A minor is current in this city tha't the Japanese sustained lieavy losses while attempt ing a lanuing near the mouth of the Talu river. According to Athe report, which Is said to be based upon a pri vate telegram from Port Arthur, the Japanese lost 7,000 men. An absolute official statement has not yet been ob tained. St Petersburg, April 23. In spite of the reports from Seoul and Toklo that the Russians are massing 50,000 men to resist the Japanese crossing the Yalu river It can be asserted with great positiveness that an obstinate obstruction of the enemy's crossing Is no part of General Kuropatldn's tactics. The Russians intend that the Japanese shall have the river behind them before giving battle in force. Kuropatkin's plans in this respect are fully approved here. Of course the Russians will do all in their power to render the crossing as difficult and expensive as possible, but , the first decisive engagement, will occur in Manchuria, where the Russians be lieve they will have all the advantage of position. . . ' The Japanese fleet is again reported to be off Port Arthur, but the report is not official. , Paris, April 23.

A letter written by Colonel Agapeef, nn officer of marines on me Petropav- lovsk, who was drowned, describes the routine upon the battleship.

Harrard, Yale, the change of the postofflce to a gta-1 Georgetown Pennsylvania, Columbia tlon of Naucratuck. The v Insneotor ' -. v.t.i .tion of Naugatuck. The who visited Naugatuck reported in fa , . 7 vor of making Union City a station, with authority to 'issue money orders, and sell stamps The only difference would be that no letters could be mail ed or received at the office, but to make up for this there would be two uenver ies a day and two collections. The order has, however, created such a furore that It has been rescinded for the present by the department. The result will probably be that Union City will not get free delivery for many years to come, unless some agreement can be reached. The re port of the inspector Is strongly against free delivery If. Union City is not made a sub-station,; and his report is decidedly against the carriers start ing from the Union City postofflce. In all matters of this kind the department will follow the report of the inspector, but they have agreed to wait and see what the people really want This Is the second time within a few years that an attempt has been made to secure , free deliverv for Union City. The first' time it was refused outright, and it looks now as though the attempt would fail again. The postofflce department has issued orders to establish a new postofflce at North . Hartland. The mails will be sent over to the new office from Hart land, a distance of three miles. Fred ij. Dutton has been appointed nost- master of the new office, and his com mission was issued by the department to-day.

Mr Burton, the chairman of the commit tee on rivers and harbo' s, is very mue'i put out over the action of the senate in adding a large number of a'mend lnents. As he feels to-day he will re fuse to call the bill up for a confer ence. If he does not change his mind the bill will die a natural death. HONORS FOR A FORMER BREAKER BOY Philadelphia, April 23.

Rocker was a hired man on Schrod er's farm and after Schroder's death he married the widow and obtained (Schroder's property.

"One day last September he fractur ed the skull of my boy by throwing a wrench at him," Mrs Schroder testi fied. "That night he came in at 2 o'clock. He slept uneasily. 1 Sudden ly he sat up and struck me in the face. His eyes were shut tight, f "Then he leaned close to my face and said in a hoarse whisper, 'August, now I've got you.' I was terribly frightened and got out of bed and waited till he awoke. Then I asked him why he said that. 'v He told me he had killed my husband, who I had al ways believed had committed suicide. "He told me that when they went to Doon, June 29, 1900, he bought some chloroform and . put it and morphine in whiskey. When they got home Au gust was taken sick and then Rocker strangled him and hung his body in the barn, where I found it. ' "When he told me this he put a re-, volver at my head and told me if 1 ever told he would surely kill me as he did August." CO G BARN DANCE. Biggest Event of the Season at the Armory Last Night.
