LOOMIS REAPPEARS
Mystery of American Emissary
Is Removed
LONDON, June 25.—The Morning
Leader's Paris correspondent says that
the mystery concerning Kent J. Loom
is, brother of the American assistant
secretary of state, has been cleared up.
"Mr. Loomis," the dispatch says,
"appeared in Paris today (Friday) and
left this evening on his way to North
east Africa;- accompanied by Mr. Cum
mins, the son of a well known Ameri
can journalist."
Mr. Loomis was proceeding to Abys
sinia to deliver to Emperor Menelik
the recently signed commercial treaty
between the United States and Abys
sinia. The French government had
been asked to facilitate the journey of
Mr. Loomis and his caravan through
French Somaliland to the frontiers of
Abyssinia. It was afterward arranged
with William H. Ellis, who accompanied
Mr. Loomis from New York, to proceed
to Abyssinia with the treaty, which was
with the baggage of Mr. Loomis and
was brought to Paris from Cherbourg.
LONDON, June 25.—A1l the morning
newspapers, with the exception of the
the, Morning- Leader, treat the disap
pearance of Kent J. Loomis as a seri
ous sensation. None of the special
dispatches from Paris confirm the dis
patch sent by the Leader correspond
ent. So far as London is concerned,
the disappearance of Mr. Loomis con
tinues to be shrouded in the deepest
mystery. The London manager of the
North German Lloyd line is quoted as
saying that the matter has become a
most serious one, as every effort to lo
cate Mr. Loomis has failed.

PERDICARIS IS BACK
He and Variey Reach Tangier
Badly Thinned
Special Cable to The Globe
TANGIER, June With the re
lease of Perdicaris and Varley comes
the beginning of the most serious crisis
Morocco has ever experienced. To
morrow the American and British min
isters, on behalf of their respective
governments, will - demand the imme
diate capture and punishment of Rai
suli. the brigand chief.
Both governments have all along re
jected any suggestion that they guar
antee immunity to him. Not only Rai
suli. but the Moroccan government, has
desired this, the latter foreseeing that
the sultan would be placed in an awk
ward position if the brigand's punish
ment were demanded at his hands.
Should the Fez government refuse
the demand of America I and Great
Britain it will be an affront to those
powers, and the outcome is obvious. -
TANGIER, June 25, 12:55 a. m.—
Perdicaris and Cromwell Varley, who
were captured by the bandit Raisuli,
have just arrived here. Perdicaris is
very much fatigued after his long ride,
but says he is glad to get back. He is
greatly pleased with the reception ac
corded him by the townsmen who met
him in great numbers.
Perdicaris suffered many hardships
while in the hands of Raisuli, although
he says he does not think that these
were the fault of the bandit chief, and
that he had every comfort possible un
der the circumstances.
Varley appears to be as cheerful and
bright as if he ; had just returned from
a picnic. Both men are much thinner,
especially Perdicaris, who has aged
considerably. He was received at his
town" house by the authorities, the ad
mirals of the fleets and numerous per
sonal friends. ; His * Moorish servants
made a great demonstration of joy,
kissing their master's hands and
clothes.
Much credit is due to the two shereefs
of Wazan, Mulai All and Mulai Hamet,
who have devoted much time to the
negotiations. Mulai AH remained at
Raisuli's camp continuously, thus in
suring the safety of the lives of the
captives, while. Mulai Hamet traveled
back and forth between Tangier and
Benairos. The exchange of the pris
oners took place at the camp of Zelala,
governor of the Benim Sara tribe.

