STILL STEADILY SKIRMISH
Gunshu Pass, June 2C.—Many dis-
patches reaching here through the
official paper, which is edited for the
army, make conditions under which
the proposed peace is to be reached
very Indifferently - understood. In
consequence of the events at Wash-
ington, a military initiative for an
armistice had been expected, but al-
though Generals Linevitch and Kuro-
patkin express the conviction that
Russia is drifting toward peace, no
action looking to an armistice has
yet been taken. On the contrary, the
commanders appear to regret that at
a time when the army has reached
its maximum strength it is likely to
be deprived of victory.
Numerous small bodies of Japan-
ese scouts have appeared in the re-
gions of either Russian flank, and it
is feared that they were intended to
screen the turning operations of the
Japanese, as before the battle of
Chinese report that flanking move-
ments have been already taken, but
the Russian staff denies this. Traders
coming from Bedoun say that the
Japanese are advancing In that di-
rection from Sinmintln.
Russian* Put to Plight
by the Japanese.
St. Petersburg, June 20—Two tel-
egrams received today by Emperor
Nicholas from Lieutenant General
Linevitch are dated June 24 and
June 25, respectively, and refer to
movements of June 21 to June 22.
On the latter date the Japanese at-
tempt to dislodge the Russian oub
posts in the valley of Kao was re-
pulsed, while the Russians in the
Hallunbchen district dislodged the
. Japanese outposts at Nanshancheng
and advanced southward of that
The Russians operating in the di-
rection of tJfanglu retired after un-
masking a considerable force of Jap-
anese. The latter pursued the Rus-
sians agd occupied Yolangtzu in the
Haiiunc'aen district. Tire Japanese
resumed the offensive in the neigh-
borhood of Shimlaotse. continuing a
frontal attack and making an ener-
getic turning movement. The latter
threatened to cut off the Russians,
who consequently retired.
Are Tentatively Announced.
Washington, June 2C.—Russia has
given reassurance of its intentions In
the peace negotiations by placing the
president in possession of the tenta-
tive selection of her plenipotentiaries,
M. Nelidoff, the Russian ambassador
at Paris, and Baron Rosen, the newly
appointed Russian ambassador at
Washington. Russia thug having tak-
en the initiative, it is believed Mr.
TakaMra the Japanese minister, dur-
ing his call at the White House today,
informally told the president that
Japan's selections, also tentative, were
Baron Komura, the Japanese minister
for foreign affairs, and Kogoro Taka-
hlra, the Japanese minister at Wash-
The official announcement of the
names of the plenipotentiaries Is with-
held for several reasons. M. Nelidoff’s
fuealth maj’ not permit him to make
the trip, and the pressure of official
work may necessitate the presence in
Tokio of Baron Koqpura. Mr. Taka-
hira and Baron Rosen are regarded as
certainties, and the belief is that un-
less something unforeseen should oc-
cur both Russia and Japan will con-
sent to the official announcement of
the personnel of the Washington con-
ference within a few days. In any
event both mtsslons will consist of
many advisers, including army and
possibly naval officers and officials
1rom foreign offices in Tokio and St.
Petersburg. It if expected that alto-
gether each mission may number ten
or twelve. Should six plenipoten-
tiaries be chosen, both Russia and
Japan have names under consideration
which will enable them to announce
their third plenipotentiary without
In recognition of his services dur-
ing th<S preliminary negotiations and
in view of his official rank, t ia be-
lieved that the official announcement
of Mr. Takahiras appointment will
be followed by his elevation to the
rank of ambassador. In view of the
. fact that Japan intends, when the
war is over, to elevate her legations
at Washington, London, Berlin.

Rome to embassies, it* is believed
that Mr. Takahiras elevation would
Rains May Serve the
Purpoee of an Armistice.
The Interest regarding an arml*-
tice has largelr diminished in the
last few days because of the receipt
of information that the rainy aeason
Is beginning In Manchuria It is be-
lieved that this will serve the pur-
poses of an armistice In preventng
a clash before the convening of the
conference Moreover, the Informal
soundings initiated by the president
at Tokio and St. Petersburg djd not
yield much hope for successful nego-
tiations looking to an armistice un-
til after the plenlpotentlariM met.
If Japan is then convinced of the
serious dekire of. Russia for peace

St. Petersburg, June 26.—Hostilities
in Manchuria have apparently not
reached a stage of general engage-
ment. Dispatches from fiCnh com-

back and forth over practically the
same ground, with no decided advant-
age to either.

