Japanese Rely on Cruisers and
Itojcslvertsky Awaits the Arrival of'
Xcbogatoff, "Who Is Due to Join
Him on May. 5 Using
Hainan as Base.
TOKIO, April 27. (4. P. SL)-Thc move
ments of the squadron commanded by
Admiral Rojestvensky and the intentions
of the Russian commander continue to
be the subject of -general interest and
speculation. The last Japanese reports
ore conflicting and confusing. They do
not indicate definitely the purpose of Ro
jestvensky, but It is evidently the inten
tion of the Russian "Admiral to await a
junction with the division commanded by
Admiral Nebogatoff, which Increases the
probability of his Intention to give Ad
miral Togo a decisive battle.
It is assumed that Rojestvensky will
bring all the ships and guns possible into
action If he Intends to fight decisively or
that he will detach and abandon his slow,
oumborsome and useless- ships if he In
tends to run the gauntlet to Vladivostok.
It Is, believed that the location and date
of the engagement will depend entirely
on Rojestvensky.
The Japanese defensive plans arc con
coaled with absolute secrecy. The proc
lamations issued are viewed calmly by the
officials and public. The people appreciate
the importance of retaining the sea power
of Japan and the great consequences
which hinge on victory or defeat, but they
are confident of success owing to the su
periority in numbers and strength of the
armored cruisers of Japan, which, it is
believed,' will counterbalance the Russian
superiority in battleships. The prospec
tive junction of the fifth Russian division
with the other divisions of the Russian
squadron and the disadvantage at which
Japan is placed owing to the shortage of
battleships apparently cause no apprehen
sion here. The Japanese rely on their su
periority in mobility personnel and
morale and "tan the condition of their war
ships to bring them victory.
, Extending the comparison beyond the
first line of battle, it is argued that Japan
possesses a preponderating and valuable
advantage in lighter cruisers, torpedp
boat destroyers, torpedo-boats and subma
rine boats.
The proclamation of martial law In the
island of Formosa, which Is strongly and
extensively defended, is tne only public
announcement of the defensive steps
taken by the Japanese. The public does
not know the location of Togo's squadron,
the officers and men having ceased com
municatlon with their friends and fam
ilies. ' .
Report That RussiansCjit . Cable, Is
. Confirmed.
LONDON, April 27. No further news
has-been received of either Rojestvcnsky's
or TNebogatoff's squadrons.
The report is confirmed that the sub
marine cable has been cut at Hainan,
and, according to the Dally Telegraph's
correspondent at Tbklo, the authorities
have learned that the Russians arc using
Hainan as a. base.
Ships Left Behind Seem to AAvait
KAMRANH BAY. via Saigon. Cochin
China, April 27. The only ships remain
ing In Kamranh Bay are four German
transports. All the rest of the transports
and the Rlissian hospital ship Orel and
other vessels left behind by Admiral
Rojestvensky left the bay.yesterday morn
ing. This fleet Is now assembled outside
the bay. and forms an extended line,
stretching from Cape Varela to the head
of Kamranh Peninsula. The torpedoboats
are scouting in all directions. The ships
seem to be awaiting Vice-Admiral Nebo
gatoff'e division.
The French cruiser Descartes, having
on board Admiral de Jonquleres, the
French commander in these waters, re
turned to Nhatrang, near Kamranh Bay,
after steaming around the Russian squad
ron, and subsequently returned to Saigon.
The two freight-laden steamers cap
tured by Admiral Rojestvensky were un

they are suspected of having contraband

could not unite his division with Vlce

until May 5.
The general opinion Is that their junc
ture Is assured, on the theory that Ad

south to meet Nebogatoft, since by so
doing he would leave the way to Vladi
vostok open to Rojestvensky.
Drying of Manchuria Roads Faclli
tatcs Oyama's "Work.
LONDON, April 2S. The news of the
resumption of fighting In Manchuria Is
supposed here to show that the Japanese
have now decided not to await the issue
of the impending naval contest, but to
utilize the few weeks intervening between
the drying up of the thawed-out roads and
the arrival of the Summer rains In June
for the resumption of the land campaign.
The completion of the railway to Mukden
will greatly simplify Field Marshal
Oyama's task of provisioning his vast
army, and will thus facilitate the renewal
of hostilities.

