JBelivery of Russian Prisoners at Port
Arthur Completed—'Number Is
Over 24,000—Lieut. Gen.
Pock Not Killed.
London, Jan. 9.—It is expected at
St. Petersburg that the czar will order
Kuropatkin to take the offensive im
mediately before Nogi's veterans can
join the Japanese forces on the
8hakhe, and at any expense to gain
some success to offset the effect of the
loss of Port Arthur upon the Russian
people. Such instructions will place
Kuropatkin in a most difficult posi
tion. The severity of the winter in
•orthern Manchuria makes extensive
military operation next to impossible,
even with troops having the best
equipment. It is known that the Rus
sian army is suffering great depriva
tion of such necessaries as ooots and
•vercoats, owing to the wholesale
robberies of supplies, and a battle
fought solely for political reasons
•would be with advantage strongly on
the side of the Japanese.
Effect of Port Arthur's Fall.
Europe still awaits some decisive
indication as to what will be the im
mediate effect of the fall of Port Ar
thur. This indication can come only
from St Petersburg. It is now gen
erally recognized that Japan's great
victory can make for peace only in
ease Russia's internal crisis makes
Delivery of Prisoners Completed.
Washington, Jan. 9.—The Japanese
legation received the following cable
gram from the foreign office at Tokio
«nder date of Sunaay. "Gen. Nogi on
Sunday reports delivery of Russian pris
oners under capitulation was completed
«n Saturday. The total of the prisoners
were 878 officers and 23,491 men, whereof
441 officers and 229 orderlies gave parole
eo far. Gen. Snurnotf, Gen. Fock, Gen.
Gorbatovsky and Admiral Willmann
preferred to be sent to Japan as pris
oners, while Stoessel will leave Dalny
for home on the 12th of January."
Will Go to Japan.
Headquarters Japanese Army at Port
Arthur, via Fusan, Jan 9.—Lieut. Gens.
Fock and Smirnoff have decided to go to
Japan as prisoners of war Gen. Smir*
jioff was in command of the rorts at Port
Arthur and Gen Fock commanded the
fourth division of the army there. Gen.
Pock says he will drill his men in Japan.
Fifty per cent, of the Russian officers
will go to Japan and share with their
men the fate oi prisoners of war There
are five Russian admirals at Port Ar
thur, one of whom will go to Japan.
Among the admirals is a prince.
Reports previously received were to
the effect that both Lieut. Gens. Fock
and Smirnoff had been killed at Port
Arthur. On January 2 a St Peters
burg dispatch denied that Fock had
been killed, but admitted that he had
been wounded. A dispatch received
from Mukden January 7 said that
while the death ot Fock had not been
published, it had for six weeks been
accepted there as a fact. The report

Will Establish Naval Station.
Tokio, Jan 9.—The Japanese intend
to establish a naval station at Port
Arthur Vice Admiral Y. Shibayama
will probably be placed in charge of
it. The military administration at
Port Arthur will retain only a small
garrison as soon as the prisoners are
withdrawn and order is restored. The
fleet is busily engaged clearing
mines, but owing to their great num
ber navigation will be unsafe for a
Song time Only government craft will
be allowed to enter the harbor. It is
probable that Dalny will soon be
•pened up to neutrals.
St. Petersburg, Jan. 9.—Gen Kuro
patkin reports the frustration of a
Japanese attempt to surprise his cen
ter front the night of January 6, and
the bayonettifg of 21 Japanese the
might of January 3 by a cavalry recon
maissance in the valley of the Taitse
river, the direction of Sianchan.
Headquarters of the Third Japanese
Army, Jan. 9, via Fusan.—The Russian
prisoners, while waiting at Changking
tsu, a railway station for Dalny, cele
brated the approach of the new year.
Religious services were held Sunday
morning at ten o'clock, and the assem
blage of prisoners was addressed by a
Russian priest in fjull canonical dress.
After the services there was music
and dancing on the open ground in
front of the station. The eight-year
old daughter of a Russian officer is
among the prisoners.
London, Jan 9—A dispatch to the
Japanese legation from Tokio, in con
firming the announcement of the rais
ing of the blockade of the Liaotung
peninsula, adds: "For the present,
however, no ships except those in the
Japanese government service will be al
lowed to enter Port Arthur."
