Rumors of the Fall of the Stronghold
Officially Denied at Tokio.
Japanese Began a Big Battle With Cav

Tokio, July 30.Rumors of the fall
of Port Arthur are officially pro
nounced to be untrue. A desperate
attack upon the forts however, is now
denly more pessimistic. With, the
Japanese able-^.6 get^ around ijjgene.ral
Kuropatkin's right from "Newchwang

column threatening the Russian com

northward may be absolutely neces

sued to the foreign war correspond
ents to go to Harbin, as well as the
report from Vladivostok that Viceroy
Alexieff is going there, are highly sig
nificant, as indicating that General
Kuropatkin may have already decided
that his present position is untenable.
The temper of the soldiers at thetimistic
front over these continued retrograde
movements is shown by the state
ments of two Russian correspondents
with General Herschelmann, who re
port in identical language that "the
soldiers are tired of retreating," and
the statement of another Russian cor
respondent who says "our men retired
from Tatchekiao with heavy hearts."
Still another correspondent says:
"We are all wonderstruck at thewhen
strategy and genius of General Ku
roki. Everything he plans is executed
with clockwork regularity, although
he has no railroad and must march
his men over mountain roads."
Perhaps the rain, which again seems
to have begun, this time in earnest,
may save General Kuropatkin's posi-
RUSSIA FILES A PROTEST
COMPLAINS TO BRITISH FOREIGN
OFFICE OF CONTRABAND
London, July 30.Russia has filed a
formal protest at the foreign office
against British shipments of contra
band to Japan.
The Associate Press learns that the
Russian government since the begin
ning of the war has carefully watched
the manufacture of goods intended for
the use of the Japanese government
and as soon as it was established that
such goods were about to be shipped to
a hostile destination the facts were
officially communicated to the British
government, with the request that
measures be taken to put a stop to it.
It is further asserted that in many
cases the government has not taken
action and it is understood that when
the war ends Russia proposes to pre
sent a bill tor damages to the British
government which will offset the in
demnities claimed for the seizure of
It is also learned by the Associated
Press that Russia does not intend to
hasten the settlement" of the question
of the right of vessels of the volunteer
fleet to pass the Dardanelles since, if
negotiations on the subject were con
ducted at this time, as desired by
Great Britain, Russia might be forced
by the existing situation to grant con
cessions she would afterwards regret.

