TOKYO, Nov. 15.—The Japanese army staff pronounce the report of
Gen. Kuroki's death to be absurd.
LONDON, Nov. 15.—Judging from
Tokyo dispatches and statements by
Japanese here, the question of the Rus
sian second Pacific squadron is giving
rise to some uneasiness in Japan. This
possibly is the outcome of the contin
ued absence of news of the progress
of (he siege of Port Arthur. An article
in the Post today from Japanese
sources comments strongly upon al
leged breaches of neutrality on the
part of France and Germany in giving
the squadron coaling facilities, and
contends that it will be utterly at vari
ance with Suez canal regulations for
the ships of the squadron to be permit
led to take sufficient coal and provis
ions at Port Said to carry them to the
nearest port. The article suggests
thai Great Britain will interfere to pre
vent the granting of such facilities.

AUBURN, Ala., Nov. 14.—An attempt,

A report that a negro, Arthur Barnes,
porter at the depot, had fatally stabbed

GOVERNOR-ELECT AND MRS. JOHN A.JOHNSON
mm caucus is
LIGHTLY ATTENDED
Only Five First District Solons
Answer Roll Call at
Rochester
Special to The Globe
ROCHESTER, Minn., Nov. 14.—The
Initial effort of Thomas Lowry to be
come a candidate for United States
senator in opposition to Moses E.
Clapp, made today in the Cook house,
met with decided failure.
The endeavor was to line up the
First district members and induce them
to be the first to shout for Lowry, but
W. A. Nolan was able to get together
but five members of the house, and
after the meeting it was concluded that
in view of the small attendance it
would be folly to give out « statement
that Lowry had been indorsed *p
It \yas evident, however, that It wai
a Lowry meeting in purpose, although
ostensibly called for the purpose of
promoting the candidacy-af-W. A, Nolan
for the sneakerihip, and If there had
been the expected attendance arid the
result had been satisfactory the formal
announcement of Lowry's candidacy
would have followed. Under the cir
cumstances the five members of the
house present decided to state that
while they are favorable to Lowry's
candidacy the question of the election
of a senator was not formally consid
ered.
Those present at the meeting »nd
who will be classed aa L#owry adherents
were W. A. Nolan, D. G. Dalen. Bur
dette Thayer, O. N. Thundale and F.
Fanning. A noted absentee was Wll- j
Ham Frazer, a member-elect of the
house, who lives in Rochester. He j
was not at home, but it is said he
knew nothing of the caucus and most
likely would not have participated if
he had been invited. The five legis
lators present waited for some time for
the arrival of others, but when their
number was not increased retired to a^
private room and considered the sub
ject that had brought them together.
Meeting Long Planned
It is known that extensive preparav
tions were made for this meeting, which
had been planned to be the opening gun'
of the Lowry campaign. So cottfWent
of success were the promoters that
previous to the meeting the St. Paul
Lowry organ was notified and pub
lished the statement that while no ac
tion had been taken on the senator
ship question during the early part of
the meeting that the delegation would,
pledge itself to support Lowry as
against Clapp. It was announced that
fifteen members were in attendance
and tLat W. A. Nolan had at once
been made the choice of the district
for speaker. But it so happened that
ten of the fifteen scheduled to attend
failed to do so. and it waa found nee- j
essary at least to delay the plan of
formally launching the Lowry boom.
This indorsement wa» planned by the
Lowry supporters to give the Minne
apolis members courage. Great diffi
culty is being encountered in the ef-
fort to line up the Hennepin county
delegation, some of the members hold
ing to the opinion that to support Low
ry would be to enter into a losing
game. To convince them that Lowry
has supporters in other sections of the
city it was planned to spring the boom
in the First district. Nolan having evi
dently pinned his hopes of the speak
ership to the Lowry candidacy for the
senate.
Lowry Stood With Dunn
Lowry's candidacy has been suspect
ed since he announced that he was
personally supporting Dunn for gov
ernor, a statement he made during the
heat of the controversy as to Dunn's
standing on the question. While the
general public was trying to make up

PRESIDENT WILL
RECASI_CABINET
.ilut More Than Four or Five of
the Present Members
Will Remain
Globe Special Washington Service
1417 G Street
WASHINGTON, D. C, Nov. 14.—
Several men who have been conspicu
ous in public life win be retired from
the administration as a result of Mr.
Roosevelt's election It is a little too
early to figure on the exact composi
tion of the ri*!tt cabinet, but it is about
a* eextMln as anything can be that not
more than five of the present members
wiy remain, in office much later than
Mart h 4.
It is putting U.h little too strong,
probably, to say that the president will
make wholesale, changes in the per
sonnel of the administration surround
ing himself entirely with young men.
although this statement was widely
published a day or two after election.
So far as politics are concerned the
president has told his friends that he
expects t6 continue in the way he be
gan three years ago; hut in regard to
persons he has made no such clear-cut
announcement. It Is well understood,
however, that there will be a general
reorganization of the cabinet, and in
view of the declaration of the president
that he will not be a candidate for an
other nomination, it may be "expected
that Mr. Roosevelt will exercise a good
deal of independence in his selections
for office.
The announcement has been made
officially that John Hay will remain
at the head of the state department.
There is a good deal of reason to be-~
lieve that Leslie M. Shaw will not con
tinue many months longer as secretary
of the treasury. He *« not Mr. Roose
velt's type of man, and although the
relations of the president and the sec
retary are pleasant enough, there Is no
.surplus of cordial feeling on the presi
dent's side. George B. Cortelyou, chair
man of the Republican national com
mittee, would lik*e to be secretary of
the treasury, but the chances are that
he will be appointed postmaster gen
eral, according to the plan announced
some months ago.
The president desires very much to
retain the services of Secretary of War
Taft and Secretary of the Navy Mor
ton. Both men were appointed by him;
both are comparatively young men,
am} the president not only approves of
their methods of administration, but
be has a warm personal regard for
both. It is probable that both Mr. Taft
and Mr. Morton •will remain in the
cabinet indefinitely.
Attorney General Moody will prob
ably retire from the cabinet March 4
in order to resume the practice of law
in Massachusetts. No name has been
mentioned in connection with this
portfolio, but k would surprise no one j
it the president should select a com- i
paratively young man from the bar of |
the city of New York. Whoever the !
new attorney general may be, the pres
ident will constantly seek the advice of
Senator Knox, formerly his attorney
general, especially, in regard to matters
affecting the great trusts and corpora
tions.
It is-jiot unlikely that Secretary of
the Interior Hitchcock will resign
March 4, and that his resignation wil!
be accepted by the president. If this
turns out to be, true, it is pretty certain
that Victor H. Metcalf, of California,
the present secretary of commerce and
labor, will be appointed to succeed him.
In any event* is Is' unlikely that Mr.
Metcalf will continue at the head of
the department of commerce, as it is
believed the president wishes to ap
oolnt Jatne* R. Garfield to that position.
Mr. Garfield Is a young man of very mod^
eat ability.aud tnere was much criticism

