TweUe Japanese guns were silenced, ev- ery gunner being killed, and their Infan- try support also being driven back. The gun3 stood in plain view, but it was Im- possible for us to take -them. Two bat- talions which were ordered to secure the Japanese guns advanced In tjie face of a terrible cannonade and rifle fire from the Japanese rear positions. It was, however, an impossible task; the shrapnel of the entmy decimated the advancing ranks, whole companies withered under the ter- rific fire, and our men were compelled to abandon the attempt. "Ijater in the- day a similar fate befell three of our battene-s. They had advanc- ed behind our infantry to pave the way for ait attack on the Japanese position, but the infantry was forced back, the ar- tillerymen were almost all killed, and the grns remained alone. The Japanese made dee para le advances in the hope of securing the guns, but each time ere driven and toward nightfall iwe removed the guns safely. "Our artillery action was beyond praise.

"The forces of the enemy opposing the left wing of the left army at Changllang- po and neighborhood, where the left col- umn was engaging them, gradually ob- tained re-enforcements, and at 3 o'clock in the afternoon made a counter attack, but they were successfully repulsed by our left column. The strength of the enemy opposing tho left column was fully four regiments' of infantry, with ten bat- teries of artillery." The report from field headquarters goes on to say: Japanese Win Everywhere. "From October 10 to October 14 the re- sult of the continuous fighting has- been favorable In every direction, while the enemy's strength was always superior. Not only was> the enemy defeated, but he was vigorously pursued by us, our forces pressing him against the left bank of the Hun River and Inflicting upon him heavy loss. "The guns captured number over thirty and the prisoners taken number several hundred. "Thus the object of the enemy has been completely frustrated, and his offensive movement has ended Jn final failure. "The corpses left by the enemy at dif- ferent points are too numerous to be easily counted. "The enemy's losses cannot be easily as- certained, owing to the continuance of the fighting but they must exceed "The trophies, besides the guns, include an enormous quantity of ammunition, wapons, and rifles. These are still un- counted. Estimate of the Losses. "The Russian corpses left on the field between October 10 and October 13 and burned by us exceeded two thousand in number. The bodies left after the fighting of October 14 are very numerous. Our casualties October 11 and 12 were 15 offi- cers killed. 46 wounded, and men killed and wounded. "Tho enemy defeated by the Sien- chuang garrison October 10 appears to have halted at Plntienshan. According to prisoners captured, the Russian force for- merly stationed at Lutaohotzu lost sixty killed and wounded. The Japanese loss was three officers and a few men wounded." Six Attacks Repulsed.

The 'Russians re- pulsed six attacks and thrice silenced the Japanese artillery. The losses of the Rus- sians were very great.

