No Cabinet Changes


All Members Have Accepted the President’s Offer—He Approves Canal Treaty Negotiations.

     WASHINGTON, Sept. 18.—It was stated on excellent authority to-day that all members of the Cabinet have accepted the re-appointment tendered by President Roosevelt yesterday. The manner in which the President made the tender rendered it impossible for the members of the Cabinet to take any other course, as they already are in the positions and cannot decline, but must resign their places if they desire to leave the Cabinet. More than this, they all believe in the sincerity of the President in desiring their services, and in return they wish to assist him to the full extent of their powers to carry out the policies of Mr. McKinley, which Mr. Roosevelt has adopted for his administration.
     Another feature of the relations of the new President with the last Administration became known to-day, to the effect that Mr. Roosevelt has been fully advised and has approved of the negotiations in progress relative to the proposed isthmian canal treaty with England.
