London, Sept. 17. A Central News despatch from Seoul, dated 0 1. M., Sept, 10, says n groat buttle hiu bcea fought at Ping-Yang between tho Chlncso and Japanese troop. In which tho former were utterly routed. On Thursday a .. V Japanese column from Pong-San made a recon- fy nolssance In force, drawing tho Are of the Chi- m neso fort, and thus ascertained their positions. I The column then fell book in good order with I llttlo loss.' 1)7 Friday night all tho Japanese I were In position for a combined attack upon tho I enemy. The Qensan column threatened tho left flank of tho Chinese, tho Pong-San column threatened tho Chinese centre, while the Ilwang-Ju column operated against tho right, which had been re enforced tho day before by a detachment of marines from tho fleet at tho mouth of tho Tatong Hirer. Tho Chinese, hod utilized tho old defences at Ping-Yang and had thrown up new works making tho position an exceptionally strong ono. Tho battle was opened on Saturday at dny brcak by a Japoncso cannonade of the Chinese works, which was continued without cessation until afternoon, the Chinese responding. The a work with the heavy guns showed good prnc- I tice. At about 2 o'clock a body of infantry was lS thrown forward by tho Japanese and maln- U tntned a rlflo Are upon tho enemy until dusk. Throughout the day only tho Pong-San column was engaged. Tho Chinese defences had suf fered greatly, but the losses on either side were small, both tho Chinese and Japanese having taken advantage of all tho shelter available. The Japanese troops, howovor, had gained some advanced positions. Tho firing continued at Intervals daring the night, and In the mean tlrao two Japanese flank ing columns had formed a cordon around the Chinese. At 3 o'clock In the morning an attack was made by the Japanese columns simultane ously and with admirable- precision. The Chinese lines, which were so strong la front, were found to be weak in the rear, and here the attack was a perfect success. The Chinese were completely taken by surprise, and "l were thrown into a panto. Hundreds were cut J down, and those who escaped death, finding themselves surrounded at every point, broke and fled. Some of Viceroy Li Hung Chang's European-drilled troops stood their ground to the eastward and wero cut down to a man. Tho Pong-Son column, swarming over the de fences In front, completed tho rout. Half an hour after the attack was opened the positions at Ping-Yang were in possession of the Japanese. It is estimated that 80,000 Chinese soldiers were engaged In tho battle. The Japanese cap tured immense stores of provisions, muni tions of war, and hundreds of colors. The Chinese loss is estimated at 10,000 killed, wounded, and taken prisoners. Among those captured by the Japanese aro soveral of the Chl- nese commanding officers, including Oen. Tio- Y Fung, Commandor-ln-Chief of the Manchurlan I army, who was severely wounded. 1 The Japanese loss is only thirty killed and I S70 wounded. Including eleven officers. Most of u the casualties among the Japanese occurred i during the first day's fighting, and very few were the result of the night attack. The Japanese forces are in active pursuit of the fugitives, who have thrown awny their arms and readily yield themselves prisoners. A Central News despatch from Seoul says that within ten hours after the conclusion of the battle the military engineers had completed a field telegraph line from Seoul to Ping-Yang. A large number of prisoners wctj brought into the Japanese camp from houses In which they hod hidden themselves during the final assault. Sev eral thousand Chinese fled toward a valley to the northward, and, upon finding their retreat in this direction cut off, surrendered In u body, i ling-Yang Is now being searched In tho belief J1 that a number of !miurlant Chinese nOlocra are 'J in hiding in tho city under the protection of friendly Coreans. The number of Chlncso who were killed in the battle is estimated at 2,300. The walls of Ping-Yang were badly shattered by the cannonade which was poured upon them by the guns of the Japanese, but tho city Itself is only slightly damaged. The Japanese Emperor has telegraphed from Hiroshima, the shipping point for troops in western Japan, congratulating JIarsh.il Count Yauiugata upon tho success of thu Japanese arms. Murshal Yamagata has Issued a general order commending the valor of tho troops which they have demonstrated on the battlefield. The order coucludes with an expression of tils pride at being In command of so brut e an army, A tl) lug column of the Japanese army is push T' Ing northward with the object of taking posses M tlun of the mountain pusses. At the same time I a proclamation has been Issued promising full Bw. pn.tei.tlon to thu fWaus If they will refrain mt from aeU of hostility ton aril the Japanese. On the other hand, they aro Informal that if they give shelter tu or mango in tralllo with the Chinese, they will li summarily dealt with by processor martini law.

