HEAVY FIGHTING IN THE
St. Petersburg, Oct. 4.The official
advices from the front report that all
is quiet along the whole line of the
opposing armies. A slight Japanese
movement has been observed at Feng
tipu, about sixteen miles southeast of
Mukden, but there has been no.-e-At-

right. The Russian scouts have lo.-t
touch with General Kuroki's niam
army, which may give increasing im
portance to the flanking movement
west under General Oku, which hithei'
to has been regarded as a feint for the
real turning movement to strike at
General Kuropatkin's line of communi
cations from the east. It also may
contain the potentialities of a big sa.-
prise. Ten days ago Kuropatkin and
the war office were convinced that laa
Japanese were concentrating at Sian
chan and that an immediate advance
"was imminent in force. Accordingly
the Russians fell back from the passes
of the Da mountains without offering
resistance. But alter several days
they suddenly discovered that the Jap
anese were not pressing forward and
thereupon the Russian scouts
Pushed Out to Ascertain the Cause.
They penetrated as far as Sianchan
and Siaodyr, bringing back the star
tling intelligence that not more than
a brigade of Japanese troops was there.
This forthwith was followed up by an
important cavalry movement and the
reoccupation of the Da range passes,
but Kuroki's main body was not lo
cated. There were no indications,
however, that he had succeeded in
reaching a position further eastward
whence he could make a pivot move
ment against the railroad and conse
quently it was concluded that his main
force must still be between the Yentai
mines and Benzihu, five miles east of
Yentai station.. In a word the present
advices indicate that the Japanese
preparations are being made more
slowly than supposed. Possibly the
delay is owing to their desire to take
advantage of the fine weather to com
plete their arrangements for a long
winter campaign before actively re
suming the offensive. Kuropatkin's
plans are carefully guarded. While he
is disposing his forces to take advan
tage of any situation that may offer
the best opinion is that be will not ac
cept a general engagement, but will
withdraw to Tip pass, where the b-ilk
of his army is massed.
FOOD SUPPLY SHOnT.
Russians at Port Arthur Eating Don-
Chofoo, Oct. 4.Chinese who left
Port Arthur Oct. 1 and who were pre
viously engaged in burying the dead
say the effect of the Russian shells
and machine guns is terrific. The
slopes of a high hill were littered with
mangled bodies and severed heads
and limbs. In one trench the Chinese
buried 300 Japanese and 200 Russians.
While it is true that the regular
water supply of Port Arthur has been
stopped by the Japanese the fortress
has other supplies which can be taken
only when the city falls.
The garrison of Port Arthur now has
sufficient food, but the supplies of
tinned meats are nearly exhausted and
the troops are now slaughtering thirty
donkeys daily for fresh meat, which is
worth $1.20 per pound. Eggs cost 20

FOUR DAYS' FIERCE FIGHTING.
Japanese Losses at Port Arthur Esti

Chefoo, Oct. 4.An official report
from General Stoessel, dated Sept. 23,
has reached Chefoo, confirming a pre
vious report of the repulse of the Jap

began Sept. 19 and ended Sept. 22.
The fighting was of an extremely se
From semi-official sources it is
learned that the attack began on the

four days, various positions changing,

One particular hill was a very im

Japanese attacked repeatedly, day and
night, finally occupying the position on
the night of Sept. 22 after suffering
very severe losses. The attempt to

St. Petersburg, Oct. 4.The admiral

that a Russian warship, believed to be

The officials are evidently not pre

St. Petersburg, Oct. 4.Lieutenant
General Kliegs, governor general of

Physicians Abandon Hope of Re

Experiences Severe Sinking
Spells Which Render Him
Washington, Oct. 4.Postmaster
General Payne is rapidly losing ground
and his condition is such that life is
being sustained only artificially. A
sinking spell at 12:30 p. m., from
which he rallied slightly, rendered him
much weaker than heretofore and one
of the physicians in attendance an
nounced that he was distinctly worse
and that the end was not far off.
Up to 3 a. m. Mr. Payne was
doing well, but at that hour he had a
sinking spell and from 3 to 7 he was
kept alive only by the application of
powerful stimulants. In fact it re
quired the use of a greater quantity of
heart remedies than at any previous
time. There was a weak response to

