At the same time extensive preparations were made to quell any disturbance. 1 he police on the Nee-sky Prospect were sextuplcd and the Dvornlka, or house posters, were msr-abaled In front of their respective buildings. Half a dozen squadrons of mount-ad gendarmes massed In the rear of tha Kaaan cathedral and battalions of rc-aervea were stationed In several coom-yards out of sight.

(Associated Press Report.) Toklo. December 11. 4 p. m. The Japanese continue to batter the Port Arthur fleet and there la little ground for expecting that It wlh ever agjln engage the Japanese. Tho battleship Sevastopol continues to anchor outside, but poss.blv returns to :he harbor at night and nn-Cbors Inside ihe outer boom, which pro-tecta ber from torpedo boats. The recent heavy weather has given a'd(d protection to the vessels. Naval experts aro discarding the Ule . that the Russians themselves Bank any of the ahips. The fact that the vess-ls first showed lists while In exposed positions and the efforts made to r-vj the Sevastopol etc regarded as conclusive evidence against the theory that they trc being sunk by the Russians. A majority of tho sunken warships II headed northward. They received tin bulk of the fire across their port sloes and the fact that at least two of then ahowed lists to starboard Rives rise to the theory that Jnpaneso shells explodel Inside the ships and against the starboard armor, driving the armor ootwud and causing leaks. To make sine of tho destruction of the Russian warships, the Japanese continue to drop shells Into the sunken- hulks. The whereabouts of the torpedo boat destroyers continues doubtful, but It Is thought they are sheltering outside the harbor. The weather - prevents a good observation being made, but the Japanese nre sending a searching fire Into nooks which are not observable from 203-metr hill and other heights. Tha observers report a number of tugs, launchea and email craft anchored noir tha hospital shlpa In the west harbor. In which they evidently have gone tor th purpose of obtaining protection. It la suggested that tha besiegers notify Ueutenant General 8toeasel to separate these vessels from tha hospital ahlps pear by or take the conaequencea. Tha Japaneae are exercising care to avoid hitting tha hospital ships, whioh . frequently are In the dlreot line of fire. Che Too, December 11.

Toaard 1 o'clock tha workmen and students seemed to swarm toward th corner of the Hotel Europe, opposite the Kaxan cathedral. The police, recognising that the critical moment waa approaching, tried In vain to keep back the human tide. Then, when there waa not a single mounted policeman In eight, on the stroke of 1, from the heart of the thickly 'wedged crowd, a blood-red flag, like a Jet of flame, suddenly shot up. It was the signal. Other flags appeared In the rroad, waving frantically overhead; and I hey were greeted with a hoarsi roar "Down with autocracy!" Tha atu-dents surged Into the streets, slngfiig the "Marselllaire," while innocent spectators, seeking to extricate themselves, crowded into doorways and bugged walls. Wsmounted police made a single attempt to force their way Into the crowd, to wrest the flagaTrom the demonstrators, but the students and workmen, armed with sticks, stood close and beat back their assailants. Then, like a flash, from behind the Kassn cathedral came a squadron of gendarmerie. The doors of the adjoining courtyard were thrown back and battalions of police came out A double squadron charged the flank of the demonstrators with drnn sabres. Flv other squadrons circled the mob, Cutting through .th fringe of spectators, who gladly scurried to cover. The main wedge of the demonstrators stood fast only a moment or two. There as a sharp rattle of cutigels and sabiesi though the wounds showed the police struck principally with the flat of their saordx. The women were especially fltrcc in their resUtanc. Many weru struck and trampled and blood streamed down their faces. Horses Ridden Into Crowd. The police urged their horses fiercely Into (he crowd, driving those mho re-slft'd into the courtyards, the Hotel Europe and the Catholic church. The Intense excitement lasted about ten minutes, after which mounted sguails of Kmda' merle patrolled the stre-Ls and the poll, e devoted themselves to keeping the crowil movlnir.

