Severity of Russian Defeat Hinges Largely an Ku rski's Wievement. Meaoger Reports Indicate That Sol diers of Both Armies Went to Limit Human Endurance. x TOKIO, Sept. 4. Field Marshal Oya ma, telegraphing today, says: "Alter the fighting of lost night and this morn ing Llao Tang fell Into our hands. Our casualties are believed to be very heavy. No report has been received concerning conditions on the right bank of tho Tal tse river." Depends Upon Kuroki. Beyond this dispatch from Field. Mar shal Oyama nothing further concerning the battle of Llao Tang has reached To klo today. Neither the number of Rus sians who succeeded In escaping north ward nor the number encompassed by Gen. Kuroki's turning movement Is known here. The severity of the Rus sian defeat hinges largely on Kuroki's movement. If successful, the nunfber of Russian prisoners will be large. Limit of Endurance. that the soldiers of both armies went to the limit of human endurance and suf fered terribly. It was impossible con stantly to supply them with food and water and the men have fought for days past starving and parched with thirst. Although full details are lacking, the duration of the fighting, the numbers engaged and the. losses so far reported, indicate that Lino Tang will prove to be one of tho greatest battles of history. The dispatch received from Field Mar shal Oyama announcing the fall of Llao Tang had the effect of cheering up. nil of the subjects of the MIkndo. Doiibt Concerning Prisoners) Throughout the rejoicings here fol lowing the earlier successes of Japanese arms at Llao Tang, the more thoughtful people feared the results of the exposure to which the right wing of Gen. Kuroki's army was subjected, and It was held possible that the strength of tho Llao Tang fortifications would permit the withdrawal of the bulk of the Russian forces there. Even now there Is doubt concerning the number of Russians who have escaped, but there Is no doubt about the character of the victory at Llao Tang. Tokio Is Illuminated. Toklo Is brilliantly Illuminated tonight and joyful crowds are parading the streets cheering the exploits of Field Marshal Oyama and Gens. Kurokl, Oku and Nodzu. STILL AFTER RUSSIANS.
