RUSSIA IN BAD BOX WHAT BALFOUR SAYS ''Staling of Knight Commander is Breach of Interna tional Law St. Petersburg Press Comments on the Turn the War Has TaKen Formal Notice or Protest About SinUing of the Knight Commander Not Yet Received. London, July 27. That the British government regards the sinking of the sttamer Knight Commander as a breach of international law "was con firmed by Premier Balfour in the house cf commons this afternoon. Answer ing questions regarding the destruction of the Knight Commander and the seizure of the Malacca and other ves sels, the premier said he hoped to be "in a position to make a brief statement regarding the Malacca to-morrow. As to the sinking of the Knight Comman der, he "regretted that information which reached me this morning con. firmed this regrettable occurrence." Mr Balfour added: "There is no ques tion of loss of life, but I am afraid there Is a question of a breach of in ternational law." RUSSIAN PRESS SILENT. St Petersburg, July 27. The Rus sian press has been significantly si lent for two days past regarding com plications over the acts of the Red sea cruisers. Not a single word of comment is in this morning's news papers concerning the sinking of the British steamer Knight Commander, and there is no doubt that the govern ment has requested the papers to re frain from printing their views on the affair. The government depre cates the provocative attitude of the British press and probably does not desire that the Russian papers shall add fuel to the flames. An imperial ukase has been issued placing seven merchantmen' purchas ed abroad during the last few months on the navy list, four of them as sec ond class cruisers. These four have been rechristened Don, Ural, Terek and Kouban. The other three have been renamed Irtysh, Anadyr and Ar gun and are listed among the trans -.ports. The former identity of these vessels is not revealed. There is rea son to believe that the cruisers will be sent at once to the Red sea to re place the volunteer fleet steamers, the war status of which is in dispute. . The lack of press comment is note worthy. Even while the British are calling for the most energetic action against Russia some of the Russiau papers calmly continue to dwell upon the advantages of a Rusao-British un derstanding. The Russian government has not received through the American em bassy here any representations on the subject of the sinking of the Knight Commander or the capture of the Arabia or other vessels having American goods on board. Great Britain also has not yet made a for mal protest, but there is reason to be lieve that the general right of war ships to sink neutral vessels claimed to have contraband on board is being discussed here and in Loudon and the seriousness of, such acts win be em phasized in the presentation of the specific case of the Knight Command er. It may be that there will be con siders ble delay on account of the lack of information upon which to make issue, as both the British crew and passengers of the Knight Command er, it :s asserted here, are held as wituesfes on board the vessels form ing . the Vladivostok squadron. to-day confirming the occupation of Ta tchikiao by the Japanese on July 25, and adding that a Japanese division had moved on Haicheng. FORMOSA RELEASED. Buez, July 27. The Peninsular and Oriental Steamship Co's steamer For mosa, which was captured in the Red sea by the volunteer fleet steamer Smolensk, and which arrived here yes terday flying the Russian naval flag and with a prize crew on board, has been released. The Hamburg-American line steamer Holsatia, which ar rived" this morning, also having on board a prize crew, has likewise been released. The Holsatia was last- report ed at Barry, July 5, for Port Said. The Formosa sailed to-day, to con tinue her voyage eastward. In accordance with instructions from Berlin all German steamers bound east are furnished by the Russian consul here with a free pass for the Red sea, in case they should meet Russian war vessels. FORMAL PROTEST ENTERED. Washington, July 27. The state de partment has finally received a formal protest against the action of the Rus sian navy in seizing American goods, and as the result of ,a preliminary study of the la"W and precedents on the question, it is prepared to act energetically and promptly. This pro test relates to the seizure of an Amer ican cargo on board the Hamburg American seamer Arabia, bound from Portland o Hong Kong, China. J. H. Mitchell, an attorney of Portland, stated that he l'epresented the Port land Mills