St. Petersburg, Feb. 9. An official dispatch received.here says that Jap-
ftnese torpedo boats have attacked he Russian squadron in the outer roads
at Port Arthur and that three Russian ships were damaged.
Later the Russian admiralty received, information that eleven Japanese
end one Russian warship were sunk in attacks upon Port Arthur. Several
Russians were killed and many were wounded.
Port Arthur is.in flames.
The imperial, ball, which was to have be en held this evening, has be en

attended a solemn Deum to pray for victory forthe Russian arms.

FEVERISH ACTIVITY I N ST. PETERSBURG.
St. Petersburg, 3 p. m.The news that Japan had duplicated her tactics
at the opening of he China-Japanese war by a torpedo atta'ck on the Russian
ships off Port Arthur, created intense excitement after the bare announce-
ment from Viceroy Alexieff at 8 o'clock this morning. Details are anxiously
awaited. Extra editions of he morning pape rs printed early in the fore
1 noon, after the appearance of he Official Messengsr, conveyed he intelligence
to the population of he capital and dispelled any lingering hopes that war
could be averted.
The czar and his ministers, who had been informed immediately of the
receipt of Viceroy Alexieff's telegram, accepted he gage and prepared to face
I the reality of war. The czar's manifesto declaring a state of war to exist is
I xected to be issued to-morrow at the latest.

HAYASHI O N JAPAN'S PLANS.
London, Feb. 9.Baron Hayashi says the Japane se fleet is not likely to
blockade Port Arthur. His knowledge of the Japanese naval plans, as ten-
tatively prepared, leads him and others here to belieye that the Japanese
fleet is now lying between Chifu
and the Yalu river screening the
landi ng of troops, one army corps at
Fusan and two at Pen Yang, Korea.
Night torpedo attacks by the Jap
anese fleet will, it is believed, be kept
up so long as the Russian fleet main
tains its necessarily, open position
outside of Port Arthur. This will be
done in the hope'of breaking up the
The troops landing at Pen Yang
will be pushed toward the Manchur
ian frostier. Those at Fusan will
proceed to Seoul.
Unless Viceroy Alexieff assumes he
aggressiA^e, no serious naval battle is
expected until he disembarkation of
the Japanese troops is completed.
A dtspatch from Rome saying that
the Japanese government had pur
chased the Chilean battleship Ca p
itan Prat, the cruiser Chacabuco and
he gunboat Almirante Condell, was
pronounced untrue by Baron Hayashi.
The Nippon company's London agents

ture of he steamer Inaba Maru near
Hongkong by Russian warships, as
reported by a news agency in the United States to-day. I is asserted here
that Russia has no warship in he vicinity of Hongkong and that, therefore,
the Inaba Maru cannot have been captured.

q'clo^k this morning. The newly arrived' volunteer visitors remained to assist
he veary local men.
With he exception of a few buildings, 140 acres of valuable city property
is devastated. During the early' morning hours several sma ll fires started
among the ruins of the burned buildings. Only debris, however, was left to
Not the slightest disturbance occurred during the long hours of he
night, the first since Saturday in which Baltimore has dared to sleep. Utterly
exhausted, by the. long,.siege of watching- and worry, when no man could say
that any portion of the city was safe, the people of Baltimore last night went
to rest feeling assured th at he flames were entirely controlled and the full
extent of the damage knowm Only the firemen and police guardsmen
remained on duty thru' he night. Doubled sentries on every corner of the
long cordon around the,flame-swept district challenged sharply every passer
and pn many posts refused to honor the police Are line permits or even the.
regulation military passes 'purporting to be good on all posts and at all hours
of the day or night.
Beginning this morning the companies of the First regiment, Maryland
guard, which had been ordered here yesterday afternoon, were posted on
guard. I will .be several days, at least,-before the. policing of he city can b*
entrusted to its regular guardians, under normal conditions.
With the falling of night began the departure of outside firemen, the*
flames being so completely under control that "ire Chief Horton believed he
could safely dispense with he battalions from other towns. The Chester and
Altoona departments left last night and.the other putside firemen,departed
at intervals during he day.
Incoming trains during the forenoon brought sight-seers in considerable
numbers from adjace nt cities and he near-by country districts^" Those" who.
came anticipating the spectacle of a great city in confusion, and lost \n clouds
of smok e, were disappointed. Even to he very ed ge of the burned region
there is nothing spectacular. Strangers alighting from trains at the large-
railway stations, particularly those in he northern sections of- town, see mere ly
the normal Baltimore under a brilliant winter sky.
The street cat companies are making brave efforts to, resume, service.
The suburban lines are maintaining service and certain tracks in the unaf-
fected parts of the town also display.a few cars.
THE BURNED AREA.
Of the great region swept by the fire, curiously enough, no part was
devoted to residences, so he sheltering' of homeless is no part of the city's
problem. I the fire area are embraced he financial district, a considerable
portion of the wholesale district, an area given over to brokers of yariou*
kinds, and a large shipping district along the wharves. I the wholesale dis-
trict were located many of the wholesale dry goods merchants and rrianu-
facturers of clothing. Adjacent to this was a high-class retail district, with
most of the principal jewelry, furniture and piano, establishments.
Practically eve ry office building in the -city was destroyed, along with the
banks and trust companies in he financial district. Around the Stock
Exchange and Chamber of Commerce, which early fell before the flames, were
located he offices of many brokers, and these, with all the foreign steamship
and custom-house brokers' offices, were involved in the widespread ruin.

Baltimore, Feb. 9.One thing which
seems to have be en fully' demonstrated'
by the fire, is th at steel fireproof con
struction is not fireproof after all.
The Continental Trust, Maryland
Trusti and the Equitable buildings
now stand complete ruins. They are
mere shells, and it will not be possible'
to use any part of the framework as
a ,basis for reconstruction.
The Continental Trust building: was'
sixteen stories high. When once the'
windows were broken and. sparks
from the surrounding conflagration
entered the building, the interior ap
peared to burn like tinder. I was he
same with the Maryland Trust and he
Equitable buildings. Every particle-of
he woodwork in all three burned
with the greatest rapidity, and they
were destroyed almost as quickly as
any wooden building.
One of the remarkable freaks of he
fire was he saving of- the United
States bonded warehouse, at Iidmbar-d
and Gay streets. It is only three
stories high and was built in 1834/ ac

struction.. It now stands almost unin
