First Siberian Army Corps Has Been iH

clbcrg'H First Siberian army corps which lc
was reported yesterday by Gen. Kuropat
kin as having been cut off to tho west-
ward of Uao Yang, has been safely ex- Tsl
trlcatcd. Gen. Kuropatkln telegraphed Jtal
at 7 o'clock Saturday ovonlng that tho Wl
groator portion of his army waa then Vsl
south of Yangtal, about ten mnes nortn- 1t
cast of Llao Yang, and that tho other ; v
portion of It was crossing tho Taltso river .
and taking up a position on the right Vl
bank. This message, which was received Il
by tho Emperor early Sunday morning. "pl

tlon of tho Russian army, and the au-
thorltle.s gavo sighs of relief. 1;3
Consider Situation Grave. 'JH
,Thero Is no attempt, however, to con-
ccal the gravity of the situation, is view vB
of tho absence of nows regarding what J
is happening today. It Is not clear from M
tho latest telegrams whethor tho Rus- 'J
si an 3 nro continuing their retreat or If ''ll
they havo boon compelled to face tholr -'1
foe. Tho gloomy report telegraphed by IIH
tho Russian commander-in-chief ln tho .Hl
early stages of the light of Saturday last r'lH
and his bitter reproaches against Gen.
Stakclbcrg aro attributed to his chagrin ftll
over tho falluro of his ofTonslvc plans. tSII
May Lose His Command. HlH
No dotatls are given of tho escape of inl
Gou Stakclberg'B corps from the clutches? i3H
of the enemy, but It Is believed that It rnH
owes Its safety to tho neglect or tho ina- ESjl
blllty of tho Japanese to follow up their dM
advantage. Gen. Stakclbcrg was allowed ttlH
to cross tho river and como up with tho IftH
main army ln thuo to enable tho shattered H&fll
remnants of MaJ.-Gen. OrlofTs detach- jrfiH
mont to retreat. This exploit Is likely Btll
to condono Gen. Stakelberg's dlsobcd-
lenco, but unless the Emperor forgives ffiM
him he will have to appear ooforo a court- llgl
martial and probably will loso hla com- iul
Tho War Office In able to make tho re- H
assuring statement that the Russian re- nH
treat from Llao Yang did not Involve tho ifiH
losses of guns, and It Is also declared that KH
