It is nuderstood that the Chinese Ad miral last night discovered the pres ence of tho JapanSic torpedo-bo.it de tlrovers, and presented the same de mands to them that he Jud earlier given to the Russian destroyer Kye shitelni, namely, either to leave port or disarm, hut nothing came of the demand at the time. Darkness prevented a close inspec tion of the Japanese destroyers, but outwardly they appeared to be In good condition. A Japanese oflicer who was talking over the side of one of the vessels with the correspondent of the Associated Press was repri manded by a superior officer and com pelled to cease. This action is in strik ing contrast with the frankness of Captain Shestakovsky of the Uveshi telnl. The passongeis of tiie Rjeshitelni in clude two women, one of whom, it is s.iid, is the wifo of General Stoessel. This, however, is denied. It is evident that giave reasons caused the Ryeshitelni to undertake her hazardous voyage. Presumably, she came here to hie urgent dis patches. JAP CRUISL'R IMPORTED SUNK. Chcfoo, Aug. 11.

Vladivostok, Aug;, if. Preparations ale Lelng completed here for tho reception and protection of the Forf Arthur squad ron. The departure of the rquadron from I'ort Arthur ii generally Interpreted to indi cate that the siege of the fortress is en tering on It final stare, at the programme has repeatedly been announced by the As sociated Press for the squadron to leave & soon as the situation at I'ort Arthur became desperate. The preservation of the squadron Is con sidered to be vital to Russia's future flans, and, while it is acknovv ledc.ed that Its departure will greatly weaken the de fenive power of the garrh"on. without the capture of the squadron the fall of the fortress would be robbed of much of Its strategic Importance. The smaller ships probably were left behind on account of their slow spced and inadequate fighting power, while the torpedo-boat destrovers would constitute a constant menace to the Japanese cflet outside. Definite news- of the result of the report ed battle outside Port Arthur is awaited lure with feverish anxiety. F.vcn if the squadron succeeded in getting through tho Japanese nhips, it Is realized that it runs a desperate rlk In trjlng to rcanh Vladi vostok, as Admiral Togo's fleet is larger, of superior strength and faster than the Itusslan squadron. Besides, the Straits of Korea arc understood to be mined. The Port Arthur squadron is under the command of Rear Admiral Wlthoeft, The report that Vice Admiral Bezobrazoft ha,d taken over the command of that squadron is untrue. The latter Is now- 111 at Vladi v ostok. As the speed of a squadron Is not faster than that of the slovvefct unit, which in this case is the Poltava, which could not at her best make over sixteen knots, that ppecd Is tho estimated rate of steaming of tho Port Arthur squadron, whereaa the Japanese battleships have eighteen knots STAGE OF SIEGE IS VERY NEAR speed Both sqimlroti" bovvr have probiblj gratly ilttinoraUd in cd WOMEN CARRY WATER TO SOLDIERS IN TRENCHES; SHELLS FALL EVERYWHERE.
