Later Plans Not Announced.
While nothing Is forthcoming at this
time about the later plons of the com
pany, yet It is a faot that the wires
will stretch from here through Nevada
to San Francisco. That will be a day
to remember, the wires, first laid by
the late John W. Mackay, traveling the
scenes of his earlier manhood, the
"places where he first dug- from the earth
that mammoth fortune, finding a tem
porary resting place at the metropolis
by tho Golden Gate, where he perfected
his great Industrial plans. From Salt
Lake to San Francisco Is the region
where Mackay first became a power and
this ls the region where his name Is
most revered. His clever son Is follow
ing out the teachings of the far-sighted
father but the people of this section will
always hold dear the memory of John
W. Mackay and for years to come It
will ever be "The Mackay Line."
MACKAY PLANNED BIG
11 has Just come to light that at least
one Salt Laker lost a great friend in
the death of John W. Mackay. Early
In the life of the Angelus, the elegant
hotel at Los Angeles, Its proprietor, G.
S. Holmes of this city, became ac
quainted with Mr. Mackay and their
friendship resulted In an agreement
whereby the millionaire was to build
at the southeast corner of Fourth and
Market streets In San Francisco, a
twelve-story fire-proof building to cost
from $2,500,000 to $3,000,000. The plans
were prepared and Mr. Maclcny was to
return to meet Mr. Holmes for the pur
pose of letting contracts', when death
came so unexpectedly and naturally Mr.
Holmes did not care to urge the matter
any further with his heirs.
When Mr. Holmes was asked about
this yesterday he said that as It was
past history, there whs nothing to say
about tho business arrangements, but
;is for the late John W. Mackay, who
was a personal friend, he said that all
who knew him realized that there was
no limit to his friendship and generosi
ty to those who enjoyed his confidence,
and when he died, ho (Mr. Holmes),
lost the strongest friend he ever had,
one who would have done more for him
financially, as well as In other ways,
than any other man. "He was one of
the noblest men that God ever placed
upon earth." said Mr Holmes,

STORY FROM RUSSIAF4S,
Declare That tho Japanese Eleet

N- EWCIIWANG, June 30. The Rus
sian torpedo-boat destroyer
Lieut. Burukoff arrived here
from Arthur yesterday and la
berthed alongside the gunboat Slvouch.
The river bank was soon crowded with
excited natives, who were told by the
Russians that the Japanese fleet had
been completely destroyed.
The offlccrs of the Lieut. Burukoff
tell soveral stories. One is that Ad
miral Togo's report of the fighting was
exaggerated ami that the Russians
have made two cruises in the Gulf of.
Pe Chi LI ln live days.
Another story ls that the Port Arthur
fleet has Joined the Vladivostok squad
ron. The correspondent of the Associated
Press sent a messenger who speaks
Russian, to tho side of the destroyer,
buti tho Russian sailors would not talk
except to say that they left Port Ar
thur Tuesday night. Every Inch of the
boat. was crowded with mon. She had
the appuarunce of having been ln a
genorul engagement, her bow having
been shot away. The Lieut. Burukoff is
one of the torpedo-boat destroyers ta
ken from the Chinese at Taku In 1500.
The general belief here 1b that Hhe
came here with dispatches for the ar

quite natural, as two Cossack olllcers
were on board.

ST. PETERSBURG, June SO. As a
result of the receipt of news of a
llro which took place at the tor
pedo works at Cronstadt last
Ight this city was tonight filled with
tho wildest rumors, Including one to
tho effect that the Peterhof palace had
been blown up. The damage at Cron
stadt was confined to the torpedo
mechanical shops, which were almost
wholly destroyed, together with twen
ty Whitehead torpedoes. Five of the
torpedoes had war heads attached and
they' exploded, which added to the fire
and tho excitement. A considerable
quantity of oil stored ln the works was
also burned. An alarm was given in
time to prevent loss of life and more
serious loss of property. The author
ities here do not attach serious lm-'
portance to the accident and say that
tho works will soon be ablo to resum?
Russian Fleet Not Damaged.
A Russian torpedo boat has arrived
at Ncwchwang from Port Arthur. Her
commander denies that any Russian
ships wero sunk or damaged In the
fight off Port Arthur June 23. He de
clares that after clearing away the
Japanese mines the whole Russian fleet
returned safely to the harbor.
Although nothing has been received
by the admiralty from Admiral Skry
dloff confirming the reports that the
Russian Vladivostok squadron had
Bunk Japanese vessels at Gen San,
there ls no disposition to doubt the
correctness of the news.
No Word From Kuropatkin.
No word has come from Gen. Kuro
patkin later than June 27 and not a
single newspaper dispatch has been ro
celvcd from tho. front during tho last
twenty-four hours. This silence ln the
theatre of war la regarded as a sign
of tho coming storm.

cause it ls essential to the safety of
our communications between Vladivo

Togo's Report Exaggerated.
An official dispatch received, from
Lieut. General Stoessel, the commander
of the Russian military forces at Port
Arthur, says that the squadron of Rear
Admiral Withoeft re-entered that port
after repulsing five torpedo boat at
tacks. It contains no further details.
It does not mention any damage to tho
Russian ships. As no injury to the ves
sels of tho Russian squadron was men
tioned the belief of tho authorities ls
greatly strengthened that Admiral To
go's report was very much exaggerated.