Co. which shipped on t Arabia for Hona Kong 99,000 sack: flour valued at $100,000. He declared that the flour was in no way contra band for it was not destined for Ja pan and it was part of the normal trade of the company and was not a war order. Mr Mitchell requested the state department to take the necessary steps to secure indemnity for the own ers of the flour and also to prevent at tacks on nautral trade in the Red sea or elsewhe5. The department offlc ials positively decline to say what steps will be taken. . ? i CONDITION AT PORT ARTHUR Llaoyang, July 27 A Russian cor respondent of the Associated Press who has just arrived here aftor two months' stay at Port Arthur gives an important and interesting narra tive of the situation at the beleaguer ed fortress when he left there July which shows that the Japanese opera tions till then had not advanced so far 'as supposed Several Russian successes are chronicled, but the re port of a Japanese reverse, with the loss of 30,000 men, is definitely dis posed of, not being even mentioned by the correspondent, who says: "When I put to sea in a junk the land position on the Russian right flank, surounding Green and Sema phore hilfs, which the Russians had lost, had been recaptured by assault. The heights of Huinsin, which the Japanese defended desperately, alone remained in their hands But I am convinced that this position also hag since been taken The very morning of my departure, July 14, the position was being bommbarded by six-inch howitzers and shells were falling repeatedly into the Jsgajioso "To sum up, by the fighting of July third, fourth and fifth when evidently the Russian forces were acting on the offensive, the Rus sians regained on the land side the po sitions they had held in front of the fortress previous to the battle of Kin chou. "The main force of the besiegers are, on the average, at a distance of twenty miles from the perimeter of the fort ress on the Russian right, but the Jap anese have approached to within twelve miles on the Russian left. So far as Inchentse station (fourteen miles from Port Arthur) the railroad is working. Over fourteen miles of Japanese, be tween 40,000 and 50,000 men, are op erating before Port Arthur. . The troops maintain a constant exchange pf skirmishing fire, but the field or other guns are usually silent. Tne Japanese apparently are conducting a slow, engineering advance. Often in the morning the Russians discover fresh trenches. The Japanese are compelled to abandon this work in the daytime as the Russians regularly open fire on them as soon as daylight discloses the work. The activity of the Japanese at sea is confined almost exclusively to nocturnal raids on the part of the tor pedo boat destroyers and torpedo boats, and the sowing of mines and the attacking of guard boaits. Sel dom does a night pass without, firing from the shore batteries. The at tacks on the guard ships are easily discovered by the Russian 'searchlights and so soon as fire is opened on the Japanese they make off. There are also occasional cannonades by day, when the proteced cruiser Novik and the guard ships put to sea to reconnoitre." RUSSIAN STATEMENT Constantinople, July 27. The Rus sian statement to the effect that ves sels of the volunteer fleet hereafter will not be permitted to operate for war purposes is regarded in Turkish official circles as settling the question of their passage through the Darda nelles. It is held that as tney will only have the status of merchantmen there is no reason to refuse them per mission to traverse the straits as lieretofore. The British cruiser Lancaster is still off the entrance of the Dardanelles. ATTACKED TATCHEKIAO. Tokio, July 27. The army of Gen eral Oku, combined with what is known as the Takushan forces, at taeked Tatcheklao Sunday night and on Monday captured all the important topographical keys. The Ru-TSlan forces consisted of five divisions. The losses are- unknown JAPS LOST 800. Tokio, July 27. The Japanese casu alties before Tatchekiao were 800. KUROPATKIN CONFIRMS IT. St Petersburg, July 27. A telegram 4f v nnrai Kuropatkin was received RUSSIAN FLAG COMES DOWN. Algiers July 27. Af ter a protracted conference on board the Malacca be tween the British and Russian consuls and Captain Schwartz, commander of the prize crew, it was announced that the Russian flag would be replaced by ithe British at 6 o'clock this evening. The order to surrender the Malacca was a complete surprise to Captain Schwartz, who had orders to take her to Libau. . , SHOWED NO COLORS. Perim, Red Sea, July 27.

