Every Indica- , tlon points to tha probability that there will be a tremendous battla within the next two or three (Says, either at Mukden, Uao-Yang or Hal-Cheng. The Russian seems to bt In the dark as to the exact position and movements of the advancing Japanese army, but it is known that the divisions under General Kurokl, alter leaving Fung-Wang-Chen. divided Into three bodies. One of these moved far enough north to menace Muk den, but how well it is supported is not known here. Another body started toward Iiao-Tang, and the third toward Hil Cheng. It also appears that a very large body of Japanese is moving from the vicinity of Taku-Shan toward the northwest. This body is probably under the command of General Oku. According to native reports, there are now upward of 135.000 Japanese troops, in Southern Manchuria, fully equipped with heavy guns and other war material. At the rate of advance at last accounts, they should be in the immediate vicinity of the railroad by Baturday or Sunday. It is surmised that a simultaneous attack at two or more points may be delivered. It is believed here that the main body of Russians Is assembled at Mukden and that the force at Hal-Cheng will be with drawn as soon as the supplies from NIu chwang are made safe or destroyed. The entire Russian force then probably will retire toward Harbin, unless in the mean time the Japanese deliver their attack. Tho approach of the rainy season, which will begin m about six weeks, may hasten .operations, the Japanese especially desir ing to become well established before operations become too difficult. Tha Russians, as they retire, are burn ing everything that wouldj be of alue to the Japanese, and much suffering among the native population has resulted. 'Communication between Port Arthur and Mukden Is again completely interrupted both by railroad and telegraph. It Is learned here, by way of Shanghai, that 70.000 Japanese troops left Chlnnampo on board transports May i. They were crowded as closely as possible, and It is believed that at least part.

This, added to the extraordinary power they display In concealing their move ments In a number of places at which landing Is reported, and the great number of small detachments turning up at Unex pected places, all serve to cause a resist ing of the enemy's advance to be a matter of considerable perplexity to the war council. PEACE IN SIGHT IN THE FAR EAST? Berlin. May 13. It Is stated on excellent authority that there Is a strong possibility of peace. What makes the ntws doubly Interesting Is the fact that the war party has urged the Czar to end the struggle. The basis of settlement Is to be the Inde pendence of Korea under the protectorate of Japan, and Manchuria, to remain Chi nes territory. In a secret treaty between China and Japan the Integrity of Man churia has been guaranteed by Japan. It is also stated that Russia, wishes to come to an understanding with Japan ln tmesdently of England. ssssss TENDS TO HASTEN MOVEMENTS.

Several Delegates Refuse to Vote in Favor, hut Reconsider When Told "Xo" Meant For feiture of Of lice. At last night's meeting of the House ot Delegates the general appropriation bill, which provides for the pajment of mu nicipal salaries, was passed. The City Council, which had taken a recess to sign the bill, received the measure for Presi dent Homsby's signature, after which the bill was returned to the House and signed by Speaker Gazzolo. The measure will be forwarded to Mayor Wells this morning, and probably will be come a law before evening, thereby mak ing the payment of salaries possible either Monday or Tueday. Considerable merriment prevailed at the House meeting over taking the vote od the police appropriation bill When the roll was called Delegate EJward Block startled the Assembly by xotlng "no." Immediately afterwards, however, he re considered. Delegates McAullffe and Stoops votd "no" when their names were called. Dele gate McAullffe made a speech declaring that If he was compelled to vote a certain way there was no use of his being present at meetings, as, ho said, his constituents would be Just as well represented If. he stayed away, if that were the case. When Delegate Wledmtr's turn to vote came around he aked if It was mandatory to vote for the bill. He was Informed that it was. according to law. "Then I vote for the bill," he said. "I don't want to break the law." "Tou haven't any backbone at all," shouted McAullffe. Delegate WItthoefft refused to answer when his name was first called. "I wish to be excused. Mr. Speaker," he said. "But you must ote. Mr. Wltthoefft; the law requires it." RECONSIDER THEIR VOTE Delegate William Block moved that Mr. Wltthoefft be excused. Tho motion was seconded "When put to a vote, however. It was the wish of the House that the vote be recorded. "If T have to vote, why I vote aye," declared Mr. Wltthoefft. "but I do so undr protest." Speaker Pro Tem McCarthy aroe and Informed all presnt that to vote "no" was tantamount to a forfeiture of tbIr office with liability to Imprisonment. The o'e was then announced by the clerk j IS to 2. When Speaker Ganolo received the slip to announce the final vote, however. Delegates Stoops and Mc Aullffe reconsidered and the measure was carried unanimously. A bill regulating the per cent rate of tax was passed, as was a measure to pro vide for the payment of the city's debt with Interest. KEELEY MURDER MYSTERY. A False Report of a Long Tast Occurrence Corrected. Some time ago reports appeared In news papers of Illinois, which were copied In The Republic and other papers here, pur