1 I fil. PETERSBURG. May 3. The el-
)' lcnce of the authorities hero re-
i the fighting on the Yalu river
Is Interpreted ominously and there
'! t Is a consequent prevalence of
all sorts of irresponsible rumors
j - regarding the magnitude of the Russian
losses some figures going as high as
i ' 3000. These manifestly are gross ex-
i ' jj aggeratlons.
1 The absence of official information Is
, explained by the general staff by the
' fact that a few Japanese have succeed-
cd In getting iu the rear of the Russian
i , position and cutting the wires between
J Tal San Cheng and Feng "Wang Cheng.
' . Heavy Losses Sustained.
'i i y Heavy losses are admitted, but they
( ' u ra'C not believed to exceed a few hun-
, j 1 dred and a few guns. The latter, while
', ! protecting the retreat of the Russian
i. force from Antung to Kulicn Cheng,
1 j i had to be abandoned owing to the loss
J of the horses. The breech-locks, how-
i ' ever, were carried away, so the guns
;r will be of no service to the enemy.
;t According to the latest Information,
,f Gen. Sassulitch Is retiring In good order
, along the main road and the Japanese
i , are not following him. Details are ex
pected as soon as Gen. Sassulitch Is
i ; J again In communication.
h J There Is no confirmation of the report
that cither Gen. Sassulitch or Gen.
; j ICashtallnsky Is wounded.

, In the darl: and Is the prey of Idle ns
, ' mors. The war bulletin boards are bare
i l and not a single dispatch has come
1 through from the front. The figures of
' 1 the Russian losses given from Japanese
sources in the dispatches from abroad
i are carefully eliminated by the cen
sors. j , The fighting at Chin Gow was ex-
J ,,; eeedlngly severe and stubborn. Tho
v,1 . Japanese took a position on both flanks
i after Chin Gow had been shelled, and

I Only 9000 Russians Engaged.
; . According to the general staff, only
r 1 about 9000 Russians were actually en-
' , I gaged at Kulien Cheng, and along the
, ",, Lltzavena were two regiments of Sl-
I j berian rlfiemen of 3000 men each.
j Gen. Mlstchensko. commander of the
1 ( Eastern Cossack brigade, had 1500 Cos-
j ' j sacks protecting the Russian right Hank
l j lower down the Yalu and also a brigade
j of artillery, four batteries of eight guns
t each. Gen. Kartzoff, with 1500 Cos-
i 1 j sacks, was higher up the Yalu. guarding

ST. PETERSBURG IS
ELECTRIFIED OVER NEWS
ST. PETERSBURG, May 4. St. Pet
ersburg Is electrified by the Pcn3atlonal
news of fighting on land and nea. From
Gen, Kuropatkln convoying Lieut. Gen.
Zassalltch'n report, came graphic de
tails of the battle of Turenchen na tho
combat on the banks of tho Yalu Is of
ficially designated, which show the
savage effort to hold a position com
manded by the Japanese and their or
derly retreat to Feng "Wang Cheng,
where they arc now entrenched, con
ducting enrouto a brilliant rear guard
engagement In which they Inflicted
heavy losses on the enemy.
Vlveroy Alexleffs command of Port
Arthur has been slgnullzed by the re
pulse of and tho desperate attempt of
tho Japanese to close the entrance to
the harbor. Adding to this quota of the
war news the official report of the ap
pearance of a number of Japanese ships
off Kalplng and Slnluchen, on the west
coast of the Llao Tung peninsula beldw
New Chwang, foreboding the disem
barkation of Japanese troops with the
Intention of cutting off Port Arthur,
this war may now be said to have be
gun In deadly earnest.
lestcruay was a day ot anxiety anu
excitement among all classes of poo
pic, from the Emperor in the palace to
the tzarskoye selok, where by special
wire, his majesty Is receiving advices
from tho front, to the lowest moujlk
standing before tho bulletins, eagerly
listening to the dispatches as they were
read by educated persons In the crowd.
Important as was Alexleff's achieve
ment, in spite of the magnitude of the
attempt of the Japanese who this time
sent in ten fireshlps to block the Porb
Arthur entrance, It is dwarfed by tho
details of the fighting on the Yalu,
showing the severe losses suffered by
the Russians who have removed S00
wounded alone to Feng Wang Cheng,
while it is estimated that the Japanese
loss 13 between 3000 and 1000
If this statement of the Japanese loss
is correct, the Russian authorities say
that Gen. Zassalltch must be given
credit for carrying out that part of his
ordecs to make the crossing of tho Yalu
as costly as possible to the enemy. Zas
salltch's report Indlctcs that the Japan
ese began the battle by shelling the
right flank and attracting attention to
that point and then a flanking move
ment to the left began In force. Unfor
tunately, Zassalltch had only 10,000, of
whom 2000 were unable to participate in
the fighting, as they were occupying
Antung, and Gen. Kurokl, appreciating
the Inability of his opponent to bring
up reserves, threw his weighty forces
upon the points selected for attack.
The Japanese had from 35,000 to 40,000
men and the greater number of guns,
many of them being of heavier caliber
than those of the Russians. Thus out
numbered, tho Russians actually en
gaging more than five to one, the Ja
panese did succeed1!!! flanking two Rus
sian battalions on both sides and en
veloping them In the rear. The latter,
with music playing a martial air and
with fixed bayonets, a priest holding
aloft a cross, charged, and the -Japanese
opened before them, after which
they succeeded In reaching the supports.
It was one of the most gallant actions
of a bloody day. It Is regretted both In
military and church circles that the
priest was severely wounded.
JAPANESE ARMY RESTING
AND BURYING ITS DEAD
SEOUL, Korea, May 3. Later reports
of the Russian reverse on the Yalu are
to the effect that the Japanese cap
tured twenty-eight ymall rapid-fire
guns, besides twenty field guns. They
also captured thirty Russian officers
and over 500 men, many of whom were
found hiding in the underbruah by the
Japanese searching parties. Cossack
ofilcers, who were captured, place the
number of Russians killed and wounded
at S00, but It Is thought that this un
derestimates the Russian loss, which Is
considered very much greater.
The Japanese army Is resting, bury
ing Its dead and caring for Its wound
ed. The Japanese thoroughly occupy
the area over which the- fighting ex
tended, and are now scouting the hilly
country to whk'h the Russian forces re
tired. The Japanese residents of Seoul are
preparing to hold an Impressive memo
rial service In honor of those of their
countrymen who have fallen- In battle
and al a great celebration commemo
rating tho victories attained by Japa
nese arms?, to be held on May 6.

