Wednesday night, the Russian army has
abandoned the last stronghold in. South

that section to the Japanese for the cam

view of his scanty supply of ammunition

army and the -wide enveloping movements

without a 3top since the Russian defeat

The Japanese evidently are doing their
utmost to accomplish the envelopment of
the Russian army, which all but succeed
ed at Mukden, but General Kuropatkln,
with the railway for a line of retreat,
probably will bo able td keep ahead, of
his nursuers. A constant succession of
delaying rearguard encounters may be ex
pected. Military men here have but the haziest
Ideas as to where the next stand will be
made. Apparently there are no more
fortified positions In readiness, and the
retirement probably will not stop short of
Klrln or ICaunchentzy, on the railway
line, and. if the Japanese press the pur
suit, the Russians may retire beyond and
up the Sungari River, there to await new
levies, the mobilization of which will be
gin immediately In Russia.
The evacuation of Tic Pass involves the
loss of the coal mines in that vicinity,
which, with the "Fushun and Yentai mines
gone, 1st a severe blow. The railway shops
at Tie Pass and moro supplies were sac
rificed. A further mobilisation has been deter
mined upon, and preparatory orders to
quartermasters, otc.. are already being is
sued, but the extent of the mobilization
is not known.
Ko change in tlie command of the army
in the Far East has yet been gazetted. One
high military official told the Associated
Press yesterday that to relieve General
Kuropatkln at this moment would be
"much like trading horses in the middle
of the stream." and that it would be bet
ter to give Kuropatkln a chance to get
what is lort of his army out of the claws
of the Japanese before committing it to
a new commander, who would need a little
time to get a grasp on the situation.
RUSSIAN LINE OF RETREAT.
Nature of Country Between Tie Pass
General Kuropatkln and the remnant
of the army wliich was defeated by the
Japanese on the Shakhe and Hun Rivers,
and again around Mukden and Tie Pass,
are now in the mountains a few miles
north of the southern entrance of the
pass, trying to shake off their pursuers,
who apparently are not going to repeat
the mistake of Llao Tang and allow the
Russian army to escape.
Kuropatkln has been reinforced by the
garrisons of Tiding and other northern
towns and a few new troops, who were
on their way from Russia, when the bat
tle of Mukden began. But. even with
these, there is little nope for him. True,
he has some SO or 40 miles of hilly coun
try extending from Tie Pass to Feng
hautslen, which might enable him to hold
off the enemy for a time, but, once out of
the hills; ho has beforo him nearly 300
miles of flat, open country and innumer
able rivers and streams to cross.
This is what is termed the great Val
ley of the Sungari," but It Is in fact an
immense plain, bounded on the cast by
high mountains and extending northward
Into Siberia and westward into Mongolia.
KIrin. east of the railway, and Harbin,
the most northerly point on the railway,,
where it branches off to Vladivostok east
ward, and to Siberia westward, are the
centers of a wonderfully rich country,
resembling the Northwest Territories of
From Tie Pass the railway runs over
hills known as "the divide" to Kalyan.
20 miles, then striking into a . valley on
cither side of which rise high hills,
emerges into the plain just northeast of
the Chinese City of Fenghautslen. From
there to Harbin hardly a hill can be seen

from the railway train, the line running
almost-straight, except where an occa
sional curve Is necessary to reach a city
or favbrable crossing of a river.
Beside the railway there is a splendid
wagon road from Tie Pass to Kalyan,
where t branchcs. one branch making a
detour to the westward, skirting the
mountains and running almost direct. to
Harbin, the other branch passing through
the mountains to Kirjn, from which cen
ter there are many roads.
The distance from Tie Pass to Harbin
is very little less than 30 miles, and ex
cept for the first few miles every acre is
under cultivation or supporting herds of
cattle, sheep and horses. So far as the
commissariat Is concerned, the Russians
need have no fear. Hardly a popnd of
last year's crop of beans, millet or wheat
left the country, the Russians buying it
all and storing it In stations along the
railway, Immense shelters being erected
for Its reception. The weather on the
plain is very much colder than la the
Mukden section of Manchuria. As a rule,
the ground does not commence to thaw
until April, except a very little on the
surface In the middle of the day, the-sun
being strong even in Winter.

there is not a defensible position, unless
he abandons the railway and seeks safe

year, of course, the rivers would afford
some protection, but In Winter, being
frozen, they are as easily crossed as s
the country. West of Harbin, along the
railway, the first hills are encountered,
about midway between Harbin and the
Siberian border. These mountains are
most formidable, several switchbacks and
tunnels being necessary to carry the rail
way over them.

