MANY MIXES EXPLODED
Admiral Togo Has Cleared Ta-lien-Wan
Channel of Danger
LONDON". June 8. 3 a. m. Advices from
Che-Foo and elsewhers indicate the Jap
anese have begun active operations against
Port Arthur by land and sea. Several dis
patches speak of heavy firing having been
heard. It Is not believed, however, that
the Japanese are yet ready to risk a deci
sive battle on land. Admiral Togo has suc
ceeded In clearing the channel leading Into
Talien-Wan, so that troops may be disem
barked there. lie began locating mines on
June 2, and since then he has found and
exploded forty-one. Yesterday a small
eteamer was able to safely enter the har
bor. The work of locating other mines is
now continuing, and it Is expected that the
vicinity will be speedily cleared of all such
dangerous obstructions to navigation. Ad
miral Togo reports that a southerly gale
and a high sea prevailed during his opera
tions, but the men steadfastly continued
a.t their work.
The correspondent cf the Daily Telegraph
in Tokio cables: "The commander of the
fourth Japanese flotilla, who has returned
to the rendezvous of the fleet from a recon-
noLssance in the vicinity of Port Arthur,
mentions the loss of the Russian gunboat
Giliak and the blowing up of another Rus
sian, gunboat about the same time. A China
man escaped from Fort Arthur says that
the rations of the soldiers is two pounds of
bread daily, but as the officers have an
abundance of food the men are discon
tented." CHE-FOO. June 7. Preceding a sea at
tack on Port Arthur last night, the Jap
anese apparently, made a determined effort
to advance on that stronghold by land. A
Chinese Junk which left a point three miles
outh of Tort Dalny early Monday morning
has arrived here. She reports having heard
firing north of Port Arthur from 7 o'clock
Monday morning until 2 o'clock that after
noon, by which time she passed out of
heart.ig distance. It would appear that the
Japanese planned a land and sea attack on
Tort Arthur yesterday. The Russians, on
seeing this, sent their fleet out to give bat
tle. The result is not known.
Reports also come from Ten-Chow of
heavy firing being heard there from 11
o'clock last night until 2 o'clock this morn
ing. Vessels from the Miao-Tao islands
confirm this report, and so do the residents
of hills In the vicinity of this city, who
heard the firing and saw flashes out at sea
during the night. The fact that the Rus
sians were endeavoring, on Jur.e 4, to clear
the roadsteads off Port Arthur of mines
indicates an intention upon their part to
FtV3 battle outside the harbor-upon the
first favorable opportunity.
The foregoing would seem to confirm a
dispatch previously received at Che-Foo
from the Associated Press correspondent
at Ten-Chow, Shan-Tung peninsula. The
correspondent said there was firing at Port
Arthur last night, beginning at 11:) o'clock
and continuing for several hours.
A Japanese correspondent returning from
Talien-Wan says there is a persistent ru
mor there that the Japanese battleship Ya
shlma struck a mine off that port recently
and was sunk. Chinese arrivals from Ta-llen-AVan
are unable to conflrm the story.
ST. PETERSBURG. June 8. 1 a. m. The
government, it is authoritatively said to
night, has no more information than the
public of happenings in the neighborhood
of Port Arthur. The lack of officials news
from southern Llao-Tung was responsible
for the unusual number of rumors yester
day among the reports from Che-Foo and
elsewhere that the Russian squadron had
made a sortie from Port Arthur and that
the Japanese had b3un a land attack upon
the fortress. The general staff could neither
confirm nor deny these stories any more
than similar ones during the past forty
eight hours. However, it was pointed out
that, while a preliminary shelling of the
land defenses of Port Arthur was not im
probable, it is too early to expect news of a
perlous assault, which could not be pressed
with any prospect of success until siege
guns have been landed at Dalny. brought
overland twenty miles, emplaced and all
the arduous preliminary work or a sys
tematic advance against the outer works of
Tort Arthur completed.
GEN. KUROPATKIN IS
STILL AT LI AO-YANG
ST. PETERSBURG, June 7. While it is
t undoubtedly true that a very active Rus
sian force is' operating on the Liao-Tung
peninsula In the hope of impeding and
possibly crippling the Japanese army com
manded by General Oku, the number and
character of this force are shrouded in
myfctery. Figures are freely bandied about,
but it Is Impossible to ascertain the exact
facts. It is doubtful even If the general
tft is fully advised of General Kuropat-
According to accepted stories here Vice
roy Alexleff insisted that Kuropatkin
should not leave Port Arthur to its fate and
the advance of troops, the strength of
which is not known here, may be- due to
his pressure. But two things are certain
the strength of the main army at Liao
Tang has not been appreciably weakened
by the force sent south and the movement
was not ordered by Emperor Nicholas.
The Associated Press is assured bv a
member of the Emperor's suite that the
stories that the differences between Vice
roy Alexleff and General Kuropatkin on
this subject were referred to the Emperor,
wno. in turn, submitted them to the conn
cil of war. which agreed on the, advisability
of ordering an advance, are absolutely
false. The Associated Press informant reit
erated the statement, cabled June 3. that
the Emperor is not attempting to Impose
his views upon Kuropatkin. saying further
that the Emperor considered that the mill
tary situation has distinctly improved from
the standpoint or the ruture.

