Russians Expect Great Battle
at Port Arthur.
Authorities Continue to Profess Con
fidence In Stoessel's Ability to
Hold Out, but the General
Public Is Without Hope.
ST. PETERSBURG. Nov. 3. (2:40 A.
M.) There is much'anxlety here over the
military situation. Little news has been
received from Mukden, General Sakha-
roff's telegram o November 1 merely ln-
dicating that matters -were at a. deadlock
around Shakhe. The Japanese have made
some tentative moves on both flanks,
which were checked, but there are no
signs yet of a general advance by their
General Sakharofl! telegraphs that Tues
day night was quiet, the Japanese, how
ever, showing marked signs of recommenc
ing the offensive againstthe Russian left
wing. They have also reoccupled the vil
lage of Sandlapu, near the Hun River, in
front'of the Russian right flank. '
Foreign reports from Port Arthur are
decidedly gloomy. While the authorities
continue to profess confidence in General
Stoessel's ability to hold out, the popular
feeling Is that the heroic garrison, which
already has made a historic defense, must
now be near the limit of human endur
ance. The official reports from Tokio describing
the desperate asaults on the fortress, be
ginning October 26, have created visible
depression at the "War Office. The sus
tained character of the bombardment
with siege guns and the breaching of the
walls by underground mines, but above
all the fact that the Japanese govern
ment, after weeks of silence regarding the
operations of the besiegers, has given out
these reports before actual success has
crowned their efforts, convinces the mili
tary authorities that after long prepara
tions General Nogl is not only making a
supreme effort to carry the fortress but
feels so confident of success that the re
sult of the preliminary operations has
been made public
They believe the -assault was timed for
the announcement of the fall of the -fortress
to be made upon the birthday of the
Mikado tomorrow, which by a strange
coincidence Is the 10th anniversary of
the accession of Emperor Nicholas, and a
great Russian holiday. Tomorrow, there
fore, is expected to be marked by fate for
a day of immense rejoicing either for
Japan or Russia, according as the present
assault succeeds or fails.
In the face of the gloomy reports direct
from Tokio, the Invalid Russ, the army
organ, today announces that the storm
ing operations ended with a repulse of the
Japanese on Monday, but the paper falls
to give its authority for this Important
statement. No .official report warranting
It has been received by the War Office.
Russians Turn Water on Them but
They Hold Bast.
CHEFOO, Nov. 3 (Noon.) Japanese ar
riving from Dalny today report that the
Japanese have captured Rlhlung Moun
tain" and Sungshu Mountain, which lies
between the railroad and Rlhlung Moun
tain. 'They also report that the Japan
ese have captured East Keekwan Moun
tain. Conservative Japanese, realising the in
tense desire of the Japanese for good
news on the Emperor's birthday, receive
the foregoing reports with reserve. Re
garding the capture of Rlhlung and Sung
shu Mountains, the report is not consid
ered Improbable, but Japanese eay ltls
not Intended to occupy East Keekwan
Mountain. In August the Japanese suc
ceeded in entering East Keekwan fort, as
was related in these dispatches at that
time, but under the concentrated fire qf
me omer ions iney were compelled to re
tire. Japanese officers here say it is Im
possible to hold East Keekwan. and there
fore an attack on that position is pre
sumably only a feint.
When the Japanese occupied the Russian
trenches on Rlhlung Mountain It is said
the Russians turned a current of water
into the trenches, but that the Japanese
held fast. Previous to this Japanese
shells exploded two land mines on Rlhlung
Japanese Successes Reported.
TOKIO, Nov. 2. Manchurlan headquar
ters, in a report dated November 1, says:
"On the afternoon of October 30. in
front of the left detachment of the left
army, a force of the enemy, consisting
of a regiment of infantry, three regi
ments of cavalry and two batteries of
artillery, advanced from Ldtewentun,
Hansantai and the northward. Our de
tachment, after the fight, succeeded in
repulsing the enemy.
"Our detachment sustained only
a slight loss, while the enemy's cavalry
lost heavily. Fifty of the Russians lost
their horses. The Russian cavalry re
treated In all directions and in disorder,
leaving 13 dead.
"The left column of the left army, on
tho night of October 30; seized and
burned a village about 400 yards north
west of Chengllenpao. '
Big Guns of Russians Silent.
TERS, Nov. 1, via FuBan. Nov. 2. After
-weeks of constant artillery fire, varied
with frequent infantry skirmishes. Gen
eral Kuroki s army has enjoyed a day of
perfect quiet. For the first time since
the battle of the-Shakhe River, no big
suns from tne Russian side have been
fired. There is. however, constant rifle
shooting between the Japanese and Rus
sian trenches, -which are quite near each
other at many places along the front.
Casualties From Sniping Large.
TERS IN THE FIELD. vlaTusan. Nov.
2. Whenever a Russian or a Japanese
exposes his head, he draws the fire of
an opponent. A constant exchange of
shots between the outposts continues
daily. The Russian casualties from snip
ing are large. The Chinese are busy
carting in grain along and between the
lines of both armies, and are almost In
different to the shooting.
Russians Explode Mines.
CHEFOO, Nov. 3. A censored dispatch
fromthe Associated Press correspondent
with the Japanese Army does not give
any particulars of a general engagement
going on at Port Arthur, but It Is certain
that it occurred and that some forts -were
captured. Terrific explosions beard" here
indicate that the Russians have exploded
mines and destroyed other property.
Ziiinsky Slated for Chief of Staff.
ST. PETERSBURG, Nov. 2. It is re
ported that General Ziiinsky, Vlcepy
AlexlefTs chief of staff, will become chief
of the general staff, succeeding General
Sakharoff, the present Minister of War.
who was chief of staff under General Ku
ropatkin. and whose place has been only
provisionally filled by General Proloff
since SakharofTs promotion.
Russia Will Ignore Protest of Japan.
ST. PETERSBURG. Nov. 2. Russia will
probably decide to ignore the Japanese
protest regarding Russian troops wearing
Chinese clothes, as Japan did in the case
of the Russian protest in regard to the
Russian torpedo-boat destroyer Ryeshltel
nl, cut out of Chefoo harbor by the Jap
ponese. Stoessel Submits Names of Heroes.

