THE EVENING BULLETIN VOLUME XXIII. MAYSVILLE, KY., TUESDAY, NOVEMBER 1, 1904. NUMBER 293 Hi lii -? W' SOpOFMUKDEN. Everything: Indicates That Both Armies Are lieady For a Re-' jsumption of Hostilities. THE JAPS LARGELY REINFORCED, Second Battle on the Shakhe River Will Prove Bigger ami More Seri ous Than the First. On Ntght of October 30 Japanese At tacked the Russian Entrench ments East of Sinchinpu, But Were Repulsed. St. Petersburg, Nov. 1. Everything Indicates that both the Japanese and Russian armies south of Mukden are ready for a resumption of hostilities, if Indeed fighting has not already be gun. Gen. Kuropatkin reports that the Japanese have received reinforce ments from the south and Feng Wang Cheng. Their concentration seems to have been accomplished and they are retidy to resume the offensive both oast and west of the railroad. There Is no official estimate of the strength of the Japanese reinforcements, but correspondents place it at from 40,000 to 60,000. It is believed that the Jap anese force has been very largely aug mented both from Port Arthur, where an engineering siege has been begun, and Japan, from whence it is said ev ery available is drafted. It seems to be assured that the Jap anese will be able to meet Gen. Kuro patkin on almost if not quite an equal numerical footing. The mere fact that they are again threatening a double flanking movement indicates Field Marshal Oyama's confidence in the ef ficiency of the foce at his disposal. It is believed here that the second battle on the Shakhe river will prove to be as much bigger and more serious than the first, as the first was more seri ous than the battle of Llao Yang. Gen. Kuropatkin Is confronted by an ex ceedingly difficult problem. He Is pit ted against a Japanese force stronger oven despite its recent losses than that first opposing his south advance. If Kuropatkin now succeeds in check ing or even breaking the Japanese formation it will open large possibili ties for the brief remainder of the present year's campaign. On the oth er hand, a Russian reverse would ren der the position exceedingly critical. Dispatches indicate the resumption of fighting on both extremities of the Russian front The night of October 30 the Japanese attacked the Russian entrenchments east of Sinchinpu, but were repulsed though the bombard ment continued throughout the night. A Japanese advance has also begun against the Russian positions at Tun ganon, a mile and a half north of Bentslaputze, where they encountered a heavy Russian fire. Thus it appears that the Japanese are becoming ag gresive along the whole front, from Bentsiaputze on the extreme east to Sinchinjw, which is west of the Shak he river, where that stream bends south after crossing the railroad. This probably constitutes the extreme Rus sian west, making the battle front about the same as when Gen. Kuro patkin began his southern movement. ARBITRATION TREATY.

ASUCCESSFULTRIP Knabenshue Made a Second Trial of the Airship California Ar row at St. Louis. CIRCLED IN EVERY DIRECTION. After Making: Heading' Against Moder ate Wind ile Landed at the Place Prom Which He Started. The Daring Aeronaut Remained in tho Air 2,000 Feet Above the Earth For 26 Minutes The Ma chine Is Dirigible. St. Louis, Nov. 1. After circling In every direction at a height of 2,000 feet above the cascades, in sight of thousands of cheering, enthusiastic spectators on the World's fair grounds, Roy Knabenshue, of Toledo, O., in command of the Baldwin airship, Mon day returned to the place from which he had started over the same course that he had come, covering the three miles and a half of the round trip un der his own power and demonstrating the claims of the inventor, Capt. Thos. S. Baldwin, of San Francisco, that the "California Arrow" is not only dirigi ble, but that it can 'make headway against a moderate breeze. Knabenshue started from the aero nautic concourse at 3:37 p. m. and returned after his remarkable flight at 4:05 p. m. On the return trip the alr Bhip sailed slowly over the exact spot from which it had risen, 26 minutes previously, and glided about 100 feet further west where it settled grace fully to the ground. The descent of the Arrow was the signal for a demonstration the equal of which has not been seen since the wheels of the World's fair started last April In response to the pressure on a key by President Roosevelt. Doz ens of eager hands were upstretched to grasp the frame of the airship and the flying machine, with Its daring navigator, were carried around the concourse upon the shoulders of shout ing men. Hats were thrown in the air and when Knabenshue called for three cheers for his home town, they were given with a will and another round followed for Knabenshue and Baldwin. At thie Btart the Arrow rose slowly and easily, Its prow directed toward the west. When at a height of about 25 feet