changes may Imply that there Is no

part to assume the offensive during
the 'ear'8 campaign unless an exceedingly -
Ingl favorable opportunity offers. Indeed -
deed It begins to loolt 111(0 a deadlock

Port Arthur falls or the Japanese

soult upon the fortress there and settle -
tie down to a regular siege , either of
which would relen o enough tr1011'J ' to
give the preponderance necessary to
try to force the Russians out of Mud
len. In fact , the latest dlspatch03
from the front indicate that some
i such move Is preparing , though the
best opinion nt the war office holds
to the vIew that there Is not likely
to bo another big battle this year , one
of the Indications pointed out being

has asked for reinforcements from
Casper , 'V'o. , 100 mites southeast of

received late Friday night ; stating
that Sheriff Webb and a large posse
had started for the scene. Fenton
and his men will do a little scouting
quietly to see that the outlaws do not
leave their hIdIng place before Webb

outlaws become alarmed and attempt
to leave the country , Sheriff Webb
will bo advised at Walton , Lost CabIn
lOr one of the smaller stations on
the telephone line , and an effort will

double back on their trail and es-
cape by the only other exit from the
hole , the route they followed in entering -

as Webb arrives and close In on the
bandits at once.
The officers here are completely
worn out , hut they are anxious for
