NEW YORK, Jan. 2. The New York

morning, declares that General Stoessel
has surrendered Port Arthur to the Jap

JAPANESE ARMY, Jan. 1. via Fusan.
The Russians are preparing to evacuate
their entire position east of Port Arthur.
TOKIO. Jan. 2 (1 P. M.) It is un
derstood that hostilities at Port Ar
thur wore stopped today and that the
Russian and Japanese chiefs of staffs
met at noon at Shushlylng to discuss
terms of surrender.
TOKIO. Jan. 2. 10 A. M. The following
cable has been received from Nogi:
"I received a letter relating to surrender
from General Stoessel, the commander of
the Port Arthur garrison, Sunday night
at 9 o'clock."
The news that the Russian forces at
Port Arthur have been reduced to such
a strait that at last the heroic com
mander has "been forced to propose sur
render follows upon a month of reverses.
The siege began almost with the firing of
the first gun In the war, now nearly 11
months ago, and when perhaps the great
est stronghold in the world was garri
soned by 40,000 Russian soldiers, supported
by a formidable squadron of modern bat
tleships, cruisers and torpedoboats. These
warships have been destroyed or 'disposed
of until but a few torpedoboats remain in
tho harbor. The garrison, at latest ac
counts, had been reduced to about 15,000
December 4 High (203-Meter) Hill, one
of the most commanding positions In
the series of forts held by the Russians,
was captured by the Japanese, after a
severe fight, in which the loss on both
sides was enormous. It was from this
hill that the deathblows were dealt the
warships that were then remaining In
the harbor, and afterward the Japanese
guns were trained upon the town and
such forts as wore within range.
December 19 the East Kekwan fort was
taken by the Japanese, affording them
another advantageous position from which
to assail other forts in the chain of de

sition, as they were .also in the fall of
the Rlhlung fort, December 29. All these
achievements served to cut communica

to be the "last ditch" of the defenders,
from a great part of the chain of forts.

CAPTURE OF H FORT.
Victorious Besiegers at Same Time
Take Heights of Panlung.
TOKIO, Jan. 1 (6:30 P. 31.) Following,
the dramatic assault upon and capture of
Sungshu Mountain, the Japanese at Port
Arthur today captured H fort and the re
cently constructed fort on Panlung
Mountain, obtaining possession of the en
tire line between Rlhlung Mountain and
H fort via Panlung Mountain. Simul
taneously with the capture of the forta
the extreme right pressing along Pigeon
Bay, captured the heights south of Hou
sanyantao. Telegraphing today tho head
quarters of the besieging forces says: .
"A part of the center, dislodging the
enemy, occupied H fort at 7 o'clock this
morning and also captured the new fort
on Panlung Mountain.
"Thus the line between Rlhlung Moun
tain and H fort 1'ia Panlung Mountain fell
firmly into our hands.
"Part of our right, which commenced
a bombardment at S o'clock this morning
and dislodged the enemy, who resisted
stubbornly, firmly occupied a height south
of Housanyantao at 2 o'clock."
News of the continuance of the Japan
ese successes at Port Arthur Is received
with elation In Toklo. It is known that
the Japanese losses were comparatively
light. It is believed here that the Russian
garrison Is finally reaching its limits of
strength, endurance and numbers.

mined and exploded at 10 A. M., many
Russians being killed and buried in the
debris. Those who remained in the fort
were captured. There was little opposi

of the fort was destroyed,, affording cover
for the assaulters.
The Japanese now hold forts guarding

TOKIO. Jan. 2. 11:35 A. M. Toklo Is
wildly joyous over General Nogi's tele

had sent a letter relating to the surren

extras were the messengers who carried
the news to the holiday crowds in the
streets. The people grabbed the papers
and repeated the cries.
Thus was the news carried throughout
the city and within a few minutes the
firing of aerial bombs and daylight rock

WAITING FOR THE END.
Cheery Novakral at Port Arthur Has
Given Up All Hope.
CHEFOO, Jan. 1 (9 P. M.) Copies of
the Port Arthur Novakral, dated Decern
ber 24 and December 25. which have
reached here, contain pathetic references
to the last stand of the last snip of Rus
sia's Asiatic squadron. Even General
Stoessel. who has been silent in respect
to the navy since August 10. issued an or
der lauding the battleship Sevastopol and
Captain Essen, who, for seven hours.
withstood the attacks of torepdo-boats
till, at last, the death rattle sounded
through the gaping wounds in the Se
vastopol's sides and Russia's Asiatic fleet
was no more.

betrays tidings of pathetic hopelessness of
even the most heroic resistance.
Discussing the battle of 203-Meter Hill
the Novakral says:
"The hill received on its breast the
hammering of SOOpound shells, which
split over the rocks and went through
lS-Inch steel as through paper.

