L,J OQD ON THE FIELD
RUSSIAN LOSSES IN FRONT OF
JAP LEFT ARMY ESTIMATED
With General Oku's Left Army at
the Front, Oct. 16, via Tientsin, Oct.
21.The seven days' battle north of
Yentai was the heaviest blow struck
the Russians by the Japanese, so far
as loss of lifejs concerned. The left
Japanese army during the week buried
4,100 Russian dead left in front of its
lines. A village in front of the left
wing contains many Russian dead, but
the shell fire of the retreating Rus
sians prevents the Japanese from
reaching them. Conservative esti
mates place the Russian casualties at
not less than 25,000. Probably many
more dead are on the field in places
not yet searched. The Japanese report
their total casualties at a little over
3,000 killed and wounded. The prin
cipal Russian casualties occurred in
determined counter attacks on each
village captured by the Japanese. The
Russian attacking parties were in
many cases entirely annihilated. For
the first time the Russians have met
the Japanese on an equal footing, not
having strong defensive positions to
depend upon, and for the first time
they attacked the Japanese in their
own trenches. The
Russians Fought Bravely
but they were unable to drive the Jap*
anese but or to hold their own posi
tions against fierce charges. Almost
in every case the Russians retired
from their positions at the first charge,
then they made repeated attempts to
The Japanese left army, with a front
of nearly ten miles, moved farward
about jive miles, fighting over every
inch of the ground. The final retreat
of the Russians was almost a rout
The Japanese extreme left advanced,
driving the remnant of Russians
ahead. The Russians covered their
retreat well with artillery and carried
away much baggage and many wound
ed. At 7:30 this morning the Russians
made a determined counter attack at
Lamuting with two regiments of in
fantry and two batteries of artillery.
They were repulsed after a half hour's
fighting with heavy loss. The Japa
nese left army during the past seven
days' fighting has captured thirty-four
guns, a large number of rifles and
overcoats and 100 prisoners. The
strength of the Russians opposed to
the left army were three corps and
thirty companies of artillery. All but
a very small part were newly arrived
The Japanese soldiers were prac
tically the same that fought before
Liaoyang. Chinese report that heavy
works are ready for the Russians along
the Hun river. The Japanese are un
decided where the next stand will be

Large Number of Rifles and Quantities
Tokio, Oct. 21.It is announced at
headquarters here that the left Japa
nese army captured near Langtouchieh
6 ammunition carts, 5,354 rifles, 4,920
rounds of field gun ammunition, 78,000
rounds of rifle ammunition, tents,
clothing, sabres and implements.
Additional casualties of the center
army just reported are 12 officers killed
and 30 wounded.
Suspension of Operations South of
St Petersburg, Oct. 21.The sus
pension of operations below Mukden
continues. It is Jtihted in military
circles that the next developments
should be looked for eastward, but
whether on the part of the Japanese
or Russians is not revealed.
A dispatch from General Sakharoff
reports all quiet along the front and
that in spite of the soggy condition of
the country roads, which are described
as seas of mud, the Russian scouts
continue to show great enterprise in
examining the Japanese positions. A
detachment of 200 Cossacks recon
noitered the Japanese left southwest
ward along a line extending westward
from the railroad whore it crosses the
Schili river, through the villages of
Paitsantai, Tadousampu and Sandepu,
the latter fifteen miles west of the
railroad. The Japanese sentinels fired
and retired as the Cossacks rode rap
idly along the line, but near Sandepu
the Cossacks unexpectedly ran into a
good sized Japanese T?rce, with ma
chine guns. The latter opened a mur
derous fire on the Russians, killing
many horses and mortally wounding
Captain Turgenieff, but all the Cos
sacks succeeded in getting away. Not
one was killed on the field.
No statement is made as to what is
transpiring on the Russian left.
JAPS FILE COMPLAINT.
Russian Troops Accused of Wearing
Washington, Oct. 21.As indicated
in the Tokio dispatches the Japanese
government, through Minister Taka
hira here, has entered a formal pro
test against the use by certain bodies
of Russian troops of Chinese clothing,
the offending troops being specified in
the complaint. The state department
has transmitted the Japanese protest
to Spencer Eddy, secretary of the
American embassy at St. Petersburg
and charge in the absence of Ambas
sador McCormick, for presentation to
the Russian government.
It is understood here that the Chi
nese clothing was not used by the Rus
sian troops to deceive the enemy, but
simply to make good the failure of
the Russian quartermaster's depart
ment to supply much needed warm
clothing upon the sudden advent of
cold weather in Manchuria. Never
theless it is believed here that the
wearing of this Chinese clothing con
stitutes a technical violation of the
rules of war.
ABOUT FIVE THOUSAND.
Estimate of Losses Sustained by Japa
nese Left Army.
Tokio, Oct. 21Reliable reports re
ceived from private- sources estimate
the losses of the Japanese left army
during the recent battle at about 5,000.
The number of Russian dead is
largely increased by the further dis
covery of bodies, notwithstanding the
nightly removals by lantern light.
The Russian forces have been rein
forced by about 30,000 men of the Sev
enteenth corps, a large portion of the
Tenth corps and portions of the Fifth
and. Sixth Siberian corps, which re
cently arrived. In all six divisions of
the Russian army now confront the
Japanese left army.

