Russians Strike Terror
to Hearts of Enemy.
SQUADRON CUT TO PIECES

and I heir Horses Wounded.
HOT SKIRMISH AT VAFANGOW
Japanese Used the Trick of Display
ing Dummies, but the Rus
clans Waste No Shots
' v' on Them.
L.IAO TANG, May 30 (delayed in trans
mission). The Japanese lost -200 men
killed and a number of horses in the
cent at Vafangow today. The Russians
opened fire at 8 in the morning, and after
two hours and a half long-range firing
xne Japanese, under General Akkiama,
prepared to charge and crush the force
which had been harassing them for 21
In the meantime. General Samsonott
was approaching Vafangow with a
strong force of cavalry. It was a sight
worth seeing, when, at the word of com
mand, the Russian squadrons formed
and rushed like a whirlwind across the
terribly cut-up country, clearing -awav
all obstacles, the Japanese at the same
time trotting along the frightful roads.
Having passed the railroad station, the
xroops came under the fire of the Jap
anese machine guns, but withdrew with
out suffering much loss.
The Fourth and Sixth Companies of the
Eighth Siberian Cossacks furiously
charged the Japanese cavalry with
lances, attacking both flanks. In a few
minutes they literally cut the whole
squadron into pieces. This was the first
time the lances were used, and they
struck terror Into the enemy. In some
cases the lances pierced the riders
through and wounded their horses. Some
of the lances could not be withdrawn
from the bodies into which they had en
tered. The Japanese infantry, numbering four
battalions, of 300 men to a company, and
a squadron of cavalry, attempted to ad
vance, but the Russian batteries opened
fire, and soon the slope up which the
enemy was advancing was covered with
black spots, and the enemy was forced
to scatter and retire. Some of the Jap
anese cavalry were wonderfully dashing,
charging -with shouts upon the Russians,
who met and scattered them.
A Cossack who had lost his lance and
sword wrenched a sword from a Jap
anese officer and cut off the officer's
The Cossacks picked up boots which
had been taken off by the Japanese In
order to facilitate their flight, and flour
ished them on tnelr lances as , trophies.
The Japanese used the trick of display
ing dummies, but the Cossacks, did not
waste a shot on them.
Wounded Russians Reach Mukden.
3IUKDEN, June L A hospital train ar
rived last night with wounded from the
fighting at Vagenfuchu, bringing three of
ficers and 23 men. General Kuropatkln
visited them, complimented them on their
bravery, and awarded eight crosses of St.
George. Four of those wounded at Va-
fangow were left at Liao Yang in too
serious a condition to be moved. Some of
these have four to six bullet wounds. One
of the wounded said:
"These Japanese fight very well. Shoot
ing is their strong point, but the Cossack
lance charge completely surprised them.
Many of the Japanese were ridden down.
Others ceased firing and fled."
Japanese agents are believed to be nego
tiating with Chun Chu leaders with the
object of employing them against the
One Squadron Annihilated.
ST. PETERSBURG, June 1. General
Sakaroft has telegraphed as follows, under
today's date, to the general staff:
"According to reports, the fJapanese
commander .In the action of May 30 near
Vafangow had three battalions of Infantry
in reserve. Our losses were 17 men killed
and 23 men wounded and Lieutenant Meyer
and another officer, whose name has not
been ascertained, wounded. The Japanese
losses were very considerable. One squad
ron of the Thirteenth Japanese Cavalry.
was annihilated In a hand-to-hand en
counter, and another squadron which came
to Its assistance, suffered great loss from
the fire of our frontier guards and rifle
men. "We captured 19 horses."