'I ho Times will ay to-morrow morning! " Tho Japanese army has unquestionably Justified tho opinion formed by all who had hod tho opportunity of seeing Its training and rs tiiuntlng the capacity nf Ha effort. Tho .Inpniieie. nation hns recched a trlmphant reward for lit ambitions In a new and jinvMTful Impetus. Henceforth Japan must bo reckoned with as a living force In the Kn,t ntid KnglHimcn, at least, should be nblnto view without Jealousy or misgiving tho ujirislng of these tslnnd people, whose Interests arc largely their own, and with whom they may beforn long come Into closer contact. It Is too eoon to fori cast tho results of tho most Impor tant buttle between Aslatlo powers that has hem fought within this century, but it may be. safely predicted that tho Kusslnn atti tude nf placid cttiectancy will bo exchanged for that of mixli'ty and ticrhaps ostentatious naval activity. In China Internal trouble may bo expi ctnl " Julian now occupies n now and unique posi tion among tint Asiatic peoples.

It takes tho planters bodily over Into tho Republican party. Thcro were 800 persons present, all of them men ot political Influence. The hall whero tho meeting was held was crowded. The delegates represented nt least two-thirds of the sugar In dustry of this State, Including planters, manu facturers, cotton factors, and manufacturers of sugar machinery.

All were nn thu line that protection was in ccssory to the sugar industry of Louisiana and that It could lie found only In tho ranks of the Hcpubllcan party. Mr. Pugh was tho only speaker who did not declare him self a Hcpubllcan in sa many worua., Ucscilu tlons were adopted in favor of the Hcpubllcan party and proposing tho organization of a State commlttco to manago the iKilltlcal Interests nf tho now party. They called also for tho organi zation of clubs throughout the State. All the stieechci wero strongly Republican, Parkerson's lielng tho most pronounced. Thcro was no opposition in the meeting and no dicus. slon of any kind. The planters present seemed to bo of the same mind to go over bodily to tho Republican party. It was thought thnt soma ot tho plnntcrs might waver nt a critical mo ment, but not one of tho men did so. The planters let It ls known to-day that they will make tho Congrrs nominations and would not accept nny nominations made by tho former Republicans. It was annouueed also that per fect accord exists between tho old and new Re publicans. The planters will Insist upon mak ing the nominations for Congress, but will nom inate old-timers In two sugar districts. Tho two organizations will maintain fceparate politi cal and campaign committees for the present. The resolutions demand the, pa)ment of tho sugar bounty for 1X03, tho repeal ot the Ha waiian reciprocity treaty, an honest election, and call far a State commlttco of ttilrt) -five to act with tho national Republican party.

A mass meeting of tho rlco planters nf Acadia parish has been called to meet In Crowley on Saturday next to cpress their dlsphosuro at tho action nf tho Democratic party in regnnl to rlco and sugar. It U probable that at Saturday's meeting they will decldo to eudorso und ratify the resolutions of the Donalsnnvlllo inciting and go over bodll) to the Republican camp. The complaint of tho rice growers Is on thu reduction otthodutyonuncleaned rice, which was made In opposition to the prov Islons of tho WiUou bill and the original Senate bill, A large num ber of tho rlco growers are Western men from Illinois and Iowa, who have settled on the prai rie lauds of southwest Louisiana during tho lost few years.

