in renewing the fighting.
A detailed official report of the oper

PRESENT JAPANESE A&SAULTS
LIKELY TO RESULT IN FALL
OF PORT ARTHUR..
St. Petersburg, Nov. 3.The official
reports from Tokio describing the des
perate assaults on Port Arthur be
ginning Oct. 26 have created visible
depression at the war office. The sus
tained character of the bombardment
with siege guns and the breaching of

government after weeks of silence re

The war office is trying to buoy up
the Russian hopes with reference to
the long and successful defense Gen

but things have now reached such a
pass with the garrison and the char
acter of the present attempt upon the
fortress is evidently so determined that
the authorities frankly admit they

Tokio Reports Operations rn Front of
Tokio, Nov. 3.The official reports
of the Port Arthur operations since
Aug. 1 form a recital of almost contin
uous fighting of a desperate nature.
The Russians first struggled desper
ately to block every Japanese advance
and then met the concentrated artil
lery fire of the Japanese with its kind.
Latterly since the Japanese began run
ning parallels and traverses and ex
tending mines the Russians have been
constantly making sorties. They
rushed into the Japanese trenches and
engaged in ferocious struggles with the
engineers and pioneers. With desper
ate courage the Japanese continued to
close in upon the fortress, progressing
stage by stage. The Japanese infantry
never failed to respond when asked to
make an assault on almost impossible
positions and when the troops gained
a foothold they generally held it with

Assails the Government for Not Allay
ing Fears of War.
London, Nov. 3.Tuesday's attack of
nervousness due to misinformed state
ments in the London newspapers has
given way to extreme calm. The news
papers angrily assail the government
for leaving London-to wrestle with its
fears all day loi when a word would
have disposed of all the alarms and
they suggested that if the admiralty
would request Vice Admiral Lord
Charles Beresford to refrain from "sur
prise mobilizations" and other inter
esting maneuvers during the next few
days it would not only add to the
tranquillity of the country but would
smooth the way to a final settlement
of the dispute.

Russian agreement to submit the
North sea incident to a commission
insures an amicable settlement with
out a sequel. The understanding is
In the heat of the excitement follow
ing the incident many false impres
sions obtained credence abroad. Now
that the smoke has cleared away it is
possible to state that Great Britain
disclaimed any intention of trying to
detain the Russian squadron, which
could only be interpreted as a hostile
act. It was never intimated to Russia
that Vice Admiral Rojestvensky's re
call would be demanded and Great
Britain n&ver asked Russia to pledge
herself to the punishment of any one.
The British government fully realized
that officers of the Russian' squadron
may have acted with excess of zeal.
The whole affair was a deplorable mis
take, but as "a result of the inquiry,
which will establish the facts, each
government is expected to take appro
priate-action without demands from
either side and no pledgee have been
requested or given by either country.
