Field Marshal Oyama reports to To
kio that a considerable Russian force
remains south of the Hun river, -while
General Kuropatkin telegraphs to St.
Petersburg that the balance of the
Japanese force is still south of the
Yentai branch milroad. Oyama also
says that the Russians are foititying
the heights on both sides of the Liao
river at Tie pass, Bevond this the
day's dispatches from the seat of war
relate to details of previous fighting
and no light is tin own upon the all
absoibing question of where the next
engagement in toice will occur.
General Kuropatlun's estimate of his
losses the fighting aiound Liaoyang
are far under the hist reports. He re
ports that tiom Aug. 28 to Sept. 5 he
lost 4,000 killed and J2,000 wounded.
Maishal Ouima placed the total of
Japanese casualties at 17,500, making
the total tor both armies in lound
numbers S3,500. Accepting these fig
ures as conect the battle ot Liaoyang
in killed and wounded falls much
lower in the si_ale of the woild's great

He says on Japanese dead have boon
found notes written in Russian le
questing that their bodies be buned,
but when Russian buiial paities at

were fired on. Such instances, Geneial
Balashoff adds, are numerous and the
Russians are now afraid to tiust to the
Red Cross tiag. He states that the
Japanese also protect movements of
their troops by the unlawful use ot the
Red Cross flag.

"It has also been stated in behalf of

VOLUME 2. NUMBER 126. BEMIDJI, MINNESOTA, THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 15, 1904.
Fight Over Regularity of Republi
can Ticket Now Before
Attorneys For La Follette Object
to This Move By Anti
Madison, Wis., Sept. 15.When the
supreme court convened during the
day to take up the contest over the
regulaiity of the Republican ticket all
the judges were at their^seats and the
couitroom was crowded.
The first proceeding before the court
was the filing of an amendment to the
complaint. The anti-third termers at
tach great importance to the action of
the old state ccntial committee in cer
tifying the nominees and the amend
ment attacks the legularity ot this
committee and its right to fill va
JH. W. Chynoweth, for the La Fol
lette ticket, objected to this amended
complaint, stating that it was an en
tirely new matter and should be ad
mitted in the form of a supplemental
Alter the answer to the amendment
was filed Mr. Olin asked that the
statements in the answer be verifie 1
by exact dates and facts conceimn
the resignations. This Mr. Chynoweth
agieed would be done and would be
submitted to the court later in the
National Committee Supreme.
The brief submitted by George G.
Gieene of Green Bay, lor the anti
third tenners, deals almost entirely
with the claim that the Republican na
tional committee is the highest party
authoiity and claims that the court
should not tiy the numerous issues of
fact raised by the pleadings, but
"should enforce the decision of the na
tional committee and convention, un
less the statute has specially vested
the power oi decision in some other
officer or tiibunal that failing deci
sion by the highest paity authority oi
such special tribunal the cotut should
not try such issues but direct the nom
inations of each convention to go on
the ballot on an equality."
The contention of Mr. Chynoweth,
attorney for the La Follette ticket, is
that the state central committee is the
only legal authority to decide which is
the regular ticket that this body was
created through an act of the legisla
ture and that their decision should be
final The answer of the La Follette
faction attacks the national committee,
the credentials committee and the na
tional convention itself.
The arguments continued through
out the day.

Governor Toole Will Undoubtedly Be
Helena, Mont., Sept. 15.The Dem
ocratic convention called for the pur
pose of nominating a state ticket and
presidential electors met here during
the afternoon. Beyond perfecting a
temporary organization and appoint
ment of the usual committees little
progress had been made up to a late
hour. The chief interest centers in
the question of seating the contesting
Heinze delegates from Butte. The
matter of fusion with the Populists and
Laborites is also attracting a great
deal of attention. Governor Toole will
undoubtedly be renominated.