STRIKERS ARE GEFEANi
ARREST OF PRESIDENT OF TEAM-
STERS' UNION ,CsBANGES AT-
TITUDE, OF ^ADERS.
BAD BLOW TO PE&CE PROSPECTS
OPENLY THREATENED THAT THE
STRIKE WILL E SPREAD
AS FAR AS POSSIBLE.
Chicago, July 30!-^Peaee prospects
at the stoqfc yards revived a black eye
during the day in t&V arrest of Presi
dent -Geoge r&ldea-ie$. the Teamsters'
union, who Was ta&el&from his office,
locked jlnhjte c&Vi^frefused bail for
'ig^crolrlMfe^p^^on^ %om his office
window to a union driver.
Not until nearly all the labor lead
ers directing the big strike had sur
rounded the stock yards police station,
demanding Golden's release on bail
and threatening habeas corpus pro
ceedings, preparations for which were
already under way, was Golden ac
corded the privilege usually granted
all prisoners. In the brief time cov
ered by these developments the paciiJc
attitude of the strike leaders was sud
denly changed into sullen, bitter defi
Threats filled the air instead of op
utterances of the past and it,
was openly hinted that the strike will
be spread as far as possible.
Packers Deprecate Incident.
The change in the status of public
feeling at the yards was so apparent
that the cool headed leaders who have
been directing the strike for the pack
ers themselves deprecated the incident
in the strongest terms.
Adding to the strained situation
Golden was finally released by
Inspector Hunt that official took occa
sion to issue a verbal manifesto that
the police will no longer permit strike
leaders to issue or disseminate orders
to the members of unions save in pri
vate halls. This utterance, made in
the open air in the presence of scores,
was seized upon by the labor leaders
as an instance of usurpation of power
which they contended is possessed
only by the courts, .and, in fact, as
equivalent to declaring martial law.
Regarding the manifesto as a
parallel to the attitude taken by the
authorities in Colorado the strikers
were thrown into an intensely ugly
mood. On all sides it was conceded
that the incident will have a decided
influence on the future conduct of the
DEFIED POLICE OFFICERS.
President of Chicago Teamsters' Un
ion Under Arrest.
Chicago, July 30.President George
F. Golden of the Teamsters' union
turned strike picket during the day,
defied Police Inspector Nicholas Hunt
and met a Waterloo. The inspector,
after warning Golden not to interfere
with traffic, placed him under arrest
and he was sent to the stock yards
police station a prisoner. Thus for the
first time a chief of the striking thou
sands was taken into custody.
At the Ume of Golden's arrest the
police also took into custody G. T.to
Buser, who was in the teamsters'
headquarters. He was charged with
interfering with an officer. A patrol
wagon was called from the nearest
police station, .where the two prisoners
were taken. Golden had two bonds
men at the station when he arrived
there, but the captain in charge, act
ing under orders from the inspector,
refused to liberate Golden or Buser
ion bail. Both prisoners were sent to
cells, vehemently protesting against
what they declared was an outrage.
I President Golden, after a stormy
i talk with Police Inspector Hunt in
which International President Shea of
the teamsters' organization took part,
was liberated on bail.
I The action of the police regarding
Golden greatfy incensed the strike
leaders. International President Cor
nelius P. Shea of the Brotherhood of
Teamsters was outspoken in his de
"Colorado methods seem to prevail,"
said he. Other leaders coincided with,
this view and hot talk prevailed about
the strikers' headquarters.
Price of Meat Advancing.
Although the managers of the pack
ing companies claim to have enough
men working so that their production
is almost iLOcmal itL-flfiiejiai sL the
plants the price of meat continues to
rise in the local markets. This is
largely due to the fact *hat the prod
ucts of the big plants have been al
most wholly sent to outside points.
The meat served to Chicago custom
ers nearly all comes from the inde
Figures obtained at the five largest
independent packinghouses in the
yards where there is no strike in
progress show that these plants have
more than doubled their force of men
and their output of meat. The men
are working in three shifts of eight
hours each and the killing and pre
paring of meat is continued day and
J. J. Redden of the Sheet Metal
Workers' union has instructed mem
bers of the union outside of Chicago
to make no cans for the packing com
panies involved in the strike.
Disorder at the branch of Nelson
Morris & Co. in South Chicago caused
the arrest of five men who had at
tacked retail meat dealers going for
supplies. Two wagons were tipped
over by a crowd of strike sympathiz
ers. The police prevented further
trouble by arresting the ringleaders.
Eighty colored men being transport
ed from the stock yards in two cars
on the Lake Shore road were thrown
into a panic by a furious attack by a
mob of 200 throwing stones which de
molished nearly every window in both

MOB LAW IN CONTROL,
Miners' Leader Discusses Conditions
at Cripple Creek.
Denver, July 30.The News prints
the following from an interview with
President Charles H. Moyer of the
Western Federation of Miners, who is
here to confer with officials of the or
"It is time to call out the troops
again to protect our men in the Crip
ple Creek district. There is no legal
authority there now. The sheriff's
office cannot control things. A mob
controls and our men are being sub
jected to whitecappings, whippings
and every sort of brutal treatment. If
the governor had wanted to be fair he
would have ended martial law, with
drawn the troops and left, say, fifty
soldiers there to deal impartially with
all violators of the law. Instead of
that he withdrew all the troops and
left the commission and mob in con
trol, leaving our helpless men to the
mercy of that mob. He simply en
dorses the mob, asks us to call off the
strike and will not allow our men to
go back. To call the strike off would
be- to acknowledge that we were
wrong that the treatment we had re
ceived was right ad that we got what
was due us."

DR. F. E. BRINKMAN,
OFFICE HOURS: 10 a. m. to Noon, and I 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 ac 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.
I never require local examination and never give local treatment,
even so, there is no line of diseases with which I have mor!e
success than those which afflict womankind.
