TO MUKDEN 2 MUKDEN, Tuesday, Sept. Part of the Russian ariuy which is coming to Mukden by wagon road is in danger of being cut off. All day and night Monday the Japanese in the hills on the east road, shollcd tlio Russian troops. In the .Japanese infantry attacked a largo force of Rus sian infantry and artillery which had taken to the hills running parallel to the Japanese, in protecting the flank of the retreating army. Troops,gnus and trauspoits are pool ing into Mukden by traiu and road. Considerable transport was loft bo hind. The roads are in a frightful state owing to the heavy raiu Monday. The main Russian army pushing northward is evacuating Mukden. BELIEVE KUROIMTKIN HAS REACHED SAFETY ST. PETERSBURG, Sept. 7.-1:45 p. in—From tlio latest advices receiv ed by the war office the authorities now believe that the danger of Field Marshal Oyama cutting off Goneral Kuropatkiu has practically passed. According to their calculations tlio whole Russiau army should reach Mukden tomorrow' night. Generals Koroki and Kuropatkiu have beou marching northward along paraloll lines.both armies Duiug great ly hampered by heavy roads, the Jap anese in a rough region and the Rus sians along a flat country but em harassed by the high Chinese corn, which prevented marching 011 tho side of the main roads. No difficulty is being experienced at the Han river, a few miles south of Mukden, where bridges had beou pro vided for crossing the stream. Thoro has beou constant lighting at tho Rus sian roar and along tho eastern wing but so l'ar as is known by tho war office nothing of importance hasoccur rod Binco tho retreat began. The general stall' naturally is retic ent about Kuropatkin's plans, especi ally whether ho intends to stop at Mukden. Hi« decision probably will depend upon tho intentions of the Jap anese. Contingent preparations will probably bo made to evacuate Mukden and thoro is considerable evidence that Kuropatkin, if compollod togo north will make a stand at Tieliug. where tho Russians wintered last year. Tid ing is forty miles north of Mukden. At this point there is a narrow defile, with tho Liao river on ouo sido aud mountains running almost down to the railroad 011 the other. Stops aro being taken to guard against a possible at tempt to cut the line there. Tho report that tho sailing of the Baltic squadron had been postponed until November is officially denied as also is the roport that soveral of the ships composing it devulopod defects. The squadron will sail for Libau Sun day. Kxaatly when it will sail thence is not known. Although too report that Rear Ad miral Ouktouisky in command of the Russian fleet at Port Arthur, is to be court martialed is untrue, the Admir alty has decided to recall him,probab ly placing Captain Wiren of the arm ored cruiser Bayan ill command. It has boon realized all along that Ouk tomsky lacked tho requisites of a com mander of a fleet under such dillicnl ties but owing to tho impossibility of sending a flag ollicer to Port Arthur ho is allowed to remain ill commaud. Tlio admiralty i« greatly dissatisfied with his action in returning to Port Artlinr, August 10. in the face of the order of the Into Admiral Withoft not to'do HO and this led to the decision to supplant him. YOUTH WAS SHOT BV A COHPANION WEST CHESTER, Pa., Sept. 7. Edward H. Hughes, aged six yoars, of Cheyiiey, near here, was shot and in stantly killed today by his cousin, James Robb, aged 8 years. The body was litorally torn to pioces by a beavy charge of bird shot. The two hoys wore playing about the Robb residence when they found the gun.

FOUNTAIN REMOVED YESTERDAY The public fountain yesterday after noon was removed from its foundation near the weigh scales to its new sito on the west side of the culvert on Mill street,where a brick foundation is be ing prepared for it. It will probably bo a|day or so before the snpply and waste pipe are connected and until these are finished the fountain can not be set up. The water will not ho turn ed on uutil after paving is completed on that portion of Mill street. Hos ital Sewer Fully Repaired. The large sixteeu-inch iron pipe car rying the sewage from tlio Hospital for the Insane into the river, which was damaged by tlio ice gorge last winter, has been repaired and now thoroughly intact carries tlio sewage across the river near to the opposite shore. Eacli joint of pipe damaged was re placed with new. The work was por forniod under great difficulties, the water boing ovor waist doep in tlio middle of tlio rivor where a groat deal of the work hud to be done. Each of the joints is 12 foot long and weighs 1600 to 1700 pounds and could only be handled with oliains and blocks sup ported by a tripod. Tlio difficult work was performed □ nder the supervision of Chief En- T. Chambers. The employes who along with the Chief Engineer deserve credit for the good results aohiovod are: F. L. Nelf, U.

