Fierce Struggle for Posses

Liaoynnp, June .'!.Another jjreat
battle is in progress near Port Ar
thur. Continuous cannonading is
heard from the .south ami the Japanese
land "and naval forces are believed to
be bombarding the city.
Fifteen thousand Japanese have
landed at Takushan.
St. Petersburg, June -It enn safe
ly be predicted that tho-Russian squad
ron at Port Arthur will hot wait until
the" last moment before going out". The
admiralty seems to entertain no fear,
if the situation there becomes desper
ate, that the squadron will lie caught
like a rat in a trap. Rear Admiral
Wittsoeft's dispatch given out Wednes
day gave assurances -on this point. A
portion which was nm made public
said that every ship except the l'oonce:
bieda was now ready to no to sna At a
moment's notice and that the.channel
was cleared, lie confirmed the belief
which existed here that Uic.Jainuiese

to the stuff ot (icueral Fock and was

regarding the fighting a Kinchou an".i
the situation at Tort Arthur. A Ion-.
dispatch is n being deciphered ill
the war office.
According l"o information In-posses
slot) of the general staff the enemy has
five divisions and live reserve COUM.
'about 80,000 men. on the Liaotung
peninsula and at-least seven divisions
and seven reserve oirs or about 12tv
U00 men, in Southern Maru lniiia.
Although the impression prevailed
among the members of the general
staff that General Kuroki's purpose
was to make feints to prevent. General
Kuropatkin from moving, but nm to
attack him until the result of the cam
paign against Port Arthur |s ttetef
mined, there is now apparently ino.r
inclination to think he will try a
demonstration in force, .which mlghl
result in a decisive engagement. Th
Japanese commander is co'i&taiitly
shifting his columns hmk and forth
to conceal his real purpose, the late-d.
reports received being thai he hu?
