Mikado's Troops After Three Days
of Hard Fighting—Kaiser William
Wishes Success to His Russian
OKYO, July 1O. —After three days severe fighting, ehar

On Thursday the entire Japanese' aviny forced its way
close to Kaiping, overcoming the stubborn resistance of the
3sian infantry, cavalry and artillery located in the narrow
files. The Russians held many strong positions in the
mountainous country, but, despite their desperate resistance,
< y were forced to abandon them one by one.
During ihe night the Russians were greatly reinforced by
he troops brought from the north by train, in preparation
lor a big battle Friday.
RUSSIANS MAKE LAST STAND
The Japanese began the last day's fighting at daylight with
an artillery fire from guns placed on the heights previously
> aptured from the Russians.
The Russians finally took position on the tops of the high
precipices and again offered a stubborn resistance. About
Don they were forced to again withdraw, the Japanese oc
:he last line of defenses, and the Japanese pursued
he enemy despite a severe artillery fire from the Russian
batteVies on the nign hills to tiie north.
The Japanese artillery finally occupied new positions and
iileneed these batteries. In the afternoon the Japanese occu
pied the town without further resistance.

ST. PETERSBURG, July 1O. —Lieut. Gen. Sakharoff, in a

GERMANY MAY MIX
ST. PETERSBURG, July lO.—A sensation has been causc-d
by the publication in the Russky Invalid, the army organ, of a
telegram from Emperor William to the colonel of the Wiborg
(Finland) regiment, of which the emperor is honorary colo
nel-in-chief. The emperor congratulates the regiment on
the prospect of meeting the Japanese, and adds that he is
proud his Wiborg regiment will have the honor of fighting
for its emperor, the fatherland and the fame of the Russian
army. In concluding the emperor says: "My sincere wishes
r.< company the regiment. God bless its standards."
This telegram was only published this morning but by
evening its contents had become widely known and formed
ihe general topic of conversation. A considerable section of
the public even deduced from the message that Germany in
tends before long to abandon her position as a mere onlooker
with regard to events in the far East.
In diplomatic circles, while the telegram has caused much
surprise and comment, it is immediately associated with the
approaching commercial treaty negotiations in Berlin.

Judge Parkers silence in mind in his
reference to the eloquence of life when
"It is not the eloquence in life that
speaks as loudly or counts for as
much as the life itself of a man." The
doctor smiled, but declined to say.

Mac Donald and Judge Hatch, remained
with him until 3 a. m.. receiving- bulle

- ST. LOUIS, Mo., July 10.—Thomas Taggait, of Indiana,
today was indorsed by the Democratic national committee
for chairman of that body.
. \ r The indorsement was a compromise between the Parker
' : forces and the ultra-Taggart men. The supporters of the In
diana man insisted upon his election at today's meeting, but
the friends of the presidential nominee refused to agree to v
his selection until after a conference -with Judge Parker. .
As a compromise measure, it was decided to give Tag
gart the committee's indorsement, and then if his selection
is agreeable to Judge-Parker,- to elect him to the chairmanship
of ;. the national committee, at a meeting to be held mi New;
York at the call of Chairman Jones, of the old committee.
HOLDS MORNING SESSION
The national committee, now in its makeup, met at 2:0O
o'clock this morning and again at 4 o'clock this afternoon
with the avowed intention on behalf of the supporters of
Taggart, of. Indiana, of organizing by electing him chairman.
. The early morning meeting was not fully attended, and
the object aimed at was not accomplished. It was pointed
out by Mr. Mack, of New York, that it would be discourteous
to take any action until Mr. Parker, as the candidate, was
The Taggart men, while not having enough to elect, still
suggested that Mr. Hill, Mr. Sheehan and Mr. Belmont, the
candidate's friends, were still here and adopted a resolution,
that they be invited to meet the committee this afternoon.
ACTION IS BLOCKED
When afternoon came there were three new complica
tions in the way of electing. Chairman Jones, of the old com
mittee, boldly asserted that such action as contemplated
would be unprecedented, and, in fact, illegal. It also turned
out that at a late hour the convention adopted a resolution
authorizing Chairman Jones, of the old committee, to call the
new committee .together in New York city srfr such time as he
Then the other thing was that Senator Hill and Mr. Shee
han left for New York at noon and could not therefore attend
Senator James K. Jones, the retiring chairman of the na
tional committee, made this statement:
"The national convention by specific resolution adopted
last night, authorized me, in fact, instructed me, to call the
first meeting of the new committee in New York city. Until
I. call it the new committee cannot organize and meetings
they have are unauthorized. Now, let me say, forcibly, if
need be, that acting under the convention authority I call the
national committee to meet in New York city at such time
as Judge Parker shall designate, for before I call it I shall
consult him. It would be an unprecedented thing for the
new committee to organize without consultation with the
candidate. Such a tiling was never heard of."
