panies. The principal charge Is that
of misconduct in office, in obstnn ting

to furnish the postal service with its
nioney-ordcr blanks. Norman Metcalf
was employed as a clerk in the office
of the Wynkoop. Hallenbeck & Craw
ford Company at a salary of $30 a
week. It Is alleged thero was an agree
ment between them that there should
be no Inspection of the forms swpplied
by the company that on account of that
agreement tho forms were printed on
inferior paper; that only one side of
them was lithographed, while the con
tf t calted for the lithographing of
both-lies, apu WjbV "by oUiet devices
thetompany was enabled to save large,
sums of money at the expense of the
government. It Is asserted by the post
office authorities that the government

persons indicted as tho result of the
prohinf that has been In progress since

London. Oct 6. Te three eeks
cabinet crisis has ended In a c. nner
more remarkable and drmmatl than
that of its inception. Mr. B l.our's
new ministry affords a measure of the
enormous dl.Tkulty he has had . to con
tend with in the task of reconstruc
tion, and its composition seems to in
dicate that the premier himself can
have little belief of Its durability. The
most sanguine supporters of the gov
ernment exprers the smallest hopes
of such an administration living many
months, and the prevalent idea is that
there will be a general election before
The Duke of Devonshire, who was
leader of the Conservative party In
the house of lords, it was announced,
has resigned the office of lord presi
dent of the council, and the king has
accepted his resignation.
The new cabinet was also announc
ed. It is composed as follows:
William St. John Brodrick, formerly
secretary for war, succeeds Lord
George Hamilton as secretary for In
dia; Austen Chamberlain postmaster
ge neral, succeeds Mr. Ititchie as chan
cellor of the- exchequer.
Alfred l.yttleten. recorder of Oxford,
succeeds Jrsc ;h Chamberlain as Sec
retary lor tl.e colonies.
II. t). Arnold l-'orster, secretary to
the admiralty, succeeds Mr. Brodrick
us secretary lor war.
Graham Murray, lord advocate of
Scotland, s.m c e oils Lord Balfour, of
Burb igh, as seeretary for Scotland.
l,ord Stanley, financial secretary of
the war office, succeeds Austen Cham
berlain us postmaster general.
One convquenco of the Duke of
Devonshiie's retirement is extremely
unfortunate for the government. It
will bring the leadership of the house
of lords to the unpopular Lord Lans

news has been received here from the

stantial details given seem to Indicate

HOSIERY MILL BLOWN UP
Boiler Expletion at Beverly, N.
Wrecks Plant and Kills Watchman.
Rererly. N. J.. Oct. 6. The large
boiler In the hosiery mill of Turner
Blrkhead. of this city, exploded with
a fearful crash that jarred Beverly,
wrecked the engine room and two
thirds of the main building and in
stantly killed Alfred Stucky.the watch
man. The building Immediately he
came enveloped In flames, and damage
to the extent of $10,000 was done before
the fire was gotten under control. The
loss is partially covered by insurance.
The crash of the exploding boiler
was heard and felt within a radius of
five miles, and fearful of an earth
quake people rushed to their doors.
In this city the buildings shook, glass
and dishes rat tied, and it was not until
a bright flame shot up in the west that
those who were awakened by the
shock realized the situation.
The city fire department soon had a
plug stream on the burning structure,
and after an hour's work the flames
were subdued. Meanwhile the body of
Stucky, which had been blown several
feet from the building by the force of
the explosion, was removed to h.s
home. The body was badly torn, the
clothing rent Into Bhreds, and death
must have come quickly.
What caused the explosion la not
known, since the boiler was recently
Inspected and pronounced In good con
dition, but it is presnmed thai Stucky,
who was an old man, turned sold water

