The victory of the Japanese let army

continued their steady advance. The
left wing of the lett army threatened
to envelop the Russian right, compell

anese artillery, including the batteries
captured from the Russians, did their
usual splendid work in shelling the
trenches and the retreating Russsians.
Mukden, Oct. 14.-The fighting has
raged today with the carno bitterness
as on the previous days of the engage
