St. Petersburg, Sept. 17. -The Rus
sian goverciuent has reached a deciaioo
in regard to coulraband that will prob
ab'y be satisfactory to the United
States and Great Ltritaio. The gov

and British view that Hour and bread
stuffs when addressed to private per
sons or firms in a treaty port are not in

naval commanders have been notified
of this decision.
. The decision wil! reverse the judg

[Special Dispatches to the Daily Alaskan.]
St. Petersburg, Sept. 17 ? Mukden dispatches say that the Japanese are again mov
ing out against the Russian flanks. According to information received through Chinese
sources, the Japanese will leave only a small garrison at Liaoyang, and they will advance
with the main force of their army and again take up the offensive.
This information is practicacally confirmed by the dispatches from Kuropatkin who
reports to the war office that the Japanese are massing on the Russian flanks and that a
force is concentrating at Betsiaputz, southeast of Mukden, and that another large force is
moving up the Liao valley. The greater part of the Japanese army is still near Yentai.
These dispositions of the Japanese forces that when they do advance, |they intend
to strike from the eastward.
ALMOST A PANIC AT MUKDEN
Mukden, Sept. 17 ? There is almost a panic here. The! word has been brought into
the city that the Japanese are approaching in force. The main Russian army has gone
forward to Tie pass and the merest little force remains here to prevent the Japanese to
capture this place. It is recognizad that any opposition that might be interposed at this
place to the Russian .advance would be futile.
TEMPER TERMS TO MEET CONDITIONS
[Special Dispatches to Daily Alaskan.]
Palis, Sept. 17 ? The Matin, newspaper, published today a long interview with the
Baron Havashi, Japanese minister at London, who says:
'?Before the war we only demanded that Russia recognize Chinese sovereignty in
Manchuria. Today after our great victories on land aud water and our vast expediturea,
we are no longer content with our former demands.
'?After the fall of Port Arthur, if peace be not arrived at before that time, the con
ditions will be still more extreme than those we would be williug to accept at this time.
"If after the fall of Port Arthur, the Russians shall not sue for peace and agree to
the terms that Japan may make, Vladivostock will be taken and then the terms will be
yet more extreme in the severity.
"The next battle will be fought at Tie pass, and we phall continue the hostilities
all winter.
"We have given up the idea of capturing Port Arthur by assault and will compel
! capitulation by famine. The fall of Port Arthur will release 50,000 men to reinforce the
i
! northern army that is operating against Kuropatkin, but we do not need the men just
now."
