Is beyond controL Dozens of large
cattle bams filled with cattle were
burned, together with the stock. The
cries of the steers were pitiful In the
extreme. They were chained fast and
hod to take their fate. Thousands of
people are In the vicinity of the fire
and the entire police force has been
drawn from other ports of the town to
keep the crowds beyond the danger
line. Roundsman Palmer was serious

neath the ruins. A crowd of, several
thousand women and children, relatives
of employee, are screaming and trying
to break through the wall of police to
discover if their loved ones are dead
or alive. Chaos reigns supreme. ,

Say Kuropatkin's Policy Is Faulty in
Paris, June 4. Leading military au
thorities here expect an early fall of
Port Arthur and view this as the moat
serious If not irreparable blow to Rus
sia, the present condition of Port Ar

and Sedan during the Franco-Prussian
war. It is pointed out that Kuro
pat kin is making the same fatal mis
take in regard to Port Arthur's ability
to resist that the French made in con
nection with , Metx. Military critics
without exception disapprove of Kuro
patkin's policy of non-resistance.
