Chicago, May 17. When -"DoO'
tor Hannieh, leader 01 the eun
worshippers' cult, is placed on trial
on May 26, charged with "piactic-
me medicine without a license," he
will have to face serious charges of
torturing bis patients by using a
machine carrying 20 needles attach
ed to a spring. lhese are sunk
deep into the flesh, and inysteriouB
oil is rubbed into the wound. This
is said to cause great pain and re
sult in horrible blisters and running
tteorge liilbert said ma wile was
thus treated by two of Hannish'a
women helpers, and that she was
subjected to the ordeal even after
she was 0:1 the verge 01 death irom
starvation and pain; that even the
day upon which his wife died these
two women came to the house and
would have "treated" her but he
drove them away.
Dr.. Mary McKibbon -Harper says
she was called to attend Mies
Reuase when she was taken to the
hospital just prior to being ad i Ode
ed insane and taken to Elgin, where
she is now confined. Dr. McKib
ben-Harper says she found Miss
Keusse s back in a inghtlol condi
tion, caused evidentlo by the needle
treatment. Her back was literally
covered with soree, and she groaned
and wept con tin Dally from the pain
From members ot the cult it was
learned that followers afflicted with
any ailment were tortured.
"Yes, we plunge needles into the
flesh and then rub oil in the
wounds," admitted Dr. J. H. Lowe,
a dentist. . "The needles go far into
the flesh, and' then' the' oil ' causes
blietsrs and sores to form. This
draws poison out of the syatem and
cures tne patient.
Mrs Isaac Henry strong, a high
priestess of the sun worshippers
not only admitted, but boasted that
the sick and afflicted were punished
with needles and burning oil. "It
is one way to subjugate the . flesh
and to drive out the devil," she
said : "There are sot enough pores
in the skin to let in all the sunshine
that the system needs, and bo the
needles are used for this reason."
While Hannish denies that he
tortures his followers in . order to
teach them what he terms "flesh
subjugation." he alludes throughout
all his literature to the ordeal, and
those who stand it , without crying
out in pain are lauded for their
"master over the body. .

The evacuat on was made in per

Japanese advance will be resisted
at Haicheng and Liaoyang, where
7o,ooo men are now encamped.

retirement if the Russians are de

the Japanese are now within 15
miles of Haicheng.

300 Chinese police. Everything is
quiet and orderly.

Japanese warships appeared off Kai

expected to arrive here tomorrow
and take possession of the town,
having gained, as far as this city is
concerned, a bloodless victory.

Chicago, May 17. Prince Pu
Lun. ot China, made an address in
Chinese to an audience of 7UU stu
dents at tbe University of Chicago
yesterday. His remarks were in
terpreted by General Wong, a Yale
graduate. 1 he prince said:
"From the time I landed at San
Francieco during my entire visit to
j our country I have been most sur
prised to find that every man ' and
woman in America is educated.
This I believe is the basis of the
success of the American people."
General Wong also spoke, mak
ing a plea for the easy admission to
the United States of Chinese etu
deute. He said:
"One-fourth of the Chinese stu
dents who were in this country
when I was in college at Yale have
since fallen in battle, shot in front.
To get shot in front is something
thev learned in America."
; county, terrorizing the settlers and
scattering the mange with their
herds of woree than useless ponies.
Great uneasiness exists here and
fears are expressed that tbe degra
dations of the savages mav result
in seriouB hostilities.
Already much damage to the
stock interests has been -done,
and if something - is . not done to
check the incursion of the Indians,
the losses to ranchmen will mount
into the thousands by reason of the
spreading of disease ' among the
vast herds of cattle and horses
which are on the Grant county
range. . .
Inspector George Irvin, of Mon
ument, inspected a number of In
dian ponies when they first reached
the county and fonnd ten of them
badly diseased. He wired the state
veterinary for instructions. That
Officer being sick, Secretary of state
Dunbar wired Irvin to kill the die
eased animals, providing it could
be done at county expense.
There are about 5U0 Cay uses on
the lowor John Day river, and al
though the Indians are expected to
resist, Inspector Irvin says he will
carry out his instructions. It is
believed by ranchmen here that a
serious clash will occur immediate

of the bucks engaged in a duel near
the South Fork bridge, using their
spurs as weapons. One of tbe In
dians was so badly lacerated that
death ensued shortly afterward.
This seemed to Bobar the Indians,
and, binding the body of the dead
warrior on the back of a packhorse,
his bead on one side and feet on the
other, they 3truck out over the
mountains toward the Columbia in
the direction of Arlington. It is
said that a second body, believed to
be that of a child, was carried a

Chicago, May 17. Three high
waymen attempted to rob a United
States registered mail wagon early
today near the Chicago and North

cidental discharge of a revolver frus

after a duel with the police.
When the driver of the wagon, E.
J. Graff, was driving past an al
ley three men ran into the street in
front of the team. Two of the men
tried to stop the horses by grabbing
the bridles, and the third undertook
to climb on the seat. The one who
was making an effort to get on the
seat fired a shot which was appar
ently accidental, and the horses
jumped. Graff plied the whip at
the same time and tbe team lunged
ahead.' Shots were fired after the
wagon but the driver would not

Quincy,- Mass., May 17. The
battleship Rhode Island was launch
ed today at the yards of tbe , Fore
River Ship & Engine Company.
After the vessel had left the ways,
the launching crew experienced an
unexpected disaster. The great
craft had attained such headway
that she could not be stopped in
deep water, and her anchor failing
to hold, her stern was forced into a
mud bank. Three tngs made fast
to her as soon as possible, but the
tide tell rapidly, and they were un
able to move her. The company
sent to BoEton for additional tugs,
and it is expected the battle ship
wouid be released before the next
flood tide. A naval inspector who
was on the scene expressed the o-
pinion that the bottom was soft, the
ship would not be damaged in the
