The Japanese deployed westward ' from the vicinity of Chuchlatnn and. confronting the Russian line east of the railroad, began an advance at an early hour on Sunday morning'. At 9 o'clock the Japanese right had reached a bluff a little less thin two miles from Tai Ping Mountain. At 5 o'clock in the afternoon the Russian batteries posted In various positions on high grou.id opened with vigor and shelled the ad vancing Japanese line. The strength of the Russians gradually developed during the day and General Oku esti mated it at five divisions and one hun dred guns. The Russian fire prevented a general advance and determined Gen. Oku to decide to await the advent of darkness to deliver a night assault. Two divisions of Russians occupied the Saicheng road and Gen. Oku took the precautionary measure of engaging this force with artillery. The Russians re plied with artillery and the duel lasted until darkness. Suddenly at 10 o'clock Sunday night the entire Japanese right was hurled against the first Russian position east and west of Tai Ping Mountain an 1 easily captured it.

J 2S333BI KNOWS IT NOW resident Roosevelt Inform ed of His Nomination VAS A SIMPLE CEREMONY The Speech of Acceptance Was Brief but Strong and Is Regarded as an Auspicious Opening of the Presi dential Campaign. Oyster Ray, L. I., July 27. Theodore Roosevelt today formerly opened the political campaign of 1904, at this ountry home. Sagamore Hill. Standing on a spot made dear to him by the us soeiationsi oC a lifetime, surrounded by his family and relatives and friends. and in the presence of an assemblage of men distinguished in all walks ol fe, he formally received and accept ed the nomination of the republican party for president of the United Str.les. President Roosevelt s speech of -acceptance was characteristic forceful and direct in argument and replete .with epigrammatic passages. It was received with enthusiasm by his audien. e. Prosperity may be said to have been the keynote of the address, while the achievements of the repub lican parry in Ftatesmanship tit horn-: ind abroad, were depicted "with thi touch of a skilled hand. His satirical references to the democratic party aroused laughter and applause. As the president concluded his speech, speaker Joseph G. Ouir.on, chairman of the notification commit tee. g;aspt?d his hand and congratulated him k-ordially. vGeorge B. Cortelyou, chairman of the republican national committee then extended his congratu lations. He was followed by all the members of the notification committer and the quests. The president's spet will bo circulated extensively during the campaign, aside from the letter of acceptance which he will issue In few weeks, and which will probably be his only public utterances durin the campagn. From the arrival of e special train from New York with the notification committee on board until Its departure not a hitch cxcurreiL In accordan t with the wish of the president, th ceremony was made as simple as pos .iMe. Tiie formal notification of the action of the convention was made on be half of a committee representing every sltite and territory in the United States by Joseph G. Cannon, speaker of the national house. The day opened with Ideal weather, and the arrangements for the ceremony were coir.pk-ted at an early hour. Tin wide veranda of the president's hous at Sagamore Hill extending almost en tirely around 'the balding, was de corated with American flags hung from pillar to pillar. In addition, many houses In the neighborhood of the Roosevelt home and in Oyster Bay were draped with the national colors. Across the main street of the village, there hung a largd Rooseveit and Fairbanks banner. Regiets were received from only three members, James M. Cobbs of Florida, Senator Depew of New York and Senator Clark of Wyoming. Sen ator Depew is in Europe and Sena tor Clark was prevented by Important business from being present. Shortly after noon, all guests had ar rived, but the ceremony of notification did not begin until 12:27 p. m. After some consultation between the presi dent. Speaker Cannon. Chairman Cor telyou ai'd Secretary Loeb, it was de cided to hold exercises on the veran da. The heat was too great to admit of the guests being required to sit on the lawn. It was found that all the guests could easily assemble on the ve randa within easy hearing of the speakers. The ceremony I was Informal i Speaker Cannon, attired In a dark frock suit, stepped on a chair near the veranda railing, he was greeted cor dially. While he read the notification, the president was at his right hand, giving close attention to the address Mrs. Roosevelt, surrounded by her children, Keimit, Ethel, and Quentin, stood facing Mr. Cannon, almost in the center of the crowd. Mr. Cannon was frequently interrupted by ap plause. His thrusts at the democratic party, his references to the tariff and to the goid standard and the con struction of the Panama canal aroused much enthusiasm. President Roosevelt shook Mr. Can non's hand heartily at the conclusion and then mounted a chair to delivpr his address in resnnnso. reception was given him that it was some time before he could proceed. He was In excellent voice and though he followed the printed text of his Fpech. he seldom referred to it. The address was punctuated by applause. The president said: Mr. Speaker and gentlemen of the notification committee: I am deeply sensible cf the high honor conferred upon me by representatives