THE EVENING BULLETIN
MAYSVILLE, KY., TUESDAY, NOVEMBER 1, 1904.
Everything: Indicates That Both
Armies Are lieady For a Re-'
jsumption of Hostilities.
THE JAPS LARGELY REINFORCED,
Second Battle on the Shakhe River
Will Prove Bigger ami More Seri
ous Than the First.
On Ntght of October 30 Japanese At
tacked the Russian Entrench
ments East of Sinchinpu,
But Were Repulsed.
St. Petersburg, Nov. 1. Everything
Indicates that both the Japanese and
Russian armies south of Mukden are
ready for a resumption of hostilities,
if Indeed fighting has not already be
gun. Gen. Kuropatkin reports that the
Japanese have received reinforce
ments from the south and Feng Wang
Cheng. Their concentration seems to
have been accomplished and they are
retidy to resume the offensive both
oast and west of the railroad. There
Is no official estimate of the strength
of the Japanese reinforcements, but
correspondents place it at from 40,000
to 60,000. It is believed that the Jap
anese force has been very largely aug
mented both from Port Arthur, where
an engineering siege has been begun,
and Japan, from whence it is said ev
ery available is drafted.
It seems to be assured that the Jap
anese will be able to meet Gen. Kuro
patkin on almost if not quite an equal
numerical footing. The mere fact that
they are again threatening a double
flanking movement indicates Field
Marshal Oyama's confidence in the ef
ficiency of the foce at his disposal. It
is believed here that the second battle
on the Shakhe river will prove to be
as much bigger and more serious than
the first, as the first was more seri
ous than the battle of Llao Yang. Gen.
Kuropatkin Is confronted by an ex
ceedingly difficult problem. He Is pit
ted against a Japanese force stronger
oven despite its recent losses than
that first opposing his south advance.
If Kuropatkin now succeeds in check
ing or even breaking the Japanese
formation it will open large possibili
ties for the brief remainder of the
present year's campaign. On the oth
er hand, a Russian reverse would ren
der the position exceedingly critical.
Dispatches indicate the resumption
of fighting on both extremities of the
Russian front The night of October
30 the Japanese attacked the Russian
entrenchments east of Sinchinpu, but
were repulsed though the bombard
ment continued throughout the night.
A Japanese advance has also begun
against the Russian positions at Tun
ganon, a mile and a half north of
Bentslaputze, where they encountered
a heavy Russian fire. Thus it appears
that the Japanese are becoming ag
gresive along the whole front, from
Bentsiaputze on the extreme east to
Sinchinjw, which is west of the Shak
he river, where that stream bends
south after crossing the railroad. This
probably constitutes the extreme Rus
sian west, making the battle front
about the same as when Gen. Kuro
patkin began his southern movement.

Knabenshue Made a Second Trial
of the Airship California Ar
row at St. Louis.
CIRCLED IN EVERY DIRECTION.
After Making: Heading' Against Moder
ate Wind ile Landed at the Place
Prom Which He Started.
The Daring Aeronaut Remained in tho
Air 2,000 Feet Above the Earth
For 26 Minutes The Ma
chine Is Dirigible.
St. Louis, Nov. 1. After circling In
every direction at a height of 2,000
feet above the cascades, in sight of
thousands of cheering, enthusiastic
spectators on the World's fair grounds,
Roy Knabenshue, of Toledo, O., in
command of the Baldwin airship, Mon
day returned to the place from which
he had started over the same course
that he had come, covering the three
miles and a half of the round trip un
der his own power and demonstrating
the claims of the inventor, Capt. Thos.
S. Baldwin, of San Francisco, that the
"California Arrow" is not only dirigi
ble, but that it can 'make headway
against a moderate breeze.
Knabenshue started from the aero
nautic concourse at 3:37 p. m. and
returned after his remarkable flight at
4:05 p. m. On the return trip the alr
Bhip sailed slowly over the exact spot
from which it had risen, 26 minutes
previously, and glided about 100 feet
further west where it settled grace
fully to the ground.
The descent of the Arrow was the
signal for a demonstration the equal
of which has not been seen since the
wheels of the World's fair started last
April In response to the pressure on
a key by President Roosevelt. Doz
ens of eager hands were upstretched
to grasp the frame of the airship and
the flying machine, with Its daring
navigator, were carried around the
concourse upon the shoulders of shout
Hats were thrown in the air and
when Knabenshue called for three
cheers for his home town, they were
given with a will and another round
followed for Knabenshue and Baldwin.
