PORT DESTROYED DOCKS AND PIERS BLOWN UP AT DALNY. WORK DONE BY THE RUSSIANS In Anticipation of an Attempt of Jap anese to Take Possession of the Place-Best Equipped Port on the Pacific Coaut. S'f. PETERSBURG Viceroy Alexiefl has telegraphed to the czar announc Ing that the Russians have blown up the docks and piers at Port Dalny Llao 'fung peninsula , presumably tc : render more difficult a Japanese land. lug at that point. Later telegrams received here indicate . cato that the whole of Port Dalny has been destroyed by the Russians Port Dalny , on Taken Wan hay on time cast coast of the Liao Tung peninsula , was ! intended hy Russia tc he the chief commercial emporium of its eastern dominions. An edict pro. viding for its construction was issued by the Russian emperor July 30 , 1899 : and Port Dalny , fully equipped with all modern improvements , docks , warehouses and railroad facilities , was opened to commerce in December , 1901. TaUen Wan bay Is one of the first deep water harbors on the Pacific coast. It is free from ice in winter time and ships drawing thirty feet of water can enter at low tide without difficulty and without the aid of pilot ! can sail or steam alongside the Im mense docks and piers , where their cargoes can be loaded Into railroad cars and run direct for 4,000 miles into the city of St. Petersburg. Five large piers had been constructed . ed , each supplied with numerous railroad . road tracks and immense warehouses and elevators , gas , electric lights and water , and a large breakwater was being . ing constructed , so that ships could lie at the piers and load and unload regardless of weather. Docks for for- eign vessels , steam and sail , extended beyond the piers and along the shore for two miles. There were two first- class dry docks , one intended for or- Binary ocean steamers and the other designed to accommodate the largest vessels of war or commerce. Six million had been expended on the harbor system before the end of 1902 , and it was estimated that the cost of completing the works would be nearly $20,000,000 , but this does not In any way represent the total cost of the erection of this great commercial port , which , with Port Arthur , distant about twenty miles , was leased by the Chinese government to Russia in 1898. Nearly 20,000 mon were employed dally on the worls. The total population - tlon has been estimated at about GO ; 000 , most Chinese , Japanese , Koreans and Russians. MOBILIZE TROOPS AT DENVER. .
