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.

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

The routii i of the first mooting con

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

point a committee to start the move

would be secured.

physician speaking last evening, stat
ed that they apprehended no trouble

very optimistic regarding the project
and felt there was a big field with

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

as to be a positivo torture to hear.
Tho Pope's wish, however, should
have a uiarkod improving effect.

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
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.

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

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

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

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
In the collection are hundreds of
raro aud beautiful shells, gathered by
Mrs. Brintou herself while on the Is
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.
