NO. 3V 1 SEA RAVAGERS The Vladivostok Cruisers Return Safely to Port DESTROYED FIVE VESSELS Capture of British Steamer With Sus picions Caro Rumor That Japan ese TooK One of Port Arthur's In ner Forts Bumor of Their Repulse Tokio, June 19. The remarkable taid of the Russian Vladivostok squad ron evidently is over. The squadron disappeared yesterday off Cape Hen ashi, steering to the north and it has not been reported since. It is assumed o be' returning to Vladivostok. Whether or not aportion of Vice Ad miral Kamim ura's squadron is await ing the Russians off Vladivostok is a ; carefully guarded secret. Assuming t that Kamimura dispatched some of his essels to Vladivostok when he learned that the Russian squadron was otf Ikl Island these ships would have had am pie time to arrive tfiere ahead of the Russians and will be ready to give bat tle. The weather has been foggy and thus the conditions have been against the Japanese. It is reported that the raiding Rus sians captured a British steamer laden with coal, bound south from the island of Yezo. and sent her to Vladivostok With a prize crew, but the report is not confirmed by the Japanese navy de partment. The transports Sado, Hitachi and iriin-a upra the onlv ones overhauled by the Russians. The Japanese had ! thirteen transports in and near the strait of Korea the morning. the Saiq and Hitachi were caught and it was fortunate that the three ships mention ed were overtaken by the enemy. It is impossible to get complete facts concerning the sinking of the Hitachi. She evidently failed to stop when sig naled to do to by the Russian vessel. The claim was made that Captain Campbell, the English master of the Hitachi refused to stop and planned to ram the Russians .but this is denied. It is said that the Japanese officers on board the Hitachi declined to surren der and required Captain Campbell to keep his ship going. The assertion thatUhe Russians fired upon the life boats in which the men were -escaping from the Japanese transport has not been fully sutstantiated. The raid tt tho Vladivostok squadron has brought an unwarranted amount of criticism upon Vice Admiral Kami mura from the Japanese, and his failure to catch the Russians in the fog off Gensan, Korea, when the Japanese tiansport Kir.svhiu was sunk April 2G, with a. loss of 200 men. has been re called. Some of these even declare that if Vice Admiral Kaminjura fails to catch the Russian vessels before they Ti BIG SHOE SALE Will Last Only 40 DAYS . 3 "LJERE arc a few of the most desirable : Shoes we are offering Som of i them are from the stock of the Phoenix Shoe Co,; some from the stock we bought ij of L.

The popular demand for his replace ment is grooving, but the public is with out information as to tho nature of his orders or the plans of the naval cam paign, and fails to mak allowance for the limitation of conditions. Kamimura's squadron wsts lying off Tau Island when the ra'ding Russians reached Okini island. He immediately started in pursuit of tire enemy, but rains obscured the sea and an electrical storm interfered with the system of wireless telegraphy. Kamimura is a splendid officer and the only possible in dictment agains him is one of a lack of good luck. The Japanese generally magnify the importance of this Russian raid, which has no material effect up on the war. It was a desperate ven ture and it is believed to have suc ceeded only through blind luck, i The Yawata and the Anaei, two sail ing Phips, were sunk by the Russians on Thursday off the west coast of Yezo. This makes a total .of five Jap anese ships sunk or destroyed by the Russian raiders. KAMIMURA MISSED THEM. Tokio, June 20. Vice Admiral Kami mura returned to his base yesterday (Sunday) without having discovered the Russian Vladivostok fleet. SANK A RAILWAY PLA"NT. A Part of the Cargo of the Three Ja panese. Transports. St. Petersburg, June. 19. Emp.iror Nicholas has received the following dis patch dated Jun 19. from Vice Admiral Skrydlcff : "On June 15 our cruiser d: vlsion encountered in the strait cf Korea a Japanese transport steam'n? from the south in the direction cf the Japanese coast, which was visible on the horizon. The vessel proved to be the Izumi, with troops on board. At the