DECISIVE SERIES OF DATTLES.
Japanese Hope to Force Russians Into
Tokio, July 28.It is believed in
military circles here that the begin
ning of the end of the first great phase
of the land campaign is at hand. The
operations of Generals Oku and Nodzu
agaist Kuropatkin's south front are
thought to have co-ordinated with the
forward movement of Kuroki against
the railway, making it practically im
possible for the Russians to escape a
decisive series of battles. The Jap
anese hope to be able to defeat their
enemy so thoroughly that an oppor
tunity may arrive to arrange peace.
Nevertheless preparations are complete
for a campaign in the north should it
be necessary for the achievement ni
the government's fundamental aim-..

Japanese Report of the Capture ol
Washin rton, July 28.The Japanese
legation has received the following dis
patch from the foreign office at Tokio:
"General Oku reports that on July
24 our army commenced an attack on
the enemy posted on Tapingling and
other eminences near Tatchekiao,
which were fortified with strong de
fensive works. The enemy's line ol
operation extended over ten miles
from east to west. The enemy con
sisted of about five divisions, with at
least 100 guns. The right wing of our
army reached the heights three kilo
meters southeast of Tapingling and
there ensued the exchange of severe
artillery fire. Our advanced lines had
to withdraw until darkness before the
enemy's artillery fire, as the local sit
uation did not permit our artillery to
fire with full effect. At 1 p. m. a de
tachment from our right wing dis
lodged the enemy from the position
around Tapingling. Then, by succes
sive attacks till daybreak, we captured
all the positions commanding Tatche
kiao and are now pursuing the enemy
toward that place. Our casualties arc
estimated at 8001"

Illinois Board of Arbitration In
terviews Packers And
Seven Hundred Drivers Join
Strikers' Ranks Owing To
Chicago, July 28.Fire, tumult and
picketing contributed ^to stirring
scenes at the stock yards during the
day, while the packers, firm in their
stand, went ahead Slaughtering stock
and doing as much other work as pos
sible in the circumstances. Convinced
of an improvement in the situation, as
far as available nonunion help and
capacity otherwise of the plants were
concerned, the packers had sent word
to shippers to be somewhat more gen
erous with their consignment, and as
a result the receipts of cattle, hogs
and sheep were considerably larger
than had been the rule during previous
days of the strike. There were more
men working, acording to the employ
ers, and more work for them to do.
For the first time wholesale picket
ing was inaugurated. Hundreds of
men were scattered to various corners
of roadways as pickets.
Amid all the warlike denionstrations
there were reports of plans for an
other peace conference between the
packers and the striking butchers.
Members of the state board of aibi
tration appeared at the office of Pres
ident Donnelly during the day and
held a conference with the labor lead
ers. The strike situation was gone
into thoroughly and the arbitrators
then left the office to seek a confer
ence with the packing interests. Later
President Donnelly and several of his
aides left strike headquarters for a
second conference with the state board
Stock yards teamsters joined the
packing employes during the day.
Seven hundred of the drivers for the
packing companies refused to go to
work, the teamsters' joint council
having endorsed the vote to strike and
ordered the members of every other
local union in Chicago to make no de
liveries to the stock yards. Wagons
from down town merchants and sup
ply houses destined for the yards with
consignments of rations for the bar
racks of the nonunion army there and
supplies and materials for the various
plants were turned back from every
gate. Not Employing Nonunion Teamsters.
It was stated that the packers at
present would make no general at
tempt to employ nonunion teamsters.
Plans have been arranged to deliver
meat by railroad to packinghouse
branches in various parts of the city.
Practically all the striking live stock
handlers returned to their work in the
yards during the day, an agreement
having been made with them that they
need not assist in weighing or deliv
ering stock consigned to the packers
involved in the strike. They are
handling all stock for the independent
packers, shippers, exporters and small
To minimize the danger of rioting
should the packing companies attempt
to deliver meat to local consumers
with nonunion teamsters Chief of Po
lice O'Neill has given instructions that
all hauling shall be done on Halstead
street. The chief declared that all
teamsters will be protected from vio
lence, but to make this possible the
hauling must be confined to one street,
which will be strongly patrolled. The
order calling out the packinghouse
teamsters affects many other drivers
Clarence Hall is the first victim
claimed by death as a result of the
stock yards strike. Hall is dead at
the Continental hospital. Last Tues
day he, with R. F. Keating, his em
ployer, an ice dealer, was driving past
a crowd of rioters. Two shots were
fired, one of which struck Keating,
passed through his leg and struck
Hall. The police never ascertained
who fired the shot.

