According to Tuesday's dispatches,

news of the destruction of the Japanese

although there are signs that 011 both
skies the supply of ammunition is falling
short and that the limit of endurance
of the troops must have been
nearly reached.
Advices from Mukden state that tho
army is so near that, the environs of
tho city have been depopulated. All
Mukden are filled with refugee native
fic. Tho roads south and southwest of
Mukden are fllledw ith refugee nutiv-3
families, trailing homeless toward the
sorry streets ol Mukden.
The fighting of October 17 was confined
to the Russian center at Slianto
river, and was mostly artillery fire,
the Japanese using big guns and lush
explosive shells. During nine days of
the fighting the losses were never less
than 2,000 per day. The hospitals are
hardly able to handle I ho wounded
Nevertheless they performed wonders. |
The Chinese have deserted all the villages
and the troops are using the
wood \york of their houses for fuel.
too country south Is desolated. Tho
Japanese still seem to lie exert ins
themselves to force the Russians out
of Mukden. A battle is assured in the
positions surrounding the town.
It becomes more and more evident
lhat the resources of the country cannot

General Kuropatkin remains with

Murdering Negro.
A Columbia, S. C., dispatch nays:
| Four months ago Kitl Bookurd, a no
gro, was lynched at Eutawville, IJcrke
!y county. The man was so brutally
butchered in cold blood and without
provocation that Governor 1 Icy ward j
recognized it as a case in which a test)
of the law could best bo made. When
the local authorities failed to discover
the perpetrators, tho governor employed
two Pinkerton men and these,
j under tho direction of an oflicer of the
, agency, have been engaged for throe
I months with tho result that on Mon,
day J. II. Palmer, S. A. Eadon. Pink
Martin, It. Martin and A. Puuler were
arrested and placed in tho peniten;
tiary at Columbia for safe keeping,
tho 13erkely jail being insecuro.
Three days ago a young man implicated
in tbe killing, witness for the
Male, was brought in aud is also con
t fined. Warrants were at once issued
for six men, all who participated in
. the lynching of Bookavd.
Tuesday night the solicitor telegraphed
the governor he could not sol

men sent from Charleston and stout!
ready to send a company of soldiers
if there was resistance.
Five of the six men were taken Wed
nesday and the others will probably
j he captured. Iiookard was taken from
the guard house in Eutawville, lied
