Almaz, and the traus:ports Okean and Katmt

stroyers. While It Is officially stated that
the fleet is bound on a trial cruise, it is
believed by many people that the warships

case of a serious breakdown, but that they
will put into Libau. where they will be
joined by auxiliary cruisetr, colliers and tor
pedo boat destroyers built at Libau and
Reval, and there await their ultimate start

CRITICISM OF EALPOUR.

LONDON, August 26.-Premier Balfour's
statement to the deputation from the Lon
don chamber of commerce regarding the
Russian volunteer fleet cruisers Smolensk
and Petersburg is regarded by a majority
of the London morning newspapers with
entire satisfaction. but meets with adverse
criticism at the hands of others. The
Morning Post. for example. asks whether
"there is not something lacking to clinch
these stout words,' and comments on the
premier's extreme eagerness to find ex

employment of British cruisers a delicate
and undesirable duty, not unlikely to prove

RUSSIAN REPORTS EXAGGERATED
Japanese Losses Not So Heavy as An
Speeial Dhtpatch to The Evening Star.
NEW YORK, August 26.-A cable dis
patch from Lona'n says:
According to the most reliable information
received here the Russian reports of Jap
anese losses at Po:t Arthur and elsewhere
have been grossly exaggerated. The Times
zays: The Russian losses have not been
honestly admitted and they must be qal
mulated on the basis of Russian dead buried
by Japanese. In fifteen engagements large
and small, all of them Russian defeats, the
calculation works out a Russian loss of
32,500K killed and wounded, besides 113 guns
and eighteen Maxims captured by the en
emy. Excluding the Port Arthur garrison,
we have to deduct 2Q.00 men as casualties
of the army under Kuropatkin's direct and
personal command. Allowing that the whole
of the 17th Army Corps has now reached
him, he should now have 132,M0 men and
aver 400 guns at his disposal. It is not our
business to disclose the Japanese numbers
and we need only note the figures given by
the operations bureau of the Russian war
r>ffice. namely, 226.410 inen and 00) guns for
the field armies and 100,0saJ men besieging
WANTS VESSELS INSPECTED.
Japan Desires to Inspect Russian Ships
Dismantled at Shanghai.
Mr. 'T'akahira. the Japanese minister here.
called upon A<ting Secretary Adee of the
State Department today to talk over the
settlement of the niuestions connected with
the presence of the two Russian warships
in the hurbor of Shanghai. The minister
expressed gratification at the outcome of
th~e negotiations in the agreement to dis
arm the vessels and lay them up during the
war, but he regarded it as essential that
the completeness of the disarmament of
the ships he' established to the satisfaction
of the Japanese gover nment through a per
sonal inspec'tioni of the era ft by a Japanese
naval officer designated for that p)urpose.
As this course was pursued in the case of
the Czarevitch at Tsingtau, the German
port on the Shantung p)eninsula, without
much objectio:1 from Russian quarters, it
is expected that consent will also bi given
to the examination of the Askold and Gro
zovoi at Sh'unghai.
It is intimated here that there are two
reasons why the Japanese government is
not dial:osed to press its original objection
against the course pursued by the Russian
vessels ini taking r'efuge in this fashion in
('hinese treaty potts and insisting upon its
right to cut them out. The first reason is
that Japan. more than any other country
at this moment, desires to maintain in full
force the agreement to preserve Chinese
neutrality and thereby avoid entangling
powers at present neutral in the great
struggle now going on. And the second
leason is that in the expectation of an
ultimate victory over Rtussia the Japanese
contempate the inclusion in the peace
treaty of a provision for the surrender to
Japan of all the Russian naval vessels dis
mantled and laid up in Chinese ports as
wel' as any that may be found in Port
Arthur and Vladivostok, so it is not reluc
tant to have their prospective property pre
served intact, until the end of the war, by
The Navy Department today received a
cat-legram from Rear Admiral Yates Stiri
lng, ecmmander-ie-chief of the Asiatic fleet,
dated Sl'anghai, today, saying that situa
tion there is quiet and that he regards the
incident of the disarmament of the Rus
sian ships as closedl.
The Shanghai newspapers unanimously
regard the outcome of the recent situation
as due in no small measure to the diplo
macy and the act of John Goodnow, the
Americant consul general there.

"The alleged inactivity of the democrats
in this campaign, so far as New York state
is concerned, has no more foundation than
the fact that the democrats are sawing
wood and not indulging in a campaign of
talk," said Representative William Henry
Ryan of Buffalo, when seen by a Star re
porter at the headquarters of the demo
cratic congressional committee today.
"Mr. Sheehan put the situation in a nut
shell when he said in an interview that
he would talk about the election after the
votes are counted. Work and not talk is
what counts and that is what is being de
pended upon in this election.
Efforts in New York State.
"In New York state complete organiza
tion is being effected. Every county of the
state is being organized and I believe the
result of this sy stematic work will be

talk with any definiteness about the way the
state is going, but from present indications
I am satisfied that Parker will carry it. He
has all the strength of Cleveland and
wherever there have been democrats in the
past there are democrats now.
"I know of no division anywhere in the
party or of any lack of interest in the
campaign that is liable to affect the vot
ing strength of the democratic party. It is
simply a question as to whether we can
keep the republican vote in the upper part
of the state down so that our New York
city majority will give the state to Parker
"There will he no majority of 100,000 for
anybody, but I feel sure the democrats
are in a position now to carry the state."
Mr. Ryan had a long talk with Chairman
cowherd at the democratic headquarters.
He expressed the opinion that the demo
crats in New York state would not only
bold( all the seats they row have in the
House of Representatives, but that they
would probably gain several districts now
represented by republicans.
The democratic committee has hired a

