Shanghai. March 17.—Advices from Nagasaki say that a rumor is in circu lation tluTf to the effect that Admira MakaruiY s fleet, which was stationed In the outer harbor at Port Arthur, has broken througli the Japanese cordon, probably under cover ol darkness, and effected a junction with the Vladivos tok licet. This move has been expected ever since Admiral Makaroff decided to keep the tleel under steam in the outer harbor. It is supposed that the fleet made a dash through the Korean straits and found the Vladivostok cruisers along the Korean toast. It wili be in keeping with Makaroff's policy to launch his whole stlength against the J-apanese Port Arthur fleet and such action is looked for, provid ed the Illinois are true. DESCENDING FROM VLADIVOSTOK IttlMiin Amp Corps Mevlnf Towards Korea. Paris, March 17.—The Temps cone tpondent at St Petersburg asserts that a Russian army corps is descending from Vladivostok towatxi Korea. He adds that Port Arthur has a garrison Ol oti.oyo men and is provisioned for a year. The Russian ministry of marine, the Temps correspondent further asserts, claims that Japan's losses since the opening of the war are tour cruisers and five torpedo boat destroyers and the machinery of a 12,000-ton battle ship seriously injured. The correspondent concludes his dis patch with asserting that the concen tration of Russian troops at Mukden and Harbin is considered as terminat lng the danger from a Japanese land lug in the northern part ot the bay of Korea. THREE HUNDRED CASUALTIES. Said Russians Lost Heavily in Last Port Arthur Attack. London, March 17.—The Telegraph's correspondent at Yinkow cables that most of the shells fired into Port Ar thur during another bombardment on March 1^ were part of the ammunition found on board the captured Hast Asiatic htfamer Manchuria, which was bound for Fori Arthur with T.ooit tons of war material. The Russians were greatly surprised at seeing their own •hells bursting among them. Thirty casualties occurred in one large fort. The total Russian casualties were over loo killed and wounded. This is au thentic. Evidently not much damage was done to the Japanese ships, for the forts made but feeble reply. RUSSIA SECURES A LOAN. Completes Arrangements for Mont, When Needed. Berlin, March 17.—A dispatch from •t. Petersburg says that the Russian •ov«m mailt has succeeded in float inz HUT"*---*— II a war"loan of $20(1.000,000.

Russian Captain Convicted of Spying for the Japs. St. Petersburg, March 17.—Captain Irkov of the Manchurian commissariat service has been summarily courtmar tialed and shot for acting as a spy in the pay of the Japanese. When arrested on suspicion of espionage documents found in Ivkov's possession left no doubt of the truth of the charges that he had long been revealing military secrets to the Japanese. The tragic ptory became public through a simple announcement in the army organ that Ivkov had been excluded from the service. CANNOT GIVEN ANY HELP. Port Arthur Must Be Held With Pres ent Garrison. Newchwang, March 17.—General Ku« ropatkin has telegraphed General Stoessel that he must hold Port Arthur with the present garrison. Kuropatkin states that he Is forming his first line of defense with an army of 300,000 men, with a second line of 2ui'»,uou to guard the lines of communi cation and to prevent the Chines* from assisting the Japanese. AROUSE BITTER RESENTMENT. Reports That Russia Intends Abandon ing Port Arthur. St. Petersburg, March 17.—The re ports of the abandonment of Port Ar thur continue to arouse the bitterest resentment, the papers denouncing the story as a stock jobbing scheme. One paper remarks: "Let other countries be fed on such tales, but while Russian blood is flow ing the authorities should not allow the people to be disturbed by such falsehoods. The official telegrams are believed and trusted by everyone." The government is building some armored trains for use on the Manchu rian railroad after the model of those used by the British In South Africa They will not be employed so much on account of fear that the Japanese may cut the road as for their moral effect on the Chinese robber bands, who may become emboldened by the war. A military expert in the Russky In valid contends that the Japanese ac tion in covering their forces at Ping yans, Korea, and at their bases, Che mulpo. Chinnampho and Seoul, means that detachments have moved out along the Vellinikang, which may be compared to a miniature Tugela river. A number of these detachments, it is added, have crossed the Vellikang at Panchen. eight miles from Anju. KOREAN EMPEROR TO MOVE. Will Laave Town Palace for Mm Out skirts of Seoul. Seoul, March 17.—The emperor In tends to leave his town palace and re turn to Vnnbok. his palace in the out skirts of the city. It was here that the queen was assassinated in 1895 and from here that the emperor fled to the Russian legation in 18%. His present residence is situated in the midst of the foreign legations, so that his removal to Yunbok will doubtless be more satisfactory to the Japanese govei nnu nt. REFUSE TOlEAVE KOREA AMERICAN MISSIONARIES PAY NO ATTENTION TO STATE DE PARTMENT ADVICE. Washington. Marrti 17. T7n!te! States Minister Allen cables the state department from Seoul that the Cin cinnati has arrived at Chemulpo with twenty-three Americans from Chin nampho. The minister announced that the missionaries in the neighborhood of Pingyang had refused to send their women and children aboard the Cin cinnati where they could be taken to a place of safety. The attitude of the missionaries is one familiar WHS* o to the state department in connection with Oriental troubles. It has used ev^ry effort by counsel and advice and by extending the use of naval vessels to induce these zealous people to temporarily repair to some place of safety, but often in vain as in this case. The department has made it clear to the missionary representa tives in this country that in the case of actual war like this it cannot un dertake to employ the United States army and navy in expeditions into the interior of a country which is the scene of war. If the missionaries re main after a proper warning the United States government cannot re move them and they must take their chances with other civilians. GUNBOAT OF NO UFT.

