The Russian losses altogeth er were 1,450 killed or wounded. A loner official telegram has been re A SURPRISE Many citizens of Phoenix and the surrounding country were surpris ed on reading our page advertisement, of lxst Thursday to learn th it our fulUjusiiiess'-oarse contain:; so much and is so complete and thor ough. Many seemed to have an idea that all one learns In a business college is simply bookkeeping and shorthand. Therefore, when they read a description of our extensive olfi.-e pr.i!ieo system, banking, manufacturing auditing, voucher accounting, etc.; our thorough course in touch typewriting; our complete training in penmanship, lctier wriling, spelling.' English composition, grammar, commei -ial law, etc., etc.. they began to give the matter of a business- training for their children more consideration and as one prominent business man said: "If It were generally known that you give sivii a complete training for the practical duties of a business life, your present quarters would not accommodate one half the students that would apply for admission." Another said: "Why your course in Typewriting, r.mrr.anship and spelling aline would be worth the entire tuition." Still another: j "One simple fact that you te.uh in co:nme;c ial law would have saved me over $3,000, ju:-t two years ago had I known it." A father said: "You may expect both oT my sona for your coViplete course and above all I want them to learn to spell." Another said: " - - . - "If my hoy had to choose between your complete course and i collegs course I would prefer yours. It would give him a better prepara tion for life." A mother said: "I am so glad to know there is a school somewhere in which a stu dent can learn how to spell, how to write a letter, something of Eng lish composition and the general princ iples of commercial law." THERE IS A DIFFERENCE There is a difference and a great difference between the courses of fered by a responsible business college and those offered by their Imi tators. So greit is this difference that it simply means the differenca between success and failure.

It is then probable, however, that the Japanese have lesutned their at tempt to reach l.iao Yang. The si lence on this point of the special dis patches jiled at Liao Yang this morning rather confirms this view. The hottest fighting occurred in the valley of the Lan, a small tributary of the Taitse, and around Tsegow, a place between Anping and Llandiun sian. General Kuroki's first nim ap parently was to separate the two prin cipal Russian positions, as forecasted in these dispatches August 26. The Russians In the valley of the Lan lost 1,4.00 men. General Kuroki's army ad vanced in three strong columns, one northward along the valley of iSindia -hia, a tributary of the Taitse, as far as Liao Lin Tan, when a portion of this force marched westward to Miao Pass, threatening Anshanshan, the other po sition pushing up stream to Tunsian pu, four miles southwest of Liandian bian, where it was stopped by General Kuropatkin's Cossacks. The second column marched along the high rosid and occupied Erdahe, whence the Japanese batteries shelled Liandiansian, a couple cf miles north west, until the fire of the Russian guns silenced them. Severed Japanese batteries were completely dismantled and were abandoned by their gunners. The fighting at Tsegow was of the most desperate description. The JaptV- 15 E.

The latter place is situated on the high road, ten miles southeast of Liao Yang. Their position at this point would render Liandiansian and Anping untenable. It is not improbable that General Kuroki will therefore repeat his attack In this direction. The Japanese advance was charac terized by the greatest boldness and arouses the belief in military circles that either General Kuroki has receiv ed considerable reinforcements or that General Kuiopatkin has sent the great er portion or his army north, leaving only a couple of coias at Liao Yang. The absence of news of the Japanese movement along the Taitse river, in or der to flank Liao Yang, confirms, the latter view, as it would expose the at tackers to being cut off by General Ku ropatkin's main army from the north. FOUR DAYS AGO. The Russian's Then Hopeful of De fense at Port Arthur.- Ohefoo, Aug. 7. The latest reports received from Port Arthur are to the effect that the Japanese in their attack during the night of August 22 captured Poyodo, a fort midway between Taku- shan and the eastern defenses and rev duced another fort immediately east of the railway. Poyodo is mounted with only two small guns when the Russians weie Is possession of it. The assault was preceded by a heavy ar tillery fire from Takushan, where the Japanese have big naval guns. The Russians lost considerably before they were compelled to retire. The fort was not occupied by the Japanese as it is behind the t.ioat 'which the Japanese have in no Instance been able to cross. Recent arrivals here who were In Port Arthur as late as August 21 be lieve the Russian resistance will prove suecessful for some time yet. They ex plain that the Japanese are unable to occupy Ktseshan fort. The Japanese feinted constantly in attempting to do so and in the meanwhile by tremen dous labor raised the summit of a smaller hill behind it to the level of Ktseshan LH1 b mean:! of sandbags, and there they mounted guns which the fort cast of the railway. This fort the for east of the railway. This fort is the northernmost of the eastern de fenses, and with the other positions reduced or occupied, lenders the JajKi- nese positions in the vicinity of the railroad threatening to Russian hopes, it is obvious that the Japanese expert to enter Port Arthur from the north. Confirmation has been obtained in the announcement made In these dis patches August IS to the effect that the Japanese drove the Russians from their positions at Louisa Bay and Pig eon Ray, the Japanese vanguard, num bering C00 to COO men, penetrating into :he forest on the highest hill of the Liaoti mountain, the southet amos mountain cf Kwang Tung peninsul i. incidentally capturing a battery on the west shore of the Liaoto promontory and then retired. The Japanese fleet during the attack made a derronstra (Ion against Liaoti fort'. It is also con firmed that the Japanese silenced a small fort near Grd'ien Hill. The Japanese line on the west is ap proximately, according to advices re ceived here, three-and a half miles from the European, or New Town. where there has been no conflagration although numerous individual fires hav? occurred there. . When the last arrivals left Port Arthur, there waa little firing. The strengtji of the gar- i ison is now estimated to be 15,000 ef fieient men. On August 23, the Russians arrested four Japanese spies within the fortress and shot them. No Chinese except out bound servants are rJlowed In the Eu ropean town, the Russians being afraid of spies. Since August 21 the Russian ships have not been firing shells. On August 22 a shell fell in the dockyard, causing some damage. Only the Chinese shops of Port Ar thur are doing business. The lack of vegetables is severely felt. FOUGHT ONE FLANK ONLY. St. Petersburg, Aug. 27.A dispatch from General Kuropatkin to Emperor Nicholas, dated Aug. 2C, and referring to the fighting of August 2r. says the Japanese tcok the offensive only against the troops on the Russian left The strength of the Japanese was es timated at two divisions of infantry. with numeious guns. The Russian losses in killed or wounded were about a hundred. The dispatch continues: "At dawn on August 26 the Japanese assumed the offensive along the entire front of our army." A DIVIDED ATTACK.

