Surrender Now Appears to Be Inevitable. Chinese Army in Corea Completely Cut Off. The Last Telegram Says That Twelve Chinese War ships Were Disabled in a Fierce Con test. By the Associated Press. London, Sept. 19. There has been a battle between the Chinese and Japan ese naval fleets on the Yalu river. One Chinese and three Japanese warships were destroyed- -It was a victory tor the Chinese. The'Japanese claim they obtained their object in preventing the landing of the Chinese destined to re inforce the Chinese in Corea. Another report says the troops were success fully landed, but the Chinese lost five ships. A dispatch received from Shanghai, dated 7 :45 p. m. today, says : Later dispatches Bay twelve Chinese warships arrived yesterday at Fort Arthur for repairs. The dispatches iay that on Monday last a Chinese fleet, consisting of fourteen warships, arrived off the mouth of the Yalu river, convey ing transports having on board 6,000 troops. It was the intention of Admiral Ting to disembark these troops through the mouth of the Yalu river in order to form a force with which to intercept the Japanese advance upon Monkden Man chacha, from which there is a railroad running to Fien Tsin. While engaged in landing these troops, according to this diBpatch, a fleet of nineteen Japanese warships ac companied by a fleet of torpedo boats were approaching the river. As soon as they were within range the Japanese attacked the Chinese and then followed a terrible conflict lasting six hours, dur ing which great guns, rapid firing guns and machine guns and all eorts of guns were used with fearful effect on both sides. Both fleets alBo used torpedoes repeatedly and fired at each other con tinuously irom , rapia-nring gunB mounted in the tops of the different warships. Confirmatory News. Washington, Sept. 19. Confirmatory news was received today by Secretary Gresham of the defeat of the Chinese by land and sea. Without further no tice the fact that telegraphic com' munication between Pekin and Corea has been "cut off by the Japanese is taken here as an evidence that the Chi nese forces are in a miserable plight. The small remnant of an army iB cut off from reinforcements by sea as a re' suit of the defeat of the Chinese fleet at the mouth of the Yalu river. They cannot communicate with their own government by wire and as their escape from the Corean peninsula by northern overland routes is prevented by the seizure of the mountain passes by the Japanese their surrender appears to be inevitable.