GRAND ENCAHPHENT OF KNIGHTS TEHPLAR SAN FRANCISCO, Sept. 7.—Tho preliminary meeting of the Grand En campment of tho Knights Templar was held today. Tho opening addross of welcome was delivered by Governor I'ardeo, of California,ou behalf of the Knights of the Stato,who was follow ed by Mayor Sohmitz on behalf of the city of San Francisco. The routii i of the first mooting con sisted of appointing committees to handle the many questions which will come before the body. Tho reports of the officers on the current events of the week aud also upon the work of the last tliroo years were received aud referred to tho committees. The grand Masters of the Priory ol England, Ireland and Walos were pre sent as guests. A Hospital at Bloomsburg, A well detlued movement is already on foot in Bloomsburg to establish a hospital here, tho movement having crystalizod through tho death of Will iam Rounsley,whoso lifo oould proba bly have boon saved had there been a hospital here. Tho question has alroady received tho consideration of tho physicians of town audit is likely that a mooting will be called in the near future by tho physicians to further consider the matter. There have heeu two methods suggested whereby tho object could bo attained; olio, bv haviug Council ap point a committee to start the move ment, and the other, by haviug the Board of Trade take up the matter. A stock company would bo formed aud the proposition placed upou a sub stantial basis, after which state aid would be secured. Regarding the lattor, a prominent physician speaking last evening, stat ed that they apprehended no trouble whatevor in socuritig aid from the state after the hospital was once plac ed upon a substantial basis. Ho was very optimistic regarding the project and felt there was a big field with llloomsburg and tho surrouudiug towns and country to draw from, for a suc cessful hospital.—Bloomsburg Pro.is. Only Male Singers. Tho desire of Popo Pius X to have the church return to the customs of the early days and have only male singors is being respected by many of tho Catholic churchos of this land, as is also his liking for the old Gregoriau music instead of the more modern and as he thinks less devotional forms to which we have grown aoeustoined, Sunday throe large Philadelphia churohes introduced their new men's choir. There is nothing more iiui/res< sive than a well-trained, carefully selected choir of male voioes,as it can bo heard to perfection in tho Papal choir and in the great European ca thoilral, but, nnfortuiiatoly, the Am erican climate aud tho American boys disinclination to submit to the rigor ous training necessary have as yot giv en us uo reallv groat male choirs. Too often they aro so exoorable musically as to be a positivo torture to hear. Tho Pope's wish, however, should have a uiarkod improving effect. Death of Mrs. Pullen. Mrs. Hugh Garuett Pullen of Roch ester, N. Y., died at the residence of lior sister, Mrs. Harry S. Barrett, Binghaiutoii,on Friday morning, Sept ember 2. Mrs. Pullen was a sister of Mrs. Ar thur H. Woolley of this oity aud dur ing her several visits here made a host of friends, who sympathize deoply with the family in their sad bereave ment. FOUNTAIN WILL JEJEMOTEU Daring the next few (lays the publio fountain will be romoved from its pres ent position at the weigh scales to the wostern side of the now uulverton Mill street. This will be pursuant to action taken at the last meeting of Council. The fountain although it lias very nobly fulfilled its mission in minister ing to both human bolngs and dumb animals has not been wholly a succoss in Its present position. In the (list place the ice attachment, while it con sumed ice by the hundred weight,was never efficient in cooling the water of the fountain and after a trial was not usod. The next troublo was oaused by the waste water, which proved a groat nuisance to people residing noar the fountain. During last winter the waste pipe bursted. In view of the im provements oontemplated on Mill street Oounoil did not see its way clear to spend any money ou repairs and tlio fountain has not been in commission this summer. It has now been decided to romove the fountain to au entirely new loca tion where the facilities will be bet ter forconduoting otT the waste water. The west side of the Mill street oul vert affords such a spot, where the waßte pipe of the fountain can be made to conneot with th 6 water course dir ectly below. The fountain will be off the street entirely, occupying a place on the sidewalk. The intention is to have the wide area at the junction of Mill, Bloom and Northumberland streets olear of obstacles of every sort, lu addition to the scalo the large pole of the Ameri can Telegraph and Telephone Com pany, whioh stands near the center, will also be removed. .Tlio removal of all these will be a fine improvement, which will be all the more appreciated when the stroet is paved at that point.

