Excitement in St. Petersburg.
Tho news of the occupation of IviaoYang
and tho withdrawal of tho Russian
array to the right bank of tho
Taltso river reached only a small section
of the people of St. Petersburg at
a late hour Thursday night and caused
intense excitement and disappointment.
Tho majority of the Inhabitants
retired to rest, believing that Russian
arms had again been successful and
that the Japanese attacks had been repelled.
Ugly suspicions, however, had
boen rife during the day, owing to tho
absence of press telegrams from I^laoYang,
leading to tho bellof that the
communications had been cut by GenI
oral Kuroki.
The following statement was obtainj
ctl by the Assocated Press from the
war office at 10 o'clock p. m.:
"General Kurokl'a army crossed in
force to the right bank of the Taitse
river and it, therefore, became necossary
for the Russian:* to be in a posi|
tion to repel a blow in this direction.
| "In view of this development in tne
i operations General Kuropatkin decided
to abandon his positions on the left
bank and to concantrate his whole army
on the other side of the river. This
position is the strongest, both in character
and in site. The great issue will
be finally decided there.
"Ry withdrawing to this position the
Russian array avoids the danger of being
divided by the river and enjoys
the advantage of compactness.
"General Ivuropatkln's move, there*
fore, is not to be considered as a re
I treat, but rather as the carrying out
of a well-defined Idea."
The News from Tokio.
A Tokio dispatch of Thursday night
says: At daybreak the Japanese army
j un the left delivered a fierce and successful
assault against the heights to
| the west of Hsinlingtun and the high
i ground to the west of Shushanpao. It
pitrr-ed the Russian lines and later
forced the, retirement, of the Russian
! troops from their position on the right
! and center. MarquTs Oyama telegraphs
that his losses in these as1
saults were he ivy. It believed that

Jap3 Caught in Pitfalls.
The battle Wednesday was of the

continuously from dawn until mid|

been imraon jo.

ors them with tho intention of inspiring
the garrison an 1 the troops to tho
emulation of heroic deeds.
Following a grand three days' assault
upon the defenses of Port Arthur,
th?j Japanese rested during tho
day time of August 23. At 11 o'clock
that night they concentrated a strong
force to attack Zardodoul fort, which
j Is a strong position on the Rusian
! right flank. The Japanese made clevi
er u.so of the available cover, creeping
1 forward in Indian fashion for mi<>
j hour, in spite of the Russian tiro. Mid,
night found them properly formed
I within striking distance of the fort I{
lications. They then made a powerful
| rush, hut were mowed down in all
but one quarter. Here a body of Japanese
succeeded in entering the fort,
over the dead 'bodies of their comrades.
but nearly all were bayonetted
inside the fort. The remainder retreated,
losing heavily as they fle-l.
After repulsing the enemy the Russian
troops cheered.
The Japanese searchlights showed
ghastly heaps of dead, like magic lan|
tern pictures.
The Japanese were soon reinforced
; and recommenced the attack furiously,
but again were repulsed. The Novl
i Krai soberly asserts that, the Japanese
troops were forced forward by
their own shrapnel (ire, the gens having
been placed behind them to pre