of the re publican p:irty assembled In conven tion, and I am ready to accept the nomination for the presidency with a solemn realization of the obligations I assume. I heartily approve the dec laration of principles which the repub lican national convention has adopted anti at some future day I shall com municate to yo-j. Mr. Chairman, more at length and in detail a formal writ en acceptance of the nomination. Threeyears ago I became president because of the death of my lamented predecessor. I then stated that it was my purpose to carry out his principles and policies for the honor and Interest of the country. To the best of my ability I have kept the prondse thus made. If next November my coun trymen confirm at the polls the action of the convention you represent, I shall, under providence, continue to work with in eye single to the welfare of all our people. We who have been entrusted with power a public ser- ants during the past seven years of administration and legislation now ome before the people contented to be judged by our record of achieve ment. In all of this we 'are more fortunate than our opponents, who now appeal for confidence on the ground, which some express and some seen to have confidentially understood, that f triumphant they may be trusted to prove false every principle wnicn in the last eight years they have laid down as vital, and to leave und'sturb ed those very acts of the admilnstra tlon because of which they ask that the administration itself be driven from power. Seemingly their present atti tude as to their past record Is that some of them were mistaken and others Insincere. We make an appeal in a wholly dif ferent spirit. We are not constrained to keep silent on any vital question. We are divided on no vital question : our policy is continuous and the same for all sections and localities. There Is nothing experimental about the gov ernment we ask the people to continue In power, for our performance in the past, our proved governmental efficien cy. Is a guarantee as to our promises for the future. In dealing with the great organiza tions known as trusts, we do not have to explain why the laws were not en forced, but to point out that they ac tually have bfen enforced and that leg islation has beer, enacted to Increase the effectiveness? of their enforcement. We do not havt? to propose to "turn the rascals out,"' for we have shown In very deed that whenever by dili gent Investigation a public official can be found w ho has betrayed his trust he will be punished to the full extent of the law without regard to whether he was appointed under a republican or a democratic administration. By financial legislation which we have enacted there Is now ample circulation for every business needed and every dollar of this circulation is worth a dollar In gold. We have reduced th Interest bearing debt and in still larger measure . U 1, , tV,,. All' llllf Hilt I ir.-rl. VJ 1 1 111.4.1 uciyi. -i ' of the war taxes imposed during the Spanish war have been removed with a view 'to relieve the people and to pre vent the accumulation of an unneces sary surplus. We have enacted a tariff law under which during the past few years the country has attained a height of ma terial well being never before reached. Wages are higher than ever before. That whenever need arises there should be be a readjustment of the tariff schedules is undoubtedly tru. but such changes ran be made only by those whose devotion to the ptin clple of x protective tariff Is beyond question, for otherwise changes would amount not to readjustment but to re peal. Readjustment when made must maintain "and not destroy the protec cive principle. The standard of living of our wage workers is higher than that of any other country, jttid it cannot so re main unles t. have a protective tar iff which shall always keep as a mini mum a rite of Juty sufficient to co ver the difference between the labor cost here and abroad. These who, like our opponents, ""denounce protec tion as robbery" thereby explicitly commit themselves to the proposition that if they were to revise the tariff no j heed would be paid to the necessity of meeting this difference netAeen stand ards of living for wage workers here and in other countries. We recognize the organization of capital and the organization of labor as natural outcomes of our industrial system. Each is to be granted the full protection of the law, and each in turn is to be held to strict obedience to the law, for no man is above it anj no MR.n is below It. In inaugurating the great work of Irrigation in the west, the administra tion has been enabled by congress to take one of the longest strides ever taken under any government toward utilizing our vast nation it domain for the settler, the actual home seeker. Ever since this continent was dis covered the need of tan Isthmian canal to connect the Pacific and the Atlantic has been recognized and ever since the birth of our nation such a Canal has been planned. At last the dreatn has become a reality. The isthmian canal Is now .being built by the gav ornment of the United States. Our foreign nolicy has been so con ducted that, while not one of our Just claims has Veen sacrificed, our rela tions with all foreign nations are now of the most peaceful kind; there Is not a cloud on the horizon. The las. -iausi of irritation between us and any other nation was removed by the set tlement of the Alaskan boundary. In the