Still Hope for Success.
Tokio, Jan. 9.—In naval circles here
the recall of the Russian second Pacific
squadron is not regarded as a sign that
Russia does not hope for final success
on the seas. It is considered that the
authorities at St. Petersburg have re
alized the improbability of the second
Pacific squadron alone defeating Vice
Admiral Togo and has recalled it to
Await reenforcements and to fnstfecr
into its officers and men preparatory!
to a supreme effort for the mastery. A
navel officer said to a press correspond
ent: "Japan has confidently awaited
the arrival of the second Pacific squad
ron of the Russian navy in the far east.
It would have been a splendid fight.
Now we must prepare for the futile,
of which we are not afraid."
Celebrate with Bombardment.
£*Gen. Oku's Headquarters, via Fusan,
Jan. 9.—The Russians, celebrating
their Christmas eve, began a heavy
rifle fire at ten o'clock Friday evening
opposite Linihimpu. Their artillery
joined at 11 o'clock, and kept up two
hours of the hardest firing known since
the Shakhe river was reached, spread
ing along the whole front of Gen. Oku's
army. The Japanese sustained no dam
age and refused to reply. They simply
moved into their trenches, preparing to
repulse an expected attack, which was
not attempted. There were no casual
ties among the Japanese troops.
Little Sign of Peace.
St., Petersburg, Jan. 9.—The confer
ences which Emperor Nicholas has been
holding with members of the council of
the empire, M. Witte and other minis
ters and advisors on the internal and
external situation have not yet been con
cluded, but nothing has occurred which
would indicate that the government is
prepared to depart from its present pro
gramme of continuing the war to the
bitter end. Nevertheless, talk of peace
was heard Sunday in many quarters, the
foundation for it being ascribed to For
eign Minister Lamsdorff's alleged posi
tion in favor of such a course on the
ground that, aside from the humiliation
to military prestige involved, it would
only mean the relinquishment of Man
churia, to which Russia already is for
mally pledged. There is no confirma
tion of this statement of Count Lams
dorff's position beyond the general
knowledge that he always has belonged
to the peace party. It is quite probable
that the peace talk gossip has been pro
duced by the arrival of foreign papers,
as it receives no encouragement re
sponsible quarters here.
No Proposals from Japan.
The belief whjch existed exception
ally well informed diplomatic circles
that Japan would follow the fall of Port
Arthur with moderate peace proposi
tions has not been realized. Up to the
present time nothing has reached the
government either through the United
States or other channels. Diplomats
here cannot figure out the general lines
of a treaty at this juncture which both
the belligerents could accept, but realize
that if Japan makes any sort of offer,
unless it is rejected outright, as not en
tertainable, negotiations would be
opened, and negotiations once entered
upon, friends of both parties could use
their good offices to bring about terms.
This is the only hope for a termination
of the war which diplomats can see.
A SUDDEN CALL.
Heart Failure Causes Death of Former
Governor Lowndes, of
Cumberland, Md, Jan. 9.—The sud
den death at his home in this city Sun
day of former Gov. Lloyd Lowndes
cast a pall of gloom over the commu
nity. There had been no indications
of illness, and Mr. Lowndes appeared
to be in his usual good health and
spirits when he arose in the morning.
He left his office in the Second nation
al bank late Saturday afternoon, went
to his home and after dinner spent
several hours in the preparation of an
address to be delivered here at Bishop
Paret's twentieth aniversary as bishop
of the Maryland diocese of the Prot
estant Episcopal church. He then
awaited the arrival from Clarksburg,
W. Va., of his son, Richard T.
Lowndes, who did not reach the house
until past midnight The governor re
tired at about one a He arose at
8:30, took a bath and began to dress
preparatory to attending church ser
vices. A sudden fall attracted the at
tention of Mrs. Lowndes, who was in
the room. She summoned assistance,
and the unconscious form was placed
upon the bed. Physicians were hastily
summoned and were quickly at the
bedside, but death had ensued before
their arrival. Death was due to heart

*«•*, Settlement But "Ei-^^
Denver, Jan. 9.—Alva Adams is the
choice of the people of Colorado for
governor, and he will be inaugurated
Tuesday- This was announced shortly
before midnight Saturday night, at the
conclusion af the canvass of the vote
of the last election by the legislature
in joint session. The returns showed
that Adams had a majority over Pea
body of 9,774. A whirlwind of cheers
greeted the decision that brought to
an end the bitter contest that has last
ed almost two months. The announce
ment that all the other republican can
didates for state offices had been elect
ed caused no excitement, for the fact
was known before.
