GUNSHU PASS Manchuria, July
16.—Rewrts that the Russian army is
in a precarious situation appear to be
without foundation. Investigations
made by correspondents of the Associ
ated Press show that neither flank
has been tamed, and that, in fact, the
Russian wings are more advanced
than tbe center.
The Japanese center is strongly
fortified. Many siege guns have been
emplaoed along *he Changtufu Nancb
enze line, and the triple ring of forts
commanding the Mandarin road.
The Japanese are using a novel ele
phant trap style of entrenchment,
consisting of ditches covered with
platforms which are balanced in the
middle, and which tilt into vertical
positions under the feet of attackers.
The Japanese have captured a bal
loon eight miles south of Nancbenze.
