M HAVING GUN PRACTICE Russians Are More Active Than Has : Been Their Wont Lately Other Notes of War. London, -.'November 12. Not a word lias come from Port Arthur, where London, for twenty-four hours has believed that General Nogi and General Stoessk'l wc'-i-e discussing itcrms of capitulation. A report from Che Foo declares that General Nogi refused (o grant the armistice asked for by the Rus sian commander last Wednesday. This rumor is not confirmed. For that matter, tlie original announee rocnt frm Tokio' that. Jtoessel had asked for an armistice has nut, yet received official sanction. So far as officially known, there fore, there is nothing to indicate that he Japanese have relaxed their ef forts to carry the surrounding forts, or .that Stoessel has weakened in his determination to hold out. The Che Foo corespondent of the Daily Telegraph says the Japanese are hastening their plans to combat the Baltic fleet. All naval officers who arc not engaged on active serv ice and who can posibly be recalled have been summoned ijrom Japan, preparatory to starting for their preparranged destinations. Artillery firing and occasional conflicts between infantry outposts continue along the Shahke river, some times the outposts fraternize and exchange eigarcts and other hix- Wries. An English correspondent at Muk den says the conviction ' prevails there, that the Japanese reinforce ments are larger than rejorted, con sequently an attack is expected soon. t Gun Practice on the Shahke.

COMPLETE VOTE FROM MISSOURI GIVES ROOSEVELT A PLURALI TY OP THIRTY THOUSAND. FOLK GETS ABOUT THE SAME Missouri Republicans Are Jubilant Over Results. Full returns have been received by the GloberJJemocrat from every coun tv in the state, either in the form of the total vote for President and governor or the official or semi-official pluralities on those officers. Changes made in the official returns received duo to errors on the first count have considerably increaserr the Republican lead, the total for the 114 counties of the state giving Roosevelt 30,028 and Mr. Folk a plurality of 20,858. The figures, in detail, will be found in the accom panying table which has been re vised and corrected in accord with the latest returns. The remainder of the Republican state ticket is con sidered safe. McKinley, for Lieu tenant, will pull through with the smallest plurality, but unless the re turns received are in error, it will be sufficient to leave no doubt as to the result. Complete otlicial returns from the 10th congressional district give A. P. Murphy, Republican candidate, a ma jority of S!). This was the closest of the Congressional fights and the last to have its results officially an nounced. It definitely fixes the Re publican representation in Congress at nine, unless contests brought in the St. Louis districts should fur ther increase the number. The pleasure of seeing Missouri pass into Republican con t red was vigorously expressed yesterday - by Walter S. Dickey of Kansas City, chairman of the executive 'commit tee, who fairlv hugged Chairman Niedringhaus and other prominent Republicans when he greeted them at state headquarters.

TWO FACTORIES ARE CERTAIN NEW CONCERNS TO COME IN SPRING IS SAID HUNTS' ASSOCIATION Is Working to Secure the Concerns, Both of Which Are Very Sab- 1 stantiaL .. It is practically certain now that two, if not three, new manufactur ing concerns, will come to this city next spring. These factories will be brought to this city through the efforts of the Merchant 's Association, combined wit hthe Commercial Club. Added impetus was given yesterday to the movement to secure these factories by the Friday night meeting of the Merchants' Association, a,t which this matter was discussed at length and it seems practically definitely decided--to secure the two maybe three concerns, and to get. them to remove to Richmond next spring or summer. The factories are both good sized ones, . in flourishing condition, but for various reasons desire to seek some ether location than the ones now occupied by them. The factories are both sufficiently prosperous to warrant great efforts to be used in securing them. INAUGURATION OF WILL BE MOST Islands of the Seas to be Represente d in The Pageant Growth of Amer ica to be Illustrated in Parade. Washington, Nov. 12. The inau guration of Theodore Roosevelt as President on Mareh 4 will eclipse all ceremonies of this kind for splen dor, lavishness and magnitude of dis play involved. It is the intention of those who will have the matter in charge to make the occasion notable in every respect. The exhibition of uniforms, gift, tinsel, bunting and flags and massing of men in civic and military organizations will be such as to live long in the memory of those fortunate enough "to witness them. Much, will be made of the army and navy in the inaugural parade and at the ceremony of administer ing the oath of office. Jackies from the best ships of the navy will be on hand, the marine corps will be rep resented by a big force and troops will be detailed from all the posts and reservations within, a reasona ble distance from Washington. This big array of soldiery will not be for the purpose of offending those who opposed ' the president's election on MEMORIAL CHURCH Begins to Take on ; Quite a Finished ' ". : ; Appearance.

