Nov. 1L There has been a. heavy exchange of artillery fire at the Russian right center. The Russian bat teries began- shelling the Japanese trenches and the Japanese batteries re sponded. As a result of the heavy bombardment by the Russians the Japanese have with drawn some of their batteries from the advanced positions. It Is now bWIeved that, not being ready lo attack, they are falling hack to the hills. Tho Russians gained a great advantage, when, toward the end of the battle on Shakhe River, they recaptured Lone Tree Hill, which has since been renamed Pouti loff Bill, in honor of tho Colonel who led the last successful attack. During the bombardment "Wednesday 'night the Russians threw sixty large mel inite shells Into tho Japanese camp oppo site Mnnalon Hill. The Japanese, who, during the previous cannonading, seemed to have successfully used a searchlight directed against the Russian positions for the purpose of cov ering their operations at night In the ex tension Of their Held works In the region of the 'railway, did not reply Wednesday night when the Russians attacked them further to the cast. The Japanse are notably economical In the use of ammunition, as though antici pating an early battle, nben great quan tities will become necessary. JAPANESE PLACB GUNS. It is known that the Japanese have placed guns of large caliber In tho vicin ity of the Shakhe Railway station, bring ing Schltun. the next station to the north, within the range of their lire. The great precautions taken by the Rus sians, their continued vigilance, and the disposition of their forces' would seem to guarantee their army against any repeti tion of disasters of enormous magnitude. The Russian army is celebrating the dis tribution of presents of food, clothing and confectionery sent by the Empress to the officers and men. The Russians are hoisting manikins for the purpose of drawinc the Japaneso lire, and they also make a practice of bantcr-lng-tha Japaneso In others ways.

New Ydrk. Nov. TL-It te learned .here to-nlghtthat Admiral Dewey will 'accept. If offered, the position of American adviser on the North Sea tribunal. Great Britain has 'advised the Btate Department that aa American member of the'coBv "mlsnton. J desired, She and Miss Alice May Accom pany President on His Trip to St. Louis. EXPOSITION'S GREATEST DAY. Senator and Mrs. Fairbanks Have Been Invited to Join the Party Cabinet Officials to Attend. The Ttenubllo Bureau. Hth St and Pennsylvania At. Washington, Nov. 11. President Rooe velt's visit to the World's Fair has be come the absorbing topic in Washington, and, owing to tho fact that he is known to have Invited Senator and Mrs. Fair banks, It Is presumed that Mrs. Roosevelt and daughter. Miss Alice, will also be members of the party. Tho President has not yet had an op portunity to make up the personnel of his party, and It probably will be several days before definite announcement is made. Secretary Hitchcock and other members of the Cabinet expect to be In attendance, and the former said to-day that ho ex pected the, President's visit would be made a memorable event in the history of the Exposition and the city. . Many officials of the several departments also have expressed an earnest wish to be present. If possible, on November 26. It was the universal comment to-day that the day of the chief executive's visit will prove to be a banner day at the Exposi tion. It is hoped by many that it will be the greatest day in the history of the Fair. The United States Government Board for the "World's Fair has been asked to be present at the Fair on the day preceding tho 'President's visit to straighten up mat ters pertaining to the Government exhib its, and it is thought that they will remain over during the President's Btay. WILL PLAY SANTA CLAUS WITH MR. ROOSEVELT. While President Roosevelt may spend only one day at the "World's Fair, he will carry back to Washington a large num ber of souvenirs that will be constant reminders of his visit to the Exposition. When the State and foreign representa tives at the Fair yesterday learned of President Roosevelt's proposed isit there was a ripple of pleasure all over the grounds. "Now we can present to him personally all the gifts we intended tend ing him," they all said. And such a lot of "presents there will bo, too! "No Santa Claita ever was so loaded down with bundles and bags and mysterious-looking packages as President Roosevelt will be when he returns to Washington from his St. Louis trip. Everything from a handmade embroid ered handkerchief to a walking stick and meerchaum pipe reposes In tissue paper and satin-lined cafe under lock an.1 Kej at the World's Pair waiting the arrival of the chief magistrate. If President Roosevelt learns of the surprise in store for him. ho probably will have a special car attached to his special train to carry his many gifts back to Washington. The rivalry to present the ham'ome?t article to the President Is equaled only by the rivalry among the various Commis sioners to entertain the chief executive at a luncheon, dinner or reception "Kng his visit to -St Louis. Many requests wore made to CTtJt-nr Thompson, secretary to President Fran cis, to learn if such functions could not bo arranged. INVITE ROOSEVELT TO VISIT CHICAGO. Chicago, Nov. 11. An Invitation will be extended to President Roosevelt to In clude Chicago In his Itinerary on the