POB VICTORY AT ANT COST,
Kuropatkin's Move Believed to 'Be
Forced Upon Him by Czar.
LONDON. Oct 10. Tho now phaae of
fho war involved in Gon. Kuropatkin's
stirring address to his army is keenly
diEcusscd by English military critics. In
tho light of tho probablo motives under
lying Kuropatkin's decision to tako tho
offensive It Is not forgotten hoTT recently
tho Russian plan of campaign was reported
to be to lead tho Jonancao northward In
order to attenuate tholr communications
and henco there Is a grcator nuprlse at
what Is considered a romorkablo order.
Various reasons aro advanced by the
critics as having possibly actuated Kuro
patkln: first, that Japaneso inactivity led
him to supoBo that ho was stronger nu
merically; second, that Intrigues cormeotod
with tho appointment of a new com-mnndor-in-chlcf
may havo determined
Kuropatkln to prcclpltato matters, and,
third, and according to tho EngllBh
critics, by far the most accoptablo ex
planation, that ho again has been over
ruled fromrSt. Poteraburg and Is acting on

Spencer "Wilkinson, in tho Morning Post,
takes similar views. Ho says that Kuro
patkin's mention of tho relief of Port
Arthur and tho fact that immediately fol
lowing tho decision to pond out a second
army ho is about to risk everything in an
attack by tho first army suggests govern
ment pressure. If so, Mr, Wilkinson
says his advanoo Is a Blgn of dcsporatlon;
but if ho Is acting on his own Judgment

"Wnllo all tho morning newspapers com
ment In a similar vein tho consensus of
opinion Is that Field Marshal Oyama Hits
nothing to fear from a Russian advance
and that he likely will Welcomo tho pros

sidered after such an order further ro

Desiro to Fight Agtd.ii in the Vicinity
of Liao Yang.
MUKDEN, Oct. 8, via Tlontsln, Oct. 9.
A crossing of the Taltso river cast of
Benslhu. by Russian cavalry, shows that
tho Japanese aro retiring on tholr posi
tion at Liao Yang and in the nest of hills
east of Yental, as If still desiring a de
clsivo action near Llao Yang.
Tho Japaneso, aftor approaching tho
Hun river, appear merely to hold Gen.
Kurokl's late battleground, where cannon
firing upon the RusBlan cavalry occurred
during tho morning and afternoon of
October 7. It was quiet thero yesterday.
Tho Japanese right 1b understood to bo
guarded by a Japaneso force boyond,
where outposts of Cossacks aro stationed,
but no action between tho Cossacks and
Japanese has been reported within a week.
In order to retake lost ground, tho Rus
sians havo now a task similar to that of
the Japanese, that is, to make a road
over a hitherto unmapped region, but tho
season, being dry, is highly favorable to
the task of road-making
The Inactivity of tho Japaneso la not
unusual. It recalls their retirement from
the vicinity of Kal Chou before tho battle
oX Vafangow. It also recalls Gen. Ku
rokl's strategy throughout the fighting In
Motion pass. Tho Japaneso north front
has been located on a lino extending from
Benulhu to tho Yental coal mines, and
bonding north In tho center toward Hua
Russians Eriven Back.

Is tho text of an order of tho day issued
by Gon, Kuropatkln and dated October 2:
"Moro than soven months ago tho onomy

Not Time to Go Forward.
"It Is for this reason that, in oplto of
tho repeated ropulso of Japaneso attacks

Retreat Necessary to Victory.
"I ordered tho rotroat with a Borrowful
heart, but with unshaken confldcnco that
it was necessary In order to gain com
ploto and decisive victory over tho onomy
when tho time came.
"Tho Emperor has assigned for tho con

has been entrusted this work, which for

of warfare. ,
"In tho course of seven months hun

thousands of horses and carts and mil

To Compel the Japs.
"But now the moment to go to moot tho
enemy, for which the wholo army has been

Churches Do Not Solve Religious
Problems, but Universities Do.
CHICAGO, Oct 9. "Not a single re
ligious problom of any Importance has
been solved by tho theological somlnarles
of tho United Statos in fifty years. Tho

