Japanese Have   Advanced and After All

Miilidon, Oct. 27.—Fighting began
at 111 o'clock list evening southeast
of Mukilen. The Japanese bai'c advanced to thc village ol Jcrdagau,
which tlicy arc reported to have captured after a fight lasting until this
morning.
There was an artillery light on tbe
night ol Oct. 2(1, ,' north shore
of the Shakhe river, directly south
of Mukden. Tbe cannonading was
continued today. The Russians are
attacking the Japanese, if unsuccessful they will tight right up to the
walls ol Miilden.
I.N  KOREA.
New York, Oct. 27.-A Seoul, Korea despatch to the HeraW dated
(Jet. 2,1, says: "An additional brigade is expected to arrive Ins* tomorrow increasing tbe local Japanese garrison. From a reliable source
I learn that the Japanese garrison
throughout Korea are to lie increased to a total ol 20,(1(111 men.     That
number is considered necessary for
the preservation of quietness in the
provinces during tlie coming winter,

usually causing unrest and depredation. The Korean crown princess in

The Japanese outposts in eastern
Korea are gradually pushing northward, meeting little opposition from
the Russian scouts, with whom frequent but unimportant brushes occur, which are followed by the retirement of thc Russians to positions a few miles distant.
i'he Japanese forces in eastern Korea are insufficient to drive the Russians north if determined opposition
were encountered, but apparently
none will be offered south ot the Rus-
siau base at Song Chin.
I'HE HARRISES
MARRY AGAIN
Divorced  Husband and Wife
Reunited By Wreck of
C a'lam
William J. Harris, once a semiinil-
lionaire as a rclailt of the Le Rol
sale, nnd well known in Ilritish Columbia, was remarried to his divorced wile, illrs. Carrie Harris, in St.
Louis lust week, r-'.iys (he S''n .no
Si'.oki'siiian-Rcv-'rr v
The reunion is a direct outcome of
the Clallam tragedy, near Vcitoria,
11. ('., about a year ago, when their
daughter, Miss Louise, was drowned.
Prior to their divorce Ihree years
ago the two reached all agreement
for a division of property. From her
proceeds Mrs. Harris built the Victoria hotel, at Mill street und First
avenue, worth $12'i,noo, and she owns
the Aberdeen hotel, at First avenue
and Stevens street, worth perhaps
$10,01111. She has other property over
town, and it lias increased greatly in
vnluc under her careful management.
"I'was different with Air. Harris.
He is a pretty good single handed
spender himself, and when he has
when be has money he doesn't mind
putting it iu circulation. After the
big cleanup in Le Roi he branched
out into other mining.ventures, and
he lost his fortune baud over fist.
He, has some mining Interests in Jos- j
cphine county. Oregon, mid a fine I
stock ranch near town, but the bulk
ol bis wealth is gone. |
Somewhat more than a year ago
Mr. Harris decided that the division
ol his property with Mrs. Harris
when they were divorced was illegal,
and Immoral and wicked. He brought
suit to have it set aside, and ihe planned a new polluted In which he
would put his Josephine county mining stock, and bis ranch and bis other holdings, while Mrs. Harris should
put in her Victoria hotel and her
town lots. Then the court was lo
make a new distribution from their
common pile. The case was in court
for some time.
Since the tragic death of Miss
Louise, sorrow has brought the parents together aud their former difficulties have been forgotten. Mr. Harris has been the kindest nf men, devoting bis time do making: Mir Harris happier, and his courtly attentions have been so noticeable that
friends have been gossiping (or i
months that there would lie a reconciliation. I
Several days ago Mrs. Harris lelt.
for St. Louis, eu route to Europe.
About the same lime Mr. Harris departed, ostensibly to Idaho on mining business. They met In St. 4<niis
ami last week their friends were Immensely pleased to get telegrams
from them announcing their remarriage.   It is expeoted that tlicy will
make the trip to Europe together,
returning to Spokane, will settle
down    and make their home there.

agent in Ladi|>niilh, by tbe way, is
Mr. B. Forcimmer, states that his
firm's business in Nanaimo, Ladysinith and Victoria, lias lieen very
prosperous of late and the outlook
for trade tor the holiday season is
good. Sir. Fletcher is a firm fielicv-
e'r in the power of printers ink, and

Mrs. B. Weinrobc returned home
yesterday from Vancouver, where she
was in attendance upon the burial
ol Mrs. A. Robertson, for many
years a friend and neighbor. Mrs.
Robertson dying unexpectedly, while
her husband was in the East, the
burial was.delayed for nearly a week
awaiting his arrival home from Ottawa.

