NO. :$( THE ZONA WAN THE DARK EAST St. Petersburg Officials ' Can Only Conjecture IN KUROPATKINS HANDSif v i captured Feng Wang Cheng day he- fore yesterday (Friday). -It. was the There Is a ConGdence, Though, That He Will Move Cautiously and Sliill fully An Expectation That Japan ese Will Spread Over Peninsula. St. Petersburg, May 7. When tie? war commission adjourned this morn ing it failed to give out any official dis patches regarding the situation on I.i.m Tuns peninsula or at Feng- Wans Cheng. Nevertheless, there is no doubt that the Japanese troops were in touch with the Russian forces at Feng Wang Cheng and the report that tils latter had evacuated that place is gen erally credited. Surprise is caused by the withdrawal of General Kuropatkin toward his base at Liao Yeng, as it is stated that immediately after he learn ed of General Zassalitch's losses, he sent reinforcement to him to retain his losition. Official's here frankly confess, how ever, that they are not fully informed of Kuropatkin's plans. He is in sole charge of operations in Manchuria. Tho emperor decided that when General Kuropatkin started out he should have complete independence :o there could he no ground for complaint that he was hampered by instructions fiom officers in St. Petersburg, who could r.-ot pos sibly know all conditions, which ih? troops in the field would meet. Kuro patkin therefore has made his own dis positions and formulated his own plan. "What little is known here shows that he intends to observe the same cau tion that has distinguished the ope rations of the Japanese. Finding ta..t he could not offer battle at Feng Wan,? Cheng with an even chance of success, he decided to fall back it i:; believed, l i Mao-Tit-n pass. Ba.k of the pass is another pass, near which is a tempor ary railroad connect'ng with Liao Yang. Considerable comment has been aroused in mititary circles. The Japanese have followed up to now practically in all respects their plaiisin the Chino-Japanese war. They have crossed the Yalu at the same place and landed upon Liao Tung pen iusua at the same points, and it is be lieved they will continue their tactics, as their dispositions foreshadow the movements made in ism. It is not at all unlikely that another Japanese army will be landed upon the peninsula, which will move northward along the railroad line. During the Chino-Japanese war the Japanese cap tured Port Aithur two weeks after their disembarkation upon the penin sula. The Russians say the Japanese will not find it so easy a task to reduce Port Arthur as they did before. The Japanese army marching northward along the railroad, once past Kaiping can compel the Russians to evacuate New Chwang or else undergo a battle and a Ptate of siege. If the march is prosecuted as far as Hai Cheng, where the Japanese defeated the Chinese army. General Kuropatkin will have to abandon Mao Tien pass in consequence ON ' YOUR. You will need the correct time. We guarantee perfect satisfaction with whatever watch you buy of us. We know all about the movements we sell and sell them for just what they are. Don't you ryed one.

WIRELESS AND PIGEONS. How Port Arthur Wdl Communicate With the World. St. Petersburg.

Trained carrier pigeons were also sent t3 Port Arthur soma time ago and through one mean? or another the Russian authorities hope to retain communication. The admiralty Is in posser.sion of specific; information to the eIX.-ct that the harbor of Port Arthur is open. FRENCH SYMPATHY. A Financial Expression of Confidence in Russia's Ultimate Triumph. Paris, May 7. The critical situation of Russia's land and sea firces ex cites feverish interest, the Russian re verses vausing almost as much depres sion here as at St, Pfiorshnrr An - o - I r.. , . , t 1, , T ! aiii,aiiuii curcu i.-s reclames .'e France turned over to the Russian embassy today two complete field hos pitals of 100 beds each. This organi zation is composed of women in large i cities throughout France, including j ir.fmbers of many noble families. Two j moie hospital ouuitn wi!i be assembled! shortly. The embassy sends these hospitals to tho front under the diree- j tion cf the empress, who is" persona lly superintending the efforts of the' French woir.en in behalf of the Rus- j sian wounded. The official v.'ew is that Russia has j Muiereo serious out not an iriepar ab! blow. The foreign ofl'ce had not received tonight, official confirmation thatPit Arthur is completely invest ed by the land and sen. but .a leading1 official said: "We accent the invest- ment as an accomplished fac t, for even ' if the harbor is not completely block d j an investment exists for practical pur- j pr.ses.. ine landing i- considered merely preliminary to the supreme Ft niggle, whic h will soon cccur near Mukden.

