Outposts are in touch near Yental and skir mishes between the outposts and patrol parties occur daily. It is be lieved the Russians are gathering in force at Yentai preparatory to making a strong stand for the protection of the coal mines. The Japanese are rapidly changing the guage of the rail road from New Chwang. Probably it will he in operation to Liaoyang in a fortnight. They are rushing forward supplies and ammunition.

Ailwiut-rn l'rom Snulhnrl. London, Sept. 21. Kuroki's army has swung eastward across the Hun river and is advancing rap'idly on -Mukden from the southwest. This new, received at St. Petersburg dur ing the night caused general surprise n the Russian war otlice, where it was entirely unexpected. Kuroki apparently has completely deceived the Russian strategists. They have believed that he would work his way north of Mukden by the eastern route, kec ing his forces well screen ed behind the hill 20 or "r miles to the eastward. oNNii-k (;-ihtiiI Ori-rlt cil. Acting on this belief. Kuropatkin's Cossack generals. Rennenknmpff, Mist chenko. and SainsonolT have been scouring t li . country northeast of Yen tai. On Sept. 17 Kuropatkin reported that there was no enemy east of I lent -saiputzo. Renin iikaiiipiT's division has been kept near Bontsaiputze to impede- Kuroki's advance northward, and the Russian war office has rested se cure in the belief that there would be no general Japanese advance for Several weeks. Kuroki. by a rapid march, left Rcn iieiikampff's Cossacks to watch an empty camp and swinging his divis ions, eight or nine in number, to the eastward, crossed the railroad, cross ed the Hun river without opposition, and is now advancing on Mukden. where a battle is reported to be im -j minenf. Kuroki has from leo.imn to 12.",000 men, according to the Russian reports. Oku mill Ikh ot l.oiiitril. The St. Petersburg dispatches make no reference to the divisions under Oku and Nodzu. Those two generals and their armies seem to have disap peared completely from the scene of opera! ions. Kuroki's sudden and unexpected ad vance on Mukden, however, will nec essarily develop the whereabouts of Oku and Nodzu. It is stated that (ion. Kuropatkin has heon reinforced at Mukden since Sept. ! by 17" guns and S.").(eit men. the majority of whom are picked troops from western Russia. Of the 22. "mi wounded men at Harbin it is asserted that lru'O" will be prac tically fit for service in ten days. Vtlnik on lNirt Arthur. The Japanese apparently have be K:n a d. tt rminod assault on Dragon hill, or Khrlung hill fort, northeast of Port Arthur. Chofoo and Shanghai reports de clare that the Japan- so have already captured two important forts north of Porth Arthur, as a part of the move ment against Dragon hill. The Dragon hill fort, designated on most maps as Khrlung hill, is one of the most Important defenses of Por; Arthur. It is almost directly east of Takushan fort, already held bv the Japanese, and between it ami Port Arthur there is nothing to interfere CRITICISES THE NEWSPAPERS Public Service May Be Curtailed in Several Places if it is Not Better Appreciated. Peoria, 111., Sept. 21. Charlatans in weather forecasting and the unscien tific reports published in some news papers were serevely denounced in vesterdav's session of the weather bureau officials' convention. Prif. Willis L. Moore, chief of the bureau, provoked storms of applause at the conclusion of Prof, Garriott's paper on the topic of long range forecasting when he said: "If the local press in communities where we have stations established do not discontinue the publication or these long range forecasts we will ser iously consider, at the central office, the question of holding back construc tion work in that locality and with drawing from the fields now occupied." Eleven papers on technical subjects were read and discussed by the offi cials present. Mny Amplify Itopnrf. Dr. Wilson, of Milwaukee, spoke of the amplification of forecasts for the benefit of perishable products, and Prof. Moore gave the officials permis sion to amplify the reports hereafter in accordance with the suggestions of Dr. Wilson. Prof. Cox, of Chicago, presented a report on weather bureau printed forms based on the plan in vogue in the Chicago office, which report will be adopted by the central office.

Prof. Alex ander Graham Bell lias taken out a patent on his tetrahedral kite. He has apparently made valuable improve ments on his system of kites as the basis of an "aerial vehicle." He has not discovered yet any new kind of Hying machine. He has, however, dis covered a principle, by means of his kites by which the ratio of weight and kite surface remains about, the same, the increase of weight not materially decreasing the floating capacity of his tetrahedral kite of many cells.

