afternoon. The Chinese worked their
nuns well, replying effectively to the
Japanese fire. At 2 p. m. a body o' Jap
anese infantry was thrown forward in
skirmiih line ai.d kept up a rifle fire
upon the enemy till dusk. All the fight
ing during the day was done by the Pong !
ban column. The Chinese defenses suf-i
fered exceedingly from the Japanese fire, '
but it is doubtful if the losses on either !
sido were great, as the troops of both the
Chinese and Japanese took every advan-1
tago possible of the shelter which the.
earthworks on one side and the nature of ;
the ground on the other offered. Flank
attacks upon the Chinese port did not
develop material advantage during the
day, although the Japanese gained some
in position. Firing was continued at in
tervals throughout the night. The
main two flanking columns of the
Japanese drew a cordon around the Chi
nese troops, and at 2 o'clock in
the morning the Japanese attack was
delivered simultaneously und with ad
mirable precision. The Chinese, ut
terly unsuspicious of the Japanese at
tack from the rear, became panic stricken
and were cut down and bayoneted by
hundreds. So well was the Japanese at
tack directed, that the Chinese were sur
rounded at every point, and eventually
sought safety in flight.
Defending the intrenchments were
aome of Viceroy LI Hung Chang's picked
Chinese troops, drilled by Europeans.
These soldiers made a determined stand
to the last, aud were rut down to a
man. The Pong San columns swarming
over the damagdd defenses ot the Chi
nese front completed the rout of the Chi- j
nese, and the whole of the latter's posi- j
tion was captured by the troops of the !
mikado. Half an hour after the early
morning attack of the command the
strongly defended position of the Ping
Yan was in the hands of the Japanese
troops. It is believed the Chinese posi
tion at Ping Yun was defended by 20,000
Chinese, of whom only a few escaped.
An immense amount of provisions, am
munition, arms and other stores, in ad
dition to 100 flags, were captured by the
Japanese. It in estimated the Chinese lost
14000 iiu-n killed, wounded and prisoners.
Atvong the captured Chinese are several
of the most prominent commanding of
ficers of the Chinese troops in Corea.
Only a few Chinese commanders suc
ceeded in escaping, and these got away
almost immediately after the Japanese
nisile an attack upon the, Chinese rear.
Among the Chinese commanders taken
prisoners was General Tso Fonk Wai,
commander-in-chief of the Mancburian
army, who fought desperately to the
lsst, and only yielded when badly
wounded. Only 30 Japanese were killed
and 270 wounded, including 11 Japanese
ollicers. The Japanese, when this dis
patch was sent, were actively pursuing
the fugitive Chinese, and as nearly all
the latter were without arms, they will
undoubtedly surrender as soon as the
Japanese overtake them. As far as act
ive operations of the Chinese in Corea
are concerned the war is practically
at au end. The Coreans who have
shown sympathy with the Chinese and
a few detached bands of Chinese may
succeed in getting another army to
Corea, but that country will remain in
undisputed possession of the Japanese.
In view of previous reports received as
to the terrible condition of the roads in
the north, and the utter impossibility of
moving guns and supplies southward,
it is not likely there will be any more
fighting of importance in Corea during
the present year. It is hoped the vic
tory may serve as a basis for peace nego
liationd. In(i)irif of the Japonwe lega
tion here confirm the report of a vic

A GREAT XAVAL BATTLE fOCOIIT.
London, Sept. 19. A dispatch filed at
Shanghai at midnight says the Chinese
Northern squadron, under the com
mand of Admiral Ting, left Port Arthur
last Friday night, having under convoy
seven transports; loaded with troops.
The object of the expedition was to land
troops near Wiju, whence they were to
he sent to the front. The enemy's fleet
was sighted off the Jalu river bearing
down upon the Chinese squadron.
The Chun Tuen, one of the most pow
erful vessels in the Chinese navy, fired
a shot at the Japanese as soon as the
latter came in rane of her guns,
tire was promptly returned and soon
the Chen Yuen, also, was hotly en
gaged with two large Japanese cruisers,
one of which is said to have been the
Chi Yoda. the other Japanese vessels
took positions and for six hours the bat
tle was waged furiously. The solendid
cruiser Chin Yuen took a prominent
part in the engagement. One of the
Japanese vessels discharged a torpedo
which struck her fairly. When it ex
ploded it was apparent it had done
great damage, for the Chin Yuen began
almost immediately to settle. Her
crew, however, stuck to their guns and
delivered some effective shots before
the vessel sank.
The belted cruiser King Yuen met a
similar fate, being struck with a torpedo
and sinking shortly afterwaJd. Many of
the crew of both vessels went down
while shooting at close quarters. Only
a few on board were saved, and it is re
ported that 600 ollicers and men were
drowned by the foundering of the two
vessels. After the Chin Yuen and the
Kin Yuen had gone down, the cruiser
Yang Wei and the Choa Y'ung ran
aground while maneuvering for posi
tion. They were helpless and a de
structive Are was poured into thorn from
the big guns of the Japanese. Some of
the Japanese warships devoted them
selves for a time to the transports, which
had not time to get out of range. It is
believed several transports were sunk,
including one from which the troops had
not been landed. It is estimated the
total Chinese loss in killed and wounded
is 1500. It is reported the Japanese loss
was 1000 killed and wounded.

