RUSSIA'S OFFICIAL NOTICE England Approves the Attitude of the United States On Eastern Situation. London, May 13. It Is authoritative y reported from Peking that the Rus sian charge d'affaires, M. Flancon. hai given reassurances regarding Manchu ria. He has Issued an official notice that all Manchuria la open to foreign travel and adds that passports are no longer necessary. There n'crc fiflrt T!n!in (million nt Newchwang, who were removed about the date fixed for the evacuation, and the same number returned to New chwang. It appears that the Russian force which returned to the Liao forti merely used the forts ns temporary resting places while Journeying south ward to their station cm the peninsula. The United States consul nt New chwang has arrived in Peking to con fer with Minister Conger. Lord Crunborne, the undersecretary for foreign affairs, by Ms statement In the house of commons deprived the anti-Russian jingoes of the last ex cuse they had for continuing their ef forts to stir up feeling In this country and in the United States over Man churia. It must be admitted that they were more successful in Inflating the press of the United Slates than that of England. Lveii the must passion ate denunciation of 'Russia's alleged duplicity, selected with great cure from certain New York papers and cabled hero, failed in its object. Viittrd Stateis' Attitude Approved. Before Lord Cranbnrne made his statement the Westminster Gazette, re viewing the situation, said: "The state ment that the Washington state de partment will ilefer taking any action with regard to Russia's course in Man cburia until it is sure of the facts in the case, is en. in. inly a prudent and sensible resolve." Karon HayaMii, the Japanese minis ter In London, made light of the alarm ist reports. He said: "I am still with out information from my government as to the occupation by Russia of New chwang. If the news is true I should certainly have been Informed immedi ately of the fact. That Kussia denies the occupation makes my unbelief of the report stronger than ever, but Uus sia would know better than to force tnattcrs to a climax. "Neither does Japan wish to see that state of affairs brought about. The Anglo-Japanese alliance would come In to operation In such an event, but 1 hope Mich a contingency will be far distant."

BULLET IN HIS HEAD Edward Shattuck of Burl ington Killed Himself. WAS IN POOR HEALTH Kept a Restaurant On Bank Street and Appeared at Supper . . as Usual. Burlington, May 13. Edward II. Shat tuck, proprietor of the Hotel Shattuck, at 185 Bank street,' committed suicide last evening by shooting himself through the head. Mr. Shattuck ate supper at the us ual time and the family noticed nothing unusual in his actions. About 7 o'clock he left the restaurant and it. is supposed went at once to his -room and shot him self. 'An hour later Mrs. Shattuck " went to the room, which was dark, and in cross ing it came upon his dead body. Health Othcer Clark was summoned and found that Mr. Shattuck had shot himself with a revolver, which he held in his richt hand, lie had placed the weapon in his mouth and pointed it upwards. Death was . undoubtedly instantaneous. Two chambers of the revolver were empty but there w ere no indications that he had nsed the weapon more than once. The shot was not heard by any one in the building. Mr. Shattuck had not been in good health for some time and the cause of the suicide must be a matter of conjec ture as he left no note or other word of explanation.