his main force, is at l.iao-iang.

ST. PETERSBURG. June 7. The Grand
Duke Alexia, commander-in-chief of the
navy, according to an apparently reliable
report, which, however. Is not officially con
firmed, has obtained the permission of the
Emperor to create a third Pacific squadron
from the vessels of the Black sea fleet and
permission has 'already been obtained from
Turkey to take the ships through the Dar
danelles on the condition that they will not
return. This squadron will be composed,
according to the report, of the battleships
Bostlslev, Dvenadzat, Apostoloff and Tria
Sviatitella and will be accompanied by tor
pedo boats and torpedo boat destroyers and
will sail for the far East simultaneously
with the Baltic squadron. The Associated
Press is unable to obtain any confirmation
of the report.
LONDON, June 7. The Foreign Office has
not received any request from Russia or
Turkey to agree to the passajje of the Rus
sian Black sea fleet through the Darda

less would be delighted to get rid of Rus
sia's Black sea fleet, but the passage of
warships through the Dardanelles would be
a distinct contravention of the treaty, per
mission for which has neither been asked
nor is likely to be granted if asked for.

BODY OP DISTILLERY
FIRE VICTIM FOUND
Man Who Possibly Was Responsi
ble for the Explosion Was
Seeking Whisky Barrel Leaks.
PEORIA. 111., June 7. One more body,
that of Joseph Zimmerman, was taken
from the ruins of the Corning distillery to
day. The remains were found in a part of
the building where the fire was most fierce
and there was not enough of the body left
to make a handful. Identification was
made possible by the fact that Zimmer
man's watch was only partly destroyed,
and that his hammer and lamp, with which
he had been searching for leaks in the bar
rels, and which some claim was responsible
for the disaster, were also found. Of the
fourteen men who died In the fire the bodies
of ten have been recovered, and of these
seven have been Identified and claimed by
relatives. The remaining three are in such
condition that identification Is impossible.
The search of the ruins for the four bodies
NEW YORK, June T.-Mrs. Nan Tatter
son, who has been held in the Tombs prison
in connection with the mysterious death of
Caesar Young, the wealthy bookmaker,
who was shot while riding in a cab with
the young woman last Saturday, was this
afternoon taken before Justice Clarke, of
the Supreme Court, on a writ of habeas
corpus. At the close of the arguments
Judge. Clarke took the papers and said he
would give his decision at the earliest pos
sible hour. The prisoner was taken back
to the Tombs.
A great crowd gathered in the courtroom
when Mrs. Patterson was brought before
Judge Clarke. The prisoner was accom
panied only by the warden of the Tombs
prison. When the proceedings were begun
Coroner Brown produced a. copy of the
affidavit on which the woman is held by the
Attorney Unger, for Mrs. Fatterson, re
ferring to the affidavit, said they were con
fronted by a paper which purported to be a
return, but was In such shape that he
doubted the district attorney's office was
responsible for it. He then demurred for
mally to the return. "This loose paper is
for a dilatory purpose." declared Mr.
Unger. lie then went Into the law as to
coroners' inquests, and said that a coroner
had no power to imprison a person accused
of crime before the inquest unless the per
son was not in custody. In order to enable
the coroner to act there must be informa
tion laid before him that a murder has
been committed," said Mr. Unger.
"Or suicid'" interrupted Justice Clarke.
Mrs. Patterson never took her eyes from
her counsel's face as he was making the
argument, but she gave not the slightest
indication of nervousness or anxiety over
the outcome. Her demeanor showed she
might have been one of the half dozen
women spectators in the courtroom.
Assistant District Attorney Sanford said
it would be a great pleasure to the coroner
if he could discharge the woman, but he
could not under the pure queion of law.
The information had been laid before him
that a crime had been committed. The as
sistant district attorney went on to describe
the wound and said that the woman was
the only one who was near the dead man.
"The pistol was held so close to the coat
that It could not have been held by any
body but the defendant or the dead man.
and from the nature of the wound the dead
man could not have returned the pistol to
his coat pocket," said Mr. Sanford, as he
asked the court to dismiss the writ.
"From what I can read In the code."
said Justice Clarke, "the coroner has only
jurisdiction after a Jury has been im
paneled. There has been no Inquisition."
"No," replied Mr. Sanford. "But a jury
has been .summoned and the coroner Is act
ing its a magistrate."
"I shall have to examine these papers."
said Justice Clarke. 1 do not know just
how she is held."
"Nor anybody else," said Lawyer Unger.
The question of bail was then raised.
Counsel said: "She is held in &.0O0."
"Five thousand dollars?" asked the court
