A New Fighting Race. A new type
of fighter as if sprung from a new
race has sui passed history itself. In
capturing Port Arthur the Japanese
achieved what the world thought was
impossible, what the Russians and the
indomitable Stoessel were positive was
utterly impossible. In the achievement
they made a new record as a, race of
fighters in the world's history, for none
have ever met such diabolical, death-
dealing weapons as have been devised
by brains of modern scientists. The
siege of Port Arthur for four and a
half months forms a story of one con
tinuous, monster, unbroken heroism, ef
days of furious, remorseless battles by
night, by day, beneath sunlight, mooir-
Iight, searchlight anl always an awful
casualty list. It is this new fighter
and the very scone of this immortal
struggle that will be produced by Ly

Beaten by a Thug. Adolph Rr.fe, the
cigar maker, was held up and badly
beaten by a lone highwayman Thurs
day evening and robbed of $1 in cash.
The holdup occurred between S and 'J
o'clock on Seventeenth street between
Kishteenth-and-a-half and Nineteenth
avenues. Mr. IJufe was on ' his way
home, 320 Eighteenth-and-a-half av
enue, and was passing along a dark
part of the street. Suddenly a man
sprang from behind a tree, striking
him on the head with a club. So fierce
was the attack that Mr. Bufe had.no
chance to put up a resistance and was
knocked down. Then the tough kicked
him a time or two, which rendered the
nan unconscious. His pocke'bood.
containing about $1 was taken and the
victim left lying upon the sidewalk.
Passersby were attracted to the place
and carried the unconscious man to i
piaee of safety and restoratives ap
plied. It was considerable time before
the man regained consciousness and
was able to continue on his way home.
The police were notilied but no arrests
have been made.

Cleaned Out Saloon. With cuspi
dors as weapons Ed McVey cleaned out
Ed Ward's saloon on Thursday even
ing about 10 o'clock. Whether McVey
thought it was closing up time is not
known, but he certainly suspended
business for a short time. The trouble
arose when Ed refused to sell his
namesake a drink. McVey was under
the influence of liquor and insisted
upon having the beverage. His part
ner, W. J. Lacey, urged McVey to get
the drink and finally in desperation he
seized the cuspidor and hurled it at
Et, who was behind the bar. He dodg
ed the missile, which crashed through
the large mirror and it served to put
the crowd to flight. After the first
wave of fright had worn off, the three
men in the corner nerved up enough
to suggest that someone telephone for
the police, and being of an obliging
nature McVey did so. Xight Sergeant
De.Iaeger was delayed for some time
by a long freight train and arrived
upon the scene just as McVey was
about to take a second drink of whis
key. He was taken to the police sta
tion and his partner followed. The two
were locked up. Justice of the Peace
Ongelson bound McVey over to the
grand jury under $300 bonds, malicious
mischief being the charge preferred.
Lacey was given 15 days in jail.
