TUB WOK K re Task, Acrordint* to TIiuh«' Who Oualit Io K A >'•' Che Foo.Sept. 20—5:30 p. in.—Author itative information has been received here of a general attack upon Port Ar thur by the Japanese forces which be gan Monday before daybreak and con tinued until dark. This is the attack for which the .1 ip •aneso have been preparing for the past 10 days, with slight hope of sue« *ss. As forecasted in ihese dispatches, the Japanese attack on Port, Arthur is di rected against, the northeast front. The main object is to capture the fortifica on Kikwan mountain, Ribbing mountain and the intermediate forts. The foregoing comes from a Russian of standing, whose previous information has b tack a! the end of August, which was represented as two separate assaults really constituted a ten-days' battle, the fighting being the heaviest during the first three days and the last four days of that period. Although the Jap anese retired August 31 along the greater part of their line, they niained in four supplementary forts on the northeast front, which they had captured from the Russians. These in clude two forts 50 yards from Rihlung mountain and two others at a some what. greater distance. Since August 31 the Japanese have bombarded very slightly, while the» Russians have been throwing approximately 1,000 shells daily, chiefly against the four Japan ese positions mentioned. Small sor ties, as referred to by the Novi-Krai, of Port Arthur, in the efforts to recap ture the positions, have been of almost nightly occurrence and have been uni formly unsuccessful. The Japanese have been taught wholesome respect for the resisting power of the fortress, according to ev ery Japanese who has recently arrived here from Port Dalny. If they succeed in capturing Rihlung mountaii ti< correct. He adds that, the at a r oth r forts they will realize that this will be only one step, although an import ant one, toward the capture of Port Arthur. The Russians, who have been observing the new tactics of the .Jap anese, did not expect another attack before the first week in October. The Japanese are endeavoring to proceed slowly but surly.
