Latest War News.
A review of the ten day's fighting be
tween the Japanese and Uunsinns south
of A/ukder. shows immense losses to
both for?es but a decisive victory for
neither. Tho opposing nimios are still
facing each other though a distance of
several miles lies between them. Of
fensive operations on tho part of the
Russians aro reported to have been
made teu milos from Mukden and at
tack? are ot frequent occurrence along
the entire line. No really important
aggressive movement?, however, nre
announced. A very heavy engage

rounds of field gun ammunition and
tents, clothing, sabers and implements.
Additional casualties of the center
army ju BC reported are twelve officers
killed and thirty wounded.
Mudken, October 21.-Toward even
ing yesterday the fog lifted and some
of the Russian guns at various points
opened live against the Japanese de
fenses, but they did not respond either
from scarcity of ammunition or the de
sire not to reveal the location of their
batteries. The weather and the condi
tion of the roads have mac 3 extensive
operations impossible, but the roads
aro now drying hard, which forecasts
events in the near future. The war
correspondents in th? jteld are kept in
the dark, and it id difficult to say when
and how this dreadful slaughter will
Che Foo, October 24!.-The Japanese
on the afternoon of October 10 resumed
their attack on the Russian outer works
at Rihlung mountain. After four
boura' fighting thoy succeeded in cap
turing a number of the Russian trench
es and one small hill. It is the belief
at Dal noy that a general assault on
Poit Arthur will be made soon.
With Gen. Oku'a Left Army in the
Field, Oct. 22, via Fusan, Oct. 24.-The
respective armies retain somewhat pe
culiar positions. Their advance forces
aro lying in the trenches, TOO yalda
apart, and their inaction oannot be ex
plained. For five days tho Japanese
have sot attempted to make the ad
vance for which the Russians Beetn to
be waiting;. The outposts and patrols
of both Bides are in CIOBO touch, and
there is an occasional shot by the ar
tillery batteries. The Japanese are
sending down g^uns and rifles captured
from the Russians and aro receiving
supplies of ammunition and reinforce
ments. The Japanese forward move
ment is expected daily, and it is believ
ed that there ia heavy fighting ahead.
While clearing the field near the vil
lage of Shakhe the Japanese found
many abandoned Russian guns. Their
condition has not been reported. Both
a "uiicu are resting on their arms. Con
tinued skirmishes are occurring be

A Terrible Tragedy at Sumter.
Sumter, Oct. 24.-A suicide as a re
sult of domestic infelicity shocked thia
oity early this morning. Dr. Van Tel
burg Hofman, a well known physician,
blew nearly the whole of his head off
with a shotgun, after a quarrel with
his wife, whom he had murderously
beaten. Dr. Hofman married Miss
Nora Kussell, of Newberry, a niece of
State Treasurer Jennings. Their mar
ried life has not been a happy one, and
it is said that differences aa to religious
views were the prime causes of their
Last night the couple attended
church. This morning at the break
fast table, thev quarreled over religious
matters, and finally Mrs. Hofman left
the table and went to the sitting room,
remarking that she would pack up and
leave so that each might be rid of the
other. Dr. Hofman followed her into
the room, still quarreling with and
beating his wife. At last lie grabbed
her by the hair and throat, choked and
beat her head against the door. By
the exercise of the strength of despera
tion she succeeded in releasing herself
from his grasp, ran out of tho house
and into a neighbor's for protection.
Very soon after a shot was heard in
the house, and when it was entered Dr.
Hofman was tound lying on the floor
with half of his head shot away, blood
and brains spattering the walls.
Dr. Hofman was a native of Holland
and has been living in Sumter abont
five years, being connected with the
Atlantic Coast relief department. He
was highly educated, having graduated
at a university of that country, and at
medical colleges in New York and
Richmond. He came to Sumter from
the latter city, being brought here by
the Coast Line. Some time aince Dr.
Hofman laid violent hands upon his
wife and left the city on business.
During his absence Mrs, Hofman had
to call in another physician for medical
attention on acconnt of the foi aries re
ceived from her husband. When Dr.
Hofman returned the physician remon
strated with Dr. Hofman, and told him
farther that if such a thing occurred
again he would be exposed and that
the people of Sumter would not stand
for such treatment of a lady, lt ia
presumed that after tho occurrnces of
this morning Dr. Hofman felt that ex
posure and disgrace were upon him and
to avoid the indignation of citizens he
took his own life.
