MAYOR-SUPERINTENDENT rlnh lii-twccn OITU'IiiIm Taken n Per- Konnl Turn. Their" was mother eruption in tlio street department Saturday when Com missioner n.-ili-y attempted to open doors that had been rinsed by Superintendent Clapp. A few days rro Mr. Cliipp took possession of the nfo, books, papers, etc., belonging to the department, according to the teim of the Injunction issued by Jlidpe Watson. I In also closed the doors between 111" ntllce and that occupied by the city wclc,hr. On Saturday Commissioner Daley, with some assistants, attempted to open the doors, and, as Mr. Clapp claims, to ic niove the safe. Tho work had proeedeil only a brief time when Mr. Clapp picked up an axe that was nearby and Inform ed Commissioner Daley that he would make mince meat out of him if ho did not stop. Tills stopped tho proceedings. The next event was the arrest ot Mr. Clapp on n body writ Issued in favor of Mayor Rurke, through his attorneys, Cowles & Moulton. This writ was for the purpose of collecting !"') for rent claimed to be due for the. premises in Mechanic's lane, owned by Mayor Burke, which have been occupied for years by Mr. Clapp. Mr. Clapp eh.. ''--t when the trou ble in the street depa .inent first cumo up Mayor liurke told him to continue to occupy the premises and that he did so. Ho says the first he knew that the mayor wanted the premises vacated was when he was informed Saturday morning that he must move immediately. Mr. Clapp says he secured carters and h.id his (roods moved at once. After moving, the mayor demanded the key but Mr. Clapp refused to rIvu It up, saying that he bought the lock and that it and Ihe key belonged to him. Mr. Clapp further declares that Mayor IVurko owes him for work done mora than the amount ot rent due. The minor's suit was discontinued on Monday and another one for $C00 was lrought.

Wnr Tarty of Itussln Cannot Lonjter Withstand the Pressure for Knd InK of the Wnr Thirteen Ves sel Sunk nnd Six Other Captured. Latest ndvlccs confirm tho mnKnl tudn of the dlsrster suffered by tho Russia n fleet and point to the fact that Russia's hopes, so far as this war Is concerned, now lie In whatever may be accomplished by the oft-beaten army In Manchuria. An official report received from Toklo by the Japanese legation at Washington on Monday evenliiK fays tnat the Ktissluu losses definitely known Include two bftttlo shlps, a coast defense ship, live cruis ers, two special ships and three de stroyers sunk, and two battleships, two coast defense ships, one destroyer and one special service ship captured, while over .l.ftni) prisoners have, been taken, including Hear Admiral Nebap otoff. The Japanese, It would seem, nie still pursuing the Russians nnd it may be some time before the iinal re sult Is known. There Is nothing to clearly Indicate tho extent of the Japanese losses and It is suggested from one sourco that the Toklo government Is waiting to hear from Admiral Rojestvensky by way of Vladivostok before announcing to what extent Its fleet has suffered. The news of the dls.islcr has: caused dei p depression in o'ficlal Rumla though it Is not yrt known geneially ai-'Oiig the Russian people. HoJcsivcnky's defeat Ins glvtu ilse to Ktieweil talk of peace. It Is pointed out Ly the Associated Tress St, Petersburg correspondent that Russia in tills crisis, will turn to France through In foreign. Minister M. Delcasse, while from 'Wash ington nines information that I'resldent Roosevelt In accordance with his prur.ii.ro iiiiiKiinced a long time ago is inking steps to do -ill in his powr to brine ctont peace negotiations. Nothing has been heard from Vice Admitnl Rolestvcnsky. In ToVIo there is 501110 belief that he has perished, while another source fays he was rescued by a toipedo beat, but that lie is wounded. NINETEEN SHIPS LOST Possible Three More Warships Were Sank In the Fight Saturday, nut Report Not Credited. Tokio, May 203 p. m. The number of Russian vessels of all descriptions sunk and captured by Admiral Togo's fleet now stands at nineteen. It Is possible that these additional warships were sunk In the fight Saturday nnd others later. The navy department refrains, how ever, from crediting reports of this na ture until it Is assured of their correct ness. It Is believed tho Ural Is the nnmii of the captured transport which has been omitted In tho list previously cabled. RUMOR OF