NOV LOCKED IN A DEATH STRUG

THE SECOND JAY'S CONFLICT
Nearly Half a Million Men Engaged
in a Battle That May Mean a Crush
Ing Defeat for One Side or tho
ST. PETERSBURG, With tho
knowlcdgo that tho Russian and Jap
anese armies nbout Llao Yang aro
locked in a death Btrugglo tho tension
in St. Petersburg is strained to the
utmost. It is bolieved hero that tho
fight ennnot stop short of tho crush
ing defeat of ono sldo or tho other.
All reports so far nro favorablo to
thn Russians, though tho suspension
of all news for many hours has been
exceedingly trying and has given rlso
to several rumors, somewhat temper
ing, tho earlier enthusiasm. It Is
stated officially, however, that the re
port that tho railway and telegraph
havo been cut north of Llao Yang Is
A member of tho general staff said
to tho Associated Press at midnight:
"I can nssuro you that up to this hour
communication with Liao Yang has
not been Interrupted. General Kuro
patkin has taken particular precau
tions ngalnst nny attempt to cut tho
railway. While It Is always possible
that a small raiding party might slip
through tho Russlnn patrols or that
hired Chlneso bandits might cut tho
wire, It Is n fair supposition that this
has not boon dono."
Tho highest military authorities
hero consider that tho moat critical
stage of tho battle has not yet been
reached, and they bellcvo tho fight
may contlnuo for somo time beforo
nither side acknowledges defeat. Tills
is an important consideration by tho
light of which to interpret nny im
mediate news. It Is thought hero that
in view of the numbers engaged? tho
desperatcnesB of tho assaults and the
length of tho lino (about seven miles),
tho losses in tho two dnyB' fighting
cannot fall short of 10,000 on each
side. Both sides are straining every
nervp, renlizlng thnt the fortunes of
war for n whole year aro In the scnlc,
and neither sldo Is In tho mood or tho
position to spare men In the effort tc
achieve a final victory.
Tho battle of Llao Yang will prob
ably rank as ono of tho great sanguin
ary battles of history. It Is estimated
by tho general staff that tho Japan
esn armies engaged number seven
teen divisions of 15,000 men each,
or nllowing for Inefllcients, about
240,000 men. Each division has thirty
six guns, niid there are two independ
ent artillery brigades of 100 guns
ench, making a total of about 800 guns1
Tho estimates of Russian corre
spondents range at from COO to 1,000
jnins per side.
in tho preliminary fighting on Mon
day tho Russians captured 200 pris
oners, who have .already arrived at
Harbin, and report persists that they
captured over forty Japanese guns yes"
General Kuropatkln's effective
forces nro variously estimated at from
170,000 to 200.000 men.
Tho Japaneso Wednesday morning
attacked three sides of the Russian po
sition. Ono of tho Associated Pre"
correspondents also mentions a Jap
aneso movement to the northeast of
Liao Yang, showing that tho Japan
ese were undoubtedly trying to work
around Kuropatkln's rear.
Ono of the surprising phases of the
situation Is the endurance of tho men.
They hnvo been engaged desperately
for two days, after mora or less se
vere fighting under unfavorable condl
tlons every day since August 21. It
would seem that human endurance
could not persist much longer without
respite of somo sort.
