LANDING PLACE WAS MINED RUSSIANS HAD PREPARED TO BLOW UP INVADING JAPA- NESE SOLDIERS. Shanghai, April 6A Japanese cor respondent states that the whole Japa nese plan of campaign has been changed because it was disclosed tc the Russians by a Japanese officer who is now awaiting trial.

The Russians apparently are prepar ed to pay large sums for information concerning the movements of the Japanese army. They bought one Japanese map, it is said, for 40,000 General Pflug telegraphs from Muk 'den denying that there is a single Japanese soldier in Manchuria. ANXIOUS FOR OPERATIONS.

The natives pro vide provisions freely and are selling horses brought from the surrounding country. TI*e mandarins are an ex ception to this general rule as they are cautions and are trying to carry wa ter on both shoulders. As their con duct is passive, it does the Russians no harm. The railroad holds out splendidly and works regularly. "Sentries are posted at the boundary and are doing duty in the neutral zone dividing China and Manchuria The weather is warm and the rivers are open. In Port Arthur all is quiet and its inhabitants have become accustom ed to a state of war, though some of them are impatient that the enemy has been for so long a time invisible TONGHAKS ARE TROUBLESOME.
