THE CASUALTIES OX THE ASKOLI>.
Twelve men and one officer were killed on
hoard th* Askold. and about fifty men were
wounded. The sassy wounded have been
taken to hospitals, and the captain of the cruiser
has told thorn to be ready to sail in a week's
time. The Askold ha* nearly two hundred shell
holes in her, and it is difficult to understand
why her casualty list was not greater.
The work of repairing the cruiser hi now go

ft men working on metal Is audible all night
long. In sen days' time she can be sufficiently
patched up to render her seaworthy, but full
repairs would take much longer.
Her first and third funnels are riddled with
machine gun bullet*, and the base of another
fSJaaai has been almost entirely blown away
at the deck level ay a big shell. The after fun

the remnants of It are held up now by guy ropes

Askold forward on her starboard Bide, about

coal bunker.

A 12-inch shell exploded in her starboard ham

within reach. The deckhouse on the super

by the fragments of a shell which exploded In

CZAREVITCH'S FIGHT.
Gallant Struggle of Battleship —
Squadron Near Che-Foo.
Che-Foo. Auk. 14.— Details of the naval battle
of August 10 reaching here show that the Rus
sian battleship Czarevitch made a remarkable
struggle. When the battle opened six battle
ships on each side oposed each other on almost
parallel lines In the vicinity of Round Island.
The cruisers and torpedo boat destroyers on
both sides were ordered out of range. When the
fight had been under way for some time the
cruisers and smaller craft became engaged.
Finally the Czarevitch was surrounded by four
battleships and two cruisers. She endured hours
of terrible fighting plucklly. The *>hell Which
killed Admiral Wittsoeft rebounded from the
turret.
A message from The Associated Press corre
spondent at Tslng-Chau states that the Rus
sian vessels now Irj that harbor have not been
dismantled, as their Injuries allow them to re
main until repairs are made. Captain Matouso
vitch, of the Czarevitch, who was reported
dead, is still nllve.
An earlier report said that only th^ Czare
vitch and one torpedo boat remained at the
port, and that the Governor of Tslng-Chau. In
reply to a demand of the Japanese, consul that
the battleship should leave tho harbor, replied
that the vessel would remain, but would be dis
mantled.
Despite Admiral Sah's statement to the con
trary. The Associated Press learns positively
that two Japanese torpedo boats entered tho
harbor last night while two cruisers and three
destroyers remained outside. One of tho tor
pedo boats communicated with the Cntneae Ad
miral.
The Russian consul fears an attack on the
wireless telegraph plant here, which Is reported
to have been working perfectly. The Japanese
torpedo boats covered that vicinity.
The Associated Press launch to-night failed to
discover the Japanese squadron, but it is certain
It is not far away, maintaining the blockade
against the Russians.
Thn Japanese consul, in an interview, said
that his nation hi fighting for Its existence, nnd

Englishmen Take Conflict to Prove
Need of Big Ironclads.
London, Aug. Russia's latest naval disas

The latest details, showing that th» fighting
between. Vice Admiral Togo's fleet and the Port

miles, are held to prove the necessity for the pos

Synopsis of Arguments Given Out

Roosevelt are the leading subjects discu.s*id by
the Republican campaign textbook of 190 1. |
which is just about to be Issued. The following ;
is a synopsis of the book prepared by the Repub
lican campaign committee:
"The four great facts" which Justified the Re
publican party in asking the suppcrt of the public !
In 1900 were, first, that Its pledges or IS* had
been redeemed; second, that prosperity had corns
tia a result; third, that developments, since ISS«
had shown the fallacy of the principles upon i
which the Democracy then appealed for public
support; and, fourth, the conditions which had ;
come to other parts of the world and their people
as a result of promises fulfilled by the Republi- |
can party in the United States. These assertions |
made in the textbook of 1500 have been fully
Justified by the added experiences of another four .

THINK ROOT WILL ACCEPT
Talk at Saratoga Points to His
Nomination.
[BT TEI.E" BAPH TO TRZ TaiBTTWa,)
Saratoga, N. V., Aug. 14.— Colonel Reuben L.
Fox, secretary of the Republican Stats Commit
tee, came here last night to make arrangements
for the State convention, which meats on Septem
ber I.". The Republican headquarters will b« at
the United States Hotel, am usual. This has nor
been an exceptionally good season at the Spring*
and there will be no troub'e In caring for all
who may come.
Robert C. Morris, former prealdent of the Re
publican County Committee, who Is here with
other Republicans from various parts of u»e
- tate. thinks that Ellhu Root will nHtm^i,^
accept the nomination for Governor. He is an
enthusiastic Root man. and says that all tha
leaders with whom he talked believed, that ssast
is the one man for the nomination.
Talk of Mr. Root is about the only ktad
heard here. Lieutenant Governor Htgglna has
many friends who are working for him. but oa«
of Mr. Hlggins's closest friends said to-night:
"Higgins can be regarded as a candidate only if
Mr. Root declines to run. In that event, with an
open field, he has strong claims upon the nomina
tion, and his friends will do all they can, to bring
about his nomtntion by the State convention. "
Ex- Lieutenant Governor Woodruff's friends
are active and do not predicate their campaign
on Mr. Root's possible position. One of Mr.
Woodruffs agents who Is here looking over the
ground said to-night: Mr. Woodruff Is the leal
eai man to nominate. He s aa worked harder for
the party and sacrificed more than almost any
man In it. Kinga County is badly needed this
year to roll up a bit: majority, and Woodruff i a
the only man who could be named for Governor
that would insure a big Republican vote hi
Brooklyn. Again, WoodniS is exceptionally
strong up the State. Iv Syraeiise. where he has
large business interests, hia nomination would b»
most welcome, and the farmers and the 3tat*
grange would work for him. Kinga County
has already declared for him, and you will soon
find oth*r counties up the State :oing the sam*
thing. We Intend to get him the nomination if
the-~ is any way to iand It for him."
From all the leaders who ar» here, however
the earn* report Is heard, and that la. all the sen
timent up State is for Root. Thia Is diametrical
ly opposed to what Mr. Woodruffs frtende say
about counties up the State declaring for 'Wood
ruff. The general impression is that Root will
lined and will consent to run, and that
Lieutenant Governor Hisrgir.s will be renomi
nated. The talk is that Senator Elon R. Brown,
of Watertown. will he named for Attorney Gen
eral, though Henry B. Coman's friends Insist that
he shouM have another nomtna°
PAPER TTJBNS BEPOLICAS.
'•The Muskegon Morning News" Had Bmb
Democratic Forty-nine Years.
(BT TELEOBAPH TO THE TBIBrNK |
Muskegon. Mich.. Aug. 14.— "The Muskegon
Morning News,' which, since its founding, forty
nine years ago. has upheld Democratic prin
ciples, announced to-day that henceforth It
wouM be a Republican paper. Henry Want>\
tho publisher, ex-Democratic State Committee
man, and a lifelong Democrat, announced that
he had Joined the Republican rank*. In expla
natlon "The News" says:
This change of policy comes from a conviction
that the Democratic party of to-day Is not the
Democratic party of the days gone; from the
belief that the domination of that party at pres
ent constituted in the nation would not be con
ducive to the best interests of the people, and
from the conviction that the supremacy of the
Republican party is necessary to th» national
development and business prosperity.
