No News From the Opposing Hosts in the North Rus sia Abandons Notion of Passing the Dardanelles. Che Foo. Aug. 3. The steamer Wu i how, which has just arrived from New Chwang, brings furth-r detail; i.f ihe latest Japanese assault on Port .Aithur. When nearing (.'he Foo, the Wuchow picked up a junk currying .even men, four women and one boy, who left Port Arthur yesterday. They reported that fighting north of the city of Port Arthur occurred at Wolf Hill, and was sanguinary, lesulting in the repulse of the Japanese. Tliis hill is a situation near the railroad, ainl eight train? v.-ere kept busy bringing wouiw! ed soldiers into the city. Wounded men from, the east forts reached Port Aithur in all kinds of vehicles, many, however, coming afoct, dragging their shattered limbs. The Russians unite in declaring that the foruefifs will never fall, but they expect that scarcely a building will be left in the city, where now there is scarcely a. whole pane of glass. The Wuchow confirms the statement that the fighting abated during tho r.igl.'t of July 2Sth. but had not com pletely subsided when the refugees left. The Ru.-s-ian licet, from its anchorage, shelled the advancing Japanese, after returning from what seems to have been reconnoitering maneuvers. The Chinese arriving hete tonight say that the Japanese actually cap itu.:ed two lightly guirisoued forts ,on the east shore, but abandoned them when their comrades were reputed from the other positions, Russians, however, insist that this is untrue. The lorts at Porn Arthur wit'tle with gun. including many of S-inch calibre, l-ui the ncval artillerymen are alleged to have inflicted the heaviest loss on the Japanese. The present unusual cxc-lus from Port Aithur is due to the granting of; pei mission to leave lh beseieed ity. which heretofore Russian officials have j withheld. In, most instance-., tho itfa- gees are peo le of the better chw who , are compelled to pay exorbitant i: ices for junks, which ate scarce.

AN OMINOUS SILENCE. The Day Brought Not a Word From Ku:-opatkin. St. Petersburg, Aug. 3. There h is been a complete and ominous silence regarding events at the front since the receipt of General Kuropatkin'a brief dispatch on August 2. ' Kven thi3 meagre official information was an ticipated by earlier advices to the As sociated Press. There are neither official or , press dispatches late tonight to indicate the progress of the lighting around- Liao Yang, where it Is felt .that a most ser ous situation must exist. It s thought possible that there may be a temporary lull. The ' terrible heat alone would be enough to demoralize the armies, and it would not be sur prising if. coupled with several days of severe fighting, it forced both sides ta halt to recuperate.

