PETERSBURG IK SfAIt or GREAT ANXIETY Battle Which Will Determine Fate of Camp aign in Manchuria is Expected to Take Place Any Moment [Special Dispatch to Daily Alaskan.] St. Petersburg, June 9.? The reports of sorties and attacks upon Port Arthur, coming from foreign sources, have caused the liveliest interest here. The government, not having means of com munication with the fortress, adepts the reports with relfcrve. The anthor ities generally believe the reports from Port Arthur of the march of events at that place are too rapid for truth. The tension over the situation at the theater of war is increasing. The gen eral staff is becoming more reticent and the public is convinced that an im portant battle which may decide the fate of the campaign is impedding. The engagements of the outposts of the main armies under Gen. Kuropat kin and Gen. Kuroki have suddenly ceased. Such a lull frequently occurs with armies just before they are ready to strike a blow with all their pent up strength. Jap L'? I? GrowInK Tokio, June 9.?
