Advices re ceived from throughout the state the past week depict a serious state of af fairs on the big ranges in eastern and northern Montana, and unless a heavy rain is soon forthcoming considerable loss of stock will ensue. The north em Montana ranges in many localities resemble a desert, former waterin holes and springs being dry and parch ed. So bad have conditions become that the state humane oiiK-ers have in terfered and compelled the stockmen to drive herds into localities far removed where some grass and water still re nv.iin, though even that supply is scanty. The Great Northern company is meeting with difficulty In operating its trains throughout northern Montana as a result of inability to get sullicie nt water to keep' it's tanks along the road replenished. o ON MURDERERS' TRAIL, Three Men Hiding in a Swamp Surrounded.

One of the fugitives is injured, but not so as to prevent his flight. In parties of about twenty the pur suing men are scattered out over the entire boundary of the laurel thicket and swam;, which Is twelve miles long and eleven miles wide. Shortly after eleven o'clock a. m about six miles to the south of Port age, the three men were fired upon by a posse and one of the fugitives fell His companions lifted him to his feet and the three hurried into the swamp. leaving a trail of blood which was fol lowed for about fifty yards, but the men escaped. The search will be con tinued all n!ght and pickets are out watching every road and cow path lead ing from th'i swamps. Hundreds of others are forcing their way through the interior of the dense undergrowth The country Is so lough that it is im possible to get a horse to travel into the swjmn.

A BATTLE STORY Russian Report of Fight at Simancheng READS LIKE A. VICTORY Bat at the Same Time the Czar's Forces Lost Ground No Develop ments at Port Arthur Significant Gathering of German Warships. St. Petersburg, Aug. 4. The cfear has received the following dispatch from Lieutenant General Sakharoff, dated August 3: "Lieutenant General Zassalltch reports the following de tails: In the fighting of July 31, the operations were not decisive. The ac tion of the Japanese on our east front on Ju!y 30 convinced me that they were in -i. tng with tl.'eir main forces on our south front near Outuschoutoun to ward Deupoutzza and Pkhailantoun. "From dawn until daybreak of Juiv 31 we heard cannonading on our right tlank, wiiich obliged me to hurry down to the xuth front, where, at first from a battery and later from- a range of hills, I directed the course of the tight. 'The battle began under the most favorable auspices for us. Tho fiit report I received was from Lieutenant Colonel Solomcmsky, who informed me that he was tenaciously holding his position, although he had many wounded. I ordered at first two com panies, and thcii a battalion, to rein force him, although he did not ask for support. 'Simultaneously with the attack on the heights-, -the center of our position, the Japanese directed their att.ick ogainnst Major General Mistchensko's detahement and against our right Hank. "The beginning of the fighting show ed! the superiority of our artillery over that, of the Japanese, Not only did our batteries silence the Japanese guns previously in position and prevent them leaving their positions, but the batteries sustained no less and were able to develop their lire at leisure. "At 10 o'clock I received the follow ing note from Lieut. Colonel Solomon sky: 'The Japanese turning movement has been stopped, the enemy sustain ing enormous losses. We have many wounded. CapLan-i Golitinsky was kill ed. The wounded include two officers and a surgeon. I -am making a firm stand.' Simultaneously with the receipt of this report, it was seen tht our de tachment had evacuated three crests of the mountain range. It was evident that Solomoneky had too strong a force to cope with, and had been ob liged to give ground somewhat. He continued, however, to hold his posi tioo. "After reinforcing Solomonsky with two battalions and afterward with two and three-iuarters battalions and de siring to centralize the command of these troops, I dispatched Colonel Pol ovitch Lepovatz with orders to take command of all the troops engaged lu that position. The fusilade continued on our right Hank without becoming threat ening. Our artillery continued -io crush the enemy's artillery with its flre.'fll t hough the Japanese had brought mountain and. field guns into action "At 4:30 p. m. I received a repoit that a regiment prated at the extreme right flank had retired from its position, in the mountains, the Japanese having turned its Hank. Six disabled guns were abandoned. Two officers were killed and two wminded and the coin- I sr.cc-r of a battery wj.j,. Injuied. "Before this had happened the Jap anese had placed two more batteries on the left of those which had pre viously taken up their positions there, and with their batteries on the ex treme left, they began to bombard our battery as ell as to enfilade the right tlank of our formation. This was the cause of the destruction of our bat tery and the serious loss of troops on our right flank. "The battery was shattered, but at the beginning of the action we suc ceeded in saving four guns, while four others were left on the field disabled. Of the four saved, two had to be spik ed amd abandoned owing to lack of ho r sea. "With the view of distracting the at tention of the Japanese from our right flank I directed Col. Lepovatz at o'clock, when the heat was diminshed, to ord'.-r the soldiers to take off their equipment and assume the offensive. To support this offensive movement I ordered our batteries to open a hot fire on the ridges held by the Japanese. iThe fire of our guns, which had pre viously bombarded thlis point, was murderous and the Japanese again sustained -many killed or wounded. "Our attack in open order astonish ed all beholders. Our men in this for mation advanced quickly across the principal mountain range, rushing on bo'l'V. sides 'with fixed bayonets on the Japanese, who were unable to sustain the shock and quickly evacuated th three crests they had occupied. I am Informed by Major Kipamitze thn.t those who remained were bayoneted. After this brilliant affair, I ordered Col. Lepovatz to stop and push no further, At 7 o'clock I received an order to re tire in the direction of Hai Cheng. "According to the report of the com mander of a Cos-sack regiment which, reconnoitered the valley of Dapoutze during1 the battle as well -as organized the delivery of ammunition and the re moval of the wounded, threoi divisions of the Japanese were observed moving through the town of Haputzea. "Our losses on July 30 find July 31 have been up to the present estimated at twenty-nine officers and slightly more than 1,000 men killed or wound ed." The fact that there is no further news from the front beyond 'General Zassalitch's account of fighting at Simouc'.ieng on July 31 bears out th Associated Press explanation that the Japanese are halting to bring up sup plies,, especially ammunition, of whi.