Admiral Makaroff Now in Command of Land and Naval Forces at Port Ar thur and Complete Change of Tactics Since His Ar rival from St. Petersburg. St. Petersburg, March 12.The Rus sian torpedo boat flotilla left Port Ar thur at broad daylight and attacked the Japanese fleet. One Japanese tor pedo boat was stink and one Russian torpedo boat destroyer, the Be'zposht chac'ni, was sunk. The fate of the latter 's crew is not known. Admiral Makaroff inaugurated his assumption of the command of the Russian fleet at Port Arthur by a com plete change of tactics. As soon as he appeared he ordered the removal of the battleship Retyizan, which was stranded at the mouth of the harbor and barred the channel at certain stages of the tide, making the egress of battleships impossible. During the morning he directed a sortie of the torpedo boat flotilla, supported by a part of the Russian squadron, against he Japanese sauadron. The details are not. ye Known except that tiie counter resulted in the loss of one Japanese torpedo boat and one Rus sian torpe do boat destroyer. MYSTIFIED BY JAP ACTION.

JAPANESE TORPEDO BOA SUNK AND RUSSIAN DESTROYER GOE S DOWN. imTImnia In order to reduce our stock we will offer ex traordinary bargains next week _AU Fresh Spring Goods O'LEAR & BOWSER Bemidji, Minn. &rry, emperor ma, known. .Military and naval circles are mysti fied at the purpose of the appearance ot Japanese torpedo boats during the previous night, as it was not accom panied by a serious attempt upon the Russian ships. The bombardment of the fleet from a position off the Liaotishin. promontory, which is five to six miles from Golden hill, at the entrance of the harbor, is believed to indicate that the Japanese were afraid to risk a frontal attack under the guns of the land batteries. It is considered doubtful whether auy oi the guns of the Russian batteries command the location from which the Japanese were firing, It is pointed out that dropping shells into the har bor and town even for fun is accom panied by danger and this haphazard v*)i'k is explicable perhaps only on the theory that it was meant as a diversion to cover more serious operations else where. Still, some of the exper ts here declare their belief that the only ob ject of the Japanese was to keep the garrison and fleet worrie d. ALEXIEFF SENDS REPORT.