porting to explain the mystery of the murder of Jacob Keeley. w ho was shot on September 11, 1SS. as he sat at his Jcsk lit his drug store, late at night. An arrest was made at the time, but there wps no incriminating evidence against the person arrested and he was released. In January last reports began to appear in Illinois newspapers to the effect that Mrs. Nancy Brown, at Waco. Tex., con fessed upon "ier deathbed that she had committed the crime. The name of Mrs. Nancy Brown was not the name of any body connected In anywise with the Kee ley family, but other statements in the reports showed that Mrs. Nancy Morrison, wife of Charlejs W. Morrison of Waco, Tex., was meant, because it was stated that Mrs. Nancy Brqwn was a sistr of Mrs. Keeley r.nd that her maiden name was Miss Nancy Clark. These circumstances are true of Mrs. Morrison, and evldontly she was the per son who was meant by the author of the reports. There was no truth In the re ports, except the fact that Jacob Keeley was killed at Bock Bridge. III., on Sep tember 11. 1&S. and that Miss Nancy Clark (now Mrs. Nancy Morrison) was a sister of Mrs. Keeley. So far from her having made any death bed confession, she was not on her death bed, but, on the contrary. Is alive and well, and not only has made no confes sion, but has never been Implicated In any manner In the crime. Who Is the author of the reports, and what was the object In circulating them at this late day, has not been discovered, but they are cruelly unjust to Mrs. Mor rison, and It is to be hoped that all who aided in any manner, however Innocently, In giving currency to them wUl assist as much In making correction. E CABS CAUSE E One Man Killed and Four Hurt Recently as Result of De crease in Space. PEDESTRIANS MUST LOOK OUT. General Manager McCulloch of the Transit Company Warns the Public of Increased Dan ger Between Passing Cars. ACCIUKSiTS ATTRIBUTED s s TO WIDEXISQ OF CARS. s April 2-James H. Good of Hot s Springs. Ark., killed between two cars at Twelfth and Olive streets. Fred J. Kin?, seriously bruised In the same accident. May 6 Henry J. Moehlman of No. 4 2211 Olive street attempted to throw a cigar from window of an Olive street car at Twelfth and Olive, the scene of former accidents, and sustained fracture of the left arm. May 8 John Stnink or No. 3321 Cote Brllllante avenue, while lean- s ing from rear platform of an Eas- s ton nvenue car, was struck by a passing car and sustained fractured s) skull. May 12 Charles Colter, mining s s engineer, of No. E708 Von Versen s avenue, caught between Market O and Laclede avenue cars at Union s s Station; patient still in City Hos- 4 pltal with fractured pelvis, clavicle and ribs. Ssssssss4sssss4ssB Five street car accidents, one terminat ing fatally, and all of which resulted In serious Injuries, arising from the narrow space between passing cars on the St. Louis streets have attracted the attention of tho public as well as the railway offi cials to the serious menace to human lite. World's Fair conditions are largely ac countable for these accidents, and the of ficiate of the Transit Company are quite alive to the dangers arising from them. Robert McCulloch. general manager of the St. Louis Transit Company, said; "Pedestrians cannot possibly hope to escape Injury If they attempt to stand between passing cars. The fault is not entirely ours. The average width between" the cars on downtown streets Is not more than twelve or fifteen inches'. Nowhere Is It two reel. That distance would be suffi cient to prevent trouble, but to get thut distance we would have to go back to the old-time horse cars. The people of St. Louis demand, as they do in ail large cities, cars large enough to carry big crowds. "Yon cannot provide that with ample aisle room without building your cars wide. No one deplores accidents more than we do. but to meet the public demand for large cars we must build wide, and the only thing Is for the public to learn that It must not take chances by getting be tween passing cars." The attention of Manager McCulloch was called to the accidents that had resulted from persons putting their arms over the low window guard rails that now protect them. That Is a matter that we are endeavor ing to remedy as fast as the mechanical department can do It. The guard rails as they exist at present will be doubled In height at once. We did not believe that It was necessary to make them higher, but experience has taught us better." ROSEBUD OPENING AUGUST 8. Drawing to Take Place at Cham berlain, S. D., July 28. Washington.

TO STUDY BRIDGE SITUATION. Secretary of War Will Decide St. Louis Merger Question. Tn Republic Bureso. 14th St. and Pennsr lvtnls Ave. Washington, May 12. When seen to-day by The Republic correspondent. Brigadier General George H. Davis, Judge Advocate General of the Army, said he was not greatly surprised at the decision of the Missouri Supreme Court. He bad thought. however, that Attorney General Crow had a good case against the St, Louis Ter minal Railway Association. Asked when action would be taken by the department. General Davis said Secre tary Taft would take up the matter very soon after his return from the Adlron Jacks. The. Secretary departed yesterday, to be gone about ten days. General Davis had not read the decision of the Missouri Supreme Court, and said It would be examined thoroughly before any action Is taken. As stated In Tha Repub lic, when the Merchants' Bridge agitation was first called to the attention of the de partment. It is an entirely new matter, there being no precedent upon which to base action.

