wnat cnange would result from his as

"I will give an enlarged application of
the system at present in force, take the
usual precautions to prevent people from

application of measures destructive to

In every house where there has been

destructive measures for mosquitos. W

ST. PAUL, Minn., Aug. E. At the end
of the fourth, day .of the telegraphers
strike on the Great Northern and North

clare that the strike is. practically a
closed incident. According to Information
given out at the general offices, more than
SO per cent of the strikers on the North

supplanted with agents, a number claimed
to be sufficient to tide over traffic until
the remaining places can be filled.

Mr. Perham. in referring to the pro

tigating interruption in Interstate tele

would welcome the move.
"I hope the action will result In taking
the matter into court. I want a better
opportunity to get a fair hearing and to
make known to the public the real Issuo
In this controversy."
The announcement that J. J. Hill' would
return to St. Paul August 10 was -welcomed
by the telegraphers, who will ask him
to Intervene. It Is believed by the union
men that the cost of maintaining tho
struggle and the prospects of loss from
stock and grain movements will result in
Mr. Hill's taking a hand In bringing about
a settlement. Both railroads are giving
the strikers to understand that their
places will not be available to them after
they Are once filled.

ST. PAUL. Minn., Aug. 6. Enrly to
night General Manager H. J. Horn made
the following statement showing the first
serious break which has occurred in the
ranks of the Northern Pacific strikers.
He said:
"I have just received a report by wire
from Superintendent Beamer at Spokane,
who advises me that Chairman Haney
of the Idaho division publishes in the
Spokane evening papers a statement in
which he declares that the telegraphers
strike is already a failure. Chairman
Haney advises the men on the division
he represents, which includes 800 miles
of line, to report at- once for re-employment.
His action has had an important
effect and applications are coming in from
the Idaho division strikers.
"Superintendents on nearly every divi
sion reported this afternoon that men
are applying for reinstatement. This
matter has not been considered In detail
by the management.
"Trains are moving on time over the en

Conditions have improved very greatly.
More than S5 per cent of the Northern
Pacific stations are now supplied with
agents. Competent operators are going
West at the -rate of 60 a day to take
vacancies. The reports from the divisions
are encouraging."
"Superintendent Albee of the Pacific
division reports that S0CO people are be

about the same as yesterday. All trains
are moving, those of the Great Northern
more nearly on time than thoso ot the
Northern Pacific The smaller stations
east and west of both main line roads are
still without operators.
The telegraphers' strike chiefs, while
admitting trains are running, say the

and they believe the companies are ex

wrecks. Additions are being made slowly
to the working telegraph force of the
Northern Pacific and Great Northern, but
the block system on the former road is
still disqualified.
Strikers claim next week will see such
a congestion of freight as to seriously

of their ability, to move promptly all

LONDON, Aug. 5. (Special.) The news
that the commander ot the garrison of

of tho city the stringent orders that are
given out only In case -of a threatened
siege has created uneasiness but no sur
prise In St, Petersburg. There seems to
be a constant' fear in the Russian capital
that communication with Vladivostok may

It was not necessary that Baron
gawa's detachment should cover all the
distance to Ninguta before making the
detour that would bring It out near the
Russian lines of railway. On the con
trary, the chances are that it left the

let on the banks of the river of that name,
and thence crossed the gap in tho Llao

Suizfong, which flows Into the Avar Bay

and, as there Is a mountain road
for the greater part of the Jour

General Andricff has abandoned any in
tention that he may have had ot creating
a diversion by marching a Russian column
into Corea, and he has withdrawn his
forces, it would seem, to the Kovoklevak
depot. There Is no Russian army, as far
as can bo ascertained, east of KIrin, save
the Vladivostok garrison, and the pros
pects of that becoming isolated are un
deniable. It is probable that operations
will be conducted from the direction of
Sakhalin and this applies with greater
force to the situation today In that the
Russian railway headquarters has shifted
to Hawbaravka.
An expedition may perhaps ascend the
Amur and co-operate with the land forces
against tho Russian position as soon as
minor matters of administration have
been finally settled In the Island of Sah-
