Movement in Progress Near Muk
den Intended to Turn the
Outpost Fighting is Continuous,
Resulting in Many
WAR DISPATCHES SUMMARIZED.
A dispatch from General Kuropatkin
gives further assurance that the Jap
anese movement now in progress has
for one of its objects the turning of
the Russian left. He says a large
force of Japanese is advancing from
Liaoyang by way of Taiche.
Sharp skirmish fighting is of daily
occurrence, an outpost affair at Inpu
resulting in many casualties.
A dispatch from Mukden says doubts
are beginning to be felt as to the pos
sibility of a winter campaign.
FRESH TROOPS ARRIVING
REASON FOR LONG DELAY IN THE
JAPANESE ADVANCE ON
St. Petersburg, Sept. 27.The cause
of the extreme deliberation in the
Japanese advance on Mukden is ex
plained by a dispatch received from
General Kuropatkin, which indicates
that Field Marshal Oyama has not a
concentrated his forces. Fresh troops
are constantly arriving at Bentsia
putze, while others which recentb
reached .Liaoyang are marching up the
Taitse river to Sianchan These rein
forcements presumably come fiom
Japan. As soon as the fourth Japan
ese army at iSiauchan is sufficient^
strong, it is now evident, the Japanese
intend to resort 10 their favorite hang
ing tactics, move a formidable array
against Kuiopatkin's left and compel
the evacuation of Sinisintin. They aie
evidently econnoitering the ground
over which the Sianchan army sviu
march up and cross the river. Mean
while General Kuroki is trying to
seize and cross the Hun river far east
of Mukden. Thence he will move down
the river and co-operate with the
fourth army from Sianchan, while
Generals Oku and Nodzu engage Ki:
ropatkfn's "attention' south of Mukden.
The attacks on Da pass and Saniungku
Sept. 20 were the first symptoms of
this vast flanking movement.
Kuropatkin now reports that Japan
ese scouts have been encountered near
the Hun river, half way to Mukden,
trying to seize Kaoutou pass, ten miles
northeast of Bentsiaputze, in order
to clear the way to Fushun, and that
Oku's and Nodzu's outposts have been
engaged in skirmishing with Cos
sacks near Inpu, between Bentsia
putze and the railroad.
JAPS ENGAGED IN AN EXTENSIVE
TURNING MOVEMENT EAST
St. Petersburg, Sept. 27.A dispatch
haji been received from General Kuro
patkin announcing that the Japanese
are preparing an extensive turning
movement east of Mukden. A large
force is advancing from Liaoyang by
way of Taiche to Sianchan. Skir
mishes have occurred in the valley of
the Hun river and at inpu, between
Bentsiaputze and the railroad. There
were many casualties at Inpu.
General Sakharoif telegraphs that
the Japanese advance guard during
the last few days attempted to occupy
Kaoutou pass, commanding the road
to Fushun, but were repulsed by a de
tachment of the Russian advance
On the south front all is quiet,
though shots are exchanged daily and
skirmishes occur between the advance
JAPS CONTROL WATER SUPPLY.
Capture Several Important Positions
at Port Arthur.
Chefoo, Sept. 27.As a result of
the battle before Port Arthur which
began on Sept. 19 the Japanese suc
ceeded in capturing several important
positions and the Russian tenure
the. big forts guarding the north and
east and northeast sides of the town
is seriously threatened.
Possibly the most important cap
ture during the three days' fighting
was that of Fort Kuropatkin, which,
while of minor value with regard to
preventing the entrance into the town
of the Japanese, had been constructed
for the purpose of protecting the
source of the garrison's water supply.
The control of this water supply i3
now in the hands of the Japanese.

DISCUSS INDUSTRIAL PEACE.
Delegates to Interparliamentary Con

New York, Sept. 27.A large num
ber of delegates to the Interparlia
mentary congress, who have just com
pleted a tour of the United States ana
who are now in this city as guests ox
the United States government, were
given a luncheon during the day by
the national executive committee of
the Civic federation at the Hotel Astor.
"Industrial Peace" was the topic of
The speakers brought out the fact
that it is hoped by the executive com
mittee that the advantages of the fed
eration will be made so plain to the
delegates and that they will be so im
pressed with the benefits resulting
from such an organization that they
will arrange for and promulgate a
plan that will eventually result in the
formation of a civic federation in
every European country.
An international civic federation
was spoken of as not a mere possibil
ity but a rapidly growing reality. The
scope and benefits of the body both to
laborers and employers were spoken
of and its speedy accomplishment

EARLY IN COMiNG YEAR.
Probable Hate of Meeting of Second
"Washington, Sept. 27.-f-President
Roosevelt's announcement to the dele
gates to the Interparliamentary union
that at an early date he wbuld invite
the nations of the world to send dele
gates to a second peace conference
whose work should be supplemental
to that of the conference at The Hague
is regarded as a historic advance to
ward the adjustment of international
difficulties through the medium of arbi
tration. Quite naturally the question
arose as to how soon the president
might, call the conference. He did not
indicate in his address the probable
time of his issuance of the call, but it
can be stated that he will not await
the conclusion of peace between Japan
and Russia, both signatories to The
Hague convention, before issuing his
call. It is his present intention in
about six weeks to bring the matter
to the attention of the nations ^-of the
world with a view to ascertaining
their desires as to the time and place
of holding the second conference.
These preliminary inquiries will be
made through the department of state.
As soon thereafter as the replies re
ceived shall warrant the president will
issue his formal call for the confer
ence, which probably will,be early in
the coming year.
PURE FOOD CONGRESS.
International Convention in Session at
St. Louis, Sept. 27.The interna
tional pure food congress assembler!
during the day at the world's fair for a
convention that will continue in ses
sion during the week. The purpose of
the congress, as stated by the National
Association of State Dairy and Food
Departments, under whose auspices it
is held, is to call into conference the
food scientists, food control govern
ment authorities and food manufactur
ing interests in order that some action
may be passed relative to the control
of food adulterations and misbrand
ing. With a view to establishing a
standing international food commis
sion on adulteration recommendations
to that end will probably be made by
the foreign delegates. The prohibition
of colors and antiseptics, the adultera
tion and false labeling of wines and
whiskies and the baking powder con
troversy are among the questions that
will come up for discussion. A reso
lution will be presented at the con
gress demanding that all foods com
peting for awards at the exposition be
free frona adulterations .and truthfully
