DEADLOCK IN MANCHURIA PORT ARTHUR HOLDS OUT. Northern Armies Exchange Shots- Hope of Peace Seems Small. No confirmation of thr rumors of Port Arthur's fall was received, and the deadlock in Northern Manchuria continues, with the usual skirmishes and intermittent artillery practice. The Japanr.se often fail to reply to the Russian guns. The defensive positions of Marshal Oyama's army are said to be ex tremely strong. The hopes that some means may be found to bring to an end hostilities in the Far East receive slight support. Advices from Paris csv that France is extremely desirous to do nothing which would impair her alliancg with Russia, and dispatches from St. Petersburg do not foster the idea that terms would be welcomed. OYAMA'S LINES STRONG. Intrenchments Skilfully Constructed — Cossacks' Successes. Moukden. Nov. 11.— The positions of the annlee or. both sides remain unchanged, though there i« continual skirmishing going on. with the object of securing minor positions tending to strengthen the respective lines of defence. The Russian ecouts are da-ing, secretly reoonnoi trlng the whole of the Japanese lines, some even creeping up to the Japanese trenches, lying concealed there all day and returning at night. Tbe Japanese aave constructed in many places ieobie and even triple and quadruple lines of breaches. •»!*• entanglements, mines and -pit*. A Cospack patrol on November 10 penetrated as far a** Sandiapu. where they inflicted a blow against a large force of Japanese, and then re turned rapidly to the Russian main line with out loss.

The Cossacks defeated the Japanese ■ad returned SSXety to the Russian lines There was a heavy exchange of artillery fire yesterday at the Russian right centre. The Russian batteries began shelling the Japanese trenches Bfid the Japanese batteries responded. Last r.icht Russian volunteers dislodged a de tachment of Japanese Infantry from trenches In front of Lon< Tree Hill. The Japanese continue to show activity on the left flask, without engaging in any serious move ment.

