MAY ABANDON POUTILOFF
St. Petersburg Admits Critical Situa-
ation of Kuropatkin
By Associated Press.
ST. PETERSBURG, March 6, 3:25 a.
m.— Tbe.- fate of; Gen. Kuropatkln and
his army-- hangs In the balance . today,
depending on the result of the fighting
almost in the outskirts of Mukden.
According* ;to •-'. latest reports this
morning the fighting went well for the
Russians, who beat back the. wave
that threatened to roll over Mukden
as It did over the fortifications of Port
Arthur, but nothing . Is known as to
what .Is going on beyond the line of
breakers, whether part of Gen. Nogi's
force is In full career for. Tie Pass or
whether the Japanese have staked all
in a cast against Mukden.
Tlie imminence of the peril on the
■west ..-ring has., -withdrawn, attention
from, the operations on the center and
the left,. where the. lighting has been
extremely heavy, and on the left, espe
cially where the Japanese .' gains are
sufficiently great enough to cause ap
Carnage Is Awful
* Military critics here point out that
the Japanese have put themselves in
a critical position by the. extreme ex
tension, of v. their lines, laying them
selves-open as they did at Liao Yang,
to the possibility of a most effective
counterstroke and probable defeat if
Gen Kuropatkln. should be Hole to
launch a column against a weak link
in the chain! .:.•'! :'■:.
In. other respects the situation also
resembles that at Llao Yang, the Jap
anese making a costly demonstration
to hold the Russians In their fortifica
tions on the center and throwing away
the lives of thousands In order, to give
the flanking force opportunity to ad
minister a telling blow.
A feature of all accounts of the fight-
Ing, reaching. St. Petersburg Is the
emphasis laid on the awful carnage.
There In reference after reference to
dead piled high on the ground over
which an attack was delivered, strew
ing breastworks almost hiding abatis
from sight and even being used by the
Japanese to construct hasty entrench
Russian Losses Enormous
The Russian, losses on both flanks
are conceded to be enormous, but it is
claimed that the defenders of the center
surrendered comparatively little to the
Japanese bombardment and beating
off the Japanese attack.
The attacks delivered by General
Nogi's soldiers were marvelous in view
of the forced marches which they made
for five or six days, recalling the
records' of 'stonewall Jackson's "foot
cavalry." They entered the battle wltn
the greatest dash and fought day after
day with" vigor," but those of whom
were taken prisoners dropped to the
ground utterly exhausted and hardly
able to speak.

I CLEVELAND, March 5. — Nathan
Loeser, trustee of the Chadwick assets,

called.. by . appointment upon Andrew
Carnegie at the home of Sylvester T.
Everett in this city today and brought
with them the famous 15,000,000 note

ment. The officials obtained speci
mens of Mr. Carnegie's handwriting
for the purpose of comparing it with
the' writing on the paper which Mrs.
Chadwick used as security for many
of her transactions. Mr. Carnegie was
amused when he saw the documents
bearing his name. The dissimilarity
between the signature which Mr.
Carnegie wrote for Mr. Keeler and the
signature which was reputed to be ht3
on the bank paper was marked.
A second purpose of the. visit to Mr.
Carnegie was to learn if Mr. Carnegie
could be excused from coming' for the
second trial which Mrs. Chadwick and
her husband will have to"' undergo upon
state Indictments. Mr. Carnegie said
that he was willing to come to Cleve
land in the Interest of Justice as often
as necessary; . that he regarded it as
his duty as a citizen to do so, -and that
every citizen should aid in the punish
ment of crime wherever found.
Mr. Carnegie said . he would be in
court at 9:30 tomorrow morning to be
sworn as a witness in the government
Prof. | Gould of Cleveland, a hand
writing expert, was present, during the
conference between Mr. Carnegie and
the trustee and Prosecutor Keeler and
made some Interesting comments upon
the two styles of writing as shown by
the alleged forgeries and the genuine
signature of Mr. Carnegie.

i ST. PETERSBURG, March 8, 1:13
a. m.-*-The history of Friday's Imperial
rescript,' as It' has been authoritatively
disclosed to the Associated Press, sheila
a curlqus illumining light, upon tho
struggles for ascendancy between the
forces of reaction and liberalism which
are raging about the emperor, ngaln
compelling one to draw h.' parallel. with
the French revolution aiid Impressing
the truth of Prince Bismarck's famous
remark that everything King Louts
XVI did to 'preserve his throne came
a day too late. ,■./•' '.';■'
Kubßln nt Lilly thn decision to permit
representatives of the people to par
ticipate in a consultative capacity In
consideration of. projected reforms and
preparation of laws had been taken
by the emperor three months. ngo on
the advice of Prince Svlatopolk-Mlrsky,
and had been actually Incorporated In
clause 111 of thfe December manifesto.
Might Have Saved Sergius
Prince Sviatopolk-Mlrsky's heart was
set upon this scheme, making It a con
dition of his continuance in office, but
at the last minute, yielding to the pres
sure of the reactionaries, led by Grant]
Duke Sergius and M. Pobedonesteff,
procurator general of the holy synod.
It was stricken out, and Prince Sviato
polk-Mlrsky, under the sunßhlne of
whose inspiration the hopes of the
whole nation burst Into bloom, stepped
down. Had Emperor Nicholas ' then
clung to his original resolution, many
painful events since the first of the
year, Including the assassination of his
uncle, might have been avoided.
The project on . much broader lines
was again revived by M. Termoloff
three weeks ago at the meeting which
Inaugurated weekly cabinet councils
under the emperor's direct presidency.
Ministers Have Compromised
The emperor | insisted on preserving
the principle of autocracy and some
divergent views also developed among
the ministers. Between that meeting
and February 24 the ministers com
promised their differences. When it
waß presented the proposition con
tained the rescript.
Notwithstanding the paeans of praise
with which some of the Russian papers
greeted the document, hailing it with
such expressions as "The. dawning,'. of
a ' new . era . for, the . Slav, race," "The
Rubicon. of distrust has been crossed,"
"The moment for which we have been
thirsting ' ; wlth trembling, longing J and
tortured souls has arrived," and "The
voice of the ' people at last will be
heard in the councils of the empire,"
there is the greatest diversity of views
as to what ie actually intended, but by
evident design all translate the impe
rial rescript as a promise of real legis
lative ■ chamber, upon which they in
tend to make the fight.
Extremists, of course, who demanded
an out-and-out constitution, deride it
as a delusion and a snare, but thought
ful liberals who are convinced that the
autocracy intends to yield as little as
possible, believe they, have at least
secured a fulcrum for their lever and
that the Emperor like Aladdin has
rubbed' the lamp and called the genii
Into' being, but that he will not be able
to control the new . creation when It

M. Maxlnovltch, the new governor
general of the government of Warsaw,
who is expected to arrive here shortly,
was born in 1849. He received hlsearly

appointed governor of the Ural. Later
he became ataman of the Don Cos
