The 11 naval bombardments of the land 11 . works Jiave generally been in '1 effective, yet the peculiar topo- c' graphical conditions of Port Arthur make immunity from a' serious loss from bombardment ^ almost impossible.

Commander-in-Chief oi Russian Army Hailed a Savior. St. Petersburg, March 12.? Gen. Kuropatkin, accompanied by his staff, left here at C o'clock this evening on a special train for the far east, where he will take command of -..v. v,. inv Luuvuuimii ai iLiy . The departure of the general was marked by a demonstration of patriotism and personal regard such as seldom have been witnessed in the Russian capital. The thousands of persons who lined the Nevsky prospect and the approaches to the Nicholas railroad station, vied with the highest persons in the empire giving vent to expressions of confidence in the new commander who is to lead the emperor's armies to victory. Modestly and without the ac companiment of music or escort the general drove to the station in an open carriage. Ilis passage down the broad boulevard was followed by a storm of cheers which grew louder as the crowd A-ew denser near the station. Here the enthusiasm broke out into mighty shouts. As Gen. Kuropatkin reached the head of the stairs Gen. Egi --- ? --- Miv niun, nuuo u<iii^-11 nuu (rem- r bling witli emotion, presented him with a small image ol Alexis. Gen. Kuropatkin knelt reverently and accepted the talisman. S Gen. Kuropatkin then stepped o forward. His strong personality u was strikingly illustrated in t lie ^ way he moved through the room, i His grizzled beard and piercing . eyes suggested a resemblance to Grant. He greeted all present, embracing and kissing old comrades, and shaking hands with v olioers. c The Corean minister to Russia, who was as enthusiastic as any i Russian, seemed to regard (Jen. i Kuropatkin as the saviour of his ^ country. He pushed hard to get j near enough to shake the pen- ^ eral's hand, and wish him every j success. Several ladies who were present could not retrain from kissing the hero of the hour, and the attention he gallantly recip- ' rocated. t As the train slowly gathered ^ headway every voice in the vast c multitude broke into a roar ol t cheers and blessings. .
