the big forts guarding the north,
northeast and northwest sides of the
town is seriously threatened. Chinese
Information piaces the Japanese losses

Possibly the most Important capture
during the three days" fighting was
that of Fort Kuropatkln, which, while
of minor value with regard to pre

the Japanese, has been constructed
for the purpose of protecting the
source ot the garrison's water supply.
The control of this water supply is
now in the hands of the Japanese.

turn out to be merely a rear fcuard
