Bennett Burleigh Writes of Russian
Works at Lino Yang.
LONDON, Oct. 12. A letter from Ben
nett Burleigh, mailed to Vancouver, B.
C, and telegraphed from there to the
Dally Telegraph, gives an oven column de
scription of tho battle of Lino Yang.
H declares that tho Russian works wcro
stronger than those at Motz and should
havo been as difficult to force as tho forts
and lines of Paris In 1S70. Kuropatkin
did well yet with a more denperato reso
lution and better material he might havo
gained a doubtful success.
Mr Burlolgh thinks that Field Marshal
Oyama might havo turned from tho
West tho Russians extraordinarily strong
positions without recourso to so despor

"It was a remarkable Instance of in

RUSSIANS ARE '
Tension Displayed at

Advices From Front Indi
cate Reverse for Kuro
patkin. Field Marshal Oyama Has Gained
Ground, Forcing tho Czar'fe
ST. PETERSBURG, Oct. 12. It is now
mfdnlght on the battlofleld below Mukden
and tho failure to receive nows that tho
Russians nchlovcd dcclslvo results In to
day's light north of Ycntal. coupled with
the Toklo report that Field Marshal Oya
ma Is gaining ground, causes Increased
apprehonslon. Great tension and somo
nervousness Is displayed at tho War of
fice Russians Cross Taitse River.
Tho dispatch of tho Associated Pross
from Toklo was tho first postlvo Informa
tion that Russian troops in any forco woro
nlrcady across tho Taitso river, although
it was already known hero that somo cav
alry had passed over tho river.
Attempt to Cut Japanese Line.
Tho roport that another column was at
tempting to cut tho Japancso line of com
munication with tho Ynlu river did not
como as a surprise, as It was known, al
thought not revealed for strategic reas
ons, that wldo turning operations were
proceeding on the Russian oxtremo left,
screened by tho column oporatlng against
Three Days' Battlo.
Tho latest reports lndlcato that tho
fighting at Schlll rivor la of much larger
proportions than was supposed yesterday.
Tho battlo has now raged uninterruptedly
for threo days and nights and tho Rus
sians have been unuble to mako further
headway slnco tho oheck which they sus
tained October 10, owing to tho deter
mined. roi?$tyica of tho Japanese.
Fighting of Desperate Character.
The latest War office Information Bays
the fighting Is of a most desperato charac
ter. Tho positions aro constantly chang
ing hands. Tho Russians aro Inflicting
and sustaining heavy losses. A mention
of tho Tomsk regiment as being tho worst
sufferer Indicates that tho Second Siber
ian division of Gon. Gavnoff'a corps Is en
gaged. Danieloff Is Wounded.
An official report from Gen. DanlelofT,
commanding tho Sixth Siberian rifle divi
sion, who Is wounded, shows that Gen.
Stakclborg's corp3 Is also in the fight. If
tho full two corps are Involved about 50,000
Russians aro engaged.
What Kuropatkin Is Doing.
Dispatches lndlcato that Kuropatkin
Is transferring tho weight of his blow to
tho Japaneao right Tho extrcmo Russian
loft extends to tho Taitso river, whero it
bonds northward to forty miles abovo
Llao Yang The lino includes tho villages
of Ultzy and Tantzlaputzy, thrco miles
south of Bontslaputze and then bends
northward of Slalluhcdsy, on tho upper
Schlll, a fow miles northwest of tho Ycntal
Heights Were Stormed.
Gen. Sakharoff, telegraphing yesterday
evening, confirms the roports of desperato
fighting north of YontaJ, whero tho heights
wero altornatcly held by tho Russians and
PATIENCE IS COUNSELED.
Russian General Staff Ask the People
ST. PETERSBURG. Oct 13, 3:20 o. m.
No official nows of tho result of today's
battlo south of Mukden Is nvailablo at
this hour. Gen. Kuropatkin doubtloss has
communicated hl3 regular report tq Em
peror Nicholas, but tho dispatch was not
sent back to tho general staff tonight. As
is natural, the absonco of official news' Is
pessimistically Interpreted in many quar
ters, but tho general staff, though rotl
ccnt, counsol patlonco, pointing out that
tho offcnslvo movemunt was planned on
a large scalo and has not yet reached a
NBtngo whero a doclslvo rcault could havo
Desperate Battlo Developed.
Tho frontal attack on tho Ycntal mines
dovolopcd a desperato battlo In which
probably 100,000 men aro engaged, but
though tho dispatches so far deal almost
exclusively with this featuro of the bat
tle, It Is pointed out that thcro Is a much
wider field Involved. A fight on tho Rus
sian left tlank has not yet developed, and
possibly hero Gen. Kuropatkin Intends to
deliver hlB main blow.
Wide Nature of Turning Move.
What force Is pushing forward In this
direction behind tho Mcrccn containing tho
column is unknown, but tho appearnnco
tonight of a Russian column at Tzyan
chan, thirty miles southoast. striking at
Field Marshal Oyama's communications
with tho Yalu, and tho knowledge that
another column is already across tho
T.iltzo river, gives ovldenco of tho wldo
naturo of tho turning movement.
Reason for Attack on Yentai Mines,
It la possible that tho attack on tho
Yontol miaou muy simply bo intended to
hold tho main Japanese forco stationary,
and that tho outcome of tho Yontal fight
may havo little bearing on tho result of
tho general engagement.
While It Is now asserted that Gon
Kuropatkin enjoys a considerable numeri
cal superior force, tho main fear ex
pressed that this superiority is Insuffi
cient to enable him to carry out the big
operations ho has undertaken.
Cause for Worry.
Apprehonslon Is caused by tho Toklo
dispatch Baying that Fiold Marshal
Oyama roports that ho Is gaining ground
and has cut off a Russian column below
tho Tnltze river. It Ib only natural, nftor
tho repeated reverses alroady suffered,
that Russians fully realize how much
Gen, Kuropatkin has 3toked on tho aa
tnimptlon of tho offensive.
