The Latest from Port Arthur. Russia is not yet prepared to accept the report that the Japanese before Port Arthur have taken 203 Metre Hill, but if it is officially con firmed the War Office admits that it will be a desperate blow for the gal lant defenders of the fortress. The position commands the harbor and if the Japanese can mount seige guns on its summit they can force out the Russian squadron or destroy it at its anchorage. Those familiar with the supporting plans of the forts think it is by no means cer tain that even though the Russians are forced to retire from 203 Metre Hill the Japanese can place in po sition heavy guns against the fire which the other forts can bring to bear on it. Still the Russian offi cials reluctantly agree that such a breach in the chain renders the po sitions extremely critical and though the garrisen might be able to hold out in the Golden Hill, Tigers Tail and Liaoti forts for some time it may mark the begin ning of the end. The War Office is convinced that with the approach of the Russian second Pacific squadron the Japanese considered that the elimination of the Port Ar thur squadron as a fighting factor, was absolutely vital, thus accounting for the reckless sacrifice of life in order to secure a position directly commanding the harbor.
