KUROPATKIN SATISFIED. The Russian People Are However Dis appointed. St. Petersburg, Aug. 20. All news from Liao Yang, oMi.ial or otherwise, shows that General Kuropatkin is giadually drawing in his advanced positions to the inner rin;r of his de fenses. After threp days of heavy fighting the latter part of whi.'h was impeded by the rain the Russians were com pelled to disable six guns, which it was impossible to take from then high positions over muddy roads, br.t during the lighting on the southern front, they captured some Jap nose guns. It is reported also that they destroyed some Japanese mountain batteries. Kuropatkin has not yet disclosed whether he intends to make a decisive fight 'it Liao Yang. General disap pointment is expressed by the news paper correspondents at the withdrawal now in progress. The statement that the reserves were not called upon to hold some positions which were aban doned seems to show that there Is a strong force at Liao Yang, which wia not yet being utilized. At the same time from private messages received from Liao Yang, it might bo inferred that a heavy movement northward has been progressing for some days. Kuro patkin appears to be very well satis lied with the situation. Nothing has been heard here regard ing the reported cutting of the railway south of Mukden, but the unusual mass of telegrams arriving, some of which were filed late on Sunday night at Liao Vang, seems to discredit the rep irt. Had the Japanese destroyed the railway, they doubtless would also have cut the wires. AN ARTILLERY BATTLE. Ix.ndon, Aug. LS.

PORT ARTHUR SITUATION Latest Information Confirms Earlier Reports. Chefoo, Aug. 2S. Information which to a very great extent confirms pre vious reports of the condition at Port Arthur was received here today by junks which left there on August 24 and August 26. The most important statement agreed to by the passengers on these junks who were Interviewed by the correspondent of the Associated Press, confirms the reports that the Russians have been driven from the fort immediately east of the railroad. This fort is named Rihlungshan, and is tainted on the tail of the Dragon hills, along the summits of which the eastern defenses of Port Arthur are built. When the Russian forces retired frcm Tort ltzshan, they entered Fort No. l.", to the north of Chao Chanko. During the nights of August IS and 19, while it was raining, the Japa nese attempted to storm Fort Antz- shan, which is a strong position adjoin ing ltzshan toward the city, but they were repulsed with heavy losses. During the night of August 22, a he roic band of 500 Japanese attempted to capture Fort No. 5 in the midst of a storm. Almost the entire detachment was killed. The Chinese declare, how ever, that the Russians have evacuat ed Fort No. 5, but whether by reason of this assault of the Japanese artil lery fire, cannot be learned. The Jap anese are unable to occupy Fort No. The fighting from August IT to 22 was severe, but sinte the latter date it has been comparatively light. On August 26 the fort on Liaoti mountain was filed on fiom six Japanese tor pedo boats, tut the result of this ac tion is not known. Russia.n marines have left the ships in the harbor and are woiklng at land batteries. Shells from the Japanese fire continue to fall in Port Arthur and the dock yards and the warships have scattered about the harbor in attempts to protect them stives fiom the enemy's piojectiles. Chinese who are employed on the docks at Port Arthur say that the bat tleships Retvizan, Poltava and Sevas topol are badly damaged. The first mentioned ship rests low in the wat2r by the stern. Thp battleship Pobieda is in fighting condition. There are also four gunboats and several torpedo boat destroyers in the harbor. A recent re port that eight destroyers escaped from Port Arthur cannot be confirmed. The Japanese are constructing forts at Port Louisa, northeast of Port Ar thur. FRANCE FAVORS FEACE But at the Same Time Sees no Present Prospect. Paris, Aug. 2S. The French govern ment Is not aware of any present movement for mediation in the war. This statement, coining from higher quarters, was made in response to in quiries icgarding the renewed reports of the peace movement. The fact is that France is ready and anxious to offer mediation whenever there Is the slightest chance that It will be accept able or effective, but Foreign Minister Delcaisse and other officials feel that no such effort can succeed at the pres ent time. However, a. strong official opinion is growing that France, Great Britain and the United States should put their shoul.lers together to avert the increasing dange." of a Japanese victory which may be so great that she may become a dominant power in the far east.

