Mitchell and Browncll Held to
Answer Charijes.
Mitchell Said to Havo Accepted Pay
While Senator Brownoll Had
Men Swear Falsely.
Portland, Feb. 2. Tho Federal grand
jury has spoken again and this tltno
two now and distinctly Important In
dictments navo oeon rcturncu, one
'against Senator Mitchell charging him
wtth violating section 1782 of tho re
vised statutes of tho United States,
which provides that no one holding
tho olllco of senator shall receive any
compensation whatsoever for any work
done, to further matters relating to tho
work of tho government in any depart
ment; tho other against btato benator
George C. Brownoll, alleging that lie is
guilty of subornation of perjury In hav
ing induced Fred Slevoro and John A.
Howland, two axmon formerly In the
employ of Surveyor General Henry
Mcldrum, to swear falsely before tho
grand jury in regard to tho work done
by Hrownell as n notary while making
affidavits in connection with the work
of the surveyor general's otllce, all of
which is in violation of section 5303 of
tho revised statutes.
It has been rumored for some time
that Senator Mitchell would yet have
to faco another charge than tho one
which has been hanging over him for
totno time, but it was not known from
which direction tho blow would fall.
Many theories have been advanced and
among tlietn an entanglement witn
Frederick A. Kribs, and this has proved
to bo tho correct guess. It was for
work dono for Kribs that tho Indict
ment has bcon returned. The senator
lias been indicted under tho same sec
tion of the statutes which waa used
against Congressman Driggs, of New
York, who pleaded guilty to tho charges
against him, and is afro the same
charge brought against Senator Bur
ton, who was recently convicted and
granted a new trial.
Croton Dam, Largest Piece of Ma
sonry of Modern Time.
New York, Feb. 2. After 10 years
of labor and the expenditure of $9,000,
000. tho new Cornell dam, near Croton-on-lludson,
in Westchester county,
from which this city wilt draw largely
for its water suplpy, has been practical
ly completed. It is the largest piece of
masonry in the world, except tho Pyra
mids of Egypt. The tlood gates have
been shut down for the first time and
the dam has begun to fill with water.
It is estimated by the engineers that
it will require about two years to fill.
"When the water reaches the base of its
coning it will make a lake 10 miles
long. The water will rise 30 feet above
the old dam. The new dam will liold
30,000,000,000 gallons of water. Half
a dozen towns which occupied tho site
were abandoned.
Is Why Army In Philippines is
Suppliecfrom Abroad.
Washington, Feb. 2. Senator An
keny today called on tho quartermaster
general to ascertain why all army beef
for tho Philippines is purchased either
in Argentina or Australia, to the ex
clusion of American beef. He was told
that the government can get Argentina
or Australian beef delivered at Manila
for OH coots a jtouml, far below the
price at which any American dealers
will agree to deliver it. The war de
partment eays that, until congress
passes a law requiring the purchase of
American meats, it will continue to
supply the Philippines at the lowest
-CUR? obtainable.

Battle Carried On In Blizzard by Jap
anese Whan Forced to Fight
to Savo Position,
Toklo, Jan. 31. Tho troops which
twice captured Port Arthur, once from
tho Chinese and then again from the
Russians, have administered n defeat to
General Kuropatkin's army from which
it cannot possibly recover during the
winter. Field Marshal Oyama has sent
a dispatch to the imperial headquar
ters Indicating that the conquerors of
Port Arthur were sent by him to meet
the enemy in the bloody battle just de
cided, owing to their long practice un
der arm and their Irks I ability to
withstand the hardships of the awful
Maucliurian winter. The result of
the struggle so far has proved tlu wis
dom of his course.
Kvery dispatch received from the
front tells of winter horrors such as no
other battling army ever had toeoutend
with. Many inches of snow cover the
country as far as the eye can see. The
ridges are snow-capttcd. Avalanche
upon avalanche has tumbled into the
trenchs, indicting untold suffering upon
the soldiers therein.
Field Marshal Oyama's dlspatefies
have convinced the military authori
ties here that he was by no means anx
ious to engage in the battle, and, in
fact, ermited the Russians to take
several positions in his vicinity to save
the troops from tho unspeakable strain
of fighting in the storm. But the Rus
sian advance was made withh such en
ergy and determination by large bodies
of troop occupying miles of ground
that Oyama finally decided to accept
tho challenge.
A large ortion of General Nogl's
army, both his regulars ami his re
serves, were placed In the vanguard.
Among them wcrethotisamW of veterans
of the Chino-Japancse war, who, hav
ing done service in Manchuria in tl e
winter, were able to make progress ami
use their arms where less seasoned
troops would have tccn jtaralzyod.
The victory gained over the Russian'
right army is considered here even n
greater feat than was the capture of
Port Arthur, for, while the battle
raged, there were no trenches to seek
protection in and every shot of the
enemy was mode more deadly by tho
indescribable cold. For this reason
tho news from the front that Field Mar
shal Oyama is now following up his
advantage with relentless energy has
been received with amazement.
