It is recognized on all hands that the jurymen thus far selected are much above the average, and if the other four should prove to be of as high a standard, there is not likely to be a miscarriage of justice, so far a« the jury is concerned.

YOU* NEWSDEALER WILL KEEP ONE FOR YOU IF YOU TELL BIN TODAY DIES IN CATHEDRAL Marchioness Tragically Brings Her Own End About Speoial Cable to The Globe MILAN. April 21—In the midst of the great throng gathered in II Du omo. the famous vast cathedral of Milan, during Good Friday services this afternoon, the Marchioness Maria Pallavieini. viscountess of Trent, Aus tria, shot and killed herself under cir cumstances intensely dramatic and ex traordinary. The suicide occurred at the moment of the most intense re ligious concentration in the great ca thedral in which were gathered 15, --000 of the devout Catholics of Milan. A revolver shot rang out when the great congregation knelt ' silently about the crucifix in the darkened church during the solemn moments of .veneration. The ceremony of stations of the cross had just been concluded. An Austrian "priest hurried to the side of the countess and found he"r "dying, with a frightful wound in the fore htad, where* the bullet had entered. Her death occurred a few moments later, while she was on the way to a hospital. The Marchioneßs Maria Pal lajtdnl was renowned throughout Italy for her great beauty. WELD MACHINE OUT : OF CENSUS TAKERS State Officials Frankly Avow Their Political Inten tions "Politics" will be the slogan of the Minnesota state census bureau. Meek and lowly enumerators, who tremblingly Inquire the age of coy spinster* and chronicle in strictest de tail the number, size and physical pe culiarities of a backwoods farmer's canine following, must wear the badge of Republicanism. This ukase has gone forth In the first literature on the sub ject—the applications for positions which come from the office of the sec-, retary of state. In order to secure an opportunity to earn 2 cents for each name enrolled it ■will be necessary for the applicant to secure the signature and recom mendation of the members of his legis lative district. They must vouch for him and stamp his name as one of the chosen few. If there are three legis lators in the territory which he desires to cover, all must approve of his ap plication. If there are only two, he must not only secure their signatures, but he must also make his peace with the chairman of "a political party" in order to secure a place. Students of civil government In Min nesota recognize that with the secre tary of state "a political party" means the Republican party. Throughout the state the Republicans are in the ma jority in the legislative districts, with possibly three exceptions, so that the requisite in every case would be Re publican signatures. With census enumerators approxi mating 2,700 in number required to count the noses in Minnesota, a pollt ital machine- of no mean proportions is to be built up by the state census bureau by virtue of the clever plan adopted by the Republican secretary of- state and his census bureau asso ciates. The value of an organiza tion is proverbial in politics. The sec retary may have heard of Its strength when called upon to produce results in a poMtical campaign. And it is said that Mr. Hunspn has political ambi tions not entirely confined to the hon orable office of secretary of state. With an abandon that is refreshing iii its frankness, the application blanks which candidates for appointment as enumerators are expected to sign, tell the whole story of the politics In the bureau. In a footnote, to the blank is a statement that the applicant must be indorsed and recommended by three members of the legislative district in which the application is marie. In districts where there are but two leg islative members the third signature may be made by the chairman of the 6 unty or ward committee. PRICE TWO CENTS ?!V^c'?'nt S LION SHOWS HIS TEETH TO THE BEAR BRITISH WARSHIPS READY TO BACK JAPAN King Edward's Fleet on the China Station Gives Evidence of Great Ac tivity—Could Easily Turn the Scale in the Coming Naval Engagement . — Rojestvensky's Squadron Is Re . ported Having Left Kamranh Bay Spetial ("able to The Globe RONGKONO, April 22.— Britain's powerful first class armored cruiser Hogue has been ordered to get ready to put to sea on two hours* notice, with full steam up. There Is noticeable ac tivity among all the vessels of the British fleet on the China station. These facts are significant win n taken in connection with the knowl edge that Japan has energetically pro tested to France against allowing Ro- Jestvensky's fleet to remain in Indo- Chinese waters and that the Japanese press and public are clamoring for giv ing effect to the war alliance between England and Japan contemplated in such a case. The British fleet on the China sta tion, under command of Vice Admiral Sir Gerard Noel, could easily turn the scale of naval war in favor of Japan. Togo and Rojestvensky are nearly matched In numbers of ships and guns. Noel has five battleships (four first class) and eight cruisers, carrying in the aggregate 190 puns ranging in cal iber from 4.7 Inch to 12 inch, and 338 guns in their secondary batteries. Be sides "these heavy fighting vessels, he has five torpedo boat destroyers, nine river gunboats and a lot of less for midable craft. The battleship squadron consists of 13,000 ton Glory (flagship) Albion. Ocean and Vengeance, and the 10,500 ton Centurion. This squadron is equipped with sixteen 12 inch guns. MAY ACQUIRE A KING Bulgaria Likely to Change if Crete Does VIENNA, April 21.—Dispatches from Sofia say it is declared in political cir cles there that if Crete should be an nexed to Greece the kingdom of Bul garia will immediately be declared. The action of the Cretan chamber of deputies in unanimously declaring in favor of the union of Crete with Greece has aroused much interest here, but it appears to be the opinion in official and diplomatic circles that the four protecting powers of Crete will not at present permit of a change in the status quo. It is believed, however, that if the powers treat Cretan aspirations indul gently it will have a very disquieting effect on Bulgaria and Macedonia. If Crete should be freed from Turkish Sovereignty, which is no more than a formality, it is argued that Prince Fer dinand would at once declare the king dom of Bulgaria, without assent from the powers, which his recent visits to Berlin, London, Paris and Rome failed to secure. The porte's sovereignty over Bulgaria !s no stronger than over Crete, and Bulgaria would dare just .is much as Crete and be encouraged to proceed if Crete should be successful. This is advanced as the principal rea son why the powers will not agree to the Cretan aspirations. The gendar merie and foreign troops now in Crete are thought to be sufflc ient to preserve order there. CANEA. Crete. April 21.—Two Rus sian gunboats anchored off Canea on Thursday on the occasion of the-open ing of the Cretan chamber of deputies. The censor, however, eliminated from press telegrams all mention of the presence of these vessels. A sensation has been created here by the publication in Greek papers of a story of a plot of the revolutionary opposition to kidnap Prince George. The story is discredited, but precaution ary movements of International troops have been made in consequence. THIS DELAYS REPAIRS TO THE BATTLESHIPS Serious Defect Is Found in the Dry Dock at Boston BOSTON, April 21.—A serious flaw in the new dry dock at the Charleston navy yard has been developed by se vere tests recently made, and it is be lieved that at least one month will be required to effect the necessary re pairs. A large crack has appeared in the heavy cast iron casing of one of the big pumps, and the entire sec tion, which weighs several tons, will have to be replaced. Four battleships have been ordered here for repairs at the conclusion of the maneuvers In the Caribbean sea and work on these ships will undoubtedly be retarded. Kills the Wrong Man BIALYSTOK.