SHOOTS AND DROPS
ELEVEN STORIES
Detroit Man Wounds Young
Woman and Plunges to
His Own Death
DETROIT, Mich., June 24.—Charles
A.* Swayse,/ employed' by a life insur
ance company and former assistant su
perintendent of the Detroit house of
correction, today shot Miss Effie Al
vord twice While the couple _. were in a
private office in the company's suite on
the eleventh floor of the Chamber of
Commerce building and then jumped
from the window himself. He died as
he was carried into the lobby of the
building. Miss Alvord was shot in the
neck and wrist, but is not fatally hurt.
Miss Alvord drove up to the Cham
ber of Commerce in an automobile, ac
companied by a man. She went to the
eleventh floor, and, entering the office
of the life insurance company, asked to
have a private interview with Mr.
Swayse. She was shown into a small
private office, where Swayse joined her,
shutting and locking the door. In a
few moments the other persons in the
office heard a struggle, then screams
which were followed by pistol shots.
Manager McCall, of the agency, rushed
against the door of the private room
and broke it open. Miss Alvord was
prostrate on the floor, her hair dis
heveled, her waist torn and blood pour
ing from the Wounds In her neck and
wrist. Through the open window Mr.
McCall could see Swayse's hands
clutching the window ledge. They were
in view for only a moment. Then
Swayse let go and his body went whirl
ing down through the air. It hit sev
eral wires and turned over twice, strik
ing on the face and chest. A bullet
wound in his nose showed that he had
also shot himself before taking the
plunge.
Tries to Throw Girl Out
Miss Alvord is an employe "of a sew
ing machine company, but worked at
the house of correction when Swayse
was assistant superintendent there.
Her. home: is said to be at Saginaw,
Mich. Occupants-of a building across
the street from the Chamber :of Com
merce say that i they saw Swayse; at
tempt to throw Miss Alvord but of the
window. Her head and shoulders were
across the ledge and she was fighting
desperately. Then the couple disap
peared from the window and the shots
rang out, followed by Swayse's plunge.
The man with whom Miss Alvord
drove up to the building was J. B. Ter
ry, an employe of the same sewing
machine company that employed Miss
Alvord. At "woman's boarding
house it was stated that Miss Alvord
and Terry had been married for several
months. On the contrary, Miss Alvord
sent word to the reporters, through the
physician who dressed her wounds at
the hospital, that she was not married
to Terry, but was engaged to him. Yes
terday was the young woman's twenty
eighth birthday, and she. told the phy
sician that Swayse sent her a telephone
message that he was going to shoot
her as a birthday present. She said she
went to Swayse's office today to break
with him. He had been threatening,
she said, to write to the mother of her
sweetheart and tell her that Miss Al
vord was not the kind of a girl her son
should marry. She says that she went
to the office today to tell him to «go
ahead with his letter if he pleased to do
so and then finally break with him.
Supt. McDonnell, of the house of cor
rection, states that it was the inti
macy between Swayse and Miss Alvord
that caused him to discharge them
both. Intimacy, he said, gradually grew
while they were fellow employes at the
institution, and while Miss Alvord was
visiting Swayse's home frequently as
a friend of his wife's.
Probably Not a Suicide
It is not certain that Swayse delib
erately jumped from the eleventh
story window. It is thought by many
that when he heard the door of the
private office being broken in he crawl
ed out on the window ledge and en
deavored to hang by his hands in a
mad attempt to escape death. Marks
in the dust on the window ledge show
where his fingers gradually dragged
across the ledge until his hold was lost.
This is taken to indicate that he did
not intend to jump. Swayse was fifty
three years old and leaves a widow and
two children.

WASHINGTON, D; C., June 24.—A '
sweeping '- change in the cabinet of I
President Roosevelt was thus announc- j
ed officially at the White house today: i
"William H. Moody, of Massachu- J
setts, attorney general; ? Paul Morton, |
of Illinois, secretary of the navy; Vie- !