NEW YORK. March 16. (.Special.)
"Tammany Hall is making a house-to-house
campaign for the purpose of coun
teracting the effect of President Roo-ie-velt's
recent visit to the East Side."
This astonishing statement was made
by Julius Harburger. leader of the Tenth
Assembly District, and one of the best
posted politicians in the city, when it
comes to gauging the sentiments of what
are familiarly known as the "common
"We are seeing the voters In their
homes," he continued, "and while we
are not denying that Roosevelt Is all
right, yet we point out that the Republi
can party is the party of Wall street and
The real fact of the matter is that
Tammany Hall does not dare to attack
the President. Hl3 popularity In the
great East Side section of the filty is
unbounded, and even his political foes
admit that he is a man to be proud of.
To understand the peculiarity of the
situation, it must be explained that old
New York City Is divided Into three sec
tions, the East Side, which takes in all
the territory from Third avenue to the
East River; the West Side, from Seventh
avenue to the North River, and the cen
tral portion, . which comprises .the .fash
ion able hotels and the dwellings 'of the
In the central portion are found all
the -majorities that the- republicans "can
scrape up ordinarily, the West Side is
strongly Democratic, but liable to change
In times of landslides, while the East
Side Is reliably Democratic even in times
of political upheavals.
When Strong was elected in 1S94, and
Low in 1901, the East Side remained
loyal to Tammany, the big Republican
gains coming from the West Side and the
silk stocking districts.
Democratic Till Roosevelt Came.
On the East Side, under the present ap
portionment, there are 17 Assembly dis
tricts. In 1896, when McKlnley carried
the city, two Assemblymen out of these
1Z districts were Republicans, one by a
majority of a single vote. The other man
had demonstrated his popularity by being
previously chosen, although his district
was carried by every other candidate on
the Democratic ticket. This particular
man, Charles Adler, carried the Eighth
District three years in succession. When
he dropped out the district lapsed into
Democracy again. The proud victor by
one vote was not re-elected. These are
the only two Republicans who have sat
in the Legislature at Albany as repre
sentatives of the East Side as far back
as the oldest politician In town can re
member. Last year Roosevelt made his greatest
gains on the East Side, and ran so well
that he carried three Republican Assem
blymen Into office with him. It shocked
Tammany even more than the defeat of
AH Swear by Him Now.
Since the President's recent visit to
"UtUe Hungary" you do not hear any
thing down there but Roosevelt. It Is
the nightly topic of conversation In the
saloons and little cafes.
"The President! He wasn't too proud
to visit us and cat with us. He is the
The Hungarian Republican Club was
the host of the first President who ever
visited the East Side. Since that Import
ant occasion its membership has more
than doubled. Max Schwartz, proprietor
of "Little Hungary," where the banquet
was held, said the other day that there
was not a Hungarian Democrat in town.
"Wo will be Republicans just as long
as the President is," he says.
Representative William Sulzer, whose
district takes in a good part of the East
Side, mans. sed to retain much of his pop
ularity by attending the banquet and pub
licly praising the President. He confided
to a friend the other day that
"I really do like Roosevelt and admire
him Immensely, but, if he ever wanted
to make a. personal campaign agalnstme
for somebody else In this district, I'd
be beaten to death."
Wins Negroes and Irish Too.
The President has also won the colored
voters of the city by naming Charles
W. Anderson, a negro, as collector of
Internal revenue. This Is the first time
that a colored man has held an import
ant public position In New York City.
The President made It a personal ap
"We could stand everything," said Rep
resentative Tim Sullivan, the other day,
"but the President Is reaching out after
the Irish. "That Is entirely too much."
This objection on his part is because
of the fact that Roosevelt is to be the
guest of honor at the banquet of the
Friendly Sons of St. Patrick, at the Wal
dorf on St. Patrick's Day. He accepted
the invitation with enthusiasm and then
added to the good Impression he had
made, by requesting that the Sixty-ninth
Regiment be assigned as his escort.
The Sixty-ninth, it might be mentioned,
is an exclusively Irish organization. Of
course, as it Is part of the National
Guard, any citizen Is eligible for member
ship, and there is a tradition that a Ger
man once applied for admission, and his
friends have not heard of him since.
From Colonel Duffy down to the latest
recruit every member Is of Irish descent,
and they are wMldly happy over the com-