expiration the time given those on board to lowr the boats and leave the ship, permission to do which was taken advantge of by part of the crew, the transport wus sunk by our guns. Shortly afterward two more transports were sighted to the southeast. They proved to be the Hitachi (;nd Sado, thi former with troops and the latter car rying coolies, horses and a railway plant. The transports refused to sur render and at the end of the period granted those on board to take to the boats, the two vessels were sunk by torpedoes and shells. "The losses on the three transport , the tonnage of which aggregated about 15.00C tons, consisted of trcop. and crews and a large quantity of war ma terial and a railway p'.ant. "On June 16, our squadron met the British steamer Allanton, which was proceeding south with a cargo of coal from the port of Mourorun, the Island of Hokkaido (the administrative name of the Japanese island of Yezo.) A lack of clearness in her papers and an ir regularity in her los excited suspicion concerning the neutrality of her cargo. The steamer was therefore sent to Vladivostok in charge of a detachment of soldiers commanded by Lieutenant Pitroff. She has arrived at Vladivos LONGER ' -V -t- 4, 4. 4fc4 prize court will consider STORY OF THE SINKING. Tokio, June 19. Three' boat leads of the survivors of the Japanese transp6rt Izumi, which was sunk by the raiding Russian squadron off Oshima on the morning of uJne 15 have arrived at Hakata. Twenty-two other survivors have landed at Malzuru. The survivors declare that the Izumi was surrounded at 8 o'clock on the morning of the loth by the Russian ar mored cruiser Gromoboi, after which the transport was shelled and sunk. The persons removed from the Japan ese ships, numbering 108 all told, were confined below on board the Gromo boi. During the afternoon of the next day while off Okino Island, twenty two of the non-combatants were trans ferred to the Japanese vessel Unko. The Gromoboi . then proceeded to the north. The Japanese steamer Vaiko was fired cn by the Russians on June 15 but escaped to Tau Island. ENTIRE REGIMENT WENT DOWN. St. ePtersburg, June 19. A disnacch from Mukden says that according to trustworthy advices received there an entire infantry regiment with Its com mander was sunk with the transports Hitachi and Sado. The same story says according to Chinese statements the attack made by the Japanese on Port Arthur have been repulsed with heavy losses. THE FIGHT AT VAFANGOW. An Account Based on an Official Dis patch by General Oku. Tokio, June 19. General Oku, victor of the battle of Nan Shan Hill on May 26. fought and won the battle at Telissu (Vafangow. according to the Russian designation) on June 15. There was a strong similarity be tween the two fights. At Telissu the Japanese had to drive the Russians from two hills, while at Nan Shan the nemv occuDied but one hill. The Russian position at Telissu was super ior to that of the Japanese and equal ised the advantage of the Japanese In having the larger force. The Rus sian position extended from east to west and crossed a narrow vfelley through which runs the Foo Chou river and,the railroad. From their positions on the right and left in the high hills which liank this valley. General Oku drove the Russians down the valley. The Japanese general carried first the enemy's right and then his left. The fight at the left of his line was the most desperate of the day. The Rus sians held this position with desperate determination and only fled when they were almost completely enveloped. The field had been disputed all day and when the Japanese reached it 600 of tha enemy'3 dead were found there. General Oku In his report says the Russians began the fight with 25 bat talions of infantry, seventeen squad rons of cavalry and ninety-eight guns. They were reinforced several times but the number of reinforcements is not known. The Russian casualties are not known with exactitude, but the Japanese right found and buried part of the enemy's dead. Seven Russians officers and 300 men were taken pris oners. The Japanese casualties reported up to noon June 17 amounted to about 900 I men including eight officers killed and fourteen wounded. RUMOR AS TO PORT ARTHUR. Che Foo, June 19.

