Gunshu Pass, Manchuria, April 4.—
A renewal of fighting Is expected
shortly. The concentration of the
Russian army is complete, with its
advance lines south of the station of
Slpinghai, seventy-four miles north of

their movements well by means of
cavalry and it is difficult to locate
the bulk of their army. A heavy
movement seems to be in progress
on the Russian flanks. The railroad
station at Changtufu, forty to fifty
miles above Tie pass, is occupied by
Japanese artillery, but bo far as as
certainable it does not cover a large
body of troops.

PRESIDENT LEAVES WASHING
TON ON MIS SOUTHERN
AND WESTERN TRIP.
Washington, April 4.—With cheers
and good wishes resounding at the
Pennsylvania depot the president at
9:05 a. m. left on a special train for a
trip through the South and West.
Among those at the station were
many friends of the president, includ
ing Postmaster General Cortelyou
and Secretary Metcalf of the depart
ment of commerce and labor.
The special train, which i# one of
the finest the Pennsylvania road ever
has sent out of Washington, consists
of three cars, the president's private
car Rocket, the Pullman sleeper For
est and the combination baggage and
buffet car Viceroy. The train is hand
somely fitted and contains every
known appliance to insure the com
fort aud safety of the passengers. In
the party besides the president were
Secretary William Loeb, Jr., General
S. «. M. Young, Dr. Alexander Lam
bert, Lieutenant C. R. Forteseue, one
of the president's aides A. C. Latta
and J. I.. McGrew, stenographers to
the president H. A. Stropmeyer, pho
tographer, and representatives of the
newspaper press associations.
The trip is being made primarily to
enable the president to attend the re
union of his old regiment, the rough
riders, which is to be held at San
Antonio, Tex., next Friday, and to
hunt big game in Oklahoma and Colo
rado. Incidentally the president will
Deliver Notable Addresses
at several places. His first important
stop will be at Louisville, Ky., where
he will be the guest of the city for
three hours. He will go from Louis
ville directly to St. Louis and thence
to San Antonio, stopping at several
places on the way, among them
Spearman and Dallas, Tex.
After leaving San Antonio the pres
ident will go to Oklahoma for a wolf
hunt and proceed thence to Colorado
to hunt big game in the mountains.
Unless it should be necessary on ac
count of unforeseen circumstances to
curtail the trip the president will be
absent from Washington about two
months. Definite plans for the trip,
after he shall leave Oklahoma, have
not been made, the purpose of the
president being to adjust his plans
to the conditions as they may exist at
the time. While he expects to be in
the wilds of Colorado for a consid
erable time he will keep in constant
touch, by meanR of couriers to the
nearest telegraph station, with Wash
ington and thus will be enabled to
attend to such Important business as
may demand his personal attention.

president, was his physician in New
