St. Petersburg, April 19.—St. Pe tersburg is flooded with rumors from all directions regarding the.plans of the Japanese, novt that the Russian fleot at Port Arthur- is-ttnablc lunger to menace their troop transports. The Associated Press, In a dispatch from Port Arthur, gave twenty as the number of Japanese transports re ported as having bi- lighted steam ing in the direction Yin Kow, the seaport of Naw Chwuiig. Officers of the general staff, while having no In formation in this respect, would not be surprised if the number should be correct, or that even a larger number is stemming there. They anticipated this movement'*at the time of the L.eaking out of the war, but the ac tivity of Vice Admiral Makaroff'a fleet-and the large army in the vicin ity of New Chwang imposed caution, and, it is believed, made the Japa nese abandon, or at least postpone it, and caused them to continue their ad vance towards Manchuria through Korea and consider disembarkation and a flank movement at Taku Shan. Vice Admiral Togc^s immense su periority enables him to hold the Russian squadron in Port Arthur and Japanese transports, therefore, can safely pass through the Straits of Pechili and attempt to land at the head of the Gulf of Liao Tung, under the guns of the warships, as did Gen eral Shafter's army at Daiquiri, and be iu an excellent position to execute a flank movement on Liao Yang or cuf off Port Arthur.

He is familiar with the strategic-position there and disposed a strong force to contest a Japanese movement at that point and if such a movement is made it is be lieved he will be able to check it.
