Will Raise a Fund to Aid

TORONTO, Aug. 2. C. E. Townsend.
Republican member of Congress, who Is
hero with Michigan bankers, discussed
In an Interview the political situation in
the United States.
"There can be no doubt," he" said,
"that Wall street this year will con
tribute a large campaign fund for the
Democratic party. By this I do not
mean that all or nearly all the big
firms will assist Judgo Parker. Doubt
less you have heard that Wall street is
afraid of Mr. Rooeevelt and Avhat he
may do. This is true to a certain ex
tent, but let me tell you that no legiti
mate investor Is one little bit afraid. It
is the mon who fear the operation of
the law which exists for the verj- rich
as well as for the very poor that fear
Mr. Roosevelt, and these are the men
who may and probably will contribute
to his opponent's fund.
Law Must Be Enforced.
"The President has Insisted that the
law shall be no respecter of persons.
He has not used It to Interfere with
the legitimate Investment of capital or
to curb It In any way. He has nothing
against combinations of capital which
are legitimate and within the law, but
he will not modify his policy against
those combinations which seek to ex
ceed the privileges which are given
them by the law.
"But In playing for the funds and
the votes of the East the Democratic
party stands u chance of losing the
West, Its real stronghold. Already
many of the more radical newspapers
support Judge Parker.
"Nor are their troubles confined to
the West. Even in New York there ls
great dissatisfaction in the party on
account of the close relation to the can
didate of David B. Hill, one of the most
unpopular members of his party in his
own State. Naturally the solid South
will be more solid than ever for the
Democrats on account of President
Roosevelt's insistence on equal rights
for black and white.
"Our opponents expects also to carry
not only New Y'ork, New Jersey, Dela
ware and Maryland, but Wisconsin,
where the factional fight In the Republi
can party between Governor La Lol
lette and the regulars caurscs them to.be
hopeful. I need senrely say. however,
that I look for an easy victory for

These two places are twenty-six
miles apart, but tho two actions were
fought at the same time. The Russians
held strong positions. The thermome
ter registered over 110 degrees Fahren
heit, and the soldiers suffered cruelly
from the heat and exhaustion. At Yu
shulikzu the Russians had two divi
sions of infantry and some artillery,
and they resisted the Japanese assaults
Battles Fought Sunday.
Both attacks were begun at dawn on
Sunday, July 31. At Yushullkzu the
Japanese carried the Russian right and
left wings, but on account of the
strength of the main Russian postion
they were unable to then press the
attack. The two armies rested Sunday
night facing each other.
Dislodge the Russians.
At dawn on Monday the Japanese re
newed the attack and by noon they had
dislodged tho enemy and driven him
four miles to Laohollng.
'At Yangste Pass also the Japanese
were successful. Their artillery op
ened on the enemy and the infantry
moved forward from Makumeze. The
attack on this place was made at 1
o'clock on Sundnj', and by nightfall the j
Japanese were In possession of a ma
jority of the Russian positions, al
though the enemy had resisted with de
termination. Another Battle Monday.
The Japanese forces passed the night
In battle formation and another as

Gen. Kurokl explains the slowness of
these actions by saying that the diffi
cult topography of the battlefields
made it impossible to secure good ar
tillery positions, nnd that the great
heat fatigued his troop3.
The Russian force at Yangste Pass
was estimated at two and one-half di
visions and four batteries of artillery.
The enemy retreated toward Tang
hoyen. Gen. Kurokl reports the cap
ture of some field guns, but the num
ber ls not given. The Japanese casu
alties are being Investigated.
Gloomy at "War Office
The feeling at the War office here was
distinctly gloomy this morning. No of
ficial telegrams had been received by
the general staff from Gen. Kuropatkln,
who was communicating direct with
the Emperor, but from private sources
at the front it already was apparent
that SImoucheng, fifteen miles south
southeast of Hai Cheng, at the Juncture
of the Feng Wang Cheng-Sluyen roads,
had been lost, Gen. Stakelbergs out
posts having fallen back to Hal Cheng.
Progress Enveloping- Move
No word was received enabling the
staff to either confirm or deny the re
ported capture of the late Gen. Count
Keller's position at Ikhavuen, east of
Liao Y'ang, and Yangze pass, thirty
miles east of Llao Y'ang, but heavy
fighting continues on both the southern
and eastern fronts, the object of the
Japanese in the east being to Hank Gen.
Keller's corps from the south and
north, which ls easily possible.
The progress of the enveloping move
ment may have forced tho corps to te
tlre to Llandiunslan, which Is the next
position in the direction of Llao Y'ang.
Official dispatches detailing the engage
ment nre hardly expected until this
Russians Flanked by Japs
The failure of the garrison at SI
moucheng to retreat along the northern
road has been due to the presence of the
Japanese column flanking, the lato Gen.
Keller's corps from the south.
In view of the Inability of the Rus
sians to hold SImoucheng It !s consid
ered unlikely that Gens. Zaraounlaieff
and Stakelberg will attempt to offer
stubborn resistance at Hal Chung. It
Is possible that they are already retir
ing on Anshanshan (also wiitten
Antschantscan), half-way between ITal
Cheng and Liao Yang, ns indicated In
these dispatches last night,
Attempt at Flanking
There ls reason to believe that two of
Oku's divisions are advancing from
Newchwang on Hal Cheng with the
view of flanking and cutting off Gen.

