XXVII.—NO. 285 STOESSEL SENDS UP MACEDONIAN Cltf MUST SURRENDER IF NOT RELIEVED SHORTLY Commander of the* Russians at Port Arthur Says All Will Be Over If He Does Not Receive Help by December—Kuropatkin Turns the Tables and the Japanese Retreat South LONDON Oct. 11. —The Post's Shanghai correspondent Bays it is stated that Lieut. Gen. Stoessel has reported that unless he is relieved before December he must surrender. RUSSIANS TURNING THE TABLES ST. PETERSBURG, Oct. 11. —A battle upon which the fate of this year's campaign in Manchuria depends seems only a few days ahead. Advices from the front are meager. All that is positively known officially is that Gen. Kuropatkin has cast the die at last, about faced his army and is marching resolutely against the enemy as if resolved to do or die. According to unofficial reports Field Marshal Oyama, at the first sign of Gen. Kuropatkin taking the offensive, began drawing in his line and concentrating upon fortified posi tions north of Liau-yang. According to the latest reports which are contained in a dispatch from Mukden, the Japa nese outposts are being driven in all along the line. The strategy of the forward movement will be con cealed as were the preparations for the advance, so that all surmises as to where Gen. Kuropatkin intends to strike are mere guess work. HIS DESIGN UNKNOWN It is not clear whether Gen. Kuropatkin contemplates a blow on the left, center or right of the Japanese army, but the fact that stress is laid upon the capture of Bentsiaputze, which opens the road and fords to Bensihu, twenty miles east of Liau-yang, where Gen. Kuroki crossed, and that Cossacks are already reported in the neighborhood of the stream, might foreshadow an exact reversal of the battle of Liau vang, this time the Russian commander flanking and turning Liau-yang with his left as Field Marshal Oyama did with his liglLittle light has been thrown upon the considerations which led Gen. Kuropatkin suddenly to assume the offensive; but no word is heard at the war office intimating that the course savors of rashness. Officers of the general staff ex press confidence that Gen. Kuropatkin has found a weak point in the Japanese armor. WHY. THE ADVANCE Different explanations abound as to the reason for making the forward movement at this time. The a^ceisfttrilo uted to a realization by Gen. Kuropatkin of the difficulty the Japanese have encountered in making good their levies at Liau-vang and replenishing their supplies and ammunition, or possib?y to thePdrawing off of a portion of the Japanese troops to reinforce Gen. Nogi in a desperate endeavor to end thC^SSev.rthe^xTanation, it is apparent from the hasty manner in which the Japanese withdrew before the first show of Russian strength that their recent ostentatious prep arations for an advance were largely, bluff The best opinion here is that the impending battle is likely to develop with 513 tt!S ffre"orted yihat the Japanese have abandoned Sianchan, Snimatsze and Meichoulin, positions east of Liau-yang.

A hurried trip from the graveyard back to the undertaker's establish ment, an autopsy by three physicians, the denial of such an autopsy and the admitting of the facts by two of the physicians are the links in the chain. Mr. Morrow died, it was claimed at the time of his death, from pneumonia. Then friends began to cite an instance of how, several days prior to his death, he had fallen down and him self while in pursuit of several boys who were attempting to make 'oft with articles stolen from the store in which the deceased was employed as a clerk. This accident, according to the friends, resulted in internal bleeding and the victim's subsequent death. In case this theory proved to be the truth, the estate would profit to the ex tent of several thousands of dollars accident insurance, but in case of death from natural causes the insur ance would not be collectable. It is around this fact that the mys tery hinges. The body was taken to Calvary cem etery Monday afternoon, being followed to the grave by representations from the Woodmen, the Commercial Travel- DAVIS APPEARS AS A CAMPAIGNER Candidate for Vice President and David B. Hill Speak to Baltimore Democrats BALTIMORE, Md., Oct. 10.—The campaign tour of Henry G. Davis, Democratic vice presidential candidate, through Maryland and West Virginia, was begun here tonight.by an immense* gathering of Democrats in Lyric hal!, the concourse being so vast that thou- saj^ds.. unable to gain admission to tho hall, were addrressed at an overflow meeting from a stand on the public streets, hastily erected for the occa sion. The proceedings were marked by great enthusiasm from first to last. Senator Davis received an enthusiastic ovation upon his appearence, as did the venerable ex-governor and senator, William Pinckney Whyte, David B. Hill, Senator Gorman and Senator Daniel, all of whom made speeches and all of whom, with the exception of Senator Gorman, will accompany Sen ator Davis on his tour. Senator Gorman presided, introduc ing each of the speakers. He intro duced Senator Davis as "the young man." « Senator Davis expressed his great pleasure at being privileged to address such a vast audience in his native state. He said: We are now in the midst of a presiden tial campaign in which the people are called upon to demand whether officers in high places in the government are to be governed by % spirit of extravagance, party domination and party advantage. The Democratic party has been called a party of strict eonstructionists.

C.