EX-PRESIDENT SPEAKS. Cornerstone of Hebrew Technical School Placed. Additional interest was given to the laying of the cornerstone of the new building of the He brew Technical School for Girls, at Second-aye. and Fifteenth-et., yesterday, by the presence of the only living ox-President of the United States, Grover Clrveland. Attracted by the an nouncement in the press that Mr. Cleveland ■would not only preside, but would make an ad dress, a large crowd gathered in Second-aye. and gave Mr. and Mrs. Cleveland a cordial wel come as they drove up with Mr. and Mrs. Na thaniel Myers. Within the tent the expectation seemed to be general that Mr. Cleveland would "say something." but he steered clear of the re motest reference to politics, confining himself ptrlctly to the general significance of the occa sion. A large- canvas tent had been stretched over the cite of the new building and fitted up with a temporary wooden floor and platform. Strings of email flags inside and out gave it something of the festive air of a country fair, and a high board fence which had been erected all around as a screen from the street was profusely draped with large American flags. A large squad of policemen was stationed around the inclosure to keep away the curious. Long before the exer cises began people were blowing on their fingere and tucking their hands inside their coats for warmth's sake. The opening prayer was by the Rev. Dr. Joseph Sllverman. A chorus of about two hun dred girls from the old school in Henry-st. sang "America." Then Mr. Myers introduced Mr. Cleveland as "that great statesman who, when long and eorely tried, showed that in lofty, in single minded and in all wise devotion to the welfare of his country, he was as pure and clear and direct as the sun's rays, and as immovable as the North Star." Mr. Cleveland, after pro longed applause, began to read his speech. MR. CLEVELAND'S ADDRESS In part he eaid: It is not altogether a fanciful or pessimistic notion that leads many of our patriotic and sin cere citizens to lament the growth among us 0/ materialism. Our people are undoubtedly becom ing more and more infected with the feverish de siiti to accumulate wealth and to succeed in under takings far removed from : alianthroplc Intentions; but no one can yet say that in the midst of ail this there does not remain to us charity for the poor, pity for the eick or wound* £ and a helping hand far those who need aid in the improvement of their present conditions -md future prospects. We who are here have befor-. us at this moment convincing proof that those, ennobling traits of our natural disposition have not been entirely smothered in a heedless rush for rich"?. Thought ful men muet also regretlully concede that even in the best and highest civilization, movements called charitable and benevolent are sometimes used to cloak self-exploitat;on and purse proud vanity, or are set on foot to satisfy the whims and caprice of the restless rich. are face to fa<*e to-day with a philanthropic enterprise wboße intent and purpose are abso lutely free from the slightest questionable adultera tion which has been most intelligently conceived. most effectively managed and most steadfastly di rected toward "the accomplishment of its supremely important mission. PRESIDENT BUTLER'S REMARKS. -President Cleveland was followed by Presi dent Nicholas Murray Eutler of Columbia Uni versity, who wore a skullcap and dug his hands deep Into his overcoat pockets during his speech in the effort to keep warm. Dr. Butler began by saying that the rise of such Institu tions as this marked the advent of a new idea into education, adding, "not that we wish to discredit the older learning, but because out of the great material resources and development of the country a need has arisen for a train ing that shall bear directly on life. An 1 we are no longer ashamed to apply the term 'edu cation" 10 such training. ' Dr. Henry M. Leiyziger, director of public lectures in the public schools, spoke next. • A distinguishing mark 01 modern education," he said, "is its application of scientific princi ples to lines formerly overlooked. We have to day trade schools, business colleges, commercial colleges. Education now fits for life, not for examinations." (Applause.) The presentation of a silver trowel to Mrs. Cleveland hy Adolph Lewisohn, chairman of the building committee, was accompanied by a little address, in which Mrs. Cleveland was re ferred to as "foremost in all the charms and virtues that make woman admired and rever enced by man — the ideal of American woman hood." Mrs. Cleveland smiled at this euloglsra. She wore a tailor-made gown of dull green cloth, cut with a three-quarter, tight-fitting coat, a chinchilla collar and muff and a black toque with a white feather and green cockade on the side, and white glover. , A TROWEL FOP. MRS. CLEVELAND. The trowel was inscribed as follows;" "This trowel was used on November 11, 1904, for lay- Ing the cornerEtona of the Hebrew Technical School foi Girlr. New-York, and is presented to Mrs. Grover Cleveland by the trustees of the school <i& a souvenir of the occasion." Accompanies by Mrs. Minnie D Louis, who. with her husband, established the s ho ; . twenty years ago; Nathaniel Myers, Maurice Htrsch, Adolph Lewisohn and Maurice Brill, the au dience rising to their feet, Mrs. Cleveland mount ed to a Utths nag draped platform bull: around the cornerstone, which was swinging from a der 2-ick. She watched with Interest the manoeuvres of the workmen by which, after the copper box 01 records had been placed, the htig-e block was slowl) warped Into position o.i its neci of cement. Then, lightly tapping the top of the huge stono three times for luck with the handle of her trowel, and laughing, she gave the wet cement a little pat, saying, "i declare this stone well and truly la'.J." While two hundred girls from the old school were singing a Jubilee song, especially compose 1 for the occasion by Kmily M. Upper, everybody crowded around ex-President and Mrs. Cleve land, so that it was with some difficulty that Frances Speir, a young girl from the school, pushed her way up to Mrs. Cleveland and pre sented a copy Of the song, engrossed on white satin, by some of the pupils of the school. Th<» ltev. Dr. Maurice H. Harris closed the exer cises with the benediction. Mr. and Mrs. Myers later entertained Mr. and Mrs. Cleveland at luncheon at their home, in the Osborne. The Clevelands went afterward to attend the Yale-Princeton game. ** Among the prominent persons in the tent were Richa: v Watson Gilder, Dr. Joseph D. Bryant and St. ("lair McKelway, who came ex pressly to meet the Clevelands; [eidor Straus, lfnac Stern, Mrs. Louis Erich, Jacob H. SchlfiC and Professor Beligman. The new school will occupy a plot 125 by 07 feet, and will be five stories and a basement in height. When it is fully equipped the cost will he nearly $400,000. It will have an auditorium seating 500, a model kitchen, roof garden, swim ming pool, clubrooms, gymnasium, library and employment bureau, with large, light class rooms.

FOUR SINK WITH VESSEL MASTER AXD WIFE LOST. U. S. Refrigerator Ship Sinks Schooner Off Barnegat. On Wednesday night, ten miles off Barnegat Light, the United States refrigerator ship Culgoa rammed the schooner Wilson and Hunt ing, from Norfolk to New- York, and sunk her. Captain Robert I. Walton. Jr., of the schooner, hia wife and two seamen went down with the ship. The eurvivors. consisting- of the mate, steward and two seamen, arrived here on Thurs day night on the Culgoa, and were sent ashore yesterday at Tonapklnsville. The mon were taken to the offices of the lav.- firm of Alexander & Ash, at No. 9'_" Willlam-st., where they told the story of the accident. The steward said: I was In the galley when the schooner v.-as struck. We were holding '»'.ir course or. a port tack off shore. Shortly before i went below I saw the lamp on top <>f the cabin burning brightly. Thr- steamer came on us appar"iitly at full "speed, and struck us to starboard, af: of the forward rigging When I reached the deck I climbed up the rigging and got aboard the Culgoa, the bow of which was wedged well into the schooner. Soon after I got aboard the mate followed my plan of escape, but when he reached the rig ging the steamer reversed her engines and the boats swayed apart. The mate plunged into the sea and the Culgoa lowered a boat to get him. They threw him a line, which he fastened around his v.-aist. and dragged him Into the small boat. The schooner was laden with pil ing, stored on the deck Hghi fei-t high. Th^ captain and his wife were on deck, and cou!c r hnve been rescued had not the Culgou backed away. The instant the boats separated the schooner filled, her deck load shifted and she listed to starboard and sank, taking the captain and his wife with her. I paw our mate trying; to get a line to the captain as the steamer backed away. Several of the crew of the Culgoa told me that thej sav our lights. I understand that whe-r the Culgoa rammed us one of the men in the engine room was knocked down and seriously hurt. Captain Walton came from a seafaring family. He was Lorn thirty-five years ago at Tuckerton, N. J. His wife, Etta Walton, was the- daughter of a New-Jersey farmer, and for six years had sailed with her husband. On September 15, 1003, while Captain Walton was in command of the throe masted sch De Mory Gray, ho encountered a hurricane ten miles northeast of Winter Quarter Shoals. Us wife was with him at th* time and fearing for her safety Captain Walton lashed her to th< miz zen eross treea She remained there for one hour through a terrific storm that almost wrecked the vessel.

