WallacB, Idaho, March
A. Middlekauf. was killed
M.; Odell seriously injured by fall
ing 2OQ feet from a balloon while J
giving a doable ascension here this
afternoon. The men were 'seated
in a parachute and when they, had
ascended 2OO feet .the lower part of
the balloon tore' away. The para
chute; wbold not open, and both
fell among the spectators with ter
rific force, j.
A young boy was caught by, the
falling balloon and badly burned.
Middlekauf had nearly every bone
in his body broken while Odell had
none. . The latter is injured intern
ally. ' ;
Several hundred people had as
sembled in various parts of the city
to witness, the ascension. . .Many
were present from the canyon towns,'
the Northern Pacific tram being:
held until after the two aeronauts
had made their parachute jumps.
As toon as the balloon left the
ground, to the horror oft he nearby
spectators, the lower part of. the
bag could be seen rippmg awa.
WarBings were shouted to the two
unfortunate men, but they .could
not hear, the alarm. . , " . c - :
, Although the flight -took but a
few moments, Odell.'.who. lis the
more expsrt of the two, . could; be
seen attempting to force his paraf
ghute dpen, butoncooujtoXthe
sBorl"'distaoce U'wduIcFpol yieldT
Both men were close together, and
while Odell endeavored to open his
parachute he could be observed
holding his ; companion by ; the
shoulder in attampt to save him if
his parachute opened. Middlekauf
made no movement, simply cljng
ing to the ropes.: . . .
I he tnud made by ine two men
I when they fell could be heard for
1 over a Dioctr, toe ground beine in
dentrd where they .alighted. Both
btruck the ground near one another
and tit the same time, both barely
grazing the furnace where the bal
loon was inflated. . ; . . . .
, Odell fell in a more relaxed man
ner, and his fall was partially brok
en by Middlekauf, which accounts
for his leeser injuries. Both were
rendered unconscious by the terri
ble fall, but Odell soon recovered,
and, although in frightful pain, was
able to talk.-.. , )
he went to Niu-Chang, where , he
had every opportunity to become
familiar with the situation from the
Russian, standpoint. When hoetiU

Portland, March' 14. Henry B.
Miller, recently appointed consul
general for the 'United States at
Yokohama, Japan, was in Portland
today, and. last evening delivered
an illustrated lecture . in the inter
ests of the Maxamas; telling of the
controversy and causes that brought
the present war. between Russia and
Japan in the Orient. ' Mr, Miller
whose home is at Eugene, though
he has large business Interests at
Grant's Pass, expects to leave San
Francisco for his new station April
8, and declares He - expects to be
busy, as many problems will arise
both during the war and at its con
clusion. Mr. Miller was for three
years, during the most turbulent
times. of recent" history,- consul at
Niu Chwang, and says be .watched
at no great distance'- the prepara
tions made by Japan to launch her
self into the present struggled ; --1
"I have taken, deep interest V in
Oriental conditions and the circum
stances' creating them,'.' said Mr.
Miller soon after he arrived in Port
land from Eugene 4hia mofningi
'The; Japanese were thoroughly
ready lor the combat. ' They pre
pared themselves for ;i years,' while
the Russians rested firm in the be
lief that the Mikado would: not
fight.' - Then, when " the blow came
Russia was not ready.'' - ,j :
t Mr. Miller was at 'Shanghai dur
iogjhe Boxer troubles in, China in
1900, and soon after the . relief of
the legations at Pekin he went for
ward to that station, where he re
mained during what he ' playfully
terms the "reconstruction' period."

that the 'Manchnrian .army -is al
ready, cut' off and confirming - in
formation already received that the
retirement is in full progress, throw
no further light on the condition of
the losses of the army, and contain
no disquieting information, :
. The city of Fakoman, which is
wHl in the Russian rear, has been
seized by forces given out ' as Chin.
ese bandits, but which may- be a
vanguard of Japanese . regulars.
From Fakoman one road leads to
Kaiyuah, about 12 miles north of
Tie Pass, and the great Chinese
road runs northward, paralleling
the railroad and offering. to a force
there the alternative of striking the.
Russian line or pushing on toward
the Sungari river along the high
way, which is betterthan the road
over which General ' Linievitch will
have to retreat. The new command
er will need all the strategic quali
ties of Kuropatkin to effect the
withdrawal in safety, ,
How far or r how rapidly , Field
Marshal Oyama will be able to con
tinue pursuit remains 1 to be eeen,
but the Chinese at Harbin - expect
him there April 10, and - if this
opinion proves to be founded on a
Japanese proclamation, many per

ment of Oyama's assurances regard-
March iU, will be inclined . to name
three weeks as the limit.
The lapse of a full week since the
beginning ot the retreat from Muk
den finds Russia in almost complete
ignorance of the details as to the
effect of that reverse. KnropatkiD,
before relinquishing his baton pro
fessed himself unable to estimate
losses, and no dispatches referring
to the number of prisoners have
been allowed to sift - through the
strict censorship. The public sim
ply knows that the list of killed,
wounded and . prisoners is" very
great, and is prepared to believe
them enormous, though one Rus
sian correspondent expresses the
belief that they will not exceed 80,
000, all told. The full story of the
awful retreat from Mukden to Tie
Pass also remains to be told. Later
reports received confirm the first
statement, that the bulk of the
armies retired in good order, the
momentary panics affectiDg only
the ' soldiers who were crowded
among the transports in charge of
undisciplined officers and fleeing
civilians, causing the loss, however,
of a great amount of supplies and a
number of cannon which otherwise
they would have been able to bring
off., s - : : '