CONVENTION TAKES RECESS. Adjournment Is Forced by Speak er Cannon, Irrespective of th t .Wishes of Many Delegates, j NIGHT CONFERENCES HELD. Chairman Warns Against Repeti tion of the Wild Scenes in Which Mrs. Yates Had a Narrow Escape From Se rious Injury. p STANDING OF CANDIDATES IN THE ILLINOIS RACE. The fifteenth ballot for the guber natorial nomination, the last taken before the adjournment of the Illi nois Republican state Convention last night, resulted as follows: Lowden 406 1-2 Deneen ............ 381 9-tS Hamlin m Sherman a Warner 85 Pierce n m, REPUBLIC SPECIAL. Springfield, III., May 1J. The Repub lican State Convention Is In a deadlock tn Its efforts to nominate a candidate for Governor. After a continuous session, lasting front 10 o'clock this morning until 10:10 o'clock to-night, during which fifteen ballots were taken. It appears as If no headway has been made toward the final choice. There have been trades and combina tions, all slight, -and beyond for tha mo ment slightly decreasing the lead of Gov ernor Tates, they have proved Ineffectual. Rioting has marked the convention, es pecially the evening session, when a Low den supporter, who was trying to carry a biloner A tl.s speaker's stand, restated a policeman who attempted to arrest him. The policeman, was knocked over and fell upon Mrs. Richard Tates. Springfield has not gone to bed for thlrtr hours, and appears to be willing to star up as long as the Intense excitement lasts. ADJOURNMENT FORCED OX TATES BY CAlfJIOX. After the stormy night session Chairman Cannon forced Governor Tates to agree to an adjournment untU to-morrow mornme by threatening to arbitrarily adjourn the convention himself on account of tha noise and confusion. whlch(prevented th secretaries hearing the responses to tha roll call. The last ballot was practically tha same as the third, and there was little difference between the vote on all the others. Cm the last ballot Governor Yates had 4W: Lowden. 405; .Deneen. Ml: Hamlin. Ill: Sherman. 51: Warner, M; and Pierce, O. The third ballot gave Tates lour mora votes. Lowden nine less, and tha rest were practically the same as the third ballot. Governor Yates started off with 507. Lowden with S34. Deneen 384, Hamlin 121. Sherman 87, Warner 45. and all dropped a few votes on each ballot except Lowden. who gained what the others lost, until Lowden reached 48. which was his max imum. The balance never reached the strength they developed en the first ballot. I.EADEnS WERE USABLE TO STAMPEDE DELEGATES. To-morroWs developments are anxious ly awaited. Strenuous efforts were made during the day and night to break Into the various delegations, without success. Attempts to break from Tates by the sen atorial and congressional combination were Ineffective. The leaders reported that they could not .induce the delegates to leave Governor Yates, notwithstand ing they brought all the pressure they possibly could on them. Hopkins wanted Cannon to make tha break first, and Cannon's delegation ! tied to Hamlin. Cannon insisted that Hop kins should turn Kano County away from Yates first, and Snapp and Fuller wera re luctant to stnrt the gam. They said It waa not easy and that Tates had a pretty strong hold -on their delegations. He has been calling the In dividual delegates to the Executive-Mansion and to his headquarters In Chicago, and binding them by all kinds of pledsss and promises, until they were to-day as solid as adamant. It was agreed that when the convention adjourned to-night it was In a hopeless deadlock, with no chance of a break, even if tho balloting continued until daylight. Nevertheless Governor Tates protested against adjournment with all bis might. He believed tha he could force the Low den side to break ranks and nominate him If he could tire them out. For hours be fore adjournment the Governor's leaders becsed him to consent to a recess, but be was deaf to all their appeals and stub bornly persisted In continuing the ballot ing. As all the other candidates hrpg to benefit from a Tates break none -of them cared to force a recess against Ma wishes. YATES'S POSITION XOT AS STROXG A3 -FORMERLY- The situation to-night Is strained. Tha Governor does not stand In qqlte as favor, able a position as he did last night. The delegates themselves don't like the way In which he compelled them to remain In tha hot convention hall, and the fear that ha will prove a weak candidate before the people Is being worked on all his shaky adherenta So far he has maintained his position against two United States Sen ators, the Sneaker of the national House, and half a dozen' Influential Congressmen It Is useless to attempt a prediction as to what will take place to-morrow; except that it still looks as though the conven tion would have to take Us choice between Contlaaest Pa- Xtraa FiJ ,3 f "A H 'it S-J o H ' fV? .
