points were rushed to Chicago and
taken to the stockyardi to fill the

The Japanese Made Ta Tche Kiao
Mukden, July 28. The Russians
have retreated lrom Ta Tche Kiao to
Ilai Cheng.
They decided to withdraw Iiom Ta
Tche Kiao Sunday evening. General
Zarabourieff, commanding the Fourth
army corps, who is General fitakel
berg's senior, resolved to take this
steD in conscouence of the reports of
scouts that the Japanese were turning
the left flank.
The Japanese foices aie believed to
include the whole of the armies of
Generals Oku and Nodzu. More tlmn
eight divisions of Japanese are engaged.
The rear guard action between Datch
apu and Ta Tche Kiao continued until
11 at night, wlien the Japanese were
within sight of the Russian entrench
ments. The Russians withdrew in per
fect order, favored by the beautiful

Japanese column in the vicinity of
Saitmatsza, which is believed to be
two divisions strong, is marching along
the valley of the Taitse, with the obvi
ous aim of cutting the railroad above
Liao Yang.
The evacuation of Ta Tche Kiao was
prepared for long ago by the Russians,
as military experts have repeatedly in
dicated. The retirement is not regard
ed as materially altering the situation.
The Russians had strongly fortified

Basis of 6rftish Settlement of
- Knight Commander's Loss.
London, July 28. The British gov
ernment is taking energetic action rela
tive to the sinking of the British steam
er Knight Commander by the Vladivo
stok squadron. All information re
ceived by the government tends to es
tablish in the official mind the belief
that an outiage has been 'committed
for which no excuse exists in interna
tional law.
The demands which will be made on
the Russian government will include
compensation to the owners of the ship
and to the owners of the jcwxls on
board the Knight Commander, an
apology for the action of the Russian
cruisers and an agreement Uiat in
structions shall be given which will
prevent a repetition of such action.
Blitish shipowners are up jn arms
over the danger which shipping is now
running and are bombarding the gov
ernment with representations looking
to the thorough protection of their in
terests. .
War Vessels Must Not Pass.
London, July 28. While the nego
tiations betwon Great Britain and
Russia respecting Red eea seizures
have been carried on in the mart con
(ciliatory manner, the Associated Press
learns that in the representations to
the St. Petersburg government, For
eign secretary Lansdowne declared that
Great Britain could not, in view of her
treaty alliance with Japan, allow any
interpretation to be placed . on treaties
relating to the Dardanelles which
would permit ol the free passage of ves
sels of the Rua-ian volunteer neet.
Action Delayed in New York.
New York, July 28. A telegram
from President Donnelly, who is in!
charge of the meat strikers main bead
quarters at Chicago, directing the local
union officials to call out all men em
ployed by the companies affiliated with
the so called beef trust here, was re
ceived today. No immediate action
was taken, however. The local repre
sentative, Mr. Eichelberger, said that
in view of the present conditions here,
it would not do to act hastily.
Fighting About Port Arthur.
Chefoo, Jrly 28. A junk bringing

