Battle of Hun River. The five days' combat ending Jan. 28 wh.ch will be known as the battle of the Hun river was fought on a plajn broken only by southern amethyst mountnlns around Yentai, the solitary eminence of which Is the Llao Yang Tower of bloody memory. For five days Russian soldiers un nvailtngly hurled themselves against the defences and field artillery pound ed them until the frosty air reverber-; nted with the thunder of cannon, the' din of bursting shells and the rattlo of musketry. The gunners nctually wept with de spair at their impotence. Mortar bat teries enmn up at a gallop In the hope, of demolishing the fortifications. Night and day the stream of shells was poured against t10 earthworks but without effect. The men seemed In different to hunger or cold which lat ter was of Arctic Intensity. Their fingers, hands and feet were benumbed, while stinging snow and dust blinded them. Tho slightest wound caused excru ciating pain. Warm blood no sooner exuded from lacerated flesh than It be gan to freeze. Wounded could not be left exposed and If they did not re ceive attention within an hour they died. The surgeons, their assistants and nurses were almost powerless In ".ho bandaging of wounds, for they were obliged to wenr leather gloves tr mittens In order to resist the cold. Tho men seemed to be living again he horrors of the winter campaign of 1812 against tho Turks. , Every thing that could bo donwna done, but man was powerless 'fir'thf face of nature, which heaped, tortnrejr itpoji the troops and defeated the well tbonpht out. plan of the commander. The battle yielded no palpable re suit.. . Russian Operations Suspended. According to Gen. Kuropatklri's a-. test reports, which indicate the wound ing of a third Russian general, Dem Lowskl, the operations at Sandlapu and the fighting at Sliakhe have boon momentarily suspended.

WORK OF TERRORISTS. Assassination of Finnish Law Officer of High Rank. The Assassin and Official's Son Wert Both Wounded In a Pistol Due Following the Killing Regarded In St. Petersburg as Precusor ef ar Era of Terrorism. Hclsingfors, Finland, Feb. 7. Sena tor Johnssou, procurator of the Fin nish senate and procurato general of Finland, was assassinated In his res idence at 11 o'clock yesterday morn Ing. The murderer, who was disguised at an officer of the' army, sent in a card bearing the name Alexander Gadd, and at once ws admitted. After en tering the room he faced the procura tor general, drew a revolver and fired four shots' in quick succession. Each shot took effect and Johnsson fell, dying almost immediately. Johns son's son, hearing the firing, came to his father's assistance, and the mur derer fired at him, wounding him slightly. The assassin at once was arrested. Johnsson was born in 185G and prac ticed at the Finnish bar. He was high ly esteemed and had held various government appointments, Including that of provincial judge. He was ap pointed procurator of the senate in 1901 and in the same year was made procurator general of the Duchy of Finland. Johnsson was regarded as a wise and patriotic official. It is un dcrstcod that It was at his Initiative hat the Finns exiled . by Governor General Bobrakoff were allowed to re turn to Finland. When he became ennobled Senator Johnsson took the name of ScJsiUon sommcn. The assassin and Soinincn's son were both wounded in a revolver duel following the killing. The motive of the crime apparently was purely po- lltical, the slain ofllclal being a promi nent member of the government party. The murderer appeared a't the pro curator's residence at 11 o'clock and sent in a card bearing in French the name of Alexandre Gadd, who Is ln the Russian service. The young man( who was smartly dressed In an offi cer's uniform, was promptly admitted, to the official's private study, and on his entrance fired four shots from a revolver, one of tho bullets piercing the brenst of the procurator, who ex- p&red almost Immediately. His 17-year-old son hearing the shots, rushed in from an adjoining room nnd fired three or four shots at his father's assailant, whose right leg Lwas broken below the knee by a bul let. He also was slightly wounded in the shoulder nnd a finger of his left hand was struck. The assassin fired the one bullet re maining in his revolver at Soinincn's son, wounding him slightly in the calf of his right leg. He then endeavored to escape, but fell unconscious to the floor in the ante-room. There he was seized. Dr. Wasastjcrna was called Immedi ately but found tho procurator beyond need of his services. The assassin was removed to the surgical hospital where he lies guarded by police, an swering no questions and evidently unconscious. His recovery, however, is thought to be certain. Up to the present the authorities have been un able to identify him. He is of dark complexion nnd apparently between 25 and CO years of ago. OF A POLITICAL CHARACTER. Procurator-General Was Looked Upon as an Exponent of Russiflcation of Finland. St. Petersburg, Feb. 7. The news of the assassination of Soisalon Soinl nen, procurator general of Finland, though occurring before noon on Mon day, was not known generally in St. Petersburg last night, but may be ex pected to produce an Immense sensa tion when It becomes public, as It will be regarded as tho precursor of an era of terrorism for which the events of January in St. Petersburg and throughout Russia gave the signal. Until the identity of the assassin Is known It will bo impossible to estab lish positively the motive for the at tempt, but the present circumstances In Finland render it almost certain that the crime Is of a purely political character and of tho same nature as the. assassination of Count Bobrlkoff, tho governor ' geiuiral of Finland, In Juno of last year..'. The Russiflcation of Finland has been meeting with great opposition and creating much bitterness, es pecially since, tho formation of the party of active resistance, recruited from the bolder spirits of thu original party of passive resistance and to which the perpetrator of this latest crime probably belongs. At the conference of revolutionary parties of Russia, comprising repre senbitives of tho Finnish Active Re sistance parly, tho Polish National League, the Ri'sslan emancipationists nnd other revolutionary organiza tions, in Berlin last November a pro gram for general concerted action was drawn up, and the assassin of Soinlnen undoubtedly was In touch with the dissatisfied element throughout Rum- Coadjutor Bishcp of Rochester.

