JAPANESE MASS TROOPS. Large Reinforcements ported — Big Guns in Daily Action. [ Mr.uk.de:.. Oct. 31.— The movem 'its of the Jap bumm central army, which row onversres at a j-.o!nt where the plain meets the hills, have at tained the greatest importance. These move ments are being fully met by the Russians, so * that the situation at this point of the pros pective battlefield Is now one ol the greatest r Interest and apprehension. The Japanese have crossed the Shakhe to the southeast, and big ins were heard In that direction all last night. T'utiloff (Lone Tree) Hill has been bombarded by the Japanese from an early hour this morn ingr, and their troops are also being massed on the eastward. Th* central trenches on both sices - re crowded v'th troops, and at many places the Japanese Bn4 Russians are within hailing distance. At the isolated hill of Manalon, in the pain where the Russians ten days ago captured fourteen ff^ne and bayoneted 800 Japanese, the riva forces are only 800 paces apart The two ar ies. each with the other as an objective, are i proa-h 1 c. while hurriedly cor.Btrurtin? «le* works, each morning revealing the work done j^er night tr> the obsfrvat'.or stations on every hil'top.

The Japanese abandoned the pos ir.n Immediately after it was taken. This actio:i does rot ejual in importance the capture of Xanalon Hili.

SAMUEL JOHNSON'S PIONEER WORK. Tin- presidency was tendered to Samuel Johnson one of the most remarkable men of his time, and it was he who gave to the r.fcw college Its educa tional form, its controlling tendencies .uid its first deals. Open minded and catholic. Dr. John son was the most scholarly American of the period, and, with Jonathan Edwards, he takes rank ;>s on< of the two really powerful and constructive Amerl '■i!i hllosopbers of the eighteenth century. Ben jamln Franklin, who had b».-en his publisher, con sulted with htm as to the i lane for tli<: projected college at Philadelphia, and urged him to become Its head. Hut Johnson was more strongly drawn toward New-York, in whose projects for a col lege he had long been an ■•■■ counsellor. ;md for which his friend and philosophical preceptor, Bishop Berkeley, had fed the flame of his «t. t!:ij«la«m. Dr. Johnson, sol" lecturer, began in struction In th* month of July, 17.".4, some lime be fore the charter was granted, in the vestry room of the Bchoolhouse adjoining Trinity Church, of which the temporary use hn«l been allowed him. It is rally true that for a full century the college had to struggle for its life. The amount mlsed by lottery. Increased Bomewhat by .-inrill legislative grants, appears to have been spent upon tie fir!»t building and in the purchase of. those ma terials that jrere necessary to the institution's V.ork. The portion Of the Kind's 1 Farm sra:ited by Trinity church was valued at £4.000 or £5.000. but it lay beyond the limits of the Inhabited portion of tiio Island, and was for many years unpro ductive. It did. however, afford a commodious an.i convenient home for the college. Finally, In 1814, came the action which, through the urage .■■■ i farsightedness of the trustees, has meant (so much to us. Upon v petition of the trusteeß «elllne forth that the extensive lands grunted by earlier governors had been lost to the college, without compensation, in the settlement of the boundary dispute, the legislature granted to the college the so-called Hosack Botanic Garden, rmpri.*-: the land In the city of New-York now bounded by Fifth -aye. on the east, \>y rty-sev 'nth-st. on the south, by Flfty-flrat-st. on the north. «nd by a line distant about 100 feet from the • »«t«-r!y lino of ith-ave. on the west, 260 city lots all. then valued at (75,000.

HAS NOT EXTORTED CAMPAIGN CONTRIBUTIONS FROM CORPORATIONS. No Pledges of Any Kind (then by President or Chairman — National Committee Has Unusually Small Fund. [PROM THE TRIBUNE BUREAU.] Washington, Oct. 31. -The total campaign ; ;:.■! at the disposal of the Republican National ittee this year Is considerably less than half what it amounted to fou-.- years ago and less than a third of the total of eight years ago, ssurances of a great Republican victory continue to reach Washington from every part of the country. That success will b the most gratifying clrcumstai by the fact that not. a single pledge ol any sort or description has been given by Chairman Cortelyou or any one authorized to represent him to any individual, corporation or interest. This assurance, given to the President, and ro ported In these dispatches several weeks ago, was reiterated by the national chairman on the n of his last visit to Washington on Fri day. Naturally, great industrial enterprises I ruin In tl Democratic administration, and others, whan ?ee that an administration of the nations af fairs by the party which formally declares that •■protection is robbery" would force them into bankruptcy, have contributed to the Republican campaign fund. Bo have certain labor organ izations whose members have vivid recollections of having been thrown out of work and forced to resort to "soup kitchens" in the Cleveland administration. Some cor] I have contributed to both campaign funds, as la their habit; and still others, which, having failed In their eff« L tion >t the Bur< »i pora . to make the government contributor; to partlculai style of advertising, or to merge th. ir competing lines of railways, have ely to the Democratic cam paign fund. Anj one who denies that the cor porations and the men who make them up have contributed to the campaign funds of both parties exhibits a total lack of familiarity with nt-day conditions. The demand of certain Democrats that the names of the contributors to their campaign fund be made public is, however Pharisaical B thing never has been done and never will be done. It would be regarded as a viola tion of confidence, and might injure the busi ness interests of the contributors, especiallj _ K ed m retail trade where the compe tition is severe. So puerile an.i so manifestly insincere have O n Chairman Cortelyou by thoße who represent him as having -held up" the corporations that no attention will be paid No statement will be made -tther by Mr Cortelyou or by the administration. Those . and who would like to know HE KILLED A REVELLER. Well Known Jerseyman Fired Shot to Scare Halloween Crowd. Westfleld. N. J. Oct. Si-Shooting to scare away Halloween merrymakers, Harold M.

