the families of men killed in battle.
Fodder is becoming exceedingly
The spirits of the men are good and
the food is satisfactory. The rations
of the men at the outposts and in the
advance trenches are sent to them at
night as it would be impossible to do
so during the day because the Japa

JAPANESE PRINCE ROBBED.
His Apartments Visited While He Was
Seeing the Fair.
St. Louis, Nov. 25.Two handsome
diamonds rings and one pearl ring
belonging to Prince Sananaru Pushi
mi of Japan and a beautifully em
bossed emblem belonging to A. Sato,
grand master of ceremonies at the
Japanese court, the gift and decora
tion of a European monarch to Mr.
Sato, have been stolen from the

GREAT BATTLE IMMINENT.
Marshal Oyama Preparing to Attack
St. Petersburg, Nov. 25.Appear-
ances again point to the possibility of
a big battle south of Mukden. The
Japanese, according to an official re
port, have received a severe setback
in the vicinity of Sintsintin, in which
direction they apparently were at
tempting to execute a wide turning
movement. Military opinion here
scarcely believes it possible that the
two great armie? Oan winter less than
a rifle shot distance from each other,
though the heavy defenses on each
side make it extremely difficult for
either to assume the offensive. It is
believed, however, that if the dead
lock is to be broken General Kuropat
kin will let Field Marshal Oyama take
the initiative, as the Russians have
the better of the present position,
namely, a strong line of defense, and
Mukden behind them, making satisfac
tory winter quarters, where the Rus
sian reinforcements are now accumu
lating for an advance next spring. The
Japanese also are being strongly rein
forced. The rivers are already frozen
sufficiently to permit of the movement
of artillery and commissariat trains,
so that the country actually is better
adapted to a Japanese, advance than
during the summer.

FOUR MEN DROWNED.
Ferryboat Upset and Passengers All
Port Huron, Mich., Nov. 25.The
rowboat of William Briggs, the night

a heavy back swell from the shore
suddenly caught the craft and capsized
her. Ferryman Briggs, John Dopson
and Daniel Fisher saved themselves
by hanging to the overturned boat, but
the other four passengers were drown

I paper says Russia ought to be willing
to meet any American overtures half
i way and that, the result should be
equally beneficial to both countries.
