COMMENTS IRONICALLY.
Russian Paper Says That American
Promises Evaporate.
ST. PETER8Bt'RG, August 15. -Tioday's
issue of the Novoe Vremya comments
ironically upon a telegram from Washing
ton, saying the t'nited States is unable to
do more than lend moral support in pre
serving the neutrality of China. The paper
declares that, after having been the first
to avow a dietermination to guarantee
'hilna's neutral integrity, now that there is
hecessity of action in connection with the
Ryeshitel affair at Chefoo, all the Amter
lcan promises "evaporate, and are found
to have been made up of nothling but
words.'

toriah space to the naval engagement oir

press the belief that the remainder of the

deal with the Ryeshitel Incident. M.

BALTIC FLIBT ACTIVE.
Boats Being Coaled to Full Capacity
At Cronstadt.
ST. PETERSBURG, Audust 13.-There Is
considerable activity aboard the ships of
the Baltic fleet. A large amount of sailors'
baggage is being taken to the new battle
ship Orel. Orders have been issued that
all torpedo-boat destroyers of the second
division shall be coaled to full capacity.
The boats are to await further orders in
the small roadstead at Cronstadt.
Shore libetry on all vessels has been cur
tailed after sunset.
The cruiser division of the Baltic squad
ron has received sailing orders. Some of
the vessels have already left Cronstadt,
and others, including the Oleg. will leave
in a few days. The division may go round
the cape of Good Hope, where it will meet
colliers.
The baittle ship division is awaiting the
completion of the repairs to the Orel, and
is not likely to start for a week or a fort
night.
Gen. Glazoff has been appointed minister
of public instruction.
The appointment of a minister of public
instruction has been one which the em
peror has found much difficulty in filling
to his satisfaction because of the friction
growing out of the demands of the Jews
and Poles to be admitted to the universities
and the policy of the reactionary party to
limit their number. M. Bosopeloff, the
minister of public instruction, was assas
sinated in February, 1t1, by a student, and
was succeeded by M. Vannawsky, who
ser' ed but a year, and in turn was suc
ceeded by M. Zenger, who proved himself
to be so much in sympathy with the dis
contented class that he was summarily
dismissed in February last without expla
nation. His assistaht. Lieut. Gen. Glazoff,
has now been promoted.
Russian Vessels at Tsingtau.
BERLIN, August 15.-The hauliung down
or the flags of the Russian vessels at Tsing
tau took place in accordance with instruc
tions of the German foreign office, which,
having ascertained that the damages sus
tained by the warships were too serious for
repairs to be made within a reasonable
time, gave orders for them to disarm and
be detained for the rest of the war. Japan
has been officially informed of the action
taken by Germany.
The foreign office, taking note of the re
port that' Germany is preparing a state
ment to the powers regarding her course
toward the Russian vessels at Tsingtau,
says this is incorrect. Germany's course
has been wholly within the requirements of
International law, and requires no expla
nation.
The foreign office further denies the as
sertion emanating from St. Petersburg that
Germany is supporting Russia's protest at
Peking against Japan's infringement of
Chinese neutrality in the case of the Chefoo
Incident.
The crews of the Russian vessels have
been ordered to be detained by the German
authorities at Tsingtau until the close of
the war.
SEA FIGHT AUGUST 10.
Russian Paper's Naval Expert Reviews
the Incident.
ST. PETERSBURG, August 15, 1:Z2 p.m.
-The Novoe Vremya's naval expert, re
viewing the incidents of the sea fight of
August 10, says:
"Admiral Togo's first division sailed out
from the Elliot Islands or Talienwan, and
arrested Admiral Withoft's progress, util
izing the enormous superiority of the Jap
anese in torpedo boats to attack the Rus
sian vanguard and sowing floating mines
in its course, a strategem hitherto un
known, which paralyzed Withoft's move
ments, as it was almost impossible to de
tect the floating mines without stationing
a lookout in the bows, which necessitates
exposing the men to almost certain death.
"This, presumably, caused Withoft and
his staff to leave the conning towers and
stand on the bridge, whence they could
better detect the treacherous obstacles.
Thanks to the courage and self-sacrifice of
the admiral and the other officers, the
squadron successfully avoided a danger
such as never before encountered, but the
remainder of Admiral Togo's fleet came up,
compelling a general engagement, in which
the Japanese again were favored by the
svperiorfty of their torpedo boats-thirty
to eight.
"Their artillery also was stronger by
half as many guns and their secondary bat
teries by a third more than their main
batteries. The Russians had the advan
tage, however, of the disposition of the
big guns of the Czarevitch, Poltava and
Sevastopol, the strong force of their fire
aft enabling them to punish the enemy
behind. The battle at this stti'ge was limit
ed to long range firing, in which the twelve
inch guns had a monopoly. It was at
this time that the Czarevitch was crippled
and the others gathered round to protect
her. It was the crucial period. The Jap
anese, according to their custom, concen
trated their fire on the flagships, the Ret
vizan an'd Csarevitch, which were both
crippled."
The writer adds that he believes that
both the Russian flagships were put out
of action, but he is convinced that the
Japanese sustained severe loss and recalls
the fact that many Japanese vessels were
crippled at the naval battle of the Yalu,
by the Chinese warships.
He does not expect Admiral Togo was in
a position to follow up the Russian war
ships, which, he claims, escaped and prob
ably are heading for Vladivostok.
JAPS ECONNOITER DAILY,
Preparing for an Attack-Have a
Large Force,
LIAO YANG, August 14 (Delayed In
transmission.)-The Japanese are preparing
to make an attack. They inahe reconnois
sances daily to ascertain the strength of the
Russians at Anshanahan. The Japaee are
eight miles to the southward of Anshan
shan and thence hold a line southeast, in
cluding the valley of Sidahi, whence their
line runs northeast to Holoungow, which is
occupied by a large force. Further north
their outposts are some miles from Landi
ansan.
Opposite Anping the Japanese occupy
Goutsyatszi.
On the Taitsi river the Japanese outposts
occupy Daodinshan, whence the Japanese
tried to ford to Bensihu, which is defende
by the Russians. The road thence stands
toward the Yantat mines and the railroall
north of Liao'Yang.
The Japanese also occupy Tiatohan, op
posite Dapindoushan, on the Salmatsi road
over the Taipin. pass and through Slntszin
tin to Mukden.
There are constant reports that the Jab
anese are moving large forces on the rail
road to Sinmintin and that they are bring
ing up pontoons to cross the Liae river,
tihus threatening the Mukden and Liao
Yang railroad.
From all this it is easy to perceive that
the Russians' strategical position is very
good, They occupy, with LUao Yang as
the center, a fortified semi-circle. The
Russian forces can be concentrated easily
and moved inside lines. The Japanese, onI
the other hand, are outside and, therefore,
much dispersed. The RussianS' position, it
is claimed, will he still better when they
rire from Anshanshan.
The Japanese are ever showing a desire
to close the circle fromn the north, sinul
taneously moving frees the west and .sast
toward Yantal. Mukaen and Ta pass, Um

