SOLDIERS OF JAPAN
ATTACK PORT ARTHUR
(Continued from Page One.)
Summing tip the situation today It la
noted that the Japanese dealt a severe
blow when they captured three Russian
-. transports yesterday and took as pris
oner 2,000 troor. 1
On the Manchuria 'railroad brldgei
which was blown up by the Japanese,
- 10 Russians were killed. After the ex
plosion a small, detachment of Japanese
was obliged to retreat, pursued by ft su
perior force of Russians, but the ex
plosion had the effect of rlppling the
toad for ae vera 1 days at least.- The es
act location of the bridge is not known
and may cut Port Arthur oft by rail.
A large Japanese,' force landed from
18 transports for Seoul today and others
re to follow. It is not yet confirmed
.' whether the warship Variag wa cap
' tured or sunk by the Japanese. , ;,
; ' Secretary Hay's note on the Integrity of
China has created & profound sensation
In Kurope; but it meets the favorable
pomment of most newspapers except
-those of Berlin. The German press
cores 'the United States severely. ,
'''A Japanese officer In the guise of a
spy Visited Port Arthur prior to the
attack Sunday midnight ; and "made a
note of the location of the Russian bat
teries and that-helped Japan to win her
first 'victory '
Xleelnt Trom Fort Arthur. -
, A strange eight greets the eyes of
visitors at Port Arthur. Stretching about
the narrow harbor is a new line of de
fenses and In the yellow dirt are, delv
ing an army of Russian soldiers build
ing earthworks . for the protection of
the place from attack. Near the spots
where rest the almost sunken battle
ships and cruisers are patrols of torpedo
boats that hall all passing craft and re
fuse- to, allow any to come nearer than
half mile. . The officers are taciturn and
uncommunicative and will give no de
- tails of their losses, but Insist that. in
tlhe fight the Japanese lost several tor
pedo boats and had at least one ship
- put out of action, which cannot be
proved. .: : " ,.. , . i. - , ,.
.. Troops are coming In hourly and the
: inhabitants) of the town are in fear that
they will be caught between the two
armies as the rush for points of safety
..outPldetho city ' has ' been stopped by
The Russians, who claim that the roads
and railroads must not be used for other
than military purposes.
" Th Second right.
v , In the second fight five cruisers were
damaged. , They formed the second line
of repulse.' and 'when the torpedo boats
t the -Japanese- got. through the line
. of battleships they forced the Russian
torpedo . destroyers to seek protection
behind the hulls of: the larger ships to
avoid the quick fire work of the Japan
ese gunners. Russian gunnery was slow
and inaccurate. - Had the ships fired their
Secondary, batteries with the precision
of American" gunners during ' the war
with Spain, not a Japanese torpedo boat
would have escaped. How they could
have done the deadly damage and got
away is surprising, and this leads some
to the belief that some of their boats
must have been" sunk. '
t The Poltavla was struck at the water
llne by a shell of large calibre and by
closing her compartments was saved
. from sinking, She was teamed to shal
low water and slowly grounded. '' The
.Nov Ik, Diana, and Askold passed through
the outer lines and engaged the main
Japanese fleet with the result that a
shower of well-directed snot rrom he
'Japanese compelled "them to return, dis
abled, to the protection of the shore bat
teries. ' The Japanese fire was concen
trated by division, that Is, two or more
ships picking out one Russian for a
given signalled time and letting it have
the full batteries with quick-fire guns.
The report today that the Japanese
fleet has withdrawn cannot be confirmed
Ttu smoke is frequently seen on the hori
zon. It Is thought the ships are out
several miles awaiting the arrival of
transports, which will attempt to make
landings under the fire from their sup
'porting vessels. The Russian are slow
)a the-matter 'of scouting and seem to
want to keep 'the torpedo boats under
cover, believing that they will need them
when the predicted attack of the big
fleet of the Japanese and her army at
the landings take place.
It is reported today that the 'Russian
repulsed two- force of Japanese trying
'to land 10 miles south of here, and that
the Japanese los In the engagement
was severe, There are a number of
guard In the streets, and everybody 1
subjected to- the closest examination. It
in 'known that the Japanese have se
cured a good Idea of the defenses and
.some change are being made In their
-plan. ). , ..v.. i .
. There Is much suffering among the
poorer classes here and. a long-continued
siege will create consternation.'

bond by Commissioner McKee. - He -Is
accused of illegal use of the malls. Roe
Nicholas, who .was identified with the
concern as an official, was discharged, as
It was shown that he had no active con
nection with the company. -At
the close of the preliminary-hear
tng Wakefield wa on the witness stand.
and by a mass of figures from the insur
ance companies and other loan and fra
ternal associations tried to convince
Commissioner McKee and United States
Attorney Hall that the plans of the
Home Buyers were feasible, and that he
could make good 11 the promises' made
In the contracts. - Mr. Hall lost patience
and began - a searching cross-question
ing about the methods of Wakefield in
his system of securing money and plans
for protecting the investors.. -
Wakefield took the stand that when
a contract matured that the money was
Invested In a lot and a house put on it.
and that the Increase In the value of
the property would more than make up
any shortage that might result in the
expense fund. :
Mr. Hall argued that after . a con
tract had matured it was out of the
hands of the company, and that the
man who held it would be entitled to
the Increase, In values ss lovng as he
paid for It according to the agreement.
In his closing talk the attorney for
the government said that the business
wa a scheme to defraud, and that those
who were associated with It were aware
of it If not, he said, they were not
safe men to be at large.

