JAPANESE TROOPS REPORTED IN
FORCE ON NORTH BANK OF
THE YALU RIVER.

LERV CROSS TO THE MAN*
CHURiAN SIDE.
Ohefoo, April 12.—Reports, apparent
|y on good authority, •reached here dur
Ing the day that the Japanese are now
In some force on the north bank of
the Yalu river and that the Russians
are falling back toward Fenghuang
cheng.
According to these reports a Japan
ese for e consisting of two brigades
Of infantry, with pome cavalry and
field guns, crossed the river at Kwau
phien, to the east of the Russian posi
tion, meeting with practically 110 op
position.
It cannot be verified that a landing
of a big Japanese force has been made
in Takushan, but it is generally be
lieved this is so and that an attack
will soon be made from the east on
Antun*:, the key of the Russian posi
tion on the Yalu.
This attack v.ould be followed, nat
urally, by an attempt to cross the
river at Wiju. it is believed here that
this is what has caused the Russian
abandonment of the Yalu river, if the
report is true.
General Kuropatkin is proceeding 011
an iuBpcction tour of the outposts
along the Yalu river.
General Rennculiampff's Cossack
division, numbering lo.uoo men, has
arrived on the upper Yalu.
The Fourth army corps reached Har

Vladivostok is held by 13,000 rifle

RU88IAN MINISTER PROTESTS.
Wants Japanese Instructors in Chi
nese Army Dismisstd.
8t. Petersburg, April 12.—The le
ports that M. Lessar, the Russian min
ister at Peking, had made strong rep
resentations to the Chinese govern
menl on the subject of the Japanese
military instructors in the service of
China and the Japanese oflicers with
General Ma's army, demanding the
issuance of orders for their dismissal,
are confirmed here. Russia regards
their continued presence where they
are as being a most serious threat to
ker. it is pointed out that without
the couseat of the Peking government
the Japanese officers who are with
General Ma, who is now north of the
great wall, easily can obtain dominant
influence over the Chinese troops and
use them if the Japanese operations
demand t'.ie creation of a diversion in
General Kuropatkin's rear, possibly
resulting in cutting bis communica
tions.
If General Kuropatkin is compelled
in time oi stress to meet a Sudden
and unexpected attack from this quar
ter it might greatly embarrass him.
Of course the Peking government
would disavow complicity, but the
barm would be done, and Russia con
siders that the immediate removal of
Japanese influence with the Chinese
army is imperative. YVhiie it is not
specifically stated that China's failure
to comply with the Russian demands
will be considered a violation of Chi
nese neutrality this is believed to be
the true account of the situation. It
is added that Kuropatkin is disposing
of 20,00'J men where they will be avail
able for use in the diiectlon of the
Chinese frontier, but no confirmation
Of this report is obtainable.

Satisfaction Expressed Over Anglo
French Colonial Treaty.

bassador, M. Nelidoff, acting on in
structions from Foreign Minister
Lainsdorff, has exptessed to Foreign

ports that the Anglo-French treaty
was indirectly hostile to Russia. In
the course of an interview M. Nelidoff
is quoted as saying that M. Delcassc
advised him several weeks ago con
cerning the negotiations and the au
thorities at St. Petersburg were kept
informed of the developments concern
ing Newfoundland, Siam and some of
the other questions involved. M. Neli
doff said Russia had no interest In
these questions as they have no inter
national importance, but concerning
Morocco ami Egypt, the ambassador
continued, Russia felicitates France
on the happy solution. He said:
"We are friends and allies of
France. As friends we rejoice at your
successes. As allies we are gratified
at this new guarantee of French
strength and security. We naturally
wish to see our ally as strong as pos
sible and with the least possible in
ternational issues. Therefore, as the
accord removes numerous vexations, it
Is most agreeable to Russia."

BRAKES REFUSED TO WORK
FIVE DEAD AND MANY INJURED
IN STREET CAR ACCIDENT
AT SANTA BARBARA.
Santa Barbara, Cal., April 12.—Five
persons were killed and over twenty
injured in a street car accident at the
intersection of Garden and Mission
streets. A heavily loaded car ran off
the track.
Over half of the injured had bones
broken and not a few of them suffered
serious fractures of the skull.
The accident was due to a defect In
the brake apparatus, as was revealed
upon an inspection of the car after the
accident. While the rear brakes were
tightly set against the wheels the for
ward brakes were of no service be
cause of the breaking of a part of the
gearing. The motorman discovered
that something was wrong with the
car several blocks above the poiut
where the accident occurred and en
deavored to set the brakes, but failed
to check the speed of the car. At the
intersection of Garden and Mission
streets there is a very abrupt curve
and the car was moving at its highest
speed down a 5 per cent grade when
the curve was reached. The car was
thrown from the track upon its side.
One section of the car was smashed
into splinters. Those who were in
stantly killed and many of those who
were most seriously Injured were
standing on the guard rail on the side
of the car as it crashed into the
ditch.

