Chefoo, Nov. 10. Its mountain, ac

proving costly obstacle to the Japa
nese, On the mornings ot November
S and t fierce assaults on the position
were made by the Japanese who were
repulsed. During the second assault

The Russians were holding the
trenches on the boundary of the
mined sections. Six or seven hundred
were killed. The Japanese, having
not reached the place, were unhurt.
Its mountain owes the best part of
Its strength to the peculiar topography
of the surrounding country which pre
vents a direct artillery fire and does
not enable the Japanese to advance
trenches with the success evident else
where. The Japanese advanced on It In both
Instances from behind distant hills
with the fullest force the ground would
allow but In the long distance which
they were compelled to traverse In
the face of machine guns their ranks
were melted. Both times the Japa
nese broke the wire entanglements In

off was seen trying to bite the wires.

TELLS OF DISCOVERY.
Alaskan Indian Saw lll-Fated Steamer
Go to the Bottom.
Yaldea, Nov. 10. Though nearly a
year has elapsed, the exact time,
place and manner of the loss ot the
Ill-fated Alaska steamer Discovery Is
just now known. This Interesting In
formation comes from Chief John, of
the Uttuya bay tribe of Indiana
Chief John was perhaps the last person
living to see the Discovery afloat
The old Indian stated that the vesse
was foundering when he saw her No
vember ! the day after she left
Takutat Apparently her officers were
trying to put Into Uttuya bay, but
seemingly they had no control over the
vessel. An awful storm raged at the
time. The Discovery, seemingly
waterlogged, pitched and rolled. Phe
would plunge down bow first and al
most sink from view, then rise and
go down astern. For nearly an hour
Chief John saw her laboring, when she
disappeared altogether while round
lng the point on the southern side of
At the time the wind was blowing a
living gnle. Heavy seas were running
and so angrily that no small craft, had
any been there, would have dared to
Chief John says that there can be no
doubt that the Discovery went down
while rounding the southern part of
Littuya bay and that every person on
board of her must have perished. The
old native Is regarded as truthful and
trustworthy not only by the people of
his tribe, but the whites as well.
The Discovery sailed October 15.
1903, from Nome for Seattle. She had
upwards of thirty passengers on board
when she left Nome, but many of them
left the vessel at Sand Point, Kodlak
and Valdes. Takutat was the last
port made by the Discovery.
AN ICE JAM AT DAWSON.
Rising Wster Starts Upheaval and
City's Fire Engines 8wept Away.
Dawson, Nov. 10. Ice Jammed In
front of Dawson Sunday morning and
remained closed until early this morn
lng. The river rising gradually
caused an upheaval of the Ice, sweep
lng all but one of the fire engines In
the Dawson fire department, the
steamer Lightning, various scows and
200 cords of wood on the waterfront
down the river.
Engine No. 2, located In a covered
scow on the shore of the river, broke
the cables like strings. The scow was
carried down stream a quarter of a
mile and Is now In the middle of the
river nearly opposite the city. En
gine No. 1, more centrally situated In
front of the town, had the hardest
shaking up, but finally was made fast
a few blocks below. Engine No. S, on
a scow, was carried nearly to the
northern limits of the city. The
steamer Lightning was carried about
a mile below the city and la now
jammed near the bluff of Moesehide
Dawson's winter wood supply was
piled on the beach when the water
rose, and much was lost. The Balva
tion Army's gasoline sawmill was
When the jce finally stopped rising
it left Dawson with only one engine
available In case of fire.
TRADERS IN OISTRESS.
Said to be Without Food as Result of
Han Francisco, Nov. 10. There Is
report current In the city that the fur
tinders In the. stations along the
Okhotsk sea must be Hourly starving
to death, as the Ill-fated steamer
Mineola failed to reach those stations.
According to the story, the vessel
haj visited some three stations and
vv.ia on her way to the Okhotsk sea
when she was wrecked.
For years this port has been supply
ing the men at these stations, with
food, and If by any chance provisions
fall to reach them they have no way
to get food.
It Is said by those who know the
conditions in those lonely places that
the wretched fur traders are abso
lutely dependant on the outer world
for the necessities of life, as they have
no means by which they can kill game,
if by chance there Is any game to kill.
It Is thought that for this reason
there will be sent another vessel to
those waters, which will be laden with
provisions for the unhappy fur trad
A Ban Francisco firm has hud this
business for many years and has
been chartering vessels for this trade,
This trade has, however, increased
so largely that It ts contemplated to
have a regular line of steamers to
trade with those far northern Asiatic

FRENCHMEN TO BANK FOR CHINA
Ready to Supply Funds to Handle Gov
rnment Banking Business.
Shanghai. Nov. 10. The attempts of
the Chinese government to supply an
Impertul bank tor China having failed,
owing to the distrust prevalent among
the natives In regard to entering Into
anything which savors of government
control, French officials and merchants
are negotiating with the Chinese cen
tral authorities with the object In
lew of advancing the funds necessary
for the purpose.
M. Chnsenlon, a retired Shanghai
merchant. Is representing the Iiunque
do Paris in the enterprise, and It Is es
timated that he has spent 60,000 tails
presents to officials to secure his
object. The promoters offer to start a
bank with 10.000,000 taels with the pro
viso that the manager and the chief
accountant shall be French. If they
are successful In Inaugurating this
banking enterprise, its Influence on the
trade of other countries will be con
siderable, the full extent of which may
estimated when it Is understood
that all moneys of the board of revenue
must be lodged In the projected bank