eighteen siege guns which were brought

The long range of these guns enabled

HARD AT WORK
Framing Timbers for
Republicans to Make Tariff
Plank Principal One In
Will Not, However, Bind Party Not
to Change It Later on If
WASHINGTON, May 3. The plat
form to be adopted by the Re
publican National convention
has been among the topics dis
cussed at the conferences which have
taken place recently at tho White
House, In committee rooms at the capl
tol and at different residences where a
number of Republicans havo been as
sembled. Senator Lodge, who is slated
for chairman of the Committee on Res
olutions at the convention has prepared
preliminary sketches of various topics
that be thinks should be treated and
has submitted them to senators and
others for their approval or suggestion
as to the amendment. It Is expected
that before the convention meets a
complete platform will be prepared
which will have the approval of the
Tariff Principal Feature.
The principal feature of the platform
will be the tariff plank which will de
clare In the strongest terms the adher
ence of the Republican party to the
principle of protection, but will not bind
the party not to revise the tariff. It
will say that the party 1b not commit
ted to any schedule but changes should
be made only when changed conditions
of business or the treasury render it
necessary or advisable. Persons pres
ent at the recent conference say It al
ready has been agreed that the tariff
will be revised in the Fifty-ninth Con
gress if the Republicans win In No
vember. There is at present a determination to
to make the platform ub brief as pos
sible, consequently tho Indorsement of
the administration and the acts of tho
party will be put In compact form.
This indorsement will be a general ap
proval of the course of the general nc
tl6n of the President and the Republi
cans. Concerning' Trusts.
The plank concerning trusts will, In
effect, declare that the laws for tho
regulation of monopolies and tho re
straint of conspiracy against commerce
were enacted by the Republicans and
that the enforcement of Biich laws has
been only by a Republican administra
tion. It will also say that it Is the
policy or intention of the Republican
party to assal! legitimate Industry and
business or to Infringe on the rights of
persons or property. Special attention
will be devoted to the phrasology of
Some difficulty has been experienced
In finding the proper wording for a rec
iprocity suggestion. Nearly all the
Senators who havo attended the recent
.conferences have contributed thelrshare
toward helping the reciprocity treaties
negotiated by the McKlnley adminis
tration closely confined in committee
pigeon holes. Reciprocity has not been
popular In Congress and It was with
great effort that the Cuban legislation
Senator Aldrlch announced when the
Cuban bill was under consideration that
there would be no more tariff legisla
tion by treaty. If anything Is eald
about reciprocity It will be so worded
as to mean that reciprocity shall be
confined to such articles as arc not In
competlonon with products of tho
Mention of th2 financial question will
consist of an allusion to the mainte
nance of the gold standard by the Re
publican party and a promise to con
tlnuo the finances of the country upon
a sound basis. ;
Disfranchisement of the negros In '
southern States will be denounced as
an encroachment on rights guaranteed ,
by tho constitution.
The demand for restoration of the '
merchant marine of the country will bo '
renewed, but It la not the Intention to ,
Indorse any specific plan. .
There are several other suggestions
us to planks In the platform, but tho de- J
sire to have the platform as brief as !
possible may eliminate ihem from con
sideration as unnecessary at this time.

