Result is a Total Paralysis at All Great Western Pack- ing Centers. Chicago, July 25.The ihreatened sympathetic strike at the stock yards went into effect at 10 o'clock this morning when 10,000 can workers, steam fitters, electicians, plumbers, machinists, boxmakers, millwrights and helpers, teamsters, cattle hand lers, engineers and firemen went out in sympathy with the meat cutters. Chicago, July 25.A fruitless con ference was held during the day be tween the strike leaders and repre setatives of the packers at the office of Swift & Co. The meeting broke up in a disagreement after a short ses sion and President Donnelly's follow ers adjourned to the headquarters oi the American Federation of Labor to discuss a sympathetic strike. An ultimatum was delivered by the strikers soon after negotiations began. It was as follows: "On account of the discrimination shown by the packers and their viola tion of the agreement of last Wednes day all stock yards employes on a strike shall be reinstated within ten days. Those who take the initia tive in reopening activities, such as the butchers, those who kill, are to be re instated within forty-eight hours." This was refused by representatives of the packers, who, in turn, asserted they were willing to adhere to the old contract and that they had named Samuel McLain as an arbitrator in ac cordance to the terms of that agree ment. In the reply to the ultimatum ot the strikers the employers also as serted they stood ready to remedy any errors or mistakes made in efforts ta fulfill the old contract. The union men announced that they were firm in the determination that theold agreement was made null and void by the alleged discrimination shown Friday. After the breaking up of the con ference Thomas I. Kidd of the Amer ican Federation of Labor, who was practically the spokesman of the laboi leaders, said: "There will be no more conferences unless they are arranged for later. The packers said they would stick to the first agreement. The strikers said that the agreement had been rendered void by the discrimination of Friday and that a new agreement must be made This new agreement provided for thg taking back of the butchers within forty-eight hours and of the other men within ten days. The packers would not agree to this and peace is not in sight." Packers Are Given Warning. The meeting of labor leaders, fol lowing the failure of the peace con ference with the packers, decided not to. recede from the demands, outlined.

Japanese Try to Break Through Rus sian Lines. Liaoyang, July 25.Two Japanese divisions have tried to break through Lieutenant General Count Keller's left. General Herschelman, with the aid oi reinforcements hurriedly sent forward, made a successful stand. Details of the engagement are not yet known. The Japanese have left only two di visions at Kaichou. These are strong ly entrenched and on the defensive. Other Japanese troops formerly at Kai chou were embarked on transports for the vicinity of Port Arthur,. The cap ture of that stronghold has become a vital question for the Japanese. They have been able hitherto to: adopt the offensive, but they realize that General Kuropatkin himself will be prepared soon to take the offensive and foresee that they must have a strong naval base. Port Arthur is the key to all Japanese operations. BATTLE AT SYBEL PASS. Engagement Results in Engagement of Russians. St. Petersburg, July 25.-General Kuropatkin reports in a dispatch to the emperor that a detachment ol Russian troops commanded by Col onel Tsybulsky gave battle in the Sy bel pass July 17 to a superior force of Japanese. The engagement resulted in the retirement of the Russians with the loss of 1 officer and 46 men killed and 4 officers and 182 men wounded. In another fight on the Mukden road July 19 several companies of dismount ed Cossacks offered a stubborn resist ance to the Japanese advance guard. The Russians fell back On Siaosyr. One man was killed and thirteen wounded. The Japanese suffered con siderable losses. JAPS HOLD SIGOW PASS. V. Are Expected to Push Forward j^yhen Reinforced. Sinzintin, Seventy Miles.

Steamers Stopped Pending Re ceipt of Orders Will Be SetatLibery. St. Petersburg, July 25.The Asso ciated Press is able to announce that Russia has informally notified Great Britain that orders have been issued to the Russian cruisers in tfie Rdcf sea not to arrest any more merchant men and it has been agreed between the two powers that if, pending the receipt of these orders by the captains qf the. St. Petersburg and the Smol ensk, any other ships should be stop ped and held as prizes, these acts shall be regarded as not having taken place and the ships concerned at once -re- leased. While not admitting the illegality of the Russian action in converting vessels of the volunteer fleet into war ships after they had reached the Red Bea,,it is probable, in view of the fact that neutral ships did not receive pre vious notice, that Russia, in order to remove the shadow of a cloud upon their right toflythe war flag, will formally notify the powers of their conversion into warships, thus putting all neutrals upon their guard. In the meantime all the ships seized will be released unless the captains refuse to show their manifests, in which event the procedure in the case of the Malacca probably will be fol lowed. IN THE HANDS OF RUSSIANS STEAMER SCANDIA OF THE HAM- BURG-AMERICAN LINE IS CAPTURED. Suez, July 25.The Hamburg-Amer ican line steamer Scandia, seized by the Russians in the Red sea, has just arrived here. She flies the Russian naval flag, is commanded by a Russian naval officer and is manned by a naval crew. She will enter the canal. Her destination is not known. The Scandia hails from Hamburg and passed Gibraltar July 5 on her way to China. Hamburg, July 25.The officials of the Hamburg-American line declare that the seizure of the steamer Scan dia by the Russians is inexplicable, as her manifests show that she did not carry any kind of war material for Japan. The company has asked the foreign Office to take up the matter and secure an explanation. The Scandia had on board a con signment of ammunition, a portion of which, it is asserted, was to ht.ve been landed at Singapore for transporta tion to the German government sta tions in the South sea. The other por tion was billed to Shanghai for the Chinese government. Port Said, July 25.The Peninsular rid Oriental company's steamer Cey lon, homeward bound from Yokohama and Penang, has arrived here. She reports that the cruiser St. Petersburg of the Russian volunteer squadron sig nalled her July 18 when twenty hours from Suez asking where she was from and where she was bound, after which the Ceylon wast allowed, to proceed. tii tii tii til til tii tii tii an tii No charge for the Little Bank, i i It ist loaned you FREE.

I realize that it is sometimes very embarassing for a lady to tell a physician about her troubles. For that reason I keep in attendance a lady ac my office from 1 to 5:30 p. m. She assists (if desired) all ladies in getting ready for examinations is present (if desired) while I am erivinor adjustments. The cause of all female diseases is in the spinal column (small of the back) and I find it is unnecessary to adjust other than the cause for the removal of the cause always allows the diseased organs to resume their natural positions and functions. Hence I never require local.examination and never give local treatment, and even so, there is no line of diseases with which I have more complete success than those which afflict womankind. &&&&&&&&&&&&& We are now settled in our new location in the BUYER BUILDING, THIRD STREET and invite the public to call and examine our line of GENERAL MERCHANDISE. $ The Fair Variety CashStore, HENR BUENTHER Naturalist and Taxidermist 208 Second St. Postoffice Box No. 686 BEMIDJI, MINN.