"What Port Arthur goes through? It
Is possible to describe, but Russia will
know what her .sons have suffered.
"It is past human ingenuity to paint
or describe Port Arthur's sufferings as
they really are.
The fighting at 203-Meter Hill, according
to the Novakral. lasted 16 days, until
December 6, when "death, which had had
no rest for 16 days, ceased her work."
The only other mention of the Russian
fleet Is an expression from the Novrakral
of the condition of helplessness that ev
eryone saw as the ships succumbed to the
fire of the Japanese shells.
Yaegermeister Balashoff had, according
to the Novrakral, held a conference with
the Japanese In reference to tho protec
tion of the hospitals from the Japanese
shells. The conference resulted in the
making of the Red Cross flags larger and
also the painting of the same on the sides
of the hospitals.

Was Behind Proposed Ad

OREGONIAN NEWS BUREAU, Wash
ington, -Jan. L Senator Fulton, after
reading the Associated Press story of the
Indictment of Senator Mitchell and Rep
resentative Hermann, made the following
"The account purports to be, and I as
sume Is, a fairly complete summary of the
Government's evidence. I confess 1 am
astonished that the grand jury should
have returned an Indictment on such evi
dence. Apparently all the evidence against
Senator Mitchell are his own admissions
and the uncorroborated testimony of the
convicted Puter. Mitchell admits that Pu-
ter came to Washington with a letter of
Introduction from Mays; that he accom
panied him to the Land Office and urged
that the Issuing of patents to the land
claims should be expedited.
Hermann, It appears, declined to make
such an order In the absence of a show
ing by affidavit of facts that would Jus
tify it, whereupon Puter told Mitchell a
tale of woe, and Mitchell dictated an af
fidavit embodying the alleged facts for
him and his accomplice, Watson, to sign.
They signed and filed It, and the claims
were passed to patent.

"Of course. In view of the fact that all
the detailed circumstances attending the
transaction save the receipt of the money
are substantially admitted to have oc
curred. It was easy for a swift and willing
perjurer such as Puter to Inject the one
element necessary to convert an other
wise Innocent transaction, so far as
Mitchell is concerned. Intc a crime. He
did so by swearing he paid to Mitchell
the money, and In consequence a man
who has served his state in the Senate
for almost a quarter of a century with
out his name having been connected or
associated with any charge or whisper of
a charge of corruption. Is now, at the
age of 70 years, compelled to go into
court and defend his character.

such evidence, but even acquittal will not

Instance, as false as foul.

that the conspiracy, so far as Mitchell

shown that in truth Mitchell knew him
well, that he had long been an active

strange that he should have approached
him to enter Into the conspiracy with a
letter of introduction.
"It was stated by high officials in
Washington that both Mitchell and Her.

CLEVELAND. Jan. 1. Unheralded and
unembarrassed by a crowd of the curi
ous, the home-coming of Dr. Leroy S.-
Chadwick was in diametric contrast to
the arrival of his wife three weeks ago.
The hour of the day and the fact that
but few people were about made the
doctor's arrival like that of an ordinary
traveler." No one was at the station to
meet him, with the exception of Attor
ney Kerruish. Even his step-son. Emll,
failed to see h'm until 9 o'clock. Young
Hoover had planned to board the train
at an outlying station, but the train had

Sheriff Barry. In whose company Dr.
Chadwick was on the trip from New-
York, chose to come to Cleveland over the
Pennsylvania road. The train arrived at
Cleveland at 7:30 this morning. Scarcely
any of the few at the station knew of the
party's arrival, and the Sheriff and Dr.
Chadwick were driven to the County
A bond provided Saturday evening by
Attorney Kline and Attorney Dawley was

