Shells From Japs

Artillory Duel in the Recent
LIAO TANG, June 17. Tho wounded
In the first two days' fighting at
Vafangow are arriving. A Lieu
tennnt of cossacks gays the
American military attaches were with
his command most of June 15 during the
hottest part of the fight. He com
mented upon their coolness and their
professional interest In the operations
exclusion to tho idea of personal danger.
"The Russian artillery." the Lieu
tenant sayn. "was splendidly served, but
was outmatched in number by tho Japa
nese. One Russian battery pitted
against Japanese batteries was literally
smothered by Japanese shells. I saw
one buttery land three shells In the
midst of an ammunition train which
was galloping up to servo the Japanese
guns. Two caissons exploded, killing all
tho horses and drivers.
"The Japanese guns fired at least 1500
rounds. The Russians fired several
times on Japanese Infantry in close for
mation, causing tremendous havoc."
An officer of the Fourth battery says
his battery was in a duel at two and a
half miles with a Japanese battery and
eJlenced it. His battery then ran out of
ammunition and the men carried the
breech mechanism of the guns with
them to the rear and brought up a fresh
supply of ammunition and resumed
serving the gun.
Several of the Russian dead found In
the bushes were horribly mutilated. The
foreign attaches drew up a formal
memorandum of this.

Two Masked Hen Loot
Northern Pacific Train Held
lip and Robbed in the
Engineer Forced by the Bandits
to Light the Sticks of
BEARMOUTH. Mont, June 17. At
31 o'clock last night two masked
men held up North Coast
limited Northern Pacific passen
ger train, castbound, a mile and a half
east jiL this station. After bringing the
train to a stop they dynamited the ex
press car, blew open the safe and se
cured all of ito contents. The amount
secured is not known, but is believed to
or. large. iicr mowing out tnc rear
lights of the train the two men disap
peared and have not been seen since.
Whcro Hold-Up Occurred.
The hold-up was similar to the one
which occurred two years ago In nearly
the same spot, and In which Engineer
O'Neill lodt his life. The hold-ups
boarded the tender of the engine at the
water tank at Bearmouth and after
having remained quiet until the train
had gone a mile and a half they crawled
up over tho coal and covered Engineer
Wade and Fireman Reed with their
guns and told them to throw up their
hands. Engineer Wado was then com
manded to bring his train to a stand
still and he immediately complied.
Engineer Touched Off Dynamite.
The engineer and fireman were or
dered from their engine and with the
hold-ups went back to the express car.
Before making an effort to gain an entrance-
they forced the engineer to light
a cigar. Tho express messenger was
commanded to open the door, but re
fused. The engineer was next com
manded to light a stick of dynamite, of
WhlCh OXnlOSlVA thp linl n Inrrr.
tlty, and place the lighted stick against
the car door. Tho force of the explo
sion completely wrecked the door and
the engineer and firemen were com
pelled to precede tho hold-ups Into the
car. Once admission was gained the
hold-ups at once directed their attention
to the strong box.
Safe Is Blown Open. '
Five sticks of dynamite were placed
on top of the safe and Ignited. The
force of the charge was Insignificant
and another and larger cap was used
The second charge exploded with terri
fic force, blowing out the side of tho car
and throwing the safe a distance of for
ty feet. After rifling the safe of its val
uables the robbers commanded the train
crew to remain quiet and no harm
would be done them.
The men then passed to the rear of
the train and after putting out both of
the roar lights of the train disappeared
in the darkness.
The i-aIlrond company has offered a
reward of 52000. dead or alive,, for each
of tho robbers, and the Statehas added
5500 to this
One hundred and eighty sticks of
dynamite tied In bundles of ten to a
bunch and all fused were found at the
scene of the hold-up.
Made Rich Haul.
Later advices say that the robbers
secured $65,000 from the Northern Pa
cific Express company's safe, which
they dynamited. The safe was billed
through from the coast to Chicago.
It is the bellof that the robbery is
the work of the famous "Dutch Henry"
gang,, which is the remnant of tho
band of desperadoes once headed by
Kid Curry. This crowd was active in
Teton county last winter, but has not
been heard from for some weeks and
was thought to have crossed the Ca
nadian line. "Dutch. Henry" is an old
pal of Curry's.

Special to Tho Tribune. vT
CHICAGO, June 17. The Wisconsin
Stalwart?, headed by Senators
Spooner and Cjuarles, won out be
fore tho Republican National
committee today, when the committee,
by unanimous vote, turned down tho
crowd headed by Gov. La Follette and
decided to. scat the Stalwart delegation
In the National convention. Tho fight
was a bitter one and it Avas tnougnt at

upon to decide which of tho contesting

In the convention, x
Dispute Not Ended.
While tho contest is practicall- settled
so far as the National . convention is
concerned, the dispute among the two
factions Is not ended. Wisconsin courts
are to be asked to determine which of
tho two State conventions recently held
In Wisconsin was entitled to have the
names of its nominees for State officers
placed on the official ballot under the
regular party name.
La Follctto's side announced their de
termination to carry the fight to the end
and it is probable, In spite of the de
cision of tho committeemen that the dlsr
pute will again bo fought out before tho
committee pn Credentials in the Na
FHj: of Decision.
This uctjjHjof the commlttoo has
caused consluerable talk as to what the
result will likely be In Wisconsin in, No
vember. The La Follette faction Is very
strong in tho State and the machine tun
by tho Governor has been i manipu
lated as to crush nearly ovdR' one who
has come in contact with it. This ma
chine slipped a cog at the recent Repub
lican State convention, and today it
was so badly used up as to render it al
most uselesa It is believed that
most of those who havo been riding In
it will now jump on to the Stalwart
band wagon and help to keep up the old
time majority in the State.
Figures on the State.
In this connection It might be said
that Wisconsin has not given Its elec
toral vote for any other candidate
than the Republican In many years,
with the exception of 1892. when Cleve
land can-led it by 6551 plurality, and
but twice In thirty-two years have the
Democracy carried It in State elections;
onco in 1390 and the other in 1S95. Mc
Klnley's plurality In 1900 was 10G.5S1,
and La Follette's In 1902. 17,099. This
year each faction has a State ticket of
its own in the field as well as a State
committee. The Stalwart delegation at
large Is United States Senators,
Spooner and Quarles and Congressmen
Babcock and Bacnsch.

Comfort in Defeat
Contend That Stakelberg Won More !
Than He Lost in Battle
ST. PETERSBURG, June 17. Mili
tary circles do not view the battle
of Vafangow as a defeat and they
contend that Gen. Stakelberg, un
like Lieut. Zassalltch, won more than
he lost. Whether Gen. Stakelberg's
expedition to the south had an imme
diate bearing on tho situation at Port
Arthur it is thought that his presence
has caused a diversion which "will ma
terially affect the operations in the
southern part of the Lluo Tung penin
sula. It Is thought unlikely thut the Japa
nese had north of Kin Chou such a
large force as thut which engaged Sta
kelborg's division, and the numbers
seem to indicate that they drew off
some of the troops operating against
Jt is pointed out that tho force en
gaged at Vafangow must recuperate
for several days, and It is expected that
tho fight will materially retard the
siege operations against Port Arthur.
The sole regret Is that Gen. Stakelberg
did not draw the Japanese further to
the north before allowing them to en
gage him. but experts suspect that cer
tain conditions compelled Stakelberg to
fight at Vufangow.
Gen. Stakelberg is praised for the
skillful handling of his men in the field.
He and his old Avar comrade. Gon. Ku
ropntkln, fought side by side in Tur
kestan, and he Insisted on again taking
the field, although almost an invalid.