Conjectures as to the Successors of the Retiring Attorney General Knox and Secretary Cortelyou. Washington, June 19. Attorney Gen eral Knox and Secretary Cortelyou will retire from the cabinet, on the first day of the fiscal year, and their successors are expected to take office on July 1. This arrangement was determined upon today at the " Cabinet meeting, with the approval of tne president. While the attorney general has not yet received his appointment as Sena tor from Pennsylvania, it is expected that Governor Pennypacker will send him his credentials within the next few days, and, as he desires to accept the honor ( w 1th reasonable promptness, certainly within a week after receiv ing it, as It is impossible for him to hold the two offices simultaneously, it is agreed that he must leave the depart ment of justice by the end of this month. Instead of retaining the Attor nery generalship, as he had hoped to do, until about the time congress meets in December. By adopting this course Mr. Knox will be able to devote the summer to much needed rest and recreation at his beautiful new summer home at Valley Forge. The work of the department of justice is in admirable condition for his retirement. He has completed all that could be accomplished before the higher courts, vhich have now adjourn ed for the summer vacation, and he will be able to leve the legal problems now before the department in the best pos sible state for his successor. It is regarded as peculiarly fortun ate that the president has, as a mem ber of his cabinet, a lawyer ready to assume the duties of Attorney General. Sec. Moody, who It is authoritative ly announced will be transferred to the debarment 'of justice on July 1, is fa familiar with the work performed and mapped'out by Attorney General Knox, because of the many discussions con cerning it at the meetings of the cabinet In these he has taken part because of his legal training, and he consequently goes to his new duties fully conversant with them and prepared to carry out the policies already adopted. Secretary Moody's successor at the head of the navy department has not yet been decided upon, though the name of Representative Dayton of West Virginia, the most active mcmbr-r of the house committee on naval "affairs, has been most frequently suggested by thone In the confidence of the adminis tration since It was announced some weeks ago that Mr. Moody would cer tainly retire before the next w inter. Mr. Dayton is a lawyer, and is beginning his fifth successive term. He is an excep tionally able man. Assistant Secretary Darling has been recommended for the vacancy, but it Is understood that he will remain in his present place, where he has made an enviable record. It is confidently expected that Secre tary Cortelyou will be elected chair man of the republican national com mittee next Thursday, and he is already making his arrangements to leave the cabinet just a week later to take charge of the campaign. While authoritative confirmation has not yet been given to the suggestion, to fill the vacancy by naming Representative Metcalf of Cal ifornia, as predicted in these dispatches it is well understood that no one else Is now under serious consideration for the office. o THE NEW $10 RATE Makes Business for Immi gration Inspectors The Steamship Companies, Though, Subject Applicants for Passage at Reduced Rate to Closer Scrutiny. New York, June 19. Not far from 3,000 Immigrants were landed at Ellis Island yesterday, with the result that the Immigration inspectors had their bands full, not only in putting the newcomers through the usual examin ation provided by law, but also in find ing accommodations on the island for the unusually large number of aliens held for special inquiry or temporarily detained for technical reasons. The 1 island is not yet absolutely swamped and the inspector are hoping that the average character and general fitness of the future arrivals will not fall off so much as to make a larger percent age of detentions necessary. Commis sioner Williams and Deputy Commis nioner Allen Robinscn have faced the threatened necessity of providing tents i for the crowds awaiting examination, but thus far it has not become neces sary to provide them. Roughly speaking, the average of de tentions for all three shius arriving yesterday was 14 per cent. Of those detained, however, fully half, were what is known as "special inquiry" cases, which means deportation In the great majority of instances. Only two of the ships, the Rotterdam, with 710 steerage passengers, and the Zeeland, w ith 1,075, brought $10 Immigrants. The Hellig Olav, of fhe Scandinavian American line, brought 1,148 passen-' cers, all of whem had contracted for their passage before the rate ' war reached the $10 stage; But the Hellig Olav's pessengers were nevertheless to some extent the beneficiaries of - the rate war, for it was six weeks ago that the lines of the North Atlantic Confer ence invaded the territory of the Cu- nard line in the Soandlna via "penin sula, and