Besiegers at Port Arthur Driv- en Back With Loss. f THOUSANb JAPS HORS DE CQMBAT luagian Battleship Orel Had Narrow Escape-Bojcntyr Wrecked at Vlad ivostokRelief Train Reach- ei Port Arthur, ( ' LONDON, May 23. A thousand Jap anese soldiers were killed or wounded in a" sortie made by General Stoessel's forces at Port Arthur, according to ad . vices received by the officials at St. Petersburg. c ' The battleship Orel, it was reported from the Russian capital, was badly damaged on her way to Cronstadt and narrowly escaped sinking. The story, of the Bogatyr's wreck finds credence In St. Petersburg despite official de nials, and it was reported from Kobe that she had been destroyed. Skirmishes took place north of Taku $fran, a Russian troop of cavalry sus taining heavy loss south of Fengwang cheng and north of Wonsan. The movements of General Kurokl's army remain a puzzle to the Russians. ' i A St. Petersburg dispatch says Gen eral Stoessel has made a successful sortie from Port Arthur, resulting in the defeat of the Japanese, with the loss of over a. thousand killed or wounded. The news has been received by the government. Details of the at tack are conflicting, and the. following account must be accepted with re serve:' ' V' ' ."The movement was carried out in combination with a train bringing iu war munitions and supplies and Gen eral Stoessel's force, communications being maintained by wireless telegra phy. The Japanese barred the route between the train and General Stoes sel's force, whereupon the Russians at tacked and .routed the Japanese. After the engagement General Stoessel's force, with the train, returned to Port Arthur.' ., ; General Stoessel, it is said, made a new distribution of his guns before hand in order to cover the force taking part in the sortie. The Russian troops fought . with ' the greatest bravery, breaking the Japanese line and driving back the troops for a considerable dis tance. ' , The Russians at Port Arthur, are in a desperate frame of mind, and they have made their desperation an excuse to sow the whole strait of Pechili with floating blockade mines. Not only have these diabolical ma chines been placed .off their own shores and in their own waters, but. it is reported that launches and Junks have been sent out to drop mines at, night or in fogs in waters likely to be used by the Japanese warships and transports. ' . " These mines have drifted Into the high seas and Chinese waters, where they constitute the gravest danger to J neutral ships. Several of them have i been seen near Weihalwei. ; , t . In . spite' of the continued denials from the Russian admiralty reports from Russian sources persistently re peat that the Russian protected cruiser Bogatyr is on the rocks near Vladivos- j tok. Her exact position is not reported, : but Rear Admiral Jessen is making ' determined efforts to save her, with good chances of success. j A Vladivostok report says Vice Ad- , miral Skrydloff arrived there - t 4:30 , o'clock yesterday afternoon, lie' was met at the Okeanski station, thirteen . miles outside' Vladivostok, by Major i General Voronetx and deputations of the military, naval and municipal au- 1 thorities and was presented with bread and salt 1 Entering the town, the ad miral drove to the pier, escorted by Cossacks, and boarded the cruiser.

The chaplain sprinkled and blessed the admiral's flag before it was run up to the masthead, where it was greeted with a salute from all the "cruisers in the harbor. The admiral addressed the officers and crew of the Rossia, say ing: ? v "The emperor orders me to convey bis greeting and loyal thanks for your gallant services, in , consideration of which he reduces your tour of sea duty to three years." A St. Petersburg . report says that Viceroy Alexeieff tendered his resigna tion to the emperor, giving ill health as the reason for hls.desire to be relieved, but that the emperor persuaded him iu a gracious telegram to remain at his post. '. . During a reconnoissance of Port Ar thur made by Admiral Togo a shell hit the torpedo boat destroyer Akatsuki, killing one officer and twenty-four men. St. Petersburg reports say General Kuropatkin has sent the following tel egram to Emperor Nicholas: "From reports received I have con cluded , that the first Japanese army is concentrated as follows: Two divi sions at Fengwangcheng and its en virons and one divisions at Habalin, halfway between Siuyen and Feng wangcheng. It is stated that Feng wangcheng is being fortified." - Freight Traffic Tied Up. ,. NEW YORK, May 23. - Although traffic between New York and New England is almost at a standstill, offi cials of the New York, New Haven and Hartford Railroad company here declared that ; they would not dream of discharging William McCarthy, an assistant foreman on the Fall River line pier, whose retention precipitat ed a strike of freight handlers. Since the strike began the International Freight Handlers' and Warehouse men's union has formulated new de mands, but it is generally agreed that McCarthy remains the main bone of contention.

