There Were 50,000 Russians There
Few Daye Ago—Japaneee Under
General Kurokl Attack Them—Other
Jap General, Oku Will Not Join
Attack Now.
St. Petersburg, June 28. —A rumor
is in circulation here to the effect that
the Russian forces have been defeat
ed at Tatchekiao and compelled to re
treat northward. At the war office it
is stated that no report of such action
has been received, but none of the of
ficials in charge would deny that such
a battle might have been fought.
It is known that there were fully
60,000 Russians at Tatchekiao last
Thursday, and that the entire Japanese
army under General Kurokl was mov
ing northward to attack them.
Liaoyang. June 27. —Tne second Jap
anese army, under General olcu, Is
withdrawing all along the line, having
apparently abandoned the intention of
effecting a juncture with General Kuro
ki's army.
The Japanese report of the loss of
three Russian ships at Port Arthur
has not been made public here, though
the authorities have allowed to be
printed a statement that the squad
ron had made a sortie, and also the
news of the loss of the Japanese tor
pedo boat destroyers. Some of the pa
pers have even commented with satis
faction on the prospect of the fight in
the open sea, where the merits dt the
two fleets will be fairly tested.
An official explanation of the sup
pression of the Japanese report is that
the admiralty Is unwilling to unneces
sarily alarm the public by the circula
tion of such statements, entirely on the
authority of the enemy and in tne ab
sence of definite advices from the
commander at Port Arthur. It Is also
suggested that there has been a fight
and that the Japanese have minimized
their own losses and magnified those
of the Russians with a view of effect
ing tbe new loan which It is understod
Japan Is negotiating.
Mine Version Advanced.
On the other hand, according to a
foreign naval attache, tbe admiralty
admitted that Rear Admiral Wltsoeft
(the naval commander at Port Arthur)
lost one battleship and two cruisers,
but in the absence of details there was
an inclination to believe that the ships
struck mines, the admiralty not be
lieving, in the face of the lessons
taught by the injuries to the Retvizan
and to the Czarevitch, that Admiral
Wltsoeft would have remained in tbe
outer roads at night, thus inviting the
dash by the Japanese destroyers.
In high court and army and naval
circles, where the report of the Port
Arthur affair has been freely circu
lated, the Japanese version is received
with considerable reserve.
The officials do not attempt to dis
guise the seriousness of and the far
reaching consequences which might re
sult from the loss of three of the Port
Arthur warships, but they profess to
be more Inclined to believe that the
vessels were lost In open fighting rath
er than as the result of a torpedo at
tack. Should this be the case, they
say, the Japanese could not have es
caped without material loss and the
crippling of one or two of their battle
ships, enough to assure command of
the sea to the Baltic squadron.
Fleets May Be United.
There is much speculation tonight
as to whether the Vladivostok squad-
Ron might not have gone out and per
haps be on the eve of Joining the Port
Arthur fleet. A telegram from Vladi
vostok, dated June 25, which has been
received here, does not mention the
squadron, but it is easily conceivable
that such mention might be suppressed
for strategic reasons.
A general tension is evident in the
city tonight. There are many rumors
afloat, and every one is realizing that
most important news may be expected
at any moment.
It is reported that a serious land
fight has taken place near Tatchekiao,
in which the Russians were defeated.
No confirmation of this report iB ob

Eupora, Miss., June 27. —Starling
Dunham, a negro, wanted on the
charge of criminal assault on the 14
year old daughter of John Wilson, a
white man, near Bellefontalne, two
weeks ago and attempting to criminal
ly assault three young ladies named
Dunn near this city, all during the
course of the same day, was hanged in
the public square here Sunday by a
mob. The noose was placed about the
negro's neck by the Utttle Wilson girl,
who positively Identified him as her
assailant. The negro was then placed
on the tiack of a black horse; at a
signal from the leader of the mob the
little Wilson girl led the horse from
under him.
Over 3000 persons, white and black,
witnessed the hanging. The lynching
was as orderly as a legal execution.
After being assured that the negro was
dead, the mob cut down the body and
turned it over to relatives for burial.
Dunham was captured Friday near
Vienna, Ala., after a running chase dur
ing which he was wounded twice. He
was brought here tonight by the sher
iff of this (Wilson) county and a large
mob met the train at the railroad sta
tion and an effort was made to gtit the
negro, but officers spirited him away
and carried him to jail at Walthall,
six miles from here, where the party
was again met by a mob of determined
men who said their Intention was to
burn Dunham.
The officers In charge of the negro
succeeded in prevailing upon the mob
to give up this Intention, but only after
promising to deliver the negro to the
mob this morning for execution. There
was a strong sentiment for burning,
but this was overcome and the lynch
ing took the form of a hanging.
Dunham stoutly maintained his inno
cence to the last and denied that he
bad ever seen the Wilson girl. He ad
mitted having visited Dunn's place,
but denied any bad motive. His last
remarks were made to 200 negroes
who were assembled about the place
of execution, Dunham telling them
never to go about a white man's house
when the women were at home atone.
The three Dunn sisters, the eldest of
whom is less than 18 years, witnessed
the lynching from a distance.
The lynching occurred before the
governor was apprised that Dunham
had been brought back to Mississippi.

Madrid.—What will probably prove

took place in the province of Tordel.
An express train, running at full speed
caught fire between the forward pas
senger and the luggage cars.
Before the engineer could be
fled the train was running on to
Entrambaquas river bridge and one
the couplings broke. All of the ca
were derailed and three of them fei
into the river, drowning all of the oc
cupants. Tnlrty dead have been tak
en from the train and 20 others froL
the river. It Is impossible at this tlmi
to even estimate the number who have
lost their lives.
The scenes at the wreck were of an
indescribable nature, many of those
who were killed being held pinned
down by wreckage until slowly roast
ed to death.