Fight for Control of New York Repub
Saratoga, N. Y., Sept. 15.The ap
parently tanghtd political situation
heie had resolved itself by the time
the Republican state convention actu
ally met into a plain contest between
Governor Odell and Senator Piatt,
which the former and his friends until
the last moment were trying to keep
from taken open form upon the floor
of the convention. There is no antag
onism between Governor Odell and Mr.
Woodruff and none between Mr. Wood
ruff and Lieutenant Governor Higgins.
It was made plain that Mr. Woodiuff
was not averse to an amicable settle
ment of the conflict between his own
and the Higgins interests. It was the
uncompromising attitude of Senator
Piatt in behalf of Woodruff and
against Governor Odell and the Hig
gins movement that prevented the pro
posed conference and precluded the
possibility ot Mr. Woodruffs honora
ble withdrawal from the contest, oi a
compiomise which might have resulted
in the selection of a third" man for the

In opening his sjpeech Temporary
Chairman Fassett said:
"Not being a Democratic nominee
for the presidency I ishall have no hes

He then reviewed khe growth of the
Republican party the last fifty
years, saying its greatest asset is the
record of what it had done and in
quiring why there sljtould be a change.
A sentence that immensely pleased
the convention was:
"It means a better chance today for
a child to be born under the Stars and
Stripes than under any other flag be
neath the sun."
While the cheering at this senti
ment was in progress the band began
to play "The Star Spangled Banner'
and the delegates rose and sang the
song to the end.
At 2:15 p. m. the Convention took a
recess until 11 o'clock in the morning
SHANAHAN WIL CASE DECIDED.
Surviving Heir of Dead Priest Awarded
St. Paul, Sept. 1.5.The Shanahan
will case, one of the most famous
equity cases ever 111''gated in Mmne
sota courts, has fir Aly JieeiL .set tic
after dragging alon^ifu-* ^x ^ears.
Six yeais ago Father Shanahan, a
Caledonia (Minn.l priest, died, leaving
behind an estate valued at $40,000.
which has since increased in value to
over $100,000. He willed the estate
to Bishop Cotter, his superior, to lie
applied to the education of young men
for the priesthood.
Bridget Shanahan, supposed to be
the only surviving heir of the dead
priest, and who had been only a short
time in this country, went to Caledo
nia and engaged attorneys there to
break the will. The case was carried
to the district court, which decided
that the trust in the will was \oid un
der the Minnesota law, which provides
for indefinite and vague beneficiaries.
The decision just rendered ends all
litigation in the case and places the
heir in possession of a small fortune.

their ears chewed off and noses

trouble is as yet unknown.
The constables up to a late hour had
arrested nineteen of the rioters. A
large boardinghouse in which the men

