A Terrific Bombardment on the
Forts at Port Arthur by
THEIR LOSSES WERE YERy HEAVY
The Indications Are That the Final
and Successful Engagement is
About to Commence.
Many Experts Do Not Expect a Decl-
6ive Engagement Near Mukden
, Before Spring Foreign At
taches Returning Home.
London, Nov. 4. The Dally Tele
igraph's Che Foo correspondent, tele
graphing Thursday, says that the Jap
anese losses during the last assault
on Port Arthur were heavier than on
;any of the previous attacks. The
.bombardment, he says, was so fierce
ithat the streets of Dalny were said to
'tremble as though from an earthquake.

Gen. Oku, under date of November 2,
says that tho indications arc that a
terrific engagement is about to com
mence. Berlin, Nov. 4. The Lokal Anzel
ger's Mukden correspondent claims
the most trustworthy authority for the
statement that 34,000 sick or wounded
Russian soldiers were sent away after
the last engagement.
Col. Gaedke, the Tageblatt's corre
spondent with the Russian army, tele
graphs that the Russian positions on
the Shakhe river are daily becoming
stronger in spite of the proximity of
the opposing army. The possibility
of a Japanese attack, Col. Gaedke
adds, is constantly diminishing and
many experts do not expect that there
will be a decisive engagement before
spring. The two Spanish attaches are
returning home, and others probably
will follow soon.
Che Foo, Nov. 3. Port Arthnr is
doomed. A press correspondent here
has received information, the reliabil
ity of which is beyond question, that
the Japanese now occupy positions
which place the east side of the town
at their mercy. The last assault has
gained for them positions which in
sure their ability to enter the main
east forts whenever they are ready.

wave over the wrecked citadel. This
will end Viceroy Alexieff's dream of
nn unconquerable city.

der, possibly more shocking than that
of Lulu Mueller, had been committed,

the head, led to the spot where the
Thero were two significant things
discovered. Tho first was that her

St Louis, Nov. 4. The airship of
Capt. T. S. Baldwin, which suddenly
slipped away Wednesday night as it
was being towed in from the country
to the aeronautic concourse, was found
Thursday 16 miles west of St. Louis.
It was unharmed by Its wild night
flight, save for two .small rents in the
gas bag, which Capt. Baldwin stated
could be repaired in half an hour.
When the "Arrow" escaped there
was just enough gas to lift the craft
well off the ground. Inventor Baldwin
expressed his belief at the timo that
the cold night air would condense tho
gas rapidly and cause the airship to
come down in the vicinity of St. Louis.
After floating in the wind for 10 miles
the airship cam down to within a
short distance of the ground and her
anchor ropes became entangled in tho
dead limb of a tree. This served as
an anchor and the airship was found
so moored In a cornfield by farmers.
Word reached Baldwin late in the
day that his airship had been found.
He and Aeronaut Knabenshue hurried
to the scene In an automobile, and
were rejoiced to find the aerial craft
uninjured with the exception of two
small tears in the balloon.
The balloon was deflated and after
negotiations had been completed with
a farmer the collapsed airship was
loaded on to a hay wagon and brought
back to the exposition aerodrome.
Capt. Baldwin stated Thursday
night that he expected to have the air
ship in readiness for a flight by Sat