oc casion of his visit to tho Louisiana Pur chase Exposition. A monster demonstra tion here Is planned in the event the In vitation is accepted. A delegation, headed by Wallace Heck man, president of the Union League Club, and Including representatives of the lead ing Chicago clubs, .will leave at once to convey compliments of the city and lay the plan beforo the President. An invitation will also be extended to Vice President-elect Fairbanks to bo the city's guest at the same time. The same delegation that waits upon President Roosevelt will wait on his run ning mate. WARMER WEATHER IN SIGHT. Forecaster Sees Fairer Skies and Moderated Temperature, The wintry conditions which have pre vailed for the past few days are at an end, according to Forecaster Bowie, who predicts that the clouds will roll by and the freezing temperature will be succeed ed by increasing warm weather. The minimum temperature for tills morning was set at 25 degrees, at which point the thermometer will begin its upward jour ney, and continue, to climb at least until Sunday night The official forecast is: Fair Saturday and Sunday; rising temperature Saturday and Sunday; fresh northerly winds, shift ing to southerly Saturday. THANKSGIVING SPECIAL On November 24 The Republic will issue a Special Thanksgiving Edition. A valuable contribution will be a message of counsel from CHARLES WAGNER, Author of ''The Simple Life," and spokesman of plain faith in God and man. His gospel of pure manhood is appealing to millions to-day. Republicans Fighting to Prevent Factional Fight of Former Years on Senatorship. GARDNER DECLARES HIMSELF. Says Senatorial Nomination Should Be Settled Soon so Laws May Be Enacted for PartT's Good. With the election only four days past. Republicans already are wondering whether they will have an organlzatlon spUttlng fight for tho United States sen atorship or a settlement of a situation that Is the first stumbling block for the new majority In the General Assembly. Friends of State Chairman Thomas K. NIedringhaus think they see a settlement of tho fight Already they are talking bandwagon In a nay that Is very persua sive to any. politician of average sense. That their talk is based on reports that have already been received from tho coun try Is the most encouracinz feature of the developments. One of the newly elected Senators from the country, A. B. L. Gardner, of the Twenty-nfth District, was In the city yes terday, and at tho Stnte headquarters. "I have served In the House two terras," he said, "and I know the foolishness to the party of any prolonged fight over the senatorship. The minority light his al ways been a disgrace to party Interests. "I want to say right now that Lam for Mr. NIedringhaus for United States Sen ator. I want it off of my mind so that we can get together and pass some of the laws we have been talking about for the last twenty years. Mr. NIedringhaus has succeeded In keeping down this factional ism during the best campaign -wo bve had. He Is the first man to do so. "The logical thing to do. the sensible thing, is to prevent a repetition of former factional lights by supporting the only leader who has kept them out of the party organization. I see that the members elect from the city have already pledged themselves to Mr. NIedringhaus for this same reason. Wo people of tho country are ready to Join them on the proposition and hope that It will be ended sooner rather than later." -TO PREVENT FACTIONALISM. Two or .three other members elect were In from tho country yesterday. In a day or so they will declare openly for Mr. NIedringhaus. Walter S. Dickey of Kan sas City was in St Louis yesterday, and, though he would not talk for publication, he remained at headquarters In consulta tion with the friends of tho State chair man. Afterwards It was said that the 'our Kansas City members would support Mr. NIedringhaus in the end, though at present thev havo said that they favored Major William Warner. Jeptha D. Howe Is In charge of the NIedringhaus campaign, and Is consulting with the other friends of the State chair man. He thinks the movement will re sult in success within the next few days. "While the voluntary pledges of the members-elect from tho city are signifi cant" he said yesterday, "we attach par ticular wblght to the members-elect from the country. We have received letters from several of them saying that they wished to prevent another factional fight In tho party by supporting Mr. Nledring haui Two called me up over the long distance telephone. "Most of the men who have been help ing at the headquarters of the State Com mittee, as well as the district organizers, are from tho country. To a man they are Tor Mr. NIedringhaus. They know who did the work In this campaign, and they do not wish to see the opportunity of putting the party on a good basli frit tered away by u renewal of a factional tight Wo have carried Missouri, and If vc act sensibly there is no reason why we should not keep It In the Republican column." KERENS IS BUSY. "On the other hand, former National Committeeman R. C. Kerens is not sleep ing on his beat He thinks that the suc cession of minority indorsement for the senatorial nomination is not sufficient henor, and he Is out In earnest for the first real thing that has come into the Republican camp. During the last campaign he played smoothly by remaining out of sight He had