Army la Still Loyal.
St. Petersburg, June 1. There have
been rumors in circulation that the
army in Manchuria is on the verge of
mutiny after hearing the news of the
annihilation of the Russian fleet. It
was even declared that Gen. Linevitch
had sent a telegram to the czar declar
ing he could not depend upon the army
in the approaching battle.
None of these rumors can be con
firmed and they are laughed at in army
circles. As a matter of fact, dispatch
es from the front say the news of Ro
jestvensky's defeat is not yet made
known to the Russian armies in Man
churia and that the soldiers are still
hoping for a Russian naval victory.

DID NOT WRITE IN BOOK
Family Reports That Frank Stapleton
Did Not Hint at Suicide.
With reference to the article that
appeared in The Argus last evening
about the note book of Frank Staple
ton being found under the bridge with
hints at suicide in it, a communication
comes from his home which purports
to give the facts in the case.
It is paid that the young man lost
his note book, but had not done any of
tho writing in it that was referred to
and which led to the investigation and
the turning over to the police of the
book. This is laid to an enemy or
someone with mischievous design. It
is further stated that he is only 20
years of age and is not married; that
he has a good home, and has no cause
for any such action.