Reasonably Certain That Russian
Transport Will Stay At
Vessel Can Be Put In Seaworthy
Shape, However, Inside
Of Thirty Days.
Oyster Bay, N. Y., Sept. 15.It
seems reasonably certain that the Rus
sian transport Lena will be dismantled
and ordered to remain where she is
now until the conclusion of the Russo
Japanese war, but final decision on
that point may not be reached for a
day or two. A possibility exists that
she may be ordered to depart after
making urgent repairs, but it is only
a possibility. The report of the inspector of boilers
and hulls, whch was referred by the
department of commerce and labor to
the state and navy departments, is sub
stantially as follows:
The boilers and engines are both
badly in need of repairs. To put in
new boilers will require from four to
six months. The tubes of the boilers
are badly pitted, but the Lena has on
board 200 additional tubes which could
be put in in a short time and the in
spector says that the vessel can be put
in a seaworthy condition in from
twenty to thirty days and repaired so
that she will be able to make about
This is regarded by officials of the
navy department as entirely within
the term "reasonable time" used in the
president's proclamation. The state
department is now awaiting the de
tailed report of Admiral Goodrich be
fore taking further action.
CRUISING IN THE PACIFIC
LENA ONLY ONE OF SEVERAL
RUSSIAN SHIPS LOOKING
St. Petersburg, Sept. 15.The admi
ralty still declares it is without offi
cial advices relative to the presence
of the Russian transport Lena at San
Francisco. The. possibility of her dis
armament and other kindred questions
will not be discussed and decided un
til the admiralty is in possession of
full facts regarding the situation. Tel
egraphic inquiries, however, hare elic
ited the information from Vladivostok
that the Lena was sent to the Pacific
with the view of stopping the shipment
of contraband of war. There is an in
timation also, but this is not official,
that certain other vessels, probably
merchantmen purchased in Germany
and converted into armed cruisers, aie
in the Pacific on a similar mission. If
the United States declines to permit
the Lena to have ample time which
to make complete repairs, without
which she could not ventuie to under
take a long voyage either back to Vlad
ivostok or home by way of Cape Horn,
it seems probable that Russia will ac
quiesce to the decision to disarm her.
There is no disposition here to crit
icise the course of the United States
so far as it is revealed in the press
dispatches. MORE THOROUGH INSPECTION.
Another Examination to Be Made of
San Francisco, Sept. 15.Another
and more thorough inspection of the
Russian cruiser Lena will be made
during the day by naval engineers in
order to furnish the state and navy
departments with more complete data
concerning her boilers and seaworthi
ness. In the event that the Lena is
dismantled she will probably be laid
up at the Mare Island navyyard. Rear
Admiral Goodrich has been directed
by the navy department to offer the
navyyard to Captain Berlinsky for that
The watch kept on the Lena is even
more rigid than at first. The gunboat
Bennington has moved nearer to her
and the patrolling launches are re
lieved every day. It is reported that
Japanese Minister Takahira has cen
sured the local Japanese consul, M.
Uyeno, for demanding that Japanese
inspectors be permitted to inspect the
Lena and pass on her need of repairs.
ANOTHER VESSEL COMING.
Said Russian Cruiser Is Due at a Pa
Paris, Sept. 15.The correspondent
of the Echo de Paris at St. Petersburg
has telegraphed his paper as follows:
"The ministry of marine tells me,
regarding the arrival of the Russian
transport Lena at San Francisco, that
another vessel, the Korea, is also due
at an American port on the Pacific.
Orders have been sent to the Russian
ships to scrupulously conform with the
American neutrality rules, which are
expected to permit them taking on
enough coal to reach Vladivostok. I
consider the situation very delicate, as
there is evidence that the ships were
destined to prevent the transport of
contraband goods from the United
States to Japan and perhaps capture
vessels carrying contraband."
Floater Found in a Trunk.
Cleveland, Sept. 15.The body of a
middle aged woman was discovered
floating down the river during the day
tightly wedged in a trunk. The body,
which was clothed in a wrapper, evi

eral days. The police believe the wo
man was murdered. Detectives have
been set to work in connection with

Admiral Walker Discusses Building of
Now York, Sept. 15.Rear Admiral
Walker, the head of the Panama com
misson, declared during the day, on
his an lval from Colon, that the United
States government intended to keep
the two open ports in'the canal zone
in spite of any protests which might
be made by the Panama government.
He added that he did not anticipate
any trouble oveu the making ot Ancon,
on the Panama side of the Isthmus,
and Cristobal, near Colon, free ports
"1 he unfortunate part of the affair,"
he said, "is that it has got into local
politics. Of course the outs have to
protest against what has been done
by the ins."
Admiral Walker said that the work
of excavation was now proceeding
twice as fast and with less men and
at half the cost as under the French
company. Health conditions, he de
clared, were excellent and the canal
construction work was being rapidly
systematized. He declared that state
ments which have found their way
into the press relating to political ex
citement in Panama were greatly exag
gerated. Everything at present seems
to be quiet and satisfactory to the
people of Panama.
ROOSEVELT TO GO TO CAPITAL.

Washington, Sept. 15.President
Roosevelt will return to Washington
the first of next week, when there will
be a renewal of activity in political
circles here, and attention will be
given to public matters which require
it. The fact that President Roosevelt
sees comparatively few politicians who
desire to talk about campaign affairs
during his stay at Oyster Bay makes
it gratifying to the party workeis that
the president is to come here for the
greater part of the next month.