THEY LITE OH lOJJENTS A DAY Employed aloiig Heading Railway system and especially on the Sharnok iu division, there are about three thousand Italians who maintain them selves on teu cents a day and even less. Among them there is little sick ness and each of them is hale aud hearty. All of the men are fresh from Italy, being procured by the agents of the company aB soon as they land at Castle Garden. They live in the various towns along the Koadiug's lines, the company arranging for their susten ance and shelter. Eaoh gang of fiom six to twenty men is in charge of a man who occupies practioally the same position as the oldtime padrone. He arranges for the food for the men and sees to it that they report regularly for work and do not dissipate. Each day he reoeives a shipment of food from firms that have been awarded contraots by the company. One of these firms, Romo brothers, supplies several thousand loaves of stalo bread each day. The bread has attained a solidity that would make a loaf a dangerous weapon in the hands of a man, bnt the Tuscans soak it in ooSee and relish it. In faot they prefer It to frosh bread and exist almost entirely upon it. Thoy eat but little meat and oonsume large quantitios of potatoes and onions. The padrouos figure out that it oosts about ten couta a day to keep a man, They also say that the meu will not speud on the average of twenty-five oents a year for medical attention. In faot they say they seldom if evor get siok and that the only money expend ed for medioal aid and medicine is for dressing of the injuries which the men sustain as the result of aocident while at work. Nearly all of the aliens have bank aocouuts in the towus contiguous to their shacks and the manner in which they accumulate money is, in consid eration of the fact that they are paid only from SI.OO to $1.50 a day.asouroe of increasing wonder to bank officials. Each pay day they make a deposit af ter paying their board, wliioh may amount to five or BIX dollars, aud al lowing themselvos possibly a half dol lar or a dollar for tobaaoo and inci dentals during the ensuing month. It is estimated that a thrifty Italian who earns thirty dollars a month will save twenty of it. When he accumulates five or six hundred dollars he does not consider himself wealthy, aH is gener ally supposed,but shrewdly uses overy artifice possiblo to keep his fellow workers from learning what he is worth. Nor does he change his mode of living. Tlio ten cents a day diet seems to aßree with him and to satisfy him. Oft-times it occurs that when he has saved a few hundred dollars he will pack up his belongings and RO back to sunny Italy where he says his mouey will go even further than bore. AHERICAN CONSUL SAFE IN HARPUT WASHINGTON, Sept. 7.—The Am erican consul at Harput has reportod to the State Department that he has visited Bitlis aud is now in Moush. Ho says that tho governor genoral of the latter province paid him a visit on his arrival and offered him an escort to visit tho Sassuu mountains if ho de sired. Tho Consul states that the Distriat of Sassun is tranquil and pacified and the strategic points are garrisonod by infantry detaohments and permanent barracks erected. The survivors of the niassaore are in destitute condition but are attempting to rebuild their burn ed villages witli a little government aid. The consular corps at Bitlis esti mates the number of massacred and doad from exposure, and hunger, etc., as 3,!i00. The American colony at Bitlis appears to be iu no present or prospec tive danger. In the Moush district insurgents have adopted a guerrila form of waifare, ambuscading troops aud bodies of Kurds. They demand certain reforms which concern chiefly matters of looal administration and economio questions not involving the integrity of the Em pire. A number of villages have been plundered aud borued aud many per sons killed and maltreated, aud anoth er massaore is daily expeoted by the armenian population which is iu des titute ciroumstanoes. About 15,000 have lost everything and are staiviug, many being ill aud wouuded. Small contributions toward their relief have been received through the American board of Commissioners for foreign missions at Bitlis but muoh more is needed DONNELLY BELIEVES STRIKE WILL LAST OHIOAQO, Sept. 7.—The voting by the local unions interested in the ques tion of whether the stook yards strike shall be declared off or not, is over and the ballots are to be oounted this moruing. The result will be first made known to the ooufereuce board of the Allied Trades Oounoil and after that body has taken "final aotion" it will be known definitely what the strikers re going to do. "I think the proposition lias been aofeatod," said President Donnelly. "Of tho 1,1385 beef butchers," ho said, "750 met and 09 per cent, voted to re main out ou strike. Tho teamstors have announced their intention to stay out despite the aotiou of the other un ions." The beef loaders, 200 in number, votod uuauimonsly to continue the strike. It was stated by the paokers that there were no desertions from the un ion raukß when their establishments opened today. Oass Schmidt, vice president of the Botcher Workmen,said It was estimat ed that no more than 25 per cent, of all the strikors throughout tho coun try voted on the peace proposition. A typhoid fever epidemio, wliioh is raging iu Williamstown, Dauphin oouuty.has been traced to au old well. Many families have the disease. THE TWO GAMES OFJASE BALL The two games uf base ball at De- Wilt's Monday between the Old Timer Reserves and the Bloomsburg Y. M. O. A. proved oacli a drawing card.