London, Oct. 27.—1.11 p.m.—While
no time limit for the receipt of Russia's reply has been fixed, it is generally believed today that llie route
of the Russian siliadron past Gibraltar will be barred by the Channel
squadron, commanded by Vice Ad-
niital Lord Charles Bcreslord. At 3
o'clock this afternoon, Lord Lansdowne expressed his belicl that a
peaceful settlement would he arrived

New York, Oct. 27.—A long cablegram to the Herald from London,
dated today, on the Anglo-Russian
crisis, says'    "Until late last night
.clerks at the Foreign Office and the
Admiralty    werc very busy working
I at high pressure, only usual in times
' of crisis. The first Lord of the Admiralty gave officials special instructions to send witli all haste, to him-
I self and the various heads of Departments, immediately on receipt
of certain telegrams from the continent, ■ A'bout a dozen of the chief
experts at the Foreign Olllce, remain

definite news, 'i'he Admiralty was
in communication with Portsmouth,
Chatham and Dcvonport during thc
evening and special instructions were
given to thcTesidc.nl clerks to remain ou duty throughout the night.
Half a dozen cabinet ministers were
, within culling, a most unusual thing
before the commencement of the annual series of November cabinets.
The government lias not consulted
other powers with regard to any
concerted action. Significant orders
werc received at Portsmouth yesterday, however, with the result that
overtime is being ordered on board
the battleship Triumph, a new battleship purchased not long since from
the Chilian government which was
damaged recently in a collision. Tlie
Triumph is one of the most powerful units of tlie home (leet and it is
'evidently the intention ofthe Admiralty to bring that squadron to its
full strength af the earliest possible
moment, Orders have also been
given lor the    Good Hope and    the
I Drake ol the cruiser squadron, to lie
got ready for sea again,as quickly as
'possible.    Tile only two vessels   at-

OrSTIR FIRMS 1INE THE
Ladysmith Has Supply Along
Waterfront of Desirable
Shell-fish
And Shipments Are Made By
the Owners Tuing
Season
A Ladysmith industry of which
very little is known, even by many
people living in the city, is tlie cultivation and shipment of oysters.
Along the water front there are at
least 150 acres of oyster beds, not
the big fellow that needs two bites
to surround when you pick him up
from the half shell, but the smaller
native, peculiar to the Pacific Coast
These water farms are leased - from
the Dominion government, the names
of those engaged in the business in
this harbor being John Brenton, the
pioneer in oyster culture in this section, David Page, David Thomas,
Joseph Ferguson and Richards Brothers. The business is quite a lucrative one. the united capacity of
the beds being something like 40
sacks and the shipments are made
weekly through the season to the
city markets. Thc season lasts from
September to May, the other months
being spawning time for the bivalves.
Some attempt!* have been made to
propagate the Eastern oyster here,
hut without much success, although
Mr. Brenton has a few which were
planted as long as twelve years ago.
It has been noted however, at the
various places on this coast at which
Eastern oysters have been planted,
that while the oysters themselves
grow in size, they never increase in
number,
On the Sound and in parts of
.British Columbia attention is being
'paid to the growing of Eastern oys.

ones being plaoted and taken up
when they have attained a good size.

