HOT TIME AT OALNEY Japanese fleet force entrance to the har bor and while they bombard town 20,000 soldiers attack in rear. [Special Dispatches to Daily Alaskan.] Chicago, May 17. ? A special to the Chicago News from Chefoo says when the Daily News dispatch boat Fawn arrived off Dalney early yesterday morning a heavy bom bardment was in progress. As the channel was thickly mined by the Russians and as the Japanese Admiral Kattukao had issued orders that non-comatants' boats be excluded, it was impossible to get within the roadstead, hence accurate reports of the proceedings were impossible. However, it is known that an armored cruiser, the Yakumo, four other cruisers, one gunbdat and one battleship having cleared the channel entered the harbor shortly after daylight, and began heavy firing which was still in progress at noon. It is estimated that 20,000 Japanese were investing town, and there is every reason to belseve that they have been successful. and are now in possession of the town It is understood the landing of the second Japanese army was completed yesterday and there are now 50,000 Japanese troops on the Lioatung peninsula.
