TERMS OF SURRENDER ARE FIXED
Following General Stoessol's Commun
ication to General Nogi, Commis
sioners Representing the Two Com
manders Met at 4 O'Clock Monday
Afternoon and Subsequently Signed
Articles of Capitulation.
Port Arthur, whose hills have for
months run red with the blood of the
bravest of the two war-like nations,
has at last succumbed to the fierce
tenacity of the Japanese attack. Gen
eral Stoessel, most stubborn in carry
ing out the will of his sovereign, has
seen the advance of the-besieging army
gain in momentum and energy until to
hold out longer wculd have been a
.crime against humanity. The conditions
uf the surrender are not yet known,
but in all quarters it is anticipated
that they are such as an honorable sol
dier may accept from a brave and vic
At 9:45 o'clock Sunday night the
commissioners completed the siuging of
the capitulation agreement. Eoth
armies had suspended hostilities five
hours earlier. The city of Port Ar
thur will be occupied by the Japanese.
The authorities at St. Petersburg, in
the absence of direct official nows
V from General Stoessel that Port Ar
thur has surrendered, have not per
mitted the news to become public. Em
peror Nicholas is in the south ofRus
si?, and his Ministers are for the time
bping in the dark as to what dis
patches have been sent to him from
Tokio was the scene of rejoicing,
people of all ranks finding in the out
come compensation for all the sacri
fice of life and money that was en
tailed in the ten months' siege.
To what extent the fall of Port Ar
thur will make for a restoration of
peace is an open question. There is an
encouraging note in the expression by
Baron Hayashi, Japanese minister at
London, of the hope that "in some way
it will facilitate final peace," though
the pacific note is perhaps lost in tne
later words of the minister, whicn call
attention to the fact that the besieging
army will now be free to go north,
where it will be an offset to the rein
forcements General Kuropatkin has
been receiving from Russia since the
battle of Shakhe. The spirit of the
Russians may be judged by the state
ment of the secretary of the embassay
at London that the campaign will be
renewed with fresh vigor in the spring,
and that the nation will not be content
to permit Port Arthur to remain in the
hands of the Japaese.
Both in Paris and in London the
opinion is that the squadron under
Vice- Admiral Rojestyensky, which
^-?t?rted from Libau for the far East
three months ago, wjll have to retrace
its way home, as adherence to th9
original plans would invite disaster
without probabllitiy of effecting a junc
tion with the warships at pres2nt in
the harbor of Vladivostock. That Japan
may not be permitted to retain pos
session of Port Arthur without dist ut?,
is shown in the fact that Paru news
papers are already reviving the claim
made in 1901 that the holding of that
position commanding the Eastern seas
by the Japanese would be a menace
to European powers.

zow, of the Russian torpedo boat de
stroyer Vlastni, which arrived here

You spoke to them, but they did not
Igive answer, only staring dumbly.
j "The lack of ammunition alone
j would have suggested the seeking
j cf terms. Scant ammunition had long
been common in thc fortress, and dur
ing the past month many of the forts
had nothing with which to return the
fire of the enemy.
"The Russians sat in the casemates,
firing not more than once to the two
hundred shots sent by the Japanese.
When the assault came they repulsed
the enemy with bayonets. But the
men themselves, having existed for
three months on reduced rations, were
so worn that it is marvelous they
stood the final strain so long.
"Yesterday General Stoessel would
still fight. His wound, which was re
ceived early in the siege, had been
bothering him, but his determination
to.fight while one man stood had not

erals. 'Our men cannot move. They

'Ile seemed fanatical on the sah

reason by the insistence of his subor
dinates. Admirals Lochiusky and
Wiren, Generals Smirnoff and Fock,
I and many other:. sometimes with
broken voices, urged the step which
all dreaded so long.
"The greatest loss suffered by Port
ArtU'-j occurred a fortnight ago, when
Major General Krondratenko was
Kwied. Officers and men alike re
garued him as the brightest star in
lort Arthur's firmament. When his
death became known^ the~?ali -itt the

rifle bullets were seldom found to be
of any use.
''We who came here Monday do not
know the terms of surrender sugest
ed by General Stoessel to General Nogi
ncr the answer, having left Port Ar
thur even before the messenger had
been dispatched. The general impres
sion, however, is that Stoessel has
proposed that the army shall go free
and that he alone be made a prisoner.
"It is a simple story. Had thc am
munition held out the fortress would
have held out indefinitely. For months
we held Pert Arthur by baj-onets
alone, until flesh and blood could do
no more. When a man fell there was
none other to replace him. Thus the
garrison was gradually worn down.
Two hundred and Three-Meter Hill
alone cost us five thousand men. The
capture of that hill was the beginning
of the end."
Tokio Wildly Joyous.
Tokio, By Cable.-Tokio is wildly
joyous over Gen. Nogi's teelgram an
nouncing that Gen. Stoessel had sent
a letter relating to the surrender of
Port Arthur. News boys crying ex
tras were the center of large crowds.
The people grabbed the papers and re
peated the cries. Thus was the news
carried throughout the city, and with
in a few minutes the firing of aerial
and daylight rockets began in various
?part3 of the city. Bands appeared and
a score of small processions formed
and surged through the principal
streets. Japan has paid a heavy price
for the Russian fortress. The pros
pect of its early posession cheered the
people as no other t vent of the war
has done. The Lmperor's New Year's
