regard to artillery is not definitely i
known, though throughout the war the
Japanese have shown great preference !
for this arm and great skill in its use.
Reports from the front credit the
Japanese with having 1.200 guns and j
many mountain batteries, and it is '
known that they recently shipped 1
twenty-four heavy guns to Yinkow.
General Kuropatkin, in addition 10
his field batteries, has a number of
very heavy guns emplaced at ini|>or- '
tant positions at l.iau-Yang, where the
Russians have been strongly fortifying |
for some time.
An Associated Press dispatch from
Liao-Yang, under date oi August 30, is
as tollows:
What appears to be the deciding
battle began at 4 a. m. Since then
the artillery has been thundering and
rifle fire has been rolling incessantly.
The encircling heights resemble fire
eirdtcing mounta-inr, The Japanese
began Hie attack east Of Liao-Yang
along the Taltse river, hut were rc
pulsed.
The firing is now specially heavy
south and southwest of Liao-Yang.
One can no longer distinguish individual
detonations. The Wyborg regiment,
of which Emperor William II ia
honorary chief, is deploying upon the
battle field. The Russian army is full
of confidence.
The total strength of tho com hatants
engaged is estimate 1 at over half
a million men. The battle probably
will continue for several days.
10 a. m.?From 5 o'clock this morning
up to !> o'clock there has been an
incessant shower of shrapnel. Tho
sound of cannonading is coming from
the south, where the Japanese evidently
have numerous guns. Deadly
shells are bursting ev ywhere, their
white smoke being distinctly traceable
against the dark foliage on the mountain
sides. The Japanese arc searching
the whole country side with their
fire, selecting certain squares of territory
on which for a few moments
they mass a hail of shot and shell
from all their gnr.s, thus working Mho
whole Held, with mathematical precision,
from right to left, in this way
the entire Russian front has been systematically
searched in the first hours
of the cannonading. Then commenced
the general Japanese advance along
the whole line. At this hour. 10 a. m .
the Japanese artillery flro has somewhat
slackened, but their infantry is
Bteadilj pushing forward.
The Russians have b en holding
their ground gallantly and their
If-*- k are small considering the terrible
nature of the Jajxinese fire.
The main Japanese attack is being
directed against the Russian center
and right, where the Russian loase3
have been the heaviest.
The Japanese ponied numerous artillery
within rnnge of all the Russian
|K)8iiions during the night. A hoi. flr?
was opened at f> a. in., an i by 9
o'clock the Japanase wero clot to the
Hiifsian positions.

PLAN MURDER AND ARSON
"Before Day" Club Unearthed In Ala
bama and Five Members Languish
in Opclika Jail.
A special from Opelika, Ala., says:
Monday morning at 1 o'clock there
were brought to this eitv and lodsiud
in the county jail live negroes, bupposed
to be memo*.is of a "Before
Lay * ciub, and implicated in an attempt
to murder a family living a few
miles from this city, near Chewaeta
postotfice, ami there is great excitement
in the neighborhood of the capture
and the attempt at. the crime.
The capture was made through the
contession of two members of the
gang, secured after persistent effort on
1 the part of the citizens of the neigh
I borhood. The two numbers s.ato tnat
; the negroes of the community had organized
for the purpose of murdering,
robbing and burning, aud the firsi
family to receive tins treatment at
their hands was to have been Mrs.
.Maggie 1'lott and her three children,
residing on a plantation near Chewa*
fl
A negro by the name of John Cook
was to kill Mrs. Plott and her daughter,
Miss Pearl Plott, aged about eighteen
years. Another member of tlio
band was to kill her two sons, Jim,
aged 15, and Riley, nged 12. The
house was then to be plundered, kerosene
poured upon it, and the bodies
of the murdered members of the family,
and the whole then burned.
The attempt to carry out the plot
was made on Sunday evening, August
7, Cook working at the window of
Pearl Piott's room, and another working
underneath the house. Cook had
succeeded in prying open the shutter,
which barred the window, but Pearl
was awakened by the noise, and call*
ed her brother. He arrived in the
room just as the negro was in thu
act of climbing in at the window, and
ho hastily fire# his gun at him, missing
him, but frightened him and the
accomplice away.
The affair was kept as quiet as possible,
except that the citizens of the
neighborhood began at once a systematic
inquiry into the matter, with the
hope of ultimately securing some clew
to the negroes and effecting their arrest.
Aiier auout a weeK's labors, a con- |
fession was secured from two of the
members of the gang;, and Sunday five
of them were taken into custody?John
Cook, Homer Peterson and Ella
Peterson being taken at Chewaela;
Nancy Mangrum In Beat 7. and Fletcher
Dawson was found in Opellka.
COUNTY APPROVES LYNCHING.
Citizens of Bulloch Say Cantain Hiich
and Troops Acted Wisely.
\V. B. Moore, auditor of the Savannah
and Statesboro railroad, says*
practically all of the people of Bulloch
county approve of the recent
lynching, except a few lawyers and !
preachers.
Mr. Moore will go on the ?ta:id at |
Statesboro before the court of inquiry j
and testify about the recent lynching, j
lie says that the general opinion ;
around Statesboro is that Captain
Hitch, in ordering the military not
to fire .acted wisely and bravely.
Mr. Moore says that there were over
1!00 Winchesters in town, and pickets
bad been stationed in ihe second sto- |
rics. Had a shot been fired by one of j
the military, Mr. Moore says his candid
opinion is that not a live soldier
would have been left.
Interspersed "through the mob were
some preachers \nd beH nconle <>f
Statesboro, who wore trying to get tho;
crowd to desist from th'lr detenni j
tion. To havo 11 r?*cl into such a crowd
would have been to kill innocent people.
The people of Bulloch are a unit
iri upholding the lynching, says Mr.
.Moore. The people no: only indor.-?
Captain Mitch, but would give h'.m a
sword if h< would accept it. Tney
have even discussed this, but know !
that Captain Hitch would not take'
such a testimonial at this time.
Mr. Moore said that it was a mistake
about labor leaving Bulloch since
tho lynching.

"I came to tell Judge Parker that
