Mukden. 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

EXPOSITION'S GREATEST DAY.
Senator and Mrs. Fairbanks Have
Been Invited to Join the
Party Cabinet Officials
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

Many requests wore made to CTtJt-nr
Thompson, secretary to President Fran
cis, to learn if such functions could not
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
WARMER WEATHER IN SIGHT.
Forecaster Sees Fairer Skies and
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
The official forecast is: Fair Saturday
and Sunday; rising temperature Saturday
and Sunday; fresh northerly winds, shift

On November 24 The Republic will issue a
Special Thanksgiving Edition. A valuable
contribution will be a message of counsel from

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
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

That their talk is based on reports that
have already been received from tho coun

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

"On the other hand, former National

had finally learned that his open appear

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

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

heaviest percentage of slump, excepting
that of Nodaway, conies from the western

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
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
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
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.
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
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
Injnred br as Car.