Washington, March 17.—The presi dent has granted pardons to two Fil ipinos, Arturo Echelar and Ellac Men-| doza. who were convicted before a military commission of the murder of. a native corporal of police. Echelar was sentenced to be hanged, but the) reviewing authority commuted the sentence to imprisonment for ten years. Mendoza was sentenced to Impris onment for twenty years. The par don is granted on the recommenda tion of the Filipino civil authorities, the judge advocate general of the army anil the secretary of war because the offense grew out of the insurrec tion and would have been included in the president's amnesty proclamation of July 4, 1902. except for the fact that the cases had gone to final trial. STOLE FIFTY DOLLARS DAILY. Smootft Letter Box Thief Caught In Chicago. Chicago, March 17.—Edward Kerlin, who has been arrested, has confessed to stealing hundreds of letters from mail boxes in Hyde Park in the hist three months. He says that, after forging Indorsements on checks and money orders, he cashed them, chief.v In department stores.

SHARP DECLINE IN COTTON. Prices Drop About Seventy Points at New York. New York, March 17.—Starting Weak, at a decline of 16 to 22 point. on the old crop months as a result of disappointing cables, the cotton mar ket during the day continued to de cline. with the local bears gaining confidence, apparently, as the list was forced downward. Trading seemed to be mostly for local account and was only moderately active so far as vol ume of transactions went, but as de clines became more pronounced the market became greatly excited and in the middle of the afternoon showed net declines of t!8 to 72 points on the old crop, with March selling at 15.:H, May at l&.tio and July at 15.68. The new crop positions were about 25 poiit's lower. At this level there seemed to be more bull support and the prices recovered a few points, but continued very irregular, with the gen eral undertone extremely nervous and unsettled.

DIERS TO A LONGING FOR SPEEDY REVENGE. flftrHtt. March 17.—fjeUwa from man Southwest Africa have arriv here giving details of the ghasi treatment of German settlers, 113 whom were killed outright or tortur to death in the district of Okahunci a alone. Women outraged and dismem bered and with pieces of their bodi"s nailed to the doors of the houses an• i boys mutilated and left to die slowly were frequent spectacles. The exp ditionary columns, on coming in sight of a farmer's house, would see t! heads of its former occupants fasten- I to the roof. These sights appear to have excited the rage ot the soldiers. The letters express longings for revenge and a de termination, as one writer says, "to kill everything black." That causes some papers to urge the government to telegraph instructions to Colonel Leutwein, the governor of German Southwest Africa, that he order the soldiers to restrain themselves and conduct the war in a civilized manner. Colonel i.eutwein himself comes in for criticism, as it is alleged he left in sufficient numbers of troops in the ex posed districts and was misled by the temper of the natives, having fre quently at his own table chiefs who are now in rebellion and who are wear leg decorations and swords of honor bestowed on them by the governor in behalf of the emperor. The Tagebiatt intimates that Colonel i-eutwein will be retailed. LIFE AND OCATH STRUGGLE. Strikes and Lockouts in New York Building Trades Imminent. New York, March 17— Employers and their men in the building trades here are preparing, according to the Herald, for a life and death struggle over the question of unionism. The struggle probably will be precipitated by a declaration on the part of the employers for the open shop policy and the destruction of the building trades unions. The disastrous strike here last sum mer, which caused losses amounting into the millions, ended iu agreements to arbitrate future Doubles, but now that the bricklayers' laborers have gone on a strike, followed by the brick layeis, resulting in the idleness of 10, 000 men and tying up of work all over the city, the employers declare that they cannot afford to enter into fur ther agreements with the unions and it is asserted they are preparing to settle the matter in a finish light. The employers maintain that the open shop policy is the only course left to them if they wish to continue in business. A firm stand is being taken by the men, however, on the ground that their planj for arbitration were thrown atdde by the employers. Circulars are being distributed broadcast warning the men to prepare for a deteiaiiuod fight against the open shop. SUFFERED INTENSE 1 "Fur three months I have averaged lau Um 150 ft 4tj," Mid. PAIN.
