agreed on at .Mukden by viceroy Alex

with the result of Stakelhurg's

General Nodati, delaying the siege to
that extent, while a raid of the Russian
squadron has rendered the further

mainland Impossible.

from the Vladivostok! squadron an
has not intimated wnat its further
mission Is. The papers are all rejoicing