that, when they left Port Arthur, July
Julv 22. heavy lighting was going on

that the Japanese have heavily fortified

Action of Czar's fleet ' Will In
tensify Unfriendliness.
Tokio, July 27. The acts of the
Vladivostok squadron in the Pacific
and of the volunteer fleet' in the Red
sea strengthen the belief here that Rus
sia is deliberately seeking to effect
Amercia, England and Germany, in the
hope of finding an avenue for retiring
gracefully from a disastrous war.
There is no argument over the right of
Russia to seize neutral vessels carrying'
actual contraband of war, but the wis
dom of destroying neutral prizes with
out trial, unless the subject is to in
volve other powesr, Is (generally ques
tioned. ' i ' "
It is believed that Aeierica will re
fuse to recognize Russia's extended list
of contraband and will speedily demand
a limitation to articles Wsonably con
traband, in order to protect her large
Oriental commercial interests.
It is expected that Ghat Britain will
protest against the finking of tire
Knight Commander ;ind demand trial
for seized British steamers, and that
Germany will make a second and more
vigorous protest.
The VladvioBtok warships are hover
ing about the course of the steamers
from San Francisco, proliably with the
hope of overhauling the liner Korea.
Warning, however, bars been given to
the Korea and sha has chance of elud
ing the Russians.
There will probably be otlier seiz
ures, and whatever be the determina
tion of the legal questions involved, or
whatever diplomatic action be taken,
it is confidently believed here that the
seizures will create a fettling of intense
irritation and unfriendliness against
Russia in America, Englnnd and Ger
many. Japan is anxious to localize the com
bat and avoid involving otlier powers,
but views with unfriendliness Die acts
of aggression against friendly neutrals
and treaty violations disadvantageous
to herself. In the latter connection
Japan regards the affair of the jvtHsase
of the volunteer fleet through the Dar
danelles as of more importance than
the acta of the ve.seejs subsequent to
such passage. '
Strike Has Become General In Chi
cago Stockyards.
Chicago, July 27. With all peace
negotiations broken off and with all
the allied trades unionB employed at
the different plants, with the exception
of the teamsters and stationary engin
eers, out on strike in sympathy with
the butcher workmen who quit work
two weeks ago, the stock yards strike
tonight had settled down to what prom
ises to be one of the bitterest fights be
tween capital and labor in the history
f America.
As has been threatened for some
time, the allied trades employed in the
packing industry quit work when called
on today to assist the striking butchers
in their efforts to bring the packers to
terms, la several instances the men
did not wait for the official notification
from their leaders to go on strike, but
threw down Uieir tools and quit work
of their own volition.
At 6 o'clock tonight the srtatement
wae made by M. J. Donnelly, president
of the butchers' union, that every
union man employed at the stockyards,
with the exception of the teamsters and
engineers, had responded to orders for
a general sypmathetic strike. The en
gineers, he declared, would join the
strikers tomorrow mooning, and, unless
there was a speedy settlement of the
difficulty, he said, the teamsters would
undoubtedly join their brother work
men in their struggle for supremacy.
According to Mr. Doruiel.y, today e
strike swelled the number of men who
have quit work at the' stockyards in
Cbiago alone to nearly 03,000 persons.
War Insurance Is Advanced.
London, July 27. Much anxiety is
felt here relative to certain ships now
ia Far Eastern waters, and it is be
lieved the Russian Vladivostok fleet
will capture several of them. As a re-
salt of this, insurance war risks have
advanced 7 guineas per cent, which a
few days ago were but" 10 shillings.
The Pritish steamer St.. Hubert, of
V064 tons, which is owned' in Liver-
peal, is overdue a week at Yokohama
and is almost certainly a Russian prize.
Fears are also expressed for the steamer
Romford and several colliers.
Lose iln Brisk Skirmish.
London, juiy z. a diepatcb te
newa agency from Liao Yang reporter
heavy aiUllery righting there all day
yesterday. The Ruesian casualties, it
is alleged, were thought not to exceed
400, while the Japanese are said to
have lost more men. The Japanese,
who were attacking the "southern de
tachment," according to the dispatch,
were forced to retire precipitately, leav
ing their dead and wounded on the
Move Out of Niu Chwang.
Paris, July 27. A dispatch to the
Matin from Niu Chwang says that
heavy filing continued all day long
July 24. The battle lasted for 16
hours. The Russians were driven back
on the east side and were reported to
be utterly rooted on the north. The
dispatch says the Russians evacuated
Niu Chwang. of which the Japanese

London, July 27. Specials to the
London morning papers confirm the
news of active operations at the seat
of war. The Telegraph's Chefoo cor
respondent, under date of July 23.
"A Junk from Dalny reports tnat
last night a Japanese fleet ol 20 war
ships and 20 torpedo boats fcombarded
llwangxhrn for three hours, paa ttie
forts replied." '
The same correspondent learns that
the Japanese first army is being largely
reinforced by veterans from the Te
serves. . The correspondent of the Stan
dard with the Japanese army, under
date of July 24 says:
- "It is difficult to understand the in
tentions of the Russians. Kuropatkin
is evidently bent on a retreat north-
waid, yet he lingers in the south, at
tracted apparently by Port Arthur."
The 0) respondent of the Chronicle,
in a dispatch dated at Mo Tieh Pass,
July 23, regards General Kuropatkin
as outmaneuvtved and anxious to
abandon Liao Yang' without lighting,
but also reluctant to retire while Port
Arthur remains uncaptured.
The Chronicle's Yinkow icorrespond
ent reports that there was hoavy fight
ing SatuoJay and Sunday in the neigh
borhood of Ta Tche Kiao with General
Stakelberg'f force, consisting of 20 bat
talions of inftfntry, a brigade of artil
lery and a divieiou of Cossacks.

