Retvizan and Bayan Said to Be on the Beach Russian Story of Sallie of the Blocked Fleet While Attempting to . CloEe Up Channel. St. Petersburg, Jane, I3. It is reported - in naval circles here this morning that a fierce naval battle has taken place off the entrance to Port Arthur harbor, in which the battle ship Retvizan and the cruis er Bayan were so badly damaged that they had to be beached to pre- vent their sinking. ; The Japanese are reported to have lost fonr shipB during the en counter, bnt whether they were sunk or or simply so badly damag ed they were compelled to withdraw is not known. According to the report, the Jap- anase mad an attack under cover of the darkness In the early morn ing Sunday, and attempted to sink merchantmen in tbe harbor to block the entrance. They were discover ed and the shore batteries opened on them. The escorting squadron replied and poured in a hot fire on tbe forts. Several Russian- Torpedo boats sallied forth and sank a steamer which was close in-shore and head ed directly for the harbor entrance, Two Japanese cruisers attempted to cut the, Russian torpedo craft off, and tbe entire Russian squadron made a sortie and attacked the Jap anese. A battle tollowed, in wnicn some of the ships came so close to gether that their big con batteries were practical 1.7 useless. Finally tbe Japanese squadron, seeing that it was impossible to ac complish its purpose, drew off, and the remnants of the Russian fleet retired into tbe harbor. According to tbe reDort the damage to the Retvizan and Bayan is extremely serious. This is considered very unfortunate at this time, as the bat tie ebip bad just been repaired and placed in commission. Fokio, June 12.

St. Petersburg, June ll.-Two infernal machines were founds coi cealed in Tobacco boxes in. t Tsarskaye Selo palace near th city, where tbe czar and his family reside. One of the boxes was found in the dining saloon, to which room tbe imperial family were shortly to enter for the evening, meal, and tbe other in the audience chamber. The machinery In both boxes was working, and would have exploded them within half an hour. Had the machine not been found in time it is probable that the en tire palace would have been wreck ed, and all its inmates killed. , June 11.- In the higheEt Russophile circles here, a most despondent feeling has been caused by the recent news from the seat of the war in the Far East. A Russian of very high position, who is in constant touch with both ad ministrative and court circles at St. Petersburg, remarked this even ing: "In spite of the statements to the contrary," he said, "there is a very strong party among Russians of high rank and in the czar's imme diate entourage who are in favor of peace being arranged as soon as Port Arthur Falls. This is not as yet the court policy, , nor is the idea shared by the czar, but it prevails among the very influential 6et which is anxious foi the return to power of M. DaWitte, who, it will be remembered, was always oppos ed to the Russian occupation of Manchuria." St. Louis, June 11. After going Fa M over tbe transcript of the evidence taken at the inqnest over the body of Manuel Cereva, the bullfighter who was killed by E. Carlton Bass, the American matador, Wednesday, tbe prosecuting attorney directed today to release Bass. ' Tbe evidence ebowed to bis satis faction that Bass had acted in self defense in shooting Cereva, who was rushing on him with a .butch- erknife when the shot was fired. Pueblo.iColo., June 11. Gilbert H. Dodge, a livery keeper, shot and killed hia wife and Mrs. Maud Mc- Kinney on tbe priccipal business street this afternoon. The women were sitting in a carriage in frant of a fish market. ' Dodge dismount ed irom a norse on wnicn ne was riding, shot one woman in the head and the other in tbe heart and then tried to kill himself, but , did not succeed before being disarmed by the police. Mrs. McKinney is said to be the wife of Charles McKinney, of Cripple Creek, who was under arrest on the charge of being one of the men who wrecked the Short Line train bearing nonunion min ers some months ago. - The case dragged through the courts for some months, and several weeks ago tbe case against McKinney was decided in the courts at Cripple creek. In a statement, Dodge said he meant to kill his wife and her com panion because hia wiie had been untrue, and the woman with " her was responsible for leading his wife astray. "New Yojk, June 11 ' From an ambush in the shrubbery along Eastern Parkway, Brooklyn, a gang of Hoodlums attacked a passing automobile driven by Dr. H. L. Miller. The doctor's wife and Mrs. Gunderche, who occupied the seat at her side, were badly hurt, and it is feared Mrs. Gunderche will not recover. Stones, bricks and tin cans were showered on tbe party as they passed the ambush. Dr. Mil ler's arm was parah zed by a blow and the machine collided with the curb. Both women were thrown into the driveway, adding to the hurts they had already sustained. Several firemen who'happened near by hastened to the rescue, but the hoodlums escaped.

Three of the Colorado union exiles arriv ed here today and reported that 91 of them were unloaded at the state line about two miles west - of here last night, and that all excepting the three mentioned have gone west into Colorado. Mayor Standish has made no ar rangements to care for the men here, and there are ne unions to at. tend to their wants. After unload ing. the exiles, the Colorado troops fired a volley and yelled to the vic tims to hike, as their train pulled back to La -Junta. ..The en tire party of men struck out for Holly, two miles inside of the Col orado line, where they obtained food. The next town of any' im portance is Lamar, 26 miles away, and 50. miles from La Junta. - Painting and Paper Hanging. All orders promptly filled. Phone 05.

