First Bale Arrives
Chickasha Today Grown By
C. S Crouch Near Ireton.
It has arrived that first bale of
cotton. Its coming was unheralded
and there was considerable surprise
when it made its appearance.
C. S. Crouch was the man who
brought it. The cotton was raised
near Ireton on Laflin creek about
eighteen miles east of town. Mr.
Crouch has 40 acres which he
thinks will vield a half bale to the
icre. Mr. Crouch arrived in town
at six o clock this morning and
took his cotton to the Chickasha
Cotton Oil Cos. gin. The gin had
not yet been started up and there
was some delay in firing up and
getting the machinery in motion..
Preparations were made to gin it
Mr. Crouch will receive the pre-

road will undoubtedly be built and
he anticipates no trouble in dispos-
ing of the line to one of the big
companies after it is constructed.
Mr. Kelly was gsthering statis
tics as to the amount of shipping
that is done here and at other
points along the line.
C. M. Cook manager of the
Chickasha Light Heat and Power
Co. closed a contract today with
G. E. Zimmerman for a new brick
building for the electric light

will begin on the new building at

boiler has also been contracted for

will be put in soon. The new com-

town first-class light service.

RUSSIANS IN RETREAT
In Preparation for a Decisive Stand
St. Petersburg Aug. 30 (1:15 a.
m.) Even late t jnight the great
est uncertainty J revails regarding
the actual situation at Liao Yansj
There is intense anxiety for defin
te news from the front but even
the authorities are franklj' ignorant
as to whether or not the lone ex
pected decisive action will be fought
at Liao Yang or further north.
it is possinie mat even now a
great battle is proceeding and there
are many indications that this is
the case. If this is so the fate of
this year's campaign may be set
tled within forty-eight hours.
At the same time opinion is al
most equally divided many be-
lieving that General Kuropatkiu
will not make a determined stand
and the Japanese will crack the
shell only to find the bird has
One of the Russian correspond
ents of the Associated Press savs
that the fighting so far has been
confined wholly to rear guard ac
tions. The Russian force is now-
concentrated in a series of exceed
ingly strong positions around Liao
Yang but the whole withdrawal
was in accordance with pre-arranged
plan. It is certain that the
armies are now in close touch. The
Japanese are advancing in great
force along both of the roads con-
verging on Liao Yang but the cru-
cial question whether it is the
main Russian army that is concen-
trated there to receive them or
merely a strong screen has not been
answered to this date.
Much depends upon the weather.
It is possible that the recent rains
may have made General Kurropat-
kin's withdrawal impossible even
if he desired to withdiaw or that a
further downpour may disarrange
the plans of both sides; but the lat-
est indications that the weather
and the roads are improving should
force a side ot the curtain within
twenty four hours.
Liao Yang Aug. 29. The Rus-
sian forces have retreated to this
place where a stand is expected to
be made. The whole eastern divi-

crossed over to the left flank. The
understanding was that the Rus-
sians would concentrate heavily in
the morning for an attack of the
Japanese in that direction and the
surprise was greater therefore at
the order to retire.
The explanation is given that
the Tenth corps especially Gener

extreme left was confronted by a
greatly superior force of Japanese.

bravely and held all their positions
