Coroiier Finds Two
Dead Bodies in Road
He Followed Directions Telephoned
by Unidentified Man From tin
EAST ST. LOUIS, 111., Sept. 5. By
following directions telephoned by an
unidentified man from an unknown
place, Coroner McCracken tonight
found the dead bodies of a white man
and negro lying in the middle of a
road about 100 feet apart. Both men
had boon shot exactly in the same
place, through the heart, and the bul
let In each instance penetrated the
body, coming out on the opposite side.
From papers found In the pocket of
the white man, It is presumed that his
name was Robert Reynolds of Cedar
Rapids, la. The negro was named
George Green and was a striker, for
merely employed by the Nelson Morris
The bodies were found near what is
known as the Black bridge, on the out
skirts of the city. "When the Coroner,
who was driving a wagon, reached the
bridge, he was met by a man, who
told him that "what he was looking
for was about 200 feet farther on."
Before the Coroner could question his
informant the latter walked hastily
away and boarded a street-car. A
short time later the police made one
arrest and the man is being held on
suspicion. He refused to give his name
and, on being questioned by the police,
declined to give an account of himself.

DAWSON, Y. T., Sept 5. The Klon
dike City sawmill, owned by the North
American Trading and Transportation
company, was completely destroyed by

Novel Contention Made by Chicagoan
Who Frequently Got a Jag
in Plea to Court.
CHICAGO, Sept. 5. Erring hus
bands who come home at 2 a. m., search
unsteadily for an elusive keyhole, and
then crawl upstairs on their hands and
knees lest their devotion to Bacchus
and Gambrinus cost them a broken
home, plucked up courage today when
they learned of the noval contention
made by Francis T. Brown, Jr., 1127
Hinmnn avenue, Evanston, in the di
vorce suit brought by his wife.
Wifo Know His "Weakness.
Because his wife knew of his weak
ness for intoxicants during his court
ship and never attempted to reform him
after marriage, Mr. Bryan set forth In
the cross bill filed in the Circuit court
In his behalf, that Mrs. Bryan's neglect
to act as his mentor In things spirit
uous should bar her from obtaining a
A cold undemonstrative nature is that
of Mrs. Bryan, according to her hus
band. Willie he frankly admits that the
charges of intoxication are true, Bryan
says that his wife had no feeling of
responsibility for him, and refused to
follow the suggestions of his family In
dealing with his fallings. Bryan says
that although now temperate, he used
Intoxicants to excess for years, and
appeared before his fiancee under their
Influence during their courtship.
Denies Wife's Story.
He denies his wife's assertion that
the habit took hold of him after mar
riage. He asserts that she so far for
got her duty to him as to use Intoxicat
ing liquor herself In his presence, well
knowing the probable effect upon him.
Bryan says that his reform bgan
when he parted from his wife four
years ago in St. Louis, where he was
engaged in the insurance business. Ho
asserts that she has refused to return
to him as promised. Last April Bryan
filed a suit against his wife on the
charge of desertion. Mr. Bryan's cross
bill charged habitual drunkenness.

