Agents at Work in St. Paul Se-
curing Americans to Serve
as Officers
Recruiting of officers for the new
Chinese Imperial Reform array has
started afresh, and the Minneapolis
headquarters of the movement, al
though the work is kept an intense se
cret, is known to be doing business,
holding out promises to young Amer
icans who have seized in either the
Philippine or Cuban wars.
It is about four months since the first
excitement was caused by the promises
of commissions in the army which is
said to be the desire of Sir Robert Hart
and the dowager empress of China.
For a time the movement seemed dor
mant and those who had been offered
commissions thought that it was dead.
But recently notifications have been re
ceived by those holding appointments
informing them that the transportation
from their homes to San Francisco will
be ready in a fqw weeks, and ordering
them to be prepared to join their com
mands at a few days' notice.
The Minneapolis end of the recruit
ing is said to be in charge of a young
man named Bates, who is doing busi
ness as an insurance agent. Bates has
been very quietly informing his men
in the Twin Cities that everything is
in readiness to sail, and that he is act
ing under instructions from the com
mandant of the American end, Edward
E. English, of Yankton, S. D.

information that the rank and pay of

and that officers might select the wing
of the service to their liking, provided
their previous experience fitted them
for commissions in certain depart-
ments. The officers, according to Mr.
English, are all to be Americans, and
the privates and non-commissioned
officers Chinese.

Japanese Right Flank—From Ad
vanced Station Russians Threaten
Entire Jap Line, Owing to Blunder
of Kuroki in Not Holding Key
Position in the Field
Simultaneously with Gen. Kuropatkm's announcement to
his army that the time had come for a forward movement
there comes news that the Russians have captured Bentsia
putze, one of the strategical points held by the Japanese.
The event did not precipitate a severe engagement, though
the Japanese are reported to have suffered a considerable loss,
the turning of their position having exposed them to a se
vere fire.
In his address to his army. Gen. Kuropatkin asserts that
the Russians have a force numerically superior' to that of the
Japanese and he predicts a telling victory for his soldiers.
The retirement of the Japanese on their* position at Liau
yang is construed as evidencing the desire of Field Marshal
Oyama to draw the Russians into an attack upon a strong de
fensive position.
The dry weather is favorable to military operations.
The fleet blockading Port Arthur is reported to be more
than usually alert watching for British ships which are plan
n rig to take supplies into the harbor.

fensive is supplemented tonight by the news that an offensive
movement has already been begun and that the Japanese
line has been broken at Bentsiaputze.
The Japanese occupied a front of about fifty-two miles,
stretching from Bentsiaputze on the east through Yentai and
across the railway to the banks of the Hun river on the west.
The Russian force has been moving south In close touch v\ ah
the Japanese advance, since Oct. 4.
The Japanese outposts were driven back in a set ies of
skirmishes and on Oct. 6 the Russians reoccupied the station
of Shakhe, fifteen miles south of Mukden, the railway battal

in order to facilitate the advance. Meanwhile Gen. Mitcheii-