JAPANESE LOSS. St. Petersburg, May 29. The St. Peters burg telegraph agency have received tho following from Shanghai: "News has been received here that seven Japanese ships, two of which were ar mored, and four Russian ships have been sunk. It Is confidently believed here that the Japanese are awaiting the publication of Vice-Admiral Rojestvensky's des patches from Vladivostok before admit ting the extent of their own losses." RUSSIANS SHOW WHITE FLAG. London, May JO. The Toklo correspon dent of tho Daily Telegraph ays a litis sinn warship has arrived off I warn! on the t-oiilhwot coast of Japan and hoisted Hie white flag. The despatch m.s that 300 officers and men, incut ot whom arc wounded, are he-lug jisslstcd by the Jap anese Red Cross there. RUSSIA IS DISHEARTENED HcnllxcK That She Una Lost Mantery of the Sen Humiliated by the Eiue Hllh Which Japs Did It. St. Petersburg, May 30 1:53 a. m, After waiting vainly all day and evening for dliett news from tne scattered lemnants of Vlce-Adnilr.il Rojestvensky's destroy ed and beaten licet, the Russian admiralty at midnight no longer attempted to hold out against tlio overwhelming, evidence pouring In fruni all directions' that the fleet on which all their hopes were cen tered had suffered a greater dlsa.ster than did tho ouiblneil Trench and Span ish lleets at Trafalgar. More hitter even than defeat Is tho Japanese claim ol Ihe virtual annihila tion of tlio Russian licet with prac tically no loss on their sldi, and many officers cling doggedly to tho belief that Vice-Admlral Togo niusl have suffered heavily. With every ship of Rear Admiral Neho gntoff'B reinforcing division either -ent to the bottom or foiced to stilleo its ll ig and only six of Reijestvcnsky's original 10 righting ships absent from the list of tlio vessels sunk or captured and with the Japanese pursuit still continuing, no niiMil authority has the temerity to dream that Russia can again attempt to wrest the mastery of the sea from Japan In tho present wnr. The captured warships alone will fur nish Japan with rcady-mado reinforce ments which will lx) more than a match for the fourth Pacific squadron, now about to sail from Cronstadt, EMPEROR BREAKS DOW N AND WEEPS. The Emperor was completely nr-st rated by the news and according to rcportt he lut'ke down nnd wept. Tho effect of the disaster will bo a tor title blow to the government. The fu tility of trying to stagurr on on lanti is everywhere recognized and thu cry foi "peace ot any price" Is sure to be ralstd. This tlmo It Is believed tho government cannot resist such i cry. Indeed, the ladlcnl libcialH pre npnnlv rejoicing in 1 1 I . hour nt their country's humiliation. They declare that tho disaster means peace, una a coiutUutlou uud that, law deaths of thousands of thelt fallow countrymen nnd the loss of over f. bun dled million dollars worth of warships is not too big a price to pay. The frlendi of peace In tho go.rnir.cnt are already reproaching the war party with forcing the Issue between logo and Roi stvenskj. When tlio fleet nppeaied In the Btralls of Malacca they tried vain ly to persuade the Kmperor that the time was opportune for tho oprnlng jf peace tiesotinllonn lint the wnr ptt-ly con vinced his mlrsty and Rojestvensky, that the honor of the navy Insisted thai tho fleet should lie r.iven n chance lo re trieve the disasters suffered on land, Diplomatists entertain no doubt that Ihe belligerent faction will continue to urge, that the war bo fought to the bitter end, but the friends of Russia abroad and es pecially France, are now bringing ever whelming arguments to bear In favor ot peace, M. DKI.CASSE MAY NEGOTIATE. Tho Asroclatcd Press has excellent rea son to believe that tlio Russian govern ment In this crisis will turn to M. Del casse. the French foreign minister In whose ability and whose loyalty as litis- ala's friend tho Emperor and his ministers huvc Implicit confidence. Some time ago it appeared likely that I'resldent Hooso- veil would play n big rolo in the praco negotiations but now his share Is apt to be determined by M. Delcnsso'a decision, lie may consider it wise to place the mat ter In President Roosevelt's hands. The war party will Insist now as they .11,1 i.rier ihe battle of Mukden that Peace 1 u imnn..iMn mi tb,. be.l nf defeat. The ' members of this faction are already pro claiming that the naval