London, May 2. Baron Hayashi, the
Japanese Minister here, who has been

of tho first serious land fighting, said
to the Associated Press:
They fight well, these Russians,

underestimated our strength or dis
posed his forces In belief that we
would not venture a frontal attack.
"I take It from the dispatches re

secured control of both banks of the
Yalu. In consequence, our base will
probably be moved to Antung.

but I think you will find Port Arthur
either taken by our land forces or
starved out by September.
"I scarcely think that Russia will
send her Baltic fleet to face our au

RARE WINE FROM PORTUGAL

Portugal has an exhibit in the Palace

that was ever sent to St. Louis. This
wine, it Is said authoritatively, is so
old that the age of it has been forgot

It Is the most costly wine ever import

It Is contained In quart bottles, and

at J30 per quart bottle.
Knowing that the thief will adver

old wine and substantiate in full all
that the Portuguese have claimed for
it, the Commissioners are fearful of
more pilfering, and as a safeguard they
have applied to the World's Fair man
agement for a special guard to stand
duty at night over the Portuguese ex
hibit. It is also asked that the guard be a
man of most temperate habits; one
who is capable of coping with tempta

to the sacrifice of satisfying hilarity.

Here Are Opposed to Tying Hand3
of Delegation on a Single Issue.
Democrats of Bisbee should bear in
mind that there Is to be a mass meet

Tammany Hall this evening. The ob
ject of the meeting is the nomination
of forty delegates to go to Tombstone

Notwithstanding the facttnat tne
Republican press, coachedby certain
interested parties, bas been busy in an
attempt to make itppear that there
are several factions among Lie Demo
crats of Bl'bf, in the opinion of the
KeiibwujjsuHMlng this v.Jiilng will
be an , enthusiastic assemblage, and
every action taken will start a cold
cMil down the back cf the Republican
hosts, who have set up tho factional
howl In an endeavor to hide them
selves away from the wrath of the par
ty who has the confidence and respect
of the voters of the county. That
there will be a division of opinion at
the meeting this evening may be ex
pected. Democrats as a rule have
their own ideas and are not subject
to "boss rule" on any occasion. These
Democrats will be on hand and will be
privileged to speak In favor or against
any motion that will present Itself. As
to the personnel of the delegation, that
is immaterial. The question the mass
meeting will bo called on to decide
this evening will be whether or no tho
delegation from iBsbee shall go to the
county convention Instructed or unln
structed. The Review hopes that the Demo
crats of Bisbee will favor an unln
3tructed delegation, and that tho dele
gates from this county to the Tucson
convention will likewise go uninstruct
ed. It is a well established political fact
that an uninstructed delegation at a
convention has the opportunity to be
come a power in that convention, while
on the contrary a delegation acting
under orders for any particular candi
date or proposition often finds that
their Influence has been curtailed, and
that instructions are a hindrance rath
er than a benefit.

JOLT TO THE BOWLING TOUR
NAMENT WHICH DOUG

(Special to Review.)
Douglas, May 2. The bowling tal
ent cf this city and particularly Man
ager Orr, of tho local alley, are indig
nant at the course El Paso has pur
sued with reference to tho proposed
Southwestern Bowling Tournament to
to be held here.
Some weeks ago Mr. Orr conceived
the idea ot holding the tournament
here, the principal cities of Arizona
and New Mexico and El Paso to par
ticipate . Circulars were sent out
and the plan of the tournament was
thoroughly outlined. Favorable re
sponses were received from nearly ev
ery town communicated with.
Then El Paso came to the front
with a counter proposition to the ef
fect that every team bowl at home, .
and the score be telegraphed to, that
city, which was to be the headquar
ters of the tourney. El Paso, It is to
be noted, would derive no advantage
from this amended plan, since none
of the participants would visit that
city, but they would be kept from com
ing to Douglas. And for this -reason
a good many Douglasites have been
galled about the shoulder blades.
This move ha3 been met here by a
later invitation which excludes El Paso
from the toruney altogether, and most
of the places originally communicated
with have signified their intention of
attending. Reduced rates on the
railroads have been arranged, and
there Is now no doubt that one of the
most Interesting sporting tournaments
ever held In Douglas will soon take
