forts enables the Japanese to place
a sufficient force on the north front of
the eastern ridge of forts to execute
a sweeping movement against the bat
tery positions on the crest of the west

which as yet they have not captured.

SAYS SHOOTING WAS JUSTIFIED.
Guy Roche Identifies the Man Who
New York, Nov. 26.Guy Roche, who
was shot twice under the heart in front
of the Hotel Marlborough, identified
Frank Felton, whom the police had al
ready arrested, as the man who shot
him when the prisoner was brought
before him in the hospital. Roche's
statement was made in the presence
oi Felton and two detectives of the
Tenderloin station. Roche said that
the shooting was justified.
The police believe that the trouble
between Roche and Felton, which cul
minated in the shooting, arose over a
woman who had transferred her affec
tiors from Roche to Fulton.
To Coroner Scholer the wounded
man repeated his statement that Fel
ton was his assailant, but insisted
that the shots were fired in self-de
fense and that the act was justifiable.
Roche said he had been drinking heav
ily and that while going along Broad
way he met Felton and a quarrel
arose. Felton, he said, tried to soothe
him, but his condition was such that
he only became more angered. He said
he told Felton he was going to shoot
him. and went to get a gun. He re
turned soon and as he approached Fel
ton he put his hand to his hip pocket
to draw the weapon he says he had
secured. At this movement, Roche
told the coroner, Felton drew his re
volver and fired two shots at him.
Roche declared he had no relatives.

PASSENGER TRAIN NEAR
THREE OF THE VICTIMS WILL DIE
ELECTRIC CAR CUT COMPLETELY
IN TWO AND ALL ON BOARD
Cleveland, Nov. 26.Fifteen people
Were injured, three and possibly more
of whom will die, as a result of a
collision between a fast southbound
train on the Cleveland and Pittsburg
road and a trolley car on the Northern
Ohio traction line near Bedford, a few
miles east of this city. The trolley
car was struck while the latter was
running fully fifty miles an hour.
The electric car was cut completely
in two and the wreckage thrown sixty
or seventy feet to one side. The pas
senger train was not derailed. The
electric car carried as passengers four
teen men and one woman, all of whom
were more or less severely injured. As
quickly as possible the injured were
placed on a train and taken to hos
pitals in Cleveland.
The accident occurred at a crossing
of the two roads. A freight train had
just cleared the crossing and hid from
view the approaching passenger train.
The electric car conductor threw the
derailing switch and as the trolley car
came on to the crossing the collision
AN IMPORTANT WITNESS.
Prosecution Will Spring a New One
in Patterson Trial.
New York, Nov. 26.A new and im
portant witness whose identity thus
far has been carefully concealed will
be brought forward by the prosecu
tion in the trial of Nan Patterson for
the murder of Caesar Young, acocrding
to a story which gained considerable
circulation around the criminal court
building during the day. Beyond the
statement that the witness is a wom
an, that she is young and that she is
well acquainted with both Caesar
Young and the woman now on trial,
the report was indefinite. Of the na
ture of the disclosure which the wit
ness is expected to make nothing
could be learned. That the testimony
is considered of great importance by
the prosecution, however, seems appar
ent. According to the report the wom
an is constantly under the guard of
county detectives. The calling of this
mysterious woman to the witness chair
Is said to be only one of the many
startling features of Assistant District
Attorney Rand's case. Almost of the
same importance to the strength of
his chain of evidence are several doc
uments he has obtained possession of
since Miss Patterson has been a pris
oner in the Tombs. It has been claim
ed since the arrest of the young wom
an that the prosecutor had secured
possession of letters which, it is al
leged, show that the defendant made
threats against the life of Young, but
the documents which, it Is said, will
be produced as a complete surprise,
are of a different character.

RUSSIAN EMPEROR IN NO HURRY
TO ACT UPON ZEMSTVO'S
RULER IS WEARY OF ORIENTAL WAR
8AID TO BE ANXIOUS TO SECURE
TRANQUILITY AT HOME
St. Petersburg/ Nov. 26.According
to the best information obtainable the
zemstvo's memorial is still under con
sideration at Tsarskoe Selo. Emperor
Nicholas is said to be under no illu
sion regarding the gravity of his de
cision and is giving the memorial the
most careful and most earnest con
sideration. By some he is represented
as greatly concerned and grieved over
the situation, both at home and abroad,
to be weary of the war and unrest in
the interior, ready to welcome any
honorable means to bring the war to
a conclusion and anxious to remove
the causes for discontent and secure
the tranquillity at home. The influ

said to be almost entirely hostile to

The emperor is said to have been
acquainted with Interior Minister
Sviatopolk-Mirsky's irrevocabble decis
ion not to remain in the ministry if
the policy of liberalism on which he
went into office is abandoned.
The reactionists and baueaucrats
profess to see no danger in the pres
ent situation, declaring their belief
that the agitation provoked by the
zemstvoists will soon sink out of sight
and affairs resume their normal sway.
If concessions are made they say they
will be slight and will mean little.
Prince Sviatopolk-Mirsky himself, al
though for different reasons, is repre
sented as also opposed to the radical
departure of a liberal regime. Accord
ing to his opinion it must come grad
ually and without shock. In this re
spect his opinion is shared by many
Liberals, who believe that concessions
in the right direction must inevitably
lead to a full realization of their hopes.
Others believe that the real crisis will
be postponed to the end of the war.
