> "I am not surprised at the favorable results cf the Republican primaries
> as shown in the returns," said R. C. Dunn last evening. "It is what I con
> fidently expected. I stand by the prediction I made, that I. would receive
■ enough votes in the counties outside of Ramsey and Hennepin, to nominate
1 me. I am sure of carrying both these counties, but will have enough dele
y gates without both or either. With one or the other, or both, my nomina
tion on the first balot will be clinched. I feel absolutely confident and serene
>as to the result of the convention. My friends will insist upon and secure
1 fair dealing in the convention and they as well as I will abide by the de
> cision." : . ;
Conservative estimates, based upon
actual information received by The
Globe, and upon claims made by the
Dunn and Collins managers, with the
necessary deduction, indicate that Rob
ert C. Dunn has a long lead over Col
lins up to date and his nomination is
practically assured.
Frank M. Eddy, so far as the returns
show, is out of the race altogether, and
it is believed Dunn will be nominated
on the first ballot.
Extravagant claims were made by
both sides last night, each claiming
enough votes to elect their delegate on
the first ballot. The Colline people,
however, were unable to show the mes
sages upon which they base their
claims, while at the Dunn headquarters
scores of messages, giving the result
of Saturday's primaries throughout the
state, were in evidence.
Reliable advices received by The
Globe from a number of counties
claimed by Collins managers would in
dicate that Dunn has carried those
counties, and a tabulation of the coun
ties actually heard from gives* Dunn a
decided advantage over his opponent.
It is also considered significant that
a number of counties claimed by Col
lins forces Saturday night were last
night conceded to Dunn, although
these losses were made up by claims
In other directions, but which the Dunn
managers regard as ridiculous.
Martin's Strong Claims
James A. Martin, manager of the
Collins campaign, gave out a state
ment last night in which he claimed
Collins would have enough votes to in
sure his nomination, even should Hen
nepin, Ramsey and St. Louis counties
send Dunn delegations to the state con
vention, but his table of figures showed
that many counties known to have
selected Dunn delegates were counted
In the Collins column, and his bare
claims that his candidate had won out
in these counties was all he offered to
offset the telegraphic reports received
by The Globe and at the Dunn
A conservative estimate of the
strength of the two candidates, based
on the counties where primaries have
already been held, shows that Dunn is
ahead of Collins in the proportion of
two to one, and should these figures
prove to be correct, Dunn could lose
more than half of the counties where
caucuses are to be held today and still
have enough votes in the convention to
nominate him.
Heavy Gale Causes Brooklyn
Yacht to Capsize
NEW YORK, June 26.—Five persons
were drowned in the bay off Forty
seventh street, Brooklyn, by the over
turning of the 38-foot sloop yacht Elsie
and Katie, in a heavy storm that swept
over New York this afternoon.
Eight other persons who were on the
yacht at the time were rescued by
members of the Second naval battalion,
who put out in whaleboats from their
armory, at the foot of Fifty-second
Those drowned were Mrs. Kate
Clarke, of Brooklyn, wife of Peter
Clarke, the owner of the yacht, her two
daughters, Lizzie, aged ten, and Louise,
aged four; her two-year-old niece,
Mamie Clarke, and Lizzie lason, six
teen years old. The bodies of Mrs.
Clarke and of Mamie Clarke have been
Train Kills Two
CLEVELAND, Ohio., June 26.—
Christopher Frese, a former city coun
cilman, and his wife Louisa, both over
sixty years old, were struck by a Lake
Sb£ii electric car this afternoon while
crossing the tracks on the Clifton bou
levard, and were killed.
At Dunn headquarters yesterday
George A. Flinn said positive informa
tion had been received from enough
counties to remove all doubt as to the
result. Mr. Flinn said Dunn would be
nominated on the first ballot. The Dunn
people pointed out the fallacy of the
Collins claims and produced reports
from various counties to prove that
Mr. Martin was claiming many coun
ties for Collins that should be counted
for Dunn.
More Caucuses Today
More than twenty counties will hold
their caucuses today, and both Dunn
and Collins are claiming their candi
dates will win out in the greater num
ber of them. Hennepin, Ramsey and
St. Louis counties, with their 220 dele
gates, are claimed by both sides, as is
the case in many of the other counties.
Of the counties to caucus today the
Collins people concede that Dunn will
carry Dakota, Isanti, Kanabec, Lyon,
Murray, Sibley and Washington, which
would be sufficient to nominate Dunn
with the counties his managers claim
he has already carried.
At Dunn head.quarters ; however, the
concessions made by the Collins people
regarding the caucuses to be held to
day are laughed at. Mr. Flinn said
more than three-fourths of the dele
gates to be chosen today would be for
Dunn, and the claim is made that the
Princeton man will carry Hennepin,
Ramsey and St. Louis counties.
Aitkin and Anoka counties art'
placed in the doubtful column by the
Collins managers, but are claimed pos
itively at Dunn headquarters. In the
latter county advices would indicate
that Dunn has won out by a vote of
more than two to one. Becker, Bel
trami and Benton counties are claimed
by both sides, and in the absence of
more positive information cannot be
placed in either the Dunn or Collins
column. Collins claims Blue Earth
county, but the Dunn people say this
county will be divided by agreement,
an understanding to this effect having
been entered into some time ago.
Brown county is claimed by Collins,
but it being the home of L. G. Vogel,
candidate for state treasurer, there is
little doubt but that the delegation will
be equally divided.
The Collins people last night con
ceded Carlton and Carver counties to
Dunn, but claimed Cass and Chippewa.
In Cass county there will be two con
ventions and the delegation will go to
the candidate controlling the state con
vention, while in Chippewa the infor-