in surprise. "Why, what is she charged
with? If she is charged with murder in the
first degree that Is not bailable. Is she
held as a witness?"
"I don't know," replied Mr. Unger. "That
la just what we are trying to find out."
"If she is not charged with anything how
can she be held?" asked Justice Clarke, and
he added: "I think she had better be re
manded, and I will give my decision at the
earliest possible hour."
After Justice Clarke had announced that
he would take the papers and announce his
decision later the crowd was hustled out
of the courtroom and Mrs. Patterson taken
through the justice's chambers to the
street. The crowd, which rushed from the
building, reached the street Just in time to
see the carriage and her guard whirl around
the corner on the way to the Tombs.
John R. Patterson, of Washington, father
of the prisoner, visited her soon after she
was taken back to prison. They sat to
gether In the reception room and conversed
in low tones for ten minutes. Their conver
sation was earnest and several times the
young woman wept convulsively. Her fa
ther was plainly affected by her plight, and
as he rose to go he was heard to say,
"Well, In that case I shall stand by you."
Mr. Patterson left the prison as his
daughter was led back to her cell, and as
he emerged on the street h appeared
greatly depressed. When asked if he had
anything to say Mr. Patterson replied:
"The less said the better."
He was joined outside the prison by two
young men and they departed together.
J. Morgan Smith, brother-in-law of Mrs.
Patterson, appearec at the district attor
ney's office late this afternoon, accompa

with Assistant District Attorney Garvan

DEMANDED $50 PAYMENT
Police Say Australian's Grip Was
Packed Ready to Leave City
Protests Good Intentions.
Jack Sibby, a dapper little Austrian, who
has been rooming at 240 North Illinois
street, was arrested yesterday afternoon
by Detectives Splann and Haley on a
charge of false pretenses. Sibby is sus
pected of trying to defraud persons by in
ducing them to enter a contract calling for
their aid in the development of placer
mines in the Nome, Alaska, regions. The
detectives clklm that Sibby's conduct in
offering his proposition savored of crook
edness. Last Sunday he advertised in the news
papers and ottered to take twenty-live men
to Falrbank and Irene creeks, in the Nome
river region, for $10) each. He claims to
own a placer claim there, liy the terms
of the contract each man was to pay his
money to Sibby, who was to charter a car
to take the party to Seattle, Wash., and
from there the trip to the mines was to !kj
made by water. After they were safely
landed and put to work, each man was
to receive $7 per day for his work and one
sixth of all the gold he took out. Work
under these conditions was guaranteed lor
Amiel Uaumgard. living at 532 Prospect
street, was one of the first persons to
answer the advertisement. The young man
offered to place J0 with wine iirm to show
his good faith, but he Fays Sibby Insisted
on his having the cash in his own hands.
This incident made Uaumgard suspicious
and he reported the matter to Acting Cap
tain of Detectives Holtz.
Yesterday afternoon Uaumgard was sent
back ;o. Sibby's house by the detectives, as
a decoy and when he was in the room,
closing the deal, the officers walked in and
made the arrest. Sibby had told Itaum
gard that he only needed one more man
to make up his party; that he was going
to charter a car yesterday and leave for
the gold fields Friday.
Pinky Caun, a lif teen-year-old girl, who
lives with Mr. and Mrs. M. G. Cahn. the
keepers of the rooming house where Sibby
was staying, says that he recently told her
that he was going away soon, and that he
would give her $1,(00 and see that she had
an opportunity to go on the stage if she
would accompany him. The little girl is a
relative of the Cahns.
Sibby reported to the police several days
ago that he had been enticed into a room
by a colored woman and robbed of $1L0.
He told the detectives yesterday that ho
was short of money, and that lie had in
tended to take the men to Alaska for
down and the other $3) after arriving at
the gold regions.
He has a certificate of labor, showing
that he worked -a claim in the Boulder
creek region, three years ago. He said,
in speaking of the matter to a newspaper
man, that he could have taken twenty-live
men to tho claim for $v'0. thus leaving
him a- balance of $G'0 to begin work on.
He said he failed to see tho wrong in
this. When arrested he had $75 and some
change on his person. Iate yesterday
afternoon A. S. Griswold, of 1C0 East Geor
gia street, called at the house on Illinois
street to close a contract with Sibbv and
he congratulated himself heartily at th-2
police station because he still had his $10).
The officers say Sibby's grip was packed
and that he was ready to have. When he
reported the hs of his money the o;hvr
day he gave San Francisco as his h m'.
Detective Holtz thinks tbat many more
cares of men have made deposits in the
hope of going to the gold t'nds will be