ST. PETERSBURG, Sept. 6. 3:20 a. m.
It is Impossible at this hour to ob
tain any statement from the authori
ties regarding the reported prepara
tions for the abandonment of Mukden.
This is the first Intimation that such a
courso is contemplated. If it turns out
to bo true, it means the abandonment
of the whole of southern Manchuria
and the winding up of the present
campaign. In fact, should Mukden b2
evacuated, there would be no point for
wintering the army of a quarter of a
million, with Its many wounded, short
Oyama Will Control Railway..
On the other hand, the evacuation of
Mukden would give Field Marshal
Oyama commodious winter quarters
and the practical control of two lines
of railway. The KJnchou-SInmlntln
line, tapping rich Chinese territory,
stops little short of Mukden, with which
it Is connected by a good wagon road.
The report of the prospective evacua
tion of Mukden, if well founded, would
indicate that the crippling effect of the
Liao Yang fighting on Kuropatkln's
army is more serious than has as yet
Position of Russian Army.
A summary of the war situation to
date shows that the whole Russian
army, or at least the main portion of
It, is already above Yen Tal station and
Is pushing on toward Mukden. Field
Marshal Oyama's entire army has
crossed the Taltse l'lver and part of it
Is hanging onto Kuropatkln's Hank. A
strong Hanking column on the east is
pushing rapidly north, In nn effort to
head off the Russians.
Against this column Gen. Kuropat
kin has sent out a strong cavalry di
vision to the northeast, which, It Is
believed, Is already in position to check
the Japanese Hankers, while to the
westward Kuropatkin is moving a di
vision toward SIngmlntin, thirty miles
west of Mukden, to meet any Interfer
ence that may be attempted from the
direction of YInkow or Newchwang.
Oyama's advance Is reported to be en
gaging the Russian rear, but It Is not
expected to develop anything more se
rious than a series of rear-guard ac
tions, tending to harass Kuropatkin's
Heading Off Russians.
The Japanese have thrown a strong
flanking column across the Taltse river
at Benitzu, about thirty miles north
east of Liao Yang. This column Is hur
rying to the northeast and endeavor
ing to get In between the Russian army
nnd Mukden- It is against this move
ment that Kuropatkin has dispatched
Lleut.-Gen. Renncnkampf with a
strong Cossack division, which, it is be
lieved, already Is blocking the eastern
Kuropatkin has three roads over
which he Is marching toward Mukden,
besides the double-tracked railroad.
Tho latter is chiefly occupied in the
transportation of guns nnd of equip
ment, of which there aro great quan
tities. The soldiers are mai'chlng In
light order and most of tho wounded
have been already dispatched north by
Rear Guord Fight,
Gen. Kuropatkin, in a telpgram to
the General Staff, Hied at 1 p. m. Sep
tember 5, north of Yen Tal, says tho
Japaneso on Sunday engaged his rear
guard south of Yen Tal, the flght con
tinuing until Monday. The telegram
details tho precautions taken to check
mate the Japanese Hankers.
Kuropatkin estimates his losses up
to and Including September 4 at 16.000.
This is considered to be a very con
servative figure. Tho loss to tho Jap
anese probably will bo double this num
ber, owing to their position as attack
ers. Kuropatkin Not Wounded.
Kuropatkin says nothing regarding
the loss of guns, but It Is probable that
some of the heavier emplaced guns at
Liao Yang hud to be abandoned. There
is no truth, either, in tho report that
Kuropatkin has been wounded or that
Lieut -Gen. Llnevltch Is moving to his

Tokio Illuminates and Celebrates
Over tho Russian Rout at
TOKIO, Sept. 5. A mass oC official
reports on the battle of Liao Yang
reached the imperial headquarters to
day, but they will not be given out
until It is possible to put them in order
and make from them a connected dnd
detailed story. In the meantime head
quarters Is refraining from giving any
thing to the public.
What Is Generally Known.
It is generally known that Gen. Ku
ropatkin succeeded, by means of a
desperate rear-guard action and strong
and well-handled flank movements, in
withdrawing the great bulk of the
Russian army, and that he cut bridges
to hamper the Japanese pursuit.
Operations Japanese Right Wing.
Critical Interest centers In the opera
tions of tho Japanese right wing, which
occurred late Friday night and early
Saturday morning. Gen. Kuroki then
swung to the westward, his movement
being designed to Hank the remainder
of the Russians left at Liao Yang It
self. Will Capture Many Russians.
It is believed here that Gen. Kuro
patkin Is bound to lose many prison
ers to the Japanese. It is possible,
however, that the tonocrrarjhical diffi
culties and the overwhelming opposi
tion of the Russians may check this
movement on the part of Gen. Kuroki.
Japanese Officers Killed.
Among the Japanese officers reported
killed In the battle of Liao Yang are
Lieut Teraouchl, son of Lieut-Gen.
TeraouchL Minister of War, and
Lleuts. Fukushima and Maratta, both
sons of Japanese Generals. Official
figures of the Japanese losses and a
list of the trophies captured are ex
pected to reach Toklo tomorrow.
Stand at Mukden.
It is believed here that Gen. Kuro
patkln's next stand will be made at
Mukden, although there Is defensible
ground south of there.
Banquet in Honor of Victory.
Field Marshal Yamagatn, Chief of
the General Staff, and Lieut-Gen. Te
raouchl were hosts at a banquet given
tonight In honor of the Liao Yang vic
tory. The guests Included the Imperial
Princes, the members of the Cabinet
and the elder statesmen, the staff of
ficers of the Army and Navy depart

Tokio Is Illuminated tonight and the
principal streets of the city, where a
