RICHMOND DAILY PALLADIUM, MOllPAY, JANUARY 25, 1904.
TT70. BOTH LAND TROOPS Russia and Japan Arc Ilc- ported to be Getting Armies Into Korea. THIS MEANS A CONFLICT With Opposed Forces in Close Prox imity a Clcsli Can Hardly oe ! Avoided. These Alarmist Reports Are Not Con firmed in St. Petersburg and May Not be True. Seoul, Jan. 25. Korean soldiers and police at Pyengyang, disguised as rob bers, have looted all the wealthy na tive houses. Foreigners are growing very uneasy over the condition of af fairs. The natives seemingly are ap athetic. The weather i3 extremely cold. St. Petersburg, Jan. 25. Reports o! an alarming nature of the situation there continue to pour out of the far East. These include the statements that the Japanese are landing an army at Ztfa-Sam-Pho, Korea, and that 3,000 Russian troops are crossing the Yalu river. The reported dispatch of a Chi nese army of soldiers trained by Euro pean officers Leyond the great wall to preserve order in Manchuria cannot be confirmed here and the reports of the Japanese at Ma-Sam-Pho and tho Russians at the Yalu are discredited at the foreign office here and by M. Kurino, the Japanese minister to Rus sia. M. Hartwig, a departmental chief of the Russian foreign office, spoke feelingly to M. Kurino regarding the harm being done by exaggerated and often utterly baseless reports. While the Russian government un derstands the situation in Korea to be disturbed and possibly threatening, it has no information of a situation grave enough to warrant a landing of a large Japanese force there. Russia freely admits Japan's rights under existing conventions to land in Korea a reason able number of soldiers to preserve or der; but the landing of an army at this stage of the negotiations could not be viewed with equanimity. M. Kurino is in no way anxious by the delay in Russia's response to the latest Jap anese note, and says that Japan is not pressing for an immediate reply. "Russia will be given all the time she need3," the minister is quoted as say ing. The statement published by the Novoe Vremya that because Russia desired peace she cannot surrender all, coincides with the distinct impres sion gathered at the foreign office that Russia will continue to maintain that the question of the sovereignty of Man churia is solely a matter between Rus sia and, Japan. The Svjet and the St. Petersburg L,istoe have raised an out cry over the reported sending of Chi nese troops to Manchuria, and the lat ter newspaper declares that if it is true that these troops go with the pur pose of threatening the railroad be tween Port Arthur and Vladivostock, it means war with China and not with Japan. In an interview Soo Wei Ten, the Chinese minister to Russia, is quoted as saying: "The talk of China going to war with any one is absurd. "We have no intention of fighting. If Chi nese troops are being sent North it is solely for the purpose of inspiring con fidence in our own popple who are alarmed and who would become panic stricken in the event of hostilities be tween Russia and Japan." MINISTER ALLEN REPORTS American Guard in Korea Four.d Its Services Needed. Washington, Jan. 25. The state de partment has received official informa tion of an attack by a mob of. native Koreans on an electric "car in Korea, the line being owned by Americans, because of the fact that it had killed a Korean. The news came in the fol lowing cablegram received Sunday from Minister Allen at Seoul: "This morning on the electric railway which Hun Are impure matters which the skin, liver, kidneys and other organs can not take care of without help, there is uch an accumulation of them. They litter the whole system. Pimples, boils, eczema and other eruptions, loss of appetite, that tired feeling, bilious turns, fits of indiges tion, dull headaches and many other troubles are due to them. 1 Hood's "Sarsaparilla and Pills Remove all humors, overcome all iheir effects, strengthen, tone and Invigorate tho whole system. I had salt rheum on my hands so that I could not work. I took Hood's Sarsaparilla and it drove oat th3 humor. I continued Its use till the sores disappeared." Mbs. Irk O. Faowjr, Ilumford Falls, Me. Hood's Sarsaparilla promises to cure and keeps the promise is TZT3 pro'perty or American citizens, a Korean was accidentally and un avoidably killed. Thereupon a mob of natives attacked and partially destroy ed the car. The operators of the car would have been injured Jiad it not been for the presence of mind and action of our guard, and seriou3 riots would have occured." SERIOUS SITUATION Several Pennsylvania Towns Submerg ed by the Susquehanna. Wilkesbarre, Pa., Jan. 25. An ica gorge has formed in the Susquehanna river and for a distance of thirty miles the river is entirely blocked. Nearly the whole town of Rupert is submerg ed, and on Water street the water comes up to the second story. The Pennsylvania railroad depot 13 sur rounded by water and several houses have been moved from their founda tions and the great majority of the farms are under water. At Boomsburg the ice is jammed up forty feet high and the large bridge over the Susquehanna at that place hrs been moved five feet and expected to collapse at any moment. One-third of the town of Bloomsburg is sub merged by the waters of the Susque hanna and Fishing creek. Tho village of Espoy, two miles