LONDON, Nov.. 30. According to a
Toklo dispatch, to the Standard, there is
mi -official -iairaor that ihe Japanese have
hauled .large caliber guns to the top of
203-Metef -Hill, -whence their Are has a
gweep of the -whole liarbor. This report
doubtless goes "beyond the facts; but
-various dispatches indicate the progress
the Japanese are making in the reduction
of Port Arthur. Japanese here explain
the great importance of the capture of
203-Meter Hill, which, besides giving com
mand of the harbor, will serve as a wide
breach made by the wedge the Japanese
had previously driven In between the Etz
group and the Russians' last retreat In
the ravines of Laotle Mountain. They
declare that retreat to Laotle will be
effectually cut off, and It is not unlikely
that Laotle will be simultaneously at
tacked in the final assault.
Bennett Burleigh wires to the Dally
Telegraph from Chefoo that in the last
assault the Japanese lost 400 men in one
hour's fighting. They claim to have cap
tured two more of the nortneastern fort3
and a third, which is part of the "West
Kekwan fort. They assert, Mr. Burleigh
adds, to have effected a lodgment at
Pigeon Bay, thus turning the fort on
203-Mete.r.Hlll, and that they are now tun
neling from the gorge below Laotle Hill,
which they hope first to damage and then
rush. The dispatch continues:
"Desperate lighting Is proceeding dally,
and the losses are admitted to be ex
cessive, but the Japanese insist that
Port Arthur must fall within 21 days."

ST. PETERSBURG. Nov. 30, 3:28 A. M.
Foreign reports o the fighting at Port
Arthur are accepted here very seriously.
If the Japanese have taken 203-Meter
!Hill, as reported, commanding the whole
Siarbor, It is believed that the situation is
critical. Experts on Port Arthur topo
graphy assert however, that it is more
likely that the Japanese have occupied
some positions at the base of the bill, and
believe that owing to the concentrated fire
of the covered forts the Japanese will find
the top of the hill untenable if they ar

LIBERALS TOO BOLD
Leading Editor Says Russian
Reforms Will Be Delayed,
AUTOCRACY MUST PREVAIL
Foremost Spokesman of the Policy
Goes On to Say People Have No
Conception of the Meaning of
ST. PETERSBURG. Nov. 29. Prince
Meschersky, editor of the Crasbdanln,
and the foremost spokesman of the
autocracy, holds that the Inauguration
of such reforms as are at present pos-
slDle In Russia has been actually preju
diced by "the. irresponsible agitation
for a constitution which is now in
progress." Autocracy he considers vital
to the life and future greatness of
Russia as a nation. Liberal reforms, he
maintains, are necessary, but they can
not be introduced except by the. au
tocracy. Moreover, declares the Prince, a
broad plan of reform was already
mapped out for gradual Introduction
-when the whole work was thrownHbto
confusion by the Liberal reboundamc-
companied by the discussion of a in
stitution, which followed Minister von
Flehve's death. Speaking to the Asso

"The question is often asked, why not
introduce a constitution? Russia might
as well ask an American or a Briton
why not introduce autocracy? A con
stitution Is just as necessary to Great
Britain or the" United States as au
tocracy Is for Russia. Russia without
autocracy would cease to be Russian.

Russians who want a constitution, and
as they do all the talking, while the
remaining 150,000,000 are voiceless, the
impression goes abroad that the sen
timent of the majority of the nation
desires a change in the form of gov
ernment Would Be Shortlived.
"If a constitution were Introduced to
morrow, it would be shortlived for the
simple reason that it would not be
based upon the ideas or wishes of the
people, and therefore it would only

I contend that reform is attainable only

Unfortunately where there is smoke,
dirt and dust and little sunlight there
also can be found the germs of dis
ease. Nature's great disinfectant is
sunlight Sunlight and fresh air pro
mote the growth of animals and plants
but kill the germs of disease. Air,
free from dust, such as we have on
the sea, never permits the germs of
disease to have any chance for growth
and development. It is in the fac
tory, the work-shop, the office, that
men and women suffer from diseases
which are in the dust and the bad
air. Such disease germs enter into,
the blood in two ways, either through
the lungs or stomach. If the blood
is pure and rich, the liver and stom
ach in healthy active condition, the
germs of disease cannot find a resting
place there to multiply. Disease of
the lungs, bronchitis, and consump
tion, are very apt to spread through
a factory where there is much fine
dust in the air. The lungs become
irritated and the germs, find a fertile
field for growth. Extreme weakness,
feelings of aervous exhaustion, coughs
and colds are the warning signals
which should be heeded. One should
put the system in the very best possi
ble condition right away.
After years or experience in an zc-t

remedy that suited these conditions
in a blood-maker and tissue-builder,
which at the same time alleviates the

the blood is pure and rich, all the
organs work without effort, and the
body is like a perfect machine; if,
however, any part is allowed to rust,
and this human machine does not
get its full supply of rich red blood
(which acts like oil on machinery),
then new fields are created in which
the bacteria or germs of disease thrive
and multiply. The germs of grip,
malaria, catarrh or consumption find
a fertile field if the body is not kept in
perfect order and the blood pure. No

Mr. Roy A. Reed, of Casper, Wyoming,
writes : "For eight years I had catarrh
of the throat in the very worst form ;
could hardly speak above a whisper for
two years. Tried nearly a dozen patent
medicines withoutTrclief: " I was'sodis-'
couraged that I just about decided ca
tarrh could not be cured with any medi
cine. My father, however, advised me"
to try Dr. Pierce's medicines before giv
ing up. I followed his advice and com
menced using the medicine on the twen- '
tieth of December. I was surprised to
note-the result of the first month's treat
ment After using six bottles of Dr.
rierce's Golden Medical Discovery, I
was perfectly cured. It has been months
since I took the last medicine, and I
have not had the least return of my
trouble. I have felt better during the."
past two months than for seven winters
previous to this time."
Mrs. Lydia James, of Ogdensburg,
Wis., writes : "In regard to your medi
cine will say that the 'Golden Medical
Discovery' is a God-send to suffering
women. I was sick in bed with liver
complaint and kidney disease arid fever
when I began to take Dr. Pierce's Gold--en
Medical Discovery. In ten davs'
time I was so I could begin to get around
the house, and gained right along. After
that, took about five bottles of it and am
sure. I would have been in my grave by
this time had it not been for this1 rem
edy.. I would advise all suffering women
to use Dr. Pierce's medicines."
C P.- Spencer, of Piano, Ofcla., wrote :
"I can hardly express ray thanks for the
benefit I have received from taking' Dr.
Pierce's Golden Medical Discovery and
Pleasant Pellets.' They worked like a
charm in my case. Am m better health
now than for some time, and will not fail
to recommend your medicines to my
suffering friends. I hope you will re
ceive my thanks for the good your med-
icine has done me."
