Russia s New Base of Operations.
Newchwang, Feb, 25.—The city of
Harbin, which Russia ha* decided to
make the center of her military con-
centration, Is located on the Sungari
river, at the point where the Man-
churian branch of the Siberian rail-
way crosses the stream, and where
the Chinese Eastern branch starts
south to Port Arthur and Dalny. It
Is about three hundred and fifty miles
west of Viadlvcmtock and six hundred
miles north of Port Arthur. Its loca-
tion is the geographical center of
Manchuria and as a base for military
operations it is admirably situated.
The city is surrounded on ail sides
for hundreds of miles with rich and
productive agricultural country, pro-
ducing corn, tvheat, oats, barley, to-
bacco, vegetables and some fruit*.
Minerals and timber and great areas
of grazing lands also surround it.
At present the place consists of the
old town, three miles from the cen-
tral depot: Preston or the river town,
the present commercial center, and
the administration town, In close
proximity to the railway station. Be-
fore the railway engineers established
this as their headquarters there was
no native town In the vicinity, and
the entire place is therefore a Rus-
sian product. The city has been cre-
ated by the Russian government, un-
der the management of the Manchu-
rian Railway company. The land for
many miles in each direction has been
secured so as to make It impossible
for any foreign influence to secure a
profit or foothold close to the etty,
and foreigners have been recognized
as having no rights whatever. The
normal population of the city con-
sists of 00,000 Russians, exclusive of
The Sungari river is navigable wuh
light draught steamers and native
craft for nearly the hundred miles
above the city. From Harbin to the
Amcor river, during the navigaton
season, which will begin iri about four
or five weeks apd continue to the
first of November, good-sized steam-
ers run daily.
The city was started primarily as a
military center and an administration
town, for the government and direc-
tion of railway affairs, its growth
into a splendid commercial and manu-
facturing city was not originally pro-
vided for by the promoters, and it
was somewhat of a surprise to them,
but, once started, tho government
used every system of promotion and
protection that could be devised to
encourage its growth along these
lines. Numbered among the city’s in-
dustries are flour mills, several of
which are> equipped with modern
American machinery, meat packing
plants, sawmills and brickmaklng

as significant. Therefore, the depart-

PACIFIC LOSES A FLEET.
New York. Fob”25.-0. H. Hlgbie,
for some years Pacific coast manager
of the American and Red Star lines
of steamers, has been called to New
York to become manager here. The
American line will also bring to this
port its Pacific coast steamships.
They are the Indiana. Pennsylvania,
Ohio and Conemaugh. The Indiana
has arrived with the largest cargo
of sal mon ever brought from the Pa-
cific ebast, having 7,000 tons on board.
The Pennsylvania and Conemaugh
are op/thelr way now. The Ohio is
Icing overhauled at Seattle. Mr.
Higble will occupy a position subordi-
nate to that of Clement A. Griscom.
Jr., who will retain his yost as di-
rector of the lines. Mr. Htgble's spe-
cial work will be the insurance of
the line. In which branch he has had
long experience, The vessels of the
Pacific fleet will enter the North At-
lantic service, possibly the projected
tion: and Rear Admiral'Baker, in
command of the north Atlantic fleet.
It Is announced officially that the
cruise is without political significance
and in order that this may appear
abroad the United States has asked
Portugal, France and Austria-Hungary
If It will be entirely agreeable to
those governments to have our big
fleet concentrated first at Lisbon, then
at Vlllefranche, and finally at Trieste.
The cruise is said to be a practice one
and intended to give the fleet the ex-
perience of a long sea voyage and in
foreign waters. This will be a sub-
stitute for the usual summer maneu-
vers along our coast.
Rear Admiral Barker now has the
battleship squadron, Including the
Kearsarge, Alabama, Illinois, Massa-
chusetts, Maine and Missouri at Guan-
tanamo. Early next month the regu-
lar target practice will be hold at
Pensacola. At that time the Massa-
chusetts will be detached from the
squadron and the lotva will take its
place as soon as the now eight-inch
guns are properly fitted.
The cruisers to go to Europe will
include the Pensncola, Olympia, Balti-
more and Cleveland, and cither the
Denver or Des Moines. Rear Admiral
Barker, as commander-in-chief, will
fly his pennant from tho Kearsarge
and Rear Admiral Coghlan will retain
the Olympia as his flagship until he
gives up command of the cruiser
squadron to Rear Admiral Jewell.
According to the present program,
which has not received the final ap-
proval of Secretary Moody, the bat-
tleships and cruisers will cross the
ocean in separate squadrons and will
unite at Lisbon. It is hoped that from
three to four weeks will be spent at
that port and the same amount of
time at Vlllefranche and Thieste.
The big fleet will be away prac-
tically all spring and all summer and
probably will not get back to this
country much before August.
While it is explicitly stated the war
between Russia and Japan has had
nothing to do with the dispatch ol
this big fleet, it Is a curious coincl
dence that "Fighting Bob” Evans
with a nice little assortment of bat
tleshlps and cruisers, should be con
venlentiy located In Chinese waters
while Rear Admiral Barker, a mem
her of the board of strategy during
the Spanish war, and who relieved
Dewey at Manila, should be sent east
ward across the Atlantic with tho big
gest collection of battleships ever
dispatched from the United States.
Probably these two fleets were not
ordered away on account of the war,
but they would come In liar.dy if there
was a disturbance either in Europe
or In Asia.

I will pay *100 reward if the Herald
can produce a man who can prove
that he lost one cent In a poker game
or any other game in my Bellevue
saloon on Utah street Wednesday
(Signed) G. G. KINNAN,
Manager of Bellevue Saloon.
Yesterday afternoon the Evening
Herald published a story which pur-
ported to be a true story of the bunco-
ing of a young man in the Bellevue
saloon on Utah street. The article
states that a young man who was In
El Paso from New Orleans was stand-
ing in a saloon on a main street when
he was approached by a stranger who,
after engaging him In conversation,
proposed a walk and the walk wound
up at the Bellevue saloon on Utah
street, where a poker game was in
progress and after a time the New
Orleans young man's new found friend
sat in the game. Finally after some
persuasion the young man himself
was prevailed upon to sit in the game.
It goes on to say that after a while
tho young man awoke to the realiza-
tion that he had been buncoed and
demanded back a part of the *65
aging the saloon, had for some time
previous to his taking charge of it
been connected with the Trimble
Transfer company of El Paso and has
always borne an excellent reputation
so far as can be learned. As the
story is investigated more fully It be-
comes more evident that there is no
foundation for the whole thing and
only shows where the El Paso Herald
gets its bunco and official corruption
stuff—put of an overworked imagina-
tion. That a man who was not posi-
tive that it could not be shown,
should offer a reward like the one
which the management of the saloon
offers is beyond possibility and no
one who will give the story a sober
second thought will put any depend-
ence into it