Peabody May Not Contest.
Under the terms of the compromise
agreement reached by the various fac
tions in the legislature earlier in the
day, Gov. Peabody is to file no notice
of contest with the legislature until
after Mr. Adams is inaugurated. There
is some doubt, indeed, whether Gov.
Peabody will undertake a contest. It
was a day given over to secret cau
cuses, to conferences, to proposition
and counter-proposition. It finally was
agreed at five o'clock that the vote
should be canvassed, that Alva Adams
should be declared governor, and that
no contest should be made for any
office until after his inauguration at
ten o'clock Tuesday morning.
Throughout the entire struggle for
the governorship the chief aim of both
democrats and republicans las been
to secure the appointment of two new
judges to the supreme court. The
question of whether Peabody or
Adams sat in the governor's chair was
a secondary matter. The Wolcott re
publicans were insistent in their de
mand that they be recognized in the
appointment of the judges, and it was
finally agreed that the appointees
should be George W. Bailey of Fort
Collins and L. M. Goddard of Denver.
Peabody in a Rage.
When the republican leaders called
upon Gov. Peabody to inform him of
the conclusions they had reached and
to tell him that his only hope of a
second term lay through a contest in
the republican legislature they were
met by a wrathful and indignant man.
He refused to accede to their wishes,
and for four hours his friends labored
with him. It was only the pleadings
of some of his closest friends that in
duced him at last to agree to the plan
proposed and to send the names of
Bailey and Goddard to the senate for
Lose on Court Decision.
The Peabody men refused to give
way until the supreme court refused
to declare legal the proceedings of Fri
day. It would'not declare them ille
gal,* simply declining to pass on the
matter. With the joint session not
declared legal, all things that came
from it were in the same position, and
the Peabody men then agreed to com
At seven o'clock all things were
settled, even to the fact that Lieut.
Gov. Haggoft should preside over the
joint session except while the canvass
was in progress, when he would give
way to Speaker Dickson.
Session Called to Order.
The senators filed into the house,
with Lieut. Gov. Haggott leading. The
lieutenant governor mounted the
speaker's rostrum, where Speaker
Dickson was awaiting him. Tne men
eyed each other for a second, and then
Haggott, with a laugh, extended his
hand and it was grasped cordially
The speaker stepped back, and the
lieutenant governor call the session to
order. He announced the purpose of
the joint session to be the canvassing
of the vote, and then gave way to the
speaker. Representative Griffith
moved a recommendation of the ac
tion taken Friday, the resolution cre
ating the committee of 15 was laid on
the table, and that body passed out of
existence. The canvass of thv vote
then began. I

O'Connell, a well known Indiana, Mis
souri, Kansas and Montana pioneer
died here Saturday, aged 73 years. In
ante-bellum days in Missouri and Kan
sas he became the intimate and personal
friend of Thomas Ewing and Gen. W. T.
Sherman. He was wealthy.
Manila Editor Dead.
v^Knoxville, Tenn., Jan. 3. Capt. Wil
liam Rule, editor of the Knoxville Jour
nal and Tribune, Saturday received a
cablegram announcing the death of his
son, James F. Rule, editor of the Manila
American and Manila Town Topics
The remains will be brought here fot in.
One of the most puzzling cases of
professional""duty I ever had was that
of Philip Gray, whom I defended on
a charge of forgery. Before selecting a
line of defense I visited the prisoner
in his cell and asked him to tell me
whatever he knew that would tend to
establish his innocence. Cray was a
fine looking young fellow, about
twenty-fn years old, and with as lion*
est a look as I ever saw in any man's
eye. Judge, therefore, of my surprise
when, instead of complying with my
request, he asked me whether an at
torney was bound to sececy with re
speet to his client's admission of guilt,
and when I said that such was the
obligation he declared that he had com
mitted the forgery.