finally learned that his open appear ance in the political field would be the Blgnal that would arouse tho friends of good government everywhere. At the same time he sent out campaign checks to tho Republican nominees with the sen atorship In view.' Wednesday he sent out telegrams to about twenty-five of his friends, asking them to meet him in St Louis yesterday. E. Livingstone Morso of Excelsior Springs was practically the only one to show up. He conferred with Colonel Kerens, visited the State headquarters, button-holed a number of out-of-town Republicans and became busy generally. Still. Kerens Is no quitter, and no ono knows It better than his numerous old supporters, who are now glad to get rid of him for the sake of tho party. Correct Figures in Full or in Pluralities for All Counties Give Folk 30,000 Over Walbridge and Roosevelt 15,500 Over Parker Ru- bey, Highest Man on State Ticket, 8,000 Behind McKinley. Corrected returns. Including totals or pluralities from every county In the State, give Hoosovelt 15,57:: plurality and Folk 3,936. John C. McKinley, the lowest man on the Republican State ticket, .excepting Governor, by these figures 'gets 8,175 over Thomas L Rubey. These returns give the nearest possible, approximation of the total vote cast It will be seen that Parker runs more than 30,000 behind Brjan In the same counties. Roosetelt runs 12,000 ahead of McKlnIeyB vote of 1000. When the total vote has been secured, the total vote of 1000 has been Inserted In the 1900 column. When pluralities of this year are used, pluralities of 1900 aro used to correspond. It will be an InteresUng problem for some tlmo to come, explaining the big Democratic losses and tho Republican gales. Populist and Socialist figures are not Included in the reports sent in, but these, it Is believed, will show Increases over four years ago. No&awtiy County, for Instance cast 4,055 votes for Bryan and only 1,370 for Parker. It also cast 3.S5S for McKinley and 3,874 for Roosevelt, a slight gam, but not enough to account for the Democratic loss. Nodaway has man Populists, and It fs plain that either they did not vote or they balloted for their Populist nominee. All the counties of tho northwest, near the Kansas line, show tlfa tremendous Dcmociatlc slump, and tho Republican In crease by no mums corresponds. It will bo noted that the falling off Is al most as great in the counties of long time Democratic strength Monroe, Au drain, Pike, Boone, Callaway, Clay Platte, etc It may be coincidence, but the heaviest percentage of slump, excepting that of Nodaway, conies from the western center of the State, whero bitterness was created By the Democratic gubernatorial prima ry. REPUBLICANS JUBILANT. Republicans were at that high mark of post-election Jubilant exultation ester day. Tho chiefs of departments at the headquarters were even announcing poli cies for the Legislature Aside from the speakership, senatorship and tho other Jobs of varying Importance, they are to put all their law era to work drafting bills. Apparently thtir Idea is to lit out Mtuourl with an entirely new set of stat utes. Tho evidences of cheer were not so plen tiful at the Democratic ofUccs in the Equitable building.

It will re quire this time to close up tho commit tee's campaign business. Chairman Evans and Hal Woodslde, secretary of the Ex ecutive Committee, will remain to attend to these matters. Joseph McCoy, Charles E. Morris, E. C Broltmejer and the other factotums at Republican headquarters did nor find that figuring returns was so entirely unsatis factory. They still had a corps of ac countants at It yesterday and found great pleasure In the results. The Republican managers claimed La mar's defeat by Murphy and the returns as received in St Louis indicates that this vote was exceedingly close with Mur phy a trlflo In tho lead. But a wire from the secretary of Mr. Lamar's committee announced his election last night This is regarded as accurate. OULESBV IS CHEERFUL. "Rube" Oglesby waa the only defeated Democratic candidate In town jeaterday, and altogether he was the most cheerful man of the party to be found. He de clares that he who fights and takes his beating with good grace may live to fight another day. Of tho buccessful Republicans, Bert D. Norton! was more than conspicuous by his presence. Nortonl is congratulating himself that ho did not get the appoint ment as Attorney General of the Post Olilca Department as successor to Tyner, the Washington position which he nar rowly escaped landing last spring. As It Is, he got altogether the best elective office of the ticket In point of remunera tion and duration. He maintains that nothing Is so satisfactory as getting on tho top side of a landslide, since under such conditions you may wake up next morning and find yourself comfortably fixed for life. "I told you no," Is the poor phrase In sistently used by many at this time. By it Republicans mean that Missouri now has a Republican majority. Returns hardly bear out Uie contention. Anal sis of total returns will show enly a net Re publican gain over past elections of about 3 per cent in votes cast One per cent of this may reasonably come through Immi gration. Tha remainder, clearly from the llgures, consiato In Democratio votes cast direct for Roosevelt as expressive of dis satisfaction with the nomination of Par- ker. Lieut-Gov. 13CO- Walb'ge. Rubev.