RHElkE.XRIIU.E IS DEFEATED.
The Seventh Commandment Found
Valiant Defenders at the Polls
in the Old liliiegrass State.
Lkxi.noton, Sept. 15. No election or
other occasion ever caused such general
usxnsioii of buriineas as the contest be
tween Owens and Breckenridge and E.
K. f-ettle for the democratic nomination
for congress from the seventh, belter
known as the AfthUnd district. For
months Ihe district has been agitated
in the most bitter manner. It was not
apolitical or even a factional fight; it
was a moral contest. For weeks and
months, and during the last few days,
it became intensly personal. Colonel
Breckenridge was fighting for lile, and
I he never before made such speeches or
displayed such executive ability in or
ganization. He marshaled every man
j he could command, but he could nut
j command the women. They bad no
I votes, but they were the controlling ele
ment in the fight. At the Owens head
! quarters to night their claims have run
j up from 400 at 7 o'clock to two, three,
j four and even five times that plurality,
i and they say in their rejoicing: "The
j ladies did it."
j The ladies could not get ward-workers
to their prayer meetings, but ttieir or
ganizations of committees of one gen
erally obtained promises at home oat ot
Jthe voters, who needed watching on en
, tering the hooths. The great surprise
' ol the day was the good order of every
;one. There were some personal en
I counters, but not as many as usual at
j elections. Today, however great pre-
caution was taken to prevent disorder,
j If the Breckenridge men had enforced
the challenge rule as strictly as expected
there would have been trouble. So
j early had the canvassing and polling been
i done, that the challengers knew how al-
most all the democrats stood, and they -i
could have kept many from voting. It
was generally believed the republican
managers favored Breckenridge, as they
hrvill An fl.a Ai-an nf I. to n.t.-. I n .. . i. n

i their candidate's election would not be
J hopeless. Very few republicans, how
ever, voted. As many precincts were
i Ion? distances from the telegraph office
i the complete returns will likely not be
known before morniug, but Owens seems
to be so much in the lead that it will
not require the complete returns to
settle the result.
Owens won his victory today by a
superb organization. At every precinct
I his voters were on hand early, and
forced the voting. The news spread over
the district and had k wonderfully dis
couraging effect on the Breckenridge
people. Some of today's happenings have
been amusing, others dramatic, and in
one or two instances there has been a
deeply touching picture in the panorama
of events. Captain B. J, Treacy, presi
dent of the Owens club, and his son-in-law,
James C. Rogers, clerk of the cir
cuit court, were ranging on opposite
sides in the duty of challenging voters.
Both these men are prominent horsemen
known all over the United States. They
have been' intimate friends for years,
but the bitterness of this day's contest
has perhaps ended the peace of their
families forever. Several times today
these two men nearly came to blows,
and it was only the presence of cooler
beads that prevented an unfortunate
affray. Captain Treacy had determined
to challenge every Breckenridge vote.
He had blanks already prepared, and
upon these be had written the names
of the entire list of the representative's
supporters in the precinct. As each man
olford to vote, the captain handed in to
the election officers the printed chal
lenge, and then a furious wrangle fol
lowed. His son-in-law, Rogers, under
took to retaliate by challenging all
Owens' followers, and the voting was
delayed in many instances - for half an
hour, while the enraged men fought it
On Main street in front of the Plnenix
hotel, this morning, an express messen
ger, who has always been a strong Breck
enridge man, was on his way to the polls
when he was met by bis aged mother
who. with tears in her eyes, begged him
not to vote for "the brazen libertine,"
as she called the congiessman. The boy
promised and one more vote was made
for Owens. .
Colonel Breckenridge was himself one
of the first to vote. He lives in the third
ward, and as be approached the polls
the crowd fell back, and Borne of his
friends cheered faiutly. The colonel
bowed his most graceful acknowledg
ments and put in a ballott for himself.
No general effort was made at Lexington
to enforce the rule requiring voters to.