April 81.-" United States Senator Orville Hitch* cock Platt of Connecticut died at his summer home in this, his native town, tonight of pneumonia. The end tame almost unexpectedly, the immediate cause being the breaking of the ab scesses which had formed in the right lung and which produced strangula tion.

During the wait he com plained of a slight chill in consequence of which he returned directly to his country home here. This was Friday, March 31. Service Was Conspicuous WASHINGTON, April 21.—That the death of Senator Platt is a distinct loss to the senate and to the country at large is the unanimously expressed opinion of public men. He was a fre quent visitor at the white house and at all times consulted by the presi dent when important matters were un der discussion. During his Bervlce of twenty-six years Senator Platt took an active part In the proceedings of the upper branch of congress, tilled many important committee assign ments and demonstrated his capacity in handling questions of national in terest.

Senator Platt was frequent ly called to the chair to preside tem porarily over the senate and during the Swayne impeachment trial sat throughout as the presiding officer. Will Elect Successor HARTFORD. Conn.. April 21. —A suc cessor to Senator Platt will probably ba elected by the general assembly which is now In biennial session. The election will be for the rest of the term, which will ex pire in 1909.' It is expected that th«r» will be several candidates for the vacant seat, but out of respect to the memory of Senator Platt. it is thought the election will be delayed until just before proroga tion late in May. Senator Platt was born July 19. 1827. and from 1849 to the time of his death, practiced law at Merklen, Conn. After many years' service as member of both branches of the legislature he was elected to the federal senate and took his seat March 18. 1879. filling the vacancy caused by the death of Orris 8.
