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.
