JAPS MAY NOW STARVE THEM OUT ASSAULTS WERE COSTLY bit ACHIEVED PRACTICAL I)E --STRL'CTION OK Rl SSIAN FLEET. (That Is Said lo Have Been the Par pose of the Japanese, Who Wanted to Prevent the Fleet from Joining the Russians* Second Pacific Squadron— Siege Will Be Continu ed, But Assaults Will Not Be Made as Heretofore. Tokio, Dec. 9, Evening—ln disabling Ihe Russian fleet at Port Arthur, pre cluding the possibility of its being able to reinforce the Russian second pacific squadron, the Japanese have accomplished the main object of the desperate assaults against the fortress -which they have been making for the past three months. There is now a strong probability that, while continuing the siege, they will avoid losses of the magnitude, al ready attending their efforts and, in stead of assaulting, will rely on starv ing out the garrison until it is finally captured. HOW JAPANESE FIRE" SEARCHED OUT SHIPS. Report Showing the ElTeet of the Shells* l poll the Vessels*. Tokio, Dec. 9.—Noon.—The following report, dated Dec. 8, 10 p. m., h'as been received from the commander of the naval land batteries in front of Port Arthur: “Eight shells struck the protected cruiser Pallada to-day and set her on fire. Simultaneously she began to list to port, lowering astern. She is deem ed unfit for navigation. ‘•During the action we discovered the gunboat Giliak to the landward, north of the battleship Peresviet and bom barded her. Eleven of our shells were effective. This vessel Is also deemed to be disabled. “The armored cruiser Bayan caught fire at 11:30 o’clock this morning. The fire was not extinguished at 4:15 in the afternoon. Evidently the cruiser Is seriously damaged. The results of our bombardment of the battleship Sevastopol, the mine ship (transport) Amur and the trans ports are not yet known.*’ The above mentioned hits were made with shells from the heavy guns. Those made by the small shells are not men tioned in the report. Another report from the same eom fnander, dated 3 o’clock this (Friday) morning, is as follows: “As the result of our naval gun bombardment yesterday (Thursday) the Bayan was hit six times and the Amur fourteen times. The Amur is sinking astern. “Our cannonade directed against the storehouses and arsenals at the north east base of Paiyu mountain result ed in thirty-six hits, causing great damage.” RUSSIAN S~ABAN D 0 N ED THE SHIPS IN HARBOR. Tokio, Dec. 9, 5 p. m.—Considerable astonishment is expressed here over the fact that the Russians in no way resisted the disabling of the Port Ar thur fleet. In (certain quarters, the opinion is entertained that the Rus sians opened the seacocks of the sub merged vessels so as to lessen their exposure to the Japanese fire. The recent cessation of mine clear ing was taken as evidence that the fleet did not intend to make a sortie. There was no sign of life on the Rus sian ships during the bombardment. Now that the Port Arthur fleet has •been disabled. It is deemed impossible for the Russians to overcome the in feriority of the second Pacific squad ron to Togo's fleet, unless, at present unforeseen, the Black sea fleet should Pass the Dardanelles. ALEXIEFF MAY GO DOWN WITH CLADO. St. Petersburg, Dec. 9.—Capt. Clado Was arrested this evening by direct Order of Grand Duke Alexis. The fact of the arrest and a copy of the order of arrest were promptly pub lished for the purpose of showing the Powers that Russia officially disap proved of the agitation Capt. Clado has raised in favor of forcing the Dardanelles and sending out the Bl’ack sea fleet, as well as an act of resent ment of his criticism of the admiralty. It is rumored to-night that Admiral ■Alexleft, who is generally credited with having bucked Capt. Clado’s. claim, has definitely ruined his prospects thereby and will shortly be relegated to the Caucasus as viceroy. SHIPPING IS WARNED TO KEEP SAFE DISTANCE. Washington, Dec. 9.—Mr. Griseom, the American minister at Tokio, has cabled the State Department that Mr. Fisher, the American vice consul at Nagasaki, reports that all shipping has ■been warned to keep twenty miles away from Pescadores, an island oft the west coast of Formosa, and that It Ik reported that fortifications are be ing constructed at Seoul.

