ARTHUR MOVEMENT OF ALEXIEFF SAID XO INDICATE RUSSIA EXPECTS NEW DANGER NO JAPS SEEN ON YALU RIVER Despatch From St. Petersburg Says , Ice Extends Fourteen Miles From the Shore London, Feb. 16. The Chemulpo correspondent of the Express makes the astonishing statement that Japan has already landed 120,000 troops in Corea, 80,000 of whom are extended along the ngnung rront, south of the Yalu river. Departure of Alexieff London newspapers attach the greatest significance to the departure of Vice, roy Alexieff from Port Arthur and comment upon the sudden throwing of Russian troops Into New Chwang as indicating the Russian apprehension that Port Arthur is in danger and that the Japanese attack may not after all be made where it is expected on the Yalu. All reports tend to confirm the impression that Russia has little or nothing to expect from sea operations. According to a dispatch to the Paris edition of the New York' Herald, 400 torpedoes, two-thirds of Russia's en tire available supply, were destroyed on board the Russian cruiser at Chemulpo. Troops Reach Antung The Tokio correspondent of the Chronicle cables: that, it is stated officially, that several thousand Russian troops have reached Antiing and that it is rumored 20,000 Russians have arrived at Ping Yang, on the Tatong river, in central Corea. The Chronicle, however, regards this rumor as improbable unless the invasion of Corea pre-. ceded the outbreak of hostilities. No Japs Seen St. Petersburg, Feb. 16. A dispatch from Port Arthur, dated Feb. 15, denies the Japanese are landing at Chin Wang Tao, on the southern border of Manchuria. The sea there is covered with ice for a distance of fourteen miles from the shore and this would make a landing extremely difficult No Japanese have been seen on the Yalu river. Japanese are landing provisions and munitions of war at Wansan, on the eastern coast of Corea, north of Seoul. Say Ships Were Disabled London, Feb. 16. In a dispatch dated Port Arthur, Feb. 13, the correspondent of the Times gives a description of seven Russian warships, which he says are lying disabled there. They Include the battleships Sebastopol and Petro-pavlosk, which have not been named In the previous reports of action. The correspondent says that altogether eleven Russian ships were put out of action at Port Arthur. In continuing, he declares the Japanese were driven from the neighborhood of Kinchau, near New Chwang, after a skirmish, in which 150 Japanese were taken prisoners and seventy Russians killed. In an editorial the Times remarks that as this correspondent does not mention the injuries sustained by the battleships and as the Kinchau story has not been reported from any other source, It would be well to accept his reports with some reserve. Ship May be Damaged Tokio, Feb. 16. A report has Just reached here that the Japanese torpedo fleet again attacked the Russian fleet at Port Arthur on Feb. 14, and it is thought one Russian ship was damaged. Fear Reign of Terror New Chwang, Feb. 16. Atrocities are dally perpetrated on foreigners and natives both by the organized police and Incoming troops, which makes it impossible for the civil administrator of New Chwang to control the situation. It is feared a reign of terror will be precipitated If the neutral powers remain inactive, A captain of the police, with 10 soldiers, without any provocation, destroyed the contents of a hotel, owned by a German, where three Japanese had registered under the protection of the civil administrator. These Japanese were bound, stabbed and robbed of food, money and Jewelry. They were rescued with difficulty by the United States consul, Miller, together with three women refugees, all of whom the civil administrator had assured Miller would be protected. The administration admits the gravity of the situation, but declares Viceroy Alexieff alone can remedy It. It Is believed here, however, maintenance of order at this treaty port and the preventing of these violations of International rights ran be Insured only by Instant international proclamation, supported by armed force. Mines have been constructed and preparations made for reporting them athe mouth of the river here, vfhere forts have been occupied by field battery of artillery and guns from the Russian gunboat SvouUcn.

Americans Hold Aloof The Americans present refrained from attending the naval conference, or partaking in the demonstration, although some Russians wounded were received on board the United States gunboat Vicksburg. Wanted British to Fire While the Variag was being sunk, her captain, fearing the Japanese would reach the vessel before she settled down, requested the captain of the British cruiser Tlbot to fire at her water line. This request was also refused. Japs Were Damaged Paris, Feb. 16.

Killed by His Own Trick St. Petersburg, Feb. 16. Captain Stephanoff, who was blown up with torpedo gunboat Yenisei and who himself invented a system for laying submarine mines which is considered responsible for the catastrophe, had caused the Yenisei to be fitted with his device for rapid laying of mines whereby a trolley line extended beyond the vessel's stern along which the mines slid out and dropped into their appointed places. This plan did away with the cumbersome work of laying the mines from the small boats. The accident was due to an excessive strain on the Yenisei's anchor cables while the mines were suspended, pending immersion. The two cables snapped and one collided with another.

SENATE MAKES MORE CHANGES Both Child Labor and Railway Bills are Undergoing Changes HULL-PROUTY CONTEST UP ATTRACTS CONSIDERABLE AT-TENTION OUTSIDE ITS IMMEDIATE FIELD CANDIDATES IN POLK COUNTY Leading Republicans Confer News Notes From the Capital of Iowa BY JULIAN RICHARDS Des Moines. la., Feb. 16. Special. In the senate this afternoon the child labor bill was amended by striking out the provision that children shall not work in mercantile institutions. The house committee on railroads killed the bills requiring the roads to put in undergrade crossings wherever grades permitted if the land owner objected; requiring the roads to put in crossings and cause ways at "such reasonable places as may be 1 designated by the owner;" requiring roads to connect their lines at such places where two or more roads terminated and requiring the roads to maintain equal lights on all switches. The Hull-Prouty Contest The Hull-Prouty contest in Polk county has reached such a stage that It has begun to attract the attention of the outside counties of the district to the fact that possibly Eolk county may not have it all their own way. Owing to the reduction in the republican vote last fall Polk county Is no longer the arbiter of the congressional destiny of the district, although the candidate who secures Polk county has a long lead towards the nomination. Republicans in Conference Last night there was a conference of a number of the leading republicans of this district JheldJn this city ostensibly for the purpose-of considering the question of district delegates but along with this was the discussion of feasibility of the outside counties uniting on a candidate for congress. Among those at the meeting were Judge Nichols, of Adel; Judge Henderson, of In-dianola; Judge Wilkinson, of Winter-set; ex-State Senator Berry, of Indlan-ola; S. M. Leach, of Adel; M. I Curtis, of Knoxville; D. D. McCall, of Perry; E. II. Addison, of Nevada and others. Available Candidates It is reported that the availability of a number of outside candidates was discussed but no decision was arrived at, and it was thought best to defer tak ing any action until the result of the Polk county primaries was known. There are a number of gentlemen In different parts of the district who would be willing to accept the nomination and some of those who were present at the meeetlng last night were inclined to think that Polk county was getting considerably the best of the matter and that it was time the nomination was passed around the district. It is claimed that appointments for offices throughout the district were all made with a view to strengthening the Polk county crowd. It was protested that the conference was not in the interest of either of the Polk county candidates and that nothing may come of it in case either candidate carries Polk county by a comfortable margin. It was finally decided to hold another conference sometime early In March, at which time future action will be decided upon. DeLano Bill Heard The hearing of the DeLnno railroad bill before the house committee of railroads, which was continued from last week, will be taken up tomorrow afternoon, and it is understood that a largo number of shippers will be present to present their side of the case.