Tammany Leader and Anti-Parker Man Who Will Be
Prominent at St. Louis. He Will Take a
Strong Staff With Him to the

Will Tour Northwest on
Spellbinding Mission
Globe Special Washington Service,
1417 G Street
WASHINGTON, D. C, June 26.—
Secretary of Treasury Leslie M. Shaw
will make two or three speeches in
Minnesota during the coming cam
paign, and he will be recognized there
as elsewhere in the course of his
stumping tours as the special repre
sentative of the administration.
Mr. Shaw will spend only a little
time in the treasury department this
summer, for he has already made spe
cific plans to visit several states for
the purpose of helping along the Re
publican ticket. During his absence,
however, the treasury deficit will not
grow any more rapidly than it would if
he were in Washington.
Must Explain Deficit
The condition of the treasury, indeed,
is one of the things that must be ex
p'ained during the campaign, and it is
appropriate that Secretary Shaw should
do the explaining. He has a plausible
tongue, and where straight argument
will not avail, Mr. Shaw can tell stories
and poke fun at the Democratic party.
Mr. Shaw likes campaigning, for he
is a stump orator of the old-fashioned
variety, who dearly loves to strip off
his? coat and plunge into a long, hot
summer campaign.
The exact time of his visit to Minne
sota has not been arranged, but it will
be rather early in the campaign. The
administration is well aware of the
strong feeling on the subject of the
tariff and reciprocity in the Norlhwest,
an.l they know that some of the Demo
cratic statesmen who are most pro
gressive in their expression of views on
the tariff are extremely popular in Min
nesota. —Walter E. Clark.
Washington Is Hot
WASHINGTON, D. C., June 26—Ac

was very hot, the official temperature
in those cities being 92 degrees.
South Dakota Farmer Badly
Hurt In Peculiar Manner
Special to The Globe
SIOUX FALLS, S. D., June 26.— E.
A. Harstad, a prominent farmer living
near Sioux Falls, narrowly escaped
death as the result of a peculiar acci
One of his hogs got its head caught
in a tin pail and efforts to release it
were unsuccessful. Finally as a last
lesort Harstad j procured a pair of
heavy shears and had begun to cut the
pail loose from the animal when the
hog- made a sudden jump. The ragged
edge of the tin pail caught Harstad's
wrist, cutting the flesh to the bone.
An artery was severed and the vic
tim of the unusual accident came near
bleeding to death before he could be
brought to Sioux Falls for treatment.
Three Men Drown Near Same Spot
BUFFALO, N. V., June 26.—8y the

while thousands were nearby listening
to a band concert.
About half a mile west of that place
Joseph Good today also met his death
by drowning, while another man, a
laborer, had a similar fate and the
body of a fisherman was cast ashore.
Senator McCarren & Pred!cts the
Nomination of the New

Special to The Globe
NEW YORK, June 26.—"Judge Par

than half the votes of the convention.
On the second ballot he will be nomi
With but one more state to act, Mis
souri and its action a foregone conclu
sion, this was the claim made tonight
by Senator McCarren.
In general review of the situation, as
it appears to the Parker men. the sen
ator said:
"We believe that the convention will
show some surprises in the strength
Parker will develop, for his list of dele
gates is stronger than any of the pub
lished tables that hay* yet appeared.
It is well enough for that fact to devel
op itself when the cosvention meeTs.
We have not been proclaiming Par
ker's strength, but .we believe our in
formation is thoroughly reliable. We
have been in touch with leaders from
all the states and the claims we make
are based on thisydirect information.
"As I have saifl Parker will go into
the convention with half of the votes
cast. Onthe second ballot the effect of
this tremendous lead v&U immediately
appear in change*'ihatf will be made.
With 500 votes cast for him on the
first ballot, the delegates will not be
slow to see that his n<toiination is as
sured and they will j^se no time In
bringing about that result.
"Votes of states which on the first
ballot will support favorite sons, will
give Parker the nomination, and it is
our expectation that his nomination
will be made unanimous on the second
ballot. But for the favorite son vote
the nomination, in my #opinion, would
be made on the first ballot."

