A NAVAL BATTLE
REPORT OF AN ENGAGEMENT
OFF PORT ARTHUR.
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.

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. ' Despite vigor

Coolidge, Kan.. June 11. 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

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.