-h a modern engagement entails an ex travagant use, and without which It would be impossible even for- a vic torcus army j follow up -its success. The official estimate of a Russian losu of more than 1,000 agrees with figures In a belated dispatch from Llao Yang referring to the same fighting and which says that the Russians were ful ly prepared to hold their positions when commanded to retire, which was carried out In perfect order. The tro pical heat continues and there have been many sunstrokes. The receipt of General Zassalitch's dispatch was generally known today and gave rise to extravagant rumors of further fighting around Hal Cheng and several press dispatches Were .sent off describing a fresh battle be tween the forces of General Zassa litch and General Oku. There is no apparent justification for such reports. The best informed military authorities declare that there has been no fighting since the Russians fell bajk to-Liand-iansian, Amping and Anshanshan. A JAPANESE REPORT, A Story of the Battb Pass. of Mo Tien Gen. Kuroki's Headquarters, near Mo Tien Pass, July 22, via Seoul, Aug. 4. From the brief official reports arriv ing it appears: that the fighting of July 19 was severe. On July 17, the Ja panese attacked a superior force of the enemy occupying the strongest de fensive works. The attack r&sultfrl in forc ing the Rusr ians to retreat a!on the roads northward and westward, in bringing the right Japanese line ahead some miles and in clearing the wuy for the Japanese advance. The Japanese again outmaneuverod the Russians, who held the trenches. The Japanese flanked them on both sides, spreading a comparatively small force mto long lines. The Japanese loss was one officer and fifty-three men killed and fifteen officers and SCO men wounded. One company lost all ts officers. Two Russian officers and forty-five men were taken prisoners by the Ja panese. According to the officers' ac counts the Russian loss was several hundred. The bodies of more than 200 Russians killed on July 17 were buried or burned. Many of the dead were hidden in the woods two days be fore being discovered. The Chinese assert that many more were buried in the Russian lines. It is the consen sus of opinion that the European regi ments made a poorer showing against General Kuroki's troops than the Si berian regiments d5d. HCae condition of the Siberian troops is bad. Hun dreds are without boots and are wear ing Chinese shoes. - Russian deserters frequently enter the Japanese lines. A GATHERING FLEET. For Some Reason the Germans Are Hovering Near Port Arthur. Berlin, Aug. 4. The Vossische Zel tung Is Informed that the commander of the German East Asiatic squadron. Vice Admiral Von Prittw itz has ar rived at Che Foo on board his flagship, the armored cruiser Fuerst Bismarck, and that he has ordered the third class cruiser Seeadler to proceed from Che Foo to Chemulpo. From Chemulpo the Seeadler will sail to the gulf of Liao Tung. I he third German warship at Che too is the third class cruiser Thelis, while the third class cruiser Geier is stationed in the inner bay of Korea,. The Vossische Zeltung thinks that anticipation of great events at Port Arthur explains the presence of the four war vessels. THE JAPANESE STRENGTH. First Estimate of the Force Opposing Kuropatkin. New Chwang, Aug. 4. Kuroki, with 100,000 men now behind the Russian forces, Oku with 50,000 on their front, while flanking them on the left is Nod zu with 50,000. If Kuropatkin is de feated in this battle, he must move westward or surrender. The Rus sian forces at Port Arthur ore driven back to their last line of defense. The Japanese attacking force has 350 guns. CONFIRMATORY FIGURES. St. Petersburg, Aug. 4. The army organ declares that the events of the last ten days demonstrate that the Ja panese objective since the beginning of the war has been to strike the maia army of the Russians and not, as was popularly supposed to take Port Arthur It places the strength of Kuroki's army at 100,000 on the Saimatza and Liaa Yang road, and 30,000 on the road to Mtikden with 10,000 in reserve. This paper does not give the figures of Oku's and Nodzu's armies, which it is believed will bring the total close to 200,000. LATE OCCUPATIONS. Washington, Aug. 4. The Japanese legation has received the following tel egram from Tokio. "Oku reports that the enemy is retreating northward continually since Aug. 1. On Aug. 3 our army occupied Hali Cheng and New Chwang, situated thirty miles north of the port of the same name." f- PERIOD OF QUIET EXPECTED. St. Petersburg, Atig. 4 The war of fice does not expert the Japanese to resume their advance for several days. They arc probably again preparing a flanking movement on a large scale. It is expected that Kuropatkin will profit by the delay. MUST HAVE PORT ARTHUR. The Way the Jaoanese Are To Take It. PI anmng Tokio, Aug. 4. The Japanese are hourly awaiting tidings of Victory at Port Arthur. It is knov.n that the Japanese noose about the lty 13 grad ually tightening and it is felt that the critical hour Is fast approaching. There can be no charges of greac masses of Japanese infantry on the fortress until the artillery finishes the task of sil encing the Russian guns. The story is current that the emperor has ex pressed a wish that the capture be ef fected -with the smaHest possible sacri fice of life, hence these precautions are taken. RUSSIANS STILL RETIRING. London, Aug. 4. A dispatch to a news agency from Anshanshan says: "The Japanese advance Is being con tinued with great energy against the southern army. The Russian main forces contiinue their retirement north ward. Their cavalry, checked a Ja panese threatening flank movement. RUSSIANS DRIVEN IN. Tokio, Aug. 4. Twelve torpedo baa destroyers, four torpedo boat-i, aid some gunboats emerged from the harbor at Port Arthur the night of August 1, and were driven back by the Japanese warships oh guard outside.
