PLAN OF JAP CAMPAIGN Iain Army to le Landed, at New Chv.ans "Which Is to be TIale lSa.se of Operations. IS)m ThisPoint the War Will be Fought Out on the Plains of Mancliuria. - . ' London, March 24. The stringent Japanese censorship is likely to be relaxed early in April says the Daily Telegraph's Seoul correspondent. This coincides with the numerous in dications of the imminence of land operations. In the meantime the veil has not lifted and not a word has yet issued, either officially from Japan or un officially from any other source, con cerning the last bombardment of Port' Arthur. The Times this morning prominently publishes an opinion of a correspondent that Japan will land her main army at New Chwang, which will be formed into a magnificent base and that s!ie alo probably will seize Hai-Cheng (15 miles east on the railroad) as an additional base, and that, without seriously attacking eith er Port Arthur or Vladivostok, the war will be fought out on the plains cf central Manchuria. It is almost cer tain, in the correspondent's opinion, that the war will be a long one and at the worst Japan will retain a way to retreat overland into Korea. If she secures New Chwang, he says, her prestige will be established and, he adds, that the waterways of south ern Mancnuria will be of inestimable value in somewhat counterbalancing the weakness of Japan in her cavalry. An Official Denial. St. Petersburg, March 21. The re ports printed in Europe and the United States to the effect that a ptate of siege, such as has been pro claimed in Siberia aD in Saratoft province, southeastern Russia (through which the Siberian railroad runs) will be extended to the whole of European Russia, is officially de clared to be absolutely falsa. No such mer-ure has even bfcMi contem plated, it being considered quite unnecessary. Result Still in the Dark. St. Petersburg, March 241 Two be lated press dispatches dated Mukden, March 22, have been received. They refer briefly to the last bombardment of Port Arthur, but shed no fnew light on the result of the combat. The Novosti holds that the failure of this bombardment, despite the different disposition of the enemy's ships from that of the fruitless attack of March 9th, confirms the opinion of the In ability of the Japanese to effectively conduct war. JAPANESE DIET Special Session Enters on Business for Which It Was Called. Tokio, March 24. The special ses sion of the diet has entered upon the business for which it was called. Pre mier Katsura and Minister of Foreign Affairs Komura addressed the house. The premier said the diet had been summoned at an unparalleled moment In the annals of the country. He counted it a great honor to share with the members of the diet the duty of upholding the noble policy of the era peroi. The maintainanoe of the per manent peace of the Orient by the confirmation of the position of the em peror and by promoting friendly rela tions with the great powers respecting the legitimate rights o? the powers, he said, was the established policy of Japan. Continuing he said: "Russia not only tailed to meet the Japanese proposals but definitely resorted to actions calcinated to injure the natur al rights of Japan. Japan was com pelled, in self-defense, to terminate negotiations and take independent action." He was confident the world would recognize the justice and patience un iformly exercised by Japan in carry ing forward the negotiations. He was anxiously desirous for peace, mindful of the woeful consequences which war brings to mankind. Minister of Foreign Affairs Komura placed before the house the full text of the diplo matic correspondence with Russia, commencing with the opening of nego tiations in July last, and ending with instructions to Minister Kurino to withdraw from St. Petersburg. The substance of the correspondence has already been made public. Putting Down the Ton Haks. Seoul, March 24. The Ton Haks are giving trouble in the northeastern part of Korea and are making over tures to the Russians. f A detachment of Japanese from Gensan engaged a body of Ton Haks near Samung with the result that 24 of the Ton Haks were killed or wounded and 35 were captured. RACE WAR IN SIGHT Three Negroes Killed by Posse and Reprisals Are Feared. Dewitt, Ark., March 24. Three ne groes were killed in a battle between blacks and whites at St. Charles, this county. A posse of deputy sheriffs was engaged in a search for two ne groes who had seriously wounded two white men in a fist fight at St. Charles and while passing through a section of woodland they were fired at from a thicket by a party of negroes. The whites returned, the fire and instantly killed Garrett Flood, Will Madison and Will Baldwin. The tragedy has greatly aroused the community and further trouble is feared. A posse has left here for St. Charles. Hubbard's Death Confirmed. Williamstown, Mass., March 24. The report of the death of Leonid" s Hubbard, jr., assistant editor of Out ing magazine, while on an exploring expedition in Labrador, has been con firmed in a letter received by relatives of A. Dillon Wallace, a former Will iamstown man, who is the surviving white man of the party. The letter was written by Wallace at Northwest river in December, nearly two months after the death of Hubbard, and it tells of his death and of the narrow escape of Wallace. PROCEEDING LEISURELY House Making Slew Prcgre3s With the Pcstcffics Bill. Washington, March 24. When the house adjourned last evening some progress had been made in the reading of the postcfflce appropriation bill for amendment but only six pages were disposed of. The appropriation for the railway mail service was carefully scrutinized, and in the cise of inland mail transportation by star routes the appropriation v.-?s scaled down from ?8,100,000 to $7,850,000. The question as to the length of time a postal car may be used before it becomes unfit for service was settled by the house when an amendment by Mr. Twaney (Minn.) was adopted providing that no part of the appropriation shall be used for the rental of cars which have been in service for more than fifteen years. The senate spent the greater part of the day considering the Indian appro priation bill. Three hours of the time was given to a discussion of a claim of $50,000 for services rendered the Choctaw Indians. It finally was eliminated from the Indian bill. The civil service debate was renewed, and there was considerable discussion of the policy to be pursued in securing employes fcr work on the Panama canal. District cf Columbia's Expenses. Washington. March 24. The senate committee on appropriations has re ported the District of Columbia appro priation bill. It carries $11,303,204, an increase of $1,108,727 over the bill as passed by the house. Ran Into Open Bridge. Maysville, Ky., March 24. The bod ies of two unknown men were found on the Bentonville pike about twelve miles northeast of this city. Near them was found the wreck of an au tomobile. Heavy rains had washed out the bridge which ' was hid by a sharp turn in the road and they evi dently ran into the vacant space. One of the men had a bible in his pocket and letters addressed to Joe Day, Mo ransburg, Ky. The other had letters addressed to Dr. Gilfillen, New Rich mond, O. 1 Helpful Russian Vomen. Vladivostok, March 24. While the situation here remains quiet, it is not expected that Vladivostok will con tinue to be much longer free from the vigorous operations of the Japanese. In anticipation of the appearance of the enemy and of a possible siege, a ladies' circle has been formed which sits six hours daily at the ministry of marine preparing bandages of linen lor sick soldiers and sailors. Most of the women in Vladivostok belong to this circlo, including the representa tives of the aristocracy, who have de termined to share the discomforts of the operations with their husbands. Chinaman Wants to Know. Jacksonville, Fla., March 24 Quong Gong, one of tne Chinamen ordered deported by Commissioner Archibald last week, has sued out a writ of habeas corpus before Judge J. W. Locke, of the United States district court. His attorneys argued for his release on the grounds that the act of congress is unconstitutional as it re quires a Chinaman being in the United States to establish proof of citizenship and heretofore is contrary to the fourteenth amendment. St. Petersburg Is Complacent. ' St. Petersburg, March 24. As no further dispatches, official or other wise, have arrived here from Port Ar thur, the officials have come to the conclusion that the bombardment by the Japanese fleet on the night of March 21 and the morning of March 22 failed to cause any damage consid ered worthy to be reported to the em peror. In consequence considerable satisfaction at the continued fruitless ness of the Japanese assaults on Port Arthur prevails in high circles.
