from Port Arthur, dated October 21,

"The Japanese shells are inflictiug
great damage to the Kussian lleet and
fortifications. The arsenal. with its
contents is destroyed. Preparations
are being made for the last death
struggle. Provisions are scarce, the
soldiers are eating horse llesh. Gen-
eral SlmonotT would surrender, it is
said, but is overruled by General
Stoessel who has installed the garri
son with the spirit that to court a
glorious death is preferable to capit-
ulation. Certain troops have to be
closely watched for fear of desertion
or treachery. The bombardment of
the Japanese at times is so incessant
tnat it is impossible to bury the dead
to any depth. The hygienic condi
tions are becoming desperate. Over
half of the original garrison is dead
wounded or sick.
"The besiegers are pressing closer
daily and it is hard to say how long
we can hold out. When the end comes
there will be a desperate light and a
surprise. Thousands of the enemy
will perish as everything is mined.

St. Paul, Oct. 27 —Private advices
from a source in Wall Street which is
generally posessed of reliable secret
information are to the effect that the
settlement of the Northern Securities
case has already been effected. The
statement from New \ ork is:
"The securities dealwas put through
tinally just before James J. Hill's de-
parture for St. Paul after his recent
visit in New York. The substantial
lines of settlement were marked out
and are definitely agreed to by the va-

crowd to this city that ha- been here,
for years. They saw a brilliant spec-

performance that was surpassing in
its merits and which possessed many
uniquely excellent features.
The Sells & Downs Show is run on
business principles, anp does not dis-
appoint the people. Within a few
minutes after 10:30 the parade made
its app -arance, and there was a rush
for points of vantage to get a good
view of the riders, th* bands, the
clowns aud the animals. The parade
was all that could have been expected
and drew forth many exclamations of
interest, amusement and admiration.
Several good bands made the air j
melodious. Claiming special attention j
were a dozen lady riders, very hand- j
somely costumed in white satin and
bloomers, and riding astride. Carrie
Nation with her hatchet brought forth
peals of merriment and shouts of" You

Mukden, Oct. 27, 10:15 p. ra.—News
has just been received here that the
Japanese yesterday assumed the offen-
sive on the east front and made a
slight advance. It is rumored that
the Japanese have taken all the Itus-
sian positions at Erdagou, between
Huansian and Findiapu. on the road
from Mukden to Bentsiaputze.
There was a reconnaissance in force
last night by the Hussian western
Hank, and desultory tiring continued
until 2 o'clock a. m. The Japanese
were discovered to be hurriedly forti- |
tying along the whole line, but this j
does not, of course, preclude tie pos- j
sibility of an attack by them.
This morning occasional shots were
heard on the western front.
The whole army is delighted with
the appointment of Get}. Kuropatkiu 1
as commander-in-chief of the land
forces in the far east. The one idea
among the men is to advance. There
is every indication that when the next
