"Off Again, On Again, Gone Again," Kuropatkin OATS»BARLEV MM UP LARGE Minnesota and the Dakotas Have Much Bigger Yields Than a Year Ago Globe Special Washington Service, 1417 G Street WASHINGTON, D. C, Ocfc 15.—Al though the wheat crop is short in the Northwest, the indications are that the oat and barley harvests in Minnesota and the Dakotas are considerably larg er than last 3'ear's. In every case "the acreage this year is estimated as larg er than last year, and the indicated yield per acre is generally larger. Ac cording to the October schedule of the department of agriculture, the acreage sown to barley in Minnesota this year was 1,131,003 acres, as agains-t 1,098,143 acres in 1903. The same authority es timates the acreage yield this year at 28.4 bushels, as against 25.3 bushels in 1903. The indicated harvest, therefore, is 32,123,041 bushels, as against 27, --873,170 bushels last year. Similar conditions appear in North Dakota, that state apparently produc ing this year 17,518,073 bushels of bar ley, as against 12,468,364 last year. Tn. South Dakota, -on the other hand, al though the acreage was larger, the acreage yield is apparently less, and this year's barley crop is estimated at 9,787,624 bushels, as against 10,656,438 bushels for the season of 1903. The combined crop of oats in the three states is probably 26,000,000 bushels larger than it was last year. The Minnesota acreage is given as 2,172,921 acres, as against 2,130,315 in 1903, and the yield is much higher, be ing estimated at 39.2 bushels per acre, as against 32.3 bushels last year. The indicated crop is 85,178,503 bushels. —Walter E. Clark.

During the recess the rup ture of diplomatic relations between France and the Vatican and the recall of M. Nissard, the French ambassador to the holy see, occurred. It is the purpose of the governmei^ to immedi ately ask for a vote of confidence con cerning what has bc*n done. The re cent provincial elections have shown that Premier Combes is as strong as ever, so no doubt exists that he will continue to command a good majority during the coming session. After parliament hears the particu lars of the government's rupture with the .Vatican,- it will remain for M. Combes to mature his plan for bring ing about the separation of church and state. Thus far lie has not indi cated his plans except in a speech at Auxerre, wherein he said the govern ment did not propose to patch up the concordat after the Vatican had torn it to pieces. It is expected that M. Combes will leave the details of the matter for the separation to the spe cial commission, which has already drawn up a project. This will be ready for presentation in January, and M. Combes therefore has promised that parliament shall have an opportunity to express its wishes as to when the separation shall actually occur. A bit ter contest is promised. CURFEW ORDINANCE CLEARS THE STREETS Children Heed Chief O'Connor's Warning and Hurry to Their Homes The first night of the strict enforce ment of the curfew law. in St. Paul showed conclusively that the orders issued by Chief of Police O'Connor, and published exclusively in The Globe, were observed almost to the letter, the few violations being more in the nature of ignorance of the fact than an embargo had been placed upon the midnight prowlings of Young America than through willful diso bedience of the law. When the night detail of patrolmen was lined up for instructions at Cen tral station last night, Capt,- William Hanft, in charge of the station, gave the men orders to keep the streets clear of children under the age of sixteen who were out in violation qf.J,ht* cur few ordinance. The law permits chil dren accompanied by either their par ents or guardians, or those in the pur suit of business, to go unmolested, but those who are out for the simple pleas ure of seeing the city were ordered brought to the station, in case they re fused to take the shortest routes to their homes. Capt. Hanft ordered the patrolmen to first warn the offenders and allow them to start for .home. In case that a sec ond warning was needed, the patrol wagon was to end the prowling for the night of the youthful offender. The plain clothes men, or detectives, were also instructed in their duties re garding the enforcement of Hie act, Chief O'Connor himself delivering the orders. Continued on Twenty-fourth Page RUSSIAN MORTALITY IS MOST FRIGHTFUL LOSSES PLACED AT OVER THIRTY THOUSAND Kuropatkin Continues to Fight Dog gedly So as to Save the Russian Army From an Utter Rout—Oyama's Troops Drive Their Enemy to the Sakhe River and Continue Pursuit TOKYO, Oct. 16, 9 a. m.