Tokio, Aug. 27. The belief Is grow ing here that a great and decisive bat tle will be fought at Liao Yang. Gen eral Kuropatkin, who had an oppor tunity to abandon Iiao Yang and to remove the bulk of his stores and the majority of his army from that place. evidently has chosen to remain and give battle. He has concentrated his forces and intrenched carefully. The country is drying up speedily after the torrential rains and as soon as It is possible to resume operations the Jap anese may be counted upon to act vig orously and aggressively wherever the conditions permit. Confidence is felt here that the Japanese commander-in-chief in the field. Field Marshal Mar quis Oyama, with his splendid united armies, will outgeneral General Kuro patkin and force him to give battle on at least two of his fronts and even tually succeed in defeating him deci sively. COMBINED ARMIES. Kuroki and Oku Try to Cut the Rus sian Line. Liao Yang, Aug. 27. General Kuroki has joined forces with General Oku In an attempt to cut the Russian line east of Liao Yang. The battle of August 25 raged all along the eastern front. A strong Japanese force attacked the Russian positions at Mlao Pass, elev en miles east of Anshanshan and at Sandiatzl anil at Tsegow, ten miles northeast of Liandiansian. Nine bat teries of six guns each bombarded the Russian outposts. At these posts the combat repeats dly developed into hand to hand fighting. The Russians stub bornly held their outposts the whole day, falling back on their main po sition at night. The chief artillery en gagement was In front of Liandiansian, the Japanese concentratine the fire of ten batteries and simultuneosulv ad- f vanclng on Torintspu. four miles southwest of Liandiansian, but they Were arrested by the Cossacks, who were afterwards reinforce! by infantry and artillery. The Japanese resumed the bombard ment early on August 26, devoting most of their attention to Liandian sian. The Russian field guns were very effective. They dismounted thirty-two Japanese guns, mostly mountain pieces. The casualties have not yet been ascertained. A NEW MANCHURIAN ARMY. Russia Will Assemble One o fThree or Four -Corps. Berlin. Aug. 27. A dispatch to the Tageblatt from St. Petersburg says the Russian government is determined to assemble a second great army in Man churia, consisting of three or four corps, under the command of General Baron Kau'.bars or General Soukhom linorT. Its l.eadauarters will be at Mukden. The object of this step Is to meet a situation that will arise should Port Arthur fall, thus releasing the besieging army for operations north ward. The Tageblatt's correspondent names various commands out of whic-h the new army will be formed and says he believes that a more rapid transmuta tion of troops will be possible owing to the approaching completion of the rail road around Lake Baikal. A TOUCH PROPOSITION. Port Arthur More Difficult Than the Jaoanese Thought. Tokio, Aug. 27. Notidings of a de finite character from Port Arthur or Liao Tans have reached the public to day. It is understood that a lull fol lowed the desperate fighting of the earlier half of the week at Port Ar thur. The lull was for the purpose of allowing the men to rest, arranging certain things in the plan of attack and for completing preparations fo pressing the attack. home heavier. The Japanese began to shell the defense of the fortress, but a majority of the forces are not engaged. Port Arthur is proving harder to re duces and capture than the general public of Japan expected. The public which has been confidently anvaitiag the fall Of the fortress daily for the past month is disappointed at the delay Much regret Is expressed at the heavy losses, but the nation is unwavering In Its grim determination to hammer ami harass Port Arthur until it falls and It Is prepared to pay the cost, how ever heavy it may be. UNBELIEVED IN PARIS. The Latest Rumor That Port Arthur Has Fallen. Paris. Aug. 27. The rumored fall of Port Arthur Is not confirmed in any Quarter hero. On the contrary it is said in government quarters that the information received shows that the Japanese staff is convinced from re cent efforts that the taking of the for tress by storm will probably be im possible and that the staff has advis ed the adoption of a new plan, namely its slow reduction by siege. RUSSIAN'S DON'T BELIEVE IT. If it is True it Means the Capture of Port Arthur. St. Petersburg, August 27. The ru mor that the Japanese had effected an entrance into Port Arthur does not ob tain credence at the war office, al though it is admitted that no news has. been received from General Stoesel since August 22, though possibly a tel egram reached the emperor just be fore he started for the Don this after noon, tl Is pointed out that if the rumor is true, it would signify the ca-pture of the fortress, which would be unable to hold out against the su- perior numbers of the besiegers if any portion of the permanent defense M lost. 1 STILL UNINFORMED.

