REPORT OF STEPANOFF Commander of the Gunboat VicKsburg Was Humane at Chemulpo and Stood Ready to Aid the Sailors of the Korietz and the Variag. St. Petersburg:, April 5. The state ment by Capt. Stepnnoff of the Variag: at Odessa, on April 2, regarding the ac- tion of the commander of the United States gun boat Vicksburg at Chemul po, was reprinted here today. It is believed that the statement wil! pot an end to the discussion of the incident which has been the cause of so much - - irritation in Russia. Capt. Stepano!!' s:is- "Xt the time the Vicksburg was stationed at Chemulpo her captain held aloof. He took no part inthe con ference of the protest preceding the fight for the simple reason that he was not invited to do so. After th-3 light, like the others, he sent a sur geon with a boaT to the headquarters. Regarding his not taking Russian sea men aboard the Vieksburg this was unnecessary. It is more probable that Captain Rudineff. commanding the Variag, did not ask it." The Zeitur.g says: "Captain Stepanoff has done well to explain the truth. It has never been to Russia's interest to make enemies, although chauvinism often has done so. Russia has every reason to express her sincere thanks a,d recognition for the humane and noble bearing of every pover represented at Chemulpo." RUSSIAN HEADQUARTERS. St. Petersburg. April 5. Great prep arations are being made here for the reception of the crews of the Variag and the Korietz. Trie council voted $7,500 for their reception and entertain ment. An army correspondent at Llao Chang forwards a description of Gi?n- ral Kuropatkin's headquarters, us follows: None of the pomp and circumstance of war are here, nothing but round hard work; The stone cottages built for the staff are cold and cheerless. Inside the officers have to sit In furs, despite a roarjng fire, but they are too busy to notice the discomfort. Every cottage resounds with the click of the typewriter, drawing ' up details of the disposition of troop. "We have eclipsed the Germans in precision and promptitude. There is no confusion or bustle. As soon as a regiment arrives it is comfortably quartered In warm, roomy barracks, the men are well fed and rested and then sent to the alloted stations. There is no serious illness imon; the arrivals and no epidemics. NO JAPS IN MANCHURIA. St. Petersburg, April 5.

Strike rioting at the American Can company's plant in this city today was f.ercer than at any time, and a man, John Nicholson, last his life by a bullet fired, it is said from a train cn which a number of non union men were being taken back to the city after the conclusion of the day's work. Fighting began early in the morning when 300 Greeks, who had been cm ployed during the strike, attempted to come to the factor?". They were met at the gates by a large number of union pickets, who attacked them with stones and clubs. A large detachment of police had their hands full to pro tect the Greeks, when a shot fired from the crowd aroused the Greeks' fury. These of the number who had entered the factory came pouring out armed with with knives and revolvers, and attempted to attack the union men and their sympathizers, who were assault ing those Greeks who had not reached the gateway. The police, after a des perate struggle, managed to keep the two bodies of men apart and drove the Greeks into the factory and dispersed those on the outside. In this light a number of men were severely hurt. At night when the 2f:0 Greeks left the plant, they were attacked by .1 mob fully 1000 strong, that polled then with sticks and bottles. The police, how ever, escorted them to the train with out anybody having been seriously in jured, although quite a number of men on both sides ware bruised. After the Greeks had reached their train it is s-:id that somebody on the cars fired a shot, the bullet killing Nicholson In stantly. o PLOT AGAINST JAPS. An Attempt to Blow Them up at Everett, Wash.

