A cablegram from St. Petersburg last
night says: Emperor Nicholas has received
the following from Viceroy Alexleff. dated
at Mukden, August 7:
"Telegrame received today from. Port
Arthur and from the commander of the
squadron (Rear Admiral Withoft) . state
that'the cruisers Bayan. Askold, Panad,
and Novik and some gunboats steamed
out of the harbor on July 26 for the pur
pose of bombarding the enemy's positions.
They were attacked by the Japanese bat
tle ship Chinyen, the protected cruisers
Chiyoda, Itsukushima and Matsishima,
and two second-class cruisers, with thirty
"An eight-inch shell from the Bayan
burst in the stern of the Itsukushima,
placing that ship out of action. There
upon all the Japanese ships steered for
the open sea, and at the same time the
Chiyoda was damaged by a Russian mine.
As the Chiyoda was sinking by the head
she steered toward Tallen bay. A shot
from battery 22 also damaged a Japanese
gunboat, which was sighted.
"On July 27, in view of the Japanese
having taken the general oftensive against
our land positions, the Bayan, Captain Reit
senstein; the battle ship Retvisan, the
Pallada, Askold and Novik, the coast-de
tense ships Gremiashchi and Otvashni,
the gunboat Giliak and twelve torpedo
boats, under the command of Rear Ad
miral Leschinsky, were orderedl to support
our right flank at the deniand of Lieut.
Gen. Stoessel (commander of the military
forces at Port Arthur).
Bombarded the Jap Positions.
"Our ships, preceded by mine dredges.
steamed toward Lungantan, from where
they bombarded the Japanese positions
until 3 o'clock in the afternoon.
"On their return, which they effected
with the same precaution, a mine ex
ploded underneath one of the dredges.
"Rear Admiral Withoft estimated that
the enemy's naval forces which were off
Port Arthur July 30 consisted of five battle
ships, four armored cruisers, ten other
cruisers and forty-eight torpedo craft."
Viceroy Alexieff's dispatch bears out the
reported loss of the Japanese protected
cruisers Itsukushima and Chiyoda, and In
dicates considerable activity on the part of
the Port Arthur squadron. The care 'er
cised in sending a dredger fleet ahead of
the squadron, both in leaving and in re
turning to the harbor, is amply vmndica e
by the loss of one of the pilot boats, arid Is
also taken as a guarantee that there will
be no further damage to the Russian bar
ships by Japanese mines.
Calchas Held at Vladivostok.
A cablegram from Vladivostok last night
says: The British steamer .Calchas, from
Tacoma for Japanese ports, which was ar
rested by -the Vladivostok squadron, thirty
miles north of Tokyo bay during the recent
cruise off the Pacific coast of Japan, arrived
here today in charge of a prise crew. She
was a week overdue, having Deen detained
The Calchas is the last vessel captured
by Admiral Jessen's cruisers. The papers
of the Calchas showed she was carrying
370 tons of flour, 9 tons of cottun, 215 cogs
and 125 parts of machinery, all consigned
to Yokohama. The remaining 1,500 tons of
the Calchas' cargo were consigned to Hong
The Calchas was bound fram Hongkong
to Europe and carried sufficient coal to go
to Vladivostok. Therefore, it was decided
to send her to that port in charge of Lieut.
Stackelberg and forty-one men from the
Rurik. The transfer of the prize crew to
the steamer was attended with the greatest
danger, owing to the heavy sea which was
running at the time.
The Calchas is owned by Alfred Ilolt &
Company of Liverpool, otherwise the Ocean
Steamship Company, limited, of that port.
She is a vessel of 4,279 tons, and was built
at Greenock in 1899. She was commanded
by Capt. Hannah. She left Tacoma for
Japanese ports and Hongkong on July 8.
since which time she had not been reported.

Spanish War Veterans Offer Their
Services and Sympathy.
The local Spanish War Veterans have of
fered their services and sympathies in be
half of Samuel R. Young, the youthful
trooper of the 15th Cavalry who is in jail
charged with causing the death of Police
man Smith July 4 by shooting him. The
shooting occurred on the Aqueduct bridge.
Mrs. Young of Rochester, Pa., mother of
the young soldier, in connection with mem
bers of Miles Camp, United Spanish War
Veterans. has retained Attorneys J. Lewis
Smith. the adjutant of Miles Camp, atnd
James B. Archer, jr., to look after the in

A committee from Miles Camp, consisting
of Commander G. E. Rausch, Lieut. W. H.
Lawder, junior vice commander. and Mr.
A. J. Hawkins, visited the jail yesterday
and had a talk with Trooper Young. When
seen afterward they declared their belief
in the prisoner's innocence of any intention
to harm the policeman. Young is sorrow
stricken, they said, over the fatal outcome
of what they term "a- Fourth of July lark
of a young soldier who was trying to en
joy himself like others, and was firing
blank cartridges from his revolver.'
Adjutant Smith said the testhnony of
Young that he had nothing but blank car
tridges with him is borne out, and that only
blanks were found in his pistoL. Young, he
added, regrets the happening very much
and declares he is not guilty of any Inten
The prisoner is a fine-looking young man

record as a soldier. A statement has been

Army officers under whom he served are
also preparing papers certifying to his good
conduct and record as a soldier. These
will be presented to the court when Young
is called for trial.

