St. Petersburg, April 7. While the first line cf defense against Japanese , advance from Korea is a strong posi- : tion. selected by General Kuropatkin, near Feng Huang Cheng, it is believed that the Russians intended to hold out as long as possible at Antung, which commands the Pekirt read. The place has many natural advan tages for defense. The army, acting to Russian advices, is strung out along the road between Anju and WiJVi, its advance being severely impeded by bad roads, which make it difficult to push forward supplies, which are dragged by coolies, requiring an eight days' march from Chijon Ju to Yalu. For seventy miles the river is 503 fathoms wide and at Yongampho it is Ice laden and baned by islands, . which reason Russian sharp shooters j will harrass the Japanese advance. i The Russians have entrenched them- I selves heavily- to block the progress of. the Japanese in case they succeed In landing at bead of Liao Tung Gulf. OTHER RUSSIAN SCHEMES. Paris. April 7.

In view of complications which may ensue, orders have been given to prepare lists of all university graduates under forty years old capable of serving as reserve oflt cers. A portion of the reserves will be tolled off to guard the Siberian ni'ilroad. The decree will be published shortly. "The army of Port of Libau has been completed and the foreign vessels have been forbidden to enter the, port with out authorization." - THE AMERICAN MINES. Seoul, April 7. The report that Rus sian troops had appeared at the American mines at Unsan in northern Korea, is without foundation. No Russians are at Unsan now, nor have any been there. This applies particularly to points under Japanese control, but from the Russian side also it is evident that care is being exercised to prevent news of operations leeking out.

St. Petersburg, April 7. The terri ble condition of Harbin which it is feared will lead to an epidemic, is re vealed in a dispatch to Novosti. The matter is of particular importance, in view of the 'fact that Harbin is the center of the Russian military move ment in Russia. All troops pass through this point and all provisions and medi cal supplies are brought here. An ar rangement has been made for Harbin to become the first station for the sick and wounded during the war. Despite the "dry spring and summer, arid the peaceful conditions in the ter ritory last year there were cases of cholera and typhoid fever, a further development of which was stopped by the November frosts. The chief cause of contagion Is the . water of'Sungari river and the shallow wells, which are located in unsaritary places. Anothei source of contagion is that the ground filth in winter has not been satisfac torily disposed of. but lies exposed above the ground in .the heart of the city, the streets of which are filled wiLi refuse.