MEAT FOR RUSSIANS.
British Steamer Carrying Immense
Cargo Is Purchased.
London, Oct. 21.In spite of the
fact that the Baltic squadron is at sea
war risks on clothing, etc., for Japan
are weaker. The squadron will cer
tainly be capable of intercepting mer
chant vessels carrying contraband
goods for Japan.
The Cape route as the way by which
the big ships will go is indicated by
the purchase of the British steamer
Maori King. This steamer recently
arrived at Liverpool from the river
Platte with an immense cargo of frozen
meat. She has been bought without
unloading by French intermediaries
and sails at once for the Cape with her
cargo of meat.

JAPANESE MAKE GAINS
ARE NOW WITHIN FIVE HUNDRED
YARDS OF MAIN FORTRESS
AT PORT ARTHUR.
GARRISON IS ALMOST WORN OUT
FIGHTING FORCE IN BESIEGED
TOWN NUMBERS ONLY FIVE
Chefoo, Oct. 21.The important re
cent events at Port Arthur include the
capture by the Japanese of further
minor positions near Rihlung moun
tain and the severe damage of a Japa
nese torpedo boat destroyer by strik
ing a floating mine.
According to Chinese advices which
reached here during the day and which
are confirmed in essential points by
Japanese letters from Port Dalny the
Japanese made assaults on the remain
ing outer works of Rihlung mountain
at dawn Oct. 8 and were repulsed.
The following day the Russians made
an attack on the Japanese trenches
and thoy in turn were repulsed. The
Japanese immediately followed with
another assault, resulting in the cap
ture of an iron railroad bridge and the
heights south of the bridge, which is
500 yards from the main fortress.
The importance of these captures
lies in the fact that they curtail the
Russian fire in harrassing Japanese
who may attempt to advance on the
trenches located on the slope of Rih
lung mountain. This attack seems to
have been a surprise for the Russians,
the Japanese claiming that they lost
only fifty men. Since the capture of
the points mentioned the Japanese as
sert that they have successfully resist
ed numerous sorties in attempts to re
At 10 o'clock on the morning of Oct.
12 seven Russian torpedo boat destroy
ers emerged from the harbor of Port
Arthur and later they were followed
by two more destroyers. This squad
ron proceeded to Shaohingtau and
bombarded the Japanese left flank.
Four Japanese torpedo boat destroyers
hurried to the scene and the Russians
retired to the harbor, followed Jay^the
Japanese. The pursuit ceased upon
entering the mined area. One Japa
nese destroyer, while returning, hit a
mechanical mine and was severely
damaged, but she managed to reach
Port Dalny and is now being repaired.
Drop Big Shells in the Harbor.
Meanwhile the Japanese siegeTguns
continued to drop big shells in the
harbor, the Japanese claiming that
they damaged the Russian gunboat
Giliak, which is alleged to have been
hit three times and to have changed
her anchorage from the east basin to
the shelter of Tiger hill. It is also be
lieved that the funnel of another Rus
sian warship was pierced, as a dense
cloud of smote followed the landing
of a shell on board of her.
A Chinaman who arrived here dur
ing the day declares that during the
Japanese assault on Rihlung mountain
the Russian battleships fired almost
incessantly to the north.
The Japanese at Taku mountain
have dropped a ceaseless storm of
shells on the Chinese town and many
rifle bullets also fell into the place.
The Chinaman adds that the fighting
was very severe and that the Japanese
loss was considerable. He says he
left Port Arthur Oct. 18 because he
was frightened by the shells.
It is asserted that the Russian force
at Port Arthur now numbers 5,000
men, excluding the militia, which is
not engaged in the fighting but patrols
the streets, doing provost duty and
guards the arsenals, etc.
Winter clothing is very scarce at

