DENVER, Oct. 17. J. Pierpont Mor
gan Intends to have a chain of banks
across the continent, according to state
ments made , today by a prominent
banker, who Is unwilling to have his
name used. The local banker said to
day: "Morgan is constructing a chain of
banking houses across the country. Re
cently he invaded the St. Louis terri
tory. He Is now perfecting plans to get
into Kansas City, and preliminary nego

already been started. When assured of
a location here he will go on to Salt
Lake City and then to San Francisco.
"Plans for the Denver bank are Im
mature ht present. Morgan Is In com

to be associated with the enterprise.
The rumor of a banking trust is
ridiculous. Such a tiling would be Im
possible, oven -with one bank ln each

MONK SUFFERS AGONY.
Endures Abscess in Jaw Until Almost
LOUISVILLE. Ky., Oct. 17. Father
Cyprian, for many years at the head of
the Gethsemane college and one of the
most widely known monks in America,
Is in St. Anthony's hospital suffering
from an abscess of the upper Jawbone,
which it is feared may cause hla death.
Three operations have been performed
by Dr. August Schachner and a large
gold plate has been placed in his cheek,
but the calm acceptance of the suffer
ing on the part of the patient makes It
almost' impossible for the physicians
really to know to what extent the ope
rations have aided him.
Father Cyprian Is 60 years of age. The
abscess is one of long standing, and the
physicians say that It would be impos
sible for them to estimate the great
amount of suffering that the patient has
gone through. The pain Increased con
tinually, and at last his Iron will was
forced to surrender. He went to Father
Obrccht, the abbot, and told him of the
pain which he was unable to stand long
er ln silence. Immediately the abbot
sent Father Cyprian to the hospital

Final Result of Battle
Great Admiration Expressed for
Kuropatkln, However, in Way
He Protects His Retreat.
LONDON. Oct. IS. The greatest admira
tion Is expressed by the London newspa
pers today for tho tenacity displayed by
Gen. Kuropatkln ln protecting his retreat,
but nowhere Is tho Idea entertained that
the Russians first success on the Sliakho
can change the broad character of their
defeat, or have any effect beyond slightly
retarding the Japaneso advance to Muk-
den and probably to Harbin, since tho
Japanese appear to bo fully prepared for
a winter campaign.
Question of Intervention.
The Question of Intervention Is hardly
discussed at nil, because It is believed
that the Russian 'Government Is ln no
mood to accept It.
The Standard's correspondent with Gen.
Kurokl, telegraphing under dato of Octo
ber 15, says. "Kuroki, as usual, has borne
tho brunt of tho struggle and sustained
a majority of the casualties. We are now
occupying tho lino of Shakhc, with out
posts near Mukden."
Hope for Kuropatkln.
Reports from Russian sources glvo a
more hopeful view of the situation of Gen.
Kuropatkln's army. That commander has
reocUDlcd and holds tho town of Shakhe,
tho possession of which for several duys
was llrst with one and then with another
of tho contendlns armies.
No Word From Loft Wing.
Reports from tho Russian left wing, tho
safety of which there had been much
anxiety nbout, ore no Inter than tho night
of October 13. They had been lighting for
two days for tho po..sesslon of Tumln
pass, an Important strategic point, but
up to the point of sending tho last dispatch
tho Japanese wero still ln possession of
Must Hold Bridge.
In order that this column may be able
to rejoin tho main Russian army, It Is
necessary that Gen. Kuropatkln should
hold tho bridges over tho Hun river and
tho position ho now occupies on tho
Battle Not Ended.
There Is no Indication that tho end of
the great battle Is at hand. Estimates of
tho losses show a wldo divergence, but
are, as a rule, lower than those given in
Russians Capture Guns.
A dispatch from Mukden timed at 1:S0
o'clock yesterday afternoon, said tho Rus
sian forces at 11 o'clock this afternoon
penetrated tho Japanese center and. it is

and 150 prlsonors east of tho railway. At
another point during tho day the Siberian

trench there were counted COO corpses of
tho Japanese. In spite of their losses the
Japaneso were undaunted. They nave
brought up slego guns and havo left no
stone unturned to maintain the mastery
of the situation.
Cost Russians Dear.
Every step the Russians have pushed
forward today has been ln tho face of a
roslstanco that has cost th Russians
dear. The Japanese seem to be willing to
light until they are annihilated. Tomor
row will bo the tenth day of tho battle.
JAP LOSSES ENORMOUS.
Trenches at Soukhotung Stormed, by
MUKDEN. Oct. 17 Yesterday tho
Russians were not only success
ful on their right, but carried out
some brilliant movements on the left,
whore they assumed an energetic of

