RUSSIANS WILL FIGHT WHEN
AWAY FROM COAST
Czar's Generals Will Not Give Japanese Un
til the Latter Reach the Interior
Out of Reach ot Ships
[Special Dispatch to Daily Alaskan ]
Tinstin, April 20. ? Russian officials
have given out the statement that a
part of Russia's plans are to draw the
Japanese armies into the interior of
Manchuria before giving fight. They
say that to fight the Japanese on the
coast where they would have the ad
vantage of communicating with their ;
base of supplies would give that nation j
the best of the argument and it is not ^
a part of the Russian plans to do that.
Once in the interior the two armies
would be on an equal footing, as far as
aid by sea is concerned, while the Rus
sian forces would have the benefit of an
established railway to the rear.

PARKER OtIS m YORK
[Special Dispatch to Daily Alaskan ] i
New York. April 20 ? ' The demooratic J
state convention which completed its
labors last night, instructed the delega- \
tion from the Empire state to the na
tional convention to support Judge
Alton B Parker, for the democratic :
presidential nomination. There was '
no fight over the matter at all. The
convention was harmonious, each of the
three factions being represented on the
delegation.
The actioo of the democratic conven
tion at Albany is believed to practically
insure the nomination of Judge Parker
by the democrats. It is believed that
he will receive the support of all the
conservative democrats in the country,
aside from a few votes in the New Eng
land states, which will be given to
Richard Olney on the first ballot.
All factions of the New York demo
cratic party, including Tammany, are
pleased with the result of the state con
vention.
Owing to the Unprecedented Demand
for gage fiats