Fanning, Political Editor of the Brooklyn Eagle. Summarizes Situation After Attending the Chicago Conference Democratic Weakness in Organization. Which is Being Repaired. Chicago. Sept. 21. N. O. Fanning, the political staff editor of the Brook lyn Kaglo, sent the following dispatch to his paper from Chicago Monday, at the close of the democratic conference held at state committee headquarters: Republican over-confidence in the middle west situation, which has bet n encouraged by expressions of the leaders hire ami in adjoining staus since the Vermont and Maine elec tions, is very rapidly disappearing. This is a logical result of republican measurements of the issues, the folly of insistence that the silver question is not dead, and the unfounded pre sumption that the democratic party continues to be divided against itself. The republican managers have not had, at any time since the democratic na tional convention, reasonable grounds for their claim that the middle west is overwhelmingly in favor of their can didates and platform in this presiden tial lection. On l"lc ItaMiN. Their claims have been on a false basis of comparison between the pres idential election of lfnii and lit"". In I',"" Mr. McKinley carried Illinois by .'"', Wisconsin by l"i;,(int. Minne sota by 77,""' Michigan by luL'ii'ii, and Indiana by 2t;.'"". These plurali ties represented in great part the de fection of gold democrats to republi canism, since, of the five states named, four had given in 12 pluralities for Mr. Cleveland. To claim Illinois for Mr. Roosevelt this year by more than Inn. iii.o, Indiana by 3'i.ei'H. and the re mainder of the states named by large pluralities, as some of the republican leaders have done, it has been neces sary for them to assume that Mr. Roosevelt is stronger with the people than Mr. McKinley and Judge Parker is weaker than Mr. Bryan, as shown by the test of If"1!', and it has been necessary also to set aside the demon strations of room political history which prove that Mr. Roosevelt is not running for president on the issues of McKinl-y republicanism against Judge Parker on the democratic platform of If"".. If it is to be supposed that the republican leaders are sincere in their claims, it mut be said that they are grossly ignorant of political history St. Louis, Sept. 21. A military par ade and reception at the Illinois build ing given by Gov. Yates, together with special exercises, constitute the feat ure of the Illinois celebration at the world's fair which commenced today and will continue throughout tomor row. Gov. Yates was met by a battal ion of the Illinois National Guards and escorted to the state pavilion. A dress parade of Illinois troops on the Plaza St. Louis was followed by a concert by the military band from Jacksonville. This evening there will be a reception and dance in the Illinois state building. OTHER COUNTRIES GROWING TOO WISE Naval Reports to Be Altered to Guard Secrets of This Military Nation. Washington, Sept. 21.

Much that hitherto has been included in those papers will be omitted. WAS KEEN TRADER BUT BIT AT THE OLD GAME Farmers Looking With Shotguns for Swindlers Who Fleeced Henry Croofoot. Mishavvaka, Ind., Sept. 21. Henry Croofoot. a farmer living four miles south of this city, was the victim of a gold brick scheme and was swindled out of $r.iiM(. Croofoot, who is 7 years old and wealthy, was shown what he thought to be a gold brick by three swindlers. They came to the city and Mr. Croofoot drew $.".mio from the First National bank. The j exchange took place at the home of i the farmer, and after the men were j gone the victim found that be owned a common paving brick, gilded. Farm ers vvc r" m once notified and are now pursuing the swindlers with shotguns. The police of South Bend and this city are making every effort to cap ture them. Croofoot has borne the reputation of being a keen trader. and conditions and the existing state of the public mind. lili-jH Not Itiallri'H. l"p to this time the. development of the campaign has boei inexorably against these republican ideas. Fail ure has followed every republican ef fort to paint Mr. Roosevelt as Mr. Mc Kinley. and to identif Judge Parker defensively with the issues which led I lie democrats to defeat in isyi and H"io. The democrats have taken ag gressive positions on timely questions. They have presented a candidate for president who offers evjty assurance of safety anil stability jn the executive office if lie is elected. They attack the republican position on the tariff, the trusts, public expenditures anil miltar ism. Nothing less than a complete collapse of democracy, of which there certainly can be no indications observ ed at this time, can prevent a full and free discussion of all the issues which the democrats intend to press as the campaign advances. It is plainly with in the observation of all the politic-inns of the middle west that the people at large will take no inte rest whatever in charges and counter-charges involving points of either republican or demo cratic history, and that they do take interest in the live questions which affect the prosperity of the country v.t the present time, and point out the divergencies of national aims and prospects in the republican and dem ocratic iolicies as re presented by Pre sident Rooevclr and Judge Parker. C annon llrliulvt-M i.-nilrr. Representative Cannon, with his us ual brusqueness, rebuked the republi can leaders of this state the other day for their optimism. The republican speaker has been traveling through Illinois. Indiana and Nebraska and found that the republicans are apa thetic and the democrats ?crive every where. He informe-d the managers of th-3 sta'e and national campaigns that at least three of thj congressional dis tricts now held by republicans in Illi nois were likely to go democratic, and that the general indications wherever he has gone pointed to a large demo cratic vote. Statements of this char acter are frequently made in the exi gencies of jiolitics to arouse the lag- Wreck on the Illinois Central Result of Malice.

THE FACT THAT WIN IN NOVEMBER ganls and put life into a dead cam paign. But in this case Mr. Cannon stated the exact truth as it is known to all the politicians of the middle west. Republican meetings are not. well attended. There is no enthusiasm for Mr. Roosevelt nor for the state tickets of the republican party in any of tlie- middle vest commonwealth. The elation which followed the first re turns from Vermont and Maine is no longer observable. The re is now a dis tinct feeling of disappointment aiming the- re-publican leaders here, which is so we ll voiced iir this editorial from the Chicago Inter-Ocean, a re publican ne-wspaper : "The first reports e f the Maine- state election exaggerated I he re-publican plurality.

The Rus sian government is greatly wrought up over the conquest of Thibet by Croat. Britain, the full significance of which has dawned on the czar's ministers since the- text of treaty arrived.

She will lodge a protest with the British for eign office and also with tlu Chinese gove rnment, where the treaty goe-s for ratification. The Russ. which is now considered to especially reflect the views of the foreign ofliev. bitterly complains and in conclusion sas significantly: "The nroclainat ion of the British protector ate must be regarded as an accomplish ed fact, but whether it will be real and hist ing must depend upon future events in cent ra 1 Asia."