disaster In no wise ulteis the situation on land, Lieut. -(Jen. l.lnevltcli having prepared his plans as if the fleet did not exist. WITHHOLDING TUB NEWS. The censorship is taking tho position that It is improper to accept the Jap anese reports In the absence of official news and has forbidden the publication of foreign despatches giving details of the defeat. Nevertheless news of the niagnlture of the disaster spread like wlldllre throughout the city and the main facts were embellished In picturesque de tail. The admiralty Is without reports of the defeat. Private advices are said to have readied the city from Vladivostok, ac cording to which Rojestvensky Is alive but that he had a narrow escape. He Is said to have transferred his Hag from the Knlaz Souvaroff to one of tho battle ships subsequently sunk and that he was wounded and picked up by a torpedo boat. A largo portion of the officers nnd sailors of the fleet were residents of St. Petersburg nnd evidences of expectant grief are seen on every hand. Wivs and families are besieging the admiralty and are visiting the churches to pray for the escape of their loved ones. Many of the people of St. Peters burg refuse absolutely to credit the news from Toklo and are clutching at tho belief that perhaps It Is not offi cial. GOVERNMENT IN FEAR. Tho government undoubtedly fears tho effect of the news of the disaster upon the country, ns evidence of which Governor-General Trepoft has taken personal charge of the censorship in St. Petersburg. Pcaco demonstrations arc generally expected though pending the decision of the government with regard to the opening of negotiations, it Is impossi ble to predict what stand the antl govcrnmcnt forces may take. AN OFFICIAL REPORT The .Inpnneae Victory Confirmed Over n.OOO Prisoners Taken Engage ment Still In Progress. Washington, May 29. The following ofll cial report from Toklo was received at the Japanese legation to-day: "Toklo, May 29.

Steel Atchisron and Union Pacific, mailed frte upon ap plication, 1 9 Congress St. Boston 32 Broadway Naw York officer who Is known na one of tho best posted officers In Waehlngton on naval 'engagements, the latter s,uld: "In attacking with Ills torpedo flotilla. after sundown Togo Is pursuing the policy which he has followed from the outset. He has never attacked with his torpedo craft except at night. There Is nothing In the despatch to show that this attack Inflicted nny damage on the Russian "mips, inougn in an ih uummiiy u nan a most disastrous effect on the moralo of tho personnel. It Is evident that tho straits wero not held, for somn of the Russian bhlps were far to the north ward when sunk and others are yet un accounted for. The group of vessels attacked on the l.lancoiirt Rocks were the laggards of tho Meet and the presence nmong them of the Orel would seem to Indicate that this swift ship had been badly damaged. Th" fact that these ships surrendered would inrllentr. Hint, thev were surrounded bv tlx. m.iln division of Toko's fleet and If this were true Rojestvensky with tho ,.ih-r tlni which escaned -must have gained considerable headway tothc north- ward. In all probability the attack of the Japanese was at close range, for at the pome , ...u "-"" " ",,- occurred tho channel is not more than 10 miles wide. The nttnek of tho main force on the 2Sth upon the group of ships oft Llnncnurt Rocks shows that mis group ot vessels was making toward tho Japanese coast. WHV WERE SO MANY CAirOUT. "What Is most difficult to explain is the capture of jo many vessels. The Hnkliig or some of the larger and more row erf ul ships mnv bo explaired by the opening of the valves of the shirs before they were fought to a finish. The fact that so many pi Honers trc takn would Indicate that in some cases tho ships were abandoned before they were com' pletcly disabled. Certainly gunfire could not have surk the larger battleships withoi't the destruction of nearly evcty man on board. "It probably will be several days be fore tho full details are known or even enough to estimate tho final re suit of tho engagement. Thus far the reports show a grc'at hut not a com plete victory for Admiral Togo. Des truction or capture of Rojestvcnsky'3 flagship and other largo ships It ae eompllshed by the. pursuing Japanese fleet will give to Adm.ial Togo the most complete and sweeping; victory of mo-1 dern times."