Democratic Candidate Discusses Philip- pine Question at Length ia Address to Visiting that if Islands Ate Given Just Laws People Will Soon Be Ready for Self-govern- a Menace. Rosemount, Esopus, N. Y., Oct. Judge Parker to-day addressed two vlelt- ing delegations on the political issue, mdk'ng hie tecond speech of the campaign since accepting the Democratic nomina- tion for the Presidency. The delegation numbered about J20 men, a score repre- senting the Parker Independent Club and the others the on Beach Regular Dem- ocratic Club, of Long Island. The delegations arrived at o'c'ock on a regular train over the West Siiore Railroad from New York, and, forming a procession, inarched to Rosemount. Juage Parker met them on hia veranda, whe.-e a few weeks ago he addressed the Demo- cratic editors and where he had frequent- ly Members of the In- dependent Club took seats on the veran- da and the others diew near on the lawn. When Judge Parker stepped from the house he was gteeted with hand-clapp'ng. Col. Charles R. Codman, of Boston, Mass., and Prof. Henry W. Hardon, of New York, made extensive speeches. Both speakers confined their remarks- to the Philippine Islands question, and In a dis- cussion of the attitude of the Republican administration on that .question. Col. Cod- man said In his speech: Separation to the Philippines. "The least reparation that can be made to the Philippines Is to give them that in- dependence of which they should never have been deprived. Believing that you are in sympathy with theae opinions, we are prepared to advocate your election to the Presidency. We believe that you favor giving to the Philippine same independence to which Cu declared by Congress to, be of xjeht, enti- tled, and we also believe that are prepared to give them an immediate promise that so far iw It In your power, should you be elected President, that in- dependence shall be secure to them with- out delay." Prof. Hardon followed with a chapter in the early diplomatic history of the United States, together with a review of speeches in Congress on the Philippine question and their bearing upon the va- rious treaties respecting the Islands. Dis- cussing the failure of this government to give .to the Filipinos their freedom un- der a United States protectorate, Prof. Hardon said: "A great opportunity was thus lost by the Republican party. An opportunity to confer benefit both on the Filipinos them- selves and upon this country. Had this course been pursued Mr. McKinley would have hailed at all times In the PJlll- ipplne Islands as a great liberator, the United States would have been spared the waste of life and money involved in the Philippine war. and would have gained commercial advantages more valuable than those it now haa The existing situ- ation is distressing to a large number of people who regret the contrast between Republican doctrine and the doctrine of the Republican party, and also see no hope of improvement except In the as- cendency of the party whose candlate you are." Judge Parker's Address. Judge Parker replied as follows: "Col. Codman, Prof. Hardon, and Gentle- men: "I greatly appreciate the compliment of your presence, and the assurance of the support of yourselves and those you represent. The importance of the issue to which you refer cannot be overestimated. It is attracting the attention of the thoughtful, patriotio men all over the counti y. Permit me to call your atten- tion to the portion of the Democratic platform relating to It: 'No government has the right to make one set of laws for those "at home" and another a different set of laws, absolute In their character, for those "in the colo- nies." Wherever there may exist a peo- ple Incapable of being governed under American laws in consonance with the American Constitution, the territory of that people ought not to be part of the American domain. We Insist that we ought to do for the Filipinos what we have done already for the Cubans, and that It is our duty to make that prom- ise now, and upon suitable guarantees of protection to citizens of our own and oth- er countries resident there at the time of our withdrawal, to set the Filipino peo- ple uppn their feet, free and Independent, to work out their own "The Declaration of Independence, born In the brain of the father of Democracy, says the same thing In effect, for It de- clares that governments derive 'their Just powers from the consent of the gov- erned.' "I have before said that we may not disregard the responsibility Imposed by possession of the Philippines, and that 'responsibility will be best subserved by preparing the islanders as rapidly as possible for self-government, and given to them the assurance that It will came as soon as they are reasonably pre- pared for It.' This means Independence for the Filipinos In the full sense of the word. When prepared they may govern themselves as the Cubans do, unassisted, unless asking help, undirected; unless asking advice, untrammeled by our poli- tics, unencumbered by our politicians, and uncontrolled by us. Republicans for Subjugation. "Secretary Taft has said: 'A promise to give ultimate independence will be construed by the more violent element, disposed to agitation, to be a promise to grant independence In the near future and during the present generation. The success of the experiment we are making In the Philippines depends on having tbe Filipinos understand that we are there for their benefit, but that we expeot to W i -x' Controlled br WastTnartoD Capital.