Russian soldiers are wearing Chinese
shoes and some of them are unable to

Alleged Canadian Ballot Box Stuffer
Sault Ste. Marie, Mich., Oct. 21.P.
Galvin, an employment agent in the
Michigan Soo, who was charged with
complicity in election frauds at the re
cent election of C. N. Smith, Liberal
candidate for the Ontario legislature,
has made a confession, implicating
among others a member ofjhe Liberal,
The confession, which was read In
court, described in detail the famous
trip of the steamer Minnie M, carrying
a load of Americans to Michipicoten,
where the entire number was voted
in the different ^polling places, imper
sonating citizens who were on the
registration rolls but who were absent
from the district.
Galvin also alleges that a representa
tive of the Liberal party called on him
in reference to a letter written by him
self to a member of the cabinet de
manding that the Liberals get him out
of the trouble into which the investi
gation of Smith's election had plunged
him and that this individual assured
him that the Liberals would pay the
fine imposed on him by the Canadian
court which investigated the election
frauds and get him out of trouble.
This, he says, the Liberals have
failed to do and his confession fol
lowed as a result of this failure.
WISCONSIN CONTEST CASE.
Voluminous Opinion of State Supreme
Madison, Wis., Oct. 21.The long
delayed majority opinion of the su
preme court in the case of the Repub
lican contest was filed during the
morning by Judge Marshall. It makes
sixty typewritten pages and merely
affirms the decision made two weeks
ago, quoting authorities voluminously.
The principal interest centers in the
dissenting opinion by Chief Justice
Cassoday, which is, in substance, that
the "stalwarts" were right and the
"halfbreeds" wrong in their conten
tion. He holds that the case comes
within the first clause of section 35,
Revised Statutes, and that the duties
of the secretary of state are minis
terial and hence subject to the control
of the court. He holds that the second
clause merely intends to cover cases
not mentioned in the first one and
that when there is a division in a party
it should be covered by the first clause.
Where there are two statutes, the
earlier special and the later general,
the first should govern. In other words,
the official ballots should be prepared
by the secretary of state under the
first clause of the section subject to
the control of the court.

and the sultana, to whom he bore a
gift of money from the United States
government. General Goodale said he
believed that the government of the
Moros will prove to be one of the most
difficult problems we have to fear in
the Philippines owing partly to their
Mohammedan faith and certain prac
tices going with and sanctioned by
that form of religion, such as po

vorce question by which the innocent
party in a divorce for adultery may

ments was earnest on both sides. The
house was first divided on the ques
tion of concurring with the house of
bishops in their action absolutely pro

persons. Concurrence was refused,
the clergy of 24 dioceses voting for

divided in sentiment, as were the lay
men in 4 dioceses. On a vote of this
kind the divided vote is counted in the
negative. The high church dioceses
all voted to concur with the bishops.

of the cruiser Olympia and Lieuten
ants William C. Watts and Charles T.
Jewell, aides of the admiral, who were
accompanied by Secretary White and
Captain Charles H. Stockton, the naval
attache of the American embassy.
Then, with an informal "Well, let's
have lunch," the king, wearing an ad
miral's uniform, led the way to the
.diningroom. Ambassador Choate was
on the king's right and Admiral Jewell
on his left. The king, as usual with
American guests, demanded their lat
est stories and chatted most informally
until near the end of the luncheon,
when he rose and proposed the health
of President Roosevelt, the American
navy and the officers of the visiting
squadron. No formal reply was made,-,*
but Admiral Jewell told King Edward
how much he appreciated the compli-.
ment. The king chatted with each
member of the party, showed them
the palace pictures and ended the most_
cordial informal party by saying how
he was always pleased to see Ameri
can war vessels in England.