Government Troops Dispersed the Rebels at Mendoza. Buenos Ayres, Feb. 7. Government troops attacked tho rebels, who had fortified themselves at Mendoza, at dawn yesterday. Soon afterwards the rebel leaders and officers fled to tho mountains, whereupon the men surrendered unconditionally. The rebels, had sacked the local branch of the national bank of Buenos Ayrej end seized $300,000. Numerous ar rests have been made and the city Is now quiet. Late information shows that the in surrectionary movement is now re stricted to Cordoba. Generals Wlnt- ter, Benavldes, Garcia and Roca, with largely superior forces, are sur rounding tho city. The rebels are holding Senator Yofre. The Buenos Ayres police have seized a quantity of guns and revol vers and also many copies of mani festos and revolutionary documents. Night trains on the line between Buenos Ayres and Rosario will be re sumed again tomorrow. All the bankers here condemn the at tempted revolution and express the hetye that the energetic policy of President Quintana will have the ef fect of preventing any such attempt in the future. The only group of rebels In the province of Buenos Ayres, 170 men strong, has been defeated near Plro vano station. Two officers and seven men were killed and 121 surrendered. The rest with Commandant Villamayor are retreating and government troops are In pursuit. Tho Insurrection is admitted to have been a failure and the govern ment now has matters well in hand. Yesterday the military rebels at Cor doba endeavored to make terms with the government by offering to sur render If they were absolved and per mitted to cetnin their ranks, threat ening that if these conditions were re fused they would hold as hostages Dr. Alcorta, the vice president of the republic, and other notable persons surprised and captured In that city an Saturday. Prssident Quintana declined to lis ten to any compromise, adding that rebeda had no rights as combatants and would be amenable to military law. The prompt suppression of the out brciflv makes It evident that there fs an nbsence of nil the usual elo r.ients of a revolution. Popular sym pathy Is entirely with the government, which exhibited unexpected strength. The rising was purely military and happily was limited la its propor tions. . Condition of Justice Hooker. Albany, Feb. 7. That the serious In lury of Supreme Court Justice War ren B. Hooker In the railroad acci dent near Utlca last Saturday morn ing may lead to the Indefinite post ponement of the assembly Judiciary committee's Investigation of the charges against the Justice was ad mitted last night by Assemblyman Fish of Madison, who Is chairman of the committee: "I have heard today from Justice Hooker's secretary," said Mr. Fish, "that Justlce.Hooker is seri ously Injured and that no ono Is al lowed as yet to see him."

"One of the fads of (lie dyed "in the wool pipe smoker is to have a dazzling polish on his pipe, mill It's curious how he puts the gloss on," said a tobacco dealer. "Watch a veteran pipe smoker close ly nnd you se-e him occasionally rub the bowl of his pipe against Ills face, usually on cneh side of bis nose. That's how be puts the polish 011. The bent of the brier and the oil of the skin against which it Is rubbed work up a rich gloss. A smoker's favorite pipe, you will find, 1ms the sheen of rose wood.

BETRAYED "MAFIA" SECRETS. Love For a Girl Causes a Man to Tell What He Knows of the Black Hand. Wllkesbarre, Pa., Feb. 6. Through the lovo of a girl the authorities of Lackawanna county have obtained tho secrets of the "Mafia" society which reigned In Carbondale and which they are now endeavoring to crush. . One of the loaders of tho society, Joseph Colandre, who Is a prisoner in tho Lackawanna jail, has made a detailed confession In the hope of being re leased or getting only a short term. Tho confession was obtained by his sweetheart, Rosa Romaine, whom he was to have married In June, and who for, several days has been plead ing with him to tell the authorities all he knows. Not until Santo Carisaro had been found guilty and sentenced to five years and nlno months In jail, and Frank Muncula had pleaded guilty and had been sentenced to four years and nine months did Colandre weak en and tell the secrets of tho society. Colandro said the organization was known to the members merely as "the society" and not as the Mafia. He told District Attorney Lewis that he had been forced to join tho gang under threat o' 'U-nth, and that he was com pelled, In order to protect himself, to go with them when they cornered a man and niado him disgorge after threatening him with Injury or tell ing him his throat would bo cut. Ho named John Costa of New York city as the head of the society, who Issued all tho orders and to whom tho money collected was turned over. Frank Moucula, who pleaded guilty, ho says, was the leader of tho Carbon dalo society and tho personal repre sentative of Costa. Ho named other members of tho society. Colandro gave the district attorney a list of the victims, the money they paid, tho threats made against them, and every little detail of tho ramifications of tho society which he knew. These facts will now aid greatly in tho prosecution of the several prisoners awaiting trial. . This confession may effect Colan dre's release after a short term, but makes him subject to tho vengeance of the Mafia, and threats have already been niado. Frank Muncula said flvo years in prison was not long enough to make him forget, and that when he came out he would "fix" the man who has betrayed the society. MRS. CHADWICK'S CREDITOR8.