At thie Btart the Arrow rose slowly
and easily, Its prow directed toward
the west. When at a height of about
25 feet Knabenshue turned the rudder
and the aerial craft, answering to Its
helm, pointed south and continued its
flight without interruption.
Knabenshue at that time was not
high enough to clear the aeronautic
fence and as he rapidly approached it,
the crowd held Its breath, fearing that
the craft would be dashed against the
barricade and the aeronaut badly in
jured, or perhaps killed.
The young man who clung to the
frail support that affords the naviga
tor of the California Arrow a preca
rious foothold, did not share the anx
iety of the spectatois. Waving his
cap to assure those who were follow
ing his every move, Knabenshue
moved toward the rear of the airship.
The Arrow pointed Its prow upward
and answering the pull of the pro
peller. soared lightly above the fence
and rapidly gained an altitude oi
about 1,000 feet.
After proceeding about tialf to three
quarters of a mile westward, Knaben
shue turned the airship about and
again passed over the concourse, at
the same time increasing altitude un
til he was about 2,000 feet above the
Sailing first to tho northeast and
then to the southeast, occasionally
making complete turns, Knabenshue
continued in a generally easterly direc
tion until over the cascades, the center
of the World's fair grounds, and about
a mile and a half in a direct line from
the point of starting.
At about that time the barely per
coptlble breeze that had been blowing
from the northwest increased to about
eight miles an hour and veered to tho
In order to return to the starting
point It was necessary for Knabenshue
to breast this breeze. It could bo seen
that his first effort to turn the airship
from a course before tho wind waB un
successful and fearB were expressed
that KnabonBhue could not completo
the demonstration by returning to tho
Ho attempted several times to turn
to the left and then suddenly swung
tho rudder sharply in the other direc
tion and the Arrow came into the
wind, staggered a moment, and then,
gaining power, camo on toward the
concourse at a speed that caused the
spectators to cheor and toss their hats
Into the air. Tho demonstration was
observed by Knabenshue who leaned
far out and waved an empty ballast

Britt Lost the Championship of
the World in His Fight
FOULED HIM IN FIFTH ROUND,
Had Sent His Opponent to His Knees,
Then Losing: His Head Gave .
Him a Punch.
It Looked FronV the Start That Britt
Would Win, He Actually Outbox-
ing Gans and Landing Blow
San Francisco, Nov. L Jimmy
Britt, of California, lost the light
weight championship of the world
Monday night when he fouled Joe
Gans. He had sent Gans to his knees
in the fifth round and then losing his
head gave him a vicious punch and
Referee Graney promptly awarded the
decision to Gans on a foul. The same
thing had happened In the fourth
round. Gans had dropped to his knees
to escape a blow that did not land.
Britt struck at him but Graney very
promptly recognized the foul fighting.
It looked almost from the start as If
it were Britt's fight. He actually out
boxed Gans and landed blow after
blow. In the fourth round it was ap
parent that Gans was scared and bar
ring a foul the fight was Britt's to a
While no excuse can be made for
Britt losing his head, it certainly
seemed that Gans invited a foul. The
decision was a great shock to the big
gest crowd that ever filled the pavil
ion, but fair-minded men agreed that
Graney's judgment was just. Britt
showed marvelous strength and quick
ness. He went at Gans like a bull-terrier,
landing body blows alternating
with swings on the Jaw. During the
first three rounds Gans appeared cool
and confident and fairly strong. He
appeared to be feeling Britt out, but
at the end of the third and the begin
ning of the fourth when Britt com
menced to fight more viciously Gans
weakened perceptibly. He landed a
few times on Britt, but the little white
boy paid no attention to the colored
man's light taps and every time he
was hit bore in more,' viciously than
ever. There Is no doubt In the minds
of the majority of those present that
in another contest at the same weights
Britt would defeat Gans easily.
The fight demonstrated that Britt Is
a wonder in his class. He Is a clever
boxer, quick as a cat and a hard hit
ter. With the addition of having a
bull dog grit that makes him fight all
the harder when he is being punished.
Gans and his followers were highly
delighted at the decision and had no ,
After the fight, when Britt had re
covered his temper, he apologized to
Graney and said: "What could I do
when a man fell every time when It
was unnecessary? I am sorry I hit
him while on his knees but I could not
help It." The fifth round' lasted but
3S seconds when the foul was de
clared. GUILTY OF WHJTECAPPING.