Your PocRet, and A DUTCH CHAMPION His Butchery at the Hands of Kid McCoy He Never Landed and He LooKed a Bloody and SicKening Spectacle for Four Minutes. Philadelphia, Pa.; April 5. Herr Placke, the champion of Holland, made a sorry spectacle of himself in a fight tonight with Kid McCoy at the Lennox club. Standing six inches taller and weighing seventy pounds more than his pale faced opponent, he was beaten almost insensible in less than four minutes. Plaeke never laid a glove on McCoy, except when the men clinched and cool, calculating Me Ccy darted in and out and around his burly opponent alrrfost like lightning, lie would feint with his right and then drive his left to the face viciously, scarcely ever foiling to bring the bluod. Before the first round had end ed, l'ljcke was covered with b!ot:d from his neck to his waist and both eyes were almost closed. Just befor-e the gong sounded the announcing close of the first rcund McCoy drove a vicious flush to chin, dropping Placke like a log. The gong saved him from being knocked out. He was carried to his corner only to be knocked out ten seconds after the opening of the second round. McCoy feinted with his right and then drove his left square to the point of Placke's nose. The latter placed his left hand ever the damaged organ and dropped to his knees. Blood was running from him in streams. As he knelt by the ropes the police appeared at the ring side and stopped Ihe bout Round 1 Placke led with his - left, but fell short. McCoy landed his right on. Placke's jaw. McCoy landed a left on jaw and r?p"ated with a r-ght. McCoy sent Plccke down with a straight left to chin and the 1 titer look a ccunt of eight. McCoy landel an other left flush on the mouth, drawng blood. McCcy drove a hard k-ft to Placke's nose and the latter was all but out. A left and right io he face made Placke 'ock like a piece of raw beef. He was hanging on to avoid punishment. McCoy dived in witn a right and then with a hard leit ic the mouth. Placke was blinded, li ooald not see. A vicious left dropp?! I'. j. k? but the gong saved him. McCjy had not been touched. Placke's exhibition was miserable. He was bleeding at the mouth and nore. Round 2 McCoy drove a villous right to Placke's mouth and the latttr dropped to h.'s knees, refusing to get up. Placke's face was a horrible sight, his right eya was closed completely and his lips were puffed to four times their normal size. As he knelt upon the floor the police walked to the ring side and stopped the bout. The second round lasted lc-ss than twenty seconds.

PANAMA LABOR TROUBLES. Washington. April .'.Labor trouble o. bauop irouDie On the isthmus Of Panrimp irrnn-l LAW AND MEDIGINE Motion for a New Trial in the Price Case A Number of Physicians Testify to the Danger of Bringing the Defend ant Into Court. Law 'books yesterday gave way in the district court t works on medl; cine; Fivculapius usurped the seat cf Blackstcne, The courtroom was flooded with information on the sub ject of locomotor ataxia. At the morning session the case of the United States against Hugh H. Price, former surveyor general, was called. This was one of the. cases in which Mr. Price had been indicted at the last lerm of the United States court and in which a continuance had been granted to the present term. Walter r.ennett, attorney for the defendant, moved for a continuance for the term, stating that the physical condition of Mr. Price was such that he could not appear in court without serious 'risk. It was stated that Mr. Price was suf fering from locomotor ataxia and that he had been confined to his home since last Saturday night. v The motion was opposed by United States Af.orney Nave who had inform ed himself on the subject of locomotor ataxia. Ke understood that the disease while a very serious one," was seldom fatal and that It did not cloud .th? mental faculties.- He believed that the defendant should be brought into court and made as comfortable as possible. He aAled that men had been tried on criminal charges while lying on cots. , The master of subjecting the de fendant to a medical examination was brought up. Mr. Nave suggested that the examination be conducted by a physician not a resident of Phoenix, no doubt fearing that the sympathies of a local physician would obscure his pro fessional Judgment. Judge Kent, how ever, on h'.s own motion, appointed Dr. "William Duffield to conduct the exam ination an I the motion went over to 2 o'clock. In the meantime several oth er physicians had been summoned to give general expert testimony on the subject of the disease with which Mr. Price is afllicted. The first ,w itness was Dr. J. W. Foss. He knew something of the case of Mr. Price and from what he knew he did not believe that he could be. safely brought info court. Replying to a ques tion by th United States attorney, he said it was true that the disease was stldom.faU.L. but that, death - was us ually the result of complications to which one suffering from locomotor ataxia was peculiarly rusceptible. The resistive powers of the patient de creased with the progress of the di? ease. The doctor said that in the case of Mr. Price the disease had reached an advanced stage and naturally the progress now would be less marked tnan at an earlier stage. This infoimation was brought out by the attorney for the government, who had before him Osier and Andrews on the practice of medicine. But the doc tor concluded that the defendant ought not to be subjected to the strain of a trial. The next witness was Dr. R. "W, Cr'alg. His testimony was very much the same as that of Dr. Foss. He had known of the case of Mr. Price for a long time. There was a lack of co ordination of the muscles and the eye was affected. The witness had not made an ophthalmoscopic examination but he believed that there was en- atorphy of the eye. This was brought out by the government attorney's ques tlons, the object seeming to be to show that the condition of the defendant wTas so bad that In no circumstance could it be made wcrse. Dr. Craig alo said that the patient should not be brought into court. While it was not likely that the excitation consequent . upon submitting him to the ordeal of a trial would prove fatal, the effect upon the already weakened nerves would neces sarily be bad and might produce par alysis. Dr. VT. H. Battin testified next. His testimony was very little different from that of the preceding witnesses. He, too, .believed that the defendant could not be brought into court with safety. Mr. Nave reminded - him that the bookss said that the disease was seldom fatal. "Then," said the attor ney, "the stra in to which the defendant would be submitted would not culmin ate in Ks death, would it?" "It prob ably would not," was the reply, "but it might culminate In ids being sent to the Insane asylum. T had a patient suffering frori this disase and he Is now an inmati of the asylum." Dr. Duffield testified next. He aid that according to the order of the court he had gone to the residence of Mr. 'Price. H-; took with him Dr. -An-cil Martin to make, if necessary, an ex amination of the eye. Dr. Duffield said that he bad found Mr. Price in a very bad condition. He was excitable and Irritable. His mental powers were greatly impaired and hisi memory was especiallj' defected. The doctor said that It would not only be unsafe to bring the defendant Into court but that In his mental condition, any testi mony he would offer would be wholly unreliable. In reply to a question by the government attorney, Dr. Du eld said that notwithstanding the testi mony of the books that the disease is seldom fatal, the reports of the' boards of health of the large , cities 'show that a considerable number of deaths are described a:3 having been caused by locomotor ataxia. The testimony of Dr. Martin -was a corroboration of that of Dr. Duffield. All the physicians agreed that the books produced by Mr. Nave wen; standard authorities, and that though locomotor ataxia is seldom if ever followed . directly by death, there wait nothing in the disease calculated to prolong life. The examination having been con-i eluded Mr. Nave addressed the court. He sold that it had been stated by Dr. Duffield that Mr. Price would probably never be any better than ho is now. Therefore, said the attorney, if he is to be tried at all ha should be tried at this term. Mr. Nave reminded the court of the facts brought cut by the examination. That it had been shown that -the defendant was In the most ad vanced stage of his disease; he had fallen to the lowest depts of physical misery ar.d that, therefore, his trial could precipitate hllm no further. Walter Bennett spoke again in behalf of the motion for a continuance and said that the assertion by Mr. Nave that the defendant was so sick that he could be made no sicker and that he therefore ought to be forced to trial was the most extraordinary- reason he had ever heard offered against a mo tion for a continuance. Judge Kent announced that he would hold the rr.at- fter under advisement until today. SPECIAL COAL RATES. Chicago, April 5.

