MAD HEROISM AND RED BAYONETS Fought Hand to Hand and With Em pty Guns Swaths of Heroes Mowed Down by Deadly Artillery. Sot. lctorOinrg, Sept. 3, (2:00 a. in.) v The battle of Liao Yung which be gun with a Japanese advance on Au gust -I, the day of the christening of the Czarevitch and concluded Sat urday, Sept. 3, with tho retreat of I Gen. Kuropatkln, is believed to have been the longest and bloodiest of his- tory. Numerous Incidents or the lighting upset the theory Involved by exper ience in the lioer war that a modern battle must necessarily be fought at long range both sides repeatedly met In bund to hand encounters In bayonet charges and the men of each side so near each other that they could distinguish features and hear wolds of command. In one Instance they were separated only by the wid i h of the railroad and actually threw stones at each other. The mad heroism of the Japanese and the stub born tenacity of the Russian has sel dom, if ever been paralled. Correspondents say that several of the bayunet attacks made by the Jap anesedurlng the battle have been forc ed by the depletion of ammunition of which modern arms entail such ex-. travagant enpendlture. The Japanese came on with empty guns and with hopes of finishing mo.tod in placing his own interpretation i.i tack with cold steel, but it was proved at their own cost that such attacks cannot be driven home In tho lace of the lire of breech loading guns.

The retreat Is the logiehl conse quence of the Russian plan of leading on and tiring out the Japanese at the successive stations to the north ward, the placing of their foe nt the constantly growing disadvantage of lengthened line of communication. The success of this plan was marred by a blunder of Gen. Stakolberg, who, In the words of Gen. Kuropulkln, insls- on orders, instead of fulfilling them. Gen.
