Yokohama, Nov. 4. —Advices received here from the frontier show that there has been very heavy fighting in the oountry just north of Port Arthur. The dispatches received are brief and are silent on some important points. It appears tbat Field Marshal Oyama di viden his forces. While one diviaion landed on the coaat of the peninsula north of Talienwan, another division was detached with orders to effect a landing near Kin Chow and to proceed thence and join tha main body of the army. Thia operation was a complete success. The Japanese encountered no Chinese warships and the transports reached Kayenko and disembarked troopa, guns, horaea and munitions in safety. Kin Chow, which, is a walled town, and which was believed to be held by a large garrison, was immedi ately attacked. The outter defenses were carried by the Japanese after a few hours' fighting. Tha Chinese made lit tle further resistance and the Japanese were soon masters of tbe place. In the meantime tbe Japanese fleet, which had conveyed the transports, opened a heavy fire on Talienwan and Kakuyo (Kayenko). The firing scarcely ceaaed for many hours. Covered by tha fire from tbe ahipa, tbe land forces attacked and captured Talienwan in a brilliant fashion. The diapatch states that tbe losaes were heavy. They also mention that an important naval engagement ocenrred Saturday, bnt give no details. Up to the time of sending this dis petoh there has been no confirmation of the report of the capture of Port Arthur. Field Marshal Yamagata'a army con tinues its victorious march.

A TERRIFIC BOMB EXPLOSION IN LONDON. Considerable Damage Dona to Build ings, but No Lives Lost —An- - arcblats Sappoead to Have Done It. London, Nov. 4.—A bomb exploded tonight outside a house in Tilney street, Park lane, two doors from the residence of Hon. Sir Henry Hawkins, one of the justices of the queen's bench division of her majesty's high court of justice. Tbe front of tne house waß much damaged and the windows of houses on the op posite side of the street were smashed. The house was occupied, but nobody was hurt. Tbe force of tbe explosion must have been great as tbe door of the house was blown in and the atone steps shattered. A search revealed the re mains of tha bomb. Suspicion Teats on a man who alighted in the vicinity ot the bouse from a cab which bad con veyed him from the Savoy hotel. He has not yet been arrested. Justice Hawkins is the judge who sentenced Frederick Charles, Victor Gailes, Joseph Thomas Duncan and Jean Batolla, the anarchists, to various terms of imprisonment. He alio pre sided at the trials of other anarchists and imposed sentences of various de grees upon them. It is thought in some quarters tbat tbe explosion waa an at tempt to seoare revenge against the judge, but tbat tbe author of it made a mistake in the house. Another account aays tbe house is the residence of Hon. Reginald Brett, son of tbe late Lord Ksher. Lord Brett was at his club, and Mrs. Brett waß in tbe hall of her residence. when tbe bomb ex ploded. She was, however, not bnrt. The bomb ploughed up a cavity of 18 inches below the threshold of the front door, whioh was blown to pieces. The top step, a slab of concrete 40 by 26 inohea, was blown across the street. The railings were twisted. The sound of the explosion was heard for two milea. A Big Suit Settled.
