ST. PETERSBURG,, Feb. 14. (10:20
a. m.) An official eajblegram received
here from Port Arthur dated February
13, says the lights of the enemy's ships
were seen off Inkau on the evening of
the 11th. It says .further advices
reached Port Arthur February 12 that
six Japanese battleships had appeared
in the roadstead of Tatung King (on
tin estuary of the Yalu river and oppo
site the Corea'n port ofWiju), anil the
booming of cannon had been heard.
Report Not Credited.
London, Feb. 13. The report or igin
atione with a Japanese firm having
correspondents in Tokio was circulated
ip London tonight to the effect that
ibree Russian cruisers, presumably the
Vladivostock squadron, had . be,en tor-K-doed-
in the strains of Tsugaro yes
terday.. The straits of Tsugaro. . are
between the island of Ilokkiado, the
northern end of three Japanese islands
and Nippon, Central llakodat is on the
-northern side of the. strait.
The Japanese legation has heard
nothing confirmatory of this report,
though it has come to it from several
sources. The. legation officials received
the report with reserve, it being con
sidered ""too good to bej true.V
The Japanese have a strong naval
base at Kot&mari, at the northern end
of Nippon, and on the south side of the
utraits, and it is considered . possible,
should the "Vladivofitock squadron at

Editor Statesman: i
Through the kindness of some! one, I
received through the mail a copy of
your Illustrated Annual, which I have
road with much interest. I have long
wanted to move to Oregon, but have
failed so far to . convince ray family
that it . would be best for them. , 1 am
now 71 years old and am comfortably
fixed,-but land has got out of reach of"
my children, and that is why I want
to make the change, and you. seem to
be the proper one to ask for further in
formation in regard to the price of
land, cultivation. I want . te buy an
improved place, say " from 20 to SO
arres; prefer good hop land. Also the
price of wild land that will produce
good crops that grow in your country,
and the general lay of the country and
nature of the soil. ;, ,-;
I tako it for granted that what you
have published in your annual Is
strictly reliable, with no desire to over
- draw the essential facts. : .
I have lived here in this county for
sixty-eight years, and. this has been one
' of I ho coldest winters I have ever ex

i ' Great Britain Jubilant.
f London, Feb. 13. The end of the
first; week of the Russo-Japanese "war
brings intense ' satisfaction in Great
Britain, and the extent of the popular
jubilation finds no adequate expression
in. the London press, which is careful
not to ' offend 'Rucsia. The total,: or
partial disablement of nine Russian
war -vessels in the opening week of the
struggle is generally considered by ex

vutinuiiKj, mesuay, remain on board
the i British eruiser Talbot, the Italian
cruiser Elba and the French eruiser
Pascal. ' The situation is becoming
acute, as the Japanese have twiee
made demands on the commanders of
the three foreign vessels that the Rus
sians be surrendered as prisoners . of
war. The captain of the Talbot, being
the 'senior naval officer, each time re
plied that he was awaiting instructions
from his government. .
A magnificent episode in the battle
was "a seecn'd sortie of the two Russian
cruisers.. With bands playing the
National "anthem, " the international
fleet loudly cheering the bravery and
gallantry of the Russians, the 'Variag
and Korietz faced the Japanese fleet
in what was certain death. The Rus
sian losses was one officer and forty
men killed and 464 wounded.

School Children Patriotic
St. Petersburg, Feb. 13. The war
fever whieh has been aroused all over
European Russia in a single week is re
markable. Such patriotic demonstra
tion as have been witnessed a Ft,
Petersburg since the hostilities began
havebeen all the more astonishing be
cause of the publie indifference, almost
up to the hour when Japan struck the
first blow, but like a 'flash the whole
Empire seemed to have been lashed in
to a fury by defeat and is prepared to
fight to bitter end.,
The demonstrations have been almost
continuous- for three days. Some of
them extraordinary in character. Tor
day school boys numbering thousands
marched bare headed for hours up and
down Xevsky -Prospect, bearing flags,
shouting. and singing patriotic airs.

