NO NEWS OF A SORTIE
Northern Armies Maneuvering

Tokio, Oct. 7. It is reported here
that the fire of the Japanese land bat
teries severely damaged four Russian
warships at J he harbor of Port Ar
thur. It is stated one of the vessels
was completely wrecked.

St. Petersburg, Oct. 7. A tactical
duel of the highest interest is now
proceeding in Manchuria. The Rus
sians are trying to draw the Japanese
into battle on the Hun river, along
which river Kuropatkin's forces have
a convenient natural line of defense.
The Japanese are straining to get a
sufficient number of troops around
through the mountains and thus force
the Russians back to Tie pass, around
which place the uneven ground is
more suitable to the islanders.
Another source of Russian supplies
is cut off, the Sinmintin road being
no longer passable, owing to the large
number of Chinese bandits infesting
that part of the country. Gen. Vallcih
ko, constructor of the fortifications at
Port Arthur and in nearly all of Man
churia, in an interesting interview in
the Vremya. says:
"The further retreat of our army to
Tie pass appears to me quite uncalled
for. Our forces are being rapidly con
centrated and reinforced. In the im
mediate future the Russian army will
take the offensive along the whole
He admits the loss of the watei
works at Port Arthur is a severe blow.
Kiprrl Fleet to Cio.
St. Petersburg, Oct. 7. While' the
admiralty claims to have no knowl
edge of the departure of the Port Ar
thur squadron it is inferrable from
the way in which the report that such
an event had transpired has been re
ceived that definite confirmation would
not create surprise.
It is known that no direct orders
have been eent to Admiral Wircn to
break throtigh the blockading fleet,
but it is tacitly admitted that the ad
miral has discretiontry powers to leave
Port Arthur should the situation de
maud or conditions be propitious.
In naval circles it is pointed out
that Wednesday morning the condi
tions might have been favorable for a
sortie. Heavy storms raged on Tues
day and doubtless compelled the block
ailing vessels, and particularly the tor
pedo boats, to seek shelter, thus leav
ing the way clear for a dash to Vladi
vostok. Some naval officers, however,
are inclined to think the firing that
was heard at Chefoo may only have
been directed at blockade runners.

The activity along the outposts is
considered to confirm the general be
liaf that the bulk of Gen. Kuropatkin's
army is at Tie pass. A special dis
patch from Mukden says preparations
for winter quarters are being made,
aiding that semi-subterranean huts
are being constructed for the men sta
tioned about the city. These are de
scribed as being warm and comfort

cold, and hunger.

Hill, Keane & Co. gathered 20,000,-

their experts have proved very false.

May corn will be an attempt to bluff
smaller speculators who are short on

in. The crop on early frost reiorts
was estimated at 1,875.000.000 bushels.
Now the consensus of opinion places it
at 2.5i0,0ou,0i0 bushels. The men who
profit by the slump are country specu

real condition from the first.
