Kuropatkin With Superior Force Is
Advancing and Forcing Battle on
Japanese South of Mukden.
General Engagement On.
Tvjklo, Oct. 11. Tok.o tonight Is
ongorlyawalting tidings ot tho persist
ently rumored engagement south of
Mulodon. It Is reported that the Una
Blnns are assuming the offensive, nnd
hnve crossed the Hun river and at
tacked Kurokl'K forces, capturing n
position, which tho Japaucso after be
ing strongly reinforced, recaptured
and re occupied. Tho Japanese, It Is
reported, have checked the Russian
advance. It Is said that the losses on
both sides wore heavy.
Toklo, Oct. 11. It is reported that
the Russians have crossed the Hun
river In heavy force and are aggres
sively attacking tho Japanese who
are moving northward.
A general engagement Is said to be
St. Petersburg, Oct. 11. Kuropat
kin telegraphs tho Russian vanguard
now In contnet with tho Japanese,
who are within gunshot and tho scouts
nro skirmishing along the entire line.
Toklo. Oct. 11. The Japaucso gun
bont Heyen struck a mine In Pigeon
Bay west of Port Arthur September
19 and sank. Only four of her crew
Tho naval registers do not mention
the Japanese gunboat named Heyen,
but thoy contain tho name of a Japan
eso coast defense vessel, Hel Ynn,
which may be the warship destroyed
The Hel Yen Is of 2.0C7 tons displace

St. Petersburg. Oct. 11. According
to tho estimates of the war office,
Oyama's strength Is about 200,000 men
of which 150,000 are posted between
tho Hun river, to tho west, and Rent
slaputzo eastward, tho rcmnln ler be
ing held In reserve at Uao Yang. Ku
ropatkin has, perhaps, n slight superi
ority In numbers.
St. Petersburg, Oct. 11. A period
of anxiety Is ahead. The Russian pub
lic has been warned that now tho ta
bles are turned and the Russian army
Is advancing, they cannot expect news
which might reveal Kuropatkln's
plans nnd the people have to bo con
tent with meagre Information until the
Impending battle is In full swing.
St. Petersburg, Oct. 11. No official
news has been received fiom the front
as to what Is happening today. Rut
u portion of Kuropatkln's dispatch,
dated last night, given to tho public,
showed that his army was steadily
pushing forward and that tho Japanoso
wero gradually withdrawing tholr out
posts which were only a cannon's shot
distant. There have been nlmost con
stant artlllory sklrmlshos which nt
any moment may develop Into a battle.

Raiding the Gambler..
As a result of the disturbance dur
ing the last two or three days Federal
officials became very active yesterday,
raiding several alleged gambling
houses, and burning gambling fixtures
In the streets. Tho raid occurred late
yesterday afternoon, and was lenst ex
ported by the gamblers. Tho olllcials
a iopted a unique scheme in placing a
!arjr number of persons under arrest
Many iwore told Unit they were wanton
at the court house, and the followers
nf I he green cloth thliiKlng that they
were wanted us witnesses proceeded
to toe Federal building and were tak
en In charge by officers. Nearly thti
ty arrests were made, several spending
the night In Jail. i
- United Stales Commissioner Robnctt
gave the sports a hearing late last
night, and lined them $10 and costs.
Nearly all of them paid their linos,
while several were released on bonds
United States District Attorney
Johnson states that gambling must
cease In this district. He says he will
have tho gamblers Indicted when the
grand Jury meets, and will have Judge
Dickerson to Imposo a Jail sentence.
Ho isald'lt was tho only remedy to
break up gambling, and strongly Inti
mated that ho will vigorously prose-
tito nil persons hcrenfter who Insist
on running business of this kind or
who insist on gambling.

ANOTHER FLOOD COMING DOWN
C.iuslnrj Much Anxiety It Is Greater
in Volume Than the One Now Re
ceding Official Notified to
Move All M-itsrlal. .
An Oklahoma special says: Rail
way olllcials in Oklahoma City and
rallnmd men nil slong tho valley ot
the South Canndlnn river are bolns
ndvlsed by wire today or nuothor big
rise coming down the river Trout Colo
rado, duo tw snow and heavy rains.
The olllcials nave been notified to get
nil loose material out or the way as
It Is believed the Hood will be greater
than the one now receding. r fj.
Tho railroads hero liavo just com
menced to recover frum their crippled
condition, l-ist night tho first through
train ovor the bridgo at Purcell was al
lowed to pass on Its way to Oklahoma
City, and points north of hero. Since
the bridge nt Purcell has been In such
bad shape passenger traffic for Texas,
Now Mexico and California points lias
been tnkon caro of over the Shawnco
line, over tho bridgo near Asher, to
Texarkann. In Texas tho passengers
wero transferred to tho Guir, Colorado
and Sanla Fe and the Southorn Pacific
lines. Now that n second big rise Is
headed this way and from tho Tact that
tho bridge at Purcell Is In a safe con
dition all passenger traffic to Califor
nia, New Mexico nnd Arizona will bo
handled through Oklahoma City.
Canadian City,. Tex., Ojcl. i;. There
Is much uneasiness here over the sec
ond flood which Is now coming dswn
tho South Canadian river from Colo
rado. Tho river at this place, which
caused great 'destruction to railroad
property, has again commenced to nso
nt a very rapid rate and fears nro cn
tortalned that repairs on the railway
hero will hnve been accomplished for
naught. Tho workmen In tho employ
of tho Santa Fo, who hnvo been re
pairing tho roadbed and bridges In
this vicinity, have been Instructed to
removo nil loose material beyond
reach of the second Hood nnd to innko '
nrrangements for tho protection of the
repair work wjilch would have been
finished this week. Reports from Col
orado indicate that tho second flood
will greatly surpass tho recent high
water scon hero.
Purcoll, I. T., Oct. 11. Tho roport
of nuothor rlso in tho South Canadian
liver Is causing anxloty hero. Last
night tho two Santa Fo pllo drivers
finished thu work of putting In somo
100 foot of troBtlo work nnd repairs on
tho bridgo and permitted tho first
train to cross In five days. It Is be
lloved hero, howover, that n second
flood can do but Ilttlo damago to the
railway proporty because of a now
channel cut by the river which glvcs-
tho water moro space. Thero Is much
apprehension ovor tho trestle work on
account of tho fact that tho new chan
nel runs' under tho approach to tbo
bridgo which has just been repaired.
