Kuropatkin Criticises Selection of Officers and Men. Cladgf •yadana. May 12. — General Kuropatkin to-day criticised the system of mobilization and the forwarding of reinforcements, saying that better results would be obtained by completing the units at present in the field than by sending to the Far East new corps. The general said that the authorities are picking the most un desirable <">f the reserves, and mentioned the case of the Tenth Corps, adding that when it was mobilized, instead of drafting the youngest reserves who had been called into service, the oldest classes were chosen. He said further that when the Seventeenth Corps arrived in Manchuria it had only a third of its comple ment of officers, and many of these were unde plrabla. having apparently been shipped as a riddance. The general Bald further that unattached tronps BhouHL bo embodied into the units already in the field, in accordance with the experience nf officers who had seen the most Fervice. This course, he added, would effect a great saving in transportation, a.s a corps of 25.000 men, with its baggage and trains, required the samo number of cars as 100,000 men to fill tho ranks of corps already In Manchuria. General Linevitch has instituted company and battalion drills to practise jassing wire en tanglements and abattfs, as well as testa of marksmanship and other exerci^ee. VERSIONS OF THE KAISER'S SPEECH. Alarming Utterances Not Given — Russian Officers Blamed. Berlin, May 12. — The- "Frankfurter Zeitung ' to-day gives tha following version of the re markß made recently by Emperor "William at Strasburg to the highar officers after a review: A.s we hear it, the Emperor tho day before yesterday said to the officers after a review that certain aspects of the Russo-Japanese War emphasised the neceSHlty for sober, moral living among the officers and men. lie pointed out, also, tho significance ot the race groupings in Ea>t AEia. which might become Important for th>- (Jftrinan army. "Th(» Strasabtirger Post" gives a version of Em peror William's speech to the officers differing ma terially from "Th« Burger Zeltungs" report, but containing a number of other Interesting details. The Emperor spoko for half an hour, and "The Post's" report gives only coma of his most strik ing utterances. Ho »^(i: Young men In tha army must have more to do; they must work hard all clay, so as to be thoroughly fatigued by evening and want to go to bed' early, instead of seeking enervating pleasures. The offi cers' corps Is the soul of the army and muat ever be kept In trim; otherwise the army suffers. The present war furnishes examples enough of that. The Japanese officers' corps is extremely ef ficient, and, like the Japanese common soldier, ha« etood the test fully. The Russian officers* corps, on th« other hand, has completely failed, 'whereas tho Russian soldiers have behaved well and fought bravely. My son told mo Russian officers bought up all the champagne in Klao-Chau. The soldier In the field must accustom himself to an abstemious life and dare not think of such things.

In tho battle of Moukden General Kuropatkin committed tho error of going to the front. The Japanese commander in chief Marshal Oyama, remained far to the rear, and conducted from there a vastly extended, struggle. He received telegraphic reports, gave telegraphic orders and sat thore as calmly as a chess player, making move after move. Kuropatkin completely "ailed In this for the lack of a suitable position. These remarks were uttered In the usual mili tary criticism that tho Emperor makes to higher officers after parades and man iiivres. AUTOCBATS BLAME JEWS. Official Report of Affray a at Zhito mir—Forty Dead. St. Petersburg. May 12— Tho official account of the disorders at Zhitomir pays a general mas sacre was only prevented by the energetic meas ures taken by the authorities.

A fow days later a Jew struck a Christian boy of fifteen "years in Hudltcheff-st.. and tho boy used a penkr.ifo to defend himself. He was immediately .surrounded by a crow 3of threat ening Jews, and was only rescued by the police. Still later, whUe several Jews, sentenced for political crimes, were being conveyed to prison, their coreligionists made a demonstration, loudly cursing tho Emperor. In another in stance tho Jews set upon a Christian who had entered th«* Jewish quarter, covering him with mud and beating him. They also forced several shops to closi. . The Minister of the Interior has also received news o£ other cases in which Jews have insulted and even beaten women. The Christiana are greatly incensed and excited. Besides this, the social revolutionists hava scattered proclama tions telling Jewa that a ni.issa.ci'* is contem plated.