Upon taking the chair at today's session
of the convention of the International
Brotherhood of Stationary Firemen, Presi
dent Timothy Healy announced that the
first business would be the report of the
credentials committee on.the papers of the
delegate firemen from the strike center in
the west, who reached Washington earlier
in the day. These delegates were promptly
seated. An auditing committee was elect
ed and the report of the executive board
read, as was that of the delegation which
attended the annual convention of the
American Federation of Labor at Boston.
The convention favored the passage of
state laws and city ordinances requiring
stationary firemen to be licensed. Th:s
subject was generally discussed. President
Healy stated that such a law had been in
force with good results in Masiachusetts
for about six years. There is also a license
law in New York and other cities. Such an
enactment, he added, is necessary for the
safety of life and property. Many plants,
Mr. Healy asserted, employ incompetent
men. The licensed men should be familiar
with all parts of a boiler and know how
to operate them.
A new committee was formed on "journal
and printing," and President Healy ap
pointed as its members- James O'Donnell,
James Holewell, W. P. Kirwin, Thomas
Kelley and Ed. Kehoe.
Other committees were appointed as fol

A CompUmentaly Smoker.
The Washington delegates, Messrs. L. S.
Crown and J. R. Hartle7, invited the dele
gates on behalf of Firemen's Local No. 63
to attend a complimentary smoker this
evening at Costello's hall, 6th and G streets
The afternoon session,of the convention
was omitted that the newly appointed com
mittees might have an opportdnity to pre
pare reports and recommendations.
The advance guard of the striking fire
men from the western meat packing house
centers reached Washington this morning
and the delegates were in attendance at
the second day's session of the convention
The delegation is ~ftrn Chicago, and its
members are sObefantiaMlooking men. At
its head is Joseph W. Morton, presi
dent and business agent of Firemen's
Local No. 7 of Chicago, which body is
now much in evidence in the big meat
strike in the west. His associates are Ed
ward Kehoe and Thomas~ Martin. also of
Local No. 7. Other firemen from the strike
center are expected to reach here this even
ing or tomorrow morning.
An Interesting statement of the fight of
the packing house firemen in the west,
which has been transferred in a measure
to the convention now in session here, was
made to a Star reporter today. It appears
that some time ago the packing house fire
men organized a campaign for an eight
hour day. Before they organized they were
required to work twelve hours for $1.75 per
diem. Soon after their union had been
formed they demanded shorter hours. The
meat packers responded to this demand by
increasing the wages of the firemen, but
declining to shorten the working day.
Last year another demand for shorter
hours was made, to which the packers re
plied by repeating their action of the year
before and Increased the wages of the fire
men so that they are now receiving $3 n
$3.25 for a twelve-hour day.
When the butchers and other employcs
of the packing houses decided to go out on
the big strike which is now oni the packers
informed their firemen that they would give
them an eight-hour day and allow their
salaries to remain at the presmixt figure ($3
and $3.25 per day), provided they would
not go out on a sympathetic strike with the
The firemen, however, decided to walk out
wttlh the other strikers and are now In the
thick of the fray. It Is said they now want
the International Brotherhood. In sessian
here, to indorse tiheir movement for a de
crease in their working period to eight
hours a day at the prevailing scale of
wages. The dclegation represents the meQt
packing house firemen in Chicago, Kansa,s
City, St. Louis, Omolha, St. Joseph and
other packing house centers.
BuEness= Session Yesterday Afternoon.
The first business session of the conven
tion was held yesterday afternoon, begin
ning at 3 o'clock. behind closed doors. The
annual report of the secretary-treasurer. C.
L. Shamnp of Omaha,Showed that the organ
ization had gained about 5.000 members
during the year. the total membership now
being 30,000 firemen in the United States,
Canada and British Columbia.
When the report of the credentials com
mittee was under, consideration, a lively
discussion ensued over the proposition to
unseat Delegate J. F. Mullahy of Wilkes
barre, Pa. A delegation from his union was
present to urge that he be not seated. The
convention decided, not to seat him because
of a technical violation of the constitutional
provisions of the union In- his election. The
matter will be investigated later.