ST. PETER, Minn., Nov. 14.—Loyal
citizens from all sections of the state
ot Minnesota journey to St. Peter
yesterday afternoon, and last night
joined !n one of the grandest tributes
paid to a man in these United States.
Larger crowds may have cheered presi
dents and even other governors, but
the men who came to St. Peter—
Democrats, independent Republicans
and plain voters of the state—came not
at the crack of the party lash but mere
ly to pay homage to Clti*en John A.
Johnson.
Crowds Startle Town
St. Peter was expecting large crowds,
but St. Peter did not expect the crowds
that swarmed from the St. Paul, Min
neapolis, Mankato and New Ulm spe
cials. At 6:40 The Globe special
pulled into the depot and 500 enthusi
astic men and women tumbled out of
the eight cars. The Minnesota State
band filed into the street leading to
Minnesota avenue and the St. Paul
delegation started the Invasion of St.
Peter.
Thirty minutes later the Minneapolis
special pulled in, and again the resi
dents of St. Peter stood on the side
walks and heard when not cheering a
delegation 200 strong declaring for
John A. Johnson first, last and all the
time.
Following the Minneapolis train
came the specials from Mankato and
New Ulm. The Mankato special, made
up of eleven coaches, brought fully 500
men to swell the crowds, and the New
Ulm special, making stops at Sleepy
Eye, Nicollet and Courtland, picked up
enough to add another 500 to the
throng that moved like a huge serpent
up and down Minnesota avenue.
Visitors Come Early
The specials from the different
points, though overcrowded, brought
but a small portion of the people that
crowded the streets in honor of John
A. Johnson tonight.
All day long, and even yesterday,
the trains leading-to St. Peter carried
men who had dropped their work to
join in the demonstration to the Dem
ocratic governor-elect. At every hotel
in the city could be found traveling
men who had left their territory to
come and join in the cheers. Mer
chants, farmers, professional men, men
from all walks of life and from all
parts of Minnesota, were all there, and
EXPECT INDICTMENT
Probable Sequel of Assault by
St. Cloud Postmaster
Special to The Globe
ST. CLOUD, Minn., Nov. 14.—Upon
request of the county attorney, Judge
Searle, In charging the grand Jury to
day, called attention to the assault
upon Thomas Scollan. of the Merchants
hotel, by Postmaster H. G. Wire" a week
ago tonight. The court urged the Jury
to make a thorough Investigation, and
if any guilty parties are found, to hoM
them responsible. The officer who was
on the beat, Lepinsky. ft charged by
some with neglect of duty in not stop
ping the row, and the court ordered the
jury to investigate this charge. He
also instructed the jurors to determine
what the owner of the saloon, Lam
bert, did to stop the fight.
It is confidently expected that an in- ,
dictment wili be returned In a day or
two, as subpoenas were issued and <
served this afternoon. Scollan is in.
bad shape and has not improved to any
extent. His death would not be a sur
prise at any time. Wire is greatly
worried, "but ' his many friends ar«
standing by him.

HEART FAILS IN SEA
lr*dore Rush, Actress, Over*
come While Bathing
SAN DIEGO. Cal., Nov. 14. — Miss
Isidore Rush, the leading lady of the
"Glittering Gloria" company, which
was to have begun an engagement
here today, died of heart failure
while bathing in the surf near this
city, death being due to the shock
caused when an immense wave caught
her and carried her into deep water.
Half a dozen members of the com
pany were in the surf, which was un- j
usually high, when a spectator noticed f
the struggles of Miss Rush. Assistance i
was at once hurried to her, but she
was unconscious when brought to
shore. Physicians were called apd ev
«ry means possible used to revive the
unfortunate woman, but in vain.
Another member of the company,
Milton Heriot*. who endeavored .to res
" cue his companion, was rendered un
conscious in the attempt and was pull
ed out of the water by H. B. Smith.
He was revived after vigorous treat- '
nient. -
Miss Rush last appeared in St. Paul a
little more than a month ago. She became
prominent first in the support of Roland
Reed, and after bis death played leading
roles herself. She had many admirers in
St. Paul, though her last vehicle was not
1 sn'emiiient success.