the basement of the Riggs House, but the
place there was not large enough, nor was
it otherwise suitable.
A large amount of literature is going out
of the new folding room. It is being sent
to all the states in which a fight is being
made by the democrats.
Trying to Win Indiana.
In Indiana alone it is said that within a
reasonably short time there will be sent
1,000,000 speeches for Tom Taggart to cir
culate In his effort to carry that state for
the democrats. Chairman Taggart is not
resting in his efforts to carry Indiana for
Parker. He long ago declared that there
was a chance to secure that state, in spite
of the fact that the republican vice presi
dential candidate was taken from it.
A part of his plan is to fill the state with
democratic speeches, and he is preparing to
do it. He is being given every available
assistance in his work by the national
committee of which he is chairman. While
he might exercise his own authority in re
spect to Indiana. regardless of the view
taken of his course by others, the fact is
that he has the earnest support of other
members of the national committee. Most
of them rather doubt his ability to make
good his claim that Indiana is fighting
ground and that lie can carry it for Par
ker, but as Mr. Taggart has expressed con
fidence in his ability to do so they are
willing to see how far he can carry out his

The probability that the congressional
committee will be moved to New York city
is growing less. But it has not yet been
decided whether it will be moved there or
be kept here. In any event the work of
distributing campaign documents will be
done in this city, where there are said to
be better facilities for printing and distrib
uting documents than in any place the
committee could locate.
The national committee h-s given some
large orders for printing to the congres

these orders wvill be filled. The committee
has several spee'hes ready for tihe press

has assured the Panaman government th1t
the United States will do nothing, in its
interpretation of the treaty regarding the

CLERKS ARR EDUCED
THEY HAVE TAX0 LL LBM3
POE SEVERAL YEAE$.
Acting Secretary Moorh Censiders One
Who Takes Sizty- Days'. IA&v*
"When clerks in the government service
persist in availing thenselves year after
year of the full thirty-day annual and thir
ty-day sick leave it is to my -mind proof
of the physical inability of such clerks to
hold responsible positions."
This statement was made today by Prof.
Willis L. i :oore, chief of the weather bu
reau, and acting Secretary of the Depart
ment of Agriculture, aid to demonstrate
the courage of his conviction he immedi
ately ordered the reduction of three clerks
holding important positions in the depart
ment. These clerks, whose names Profes
sor Moore preferred not to make public,
according to the records, have taken the
full sixty-day leave every year for several
years. Two of them were employed in the
weather bureau, and for this reason Pro
fessor Moore felt no hesitancy in taking
the radical action attributed to him. The
order created a momentary flurry among
the clerks in the Department of Agricul
ture, and it is probable that they will be
more sparing in taking advantage of the
sick leave in the future.
His Attention Called to Matter.
"When I assumed temporary charge of
this department several days ago, upon the
departure of Secretary Wilson," said Pro
fessor Moore, in explanation of his order,
'it was called to my attention that some
of our best clerks--or, rather, clerks hold
ing the best positions-were in the habit of
availing themselves of their full thirty
days' sick leave, in addition to their annual
leave. An abundance of physicians' cer
tificates were tilled to show that the clerks
were actually "sick" for one month every
year, and the records show that the de
partment has had only ten. months' work
annually from each of them.
'I looked up the law, and discovered that
both the thirty-day annual and theathirty
day sick leaves are discretionary with the
head of the department. Ile may grant
both, or deny both, as he sees fit. It did
not take me long to determine that the
privilege was being abused, and I decided
upon the course of action -I have taken. It
is clear to me that if a clerk is actually ill
thirty days every year, and needs an addi
tional thirty days for rebt and recupera
tion, besides Sundays and other holidays,
he cannot be classed as a healthy man. In
fact, such a clerk is physically incapable
of holding responsible positions, and I fa
vor the promotion of strong, able-bodied
clerks to take their places. In following
out this idea I have reduced three of the
clerks holding important positTins in this
department, and have. iled their places
with clerks who are able to work eleven
months out of.twelve,
Will Show No P eferences.
"I intend to show no pcefereps , and as

Samuel V. Hayden of the tirm of llayden &
Yarrell, has returned to Washington, after
accompanying Mrs. Maybrick on her voyage
across the ocean, and he talked interestingly
today with a Star reporter.
There was a great pile of papers on the
desk of Mr. Hayden in his private office in
the Pacific building when the reporter en
tered. Many of the papers, he expiained,
were requests for Mrs. May brick's services
to lecture and exhibit herself, or to write
articles for syndicates or periodicals. One
of these propositions was from a prominent
lecture bureau, which offered Mrs. May
brick, through Mr. Hayden, $5hJ a week for

An Article on Prison Reform.
While in prison, Mr. Hayden said, Mrs.
Maybrkk prepared an article on prison re
form and the segregation of habitual crim
inals and consi ptives fron flirst offenders,
her argunent beipg along the lines which
were followed in- establishing the Wash

court. She also- devoted an' interesting
chapter of her paper on imprisoament for
debt in England, where there are said to
be 1l,'w10 persons incarcerated in prisons
because of their alleged inability to pay
their indebtediness. The paper is a rather
lengthy one and touches on a variety of
matters that-came under her observation
while behind English prison bars.
Mr. Hayden said that no photographs
had been taken of Mrs. Maybrick since
she was released,. except the snap shots

"Mrs. Maybrick and her mother executed
deeds to one Groom about 1867 at the in

attorney, in order that the title might be

a portion of the lands for about $1).OOO.
This sale was not reported to Mrs. May

knowledge of my firm tHayden & Yarrell

deeds were presented to her for her signa
