THREE DAYS FIGHT
Terrific and Continuous Bom
bardment on the Eastern
Itidjrcs at Port Arthur.
THE JAPANESE INFANTRY CHARGED
They Were Checked, However, by the
Big; Moats and the Terrible
Their Ranks Were Rapidly Depleted
Notwithstanding a Clever Covering
Fire of Japanese Artillery
Casualties About 2,000.
London, Nov. 16. Tho Daily Tele
graph's correspondent with tho Jap
anese army before Port Arthur during
the attack of the Japanese on the east
ern occupied ridges on October 30,
Bays: The terrific and continuous
bombardment, night and day, from Oc
tober 27 to October 30, culminated in
wonderful practice, quite beyond criti
cism. With appalling rapidity count
less bursting shells mingled their
smoke Into a dense, oscillating mass of
vapor laden with earth and gleaming
with flashes of fire, the climax being
reached at 1 o'clock with a tremen
dous fire of shrapnel across the bro
ken breastworks of the fortresses
Suddenly every gun ceased fire and
the Japanese Infantry rushed out from
l heir parallels ere the hills had ceas
ed reverberating with the thunder of
the canonade from seven separate
quarters against the Rlhlung, Keek
wan and Panlung fortified ridges. The
attack was simultaneously developed
with a single premonitory feint, fully
4.000 troops dashed out pell mell with
fixed bayonets, waving standards and
rending the air with shouts of "ban
zai." The correspondent details how the
various Japanese attacks were check
ed by the big moats and the terrible
Russian fire, wWch rapidly depleted
their ranks notwithstanding a clever
covering fire of Japanese artillery,
"It was most remarkable, even In
credible, but fully substantiating sur
mises of their ability to withstand the
fire of the heaviest Japanese ordnance
how the Russians, despite the previ
ous bombardment, replied from their
fortress guns, although over 1,800 500
pound shells had been fired that day,
not counting thousands of smalled pro
The Attack Abandoned.
Before half an hour had elapsed, and
after losing 600 men, the Japanese
abandoned he attack against the
South Keekwan fort.
By 4 o'clock the Japanese fire had
diminished in intensity and the as
saults ceased shortly before sunset,
when fire broke out in the new town
of Port Arthur; and at nightfall the
Japanese opened a shrapnel fire on
tho eastern ridge to cover the retire
ment of their isolated assaulters,
whose situation was critical, between
the east and the south Keekwan forts.
The total Japanese casualties exceed
Russian Positions Unmasked.
"Although the assaults failed In the
capture of the main objective they ab
solutely unmasked the eastern Rus
sian positions and their strength. The
casualties are relatively small for al
though seven regiments were engaged,
not half the troops issued from the
parallels owing to the attacks being
so skilfully manipulated and finally
ceasing without supports being util
ized. For strength the Russian posi
tion was unassaultable and It would
have been useless to endanger double
the force and Incur double the casu
alty In the, same assault.
"After dusk the Russians sortled
and recovered the ground lost be
tween the east and south Keekwan
forts They recovered the P fort at
10 o'clock In the evening, 'but Gen.
Iclnoye gallantly restored the hill and,
despite 250 casualties, expelled the
Russians by sheer dash and courage."

Central Body at New Orleans
Censured For Boycotting a
Union Lauor Paper.
THE DOYCOT MUST BE REMOVED,
Unions Cautioned to Be More Conser
vative Relative to Placing Firms
on the Unfair List.
It Wrs Recommended That Such Cases
Be Referred to the Federation,
Which Would Then Thor
San Francisco, Nov. 16. At the ses
sion of the American Federation of
Labor Tuesday the central labor body
of New Orleans was censured by the
That organization boycotted a union
labor paper of the city because of an
expression of opinion on the part of
the editor. This was styled by the
council as a violation of a free press
and a fundamental principle of union
ism, and the New Orleans body was
given 30 days In which to remove the
boycott or the alternative of having
its charter revoked.
Unions everywhere were cautioned
to be more conservative in their ac
tions relative to placing firms on tho
unfair list. It was recommended that
such cases be referred to the federa
tion, which would then thoroughly, in
vestigate tho boycott.
The situation In Colorado was re
ferred to as "shocking" and a deter
mination was expressed to aid the
Western Federation of Miners, both
morally and financially, In the efforts
to have the matter brought before the
highest court In the land for final ad
judication. The report concluded by
urging all union men to work persist
ently to the end that an antl-injunc-tlon
bill, eight-hour law and measures
to regulate convict labor and enforce
Chinese exclusion might be passed by
Brewery Workers' Trouble.
One of the principal contentions re
ferred to by the committee was that
existing between the brewery work
ers and the International Association
of Firemen and Engineers, which the
council recommended be submitted to
a special committee to be composed
of two members from each union In
volved and a like number of repre
sentatives from the American Federa
tion of Labor. It was pointed out that
most of the trouble between these or
ganizations arose from the Idea en
tertained by the brewery workers that
by complying with the demands of
the engineers and firemen the life of
the Brewery Workers' union was
threatened. The ultimatum of the
council was that unless the latter or
ganization recognized the provisions
of the constitution of tho American
Federation of Labor and allowed en
gineers and firemen employed In brew
eries to come under the jurisdiction of
their respective organizations before
the end of the present session no at
tention would be paid to the brewers'
petitions to place firms on the unfair
list, that tho firms so listed by the
brewers would not be recognized as
such by the American Federation of
Labor and that brewers' label would
not bo considered by the federation.
The matter of seating William
Schardt, president of the Chicago Fed
eration of Labor, came up when the
committee on credentials recommend
ed that he have no voice in the pro
ceedings. An amendment to tho re
port was carried over the head of the
committee, however, which postponed
consideration of the case. A fight be
tween the representatives of the boil
ermakers and structural iron workers
was likewise postponed.
At the afternoon session Michael
Davltt, who was in the hall, was rec
ognized and call to the platform. Ho
made a short speech, expressing his
sympathy with organized labor, and
was loudly applauded.