BACK TO PORT ARTHUR Can It Withstand the Journey Back Again marched to the grounds. Then, as soon as the shades of evening began to fall, the body was quickly taken from its resting place, hustled into a waiting wagon and taken to the slab of cold marble at the Dampier undertaking es tablishment. Here Drs. Cook, Herbert Davis and Rothrock performed an autopsy, start ing at 8 o'clock last "night. They found out that death resulted from inflam mation and ulceration of the bowels. Drs. Rothrock and Davis, upon being asked by a Globe reporter for par ticulars, seemed perfectly willing to tell all they knew of the circumstances. Undertaker Dampier's attendants, however, refused point blank to talk over the matter, alleging that no such autopsy had taken place, and that the body had not been and was not in the establishment since the funeral. This was in the face of the physicians' statement that they had participated in the autopsy, and that the body was at the time resting in the undertaker's shop. Coroner Miller, when seen last night, said he knew nothing of the disinter ment or the desire for an autopsy, and that the case had not been reported to him. He presumed that the relatives were in charge of the body and had the right to hold an autopsy. Assistant County Attorney O'Neill said he did not believe that the removal of the body was an infraction of the law, although there might be an ordi nance covering the case.

Martin having failed to make good as manager of the Dunn campaign, friends of Joel P. Heatwole are preparing to demand that he be given a chance to demonstrate his po litical ability as head of the Repub lican state central committee. The Heatwole following throughout the state insist that Martin is the Alexleff of the present state campaign, and that Heatwole looks like Kuropat kin and should be given his opportu nity to demonstrate his strategic qual ities. Heatwole Republicans are gathering in St. Paul to meet the Northfield Re publican leader at the Ryan hotel, where he has taken quarters for a few days, and the result of the conference which began last night is expected to be a demand on R. C. Dunn to displace Martin by Heatwole and save the dsy. In the second transformation which is to be enacted, if Heatwole's friends are listened to by Mr. Dunn and his political advisers, both Mr. Martin and Conde Hamlin will go, and in their place Joel P. Heatwole, the sage of Northfield, victor of political battlea for the last thirty years, will be In stalled. Mr. Heatwole was at the Ryan hotel last night, and admits he will remain over today. He denies that anything more than a casual meeting with some of his political friends of the state Is planned, and says there is .nothing he can be given by the present chiefs in control which will in anywise influence his political future. Heatwole Calls Conference Word came to The Globe last night from a source close to Mr. Heat wole that he had called a conference of his political followers for St. Paul, and that there will be a formal demand upon R. C. Dunn that he say the word that will result in James A. Martin walking the plank to political oblivion.

PAUL Dunn Is, according to this source of news, to be given the option of barking up on the drastic action taken two weeks ago which ended in the involun tary retirement of W. E. Verity as sec retary of the committee because of hla known friendship for Mr. Heatwole. This man, who exacted a pledge that his name should not be used in connec tion with the report, declared that from thirty to forty Heatwole Republicans . had been summoned to St. Paul to meet their leader in conference at the Ryan hotel Monday night, when plans are to be perfected for presenting the situa . tion to Mr. Dunn and inviting his at tention to a remedy. The plan, according to this man, is to make a showing of facts to Dunn. He is to be shown where the acquisi tion of James A. Martin, under the un usual circumstances connected with his assumption of authority, has "been the worst political mistake in the history, of any political party, and that his re tirement alone can heal the wounds from which the party is suffering.- If defeat staring Mr. Dunn in the face had been the controlling cause of his turning down of Heatwole and Verity in the midst of the campaign for the governor's office, the fact that the out look is even still more desperate will cause him to listen to the new proposi tion, which includes the ditching of Martin and the taking on of* Heat wole. The proposal, which It Is* said will result from the conference of Mr. Heat woJe and his backers, will be an ulti matum to Mr. Dunn which will demand nothing less than Martin going in the discard and Heatwole again being made the trump card.

PETERSBURG, Oct. 10. — The rumor of the existence of a secret un derstanding between Russia and Ger many covering the war in the far East has again been revived. According to the latest version Germany give's cer tain guarantees to Emperor Nicholas regarding the German frontier, which will enable Russia to withdraw troops from the big garrisons maintained in Russian Poland and dispatch them to the far East. Germany agrees to sup port Russia in the peace negotiations at the end of the war. Germany's compensation, in addition to the con cessions made in the commercial trea ties already negotiated, is to be the support of Russia in the attempt to incorporate the Netherlands in the German confederation in the event o£ the death of Queen Wilhelmina with out a direct heir. Diplomatic circles are discussing the story with interest. While it is classed in the same category as other similar stories by most of the diplomats, it finds more credence In quarters not particularly noted for friendliness eith er to Russia or Germany, it being even asserted that the recent visit of the Grand Duke Vladimir to Berlin, osten sibly to consult a specialist, in reality was to confer with Emperor William In person on this subject. Nothing confirmatory of the resport is obtain able in responsible government circles, where the story Is dismissed as being the invention of enemies of both coun tries. , TO JOIN SOCIALISTS I Italian Republicans Will Make Common Cause Wilh Them A decree dissolving the chamber of deputies will be issued Oct. 13, fixing the general elections fof* Oct. 30 and Nov. 6 and summoning the chamber for Nov. 15.
