BATTL AT muk E DEN Russians Will Make De fense Outside of City. NO NEWS OF A FIGHT Report That All Idea of Carry ing Port Arthur by As sault is Abandoned. St. Petersburg, Oct. 1. Important developments on the eastern flank of the Manchurian army are admitted by the war office to be proceeding. The Russian cavalry is executing impor tant movements, trying to cut the Japanese line of communications and thus defeat the flank advance. It is denied that a general engagement ha been won at Mukden by the Japanese. llnltlt- fit 'Mukden. St. Petersburg, Oct. 1. Gen. Kuro patkin now is concentrating his forces .-it Tieling. Mukden evidently will be spared the terrors of a battlefield. In the meantime matters are said to be lively in the sacred capital. Trade is brisk, especially in furs. The Japa nese in force- at Davan, on the Liao river, are making their way toward Sinniinting. A second force is near Tchantang, with its center at Sehel ic.hebanjaplsa, while Con. Kuroki with an unexpected amount of cavalry is pushing along in the mountains to the ca st . Ilf-nt I'lulifrr on Way. In a fortnight's time Gen. Kuropat kin will be reen forced by the Nth hi my corps, the best equipped fighting unit of Russia. I'ntil then lie is lit tle likely to give battle, according to competent military authority. The report that the Japanese are iisin Chefoo as a harbor for torpedo boats Is indignantly resented here. It will supply a lead to Russia for util izing Mongolia for military purposes. The change of tactics on the part of the Japanese, attacking all along the line, renders Gen. Stoessel's task doubly difficult. He can no longer call out the reserves and concentrate them on one spot, ns was the case hereto fore. The military critic of Novoe Vreinya says this increases the chances of Japan's success.

Initernational rec ognition of divorce decrees where the court granting the decree is located in the territory where the marriage was celebrated was one of the points urged by Sir 'William R. Kennedy, justice of the high court of England, in his address at the closing session yester day of the universal congress of law years and jurists. His subject was "To What Extent Should Judicial Action by Courts of Foreign Nations be Recognized," and his argument tended to show the im portance of the establishment, either by "tacit recognition or international pact, of the principle that a judgment anywhere is a judgment every where." A resolution was unanimously adopt ed requesting the American Bar asso ciation to take steps to organize a per manent association of lawyers repre senting the different countries of the world.

Jnpnnrvr llrlvru Hack. St. Petersburg. Oct. 1. The war of fice at a late hour last night gave out a telegram from Gen. Sakharoff. dated Sept. describing a successful a sault upon a Japanese advance guard near entai on fept. z-v i ne Japa nese began the fight by attacking a po sition held by the Russians at Ouli taidze. 2' miles south of the Hun rive r. The Russians withdrew and then counter-marched and occupied the enemy's position at Toumytsa. north of Yentai. and drove the Japanese as far as Yen tai station, losing four men wound ed, whereas the Japanese lost 2 killed or wounded. Sakharoff further reports that a reconnaissance on Sept. 23 showed that the Japanese force was concen trating in increasing numbers along the Yentai branch of the railroad, and tha' there is also considerable concen tration of the Japanese along the Tai tse river near Hensihu. Sakharoff's telegram as given to the press contains no mention of develorv- ments on the eastern flank. This si lence probably is due to the fact that details of operations telegraphed to the emperor at Odessa had not reached the general staff. PUT UP THE PRICE Ceef Trust Marks Knd or Strike by Advancing Prices Another Cent. PUBLIC IS AT ITS MERCY At the Same Time Brewery War Cuts Price of Beer Nearly in Half. Chicago, Oct. 1. Beef went up with a bound yesterday and beer came down with a thud. A half-cent a pound was tacked onto the price of the bet ter cuts of meats, making the price a cent a pound higher than the values exacted during the packing-house strike, the other half-cent having been added immediately after the union men gave up the struggle against their former employes. No reason was giv en for this latest advance. With beer the shift of prices was in dollars rather than cents. Amber liquid of the grade that normally sells for $G a barrel could be bought as low as $3.50. The big reduction was due to a fight for trade among the brew eries, the cut being made by the so called trust in an effort to under mine the business of a local brewery which has refused to come into the fold. l-ait at lllxh Mark. The added half-cent to the price of choice cuts of beef brought the whole sale price up to 17 cents a pound. Be fore the stockyards strike the price was 15 cents. After the strike ended half a cent was. added. Yesterday the retail dealers and res taurant owners were dismayed by the announcement that there had been still another advance of half a cent. As one restaurant owner said: "It looks as if the packers need or want the money. Market condi tions do not justify the advance, which simply means that the packers will make about 'J per cent more profit than formerly on the best grades of meat. And prices, too, already were abnormally high. We must grin and bear it. I suppose, as there is little chance that the independent packers will come to our relief. They trail along at the heels of the big fellows." JURY FREES CASHIER BUTLER Official of Defunct Lockport Bank Ac quitted After Long Deliberation. Joliet. 111.. Oct. 1. A. H. Rutler, former cashier of the defunct Ex change bank at lockport, was acquit ted yesterday. The trial was notable from the fact that the defense offered no testimony, relying solely on legal arguments. The charge against Duller was that lie had received deposits, knowing the bank to be insolvent, and it was proved that both Hutler and the presi dent of the concern. C H. Racon, had speculated with the bank's funds on the Chicago Board of Trade. There are other indictments against both men, but it is believed now that convictions are improbable. The bank. which had 4ud depositors, failed a year ago for SiO.ii'iu to $7,", uod. One divi dend of 2." per cent has been declared bv the receiver.

BRIGHTER THAN IT WAS YEAR AGO Dunn's Trade Review Comments on Improving Conditions at First of Month. Xew York, Oct. 1. R. G. Dun in his weekly review of trade, says: The last quarter of 11)01 opens with much brighter prospects than prevail ed a year ago. At that time securities had fallen on an average of $:!! a share from the top point of the year previous, and tiiere was a general dis position to curtail manufacturing and coaiinvrcial operations because of the heavy losses. The natu n was enter ing on a period of conservatism, aug- enented by numerous luor controver- ies. ' At the present time there are no ila ruling features, strikes are few and unimportant, while indications or grow ing confidence are numerous.

It looks as If the La Follette people had won. The supreme court yesterday adjourned un til Oct. IS without filing a decision or doing anything at all in relation totho case. As the: matter stands now. Sec retary of Sia'e Houser is free to make up the official ballot as he pleases, and Mr. Ileuisor is a La Follette man. The surronie- court can still enter an order Oct. IS, and the last day on which any thing can be deme is Oct. 19. It does not liHik reasonable, however, thai it will do anything. With nonaction on tin- part of the- e-ourt the secretary of state is foot loose. Ililll.NcIf n i 'iiimII)iiI. Hi- is a candidate for reelection on the La Follette ticke t, and has frankly stated all along that should the court not interfere he would instruct the county clerks to put the La Follette ticket in the republican column. The secretary ef state, however, says In- is in no hurry to act in the matter. He has until Oct. in, and may wait until then to give the court a chance to give its decision. The fact that it has adjourned until Oct. IS without eloing anything is taken as good proof it will enter no de'eisiem at all. and Mr. House r can get to work as quickly as lie pleases. Attitude of C ourt In Duiilil. How the court stands in the matter cannot be said. The story that it is two and two generally is believed.

The story is not credited, bow ever, as a majority of the court prob ably would hninl down some ord r or decision. It is based on the argument that the ejthe-r jusiices desire to make file matte r unanimous when it is finally d -elded. Tile I. a Follette men are re joicing, while the "stalwarts" are tie presse !.