STRIKE WIDENS fiicago Is Likely To Without Fresh Meat VH0 WILL BE THE ICEMAN? he Teamsters' Union Comes to the Aid of the Butchers The Allied Trades in St. Louis Turn Ag'ainst the Packers A Chicago Riot. Chicago, Aug. 3 The threatened spread of the stock yards strike to out Ride Industries came tonight when an order was issued by the teamsters' un- on forbidding drivers of ice wagons to make any dt.-livei ies to retail butchers who, since the packing house teamsters went on strike, have bn hauling meat from the yards In their own wagons. s: the refrigerators in most niaikets la not hold enough ice to last longer nan 4i hours, the aider -to cut off the supply of Ice, if it can be enforced, means that many persons in Chicago will be compelled to forego fresh meat. The officers of the teamsters' union have appointed pickets to watch the retail markets all over Chicago with nstructions to see that the boycott is cairried out. Outside of the d'ecision of the strik- ng unions to extend the strike to the cemen there was little change at the stock yards. AYith 'their new employe arwl those that have deserted the un ions, the packers managed to dispose of fully SO per cent as much work as is carried on under normal conditions. Fewer than three hundred new em ployes arrived at the various plants to day, this, beinng ahe smallest number of strike breakers received during any day since the employers decided to bring outsiders to Chicago to break tho strike. Tho packets decla-iel that the reasonfor the small addition to their forces today was thait they were about through hiring workmen and were now- choosing only skilled men. While admitting that the packets are doing considerable business, the stiike leaders declare that the employe! s are losing money on every animal that is slaughtered, as the unskilled workers waste all the by-products. It Is on this waste that the strike: s base their hopes for final success, arguing that it is only a matter of time until the em ployers will become tired of lo-in;.- money and will make overtures to the union for settlement. In a riot which broke out at- the yards tonight, two policemen were injured and' t wenty-flve rioters were arrested after being l-ett en Into subjugation. Tru trouble smarted when five strike brakMi from one of the machine sho-ps In one- of the packing plants were leaving the yards and tried to hoard a street car to go to their hemes. Des-pite the signals of the strike breakers the motormen on twelve cars refused to stop, and the crowd seeing a good opportunity to go revenge on the non-union men, legai to hurl stones at them. Two policemen who were guarding the entrance, wen to th assistance of the non-union men but the rioters by this time had grown in numbers so rapidly that fully thousand angry men were trying to get aCthe strike breakers. Retreating into a machine shop, the policemen sent in a riot call for rein forcements. When additional police men an i veil a charge was made on the rioters. The crowd was armed with bricks and stones and when the police-' men started forward every man who could find room enough to do so, threw a brick. Two bucks went true to the mark, and two policemen dropped with wounded he-ads. They were carried by their companions to the machine shop. Seeing the condition of their compan ions, the other eighteen policemen made another charge on the crowd. This time the onslaught was In earn est, eighteen clubs being swung from right to left with all the muscle that each man could muster. Kach time a clb descended it landed on a man's head, and fully fifty of the rioters wore beaten to the pavement in this manner before they showed any signs of scat tering. As sx-on as the policemen saw that they had the mob on the run, they turned their attention to' these who were lying on the ground and arrested twenty-eight rrieru ST. LOUIS SYMPATHY. St. Loute.

Denison, Tex., Aug. 3. Conductors of both the north, and south division of the M. K. & T. railroad and the Brotherhood of Railroad Trainmen lave informed the deputy president of the Order of Railway Telegrapher that they will not handle any moru freight in the place of the striking operators, who have acted as ageivts for he railroad company. Superintendent R. G. Sullivan of the Missouri. Kansas and Texas, tonight made the following statement: "We now have about twenty-seven opera tors at work on the Dallas and Fort Worth division. They are old men. We havej plenty of new men to supply he vacancies of strikers, but do no. need them. All the agents on thi Dallas and Fort Worth.

The platform committee wan headed by" John H. Reagan. The plank against nepotism which has been a burning issue in Tt-xaa, is mild, but the next legislature is called upon to en act a statute forbidding it. One plank calls for a law limiting free transporta tion to railroad owners, orTiccis and employes. Senator Culberson formally accepted the nomination for United Stales senator. Fonner Governor Hogg's- speech lauding President Roosevelt,' was the principal topic of the day. It gave an opportunity for former Congressman Ball to answer and tils' answer did much to elect Frank Andrew's chair man of the legislative committee, which furnished the only real contest of the convention.