Call Today.
THE FORMER IN DEMAND
WILL DO THE BULK OF STUMP
SPEAKING FOR CABINET.
Major Llewellyn Thinks There is Not
Much Chance for Statehood Bills
Next Session.
President Roosevelt had few visitors to
day and will not see many people from now
until the time he leaves Washington for
hit home at Oyster Bay, although he will
confer with those having important b'nsi
ness of any kind. He has satisfie l the
demand of the politicians for opportt.n:y
to talk with him, and there will probably
not be many republican leaders in the city
during the remainder of the week.
Secretary Shaw was t.he first visitor wit.h
the President today. He remaid with
him half an hour or more. Secretary Shaw
is scheduled to do the hulk of the stuup
speaking for the cabinet this year, and it
is probable that he will make an c rly
start. He has been,asked to open the cam
paign in California, but he has reached no
decision as to when he will go. The vari
cus requests that have reached him to
make speecheQS he has referred to Cli irnrln
Cortelyou of the republican national com
mittee. who will make up the itinerary of
each speaker according to his own judg
ment.
Mr. Cortelyou has not yet made an as
signment of cabinet oficers or others. Sec
retary Shaw said that he had some business
calling him to the Pacific coast and that he
may go there before the time arrives for
displaying oratory and -huge blocks of fact
and logic. Secretary Shaw is counted the
ablest stump spe,tker in the cabinet and
one: of the ablest in the country.

The Japanese minister showed no elation
over recent Japanese victories at sea, and
cleverly concealed emotions or sentiments
of any kind.
No Statehood for 'Territories.
Major W. H. H. Liewellyn, United States
attorney for New Mexico, and a comrade
of President Roosevelt in the Rough Rid
ers, called to pay his respects. He was one
of the majors of the Rough Riders when
the President was lieutenant colonel and
colonel and they have known each other
well and pleasantly ever since.
"Sa far as I can find in the west," said
Major Liewellyn, "there. is unanimity of
opinion that the President will sweep the
country." Major Lieweilyn said that state
hood for Arizona and New Mexico appears
to be a dream, so far as he can see. "The
coming session of Congress," he said, "Is
a short one, and there wfll be little time .fer
consideration of statehood questions. Bs
sides this there is strong opposition supong
the democrats to putting Arizona afd- New
Mexico into one state, and several reoub
lican senators are opposed to this pian,
which wasn worked out at the last session
of Congress by the House and passed by
that body. So there is not~ much prospect
of a bill being passed at the next sess!cn.
There is strong opposition to single st.tte
hood for both these territories, and hm
portant influences will operate to .prevent
the passage of the measure pending in the
Senate. There is no doubt that ArisMaa is
solidly opposed to being consolidated with
New Mexico in the matter of statehood.
and there is much opposition to this method
in New Mexico."

