The government, not having means of- communication -with the , fortress, accepts them with reserve. The authorities generally believe' that the reported march of events in the front of Fort -Arthur is a little too ; rapid. The tension over the situation at the theater of war is manifestly increasing. 1 The general staff is becoming more re ticent and the public is convinced that an 'important battle which may decide the fate of the campaign is impending. The outpost engagements between the , main armies of Generals Kuropatkin and Kuroki have suddenly ceased. Sucn a lull frequently occurs after two armies havebeen for some time in touch and just before they already, to strike. Kuroki Has not yet hioved, according to the latest advices but is drawing in bis skirmishers as, ir pre paring to do so. Developments on the lower part of the Liao-Tung Pfninsula may determine when and where the two armies will come in collision. Ku ropatkin has elaborately fortified his position at Liao-Yarig, in anticipation of a possible forward movement o the part of Kuroki and the army land ed at Taku-Shan.v But Kuroki's failure to assume the aggressive and the. ap proach of the rainy season, which would stop operations, as well as the pressure to impede General Okus Smy. may have been determining fac fS to dispatching a force southward V0 strength of which is as mucna stery The Japanese apparently are nof averse to this advance paying readv withdrawn before it to beiow WMdSk If Kuroki should .rrnow push in behind this force. across the head of , the Liao-Tung pemnsu uro patkin. in the opinion of military ex neris with nothing to fear on, his flank, Fs certSto come down from the nor h Lna a decisive battle might occur in the -neighborhood of Ilai-Cheng.

Gardner of the state board of insanity, Boston, wag in Wa terbury to-day and made a call at the office of the department of charities, where he talked upon the immigra tion questioni with a Democrat report er. Air Gardner said that there are practically no Irish or other English speaking people ' coming) into Boston from the other side in search of em ployment and that very little common labor is being done in Massachusetts by others than Italians.- It used to be the Irish principally that did the digging, but they have gone higher and their places are filled by others. They have a good deal of trouble with Russian Polanders and many of them are, sent back at, the expense of the countries they -came from. Mr Gardner lives in Brockton and said that none but citizens nd tax payers are employed by the munici pality and that the minimum rate of wages paid is $2.25 for an eight hour day. This, of course, has noth ing to do with factories and contractors, although it is admitted the wage scale set by the cities have a great influence , in determining the price of ' labor In the stores and fac tories. This custom prevails in many towns in Massachusetts and appears to give general satisfaction. He was of the opinion 'that this was due largely to labor union efforts and thought that after . the ;WQi'kir4T .peoile, the union men especially, opened their ; eyes to the immigration question and paid proper attention to the law of supply and demand they would take a more aggressive stand in the matter, for he didn't see what the common laborer in this country was coming to if they kept pouring in from the other side and starting up housekeeping at' the rate of two or three hundred in shan ties and managing to live on ten cents a day unless business kept increasing many would have to remain idle 'and then there was sure to be real trouble. Mr Gardner: thought, however, that under the conditions that ' exist at the present time there is room 'and work enough for all. but he had no hesita tion in saying, that the trend of things all over the country, with thoughtful Americans, was towards & restriction of a certain class of immigration to our shores. - ' ' He is a bright, clever. appearing gen tleman, and while deploring the influx of undesirable elements. - was 'not at all displeased to know that the New England Yankee and others had given up digging, and turned the job over to men who like that kind of work. . He didn't consider it much of a sinecure to toil on the streets or in a i. ditch even at $2.25 for a work day of eight hours. , FOUND IN THE RIVER HANDS TIED TOGETHER New York; June 8!

The case of the Watertown Savings bank .for $10,000 against B. H. Mat toon and his bondsmen, his father, Henry, Emil C. Marggraff, and John Taylor will probably go to the superior court. Judge Peck of Bristol came down this morning to hear the case in the district court the local "judges having been considered disqualified, but at the last moment the. bondsmen offered to make some arrangement by which a settlement could be effected. It was accordingly decided that judg ment pro forma should be given the bank for $2,500 and that an appeal should be taken to the superior court. ' Though the suit is for $10,000, the amount of the shortage alleged against Mr Mattoon it was discovered after the suit was entered that another $200 could conveniently be added to , the discrepancy. .

I FRIEND OF THE MIMEE: Says It is Time to Call Off the StriKe Editor anc Owner of Official Organ of the Miners Mailcs a Plea 200 Union Men Already Under Arrest Thrcf More City Officials Among Them Twenty-Ei gh! Have Been Deported. Victor, , Ool, June - 8. The Record, i ownel and edited, by George E. Kyner, and r ecognized as the official organ Of the Western Federation of Miners in the Cripple Creek district, published an editorial to-day urging the miners to call off the strike. Inaugurated ten months ago, the article saying: ' "The sentiment is growing against the Western Federation of Miners on (nofniint n-P $fs fwn.t'rminir ths ctriko There are few people who believe that this organization of miners is responsi ble for the crimes that have been committed, here, except that if the strike had not been called and contin ued so long the dynamiting would not have occurred and in that respect the strike ig responsible for this outrage; whether there was justice in the call ing of It or not! In the interest of the men and women , who have made the. Cripple Creek district, the Record asks the Western Federation of Min ers to call off the strike. Miners liv ing in this ; district are losing their homes or; being obliged to go a Way and leave them.. None of them, when they express their convictions, as many of them have to the writer, be lieve there is any chance of . winning the strike, but that the longer it is kept going the" further they are awiay from securing work. They are not in a position to stand it much longer and the Record asks,; as labor's best and demonstrated friend through this hard struggle, that it- be .called off at once, or ? else ! people will either be forced to leave the federation or their homes. .-'. 1 - "The Record does not have the con fidence of the mine owners, ; of the military, or of the Citizens' alliance, and it makes this plea solely in the interest of the men and women of this district that are without work, with out food and who believe there is no hope of winning the strike and wiant it called off." Three more Victor city officials have been forced to resign. They are Jus tice of the Peace J. D. Thomas , and Aldermen X W. Murphy and J. J. To- bin.

Records of the un ions hate been seized whenever found and are under examination , for the purpose of ' securing evidence showing that unions or some of their officers have participated In or approved of crimes that have been committed. In addition to the unearthing of about thirty group photographs of non-union workmen at various mines, which were concealed in a heap of rubbish in the Victor union office, it Is alleged that in the office ,of the pitman union were found quantities of electrical fuses and batteries to produce explo sions. ':'. Tall of lynching ;' or violence , , has subsided to a degree! though If the man who exploded the Infernal ma chine in Independence killing 15 men should be captured, it is doubtful whether any military force could pro tect him from the vengeance of the friends of the murdered men. The man who killed Roxie McGee at the mass meeting here on Monday has positively been identified by an eye witness of the shooting and al though he has not been captured .it is believed he cannot escape.! ' No further deaths have been report ed among those wounded in the explo sion and riots of Monday. DEPORTED MINERS ARRIVE AT DENVER DenveT, Col, June 8.