Caribbean 3ea, w e" have made good our promises of independence to Cuba, and have proved our assertion that our mission In the island was bne of justice and not of self aggrandize ment, and thereby no less than by our action in Venezuela and Panama we have shown that the Munroe doctrine Is a living , reality. American interests In the Pacific have rapidly grown. American en terprise has laid a cable across this, the greatest of oceans. We have proved In effective fashion that we wish the Chinese ejripire well and de sire its integrity and indepsndeiice. Our foothold "in the Philippines greatly strengthens our .position in competition for tn?Je in the east but we are governing the. Philippines in the Inferest of tjie Philippine people themselves. FLOOD WATERS FLOWING Biggest Rise in Salt River That Has Occurred for Months. Whatever the facts concerning the controversy between the farmers and the Arizona Water Co. respecting the condition of the ditches or whatever the outcome of negotiations it is pretty certain now that the farming lands will receive at least one good wetting this week. The flood of a few days ago .wet up some of the land and thoroughly soaked the ditches as far as the waters extended and yesterday there was another rise in the river, exceeding the former rise somewhat !ii maximum volume and exceeding it greatly in duration. Though there was no rain here in the valley for two or three days, yes terday morning about 6 o'clock the river at the Arizona canal dam began rising and by 9 o'clock it was run ning over the dam two and a half feet deep. It did not stay at this max imum height long and shortly lower ed about six inches, where it remained till last report about 5 o'clock laist evening. The flood reached the joint head, this side of trie Tempe bridges about noon yesterday and from that timet on till last report, last evening, the river was unfordable south of Phoenix. I; doubtless remained so all night for It takes at least seven hours for th water to run by here after- leaving the Arizona head, and there is hope ut least that the me flood conditions will obtain today and 'as much longer as possible. Last evening it was reported from Evergreen, .where the crosscut heads in the Arizona, that the Arizona was carrying 35,000 inches. About 16,000 inches was reported coming In at the joint h'id making a total of at least 50.000 Inches flowing on 'the north side lands. The three lower canals were reported carrying good heads of water Ia.t evening in their upper reaches and the Arizona below the crosscuts, was reported to be carrying about 5,000 inches. If this flow kept up all night. as It seemingly must have done, all the canals ought to be full their entire length this morning and even though they may be somewhat filled with f and it would seem as though one gaoj wetting at least is assured Jo all the lands. It was reported by passengers who arrived from the north yesterday tUn the section around Jerome .Tnnrtin.i and from there to Ash Fork, had beep , visited by very heavy rains and .. - J ' vu it. thp area covered by the JuniDer forest In the neighborhood of Hell canyon, looked almost like a lake from ti,.-. car windows. That section of the country drains very largely Into th Verde river, wherefore there is a well rounded hope that the Verde may con tinue to pour its precious, flood into the Salt river for some days to come. It is said to have rained every diy this week at Iron Springs in some quantity, and the appearance of the clouds here has suggested lhln at no great distance away in nearly every direction, nearly every day for a week. o RYAN WILL COME BACK The Turfman Consents After an At tempt at Delay. New York, July 27. After an all day conference between his counsel and representatives of the circuit attorney's office at St. Louis, John J. Ryan, the turfman, who was arrested at Brigh ton Beach race track yesterday after noon on a charge of grand larceny to the amount of $S0O,00O. today consent ed to return to St. Louis in custody without further protest. Ryan had been released on bond last night and presented himself at the office of the district attorney here early today. In the meantime, however, his at torney had proposed to resist the St. Louis officers. They contended that icy an nad already been put In Jeop-; aruy on the same charge; that he was not the person desired in the com plaint, and that he would be subjected to great financial loss and Inconven ience if compelled to leave New York at this time. The attorneys explained mat Jtvan had arranged to sell hi3 horses here tomorrow and that he de sireci to be present at the sale. In view of these conditions, they declar eu mat in the event of the St. Louis officers moving for immediate action tney would nsk for a writ of habeas corpus for the release of their client from custody. On the other hand. If a little time were allowed, Ryan would agree to return to St. Louis without trouble. When this situation was explained to Circuit Attorney 'Folk at St. Louis by long distance phone he first consented to parole Ryan upon the latter's prom ise to present himself at St. Louis afier the date for his trial had been fixed. Later in the day, however, the circuit attorney informed his representatives here that such a plan would be imprac ticable as the law would not perrn!t him to give bail in this state on a war rant issued in St. Louis. o STOCKS FORCED DOWN The Market Farther Depressed by Liquidation.