The sad news was conveyed to this city by telegram daring Saturday af ternoon. The deooased was a young mau still single. He was a native of Heading, where his parents, a brother and other relatives reside. He was a capable young man, skillful as a roller aud had held a position iu the plant here for a couple of years. Ho was a well iuformed and intelligent young mau of pleasing personality aud was well liked about the mill. The news of his doath Saturday caused much 10- gret. The deoeasod, a boarder at Hotel Baldy, was removed to Keading on August the lOtb. CORIOS FEOI JHILIPPINES One of the finest collections of our ios ever brought to this city will bo placed on exhibition on Mill street in a few days. The corios lepreseut a oolloctiou brought from the Philippine Islands by Mrs. Elizabeth M. Briniou, who Eorvjd as a trained nurse ou the Islands for some time. There have been other collections brought to Danville from the Isl«uds by returning soldiers, wliioh consisted largely of war implements and plain wearing apparel. Mrs. Briutou's collection excels in ooutaiuiug nut only the above olaBS of articles, but also an immense assortment of fiue fabrics, dress good-*, drapories, embroidered and drawn work, bosides rare and beautifnl dishes and many other articles never before seen here in such variety. The dress goods alone show that the natives of the Islands are not only the deftest of weavers and that they are skilled in art of dye ing, but also that there are in the Philippines taste aud a love of the beautiful: Mrs. Brinton'B oollection fills a whole apartmout aud what it does not oontain it would be dlfUoult to tell. Of great interest to ladies is a dress of a wealthy Philippine lady, made with a train alter a style peculiar to the Islandß. The dress goods are snperb, not only in point of fine texture but also in the beautful shade of ooloring. A very popular goods resembles silk Homo what, bat is made of the fibre of the Josie plant and is aalted "Josie" (pronounced "Hosie)." Another beautiful olotli, finer than any,is made of the fibre of the piueap plo. This is uot only used for dress goods but for table cloth,doiließ,hand kerchiefs and for odlTs aud collars. These boautifol fabrios are all woveu 011 the most primitive of looms. When dyed tlio colors are "fast." When uot dyed they are white or cream oolored. The embroidery and the drawn work all of wliioh was exeouted by the pati ent Philippine women,are a marvel in this oountry even to tho most dexter one hands at such work. There are score of specimens or eaoli in Mrs. Brinton 1 * large collection, no two of whioli are aliko and all wouderful ill showing how fanltles.i aud mechanical work can be that is turned out by tlio human hand. The collection contains an immense vaiiuty of goods made of straw. The mattiug is most beautiful in design. the colors brilliant and "fast." Mrs. Brinton has nearly enough mattiug to cover oue floor, which, Bhe says, in the Philippines is used also for cover ing the walls. Owing to the preval ence of earthquakes neither plaster nor paper cau be employed in the houses on any of the Islands. Neither can window glass be used for the same rea son aud in lien of glass beautiful semi trauspareut shells are artistically In serted iu the windows, several spoci mons of the latter belug iucludod among the curios. Mrß. Brinton pass ed through a number of earthquakes and to hear her describe how she was tumbled about as the earth rockid be naath her feet one cau easily under stand that plaster aud wall p.tper, to say nothing of glass, would uot prove vory serviceable on houses. Two Philippine cigars a foot long and over six inohes iu oircamferonoe seemed to require some explanation. These Mrs. Brinton said were made by factory girls, who by oustom were al lowed one cigar per day to be made by the girl herself. The native girl, however, is a resourceful creature and tho cigar designed for herself befoie long bugan to grow. It was soon the size of throe olgars aud kept ou grow ing uutil it attained the euormous di mensions described above. Such oigars are used by the entire family at home, eaoli member iu turn taking a pull at the big roll of tobacco. Mrs. Briutou has brought au endless variety of straw headgear along home. The most of these are from the Island of Luzon, where the natives aro ex ceedingly picturesque. Mrß. Briutou's own hat whioh she woie when she went abroad in tlie sun, is about as big as an umbrella. The men's hats are wouderful oraations, bearing more of a resemblance to a basket than to headgear. Few of the native lists are less than five or six feet in oirouiufer enoe. In the collection are hundreds of raro aud beautiful shells, gathered by Mrs. Brintou herself while on the Is lands. Thoro aru nearly a hundred other curios, wliinti merit a description, but spaco will not permit—suoli as the Pliilippiuo stove (made of earthen ware) ornaments made of ivory aud of the beautiful hard woods which grow on the islands; rare draperies, oombs and shoes of wood,artioles of all sorts made of bamboo; a full tea Bet of Jap aneso dishes and bolos, wliioh have seen bloody service, presented to the nurses by natives who received treat ment in the hospital. The curios will be placed on exhibi tion in a vacant room on Mill street in a few days. An admission fee will be charged, the proceeds to be douat od'to the Pine Street Lutheran ohnrch. T. M. 0. A.