Writh Interest Accrued t " ' . ; .' . By WILLIAM McLEOD RAINE (Copyright, 1804, by Dally Story Pub. Co.) , TT WAS the night of the- battle. A 1 young man, one might better say a boy, crawled wearily to the rail fence against which two armies had charged and', recharged in their efforts to dis lodge each other earlier in the day. The lad pulled himself with difficulty to the top rail, rested there a minute in the shine of the moon, then slipped into jthe shadow of the woods beyond. He went painfully, with a drag to one of his legs that told of a wound. Once in the woods, he came on a little huddle of dead men where a screaming shell had exploded and worked havoc. He passed the grim sight without the least emotion, for in the past 24 hours his ca pacity for feeling had been strained to the limit. ' . For some miles he followed a cow path through the woods,' which took a gradual rise, that led towards the hills. The forest opened to a large clearing, near the front of which was a big, ramb ling southern house. From the windows a cheerful light cut into the gloom of the night. The young man looked at it wistfully, ; envying , those within the good cheer and comfort they were en Joying. He was cold and stiff, and the throbbing pain of his wound had sapped not p. little at his nerve. He knew of a homestead up in Illinois .where the lights were shining at that moment, where his mother and his younger brothers sat about the fireplace, and re "membered'the father and the son who had answered their country's'' call to arms. A great wave of homesickness swept over the lad, and he leaned against a tree and gave way to his self-pity. ; It must have been some minutes later that there came to him an intangible sense of another presence. He slewed his head round, then swung his body with pistol in hand. But, the weapon was quite unnecessary for defense, since those who " gazed at him were only a girl and a child clinging to her hand. The girl was perhaps 18, and the other a lad of about nine. They looked at him with grave concern, taking in with big eyes the young1 man's haggard face and disheveled appearance. Then after a silence. "You.aYank?" asked the child. "Yes," returned the. man In the blue uniform. . v "Ain't you feelin' peart, Yank?" The young man summoned rather a wan smile. "Not very. ' I'm about tuck ered out." .. ' . ) ' "You were in the fight. You're wound ed," cried the girl, with eyes dilated. f "My wound isn't much, but it has grown stiff." . "You must have It attended to. You must come to the house," she cried, im pulsively. He stared; but she waited for no answer. "Can you walk?" she demanded. . It was several seconds before he spoke. "I guess I'll not go to the house." "Not come to the house? Why, of course, you will. If you can't walk, I'll send the boys for you." : Her quick insistence, her sweet south ern intonation, were both charming to him, but he did not care to risk a rebuff by her people. . ' v ; "You forget I'm a Yank." "No, I don't . When you are well I'll hate you, because I hate all Yanks. But now you're sick. I reckon I don't hate any sick people." "But your people?'! he suggested. "I reckon my people have got hearts," she said, Indignantly. "Come along, Yank," said the boy. "My name's Willie Moseby. Her's is Rowena. What's yours?" "Robert Shively," returned the Yank, limping along with them toward the house. . Rowena noted for a minute the. dif ficulty with which he walked. "You might lean -on me," she urged, presently. "And sowith a hand on the shoulder of the friendly enemy, Shively limped to the hcuse of Capt. Moseby, of the Third Arkansas confederate volunteers. It is possible that Mrs. Moseby was not. exactly delighted at first to have a wounded Yankee foisted on her hospi tality by her impu'sive daughter, but her motherly heart soon warmed to his forlornness. She would not hear of his leaving next day, but with southern warmth insisted on his remaining till he was quite rested and. recovered. The war had denuded them of many of the comforts of life, but the best they had they lavished on him. In order to avoid the chance of detection, they fitted out V the young man with an old suit of Capt. Moseby's. , . . It was several days later that a young confederate cavalry officer rode up to this house and swung from his horse with a shout. The negroes came grin ning around him to relieve him of his, horse and to appropriate his good hu mored jests at their expense. From the house Master Willie ran out with a rush, and Rowena and her mother came in a more dignified fashion to the porch to welcome him, the former blushing very prettily. With ' the household in gen eral sunny Dick Harville, lieutenant of scouts in Melville's rangers, was a de cided favorite; with Miss Rowena he was much more than that ' Robert Shively, watching her from