Three Vessels of the Vladivostok
Squadron and Japanese
London, June 15.A dispatch to the
Central News from Tokio filed this
afternoon says a naval engagement is
in progress off Tsuschima Island, in
Korea Straits, between three cruisers
of the Vladivostok squadron and a
number of Japanese warships. N
details have been -received.'
Tokio, June 15.--The entrance to
Port Arthur harbor is clear and"-now
open for the passage ef ships. Yes
terday the Russian protected cruiser
Novik steamed out to sea and engaged
the vessels of the Japanese blockading
St. Petersburg, June 15.-The Jap
anese are displaying activity at all
their advance lines.
According to information in the pos
session of the war office two divisions
of the enemy are now marching north
along the railroad .towards VaTangow
(twenty-five miles above Kinchou).
They are having constant. skirmishes
with the retiring Russians, but the ad
vance is not being seriously contested.
Although-it is too early to determine
the.exact purpose of the advance
presumption of the general staif is
that the northward movement is in
tended to effect a juncture at Kaichci
with the column from Sinyeu, which is
still moving westward.
The bombardment of the coast near
Kaichou and the blockade of New
chwang might indicate that the ti
mate object of the combined, nu:.e-
ment is. to clear the Liaotung pfei'hi
sula of Russians and occupy is! ,v-
chwaiig as a new base. The gaui.~n
at Newchwang it is claimed here, t-.e-
inains undiminished, but it is not us
lieved that the Russian plans cor.tem
plate a serious attempt to hold Ne.v
Outposts East vi lUaoyang.
North of Fengwangcheng the Japan
ese are~also moving. The war .,ce
has no advices confirmatory of tin. ir
abandonment of Saimatsza (north of
Fengwangcheng and east-southouoi of
Liaoyang). On the contrary the lat.
reports are to the effect that the .Jav
anese -hold Saimatsza, (heir outgoes
reaching as far north as Penslnryrin
pass (about due east of Liaoy.ai:...),
which is held by the Russian,!.
A Japanese force of ,000 nisja is .y-
ported to be moving noi'th IrSm iw. .i-
dlausiang, thirty miles from .-.i-
The Japanese are strongly fortify
ing Fengwangcheng as a precaution
against possible disaster.
The war office has advices since
June 12 from Pulantien (in the south
ern part of.the Liaotung peninsula)
and they do not mention the reported
Japanese ambush of that date, result
ing in the loss in that vicinity to the
Russians of 800 men. Neither has the
war office anything confirmatory of the
reported ambushing and almost total
destruction by the Russians of two
Japanese battalions the Haichehg
road. The officials of the war office
discredit both reports.
Private but reliable advices from
Port Arthur dated June 8 are to the
effect that the Japanese on that date
