RUSSIA CHANCES BASE
Manchurian army will operate from Liao
Yang as headquarters, instead of from
Mukden as in the past. New base is
nearer the frontier than the old.
[Special Dispatch to the Daily Alaskan.]
St. Petersburg, March 18 ? The first headquarters of the Russian- Manchuria army,
after Gen. Kapoupatkin's arrival in the east, will be at Liao Yang. That point has been
selected instead of Mukden for direct operations upon the Japanese. Liao Yang is 10
miles west of the railway and is connected with the main line of the road by a special
line. It is much nearer the Yalu river and the Korean frontier than is Mukden. Its re
tention by the Russians will also make secure from attack the line of railway, upon which
dependence is placed by the Russians for their supplies.