County Hospital Cares for These In
an Isolated Ward.
about outdoor treatment for tubercular
patients at the county hospital, Dudley
Evans, County Health Officer, says the
cuuniy nas never at one time naa over
eight such patients at Its hospital, and a
great tent with a wooden floor and open
windows for proper ventilation .is and has
been the "ward" for these cases. This Is
located 500 feet from the other buildings.
It was first introduced by ex-County Phj
siclan Dr. Harry F. McKay, and has been
continued by his successor, Dr. Geary.
Referring to a pavilion for consumptives.
Mr. Evans says:
Thle matter is one that has been given
considerable study by the County Judge
and Commissioners and the advice ot
County Physician Geary, State Health Of
ficer Woods Hutchinson and other sanitarians
has been sought as regards the feasibility ot
such an Institution in connection with the hos
pital as it now stands. The enterprise would
entail a much larger outlay of money than Is
generally figured 'on by persona unacquainted
with the situation. To begin with, the neces
sity of a proper sewer outlet has been the
malii drawback, bb until the advent of the
"septic tank" the- sewerage has been sunk la
the ground In "cesspools" and hn found Its
way Into the creek running- along1 the Canyon
Road, to the great discomfort of persons trav
eling thereon, not to speak of the onier con
siderations from a sanitary point of view. The
subject of a tubercular part 11 on was the foun
dation for a special article in the yearly re
port of the County Board of Health handed in
last January. The County Board. In company
with B. P. Geary. County Physician, and
Woods Hutchinson, State Health Officer, made
a special trip to the farm and hospital sev
eral months back to review the situation there
with the "tubercular" cubject as a prominent
He commends the condition of the Coun
ty Hospital as'a whole, and also has the
following remarks to make UDon the sub
If there is any one place more than ail others
that the County Judge and Commissioners are
inclined to favor In the matter of a judicious
expenditure of a little money, the County Hos
pital has been the one nearest their hearts.
.For the Immediate future and until other
plans are more fully decided on the building
formerly used as a carriage house Is talked of
being fitted up for the consumptives, thus
Isolating them- entirely fromother patients.
Of course the approval of the rcss and pub
lic is expected and desired in the promotion
of all work of this character, and the fact
that such approval will be given, will without
s doubt hasten the work of recontnructlon now
In progress. At some time In the near future
a more modern building may take the place of
the old wooden buildings now In use. The ob
ject of those In charge at present has been all
aiong io mast sucn additions oa regards
sewers, water eupply, etc.. as to be of per
manent value.
NATIONAL. League committees have
evolved sets of rules governing the
playing of a game of baseball, but it
seems that they have neglected to com
pile a chapter bearing upon the rules of
etiquette to be followed by players In
their associations with the public Ob
serving this shortcoming. Municipal
Judge Hogue has produced a suit
able set of regulations for the guidance
of players. Some of them are, in effect,
as follows:
If you are hboted by the public, smile.
If you are called a lobster,- smile, and
if so inclined, bow in acknowledgment of
the compliment.
If called a lubber, a piker, a quitter, a
dub or any other of the choice names that
fly thick and fast at every well regulated
ball game smile.
If thev public tries to lynch you or to
use tar and feathers, place your hands
to your mouth to serve as a sort of meg
aphone, take a deep breath and shout for
the police. They will do their best to
protect you. ,
But 'don't try to take the law Into your
own hands unless you have got more
money than ybu know what to do with.
Judge Hogue took the initiative in mak
ing up these rules as the result of the
ill-timed attacks, made by Catcher Heine
Spies, of the Los Angeles team, upon Or
ton, a bystander, at last Saturday's game.
Spies, being In San Francisco, was rep
resented by Attorney Wolfe in the Po
lice Court. .The charge was assault and
battery, of which he was promptly found
guilty and fined $23. Judge Hogue, In pass
ing sentence, said a ballplayer must Viot
lose his head because he Is hooted at.
as it Is the public's prerogative to hoot If
deemed necessary. Only in event profan
ity were used or he was assaulted would
the player have the right to protest, and
then only through the medium of tho
Police Department, the same as other In
dividuals, so His Honor held.

