Toklo, April 13.—It is belicvod here
that fighting has rommonced on the
Yalu river. It is known that the Rus
sians occupy the right bank of the
river in force.
No direct information from the
Yalu district has bren received here,
but the position of the Russians is
known and, while it is doubted that
they will be able to prevent the Jap
anese from crossing the river, that
they will offer gome opposition is re
garded as certain. It is not believed,
however, that there will be any seri
ous engagement during the Japanese
operations to cross the Yalu.
The foreign military observers at
tached to the first Japanese army have
been directed to hold themselves in
readiness to move and it is expec ted
that they will leave for the front in a
few days. The American attaches are

QUIET AT PORT AftTHUR.
Official Report to That Effect Received
at St. Petersburg.
St. Petersburg. April 13.—The Cos
sack scouts on the banks of tfe Yalu
river have not reported the appear
ance of Japanese transports there.
The emperor received a telegram
during the morning reporting that all
is quiet at Port Arthur, that the naval
squadron is again putting out to sea
and that Vice Admiral Makaroff has
sent a few torpedo boat destroyers to
explore the coasts where some ot the
enemy's torpedo boats are believed
be lurking.
JAP MAIN BODY NEAR WIJU
FREQUENT SKIRMISHES OCCUR
BETWEEN OPPOSING FORCES
IN NORTHERN KOREA.
Seoul, Korea, April IS.—The Japan
ese authorities here say there have
been frequent skirmishes between
Sakju and Wiju.
The main body of the first Japanese
army is in the neighborhood of Wiju.
About 600 Hat chested, sandal shod
Korean infantrymen left Seoul during
the iay for the northern part of tlam
piuugdo province, on the frontier of
the Kirin district of Manchuria, to
keep in order the bandits who are con
stantly embroiled with the Chinese
settlers in the Tumen region, which
has resulted in diplomatic representa
tions on the subject trom China. It is
considered doubtful whether these
troops will reach their destination,
team being expressed that they will
desert.
The Japanese minister to Korea, M.
Hayashi, has requested the Korean
government to facilitate the plaus of
General I'araguchi, the commander of
the Japanese forces at Seoul, for the
thorough sanitation ot Seoul and the
other large towns of Korea, so as not
to expose the Japanese troops to the
ravages of cholera and other diseases.
RUSSIANS FULLY PREPARED.
Bxpected Japs Would Attack Port Ar
thur Sunday.
Port Arthur, April 13.—Telegraphic
communications have been interrupted
recentlj owing to torrential rains. The
railroad embankments in South Man
churia hav'e been damaged, thus de
laying the movement of troops. The
embankment of the railway running
to Shaniiaikwan is submerged at sev

and torpedo uoais nas ju.s returned
here from a cruise far out tu sea.
Easter passed without the antlct
pated Japanese attack. Every precau
tion was taken to prevent a surprise.
Vice Admiral Makaroff, who personally
supervises nightly the precautionary
measures, spent Easter eve in a guard
boat. During the usual Easter night
service the church windows were cov
ered so as to prevent the lights being
seen by the enemy and the absence
ot all illumination in the town was a
constant reminder to the inhabitants
of the possibility of an attack. The
troops celebrated Easter Sunday at
their posts. Grand Duke Boils, who
left here April 8, has returned to Port
Arthur.
JAPS RAISE THE VARIAG.
Sunken Russian Cruiser Successfully
Floated.
New York, April 13.—Reports have
been received from Chemulpo, says a
World dispatch from Kobe, Japan, that
engineers have raised the Russian
miser Variag. It is expected that
the salvage of this vessel will more
than offset the cost of the merchant
men sunk in the attempts to block
l'ort Arthur, which is estimated so
far at $625,000.

Gunboat Esptegle Finally Departs
From Newchwang.
Newchwang, April 13.—Prior to the
departure of the British gunboat Es
piegle, which has been stationed here
during the past winter, M. Grosse, the
civil administrator of Newchwang,
visited the warship officially. After
the visit the civil administrator, in
company with the Russian local au
thorities, waited on the esplanade
along the water front while the gun
boat steamed past on her way down
the liver. This official ceremony was
in recognition of the cordial and pleas
ant relations which have existed be
tween the officers of the Espiegle and
the Russian authorities during the
stay of the British gunboat at New
chwang.
NO PHILIPPINE NATION.
Taft Says They Are Not Ready for
Independence.
Peoria, 111., April 13.—Secretary of
War Taft, speaking at the eighth an
nual banquet of the Kickapoo club,
clearly outlined the course to be pur
sued by the administration in the Phil
ippines and in reply to the queries of
critics as to the date at which the ad
ministration proposed to grant inde
pendence to the Philippines he stated
that the time for a final decision was
not at hand, nor would it be for prob
ably several generations.