Mors than enough signatures have
been Yecelved to bring a petition for the
annexation of Mount Tabor to Portland
before the Portland city council.
In the districts immediately adjacent
to Portland, Just outside the city limits,
are more than 10,000 Inhabitants. This
includes the residents of Mount Tabor,
Montavilla, Tremont Woodstock. South
Mount Tabor, n part of Ients, Columbia
Slough and St. Johns. These figures of
population are based on the election re
turns: .Mount Tabor, 2,800 Montavilla,
2.000. A third district Including the
territory within a line drawn south from
the east line of Montavilla, South Mount
Tabor, Woodstock and a portion of
Lenta, ha a total population of between
8,600 and 4,000: Columbia Slough. 600;
St. John, 1.000. 1 '
P. P. Dabney, on, of the leader In
the movement' for annexation of Mount
Tabor, said today:
- "Petitions have been circulated among
the voters to secure the 16 per cent nec
essary for filing it with the city audi
tor for the Portland city council. The
required nvjmber of voters has signed,
and soon a ' all the '- peti
tion are turned In we will file the pa
per. If the council decide that It 1
best for the suburb to annex, and the
resolution passes by a two-thirds vote
of that body, tho issue will go to the
people of that district to decide by bal
lot at the next general election. A the
matter now stands, the people of Mount
Tabor have their Interests in Portland,
but have no say in the conduct of city
affairs. : ,:
"We have not an adequate water sup
ply; fire, or police protection, ' street
lights, sewer or health protection. . The
increase , tn value of property would
more than offset a slight additional taxa
tion. I think that the majority of the
people look at" it in this way, and but
a few have declared themselves opposed
to th movement." ' ;
The portion of school district No. S
which is mapped out for annexation con
tains a tract a mile and a half square.
Thewestjboundary is Portland boule
vard, south Hawthorne avenue, and the
east boundary Fast avenue. The north
boundary Is the south line of section
29 and 20. . .
' ; The district ha an estimated popula
tion of 2,800. The vote 1 figured at 800.
More than 600 achool children attend the
two achool. The assessed valuation is
1613,620. The difference in the tax levy
between Portland and Mount Tabcr has
In the past been on an average of 10
mills higher in the. city.
One substantial resident. In giving his
version of the affair, etated:
"I have my doubt whether the bene
fit that ..would accrue to Mount Tabor
by the annexation would counteract the
difference In the taxea,Whilft we would
be a part of the city and be in a posi
tion to . secure certain protections In
time, yet from .the present outlook it is
not likely that the city could do much
for us at present. The difference of 10
mills In the taxation would.' under 'the
last valuations, result in paying to the
city over 36,000 a year. If wa kept con
trol of this sum we could put In street
lights, hire watchmen and . get more
benefit than by paying into the city
treasury. The idea of getting Bull Run
water by annexation Is hopeless. The
supply from this source is barely suffi
cient tor the city, and the extension of
the system at present is out of the ques
tion. To supply the Lewis s?nd Clark
fair they are establishing an Independent
source. -Annexation would not benefit
the school, a they are supported by a
tix which the people would have to pay
anyway. In the "way of a fire depart
ment but little protection could be given.
as, no water 'Is available, and many of
the streets being unopened would tnake
It Impossible to reach many of the
houses. The police protection is at pres
ent not needed. -

Washington, Feb. 11. For1 the past
10 days the federal grand Jury of the
District of Columbia ha been hearing
testimony on the subject Of land frauds
in California, Washington. Oregon,,, and
other western states, and from the' evi
dence thus far received authorities1 say
that two or three officials In 'the gen
eral land office, department of the In
terior, several , government agents - in
the; field, and a number of prominent
men In San Francisco and other cities
will certainly be Indicted. y i : ;
'Now - that gigantic land 'frauds are
coming to light It is realised that they
are far more extensive than the post
offlce scandals. They involve more peo
ple of reputation and standing, reach
further In their ramifications, and the
amount of money lost to the government
will be Infinitely greater. .
The most Important Information given
the grand Jury came from a special agent
of the land office, who for years was a
member of a ring of successful graft
ers, operating both In San Francisco and
Washington. He has revealed everything,
from the time he was tempted with
bribes to betray his trust to the dis
covery of the frauds, and his decision
to turn state's evidence In order to aav
himself. - ' .- - .: . : .
It is expected that indictments will
be returned against several minor offi
cials in the land office, against members
of two prominent real - estate firms in
San Francisco, and others, Including a
banker, a notary public, a member of
the California legislature, and several
Influential business men. They will be
charged with having bribed government
officers and with obtaining 'large tracts
of publlo lands Illegally.
i The grand Jury has been hearing evi
dence in 'the matter-' for nearly two
weeks, but the investigation Is expected
to last probably a month longer.. Sub
poenas have been Issued for a number
of persons residing In California, . Ore

f"My life has been saved by Duffy's
Pure Malt Whiskey. I can truthfully
say that I would not be among the ltvi
. lng today but for Duffy's. I have used
it as a medicine for many years, and
will oontinue to recommend it to all suf
fering from consumption and throat
troubles. Duffy's Pure Malt Whiskey
actually cures consumption; my own
case is a living evidence of the fact
"I am in my 70th year, and in rugged'
health. ' A number of years ago 1 had
three severe attacks of grip, the last
one being followed by pneumonia, 1
;was left with a bad cougn and sever
. hemorrhages, qf the lungs. The doctors
'did not help me and I was in despair :
'because consumption was upon me, I"
' tried cough medicines and so-called con
sumption cures without benefit and was .
nearing my end," when a good neighbor
brought be a bottle of Duffy's Pure Malt
Whiskey. It, helped ma f Am the first
and I ' began to mend. Eight bottles
completely cured me.
"1 slways keep a bottle of Duffy's In
the house and when-I feel the least
badly I take it according to direction.
' It keeps me well and hearty."