Falls Into Husband's Arms.
Ater the preliminaries in the Sheriff's
office, Dr. Chadwick was escorted by
Sheriff Barry to the fourth floor of tho
woman's ward, where his wife Is held a
prisoner. The meeting between the two.
was pathetic In the extreme. Mrs. Chad
wick arose when she heard the steps' In
the corridor and fell Into her husband's
arms when she recognized him. Both-
broke down and wept convulsively for
several minutes while clinging to each
other, the Sheriff attempting meanwhile
to console them.
There was no artificiality about the
scene. Genuine grief, with no Joy Inter
mingled. The Sheriff was deeply af
fected. Little by little, the first shock
grew less severe, and the two sat down
for a talk that continued for an hour and
a half. There were pleadings and partial
responses when the more serious predica
ment of husband and wife were at length
Dr. Chadwick had lost his all In the
operations of his wife and the large In
dependent fortune of his only child has
been swept away. Sufficient reason, It
would seem, for some show of hardness
on his part. Mrs. Chadwick tried to im
bue him with the thought of her Inno
cence of any wrongdoing. His only re
sponse to, these pleas were "I hope so."
Woman Pleads for Trust.
.The troubles Into which both have been
plunged were thoroughly discussed. The
wife told the story. Interspersed by vio
lent fits of weeping. In which at times
Dr. Chadwick joined. There were no ap
parent evasions, but there was a con
stant cry of. vrust me, trust me," on
the part of the woman.
"Don't believe these stories which tho
.newspapers have been printing about
me," she said. "They are all lies; every
one of them. I have done nothing wrong.
Believe me. trust me. everything will
come out all right in the end and It will
be seen that I have been guilty of none
of these things the public charge me
with. Don't think I deceive you; I will
tell you tho truth, and I will tell you that
all these reports are lies lies."
"I can only hope so." was the hus
band's answer. "I have trusted you and
It Is hard to believe anything; my mind Is
so confused. This has been such a ter
rible shock and I don't understand any
of It. I want time to think of it. I do
not say I won't trust you; only give me
time to collect my thoughts. Ever since
I heard of this trouble In Parte I have
been bothered and my life has been made
almost -unbearable. I have been fol
lowed and hounded until I can think of
nothing else. I am not the judge. I can
only hope that everything will come out
all right, as you say."
Conference With Attorneys.
After an hour's earnest conversation.
conducted for the most part In a whisper.
Sheriff Barry was asked by Mrs. Chad
wick to send for her attorney, J. P.
Dawley. who was walling with Attorney
Kerruish In the jail office. Mr. Dawley
went to Mrs. Cbadwick's cell and held a
conference with her and Dr. Chadwick,
the result of which was said to be the
. instructing of the two prisoners by Mr.
Dawley of their future public action.
During the time of Mr. Dawleys pres
ence with tbem, both Mr. and Mrs Chad
wick gave way to their feelings and Mrs.
Chadwick wept aloud. Mr. Dawley was
with them for an hour. When he and
Dr. Chadwick arose to leave the jail Mrs.
Chadwick apparently felt more severely
than ever before the desolation of her
position. She knew neither that her hus
band was her champion andprotector nor
that his -sympathy for her had been
swept away- She clung to him for a
moment and again pleaded with him
for his "confidence. With, tears in his
eyes he told her she had bis confidence
until proof la produced to shatter it.
i The doctor was dazed for a moment
upon reaching tho turnkey's room. Emll
Hoover had arrived at the jail, while Dr.
Chadwick was with his wife, and was
awaiting his step-father In the office.
The father grabbed both hands of the
boy and searched his face a moment be
"Emll." slowly said the doctor. "It has
been a long time since I saw you. Many
thlngs have happened since then."
The boy made no response to his step
father, and they started to leave the

wick became somewhat reserved as his
train- neared his home city. Apparently
he grew sadder and he was loath to dis
cuss his troubles.
"It Is a little different home-coming
than 1 have been accustomed to," he.
said, with a wan smile. "Sheriff Barry
has been most kind and has made the
trip as pleasant as possible under the
circumstances. My daughter remained
in New York and will start at once for
Florida. All this trouble has come upon
me with such suddenness that I am al
most crushed. Of course, I am not
guilty of any wrongdoing.
Asks for Opinion. of Public.
'How do the peqple of Cleveland look
upon me?" the doctor anxiously Inquired.
"For 35 years I have made that city my
home and this Is the first time there has
been the faintest taint on my name. It
Is all too awful to contemplate. Even
my home has been taken from me, and
If all reports are true I am a pauper.
I cannot suspect my wife, for I must
first learn her story from her own lips
before I can Judge her. Heaven grant
that It all may be cleared up at once."
After .this statement Dr. Chadwick
was silent until his train reached the
Euclid-avenue station of the Pennsyl
vania line, where he was greeted by At
torney Kerruish. The two men nave
been friends for 15 years.
After leaving the Jail Dr. Chadwick,
with Attorney Kerruish, had breakfast
in a down-town restaurant.
There has been some question In the
minds of the lawyers as to whether Dr.
Chadwick would have the occupancy ot
his Euclul-avenue home, since It has
been taken Dossesslon of for the benefit
of creditors of Mrs. Chadwick. but it nas
been decided by the lawyers that Dr.
Chadwick cannot be barred from its use.
He spent the day at the home of Attorney