THE DALLES, Or., April 27. (Special.)
--Governor George E. Chamberlain, Secre
tary of State F. I. Dunbar and State
Treasurer Charles SI Moore, constituting
the State Portage Railway Commission,
arrived here tonight for the purpose of
making the regular monthly Inspection of
the Portage Railway. The Board will go
over the entire road today, and in this
Inspection will have as Its guests J. N.
Teal, representing the Open River' Asso
ciation, and the transportation committee
of the Portland Chamber of Commerce,
and possibly J. A- Smith, president, and
W. J. Mariner, secretary of the Open
River Association, and J. T. Peters, of
the executive committee of that asso
ciation. This Inspection tour will begin with a
drive to Big Eddy, and from there to
Mosshouse Curve. From that point the
party will complete the inspection by
means of the engine lately placed on the
Portage Road. Governor 'Chamberlain to
night said: "This Is simply our regular
inspection, but I- think I can say it will
be our last, since I believe that the "next
visit of this board will be for the purpose
of taking part In the formal opening of
the Portage Road. From what we know,
the road Is almost completed and there Is
no doubt as to its being ready for opera
tion on May 15. We will be able to tell
more exactly, however, when we get
through this Inspection."
J. N. Teal said: "From what I have
heard of the progress of the Portage
Road, It will certainly be completed on
time. What we are peculiarly and partic
ularly interested in, however. Is the pro
vision for commerce above the road. This
is being arranged for, and within a very
short time the dream of the opening up
of the Inland Empire will be a reality.
It is peculiarly coincident that the open
ing up the Columbia should occur just
100 years after It had been traveled by
Lewis and Clark."
The 'Commission will go over the route
of the Portage Road tomorrow and leave
for Portland in the evening.
Fugitive San Francisco Tax Collector
Has Probably Left Country.
SAN FRANCISCO, April 27. The grand
jury tonight returned two indictments of
felony and embezzlement against Edward
A. Smith, the missing City Tax Collector,
.and bench warrants, were issued for his
arrest. The Indictments were made In
consequence of the failure to pay Into the
city treasury sums aggregating about $39,-
000 personally collected by Smith from the
Southern Pacific Railway Company for

to whom he paid much attention, is re
ported to have gone to China, and there
is a suspicion that he also may be travel

According to the Bulletin, when Smith

accompanied by a woman who, on the pre
vlous night, had said she was going to
Hot Springs, Ark., "to meet a man who
had made $50,000 In one day."
The checking up of the accounts in his
office was in progress today, and con
tlnued Into the night, and it was unau
thoritatively stated at a late hour that
the defalcation had been brought up to
$90,000 by the discovery that numerous
small sums collected by Smith have not
been turned into the treasury.
As a result of the exposure of the short
age in Smith's office, an official Invest I
gallon has been commenced Into the con
dition of the county treasury.
Smith was formally removed from office
today at a meeting of the Board of Su
pervisors, at which Mayor Schmitz pre
Deputy McCabe. at present In charge of
the Tax Collector's office, devoted most
of today to going over the delinquent
tax lists. He Is calling up the larger
delinquents to ascertain whether or not
they are really delinquent.
He quickly found three large taxpayers
who had paid Smith sums totaling over
WW. but he had not credited them with
these amounts, showing them still delln

Other similar cases were discovered as
the day wore on. The City Attorney has
taken the preliminary steps to recover as
much as possible from the residence and
other property belonging to Smith In this
city, .suit having been filed today. The
surety company which is on Smith's bond
will make up any deficit.
Mayor Schmitz said today: "In round

