International matters are assuming a very serious aspect, according to a Herald dispatch from St. Petersburg. One of the most serious bits of news at this moment is th alleged confirmation of the statement that abroad the Japanese vessels of war attacking Port Arthur were a number of American naval officers. This report has caused something akin to a feeling of consternation among the Russian officers. The emperor has issued the strongest orders, continues the dispatch, that no news whatsoever, be communi cated through the headquarters' staff. Further, he is deeply annoyed at the attitude recently adopted by the Russian press of writing upon the political situation in a way calculated to raise enmity toward Russia by England and also very specially, America. For instance, the St. Petersburg Ga1 eette has been prohibited, not as gen-; prally Is supposed for publishing false ! news about the war, but because of an accompanying article declared to have been highly insulting to England, ; The emperor is said to have decid-! id that no details of news are to be given out except upon matter of major importance, that Is to say, of big: engagements. He does not wish that all kinds of small affairs shall be given undue importance. It is definitely stated that Kuropat-1 kin has resigned his position as minister of war and wil be given an appointment as governor of Turkestan.

Possible Action of Germany In Eastern Situation. New York. Feb. 13. Possible action hy Germany is regarded here as a factor in the Far Eastern situation, and is causing apprehension, cables the London correspondent of The Herald., The St. Petersburg correspondent of The Daily Telegraph, already quoted as having cabled that he had information on "unimpeachable authority for stating that if the fortunes of war prove adverse to Russia, a diversion, which may lead to far-reaching results, is confidently expected from Germany," further says: "Already proposals are affirmed to have been made by the chief of that state, which, if accepted, will considerably complicate matters. "The German government will support Russia diplomatically in action taking to bring the alleged evacuation of Wei Hai Wei before the Hague tribunal. REPORT IS DENIED. COMMERCIAL BANK.

Sixteen-Year-Old Youth Shot Bowman 1 to Death. ? Roanoke, Va., Feb. 15. Details of a ; patracide at Boderfield, McDowie i county, W. Va., Sunday were received ; here. j James Bowman, aged 16 years, shot and almost iastantly killed his father while the latter was severely caastis-ing his wife, mother of the lad, in their home. The older Bowman scolded his son and wh:n the boy's mother interfered her husband upbraided her. A general quarrel followed, and Bowman turned his attention to his wife. The boy demanded of his father that he stop whipping his mother. The senior Bowman did not heed the worn-tng and the boy fired on his father with a shotgun, the contents taking effect in the head. Bowman died in a few minutes. The bov went to Welch, and gave himself up to the au thorities. Wonsan and destroyed Hakodate are generally discredited, it being pointed out that it is impossible for the squadron to have been in two places almost simultaneously.
