Kouropatkin Reports His Men Were
Betrayed by Coreans at Yon
gampho, but Pursuing Them
Enemy Rushed to Death.
ST. PETERSBURG, April 12. General
Kouropatkin, In a dispatch to the Em
peror bearing today's date, says that
General KrasnaUnskl, on the night of
April 8, ordered a detachment of sharp
shooters to cross to the left bank of tho
Yalu opposite WIJu. The sharpshooters
landed on the island of Samallnd, and
surprised a patrol of 50 Japanese scouts
Just as tho latter were approaching the
cast side of the island In three boats. The
Russians allowed the Japanese td land
and then fired on them. Nearly all the
Japanese were shot, bayoneted or drowned
and their boats sank. The Russians sus
tained no losses.
Noncommissioned Officers Louchkino
and Souhaschonov distinguished them
selves In the flght- On the following day
the Japanese lowered their flag at "WIJu
and their outposts were seen fell -back.
On the night of April 9 four Russians
crossed the Talu to Yongampho and made
toward a Russian village, where they
found a .squadron of Japanese cavalry.
They remained 12 hours, when they were
betrayed 4 by Coreans and found them
selves obliged to swim, the river, their
boat having struck on a sand bank. One
soldier lost his life.
The Japanese pursued the Russians in
a boat, but were in turn attacked by a
Russian boat, which had come to the
rescue of the swimmers. The 'Japanese
were all killed and their boats sunk.1
Gives Russia Much Satisfaction.
ST. PETERSBURG. April 12. General
Kouropatkin's report to the Emperor of
the annihilation of Japanese detachments
on the Yalu River is a matter of general
satisfaction in official circles. Again, in
the view of the officials, a Russian soldier
has proved his superiority in strategy and
in the manner of attack, which left no
chances for a single enemy to escape.
One feature of thet message which is
not pleasing to the authorities, is the
action of the Coreans in revealing to the
Japanese the presence of the Russians at

GREAT LEGAL BATTLE IS ON
Corporation Lawyers, Well Known
Throughout the Land, Represent
Petitioner as Weil as North
ern Securities Company.
ST. PAUL, April 12. A great legal bat
tle by corporation lawyors, whose names
are familiar throughout the United States,
is being waged in the United States Dis
trict Court before Judges Sanborn, Van
deventer. Hook and Thayer, the action
being based on a motion presented to the
court by D. H. Harriman et al., for leave
to file an Intervening petition for the pur
pose of showing why tho Northern Secu
rities Company's officials should not carry
out a plan of distribution of the assets bl
the recently-declared Illegal Northern Se
curities Company, In a manner alleged to
be Inimical to the interests of Harriman
and Pierce. The attorneys representing
the plaintiffs are: W. D. Guthrie, R. S.
Lovett, general counsel of the Southern
Pacific Railroad; Judge J: M. Baldwin, of
Omaha, and Maxwell Evarts, of Ohio.
The defendants were represented by
Ellhu Root, ex-Secretary of "War; John
G. Johnson, o Philadelphia; Francis
Lynde Stetson, ccunsel for J. P. Morgan
& Co.; George oung, Frank B Kellogg
and C. A. Severance; also C. W. Bunn,