in i.Ladysmith harbor it is found that
the star fish is a difficulty in the way

HELPING THE
HOME TRADE
It is a very good sign for Laily-
smith's (c'osjicrity that JWiHi-f
merchants are complaining that they
do not receive anything like the amount of Iradc from this section that
they did a few months ago. It shows
conclusively that as the town advances the merchants are not behind
in slocks and lair prices, and if a
merchant wants to do business with
Ladysmitli wage earners, he must
sell at reasonable rates, and be a
resident. This is certainly as it
should he, for nearly every wage earner bus property of some kind here,
and thc propscrity oi the city means
values for properties of all kinds. It
is only 'right and reasonable that pen,
pie should patronize home institutions.
NOMINATED
AT NANAIMO
Three  Candidates   For This
Constituency Now Officially in Field
explanation of thc trawler incident is
fully as sensational as the news of
the firing upon the fishing fleet which
set all Britain allame. He declares
he was attacked in the darkness by
two torpedo boats, which came upon
tlie squadron from the direction of
the fishing fleet. He opened-fire and
belibves he sank one of the torpedo
boats, thc other making off for cover
among the fishermen. So soon as he
noticed the fishermen he ceased fire
He proceeded on his way without
leaving any vessel behind and says
he believes the vessel which the fishermen reported remained on the
scene for six hours without offering
succor to the drowning men, was the
other torpedo boat, either waiting
for her consort or repairing damage
indicted by the fire of his ships.
In concluding his telegram, Admiral Rojestvensky expressed in the
most warm hearted way the regrets
of the whole squadron to thc fishermen who bad suffered and to the families of thc victims. RojestivensKy's
report was telegraphed from Vigo direct to the Emperor, who received it
late, last last night. It was communicated this morning to Ambassador Hardlnge bu Foreign Milliliter
Lamsdorh" himself. There is reason
to believe that the British Embassy
was also acquainted with informa-
' tion wli cli reached the Russian authorities some time ago of the arrival at and .subsequent mysterious
disappearance from Hull of twenty
Japanese, mention of which was
made in these despatches on October
23. It is painted out that the original version ol the incident as re-
citod by the captain of thc trawler
Moulinen, Coincides closely with Ro-
jestvensky's. The captain said Hint
while the squadron was passing he
suddenly nol iced two torpedo boats
which approached so near that he
thought they intended boardlnj him,
when they sheared off, heading buck
for Ihc squadron. Almost iiur.'ndiu'
Icly afterwards Ihe squadron opened
lire. According to one account of
Uojcstvensky's report it specifically
states that there were no torncdo
boats with Ihe squadron when ihe
incident occurred. II this is true,

Moiilmoin would completely corrob-

that there is .another side to the fishermen's story, and that the situation

Sweden, Irom Hull, England, as being very important in indicating that
A DEADLOCK,
the Russians had previously flred
ou a defenseless ship when there was
no question of the presence of torpedo boats. It ls understood tbat
this point was brought before Ambassador Benkendorff this afternoon.
It bas also been pointed out to the
Ambassador that it is practically
impossible for trawlers to move when
their nets are down, so they could
not have got out of the way of the
Russian squadron even if they had
been ordered to do.
This morning's feeling of extreme
pessimism did not last long, and
this afternoon there is a disposition
to believe that a way will still be
found to avoid a breach between the
two countries.
London, Oct. 27.—(1.42 p.m.)— Up
to this hour there is no sign of an
end to the deadlock over the question of punishment of thc Russian officers responsible lor the North Sea
tragedy. The Associated Press understands that Ambassador Becken-
dorff in his interview with Lord
Lansdowne today maintained that
such punishment must be taken on
the spontaneous initiation oi the Emperor's government, and that a demand Irom a foreign power that Russia shall punii.h her officers cannot be
entertained. In any event, it was
impossible for the Russian government to mete out punishment without having before it the statement of
facts as presented by its own ollicets.
Count Beckendorff also pointed out
lhat tlie Emperor's telegram was regarded by all Russians less as a personal communication to King Edward than as an expression of the
sentiment of the whole Russian nation. There is no indication oi Lord
Lansdowne withdrawing his demand,
although the dispute has not yet
orate Rojestvensky. In view of the'reached an ultimatum stage. Rus-
eulirely new complexion placed upon' sia's continued failure to compl)

ANOTHER BLUNDER.
Stockholm, Sweden, Oct, 27.—The
skipper of Hie Swedish steamer Aldebaran from Hall, England, which
was chased in the Skagcraek during
(he evening of Friday Oct. 21, by a
foreign cruiser, apparently Russian,
which threw its searchlights on her,
says the cruiser, increasing her speed
passed the Aldebaran and fired a shot
which had no effecl. The Aldobar-
ail thereupon hoisted her flag and
Ihe cruiser again threw her searchlight on Ihc steamer and a few mini
utes later hailed shot around the
Aldebaran, without, however, hitting
her, Thc skipper then ordered the
steamer lo he slopped and with his
crew sought, rcluge below. The Foreign warship thereupon disappeared
in the darkness.
STILL CONSULTING.
London, Oct. 27.—Ambassador llcn-
kendoru" paid another visit te   Lord