Knabenshue turned the rudder and the aerial craft, answering to Its helm, pointed south and continued its flight without interruption. Knabenshue at that time was not high enough to clear the aeronautic fence and as he rapidly approached it, the crowd held Its breath, fearing that the craft would be dashed against the barricade and the aeronaut badly in jured, or perhaps killed. The young man who clung to the frail support that affords the naviga tor of the California Arrow a preca rious foothold, did not share the anx iety of the spectatois. Waving his cap to assure those who were follow ing his every move, Knabenshue moved toward the rear of the airship. The Arrow pointed Its prow upward and answering the pull of the pro peller. soared lightly above the fence and rapidly gained an altitude oi about 1,000 feet. After proceeding about tialf to three quarters of a mile westward, Knaben shue turned the airship about and again passed over the concourse, at the same time increasing altitude un til he was about 2,000 feet above the earth. Sailing first to tho northeast and then to the southeast, occasionally making complete turns, Knabenshue continued in a generally easterly direc tion until over the cascades, the center of the World's fair grounds, and about a mile and a half in a direct line from the point of starting. At about that time the barely per coptlble breeze that had been blowing from the northwest increased to about eight miles an hour and veered to tho north. In order to return to the starting point It was necessary for Knabenshue to breast this breeze. It could bo seen that his first effort to turn the airship from a course before tho wind waB un successful and fearB were expressed that KnabonBhue could not completo the demonstration by returning to tho concourse. Ho attempted several times to turn to the left and then suddenly swung tho rudder sharply in the other direc tion and the Arrow came into the wind, staggered a moment, and then, gaining power, camo on toward the concourse at a speed that caused the spectators to cheor and toss their hats Into the air. Tho demonstration was observed by Knabenshue who leaned far out and waved an empty ballast bag. We'd like to go fishing Just once when only tho HJLtlo fish got away. HORRIFYING SPECTACLE.

THE LIGHTWEIGHTS Britt Lost the Championship of the World in His Fight With Gans. FOULED HIM IN FIFTH ROUND, Had Sent His Opponent to His Knees, Then Losing: His Head Gave . Him a Punch. It Looked FronV the Start That Britt Would Win, He Actually Outbox- ing Gans and Landing Blow After Blow. San Francisco, Nov. L Jimmy Britt, of California, lost the light weight championship of the world Monday night when he fouled Joe Gans. He had sent Gans to his knees in the fifth round and then losing his head gave him a vicious punch and Referee Graney promptly awarded the decision to Gans on a foul. The same thing had happened In the fourth round. Gans had dropped to his knees to escape a blow that did not land. Britt struck at him but Graney very promptly recognized the foul fighting. It looked almost from the start as If it were Britt's fight. He actually out boxed Gans and landed blow after blow. In the fourth round it was ap parent that Gans was scared and bar ring a foul the fight was Britt's to a certainty. While no excuse can be made for Britt losing his head, it certainly seemed that Gans invited a foul. The decision was a great shock to the big gest crowd that ever filled the pavil ion, but fair-minded men agreed that Graney's judgment was just. Britt showed marvelous strength and quick ness. He went at Gans like a bull-terrier, landing body blows alternating with swings on the Jaw. During the first three rounds Gans appeared cool and confident and fairly strong. He appeared to be feeling Britt out, but at the end of the third and the begin ning of the fourth when Britt com menced to fight more viciously Gans weakened perceptibly. He landed a few times on Britt, but the little white boy paid no attention to the colored man's light taps and every time he was hit bore in more,' viciously than ever. There Is no doubt In the minds of the majority of those present that in another contest at the same weights Britt would defeat Gans easily. The fight demonstrated that Britt Is a wonder in his class. He Is a clever boxer, quick as a cat and a hard hit ter. With the addition of having a bull dog grit that makes him fight all the harder when he is being punished. Gans and his followers were highly delighted at the decision and had no , complaint coming. After the fight, when Britt had re covered his temper, he apologized to Graney and said: "What could I do when a man fell every time when It was unnecessary? I am sorry I hit him while on his knees but I could not help It." The fifth round' lasted but 3S seconds when the foul was de clared. GUILTY OF WHJTECAPPING.