TO BEATTHE WOODMEN Is Alleged to Have Heen the Scheme of Lennox. Plattsburg, N. Y., Dec. 9. —Three rep resentatives of the Woodmen of the World, a fraternal society of Omaha, Neb., and two detectives left here to iright for Cleburne, Tex., with a for mer private soldier who enlisted un der the name of Henry Lennox and who was honorably discharged here on Nov. 12 last. B. Wood r Jewell of Omaha, chairman of the Sovereign Finance Committee of the Woodmen, who was one of the party, admitted that Lennox is not the soldier’s real name. “This man disappeared from his home in Cleburne, Tex., in 1901, under circumstances that led his friends to believe he had been killed,” said Mr. Jewell. “Within the last year a suit was brought by his wife against the Wood men of the World on his certificate of membership in the sum of $2,000. The association employed detectives and located the man. He willingly con sented to return and demonstrate that he is not dead.” Lennox, as he was known here, had a good army record. He was born at New Liberty, Ky„ in 1872, and is said to be of an influential family. Plattsburg, N. Y„ Dec. 9.—According to the authorities, Lennox is believed to be O. C. Hiller, whose home is said to be in Cleburne, Tex. Hiller’s horse and buggy, it is alleged, disappeared over a steep river bank in Texas and he was supposed to have been drowned. Lennox to-night admitted that he had lived in Texas, but was uncommunica tive on other matters. receivers"named for SHIP BUILDING CONCERN. Company That Famished Lumber Was the Petitioner. Philadelphia, Dec. 9.—Receivers were appointed by Judge Davis In Common Pleas Court to-day for the Neafle & Levy Ship and Engine Building Com pany of this city. The receivers were appointed on application of the S. B. Vrooman Company, Limited, of this city, which concern furnished lumber to the ship building company. The re ceivers appointed are John Grange, a retired banker, and Sommers N. Smith, vice president and general manager of the Neafle & Levy Company. The creditors in their application state that the larger part of the com pany’s indebtedness has been incurred in the work done upon vessels under construction, and that as the work is completed, either partially or entirely, upon each vessel, the stipulated con tract price will become payable there on. It was, therefore, made neces sary, the application says, that for the protection of the creditors of the com pany Its operations should not be in terfered with by writs of attachment or other executions. The monetl ex pended on the construction of the at. Louis, which will eventually be return ed to the company when the govern ment pays for the cruiser, is given as the principal cause for the company’s present financial stress. The company will be rehabilitated and continue in business. It Is stated the assets far exceed the liabilities. de¥ds~are"missing. Goldstein Mnrdereil Had $150,000 Worth on Hl Person nt the 'Time.

TO GO ON HER BOND MEANT NOTORIETY SO MRS. CHADWICK’S IN JAIL. HOW HER LAWYERS EXPLAIN HER STAY IN THE TOMBS. It Is Said a $13,000 Rond (or the Wouinu Could Have Been Seenred Had tt Not Been for the Fear ot Notoriety—Mr*. Chadwick Want ed to Go to Cleveland, But Her Lawyers Would Not Consent to That Move, New York, Dec. 9.—After a day full of disagreements with her counsel as to whether she should waive examina tion and go to Cleveland. Mrs. Chad wick finally consented to remain an other night in the Tombs, but ex pressed the hope that she might leave there to-morrow. Mrs. Chadwick had made up her mind to ignore the advice of her local counsel, Messrs. Carpenter and Pow ers, and go to Cleveland to stand trial there, when late in the afternoon she received a telegram from her Cleveland counsel. Judge Albaugh, asking her not to return to Cleveland just yet. This telegram caused her to remain over night. Lawyer Carpenter then notified Mar shal Henkel of her intention, and the marshal and United States Commis sioner Shields announced that they would not remain at their offices after the usual closing hour on her account, as they did last night. Lawyers Carpenter and Powers had a conference after leaving Mrs. Chad wick, and Mr. Carpenter said that nothing further would be done for the night. In regard to what would be done to morrow, Mr. Carpenter was non-com mittal. WiUlug to Take Any Rmidumnn. “Nothing will be done before noon,” continued Mr. Carpenter. “I do not care to say whether we have given up the question of securing bail or not, but if you know anybody who is will ing to go on her bond send him along. We could have obtained bail to-day were it not for the notoriety attached to the case.” Mr. Carpenter declined to discuss the alleged Carnegie notes, or say positively whether Mrs. Chadwick would waive examination to-morrow or not. Neither would he say anything about the report that the alleged