"Tho Rubicon is crossed. No retreat Is pos? sible" |s the unanimous sentiment, At last night's Joint meeting of editors and literary mon nnd Iho Zomstvolsts, tho greatest enthusiasm prevailed and the fullest support was pledged to the programme adopted.

The young Empress, when asked for her view Is said to 'nava replied briefly: "I do not wish to see my son'blown up." Such stories, however, partake of the nature of common gossip In St. Peters? burg nnd although repeated In well-in? formed circles may hnvo little foundation.

Ho was sur? rounded by _Ms best loved ones at the peaceful end. Dr. William Brooks Gray, who for half a contury has 'been engaged In tho prac? tice of medicino and sjurgery, was born In Fluvunna county, Va., February 20, ,31-83, a son of Dr. William Alfred and Mary Ann Brooks "Gray. He pursued his literary education In various high schools, and tho University of Virginia, and prepared' for the pro? fession which he has mado lite llfo -work, as a studont In tho Jefferson Medical Colloge, Philadelphia, Pa., in which ho graduated on the 6lh of March, 1852. Hospital practice was nlsp an Important factor In preparing him. fot* tho responsi? ble duties of private practice. Started With His Father. Dr. Gray commenced tho practice of his [profession with h la father, Dr, William A. Gray, an association that continued for years, and that was beautiful In Its congeniality and closeness, His country practlcu covered a period of about twenty years, after which he removed to this city, where ho has practiced with signal success for tho pnst thirty years or moro. It is not an unusual thing In his native county, even now, -among* tho older Inhabitants to hear words of en? thusiastic admiration of his professional skill and devotion, and the steady stream of callers at his homo during tho past few days has horno loving testimony DR. WILLIAM B. GRAY. to the efficiency and fidelity which had brought back into life and-health again so many .to whom ho had ministered In his long career. It may bo confidently asserted that no ! one ever came within the rango of his ? Intimate ncr-uaintanco without feeling the ' charm of his magnetic personality. A Pious Man.' In his religious faith he was a Baptist and his church connection was for many years with the Second Baptist Church, of this city.. Ho contributed liberally to? wards Its enterprises and more than ono brilliant young minister of this country can testify of his benefactions towards their preparation for their high calling. His piety was of an unobtrusive, unos? tentatious type, but It was steadfast; It never failed him, and ever nnd anon It shed a soft and mellow light along the rugged paths, which In tho divine ap? pointments ho was often called to tread. Well did he say In his last days, "I know whom I havo believed and am persuaded that ho Is able to keep that which I havo committed unto him against that day." His Family. Dr. Gray has lield no civil or political offlco, but was o? the'staff of Dr. J. B.

THE ARSENAL ?N DANGER (By Associated Press.) Ml.'KOI*".***, Nov. 23.?Indications "are growing that tho Japaneso aro under? taking a wide turning movement on tho Russian left. A large number of commis? sariat wagons have been observed going eastward and home artillery exchanges havo also beert reported from the east? ward.

The Japanese also aro heilig strongly reinforced.