SECRET OF TREATY
Rival Syndicates for Control
of Santo Domingo.
SENATE DEBATES ALL. DAY
Failing Ratification, Agreement-May
Be Put In Effect byJoint:Res-
olution .at the Next.Ses-"
sion of Congress;
WASHINGTON. March 16. Senator
Morgan occupied practically the entire
time in the discussion of the Santo Do
mingo treaty in executive session of the
Senate today. He made a sensational
speech, in which he charged that William
Nelson Cromwell, of New York, who was
prominently connected with the sale of
the Panama Canal property to the United
States, was the prime mover In a scheme
to Interest the United States in the finan
cial affairs of the Dominican government
He asserted that Mr. Cromwell was act
uated by a desire to frustrate a plan of
a Mr. and Mrs. Reader, natives of Ala
bama, who are operating under the name
of the Reader Syndicate, to get certain
concessions from the Dominican govern
ment, and to promote the Interests of a
syndicate he represented, which, it is al
leged, holds a mass of claims against
Latin-American republics, including a
large part of the debts against the Domin
The alleged disclosures were debated all
day. and the Senate is divided as to wheth
er Morgan made a case. The Democrats
inslstttbat be did, while the leaders among
the Republicans declare that the charges
were made up of a mass of matter which
contained no -conclurfve evidence that Mr.
Cromwell bad used, any- undue Influence:
The speeches were made behind closed
doors. Morgan held his audience to the
conclusion of his remarks.
The tentative programme of the Senate
continues to be adjournment without data
on .Saturday without permitting the Do
minican treaty to come to a vote. It is
probable that it will be recommitted.
New Plan to Pass Treaty.
Among the Senate leaders today a new
plan was advanced in regard to Santo
'Domingo, but it deals with the next ses
sion of Congress. It has been suggested
that. If the whole matter is allowed to go
over, a joint resolution must be passed by
Congress to authorize the President to do
the very things that are proposed by the
treaty. If this course were pursued, a
majority vote is all that would be required
to place the entire matter in the hands of
the President. It is understood that the
plan found favor 'when it was suggested
at the White House by the Senators who
called there today. Some doubt was ex
pressed as to the constitutionality of deal
ing with this question except by treaty,
but the case of the annexation of Hawaii,
which was done by Joint resolution, was
used as a precedent, and Republican lead
ers believe it to be feasible.
Adjournment of thoj session cannot be
had until Saturday, because of the situa
tion In relation to nominations for the
Judgeship In Illinois, which cannot be de
termined before that time. Treaty dls
cusslon will go on for the two days the
SEATED AS GOVERNOR OF
session i3 expected to continue, and some
thing more may bo expected, from the
charges made by Morgan. It Is possible
that the question of a commission to In
quire into Santo Domingo's affairs, par
ticularly as to the character of her debts,
will come in a variety of forms, but the
adoption of any such plan Is not consid
Morgan's Story of Intrigue.
Morgan took the floor soon after the
Senate went Into executive session, and
at first gained slight attention until his
charges were developed. The Senator said
that he knew the Readers well and that
other Senators knew them. They were
the original concessionaires In Santo Do
mingo, and a treaty had been drawn up
between them and the Dominican govern
ment which the Readers were to present
to this Government for consideration. This
treaty, he said, was Interfered with by
Mr. Cromwell, who, the Readers charged,
Induced the Morales government to nul-'
llfy It under the proviso that the United
States would deal directly with Santo Do
mingo. Papers were read charging that Mr.
Cromwell's Interest began prior to the
DIlHngham-Sanches ' agreement, and it
-was 'alleged that he sent an agent to
President Morales and used the argument
that the United States was ready to
finance the Dominican government and
get It out of all its difficulties. . It was
charged that Mr. Cromwell represented a
number of claimants whose securities
would be advanced in value if the United
States took charge, and that his agent
represented to President Morales that Mr.
Cromwell was responsible for the forma
tion of the Government of Panama, and
the United States would do for Santo Do
mingo as much as or more than had been
done for Panama.
When t'Jls argument was made, accord
ing to the Readers, the Morales govern
ment threw over the alleged agreement
with them and started the negotiations
with the alleged agent of Mr. Cromwell.
It was then that Mr. Cromwell, It was
alleged, induced Santo Domingo to ask
the United States to administer the cus
toms affairs of the republic
Reader Treaty Brought to Light.
During the discussion Morgan repeat
edly referred to a treaty negotiated by
the Readers, which he said, "had never
seen the light of day," because of the in
terference of Mr. Cromwell. Piatt, of
Connecticut, said that he did not want
the discussion to go any further until
that treaty had been produced. There
upon it was sent to the Secretary's desk
by Morgan and read.
It is declared by Republican Senators
that the treaty gave everything to Santo
Domingo, concessions to the Readers and
practically nothing to the United States.
ThevSenators subsequently declared that
charges based on such a document were
not entitled to consideration.
Fo raker defended Mr. Cromwell, saying
that he knew- him professionally and be
lieved him. Incapable of the acts charged.
.At the 'same teno he said that the docu
ments presented, by Morgan should be
printed in order that all Senators might
Have' a 'chance to examine them.
Despite the fact that it Is recognized
that there are not enough votes for the
ratification of the treaty, there was a
general return today of Republican mem
bers, who have been absent. Lodge and
Kittredge, who have been away for a few
days, were In their seats and' Dolltver