When No. 9 encountered the flood ten inches of water was pouring over the rails and threatened to carry away the track at any moment.

A SWIFT COLT Artful, the Winner of the Sheepshead Futurity ALSO BROKE A RECORD The Faverite, Sysonby, Was Left ia the Wake ef Tradition A Sporticrf Event in Which the BoeKmaSers Missed a Guess. New York, Aug. 27. Artful, a blown filly bred by the late William C. Whit ney and bearing the colors of Henna i R. Duryea today won the seventeenth renewal the futurity at Sheepshead Bay. Tridition, bred by James I!. Hag gin, and running in the name of Sidoey Paget, was second, while Sysonby. from the stable of James IL Keene and bred In England, finished third. The Keene entry, Sysonby and Wildinlnt. was the favorite In betting at 13 to 20, but was not heavily bac k.d. in view of the short price. The Duryea entry received the bulk of the public wageis at 5 to 2. Tradition was also played at good odd3 of 4 to 1 for plac e. The time made was the fastest on record over the six furlongs, the distance for the race since 1902. When the sixteen candidates paraded past the grand stand on their way to the post the excitement was Iuten. In the betting ring the struggle of the would-be players had for the half hour preceding bugle call been teniflr. Men trampled upon one another in a wilJ struggle to secure the best odds ot their favorites. Mr. Kee-ne's entry, which had oix-ned at 4 to 5, was buck ed down until 13 to 20 was the best price obtainable. Not a great deal t4 money was required, however, to for- the price, because every book mukr-r -in the ring openly expressed the be lief that Sysonby would win in a gal. lop. He had defeated his fields in pre vious races to impressively that thei seemed little probability of his failin to do so again. Artful, from the Duryea stables, had thirteen pounds the advantage on her not having won previously. With Hil debrand to ride her the entry reccivvt as second choice the bulk of play. A few minutes after four the horsee were lined up for the start. The iouim was almost a straight run for six fur longs and directly toward the stand and for that reason lacked much of the spectacular effect of a contest on a main track.. There was a. deLiy at the post, owing to the size of the field, but after a few minutes Starter Fitz gerald lined up the two year olds and sent them away. Sysonby, with Red fern up, was on his toes as the bar rier snapped, and got the rail. Artful got away second and raced head and head with Sysonby for three-eigths of a mile. Tanya and Tradition were third and fourth, and the other twelve were bunched behind them. Redfern seemed to have the race at his mercy, but the light weighted Artful never lost an inch, and as they rush-d past the half mile post Sysonby began to tire. Hlldebrand, quick to see hi, ad vantage, began to ride the fleet filly Inch by inch he crawled up. and ns they dashed by the five furlongs i ol he was lapping Sysonby's saddle. A great shout rang out as the racers tore down the brown stretch of dirt toward the finish and it was plain to b seen that the great son of Melton and Optimo was beaten. Tanya, which had been running third, gave way to Tradi tion, and Lynne, on the latter, worke 1 like a demon in the last seventy yards and succeeded in catching Sysonby. Artful In that distance had gone away at every jump. Passing under the wiie she was five lengths in front of Tradi tion, and the latter was a short head In front of Sysonby. Tanya was four lengths away in the fourth place, whil others were strung out hopelessly. To day's race, while not as rich by many thousands of dollars as some of th preceding ones, was worth a total of $56,290.- YELLOW FEVER IN TEXAS. Austini Tex., Aug. 27.