Besides this array of talent, the United
States Government was represented by
District Attorney C. C. Houpt, who pre
sented an objection to the intervention,
under the direction of United States At-
tornev-General Knox. This Intervention
was something of a surprise to the
tloncrs, who xere not aware of it until
after Mr. Evarts haq, opened the case for
tho plaintiffs, w.hen Ju'dge Sanborn, asked
him if he was aware that the United
States Government objected to tho Inter
vening petition. The court then directed
Mr. Houpt to 'read the objection of Mr.
Knox, which Is as follows:
Objection Filed by Government
"I respectfully submit to the court that
notice has beeji served upon. ma that-Bd-
ward H. Harriman, WInslow S. Pierce
and the Oregon Short Una Railroad Com
pany will apply to the Judges'of .'this
court for leave to Intervene In this case,
and to be heard in respect of the final
decree of this court entered on April 3,
1903, as affirmed by the Supreme Court of
the United States, and for such other or
further or different order of relief as the
court may deem fit.
"The United States neither admits nor
denies the allegations, of the petition, but
objects to the proposed intervention. This
case was heard by this court on bill, an
swer and testimony, and a final decree was
entered, enjoining the defendants as
therein recited. Upon appeal by the de
fendants to tho Supreme Court of the
United States the decree of this court
was affirmed In every particular, the effect
of which was to end and close tho case.
Tho United States stands on tho .decree
as affirmed, and submits that the court is

only concerned to see that it is faithfully
observed by the defendants according to
Its terms. P. C. KNOX,
Mr. Evarts. In his statement, contended
that the' securities company in Its final
distribution of tho assets Intended to
take a course which would continue the
common control of the Northern Pacific
and Great Northern Railways to the det
riment of the plaintiff and in -violation of
the Sherman anti-trust law.
Mr. Root contended that there was no
warrant In the general rules of practice
In the decrees of the courts nor in the
statutes for this Intervention. He said
the decree of this court was limited to the
simple command "Thou shalt not,' and
nothing was expected but absolute obedi
ence. Courtroom Is Crowded.
The arguments of both Mr. Evarts and
Mr. Root occupied less than an hour's
time, but every word was followed with
the closest attention by the throng of at
torneys and spectators who crowded the
courtroom, the galleries, and who sat even
on tables and the steps leading to the
Mr. Root's- argument was finished Just
before noon, and when the court resumed
at- 2 o'clock, Judge Lovett began his ar
gument on behalf of the ptltioners. He
began with the contention that If the
Northern Securities Company had been
the legal owner of stock of the Northern
Pacific and the Great Northern Com
pany's It would have been entitled to the
fruits of that ownership, and the Attorney-General
would not have obtained
the relief he sought in the original suit.
The foundation of the bill In that case
was that the stock had been acquired and
held for illegal purposes. The decree of
the court had determined that no title
to the stock ever passed to the Northern
Securities Company because that com
pany was not legally capable of holding
such title. The decree further had the ef
fect of giving the court practical cus
tody of the stock of the Northern Se
Argument of Petitioners.
The petitioners, he said, were not ask
ing the courts to wind up the affairs nor
dissolve the Securities Company. They
were asking it to dispose of the stock
in what they contended was the only way
consistent with the decree of the court
The plan of distribution proposed by the
Northern Securities Company did not dis
solve the corporation. It simply reduced,
or attempted to reduce, Its stock In such
a manner as would leave the stockholders
in control of both roads.
He referred to the statement of counsel
for the Ndrthern Securities Compady to
the effect that the company might have
sold Its stockholdings, and denied this,
because- the decree of the court deter
mined that It had never owned that stock.
It "was not necesBary to enjoin a corpora
tion from selling- the stock, because it is
not customary to enjoin any one from
selling .what' he does not own. The stock
was as much in the constructive custody
Pt the -court as if it had seized It.
When Mr. Lovett concluded, ex-Congressman
James- Hamilton Lewis, of Chi

There was some discussion over the

The speech of Representative Cockran
In the House last Saturday, the Senator
declared, was because the President, fol-
lowing the example of President Cleve

land, and his Commissioner of Pensions
had Interpreted the pension act of 1S90
to mean thai it was within the power and
the duty of the Executive to stato tho
years for partial and total disability when
tho veterans could receive a pension with
out legislation. Cleveland had fixed total
disability at 75. Roosevelt had revived
the tyranny of Henry VTII, had marched
with Oliver Cromwell at the head of his
army Into the House of Representatives
and dispersed the members to their homes
and arrested the recalcitrant minority by
reducing by executive order Cleveland's
