Speaking of the placard nuisance in I

more and more obnoxious, the Herald
in a recent editorial says:
"Wo iiood a crusader against the

Surely it is high time that sorno
united action be taken to put an end
to this abuse. The metropolitan newspapers
could speedily bring about a
reform, and by doing so they would
gain the lasting gratitude of a long?

PORT NOW DOOMED

BESEIGERS CONFIDENT
iricis Reached Through Success of
Mikado's Indomitable Forces
Gaining Vulnerable Shelling
Positions.
Port Arthur is doomed. The correspondent
of the Associated Press at
'he Foo has received information, ih?
K/tllnUtlli ? ... 1. i ...
i i;n<iuiiiLj u; ? men IJU^UIIU quuttiiuu,
that the Japanese are now occupying
positions which place the cast side of
the town at their mercy.
The lust assault lias gained important
positions which insure their ability
to enter the main east forts whenever
they arc ready.
"The Japanese calculate that if the
Russians do not surrender now, they
will bo capable of prolonging the iightiug
by making then flnal stand ai'
Liati promontory and Tiger's Tail for
a month longer with the mere hope of
continuing t!ic struggle.
'"Long before the- second Pacific
squadron arrives in the Pacific the
Japanese Hag, it is now believed, will
wave over the wrecked citadel."
This will end Viceroy Alexieff's
dream of an unconquerable city.
The Japanese have not occupied the
main fails and highest points r>i cast
hills, but they occupied in overwhelming
numbers positions which will enable
them to drive the Russians back
whenever they desire.
When the Japanese occupy the east
port ridge they will completely dominate

The authorities state they are
without direct news from Fort Arthur,
and everyone is depending upon foreign
service for tidings of the devoted
garrison. Nothing of importance lias
developed ;tt the region of Mukden.
Detailed reports of the operations
against Port Arthur indicate that the
prolonged attack is nearing its end
and that the .Japanese are now enter
itig upon the Inst stage of the memorable
siege. l'"or ilit' first time tho
Associated Pro s correspondent with
General Xogi's army has been permitted
to send dispatches direct from
Port Arthur, and these show that practically
all the outlying defenses are in
the hands of the Japanese, who are
sanguine of immediate victory. The
armies of Oyama and Kuropatkin still
confront each other along the Shnkhe
river, inactive, except for skirmishes
and artillery < x( auges.
