St. Paul, Oct. 24.—-George Harding, white, and Prank Aldrich, colored were instantly killed, presumably by an explosion of gas in the St. Paul Gas Co.'s tunnel, Fourth and John streets today. The men were fitting some pipes in the tunnel and the first indication of trouble was when the workmen at the gas plant saw flames coming from the mouth of the tunnel. He turned in a fire alarm, but when the firemen arrived the flames were out and no odor of gas was noticed. The bodies of the two men had been blown apart some distance from where they were working and this leads to the explosion theory as no sound was heard above ground. The bodies were badly burned.

"Attorney General—fcliarlfes J. ©ana parte. "Secretary of the Navy—Victor H. Metcalf. Secretary of Commerce and Labor— Oaear S. Straus." The general understanding for some time has been that Attorney General Moody will retire on the first of the coming January and that Secretary Shaw will follow him on March 4. On the first of the year, therefore, Mr. Bonaparte, who _is now secretary of the navy, will succeed Mr. Moody a" attorney-general rf be succeeded by Mr. Metcalf, the sec retary of commerce and labor, the latter's place being filled by Mr. Straus. Mr Cortelyou, now postmaster general, will take Secretary Shaw's place on March 4, at which time Mr. Meyer is to become postmaster general. The announcement of the prospective changes in the cabinet was made late in the afternoon, following a protracted cabinet meeting earlier* in the day at Which it is understood the whole mat ter was considered fully. The changes contemplate the introduction of two new men in the cabinet, Mr. Meyer," who is to be postmaster general, and Mr. Straus, who Is to be secretary qf comjwci'cv and laJjor.

S. 8(ipre(ne Court. ^Tlashihgton, Oct. 2i. While no official statement is obtainable, unof ficial information confirms the report that President Roosevelt will appoint Attorney General William H. Moody of Massachusotts to the vacancy on the supreme bench made by the re tirement of Associate Justice Henry B. Brown. It is announced the in tention of the president to appoint Moody to the supremo bench came as a surprise as it was generally under stood that he had eliminated the at torney general from consideration in that connection because of the fact, mainly, that Massachusetts already has a representative on the bench in the person of Justice Holmes. Moody's nomination will be sent to the senate when congress convenes, but it is the general expectation that he will not take his seat on the bench until about Jan. 1, when, as previously announced, he expects to retire from the attorney generalship. PLAYED LEAP FROG. Naughty, Naughty Girls at Lawrence University—Shocked the Matron. Applcton, Wis., Oct. 24.—Four girls are threatened with expulsion from Lawrence university as a result of a "rough house" in Ormsby hall last evening when the preceptress was away. Two, who are daughters of a well known Wisconsin clergyman, in cited fifty young ladies to a rousing game of leap' frog in the reception room on the third floor. The fun was fast and furious and the matron, Miss Lelon Wayne, attempted to put a stop to it, but the girls rushed her to the top of the stairway in a body and re fused to stop their play until they were panting for breath. It is generally conceded that It is impossible to play leap frog attired in long skirts, but the girls persis tently refuse to say in what costume they enjoyed the fascinating sport. The fair co-eds had been living very quietly in their hall for almost a month and were brimming over for some kind of a joust. When the pre ceptress left they embraced the oppor tunity and the girls who were retired were pulled from their beds and made to enter the sport. Nothing loath they joined in until fifty leaping and stooping girls made a chain of "frogs that circled the reception room. Murderer Confessed. Chicago, Oct. 24.—Edward Nicholas the theatrical agent who w^£ taken int ocustody by the police during their investigation of the death of Mrs Margaret Leslie, an actress, who was found dead in her room at the Palace hotel, made a confession of the mur der of Mrs. Leslie and to the stealing of her diamonds, valued at $1,500.

The woman's diamonds and her money were the motive for the crime. v' .. l',' fri I! i i« iftniijunni a place In the cabinet has been know for some time, but the name of Mr Straus has been mentioned only inci dentally, if at all, in connection with the circle of the president's advisors The transfer of Messrs. Cortelyou to the treasury, Bonaparte to the atlor ney generalship and Metcalf to the havy have been generally accepted as among the probabilities for some time although it has been known that both Mr. Bonaparte and Mr. Metcalf were for a time loath to leave their present positions because they have become so fully identified with the work of their respective departments. Mr. Meyer, who will become po^t master general, is ambassador to Ru sia, to which place he was appointed on March 6, 1905, having been promot ed to that office following his service as the ambassador to Italy from laOO to 1905.
