Throughout th night th Russian gun-

Russian artilleryman poasessta -for hla
pieoe, show no aiana of other than silent
determination to either die beside their
weapons or aenr ttiem with such dead-
llaaaa that th Japan will be ooat-
nelled to withdraw.
Th moat terrific fighting-, it Is being
gradually learned, attended th advance
of th Roaalaa left column. Th Japaa-
were so bant upon their turning
movement . that th men, finding them
atvea outnumbered and being gradu
ally driven back, practically courted an
nihilation in preference to defeat.
In on Instance a remnant of a raai-
aaant consisting of 4 Jape nee soldiers
and five officer were surrounded tn
Chinas village. Th Russian troop
had such greet admiration for the splen
did valor of th enemy that they ceased
firing and aent forward under a flag of
truce an appeal to th Japanes to sur
render. Thin waa firmly refused.
The Russian soldiers eheered th
Japan, but war nonplussed, aa they
hated to fire on a band of men so hope
lessly outnumbered, and a aeoond appeal
under a flsg of true waa made by ft
Russian ofnesr.
The Japan fncar tn onnand
ourteously thanked the Russian for his
proffer and submitted th matter to hi
snen a Individuals, telling them to each
net for himself In tb matter. Only flv
of th Japanea stepped outside and sur
rendered and th Ruse lane - retired

today tnetructed Pecretary Taft to make
a personal visit to Panama and confer
with to president, and other officiate
of the republic, regarding th question
arising over ths possession of th
United States of th canal son. .
Thm HuMdrr will laav November 14,
-Taft will take with him Minister Obal-
dta and William Nelson Cromwell, coun
sel of the new Panama aanal company.
It Is now stated that the situation haa
been most strained, and that open rup
ture of th two countries has been
barely averted. Tb feeling tn Panama
Is very bitter against the United ftatas,
and threats have bees mad, to. dynamite
th oanaL.
This new phase that haa developed la
th affaire of this oountry tn Ita rela
tions with ths newest republic bring to
mind th many published statements
and comments on the manner la which
the canal deal wa brought about and
successfully consummated. Almost a
year ago many rumors wer In circula
tion relative to the plana that were
adopted by a few to make million out
of the transfer of th canal right of way.
Th mmM than waa that the Panama
rosohiUoa wa fostered by a ayndloat
of Paris and New York brokers. No
thought of resolution, waa to owtward
appearances vlslbl until th prjcaad
liufa in th canal transfer reached a
stag where those Interested la tfc ayv
dloat saw th time waa ripe to make
a speculation that would yield mTTTton.
The person Interested In the syndicate
formed aa Immense pool for speculating
In th aha res and other securities of the
Panama Canal company. To further
their scheme an amount said to be llto,
000 waa furnished and Judiciously used
ta fiirt th. mum of the revolutt&Rarv
party. Of this amount ,000 waa used
to brlb th Colombian troop wneu tn
time arrived, to bav them leave th
Isthmus. v.
Oa the Parts bourse share of th
oanal company were selling for Tl. when
th syndicate of brokers took bold of
the revolutionary project. In a abort
Urn those same shares ware Mlllng at
111. At that price tfaa profits of th
syndicate war estimated at 4.00,40t.
Taking this Into consideration thar
ar many who have carefully kept In
touch with th affaire on tn tethmus,
who are Inclined to believ that, th
reports emanating from that country to
th effect that dynamiting and open
rupture ha been Imminent, ar only
th muttered rumblings of another
South Americas revolutionary plan to
fleece mor millions from th fluctuating
stocks oa the bourse. However, there
ar those who bear tn mlrtd the conflict
ing statements mad by Minister Barrett
and the representatives from the isth
mus, and th fact that Freeldont Roose
vlt haa 'deemed H necessary to send
Secretary Taft to eonfe on th situa
tion, and these ar Inclined to plaos soma
eredono In th report that th trou
ble Is of ft serious nature.
Bon even go so far a to intimate
that th Inquiry 1 for campaign pur-

Formerly our Janitor attended to bury