Poverty and Starvation Drive
Chicago Woman to Des
CHICAGO, June 26. — Threatened
with starvation and with her husband
hopelessly insane in the asylum of Kan
kakee, Mrs. Anna Kelsdzick gave up
the struggle for existence, killed her
three small children and then ended
her own life.
Illuminating gas was the means of
destruction that she adopted and when
the bodlee were found early today
all four had been dead several hours.
The family lived in three small
rooms at 965 North Robie street and
today a constabe was to eject the
mother and her babies from the prem
ises for the non-payment of rent.
It was after Mrs. Kelsdziek had been
served with a summons to appear in
court that she decided to end the lives
of herself and little ones. The three
children, Bruno, Herman and Walter,
aged 7, 5 and 2 years respectively, were
found in bed locked in each other's
arms. The mother's lifeless body was
found lying on the kitchen floor, while
gas was escaping from a jet in the
That the woman made every pre
caution to do away with herself and
children was evident. She first wrote
and sealed a letter addressed to a rela
tive In Germany. Then she bathed
herself and donned clean linen. Each
child had also been given a bath, clean
night gowns placed upon them and the
little ones sent to the sleep from which
they will never awaken.
Several months ago Kelsdzick, who
was out of work at the time became in
sane" brooding over his troubles and
was sent to the asylum. Since that
time the mother, who was in poor
health, has had a hard struggle for
existence. Last week she became so
ill that she was unable to work any
more, and had spent her last dollar
for food for herself and the children
Saturday afternoon.
With ejectment from her home star
ing her in the face this morning and
with no money in her possession to
procure another, Mrs. Kelsdzick took
the lives of her babies and her own to
end her troubles.

Special Cable to The Glebe
NEW-CHWANG, June 26.—1t is becoming clear that the
two great armies, now practically facing each other, have
in their engagements of the past week sought to win only a
position for a decisive battle that cannot now be far away.
Sharp assaults of Japanese on the east and west of the
railroad, near Kaiping, and north of that city, near Tachichao,
undoubtedly had for their purpose a plan to force Kuropatkin.
to fight south of Hai Chen and to fight without delay a battle
which, in the event of defeat, would have made his retreat
perilous, if not impossible, because of the forces which Ku
roki has to the northeast threatening Liau-yang and Mukden,

SHANHAIKWAN, June 26.—Thjere is fighting now on the
Liaotung peninsula, thirty miles north of Telissu and forty

A three days battle raged from June 14 to 16 between
Wafantien and Wafangtu, otherwise Telissu, seven miles
apart on the railway. A disastrous Russian defeat is ad
mitted. The first estimate of Russian losses is, killed 1,300,
wounded 4,000, with 2 generals and 4 colonels and 4S of
ficers; missing, 300 men, 1 colonel, 0 officers and 1 regimental
guidon flag. Fourteen machine guns and much ammunition
was lost. The Russians abandoned their rifles, blankets,
horses, carts, caissons and tents in complete rout.
LONDON, June 27.—The Central News has received the
following dispatch from its Tokyo correspondent, dated June
26, evening:
"A detailed account of the naval battle at Port Arthur has
just been published here.
"The Russian battleships Peresviet, Poltava and Sevasto
pol and the cruisers Bayan, Askold and Novik, attempted to
emerge from the harbor at dawn on June 23, led by steamers
used for clearing the mines. At 11 a. m. the battleships Czar
evitch, Retvizan and Pobieda joined the others.
"The ships then advanced endeavoring to dispose of the
mines laid by the Japanese, but they were hindered by two
Japanese torpedo boat destroyers which had been guarding
the mouth of the harbor.
"At 3 p. m. the Japanese topedo boats exchanged shots
with seven Russian. destroyers which were covering the
clearing operations. One of the Russian destroyers was set
on fire and retired inside the harbor.
"Subsequently the Japanese decoyed the Russians out to sea
and awaited an opportunity to begin a general action, but be
tween 8 and 9 p. m. the Russian ships made for the harbor.
The Japanese torpedo boat destroyers and torpedo boats
chased the Russians and at 9:30 delivered the first attack in
consequence of which the enemy was thrown into disorder.
"During the night eight separate attacks were delivered,
lasting until dawn of Friday.
"In one of these assaults the Chirataka twice torpedoed a
battleship of the Peresviet type and sank her. A battleship of
