()ct. 3.---lhe review by the viceroy, Aditral .AlrxielT on Sunday of 76,oo soldiers iarticipating in the maneuvers was the final act of la:.t week's "war game." This force was massed on the plains outside of the city. It included cavalry, infantry and artillery. Every infantry regimellt is partly mounted, in accordance with the recent regulations. Foreigners were given every oppor tunity to witness the display and the statc ment of otficers regarding the total force were verified by the count of the visiting experts. It was also officially announced that the entire force within easy operating distance of Port Arthur numbers 00oo.oo men. Two months ago it was 60,000 metI. Sunday's spectacle demonstrated that the reports regarding reinforcements arriving in Manchuria has underestimated the real Increase. An Object Lesson. The army assembled Sunday was greater than the Pekin diplomatists believed Rus sia's entire force in Manchuria to be. Of ficials here are taking pains to advertise Russia's strength and proclaim that the great maneuvers are intenuled as an object lesson. Admiral AlexieflT, speaking ot an Amer lean official said: "War would lie a great calamity. Here we believo that the bhet way to prevent it would be to strengthen ourselves as much as possible. 'l'lherefore, we have left no steps nntal:en for that purpose." The details of the maneuvers were kept secret, but the correspondent of the As sociated Press learned that the landing forces at Ta l.ien \Van bay were repulsed,. It is reported that the attacking army broke through Port Arthur's defense at three points. Two battleships and two cruisers are on their way here from Russia. When they arrive Russia's naval force at this station will be stronger than Japan's, according to the views of the Russian officers. Expect War. Anticipation of war is at a fever heat in the army and navy, but this is based en tirely on the activity of the preparations visible everywhere. The higher officials believe that Japan has been overawed by the demonstration on Russia's part. No steps toward the evacuation of Man churia have bcen taken. The official jour nal, the editor of which is a colonel on the viceroy's staff, says none will be taken. 'riThe governors of East Siberia are here consulting with the viceroy for the pur pose of arranging a new division of ter ritory beyond the Amur into three prov inces.