SENATOR HANNA Mr. Foraker Speaks of His Colleague AS TO THEIR DIFFERENCES They Were Numerous but They Were Honestly Inspired Tor the Unbuild ing of the Party Jn the North and the South of Ohio. Washington, April 7. In accordance with a previous agreement the senate today devoted practically its entire time to eulogies upon the character of the late Senator Hanna. The galleries were crowded with the friends and ad mirers of the late senator and the speakers were given the closest atten tion. Mr. Foraker was the first speak er. He presented the usual resolutions of sorrow and asked for their consid eration. Stating that he had first become ac quainted with Mr. Hanna at the na tional convention of 1884, where both were delegates at large, Mr. Fcraker said that they had co-operated In sup port of Senator Sherman for the presi dency. "As a result of that experience," he said, "we became warm friends, both politically and .personally." This friendship, said the senator, had been interrupted prior to the conven tion of 1888, when their relations were entirely Interrupted for the next three years, "when" he went on, "in a modi fled and less cordial way, they were resumed, and thereafter continued un til his death. These relations were less cordial than previously, because, al though we, at times, heartily co-operated,, and in a personal and social way were entirely friendly, yet in po litical matters, we were generally op posed to each other in factional con tests and controversies among the re publicans cf our state." He said Mr. Hanna's relation to Mr. McKinley had naturally rendered him "dominant in Ohio politics." These matters of the past, said the senator, were brought up only for the purpose of illustrating the pclnt of view from which he had studied the man. He Baid: v "In the grave with bim lie buried all the differences, all the hostilities, all the prejudices and all the unkindness of feeling pf every sort . that ever nt any ""time "may have been enter tained. "To those who knew h'm closely only as I knew him for the first four years of our acualqntance, he was an unusually lovable man. He was bright, cheery, generous, kind, strong and ever ready to practice self-denial, es pecially when it Involved preferment of friend. "These qualities were so pronounced and so manifest that none ether could well be seen by those who looked through only partial eyes of friendship. "By these traits and habits he nat urally made such ardi nt friends of all with whom he met that it was easy for them to think and believe that If he had differences with anyone or met w-ith opposition from anyone. It must have been without fault on his-part." Foraker spoke eulogistically of Han na's intellectual qualities, of his uner ring judgment of men, his executive qualities, his strong common sense, his business training, etc., but said that he was deficient in scholarship and or atorical gifts. Speaking of Hanna's career In the senate, Foraker said: "His services in the senate covered a period of almost seven years. During all this time he was influential and helpful In determining policies and shaping legislation of national and In ternational importance and conse quence; but he left behind him no stat ute or other measure of which he was distinctively the author." Referring to Senator Hanna's part in the McKinley campaign, Mr. For aker said: "This was his great oppor tunity and he Improved It no thorough ly that he not only excited the affec tionate regard of his own party, but also commanded the admiration of his opponents. It was an arduous work well done. "He grew not alone with years, but even with days. Soon the whQle coun try came to understand that he was one of the really great men of his day and generation. Then the pendulum of public opinion swung quickly In the opposite direction. Misconceptions failed and misrepresentations ceased. In short, although lie had deficiencies, and probably disappointed expectations In some respects, he filled a great place among the greatest men of his time, and died respected, beloved and mourn ed by all classes of his countrymen." THE HOUSE. Washington, April 7. The Swayne impeachment proceeding, which has been looked upon us the only possible check to an early adjournment, was disposed of in live minutes by the house today by the adoption of a resolution j making the case special order for De cember 13th rext. In the meantime the judiciary committee is to take ad ditional testimony in the case, j After disposing of the report on the iirmy appropriation bill the house took up the bill extending the coastwise laws to the Philippines, and by a vote of 122 to 100 adopted a special rule to vote on this bill after a debate of two hours . Mr. Grosvenor explained briefly the necessity for the bill. He said that unless the bill was passed the coast wise laws would go Into effect on the first of next May. N Mr. Lucking, Michigan, charged a violation 'of an agreement on the part j of Mr. Grovesnor. He said he had been promised ample time for debate and opportunity for amendment. Mr. DeArmond of Missouri, follow'cd up the criticism of Mr. Grosvenor and advised the house to vote the rule down "so that the gentleman from Ohio may Iteep faith with his colleagues on the committee." Mr. Grovesnor proclaimed mctly that never before had he been charged with varying from the committee agree ment. He denied that any such agree ment was made as to the bill in ques tion, but it wap made as to two other tills which have since been passed by the house. Mr. Lucking spoke for half an hour in opposition to the bill. He said the Philippines were pronounced home ter ritory so far as the regulation of their Slipping was concerned, but foreign so far as giving them! free markets in this country. .He said the cordage in terests, the merchants and every in terest a.-e opposed to the bill "except this infernal ship lobby, which has been here for seven years pestering congress. They are here today sending for members at the lobby doors, and Intimidated an official, whom -I shall not mention." Mr. Linn, of Minnesota, opposed the bill on the ground that It would In crease the price of binding twine to the farmers of the west for the benefit of the cordage trust. Mr. Humphrey, of Washmirton. declared that th enough ships now plying between Seat- lie ana tne orient to carry ail the hemp from the Philippines. o SHE GOES FOR LIFE The Conviction of Mrs. Cordelia Botkin She Might Have Been Hanged for Sending Poisoned Candy to Mrs. John P. Dunning. San Francisco, April 7. Mrs. Cor delia Botkin, accused of killing Mrs. John P. Dunning, of Dover, Del., by sending her poisoned candy ' through the mails, was tonight convicted of murder in the first degree, with a pen alty fixed at life imprisonment. At 11:15 o'clock the jury reported that an agreement had been reached. The ominousness of the announcement was iipparent in the attituie of the de fendant, who buried her face in her handsi and remained in that position until the foreman of tha Jury had fin ished speaking. THE INDIAN SCHOOL The Impression Gained of It by an Eastern Visitor. A recent visitor writes to The Re publican, as follow?: Visitors from the east or elsewhere should net leave Phoenix before going to the governi ment Indian school. The teachers will give one a cordial welcome and furbish a guide to show one through the several buildings to see the pupils at their work. Through the kindness of M:s Harvey our party epent a day long to be remembered. Being chaperoned by our deaconess. Miss Lula I. Clifton, of Omaha we were specially honored, an the "white ties" are a passport throughout the civilized world. Any one who doubts that "knowledge has power" should make It their duty to visit each elas room from the lowest gr-de, where pupils are Just from the reservation, and follow them up term after term, as we do our American scholars, till we see the Pueblo and the Apache enter our colleges with as good ar. average standing as their white brothers. We quite enjoyed the music class where about forty Indii.n boys and girls sang In good English, "In the Wild Chamois Track," with faces as animated as If ready for the chase. We stand and gate with admiration Into the windows and at the curios and Navajo rugs (till every Phoenician knows "we've just come"). Why not go out to the school and watch the lit tle Indian girls making them as taught on the reservation? You will not wonder that after si weeks' work during school hours produces a rug they vakie at ten dollars. Many ar ticles of Indian work can be seen there. As we near the class of domestic sci ence the aroma of the Adaans dining room Is not more tempting than that which greets you, and tha appetite sharpens as you look at the neat, dex trous workers, with every modern ap pliance of the American cooking school. And so on through' each class, new sur prises will meet you. Them the hospital, so different from any I had ever visited. The neat Iron beds with their white spreads were tempting, too, as the nurse greeted 'us with such a happy smile, believing she was really to admit a patient at last. The day was at its close. We scented no gruel or beef tea, so we left in search of a Phoenix restaurant . The different pastors of the city al ternate with the, Sunday afternoon service when the seven hundred pupils form an attentive audience. The as sembling to the music of the Indian band, and the "lowering of the flag" at sunset is worth all the trouble, which is only a pleasant ride out through the green fields of the "sun-kissed land" of Arizona. WILL START AGAIN. Pueblo, Colo., April 7. It was an nounced today that the Steel Wheel and Wagon company, which has shut down for some months, will resume operations at an early date. The wagon company Is one of the auxiliary plants at the Minnequa steel works, costing one million dollars. It is expected several hundred men willj be employed from the start. . CONCERNING THE MERGER. An Attorney Who Gathers ' His In formation from the Newspapers. Helena. Mont., April 7. Attcrney General James Donovan returned from the east today. Speaking of the story that he had had -a conference in St. Paul with the officials of the Great Northern over the preposition of the violation of the laws of Montana to prevent the Harriman people from se curing control of the Northern Paci fic, he said-' "I had no conference with the Great Northern officials about the matter nor did I say anything to any newspaper man about it. "In fact, the first I knew of it was when I secured a Montana newspaper at Livingstone this morning. I was not summoned to St. Paul by any one. On the contrary, I came through there on my way home from Washington city. I did call on D. A. Wilkinscn. one of the officials of the Great Northern, but merely in a social way, and spent perhaps ten minutes vitb him." o A DEAD COLORODAN. Denver, Anril 7. A telegram was re ceived in this city tonight announcing the death at Mobile. Ala., of General J. W. Browning, from valvular condi tion of the heart.