—The latest-advices are that the Russians left 4,500 dead in front of Gen. Kuroki's army alone., The Russian losses there are estimated at 20,000 men. The reports of Gens. Nodzu and Oku are incomplete, but everything indicates that Field Marshal Oyama's estimate of the Russian loss at 30,000 men will fall far below the acutal mark. Gen. Kuropatkin's southern advance has been beaten back and his army is in retreat. He is, however, fighting dog gedly, so as to save the Russian army from an utter rout. Field Marshal Oyama's triumphant troops have driven the Russians north to a line along the Sha (Sakhe) river. They are vigorously pressing the pursuit and probably will inflict further severe damage on Kuropatkin's forces. As a result of the bloody battle of Oct. 14 the Russians left 2,000 dead on the field which they lost. Field Marsal Oyama estimates the Russian losses at over 30,000. The fighting continued all along the entire line today and the end is not near. It seems to be impossible for the Russians to rally, and they probably will be pressed back across the Hun river. NOTHING BUT RETREAT INPU VILLAGE, Oct. 14, midnight (by courier to Mukden).' —The difficulties of their task and their heavy losses com pelled the Russians to abandon their efforts to capture the heights commanding Tumin pass. Meanwhile the Japanese attacks upon the entire Russian front continued. This prob ably led to the orders to the east columns on the night of Oct. 13 to retreat north of the passes. The detachments on the flanks also retreated, but the fight was continued in another place, about 2 o'clock in the morning. The artillery fire which began on the southwestern front, seemingly near Sakhe, on the morning of Friday, became heavier and con tinued throughout the day, despite the storm of rain and hail, and it is continuing now, midnight. The only cessation has been daily between 7 and 10 o'clock in the evening:- WORSE THAN LIAU-YANG It is still difficult to judge the final results of this desperate fight, before which the battles at Tureneheng, Vafangow and even LiaU-yang pale into insignificance. It is apparent that the .Japanese still outnumber the Russians. All the chief roads in the direction of Mukden are crowded with wounded. The Red Cross field hospitals have mobilized all their forces. There is a great lack of bandaging material. JAP REPORTS FROM THE FIELD TOKYO. Oct. 13. —Reports from the field, received and published this evening, are as follows: "Right army: The force of the enemy which opposed the right flank of the right army, holding the vicinities of Tu mentsu (Tumin) and Ta passes engaged our detachment which was sent to Bensihu, but was unable to keep his ground on Oct. 14 and showed signs of retreat. The com mander of the army then ordered the Bensihu detachment hotly to pursue the enelny toward the east and north. This detachment immediately formed itself into two detachments Continued on Twenty-Fourth Page SECOND SECTION PAGES 11 to 26 PRICE FIVE CENTS, MARRY ON AN AUTO Couple Are Doubly Wed to Comply With the Law Special to The Globe SIOUX FALLS, S. D., Oct. 15.—The courtship of Christian Silistia, a prom inent young business man of Parkston, and the woman of his choice, who came from lowa for the purpose of uniting her fortunes with those of the young South Dakotan, had a romantic termination. They were twice married within an hour, the second time in an automobile while speeding over a coun try road at the rate of forty-five miles an hour. . \ With the idea of surprising the friends and relatives of the groom at Parkston, Mr. Silistia, after procuring a marriage license, met his sweetheart ' at Scotland, Bon Homme county, where they made their way to the home of Rev. A. M. Thurston, who pronounced them man and wife. While the mar riage certificate was being prepared It was discovered by the clergyman that the marriage license had been issued in Hutchinson county, of which Park ston Is one of the principal towns. As the state law requires marriage cere monies to be performed in the county in which a license is issued, the bride and groom were greatly perplexed as to what course they could adopt in or der to make their marriage legal and binding. When they were at their wits' end, the clergyman's wife came to their res cue by suggesting that they induce Dr. Seagley, a Scotland physician, to take the wedding party in his automobile and proceed with all haste across the border to Hutchinson county. The bride and groom, with the clergyman and physician, were bundled into the automobile, which was soon speeding In the direction of the Hutchinson county line, only a few miles away. Soon the party had entered Hutchin son, county and while the automobile was gliding along over a public high way, a new marriage ceremony was performed, and the couple had the pleasure of knowing that thestate law. had been strictly complied with.