se curities of Mrs. Chadwick had been examined and found to be worthless. Mrs. Chadwick spent the greater part of the time from 7 o’clock this morning until 4 this afternoon in the corridor in front of her cell. Here she talked with her lawyers and oth ers who called to see her. including her son, Emil and her nurse. Freda. Most of her visitors remained with her as long as the prison rules would per mit. “Behind These Avrfnl Bara.” Mrs. Chadwick was led to her cell in the Tombs prison by an attendant about 4 o'clock. To the matron, Mrs. Chadwick said: “I am glad I -am not going to Cleveland to-night. I am tired enough to sleep well, I think, even behind these awful bars. It has been an ex tremely trying day, and I am thank ful it is over. I do not care to go through many more such ordeals.” In her cell Mrs. Chadwick ate a hearty supper. She had chopped beef, sprinkled.with grated onion, coffee and oranges. The matron said Mrs. Chadwick showed a marked improvement over her condition in the morning. After eating Mrs. Chadwick lay on her cot and said it was her first peaceful mo ment since 'her troubles in New York began. Warden Flynn of the Tombs was so nervous over the welfare of Mrs. Chad wick and the possibilities of her doing herself bodily harm that to-day he enforced the rule applied only In ex ceptional cases of not allowing her either knife or fork with which to eat. Consequently the lamb chop which she ordered had to be cut for her and she ate it with a spoon. Qnestlnn of Her Sanity. A report was current about the Tombs that a request for the appoint ment of a commission to examine Mrs. Chadwick as to her sanity will be made. Lawyer Powers was asked if there was any trjith in the rumor. “I am not prepared to talk on that point just now," he replied after some hesitation. He was asked again if there was any foundation for such a rumor. He laughed and said: “It would irfake a pretty good de fense in a criminal action, wouldn’t it?” When Mr. Carpenter was asked as to the probability of securing bail, he said: "The situation is exactly the same as it was last night. Men are willing to give the bail, but as in the Patterson case, they fear notoriety.” HER SISTER UNFOLDS MRS. CHADWICK’S HISTORY. Says the Woman Was a Bit Queer When Yunna, San Francisco, Dec. 9.—Mrs. Alice M. York of this city has reiterated her statement that she is the sister of Mrs. Chadwick, despite the latter's repudia tion of the relationship. She said: "My sister, Elizabeth Blgley, now Mrs. Chadwick, was born ne%r London, Canada, about 42 years ago. Her girl hood day* were spent at Eastwood and Woodstock, which was the home of our family. She was not a great reader, and as for having read books on mes merism and the like, that is ull non sense. "There was nothing peculiar about her ag a girl, save that she was a deep thinker. She always seemed absorbed In thought and would sit In silence by the hour. She seemed In a trance, and never would pay attention to any one. She would come out of those thinking spells a* if bewildered. She would never discuss her strange actions nor the many troubles In which she be came Involved. “She never Indicated that she was possessed of any hypnotic power.

"It seems to me that my sister had a mania for doing Just such things that have noiv involved her in this trouble. She did not need money, as she had plenty of it. After that affair in To ledo, when she was released from prison, she came to live with me at my home.'* FACE VALUE $5*000.000; ACTUAL VALUE NIL. Such Wan the iMselnniire ot the Chadwick “Securities.” Cleveland, 0.. Dec. 9.—'According to a story published here to-day. the package of securities belonging to Mrs. Chadwick and in the possession of Irl Reynolds, supposed to contain $3,000,- 000 worth of collateral, was opened to day. It is declared that while the face value of the securities was $5,000,000, the actual value is not 1 cent. It is also stated that this package was in a safe deposit vault in Jersey City until yesterday, when it was tak en out and brought to this city by Iri Reynolds. Mr. Reynolds refuses to either deny or confirm this report. DIPHTHERIA GERM THE ANTITOXINE. Believe* He Known How to Trent’ Spinal Men ins it in. Hartford. Conn., Dec. 9.