FIRE IN LARD REFINERY.
Overheated Dynamo Starts Blaze in
Chicago Stock Yards.
Chicago, July 28.Fire broke out
among the -packinghouses in the
stock .yards during the day in the lard
refinery of Swift & Co. and soon
gained such headway that every avail
able fire engine in the stock yards dis
trict was called out. Rumors of incen
diarism were rife. Examination, how
ever, apparently showed the cause of
the blaze to have been an overheated
dynamo. The, building, 150 by 250
feet and three stories high, was filled
with tierces of lard, many of which ex
ploded spreading the burning grease
in every direction.
The firemen were hampered in going
into action by numbers of cattle and
sheep which were being driven along
Exchange avenue, the main thorough
fare of the stock yards. The fire
threatened a number of buildings
nearby, but the firemen managed to
keep the flames from spreading.
POLICE ARE POWERLESS.
Sheriff Asked to Take Charge at South
Omaha, July 28.The board of fire
and police commissioners of South
Omaha, by resolution during the day,
declared their inability to police the
strike district in that city and re
quested Sheriff Powers to take charge
of the strike.
The sheriff went to South Omaha
and later reported to the county com
missioners that there was no apparent
necessity for extra police or for dep
uty sheriffs. He said everything was
quiet and that no lawlessness of any
kind was being indulged in.

STATE WINS FINAL APPEAL.
Minnesota Gets Title to Valuable Min
St. Paul, July 28.The state of Min
nesota has won the final appeal in the
contest for title to the thirty-seven
acre tract of mineral land on the
Mesaba range, which the state auditor
estimates has at least 2,000,000 tons
of iron ore on which the state will re
ceive a royalty of 25 cents a ton. The
state auditor has received a decision
from Secretary Hitchcock of the
United States department of the in
terior holding that the tract in ques
tion is swamp land and therefore the
property of the state under the swamp
land grant of 1860.
The decision of the secretary of the
interior marks the close of one of the
hardest fought legal battles in the his
tory of Minnesota. F. A. Hyde & Co.,
who claim title to the land under for
estry scrip, appealed twice from the
decision of United States Surveyor
General E. S! Warner of St. Paul and
once from the decision of W. A. Rich

convention and very early in the pro

Right of Russia To Sink
British Government Demands
Full Satisfaction For

firmed by Premier Balfour in the
house of commons during the after
Answering questions regarding the
destruction of the Knight Commander
and the seizure of the Malacca and
other vessels the premier, said he
hoped to be in a position to make a
brief statement regarding the Malacca
shortly. As to the sinking of the
Knight Commander he "regretted that
information which has reached me
confirmed this regrettable occurrence."
Mr. Balfour added:
"There is no question of loss of life,
but I am afraid there is a question of
breach of international law."
DEMANDS FULL REPARATION
GREAT BRITAIN RESENTS SINK-
ING OF STEAMER BY VLADI-
London, July 28.The British gov
ernment is sending Instructions to Sir
Charles Hardinge, the British ambas
sador to Russia, to energetically pro
test against the sinking of the British
steamer Knight Commander by the
Russian Vladivostok squadron. Until
the presentation of the note to the
Russian government the greatest se
crecy will be maintained regarding its
contents, but it is known that Premier
Balfour and his colleagues have de
cided to demand that the fullest repar
ation shall be made, by Russia or
measures will be taken' to follow np
the diplomatic demands.
The British note, as Sir Charles Har
dinge will submit it, will not mention
ihe amount of indemnity Russia must
pay the owners of the ship and British
subjects having goods on board the
vessel, but all that will be sought will
be the establishment of the principle
of indemnity and apology. A salute
of the British flag must also be con
ceded and the future protection of neu
tral shipping assured.
The attitude of the British govern
ment is the result of the thorough
consideration given to the reports re
ceived from Sir Claude MacDonald,
the British minister at Tokio, and the
examination of international law au
thorities by legal experts. The dis
patches from Sir Claude MacDonald
confirm the reports that the Knight
Commander had no contraband of war
on board for Japan. The government
and all the British authorities, it is
asserted, unite on- the point that there
was no justification for the sinking of
It is felt in government circles that

practically have been adjusted, but
which have failed to settle the ques

In the light of the declaration of the
Russian government respecting contra

hostilities commenced no representa

Great Britain, to Foreign Secretary
Lansdowne regarding the Knight Com

the subject, nor is it seen by the Rus
sian diplomats how it Is possible for
their government to make prompt an

known when the Vladivostok squadron
will return to port. The commander
of the squadron, it is pointed out, un
questionably seized the papers of the
vessel including her manifest, and
therefore will be able to present rea

OFFICE HOURS: 10 a. m. to Noon, and 1 to 5:30 p. m.
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 at. my office from 1 to 5:30 p. 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,
even so, there is no line of diseases with which I have more complete
success than those which afflict womankind.