TRACK8 NEARLY READY
BAILWAY BEING BUILT ACROSS
Temporary Construction, Which Will
Be in Use Within About
Within about ten days, if the present
plans of Contractor Stewart are carried
out, there will be a full-fledged steam rail
way in operation across the plaza in front
of the Capitol.
"All aboard for the union station site,"
the conductor will announce, and the little
"dinkle" engine will puff and pull. Off it
will go, drawing its trainload of dirt from
the site of the new building for the House
of Representatives at New Jersey avenue
and B street southeast, over the Capital
Traction Company's tracks on B street
northeast and out in front of the big white
Right in the shadow of the majestic dome
the impertinent little train will speed, and
when it reaches the driveway on the north
side it will turn down hill. With steam
turned off, it will coast through the Capitol
grounds to North Capitol street, into which
it will turn and continue its downward
course across the Metropolitan car tracks
on C street northeast until it comes to the
Baltimore and Ohio railroad's tracks, which
it will cross on a steel bridge a hundred
feet long and twenty-two feet high.
It will then proceed to North Capitol and
E street northeast, where its load of earth
will be dumped from a trestle into the "fill"
for which it is intended.
In this way will the 90,000 cubic yards of
earth to be excavated for the office build
ing's foundation be remQved and placed
where it is needed to build up a portion of
the new union station site.
The Tracks in Place.
The tracks are already laid in front of
the Capitol, and as soon as the two street
railways complete the work of the cross
ings the remainder will be put down and
the running of the trains begun.
A big steam shovel is running on the
office building site at present dumping the
earth into wagons, which carry it over.
Soon another shovel may be in operation at
the same place, and together they will dig
the foundation. One will fill the railroad
cars, each of which holds three cubic
yards, and the other will fill wagons.
When this time comes the wagons will
cease to haul the earth to the union station,
but will take it to the War College in the
southwest instead. The little train alone
will supply the union station.
Three engines will be used on the railroad,
and it is estimated that 1.000 feet a day will
be carried across in front of the Capitol, al
though there is considerable uncertainty as
to the exact quantity, because the con
tractors cannot tell just what effect the
grades will have on the speed of the trains.
The time table will be "every now and
then, from '7 a.m. until 11 p.m."
,Width of Right of Way.
Twelve feet is the width of the right of
way granted the builders for the tracks, and
this will be fenced in with a four-foot fence
and provided with suitable crossings for pe
destrians and vehicles.
Only at the street railway crossings will
the asphalt be disturbed. At other places
the ties are laid on the paving and the
rails and fence posts spiked to them with
out harm to the asphalt. The gauge of the
track is thirty-six inches.
It is understood that a number of per
scns living on North Capitol street between
the Capitol grounds and C street have com
plained against the building of the rail
toad in front of their homes, but the con
tractor said this morning that the work
was authorized by elhe District Commis
sioners, who believed t-hey were acting for'
the best interests of the public. He said,
further, that the trains, as they go over
North Capitol street loaded, will be on the
down grade with all steam turned on, and
when they have the upward pull tihey will
be emnpty, so that the noise will be reduced
to a minimum. This is the only residence
block affected by the railroad.
It will be several months before the earth
is entirely removed and the running of the

This action was the result of an Investl

Examiner Wanamaker of the commission
being sent to Philadelphia to make a care
ful scrutiny of the situation as outlined by
Mr. Jenks. The charges were, in effect.
that 2.i per cent of the eligibles on the
clerks' and carriers' appointments regist"r
for 1901 had been certified three times by
the commission and rejected by the post
master of Philadelphia. This charge was
found, by Examiner Wanamaker to be
sustained by the evidence adduced during
his examination of witnesscs to the num
ber of 2d, whose statements he took, and
whom he found had been rejected. He
learned that a very small proportion of
them were republicans, and that none had
secured an indorsement from any promi
nent republican which had been transmitted
to the postmaster.
Eight to Reject Eligibles.
Postmasters have the right to reject two
out of every three names certified to them
by the commission, but it was regarded
with suspicion that a much larger number
was passed over at Philadelphia than else
Commissioners Cooley and Greene, on
August 2, in Philadelphia, examined those
selected, and found that out of 49 of them
selected at random, 90 per cent were either
republicans, or had secured indorsements
from prominent republican politicians, and
in nearly every case from the republican
leader of the division or ward in which
the appointee lived. Some of those re
jected, the report adds, were told by the
postmaster that their names had been
passed by because they were not known or
recommended to him.
Postmaster McMichael, when called on
by the commission, says the report, "stated
that he had appointed no man who was not
known to him or recommended to him;
that the republican ward leaders were in
the habit of calling at his office and recom
mending the appointment of various per
sons from the eligible register. He further
said, however, that he had accepted recom
mendations from any reputable citizen."
