Yokohama, Dec. 19. The first Japan
ese army, under command of Field Mar
shal Nbdzu, Field Marshal Yamagata
having been invalided home, is operating
from Chien Len Chung with detach
ments thrown out toward New Chwang
and Moukden. Little headway is being
made. The country is difficult to trav
erse, and the enemy is making resistance.
It appears the first army is not anxious
to get to New Chwang or Shanghai

found In a Garret.
Perth Amboy, N. J. Dec. 19. A vain
able discovery, it is believed, has been
made here. Raphael's celebrated lost
painting, "The Holy Family of Loretta,"
done 1513, has emerged again from an
eclipse of obscurity. A good authority
on works of art has pronounced the pic
ture' to be a genuine Raphael, but how'
it came here remains to be revealed.
After being knocked about here for sev
eral months as valueless, it has found
its way to a New York collection. The
old painting has lain for a number of
years In the garret of Rev. P. F. Con
nolly, rector of St. Mary's Roman Cath
olic church. Last epring during house
cleaning time, the picture, covered with
the dust of several decades, was thrown
into the yard as worthless. A son of
Daniel Gates, the local auctioneer, saw
the picture, and asking for it, was told
to take it away. The boy took it to his
father's shop, where it was cleaned up
and placed in the window awaiting a
purchaser. A few weeks ago Thomas
MacCan, a local painter, saw the pic
ture, and taking a fancy to it, paid $12
for it. He knew nothing of the real
value until a friend from New York,
who called at the house, offered him
$250 for it, which was accepted. The
painting was shipped to New York,
where it was sold for $500, and now
hangs in one of the finest collections in
the country. Its real value has juEt
been disclosed. The name of the last
purchaser cannot be ascertained, as the
transaction is one that brings with it no
honor. From what can be learned the
painting is without doubt the long-lost
Holy Family of Loretto," painted by
Raphael in 1513. How it came to Perth
Amboy is bard to guess. It -was un
doubtedly at one time part of the Eg-
gleswood collection, which, when
the Spring family was in its zenith, was
one of the best and oldest collections in
tbe 'country. Civil war and business
troubles reversed the fortunes of that
family, and their collection was scat
tered about the country. The most
plausable explanation, the only one that
is given by Father onnolly for the
presence ot tne picture in ms garret, is
that it must have been brought there
by one of bis servants, who was at one
time employed on the Eggleswood es
tate. ' Another theory advanced is that
the painting was stolen from the studio
of Geoege Inness, which was part of the
Eggleswood estate, and occupied by him
a number of years. The present owner
claims that he has been offered $10,000
for the old painting a number of times
during the short period it has been in
The Foreigners In Peking-.
London, Dec. 19. A dispatch to the
