Latest War News.
Chefno, November 3.-Port Arthur ia
doomed. Tho correspondent of tho
Associated Press here has received in
formation, the reliability of which is
beyond question, that tho Japanese
now occupy positions which place tho
east side of tho town at their morey.
The last assault, bas gained important
positions which insure their ability to
enter tho main east forts whenever
they are ready.
Ibo Japanese calculate that if tho
Rniuin',,, do not surrender now, they
will bo capable of prolonging the
lightinr by making ' jeir fluni stand
at Lei'i promontory and Tigers Tail
for a month longer with the mere hope
o? continuing tho struggle.
Long before tho second Pacilic
squadron arrives iu the Pacific, the ...
Japanese Hag, it is now believed, will
wave over tho wrecked citadel. i
This will end Viceroy AlexiefTs 4
dream of an unconquerable city. Tho
Japanese have not occupied the main i
forts and highest points of the east .
hills, but they occupied in overwhel
ming numbers positions which will en- <
able them to drive the Russians back
whenever they desire.
When tho Japanese occupy tho east
port ridge they will completely domi

Mukden, November 5.-The Russian }
and Japanese armies are now so close
together that manoeuvring is almost ]
impossible. The Japanese are confin
ing themselves to occasional night at
tacks, during which they shell the vil
lages occupied by the Russians. In
these attacks th y wounded several
Russian oUicers. In return parties of
Russians have penetrated the Japanese
villages at night, causing temporary
panics. On one occasion the Rus
sians succeeded in throwing two
bombs into tbe Japanese officers quar- j

November 0.-The positions ot the two '
armies aro unchanged. Tbe Russians
continue infrequent and ineffectual
bombardments, principally at night or
in the early morning, with heavy guns, .
I devoting their energies chiefly to tho *
I Japanese left, where the lines are
I nearer than elsewhere. - The Japanese
refrain from replying. There is a
sharp exchange, indicating lire some
where on tho line almost every night.
The cold weather of the past week
culminated today in a sharp wind and
flurries of snow. The ground is frozen
and the soldiers build few lires for
warmth, lest they draw the Russian
shots. They have remarkably and in
geniously well constructed shelters of

and at Sianobippu, in the Shakhe river
just weBt of the railway and 15 miles
south of - Mukden, the Japanese and
Russians occupy the extreme ends of
the same village. AtHuangBhants tho
Russian center has thrown advance
? posts across the Shakhe river. Both
i armies uro still strengthening their po
sitions all along the line. The slightest
movement on either Bide is the signal
for firing which occasionally occurred
all last night. Undoubtedly the most
decisive it not the greatest battle of
tho year will be fought in the vicinity
of the Shakhe river. The Russians
are confident of their ability to hold
their positions. The soldiers are