WITHOUT JURISDICTION
SUPREME COURT REMANDS MIN­
NESOTA MERGER CASK TO
STATE COURTS.
REVERSES
OPINION OF
TRIAL JUD6E
CIRCUIT COURT ERRED IN HEAR
ING CAUSE AND RENDER­
ING DECISION.
Washington, April 12.—The United
Btates supreme court has decided the
case of the State of Minnesota vs. the
Northern Securities company and the
Northern Pacific and Great Northern
Railway companies. Involving the
validity of the merger of the two rail
road companies, holding that it was
without jurisdiction and reversing the
opinion of the court below.
Justice Harlan, who delivered the
opinion, said that the circuit court
should not have entertained jurisdic
tion in the case, the effect being to
remand the case to the state courts.
In delivering ihe opinion of the court
Justice Harlan cited the facts bearing
on the origin and history of the case,
saying that originally the suit was in
stituted by the state in its own court,
but before an opinion could be reached
there it was, on petition of the Securi
ties company, transferred to the cir
cuit court ot the district of Minnesota,
by which court it was dismissed.
Much controversy arose over the right
to remove to the federal court and
after hearing the case argued once the
supreme court ordered a second hear
ing on that point.
Justice Harlan called attention to
the fact that the proceeding was for
the purpose of enforcing both the
state laws and the federal anti-trust
act, saying that the circuit court could
not have taken jurisdiction if only the
state statutes had been involved.
Federal Law Not Involved.
Taking up the federal law and an
alyzing its provisions he said it was
clear that the case did not belong to
any of the lauses provided for by it
"It is," he said, "not a criminal pro
ceeding nor a suit in equity in the
name of the United States to restrain
violations of the anti-trust act nor a
proceeding in the name of the United
States for the forfeiture of property
nor an aciion by any person or cor
poration ior the recovery of threefold
damages for injury done to business
or property by some other person or
corporation."
The contention that the case in
volved proprietary Interests of the
state was not allowed to influence the
opinion. On that point the court said.
In part:
"The injury on account of which the
present suit was brought is at most
only remote and indirect such an in
jury as would come alike, although in
different degrees, to every individual
owner of property in a state by reason
of the suppression, in violation of the
ac of congress, of free competition be
tween interstate carriers engaged in
business in such state If Miunesoia
may, by an original suit in its name,
invoke the jurisdiction of the circuit
court because alone of the alleged re
mote and indirect injury to its pro
prietary interests arising from the
Mere Absence of Free Competition
in trade and commerce as carried 011
by Interstate carriers within its lim
its, then every state upon like grounds
may maintain, in its name, in a circuit
court of the United States, a suit
against interstate carriers engaged in
business within their respective lim
its."
The court also refused to hold that
Minnesota's dignity or rights as a
state would be affected under arti le
IV. of the federal Constitution by per
mitting the stock of corporations of
that state to be held by an outside cor
poration like the Securities company
Justice Harlan said the court did not
think that the article of the Constitu
tion had any bearing whatever on the
question. He said in conclusion:
"For the reasons stated we are of
opinion that the suit does not—to use
the words ot the act of 1875—really
and substantially involve a dispute or
controversy within the jurisdiction of
the circuit court for the purpose of a
final decree. That being the case the
circuit court, following the mandate
of the statute, should not have pro
ceeded therein, but should have re
manded the case to the state court.
The decree of the circuit court Is
reversed and the case is sent back
with directions that it be remanded to
the state court."
The opinion of the court was unani
mous.

MAfHEALTH
The story of e
great deal of ths
unhappiness of
women is a story
.. of lost health.
|A Women wonder
IN\
how it
little by little
the form loses
wSSbSSSsmSbv plumpness, the
cheeks grow hol
low and sallow, and tbey feel tired and
worn-out all the time. In a large pro
portion of cases when women are weak,
run-down and falling off in flesh and
looks, the root of the trouble can te
traced to womanly diseases which under
mine the general health. The proof of
this is that women who have been cured
of painful womanly diseases by the use
of Dr. Pierce's Favorite Prescription
have recovered their general health,
gained in flesh and in appearance.
A Purgative Pleasure.
If you ever took DeWitt's Little Early
Riaert) for billiousness or constipation
you know what a purgative pleasure is
These famous little pills cleanse the
liver and rid the system of all bile with
out producing unpleasant effects. They
do not gripe, sicken or weaken, but give
tone and strength to the tissues and
organs involved. W. H. Howell of
Houston, Tex., says: "No better pill can
be used than Little Early Risers for
constipation, sick headache, eto." Bold
