Stray Torpedo Boat at Chefoo.
Mukden, Nov. 15 The Mancburian
army paper Vestnik, published under
the sanction of the Russian officials,
and the only newspaper printed at
the theatre of war, gives the details of
the scrupulous care that is shown by
the Japanese for relics and other effects
of tho Russian dead found on battle
field, and tells how the Japanese have
forwarded such effects to St. Peters
burg. Tho paper highly commends
his action. The paper annoucnes that
General Kuropatkin recommends that
all of his commanders shall observe a
similar practice regarding the Japanese
dead. This humane practice, which
was initiated by the Japanese, and
which is calculated to secure consider
ation for their dead, has met with ap
plause from the Russian army and
will undoubtedly be imitated whenever
the Russian is in possession of the
field over which tho battle has been
fought. 'Owing to the fact that the
Japanese have been left in possession
of nearly all battlefields, these humane
and benevolent offices have entirely
devolved upon them.
The Russian Left Flank Believed
to be the Opening Move
for a General Battle.

He Addresses Two Letters to the
Congress. President Diaz of our

Supporter of its Principles.
El Paso, Nov. 15 During this af ter-
oon s session of the twelfth annual
irrigation congress a letter was read
from President Roosevelt and Presi
dent Diaz and Vice President Corral,
of Mexico, alio letters from all mem
bers of Roosevelt's cabinet.
There were two letters from Roose
velt and one said in part "The best
use of the public land is that made by
the man who has come to stay. You
should make yourselves guardians of
the future and prevent the waste of
the great natural resources of the
country." He said that irrigation and
all other interests of the country, in
terlaid as irrigation made the west
prosper, and if "the west prospered,
such cause other sections to pros
per as a result. The other letter said :
"I wish it were possible for me to ac
cept your kind iuvitation to attend
the national irrigation congress to be
held in El Paso. I need not state to
you the deep interest I have in tho
cause of national irrigation. Irriga
tion is in fact one means for national
expansion, which is most important.
Wishing you a successful meeting, I
am yours truly, Theodore Roosevelt. M

Resolutions of Respect.
The following resolutions wero
adopted by the Bar association of
northern Arizona, at a meeting held at
Prescott, Arizona, November 15, 1904,
in reference to the death uf Judge W.
Whereas, Tho Bar of Arizona, in the
death of Hon. William II. Barnes of
Tucson, has lost one of its oldest, ab
lest, and most respected members,
whoso acute and penterating mind, and
ready and effective use of an extensive
knowledge, gleaned from a study of
the law and of almost every branch of
literature and of human learning, es-
pecially fitted him for the notable
work he did as a amember of tlm su
preme bench of the territory, to which
he was called in the prime of bis man
hood; and whose intensity and force
of utterance, added to his other qual
ities, gave him a professional distinc
tion altogether unique, and
Whereas, the older members of this
association can vividly recall his strik
ing face, bis grace and charm of con
versation, and the varions elements of
personality which, though felt, can
not be desoribed, but which made him
at'all times and places and in ereiy
assemblage a commanding figure
Now, thereofre, be it resolved:
1. That the members of the Bar As
sociation of northern Arizona do hare

second days' session of the American
Federation of Labor was abruptly con
cluded shortly after the afternoon
session was called to order today. A
change in the program was necessitat
ed by a flood of resolutions which
poured in when Gompers j called for
the documents. In the space of half
an hour, sixty one were handed to Se
cretary Morrison. They are almost cf
every character that would affect trada
organizations, ranging from such top
ics as petty discussion on union juris
diction to such questions as woman
suffrage and the exclusion of Japaness
from the shores of America. An ad
journment was taken that the proper

Two Huntington Mills Are
Here for the It. Union
Other Machinery En Route Opinion
of a Gentleman of Authority on
the Property Practical Mining
and What it Demonstrates Again.
A noteworthy movement in mining
in this section is that signalized in
the arrival of two up to date mills of
the Huntington type for the Mt. Un
ion Consolidated Mining company,
operating near Prescott. These mills
reached this city Saturday and will
be transported to the properties at
Each mill has a capacity of forty
five tons, and in addition to this '
shipment received two more car loads
uf maohinery are also en route and
will reach their destination in a few
days hence. It is expected that by
the middle of December the reduction
of ores from this company's interests
will be inaugurated, and to that end
Superintendent Greenwood will rush
the plant to completion as fast as
Attending the introduction of this
machinery the mine work that war
rants this heavy outlay in mechanical
utilities, has terminated in a hand
some showing oh the' properties, and
to support the heavy consumntion of
ore the capacity of these plants show,
there are several thousands of tons of
ore ready for reduction on the ground,
a guarantee that tho enterprise can be
stated to be a success before it is
practically demonstrated in this con
nection. In addition to this feature
of the past operations of this enter
prise, the earnest and practical man
ner in which this property has been
handled, the rating of the ground of
this company is ranked as among the
best in this county. In less than nine
months of operations Mr. Greenwood
has sunk the main shatf to a depth of
500 feet, along with other development,
all of which reflects on not only his
capability as a miner, but alos does it
demonstrates that where good judg
ment is linked with economical meth
ods mining would prosper more mater
ially if conducted on this principle
Recently the mines of this company
were inspected by H. A. Coben, of the
DeLamar company, and although this
gentleman was in no way identified
with them, bo made the statement vol
untarily to the public that in his
duties of visiting properties in this
territory, he was free to form impres
sions, and would accordingly make the
statement that considering develop
ment to date, he rronounoed the in
terests of the ML Union people as
among the most desirable to be seen
in this territory. Such a tribute to
this property and from such an author
ity, is in itself gratifying not only to
the property, but likewise to the
management of Mr. Greenwood.
It is truly remarkable that a mine
should bo developed and placed in a
channel of handling its own product
in the short space of nine months,
with a guarantee of success behind it,
but such is nevertheless, the case, and
it will bo proven to be also one of the
best mining propositions in this coun
ty or in the territory.
ISKULKS IN TO
Another Russian Torpedo Boat
Gets Caught in a Trap and
Wiil go Out of Business.
By Associated Press.
Chefoo, Nov. 1C, 7:15 a. m. A Rus
sian torpedo boat destroyer has just
j entered the harbor. She has not been
j communicated with yet gowing to the
roughness of the sea. It is reported a
Japanese torpedo boat destroyor was
seen ouc 'do watching the movements
of the Russiun vessel.
The Russian torptdo boat destroyer
Ratstoropony put into the harbor this
morning. Firing was heard half an
hour before she entered the harbor. A
snowstorm and high wind was prevail
ing at the time and it is believed the
Russian vessel under cover of the
storm attempted to escape from Port
Arthur. A correspondent of the asso
ciated press succeeded in reaching the
Destroyer after her arrival here but
was not allowed to board her. Tho
captain of the Chinese cruiser was the
first person to board Ratstoropony.
He held a brief conference with the
commander after which the Ratstoro
pony came further into the stream and
anchored athe same spot the Ryeshi-
telnl did last August before she was
cut out by the Japanese. There is
every evidence that the Ratstoropony
will disarm here, only as a last resort.
It is thought she hopes to elude the
Japanese destroyer, reported outside
the harbor at night. The Ratstoropony
brought a number of copies of the
Novakrai, a Port Arthur newspaper.
In one of its issues it is stated that
while a Japanese destroyer was laying
mines, November 11th, she was sur
prised by the battleship Retvizan and