Refused to Leave White House and
BADLY INJURED IN STRUGGLE
Washington. Oct C. A desperate
hand-to-hand encounter with an arm
ed insane man who was determined
to see President Roosevelt occurred
In the vestibule of the White House.
The man, who gave his name as Peter
Elliott, a machinist, of Minneapolis,
Minn., was overpowered by the offi
cers and carried to a police van.
which had been summoned. He was
placed in the van in the custody of
two officers. Seeming to realize then
for the first time that he was under
arrest. Klliott began a furious strug
gle with his cantors for liberty. He
drew a revolver from the risht side'
pocket of his trousers and attempted
to shexjit Oltiecr James Cissell. Thei
officer grabbed his hand and wrench-'
ed the weapon from his grasp. Elii-j
tt's Ftruggles v.cre so fierce, how-j
ever, that the two officers in their j
cramped quarters of the van wer ii:i- :
able to overcome him. Officer Ciss '11 ,
the n drew bis re velver and tired two
shots to attract attention. I
In the siru:;
van Klliott had broken a glass panvl ,
with his hand, severely cutting his
head and face. Officer Cissell bus-'
tained a serious cut on his right iin.i,
two Inches of llesh being cut out of
tho fleshy part of the arm. Ho suf-,
fered considerably from loss of blood,'
but his Injury is not serious. The van
was hurried to the Emergency Hos
pital, where the Injuries of Cissell and
Klliott were dressed.
Several days ago Secretary Locb re-,
celved n letter written on letter paper j
of the St. James1 Hotel, this city. Tho
letter enclosed a photograph of Elliott
and an incoherent request for an inter- j
view with President Roosevelt. The;
letter was Blgned "Peter Ell," the'
statement being mado immediately;
tinder the signature that the writer,
waa registered at the hotel as Peter;
Elliott. It waa evident to Secretary j
Iioeb that his correspondent was in-;
sane, and he issued directions at once
that the officers on duty both at the
White House and at the executive of-1
flees should be on their guard against
him. The photograph was turned overj
to the secret service officers. )
Nothing was seen of the man until
the president attended services atj
Grace Reformed Church, when Elliott
appeared near the entrance to the1
church and made an effort to speak to
the president, but he was foiled in his'
endeavor by the secret service officers. !
He next appeared at the executive of-!
flees and was turned away.
At the Emergency Hospital, where
his wounds were dressed, Elliott said
That he was a Swede and that his home '
was In Minneapolis. From the hospital
the man waa taken to the First Pre
cinct police station and incarcerated
In one of the detention wards.
The police surgeons, after a careful
examination of Elliott, certified that
he was Insane. An order was issued
immediately for his removal to the
St. Elizabeth's Hospital for the Insane.!
Elliott said he ccme to Washington'
from Paterson, N. .1. He also said he :
had been in Lancaster, Pa. When
locked up at the police station he made
a long, rambling statement as to tho
reasons for his action.

titratiger followed up hia first liberali

knew no bounds.
The only exception to Punts' admir

As Lumpy ended, a change In Run's'

Stranger was quicker.
"Throw up yer 'auds!" said Runts,
and Lumpy Instantly obeyed. Then
the Texan gave him a homily.

Scratches was able to possess himself
of the third chair. At this juncture
the Kid Insisted that the stranger
should drink at bis expense.
"Three!" he called to tho barkeeper.
In a moment the drinks were ou the

passed It to Runts.
"There's yer liquor!" he cried cor

P.ut the devoted Runts could not for

and was withdrawn into bis mouth.

und In a trice both men were covered.
'Tut up yer 'unds!" he cried for the
second time that night.
The crowd, startled, looked up and
saw Scratches and the Kiel, their hands
uloft, staring fearfully Into the deadly
tubes. Then Runts, now almost sober
under the stimulus of his Idea, ad
dressed th two:
"Ye're a nice pair of galoots! Strolled

Rut .Serutehcd had regained his nerve

"It's a lie! There ain't no knockout

Scratches' face grew white, but he
had no choice. Slowly be lowered one
