A SENSATIONAL RUMOR Ijondon Hears That at Port Arthur llussia Has Ixst Flight More Ves sels Sunk by Japs. This Thought to toe tout a Repetition of the News of the Battle a Week Ago. St. Petersburg, Feb. 16. A dispatch has been received here from Viceroy Alexieff, dated Feb. 15, saying: "Captain Reitzenstein, commander of the Russian cruiser division, tele graphs that his division destroyed a steamer in Sangari (Thugaro) straits. The above is thought to refer to the sinking of the merchant vessel Nakonoura Maru, reported in these columns several days ago. St. Petersburg, Feb. 16. Major Gen eral Pfltig, Viceroy Alexieft's chief of staff, telegraphs that the situation at Port Arthur is practically unchanged. Reports from Yin Kau, near New Chwang, he says declare that the Jap anese are preparing to land at Tsin jenad. A message received from the frontier guard says that mounted pa trols, believed to be Japanese, were seen in the vicinity of Hsin Ming Ting, northeast of Mukden. No Japanese battleships have been v seen in the roadstead of Tatung-Kau at the mouth of the Yalu river. MOSTLY RUMORS Is the Wcrd at Present Coming Out cf the Far East. London, Feb. 16. The voluminious dispatches from the far East published here today are again characterized by absence of real light on the situation. Numerous unconfirmed and conflicting rumors are given, and among them is a report of another engagement at Port Arthur in which the Russians lost eight vessels sunk, and ten captured. A correspondent who witnessed the engagement off Port Arthur confirms his previous accounts of the fight. I and asserts again that one Japanese torpedo boat was sunk and another deserted by its crew in a sinking con dition and subsequently captured by the Russians. He says also that the Japs lost one battleship and had one cruiser put out of action, and that the colonel of the Fifteenth Russian regi ment was killed by a shell during the bombardment. Cablegrams from Wei Hai Wei and New Chwang report a Japanese fleet, with transports, cruising in the gulf of Pe Cheli, apparently with the idea of effecting a landing near Port Dalny. In connection with the rumors of another bombardment at Port Arthur the owners of the British steamer Foxton Hall, from Barry Dec. 11, via Port Said, for Port Arthur, with coal, which was detained by the Russians at Port Arthur, have received news that she has been destroyed by fire. AN IMPERIAL DECREE Commands All Good Chinese to Be Strictly Neutral. Washington, Feb. 15. Sir Chang Tung Liang Sheng, th? Chinese min ister, has transmitted to the state de partment a translation of the imperial decree proclaiming the neutrality of 0GI1T AM) MtM, Day and night, sunshine and shadow are not more different from each other than a healthful from a sickly woman. The healthful woman carries light and sunshine with her wherever she goes. llie woman who suffers from ill-health casts a shadow on her own hap piness and the happiness of others. She cannot help it. Those who suf fer cannot smile and sing. Ill-health in woman is generally trace able to disease of the delicate womanly organism. Many women have been, re stored to happiness by the use of Dr Tierce's Favorite Prescription. If there is an invalid woman, suffering from female weakness, prolapsus, or falling of womb, or from leucorrhea who has used Dr. Pierce's Favorite Prescription with out complete success Dr. Pierce would like to near from such person and it will be to her advantage to write as he offers, in perfect good faith, a reward of $500 for any case of the above maladies which he cannot cure. "I feel it my duty to inform you that 1 had been a sufferer for many years from nervous ness with all its symptoms and complications," writes Mrs. O. N. Fisher, of 1861 Lexington Ave,,. New York, X. Y. "I was constantly going: to see a physician. I was induced to ask Dr. Pierce's advice. I then took five bottles of Fa vorite Prescription. I am not now cross and irritable, and I have a pood color in my face ; have also gained about ten pounds in weight and one thousand 0 comfort, for I am a new woman once more." The dealer who offers a substitute for "Favorite Prescription " does so to gain the little more profit paid on the sale of less meritorious medicines. Dr. Pierce's Common Sense Medical Adviser is sent free on receipt of stamps to pay expense of mailing only. Send 21 one-cent stamps for the paper-covered book, or 31 stamp for the cloth bound. Address Dr. R. V. Pierce, Buffalo, N. Y. i REAL Mem t:' -" va turctajj:.Min6se war! The decree is ns follovs: "Whreis, a stato of war now exists between Japan and Russia; and "Whereas, in view of the friendl relations between this government and the governments of both, the said countries, it behooves China to take proper steps for the maintenance of a strict neutrality. "We hereby command therefore the Manchu generals, governor gener als and ine governors of all the pro vinces that they issue orders to all civil subjects and persons residing within their jurisdiction to observe a strict neutrality between the con tending powers with a view to the preservation of good feeling and gen eral quiet, and to commit no act, In tentionally or unintentionally in viola tion thereof. "We hereby declare and make known this, our command." The Count Went Crazy. St. Petersburg, Feb. 16. During the patriotic demonstration at Warsaw on Sunday a certain Count Dembsky be came demented and fired into a crowd from the balcony of his residence. He killed three persons and