the rear, feared that it was all up with the hopes that had grown so rapidly in his heart during the past week. This dash ing young lieutenant of scouts had pre empted the claim he wanted to take up. Harville recognized in the other a more than , possible rival, but he met him cordially, except for the swift chal lenge of his eyes. "Glad to know you, Mr. Shively. I see by your limp you've got a furlough." The confederate was referring to his wound. "May I ask what regiment you belong." ' " "Ninth Illinois infantry," replied Shively, with prompt hostility. ; ' Harville did not wink an eyelash at this astonishing information. "Oh, 1 see. Got your furlough,, I suppose, in1 that little tussle we had with you down by the Walker mill last week?" The Yank nodded. "I was heading for the hills when Miss Moseby's kind- ness captured me,'he explained. ' "I reckon you're not pining any about being a prisoner, are you?" suggested the confederate lieutenant. ' . "I'm trying to bear up under it," agreed the other. "Well, there are worse prisons, and you are likely to help fill one of them if you, tell every gray uniform you see that you belong to the what d'ye call 'em Illinois infantry,"' Harville told him, carelessly. That afternoon the four young, peo ple went out after pecans. Since Har ville was to leave that evening, the Yank thought it only fair to draw Willie away from them in order to give the lieutenant a chance to see her alone. Willie and he picked for an hour or more, then drifted back toward where they had left the others. The young northerner was some yards in advance, and as he picked his way through the brush he saw something tha brought him to an abrupt halt! Harville. held Rowena in his arms and was kiss ing her. The girl's charming face was, upturned to hla in a rapture of love. , ; Shively turned and made a pretense of calling Willie, so as to apprise them of his approach. When they broke out of the thicket upon the lovers Rowena's long eyelashes were cast shyly down over her happy black eyes, but Lieut. Harville smiled boldly across at the union private in a bpyish triumph which had wiped out his dislike: He left that evening, an ac cepted lover, and an hour later Shively said b is good-byes and slipped away into the night. !';' ;'. His heart wound was not by any means incurable, and some years later Shive ly married a young woman from his own town. He moved to another state, and made a reputation as an able and com petent lawyer that soon became more than local. Political preferment came to him. He was successively congress man, governor, United States' senator and a member of the president's cabinet' His head grew gray with years and care, and except for very rarely no thought of ' Rowena Moseby ever came to his mind. He knew that she had married a Col. Harville, and he had no doubt that It was the lieutenant of that name whom he had known. ; ; , ' v Forty years after the war had closed his niemory was jolted Into recollection.5 In a newspaper he came across a state ment that Mrs. Rowena Harville was an applicant for the place of postmistress of the town of Moseby, and that her ap plication was backed by nearly every body in the town. The item went on to say that her husband was now an in valid and that, having lost their prop erty, she was now his sole support. That afternoon Robert Shively called on i the president, and told as much of the story as he could. Mrs. Harville was a democrat, but he asked for the ap pointment which she wanted. That day he had the pleasure of writing Mrs. Harville that her appointment as post niistress of the town of Moseby had been sent to the senate for" confirmation. There was rejoicing' in the home of one pair of old lovers In Arkansas that afternoon, for they drifted from poverty to comparative affluence by a good deed of one of them which, after 40 years, had come back with interest accrued. DEATH rOPHECY FULFILLED Aged Woman Declares Last Day Hai Come, Dons Burial Robe '. and Dies. ' ' ' With a presentiment that she woulii die, Mrs. Anna C. Paul, aged 80 years, donned her burial robes at her home in Ocosta, Wash., the other day and a few hours later passed peacefully away. Mrs. Paul had told her children sev eral days befpre that she would die on that particular day. That morning she arose at an early hour and told her sons that it would be her last day on earth. She proceeded to array herself in a neat black dress, which she had made the day before, and In which she requested to be buried. After kissing the members of her family farewell she laid down in her room, and, folding her arms, fell Into a peaceful sleep. Her sons allowed her to slumber an hour, but when they ap proached the bedside they were as tounded to find that she was dead. Mrs. Paul was a native of Germany, and leaves a husband and two sons.