The Re- publican parly stands for the subjugation of defenseless foreign peoples. Democ- racy stands for freedom. We relieved Spain of this thorn in her flesh, the Phil- ippines, to plunge It Into our own We paid, and are paying, enormously for tha privilege of perfo-mlng the operation. Spain had been trying to conquer the isl- ands since tho early decades of the six- teenth century She had never quite suc- ceeded. That is not surprising. Every true American Would despise a man wno would not light to the last gasp for the land of his fireside and the birthplace of babes. Did not our Illustrious ances- tors in the Revolution do HO? For what doad otyllizpcJ man the memory of WaBWalSon? Are not the Irish still chaf- ing under the English yoke? Will the Boer sympathizer refuse .if a sympathy to the Filipino patriot defending his hearthstone against the Spanish spoiler and Do we not honor every man who has at freedom's holy al- tar? When the battle-ships of our great republic- dPUroyed the Spanish war ves- sels the Filipinos hoped tho freedom for whlrh they had struggled so long: ftnallv approaching Our history seemed to guarantee that our ambition would be to see them free, happy, and prosperous. "'We perpetually po.at with pride to our love o? liberty The Republican platform asseits that, fifty >ears ago. the Repub- llcnntferty came intu existence dedicated puiposes to the great task ot arresting tho extension of human sla- very. The arresting the extension of nu- man sounds well; but It speaks of the virtue of another genera- tion. All the leaders of the Republican party of that day have passed away, Jn their places have come very different men. We need not point out that which principally differentiates them. It read- ily suggests itself. But we will refer to one of the results of that difference. Boor of Hope Closed. "After our utter defeat of the Spaniards the Republican administration paid to the vain opprest.rr of the unconqueied F'H- pinos for this uncertain option on this victim's land, tenements and hereditaments. In the attempt to bolster the option we have wasted over 000 more of the people's money and, sacri- ficed over lives And the waste of money and) the- sacrifice cf lives- are not yet fended if the policy of trie aJminisir.1- tlon is to be continued) indefinitely. That policy refuses to promise independence for the Islanders, now, or at any time, or upon any condition It does noi even leave open the dioor of hope. The admin- istration rails at the Democratic proposal to promise them independence as as they are piepared fur It Indeed, it sug- gests to of Intelligent people that such a promise would stimulate the 'vi- cious' to be more vicious, instead of en- couraging the improvement which would secure them what tuey most desire on I but state the propo- sition. It argues itself. If our people agree that the administration, is wrong In threatening by Us silence that which it undoubtedly namely, perpet- ual bondage for the Filipinos, the remedy is in fcheir hands We could, have donated to Spain a number of millions and annex- ed Cuba with equal justice and less SUB-- picion of Imbecility thajL we displayed in acquiring the Philippines. But we have done our duty to Cuba. We have left her to work out her own take her place In the march of civilized nations. Shall we forbid, the Filipinos to hope for Independence? Shall we prevent their building up their own, civilization, and try to force ours upon them? Civili- zation. a growth, not a disguise, and every race must work out Ita civilisation in Its own- way.

Secretary of War Ellliu Boot, of New York, and United States Senator Henry Cabot ot Mafasathu-setts, to-night addressed a Republican mass-meeting, held at the Academy of iMusic under the auspices df the "Union League. The Academy -was crowded to Us capacity, and the ad- dresses of the speakers aroused much en- thusiasm George B. Cortelyou, Repub- lican national chairman, occupied a seat on the stage. Mr. Hoot was the first speaker. He said, in part: "Jt Is impossible that the people of the United States should know either whai policy the Democratic party ,will substi- tute ror the grovern-mental _ policies of thp Republican party upon the 'great Issues o? political life or what manner of man it is who will be intrusted with the execution ol the governmental policies. The design and natural effect of this kind of cam- paign is to invite the people to compare the men and the policies and the per- formances of the Republican party, not with the main Intention, but with an ideal standard of perfection. "The Democratic party attacks the means and measures of tils' Republican party upon the ground that they are not perfect. We do not pretend to be perfect. We have been doing the best we could, and we believe the record shows that we have done better than the Democratic party have ever done or ever will do." The Democratic Platform. Referring to the Democratic platform, Mr. Root said: "The platform having been adopted, came Judge Parkers telegram. What was the convention to reply?

Though Judge Parker was of the opinion that the question was set- tled, where would he stand if a Demo- cratic Congress were to unsettle tt by passing; a frea sliver Concerning combinations of capital, the sneaker said: "Under the leadership of President Hoosevelt a Republican Congress passed additional laws necessary to the enforce- ment of the control of the Federal gov- ernment over trusts and monopolies, and an Attorney General of the Untted States had made them effective, so that all tha fulmlnations of the Democratic platform merely contribute to honor and grlory of their adversaries." Within the Constitution. Mr. Boot declared President was exercising his constitutional in recognizing the republic' of Panama, and referring to the Philippines, declared the demand of the that Fili- pinos be fitted for self-government was being compiled with by the Republican administration. Tie answered the charges of extravagance, and closed with a de- fense of President Rooaavelt'B recent dis- ability pension order.
