The Russian General Staff reports that "The main body has al
ready completed its retreat, and the rear guards southward are
falling back slowly."
As to losses. Gen. Kuropatkin now admits 50,000 wounded were
carried off the field. This, with 2C.500 dead left on the field, the
40 000 prisoners and the wounded left In hospitals, comes some
where near the latest Japanese estimate that the total Russian
losses were 155,000. .
At this rate Kuropatkin can not have more than 100.000 cttcct
ive fighting men with him. The army of Gen. Llnevitch seems to
have made the best retreat, but this no doubt was due to the stub
born fight made by Gen. Rennenkampff on his extreme left and the
equally fierce resistance of Gen Kaulbars on the right, the latter
general losing 28,000 men. Neither the army or Kaulbars nor of
Rennenkampff has yet been accounted for by the dispatches.
ThP Japanese losses have been remarkably light In view of the
length and severity of the flghtlnR- '
The Associated Press correspondent with Kurokl's army tells
how the battle of Mukden was won. The Russian general was de

forces on the Japanese left, found, when too late, that his left was

Czar calls his war council he will be
able to inform the members that Ja

terms, and will promptly name her
conditions, provided she receives
trustworthy assurances that they will
be seriously considered.
The Emperor has learned from
friendly chancellors in Europe the
general terms acceptable to Japan.
These, it Is said. Include retention ny

over Korea, and an indemnity.
From a high official the Associated
Press hears that Russia has recalled
her second Pacific squadron. An at
tache of the Russian embassy In Eu
rope Is quoted as expressing the belief
that Kiyppatkln's recent defeat., will
force Russia to ask for peace. As a
result of this important Information
official Washington "belle'ves "jonight
that Russia and Japan are. on the
verge or peace. If it be true that the
second Pacific squadron has been re
called, even the most optimistic of
Russia's friends awmlt it Is a strong
indication that Oyama's mighty blow
has been made for peace.
New Chwang, .March 13. The ques
tion of transporting and caring for the

shipped from Yinkow as soon as the

Cervera Scored Success With Crowd
At Naco At Agua Prleta
Next Sunday.
BIsbee people to the number ot 22)
bought tickets Sunday for the bull
fight excursion trip to Naco. When
they returned they said that they had
witnessed the. only good exhibition
inu iuvuiuc uiaiauui. vcitcio. iito
bulls were splendid specimens, im
ported from Chihuahua.
The crowd from the city would have
been much larger but for circum
stances which prevented the extensive
advertising that was desired. Tfiose
circumstances arose out of the fact
that Crook tunnel was closed, and un
til late Saturday evening it could not
be positively advertised that the bulls
'or the fight could be gotten through
he tunnel. Consequently advertis
ug In the city was limited and held
lack to a late hour. Another trou
ble made by the closed tunnel was a
'uck of coaches In the city with which
to handle a crowd much in excess of
'hat had. But six cars were available
for the excursion train. These were
sent out and were well filled.
Next Sunday Cervera and the troupe
he had at Naco will appear at the
Agua Prieta ring at Douglas. An ex
cursion will be run by the railroad to
this event, and with the recommenda
tion that the exhibition at Naco gave
the troupe that will appear at Agua
Prieta it is expected that a large
crowd will turn out.

sion. It is said positively that Ad
miral Walker will not continue long
as a member of the commission. The
achievements of the body under the
direction of Admiral Walker have
not been 'satisfactory to the Presi
dent. As constituted now the com
mission is said to be unwieldly. It Is
regarded -as containing too many ele
ments which have to be adjusted, one
to another, before" anything definite
can be done. To remedy this de-

Is very likely, indeed, that eventual

three members, simply by not filling
the places of those whose resigna-
tions shall have been accepted. The
President is deeply Interested in tho
construction of the canal and pro-
poses to do everything possible to
facilitate the work.

the race shall increase and not de
crease. There are certain old truths which
will be true as long as this world en
dures, and which no amount of prog
ress can alter. One of these Is the
truth that the primary duty of the
husband Is to be the home maker,
the bread-winner for his wife and
children, and that primary duty of the
woman is to be the helpmeet, the
housewife and mother. The woman
should have ample educational ad
vantages; but save in exceptional
cases the man must be, and she need
not be, and generally ought not to be
trained for a lifelong career as the
family breadwinner; and, therefore,
after a certain point the training of
the two must normally be different.
This does not mean inequality of
function, hut It does mean that, nor
mally there must be dissimilarity of
function. On the whole. I think-the
duty ot the woman the more import
ant, the more difficult, and the more
honorable of the two; on the whole I
respect the woman who does her duty
even more strongly than I respect
the man who does his.
The birth pangs make all men the
debtors of all women. Above all our
sympathy and regard are due to the
struggling wives among those whom
Abraham Lincoln called the plain peo
ple, and whom he so loved and trust
ed; for the lives of these women are
often led on the lonely heights of
quiet, self-sacrificing heroism.
The woman who is a good wife, a
good mother, is entitled to our respect
as is no one else; but she is entitled
to it only because, and so long as, she
is worthy of it. Effort and self-sacrifice
arc the law of worthy life for
the man as for the woman; though
neither the effort nor thf elf-sacri-fice
may be the same for the one as
for the other. I do not in the least
believe In the patient Griselda type of
woman, in the woman who submits to
gross and long continued 111 treatment,
any more than I believe in a man who'
tamely submits to wrongful aggres-1
sion. No wrongdoing Is so abhorrent ,
as wrongdoing by a man towards the
wife and the children who should I

Commission Company, one of the
largest brokerage concerns of its kind
in the country, with a business over
the Northwest, and branch offices in
many cities, went to the wall today
after a remarkable fight .which has

hardy qualities -which in after life they

through weakness bring up your sons

much sadness. If you let your daugh

mistaken impression that as you your

preparing them to be useless to oth

boys and girls alike that they are not