BARCELONA.
Barcelona, Spain, April 13.—Premier
Maura was attacked and wounded
during the day by a would-be assas
sin armed with a dagger while enter
ing the palace of the council general.
Senor Maura's wound is not serious.
The premier had just returned from
attending a reunion service celebrated
for the repose of the soul of the late
Queen Isabella and was entering the
palace when a youth, nineteen years
old. named Joaquin Miguel Artao, ap
proached and, shouting "Good day
long live anarchy," struck the premier
in the chest with a dagger he had
concealed in a handkerchief.
Artao was immediately seized and
imprisoned.
The premier was able himself to
send to Madrid
the news of the
tempt on his life.

Pacific Mall 8teamer Colon Wricked
Near Acapulco.
San Francisco, April 13.—The Mer
chants' Exchange has received a ca
blegram stating that the Pacific Mail
Steamship rompany's steamer Colon,
which left this city on March 22 for
Panama with a numfer of passengers
and a cargo of general merchandise
consigned to Mexican and Central
American ports, has been wrecked.
The Colon is reported to have struck
on a rock at Punt a Remedios, causing
injuries which made it necessary to
beach her at Acapulco.
It is not believed here that any lives
were lost, as no casualties are men
tioned in the dispatch announcing the
accident to the vessel.

New York. April 13.—United States
Senator William A. Clark of Montana
sailed during the day on the Hamburg
American liner Princess Victoria Ixu

MEMBERS ARE CLEARED
SPECIAL HOUSE COMMITTEE RE­
PORTS ON CHARGES CON­
CERNING CONGRESSMEN.
6UILTY OF 10 IMPROPER CONDUCT
DOINGS COMPLAINEO OP APPEAR
TO BI WITHIN THE LINE OF
THEIR OFFICIAL DUTY.
Washington, April 13.—The report
of the special committee of the house
appointed to investigate the report
from the postofflce department, printed
under the caption "Charges concern
ing members of congress," was made
to the house during the day by Chair
man McCall. The report is signed by
all seven members of the committee.
The minority members, however, ap
pend supplemental views.
The important phase of the report
Is a finding regarding the connection
of members with the business of the
postofflce department. This finding is
as follows:
"After a careful consideration of all
cases specified in the report so far aa
they relate to present members of the
house of representatives, which the
committee assume to be the limit of
their jurisdiction, they have unani
mously reached the conclusion that
nothing has appeared in connection
with said cases that would justify the
finding that any member of the house
of representatives has profited finan
cially in the slightest degree, or that
any member was guilty of improper
conduct in connection therewith, or
that any member has done in connec
tion with any of said cases anything
that did not appear to be within the
Line of His Official Duty
according to long established custom
"Having reached this conclusion the
committee feel constrained to add
that in their opinion it would be well
to make as formal as may be and to
restrain within the narrowest possible
limits the action of members in con
nection with post offices and the details
of other executive matters and that
the severance of members from work
of that character would augment the
efficiency of the house of representa
tives
"In conclusion the committee would
direct attention to the fact that this
inquiry has come upon the house sud
denly and without any notice to its
members. Their correspondence has
been brought to the light with that
department of the government with
which their relations are most inti
mate. In no instance is it likely that
they expected the letters which they
wrote would be published.
"These letters were written under
a great variety of circumstances, in
haste and some doubtless by the pri
vate secretary of a member some of
them formal and some of a personal
nature.
"It is to the credit of the member
ship of the house that correspondence
of this character thus collected to
gether should contain so little of an
unfavorable character."
LIVELY INCIDENT IN SENATE
SENSATIONAL COLLOQUY OCCURS
BETWEEN MESSRS. TELLER
AND HOPKIMB.
Washington, April 13.—The senntr
has passed the postofflce appropria
tion bill and begun consideration of
the army bill.
A sensational Incident occurred
during the consideration of the po^
office appropriation bill. Mr. Teller
was speaking and he had made an al
lusion to a letter of General Thomas
regarding appointments in Chicago in
which Secretary Shaw was criticised.
Mr. Hopkins entered the chamber
and became engaged with Mr. Teller
in a colloquy over the matter, sayis
he knew enough about the matter tu
know that the statement of the Colo
rado senator was untrue.
Mr. Teller replied that his informa
tion was as good as any information
obtained from the slums.
Mr. Hopkins retorted that he was
not afraid of anything in his own
record and intimated that the Colo
rado senator could not say as much.
"I will say," remarked Mr. Teller,
"that after more than twenty-five
years' public service that it is a gratu
itous insult."
Mr. Hopkins tried to make a reply,
but Mr. Teller declined to be further
int ermpted until the senator from II1 i
nois could acquire the manner of th
Senate.
He then went on with his speech.

HW HEALTH
GAINED
The story of e
great deal of th«
unhappiness of
women is a story
of lost health.
Women wonder
how it is that
little by little
the form loses
plumpness, the
cheeks grow hol­
low and sallow, and they 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 be
traced to womanly diseases which under
mine the general health. The proof of
this is that women who have leen 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.
Dr. Pierce's Favorite Prescription cures
the womanly diseases \w„ich sap the gen
eral health. It establishes regularity,
dries weakening drains, heals inflamma
tion and ulceration and cures female
weakness.
