17. When the Quantun; peninsula
was bisected by. the second Japanese
army, the entire Russian force In the
military district of Talien which In
cluded Port Arthur and Dalny, was
35,000. The Russian force at the bat
tle of Nanshan Hill was 4,000 and
2,000 of these were lost. There have
actually surendered at Port Arthur be

sailors, of whom many were unfit for
duty. The sick and wounded number
6,000. Fifty per cent of the othcers
of the garrison were killed, and only
twenty-eight (probably per cent) went
through the siege unscathed.

Japanese line3 for the purpose of suc
coring Port Arth'.ir but that he had
not bven successful.
A close examination of the main line
of defenses of the western half of th
western fortified ridges from c-aat
Kekwan Mountain to the destroyed
Sunshu Mountain forts, where the
Japanese assaults and bombardments
were concentrated during the last
days of the siege, demonstrated the
tremendous effectiveness of the eleven
inch howitzers. The Chinese wall on
the slopes, battery positions upon the
crest of the ridge and the captured
guarding forts in the rear were liter
ally torn to pieces by the heavy shells.
It is different to understand how th
infantry remained in the trenches be

breaches vero made. The traverses

Japanese infantry, which by a spirited
rush captured Wantai Hill. At 2 o'clock
on the following morning the Russians
exploded mines under the battery posi

well constructed of concrete, are now
an awful wreck, strewn with broken
guns and debris of all kinds. Not a ves

The Japanese always maintained
that there were strong Russian trench
lines In the gorge between the east
Kekwan-and north Kekwan Mountain
forts. This they called the "gho3t"
trench because they could never find It,
though hundreds of them were killed
every time they, attempted to do so. It
is now out, however, that there never
was a trench line at this point, but
that In attacking the gorge the Jap
anese were subjected to a most awful
enfilading fire from the .Kekwan
Mountain forts and ' the Chinese wall
making the passage up the gorge a
death trap owing to the machine guns.
.The Russian prisoners were kept
waiting a long time at Changlingtzu

THE CUTTING OF THE PIE
As Usual, Others Are BaKing to Be Di
vided Later The Legislature Gives
Evidence of Doing More Business
Than Some of Its Predecessors.
The legislature did some business
yesterday, but the problem of dividing
the pie overshadowed nearly every
thing else. The house decided for it
self how many pieces of pastry should
be apportioned, for the present for the
present only, mind you, for within a
few days, as in former legislatures, re
solutions will be adopted providing for
this and that additional clerk, third
assistant postmaster, assistant super
intendent of ventilation, and so on.
The council did not go to the length of
making public the number of places
which would be provided for the pie
hunters, but at a general caucus of the
democratic members of both houses
last night these matters were settled
in the main, and the lucky candidates
were placed on a secret roll which will
be promulgated today in official form.
The caucus did not bresk up until a
When the council convened yester
day morning the first business tran
sacted after the approval of the Jour
nal and the swearing in of Chaplain
llalsey was the seating of N. W.
Bernard as councilman from the Plma
Santa Cruz district. Dr. Looney,
chairman of the special committee on
elections, submitted a brief report,
signed by himself and Mr. Rice, In
favor of seating Mr. Bernard. The re
port recited that the committee had ex
amined the evidence In the case, and
had found that Bernard was elected.
Mr. Page, the republican member of
the committee, submitted a minority
report. The minority report recited
that as far as could be ascertained the
election for councilman from Pima and
Santa Cruz counties was a tie between
Candidates Bernard and Diekermari;
that the Investigation by the commit
tee had been wholly ex parte and no
opportunity had been afforded Mr.
Dickerman to present his case. It was
broadly intimated that the "investiga
tion" had been exceedingly perfunc
tory. The fact was that the seating of Mr.
L;ernard without serious opposition on
the part of the republicans had been a
forgone conclusion . for. twenty-four
hour. It -.wtts ,rrKuiieCr:rthat" the
democrats have 6 votes to the 5 on the
republican side, had the power to do
as they pleased, and it was not doubted
that they would please to seat Ber
nard. Moreover, some of the republi
can members had communicated with
Mr. Dickerman at Tucson, over the tel
ephone, and he had told them to mako
no efforts in his behalf; he did not wisn
to go to the expense of a contest be
fore the council, since he realized that
lii any event he would he defeated on
the final show down. So there was no
oratory when the reports were sub
mitted. Indeed, it is becoming a set
tled impression that no member of the
council proposes to do any orating at
this scpsion. They are all business
men. and speech making Is not in their
line. For the first time In many years
there is not a lawyer In the council.
Mr. Roemer moved the adoption of the
majority ..report, and President Hunt
demanded a rollcall. Mr. Bark, whose
name heads the alphabetical list of
members voted "no." Mr. Cutting,
whose name was called next, an
nounced th?t he was paired with Mr.
Nugent, who was absent on account of
Illness. The other republicans voted
"no" and the democrats "yes,"- and
thus Mr. Bernard was seated by a par
ty vote of 5 to 4. . Mr. Bernard was
promptly sworn in by President Hunt.
The president then stated that he
was prepared to announce the stand
ing committees of the council, and he
explained that in making up the com
mittees and allotting the chairman
ships he had decided to ignore party
lines. This was an Innovation. Upon
his feading the list of committees It
was seen that he had appointed each
republican member as chairman of a
more or less important committee. The
full list of the committees follows:

