CHEFOO, August 11. The Russian battleships Pobieda and Retvizan have
re-entered Port Arthur after the engagement with the Japanese fleet. The
sally of the Russian fleet means that the situation at Port Arthur is desper
ate. It is supposed that the sally of the Vladivostok fleet was for the pur
pose of seeking the Port Arthur fleet and combining forces.
TOKIO, August 11. It is reported that Admiral Togo's fleet frustrated the
Russian attempt to escape from Port Arthur. The fighting between the
Japanese and Russian fleets continued until sunset on Wednesday.
The Japanese torpedo flotilla attacked the Russian fleet during the night

To Japanese Consul, Honolulu:
Various reports from Talienwau show that the Russian Port Arthur squad
ron emerged from the port on the morning of August 10th and a severe
naval battle ensued till sunset. During the night of the same day our
destroyer flotilla seemed to have attacked the enemy squadron. At dawn
of August 1 1 th the Retvizan and another battleship of the Pobieda type ap
peared to be taking flight towards Port Arthur. TAKAHIRA.
The new Republican district committees or conventions meet tomorrow
evening for organization, in both districts' plans are already shaping them
selves quite definitely and the work of the Territorial convention is also
being considerably foreshadowed, as far as Oahu is concerned, in prelimin
ary discussions. Yesterday A. G. M. Robertson, who has delayed stating
position as to the chairmanship of the Territorial central committee,
stated definitely that he would be a candidate for the position. There was
considerable talk of Representative W. W. Harris for chairman, but he will
not be a candidate, it is stated, against Robertson, who is almost assured
The Fourth District committee is to meet at 7:30 p. m. in Waverley hall.
iW. W. Harris or Attorney General Lorrin Andrews is likely to be chosen for
chairman. Andrews is understood to be a candidate and Harris has been
discussed and approached on the subject, with the result that he will prob
ably be up for the chairmanship. Attorney Frank E. Thompson has also
been mentioned, as well as Samuel Johnson, and there may be several men
to vote for.
The Fourth District is going for Cupid without any practical opposition,
though there are some kickers against the programme. In the matter of the
legislative nominations, most of the members of the last legislature appear
to want renominations. Senator Cecil Brown is expected to run again, but
Crabbc will retire. The nomination will very likely be offered to Mark P.
Robinson if he agrees to run. Representatives Chillingworth and Harris are
also talked of for the upper house.
Andrade, Harris, Aylett, Long and Chillingworth, if he does not go after a
scnatorship, are all understood to desire re-election as members of the House.
Bipikane also wants to run for the House, and will be out for a nomination.
In the Fifth District there is considerable talk of Judge Kaulukou for
chairman of the district committee, though a meeting in the Seventh last
night unanimously endorsed H. C. Vida. Vida is believed to have much
strength among the delegates. In this district there are legislative candi-

No word of tho result of the three

If Judge Parker does not win election day it will not be for lack of money.
The Democratic campaign fund will exceed $4,000,000, not counting any
contributions from the multi-millionaire vice-presidential candidate, wh

Those who visited the capitol this afternoon could not have failed to be
struck with the nervousness displayed in every branch of the government
service. Hands that can generally be trusted to the production of faultless
text trembled as they made their entries in the ponderous tomes of Hawaii
and faces ordinarily brown with the kisses of an ardent sun were absolutely
Honolulu is face to face with a crisis and news of this had spread through
the building, for it is more than probable that Governor Carter will be re
ceived without any salute when he arrives on the China tomo.row. There
is not enough powder in Honolulu for a salute and reverberations of welcome
which Acting Governor Atkinson had hoped to have set rolling from Punch
bowl to Diamond Head will find no record in history.
"But what about the regulars?" was asked. "Why don't they 'fir; a
salute?" And thereby hangs a tale.
Application was made to Admiral Terry for a salute, but it seems that
cold-hearted regulations decree that Governor Carter has been saluted suffi
ciently. Personally Admiral Terry would be delighted to fire a salute to the
governor twice or three times a day, but the regulations provide that he shall
only have government powder burned for him once a year, and he has
already had this honor once.
"Oh, very well," said the Acting Governor. "Summon the commander of
There was a clatter of spurs and swords and things in the outer hall and
Colonel Jones dashed in.
The colonel turned pale when he was told what was required of him.
"Nothing doing in the salute line," he said. "The dove hunters have used
up all the powder in town."
"Get the guns out along the wharf and then set of sticks of dynamite,"
said a tactician. "Governor Carter will hear the noise and he'll see the guns.
He'll never know the difference."
At a late hour this afternoon the town was being scoured for dynamite.
