By delay in pressing nis pursue
Russia's defeated and demoralized army
to Tie Pass. Field Marshal Oyama has
- afforded General juropawu
port out the disorganized units of his
command and restore his forces to at
least a semblance of order. So far as
known, there is no considerable force
of Japanese nearer Tie pass than six
or eight miles; but in Russian quar
ters there is a feeling of apprehension
that some turning movement, of which
there is no definite Information is in
progress. From Japanese sources It is
reported that many straggling parties
of Russians, cut Off from their com-
mands In the retreat from Mukden,

la reported to have decided yesterday
that the war must be carried forward.
The all-important question of financial
means, however, is said to nave readi
ed no solution, the situation being com
plicated by the reported decision of
French capitalists not to negotiate the
, loan recently offered by St. Petersburg.
The probability as regarded in St. Pet
ersburg seems to be that when General
Kuropatkln has completed the task of
reorganizing what is left of his army,
he will be permitted to return to Rus
sia and that the command in Manchu-,
ria will he entrusted to General Suk
liomllmoff, whose war apprenticeship
was served under General Dragomiroff,
who has been regarded as the foremost
of Russia s scientinc soldiers. 11 is pos
' sible, however, that the command will

A BOLD WAY OUT.
Snggcstion That Might Lend to Settle
ment of Russia's Trouble.
St. Petersburg,' 'March 15 12:30 a. m.
A bold way out of the perplexities of
the present situation has been sug
gested, namely,- that Emperor Nicholas
travel in state to the anciept capital
of Moscow, summon 1 the nobles and
leading members of the zemstvos
around him in tlfe sacred precincts of
the Kremlin, frankly lay the situation
before them, publicly pledge his word
for the execution of the propected re
forms and make a stirring personal ap
peal through them to the people to loy
ally rally to the support of the Russian
arms and co-operate in prosecuting the
war to a successful termination
Such a personal appeal from the sov
ereign undoubtedly would have a pow
erful effect throughout the country,
and for the dynasty would have an ad
vantage over the plan of submitting
the question of peace or war to the
eemsky sobor, which some of the news
papers are again urging. -
Criticism on the conduct of the war
which has been appearing in the news-,
papers has been aggravated by General
Kuropatkln's defeat, and is now the
most outspoken character. The Russ
fromally abandons all hope for the suc
cess of the war under the present re
gime, sarcastically pointing out that
the administration, In its desire to pro
vide Vladivostok with clal, is supplying
the Japanese fleet.
REVOLT BY FRENCH BANKERS.
Their Probable Refusal to Flont An
other Russian Loan.
London, March 14 The revolt of the
French bankers against the proposed
Russian loan is considered by the Lon
don newspapers as tne most hopeful
and important news of the day, prom
ising an .early conclusion of peace be
tween : Russia and Japan. Apparently
the proposed loan has not been abso
lutely refused, but only "postponed."
This, however, is regarded here as be
ing tantamount to a refusal, and is ex
pected to speak louder to the Russian
war party even than General Kuro
patkln's reverse at Mukden. It is the
general belief that by the death of M.
Germain, late governor of the Credit
Lionaise, Russia lost her strongest fi
nancial friend in France and that had
lie been alive no difficulty would have
been experienced. With the American
and English markets closed to her, it
is thought that Russia can only turn
to Germany,' who is not likely to be
much more responsive than France,
and the only alternative would seem to
be to make peace.
Reports are current here that Japan
will now demand an indemnity of be
tween $500tooo,ooa and. 5750,0O0t00Q,,: V

