Big Rattle Expected at Tie Pass—
Shelling Port Arthur.
According to dispatches from Mouk
drn, the Japanese preparations for an ad
vance arc continuing. General Kuroki is
going eas\ and one hundred large barges
are being gathered to send a force to Tie
Pass. The preparation* are expected to
take a month, and another big battle is
not looked for until Tie Pass is occupied.
Admiral Alexieft reports that British
and Japanese schooners and steamers
joined in n siege of the v/oinmaimer
Islands. The Japanese proclaimed a pro
tectorate over Kamchatka.
General Stoestel reports continued Jap
anese activity in front of Port Arthur.
The Japanese have issued a proclamation
calling on the Russian soldiers at Port
Arthur to surrender.
The Japanese Gathering Troops at
Moukden. Sept. 15 (delayed*— According to
Chinese advices the evacuation of I Yang by
th« Japanese has been forced, owing to the fear
ful stench arising from dead bodies.
Trie Japanese were to-day fortifying the ap
proaches by the river. Small detachments of
Japanese moved northward from the Tai-Tse
River, rat ions for an advance evidently
still continuing, though' the second stage of the
Japanese movement has not yet been completed
by any means. The first was to the north. aa
though for a turning movement, but General
Kuroki is now going east, while to the west
preparations are being made to send a large
force up the I,iso River. For this purpose the
Japanese already have taken one hundred large
barges, with which they intend to ascend as far
as He Pass.
It is stated that the Japanese are carefully
preparing their turning and flanking movements,
and will not engage In another big battle before
the occupation of Tie Pass. These preparations
are expected to occupy one month.
Stirring incidents at the battle of LJao-Yang
are the sole topics among the officers and sol
diers here. Heroic feats are recounted and the
desperate nature of the Japanese charges south
«>f Llao-Yang and their incredible advance, re
peatedly over the dead bodies of their comrades,
are constantly alluded to. The Russians also
made several bayonet charges, among the most
brilliant being that of the Morshansk regiment,
headed by its wounded colonel.
The youthfulness of the Japanese soldiers sur
prised the Russian!". Some of them are not more
than eighteen years old. The reports that the
Jax>a.nese bsAatered up their courage with intox
icants are classed as nonsense, the best evidence
to the contrary being the remarkable endurance
they displayed.

Russia Not Disposed to Criticise the
United States.
><t Petersburg. Sept. 15.— The decision to dis
arm the Russian erutasr Lena, no« at San
Francisco, and to keep her there until the end
of the war. was the result of the communica
tion from Captain Berlinsky, commander of the
vessel, reporting that she required extensive
repairs, and that it would be difficult to make
them in the period allowed by the V
authorities. The fact, however, that there i?
little disposition to criticise the decision of
th<- United States shows that the Admiralty
was not reluctant, after receiving the captain's
report, to acquiesce In the disarmament.

Arrangements Made for Dismantling
the Lena.
■ |rt ituwura to the tribcnk.)
San Francisco, Sept. I.l.— Admiral Goodrich re
ceived orders this afternoon to have the Russian
cruiser Lena taken to Mare Island and dis
mantled. All her ammunition and the breech
plugs of her guns will be landed, thus making
her harmless. Such repairs as are necessary to
keep her in condition may be permitted, but nc
addition to her military force will be allowed.
Owing to imports that Russian cruisers w«-re off
the coast, lying in wait for merchantmen,' Ad
miral Goodrich sent the cruiser Boston to sea
this morning, partly to give the recently re
paired machinery a test and partly to determine
whether there are any Russian or Japanese
cruisers in the offing. The Boston proceeded
■rest of the Farallonea for fifty miles, keeping In
touch with the flagship New -York by wireless
telegraphy, but up to a late hour nothing bus
piclous had been sighted. The Boston will re
turn to port in the morning, and to-morrow she
and the Bennlngton will sail for Magdalena Bay
for target practice. The New-York and the
MarbJehead will remain here Indefinitely, as the
Navy Department has been aroused to th« neces
sity of keeping war vessels at this port, if the
Lena had arrived later no American warship
would have been here, and there would have
been no way of enforcing the government's or
All ordinary courtesies have been exchanged
between the Lena's officers and those of th •
American squadron. This evening the ward
room officers of the Lena were entertained at
dinner on board the New-York by the flagship's
wardroom officers.
Captain Berlinsk) left his vessel to-day on
his steam launch, and went down the bay past
the Benninafon, to visit Admiral Goodrich on
the New-York. The captain was Informed of
the President's decision to allow the Lena to
remain here on condition that she would send
her puns ■shore. He, li» turn, communicated to
the admiral hit own government's willingness
to comply with tin conditions, and final ar
rangements were made to have the Lena go to
Mare Island.
Th» crew are confident that the) will be
permitted to return to Russia by way of New-
York. The officers have purchased civilian
dress In anticipation of th»« journey. Strict
guard is kept on the ship, and all boats going
to or coming from her must report to th* of
ficer on the deck of th» torpedo boat destroyer
Paul Jones. Even the Lena's own launches are
not permitted to pass without this formality.
Insurance rates hart are still high, and ship
ping men ar« uneasy. The) «<ay that the mys
tery of the Lena's visit has not been explained,

