Motoow, Nov. 1& -General Kuroki, the fameus commander ef tho Jap
anesa army In front of Mukden, Is dead. Kuroki's death followed wounds
eelved during ths recent fighting. Prince Siastinil will sueoeed him, a
though Nodsu will have actual command of ths army.
' Ths news of the death of ths famous commander comes in a telegram
received today from Memirovltch Danchenko, ths well known Russian war
correspondent of ths Associated Press, who wires from Mukden that the rc
ports cf Kuroki's desth have been confirmed. Some time ago it was rumor'
ed that Kuroki had been killed, butlittle credence wee placed in the story.
Now, however, comes confirmation cf the report.
Aocording to Danehenko's version, Kuroki was struck by a splinttr
from a shell, which tore out a portion of the breast and abdomen, inflicting
fatal wounds. Ths general Is said te have succumbed at Lise Yang, Ooto
bar 4, and It is statsd in ths ditpstch from Danchenko that the body hss
been shippsd to Japan.
"The rumor is persistently current," Danchenko telegraphs, "that
kinsman of ths mikado, 8iastinil, literally the third prince,' has been ap
pointed to succeed Kuroki, but actual command of the army has been in
trustsd to General Nodxu, who is reviewina the operations.
"Alarming newt has been received from Port Arthur, but the absence

A rumor was current yesterday that
derelict three-mastsd schoonur had
been sighted off the Oregon const. The
report came from Seaside, where per
sons were said to have seen a disabled
vessel about a mile off shore. Ac
cording to the story, the vesacl seem
ed to be in distress, and a bot con
taining several man waa alleged to
have put oft from her. They weie
said to have been unable to effect a
landing, on account of the heavy surf.
The report was at once communicated
to the masters of the revenue eutter
Perry and the lighthouse tender
Heather, who went outside yesterday to
search for the derelict. No trace of
any disabled vessel could be found. The
report had It that the derelict waa
seen near Tillamook rock about 3

house tender Heather was In that
vicinity at the hour named, the story
has been set down aa groundless. The
report emanated from the source which
recently reported a derelict which prov

belief of local shipping men that the
latest wreck reported was imaginary.