"While Democratic Candidate Dodges '11
and Ducks at Every Import- '
i ant Issue, i hl
BIRMINGHAM, Ala., Oct. 9. Thomas i'l
E. Watson, People's party nomineo for
President, has addressed his letter of
acceptanco to Samuel W. Williams, chair-
maa of the Springfield convention. !
Sovoral Quotations from tho letter fol-
low: j IH
Tho statement has been mado that in '
a speech in Atlanta I expressed a prefer
onco for Mr. Roosevelt over Mr. Parker.
Neither In that speech, nor In any other 1 ;
havo I dono eo. Being a candidate for 1 ' '
the Presidency myself, I would have, made ;
my80lf a sideshow to whichever of tho !
other two candidates I expressed n prefer- j
enco for wheroas I am in full, militant. nl
aggressive control of an independent show
of my own. , IH
Roosevelt's "Stand Up" Policy.
Much abuse has been heaped upon mo I
becauo more tlmo was devoted by me IH
to denunciation of Porker than of Roose-
velt The reason Is obvious enough, JH
Roosevelt is a straight out Republican, '
who declares boldly for Republican prln-
clples, deilantly defending existing condl-
tlons. To attack him Is a short, easy IH
Job. Ho is so conspicuous and station- IH
ary a target that no one who wishes to i
take a shot at him could possibly miss
the mark. A
Ho is not in amUush: ho Is behind ;
no "blind;" he stnnds out in the open, t
and ho Bays to his enemies, "Here I am J IH
a Republican who stands pat on all ex
lstlng conditions: If you want to fight. 1
como on!" Now, I can understand a Re- i
publican llko that: and while I would ,
lovo to mako my -battle-axe ring on his ,
helmet until one of us went down In po-
litlcal defeat nnd death, yet I could re- i
spect him all the while as a fooman I
worthy of any man's steel. Mr. Roose- '
velt will get Republican votes, and no
Not a Confidence Man. '
Ho Is not seeking tho eupport of Bryan 'jH
Democrats upon false pretenses. Ho Is ' jH
not playing a confidence gamo on the IH
negro question. lie Is not attempting to
win Jeffersonians by a sham adherence
to Jeffcrsonian principles. In short thero in '1
Is no danger that Jeffcrsonian Democrats, 'jVr
will vote for Roosevelt upon the assump- . JH
tion -that ho is a Jeffcrsonian Democrat. t JH
Thero is no danger that Roosevelt wili
get a single vole to which I. na a Jcf- H
forsonlan In principle, am entitled. jH
With Mr. Parkor it Is different. He
is not a Jeffcrsonian Democrat, yot ho i
seeks to secure the support of Jeff or-
sonians. If ho would speak out plainly IH
and tell tho eople that he Is In prln-
clplo tho samo thing, practically, that IH
Roosevelt Is, tho Bryan Dcmoorats would '
fall away from him by the million. I , IH
would thon bo cnablo to organlzo such
a party of revolt against tho Ropubllcan i
rule as would sweep tho country. j
Bryan's Pointed Characterizations. ijH
Mr. Bryan, who Is always careful In tho ill
Htatomont of matured opinions, has as- IH
surcd tho country that "tho influences
back of Parker's candidacy are so intl- H
matcly associated with trusts and great
corporations that tho Dcmocratlo party ,
could not appeal to tho masses." "With
sucn a candidate." said Mr. Bryan, "they
would begin with a foot race and end rH
with a rout" Likewise, ho stated a IH
BClf-evIdcnt fact when ho declared that JH
"tho plutocratic element for the llrst tlmo IH
being is in control of tho Democratic IH
It was equally clear to Mr. Bryan, aa rH
it was to many others, that "tho nomi-
nation of Parker was secured by crooked iH
and Indefensible methods." and that tho 'H
nomination of such a man, who had, as fH
Mr. Bryan declared, won the honor with
"leaded dice," virtually nullified tho anti-
trust plank In tho Democratic platform. .H
Nomination a Deceit. fH
Theso were fearfully important facts, '
and thoy produced tho Impression on tho
minds of millions that there was some- JH
thing stealthy, deceitful, cowardly and
utterly dishonest In tho Parker campaign (
for tbo nomination. Mr. Bryan stated
facts, profoundly Important facts, and (
thev continued to be facta up to tho
time that Parker actually got tho nomi-
ration which ho had sought on a "cow- 'H
ardly and utraddllng platform. th jH
honor for which ho had played with
"loaded dlco." ,T nf ,
tho nomination cured all tho hypocrisy iH
and fraud bv which it had been obtained (H

Thoso things which Mr. Bryan said tlH

Parker meekly stays out of tho light In jH
hla formal lottor of acceptanco ho says H
that ho takca up tho glovo thrown at IH
his foot, declaring that ho will revoko that m
pension order No. 7S. But In , the sarna
breath ho hastens to admit that Rooso- H