—A solution of the method of treating cases of cero bro-spinal meningitis, commonly known as spotted fever, which, should it prove successful, will be a great aid to the medical profession, is an nounced by Dr. Arthur J. Wolff, bac teriologist of the Hartford Board of Health. Dr. Wolff believes that the anti-tox ine of spotted fever is found in the diphtheria germ. When the epidemic of spotted fever was at its hight in this city Dr. Wolff, assisted by Dr. Allen H. Williams, began experiments with pure cultures obtained by punc tures made in the spinal canal, and all these lymphs' so obtained were found to contain the typical germ which is the canty of the disease. He reached the conclusion that the diph theria bacillus imgy be the much want ed antl-toxine inf the following man ner: First, at the time when spotted fever was at its hight diphtheria died out. There was not a case reported while spotted fever was at its hight. Second, microscopic examination of the germ taken from the spinal canal of the victims of ccrebro-spinal menin gitis showed hardly a trace of the diph theria germ. In some cases there was no trace at all, which is wholly un usual. Before experiments to ascertain the truth of Dr. Wolff's theory could be attempted the epidemic of spotted fev er died out. TRIAL OF NAN PATTERSON. \Vltne**PH Who Were Examined nt the Mistrial are Heard. New York, Dec. 9.—The testimony of the several witnesses who were to day examined at the trial of Nan Patterson for the murder of Caesar Young, in the criminal branch of the Supreme Court, was substantially the same as that given by the same per sons at the mistrial. Frederick Michaels, the driver of the, cab in which Young was shot, repeat ed his account of what occurred dur ing the ride that ended in Young's death. Police Captain Dennis Sweeney iden tified the pistol and said that after the, shooting Miss Patterson told him she was looking out of the cab win dow at the time the shot was fired, that she heard a muffled report and then Young fell across her lap. Policemen Coe and Junior repeated their statements regarding what oc curred between the time the shot was fired and the arrest of Miss Patter son, and Norman L. Coe a photog rapher, identified photographs of the cab and the scene of the shooting. Daniel O’Reilly, one of Miss Pat terson’s counsel, was called to the witness stand by the prosecution. He said that he had been introduced to a man who bore the name of J. Mor gan Smith and that he also knew Julia Smith and the defendant’s fath er. Court adjourned until Monday.

Now That Elections are Over Roose velt Nays He Wnnts No Federal OfHre Holders DisplnyinK Perni cious Activity In Politics—Fl rst Nliot la Taken nt tlic Poatmnstera, Hut Other Office lloldera May Have to Get Off Committees. By R. M. Lamer. Washington, D. C., Dec. 9.—There Is consternation among federal officials who are members of state committees over an order issued to-day by Post master General Wynne, at the in stance of the President. Now that the elections are over an<J pernicious ac tivity Is practically over the President announces that he is opposed to fed eral officeholders retaining political positions on state and other commit tees and remaining active in partisan politics. The issue was made on postmasters In Virginia at Fredericksburg, Peters burg and two other places. They were JnJformed that it was against the policy of the President and the Post office Department for postmasters to take activo part In politics, and it is understood that they have sent in their resignations to the State Com mittee, preferring to do this rather than lose their*positions. This leaves only one federal office holder on the Republican State Com mittee of Virginia, Park Agnew, chair man of the committee and Internal revenue collector of the Second Vir ginia district, which has headquarter* at Alexandria. It Is understood that he will not give up his position as chairman, although there Is a demand from the Slemp faction that Agnew be forced to resign. Agnew's friend* declare that he would resign his col lectorshlp before he would give up hi* position as chairman of the State Committee. The Postoffice Department has given postmasters everywhere to understand that the President will be rigid in the enforcement of his policy against ac tive participation In partisan politics by federal office holder*. It remains to he seen how the Pres ident's order will effect Judson Lyons, John O. Capers, South Carolina's rep resentative -on the same committee. II is probable that If the President Insist* In carrying out this reform in the federal service, the offender* will hold on to their government Job* and relinquish their polities! honors, a* did the Virginia postmasters above men tioned .

Dec. 9.—The most heinous murder committed in this vi cinity in years was revealed this aft ernoon 4n the discovery of the dead and charred body of 'Melton Wright, a negro, 90 years old, concealed behind a pile of burning pine logs with his head, arms and legs already burned away. The discovery was made by a negro woman visiting at Wright's house on a plantation four miles south of Amer lcus.

She shot her aged husband as he lay In bed and afterwards dragged the corpse away and burned It In an effort to conceal the crime. The woman’s statement was that she had been drinking recent ly and whisky may have caused the murder, although a white tramp has been living with the couple recently for whom the woman conceived a ten derness.