SUMMERSKILL SHOT IN HUNT FOR BURGLAR St. Albans Han Attacks Neighbor Who .Had Come to Rescue, and is . Fired at by Latter. St. Albans, May 12. As the outcome of a 'burglar hunt at the residence of T. A. Summerskill, superintendent of motive power of the Central Vermont railway, early today, Mr. Sntmnerskill was shot and seriously wounded. Early in the morning the residence of the superintendent was visited by a burg lar. The noise caused by his entry aroused Mr. Summerskill, and the latter proceeded to investigate. He found a man in the house, but was unable to capture him, the robber making his escape. Mr. Summerskill, seeing that the man was likely to get away, and not knowing how many companions might be near, called lustily for assistance. .His cries were heard by Col. A. A. Hall, one of the leading attorneys in Vermot, whose resi dence is situated near that of Mr. Suni merskill. Col. Hall called his son, Harry, and the latter prepared to go to Mr. Sum nierskill's assistance. Young Hall armed himself with a re volver and proceeded to the superintend ent's house. In the darkness Hall mis took Mr. Summerskill for the burglar, and the superintendent, supposing that the young man was the robber, attacked him with a club. Young Hall was bruised, and finding himself in danger of his life drew his revolver from his pocket and fired. The bullet, which was from a heavy army revolver, iniiieted a serious wound, although it is thought Mr. Suui merskiU'8 chances of recovery arefair. When the railroad man cried out after beifig shot, he saw that an unfortunate mistake had been made, but by the time other neighbors had been called the bur glar was nowhere to he found. Sheriff Kelley was soon on the gronnd and took personal charge of the hunt for the house-breaker, who had caused all the trouble, and all towns for miles around were advised to look out for the suspect. It was learned that a well dressed man, wearing a pair of ladies rubbers had board ed an early morning street car, ridden to the bay and back again. He got off the car at the Holy. Augels church on Lake street and walked up town to Desehenes shoe store, where he entered and bought a pair of cheap shoes, No. 7's. He explain ed to Desehenes that he had lost his shoes in the lsjte. When this was learned the hunt for the man doubled and he was found and arrested in the depot at about 0.30 o'clock and taken up to the jail. The prisoner told several contradictory stories when arrested, but all circumstan ces point to his being the man wanted for breaking in. He gave his name as Albert Rodier of Montreal and said he was on his way to Burlington aud didn't know what he was arrested for. GOING TO ANNAPOLIS.

The tire inquest over the Tilden house fire was continued before Grand Juror Scott in City Attorney Gordon's oflicethis morning and four witnesses were heard. They were Michael Butler, whom a pre vious witness bad declared he had seen In the house five weeks ago, William Martin who lives on the opposite side of the street, Fireman Ben Gilley aud Thomas Brown who had put the sewing machines in the ell part of th.e house Saturday af ternoon. Butler denied that he had been in the house since the Ryang moved out. Martin told of seeing two men run away from the place about the time the alarm rang. Gil ley testiiied that all the doors of the house were locked when he got to the tire. Brown said he didn't know whether he shut the shed door or not when he tiniihed putting in the sewing machines. The officers of the Inquest then went to the scene of the fire and inspected the premises. The testimony was concluded yesterday afternoon at half past four o'clock, after the fifteenth witness for the day had been put on. The witnesses included firemen, police officers, the keepers of the property and J. A. Lucas, who rented the barn. Attorney Frank J, Martin appeared for Mrs. Tilden, the owner of the property. Firemen Adolph Goneo, W. 6. Abbot, Creamer Allen and Frank U. Morgan told of the condition of the house when they arrived at the scene of the fire. The fire men all testiiied that the doors of the house were ail securely locked when they reached the fire. On this point there is a good deal of misunderstanding, as some of the other witnesses had said that the doors of the house had been unlocked for several weeks. The firemen testified that they had to use force to get in. It was brought out that the last tenants, the Ryans, had been notified to vacate the building by the keepers, the Perry Real Estate Agency, and that the barn was rented by J. A. Lucas of Mont pelier who had 13 sewing machines stored in the rear part of the house. It also de veloped that Mr. Lucas had no authority for putting the machines in. the house. When Mr. Lucas was placed on the stand he told about his movements that night.

Wilson Marshall who had kept his horse in the barn said the doors of the house had been unlocked and that he had heard the building was a "common runway." Five weeks ago he had seen five men inside the house drinking from a bottle. He declar ed'he hsd also seen small boys in the build ing and that he had driven them out. He had goae.lu to get water to water his horse. RURAL DELIVERY ROUTE NUMBER ONE Special Agent Gark Campbell Inspects Same, and Will Recommend Its Establishment.