REY. J, F. CORDOYA GUILTY
OF ABANDONING WIFE
VERDICT OF JURY AFTER SIX
Accused Minister Greatly Shaken
Will Probably be Sentenced Saturday
Extreme Penalty One Year Sec
ond Indictment Quickly Taken Up
Will Now be Tried for Arnault and
Battery on Mm Cordova The Jury,
Chosen in Short Order. I
New Brunswick, N. J-, March It
After six hours' deliberation the jury
which tried J. F. Cordova, the former
South River, N. J., minister, who elop
ed with Julia Bowne, one of" his choir
singers, on a charge of "abandoning his
wife, came into court to-night with a
verdict of "guilty as Indicted.",
Cordova appeared to be greatly shak
en by the verdict. He probably will be
.sentenced on Saturday. The extreme
penalty is imprisonment for one year.
As soon as the 'case was given to the
jury this afternoon the second indict
ment against the ex-minister was call
ed. It accuses him of assault and bat-
: tery upon his wife. She and her four-
i teen-year-old daughter will be the prin
cipal witnesses. A Jury was selected
and the takingi of testimony will begin
i to-morrow morning.
When the trial was resumed to-day
, Cordova, who was on the stand when
court adjourned, yesterday, resumed his
testimony. He was subjected to a se
vere cross-examination by Prosecutor
Berdine, who tried to bring' out that
Cordova In his trips to Philadelphia,
Camden, Canada, Mexico and other
places was accompanied' by Julia
Bowne. The efforts to make the former
pastor admit that Miss Bowne was his
companion on these journeyings were
j thwarted" by the defendant, however,
' as he declined to answer to this line of
questioning on i the ground that he
might incriminate himself. He appeal
ed to Judge Strong, who said that he
nerid not answer questions that might
Mr. Cook,' counsel for Cordova, then
took 'the witness in hand and elicited a
! statement that Cordova had been In the
I habit of giving his wife all his salary,
with the exception of $10 a month. The
prosecutor objected to the Introduction
of letters received by Cordova from his
wife while he was in Mexico, and was
sustained by Judge Strong, who said:
"Even if these letters declared tnafH
was not iiecessary for the defendant to
stint himself; and to cease remitting;
funds home, I would charge the jury,
not to allow such a fact to quash the
Indictment, for this Is an action brought
1 by the state "of New Jersey against the
defendant, and does not concern mere
ly Mr. and Mrs. Cordova alone. For-
' giveness by Mrs. Cordova does not Im
ply forgiveness by the state of New
Jersey." ' : -i. '.",-.,,- '.,,:.";
After Cordova had testified that he
directed his wife to sell $700 worth of
property and apply the proceeds to her
personal needs the defense rested. . ,
In summing up Prosecutor Berdine
scored the former minister unmerciful
ly, and once Cordova" leaped from his
seat in fury, sinking back again when
the spectators Tiowled at him and
shouted, "Sit down.'" The close of the
prosecutor's address was hailed with
cheering, which the,.court officers could
not suppress. '
! Judge Strong's charge was brief, and
he emphasized the point that the pris
oner tould not be excused because he
had sent money to his wife. As soos as
. the jury had retired Prosecutor Berdine
called for the opening of Cordova's" trial
onj a second todictment, charging as
sault on his wife. Counsel for the pris
oner asked that it be put over until to
morrow, but Judge Strong refused.
The new jury was quickly chosen and
efter the prosecutor had made a short
sddress an adjournment was taken un
til 10:30 to-morrow morning. Mrs. Cor
dova will be the first witness called by

Honolulu, March 14. President David
Starr Jordan, of Stanford -university,
has emphatically expressed the opinion
that Mrs. Stanford's death was not due
to strychnine poisoning. He says that
when he became familiar with her
.symptoms he reached that conclusion.
He is a doctor of medicine and says
that since he has , learned that the
amount of strychnine taken by Mrs.
Stanford was , not beyond a medical
dose he is more sure than ever that she
was not poisoned. Dr. Jordan has been
assisting the detectives, to the extent of
suggesting questions as a physician,
during their inquiries regarding her
symptoms and. the results of the au
topsy. . .. , : . .

