A DREADFUL SIEGE.

KEHOE'S GREAT RECORD
MEET DEATH IN UTTER SILENCE.
Russian Guns Hade Continual Lanes
in Japs Hanks But Were Closed
Up as if by Magic,
The Masses Surged Onward Until
They Were Close to the Russians;
a Mine Was Fired and Bodies
Hurled High In the Air.
London, Nov. 6. The Dally Mall's
Che Foq correspondent haa obtained
a letter from a Russian in Port Ar
thur dated October 27 in which the
writer declares that it would need the
pen of a Zola or tho brush of Haerest
chagln to picture the awfulness of the
Biege. The letter continues:
"The uncanny part of it all is that
men meet death in utter silence. One
pees the fiercest of fights but hears
no sound. One moonlight night at
Etse mountain I watched an assault of
a ghostly mass of moving figures,
through which continual lanes were
made by our guns, admitting, glimpses
of scenes behind. These gaps were
closed up as if by magic, and the
masses surged onward while our men,
forsaking the trenches, sought the
shelter of the forts. On they came
until, when they were close up to us,
the mines exploded and the earth
opened. Bodies were hurled high in
the air, and then sank again to earth.
Hands clutched rifles, and in tho
moonlight the bayonets looked like
fire works shooting upwards and as
cending point downwards into the
bodies of men. I dream of the sight

because of inability to repair vessels
previously damaged. We have not a
Bingle bottle of anaesthetics left. Just
think what agony the wounded must
endure. The food is of the coarsest
and even that is becoming scarce,
while disease Is rife and sanitary con
ditions are deplorable. It is impossi

resources; but we are all determined
to hold out, come what will, in the
hope of relief. For every man we,

Negotiations Instituted Between the
United States and Germany.
Washington, Nov. 5, Negotiations
have been initiated for a treaty of ar
bitration between Germany and the
United States. Several days ago
President Itoosevolt suggested to Bar
on Sternburg, the German ambassa
dor, that a treaty of arbitration be
tween the United States and Germany
would, in his judgment, be very desir
able. Ambassador Sternburg coincid
ed with this view nnd told tho presi
dent that he would Inquire of his gov
ernment what steps, if any, it desired
to take In the matter. Late Friday
Ofternoon Ambassador Sternburg
called up President Roosevelt and In
formed him that the German govern
ment expressed itself as entirely
agreeable to the president's proposi
tion and that he had been directed to
open formal negotiations for such a
treaty. These negotiations will bo con
ducted by Ambassador Sternburg on
the part of Germany and Secretary

CITIZENS OF MAYSVILLE LARGEST BENEFICIARIES.
Has Been Instrumental In Having Expended Here Seventy-One
Thousand Dollars of Public Money Within
the Past Two Years.
A VOTE FOR HIM NEXT TUESDAY IS A VOTE FOR MAYSVILLE.
Ae the battle in this Congressional district
draws to a close, the Bulletin feels that it can
point with pardonable pride to the fulfillment of
its prophesies on the Congressional career of Hon.
Jas. N. Kehoe. When first elected such was our
confidence in his character and ability that we
predicted for him a career of marked usefulness to
his country and constituency. This confidence
was baBed upon our intimate knowledge of the
man's singleness of purpose in his devotion to
duty. Extravagant however as our forecast then
seemed the actual accomplishment of his Con
gressional service far surpasses anything we had
In the Bhort time'Mr. Kehoe has represented
this district he has accomplished as much, as any
Congressman this or any other district ever had
and the people of Mayaville being the largest
beneficiaries of his efforts muBt and do feel a just
pride in hiB great success.
He has brought into Maysville the sum of
$71,000 of public money within the last two years
of our city, while every intereet of Mr. Kehoe is a
part of Mayavillle.
Communities, like individuals, must help
themselves and there is no way in which it can be
better done than by standing by a man who has
proven such a serviceable friend to this communi
ty, as Mr. Kehoe has. Lay aside your politics and
vote for him. Every improvement added to the
town helps you.
Mr. Kehoe now stands upon the threehold of
a career of national scope, and with his influence
growing in Congress each year will enable him to
be of greater eervice to the people, and Maysville
may safely calculate that he will perfect tho im
provements already begun and add otherB in the
But the ambition of Mr. Kehoe to advance
the material interests of Maysville and the dis
trict has not interfered with his efforts in behalf
of the humbleet of bis constituents for no citizen,
regardless of color, sex or politics, has requested
his services, in any particular, without having

and it is now being expended in a way which will
not only improve and beautify the city but also
increase the value of real estate within its corpo
rate limits, while tho merchants and laborers are
boing benefited by itB expenditure. And when
the public improvements now under construction
are completed their maintenance will be a source
of additional employment and annual revenue to
With these facta before us, to every voter in
Mayaville, regardless of politics, who haa at heart
the welfare of tho city, we submit the suggestion
that it would be both Unwiee and ungrateful upon
their part to aid in dofeating Mr. Kehoe with any
one, much leB8 with a man who lives seventy miles
away and has absolutely no interest in tho future
their interest served with zeal and intelligence.
Therefore wo feol that with perfect propriety
we can appeal to every voter to support Mr. Ko
hoe on the ground that in doing bo they are serv
ing themselves and our town as well.
Aa wo have foupd him liberal and broad
minded in all the relatione of life, let us show our
appreciation of the man and his efforts in behalf
of Maysville by ignoring party lines and giving
'him a majority in every ward. Do not let him lose
a ward tho one he loses shows the least appreci
ation; tho ones he carries the largest shows the
Upon Mr, Kehoo'a private character nothing
need be said to his neighbors, for his life haa been
spent in our midst and stands to-day as an open
book upon whose pages there ia not a blot. A
vote for him ia a voto for the City of Maysville.

ses from the east and west will com
bine forces as soon as Webb arrives
and close in on the bandits at once.