ATLANTIC WINS Has Reached Its Goal Across the Ocean without a Compe titor Near. AVERAGE SPEED 10 1-2 KNOTS Record Sail for One Day Wan 341 Kaota Believed Thla Deata All Recorda Cnpt. Bare Says They Had Favorable Winds All the Way. The Lizard, Eng., May 39. The Atlantic won tho International yacht race, arriv ing here at 9:18 p. m. The Atlantic passed Wolf rock with every stitch of salt set. Her spinnaker was rigged to starboard and the Amerl- enn ensign was at her peak. Shortly aft imards the wind dropped and the spin linker was taken In. Captain Parr was hailed by the cor respondent's boat He Mild the Atlantic had made an average speed ot ten nnd a half knots since leaving Sandy Hook. As th3 Atlantic heeled her hull showeet rust but there was no sign of sea weed. Tho Atlantic was flying the Interna tional code letters "IC S It H." The wind continued to lighten and the yacht was unable to finish before darkness set In. Shortly before tho Atlantic reached mo marie, tnn wind leu inmost 10 a. calm and the tide turned against her. Crowds or people lined tno etirrs Watching tho yacht endeavoring to make the mark with all sails set. CROSSED THE MARK AT 9:15. 'Ihe Atlantic passed the line south of The Lizard lighthouse at !:1S p. m. when a gun was fired from the German miser pfell, the stake boat which arrived early lr- the evening, rockets being sent up from Lloyd's signal station and fog horns blown at the light house. The Atlantic proceeded for Cowes l,y way ot Southampton, Intent on bo.iting the record. After passing Scllly tho Atlantic was becalmed and had 1- hours 10 drift. At the Lizard she met a tre mendous swell nnd for some time drifted backwards and forwards. Captain Hum and Wilson Marshall, the owner of the Atantic, agreed that they had made a splendid passage with out a single mishap, only experiencing one strong gale, through which the boat rode admirably. The record sail for one day was "11 knots which Mr. Marshall believes beats anything heretofore achieved. This was made May 21. On May 23 the yacht made. :SL' knots, on May l(i, 19 knots; on May 27, m knots, and on May 28, 213 ktiotn. The Atlantic reached Bishop rock light house (southwest of the main group of the Fellly Isles) May 23, having accom j.Uslicd the passage to that point In 11 days. 1G hours and 22 minutes, with an average of ten nnd a half knots per hour. Lord Lonsdale was aboard the Pfell when tho Atlantic was aproachlng the mark. Captain Barr wis seen lean ing over the port rail of the yacht smoking a cigar. When asked what he thought of the Atlantic, the captain said: 'It amounts to this I've got the best yacht afloat. Next we lind good leading breezes, practically moderate southwest winds, all the way. Then the crow worked nobly, and you couldn't tind a better set of tcllows afloat. '1 have been fortunate. Just had tho wind that suited me, and the wind the Atlantic was built for. There has been no rougii weather ti speak of." When asked about the other yachts, Captain Burr replied: "Pon my soul, I cannot tell you any thing about them, since we passed the Hamburg the morning after the start. Tell everybody we are more than sat- Isned with having won a fine race. I maoo up mj mind that wo should win ADDISON COUNTY COURT.

And bring them up to fifteen score- Three hundred eggs! They'll surely bring. When they hatch out In tlmo of spring, (Allowing what must not ho forgotten.
