JAPS LOSE FOUR SHIPS
Russians destroy four Japanese cruisers
and two transports, forcing fleet to
abandon attack on Port Arthur. The
report is not confirmed.
[Special Dispatch to Daily Alaskan. ]
St. Petersburg, Feb. 24 ? Dispatches received here from Port Arthur today say that
the Russians repulsed, with terrible havoc to the en^my, an attack upon Port Arthur by
the Japanese fleet last night. The dispatches state that tymr Japanese cruisers and two
transports were sunk, and the remainder of the fleet compelled to abandon the attack
after having sustained heavy loss.
The details concerning the engagement are meager but it is said that the Russian bat
tleship Retvizan, which was handled so roughly by the Japanese on the night of the first
attack was in the midst of the fray and covered herself, her officers and crew with glory.
STORY OF ENGAGEMENT LACKS CONFIRMATION
[Special Dispatch to the Daily Alaskan.]
Washington, Feb. 24 ? The story of the Japanese defeat in an attack upon Port
Arthur which has been telegraphed from Stfl Petersburg lacks confirmation. At the Ja
panese legation it is discredited.
The associated press has been authorized to make the following statement:
?'The Japanese legation at Washington discredits the correctness of the St. Peters
burg dispatches giving the account of the sinking of four Japanese cruisers and two
trans[>orts at Port Arthur. Attention must be paid to the fr?cfr mport etrri nates
from Russian sources. Futhermore, the battleship Ritvizan, which is said to have parti
cipated in the engagement, is understood to be unfiitted for action, and the best advices
obtainable would indicate that she will remain so for some months to come."

respecting the passage of the Russian Black sea fleet through the Dardanelles are declared,

STILL NORTH Of THE YALD
[Special Dispatch to Daily Alaskan.]
Tokio, Feb. 24 ? Reports from northern Korea indicate
that the Russians have not crossed the Yalu river with any
considerable portion of their army. Their scouts have pen
etrated the country south of i-ju, but che main force is
believed to be still north of the river.
The Japanese are confident that the Russians will be
unable to assemble a sufficient force upon the banks of the
Yalu river to induce them to attempt an invasion of Korea.
The Japanese government estimates that there are not
more than 40,000 Russian troops on the Yalu river, notwith
standing the statements that have been made placing the
number as high as 200,000 men.