The idea will merely be to give to the people of the country a proper knowledge of the growth of the United States into a world power. There will be other features that will give emphasis to this fact. The insular possessions of the United States are to have prominent places in the inaugural pageant. There will be natives from Porto Rico, from the Philippines and from Hawaii. In Indian from the government reserva tions will be sent to Washington to fall in line also. Great encourage ment is to be on hand and swell the participation. It is expected that business men's league and clubs will eome to Washington for the festiv ities and that many regiments of the national guard will be here also. In the evening there will be a ball that wil set a new mark for brilliant display. It is the intention to pro vide original and unique features for this affair, which will make it the most notable occasion in the history of our country. TWO SUITS Were Filed Against Street Car Com pany Yesterday. Mrs.; Georgia Snavely and her hus band, John P. Snaveley, each filed damage suits in the circuit court yesterday through their attorneys, Thomas J. Study and John L. Rupe. The former asks for $7,000 and the latter $3,000. Mrs. Snaveley in her complaint states that she boarded a street car west of the city and informed the conductor that she wanted to get off at Tenth and Main streets. The car, she says, was not stopped at that corner but went on to Eleventh street before stopping. In stepping from the car at that corner the plaintiff says she fell and was permnaen fly injured. Mr. Snaveley asks for damages be cause of the injury to his wife. 1 : Liberty Bell Here Friday.

It will probably 'remain here five or ten minutes. Secretary by Next Week. The Merchants' Association will probably choose a secretary -xr week, the office to be a permanent one, as announced in yesterday's Palladium. Several applications have been made by those desiring the position, which would be a good one. The proposition to secure a secretary met with such immediate favor that no time will be lost in se curing one, and by next week the as sociation will have both secretary and new reading rooms. The busi ness men of the city are much iitr ested. REV. GRAHAM TO ARRIVE SOON WILL PREACH HIS INAUGURAL SERMON ON SUNDAY, DECEMBER FOURTH New Pastor Will Reside in the El der Home in North Eleventh Street. Rev. Graham, the new minister will preach his first sermon in the First Presbyterian church on Decem ber 4. Since the resignation of Dr. I. M. Hughes, last June, the First Presbyterian church has been with out a minister. Rev. Graham ac cepted a call to this church and will in all probability, arive in this city within a week or so, as he desires to be in the city, acquainting himself, for some time before deliv ering his inaugural sermon, which will be given on the first Sunday of the last month of the year. For oc cupancy by the Rev. Graham, the First Presbyterian church has se cured the Elder homestead, in North Eleventh street. Here the new min ister will make his home, beginning in a week or so. Although but a young man, Rev. Graham comes to the First Presbyterian church with a fine reputation as an earnest, honest, thorough, conscientious Christian, and the members of the church feel that they have been exceedinly for tunate in their choice of a successor to the Rev. Dr. Hughes, whose long pastorate marked a period of pros perity in the history of this church. Rev. Graham is known as one whose sermons are powerful, forceful, and yet eminently practical in lesson, so much so that he is quite well known. When he was here to deliver his, ser mon, both the personality of the man and his powerful utterances, impressed themselves deeply on the minds' of the ; congregation , and the members and officers of the church are awaiting with interest his com ing and inangnaral sermon.

RIDM RESULTS THE GREATEST FOOTBALL CON TESTS OF SEASON PLAYED . YESTERDAY TIGERS DEFEATED By Their Hated Rivals the Yala Eleven by the Score of Twelve to Nothing. PURDUE WINS FROM INDIANA By Score of Twenty-Seven to Noth ing for State Championship be fore an Immense Crowd. The greatest football contests of the season were played yesterday and hundreds of thousands of peo ple from ocean to ocean attended these gridiron games. Before twenty-five thousand men, women and children the Yale defeated her greatest rival, Princeton, at Prince ton, by the close score of 12 to 0. It was the greatest game ever play ed between the two elevens. Prince ton's defense could not withstand the attacks of - the giant Yale bade field and the Eli's wonderful de fense proved too much for the Or ange and Black offense, which was the best Princeton has had since 1S0G. Every inch of ground w4 contested and the Tigers died with their fangs sunk into, the triumphant Yale bull dog. At Ann Arbor, Michigan,' once more demonstrated the fact that they have a clear title to tbe western championship by defeating Chicago 22 to 12 in a fast, furious, and ex citing game. As was expected Chi gago gave the Wolverines a run for their money and only the wonderful offensive machine of Coach Yost's making prevented Michigan from meeting her first defeat in three years. An immense crowd witness ed the contest. At Indianapolis Purdue over whelmed Indiana by the score of 27 to 0, for the State championship. This victory for Purdue came as a great surprise as it was universally conceded that Indiana would win. After the game the jubilant Purdue rooters painted the town red in hon or of the victory. Minnesota kept up her winning record by taking Wisconsin into camp by the identical score Michi igan defeating the Badgers 2S to to 0. . The surprise , of the day in west ern football was the Northwestern-Illinois- game, which was won by' Northwestern, 12 to 0.