CRIPPLE CREEK, Cel.. June T.-Under
the regi.ne of hundreds of deputy sheriffs
and abcut 150 militiamen, receiving their
orders from Edward Bell, a wealthy mino
owner, who succeeded Sheriff Robertson,
when he resigned under threats of lynching
yesterday, this gold mining distilct xassed
a comparatively peaceful day. Throughout
the day deputies and soldiers searched the
hills for union miners, and the sum total
of the day's arrests was nineteen. This
swelled he number of men conlined In the
"bull pea" to considerably over LW, and to
night twenty-four of them were placed
aboard u special train and deported from
the district. A guard of deputies rode out
of the district with them. The men were
residents of Cripple Creek, Victor, Inde
pendence, Goldfield. Anaconda and Altman.
They were all active unionists and served
as leaders in the strike now pending".
Three additional city ofHeeis were forced
to resign their office to-day, namely, Chief
of Police Graham. Night Marshal Hardey
and Justice of the Peace Harrington. Their
reputed sympathy for unionism led to this
action. In each case a committee of the
Citizens' Alliance waited upon them and
compelled them to act immediately under
pain of violence.
Sixteen deputies, armed with sawed-off
shotguns, visited the union store and mada
a thorough search for weapons. They were
rewarded with rinding a rifle and a. shot
gun. Subsequently they went to union
headquarters in an effort to find the union
records. Their efforts were unavailing.
All the injured lu the explosion at In
dependence and the rioting in Victor are
reported doing well. No definite clew. It
is understood, has been obtained through
the bloodhounds which were started on tho
trail of the persons who placed the infernal
machine under the station at Independence.
CLASH MAY BE AVERTED.
While the tension Is tightly drawn and,
the whole district has taken rdes in tha
bitter feeling existing betweci the Mine
Owners' Association and the unionists, it
is thought that a clash will be. averted for
the reason that most, if not all, of tho
union leaders are in durance. Tho ctrects
of this city are teing constant! patrolled
by deputies and soldiers.
There is a minority element that wants
to hang S. W. O'Connell. former marshal
of Victor, suspended and under irrest, und
also Alfred Mljler, charged wtth having
started the riot which resulted n the kill
ing of Roxio McGee at the mass.meeting in
Victor yesterday afternoon and t'-everal oth
er leaders. No hanging will tiko place,
however. In all probability, umess resist
ance is offered by word or action of tho
prisoners. It would require b"t little to
have a wholesale hanging.
Virgil King, a union leader, lind fifteen
others, arrested in Cripple Cr-e to-day,
have been taken to Victcr for Deportation.
The building owned and occupied by Min
eis' Union No. 40 in Cripple rcek is in
charge of the militia. The froft windows
have been demolished and the ?ig sign of
the W. F. O. M. torn down.
All officeholders whose resignations have
been demanded have furnished hem when
threatened with hanging."