MAN WITH A FIT Frightened Girl to Death Terrorized Hen in Saloon and ChoKed Motorman. Philadelphia, July 27. Seized with a fit, Joseph Heiser went on a rampage through Andalousia, on the Bristol pike. He frightened a little girl to death, terrorized the barroom of the Red Lion Inn, smashed furniture at his home, and ended by throttling a motorman on a passing trolley car, who finally succeeded in overpowering Heiser and turning him over to the police. Six-year-old Marian Rankin was the victim of Heiser's dementia. The child had always stood in terror of Heiser, and she fled in fright to her mother whenever she saw him. When he, Waving his arms in the air and screaming at the top of his voice, ran toward her in front of the Rankin home, the little girl started to escape from him, but before she had gone a dozen feet she was overcome with ter ror and fell unconscious in the road way. She died a few moments after-wards. ROOSEVELT'S RECEPTION. Many Guests Present at Notification ! Meeting To-Day. Oyster Bay, L. I., July 27.

Adjutant-General Cole has issued an order which gives a .communication received from H. O.'Heistand, colonel and assistant adjutant-general at the headquarters of the Atlantic division. The communication states that the commanding general of the division desires to invite the attention of com manding officers of all the troops ex pecting to take part in the maneuvers near Manassas, Va, September 4 to 10, to the great importance of a thorough knowledge of the duties of advance and rear guards, outposts, reconnais sance work, and to the formations tot attack and defense. These formations, and discussions thereon, may be found in the authorized Security and Information, Wagner, and in the In fantry Drill Regulations, U. S. army. The communication states that it is of the greatest importance that all of ficers and non-commissioned officers should be instructed in the ground work, formations and principles, in order that they may, when the occasion arises, know how to take or vary from the normal order of things. Outposts, advance and rear guards, for the for mations, etc, cannot be made the sub ject of hard and fast drill rules; that in almost every instance the regular normal formations will in part have to be changed and varied to accom plish the results. No one is so well quolifted to make proper modifications as the officer or non-commissioned of ficer who is a thorough master of tne normal order of formations, and the rules governing each. J. S.

This is an aftermath of the riot which occurred on the Long Hill baseball grounds on last Saturday, when the employes of the above departments of Scovill's fac tory were having a ball game. When Mark Warner wiho owns the ball grounds where the brawl occurred, read about the fight, his indignation knew no bounds. He has been op posed to ball playing on his lots for some time and has often forbidden teams to play tthere.

LARD ON FIRE. Commotion in the Chicago StocK Yards Caused by a Lively Blaze. Chicago, July 27. Fire broke out among the packing houses in the stock yards to-day in the lard refinery of Swift & Co, and soon gained such headway that every available fixe en gine in the stock yards district Was called out. Rumors of Incendiarism were rife. Examination, however, showed the cause of the blaze to have been an overheated dynamo. The building, 150 by 250 feet and three stories' high, was filled with tierces of lard, many of which exploded, spread ing the burning, grease in every direc tion. Louis P. Swift was on the ground and directed the firemen in their attempts to reach the blaze. The firemen were hampered by num bers of cattle and sheep which were being driven along Exchange avenue, the main thoroughfare of the stock yards. The flameg threatened a number of buildings near by, but the firemen managed to keep the flames from spreading. , Thousands of strikers attempted to get near the burning building, but as soon as tne police arrived ropes were spread, blocking the street for three squares away. No crowds were al lowed to pass through streets near the buildings. The top story of the build ing was wood and burned like tinder. The contents of the building were said to be, valued at $400,000. THE BOY LIED. v : - j& Told Officers Pitiful Tale His Father Told Different One. Nicholas Fishcatt. a boy of 10 years of age, from New York, was found weepinsr and wailingr at the Naueratuck station last night by Officer Stevens, to whom he told la very strange story. He said that his mother died about a week ago and that on the day follow ing he was kidnapped by a man, who brought him to Waterbury on the train. The man left him sitting in the waiting room of the Naugatuek station, stating that he would be back in a few minutes, but he didn't re appear. Since then the boy has been wandering about the streets begging for food and sleeping in barns and wagons and other places. This is the story he told tht officer and also to Captain Bannon. when he was brought to the police station. The boy was turned over to Superintendent Combel- lack of the Boys' club. Mr Combel- lacfc sent a telegram to the boy's fath er in Brooklyn, N. Y., and the latter came here to-day. He told a story far different from that of the boy. After the death of Mrs Fishcatt, the boy's aunt, who lives in this city, agreed to take care of the boy and brought him to her home In this city last Thursday. He has been living with her since that time, bitt T& aflTHW "fM mtematf so well as New York and has been stay ing away from his new home. The father decided to take the boy back to New York. , LIBERALS GAIN SEAT. Won a Victory in the Bye Election Yesterday. London, July . 27.