Newbury, N. H., June 26.—The con-
dition of Secretary of State John Hay,
who ig confined to bis bed at his sum-
mer home near Lake Sima pee, by an
attack of uraemia, was regarded as
favorable tonight by his physicians.
After a few days of rest it is expect-
ed that the secretary will be able to
leave his room.
An operation was considered at one
time but the physicians, after a care-
ful examination and consultation, de-
cided it would not be necessary. The
attack was due to a chill caught on
the journey from Washington and Is
similar to one Mr. Hay had four years

considered that there is no need of
further anxiety. Secretary Hay ar-

ing and President Harding delivers

gram covers two days and Is largely

Tbe opinion is of far-reaching im-
portance. Heretofore, congress has
been regarded as the only body bar-

The decision is of great interest
ail over the country for the reason

of dams and there are dozens of
companies organized for the purpose
of building dams fpr no other pur-
pose than to develop water power.

BAD MAN WITH EMPTY GUN.
Former Cowboy on a Spree; Deputy
Sheriff Kill* Him.
Hot Sulphur Springs. Col, June 24.
—General belief here tonight is that
the coroner will exonerate Deputy
Sheriff Charles Gibbs for the killing
of T. H. Wolverton Iasi night. Wolver-
ton, who was on a protracted spree,
stole a gun from an acquaintance and
then wem to a vacant, iot, where he
shot off all the cartridges. Having
disposed of every bit of ammunition
that he had, Wolverton came back to
town and paraded up and down the
streets, sticking the empty gun Into
the face of every person he met, at
the same time making dire threats.
Deputy Sheriff Gibbg was sum-
moned, and warned Wolverton to de-
sist, but Wolverton pointed the gun at
Gibbs, and the deputy sheriff shot him
through the hand. Wiih drunken per-
tinacity, however, Wolverton picked
up the gun, which had fallen from his
wounded hand, and with his loft hand
covered the deputy, who then shot
Wolverton through the heart. No one
knew until after Wolverton was dead
that the gun was empty.
Wolverton was formerly a clerk In
the county treasurer’s office, but had
been a cowboy, ana was playing the
role of bad man whkn he was killed.

Gloomy Days for the
Government of Russia.
St. Petersburg, Juno 26.—These
are gloomy days for the government
of Russia. Every new dispatch ac-
centuates the seriousness of Ihe sit-
uation in Poland and the Caucasus,
where a state of almost, open war
exists, and reports of strikes, demon-
strations and agrarian disorders are
pouring in from many narts of Rus-
sia proper, as if the volleys fired at
Lodz had been the signal for an out-
break of genera! disorders like those
following tbe events of January 22,
Up to the present 8t. Petersburg
and Moscow have not been affected,
but if mobilization is to be attempt-
ed In two capitals, as reported, a re-
crudescence of the former tumults is
likely to occur.
Another danger spot Is Georgia
(Russian Trans Oaucgsta), the war-
like inhabitants of which are deeply
incensed over the affront offered to
their clergymen, seventy of whom,
while meeting to discuss the ques-
tion of church and state, were at-
tacked by Cossacks, who dispersed
tbe preachers with knouts. The
priests In their protest against this
action laid their country under an
Interdict like that, pronounced in the
middle ages, by refusing to solem-
nize baptisms, marlages and other
rites of the church until redress
should be given by the whole ortho-
dox church, of which the Georgian
church is a part. There is much dis-
cussion of the Incident, and the beat-
ing of the priests has caused wide
The situation offers a crucial test
of the ability of General Trepoff and
tbe new police minister is on trial
before Russia to justify his selection
for so responsible a position.

sudden ami the more unexpected,
coming on the heels of the good Im-
pression produced by the emperor's

promise to consider their grievances
and to give the country a national
assembly as rapidly as possible.
A dispatch from Erlvan reports a

victims of the rioting at Lodz and so
far as these cities are concerned the
situation almost approaches the dig-
nity of open rebellion.

meager on account of the vigorous