A celebrated British barrister, hav
ing been placed in a similar position,
referred the case to the judges, who
after deliberation told him that it was
proper he should defend his client,
though he should not state his own
belief in his innocence. I resolved to
act upon this advice myself and pro
ceeded with the defense.
Gray seemed indifferent to the out
come „at any rate, he would give me
no information to guide me in assist
ing him. Indeed, there was little to
bring forward, for all the incentive to
the crime was with the accused. The
forgery was the signature of a will
purporting to have been left by his
uncle, Peter Martin, leaving Philip
Gray all his property, a large estate.
There was, however, one weak point in
the evidence against the prisoner in
this: That two in three experts in chi
rography testified, and without know
ing each other's conclusions, that Phil
ip Gray had not written the signature
to the will. But the opinion of the two
experts who were of this opinion did
not count for much. They were with
out reputation in their calling and had
been summoned by me. The expert
who declared that the accused hid
committed the forgery was at the head
of his profession and had been sum
moned by the state.
The last day of the trial was an ex
citing one or, rather, a pathetic one.
The mother of the accused was in court
and the agony depicted on his face
was enough to move a heart of ada
mant. Indeed, the evidence against
my client was so strong, and I was so
weakened by the knowledge of his
guilt, that I came toward the end of
the trial to rely principally on the
presence of the mother and her effect
upon the jury. I spoke feelingly of
the misfortune under which the prison
er labored, that both of the witnesses
who had seen the testator sign the will
were dead, drawing a picture of the
delightful transition from one accused
of a crime to vindication if one or both
the witnesses should come into court.
I also pictured to the jury a noble life
blighted by a mistake. While I was
speaking the mother of the prisoner
was far more* visibly affected than the
jury, and when I sat down she went
out of the courtroom, sent for me and
confessed that she, in order to secure
the estate for the son, had forged the
Here was a new complication, but
it was a relief to me. Gray, to screen
his mother, had confessed the crime.
He, not his mother, was my client, and
I was placed in a new position by this
knowledge of his innocence. I did not
care to ask him if his mother's confes
sion was the truth, for I felt quite sure
that the same motive that had led him
to accuse himself -would lead him to
deny that she was guilty I went back
into the courtroom resolved to spare
no effort to save an innocent man, one
who was placing himself in his moth
er's stead, from punishment for a crime
he had not committed But here again
was a puzzle as to duty. Profession
ally I was bound to prove my client's
innocence if possible. By putting his
mother on the stand I could secure his
acquittal. I knew that he would be a
far greater sufferer if I adopted this
course than if he were convicted in her
stead. I made up my mind to do what
I could for him without compromising
his mother. Possibly I might save him
without resorting to this expedient.
I arose to the last summing up.
There was little to say in his defense
without accusing his mother, so I was
obliged to content myself with a con
tinued effort to wm the sympathy of
the jury. But on this I was clogged
by a knowledge that the woman for
whom I asked their indulgence was
herself guilty of the crime. As I pro
ceeded I saw that the twelve men
looking at me were convinced that I
did not feel what I said. I was lum
bering along hurriedly when there was
a stir beyond the rail. A man pushed
forward and asked to speak to the
prisoner's counsel. I paused in my
speech and ••vent to the rail.
"I'm Edmund D. Corwine," he said,
"one ot the witnesses to the will of
"Are you sure? You're supposed to
be dead." i***-^ Js^i* *"~J
"I can prove my identity and. am
ready to swear that Peter Martin sign
ed a will in my presence."
He did both, and the prisoner was
not only acquitted, but came into pos
session of a large fortune.
The explanation? Well, the man who
would have inherited the estate but
for the will worked up a case of for
gery against Gray.r^lGray's mother
had once told her son that his uncle's
estate should never go to the next of
kin, and Gray believed that she had
committed forgery for his sake. yHe
confessed to save her, and she con
fessed to save him. The witness who
finally set us all right had permitted
himself to be supposed to be dead in
order tp get away from a woman who
had been hounding him for blackmail.
At her death he returned, fortunately
