A St. Fotorsburg cablegram carried
by tho Assoclatod Press follows:
"Lieutenant General Stoessel was
condemned to death this evening by
a military court for tho surrender
of Port Arthur to tho Japanese. Gen
eral Foek, who commanded tho
Fourth ISnal Siberian division of Port
Arthur, was ordered reprimanded for
a disciplinary offense, which was not
connected w (ho surronder, and
General Smirnoff, acting commander
of tho fortress, and Major General
Kolss, ehiof of staff to Genoral Stoes
sel, wore acquitted of tho charges
against thorn for lack of proof. Tho
court recommended that tho death
sontenco upon Lieutenant Genoral
Stoessol bo commuted to ton years'
Imprisonment in a fortress and that
ho bo excluded from tho service.
Gonoral Vodar, president of tho
court, read tho sentence amid tonse
silonco. Hy a great effort of self
control General Stoessol maintained
rigid, soldler-llko Impassivity. Gen
eral Smirnoff was also seemingly un
moved, but there wore tears in tho
eyes of General Iteiss. Tho sentence
of death was pronounced upon Gen
eral Stoessel for surrendering tho
fortress before all the means of de
fenso had been exhausted: for failing
to enforce his authority and for mil
itary misdemeanors."
An Associated Press dispatch from
Washington says: "Rising in the
senato to a question of privilege, Mr.
Tillman today made complaint of the
use of his name in connection with
efforts to sell railroad grant lands
in tho northwest, which might be
affected by the inquiry he has set on
foot concerning such lands. He said
his attention had been called to a
very adroit scheme of swindling, in
which his name was used as a decoy,
and that letters had come from Con
necticut, Wisconsin, Virginia and
Michigan. He declared that he had
not invested one cent nor located a
single quarter section for himself or
any one. Senator Tillman has called
tho attention of the postoflice de
partment to the matter, with a view
to the issuance of a fraud order."

in wagons and automobiles. Private
carriages were even pressed into ser
vice. A number cf persons who were
watching tho paraders got into the
first disturbance and when the big re
serves hurried down upon the march

Some of tho marchers drew revol
