When asked about the authenticity of this note, Mr Reynolds to-night refused to either affirm or deny its authenticity. He said that he would talk about his dealings with Mrs. Chadwick only on the witness stand.

Secret Service Man on Watch. Simultaneously with the announcement from Cleveland that President Beckwith, of the suspended Citizens' National Bank, of Oberlin, was to be placed under arrest, an official of the United States Secret Service appeared at the Holland House, and took up his station there." When rec- ognized he declared that he waa sent to the hotel hurriedly, and that he had been given no orders. He went so far as to say that he did not know for whom he was looking. After a long- talk on the telephone the Secret Service man said he was not interested in the Chadwick case, but de- Ciined absolutely to announce the nature of his mission. Emil, the young son of Mrs. Chadwick, has been staying near his mother for was the subject of some Inquiry to-day. It was said that he had left thfe hotel. This could not be verifleil. It was rumored that the boy had left town with the Jewels alleged to belong to his mother, and that she would follow him to-night or to-morrow. This was de- nied by Mr, Carpenter, who said that his client would remain in New York at least through Monday. Dr Leroy S.

Japanese Decimated, On the morning Of the Jap- anese, instead, of advancing by way of Redi H-lll. made a distinct move on High Hill. TlJe attack began at daylight and was continued with desperato resolution. The Japanese, advancing into the valley between Red and. High hills, received the fire from both forts, and were decimated, but, sweeping on, they stormed the slopes of High Hill and captured the southeast corner of the northern face Meanwhile, another force effected a lodgment near the parapets on the west face. These op- erations were very costly, both sides throwing numerous grenades- down Swept Back by Russians. On the 29th the Russians made a furious counter attack and bore back the Jap- anese from the southeast corrcr and swept them down into the valley between Red' and High hills. They partially dislodged the Japanese from the south- west face. The Japanese, however, clung to the trenches thirty meters below the crest. Strong Japanese reserves now brought up, and when they reached the fighting line at dawn on the 30th the at- tack was renewed against the pouthwest face. Throughout the whole forenoon the fighting was continuous, but the Rues ans gave no sign of yielding. Meanwhile the Japanese artillery found the exact range early in the afternoon, and poured on the southwest angle a shower of shell which mowed down the defenders Japanese ships a'so aided with an indirect fire from Pigeon Bay. Assault Carried Home. OBy 5 p. m. the Russians showed signs of weakening, and the Japanese made a re- newed rush from their trenches on the southwest corner, but the Russians did not move, and the casualties of the as- sailants were heavy. At this critical mo- ment reserves were poured Into the Japa- nese fighting line, and, with shouts which rang over the whole of Port Arthur, the assailants hurled themselves repeatedly against the Russians, who finally, at 7.30 p. m., broke Into groups of twenty or thirty and retired. Suddenly, almost simultaneously, the assailants of the southeast angle pushed home their attack, and the whole fortress was occupied at p. m. Six Counter Attacks. After this Red Hill was carried easily, but the same night the Russians, whose large re-enforcements, summoned by tele- phone, had arrived just too late, deliv- ered six separate counter attacks, the sixth of which continued from 4 a. m. till noon of December 1. The Russians re- peatedly closed up to bayonet and there was a series of hand-to-hax d struggles, the assailants falling back ard again advancing. Finally, after terrlb e losses, the Russians retreated to Ants s- and Itszshan, leaving the Japanese in assured possession. The capture of this hill is regarded as very important, as the Russian ships are now exposed to direct fire. The Russians have diligently renewed operations for CONTIXCED ON SECOND PAGE.