Before the fire had made any great h ■:, i.v.iy the bodies of the woman an,! her two children were rescued from the burning house. An examination <>f the bodies showed that Mrs. Weber and the children had been murdered before the fire had b?en started. Mrs. Weber and her daughter had been killed by pistol wounds. On tht* boy's head were several deep CUta. He had al?o been shot.

I TION The President's Announcement Re garding the Secretary of State. fFROM THE TSIB'NS BUREAU. 1 Washington, Nov. 11 —John Hay will be Sec retary of State throughout the term for which President Roosevelt has just been elected. This announcement was made to-day by the Presi dent, who regards the intention of Mr. Hay to retain the portfolio of State as promising much for the success of his next term. "You may state positively," ■w»re the Presi dent's words, "that Mr. Hay will continue as Secretary of State up to March 4, 190&. The President feels that Mr. Hay's decision is of the utmost importance, not alone to Ameri cans, but to the nations of the world. For some years Mr. Hay has been one of the most prom inent figures. if not the most prominent, in the diplomatic world, and his efforts have always been directed toward universal peace, in which cause he has already accomplished much. To the United States, and in a measure to other nations, the advantages which must ac crue from the continuous maintenance by the United States of the same wise foreign policy which has proved so successful In the pant for so long a period are of the utmost importance While Mr. Hay has communicated his inten tion and the reasons therefor only to the Presi dent, it is easy to surmise that, aside from a patriotic desire to serve his country, and an even broader desire to promote the cause of Interna tional peace and harmony, the Secretary's deep affection for the President has proved an Im portant factor in determining him to retain the heavy responsibilities of his presi nt high office. There has been some apprehension that Mr. Hay might relinquish the portfolio of State at any time to enjoy the easo his borne and family afford to one of h'.s tastes and temperament. When Mr. Roosevelt succeeded President Mc- Klnley it w:<s known that Mr. Hay 'red to be relieved •■! the onerous unties; o? his oftloa, and. that he continued to serve only on earnest solicitation. Of the three Presidents with whom Mr. Hay has been cflosely associated. Mr. Rcose vel: is the >•.... one '.:: called by bis Christian name. It !s also true that the work on which Secretary Bay has recently been engaged has so stimulated his energies that he looks forward to a continuance of his labors in the Slate Depart ment with enthusiastic Interest. The President was asked rrgarci'ng- other pos sible Cabinet changes, but Indicated that there was nothing to be *ati: a., present. His an nouncement regarding Secretary Hay v>;i<= mad* to a number of newspaper men in his Bice late in the afternoon. Mr. Hay's) retention of tho State Department portfolio fixes the most im portant place in the n«*xt Cabinet, and is the firs* and only step so far taken in that direction. FAST THAIS HITS DOOR.

It Is fully expected by the administration that from now until the next message to Congress is made public th-» newspapers will be ftTie<i with more or less sensational reports regarding the President'!" intentions, and it is Just a3 fully expected that the Intelligent public will rec«»lv» them with ffcs same incredulity a3 It receive^ the reports circulated for partisan purr be for* the election. WORK ON THE MESSAGE Just what the message to Congress will cos tain is not known even to the President himself!. Some points have been decided, of course, and It has been determined that It will not contain certain others, but so far as the great body of th«- Executive communication Is concern^ it re mains to be decided, and will so remain until the President, has had an opportunity to consult leading members of the House and Senate* This has been Mr. Roosevelt's policy since he be came President, and if has proved so successful that there will be no deviation from It hereafter. From row on the President will avail himself of every opportunity to confer with members of Congress. He will discuss tariff revision witli all Its pros and cons, and will discuss every sub ject of sufficient importance to be worthy of consideration in his message. Whether or net these subjects will be Incorporated in this year's message or any future . message will depend largely on the temper and judgment of Congress as they can be ascertained in the prospective conferences. There is, therefore, no occasion for "Intelligent anticipation" of radical policies a? startling deviations from the platform on which the President and the Republican party have re-» .celved such an overwhelming indorsement. DIPLOMATIC APPOINTMENTS. It is. of course, true that there will be a num ber of changes among the diplomatic representa tives of the United States, but that does not mean that there will be sweeping chang**."* Neither is there the slightest reason to look for bizarre appointments.
