Stoessel at Port Arthur is considered exceedingly critical owing to lack of ammunition. The fact can not be surprising to any one who has noted the terrific out1put of shot and shell since January last. (ien. Stoessel, according to the tenor of my dispatch a few days ago, has full liberty to surrender when he findo the situation hopeless. Indeed he has instructions to do so. Independent and apart from scarc ity of ammunition, the garrison for some time has been reduc d to a diet I of black bread, whi'e the masses of unburied bodies which the Japanese refuse to allow to be buried, cause terrible pollution of the air. Gen. Kuropatkin telegraphs that he wants officers, and grtat efforts are being made to provide the same. An official order has been issued reliev ing employes of the state railways qualified to serve as officers. A number of torpedo' boats have I been supplied to Russia by Germany. You may be quite sure neither Muk den nor Tie Ling will be seriously held. The latter has been called thve Thermopylae of Manchuria, but can be easily burned. Owing to the latest news from Port Arthur, the idea of the Baltic fleet starting appears to be quite abandon ed. Kuropatkin Up Against it. Toklo: It is held here by the best authorities that Japan, by occupying Liao Yang, has virtually become mis tress of Manchuria from a strategical point of view. Russia has lost all means of obtaining food for its army for the time being. It was for this end that Oyama hastened the attack on Liao Yang, which, despite its drawbacks, was really unavoidable, as it was of the utmost importance to prevent the Russians from ctrry ing off their valuable stores of pro visons. By their forced retreat from Liao Yang the Russians were unable to carry off any large portion of their stores. The supplies of ammunition and foodstuffs, partly burned by the Japanese, filled seventeen immense warehouses. Kuropatkin is now una ble to renew his lost supplies except by exclusive use of the railway for that purpose for several months. Lynchers in Bad Odor.