DREDGING OF THE WILLAMETTE
No Provision Can Be Made in the
River and Harbor Bill.
OREGONIAN NEWS BUREAU, Wash
lngton, Jan. 1. Chairman Burton, of the
river and harbor committee. In a letter
received by Representative Williamson
today, states that no provision can be
made In the forthcoming river and har
bor bill for the Improvement of tho
Willamette River above the Madison-
street bridge. Many dockowners and
firms shipping by water from points
above the bridge have been seeking to
have the "Lower Willamette project modi
fied so as to extend the 25-foot channel
to a point one mile above the bridge.
Among those .Interested are Inman, Poul
sen & Co., the Portland Lumber Com
pany, and T. B. Wilcox, of the Commer
cial Club. In his letter Chairman Burton
"It Is not our Intention In this bill to
make provision for dredging or Improv
ing channels' ot this kind. In our opin
ion, this work should be done by mu
nlclpalltles or by private Individuals. I
see nothing we can do except Insert a
provision In the bill giving the control
of the locality where the city mains
cross the river to the War Department
and directing the department to take
stefs to cause the mains to be -lowered
so as to permit dredging by the city or
by private individuals in the interest oi
"It Is not with special reference to
Portland that we are making this rule,
but a3 a general principle. There are
probably 40" or 50 cases which are similar.
and we are desirous of enforcing a gen
"If Chairman Burton's Idea is carried
out, the City of Portland will be com
pelled to lower Its water mains to & suf

REPUBLICANS IN 'CONTROL
Minority Report to Legislature
Will Be Adopted.
GREAT FRAUDS TO BE SHOWN
Alva Adams, the Democrat Elected on
the Face of the Returns, Will
Have to Bring Contest if He
Desires the Seat.
DENVER, Jan. 1. Announcement was
made today from Republican caucuses
that when the General Assembly con
venes In joint session to canvass the vote
for state officers, as required by the
constitution, two sets of returns will be
presented from the Denver election com
mission. The majority report will show
a plurality of about 4000 for Alva Adams,
the Democratic candidate for Governor:
the minority will set forth extensive
election frauds and declare that Gov
ernor Peabody carried this county by a
plurality sufficient to overcome Adaraf
plurality o about 6000 in the remainder
of the state.
No particulars concerning this minority
report have yet been made public How
ever, it is confidently asserted by tho
Republican leaders that the minority re
port from Denver will he supported by
the full Republican vote In the Legisla
ture, that the certificate of election will
be .awarded to Governor Peabody. and
that he will be Inaugurated as Governor
for a second term on January 10, tho
date set by the constitution. This line
of action, according to the view ot the
Republicans, will make it necessary
Adams to bring a contest If he should
still care to assert any claim to the Gov
ernorship. Another announcement by the Utepub
1 leans today Is that the Senate, when
called to order next Wednesday, will
consist of 21 Republicans and 13 Demo
crats, with one vacancy. It had been,
generally supposed since the completion
of the canvass that there would be at
the outset nine Republicans and 15
Democratic Senators. The change wilt
be effected. It Is said, by dropping Sen
ators Daniel Healy, of Leadville, and R.
M. Born, of Alamosa, from the persons
entitled to seats, which Is prepared by tho
Secretary of State. These two Senators
were elected by a Democratic majority
during the contest over the election ot
United States Senator two years ago.
Senators Jesse F. McDonald and Jame3
B. Dick, who were -unseated, still hold
their credentials of election, and It Is
said Lieutenant-Governor Haggott, Pres
ident of the Senate, will recognize them
as members, the claim being made that
there is no legal record to show that
Healy and Born were seated, as the act
was never legalized by the President of
the Senate. When the house convenes
there will be 47 Republicans and IS Demo
cratic Representatives. Therefore, if
McDonald and Dick shall hold the Sen
atorial seats occupied by Healy and Born
at the session of 1902, the vote on joint
ballot will be: Republicans, 6S; Demo
United States Senator Thomas M. Pat
terson, in an address to the people ot
the state, has reiterated bis declaration,
made on several previous occasions, that
he will not seek or accept a re-election,
and has declared that his purpose in re
maining away from Washington at this
time is to fight what he terms a con
spiracy to overthrow the government in
