As forecasted in ihese dispatches, the
Japanese attack on Port, Arthur is di

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
tack a! the end of August, which was
represented as two separate assaults

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

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

31 the Japanese have bombarded very
slightly, while the» Russians have been
throwing approximately 1,000 shells
daily, chiefly against the four Japan

observing the new tactics of the .Jap

before the first week in October. The
Japanese are endeavoring to proceed
slowly but surly.
