An Associated Press dispatch from
Toklo says: General Kuroki ha3 administered
a severe defeat to the Rus
elan forces which defended the Russian
right flang at Liao Yang, winning separate
actions at Yuohuiikzu and
Yangse Pass. These two places arc
twenty-six miles apart, but the two
actions wore fought at the same time. I
i
The Russians held strong positions.
Tho thermometer registered over 110
degrees Fahrenheit and the soldiers j
suffered from heat exhaustion.
.At Yushullkshu the Russians hi.l
? ' two divisions of Infantry an 1 some
cavalry, with which they vicorouslv
resisted the JtKpan98-> assaults.
Both attacks wore begun at ''awn
on Sunday, July SI. At Yusirullkshii
the Japanese carried Hie Russian right ,
and left winga, but on account of tho j
strength of the main Russian position i
they were unable to pro33 the attack, i
Tno two arnile.i roste.l Sunday night, j
0*hh,. facing each other.
At dawn Monday the Japanese re-j
sumed the attack anj by noon they i
had dislodged the on amy and driven
them four miles to Laohling.
At Y ingse Pass also tho Japanese
were Fucceaaful. Their artiiiory opened
fire on the enemy end the Infantry
moved forward from Mnkumeza. Tho
attack on this place was made at 1
o'clock StinJayHifternoon, and by nlgii'
fall tho Japane-o wore in possession
of a majority of the Russian positions,'
although the enemy hirl resisted with
determination. The Japanese forces'

tfon and ?s auk was made on
fttt eft By 9 o'clock Mon(MMnorning,
Yangse Pass and the
.^i^WrtMiding heights had been raptured.
General Kuroki explains tho
slowness of these actions by aaying
that the difficult topography of the
battlefields made it impossible to secure
good artillery positions, anil that
the great, heat fatigued his troop--.
The Russian force at Yangse Pass
was estimated at two and one-half divisions,
ami four batteries of art! * ry.
TIiq enemy retreated toward Tanstioyen.

to let her go," says tho dispatch.
A Japanese coasting steamer was

The state election commission, which

Heretofore it has been customary to
place a negro on the commission in
some of the delta counties where
th~re arc no white republicans, as the
1 iw requires that the republican party
be represented, but the stato commission
has decided this year to have
no negroes on any county commission.
They will continue the custom of having
one republican and two demo -rats
and the negro will not be selected for

"The Knight Commander only stopped

one of the mo3t observant merchants |
in Birmingham, who has been through
four strikes in the district, gives a
gloomy outlook to tho situation. Business
is beginning to feel the effects of
it, notwithstanding the roseate view3
expressed by many that the strike
woud soon bo (jver. This merchant i3
not so hopeful, and expressed the belief
that the end of it would not bo
seen before the end of the year.
Eight thousand men in the district
aro out" of employment, who have been
earning from $2 to $3 par day, and
spending it in the cUy, he contends,
is honn 1 tn hrlnc hmvl tiinr?a tr? tho
merchants of the district. There are
now employed by the commercial coal
men about 4,000 miners, whose output
is used for commercial purposes only,
not a pound of which can be used by
the furnace men, under the agreement.
Only two-thirds of the United Mine
Workers have employment, besides a
larga number of helpers in and. about !
the mines, who arc not members of
the un'on. Birmingham is largely delendent
on this trasle of the miners.
There is very ii tie agricultural trade
in the immediate section, and the good
crops of Hip country cannot be looked
o to fill up the vacancy in trade caused
by the strike.
That both s! * >s to the trouble are
determined to fight to a finish there is
no doubt, an 1 the question at is-^ie is
whether unionism will bo rt -*nized
or disrupted. IJoth sides to the controversy
keep in good humor, apparently,
and no disturbance i:; expected.

Declaring the t,tr!ke broken an;! that
the working force hail been recrr.i'.?d
by more than 1.C00 men and wjmcn,
many of whom had deserted the union
cause, the Chicago packers Monday
began the week'3 operation with tiio
largest receipts of live stock that
have reached the stock yards since
July 12, when the strike began. Thee
were 915 cars carrying 25,000 cattle,
JJb.OUO Hogs and 17,000 sheep in tho
day's shipment from tho west, and
with thla supply tho killing gangs !n
the big plants were busily occupied.
Assertion that the strike is broken
were scouted by tho strikers as being
manifestly absurd.
Swift & Co. declared that nearly all
their old millwrights and car workers
had returned to work, anil further asserted
that the thin never intends <o
take back striking teamsters or burn
men, the claim being made that 'ho
packers had learned to do without wagons.
All shipments to Chicago
branches will be made by railroad.
Retailers will take their wagons to
the branches for purchases.
Among the toilers who reached the
stock vards dnrini? tlm Jnv ivn > nv>
negro women who were taken to l,il>
by, McNeil & Libby's plant, where
they will do scrub work in the plac:>
of the charwomen who went on strike.
A session of the Allied Trades held
Monday morning resulted in a <*oeision
to delay appealing to President
Roosevelt till all other resources have
been exhausted. The decision was
reached nn the ad vie .> of Homer D.
Call, who, as a republican, declared
he was averse to ? mbarrassing the
president at the present time or rill
other means had failed. There wis
much discussion on this subject, it is
said, seceral delegates declaring Mint
they did not care who was embarrassed
so long tin- stri! r? w.t brought
to a desirable termination.
"I don't think it right or advisable "
said Mr. Call, "to bring the president
into this fight at tlu- present time.
Ho has troubles enough and too mnv
people are trying to put a heavy burden
upon him than any hum on be'ns
ran carry It is not his fault ir.at
this striko was forced upon us. Mr.
Donnelly brought the resolution to mo
asking tho president to stop in, and I
have thought it over long and thoroughly,
but. i am convinced wo should
wait. Wo must be patient if ?e
would win."

A Washington special says: Tho
state department is in telegraphic
communication with its agencies
abroad respecting the Russian seizures
and destruction of 'American
goods, !?ut it is not yet ready to define
precisely its position as to the whole
subject of seizures. Those exchanges
are not confined to St. Petersburg and
Washington, but are intended to develop
the purpose of the governmants
of other nations, and particularly of
Great Britain an I Uenmuiy. whoso
shipping has suffered more th .n that
of any < User. The loss of a part of a
cargo is in point of int trnationsl law
j:'i issue of less magnitude than the dos-truction
of a ship, and so far the
British and Germans have lost their
cargo. This fact is believed to justify
the state department in proceeding
