The strike in Finland is already a

rom a place of vantage the corres
pondent was able to see shells occa
sionally strike the barracks and forti
fications, causing fires to start up. The
mutineers at that time seemed to have
the upper hand and the Russian com
mander was forced to flee with 2,000
loyal infantry to the furthermost part
of the southern section of the town of
Sveaborg, where he was holding out.
CumpoMed of SevfD IxInnilM.
The Sveaborg fortress is composed
of seven islands, of which Sveaborg
island is the center. Half of Sveaborg
with half of Sandhamm islands were
in the hands of mutinous artillerymen,
sappers and miners, with government
forces commanding the other halves of
the whole of Langorn,. Nicholal and
Fori IfloHt Ioiih Daiuncnl.
The permanent fortifications on Svea
borg island were badly damaged by
the shell fire exchanged between the
combatants. It is claimed troops on
Harakka island, nearest to this place,
could silence the guns of the mutineers,
but the soldiers refused to fire on their
comrades, although they remained
faithful to the government.
Had I'pper IlniMl
The mutinous artillerymen were well
fortified, not only being able to hold
their positions, but seemingly having
the upper hand and the large 11-inch
guns in the hands of the government
forces did not appear to have the
slightest effect on the earthworks held
by the mutineers, though the stone and
brick fortifications suffered consider
ably. WitnenMeil a Charit.
The correspondent saw a charge of
the government infantry on Sveaborg
island repulsed by the mutineers. The
infantry succeeded in creeping np to
a spot near the Russian church, keep
ing well out of sight, and finally they
made a rush at the positions held by
the mutinous soldiers. But the attack
ing party was met by the fire of ma
chine guns, and they at once broke and
fled, leaving many dead and wounded
on the ground. Not infrequently shells
went over Helsingfors and many bul
lets fell in town, resulting in several
persons being wounded.
Not Vint Trouble.
In conversation with a member of
the regiment of sappers and miners'
here, the correspondent learned this
was not the first troubla in the regi
ment, but was the sequel of many smal
ler disturbances. The sappers and
miners on several previous occasions
had refused to obey the orders of their
officers. The government commanders
expect to assemble troops tonight on a
small peninsula near the fortifications
occupied by the mutineers on Sand
hamm island, and make an effort to
cross the channel and take the mutin
eers in front and rear.
Sfearly Out of Food.
The latter have but little food left,
and if they do not succeed in replenish

able to hold out. As this dispatch is
being written sound of ' the firing of
big guns announces the struggle, after
a short interval of cessation, has re

Great excitement prevails here. The
Red Guard, an armed socialist legion,
under the command of Johan Koch,

present. The railroad was torn up for

CUMMINS RULES CONVENTION; BOOMED FOR PRESIDENT!
Secures Not Only Own Renomination by Republicans, but Dominates Entire Ticket Mention of
Des Moines, Iowa, Aug. 2. Albert B.
Cummins was renominated as the re
publican candidate for governor yes
terday. Not only that happened, but more.
The governor absolutely controlled the
convention. He named the otber can
didates and especially Garst for lieu
tenant governor, framed the platform
and secured a majority on the state
committee, which gives him what he
never has had before, control of the
party machinery. It was Cummins'
Proponed for President.
Out of it all has arisen the cry in
Des Moines that Cummins is the logi
cal candidate for the next republican
nomination for the presidency. It is
entirely a local boom, but Iowa Is al
ways ambitious, and the boom of Sec
retary of the Treasury Shaw, an avow
ed candidate for the presidential nom
ination, got, if not a black eye at least
a slap in the face. The secretary was
hissed loudly in the state convention
of his own party and the hissing was
begun by delegates from his own home.
It was the Tenth congressional district
that started the trouble and it is in this
district Secretary Shaw lives.
CntnniinH' Vote U3X.
Governor Cummins was rendninated
by a vote of 933 against 603 for Per
kins and 104 for Rathbun. Then Garst
was named for lieutenant governor by
917 1-3 to 722 2-3. The latter vote was
perhaps more significant, as there had
been no doubt since Tuesday night that
Cummins would be renominated, but
his opponent made a last stand on
It was when Cummins was called be
fore the convention that his admirers
thought they had in his brief speech
material for a presidential boom. The
governor made the point that it was
not his personal qualifications which
had produced the result, but the eco
nomic ideas he represented. He spoke
for what he described as the progres
sive spirit of the republican party. "All
I can say," he began, "is, that I will do
all in my power to exemplify the spirit
which moves this magnificent conven-

"The party stands for material pros
