ST. PETERSBURG -Tho reports
that General Kuroki is pushing on
northeast of Mukden aro not burne
3Ut by official telegrams that have
been recolved here. According to
tho latest advices tho Japanese forces
continue to Increase at Blanupuza
nnd Ycntnl. A decisive ndvanco in
the direction of Mukden is thcreforo
not expected to occur for somo days.
Monwhlle, Indications increase of the
probability of tho Jnpancoo meeting
with resistance. The Russian forces
nt Mukden nro undoubtedly very largo
and every day's delny cnnbles tho
commander-in-chief to perfect his do
ronccs. A private dispatch from
Mukden reportB tho arrival of an Im
mense train filled with convalescents
returning to duty. This may bo re
garded aB good evidence of a largo
concentration of troops at Mukden.

Russian cruisers In the Baltic. It In
ieclarod thnt there can bo no breach
if neutrality In coaling Russian war
ships outside of Russian territorial
waters. This whole question was
thoroughly discussed by eminent Jur
ists nt nn earlier stage of tho war
ind resulted In the admlraltty's de
cision not to seek coaling facilities
In noutral ports which might lead to
Implications, but to adopt tho Inde
pendent course of coaling wnr ships
it sea. This course does not iy either
3roat Britain or Germany open to
suspicion of favoring Russia, for,
'hough Gorman colliers wero used on
tho occasion In question, tho ropson
nihility of the German govornmont
was not Involved, as Is shown by tho

is unable to follow up every departing

in her own hands nnd can send out

A JUMP IN WHEAT.
Bull Operators Seo a Chance For
CHICAGO "Wheat at $2 a bushel
beforo next Mny," was roared by tho
bulls on Monday on tho board of
trade At tho opening of tho market
thero was an oxcltcd demand for
wheat with few tradors venturing to
soil. The prlco for May dollvory was
from $1.11 to $1.12 and for delivery
for tho present month from $1.05
to $1.03. Thoso who wished to buy
shouted bids of 2 cent3 n bushel nbovo
the prices prevailing at the closo Sat
urday and tho quantity that ono would
sell even nt such n tomptlng advanco
was extremely limited.
The agricultural bureau at Wash
ington issuod a roport Saturday after
noon that, nccordlng to tho bulls, con
firmed the worst fears regarding tho
lamontable losses to tho spring wheat
crop by the black rust Of winter
and spring wheat produced this year
In the Unltod States It was contended
there was barely enough for bread
and seed If evory bushel of It was
available, which Is not possible; and
tho country Is therefore fnco to faco
with tho necessity of bringing In for
olgn wheat to help keep tho wolf from
the door until anotho'r harvest Bhall
havo been raised.
At the high point of U10 day all
deliveries showed a gain of 4 cents
or more, as compared with Satur
day's final quotations. The sensa
tional Btrength was maintained to the
end, the market closing almost at tho
highest point Final figures on Mny
wero at $1.48. September closed at
$1.09-74 and December at $1.12.

WHAT IS CONTRABAND OF WAR
The Consignment of Goods to Private
Parties Does Not Always Prove that
They Aro Not Intended for tho Cell!
ST. PETERSBURG Russia's reply
to the representatives of the United
States and Great Britain regarding
contraband of war was communicated
to their respective embassies this aft
ernoon. It is understood that Russia
recognizes the principle thnt provi
sions are not contraband when con
signed to private parties, but only
contraband when Intended as military
or naval stores.
Russia In Count Lamedorff's re
sponse to Ambassador Hardlnge, In
principle meets the views of the Ameri
can and tho British governments re
garding foodstuffs and coal and other
fuel as being conditional contraband
of war, distinctly placing them In the
category of articles susceptible of
uses both In war and In peace, and
as Euch only confiscable when consign
ed to blockaded ports or destined for
military or for naval forces of tho
Shipments In the ordinary course of
trade by private persons or firms, even
to an onemy'o port, may bo regarded
prima facie not contraband, but on
this point distinct reservation is made.
The simple fact of consignment to
prlvato persons does not preclude tho
possibility that the article aro not ul
timately destined for belligerent
forces, and Russia Insists that It bo
not necessarily regarded as conclusive
evldonco of the Innocent character of
tho goods. In other words. Irregular
ship's papers or other suspicious cir
cumstances might vitiate tho assump-p
Hon of Innocent character, but where"
such suspicion Is raised the burden of
proof to warrant legal seizure Is to
rest upon the enptor. Count Lamsdorff
pointed out, however, that captains of
merchantmen also owed a duty In
Count Jamsdorff's reply was not
prosented In written form, hut was
communicated verbally to Ambassa
dor Hardlngo. It will not Involve pub
lic amendment of Russian contraband
and prize regulations, but In effect It
becomes nn official Interpretation of
tho original regulations made by the
commission composed of representa
tives of the ministries of foreign af
fairs, marine, wnr and Justice, which
considered tho subject In connection
with the objection raised by the
Unltod States and Great Britain, nnd
as such will hereafter govern naval
commanders and prize courts, which
thus far in the war have classed nil ar
ticles enumeratea In artlclo six of the
Russian regulations as absolute con
traband. In this way Russia preserves Its dig
nity by not making an open surrender
at the same tlmo consenting to the In
terpretation asked for by the United
States and Great Britain In the rights
of neutral commerce.
