sian reply to the British protest was
handed to Ambassador Hardinge dur

that the Malacca shall not be brought
before a prize court and undertakes

As a matter of formality the Malae

London, July 23.In accordance
with instructions from Russian For

and the fact that no other cargo of a
contraband character is on board that
vessel she will at once be released.
In response to this notification Lord
Lansdowne assured Count Bcncken
dorff that all the boxes marked with
the broad arrow weie the property of
the Britisu government and the secre
tary added that he had been informed
by the Peninsular and Oriental com
pany, the owners of the Malacca, that
there was no contraband on board, a
statement which the British govern
ment accepted because of the standing
of the company. Russia is now await
ing a verification of the company's
statement on the ground that fraud
might have occurred and shipments of
contraband goods substituted for goods
declared on the manifest. How and
where this point will be determined
has not oeen announced, but Count
Benckendorif has given the heartiest
assurances to Lord Lansdowne of the

Cured of Chronic Diarrhoea After
Ten Years of Suffering.
"I wish to say a few words in
praise of Chamberlian's Colic,
Cholera and Diarrhoea Remedy,"
says Mrs. Mattie Burge, of Mar
tinsville, Va. "I suffered from
chronic diarrhoea for ten years
and during that time tried vari
ous medicines without obtaining
any permanent relief. Last sum
mer one of my children was taken
with cholera morbus, and I pro
cured a bottle of this remedy.
Only two doses were required to
give her relief. I then decided
to try the medicine myself, and
did not use all of one bottle be
fore I was well and I have never
since been troubled with that
complaint. One cannot say toositions
much in favor of that wonderful
medicine." This remedy is for
sale at Barker's Drue- store.

REFUSED TO SHOW MANIFEST
Reason Russian Commander Seized
St. Petersburg, July 23.The repor
of the captain of the St. Petersburg,
which has at last reached the admiral
ty, gives as his reason for summarily
making a prize of the steamer Malac
ca the fact that the British mastei
of the Malacca declined to produce the

RUSSIANS MAKE A GUESS.
Believe Japanese Are Preparing for a
St. Petersburg, July 23.The army
organ evidently believes that the Jap
anese are preparing for a general ad
vance from the east against the Rus
sian left. The paper estimates the
Japanese purpose as follows:
"The probable object of the Japan
ese advance is to move into the Liao
river valley, which is north of our
position at Zanze pass, in order to oc
cup a more favorable position in
the forward movement of the main
army, which is posted along the Mo
tien, Lakho and Tapan passes, with
a front ten miles to the south of the
Saimatsza-Liaoyang road. The advan
tage of the delay consists in the possi
bility afforded in endangering our
communications north of Liaoyang
and the flanking of Lieutenant General
Count Keller's army in the north."
Regarding the new advantage gained
by the Japanese still further north of
the Saimatsza-Liaoya% wa the ar
my organ considers that the Japanese
operations there and the superiority
of their forces at Motien pass, as
shown in the engagement of July 17,
prove that there have been great
changes in the numerical composition
of the Japanese forces.
GENERAL BATTLE MAY RESULT.
Japanese Advance on Mukden Precip
itates Heavy Fighting.
St. Petersburg, July 23.The Official
Messenger prints the following special
dispatch from Liaoyang, under date
of July 20:
"Our left flank yesterday withstood
a powerful onslaught of the enemy.
Reinforcements were sent out.
"The Caucassian mounted brigade
left Liaoyang this morning."
The above evidently refers to the
Japanese advance reported by the As
sociated Press from Tatchekiao on the
northern Saimatsza-Liaoyang road.
If the advance on Mukden is con
tinued heavy fighting is imminent and
a general battle may be precipitated.

DR. F. E BRINKMAN,
OFFICE HOURS: 10 a. m. to Noon, and 1 to 5:30 p.
I realize that it is sometimes very embarassing for a lady to tell
a physician about her troubles. For that reason I keep in attendance
a lady ao my office from 1 to 5:30 m. She assists (if desired) all
ladies in getting ready for examinations is present (if desired) while
I am giving adjustments. The cause of all female diseases is in the
spinal column (small of the back) and I find it is unnecessary to adjust
other than the cause for the removal of the cause always allows the
diseased organs to resume their natural positions and functions. Hence
I never require local examination and never give local treatment, and
even so, there is no line of diseases with which I have more complete
success than those which afflict womankind.
We are now settled in our ne location in the
BOYElt BUILIMNG, THIRD STREET
and invite the public to call and examine our