All the cabinet ministers have been
instructed to hold themselves in

report that a council had been summoned anil naturally, increased the
pmlular excitement, ns it was interpreted us an indication that ' the
government was about lo take a final step. No cabinet meeting has been
definitely fixed, but one will undoubtedly be held before the government

character. Ambassador Dcnckctidci'ft

with equal force to ourselves.    Are
we going to grow wheat tor United

This would result, the Journal    ol

s rplus wheat crop of Canada; an increased demand in the Stales for barrels and other packages In which Ihe
wheat  would  be     exported;   United
States     transportation    companies
would benefit; the larger number    of
workmen employed would create additional  markets for farm products,
and constitute the gcacralinmiiimmm
and contribute to the general pras-
pi'iily of the country.   Why should
Canadian raw material go lo build
up United Stales industries when by
having our wheat milled at home the
only, way for United States millers

YUKON PEAT.
The While Pass is anxious to learn
if there is peat in the Yukon valley.
President Graves has written from
Chicago asking General Agent J. H.
Rogers at Dawson to make Inquiries
regarding peat. Mr. Rogers says he
would not be surprised to learn that
there Is peat in the Yukon country,
in commercial quantities. It is well
known that throughout the Yukon
tundra beds are common and that
great areas of lowland are covered
lo sonic extent with pest.
It is also known that there is peat
on the line ol the White Pass rail
on to the line, and laid their children and themselves on the metals
in front of the troop train.
Every day those who arc still liable to be called In the second line
of reserves try to escape. But this
has now been more or less effectually
stopped. Only yesterday morning a
number of those would-be refugees
were captured by the cunning of the
authorities. They had offered the
booking-clerk at the station bribes,
poor fellows, some of them as much
on fifty rubles, (£10). He, acting
by instruction, advised them, in a
friendly way, to take the last ear
on thc train, third class, whicli! itvould

"Yes, and wings take riches,]' replied the man who had been backing

Houston Post,
large numbers of sourting couples
suffering from craw-craw in Birmingham, he said, and oftcner than not
one transmits the disease to the
other by kissing, tn one case which
came under his observation, the engaged girl was kissed by her sweetheart, who was a victim of the disease. Shortly afterward she complained of a terrible itching. The
case was incorrectly diagnosed, and
the young woman, who slept with
her sister, transmitted the disease,
and the latter passed it onto a
younger! brother. Thus (our persons became affected through kissing.
In another a barmaid went to  see
her brother,     a soldier, on his    return from the war.      They   kissed
each other, and the result was    the
young woman a few days sunscquanV

of the fact that he was himself suffering from     the disease, thc nematode worm being distinctly shown in'

MAN OF MARK.
Not long ago at a certain Police
Court a man was brought up charged with being the individual "wanted" for a series ol burglaries in a
distant town. He pleaded that it
was a case of mistaken identity. He
was not the man at all, and had never been in the town named before in
his life. A detective-inspector from
that place, however, confidently expressed a totally different opinion.
"Arc you certain ol your man?"
asked one of the magistrates of the
last witness.
'''Perfectly!" was the'reply. "There
can be nq mistake!"
"But what makes you so confident?"
"The tattoo marks on the' prisoner!" replied the officer. "The man Is
very well known in M—, and there
isn't another man in tlie kingdom
tattooed like him!"
"What do you say to that?" asked
tbe magistrate of the prisoner.
"Say?"  was the disgusted reply.

and thrived in the usual way unlil

progress was suddenly and mysteriously arrested, and since then six

has attracted tlie attention of many
medical men, more than one of whom
has expressed the conviction that
this remarkable man will live to be

to the front; not, certainly, because
the citizens would be rid of these
poor fellows, but on account of the
scenes which mark the nightly departures. The trains, with their
complements ol 300 men apiece, are
usually despatched between two and
four a.m. Whenever ccscrvlsts are
'mustered, they arc hustled off by
night to obviate demonstrations of
popular discontent with thc war.
Wives and children, hundreds ol
sympathetic citizens, hang around
the terminus into thc early hours of
thc morning to bid good-hy to those
departing. But these scenes wen)
too pathetic and disquieting lor tho

thc station was supplemented by a