GANNON WILL NOT
Even Should Vice-Presidency Bo Ten
dered Him Ho Would
WASHINGTON. "May 3 "Even "at
the. risk of being acctiHed of de
clining that which T probably
could not get if I desired It, I
onswer most unequivocally that If the
nomination were tendered to mo I would
rot accept It under any circumstances
Thus Btrongly did Speaker Cannon, In
an authorized interview with a Post re
porter today emphasize his determina
tion with referenco to the Ylcc-Presl-dency.
As he concluded dictating what
ho had to say, tho speaker added; "If
thoro Is any language which can be
moro decisive, write It In."
"What are your reasons for such a
statement?" he was asked.
"I havo been for almost thirty years
a member of the National House of
Representatives. I may say my life
work has boon In connection with legis
lation In the House- I have been nomi
nated by tho Republicans of the Con
gressional district In which I reside and
accepted the nomination. I have evcry
roason to hope I shall bo re-elected.
"If tho Republicans have a majority
in tho next House of Representatives,
of which, In my opinion," he continued,
"there Is no reasonable doubt, I will be
a candidate to succeed myself as Speak
er. If, perchance, however, the Repub
licans should not have a majority in the
next House. I will take my place on the
floor and give the best service In my
power to tho minority. In my judg
ment I can do better service in my ca
pacity as a member of the House than I
can do elsewhere."
Just at this point there was an Inter
esting Incident, Illustrative of the fre
quency with which Vlce-Prcsldontlal
talk is kept ringing in the Speaker's
ears. The doors of his room Hew open
and Senator Burrows entered, escorting
a couple of his constituents, who want
ed, as Senator Burrows smilingly said
in introducing them "to meet tho pres
ent Speaker and the next Vice-President."
Mr. Cannon bowed' courteously, ex
pressed his pleasure at seeing tho two
Michigan people and, turning to Mr.
Burrows, observed: "You will see mc
as an archangel before I am vice
president." "I am glad you retain your senses'
said the Senator, in seriousness.
"I have no ambitionn touching the
public service," declared Speaker Can
non, resuming the Interview as soon as
the door closed behind his visitors,
"outside of and disconnected with the
Houpe of Representatives.
"Ono word more. There are many
men in the Republican party In the
Middle West and elsewhere who are
better equipped for the office of Vice
President than I am and who would
add more strength to the ticket Vian I
would, bo that the decision ao above

QUAINT FASHIONS OF DRESS IN
THE WAR PERIOD.
DRESS has changed very much
in the past forty years, in fact
it hardly seems credible that
American women wore such
immense hoop-skirts a third of a cen
tury ago. Dress has changed materially,
but the standard remedy tor women has
not. It is the same now as it was in our
t In the old days it wus sometimes con
sidered fashionable to be delicate, pale
and with an inclination to faint at the
least provocation. It is different now.
America is raising a strong race a race
of strong and vigorous mothers. When
a woman becomes nervous, suffers from
backache, sleeplessness, a general tired
out and fagged feeling, with dragging
down pains, she turns to the right rem
edy. She is positive she can get relief
and assistance from Dr. Pierce.
Backed up by over a third of a century
of remarkable and uniform cures, a
record such as no other remedy for the
diseases and weaknesses peculiar to
women ever attained, the proprietors of
Dr. Pierce'? Favorite Prescription now
feel fully warranted in offering to pay
$300 in legal money of the United States,
for any case of Leucorrhea, Female
Weakness, Prolapsus, or Falling of
Womb, which they cannot cure. All
they ask is a fair and reasonable trial
of their means of cure.
There is every reason why women
should not trust their delicate constitu
tions in the hauds of unskilled persons.
It requires a thorough medical education
to appreciate and understand the wom
anly organism. When a woman has ills
and pains that she cauuot bear when
life seems dark for any woman, she
should confide her troubles to n plrysi
cian of standing in the community, or
one who has a national reputation. Cer
tainly it would not be the part of wisdom
to confide in an ignorant person without
medical education simply because she
is a zuoman. There is every reason
why she should write to some great
specialist, one who has made the dis
eases of women a specialty for a third of
a century, like Dr. R. V. Pierce, founder
of the Invalids' Hotel and SekJ.