SEVASTOPOL ATTACKED. Met by Torpedo Boats at Mouth of Port Arthur Harbor. (Associated Press Report.) London, December 11. An unofficial report from Port Arthur, according to a Toklo dispatch to the Dally Mall, says that the Japanese torpedo boot destroyers attacked the battleship Sevastopol nt the mouth of the harbor the night of December 9. with whin result Is not known. The Dnlly Telegraphs correspondent before Port Arthur reports, under date of December it, that there were desperate encounters lat mcck. The belligerents, the correspondent adds, mutually reoojt-nlie the Red Cross nnd collect the dead and wounded during temporary suspensions of fighting. Tho Dnlly Telegraph's Tien Tsln correspondent learns from official Japanese sources that the Japanese casualties at Port Arthur the latter part of October wero 3000 killed nnd 10.C00 wounded. The losses in more recent attacks, the correspondent adds, mere mucli heavier. The same correspondent has heard that continual fighting Is proceeding south tf Mukden. The correspondent at Shanghai of the Dally Telegram, in a dispatch dated De-comber 11, suya that, according to Pekhi report, the Russians have retreated, to the south bank of the Hun river after seventy-two hours' fighting with heavy loss. On the fourth day of the fighting the correspondent says the Japanese assumed the offensive. The Mukden station la supposed to be In a wild state of confusion. The Daily Telegraph thinks the authenticity of the foregoing reports from Chinese sources of heavy tlghtinV Is very doubtful. SEARCHLIGHTS USED. .

In which the writer aaya. The optimism with which wa left BU Petersburg la beginning to vanish. Tha government la not shewing a disposition to meet us half way and enter frankly on tha path of reform. On the contrary there seems to be hesitation aa to whether It would 4iot be. better to return to the path of reaction. The government seems unable to comprehend Ira stau of popular feeling, the Initwrt'irtce f f decisive action and the disastrous conaa-quences of procrastination. Tha people of thla province are In a state of great excitement. The regular meetlnga have taken place In many towns and -very specific resolutions have been adopted, bLt thi bad feature of the situation la the attitude of the worklngnicn. Incited by the underground press of Geneva and Paris, who declare thim-sclvcs In complete antagonism to the nioderatu drmanda of tho semstvo, they proclaim a definite socio 'tort orosram. declaring they want not political, but social freedom. It will, therefore, be the policy of trc government If It derides t- concede nothing to us, to foster such dissensions between the xt mstvo and the lalior party.

December 11 The principal event scheduled for the senate during the present week Is the taking of the vote ui the Philippine government bill, which is set for next Friday at 1 o'clock. I'ndir the agreement to vote, the bill remains the unfinished business of the senate until that date, and It will have preference over nil questions in the debate, except after I o'clock each day. Many democratic senators are opposed to the bill, but the best Information obtainable Is that there will be nofenera debate on the Philippines question, aa they consider the passage of the bill a foregone conclusion. They will devote their efforts to securing a modification of some of the provisions which they regard na specially nlmoxlois, giving special attention to the bond and Chinest.-iinnitgralion clauses. After the vote on the Philippines bill on Friday, the senate wilt adjourn until the fsiloKlng Monday, and It la considered doubtful m-heihtr much more business of general Importance, will be then undertaken until after Christmas, as many senators already have a:x unced thtir Intention to leave for home Immediately after the vote on the Philippines measure. It had been the original intention of the sensto to press for an adjournment as early as the luth, but tlu're is now hinnlfcst a disposition to allow the house to have its way in fixing tha date for the Cist, even though the senate remains mechanically In session, as will be the case according to the present outlook. It Is the Intention not to transact much business other than the Philippines legislation during the prevent week. Senator Hepburn on Monday will make an effort to secure consideration of the pure food hill, but If he succeeds in keeping It before the senate it will not ee proceeded with before tho holidays. It Is beltfvcd that the statehgM bill will not be reported from committee befnra -the holidays. The vacancies on the senate committees probably will be filled during the week. Schedule for the House.

Before that I bad refused to aay anything about her or her affairs, because I deemed It my duty to protect ber In the story of her birth aa ahe had given It to me.
