IN STOESSEL SAYS
General Who Commanded and
Lost Port Arthur Absolved of
HAD RECEIVED ORDERS
TO TURN OVER COMMAND
Interesting Secrets of Russian
Army Exposed at Court Mar
tial; Kuropatkin Wanted
Port Arthur Abandoned',
ST. PETERSBURG, December 18.
Lieutenant General Stoessel' was ac
quitted today of having shown the
white feather under firo on two different
occasions. The accusation was made by
Col. Gurke, who was on the stand before
the court martial which was trying tho
general for alleged failure to properly
defend Port Arthur. At that moment
the court was investigating the circum
stances of Kuropatkin 's order in which
Stocsscl was told to turn over command
of the fortress to General Smyrnoff and
loin the Manchurian army. StoesscI
disregarded tho order and it was re
ncatcd three times, ffe suprpssed the
copy of the order addressed tq Sinyrpqff
ond finally was allowed to remain at
Kuropatkin testified that early In
May doubts had arisen to the fitness
of Stocssel to command the fortress ow
ing to his nervousneds. Tho idea was
strengthened by a communication sent
my Smyrnoff to his aide, Colonel Gurke,
that Stocssel was a coward and was
apt to loso his head during an assault,
and that it might bo necessary to placo
him under arrest to prevent the fall of
the fortress. Kuropatkin after obtain
ing confirmatory details of tho state
ment from Gurke, sent an order super
Kan to Shelter.
Apsw.cring Stopssej's qugry as 'to
whnt grounds he had fqr makjng sucj
a statement to Kuropatkin, Gurkp re
lated two Instances in which Stoossul
had ordered his staff to scatter under
fire, himself heading n dash for shelter.
Colonel Golevnn, who wns In chargo
of tho coding of tho messngo to Port
Arthur, established tho receipt by Stoes-
fcc of Kuropatkin 's orders, lie sam
lie gavo tho order for Smyrnoff to as
sume command of tho fortress to Gen
era Pciss, who after conferring with
Stoessel directed him to remove tho
copy from the" flies and suppress tho rec
ord thereof. Only flvo men in the
fortress know of the order and tho tes
timony brought to light tho surprising
fact that Kuropatkin before tho war
had recommended the abandonment of
Port Arthur niid' tlm rostoratfgn of the
Kwang-Tunk peninsula to tlie uiinesjj,
who wero to pay $123,000,000 for If.
He considered that tho opening of Port
Dalny destroyed tho strategic import
anoo of Port Arthur. Kuropatkin said
ho finally decided not to intoifcro with
Stoessel on nccouut of' his unexpected
success in holding the fortress, which
tlicorcjLically require1 189,000 men tg

Canal Will Be Completed;
Goethals Must Take a Long
WASHINGTON, December 18. "The
engineers of the Panama canaLcomniis
sion are perfectly willing that tho locks,
should bo widened to any extent the
navy thinks necessary. We shall in a
measure leave it to the navy to settle
the question, theroby making it a mat
ter of naval expediency as to how wide
the locks shall be."
This will be the attitude which the
canal commission will take on tho prop
osition referred to tho members for the
widening of locks to 110 or 120 feet
as may seem best, according to the
statement made today by George W.
Goethals, chairman of the commission.
Goethals saj-s that as far as known
at present, thp width- of 10Q feet for
tfio locks will accommodate mercantile
shipping for years to como and that 100
feet is ample for all naval construction
now building. Tho less lowny a boat
has in the lock, Goethals thinks, the
safe is both boat and lock.
Will Bo No Detriment.
It is declared that tho commission is
ready to do whatever tho president and
his naval advisers think best, as the
work is in such shape that to increase
tho width can bo done without detri
ment to tho work. Tho completion of
tho Qatun dam will dctorminp tho time
for the complptitnq of tho ontiro canal.
Thp wqr,k on tho dam has begun, but
an investigation is still in progress to
determine the localities frqm which suit
able material can bo obtained for tho
construotlon, The time for completing
tho Culobra cut and locks can bo ac
curately figured out tho only unknown
factor being tho time for the dam. It
is tho purpose to reduce tho excavation
in Culebra cut to a limited amount
monthly so as to bring about tho com
pletion of all parts of the canal at
tho samo time.