Saratoga, Pept. 17. Thero wero four brass bands lu this vlllago this morning. Two paraded Urnadnay, tho main street, and en livened tho sensibilities of the Republican dele gates to the Stato Convention. The other two tramped through tho corridors of tho L'nllcil States, nut Into the garden, and pin) eel hard against each other. Ono played a selection from "Erminle," nnd tho other, which was n creation of Senator Henry J, Coggeshall of Wotcrvllle, playisl "Solly In Our Alloy." Later on In the day thero were tnoro bnnds, nnd In the evening thcro were still more. It w as re called that over since tho convention that nomi nated Uov. Cornell thero hnd not been any bnnds to speak of at Republican State Conven tions. Tho Hon. James W. Rusted, now gone, nnd tho Republican Chairmen of committees vv ho havo followed him, used to hunt up bands nnd see how cheap they could be hired. Deacon Hnckctt of Utlca, w ho says that if a Republican is elected (lovernor ho Is to be a railroad com missioner nt $8,000 a jcar, has scoured Saratoga county for bnnds. For tho last ten years from 30 to CO per cent, of tho delegates to Republican Statu Conven tions have not been In their seats. They did not think It worth w Idle to answer to roll calls. In this Convention thcro will be only from five to ten per cent, of tho delegates absent, nnd they will bo represented by partisans. The son ot Reuben E. Fcnton, the great Republican leader who was supplanted by ltocoo Coukling, is hero. Mr. Piatt Is the successor of Mr. Conkllng, nnd neither Thurlow Wenl, Oov. Fcnton, nor Senator Conkllng ever had n stronger mastery nt the situation than this same Mr. Piatt of Tioga. It has been reported here that tho Hon. Chatin ccy M. Depcw would swing into town at tho proper tlmo and nominate Mr. Morton In the Convention. It tnrns out that Mr. Depcw will not coma hero for any such purpose unless ho changes his mind. The Republican Stato Con vention without tho Hon. Chauncey M. Dcpew is llko colic without tho green apples. The Hon. UcnJamlu F. Tracy is hero and if Mr. Depcw does not Appear, and unless thero Is a change in tho'programme, Oen. Tracy will nomlnato Mr. Morton In the Convention. He Is not n delegato from Ilrooklyn, neither is ho A delegato from New York county, but that can bo cosily arranged by tho substitution of Oen. Tracy for a New York delegate. It was sold to-night that Oen. Tracy was debating the possibility ot thus appearing before tho Conven tion. He Is to determine to-morrow morning just what he 111 do In this matter. Mr. Cornelius N. Bliss nf New York had a long conference this morning with ex-Sen-tor J. bloat Fossett, and afterward It was circulated that Mr. HIIss had an nounced himself as a candtdato for Gov ernor. Any statement of that kind Is not correct -"Without dcubt,-auordIng to pfstnt Information, Mr. Illlss will havo ths votes of delegates In the Convention. The story that Sir. HIIss wax a candidate, was circulated by personal f rlendsof Mr.Fassett. This Chemung young man. It was said, was laying pipes by these method for Ids nomination fur Governor three ) ears from now, 'and In 11100 ha thinks he will be old enough to becomo the candidnte of his iiarty for President- Tho 1111m situation Is thnt delegates In New York county proiiose to vote for him in Convention In order to stnp "Juko" Patterson and his followers, who, it Is declare,, hovebo tro)ed nnd outraged tho Comtnlttcunt Thirty.of which Mr. Iillssls Chairman. The Hon. William Hrookfield.ChatrmannfthuStateCnmmltteeand President uf tho Republican County Committee of New York, and others believe that Mr. HIIss ts tight, but tho old comment ot Edwin Ein stein, that Patterson is a " chump,"does not pre vail here. Mr. Illlss will receive. It Is bcllevcu. a complimentary voto in the Convention. The Onondaga delegation threw into the de deliberations ot tho delegates to-day a very seri ous factor. It named tho Hon. Francis Hen dricks fnr Lieutenant-Governor. Mr. Hendricks has been known fur many years among hi friends ns A sowed-oft edition of Samuel J. Tlldcn. who. In his tlmo, w os thn greatest politi cal manager In hi party. Llko Mr. Til den. Mr. Hendricks Is silent, nnd ho is crafty or wise, just a une coren to accept those terms. Hu Is iv first-class listcuer. and the poorest talker on earth. Ho ha almost that lisp that Mr. Tllden had. He does not tell what ho Is about through a bras