Easter Services Neglected by Timid

ST. PETERSBURG, April 27. A feeling
akin to consternation has been caused by
the publication In this morning's papers
of renewed rumors of an impending pop
ular outbreak. It is feared that the slight
est event incidental to malevolence among
the vast congregations which will attend
the churches on Saturday night may cause
a panic, with appalling consequences.
The Mayor is being urged to convene
the Municipal Council and take especial
measures, to cope with the situation, and
it Is expected that the Prefect of Police
will issue a reassuring proclamation, but
the alarm is so great that it would have
little effect. The exodus at Easter will
be unprecedented.
Elaborate preparations to crush any pos
slble disorder in its inciplency have been
taken, and the Chief of Police today Issued
an order instituting the most stringent
regulations for the period between April
29 and May S. Gatherings In the streets
are prohibited, and men under the influ
ence of liquor will be sent to the police
stations Instead of, as usual, being or
dered directly home. The Chief of Police's
order and Governor-General TrepofTs

ST. PETERSBURG. April 27. The post
of Governor-General of Moscow, which
was temporarily abolished January 13, has
been re-established by imperial decree
and General Kozloff, former Chief of the
Moscow Police, has been appointed Gov

capitals Is assured. -
The Liberals consider the appointment
another reactionary step. A prominent
Liberal said:
"We expected the proclamation of gen
eral amnesty for political prisoners as an
Easter gift. Instead, the Emperor gave
us Kozloff."
Kozloff's entire career has been spent
in the police gendarmerie, beginning as
Assistant Chief of Police at Riga In 1361,
and later, during the exciting Nihilistic
days alternating as Chief of Police of
Moscow and St Petersburg. He succeeded

Kozloff succeeded In what he set out to

Imperial master, who heaped decorations

Gorky Tells of Ignorance and Super

LONDON, April 27. Rev. Edward "Wil

an article In the Guardian, describes an
interview he had with Maxim Gorky at
Bilderllngshof, during the course of an
episcopal tourx of Russia. The novelist
was sulIerlD from a colo caught, h& $jcJL
plaincd, while a prisoner at St, Peters
burg. In a damp, cold cell, and because
of an Insufficiency of clothing. In other
respects, Gorky said, owing to the kind
ness of the soldiers on guard and the
jailers, who "admired his writings, he had
toot suffered greatly.
In conversing on the subject of religion.
Gorky declared he had never written nor
would he write any thing, against religion.
On the contrary, he earnestly desired to
see. his people taught the true, vital re
ligion. But he had devoted years to trav
eling afoot in Russia, inquiring into re
ligious conditions, the result convincing
him that the monks and thef clergy gen
erally were ignorant and unable to teach
the religion they professed, and that su
perstition and formality pervaded their
so-called religion, about which there was
no reality.
"They taught that there were 60 or 70
Virgin Marys," he said. "It was sheer
polytheism. As to dogmatic teaching, that
did not exist."
Gorky condemned' the war, which, he
said, had ruined the peasants, and was
ruining the country. Generally It was un
popular and hated throughout Russia. The
Russians neither wished for or understood
why It was waged; soldiers went to it with
the utmost reluctance; It was waged for

LONDON, April 27. Fresh outrages on
Jews in Russia are predicted by Anglo
Jewish envoys, who have returned to
England after having visited their kin

Czar's empire. They say that the cir

Guards Hit Back at Assailants.
In order to protect their wagons and
drivers from assaults while passing
through the streets, the Employers' As

have shown a decided disposition to re

made upon them by strike sympathizers.
This afternoon a wagon containing 22
nonunion colored teamsters was passing
the corner of Desplalnes and Harrison
streets, when It was attacked by a crowd
of strike sympathizers, who ran out of a
saloon. Several bricks were thrown, and !
one of the negroes was struck, whereupon
he drew a revolver and fired into the
crowd, hitting nobody. The mob broke
and scattered.
At "West Taylor and Desplalnes streets
a dozen nonunion men were more or less
seriously injured by missiles thrown by
a crowd. Another, disturbance took place
at State and Adams streets, when two
wagons loaded with coal were driving

and the detective promptly knocked him
Into the gutter.
Guarded by 150 private detectives em
ployed by the Employers' Teaming Com

Coal Company passed over the Grand-

who were engaged around the freight
