GEN. KUROKI APPEARS TO BE IN TROUBLE
St. Petersburg, May 26. ? There are indications that Gen. Kuropatkin is preparing
to make a very important movement against the enemy. One reason for this belief is the

ce was too rapid for their own good and the Russians have rounded in their army a sufli
cient force to render the position of the Japanese forces at the front extremely perilous.
