Tokto, Oct, 10.—It is reported here that the Japanese recently centered a fire from their land positions and from the fleet blockading Port Arthur on the lowest harbor with the object of de stroying the Russian fleet and suc ceeded in sinking three vessels. The names and character of which are un the Port-Arthur is.creating the "S Impression that the Russians ihtend to destroy their "ships Just before the fall of the fortress in preference tot^king the risk of a sortie, \j: wmMI Petersburg, Oct 10.—Kuropatkin ,1s in the field personally directing for wardmovements of his a^my, which, it is understood, Is divided- into two strong columns, moving on each side of the railroad whence they will draw their supplies, their flanks 'being as sured by no less than a hundred and Jlfty squadrons of Cossacks. The Rus sians are operating along a front of between forty and forty-five miles, ex tending from Kaoutou pass to Bentsi aputze on the east and across the Hun river to the left bank of the Liao river on the west. They are taking every precaution against possible counter at tacks by throwing up entrenchments as they advance. St. Petersburg, Oct. 10.—The capture Of Bentsiaputze, which was strongly fortified and where Kuroki command ed In person, is officially confirmed. •The fighting was not severe, the Jap nese retiring on finding themselves •utflanked. The Russian losses were twenty-five killed or wounded, includ Ing an officer. •, A high' officer of the general staff in formed the Associated Press today that Kuropatkin is prepared to ad vance with great care but when the main collision- will occur will depend on circumstances. Heavy fighting is hardy likely before a week, at the earliest. "Only six miles separate the advance lines," said the officer referr ed to, 'and an advance or counter ad vance might precipitate the prelim inary artillery engagement at any mo ments." It is now evident that Field Marshal Oyajna is aware that Kuropatkin is preparing to strike, and instead of ex tending himself for a big flanking movement east, so much talked of, he frag recognized the necessity of meet ing the Russian advance by fortifying his positions north of Liao Yang. The interval between the eventual collision will doubtless be utilized by both sides in feeling out their respective strength and dispositions and in active skirm ishing on the flanks, of which the dar ing march of Cossacks across Shakhe river almost to .the Rental mines, is an example. Not until the combined movements of Kuropatkin's army are in full swing southward will it be seen whether Oyama intends to contest the present advance or fall back on his fortified positions north of Liao Yang, where he would reverse the situation hitherto, as the Japanese would, for the first time, enjoy the advantage of fighting behind defenses. According to estimates of the war office, Oyama's total strength is about 260,000 men, of which 150,000 are posted between the Hun river to the west and Bentsiaputze eastward, the remainder being held in reserve at Liao Yang. Kuropatkin disposes of nine corps, giv ing him perhaps a slight superiority in numbers. lieutenant General Grippenberg, who is to command t'le second Mafichurian army, will take with him to the front a large portion of troops of the Vilna military district over which he has had command for throe years. Mobilization is already quietly proceeding. With Kuropatkin actirg on the offensive re inforcements will be pushed forwari with all possible speed. It is now apparent that the Russians propose to make a winter campaign as tlsey did during the Russo-Turkish Wlr. Oyama, however, has not yet show a disposition to iitrongly hold his outer positions. The evacuation of Bentsia putze left the flank of the Japanese po sition at the Yentai mines unprotected and the news of the abandonment of the mines, is therefore, hourly expected The Japanese appear to be concentrat ing their forces in the fortifications for merly occupied by the Russians on the right bank of the. Taitse river, which axe exceedingly strong, and they have equally as good defense north and south. The Japanese retired from Bentsiaputze almost without a strug gle, fearing Mistchenko's Cossacks would surround their position and cut them off. Bentsiaputze i» of the highest impor tance, commanding the roads from Mukden and Fushan to Liao Yang and Bensihu. .Such news of Russj&n movements as may be given out without compromis ing the advance is likely to be tele graphed by General Kuropatkin each evening, after the day's work in the field is over. ____ sy* RUSSIA IS CHEERED. News That Kuropatkin. Will Assume the Offensive Brings Joy. St. Petersburg, Oct. 10.—The formal announcement that Kuropatkin is at last strong enough to assume the of fensive together with unofficial re ports that offensive movements against the three armies), Field Marshal Oay ama have been progressing since Oct. 4, has sent a thrill of joy thruout Rus sia. The bulletin boards at street ear ners upon which were posted, copies of Kuropatkin's ord of the day were sur rounded by crowds really cheerful for the first time since the war began. All papers acclaim with intense satisfac tion at the same time warning the pub lic not to harbor allusions and saying they must be prepared for heavy sacri fices involved in attacking so powerful and determined a foe. KUROPATKIN'S SPEECH. ...\ Russian General Flamboyantly Ad dresses His Troops—Tim© to do Something. St. Petersburg. Oct. 10.—Following is the text of an order of the day issued by General Kuropatkin and dated Muk den, Oct. 2: "Mors than seven months ago the en emy treacherously fell upon us at Port Arthur before the war had been de clared. Since then by land and sea, Russian troops have performed many heroic deeds, of which the fatherland may Justly be proud. The enemy, how ever, is not only not overthrown, but in his arrogance continues to dream of complete victory. The troops of the Manchurian arniy in unvarying good spirits, hitherto have not been numer ically strong enough to defeat the Jap anese army. Much time is necessary for overcoming all the difficulties of strengthening the active army so as to ena.ble it to accomplish with complete success, the arduous but honorable task imposed upon it. It is for this reason that in spite of the repeated repulse of Japanese attacks upon our positions at Tatchekiao, Liandiansian and Liao Yang, I did not consider that the time had arrived to take advantage of these successes and to bring a forward movement, and I therefore gave the or der to retreat. "You left the positions you had so heroically defended, covered with piles of the enemy's dead and without allow ing yourselves to be disturbed by the foe and in full preparedness for a fresh fight. Afler a five days' battle at