Int Hands Of The Victorious
St. Petersburg. May 9. 3.33 a. m.
Two official dispatches calculated
to increase the depression existing
among all circles in Russia were given
out last night. From the point of
view of the progress of the campaign
the most important is that iegarding
the capture by the Japanese without
opposition of Feng Wang Cheng on
May' 6. The second gives details con
cerning the killed. wounded and miss
ing among the troops under the com
mand of Lieut. Gen. Zassalitch as the

number of which totals 2.397 officers
Gen. Kuropatkin f6rwarded a mes
sage from Lieut. Gen. Zassalitch who'
bad been left in command of the col
umn reiring from Feng Wang Cheng,
which described the movements of the
enemy in connection with the occupa
ion of the town.
The information caused no surprise
to the officials who had already been
advised of the decison that no attempt
would be made to hold Feng Wang
Cheng. the superiority of the Japanese
in all fighting arms ensuring a disas
ter similar to that at Kiu Lien Cheng.
Therefore. Gen. Zassalitch was given
strict -orders that there should be no
fight of the rear guard.

For any wm
al Togo's official recital of the latest
engagement off Port Arthur. which
was received here today. shows that
the Japanese have blocked the en
trance to the harbor.
On Tuesday morning after the
blockading flotilla had been scatterea
by a gale and the commander of the
flotilla had signalled in vain that the
attempt be abandoned pending the
moderation of the storm. the crews or
the separate ships. in no wise dauntea
by the weather which isolated then
from their comipanions, proceeded to
the work of their own desperate im
tiative. They forced their way in the
face of the Russian fire, which was
more deadly than ever before as a re
sult of the improved Russian defenses.
over the field of mines. Many or
these exploded yet five of the Japd
nese blockading ships were jammed
ihto the inner channel and now prt
vent egress from the harbor to all
craft excepting small boats. This at
tack exceeded all its predecessors in
desperation and the courage displayed
by the volunteer crews is equal to that
showft in any event in the war history
of the world.
An CAM Favorite.
Philadelphia Public Ledger.
An old negro in a South Carolina
town was arrested for stealing chick
ens. and as the old fellow bore a
rather bad reputation it was quite
hard to secure counsel for him. At
last a young lawyer, who had known
Rastus for a long time, took his case,
to the great joy of the old man. When
his trial came off tht judge asked him:
"Are you the defendant?"
The old fellow, perplexed for a mo
ment, then replied: "Na, sah, dat's
de defendant. sah." pointing proudly
at his counsel. "I'se the man wot
stole de chickens."

WHOM SHOULD THE DEMO
A Diversity of Opinion-Parker,
However, Seems To Be The
Newberry's delegates to the state
democratic convention were yester
day seen by a representative of The
Herald and News and asked for a
sta'.ement as to their preference for
a democratic presidential nominee.
and as to whether or not they thought
South Carolina's delegation to St.
Louis should be instructed. As will
be seen from the interviews here pub
lished. there is a diversity of opinion
among the Newberry delegates. but
Judge Parker. of New York. seems to
be the favorite. and an uninstructea
delegation is favored.
The state convention meets in Co
lumbia on the 18th of this month.
Mr. E. H. Aull said that it was
known that he was for Parker. inas
much as that has been the position
of The Herald and News for severai
weeks. He is for Parker, he says. be
cause he believes that Parker is now
and always has been a good and true
democrat. and with the present field he
seems to be the most available man.
and the one with whom the democra
cy would be most likely to win. "The
south." said Mr. Aull. "will support
the nominee of the party and the dele
gation to St. Louis from this state
should go uninstructed, so that they
may be free to vote for any good
democrat who may be presented, and

cv can n6t be questioned and a man
who could command the solid support
of his party. and I believe such a man
would win. The unity which some
newspapers are preaching seems to
me to he a one-sided affair and they
are inconsistent, to say the least.
People who did not support the demo
cratic party and Bryan on former
campaigns are now asking for thaf
which they failed to practice on these
other occasions. I am a strong ad
mirer of Bryan and always have been
since I first saw and heard him. I
have seen a good many insinuations
in the newspapers against Hearst and
some oi them have requested
parties to call at their office and they
will produce the records and the
proof. But there are things to be
said on both sides. I do not agree
with the opinion expressed by some
that Parker is the only man mention
ed for the nomination so far who
would stand a chance of winning. It
seems to me that Hearst is more in
accord with the faction of the deno
cratic party which prevailed in the
last nominations than Parker is. He
has rendered a valuable service to the
party and I notice this morning it
but for the generous contributions
made to the Griggs congressional
campaign committeie two years ago
by Mr. Hearst that the committee
would have had to go out of business
before the campaign was over. I ta
