Bushwhacking Continues Around Mukden.
Mukden, Manchuria, Jan. 7. Minor skirmishes are occurring daily.
According to recent reports received by way of Chefoo, the two
armies lie facing each other, each having three fortified lines. The sol
diers of both armies live mostly in caves, behind their trenches, which
when covered with snow have the appearance of a gieat host of polar
bears waiting to spring at each other. The caves are warm even with
out fire. The Russian troops are in the best of spirits and have un
limited confidence to their leaders. They expect Kuropatkin to attack
during the winter. The Russian forces now number 300,000 men. There
are only a few hundred wounded at Mukden and thirty thousand
wounded at Harbin. The handling of the Russian artillery is improv
ing, while the Japanese artillery fire seems less effective. Originally the
Russians did not conceal their artillery, which the Japanese quickly dis
abled. Now the Russians handle and conceal their 'guns with perfect
To Reinforce. Kuropatkin.
Irkutsk, Russia, Jan. 7. Many reinforcements are enroute to Kuro
patkin. Gen. Kuropatkin is the possessor of a new twenty-horse-power auto
mobile, with which he is able to rush at high speed from one part to
another of the line, twenty-five miles long, according to M. Ravoir, who
spent three weeks with Kuropatkin. He wished to secure twenty auto
mobiles specially constructed to carry ammunition speedily in emer
gencies. He will only use them in winter, when the Manchurian roads
are in excellent condition. On his first trip in the new automobile
Kuropatkin's only comment was: "I have the advantage of General
Shafter." He still lives in his railroad car and the light in his office is
burning night and day. It is commonly stated that the general never
sleeps. His officers are not surprised at being called to a conference at
any hour of the night. The general's only relaxation is at dinner time,
when the officers who are his guests number scores. Wine is plentiful,
but Kuropatkin drinks mineral water. Every Russian officer seems to
have an unlimited supply of money, the government being lavish in its