Settlement of Red Sea Seizures' ,
Satisfactorily Arranged.
St. Petersburg, July 27. The Asso
ciated Press is able to state on the
highest authority that the Russian and
British governments have agreed on a
mutually satisfactory basis for a settle
ment of tiie question of the status of
Russian volunteer fleet steamers in the
Red sea and &he seizures by them of
British ships. A few minor points
still remain unsettled, but these will
probably be cleared up tomorrow, and
it is not expected that .further compi-
cations will arise.
Great credit for the satisfactory term
ination of this incident is due Foreign
Secretary Lamsdoif, who, it is ad

The attitude of feir Charles Hardinge,

Yokohama, July 27. The Vladivo
stok squadron yesterday sank the
steamer jKnight ConMuander, from
New York, off the province .of Izu, al
ter transferring the crew of the Knight
Commander to the steamer Tainan,
which arrived here this morning. The
Vladivostok stjuadron also captured a
German vessel trelicved to be the Ara

known British swamer. Xue two ves
sels were sent to Vladivostok iu charge
of prize crews. The Ameri(ii Trading

Chicago, July 27. Emulators of the
exploits of the carbarn bandits, four
youths arrested yesterday, confessed to
killing oae man in a saloon and hold
ing up and jnotburg a score of others at
ditterent times. The murder was that
of John Lane, etage carpenter of the Il

Japanese Government Silent.
Tokio, July 27. The passage of thif
Dardanelles by the Russian volunteer
fleet steamers, the seizures of German
mail and the capture in the Red sea by
Russia of the Peninsular & Oriental
steamer Malacca have attracted sreat
atttention throughout Japan. TI.e

United Slates. The idea ia well re
ceived in all circles here.
Thousands are Being Moved Onto
Cascade Torest Reserve.
Salem The news has reached this
city to the effect that the country in
the neighborhood of Breitenhush, in
the western part of the Cascade forest
reserve, is threatened with devastation
of vegetation by reason of the encroach
ment of the Eastern Oregon sheepmen,
with their enormous flocks ot sheep.
Already hundreds of sheep are to be
seen in the vicinity of Detroit, and, it
is said, there will be no less than -12,-
000 head in that part of the reserve be
fore the grazing season closes.
There is a queUion of whether the
grazing permits contemplate the en
croachmeut upon this territory, and
the settlers in that section are vigor
ously protesting against it.
lion. John Minto has returned from
a visit to Minto pass through the Cas
cades, and reports ',he encroachments
of Eastern Oregon sheepmen on the
western part of the forest reserve
are alarming the people of that part
of the country. Minto said that be
tween Warm Springs and Detroit, a
listaiice of 1(1 miles, he pawed through
six miles of Miecp, 1.7UU in number.
Minto considers it an outrage, ub he
does not think the sheepmen have the
rights so fur west as they are coming,
but thuy claim they have a stretch two
townships wide thero, and will bring
12,000 sheep into the district.
Summer outers and others there are
wonied, thinking the 'sheep will de
stroy all pleasure, and also the oppor
tunity for keeping domestic animals.

Linn County Growers Sec No Lice,
but Spray Nevertheless.
Eugene The sr.,rayinir. ot honi in
this couuty is how in progresi, and in
some yards is completed, and nothing
now remains nut for the hops to form
and ripen. There are no evidences of
lice of any cnusoquenee, but the grow
ers will spray JiiBt the same as if there
were millions, for they know full well
how little time It . takes for them to
make, their appeaarnce and ruin a crop
just as it is about ready to be harvested.
Reports regarding the probable yield
indicate that the crop will not be quite
so Heavy as last year in ijiost of the
yards, the dry weather having a ten
dency to cut short the yield, even
though in most cases the vines Lave
remained perfectly green and fresh.
The growth seems not to have been to
strong as usual. The total output of
the county, however, now promises to
be greater than a year ago, or on any
former year, the acreage being greater
than ever before. ' If everything goea
well from now until picking time, even
though there should be no moie rain,
it is safe to say this county will turn
out more than an average crop of hops.

ished in this locality. The price of
this product has been higher this sea
son than usual,' farmers realizing from
(8 to 12 per ton, not baled. Uarveetr
ing is progressing rapidly, and thresh,
ing will bitgirr in two wteka. Grain
will make a bettor crop than was ex.
pected, as the heads are well filled and
the grains plump, While the Btand ia
not so thick as usual, the yield will
fall but little below thn average.
Prunes are almost a failure in Northern
Lane and Southern Benton counties.