band. Mr. Hendricks 1 thought by his friends to be of Gubernatorial timber, Tho Hendricks boom cannot yet bcdetcrralneihand the strength of It will bo known later on, but It 1 a matter of fact that when It was launched Ucn. Jim Wodsworth of Gnesco, and Undo Ueorgo Aldridge of Rochester, and Deacon Saxtnn from the peppermint district of Wayne went out and hod something. Gen. Wudsworth took u dash of brandy. Undo Ueorge stuck to his favorite old beverage of milk and v Ichy, nnd Deacon Saxton took ginger ale only nn this particular occasion. The ale, when it was handed to Mr. Saxtnn, had a darker hue than ginger usually has. There are strong men here who favor tho candidacy uf Mr. Hen dricks. The Urookljn people are not at all modest In this Convention. 1 hey had a meeting, or a cau cus, or a conference, they could not exactly de cide which, this afternoon. While nothing of tuiDoilanco wnsdono, It 1 nevertheleastruethut fifty out ot tho ninety delegotes from Kings count) say they would llku to havo Jesse John, son nominated fur Judgu of the Court of Ap peal. They would also llko to hove Gen, Stewart L. Wondfurd nominated for Governor. A a mutter of fact Morton will havo many del egate front Kings. So will Judge Hulght tor Judge ot thu Court of ApieaU, und thero I n good deal nf strength III tho delegation fur Sax tnn, Franklin Woodruff, the delegate from the Gnsnwixsl Cemetery district, tajs very em phatically to-night that the nomination uf Mr. Morton is not yet secured. Hu say that he Is against Mr. Morton, lie bellovethat Mr, Mor ton will bo beaten lu this Convention, and say that he will take every fctep to attain that end. Mr. Woodrult Is o great blgman, Hcissmnolh-fac-Mt, iud his linen la Immaculate. When he say u thing ho means It. Hu wears a slouch hat with fourlceu holea In It nt thu ton, and he doe-snot talk through these holes at all. Hu vociferate his views, and all the time that he uttered them In tho United Stall lloiel this noon the Tioga chieftain over In cot tage No. 7 trembles, Emissaries and tele graph buys and Mr Piatt's lieutenants con veed aWjuhk Intervals the views of Mr Wood ruff. Mr. Piatt did not seem to think that In the end Mr. Wood ruff would defeat Mr. Mor tal!, but then Mr. Piatt very seldom tell what Is In hi inmost heart. Tho Piatt lieutenant said that Mr. Woodruff was possibly the great est Republican politician In King after Theo Ii. Willi. It la a very Interesting sight to fceo Sir, Wool ruff in his great act uf inralllng dele gale against Mr. Mortun. Mr. WoMrulT does notspeak lu a soft aud easy vulce. What he has to sav la trumpeted uutsln bluff tones, snd hen he said thai he means to defeat Mr, Mortun the very bricks in the United States trembled, the Soot wavered, tuul ex-Internal Revenue narsMfjni, r -JltitbUtfftr- t- Collcctor Ernst Nathan, and ex-Congressman Wallace, and the Hon. Jacob North, and come of the other citizens of the City of Churches, w ho thought they bad their eyes wido open, be lieved that It was high tlmo for them to con ciliate Mr. Woodruff nnd beg him not to defeat Mr. Morton. Hut It was remarked to-night that when Mr. Woodruff defeats Mr. Morton tho tombstones In his district will clancti Inccstnsy. Hut Mr. Woodruff should not be dbreganlcd, and his views on the situation should not tie lightly spoken of. Ilcbe'llevcs that there Is to bo n Republican candidate for President elected In 1800, and bis friends say that ho wants to bo Secretary of the Treasury. After all, it Is the testimony of Republicans lute to-night that the ticket now uppermost Isi For Gov crnnr, Levi Parsons Morton; for Lieutenant-Governor, Charles T. Saxtnn of Wayne, Congressman James W. Wndsworthnf Living ston, or Francis Hendricks of Onondaga; for Judgo uf the Court of Appeals, Alliert llnlght of Huffalo, whose term as n Supremo Court Judgo expires nn Dec. 31, 1004. it Is believed thai Oen. Wndswurth has lost strength within tho last twenty-four hours, liccauso thcro has been a shift, geographically. In Iho promised nnmlnntlon for Judgo of the Court of Appeals, ltwns flrst Intended that Supreme Court Judgo Kellogg nf Plattsburgli should bo nominated fur Judge of tho Court of Appeals. Hols hero, nnd his friends have Issued n statement lu his behalf, which sa) s: . fourth Judicial district embraces the counties ot St. Ijiwrenee, franklin, Clinton, Essex, Warren, Washington, Saratoga, Schenectady, Montgomery, Fulton, ami