In a dispatch from Princeton, N.-J., to the World, former President Cleveland is quoted as finding in the movement looking to the nomination of Judge Alton B. Parker, for the presidency, "the great est possible relief and satisfaction." Mr. Cleveland is further reported to have said: "I do not see how any one professing to be a real, intelligent democrat can hesitate to accept Mr. Parker if he should be nominated, as a fit repre sentative of safe and conservative democratic principles, entitled to the hearty and unreserved democratic sup port." According to the World's correspon dent, Mr. Cleveland said regarding the platform of his party this year: "There are certain democratic doc trines believed in by the conservative element of the party which will control at St. Louis. These doctrines should in no event be evaded. Such of these as appear to furnish at this time the most vital campaign issues should be given the greatest prominence and should be announced in such a .vay as to exclude all doubt as to their meaning- and -all: appearance 'of - -?ompTO- mise."

Municipal elections were held in several towns In Colorado today. No elections were held in any large cities. Quiet prevailed every where with the exception of the town of Sheridan in south Denver. There Sheriff "Gallagher and Mike Ryan, a saloonkeeper, came into conflict. Gal lagher claimed that Ryan was trying to vote repeaters and drove him out of the voting booth. Ryan came to Den ver and collected a crowd of reputed gun fighters and returned to Sheridan, took possession of the voting place and drove the others out. High license was the principal Issue and wherever voted on it carried the day. At Rockva.le, Coal Creek and Will iamsburg, coal mining camps, the la bor union tickets were elected. Breck enridge, Alamosa and Lake City elec- ed full democratic tickets. At Mont rose, Buena Vista, Lamar and Walsen burg, taxpayers' tickets were chosen. The citizens of the latter town defeaited a proposition for the municipal owner ship of waterworks. At Lamar the taxpayers' ticket was opposed by the fusion democrats and anti-Wolcotts. A number of towns had up but one ticket. o ANTI-JEWISH RIOTS. An Unconfirmed Report from Southern Russia. ' St. Petersburg, April 5.
