izing the interest taken then, the
present meeting will be enthusiastic
and profitable. The Grange Hall

end of the Albany bridge - on the
river road. The following program

Cbeefoo, Feb. I5. A reliaMeau
thority says that n.ree Russian tor
pedo boats have been sunk by guns
from the fo U. They were mistakeu
for Japanese vessels.
New York, Feb. 12. The Japan
ese troops landed at Gensan are in
tended tooperate with the troops
tbat are now been successfully land
ed at Pingyang, on the opposite
side of the (Jorean peninsula, nays a
World dispatch from Kobe, Japan.
These two forces constitute Japan's
Fecond line of defence against the
Russian-", who are marching "over
the Yalu into Corea.
A first line of defense baa bsen
arranged. It is composed of picked
troops, who are lind up along the
south .bank of the Yalu. It is con
sidered most unlikely tbat this ar
my will reach its destination in
time to intercept the invading Rus
sians. The second line may fail to hold
the invaders, in which case it is ex
pected that a land battle will take
place not far from Seoul.
In any case the Japanese prepara
tions are made with a view of clos
ing in on any body of Russian
troops tbat succeeds in forcing its
way into the intsrior of Corea. Mo
bilization of the army has been ef
fected without hitch. The trans
portation and supplies by means of
the railway from the interior to the
coaet proceed with great precision.
San Francisco, Feb. 12. The Jap
anese residents in this city have de
cided to undertake the work of rais
ing a war fund of $5,000,000 for the
assistance of their country in the
fight against Rus3h. Consul Uye
no presided at the meeting, and he
was electsd to take permanent
charge of the work, appoint com
mittees and supeiintend tha trans
fer of money to the home country.
About 200 cf the most promi
nent residents of the local Japanese
colony attended the meeting. Ma
ny patriotic speeches were made,
and the general sentiment was tbat
if the Japaness are net reeded for
actual fightiog they should contrib
ute everything they possess if neces
sary. San Francisco is expected to
begin the work by tb.9 early raising
of $000,000 to $l,ODo,ooo, and calls
for funds will be made upon the
Japanese in every California city,
in Arizona, Nevada, New Mexico,
Colorado Utah, and the movement
will be extended to the eastern
states, where there are many very
many wealthy Japanese, and to
Mexico and to British Columbia.
Each contributor will be permit-
tad to Bay whether the money given
by him shall go into ; the govern
ment war fundthe red-cross fund
or a fund for the Fupport cf widows
and orphan of Jpaoeee soldiers
killed in the war.

Vienna, Feb.. 12. Dispatches
from St. Petersburg indicate tfca, in
spite of the patriotic demonstra ions
that have been repoited from St.
Petersburg andM iscow, there is a
lack of enthusiasm among the great
masses of pra9antry in' the interior
district?.'. These dispatches say the
revolutionary element of the coun
try is growing most active in the
remote regions arjd tbat there is a
spirit of. dii-content which grows
more dangerous to the government
momentarily. The rebellious
movement is passing beyond the
ro itrol of the police in some diS'
t icts, and an awful revolution sim
ilar to the reian of terror in France
is believed within the bounds of
co8ibilitv. x
A'l of these condiiion?, it Is be
lieved, influenced the Czar through
out the negotiations with Japan on
the side cf peace. It is pointed out
that with the main fiabting body of
the Russian army actively etggsd
in Corea and Minchuria, the Czir
realize 1 that be would beendarger
ed from internal eourc38, and tield
out f gainst the war patty' eo long
as he could safely do so without in
curring the displeasure of the most
pqwerful of his advisers.
It is thought probable berp, also,
tbat there will be coasiderable dan
ger tr Russia through secret agents
of revolutionary parties who may
be with the army in the Far East,
and who would readily risk their
lives to betray the army tjthe Jap
anese. Tukio, Feb. '11. Vice-Admiral
Togo's official report of the despei
ate attack of the Japanese fleet at
'Port Arthur reached Tokio late this
evening. The report was written
tt sea. The report briefly and
modestly recpunts the Japanere vic
tory. Vice-Admiral Togo left the
battle ground not knowing the full
extent of the damage his torpedo
shells bad ii.fl(ctd, but he was evi
dently confident the Russians bad
suffered heavily. A translation of
Vice-Admiral TogoV report follows:
"After the combined fleet left Sa
sebo, Feb. 6, everything went as
planned. At midnight, Feb. 8, our
advance squadron 'attacked the ene
my at Port Arthur. At the time
the enemy's advance squadron was,
for the most part, outside of Port
Arthur. Of the advance-squadron,
at least the battle ship PoHaAa, the
protested cruiser Askold and two
others appeared to have been struck
by our torpedoes. Oa February 9,
at noon, our fleet advanced in the
offiDg of Port Arthur bay, and , at
tacked the rest ol the enemy's fleet
for about forty minutes. The re
sult of the attack is not yet known,
but considerable damage wa? inflict
ed on the enemy, and I believe they
were greatly demoralized. They
stopped fighting about 1 o'clock and
appeared to retreat into the harbor.
In this action, the damage to our
fleet was very slight and our fight
ing strergth is not in the least de
creased. The number of killed and
wounded was 58. Of these, four
were killed and 54 wounded.
"A report of the engagement of
the detachment squadron at Che
mulpo has probably been sent you
diraot'.y by Admiral TJriu. Our ad
vance squadron bore the brunt of
the enemy's fire, and after the at
tack, for the most pirt, rejoined the
main' fleet. All the imperial prin
ces on board the Bhips are unharm
ed. "The conduct of all our officers
during the action was cool, not un
like that during ordinary maneu
vers. Since the battle their spirits
have teen high, but their conduct
was very calm. This morning ow
ing to a very high south wind there
has been no communication between
ships, and no detailed report,' has
been received from each vesael, so
I report merely the foregoing facts.
New Yoik. Feb. 12. About 200
of the Variag's crew lost their lives
when the vessel was destroyed Mon
day by the Japanese off j,Chemulpo,
according to a World's dispatsh
from Tokio. The crew of the Rus
sian cruiser numbered 57Q. Many
lost their lives under fire, but a
large unmber were drowned in at