Soukhetung, southeast of Hun pass.
Soukhetung Is on the high road which
runs to Bentsluputze. Joining the Man

which is four miles north of Shakhe.
The Pctrovskly, Neuchlot and "Wll

nese trenches at Soukhetung and car
ried them after desperate resistance,
capturing ten guns. The Japanese loss
es were enormous.
BROWN MEN ADVANCE.
Gen. Oku Has Attacked the Russian
TOKIO, Oct. 17. It is reported
from reliable private sources that the
Japanese are continuing their advance
and that they have occupied additional
positions south of the Shakhe river. The
left army occupied Wufuklatun at noon
yesterday, dislodging four or live bat
talions of Russian infantry and several
batteries of artillery and crushlngly re
pulsing a subsequent counter-attack.
Artillery from the center and infantry .
from the loft army are harassing the
Russian retreat. Gen. Oku has at

on Boise Man.
Special to Tho Tribune.
WEISER, Ida,. Oct. 17. Tho striking
and stinging element in Senator Helt
fcld's speech Saturday night here was his
attack on Borah.
"In his Coeur d'Alenc speech Mr. Borah
last Tuesday evening followed tho patent
plan adopted by Mr. Brady (chairman)
and so obediently followed by Gooding,
Heyhurn and French, of saying that tho
polygamy Issue was only a dream in tho
mind of Senator Dubois," said Senator
Heitfeld. Then the big candidate for
Governor asked the audience to view
Mr. Borah as a dclogate last Juno
to his national convention ln Chi
cago, urging beforo members of the
platform committee a plank In the na
tional Republican platform against po
lygamy, and view him now trying to
spurn and evade the great Issue. This
led tho Senator to the following very ad
roit arraignment of Mr. Borah, and hc
"Whon God made Mr. Borah he endowed
him very handsomely with some talents
that nro of great pride and highly orna
mental; but In his entire composition ho
signally failed to sprlnklo ln tho least
degree any morul courage,"
Ho said further that Borah knew and
had so stated and would not now deny
that a delegation of three Mormons wait
ed on him beforo tho election of a Sen
ator two years ago this winter and asked
him to prejudge the Reed Smoot case In
tho United States Senate and pledge them
that were ho (Borah) elected to the Sen
ate ho would work for his (Smoot's) re
turn .as a Senator from Utah, and that,
upon his refusal so to prejudge the Reed
Smoot caso. Borah was defeated for
Senator and Hoyburn was elocted as a
Ho wild further that Heyburn went
straight forth and began responding to
interviews from Seattle to Now York, In
sisting that thcro was absolutely no
"legal grounds" upon which Smoot could
bo unseated and that tho approaching In
vestigation would shrivel for want of llfo
and die down unobserved by the public
Heitfeld made many votes for himself
and his ticket here Saturday night. His
speech tonded to prove, first, Borah's ab
solute belief in the existence of polygamy
in Idaho last Juno and tho necessity of
stringent laws to punish the perpetrators
of tho crime, and, second, the fact that
Senator Heyburn made a deal with tho
church for his election as a Senator, which
Borah refused to make, and that this deal
was essential to tho election of either
Borah or Heyburn, and that the former
lost and was now sorry ho did not mnko
tho deal and wanted to mako another by
which he can defeat Dubois two years
hence, and that the latter (Heyburn) Is
glad ho made It and Is trying to main
tain his standing with tho church for
futuro deals which thoy may bo able to
make In Idaho of "mutual benefit" to