$sting From the Packers.
Tif- UTMOST SECRECY
CONrIRENCE BOARD IN SECRET
SESSION TODAY.
t Dalhrs Pleaded With Maye
Earriusv to Stop Striks-Stregg
CHICAGO, August 15.-What is believed
to be tantamount to a reopening of nego
tiatiotis for peace, emanating from the
packers, brought a session of the allied
trades conference board to a termination
today.
'she board had been in session several
houts when a messenger arrived bearing
trord from the packers. Word spread that
the way had been paved for the reopening
of peace negotiations. The news was
greeted with enthusiasm.
A committee from the conference board
was quickly selected and left, ostensibly to
meet the packers. The utmost secrecy gov
erned the steps that followed the appear
ance of the messenger. Adjou.nment was
taken shortly after and the conferees were
instructed to remain within easy call to re
ceive a report from the committee that
was sent out.
Meat dealers pleaded with Mayor Harri
son this afternoon to stop the stock yards
strike.
Oscar F. Mayer, George Duddleston and
others of the committee of ten appointed
Friday evening for the purpose went into
session with the mayor. Before going in
Mr. Duddleston, who supplies meat to five
railroad companies, said he had suffered
from the new stringency with which the
union boycott was enforced today, and had
been prevented from making deliveries.
Anxions Over Report.
It was nearly an hour before the strikers'
committee, headed by President Donnelly
and Nicholas Gier. returned to union
headquarters. The conference of the allied
trades then reassembled to receive the
committee's report. The importance with
which It was regarded was obvious by the
anxiety with which the return of the com
'mittee was awaited. A long session fol
lowed.
Denied Forcibly.
Strike leaders and the big packing firms
denied forcibly today that any efforts had
been made by either side to bring about
another conference looking to peace in the
stdck yards.
President Donnelly of the Butcher Work
men said:
"I have read the stories that we secretly
mest representatlives of the packers within the
last two day. and that we intended to hold
another meeting possibly today. But the
-stories are absolutely untrue. Neither we
nor any persons representing us have seen
any representatives of the packers. I have
no reason to believe the 'packers have
sought to see us. Any conference that is
held 1must comprehend all the interests af
fected and must be held with rerDresenta
jives of the allied trades. Any agreement
that mighbt be reached would have to be
ratBedbythe allied trades. Any agree
ta sndo would have to take care of
teabrInterests involved."
The packers were just as positiv.e and
their 'expressions Indicated that they pon
eidered general negotiation fully as useless
now as they did a week ago.
Meeting' Awakens huspiciona,
SDespite the positive denials by both- pack
e.and strike leaders that peace plans were
uasr consideration, a suspicion that ims
portant proposals are under consideration
was caused %y the ealy meeting today of
thze allied trades board. There were guards
at eveer doer and no one but usembers et
the beard was permitted to appeeach. Pius

not," said Mr. Golden. "I have a right to
go to anybgdy I want to and get funds for
my men. I have volunteered to aid the
butchers, and I think It very unbecoming
in Donnelly to object to our helping our
selves. The post omce employes invited a
emmittee from our organisation to see
them sad that is isow it came about."
Golden's erganisation has received $2,000
from the truck drivers and $1.100 from the
Ice wagon drivers. Other smaller contribu
tions have been received from various or
galsations.
President Donnelly today started out
nearly 100 solicitor's to obtain strike funds
from stock yards business men.

ST. LOUIS, Mo.. August 15.-The general

PATROLMEN ASAULTED.
Badly Used Up in Arresting a
Fighter.
NEW YORK, August 15.-Captain Lantry
and four patrolmen in the districts affected
by the beef strike were badly battered to
day before they succeeded in subduing and
placing under ai-rest a man who had made
a berce attack on several non-union men
employed by the Schwartsschild & Suls
berger company.
The man who, after he was arrested,
said that he was James Sullivan, a driver
for an express company, was standing in
the crowd near the Schwarschild & Suis
berger company's plant when suddenly he
dashed up the steps toward the ofmce and
assaulted two negroes, who were stand
ing there.
Several offcers, including Captain Lan
try, attempted to place the man under ar
rest, but it was not until after all of them
were pretty badly used up that Sullivan
was pounded into submission. When ar
raigned in court he said he was not a strik
er and admitted that he had been drinking.
He was fined $10 for disorderly conduct.

