It a Second Port Arthur.
Che Foo, Nov. 7. As tho result of
months of preparation Vladivostok Is
now strongly protected, according to
Capt, Halversen, of the Norwegian
steamer Tungues, which arrived here
five days out from that port with 700
Chinese refugees who wore unable to
live at vradivoBtok any longer owing
to the high prices of food and other
necessaries due to the war.
Capt. Halversen says the Vladivo
stok system of fortifications begins
many miles outside tho city proper
and grows stronger as tho city Is ap
proached. Ships laden with food, cannon, am
munition and all sorts of military sup
plies frequently arrive at Vladivostok.
The European residents of Vladivo
stok show their confidence In the se
curity of the city by evidencing an un
willingness to leave it.

capture Vladivostok it is the belief of
Capt. Halversen that they will find it
to be a second Port Arthur.

has been mined for a distance of some
seven miles. In four miles of this
area, contact mines have been laid
while In the remaining three miles
electric mines havo been planted.

THE AIRSHIP RACES
Greatest Demonstration in the
History of the World Will
Take Place at St. Louis.
FIVE MACHINES TO TAKE PART.
In Principle of Propulsion the Air
ships Vary as Widely as
They Bo in Size.
Winning Time Will Be the Average of
Three Best Trips, Provided This
Average Be at Least 20
Miles An Hour.
St. Louis, Nov. 7. Unless the weath
er conditions interfere tho greatest
demonstration of airships in the his
tory of the world will take place at
the World's fair aeronautic concourse
beginning Tuesday. '
Housed in tho aerodrome are five
flying machines, embodying as many
different principles and varying in size
from tho monster airship invented and
built by Hippolyte Francois, of Paris,
France, with its immense gas bag con
taining C5.000 cubic feet of hydrogen
gas, to the comparatively small bal
loon belonging to a. L. Reynolds, of
Los' Angeles, Cal., which, when fully
Inflated, has a capacity of only 5,000
In principle of population, the air
ships vary as widely as they do in
size. 'Two of them come to the
World's fair with records of success
ful flights, one of which, tho Baldwin
"California Arrow," has demonstrated
here on two occasions that it is dlrL
glble and not dependent upon currents
of air for its momentum.
Tuesday the first flight Is scheduled
In the contest for the grand prize of
$100,000 offered by the Louisiana pur
chase exposition under the following
Course to be "L" shaped, start to bo
made at the angle of tho "L" and the
length of the full course not less than
ten miles nor more than 15.
Number of trials allowed unlimited,
but each competitor must make the
full course at least three times.
"The winning time shall be the av
erage of the three best trips, provided
that this wverage time be at least 20
miles an hour.
The last qualification has so far
proved the stumbling block to the va
rious aeronauts now. at the World's
fair. They claim that the rate of
speed prescribed is excessive and im
possible to attain for so great a dis
tance. Capt. Baldwin has announced that
he will make a flight either Monday
or Tuesday, and while his machine
will not cover the prescribed course
as a contestant for the grand prize.
Capt. Baldwin will Instruct A. Roy
Knabenshue, of Toledo, O., his navi
gator, to sail over an arranged course
for a test of the speed h!s airship Is
capable of developing, and upon the
outcome of this trial will rest Capt.
Baldwin's entry for the grand prize.