armed auxiliary vessel Korea In the Pacific off
the northern coast of Vancouver Island, steam

Fanner Seems More Likely West
chester Congress Candidate.
Although the convention has not been called ,
to nominate ■ Republican candidate to ■•■'■'
Congressman Norton P. Otis, of the Westchester
district, it was said yesterday on good authority j
that the nomination is almost sure to p<> to
John E. Andrus, Mayor of Y/onkers. .Most of (
the Republican leaders of the county are now j
at Saratoga, and the convention will be railed
soon after their return. Mayor Andru and As
semblyman J. Mayhev WalnWrlght. of Rye. are
now looked upon as the favorites In the n
while John J. Brown, of White I'lains; F. A.
Btratton and William ■ her, of Mount Ver
non. and Colonel Franklin Q. Brown, of Dobbs
Ferry, are mentioned as outside* chances. The
leaders of the party seem to favor the Vonkere
Mayor for the nomination, but Assemblyman
Wainwrfghl has many supporters, among them
Senator Carpenter. Surrogate Theodore Silk
man. John C. Ten Eyck, and others \
The demand for the nomination of Mr. Andrus
comes principally from Yonkers. A leading
Republican of that city said yesterday:

The talk or nominating Assemblyman Waiu-
Aright for Congress, began soon after ;t be
came known that Congressman Otis would not
„.. a candidate to succeed himself. Mr. Wain
wright was at thai time in Europe, and since
his return he has been with his regiment, the
12th New-York. of which he is lieutenant
colonel, at the Bull Run mari'Euvres, which has
left him little time to consider the Congress
BituatlOD. His attitude Is said to be that h,
would accept the nomination, but thai he does
not want It. unless it la given to him as th»
combined wiadom of the party leaders. Mr.
Wainwrlght's friends say that he deserves the
nomination for Congress, because on two occa
sions, when the Republican party was In des
perate ....... I of a candidate for Assembly In the
lid Westchester District, he sacrificed his
business int. vests and stepped In and carried
the district by majorities ranging from six hun
dred to eight hundred.
Last year he declined to i in, as he found
that he bad so much pressing business which
required his attention. The Assembly conven
lion was forced to meet and adjourn without a
candidate Realizing that Mr. Wainwright's
splendid record In the Legislature made him the |
strongest candidate that could be named, the j
party leaders appealed to him to withdraw his i
declination. Thin Assemblyman Walnwrlght !
consented to '!". and rather than •-•-• the party
face the danger of defeat hi made the race at
a considerable personal sacrifice, In the flee- !
tion which followed, Mr. Wainwright carried
the district by nearly seven hundred majority,
and the canvass he made lent strength to the |
entire ticket. Mr. Wainwright's friends fee!
that. in view of the work that he nan done for
his part) and his district. If hi wauls the Con
gress nomination he should have it.
Mr. Wainwright represents the wing of the
Republican parly which came over from the
Democracy in is 1 ."!, when it could not swallow
Bryan and his silver platform. Since his entry
Into politic* he ha." made rapid .stride.";, having
i.t-r-n elected to the as. •■:::'.. from a district
which was regarded as Democratic, three times
In succession, by majorities ranging from seven
hundred to thirteen hundred. Mr. Wain Wright's