Wssbington, Feb. I3. The Fed
eral grand jury in this city is list
ening to testimony in the famous
Benson-Hyde land fraud , case, and
from evidence already submitted
Secretary Hitchcock is confident
tbat a number of indictments will
result. Several witnesses who have
been examined confirm, to the mi

The Oregonisn of October 21, 19O3,
of the methods pursued by the lieu
land ring, but the testimony goes
further and implicates several gov
ernment employes, both in Wash
ington and in the Wtst., There afe
also .indications that : persons - in
high places may be .reached before
the end. -
One of the most important wit
nesses yet examined is a clerk in
the general land office, who admit
ted be had co-operated with Ben
son and had furnished him with
advance information . whenever the
department was preparing to create
forest reserves. This elerk'a -service
was engaged by Benson, so it
was testified, during one of Benson's
vis't? to Washinetin. When the
two bai reached an understanding
the clerk was invited to call on
Bensoo at the hotel.. .'
Aft r a brief conversation Benson
asked bis visitor if he would like to
wash bis hands. Taking the hint
the cieUt stepped into the bathropm,
found a $100 bill on the wasbstand
and promptly appropriated it. He tes
tified that after subsequent visits to
Bcinon he found large sums of toon
ey in his overcoat pocket, and at
othtr times when iisnson was in
San Francisco he received money
at differfat timee through the mails.
No Inter accompanied the funds,
which were invariably inclosed in
blank envelopes.
So great became the demands of
Beoson for information that this
clerk found it necessary to empljy
a confederate, and it is then believ
ed that Harlan, who was chief of
the forestry division, at the time,
was taken into the scheme. JTogeth-
er these two men, it is alleged, By
utilizing a cipher code furnished by
Benson, kept the San Francisco of
fice advised whenever and wherever
reserves were. to be created, and
save them such other ios-ide inform
ation as would assist them in their
cer?, and it is said not one of the
la t r was drowned in gettirg a-,
st. e. Many swam net to the onoie
bi to the foreign men-of-war ia

it iatj and went to their rescue.

have been in overwhelming force,

Cheefoo, Feb. 14. -A sleamerar
rived here from Port Arthur reports
that heavy firing was heard in the
straits of Pe Cheli at midnight.
London, Feb. 13. A report orig
inating with a Japanese from hav
ing correspondents in Tokio was cir
culated in London tonight to the
t fleet that three Russian cruisers,
presumably the Vladivostok squad
ron, had been torpedoed, in the
straits of Sugaro yesterday.
.The Japanese legation has heard
nothing confirmatory of this report,
although it has come to it from sev
eral sources. The legation officials
received the report with reserve, it
being "too good to be true." The
Japanese have a strong naval base at
Kotomari, at the northern end of Nip
pon, and on the south side of the
straits, and it is considered impos
sible, should the Vladivostok squad
ron attempt to harass the coast
about Hakodate, that they will be
met by torpedo boats from Kotoma