News .. Victor, Colo., June 10. Acting under the orders of Adjutant-General Sherman M. Bell, of tbe state t; oI .j 0Qji ,?.. madfl hortW ftlrer noon todav noon in the Short Line yards here for the deportation of 76 v union miners. The train comprised a combination baggage ar and two day coaches. Almost immediately the work ot loading the men began. They were marched to the train between heavy lines of militia and deputies. A crowd of fully 1000 people had collected to see the men placed on board. . Among the spectators were wives and sisters, fathers and moth ers of the deported men, and the scenes were very affecting. Mothers sisters and sweethearts criedgoodbye and tried to push through the lines for a parting handshake. Most of the women had been allowed to see their relatives at Armory Hall be fore the men were marched out. Mayor Harris of Colorado Springs bad been apprised of the decision to deport the men and immediately took steps to see that none of them landed in that city. Under his in structions a large force of officers and deputies met the special tram at 6:10 this evening tor that pur- nose. No attempt, however, was made to unload the men there, ar rangements having been previously made to send them to the Kansas state line over the Santa Fe, because of protests made against - taking them to Pqeblo or Denver and leav ing them there. . The tram stopped long enough at Colorado Springs to give the eoI- diers time to eat. lhe deported men had rations of beans and bread on board. ' - Another party of exiled men will be sent out of . the district tomorrow Sixty men confined in the Cripple Creek bullpen were taken to tbe county jail today, and charges of murder were placed against them. Shortly after 6 o'clock tonight the military committee adjourned having examined all the prisoaers and disposed of all the business be fore it. Only two men were releas ed from custody today by the committee. It is said that much testimony of an incriminatingchar acter was given by some of the military prisoners that many who were to be deported were sent to the county jail, where they will remain until arraigned in court. The deportation was carried out under the following order of Gen eral Bell, addressed to Colonel L, R. Kennedy: "Yon will proceed by thefColora- do & Cripple Creek District Rail way to Colorado Springs, thence via the Santa Fe Railroad to the east line of the state of Colo rado, taking with you the parties on the list herewith' attached, and there deposit them without the state of Colorado, returning at on . CC 10 these headquarters and make due report to me." "Within 48 hours this district will be rid of all agitators and oth er objectionable men," said Gover nor Bell. "One deportation after another will be made until none of the men who have terrorized the district so long will be left here. We intend to continue arresting men who are not wanted here, and they will be run out aa fast as pos sible. The unionists are scared. and many are leaving the country of their own volition to avoid arrest and incarceration. There are still some desperate characters among the hills, however, whom we intend getting, no matter what the coat, in running tnem aown tnere may occur some fights, but I do not look for any serious trouble." Squads are out scouring the hills in search of certain men who are wanted in connection with the In dependence assassinations. Tele grams have been sent to sheriffs and . chiefs of police at outside points," asking them to watch for thesetpersons, whose names are not mads public. It is known-Aowever, that detec tives everywlljre are .looking for Victor Poole and Sherman Parker, wno lett tbe camp alter the Inde pendence explosion. Officers in the Mineowners' Association say Poole and Parker purchased tickets over the Rock Island railroad, Poole, for Mcunne, Kan., and Parker for Kansas City, and boarded a train for Colorado Springs several hours after the explosion. This is coupled by the authorities with the fact that bloodhounds followed the trail of one of the murderers 12 miles out. and lost it at a point where he was taken into a wagon that had been waiting there, and then driven to ward Colorado Springs.- . Syracuse, Kan., June 10. Sher iff Brady, of this county, tonight received a telegram from Sheriff Barr, of La Junta, Col., stating that special train carrying deported miners from Colorado wotil 1 reach Coolidge tonight and un oad the miners in Kansas. Oit!a-!is of this county are indignant at this pro ceeding of the Colorado authorities and an appeal haB been made to Governor Bailey to prevent Colora do from dumping her alleged unde sirable citizens into Kansas. Cripple Creek, Col., June 11. - Wholesale deportations of strikers from Teller county continue today and about 200 men were sent out of this place and tbe adjoining campa. The scenes are as trying aa were those of the deportations lata yes terday afternoon, when women and children tried to break through the lines of soldiers and deputies to bid good-bye to the exiled men, many of whom were fathers of large fam ilies and a sole support. The troops and Citizens Alliance continue' the raids unceasingly, and new prisoners are constantly being brought in singly, in couples or by the dozen, to fill the pl&cee made vacant in the military BtockadeB and prisons by the deportations. The military committee at Victor did not adjourn until 7 o'clock last night, the entire seBBion being occu pied with tbe examination of pris oners. Of all thoee examined but two men were liberated, while ma ny others were removed from, the Letockades to the regular prisons, presumably because they were wanted later either as principals or witnesses in tbe more grave die turbances, Because of the ill feeling engend ered by the coroner's verdict in the Independence investigation, where in the blame for the dynamite out rage was laid at the door of con spirators in the ranks of the Wes tern Federation of Miners, General Bell took extra precautions to pre serve order last night. The guards at all the most try ing positions were doubled and the. patrols were changed more frequent ly to prevent any laxity in vigilance through weariness. The investigation the into the dynamite outrage is being con tinued today behind closed doors, and there is said to be a prospect that some of the men who were in the vicinity but a short time before the explosion will be brought to trial and shown by circumstantial evidence to at least have had knowl edge of the coming murders. General Ball seems to have as good control of situation as ever in bis assertions that he will bring or der into the district at all costs. He says mat tnere win ne probably at 1 a nnn a 1 trouble is brought to a final end, and matial law discontinued in the district. Paris, June 11. A dispatch from Fez, Morocco, says Kaid Omar El youssi, governor of tbe province of Sefrou, has been assassinated. He was assailed by tbrt-e men, who sprang upon him as he n eared the courtyard of hia residence and stab bed him to deathj - The-cause of the assassination is not known, but it is not believed that it has other than an indirect connection with the acts of brigand age which has thrown the country into a turmoil. Washington, June 11. President Roosevelt has not yet taken up the Colorado matter. Before replying to tbe Western Federation's appeal for an investigation it is probable that the president will call on Gov ernor Peabody and other officials for a report. .
