THE MAGHINb CONTEST.
Clip The Coupon?The One Getting The Most Gets The Sewing Machine. Ab time passes interest in the Sew ing Machine Contest being conducted by the Evening News, grows keener. It is freely admitted that saoh an offer is seldom placed before the women of this city and they are taking advantage of it. The rale announced in the Evening News a day or two ago that all orders for special copies of the paper must be left at the publication offioe a day ahead, must be strictly adhered to. The demand for papers every after noon is snch that but few extra copies are left and more than one person has been turned awav. Several persons have asked that fifty or one hundred papers be sold to them at wholesale prioe. This is absolutely impossible. It would be unfair to the newsdealer. The Evening News sells at one cent a copy and offers to give the $60 Wheel er & Wilson sewing machine, having all the modern improvements, abso lutely free to the person sending or bringing in the most coupons clipped from this paper. This is without a doubt one of the most simple oontests ever conducted in this oity. There are few rules or regulations, to confuse a person. Papers are growing in demand as the oontest nears the end. If you want to add fifty or one hundred coupons to your collection, now is your time to do it. In nine cases out of ten it is always the last spurt put on at the home stretch which wins the race. Fifty cents spent in that many extra papers may win for you the machine which will cost you $60 retail. Soap 0R The Perth Amboy Evening News Sewing Machine Contest.

It is a little ont of season and there for not many of the bivalves are be ing taken np, bnt what are taken to market are bringing sixty cents a bushel with good prospects of the price soon going np to seventy-five cents a bushel. Sixty oents a bushel is the highest price paid for oysters in Tottenville in several years. An ovsterman in conversation with an Evening News reporter yesterday afternoon said : "I have been living in Tottenville nearly all my life and have been in the oyster business forty years. As every one knows, -for the last two seasons oysters from the Raritan bay could not be sold in the New York markets. Boat load after boat load being returned to the shippers in Tottenville. ~"I tell you this season oysters will sell not only in tne New York markets, but in every place to whioh they are shipped. During the last two seasons the oysters were very lean and poor ones. Take this vear's oysters, how ever, and they are large and fat. " Several oysters were opened so that the reporter could see them "Many of the dealers in New York objected last year to the greenish appearance of the Raritan river oysters, " the speaker continued, "but they have found out that oysters from other beds have the same color so the objection on the'part of the New York dealer has passed off. ' ' Many other oystermen told the re porter that this would be the biggest year for the shipping of oysters that Tottenville has seen in many a year. MR. BREHAUT'S FUNERAL.

CHINESE ARE READY TO FIGHT. Russia Trys to Influence American Opinion by Appeals to Tradi tional Friendship and Hold ing; Out Hopes of Trude. PEKING, May 9.? The Russians, it is announced, have reoccupied New chwang with a large force and have also put garrisons in the forts at the mouth of the Liao river/ It is reported that Russia was accu mulating great stores of provisions and war materials. It is also known that the Russian miiitnry authorities have been buying many horses. All informa tion indicates that Russia is preparing to increase her forces in Manchuria. The Russians have taken a large tract of land across the river from Newchwang and commanding the ter minus of the Shanhaikwan railroad. It was stated that Russia informed the Chinese officials that the tract was needed for a Russian drill ground. The selection of the site seemed remarka ble, because all the troops were then quartered on the opposite side of the river several miles distant, where plen ty of land was available. The Chinese officials describe the dowager empress as being greatly dis tressed and as fearing that the Rus sian aggression will excite antiforeign demonstrations resulting in retaliation on the part of the foreigners and the introduction of more foreign troops. Nowhere has a suggestion been heard that China will resort to arms in order to resist Russia. Prince Ching, the grand secretary, secured five days' leave of absence. This is a favorite stratagem of Chinese officials who are desirous of avoiding unpleasant situations. It is stated here that Russian influ ence is being exerted to conciliate American opinion and that appeals are being made to tlie traditional friend ship of the two nations, with the argu ment that Russian development of Manchuria will open a great field for American commerce, while the opposi tion of the Unitecf States to Russia's plans might provoke retaliation against American trade. The Russians have established a con sulate at Mukden. , Russia's coup has caused profound surprise here, as recent developments have led to the expectation that Russia would compromise her demands since they had been revealed to the powers. The latest maneuver is interpreted as being intended as a reply to China's re fusal to grant Russia's demands, to the protests of the powers, and as a decla ration that she is ready to fight in or der to maintain possession of Manchu ria. It is considered significant that the Russian army reoccupied certain strat egical posts at Just about the time na val re-enforcements were reaching the gulf of Pechili. Move Resented at Washington. WASHINGTON, May 9.-The state department has received official confir mation from its agents in China of the increase of the Russian garrison in Newchwang, Manchuria, and there is reason to believe if President Roose velt approves that it is preparing to take vigorous steps in the matter. Sec retary Hay is in communication with President Roosevelt in California, and upon the latter's decision the secre tary's course will depend. Anglo-Amrrlcnn Action. LONDON, May 9.? The great London dailies warmly welcome the prospect of the United States initiating joint tui tion with Great Britain and Japan against the designs of Russia in Man churia. They believe that such con certed action would induce Russia to beat a prudent retreat. ( P O R D S NEWS ITEMS.