LACKAWANNA'S FORCE CUT. One Man Taken Off All Trains Except Those in Passenger Service (Scrantcn, Pa., Aug. 28. There is talk of a strike among the trainmen and conductors of the Lackawana rail load because of the action of the com pany here today in laying off one trainman fiom each crew making thiough trips, except on passenger trains. This throws the extra work on the conductor and the other trainmen, and they asserted today that they would refuse to do it. The company says the introduction of the air brake on coal and freight trains renders the services of the thiid trainman unnecessary, y STRIKE EFFECT Livestock Movements This Year and Last HOW JULY SUFFERED For Seven Months of the Tear Though There Was a Slight Increase in the Five Principal MarKets in Spite of the StriKe. Washington, - Aug. 28. Comparative receipts of live stock during July ut live western markets, as reported to the department of commerce and labor through its bureau of statistics, show the extent to which this branch of domestic commerce has been affected by the packing house strikes. Compar ing July of this year with July of last year, there has been a decrease of over a million head of live stock, or from 2,620,040 head in 1303 to 1,554.451 heat in 1901, at the five markets of Chicago, Kansas City, Omaha. St. Louis and St. Joseph. Cattle receipts fell off 42 per cent: calves, 54 per cent, hogs, 39 per cent; sheep, 40 per cent, and horses and mules, 9 per cent. In the number of cars of stock handled the month's record shows a decrease in. traffic of railroads from 52.752 cars in July, 1903. to 30.741 cars in July, 1904, or a loss of 41 per cent. The comparative position of the sev eral markets may be sten from the fol lowing table showing receipts for the month of July, 1903 and 1901, with per centages of decrease in the number of animals and of cars received: Animals.

Total 52,752 .li.Til Comparing July with June ofthis year the figures both as to the number of stock received and of cars handled in dicate a heavy loss of traffic. Not in frequently July is the lighter month of . the two in the live-stock trade. In this case 1,151,217 head, 'or 42 per cent less wete received in June, and 21,418 cars less were received, or an average loss of 1,3X8 cars per working day from the beginning of the strike to the nd of the month. The returns from the markets taken separately show as a rule that while receipts fell off rapidly lcal consump tion was still more notably reduced. At Chicago, for instance, dry use and local consumption were only one-half that of July, 1903, at Kansas City les than half, at Omaha 60 per cent less. and at St. Joseph 59 per cent. Comparing receipts for seven months at these five markets, the total of this year was on July 31 still well '.a f.d- ance of either that of 1902 or 1901. Chi cago's arrivals were slightly a'.ie.i 1 of 1903, but below those of 1902. and Omaha and St. Joseph dropped "oelo-.v the receipts of 1903. St. Louis ran i'ar ahead of 1903.

The average stocks on hand nt the end of each of the first six months of this year was 2S1,155,12G pounds, while the total at the end of July was 268,457,558 pounds. The extent of shrinkage in cut-meat stocks was therefore only 4.5 per cent from the average for the first half of the year. The shrinkage in local consumption of cattle, hogs and sheep at Chicago, Kansas City, Omaha a.nd St. Joseph was 56.3 per cent, comparing corres ponding peiiods. The consumption of hogs alone averaged at these four mar kets during the fit ft six months of the year 1,048,250 head monthly, com pared with 469,322 head In July, or a decrease of f5.2 per cent.

Packers in Kansas City made more progress In getting new men into' their plants last week than any week since the strike set in, and all of them- are now' working to very near their capa city. Not only have they more new men, but the unskilled workmen are becoming more adept at the work, and the plants are therefore able to slaugh ter nearer their full capacity. o TWO STEAMERS SUNK.

A Utah World's Fair Exhibit Separates Gold From Baser Metals. St. Louis, Aug. 28. Gold, silver, cop per and lead that have rested in thi same "ore since the world began, sep arate themselves at one of the unique exhibits at the world's'faiir, and seem lngly of their own volition, before the eyes of the visitor, carry themselves in a most mysterious fashion to compart ments that man has prepared for them. There is always something fasci nating about grains of bright and shining gold, and doubly so when the metal is displayed in great quantities. This may be seen ;in Utah's great ex hibit In the palace of mines and met allurgy, where at the same time and place may be inspected one of the most mysterious machines that the ingenu ity of man has invented. Not alone may the visitor look, but he may touch and examine at will, and even more. He will be given a quantity of the precious metal to carry away with him to do with as he will, and the souva- nir is not without value. The metal after all impurities ha3 been extracted is carefully placed into small glass phials, and these are given absolutely free to visitors. All of th metal may not be pure gold, but therj is some gold in each (bottle, and soma of the bottles conPain gold that will sell for as great a sum as fiv-e dollars. The mysterious machine -where th:a transformation of the metals take place is called the "New Concentrator,' and it represents absolutely the latest and most perfect machinery to be found in mining enterprises. The ma chine is no toy. It is a practical taing and does its work perfectly. It was installed at a cost of more than $20.- 000. Every day it uses up five tons of ore that is easily worth on the mar ket $50 a ton, and the product as given away to anyone who visits the Utah exmoit and will accept this unique souvenir or the fair. xne great machine, which stands 20 feet in the air, and is built of bur nished steel, copper and silver, is en dowed with an Intelligence In classi fying ore that the human mind can never acquire. It appears to exert a secret and mysterious power over the metals, and in compliance with Its wishes the particles seuarate and scatter helter-skelter to the home re pared for them.
