is Reported to Be Ex
HEAVY BOMBARDMENT BY JAPS.
lhd Russian Guns Are Wearing Out
and Their Ammunition Is Be
coming: Very Scarce.
Reports Received That the Japanese
Have Suddenly Advanced in the
Direction of Mukden Army
Washington, Nov. 18. Consul Gen
eral Fowler Thursday cabled the state
department from Chefoo that the sit
uation at Fort Arthur is extremely
critical, the outer forts having fallen
into the possession of the Japanese.
He also states that three Japanese tor
pedo boat destroyers are lying outside
of Chefoo harbor and that the Rus
elan crew of the torpedo boat destroy
er are transferring their arms and sup
plies to a Chinese cruiser which is
posted In front of the Russian con
sulate. ' ,
London, Nov. 18. The fact that the
Russian torpedo boat destroyer Ras
toropny, which arrived at Chefoo Wed
nesday, left Port Arthur much later
than the date of Gen. Stoessql's pub
lished report, which relates nothing
later than November 3, Is regarded as
significant. Apparently, however, To

as is contained In the report of Amer
ican Consul General Fowler at Che
foo, which was transmitted to the
state" department at Washington on
Nightly Sorties Made.
Special dispatches from Tlen-Tsin
report a heavy bombardment of Port
Arthur-as late as November 12, and
nightly sorties by small pnrtles of Rus
sians, who lose privately by bayonet
flghta. These reports give no reliable
details, but concur In statements that
guns are wearing out and that the
Russian ammunition is becoming
scarce. The Dally Telegraph's Tien
Tsin correspondent says he has receiv
ed a report that the Japanese have
suddenly advanced In the direction of
Mukden, from which place they are
now only 12 miles distant.
Mukden, Nov. 12. It Is reported
that 30,000 Japanese troops have been
landed at New Chwang and 30,000 oth

house In an effort to capture the
youth. Pollworth used a shotgun and
a. revolver to keep the crowd from
forcing an entrance to the house. All
Borts of schemes were resorted to to
reach Pollworth, but each attempt was
futile, as the youth threatened to
shoot any one who came within a
hundred yards of the place. It was

The case has been pending for sev

by the representatives of the Geisha
girls to induce the government author
ities to permit them to remain in this
country. It is said that on the state
ment of facts set out In Inspector

and thirty-two Chinamen who have
been connected with a World's fair
concession since the opening of the

railroad on their way to San Francis
co, where they will sail for China.
They were admitted to the United
States under bond and Bertilllon
measurements were taken of each
member of the party. In one of the
cars accommodations were reserved
for 14 Geisha girls, who had also been
filling an engagement at the World's

the carriage. Just previous to the de
portation of the Chinamen an effort
was made to prevent them being ta
ken away from St. LouIb by habeas

United States court, but the deputy
served it upon the wrong-Immigration
Inspector, and before the mistake was
discovered the train bearing the Chi
namen ami their guards had departed.

HOT FIGHT IN A, F, OF L, MEETING,
Ihe Question, After a Sharp Debate,
Was Referred to Committee on
Local and Federated Bodies.
The Basic Principle of the Whole Dis
pute Rested on a Question of
Trade Jurisdiction A Limit
Sjet on Speeches.
San Francisco, Nov. 18. The Chi
cago Federation fight was threshed
out on the floor of the convention in
the afternoon session of the American
Federation of Labor Thursday, but
after a hot and acrimonious debate
lasting two hours and a half the mat
ter was finally referred to the com
mittee on local and federated bodies,
with Instructions that a report bo ren
dered at the earllset possible moment.
Delegate Doll made an Impassioned
speech In behalf of the federation.
The leader seemed disposed to side
track the question, John Mitchell, who
occupied the chair In place of Presi
dent Gompers, saying he would con
sider any motion to refer or defer the
The Point at Issue.
The point at issue rested upon the
refusal of the Chicago Federation to
comply with the demand of the Amer
ican Federation to expel two local
Chicago unions. Tho basic principle
Df the whole dispute rested on a ques
tion of trade jurisdiction. The United
Plumbers' Association of America
claimed jurisdiction over the two Chi
cago unions In question, which were
not affiliated with tho national body.
They were upheld by the executive
council of the American Federation of
Labor, but the Chicago Federation per
sisted in disregarding the ruling and
allowed two seceding unions to afilli
ute with the central body. The Chi
cago Federation was thereupon expell
ed from the national body until such a
time as It saw fit to comply with the
edict of the executive council.
No New Evidence Allowed.
The fight on the proposition was the
hottest that yet has been waged on the
floor. The Chicago delegates stated
that the members of the executive
council of the American Federation of
Labor had refused to permit them to
introduce new evidence in the case,
and each member of the council In
turn took the floor and as decidedly
stated .that such was not the case. The
Question thorefoie resolved Into one of
veracity. The Chicago delegates were
desirous of making a motion to the
effect that the convention appoint a
special committee to journey to Chica
go as soon as possible after the final
adjournment of the convention and
fctudy the situation at first hand. In
the Interim they desired that William
Schardt, president of the Chicago Fed
eration and delegate of that body to
the present convention, bo seated.
This was designated by the opposition
ns a mere subterfuge and cheap polit
ical trick and was overruled. The de
bate was finally stopped by a motion,
carried by a bare majority, setting 'l0
o'clock as a limit, alter which no
speeches on the question could be de
FURNITURE DRIVERS STRIKE.
In the Chicago Labor
Chicago, Nov. 18. If the determina
tion of the leaders in the strike of the
furniture teamsters' strike is carried
out, one of the bitterest fights that has
taken place In recent years in the lo
cal labor world Is predicted. Thurs
day 23 teamsters went out, 120 more
have been called out and other team
sters may bo called out for a sympa
thetic strike. Tho strike opened on
Thursday with rioting and fighting in
the streets and more trouble Is pre
dicted, as the furniture dealers say
that they will continue to make deliv
eries with non-union drivers, and It Is
expected that tho wagons will bo at
tacked as soon as they appear in tho
streets, even though guarded by thb
police. Secretary A. J. Reed, of tho
Teamsters Joint union, said Thursday
night: "All the teamsters who aro
now out, and who will bo called out,
are teamsters working for members of
tho Chicago Employers' association,
but unless wo obtain our demands,
which wo believe aro Just, tho strike
will be carried beyond members of the
Chicago Employers' association, nnd is
likely to tako In many labor organiza
tions." Advance In Price Ordered.
