HEADQUARTERS OF GEN. OKU'S
DEFT ARMY, OCT. 1G, VIA FUSAN,
Oct. IS. Since Sunday last the Japanese
lefe army has buried 4100 Russian dead.
It is estimated that the Russian casual
ties are from 20,000 to 25,000. The Japa
nese report their casualties at about
Early this morning the Japanese con
tinued to advance, driving the Russians
beforo them, and capturing two guns
and many rifles. At 7:30 o'clock this
morning tho Russians attempted to re
capture Lamutlng, but were repulsed
with heavy loss. Tho battle there is
Russians Utterly Defeated.
The way to Muukden is apparently
open. The last remnant of the Russian
forces on the plain north of Yental are
being driven out of their position by a
heavy shell fire. The Russians appear
to have been utterly defeated, at least
on the right flank. They are retiring
hastily, and It is hardly likely that they
will make another stand south of Muk
den, unless along the Hun river.
Japanese Strategy Successful.
The strategy of the Japanese ap
parently has been entirely successful,
and the co-operation of the left, center
and right armies has been perfect. The
battle began unexpectedly on Sunday
night, October 9, by an attack on a hill
five miles north of Yental, which the
Russians had begun to fortify. The
right column of the left army advanced
against this hill on that night and drove
the Russians out after a hand-to-hand
Terrific Artillery Duel.
On the same night the center and left
columns advanced and took up posi
tions In a lino of villages four miles
north of Yental, placing their artillery
and preparing for a conilict on Mon
day. On Monday morning the Japanese
began shelling the Russian positions.
The Russians answered briskly and a
terrific artillery duel was kept up all
day. At night, when it ended, the result
was not decisive. During the night the
Japanese infantry moved within fifteen
hundred yards of the Russian lines,
taking up a position along u line of vil
lages. Rain of Shrapnel.
During Tuesday the Japanese re
pulsed fierce Russian attacks, the Rus
sians three times dashing across- the
plain separating the two lines against
the Japanese trenches and recoiling
from the shock. All that day the field
guns of both sides poured shrapnel Into
the trenches, while the Infantry fired
almost continuous volleys across the
plain. The Russians lost heavily In the
attacks, the attackers being almost an
nihilated. During the night the Rus
sians withdrew for some 2000 yards, and
the Japanese took up an advanced po
sition at the same time.
Russian Battery Captured.
Early on Wednesday morning the
Russluns made an attempt to drive the
Japanese back but the attempt was
not successful. During the morning
the JaJpanese continued their steady
advance forward. At 2 o'clock In 'the
afternoon the Japanese made their last
rush, arriving at the Russian position
in disorder, but capturing the full bat
tery of eight guns. The whole force of
artillery of the left army was turned 011
the retreating Russians, causing much
havoc among them.
Russians Fought Bravely.
The left wing circled the Russians'
extreme right, forcing the Russian flank
back on the center and capturing twelve
guns in a desperate Infantry charge.
Tho Russians during the day fought
bravely, doing all that men could do,
but they were unable to check the ad
vance of the Japanese." The loss to the
Russians Is believed to far exceed those
of the Japanese as the results of the
day's lighting. The JaJpanese center
column captured four guns and the left
column took 10.000 rounds of gun aniu7
nitlon. The JaJpanese artillery re
peated the excellent precision it has
displayed In other battles. According
to their practice the JaJpanese used a
number of batteries captured from the
Brown Hen Move Forward.
Wednesday night and Thursday
morning tho whole left army advanced
between two and three miles, swinging
Its flank towards the railway and driv
ing the Russians to the hills parallel
with and east of the railway. In the
meantime the right army (Gen. KTu
rokl's) occupied a line In the high hills
to the East, cutting off the Russians.
Gen. Nodzu'n center army, which
formed the bottom of the net. movedo
forward. Both armies had severo
lighting, but they quickly carried out
their plans by slowly driving back and
encircling the Russians, capturing
guns, ammunition and men.

TIE TINS IN
World Given Surprise
Kuropatkin Has Resumed the
Offensive and Begun
Intended to Signalize Czarevitch's
Fete by Victory Like Nicholas
Did at Plevna,
ST. PETERSBURG, Oct. 19, 2:50 a. m.
There is jubilation throughout the
city over the news that Gen. Kuropat
kin has resumed the offensive, and the
holiday which began with little heart
closed brighter. The crowds In the
streets and the illuminations in honor
of the Czarevitch's name day gave a
tinge of brilliancy to an evening other
wise depressing, through a constant
drizzle of rain.
Russian Victory Announced.
Newsboys up to midnight raced
through the thoroughfares with eve
ning extras shouting. "Great Russian
victory' and crowds bought the papers
greedily. Groups of men in brilliant
uniforms or in evening dress at the
hotels and restaurants discussed the
change in the fortunes of war, but the
population as a whole were slow to take
fire. They had received the news of
tho earlier reverse stolidly, and now
accepted reports of Russian successes
and the capturo of guns quietly, with
satisfaction but with considerable re
serve. Bints From Correspondents.
Correspondents at tho front the past
forty-eight hours had been hinting
that the Russian army was on the eve
of another advance, but It wns thought
here that the troops were too exhausted
by more than a week of gigantic
struggle to engage in an immediate ad
vance movement. Therefore the news
of the definite resumption of the ad
vance was calculated to arouse tho
greater satisfaction, but the realization
of the significance of news permeates
the masses here more slowly than In
What Kuropatkin Proposed.
The kaleidoscopic changes on the
Shakhe river have been too swift for
the populace to follow, and so the bet
ter news from tho iront nas oeen
so far taken with comparative quiet. In
the best Informed circles, however, it is
already accepted as true. It Is believed
that Gen. Kuropatkin intended to sig
nalize the Czarevitch's fete by a ylc
tory, Just as Grand Duke Nicholas did
Aro Moving Forward.
The failure of the War office to give
out dispatches is attributed to the holi
day, the censor's commission disband
ing early. The Associated Press, how
ever, hears on good authority that tho
Emperor has received a telegram from
Gen. Kuropatkin reporting that the
Russians are moving forward.
Reverse by Yamada.
The reverse sustained by Gen.
Yamada's column has not yet been re
ported by Gen. Kuropatkin or Gen.
Sakharoff except In a reference to
an unsuccessful Japanese attack near
Shakhe. The Associated Press's Muk
den dispatch evidently refers to this af
fair in reporting that the Japnnese left
had been beaten off with terrible
slaughter and its retreat cut off by a
Russian army corps. Another dispatch
from Mukden confirms the howb of the
Russian advance when, telegraplling
late tonight, the correspondent says:
"It is rumored that wo are moving
Attack Wot Confirmed.
There Is no official confirmation here
of the report from Tokio that a Rus
sian attack on the Japanese right on
October 17 had been repulsed If this
report should provo true It may involve
serious consequences for the Russians
who crossed the Shakhe while the river
was fordable. According to Mukden
dispatches the water has since risen
man-high in consequence of heavy
rains, and therefore It would bo well
nigh Impossible for the Russian army to,
recross tho river, owing to the absence
of bridges. It would be equally difficult
for the fame reason to bring up sup
plies and ammunition to enable Gen.
Kuropatkin to follow up the advance.
LOSSES DURING BATTLE.