Hamilton, the Isnrrst Judicial district In the Mate, and always Itepubllian by uirrwhchiilni majorltles. This district has never since the creation of the Court of Appeals In IStn been representee! In the Court uf Appeals, ami the llepulillcan jwvrty has never cien put In nomination a man from this district. Nn other Judicial district has been treated In this way. The. first (New York city) has had six Judge In thu court; the Second (Ihe Ilrooklyn dlstrht) has had three; the Third (Iho Albany district) hat had six: the Hftli, which Include Syracuse, Watertown. and Herkimer, has had ten; tho Sixth has had threes the beventh (the IbKhester district) has had six; the Klghthha had two, and two others, IisnleU and Halght, have been nominated from that district by tho Hcpubllcan party and have been defeated at the polls. The Fourth district, which has never had a Judge In tho Court of Appeals, asks for tho nomination of Justice Kellogg. There are other Influences that hnvo Injured Judge Kellogg' boom, it is nut ucccfutary nuw to speak of them. If ho wns nominated here the Democratlo newspapers might have some thing to soy which might be accepted Osgood political matcrlaL Tho situation ns to tho candidate for Lieutenant-Governor Is tho interesting part of the racket. On the roll call tho candidate for Lieutenant-Governor is named beforetho candi date for the Court of Appeals. Mr. Piatt, tho Republican master, w ill toko no hand, and has taken no hand, In the fight for Lieutenant-Governor. Hut he has had something to toy about tho candidate for Governor and tho candldato for Judgo of the Court of Appeals, nnd to night Mr. Piatt sold that, as n dele gato unlnstructed from Tioga county, he would vote for Mnyor Ueorgo Orccn of Ulnghamton for Lieutenant-Governor. This Ilroomo county crowd aro great people. The county Is ruled by tho four Ocorgcs-Gcorge Dunn, Ueorgo Green, George Lyon, und Gcorgo Curtis. They bellcvo In Green nnd thev licltovn that Mr. Piatt's announcement I significant. Yet it must always be remarked that as a politi cal leader and tho master of his jiarty Mr. Piatt will not In any way lnfluonco tho candldato for Lieutenant-Governor. Ho will noteven sneak or the subject to his oldest friends, neither In IKilltlcal nor newspaper life. That is the ono sub ject that Is barred, and the delegates from tho various counties must fight this battle out them selves. The Republican State Commlttco met to night and decided that Representative Emuel I. ynlgg bo made temporary Chairman of the Convention. Mr. Quiggls to moke the greatest effort nf hi Ufa In tho siiccch which hu I to fire oft at the delegates. .Mr. Ijulgg I not una to lose an opportunity. He will embrace this one, und what he soys here will bo of Interest, for the reason that hu Is to be renominated for Con gress In New York city this fall. It Is the opinion hero tiMilghl thnt nil that Is left of the George Aldridge Isi mi nro tho signs announcing his candidacy .and the pictures, and tho brass I i lid that ho lues brought to town.

The great question here to-nliriit. In view of the many Klatemuiits. Is what will bu thu Htn ngtb uf the antl-Mortnn opposition In the Convention, if ono tulks to Col. John Dwight, ono nf thu cor oner of thn Fassett liooin, hu will re-celve tho Intelligent Information that thero aro A thousand delegates In this Convention im posed to Alortnn. If one talks to ex-Naval Offi cer Willi of Ilrooklyn. Chairman William Hrnnkflild nf tho Statu Commlttie, nnd Geu. Sam Thonins, who holds the isicketlmok of thu Stale Committee when It Is cmpty.hu will bo told that there nro 1,800 delegate lu this Convention opposed to Morton, or rather nppoed to Piatt. The fact that there) ore only ,.13 delegates lu thl Convention ha very little toilu with tho estimates of thexo gentlemen. Gen. Thomas said utter consideration that he hud "left hi thinking machlnonver in Mr, Plutt'a cottage." Tho anti-Morton folks had annthe r talk at tho Grand Union to-night, und FasM-tl was there. Gun. Thomas, Mho, II. Dutcher of Ilrooklyn, Cornelius N. Illlss Judgii Leslie W. Russell, Gen. Dan Hiitterfleld. Col. S. V. 11. Cruger of Trinity Churchyard, and other resurrectionists were there. They had o pleasant tlmo among themselves, and all got out their privuto pads nnd rehearsed the da) when they wero school Ikiv a and knew all about addition, division, uud not silence.