Hyde ;tJid Apso ciates occurred, in which Japanese <\ p<>r cent bonds, first series, were underwritten, plaintiff James H. Hyde was In K.imi>o.. Participation In this syndi cate was ciffrre<l to defendant personally and he accepted, on behalf of James 11. Hyde and As?o ciates, and personally mado the allotments to mem bers of the syndicate, allotting to him.^lf a J250.W10 participation and to James 11. Hyde a like amount. Subsequently a sub-committee of the executive, committee of the ETqultable society, composed of de fendant and ni'.e other, but not Mr. Hyde, au thorized the purchase by the society of part of the Issue of these bonds, and the purchase was made while Mr. Hyde was still In Kurope. These transactions were. In continuance of a cus tom that bad existed In which the defendant had been a party and beneficiary for many years prior to the connection '>f James Hazen Hyde with the society. In none of such instances was there any* tiling Improper <>r Injurious to the society or its Interests. The defendant in all instances received and collected a .-heck for th 6 sum of money and at tho same time us that received by the said Hyde on each of saJd transactions. As to the charge that said James Hazen Hyde was in any way interested or concerned in the United States Shipbuilding Company, the statement la unqualifiedly false. He was never In any way concerned therein. The false and defamatory charges have had tha effect of seriously impairing public confidence in James Hazen Hyde, and in the society and its manasemc-nt, and has affected Its prosperity. The organization has been crippled, the business In and notwithstanding the unquestioned sol vency nnd stability of tho society, many of its pollcyholders have become alarmed for the safety of their Investments, resulting in litigation In many of the States ami demoralisation among its em ployes. All -.hese disastrous results and the conse quent injury to the stock, of which the defendant Is a trustee, are directly chargeable to the con spiracy of the defendant nnd to his perfidy In at tempting for his own selfish purposes to destroy the value of the property Intrusted to his care. A STOCK CONSPIRACY ALLEGED. The general complaint continues: Plaintiffs are lnforme-1 and believe that the de fendant has mado no effort whatever to induce Hyd.- on his attaining the iqre of thirty years and on the termination of the trust, or at any time, to make a new settlement of the stock. The defend unt h:ig for many months past been secretly en gage.l in organizing and carrying on a conspiracy, the purpose and effect <>f which, if successful, would be to take (!.■■ power of controlling th" maJi agement of the society away from the stock with out tin consent of its holders, and to confer this power ostensibly on the poUcyholders ot the soci ety but In a form in which he expects to be able to control such management through the proxies which tho agents ot the society would secure from poUcyholders, fecurlng the control for himself and his relatives. Up to fho third day of February. 1906, this m«v< ment was conducted by tho derena ant in secret. Mr. Tail .11 ia introduced thus: The defendant, who owed his connection with the society and his prosperity to the friendship and generosity of Henry B. Hyde, inaugurated the con spiracy, joining with himself Gage K. Tarb«ll. tho 6econd vice-president of the society. All the overt act?* :r. the conspiracy were* committed with tne aid and connivance of TarbeH with the Intent to secure to the defendant and Tarbell the control of the society and its assets freed from tho rights and cowera over the control of the society and Ha assets* incident to the ownership of the stock of which fhe defendant was on© of the trustee*. "It was tha desire of Henry B. Hyde," says the complaint, "as was well known to the de fendant, thn.t the control of tha stock so placed In trust, and the responsibility for the selection of the directors of the society and for its man agement, should remain In his descendants as "long: as the law would permit." The complaint rccitog how Mr. Hyde was sum moned before President Alexander, who de manded that he should resign. It tells how Mr. Hyde, to prevent the destruction of the value of the stock, offered to compromise by offering 1 to have his stock voted for five years by the di rectors, in the mean time steps to be taken. If ry, to retire th^ stock anil to conserve the rights of stockholders and policyholders. Tho complaint says the board of directors de cided to "mutuallze" the company and buy the Hyde stock, and how they found that they had no power to purchase it. SAYS HE HAS RESIGNED. Tho reply of Mr. Alexander's counsel is largely along the lines of recent statements from the Alexander side. He declares that the plan of mutuallzatlon advocated by Mr. Alexander simply carries the original design of the charter; to its logical conclusion. Notwithstanding Mr. Hjde's recent statement that Mr. Alexander would not be permitted to resign his trust, It is insisted that Mr. Alexander has "voluntarily resigned, as he had the right to do under the agreement." Every step in the direction of "mutualization." It Is added, has been taken with "a sincere and disinterested purpose." The "pretence" that Mr. Hyde has "acted under duress' is characterized as "absurd." The allegations of the complaint are regarded "as merely intended to create a false impres sion and as utterly Immaterial to the main ques tions Involved." "The purpose of this action." says the reply, "can hardly be to obtain relief in the courts. It merely seeks to divert attention from the vital question of giving to the policyholders the con trol of their own property." Mr. Hyde, it was learned yesterday, left town for his Long Island home on Thursday night, ; in d, unless his presence is urgently demanded, will not return until next week. Owing to Superintendent Hendrlcks's absence yesterday, his investigation was postponed until Monday. Mr. Tarbell, it is said, will be examined either on Tuesday or Wednesday, when he will bo asked, bo report has it, as to his early business career, his alleged practice of "rebating" and as to the salary of his stenographer, who is said to receive $12,000 a year. In his examination by Superintendent Hen drlcks. Mr. Alexander, it was said yesterday, was asked if he had authorized the denials of his sharing with Mr. Hyde In underwriting syn dicates. The following checks made by Mr. Hyde and payable to Mr. Alexander, by whom they wore indorsed, were shown to Mr. Alexan der it is paid: January 28, 1005, $12.52373; April 28 HtO4, $2.98364; January 11. I'.hC*. $28, 266; July 80. 1902, $4.53188; July 11. 1904. $3. 20443; October 18, 1904, $5,16078, and June 1. 1004, $2,928. CHECKS IN SYNDICATE DEALS. As to the two checks, one for $28,26681, of January 11. and th« other for 512J52373, of Jan uary 23, for syndicate profits on two Japanese loans, which Mr. Alexander had stated that he had handed over to the .ashler of the society, it appeared on his examination, It Is said, that both went into his own trustee bank account. On February 1. the day before Mr. Alexander confronted Mr. Hyde with the memorial, ha drew a check for these two amounts, which was handed to tha cashier of toe society, it is nald. The moneys paid to him on all the otner syndicate transactions nre' still, it Is said, re tained. Frank Plntt said earlier in the day that Su perintendent H end ricks might ask Attorney General Mayer to take action against Mr. Hyde if facts proved to be as they appeared.