Mav 30. says General Samsomoff attacked
the Japan esse near the railroad a mile from
Vagenfuchu station. A cornet of the
frontier guards was the hero .of the
fight. His sergeant was lying wounded,
and a Japanese officer was about to ride
over lilm when the cornet killed the offi
cer, mounted his horse,- and placed the
wounded man on his own charger. The
Japanese cavalry engaged were the Thir
teenth Regiment. Their horses were
FEARS NO SUCH ATTACK.
Russia Does Not Believe Army Is
Headed for Northern Corea.
ST. PETERSBURG, June 1. The War
Office does not believe the report from
Toklo that a Japanese division has em
barked for Northern Corea to check an
alleged advance of LJeutenant-General
Unevltch's army. A high military offi
cial points out that Llnevltch would havo
had to march 300 miles over difficult
roads and to assure supplies for that dis
tance before he could get within striking
reach of the Japanese army.
The authority admits that such a task
is impossible, and not worth attempting,
since It would Imperil the Japanese sup
plies in Manchuria, which are coming by
sea. The Japanese are more likely to re
inforce their armies In Southern Man
churia or on the Liao Tung Peninsula,
where it is believed they are concentrat
ing every available man.
The Admiralty attributes the failure to
destroy the crippled cruiser Bogatyr to
the absence of Japanese warships near
A private letter from Llao Yang, dated
May 24. says General Kuropatkln then
had 140.000 men ready to take the field.
The War Office has received reports
showing the continued desire of the Jap
anese to screen the operations before
Thero Is not the slightest foundation
for the report that the Russians will
abandon their positions east of HaJ
Cheng. General Samsomoff, who Is ope-
rating south of Kai Chou, Is said to have
a strong force of troops, and 13 likely to
hras3 the Japanese outposts.
As regards the operations north of
Feng Wang Cheng, the Cossacks have re-'
tired from Salmatsza with the additional
loss of two officers and seven men
wounded. Salmatsza Is now being held
by a strong Japanese garrison.
JAPANESE MINES EXPLODED.
Russians Continue to Clear the Port
6T. PETERSBURG. June L The fol
lowing dispatch from Viceroy Alexleff to
the Emperor, dated May 21, has been re
"Rear-Admirals Wlttsoeft and Grlgoro
vitch report that up to May 28- numerous
Japanese mines had been discovered and
exploded in the roadstead of Port Ar
thur. The Japanese evidently have re
placed the fireships which they formerly
used, by mines sown by merchant steam
ers m their service."
The Emperor has received the following
dispatch from General Kuropatkln, dated
"All Is quiet in the direction of Feng
"Wang Cheng. Siu Ten has not been occu
pied by Japanese detachments.
"On May 30, two camps of Japanese In
fan try and 30 dragoons advanced along
the Takushan road towards Onalassi for
the purpose of turning the left flank of our
outposts. Our scouts discovered the move
ment and firing ensued, in the course of
which one Cossack was wounded and one
horse was killed.
"The Japanese detachment, which our
cavalry successfully engaged May 30, Is
now stationed four versts from Vafangow,
fortifying Its position.
"There have been further Japanese ad
vances from Saimatza toward Feng Chow
Ung Pass on the Llao Yang road."
PEACE RUMORS BOOM STOCKS.
British Foreign Office and HayashI
Both Term Them Groundless.
LONDON, June 1. Rumors of mediation
in the Japanese war caused a rise of
per cent in. consols and a general upward
tendency on the London Exchange this
afternoon, but the rumors have found no
confirmation in diplomatic circles. The
Foreign Office characterizes the report
that mediation Is pending In the lmmedi
ate future as "rubbish."
Baron Hayashi, who as Japan's senior
Minister and foremost diplomatic repre
sentative abroad, would be the first to
hear of any such move, says:
"Not the whisper of mediation has
reached me. For us to stay our hands at
this moment would be senseless folly.
Russia appears to bo In a serious di
lemma. She has. not enough men In the
field to cope with our various points of
attack. If she' sends reinforcements that
General Kuropatkln so much needs, she
cannot feed them.
"I cannot credit the rumor in Rome of
General Kuropatkln's defeat, although
during the next few days news of a bat
tle may come at any moment.
"It seems evident that Kuropatkln in
tends to fight at Liao Yang. I believe
he has decided to do this not so much
from a military point of view as because
of the pressure from the court and ofH
cers at St Petersburg.
"About a month Is likely to elapse be
fore any determined assault can be made
on Port Arthur."

No local disturbances are feared, the
Corean court being dominated by Jap

the Emperor to remove the residents to

JAPANESE HAVE SPECIAL GUN
Light Machine Weapon Was Invented
When War Appeared Probable.
VICTORIA, B. C, June L An ex-Cap-taln
of Japanese artillery, bound for Lon
don, England, who arrived here on the
Empress of Japan last night, on official
business, said Japanese military chiefs
made preparations some years ago for
dealing with the peculiar fighting tactics
of the Cossacks. A special light machine
gun. Invented by a Japanese engineer. Is
carried on a pony accompanying each de
tachment. It has a greater range than
the Nordenfeldt and can be operated by
four men. It Is with these deadly weapons
that the Japanese are wiping out the Cos
sack sotnias wherever they meet them.
He says the Japanese artillery proficiency
was acquired In long secret practice with
the Arlsaka gun. at all ranges and regard