established a much lower rate scredule, with a minimum fare of $18. Tomorrow 2,300 are expected to arrive at Ellis Island. Whether this number will overtax the already strained ca pacities of the island establishment de pends largely upon the progress made In clearing yesterday's arrivals, out of the way. Inspectors and special in quiry boards are working under ex treme pressure to dispose of the cases pending before them and to get the de tained immigrants passed in or taken quickly away by the steamshipcompan les which are compelled to carry back the deported. Yesterday's record of 14 per cent detained compares with a normal of about 7 Der cent, but com parison loses its chief significance un less It Is borne in mind that not less than half of yesterday's detentions were special inquiry cases, generally ending In deportation. In other years the percentage of deportations has ranged from 1 1-2 to 3 per cent. It was said at the office of the Red Star line yesterday that the company's agents on the other side were subject ins applicants fcr passage to this country to a particularly strict scrut Inny since the $10 cut had been made in order to shut out all who seemed likely to be deported or detained at Ellis Iflland. It was stated that of those desiring to sail on the Zeeland. which arrived yesterday with 1,075 steerage passengers from Antwerp, 130 were re jected before the departure of the steamer. This care of the steamship romoanies to avoid deportations, If It is being generally observed, is obvious Jy the outcome of the congested con diticn of Ellis Island, which force the immigration officials to draw the lines tighter than ever In the examination of those seeking to become Americans.

On the other hand a great many thin and grassy cattle were marketed last week including stockers, cows- and1 stock calves, and the price on these has been cut severely, averaging around 30 cents. Grass cows sell at $2.50 to $3.25, western stockers at $3.00 to $1.25, best stock calves at $4.50. Veal calves are draggy at $4.00 to $4.50.

Chicago, June 1.9--The vice presi dency and the tariff plank in the plat form were the principal subject of . discussion among the delegates t the republican national convention -today and this evening. The state delega tions will meet tomorrow to organize and select the membersof the various committees and it is expected that dec larations will be made on the vice presidency that will determine uh will be the candidate. From all appearances Senator Fair banks will be the choice, as a suffic ient number of the leaders have declar ed for him and have announced lh probable support cf their delegations for him to indicate his selection. The Indiana senator was seen for 0 few minutes in the corridors of W Auditorium Annx and warmly greet ed by a throng of men who indicate'! to him their desire to see him named for the second place on the ticket. H remained non-committal as usual, his position being that the nomination can r.either be sought nor refused. The knowledge that the senator will not tefuse has been communicated to the delegates and has largely increased the prospects of his nomination. A movement today for Representa tive Hitt seems to have been precipi tated to some extent by those who f It that Fairbanks should make a declara tion. Then again the Illinois men feci action of their state convention they must make an earnest effort for Mr. Hltt. It is a fac t, tcwever, that the recent illness of Mr. Hltt at Washington has damper.ed tnt ardor of his supporters, who acknowl edge that this will work to his disad vantage. Two active vice presidential aspir ants were about the Auditorium corrt ridors during the evening. John le Webster, of Nebraska, and John 'W. Springerr of Colorado. Senator Lodge, of Messacbusetts, ar rived with the draft of the platform In his pocket. He was notified, that he will be recognized to move the appoint ment of the committee on resolutions and this means his selection as chair man of the committee. All interest In the platform centers In the tariff plai.k find the sentiment is that there will b- ft straight declaration for protection without promises for future tariff re vision or reciprocity. Senator Hansbrough has the draft of n resolution promising bcth. but It meets with little favor among the te- i , . ... . K ,k- ... mittee on resolutions and will urge the adopticn of the resolutions he has pre pared. He thinks the committee will hesitate before voting down such a res olution when offered but it will not go into the convention with a minority le pcrt if voted down. Senator Allison, of Iowa, has been consulted regarding the tariff plank and has advised against making any pledges for future action. It is under stood that such a course will suit the is io doubt expressed about the selection cf Secretary Cortelyou for chairman of the national commit tee, although many prominent men in the party are found who do not hesi tate privately to express some disip pointment that a more experienced politician was not chosen.