NON-UNION TEAMSTERS 1 CONFINED TO ONE STREET Chief of Police O'Neill ThinKs It Will be Easier to Quell Disturbances Wagons Sent Out Loaded To- Day The Vehicles Were Disguised in New Coat of! Paint and With High Sideboards Forewoman HoM bed by Girls This Horning. Chicago, July 27. To minimize the danger of rioting, should the packing companies attempt to deliver meat to local customers with non-union -teamsters, Chief -of -Police O'Neill has given instructions that hauling shall be done on Halsted street. The chief declares that all teamsters .will be protected from violence, but to make this possi ble the hauling must be confined to one street, which will be strongly pa trolled. The order calling out the packing house teamsters affects many other drivers as well. Those employed on market and grocery delivery wagons, trucks, tallow and bone wagons, bak ery, ice and express wagons are pro hibited from handling any goods for packing plants. While it Is said to be the intention of the packers to ship practically all the meat to outside points by rail and make no effort to take care of the by-products, the strik ers expect to cause them much incon venience by shutting off supplies of all kinds as far as possible. Nine wagons loaded with meat were sent out to-day from the Schwarschild & Culzberger plant at the stockyards. The wagons had been repainted, the lettering removed, high sides placed on them and covered with tarpaulin as a disguise. They were escorted from the yards by a dozen policemen, who were relieved by another detail to guard them on their way to the north side of the city. Fire, tumult and picketing con tributed to stirring scenes at the stock yards to-day. While the packers were slaughtering stock as much as possi ble under the circumstances. Amid all the warlike demonstrations were re ports of plans for another peace con ference between the packers and the striking butchers. Members of the state board of arbitration appeared in ttle office of President Donnelly to-day and held a conference with the labor leaders. The strike situation was gone over thoroughly and the arbitrators then left the office to seek a conference with the packing Interests. Kitty English, forewoman in the sew ing department of Swift & Co's plant, was mobbed by girl sympathizers to day. They beat her with their fists, tore her clothes and finally slashed her face with a knife. No arrests were made, . ? , , une stock yara teamsters-jomea tne packing employes to-day. Seven hun dred of the drivers for the packing company refused to. go to work and ordered the workmen of every other department to make no delivery to the stock yards. AT WORK LN BOSTON.

VEGETABLE PEDDLER SHOUTED TOO LOUD David Albert, a peddler of vegeta bles, was arrested in the south end this morning by Officer Donahue because he was shouting his wares in the street and thus violating a city ordi nance and also making himself a nui sance to the residence in the south end. Peddlers of all kinds used to have the habit of exercising their lungs every day by yelling out their goods in the street and shouting at the top of their voices. But after several arrests had been made and heavynines were inflicted the yelling by peddlers practically stopped. But lately one or two peddlers have tried to revive the odious habit, but the police are deter mined to stop it. CONDITION FAVORABLE. Rockland, Me, July 27.