Liao Yang you retired on new po sitions which had been prepared pre viously. After successfully defending all advanced and main positions you withdrew to Mukden under most diffi cult conditions. "If the regiments which already have been sent out prove insufficient! fresh troops will arrive, for the inflexible wish of the emperor that we should vanquish the foe will be inflexibly ful filled. Heretofore the enemy, in oper ating, has relied on his great forces, and, die posing of his armies so as to surround us, has chosen as he deemed flt his time for attack, but now the mo ment to go to meet the enemy, for which the whole army has been long ing, has come, and the time has arriv ed for us to compel the Japanese to do tttttUlft our will, for the forces of the Man churian army are strong enough to be gin a forward movement. Nevertheless you must be unceasingly mindful of the victory to be gained over our strong and gallant foe. "Our army, strong in its union with the emperor and all Russia, performed great deeds of heroism for the father land in our wars arid gained for itself well-merited renown amonst all na tions. Think at every hour of the de fense of Rusisa's dignity and rights in the far east, which have been in trusted to you by the emperor's wish. Think at every hour that to you the defense of the honor and fame of the whole Russian army has been confided. The illustrious head of the Russian land, together with the whole of Rus sia, prays for you, blesses you for your heroic deeds. Strengthened by this prayer and the small conscious ness of the importacne of the task that has fallen tu us, we must go forward fearlessly with a firm determination to do our duty, to the end, without sparing our lives.

A physician was hurriedly summoned, and today the lady is a trifle improved, altho suffering considerably from her awful experience. Mrs. Moore was pre paring the evening meal when the acci dent occurred. She had mounted a chair in order to reach some articles from a shelf more easily, when the chair slipped, and in falling the woman struck on one of the rounds of the chair, fastened in a vertical manner. The piece of wood pierced her side, passing into the flesh a distance of about four inches, inflicting a ghastly wound, which was filled with particles of clothing, etc., so great was the force of the fall. Mrs. Moore, with no as sistance at hand, was forced to strike the lower portion of the chair with her feet In order to free herself.

"I knew if there was a high-bnll country anywhere, you would find it." Ex-Governor Boies, However, Will Be Dated For Some Viv Political Work ANNOUNCEMENT PLEASES THEM Reported That Boies, Who Is Fairly Idolized By the Democrats, Is Also Going Into Indiana and Other States to Help Along the Campaign—Some Additional Speakers. -c SbiA? Special to ft 1 Times-Republican. DeS" Moines, Oct. 10.—The democrats have demonstrated that they are incap able of making any general campaign in Iowa this year, the only work to be done out in the state being by a few of the candidates for state office. Maurice O'Conrtor, of Fort Dodge, is to be out on the stump this week in northern Iowa towns. The work of ex Senator Schmidt of Davenport, has been confined largely to the eastern part of the state, but it is announced he may go out in the state almost any, tli«e. Gotttge Cullison, of Harlaa, is doing some work.' Walter McHenry, of Des Moines, wMwas once the demo cratic candidate fbr secretary of state, Is to go on th^ stump. He has al ready made a few speeches at conven tions. Mr. McHenry has been waver ing in his faith the past few years and last campaign went out to a mining camp near Des Moines and spoke at a republican rally. He is especially well informed on the tariff question. This year he speaks for Parker. Judge Spurrier, at one time conspicuous as a strong iroh-bition republican, is to do some work in this campaign for the democrats. The most important an nouncement by the democrats, however, is that they are going to date ex-Gov ernor Horace Boies for some political work in Iowa. He will speak in Iowa City and In Davenport, if meetings can be arranged, and he will especially urge his old and influential following to vote for Parker and for Wade. The democrats are much delighted with this prospect for they fairy idolize the ex-governor, who has been living quiet ly on his farm. It is also declared that the ex-governor will go into Indiana and other states to do some campaign work. Charles A. JValsh, of Ottumwa, is now said to be practically in charge of the campaign work in Indiana, and thru him the arrangements have been made for Boies to go there. Col. Joseph Eiboeck is to speak at Iowa Center, Iowa county, this evening with Judge Wade and he will accompany Wade for some time in the strong German communities. At state central head quarters, George Huffman, formerly state chairman, has taken hold and is managing the speakers, which indi cates some desire there shall be at least a show of a campaign tlfis year. The campaign in the Second district will be conducted by Judge Wade per sonally and reports from the counties of the district indicate he Is wasting no time asleep. He Is speaking in the small places and is traveling out in tha country, but later will get into the cities. It is certain he will have as helpers several from outside the state, probably John Sharp Williams and Carter Harrison. In the Sixth district A. Brewster and his friends feel that they have scored a good point against Major Lacey on the proposals for joint debate and the refusal of the congres sional committee to allow any joint discussion of issues. Mr. Brewster Is out making a personal canvass of the district. The populists have nominat ed a strong man in that district which will have a tendency to help Major Lacey, for he will draw from a vote that is naturally democratic. The populist candidate is the leader of the labor organizations at Albia and in the western part of the district. In both the Second and Sixth districts, how ever, the republicans are well organized and Messrs. Dawson and Lacey are making winning campaigns so that there is no apprehension of the defeat of either. While George Taylor, of Ottumwa, had stated he would put up an elec toral ticket in Iowa, it was hardly sup posed he would do so. It was evident from the first that his candidacy for president, aside from gratifying a lit tle cheap vanity was planned for use in some of the border and eastern states and not to affect the results in Iowa. Mr. Taylor Is a democrat In fact and has been such for a long time and whatever of effect hi« candidacy would have would be to weaken the demo crats by withdrawing from them the few colored democratic votes that for T.-R BULLET/ HENEt Sun rises Oct. 11, 6:07 sets 5:27.