Fe railroad, jis a personal friend of the
president of many years standing? He
is the son. of the late J. Sterling Mor
ton, of Nebraska, secretory ;of agri
culture in President? Cleveland's last
administration.
It is expected that further changes
will take place in the y cabinet next
winter. Postmaster^ General -" Payne
will retire after the /campaign. He
will be succeeded by Mr. Cortelyou.
Secretary Moody will continue as a
member of the cabinet only until the
end of the present administration on
the" 4th of March next, when he will
retire to enter upon the practice of
law in Boston. It is quite likely that
other changes will take place in j the

of them. yy y* "?-:'-*■'■

CURTAILS POWER Of
THE COUNTY SOEONS
Kane Says County Roads Must
- y :-?.- - >■■- .-': • ■•-.. • --.--?.. ' *yy
Be Repaired Under Super
vision of Town Boards
The board of county commissioners
will no longer have supervision over
road repairs in the country districts
outside of the city, according to an im
portant' ruling made by County Attor
ney Kane yesterday. Mr. Kane has de
cided that all of this Work, even when
paid for by the county, shall be done
under the direct supervision of the
town boards in the townships in which
the, repairs are being made, and the
country members of the board ill no
longer have the 'supervision of the
road and bridge fund as has been the
custom in past years.
y-The ruling made by County Attor
ney Kane,' after a thorough search of
all laws bearing upon the subject, is
considered a most important one and
is looked upon to solve the problem of
extravagant expenditure of this fund
by members of the board who have
been in the habit of giving the work
out to favored ones in their respective
districts. The ruling was made at
yesterday's meeting of the board and
came; as - a blow to the commissioners,
especially those from, the country dis
tricts, who were totally unprepared for
any such opinion. y *'
The board was too surprised to take
any action on the matter yesterday,
but. it was . stated- after the meeting
that a resolution would be passed on
Monday, providing for the work to be
done along the lines; as drawn by the
county attorney. Mr. Kane says he
can back up his opinion with laws suf
ficient to compel the board to follow
his instructions in this class of work.
Will Effect Radical Change
I The new ruling made by Mr. Kane is
expected to result in a radical change
in the system of road work in Ram
sey county. Its magnitude can be bet
ter appreciated when it is known that
for years past the entire expenditure
of the : road and bridge fund, amount
ing to from $25,000 to $35,000 per year,
has been under the direct and prac
tically personal supervision of the two
members of the board from the -coun
try districts. The entire board makes
the appropriations, but the work, aside
from that let by contract, is perform
ed under the supervision of the coun
try members, and It has long been
rcharged" that this system has been an
expensive one to the county, since the
country members were in* the habit of
giving out the work personal friends
and to those who had stood by them
in the campaign. ? *y' :
Under the new ruling there wilL be
nothing for the board to do but to vote
the appropriations, and the town boards
will look after the work. The new
system is expected to result in. fewer
appropriations and better work.
. County Attorney Kane's ruling pro
vides that where it is found necessary
to make repairs on a piece of country
road, and where the cost is less than
$300, it shall be the duty of the com
missioners to make the appropriation,
after which the auditor will draw a
warrant for the amount, payable to
the town treasurer of the township in
which the work is to be done, and the
money will be expended under the su
pervision of this town board.
County Solons Can't Hire the Men
The township treasurer is required
to give a bond to insure the work.being
"properly performed, but the county
board will have nothing to say regard
ing the manner in which the work shall
be done, nor ] shall the members have
anything to say as to who shall do the
work.??. . y ;?. ■ ; ■?y
* "I believe it will result in better
roads and an expenditure of much less
money,", said Mr. Kane yesterday. "If
the commissioners are not permitted
to supervise the work and employ the
workmen, they will be more careful in
making; appropriations, and the town
boards, working under a bond and on
roads in which, they are personally in
terested, are sure to do better work."
County Attorney Kane says this sys
tem will ;be followed in every instance
where the cost of the repairs is less
than $300, and where the cost exceeds
this amount, it will be necessary to let
a contract and receive bids for the job.
It will take the work out of the hands
of the county board almost entirely.

from Hai-tcheng, and another is at Chapanlin, twenty-five
