MAO TANO. Saturday. May 14. (Delayed
In transmission.) Th Russlsn fleet scored
Ita first distinct aucreaa of the war on May
10 by the torpedoing and crippling, though
Dot the alnklng, of an armored Japanese
cruder In Tallen Wan ba.
The Russian attack waa carefully planned
on May 10. while the Japanese squadron
waa concentrated outside Dalny, devoting
Ita attention to Tallen Wan bay and waa ear
rlea1 out the aame night. The attacking
fere waa not a regular torpedo boat, but
waa only a email naphtha launch in com
mend of young naval officer, who had
with him three Jackie. The launch
meunted a email machine gun and tarried
When darkness fell the launch crept out
of Port Arthur, hugging the shore with
no lights aboard and no glow from the
engines to betray Its presence. It waa late
. when It gained the outer line of the Japa
nese squadron. Slipping through the tor
pedo boat pickets and selecting the nearest
warship, a big armored cruiser. It stole
toward It and succeeded In exploding
.'against Ita side a single torpedo. A deafen
'. Ing roar followed the explosion, which
echoed far ashore. Immediately flame en
"veloped the cruiser, which evidently wis
Tha crew of the cruiser waa seen to be
'fighting the Are, which they at laat suc
' reeded In extinguishing. A sister ship took
the damaged veasl In tow and disappeared
to the southeast. The launch escaped the
hot fir directed against It by the Japanese
ships, but being unable to return to Port
Arthur or to get Into Dslny, It waa beached
not fat1 from Dalny.
Only a few of the higher officers were
ware of the plan, the success of which de
pended ' on secrecy. The achievement
ralaad tha spirits of the Russians afloat and
ashore, and the young naval officer, who
waa the hero of the exploit, waa feted and
recommended for the cross of 8t. George.
' The 'Russians on May 11, apprehending
that tha presence of a Japanese squadron
meant an attempt to capture Dalny, blew
up tha plera and quietly evacuated the
place. Two thousand Japanese have reoc
cupled the road to Sanchlllpu again cutting
off Port Arthur. A strong force Is advan
cing against Polandlen.
Chinese bandits are becoming bolder and
are causing considerable trouble to the
Russian outposts. A swarm of the bandits
at noon on May 13 attacked the coal
mines on the branch Una east of Yantal
station, ten miles north of Llao Yang, the
mines which supply the whole railroad
were guarded by 200 riflemen and 100 Cos
sack. In a fierce fight the Russians repelled
the bandit and then charged them, the
bandits fleeing to the hill and to neigh
boring villages. The troops surrounded
the village and demanded tha surrender
of the bandits. The surrender was at
flrat refused, but fearing that the Rus
sian would destroy their home the vil
lagers finally revealed the hiding places
of tha fugitives. The bandits fought with
the desperation of entrapped rats and fifty
of them were speared and killed. The
Russians suffered no loaa.
,- Among seventeen prisoner taken by the
troopa were two Japanese officers, who
had eacaped from the Russians.

MOUNTAINEERS NEVER TOUCH RANGERS
Despite C'eastaat Rala Nearly Three
Tfcoasanal rata Bee Pep Eyler
Fall Before the I-oeal
Did It ralnt
Did Omaha and Denver play ball Just
Did the rain make any trouble for Pas
boys In making three etrstght from the
men from the hills?
Well, not enough so you' would notice
And Is Pop Eyler such much, after all?
Not according to the latest advice from
the seat of war. 1 .
The fact that nearly 1,009 people went to
the Vinton atreet grounda yelterday after
noon. In the rain and sat through eight
Innings of a ball game ahows Pa Rourke
what he may expect In the line of support
from hi home town so long as the quality
of the ball that'he furnishes keeps up to
the standard of that of. the last few daya.
If It had not rained it I safe to aseert
that the attendance would have been
nearer 10.000 than 8.000. Those who did go
were more than repaid for the chances they
took and the discomforts they endured.
In spite of tho wet ball and the wetter
grounds the game was high class In every
particular. McCarthy was oq the slab for
the home tesm and made good In a way
that more than surprised his most ardent
admirer. For six red hot Innings he held
the mighty men from the mountains down
to one little scratch hit and no runs, gav
only one baae on balls and smoothed over
the muffing of two long flies by Dusty
Miller In the second and third Innings, re
spectively. To be sure, every man on the
tesm wss all over the ground and the
two error by Miller were made on two
desperate chances that a leea ambitious
player might not have taken and none
missed had the ground been dry.
Hard to Pitch In Rain.
By the time the seventh Inning wa on
the grounds and balls were In such a con
dition thst the best pitcher In the world
would have msde sn occasional foosle and
then they touched McCarthy for three scat
tering hits, Including a twe-bagger by Hal
lam, that netted them ope run. Eyler
made another In the visitors' half of the
eighth that; was thrown away and then
I'mplre Keefe called the game. -
In the third Inning Shlpke started the
music by .lamming It over to the right
pasture for three bags. -Johnny Gondlng
followed this with a single to center, but
died on second on McCarthy' attempted
sacrifice to Eyler.' Then foxy Nick waited
and walked and Dusty Miller squared him
self with the fan by slamming It down
Into the green gras In Ketcham' diatrlct.
sending two men over the plate, Shlpke
having scored on Gondlng' hit. ' Harry
Welch tried but was; thrown out from third,
ending the Inning.' In the next Jack
Thomas got the fever and leaned up against
the first one that Eyler "sent hta way.
When the ball got back from center Jackie
wa sitting on the third cushion and scored
a moment later on Eyler' wild pitch. Dolan
made hi customsry hit and he, Welch and
Howard divided the fielding honors.

PAPILLION, Neb., May 15.-(SpeclaI.)-
By order of the county board H. D. Pat
terson was appointed to Investigate Sarpy
county bridge affairs, to obtain the amount
of levies collected for bridge purposes, th
expenditures, the cost of bridges, their
quality ns compared with other counties,
the legality of the bridge contracts and th
character of the plans and specifications

Sarpy county since 1898 as compared with
other counties he found that this county
paid no more for Its bridge than any of
the neighboring counties and In some cases
less than other counties. In Caaa county
under the contract for 1803 that county paid
$1 per lineal foot more than Sarpy county
paid for th same kind of a steel bridge
built under the same plans and specifies
tlons. Wooden bridges and repair work
has cost the same In this county aa other
counties since 1898. The record of the county
board shows that the contract for each
Of the years since 1898 has been let to the
lowest bidders a, required by law. The
contract mad by Sarpy county since 1898
are similar In form and substance to those
mad by the different counties throughout
the state. The plans and specifications are
of the same general character and are
similar with those adopted by many
counties of the state. Experts In examining
the plan of Sarpy county' bridges state
splendid bridges are called for therein of
sufficient capacity and tensile strength to
meet all the demands of the traffic.
Complaint were made that Sheeley had
charged the county 340 per thousand feet
for lumber. It was discovered that this
waa not a fact. Tho charge of 310 per
thousand was for the lumber put In the
bridge. Including the cost of hardware
labor, etc., hauling and putting the ma
terial In place. In 1898 Sheeley was paid
34.408.38; In ISM, 88.069; in 1900, f4.418.76; In 1901,
S9.196.24; in 1902, 38.118.94; In 1903. 37.506.88.
Amount now claimed due by Sheeley,