wounded twenty. He tried to commit suicide before he was secured. Driven Back by Storm. St. Petersburg, Feb. 16. It is af firmed here that after the bombard ment of Hakodate (which has not been officially corroborated) the four Rus sian cruisers which took part in the engagement were driven back to Vlad Ijostock by a storm. Cable Working Again. New York, Feb. 16. The Commer cial Cable company has sent out the following notice: "We are advised that the Hong Kong-Foo Chow cable has been restored." The Red Sea Fleet. Port Said, Feb. 16. The Russian battleship Oslabya, the volunteer fleet transport Saratoff and four torpedo boat destroyers are at Jobel Zukup, in the Red sea ninety miles from Babel-El-Mandeb and the volunteer transport Smolensk and another de stroyer are at Daodalus or Abdul Khessan, on the Red sea, SCO miles south of Suez. The Japanese War Loan. Tokio, Feb. 16. The subscriptions to the war loan will close March 10. The empress of Japan presented gifts to Baroness De Rosen, wife of the last Russian minister, before her departura from Tokio. A STRIKING SCENE Representative Shafroth's Unseating Marked by Sensation. Washington, Feb. 16. Involuntarily relinquishing his seat as a member ri the house of representatives, Mr. Shafroth, of the First district of Col orado, furnished a profound sensation. The manly and earnest words of the Colorado member fairly took the breath of the house as he proceeded to put the first case on record in that body where a member gave up his seat, acknowledging that his election had been tainted by fraud. For this fraud, Mr. Shafroth declared he was not In any way responsible nor was he aware that it had been perpetrated until the evidence had been adduced before the elections committee of the house. It was not done, he said, for the purpose of causing his elec tion. As he announced the conclusion of eight years service in this manner, most unsatisfactory to himself, his voice betokened the emotion he felt. The hush which spread over the floor and galleries when the purport of his remarks was realized became almost painful. But when he sat down w'th words of thanks on his lips for the treatement he had received from his colleagues on both sides of the cham ber, applause burst forth and contin ued long and heartily. Following the suggestion of Mr. Shafroth in his speech to the house, the proper resolu tion for his unseating and the seating of Mr. Bonynge was drawn up and this was agreed to with silent assent. Bridge Destroyed by Dynamite. Salonica, European Turkey, Feb. 16. A band of Bulgarians dynamated a bridge between Demirhissar and Djum bala. Seven workmen and two sold iers were killed. TERSE TELEGRAMS It is stated that eleven Russian ships were damaged in the recent engagement at Port Ar thur. The Bowling distillery at iAwrencehnrg, Ky , was completely destroyed by Are. The loss is $25,000. The rumors that the Japanese had landed troops at Pigeon Bay or elsewhere on the Liao Tung peninsula, are unfounded. As the Ohio legislature is now in session. Sen ator llanna's successor will not be appointed by the governor, but at once elected. Private advices from New Chwang state that the missionaries are congregating there on ac count of the grave condition of affairs in Man churia. The Wabash Railroad company has issued a mortgage to cover a $10,000,030 issue of bonds for the new World's Fair improvement and ter minals. Petersburg, Ind., will send a bloek of coal three and a half feet square and eleven feet thick to the World's Fair. The block weighs three tons. Secretary of the Treasury Shaw said of the death of Senator Uanna; "His loss is national, and in the sad bereavement the humblest will ha participant." I The house committee on ejections has unseat ed Mr. Shafroth of Colorado in favor of Mr. Bonynge, on the ground that the former's elec tion was lainted with fraud. Japan is preparing for a long war, and seems capable of sustaining herself financially for two years. She possesses vat military and naval itores and has excellent home credit. The date of the forward movement of the main body of the Japanese armyl has not been disclosed, but it will probably be deferred until after tbe coiuuletiou of uaval operation. -l$0 Miss M. Cartledge gives some helpful advice to young girls. Her letter is but one of thou sands which prove that nothing is so helpful to young girls who are just arriving at the period of womanhood as Lydia E. Pink ham's Vegetable Compound. "Dear Mrs. Pinkham: I cannot praise Iydia E. Pinkliam's Vege table Compound too highly, for it 13 the only medicine I ever tried which cured me. I suffered much from my firs.t menstrual period, I felt so weak and dizzy at times 1 could not pursue my studies with the usual interest. My thoughts became slug-gish, I had headaches, backaches and sinking spells, also pains in the back and lower limbs. In fact, I was sick all over. " Finally, after many other remedies had been tried, we were advised to jret iydia 12. Pinkliam's Vegetable Compound, and I am pleased to say that after taking it only two weeks, a wonderful change for the better took place, and in a short time I was in perfect health.- I felt buoyant, full of life, and found all work a pastime. I am indeed glad to tell my experience with Iiydia K. Pinkhara's Vege table Compound, for it made a dif ferent girl of me. Yours very truly, Miss M. Cartlkdge, 533 Whitehall St., Atlanta, Ga." $5000 forfait tf original of tbous letter proving genuineness cannot be produced. Suicide Prevented.