DOORS CLOSED Packers Refuse to Further Deal With Strikers TIIE OLD BASIS OR NONE Tbe Chicago Disturbance Threatens to Spread to the Railroads The Sympathetic StriKe Oat of Chicago Has Not Made Great Headway. Chicago, July 27. "We had an agree ment with Mr. Donnelly's organization and the allied trades, which they failed to live ,up to, and undr the ciicum stances we do not care to make any further agreements with them." This is the statement which was signed by the representatives of the packers and handed to the members of the state board of arbitration tonight et the end of a conference between the two bodies, held at the icquest of the state board in an endeavor to bring j about another meeting for a settlement of the butchers strike between tee packers and striker. The packers received the state board courteously and listened to their argu ments for a peaceable adjustment of the difficulty. The annoucement that the packers were opposed to any fur ther peace negotiations was handed to the board by Arthur Meek and Thoma Connor, both of Armour and company, who represented the packers. While from their statement it woull appear that packers are opposed to meeting the strikers again on any terms, but such is not the case. At the last conference between the strikers and the packers the latter informed the union leaders that any time they ex prepscd a desire to live up to the orig inal aibitration agreement, signed a week ago, which provided for a rein statement of the striking butchers In- Flde of forty-five days, and for anrbi tration of all grievances, the packer would be willing to renew the agree ment. The contention of the pf.ckers is that this agreement is still in force and as they are unwilling to offer any further concessions to the strikers they say a tnewal of peace negotiations with the hope of securing better terms would be uselesss. Labor leaders say that when the butchers went out on th" second strike because of alleged dis crimination ty the packers in rehiring the striking employes, the arbitration agreement was nullified and that it H necessary to sign a new agr.virent be fore a settlement can be reached. After tonight's conference with the Ftate board of arbitration A r! tin Meeker, manager for Armour and com pany, said that the packers were stl!l willing to live up to th terms of the orlginSl agreement, but that the Initia tive would have to be taken by the stridors. Mr. Meeker also Intimated that the sooner the strikers adopted this course the better it would be for them, as In his belief If the strike should last much longer all the places of the strikers would be filled by new men and there would be no necessity for the packer.') to wish to settle on any basis with their old employes. Notwithstanding today's failure to bring the contesting parties together. another attempt. It wis said tonight. would be made tomorrow .o arrange a conference between the packers and the strikers. James H. Walker, a grain broker on the Chicago board of trade, is the man who proposes to do what the state board of arbitration failed to accomplish. Mr. Walker was In consultation tonight with the le: ders of the allied trades unions and several of the packers. He said he had made considerable progress toward the desir ed conference and that it was his firm belief that before tomorrow night ho would be able to announce that his mission had been a success. "Police rule" today was declared In the stock yards region. During the day there were several minor disturb ances In spite of the police, but when right came Chief of Police O'Neil said he was master of the situation. At least one thousand new employes were taken into the yards and put to work. Clarence Hall is the first victim to die as a result of the strike. He was passing on a wagon during a riot near the yards and received a bullet wound. Joseph V. Haram was found today suf feting from several knife wounds. Upon regaining consciousness he said he had been attacked by stiik ers. Two arrests were mad. Desnite the fact that a relief fund of $60,000 was voted last night to al leviate the distress of strikers arid their families who are in want, ther was little change today In the condi tion of thousands of poverty stricken strike sufferers. Applicants for re lief are rare although it is said that want confronts hundreds and scores are actually hungry now. Tonight forty freight handlers em ployed at the stock yards station of the Chicago junction railroad went on strike. The men said they wer unwilling to handle meat turned out by non-union workmen. Should no-i-union men be engaged to take th places of the fleight handlers, a stride of the union switchmen may follow. With the switchmen out the stii'-. might spread to other employes of various railroads. When the union t-amsters went on strike the Chicago Junction ralroa.l was depended on by the packers a a means of supplying their down town customers. The strike tonight, how ever, leaves the packers without an outlet for supplying the city trade un less non-union men can be obtained An attempt to deliver meat with non union teamsters would without doubt precipitate rioting, as the new men WOUld he Vin ri-,1 , J i ,. .