TREND OF CAMPAIGN
Democrat. Seem to Be Play
ing Down the Issues.
FORCING PERSONALITY
REPUBLICAY ]ANAGEBS WILL.
ING TO MEET TEAT.
But They Are Pushing the Question of
the Tariff and That of
Finance.
The two great parties are fairly started
on their campaign and the poi!ticians are
observing with some interest the trend
which the respective managers are endeav
oring to give the campaign. The democrats
seem to be bending most of their energies
o playing down the issues and playing up
the personality of the two candidates.
They are putting Judge Parker forward as
a safe if innocuous model of a President
and are attempting to make out President
Roosevelt the antithesis.
The democratic managers are saying very
little about the tariff, not as much as some
of their followers would desire about the
scuttle policy for the Philippines, and aie
as mum as an oyster on the money ques
tion. The impression prevails in some
quarters that the managers will stick to the
declaration of the St. Louis convention that
money is not an issue, and will leave the
voters to figure out for themselves where
the party stands between the two ex
tremes of Champ Clark's policy of "de
stroy the tariff, from turret to foundation
stone," and Judge Parker's lament, "We
won't hurt the tariff because we can't."
Republican Managers at Work.
The tepublican managers are accepting
the issue on the President's personality.
But they are not stopping at that; theY
are pushing the enemy on the question of
the tariff, on the democratic scuttle policy
in the Philippines and steadily and Insist
ently on the financial question.
Perusal of the emanations from the re
publican literary bureaus shows that the
republicans are hammering hgrd on the
tariff. They are insistent that behind the
vague assertions of the democratic candi
date is the old specter of insumcient pro
tection to Americ.+n industries and seem
determined to bring the skeleton of the
Wilson tariff times out into the light. The
republican campaign material of recent is
sue asserts that the controlling force of the
democracy, if it had possession of Con
gress, would not be the eastern conserva
tive sentiment, but the old Bourbon, fae
trade sentiment represented by the south
ern states and' the men of Champ Clark
and Honeke Cotran's type,
Some of the republican literature Just
at' hand aitoms that if the democrats
testrol of Congress. the overwhelm
the southern and south
tas b.Houe and eo
ate would the policies, of the party
over to that faction and wrest them from
the northern and eastern men. The de
duction is drawn that free trade would out
weigh "tariff revision."
The campaign literature of the repub
licans also goes strong on the money ques
tion and insists that notwithstanding the
gold telegram of Judge Parker. the depo
cratic party. in its rank and Die is still un
safe on sound money. A great deal of
stress is being laid on Judge Parker's letter
of acceptance in its tailure to be explicit
and the republicans .re holding up that
letter as alleged denial of the democratic
claims of his "safety."
Democrats Rehind the Opposition.
The democrats are considerably behind
the opposition in the matter of orgatnisa
tion. Some democrats have recently call
ed attentioni to the fact that conditions are
very unsatisfactory, in that respect, in
New York, which is the keystone of demo
cratic hope. The campaign for Judge Par
ker, in the empire state, is up to this time
in a very nebulous shape. Nobody seems to
be in command or to be caring v'ery much
and it is complained that the campaign is
running mainly on sentiment and general
principles, in the vague Idea that there is
a political revolution In the air,
The republicans for their part are very
much awakd'and in earnest in New York
and their machine is thoroughly organised
and running night and day. "We've got
to work," a New Yorker remarked today;
"its a ground hog case with us and we are
not going to depend on any 'undercurrenta'
or 'ground swells' or anything like that.
We've got to get up and dust, as they say
out west, and we are doing it."
DEAD L.IT NOW EIGRT-FOUE.
Last E1en Wrork Victim Is a District
Nan.
PUEBLO, Col., August 215.-Two more
bodies of victim of the Eden wreck have
been recovered, one being the i'emains of
Ray W. O'Bannon of Washington, D. C.
The body was found several miles down
the Arkansas river. -One body has bees
found twelve miles down the river, but has
not yet been identinied.
The finding of O'Bannon's body brings the
list of identified dead to eighty-four.
There is but one family hearing the name
O'Bannon in this city. .The seaidence. is at
1316 Corcoran street, Inquiries made there
this morning developed the fact that all
the members of the family are out ,of the
city, but that no one by the name' of Ray
W. O'Bannon or a "similar name resides
there. An employe of the Southern rail
way, who lives in the same house, said this
afternoon that he knew of so relative of
that name, and believes there must be am
error in the address given in the dispatch.
The name OBannon Is a rare one, and
ussually, it is said, some relationship may
be discovered. among those bearing It, but
at present the man reported as found deed
in the Nebraska river cannot be connected
with the familly In this city.