In many respects the most Important in Wesi
chester County, Ii contains in.- city of \.-.-.-
Rochelle. the large villages of White Plains
Port Chester and Tarrytown, and also :i i.art of
the Annexed District in The Bronx:
As a legislator Mr. Walnwright has mad- a
clean record, In his three, terms h<- !ias to his
credit the passage of more bills than any other
member of the legislature, His most Important
effort is regarded as lha bill calling for the sub
stitution „f electricity hi the Park-ay.-. tunnel
in the place of -steam. Mr. Waimvrighl intro
duced this bill Immediately after the disaster In
tin- -York Central tunnel on January N, line;

benefit to ail tlie resfdonta or his county md
others who tiav . on the -V ■ -Yoi 1; Central and
New-York, New-Haven and Hartford rail

most ■ dial advocates of th? New-York uid
Port Chester Railroad; which proposed :t rapid
transit system for Wetttcbest r County and The
Bronx. Lust session he was chairman of the
Committee •■: Public Instruction, and as such
handled the Lewis- Wainwrisht Educational bill
which consolidates all the educational Institu

changes. He al^o introduced the Jerome bill

Congress. After having exhausted every effort

Kntes settle the contest among 1 themselves. This
I* also the feeling of many <>f the other prom
inent Republicans in tile county who are friendly
to all of those who have cen mentioned as po?<
sil.le nominees. The jreneral feeling among the
Republicans is that the party has seldom had
such an array of deserving timber from which
to select a candidate. Th- district, since it has
(been cut off from The Bronx, is Republican by
at hast a thousand, and it is conceded on all
sides that any Republican who is nominated
this year will carry it by .1 much larger majority.

South Orange. N. J., Sept 15 (Special*.— Mr. and
Mrs. Elliot W. Johnson, of No. 4* Kinsman Road.
South Orange, have J:i»t returned from an auto
mobile trip through the New-England 3tatom -;<>
ing away to the northern part of Maine, where,
according to accounts, they met wits 5. .mc strange
and novel experiences. The entire trip was made
iti a lixht gasolene runabout.
In Maine they passed through territory which
had never before been vlalt<»d by aUtomobQlSt*.
Tbc natives had heard of motor cars In stories re
lated by neighbors arid through newspapers, but
they had never seen on* and wert* In mortal fear
of the machine at first. Mr. Johnnon ar.d his wife
enloved the sensation they made, but when the
residents refused to shelter either th» automobile
or the tourists themselves It ceased to b«? a iok<*.
Mr. Johnson says the i pie of Northern Maine
were hOSDltable. honest anil intelligent, but the
automobile* were something they could not un«!'-r-
Stand. and. haviiiK heard sui h dreadful stor!ei
aho> ; them. they were afraid (of iheir lives.
It was almost tmpo».<*iblft to obtain the i-onsent •'*
(he farmers to run the car Into their burns for ihw
niKht, .ii. ins machine had to b* sheltered i:n'i>-r
sheds or wherever » place for It could be found.
This would r.ot have heeu so bad, bat the dwellers
in theye rural regions seemed to think there was
som» connection between th" man and hi* ear,
and that it' th« car exploded the man would, too.
They tltd nol want to shelter »-v.-i! Mrs Johnson.
This was carried to su.-rf an extent, said Mr. John
son, ihnt th< ir approach to a villaße would be
heralded long fora their arrival, and when they
reached the place they would tlrid every one Kor~.
even fh» hotel keeper. All were afraid of Ihem
and would literally taki' ti> th« woods to escape
harm. In several Instances. Mr. Johnson had t>>
make known that he was a Fre«» Mason, to obtain
hotel accommodations.
At one place th« tourists lo.it th'ir way and
Stopped at a house to make ln.jiiiries. They had
no sooner drawn up near the gate ttian a little
boy within net up a g.-eat howl. Asked what « is
the tatter with tbe hoy the mother auswue.!.