However, China's positive declaration, backed by the identical position of the powers, is con sidered as reducing China's participa tion to the minimum. The readiness with which the Rus sian loan was placed in Paris is a further evidence of French sympathy and a belief in the certainty of Rus ri.Vs eventual puccess. Although the outside amount Rusii. desired was $lu0,(ino,000, a single group of French barkers was ready to underwrite a $:!00,(iOO.CuO loan. M. Ilottinger and M. NoetzLn will arrive from St. Peteis bur on Monday and complete ar rangements to issue the loan. One of the sons of Huron Hottingcr, thj founder of the great banking h.'.use. married Miss Munroefl the sister of an American banker. This led to the belief that a portion of the loan might go to the United States. American bankers say that no portion of it is likely to be taken in New York. It is pointed out that the placing of Rus sian securities on the New York stock exchange has not proved the succes that was expected. A leading Rus sian official 'here said that not a single Russian bond had been bought in America since the listing took place. The same official gave the following interesting" account of how the Rus sian army in the far east is paid: "What payments are made are in small Russian coins cr notes These notes are readily taken by the Chines?, who are familiar with the Russian; finan cial issues. The notes are then ex changed by the station masters of the Eastern Chinese railroad or the agen cies of the Russo-Chlnese bank at a rate of" exchange fixed by the minister of finance according to the price of silver in London. The confidence of the Chinese public in Russian notes is very great. The Russo-Chinese bank keeps a silver fund to exchange for notes in Manchuria, it being a signifi cant fact that Russian notes are pie ferred to silver in Manchuria," REAL WORK BEGINS. General Stoessel's Adclrsss to the Trcons at Port Arthur. Port Arthur, May C: Lieut. Gen. Btoessel has issued an order to the troops of his command as follows: ''Yesterday the enemy effected an im portant landing on Liao Tung ren insula, south of Pitsewo. Now our work is beginning. ' Naturally the enemy will destroy communication. An endeavor to drive our troops back to Port Arthur and besiege the fort ress. We will defend it until the ar rival of troops coming to relieve us. 1 consider it my duty to call u on you to display unceasing vigilance and caution. No matter what happens, we must not lose our heads, we shall be able with God's help, to cope with the arduous task imposed upon us." MAY 3E MANY HOURS. Ft. Petersburg, May 7. The Rus sian capital has been .without news for almost twenty-four houTs. It is be lieved the spot where the Japanese cut the railioad and telegraph lines is near Port Adams. A telegram from Kuro patkin soys that Kuroki's army is ad vancing on the Russian position with two divisions. The enemy, with ar tillery, has reached Kao Li Meun. which is called the "Gate of Korea." within ten miles of Feng Wang Cheng. RUSSIAN CONFIDENCE. St. Petersburg, May 7. The calm ness with which the Russians accept the isolation of what has always been regarded as the Russian Gibraltar of the far east is remarkable. The ut most confidence is expressed in the' ability to withstand a siege. The to tal force there is about 32.000. There are pracitcally no non-combatants there or at Port Dalny. TOGO SAYS ITS A BLOCKADE. Tokio, May V. Togo's official reci tal of the latest engagement off Port Arthur shows that the Japanese have effectively blocked the entrance of the harbor. Five out of eight of the Japanese blockading ships were jam med Into the inner channel, now pre venting egress from the harbor of all craft, excepting small boats. lie adds hat the Japanese have not lest a sin gle war vessel, although the attack resulted in considerable loss of life. A WINDY DAY. When Port Arthur Was Finally Shut In. Washington, May 7. A cablegram dated Tokio, May 7, received at the Japanese legation today says: 'Admiral Togo reports that his fleet effected the third blockading ojeration at Port Ar thur May 3.