JUDGMENTS Representative States the Property of the Trac tion Company Has ' Been Sold. NO ASSETS TO SATISFY SUITS. Damage Cases Aggregating ?2, 000,000 Pending Against the Corporation Hay Be Nul lified SYNDICATE HAD PRIOR CLAIM. Charter of the Absorbed Concern Can Only Be Abrogated by Court United Railways Obligation Denied. Representatives of claimants having ac tion pending for judgments against the St Louis Transit Company iave been onti fled that the Transit Company has no funds with which to satisfy claims against It. It Is stated that "he Transit Company having sold all of Its assets to satisfy the prior obligation due Brown Bros. & Co. of New York, it now exists as a cor poration without assets, and all execu tions against it will be returned nulla bona. As suits amounting In the aggregate to JtSOO.OOO "are pending against the Transit Company for injuries alleged to have re sulted from accidents on the property of the company, as well as other claims. It is believed that these claimants probably win ask the court to summon the own' era of the Transit Company to appear and satisfy the court 03 to the lack of tho company's assets, following which ac tion may be taken before a court of equity to decide on the obligation of the owners of the property 'ormerly owned by the Transit Company. W. P. Palmer, general claim agent of the United Railways Company, In a let ter yesterday to William E. Fish, repre senting Mrs. O. Williams, who held a claim against tha St Louis Transit Com pany, states that the St Louis Transit Company has surrendered its lease- and gone out of business, leaving no funds to saUsfy pending claims against it Regarding the obligations of the Transit Company, James Campbell, the broker and representative of the Brown Bros, of New York, said last night: 'The' Transit Company has sold Its sets to the Brown Bros, syndicate, and has nothing left with which to satisfy claims." Murray Carlcton. president of the Transit and United Railways companies. said that, while he had notinVcstlgated uic iiiiier iu uciuji, nur was auie lu give a legal opinion upon It be did not believe that the United Railways Company is morally or legally obligated for the claims against the Transit Company. Judge Henry S. Priest, attorney for the Transit Company, declined to make a statement, as Md Fred Lehmann. STCLL EXISTS. Officials cf the United Hallways Com pany and the Brown Bros, syndicate con tend that while the Brown Bros, syndi cate has bought all of the assets of the Tiansit Company, the Transit company has not casiid out of existence, but holds Its charter, which can only be dissolved by an order of court It Is cci.ter.ded that the fact that the tompany has no existence does not make the syndicate which purchased the assets of the company liable. Further, that the Transit Company owed the syndicate near ly $7,000,000, w hich it was unable' to pay, and It took the alternative of selling to the syndicate to going into bankruptcy, and that the claim of the syndicate was a prior claim to those having claims for damages against tne company. As regards tho liability of the United Railways Company it is contended that the United Railways Company docs not in effect own the Transit Company, it being stated that the Brown Bros. syndicate bought large holdings of Uni ted Railways common from tliat company. In substance, the general statement is made that the Brown Bros, syndicate owns the assets of the Transit Company, which It took to satisfy claims against the company, and while the United Rail ways will operate the property, the real control of the property rests with the syndicate. If tho contention of the promoters of the deal by wlilch tho assets of the Transit Company have passed to the syn dicate is sustained, many persons who have claims for damages against tho Transit Company, amounting In all to nearly J2.000.OO0, will be unable to get ex ecution upon their Judgments. Practically the only claims which can be collected against tho company under these conditions would be those which have been appealed by the company and for which the company has been required to furnish bond to double the amount of the original Judgment A prominent lawyer, who has had much experience In damage suits, stated last evening that, in" hi? opinion, claim ants for Judgments against the Transit could get judgment and execution on the 'property, which has been disposed of by the Transit company. He stated that while almost Intermlna- ble litigation may be necessary for the claimant to gain a Judgment against the holders of this property that undoubted ly, if persisted in, the Judgment could be obtained.