But Taylor is said to not have a very large personal following in Iowa. His candidacy has not even aroused the Indignation of the colored voters. The situation in Van Buren county is jn,ore- pmusin* seat in the legislature is a matter 'of small consequence from a party view. The whole scheme to elect a democrat to oust Dr. Summers was evolved by Editor George F. Smith, of the State Line Democrat, who watched his chance and sent in the petition nomi nating Whltaker.The problem present ed is a new one but republicans be lieve the solution is not according to the plans laid. Dr. Summers can hold his place until the legislature meets, then he must choose between his fed eral position and a seat in the legis lature. One can not be a pension exam iner any more than he can be a post master and sit in the legislature but it is up to the individual to resign one of the places or be refused a seat and vote in the legislature. But there is no actual vacancy at this time. The republicans would have done better to have had Dr. Summers resign and have held an election at this time. Unless he does resign there will bp trouble when the legislature meets—all on the sup position that the biennial elections amendment carries. The governor of Minnesota has three meetings In Iowa this week, one of them in the Second district not far from his boyhood home. Gov. Van Sant is one of the most aggressive ad vocates of tariff revision and reciproc ity in the northwest and, last summer at a convention In his state he spoke out boldly for a policy of progress In line with the views which have since been expressed by President Roosevelt and Senator Fairbanks. It is anticipat ed he will be able to do great good in the Second district, and would do much more If he could give about two weeks to speaking in the district.

Twenty seven dead have been recovered from the wreck, seventeen of them were killed instantly.The injured num ber close to thirty, mtiny of whom are in a dying condition. The passenger was the second sec tion of the regular train from Wichita to St. Louis and was carrying excur sionists to the World's Fair. The for ward coach, which was crowded and. In which most of the casualties occurred was telescoped, the remainder of both trains was badly damaged. It is said the freight engineer was responsible for the wreck, having for gotten his orders, to take a side track at Knobnoster, Just east of Warrens burg.The trains met on a sharp curve both running at a good rate of speed. The impact 'of the collision was ter rific, sleeping passengers were hurled in every direction. The passenger train was made tip of three coaches and a Pullman, with no baggage car, the front coach being next to the tender. When the trains met the heavy freight train pushed the passen ger engine back into the first coach.. The tender literally cut the coach fit two and never stopped until it had ploughed Itself half way thiu the car and its passengers, killing those in the forward end instantly, and mangling all within reach in a most horrible man ner, Many of the dead are almost un recognizable. The next two coaches were badly damaged, but the passen gers fared better, all except a few es caping with slight injuries. The Pull man remained upright and none of its occupants was hurt. So tightly was the tender and coach wedged together that it will take unusual efforts to separ ate them. The injured were taken to Sedalia and the dead were brought to Warrens burg. The coroner immediately set about making preparations for holding an inquest. The freight was extra. The crew had, according to the conductor, been in structed to take a siding, to let the passenger pass. The first section of the passenger had gone by when the Jreight pulled out. The conductor assert* the passenger bore no signal that another section was following. The scene of the wreck was on a down grade, on either side of which there was a steep rise, and both trains had put on extra steam to carry them up the opposite hill and when they met at the curve at the lowest point they were running at a terrific rate. Relief trains carrying physicians were sent out as quickly as possible, from surrounding towns. It was some tlmebeforethe dead and injured could be extricated from the debris. The dead were carried up the track and laid in rows in an open space until the relief train arrived, while the injured were cared for as well as could be. The dead are: Mrs. W. J. Darst and son, Gilbert, of Dexter, Kas. W. H. Allen and two sons, of Pitts burg Kas. Dorethy Greer, of Pennsboro, Mo. L. F. Bures, Cal Reed, Gertrude Loud, Dicy Ream, all of Bronaugh, Mo.
