FIGHT AT SEA
Russian fleet at Port Arthur
PORT IS EXPECTED TO GIVE UP
Opinion Dosed on Assertions Thai
Squadron Would Make no Sortie
Until Hope Was Gone.
Toklo, Oct. 7. Toklo Iirb advices
that Uto yesterday evening a naval bat
tle had occurred at Port Arthur. While
no details are obtainable other than
that the right la said to have followed n
sortie on the part of the Itusaian squad
ron, tho belief prevails that there enn
be no doubt as to the outcome Tho
ltussian vcssols, as is well known, ore
in no condition to meet Admiral Togo's
weU-equlppcd and thoroughly repaired
tleet. In addition to this, tho Hus
sions aro greatly Inferior in numbers.
A sortie at this tlmo by tbo Russian
fleet would hav peculiar significance,
as it would indicate the In ml fnices
found their petition had become unten
able, and tho fall of the stronghold is
now expected to follow quickly. It has
been stated on numerous occasions late
ly, and on tho best of authority, that
the battle-torn tleet bottled up in the
harbor ot the Port would make uo fur
ther attempt to escape, until the last
hope of relief or holding out had gone.
rCARS AN AMERICAN PLOT.
European Statesmen Dcllcvcs She
lias Designs on Trade.
Palis, Oct. 7. Some European
statesmen are seriously oncerned for
the economic future ot Europe. Cer
tain among them, see, or fancy they
see, a deep-laid scheme on the part of
the United States for abtorbing the
commerce of Asia, and appear to think
the moment has arrived to issuo a seri
ous note of warning.
Today M. Melin, ex-prime minister
and leader ol the French Protectionists,
sounds an alarm in the Republique
Francaise in an article entitled "Tho
United States in Asia."
M. Melin says no mistake should be
made by Europe. He says it is in the
direction ot tho Far East America is
evidently turning its commercial am
bition. England, he says, will prefer
to throw itself into the arms of the
great American republic, which is
close to her and may render her service.
In conclusion M. Melin says:
"One cannot refrain from rather
melancholy reflections on the commer
cial and economic future of old Europe.
The more her industry increases that
much more her machinery improves,
and the more her warehouses are cram
med with goods, Just so much the more
restricted and narrow her expansion
abroad becomes. She now finds herself
in the presence of a giant, who, with
mighty Japan, is taking away her cus
tom. After having seized a portion of
that of South America, the giant la
now preparing to deprive her of that of
the Yellow races, which is tho most
important in the world. The issue
promises to leave to Eurpe the negroes
of the Soudan and the vast regions ot
Africa, but until that proves profitable
poor Europe will have time to slew in
her own Juice."
WILD RACE TO ESCAPE DANGER.
Dlast furnace rilled With Mot
In Wake of Trolley Car.
New York, Oct 7. A ten-ton rolling
blast furnace filled with hot iron used
for the welding of the Joints ot trolley
tracks has been the cause ol an excit
ing ride for a carload of people in New
ark, N. J. The furnace became un
manageable on the top of a steep hill,
and started down with rapidly increas
ing speed in the wake of a trolley car
bound toward the center of the city.
The motorman put on full speed, but
the mass of iron and fire gained stead
ily. When it seemed a disastrous col
lision was inevitable, the car crew and
ten passengers, several of whom were
women, held a hurried consultation
and decided that the only chance to
save their lives was in Jumping.
After the race bad gone on for a
quarter of a mile, with the furnare
steadily gaining, the runaway machine
swerved and struck an oncoming car.
The passengers escaped serious injury.

at as early a date as possible. It Is

of tho empire, and tho question Is out
sldo of the direct field of diplomatic
negotiation. Hy referring tho lepre
sentation of tho United States, compli
ance with which would involve a modi
fication of the passport laws, to the
commission, which body Is competent
to act theicou, a declson of the question
may be directly reached.
An otticial of thu foreign olllce has
been appointed by Count Umsdnrff to
sir with the commsslon, thus insuring
consideration of tho International as
pect of the question. Moreover, the
commission will sit under the dlicction

SOVEREIGNTY IS RECOGNIZED.

Washington, Oct. 0. Chile has
formally recognWed tho absolute sov.
erriguty of the United States over thu
Panama canal tone. Other nations
which have l-en holding back to await
the outcome of the diplomatic test ease
will do the same. The lesult will bo
that practically all tho foreign diplo
mats on the Isthmus will Iw accredited

Chile some time ago applied for an
equatum for Greonlmo Oso, who was
appointed consnl at Panama. The re
quest was withheld, owing to the un
settled condition of affairs. Though
this country exercises full control over
th) canal xone, the land Mongs to
Panama. Today tho secretary of state
