week will be the
record attempted^ by the house until
the supply measures are out of the
way. The urgent deficiency measure
will come from the committee about
the middle of the week and will be
disposed of without delay. The army
bill will be ready for action by the
house before the end of the week.
The house has set apart Monday for
the consideration of matters relating
to the District of Columbia and Friday
for the passage of private pension
bills. It is not unlikely that the Hep
burn pure food bill will be called up
Tuesday. This measure, which was
passed by the house during the last
congress, was reported from committee
last Saturday and may be the subject
of discussion Tuesday and Wednesday.
Bills on the calendar and subject to
be called up when opportunity arises,
Include the following:
To provide a delegate to congress
from Porto Rico; to provide transpor
tation from Porto Rico for the public
school teachers of that island to at
tend the summer schools of the United
States; to construct a- revenue cutter
for use in Albermarle and Pimlico
sounds; to reimburse a cable company
for damages sustained during the war
with Spain; to create a public park of
the petrified forests of Arizona, and a
bill to codify the criminal laws of the

The party visiting the cave left the
bank to go across the river. The roof
of the cave over the river is arched and
the space in the center above the wa
ter is only two and a half feet. It wais
only that much on account of a riSe in
the river. In order to run the boat
through it was necessary for the men
and women in the boat to bend low.
Even then their backs and heads touch
ed in places.
As the boat was about half way be
tween the two landings it swerved to
one side, raking the heads of the per
sons who were on the side of the bbat
next to the bank. These leaned far
ther forward to escape' striking their
heads. The action caused the weight
in the boat to shift, throwing it too
much to one side. This lowered one end
of the boat and the water began to
flow in rapidly. As It filled the boat
settled and this caused the water to
flow in faster.

SIOUX FALLS, S^ D. Jan. 17.—Mrs.
E. J. McNeil, ,wife of a well known
Klngsbury county farmer, has just re

to quite an interesting little story.
Years ago, when Mrs. McNeil was a
little girl and lived with her parents
in the East, the pastor of the church
which she attended borrowed the sum
of $6 from her father.
She knew nothing of this until she
received the draft. This was accompa

to send her a draft for $20, being the
principal of $6 and Interest amounting
to $14 which had accumulated upon it.

J. WALTER FILLEBROWN.
The guide saw the danger and called
to Mr. Muehlbronner to jump out of the
boat and take the chain attached to
one end. This he did, landing on a
steep bank, which offered only a slight
foothold. Lying down on hi 9 face,
he held to the chain and pulled the
boat close to the side of the bank.
It was the only place where the
landing could have been made, as from
that point to the starting point the
roof comes down to the water's edge
and no space is left to allow a foot
hold. The water where the boat finally
sank was eight feet deep, but farther
back, where there was no landing, the
water was eighteen feet deep. Had
the accident occurred there nothing
could have saved them from drowning.
Every person in the cr^wd, including
the five women, kept perfectly cool

BOLD THIEF RAIDS
Disguised as Workman Man
Enters Sacred Heart Insti

Special to The Globe.
DULUTH, Minn., Jan. 17.—What Is
believed by the police to be the boldest
daylight robbery ever committed in this
city was executed today by one man
working in the constant danger of dis
covery by any one of twenty-five peo
ple at the institute of the Sacred Heart
Disguised as an electrician repairing
the wlreß the thief, who gave his name
as Welch, got away with negotiable
checks amounting to $627 and $100
The robbery of St. Mary's hospital
was first contemplated by the thief,
but the premises were so carefully
watched that he abandoned the attempt
after three different visits. Welch ap
peared at the institute clad in a me
chanic's " working suit and walked
through the halls as though accustomed
to the place. One of the nurses ac
costed him on the landing of the sec
ond floor and asked him his business.
He said he was an electrician em
ployed by the Duluth General Electric
company. He carried a pair of plyers
and occasionally turned a light on and
off, examining it critically.
While he waa still at work the din
ner bell sounded and the rooms and
halls were practically deserted within
fifteen minutes. The thief then en
tered the secretary's office on the sec
ond floor and working among some
books and boxes under a ladles' writing

a negotiable check for $600, another for

Important Reform in Church
Music instituted by Plus X.
ROME, Jan. 17.—One of the most im
portant of the reforms in church mu
sic instituted by Pope Pius X., and one
that will affect American churches, is
that absolutely excluding women sing
ers from the churches.
The soprano and alto parts are to be
sung by little boys, and all the mem
bers of the choir are to be arrayed in
cassock and surplice, and concealed be
hind a grating. '
Special Gregorian schools, it is fur
ther provided, are to be instituted in
every Catholic college and seminary.
Contrary to statements which have
been made in the United States that the
reforms in church music as decreed by
Pius X. would affect only France and
Italy, it will be interesting to know that
two decrees were issued by the Vati
can, one of the form of a letter to Car
dinal Respighi, the vicar general, and
the other intended for the world at
Cardinal Cretoni, prefect of the in
dulgences, has issued a note, which is
to be sent to all the churches of the
world, in which they are authorized to
continue the use of-the music at pres

sible to substitute the Gregorian chant.

PEACE IN FAR EAST NOW
(Negotiations Have Now Arrived at a Stage Leaving
Two Points Upon Which (Neither Russia INor Japan
Is Inclined to Yield—Situation Critical in Seoul-
Japan Wants Peace, but Is Ready for War.
LONDON, Jan. 18.—In what It claims
is an authoritative statement, the
Daily Graphic this morning announces
that the negotiations have arrived at
a stage leaving two points upon which
neither Russia nor Japan is inclined to
yield, and as to which no means of a
compromise have yet been found. Both
these points concern Manchuria, and
their acceptance would not in the
slightest modify the legal status quo or
change the administrative situation in
Manchuria, but Japan insists that they
be embodied in a.treaty between Japan
and Russia, while Russia, as a matter
of amour propre, refuses to accept such
dictation at the hands of Japan. Much
however, is still hoped from the czar's
"Of course, any attempt of Russia to
increase very largely her naval forces
in the far East by moving her Black
sea or Baltic fleets would make war a
question of only a few hours."
This statement seems to be borne
out by the dispatch from Toklo yes

sia's communication saying that Rus
sia would respect the rights and privi
leges already acquired by the powers in
Manchuria under the existing treaties