Plea for McLoughlln's House.
OREGON CITr. Or.. Nov. 2. (To the Edi
tor.) I wish to enter a protest In your paper
against the mutilation of the McLouchlln
residence in Oregon City, at thlsjtlrne. when
thousands of people will come from the East
to Portland to visit the Lewis and Clark
Fair., ana will be Interested In visiting the
old residence of the founder of Vancouver
and Oregon City. The lumber for the house
was all dressed by hand, and the door? and
windows were ateo made by hand, and the
lumber sawed by an old upright sash saw.
The house Is too valuable a relic to be al
lowed to be destroyed, and Oregon City
should be ashamed sot to be more consid
erate of the memory of the founder of the
city, and I hope that at this late day Its
citizens will bestir themselves and save . the
house which sheltered the big-hearted Mc
Lpughlln and his family so many years.

his removal to the hospital now.
The north side of the reservoir, which
is 30 feet high, tumbled over, falling
upon the home and barn of Martin

The reservoir was built in 1881 by 50
citizens. Ten years ago it and the en
tire water plant were sold to the city.
Soon thereafter ten feet was added to
the height of the reservoir.
The city had just had a large stand
pipe completed. It is full of water
and the town is prepared to supply
every demand. The thousands f gal
lons of water that flowed from the
reservoir formed a pond in the vlcinty,
and it was thought that several people
might have been drowned in this. Tho

blocks from the center of the business
district of the city and was surrounded
by a number of residences andT small

were killed and three seriously injured
by an acclde'nt at No. 1 Auchlnclose
shaft at Nantlcokeearly today. The men
were mostly all upon the mine car
riage to be lowered to workings below.

Urges New Trial for Walton.
The motion for a new .trial In tho
Charles W. Walton cases because ho
was not required to enter a plea of not
guilty were argued before Judge Cle
land yesterday and taken under advise
ment. Henry St. Rayner, counsel for Walton,
contended that a plea of not guilty is
imperatively essential to an issue, and
without such a plea there is not an
issue for trial by a jury; that a trial
without a plea being made and entered
raises no issue, and is a nullity. Mr.
St. Rayner argued that his contention
is supported by text-writers Wharton,
Bishop, Roscoe. Blackstone and Cope.
He also submitted authorities upon the
District Attorney Manning and. his
assistant. Mr. Moser, argued that a plea
of not guilty- is Immaterial, and that
authorities show that where a person
does not object to going to trial where
r. plea has not been made, he waives his

.the occasion of a visit to the reading-room
last evening by Right Reverend B. WIetar

took offence at the superintendent of the

tioned rose In a body and threw at him
everything In sight, checkers, magazines
and books. The superintendent was com
pletely submerged.
When Bishop Morris camo into the
room last night, and. taking off his shawl,
spoke kindly to the boys, asking 'them
what was wrong and what he could do
for them, they hadn't a word to say. His

with such sweetness that they came to
him In droves and explained:
"We want boxing gloves."

directly connected with it3 general phil
anthropic work. The proposition of Mrs.
Mary Osborn Douthlt that the council

withheld. Mrs. W. J. Honeymair "sub
mitted the prospectus of the proposed do
mestic guild which the Y. W. C. A. has
under consideration; it was well received
and the members of the council will un
doubtedly become active patrons. Mrs.

work of the Women's Exchange and asked
for new members. The council was asked
to attend "the tea to be given by the ex

dent of the council, w'ho Is attending the
conference of presidents of the National
Council at St. Louis, and under the head
of "Gathered by the Way" told much of

women hi other sections of the country.
A feature of all meetings this year will
be "Current Events." which was well
handled by Mrs. E. May yesterday.. She
referred to the gallant work being done
by the Jewish doctors and surgeons at
the scat of war, and to the bravery of the

Danville man went through an experience
showing how true this is.
"For 30 years I had been troubled with
my stomach so bad at times It made, me
desperately sick. I had to take pills and
medicine all the time, which made my
stomach very weak, and headaches and
other miseries made life almost unendur
able. Three years ago I had an attack
of pain over my heart so bad my wife
kept hot poultices there" for two nights.
Took a lot more medicine and finally got
so bad I could eat nothing, at least I
k could eat It but would throw it up again
in a few minutes. I tried several doctors
but got worse all the time and hadto
be taken home from the store at different
times. I was so sick and dizzy I could
not walk a step.
"I tell you I know what It is to have a
weak stomach, and the strong medicines
simply made matters worse.
"I kept on getting weak and poor all
the time, living much of the time on a
little toast and warm milk until I wasted
away so that all- the- clerks in my store
expected me to die. I tried everything

until two years ago when I decided to
give Grape-Nuts ten days' trial.
"So I started with two teaspoonfuls of
Grape-Nuts and cream three times a day,
increasing to three teaspoonfuls. then to
four, and from the very first day I com

the time, as well as strength. From that
time it was nothing.but progress with me
for all the old troubles disappeared; I got