It has been characteristic of Mr.
Payne's illness that sinking spells
have occurred in the early hours of
the day, but thus far he has shown re
markable rallying power.
In the course of the night Mr. Payne
asked the attending physician about
Wisconsin matters, indicating that he
still has a grasp on public affairs.
FUNERAL OF SENATOR HOAR.
Chaplain of United States Senate Con
Worcester, Mass., Oct. 4.The city
of Worcester during the day bowed be
side the body of her foremost citizen,
George Frisbie Hoar, while the state
ure the nation sympathized with the
municipality in her grief. The funeral
service was held in the Church of the
Unity. In harmony with the unosten
tatious life of the senator and in ac
cordance with his wishes there was
no elaborate ceremony or display,
though the great love of the people of
Worcester and of the commonwealth
induced the family to subordinate their
own feeling and admit, insofar as the
very limited capacity of the building
would allow, a general attendance at
the church and to permit the body
later to lie in state at the city hall.
Rev. Dr. Edward Everett Hale, chap
lain of the United States senate and
lifelong friend of Senator Hoar, con
ducted prayers at the home just before
2 o'clock. Only members oi the imme
diate household and a few neighbors
attended this short service. The body
was then placed in the hearse by the
active pallbearers, all present or past
secretaries of the senator, and the hon
orary bearers, Senator Henry Cabot
Lodge,-T. Jefferson Coolidge, Charles
Francis Adams, Attorney General
William H. Moody, former Governor
W. Murray Crane, General William F.
Draper, Judge Francis C. Lowell of
Boston, Colonel George H. Lyman of
Boston, Stephen Salisbury, Henry A.
Marsh, Dr. F. Stanley Hall and Will
iam E. Rice of Worcester. The active
bearers and the family escorted the
remains to the Church of the Unity.
Rev. Dr. Hale, who was the first
pastor of the Church of the Unity, and
Rev. Rush R. Shippen, D. D., the sec
ond pastor, now of Brockton, Mass.,
officiated at the church. The body was
then conveyed to the city hall, where
it will lie in state until 8 p. m.

VALUABLE JEWELS TAKEN.
Home of Charles S. Pillsbury of Minne
Minneapolis, Oct. 4.While the fam
ily of Charles S. Pillsbury were seated
at dinner during the evening a robber
ransacked the rooms on the second
floor of their residence and made good
his escape with jewelry valued at over
$1,000. While one man worked on the
upper story his confederate stood out
side the window of the diningroom
watching the family and the servants,
ready to give the warning should any
one leave the room.
Entrance to the house was effected
through a side door fronting on the
driveway. The door was locked, but it
was opened with a skeleton key.
Desperadoes Control Town.

in the most approved style and have
looted money drawers and helped
themselves to cigars and whisky. _.

the residents, heavily armed, are

two weeks ago shot and seriously
wounded a neighbor, James Starmer,
and last week shot State Policeman
Louks, who was attempting to arrest
him for the crime. It is suspected
also that Whipple has burned two
barns and consequently all barns
stocked with the season's crops are
guarded night and day by armed farm
hands. Farmers driving along the
country roads with loads of produce
go armed and the same is true of the
men in the fields, who do not care to

DAVIS DISCUSSES ISSUES.
Few.aI Letter of Acceptance of Vice
Elkins, W. Va., Oct. 4.Ex-Senator
Henry G. Davis, Democratic candidate
for the vice presidency of the United
States, has issued his formal letter
accepting the nomination of his party
made at the St. Louis convention.
Mr. Davis' letter, while considerably
shorter than the one issued by Judge
Parker, deals with the subjects now
occupying places in the national table
of issues in a thorough manner.
That the time when a change of ad
ministration is absolutely due has ar
rived is emphasized by Mr. Davis. He
dwells at length on the extravagant
policy of the Roosevelt administration
and reiterates the statement made in
his White Sulphur Springs speech re
garding the increase in the expendi
tures per capita since the time of Bu
chanan. The increase in army cost is
also brought out.
Trusts and the tariff occupy the
usual attention given those subjects
by Democratic orators. The relative
selling prices of steel rails at home
and abroad is used as one of the argu
ments for a revision of the tariff and
the restoration of the Democratic party
to power named as the remedy for