NOTIFICATION Ceremonies at Indianapolis in the Presence of Thousands of Enthusiastic Republicans Chairman Root's Comparison lican Candidate With the Senility of the Correspond ing Member of the Democratic Ticket Mr. Fairbanks Address of Acceptance of the Commission Conveyed to Him by the Notification Committee. , Indianapolis, Aug. 3. Unitod States Senator Charles W. Fairbanks was to day formally notified of hiu nomina tion for vice president of the United States by -the republican national con vention. The notification address was made by Elihu Root, temporary chair man of the convention. Senator Fairbanks was given an ova tion when he accepted the nomination. Five thousand persons from differ ent parts of the country were assem bled around Fairbanks' home where the cei-emotiy occurred. Addressing Se nator Fairbanks, Chair man Root on behalf of the notification committee, said: "The committee which now waits up on you was apiointed by the national convention of the republican p.trty held at Chicago in June, and its agree able duty is to notify you of your nom ination as the iepublicun c-andidate lor the office of vice president or the Unit ed States for the term' beginning on the 4th day of March, 1905. "We give you formal notice of that nomination with assurance of the undi vided aind hearty supiort of the grea.t party which, has executed the people's will in the government of this country for the better part of the last half cen tury. The ncimination comes -to you in accordance with the best methods and practices of representative government. It was the result of lung and eainest consideration and discussion by the members of the convention. It was not the chance prouiict of an excited hour, apd it was not upon the demand of ivny powerful influence political t .or other wise constraining the judgment of the deltgatep. If was not made'1 for the purpose of conclliaitir g possible mal contents, or of swelling the campaigu furvl of the 1 arty. No bargains or in trigues contributed to it. No suppres sions of the truth or misleading of the convention as to your principles and opinions were liwcessary to bring it about. It was the deliberate, inform ed and intelligent judgment of the del egates front every state and territory, and it was their unanimous judgment. 'It- is a great ofnee to which you are called. John Ada met, and Thomas Jef ferson, and George Clinton, and John C. Calhoun, and Martin Van Bu:e.n, and many , others whose names are illus trious in the history of our country, have filled it. It is an office of high dignity and immediate, ever present imiKrtance. The credit and honor of our country are greatly concerned in the character aind conduct of the man who presides over the senate af the United States that powerful and au gust body, of which you are already so experienced, so useful and so honored a. member. "As to the supreme iesponsibility o the vice presidency in case of succes sion to the presidency, we shall all pray, and no one more earnestly thin yourself, that it may not come to you. But we are not at liberty to ignore the possibility that it may come. Sad, and bitter experience admonishes us that provision for succession to he presi dency is no idle forrn Of the last twelve presidents elected by the people of the United States five nearly one- half have died in office and have been succeeded by vice presidents. A seri ous obligation rests upon the political parties which select the candidates be tween whom the people must choose, to see that they nominate men for this possible succession who have the strength of body and mrnul and charac ter which shall enable them, if occa. sion comes, to take up 'the burdens of the great presidential office, to endure its trying and exhausiting- demands, to meet its great responsibilities, and with clear vision to guide the government of .the country until the people can ex press their choice again. "Our opponents of the democratic party have slgneUly failed to perfoim this duty. They have nominated as their candidate for the vice presidency an excellent gentleman, who was born during the presidency of James- Mon roe, and' who before the 4th of March next will be in ithe eighty-second year of his age. Before the next adminis tration is ended, he will be approaching his eighty-sixth birthday. It is no dis paragement of this gentleman, for whom I believe we all have the high est respect, to say that he shares -ihe common lot of mortals, and that the election of any man of such great age would furnish no safeguard to the American people against the disaster Which would ensue upon the death of a president with a successor not com petent to perform the duties of the presider-tial office. It is common expe rience thait very aged men, however bright and active they may appear for brief periods, cannot sustain long con tinued revere exertion. The demands of the presidential office upon the men tal and physical vitality are so great, so continuous and o exhausting, as to be wholly beyond the capacity of any man of eighty-five. The aittempt by such a mar. to per form the duties of the Office would with practical certainty be speedily followed by a. breakdown both of body and mind. Ini contemplating the re mote possibility of the election of the OF FAIRBANKS of the Vigor of the Repub democratic candidate for vice pr--dent, the j-ople of th country jit bound to contemplate al- as a n . - sary result of such an election bi 4- of the pre.-udf nt's death, that oth.i. not chosen by the people. and w- ki:a not who, would govern in the name a nominal successor unable hliix-. 1ft perform the constitutional du!is tf ;' office; or worse still, that s-ri-is doutt whether the-vice president had :. re-aclie-d a condition of "inAbility" with in the moaning of the rirititu'.loia would throw the title to the e-r!i'-- r-t president into dispute. "The serious effect of such an event upen the governm -nt and upon :he luf. iness Interests and general welfar - of the country, and the seiious efTet i ev en of the continual menace of fu. k an event, must be apparent o "very thoughtful mind.

In 'reply Senator Fairbanks said: " "Mr. Root and gentlemen of tl committee; I thank you for the vejf . generous terms in which you ha conveyed 'the official notification of rr.r nomination for vice president f t: United States.