to adjourn at 2 o'clock to-morrow, and
the senators will attend the funeral of

His Left Which He Thought Threat
ened by Kogl. ,
- Tie Pass, March 14. As after the bat
tie of Liaoyang, the advance of the
Japanese army against the new posi
tions of the Russians at Tie Pass is
very slow.' " The leading columns are
eight or ten miles: southward, and in.
touch with the Russian van posts, but
the operations at present are not seri
ous. Field Marshal Oyama shows slight
intention of pressing his advantage in
an immediate attack on Tie Pass. It is
possible, however, that a wide turning
movement, of which reports are cur
rent, Is in progress! iiln such operations
the Japanese have the immense advan
tage of several bases and lines of sup
ply, to which is now added the Slnmln
tin road, while the Russian army nec
essarily is dependent on one base and
one line of communications, and there
fore may be easily outflanked. ',
In the grand army order is being
brought out of chaos with remarkable
celerity. ? The plain in ' front of Tie
Pass, which on March 11 seethed like a
nest of ants with the dense and con
fused mass of transports, artillery and
troops, corps, divisions and regiments
being scattered and parties inextrica
bly mingled, has been cleared, the reg
iments reorganized, stragglers sent to
their ' respective commands, organiza
tions taking their assigned positions,
and to-day the same soldiers who on
March 10 became a terror-stricken,
surging, disorganized mass of gray at a
few shots from a little detachment of
Japanese, or who even fled in panic,
firing indiscriminately In all directions,
as they ran, at the mere baseless cry
of "Japanese cavalry," are now gather

It is unfair to accuse the entire army
of this panic. General LInevitch enter
ed ,Tie Pass with his regiments In per
fect order, with music playing and the
men singing, and scarcely a straggler
was lost In the long, difficult march.
Other organizations made equally
praiseworthy retreats, and especially

performed their difficult task steadily
and resolutely. There Is much to be

Room On Advice of Counsel the Ac- ,
cuaed Foregoes His Original Inten
tion of Addressing the Court Person

ment In His Behalf.
Albany, March 14. While senators.
assemblymen and state officers were
being turned away1 from the door on
t account of lack of room, inside, Albert
T. Patrick sat before tne ropea juageu
of the court of appeals this afternoon J
and heard ex-Senator David B. Hill ar
gue his appeal from the judgment con
victing him of the murder of William
M. Rice, the New Tork millionaire.
The unusual event of a condemned
murderer attending the argument of
his own case before the highest state
court brought crowds of people to the
but s,ma pPr"? t
wer,e successful in getting a sight
of the prisoner. Patrick's original in-
tention was to address the court, but
upon the advice of his counsel he re
mained silent, contenting himself with
listening! to the argument and making
notes which he used afterward in ad
vising with Mr; Hill regarding the re
buttal, which will probably occur to
morrow. ' "
Patrick's case was not reached until
late in the afternoon. He was defend-
ed by ex-Senator Hill and Samuel Bell
Thomas, of New Tork. Assistant Dis
trict Attorney Howard Garis was assist
ed in the prosecution by former Su
preme Court Justice Judson S. Landon.
Mr. Hill argued that the judgment of
conviction should be reversed and, a

condition of the lungs might easily have
been caused by the embalming fluid,
arid not by chloroform, as the prosecu
tion alieged. He pointed out that the
conviction of Patrick rested solely upon
thei evidence of Valet Jones, a confess
ed murderer, whose testimony, for that
reason alone, should have; been disre
garded. In this connection he attacked.
the district attorney's office for letting
Jones go free without punishment of j
any kind, and alleged that Jones' presr
ent immunity from punishment was
due to a bargain between him and tl?&
prosecuting attorneys. .
Mr. Hill declared that tWe evidence
regarding the, condition of Rice's. lungs
before 'the body was embalmed rested
.solely upon the testimony of two coro
ner's physicians; who were not the dis
interested public officials" they were
represented to be by the district attor
ney. As proof of this he Bald that it
had been discovered since the trial that
these witnesses had been privately re
tained by the prosecution and paid sev
eral thousand dollars for their services
in making experiments in the effect of
chloroform upon the human lungs.
The prosecution will be heard to-morrow
and It is expected that the case
will occupy the attention of the court
for. at least two days, v