President Roosevelt will take the oath of office on March 4 without being bound by a single obligation other than that contained in the oath itself. N >T SELLING FAVoRS. A man who knows all that occurred at Mr. Cortelyou'B last call on the President said to day: While Mr. Cortelyou was at the White House he told Hie President of the attempt made by a ire a promise of favoritism after The flection. The man who approached him offered his check with the remark: "We, of course will expect kind treatment at the hands of the' administration this winter." or words to that effect. Mr. Cortelyou told the man to keep his contribution, as the Republican National committee was not receiving money in exchange for guarantees of future f.ivorn. -;-,<• ; thai another gr< angered at Us inability to influence th..- Presi dent ln a direction contrary to his conception of duty has made no contribution to the Republi can" campaign fund has already been published. To answer the attacks made em Mr. Cortel you since the campaign began would be dignify ing the libellers too much. It may be said in his ■ ■ if he needs any. that he has not re ceived a cent from any source with the under standing that the contributor was t.» be favored rislation or otherwise for the money ad vanced. Not a single promise has he made to any in dividual, corporation, influence or to-called "trust" that has in the slightest manner pledged the President or the administration to any form of action after the election. The hypocrisy of this Democratic hue and cry at the close ol the cleanest campaign in memory. f> far as the Republican side of it is concerned, is Intended to diveri attention from the influ that "buncoed'" the St. Louis convention Into nominating Parker and to becloud tl issues before the people. Everybody knows good, substantial reason* why the • people who contribute national rampalgn • want the publicity which will make . ts hereafter for Tammany and sim ilar blackmailing enterprises.

To put It plainly, Judge Parker has been dropped by fome of the most Influential men that at first supported him. Some of the "conservative" Influences that were behind his nomination have decided that he is unsafe, weak, uninformed and generally unfit for the position of President of the TTnited States. They fee that he has no control over the radical elements in his own p.irty, and. rather than helD such -x candidate, have w!th- Irawn their support.

Negotiations on with England and to Begin tcith France. Washington, Oct. 31. — W. Brans Darby, secretary of the Pea/v Society of London, pre sented to President Roosevelt to-day a memorial from the society urging that a treaty of arbitra tion be negotiated between the United States and *>reat Britain. The President Informed Dr. Darby that he was in entire sympathy with the movement and that negotiations for such a treaty now were In progress. France and the United States expect to begin the negotiation of an arbitration treaty soon. The treaty will be known as the Hay-Jusserand arbitration treaty, and. according to th-? present programme, will closely follow the llm i of the Anglo-French treaty. Some time a^ro th* French •merit, through its "Ambassador at Wash ington, Informed Secretary Hay that France was ready and willing to conclude such a < orven tlon whenever It was the pleasure of the I'r.itt- 1 States. Mr. Hay expressed thanks for this re newed evidence of friendship on the part of the }■':■••: republic, and Intimated a desire to open negotiations on. Widespread ititer^st has been aroused through out the diplomatic corps by the announcement of Secretary Hay in his recent speech at New- York that the government hoped soon to begin the preparation of arbitration treaties with all countries willing to sicri them. "Hier- is already 'Ctdent among European diplomats a keen de sire to take the lead in this movement. It is pointed out that, while few Questions of importance lire pending between this country and Prance, the negotiation of ar, arbitration treaty at a time when the diplomatic horizon 13 so clear will insure an early conclusion of the convention. It is believed that Italy will be found favorable to the negotiation of an arbitra tion treaty with this country. AIRSHIP FLIES WELL. Machine Circles and Returns Against the Wind at St. Louis.
