Tokio, May 2. As a result of
five days' fighting largely by heavy
artillery; the Japanese forces under
Baron T. xvtiroki crossed the Yalu.
The infantry made a gallant charge
and drove the Russians from Chin
tiencheug and Antutig where the
Russians made two stands. The
Japanese loss in the engagement is
given us seven hundred, while that
of the Russians is over eight hun
dred killed. The Japanese captured
twenty-e ght quick firing guns and
many rifles and a great quantity of
ammunition. They also took
twenty Russian officers aud many
non-commissioned officers and men.
The Russian Generals, Zassalitch
and Castoliusky, were wounded.
The Japanese now control thecstuary
of the Yalu river.
Antung is on the Manchurian
side of the Yalu estuary nnd has
previously been described as a place
highly fortified aud held by the
According. to the above dispatch
the Japanese forces are now within
thirty miles of the mountain passes.
St. Petersburg, May 2. With a
force of less than five thousand men,
the Russhns for three days impeded
the Japanese advance and prevented
the enemy from crossing the Yalu,
notwithstanding the inferiority in
number of men and guns.
Ou Friday the Japanese were
driven back with great loss. Sun
day the Japanese resumed their
artillery bombardment inflicting
heavy losses on the Russians. The
Russian affny which had no inten
tion of preventing the Japanese from
crossing retired in perfect order.
At Potiensky where the fighting
was in progress it is the plan to
worry the euemy until the mountain
passes are reached.
An Associated Press mail special
to the Advertiser says explanatory
of the above:
St. Petersburg, April 23. In
spite of the reports from Seoul and
Tokio that the Russians are mass
ing 50,000 men to resist the Japanese
crossing the Yalu river, it can be
asserted with great positiveness that
an obstinate obstruction of the
enemy's crossing is no part of Gen
eral Kuropatkin's tactics. The
Russians intend that the Japanese
shall have the river behind them
before giving battle in force.
Kuropatkin's plans in this respect
arc fully approved here. Of course,
the Russians will do all in their
power to render the crossing as
difficult and expensive as possible,
but the first decisive engagement
will occur in Manchuria, where the
Russians believe they will have all
the advantage of position.
Russian Outlook (llooiny.
Loudon, May 3. Baron Hayashi,
the Japanese Minister, says the
Russians had too guns in Manchuria
and that consequently their artillery
force is nearly one-third crippled.
He says that the spring outlook for
crops in Manchuria is bad aud that
every food source except the Siberian
railway is closed. The problem of
feeding the Russians in Manchuria
is already serious. The Japanese,
adds Baron Hayashi, are working
day and night to complete; by
October, the railway connecting
Fusan, Seoul and Wiju. They ex
pect Port Arthur will be captured
or starved out by September.
St. Petersburg, May 3. The
authorities declare that the Jnpanese
had 100,000 men aud 100 guns at
the battle ol the Yalu.
Liaoyang, April 29, The Jap
anese non-advance is attributed to
the severity of the weather. There
is much sickness in the Japanese
VOTE FOR PARK NAME.
The action of the Legislature, at its recent session, in giving Hilo's
Park the name of "Mooheau," without consulting the people of Hilo or
their representatives in the Legislature, has given rise to a great deal
of dissatisfaction, and nt the meeting of the Board of Trade last Friday
the question was taken up with a view to finding a more suitable name.
Considerable discussion followed aud many names were proposed, but it
was finally decided to appoint a committee and have it ascertain the
wishes of the people in the matter and report to the next meeting of the
Board. The committee, composed of Dr. Hayes, Mr. Madeira and Mr.
F. S. Lyman, decided to give the people of Hilo an opportunity of express
ing their preferences, and will leave the question to a vote of the people.
A ballot box will be placed in the Board of Trade rooms on Thursday,
Friday and Saturday of this week and everyone is privileged to vote for
the name that best pleases him or her on one of the ballots printed be
low. No bajlot will be counted but those taken from the newspapers
Among the names suggested are "Ocean Park," "Senside Park,"
"Hilo Purk," "Recreation Park," "Lihi-kai (seaside) Park," "Pona
liawai Park," "Piopio Park," and Liholiho Pnrk," though any other
name may be suggested and voted upon. Most of the members of the
Board were in favor of some Hawaiian name, with a view to pcrptuating
the name of some prominent personage or locality, and the name of
"Liholiho" found favor with many, as it was the name of Kamchameha
1 1 (Liholiho), who was born in Hilo, and whose reign was marked by
the breaking of the "tabu" and the abandonment of paganism.
Everyone is requested to cut out one of these ballots and cast his
vote on Thursday, Friday or Saturday of this week at the Board of '
Trade rooms, Waiauucnuc street.
I vote that the name of Hilo's
U. S. MAY CONTROL WlKKLESS.j
Cabinet Discusses Wireless System
For Mllltnry Protection.
The wireless telegraph conpany
operating in the Hawaiian Islands
may eventually come under the di
rect supervision of the United
States Government, if not be act
ually owned by the federal autho
rity. Secretary Hay recently
brought to the attention of the
cabinet the advisability of obaining
control of all wireless telegraph
plants operating on the various
coasts of the mainland, as well as
in the insular possessions. The
cabinet discussed the matter on
April 19. The subject was broach
ed by Secretary Hay in connection
with a communication received
from the Russian Government.
A short time since the Russian
military authorities forbade war
correspondents using wireless tele
graphy in the transmission of war
dispatches, and announced that
any one so caught would be shot
as a spy. The importance of wire
less telegraphy as a factor in war is
now regarded from the strategic
standpoint and its use by every
Tom, Dick and Harry would em
barrass military authorities far
more than all the land telegraphs
the world over.
It was pointed out that in the
event of a war with a foreign
nation it might be necessary, in de
fense of the Nation, for officers of
the United States to have charge
of these stations as a means of as
surance to the Government that no
communication would be establish
ed with vessels of an enemy's fleet
and that the systeni would not be
employed to the detriment of
United States interests.
The discussion was tentative in
a measure, and no definite decision
was reached. It is likely, however
that in the near future some action
will be taken that will provide for
a proper Government supervision
of the wireless system of telegraphy.
