TOKIO, Oct. 13. Gen. Oku has cap
tured twenty-five Russian guns, mak
ing a totnl of about thirty Russian
guns which have fallen Into tho hands
of the Japanese since the battle began.

The Russian commander was evi
dently caught while making his dispo
sitions with his forces scattered and
he was beaten before he could recover.

ground and succeed In beating back
the Japanese onslaught, but the tide
seems against him.
Tremendous Force Engaged.

LONDON. Oct 13. A dispatch' from ,
Mukden dated today, says: "The bat
tie south of this place continued
throughout Wednesday, with ever-
increasing fury. In respect of desper- I
atcness, bravery and bloodshed It far 'jl
exceeds the battle of Llao Yang. ill
Toward evening the Japanese repeat- fl

day of the battle."
Tide Favors Japan. x ;
While containing no positive Infor
matlon regarding specific results, to- :
day's dispatches from both Russian 1
and Japanese sources seem to Indicate
that the tide of the general engage
ment now In progress between tho
Hun and Taltse rivers, Is favorable to
Marshal Oyama. A Toklo dispatch '
filed at -I o'clock this afternoon says L
the latest reports from the front tell f I
of continued Japanese successes. I
Without Advices. ,
St. Petersburg confesses that no re- i jH
ports of today's developments have
been received, but admits that in the
previous fighting "the Russians had
not been entirely successful in defend-
ing their positions. The atmosphere IH
at the War ofllce," adds the dispatch. 'jH
"is by no means cheerful." The lack ' jH
of advices from tho Russian front Is
regarded as significant.
Anxiety at Legation. jH
News of the battle between the Bus- , IH
slans an'd Japaneso was eagerly await-
ed hero throughout the day at the Ja- ' 'H
panese Legation. Many Inquiries were ( iH
made by British ofllpluls, but the Ja- IH
panese authorities were even less in
formed than the newspapers. The sus-
pense was not untlnged with anxiety, J :
which was more noticeable than at al- jH
most any previous phase of the war. ,
