WEDNESDAY APRIL 26 1905
Siigon, April 2i According to
the last news received here, the
Russian equadroa was 15 miles
from the coatt. The vessels were
stsering northward. : - ,
London, April 24. A dispatch
from Manila, April 22, to the Daily
Mail says: ;
"Vice-Admiral Togo's main fleet
will assemble off Formosa on April
"The Japanese counsel here has
received a long cipher message con
cerning Kamimura's squadron,
which is expected tomorrow, Sun
day. - The const:! eays the shipB
will not enter Manila harbor but
will cruise outside. -
"There is great official activity
here. The Ameiican admiral, the
Japanese consul and the general in
command have held conferences.
Tbe admiral on Monday will 'con
fer with Governor-General Wright."
1 he correspondent at Saigon of
the Daily Mail, under dat9 of April
22, states that the Russian squac
ron is short of stores and thtit
French and German ships are leav
ing baigon almost daily with huge
supplies and dispatches, and that
other steamers are being chartered
for the same purpose. . :
London, April 22. A; report is
circulated hete to the effect that
the Japanese consul at Manila has
received a wireless message from
Admiral Togo etating that he ex
pected to engage the Russian fleet
shortly off the island of Formosa.
London, April 22. A dispatch
to the Central ' NewB from Paris
states that it is anoounced there
Rojestvensky left Kamranh Bay
today for the , island of Hainan,
where the. vessels go to coal. Hai
nan is a large island north of Kam
ranh Bay, in the gu'f of Ponquin,
and beloDgsto China.
A Toklo dispatch states that the
ministry if marine announces that
trustworthy eye witnesses report
the four Rusrian cruise'rs today out
side of Kamranh' '..harbor and seven
battleships icside. " "
feix other warships were 'noticed
frO'YWwhlch c.gntant etreama of
datks -colored oily mod . are- still
flowing in great quantities? About
the same time the upper aide of the
big fill across b:g canyon : Bank, 40
feet, ; 'Tnis phenomenon occurred
abj'iril0:30 o'clock thlscoorning.
The fill across big canyon es built
about six years ago by theMcCJoud
River Railway-Company and - was
considered one of the safest fills' on
the entire road. '
:s The sinking of tha fill and the
upheyal in Sisaon occurring at the
same time giye ground for much
spetuiation as to the probable cause.
Maii of the older citizens here, are
inclUicd to favor the. theory: that
Mt; ahaeta is on the verge of anoth
er upheaval. In support of such a
theory they point out that there has
beea.no recent .cold spell followed
by f lidden thaw or heavy; rains
whichv might cause a slide. .: The
M 'id Ri vpf RaLI way , Com nany
regard to the cause ot the einkmg
of their roadbed. They intend- to
rebuild across Big canyon at once
and say their trains will soon be
running to Upton again.
Sisson is built on a hillside and
is divided by the Southern Pacific
railroad. Koletzka's livery stable
is situated on the highest side,
about 500 yards from the railroad.
- Wiaen the mud first began flow
ing from the lot above the - livery
stable Mrs. Koletzka was at the
barn, alone. She saw at once the
mud would flood the town if left to
Its : own course, so she gave an
alarm and soon had men at work
digging trenches from the barn to
the main sewer ditch. The trench
es, however, cannot carry the vol
ume ot flowing mud. and the
streets below are gradually filling
- Some of the mud was thrown in
to a pale of clear water and an oily
substance soon covered the toD of
the water, which would indicate
the piesence of much oil. It is re
ported here tonight that the mesa
above town is gradually sinking in
It is well known that the level
land in this section has only a thin
sod surface. The subsoil is a soft,
spongy mass. The Southern Paci
fic 'people have had trouble with
their roadbed between here and
Up.oafor fifteen years, owing: to
the rottenness of the -land under
the top surface.
, Some claim that the now of mud
was started by the sinking of the"
mesa above and that it broke out
in the yard of the livery stable be
cause tbe horses running, on tbe lot
had worn the surface there thin and
therefore there was an easy outlet
for the pressure caused by the sink
ing of the mesa. Judge Jesse Burge
says he remembers that seven or
eight years ago the mud started to
boil up as it did today, but it only
flowed for an hour or so. The mud
is yet flowing and the volume in
creases every hour. Hundreds of
people yisited the scene today.