Short Drive ia Afternoon:
WASHINGTON, Feb. 13. Despite
the critical condition of Senator Hanna
the feeling of despondency which last
night pervaded the sick chamber gave
way to one of restored hope. Along
during the day the attending physi
cians, noting the manner in which the
patient responded to treatment, gave
it as their belief that he had a "fight
ing chance." .
The tension under which the immedi
ate members of the family have been
since 3 o'clock ; yesterday afternoon,
when the" sinlCtng spell came on, was
noticeably relieved tonight, j and the
Senator's brother, his son Dan, and
others of the household, spent some
time in the lobby of the hotel. Indeed,
his condition was such this afternoon,
that Mrs. Hanna was able to take a
short drive. . .

In a fiercely contested and intensely
exciting game the Willamette basket
ball team last night went down to
honorable defeat before the husky
basket throwers from the University
of Washington. From the time the
two teams trotted : out onto 'the field
'until he final whistle biew, the great
est, interest was manifested by tae
large jand enthusiastic audience. Al
though the Wasbingtonians were in the
lead most of the game, it was only by
a very few points,, and "u was any
body's game" up to the last moment.
This is the first time in three vears
that the 'Varsity team has met defeat
on their own floor, and those who went
to the gymnasium last night in the ex
pectation of seeing a good game were
not disappointed in the least. The
teams were evenly matched as to sie,
and about an equal number of fouls
were called on each. The game was
rather rough but not intentionally so,
andjhe best of feeling- prevailed
throughout the game.
The visitors sprung a great surprise
on th4 start by playing, the famous
TomsBte Donald at forward instead lot
his usual place at center. , He was
easily the slar pf the team, and al
though Mltthews, who was pitted
sgaiust him in the first half, played
like a demon, he was no match for
him, permitting I; him to make four
baskets. In the . second half Pollard
was put in at guard against McDonald,
Judd want to center and Matthews to
forwand. By this arrangement the
giant from Seattle was held down to a
single1 basket. Will McDonald, who
played center, was unable to'make a
singlet -field goal, .but succeeded in f se
curing three frojii the foul line. Waller
and Hill each added two points to the
Washington side of the score, in the
first and second halves, respectively. .
Miller scored the most points for the
homo team, making a total .'of three
field goals. Matthews also made two
baskets. Pollard threw four cut of a
possible eight from the foul line. Judd
made i two failures from the fool line.
Had .Willamette been up to her usual
standard in throwing fouls, the score
would have beep different. The boys
admit that for one they met their su
periors and say tbey were fairly beat-eu-Vl!

pair andfiads just as ready marketf for
them. She yesterday shipied a pair to

. Thos. W- Brunk, the prosperous farm
er from 'near Kola, in Polk county, who
has set such a good example in raising
stock of all' kinds, was in the city
Welnesday to make a final settlr ment
in the sale of -a .fine flock of Angora
goats to the firm of Gilbert i; Patter
son,' now known as the Kola Hop A
Stork Company. Mr, Kmnk is one of
the most successful breeders of fine
stock in the. United States, and is con
stantly receiving orders for goats,
sbeep. of hogs many of them for ship?
ment to distant parts of the country.
The day Mr. Br unk was in the city
was very blustery and cold for the Wil
lamette valley, and he expressed his
fdty for", the fmany horses which were
eft by their owners standing on the
streets unprotected from, the wind sad
rsin. Me' said he thought it an out
rage, and that the officers should , put
them In the stable to be fed, and let
the owners pay the cost. .
He reports that the condition, of the
stock over the -country is much better
than last winter, when hundreds of an
imals were allowed to starve for the
lack of attention on the-part of their
owners, allowing them to run, oa , the
Kasture all winter without the least
it of feelf until tbey could seek re
lief in death. He said he wondered
how people's consciences would allow
them, to treat dumb brutes in such a
shameful manner, and aside frpm this,
it was a very expensive habit. 8omc
