•Inking of the Rastoropny Relieves
Chefoo, No^. 18.—The three Japu
torpedo boat destroyers wliuii
entered the harbor during the morn
ing to ascertain if the Russian torpt
do boat destroyer llastoropny was hen
disappeared for a time, but reappeaied
In the afternoon. The Japanese consul
sent a cutter out to meet them and
informed the nearest destroyer, the
Kasurui, that the Rastoropny had been
sunk. The consul says this was the
first thw ships knew of the sinking ot
the Rastoropny. The Kasurui trans
mitted the information by wireless
telegraphy to the Japanese flagship,
Whereupon the destroyers disappeared
ift the direction of Port Arthur.
The sinking of the Rastoropny Uy
the Russian# relieved the Japanese of
an embarrassing position. A repeti

stroy or cut the Rastoropny out would

Japanese Fortifying Their Second Line
General Kuropatkin's Headquarters,
Nov. 18.—The Japanese, according to
the Russian scouts, are heavily forti
fying their second line of defense
along the Taitse river. The major por

Of ansintoundi. Some Japanese and
Russians who had .gone unarmed to
the same spring of water had a hand

WEATHER EKYREMELV COLD.
Eoldierk of Both Armies Driven to
Mukden, Nov. 18. Four days' sharp
cold has silenced the artillery and in
fantry fire between the opposing posi
tions and has driven the soldiers into
the dugouts along the entire entrench
ed line. The apparent impossibility
for either side to eject the other from
their burrows and the fact that iu the
event one side succeeded in advanc
ing it could not dig the other out oi
its an ton men on account of the frost
seems to promise a winter's inactivity,
although the Japanese three days ago
made a small reconnaissance toward
the extreme east and pushed back the
Russian cavalry a few miles as though
they were investigating the possibili
ties for a flanking movement. It seems
Impossible that either side in any case
could more than occupy its opponents
winter quarters. The wells along the
lines are dry and both sides use the
Shakhe river, where the soldiers ap
proach unarmed and get water undei
recognized mutual sanction not to fire
on a single soldier. Here the noble
art of war is confined to fisticuffs and
swapping cigarettes, jackknives ami
food, all of which are prized. Famili
arities are Inevitable where long line?

Fishermen Can Give No Reason foi
Hull, Eng., Nov. 18 --The third dajf
of the boaru of trade iuquiry into Ui»s
North sea incident opened with reit
erations of the oft repeated story thai
there were no Japanese, no guns and
uo ammunition on board the trawlei
fleet and that the fishermen could con

attacked. None of them had been ask
ed by any Japanese agency to do any
thing, nor hal any of them seen a
Japanese or strange warship of an
description in the North sea with tht
exception of the Russians. One wit
ness admitted that, on seeing iht
North sea hospital trawler Alpha with
extinguished lights he had remarked,
"There's a torpedo boat." Crossexanr

was the Alpha. He never before had

Ne Indications of Dead look in North
St. Petersburg, Nov. 18.—The facts
do not warrant the report that Count
Benkendorff, thy Russian ambassadoi
to Cireat Britain, may be recalled on
account of the present hitch in tht
Anglo-Russian North sea convention.
Russia has taken exception to the lan
guage of the Knglish text of the ai
tide relating to fixing the blame and
has proposed some modifications, but
there is no evidence yet that a dead
lock has been reached. The admiralty
is undoubtedly exercising influence
upon the foreign office in the matter.
The Novoe Vremya contends that tin
English text goes beyond The Hague
conference, which only provides for a
commission to determine the facts and
in no sense to make an arbitral award
London, Nov. 18.—The Associated
Press learns that there is no justifica
tion whatever for the sensational de
ductions made in the London Daily
Telegraph s dispatch from St. Peters
burg from the delay in signing tht
Anglo-Russian North sea convention.
Russia has accepted in principle Iht
international commission, but the ex
act text of the convention must be tht
subject of agreement between the two
powers. The present difference xon
cerns small details of the wording ol
the agreement as submitted by Greal
Britain for Russia's consideration.

Cody National bank and three men
who recognized them as the much
sought outlaws, the larger of the pair
was captured in the Big Stone valley,
north of heie.
Details of the fight are meager, but
it is said that the man now held an
swers well the description of the fel
low who doled out death to the bank,
cashier. It is supposed that the small
er robber eluded the three-man posse.
it is also thought here that the
"Cody Bandits" are the ones who com
mitted the oaring holdup of a saloon
and gambling deu in this town.
For a time the bandit was in danger
of being lynched by the citizens of
this place. A large crowd gathered
and a lynching was freely discussed,
but finally Ihe crowd gave up its plan
for want of a leader.
STUDENTS ON A

Madison, Wis., Nov. 18.—For several
hours a crowd of 1,000 students of the
University of Wisconsin engaged in an
organized man hunt, the object of their
wrath being Walter R. Mason, a stu
dent oi Brookline, Mass., who shot A.
G. Grunert of Chicago, another stu
dent, in a hazing escapade Saturday
night. Mason cheered for the Minne
sota football team.
The mob was gathered on the univer

fired guns and received the hundreds
of students who came running up by
saying: "We're going to c-leau out
Mason for shooting Karl Grunert. We
mean business and want only fellows
with no yellow streak in them to come
along and help."
The mob went to the home of Aug
ust He heibel, where Mason boarded,
and after breaking into the house
searched it from attic to cellar. He
could not be found.