"While It! is known that the Russians
received reports from Mukden last night
giving the losses sustained by them during
the fight at Klnchou and Nanshan Hill

not talk on the subject. The officers
are desperately gloomy. The press bulle

Russians Find Food Scarce.
SEOUL, June L The Russian bands

difficulties. The countryside is lily sup

has been no trade at Yensan and Song

WOMAN GAGGED AND BEATEN.
Mysterious Assault Committed on a
SPOKANE, Wash.. June L (Special.)
Brutally beaten, bound and gagged by a
fiend, Mrs. Katie O'Connor, a frail woman
advanced In years, lies at the hospital
hovering between life and death. The cir
cumstances surrounding the assault make
up a mystery. Mrs. O'Connor was found
In a semiconscious condition on the north
end of the Division-street bridge tonight.
The gag conslted of a brown rubber ball
wound over with a dirty, greasy rag,
which had been forced Into her mouth
,and tied tightly around her head.
The officers were unable to take off the
gag until they cut away a portion of the
woman's hair. When the gag was re
moved Mrs. O'Connor was only able to say
that she had been assaulted and beaten
by a man who lived in a shack next to the
one she occupied. She did not know the
name of the man, nor could she give any
reason for the assault.
To all appearances no criminal assault
was attempted, and the woman's story
that the motive was robbery Is discredited

LONG -DELAYED WEDDING
LEWISTON HAS COURTED PORT
LAND MANY YEARS.
Railroad to RIparia or Celilo Canal
Would Form Bond of Wedlock,
but Seattle Is Hot Rival. '
"For years the Lewiston country has
been courting Portland," said C. F. Allen,
a manufacturer and banker of Idaho,
yesterday, "but the wedding has not yet
taken place. What we want Is a rail con
nection between our country and the Ore
3Ir.. Allen Is president of the First Na
tional Bank of Clarkston, Wash., and is
also president of the Valley Lumbering &
Manufacturing Company. Clarkston is a
town of 2500 inhabitants situated Just
across the river from Lewiston. Mr. Allen
is in Portland buying machinery and this
reminded him to make a protest.
"Five years ago," said he, "I was build
ing a factory in Idaho and needed $15,000
worth of machinery. After a while I
purchased it at Seattle, and later sonle
Portland dealers asked me why I had
not bought it here. The reason was that
the Puget Sound houses had their adver
tising matter and catalogues all through
Idaho and their traveling representatives
Siunted me up. I never heard of or from
a Portland firm in this connection."
An open river is the ultlmathule of Mr.
Allen's hope. But he expects to have to.
wait many a long moon before the steam
boats run through to Lewiston from
"The Celilo Canal will help us greatly,"
said Mr. Allen, "but I think the RIparia
Railroad will be built before the rii'er Is
open all the way to my home. Of course
the Northern Pacific, which now carries
all our trade to Spokane and Seattle, will
oppose the building by the O.- K. & N. of
this CS-mlle road, which would divert the
travel to Portland. SU11 public- senti
ment is growing on this point and It is
the all-powerful element In the conduct
of this country's affairs. I trust that the
Portland commercial Interests will not let
tho question sleep."
Mr. Allen went on to explain the ab
surdity of the transportation conditions
existing at Lewiston.
"The distance to Seattle Is longer by
300 and odd miles than the distance to
Portland. The road to Seattle Is up grade
and crosses the Cascade mountains. The
grade to Portland Is down the river all
the way. And yet I can leave Lewiston
at S o'clock In the evening and get into
Seattle about the same time as I can
reach Portland. Isn't this wrong?
Doesn't it operate to the disadvantage of
Portland's commercial Interests?"
As an aid to obtaining an open river.
which work must be done by the Gov
ernment, Mr. Allen suggests that every
business man In Portland who is not a
native of Oregon interest the Congres
sional Representatives of the state he
came from In the matter.
I have done this with the Senators and
Representatives of Wisconsin, where I
lived for many years," said Mr. Allen. "I
have shown them the tremendous com
mercial Importance of a great Inland
waterway, and whenever the question Is
brought up In Congress, I think you will
find that the support of Wisconsin's Rep
resentatives will be given to the project
Seattle and Spokane, of course,, have al
ways opposed It and always will."