Teller and Culfom at It Again.
After the reading of the journal. Teller
asked If there were obectlons to consid
ering his resolution of inquiry concern
ing Santo Dominican affairs. Cullom,
who had arisen to move an executive ses
sion, said that an opportunity would be
given tomorrow for the consideration of
"I know that," said Teller, "but If we
are called to vote on the treaty this week,
we will have to act without Information."
"Well, I do not believe the information
we would get Is worth much anyway,"
Teller said he did not want the resolu
tion to lose Its place and it was agreed
that he might call it up tomorrow.
The Newlands resolution was agreed to
calling on the President, If not incom
patible with the public Interests, to send
to the Senate certain Information relative
to Dominican affairs.

DENVER, March 16. James" H. Peabody
today won his contest lor the office of
Governor, from which he retired on Jan
uary 10 after serving a term of two years,
but his victory was achieved only after he
had given his pledge to resign and sur
render the chair to Lieutenant-Governor
Jesse F. McDonald.
The vote In Joint convention of the Gen
eral Assembly by which Governor Alva
Adanut was ousted and Governor James
H. Peabody Installed was 53 to 41. Ten
Republicans voted with the Democratic
members for Adams.
It was more in the nature of a party fc
than a personal triumph, for both Pea
body and McDonald are Republicans and
Adams Is a Democrat. Although the Re
publican majority on joint ballot is 35,
It had been found Impossible to gain for
Peabody enoush Republican votes to rein

of the biennial term ending in January.
1907. Twenty-two Republican members
refused to be bound by any action in cau
cus on the contest, and entered into a
compact not to vote for Peabody. A ma
jority of them, however, were in favor of
seating the Lieutenant-Governor in, .the
Governor's chair, if means could be
found to do so legally. Finally. the
leaders cl the opposing; "Republican fac
tions arranged a compromise by which

At the conference at which the bar
gain was made, pledges were given to
the independent Republicans by the
heads of four large corporations who
had been active supporters of Peabody
that he would retire after being seated
and permit the Lieutenant-Governor to
take. the office of Governor.
Peabody's resignation was placed in
the hands of W. S. Boynton, and will
be filed by him with- the Secretary of
Governor Adams, who had spent the
day packing his effects, surrendered his

In conversation he said he felt out

had no claim whatever to the place.

and resolutions restoring him "to the of

cheers. The oath of office was admin

the ceremony subsided, he thanked the
members of the Legislature for "hav

that their action would meetwith the
approbation of their constituents. He
said that1 his election would do away
once for all with criminal elections and,
if this end was attained, a. great good