Is not likely to succeed on account of

Crisis for Russin.
All the military crltlcls this morning
take the view that the decisive moment
of the campaign has arrived. The
army organ says that Gen. Kurokl pre
pared for his advance by drawing his
forces, which Avere scattered over a
front of forty miles. The paper says
It is evident that a large Japanese
force is working nlong the Saimatsza

however, as to which force of the enemy
will push home and whether it is
Kurokl's intention to try to flank
Kuropatkln north or south of Llao
Decisive Moment Arrives.
The Russ says: "The decisive mo
ment has arrived, but judging from the
latest reports the Russians have re
tained their positions, and this time it
will not be ordered to retreat."
Gen. Kuropatkln reports that the
Japanese have occupied Ihaueven, east
of Liao Y'ang.
LEGATION HEARS OF VICTORY
Foreign Office at Tokio Advises

WASHINGTON, Aug. 2. The Japa

cablegram from the Foreign office at
Toklo, dated today:
"Gen. Kurokl reports that at day
break of July 31 our army commenced
operations for attacking the enemy oc
cupying Y'ushulinlzu (four miles west
of Hsi Hoyen) and Yung Tzullng (six
miles west of Mo Tien Llug). both places
situated about twenty-five miles from
Llao Y'ang. The enemy at Y'ushullntzu
consisted of two dh isions, with corre
"The allocking operations were car
ried out as prearranged and by sunset
we defeated both wings of the enemy,
but owing to their large force and
strong positions we were unable to dis
lodge them entirely.
"At daybreak of August 1 we resumed
the attack and succeeded In expelling
the enemy nt noon, and pursued them
four miles in the westward direction.
The enemy fled toward Anplng.
' The enemy at Y'angtzellng consisted
of two and a half divisions, with four
batteries of artillers'. The attacking
operations there also progressed suc
cessfully and by sunset we carried the
enemy's principal positions, but a por
tion of them offered the stoutest resist
ance nnd we had to bivouac the night
in battle formation. At daybreak of
August 1 we resumed the attack and nt
S a. in., all heights fell into our hands.
The enemy lied toward Tanghoyen.
"The casualties are under investiga
tion. We captured some field guns, but
details are still unknown. In this en
gagement tho attacking forces were at
a disadvantage, firstly on account of
tho steepness of the ground, and sec
ondly, on account of the lack of suita
ble positions for our artillery, while the
heat was over 100 degrees Fahrenheit."

WHY NAME WAS CHANGED. H
Reason for "Not Naming Postofflce r'l'H
After Governor of Mississippi. iU'H
WASHINGTON, Aug. 2. Postmaster !
General Payne today made the follow- U !
Ing statement explaining tho reasons 1 H
for refusing to name a Mississippi Tfl
postofTlce after the Governor of that "KlH
"On the sixth day of May, 1004, a pe- 3 1 iH
tltion was filed with the department J'JH
asking for the establishment of a post- PiiH
office at a certain point in Calhoun ii tHiH
county, in the State of Mississippi, and 3 'jH
requesting that it be named Vurda- S iiH
man. i UJH
"Immediately the usual investigation ) ljl
made by the department as to the ne- ! i.'.H
cesslty for the establishment of the of- 4 jH
flee was undertaken. Pending the in- . liH
qutrj-. a copy of the dally Clarion- ':1
Ledger, a newspaper published nt ' IjH
Jackson, Miss., dated August 25, 1003, KH
was filed with the department, con- ffftH
talnlng an article to which the depart- tVH
ment's attention was called. This ar- ''KiiH
tide was a copy of an editorial printed ! iiil
in the Commonwealth, under date of i
January" 10. 1003, which paper is pub- (
Ushed and edited by Gov. Vardamnn. "nl
The article in question was so vile and
indecent in its statements concerning -'jH
the mother of the President of the 0
President of the United States as to be llHiiiH
unfit for reproduction. The Postmas- ) -1
tor General did not deem it proper to -tH
give a postofflce the name of any man " 'H
who had used such language regarding j jfi
any woman. The postofflce In question K '-H
has been ordered established and given nHiifl
the name of Tlmbervillc. V pl
"In exercising the discretion given
him the Postmaster General frequent- tjH
ly rejects names suggested for pro- frFiifl
posed postofflces. He has never been
clearer as to his duty than in this case. 3 .H
It Is proper to say that President v''
Roosevelt had no knowledge of the In- HIi'iih
cldent referred to." Irl
luck pursued the Admiral and the Rus-
sian cruisers had no difficulty in eiud- ui'iifl
ins him. fcHI