The council then proceeded to wres
tle with the statehood question. Th
house memorial, printed in yesterday's
Republican, had been referred to a 1
committee, along with another mem-
orial offered by Mr. Bark. . The com- :
mittee asked for time to consider .the i
memorials before them, and a recess
of fifteen minutes was taken. At the I
end of half an hour Chairman Rice re
ported that the committee had con
sidered the house memorial, the Bark
memorial, ana uie araii 01 a inira, ana
had finally decided to refer the ques
tion to the council for decision. Tlio
clerk read all three. It was taken for
granted that the house memorial
would not be accepted, and on motion
of Mr. Roemer the Bark memorial was
unanimously adopted as a ' substitute J
for the house memorial. Following is
the text of the council substitute: I

emphatically, protest against the pro
posal. It is without precedent tn
American history. It threatens to fas
ten upon us a government that Is
neither of, or by, or for the people of ,
Arizona. It would be a government
without the consent of the governed.
It humiliates our pride, violates our
traditions and subjects us to tho
domination of another commonwealth
of different traditions, customs and as
pirations. With no antipathy to the
people of New Mexico, we protest
against the proposed union; that In
this expression we voice practically
the unanimous sentiments of the peo-1
Discussion ensued as to what sena
tors individually copies of the memor
ial should be sent. It was proposed that
it be telegraphed to Senators Bailey
and Bate, both democrats. Mr. Ruiz !
and other republican members pointed
out that this course would be Impolite,
It being particularly unwise at this
juncture to give the protest of the le
gislature any flavor cf partiaci.r.&lwi..
Accordingly this paragraph wds added
to the memorial, and it was transmit
ted to the house:
"Resolved, fvirther. That the text 'of
this resolution, over the signatures tot
the president of the council and house
be forthwith telegraphed to the presi
dent of the senate, to our delegate in
congress. Senators Bate, Bailey, Bard,
Foraker and Hon Marcus A. Smith.
In the routine information which ha'
been received from the house the
council had been Informed of the action
of the other body in providing for the
usual joint committees to visit and
investigate the various territorial in
stitutions. President Hunt announced
that he wished to be guided by the pre
ferences of the members in making as
signments to these junketing commit
tees. Without further action of importance
the council adjourned until 10 o'clock
this morning. It is expected that for
several days to come there will be but
one session of the council each day
from 10 o'clock until noon.
The house concerned itself with pro
viding for the junketing committees
and the payment of their expenses, and
the apportionment of 'seats at the pie
A joint resolution by Mr. Cobb was
adopted, providing for the appointment
of five committees to investigate ter
ritorial Institutions. Each committee
is to be composed of three members
of the house and two members of the
council, and all are to report, by Feb.
1. Mr. Cobb also introduced a bill ap- 1
propriating $750 to pay the expenses of
Most of the srtort session was taken 1
up in a discussion of the places to be
filled. Already the Ice wagon had been
run over Representative Pickrell's pro
position to appoint only such clerks
and attaches as were actually needed.
Mr. Pickrell's resolution provided for
fourteen places, only a resolution I
strictly In harmony with the Maricopa
county republican platform, which de
nounced extravagance and the multi
plication of unnecessary jobs. In Mr.
Pickrell's judgment the only house po
sitions which needed to be filled were
these: One chief clerk, and one assist
ant; one enrolling and engrossing
clerk, and one assistant; one Journal
clerk, and one assistant; one sergeant-at-arms,
and one assistant; one page,
one speaker's clerk, three committee
clerks, and one chaplain. Mr. Pick
rell had also added the startling pro
vision that all of the employes pro
posed should be compefent. When, on
the first day, a count of noses had
ehawn that the five lonesome republi
cans present were all that could be
counted for the Pickrell proposition, it
became apparent that the house of the
twenty-third legislature would follow
the good old custom. Arizona is rich
who ceres for expenses?
, Mr. Bailey opened the gates to the
rich pasture yesterday, when he of fer-n
cd a resolution providing for these po- 1
sitions: One chief clerk, and one as- '
slstant; one enrolling and engrossing
clerk, and two assistants; one journal
clerk and one assistant; one speaker's
clerk, twelve committee clerks, one
page, one doorkeeper, one assistant
page; one sergeant-at-arms, and one
assistant and one janitor. The resolu- j
tion was quickly adopted, and then tho
business of creating additional , places
was started by making a place for a
The republicans, led by Leroy An
derson, protested against the scheme,
but it went through. Several demo
crats voted against It, however.
The council's substitute for the
house's statehood memorial was re
ceived, and did not meet with a rap
turous welcome. It was decided to
have a conference committee of the
two houses for the purpose of fram
ing a memorial -which will be accept
able to both council and house.
The house adjourned to 10 o'clock
this morn in.

Washington,-Jan. 17. The unusual
spectacle of a United States senator
explaining on the floor of the senate
chamber charges made against himself
in a couri pf law in his own state was
witnessed in ' the ' senate today when
Mr. Mitchell of Oregon spoke of the
indictment recently returned against
him by ah Oregon grand Jury. The
senator had not previously' appeared In
the senate since the Indictment was
returned and he was received by his
fellow senators with many evidences
of good will. He was much affecttd.

he read his statement with great dif

from citizens and associations of the

Illinois attained in the first forty years

THE SWAYNE CASE.
A Vote Will Be Taken on Impeachment
Washington, Jan. 17 With an agree

impeachment tomorrow, the debate
was carried on. at high pressure for
more than five hour. Mr. Grosvenor
furnished the text for a very vigorou
speech by Bourke Cochran by the
reading of a letter from Judge Par
dee of New Orleans, declaring that
politics was at the bottom of the im
peachment proceedings. The fact of a
Judge transmitting such a letter, Mr.
Cochran declared dramatically, was a
monstrous spectacle." -
Mr. Grosvenor asserted that there
was no ground presented for Impeach
ment in the report of the committee.
The other defenders of Mr. Swayne
were Messrs. Lacy, Nevin, Moon (of
Pennsylvania and Crumpacker of In
diana. Mr. Lamar of Florida closed
the debate for the day. reviewing the