north of Blooms burg, is partially sut merged. Many families have been driven from their homes by the rush of waters and many bad narrow escapes. Farmers in many instances had all their horses, cows and other live stock drowned. Wheeling Under Water. Wheeling, W. Va., Jan. 25. The crest of the flood swell was reached last evening. Fully one-third of the homes in the city are wholly or par tially inundated and the sharp fall -in temperature has caused a great deal of suffering. On the island very few streets are out of the water, and many second stories are invaded, but the residents are accustomed to floods and have made arrangements accordingly. Valley Corn Is in Danger. Evansville, Ind., Jan. 25. The Ohio river continues to rise here and today stands twenty feet. Over ten more feet of water is expected on the pres ent rise. The Wabash is rising and there is nearly a half million bushels of corn along the river that may be lost. AFTER TWO MONTHS Navigation on the Ohio Has Deen Opened. Cincinnati, Jan. 25. With the ar rival here of the steamer Courier, nav igation was opened in part of the Ohio river after a complete suspension of almost two months. During that time seven large packets and a doen small er ones and hundreds of coal bargeg have been anchored here. The small packets were wrecked by the breaking of ice gorges and the number of barges lost will never be known. The total direct loss is placed at $200,000. The indirect loss is much greater. It is stated that the loss of one of tho large packets by being laid up is $1,000 per day. The river is open for navigation now only between Louisville and Mays ville, Ky., so that none of the through packets up the river for Pittsburg or down the river for Mississippi points are yet able to run on account of the ice. While freezing weather again pre vails through the Ohio valley the river is now too high to be again closed up. WITHIN TWO HOURS A City of 11,000 Inhabitants Was De strayed by Fire. 1 Aalesund, Norway, Jan. 25. Fire which swept over this town destroyed every building in it with the exception of the hospital. The 11,000 inhabi tants of Aalesund were compelled" to camp in the open as only a few dam aged and uninhabitable houses were left standing. The people endeavored to savo some . of thoir property, but they soon found they had quite enough to do to save their live3. The destruc tion of the town was complete within two hours from the time the fire start ed. It is believed now that only three persons have lost their lives. A major ity of tho inhabitants of the town lost everything they possessed and only in a very few cases were the damages covered by insurance. Thousands of persons had to spend twenty-four hours in the open fields, where they were without food and exposed to a bitterly cold wind and a driving rain storm. Russian Activity In Alaska. Victoria, B. C, Jan. 25. A letter from Valdez tells of Russian priests dominating a large portion of the pop ulation of western Alaska, forbidding the teaching of the English language to those under their control and gen erally endeavoring to Russianize the natives of that part of Alaska. Distinguished Persian Arrives San Francisco, Jan. 25. Mirza All Asgar Khan, prima minister of Persia, who arrived here Saturday from the Orient, enroute to Mecca, left Sunday on th.9 Overland limited for Chicago.

THREE INDICTED Result of Investigation of 'Elkhart Bank Failure by Federal GrandJury. FIERCE LEGAL BATTLE That Brown, Broderick and Collins Will Plead Not Guilty is a Foregone Conclusion. Alleged Bank Wreckers Will bo Ar raigned in Federal Court Wednesday. Indianapolis, Jan. 25. The action of the federal grand jury in indicting Walter Brown, J. L. Brodrick and W. I. Collins for complicity in the failure of the Elkhart bank is still the topic of conversation here and the arraign ment of the prisoners before Judge Anderson here on Wednesday, when they will be obliged to enter their pleas, is being awaited with the great est interest. That the men will all plead not guilty is regarded as a fore gone conclusion. The trials will be set for some time in March probably. It is the understanding that Judge An derson wishes to get the cases out of the way before the May term of court opens, and as considerable time may be required to hear all the evidence, March will probably be selected for the trials. That the cases will be con tested at every point goes without say ing, and a long and fierce legal battle is awaited. It Caused a Sensation. Elkhart, Ind., Jan. 25. An itemized statement of the charges against Brodrick, Collins and Brown publish ed in a local paper caused a sensation that was second only to that resulting from the closing of the bank on Nov. 19. The public had been prepared for the indictments of all three, but it was not surmised that the counts would be so numerous or the sums involved so great. A SHOCKING CRIME Pike County Aroused Over Horrid Deed of Human Brutes. Petersburg, Ind., Jan. 25. At Glad ish Chapel, four miles west of Peters burg, Mrs. Lafe Dedman was assaulted by five young men. Lafe Dedman and his wife are half-witted people who spend part of the time in the county poorhouse and a part of it roaming over the country among their rela tives. They were passing through Madison township at night and stop ped to sleep in Gladish Chapel.
