lPANESE victorious in five days battle
Tokio, (By Cable).?After five days
of fighting, largely with artillery, the
first Japanese army, tinder General
Kuroki. has forced a crossing of the
Yalu River, and with a gallant infan?
try charge, covering a frontage of four
miles, it drove thc Russians from
Chiutienchcng and the heights on the
right bank of the lho or Aida River,
which enters the Yalu from the north,
almost opposite Wiju. The Japanese
turned the left flank of the Russian
position, and in the hattie they swept
away the new front interposed by the
Russians to check their onward move?
The Russians were also forced to
abandon Antung. They burned the
town and retreated to Feng Huan
The Japanese now control the es?
tuary of thc Yalu.
Mn the decisive battle the losses
Japanese, 700 killed and wounded.
Russians, 800.
The Japanese captured 28 quick
firing guns, 20 officers and many men.
The Russians made two stands.
The Russians say their forces en?
gaged numbered less than 5,000 and
that the Japanese greatly outnum?
bered them.
General Kuroki began the move?
ment on Tuesday by ordering a de?
tachment oi the Imperial Guards Di?
vision to seize the Island of Kurito.
which is in the Yalu above Wiju, and
a detachment of the Second Divis?
ion, lo seize thc Island of Kinteito.
which is situated below Wiju.
The detachment of the imperial
guards met with some resistance, but
it succeeded in clearing the enemy out
and occupied Kurito Island. The Rus?
sians abandoned the island of Kin?
teito when attacked by thc detachment
of the second division.
The actual losses sustained by the
detachment of the imperial guards is
not known, as there is an error in that
J tart of the message received here re
erring to thc number killed, but 9 of
the detachments were severely and 16
slightly wounded. The detachment
of the second division which took the
Island of Kinteito sustained no losses.
During these movements on the is?
lands the Russians opened fire on the
Japanese with eight 91/ centimeter
guns from a hill behind Chiu T|;n
Cheng and two Hotchkiss guns, which
were mounted on the bank of the river
?t Kosan, where the Russians seemed
to have established Mteir headquarters.
One battery of Japanese artillery
?/hich had taken a position on a hill
to the east of Wiju, fired three volleys
lt Poaata, and at noon of Tuesday the
Russian batteries behind Chiu Tien
Cheng shelled Wiju, wounding one
Japanese soldier with shrapnel.
On Wednesday the Russians resum
rd the bombardment of Wiju, firing at
Intervals throughout the day. The
Japanese artillery did not respond to
this fire. General Kumki has received
reports to thc effect that thc Russians
ire fortifying the heights on thc right
bank of the lho River. These new
defenses are declared to extend from
Chiu Tien Cheng through the village
of Mokao to Koshoki, a distance of
three and a quarter miles.

Died With tbe Flag.
St. Petersburg (By Cable).?The
operations of the Vladivostok squad?
ron have revived the spirits of the
people of St. Petersburg, who have
been downcast since the destruction
of the Petropavlovsk and the conse?
quent confinement of the remnant of
the Port Arthur fleet to the harbor.
The fact that the navy is doing some?
thing of an offensive character appeals
to the popular mind, which has been
unable to appreciate the reason for
the inactivity of thc fine ships of the
VMadivostok squadron.
The official report of Rear Admiral
Yeszen to the Emperor is as follows:
"During the night of April 26 two
Russian torpedo boats met at sea the
Japanese military transport Kinshiu
Maru, of 4,000 tons, laden with rice
j and other military stores and about
, 1,500 tons of coal. The transport was
armed with four Hotchkiss guns of
forty-seven millimeters. The Rus?
sians captured on board seventeen offi?
cers, twenty soldiers, eighty-five mili?
tary carriers, or coolies, and sixty-five
of the crew, who surrendered. The
remainder of the men, who were to
form a landing party, and who were
left without officers, obstinately re?
fused to surrender or go on board a
Russian cruiser. Furthermore, they
offered armed resistance to the Rus?
sians. In the end they were sent to
the bottom with the transport."
He adds that there were 200 men
aboard the transport.
Admiral Yeszen also reports that
besides the sinking of the Japanese
steamer Goyo-Maru at Won-San (Gen
San) April 25 the Russians sank at
sea the same evening thc Japanese
steamer Nakamura-Maru, of 220 tons,
whose crew was saved.
It is generally recognized that Rear
Admiral Yeszen cannot do more than
frighten the Japanese and compel
them to exercise greater care in their
military movements, as the sinking
of a few transports or even cruisers
can have no permanent effect on the
result of the war. Moreover, he is
bound by his instructions not to risk
his ships unduly, the intention being
to keep them safe for an attack with
the Baltic fleet when it arrives in the
The possibility of a Japanese at?
tempt to mine the entrances to Vladi?
vostok, as was done at Port Arthur,
is considered, but the conditions are
different, and besides, Rear Admiral
Yeszen, with the lesson of the Petro?
pavlovsk disaster fresh in his mind,
will observe the utmost caution.
St. Petersburg is loaded with ru?
mors regarding the sinking of the
Japanese military transport the Kin
shiu-Maru. One report has it that
3,600 men were aboard the transport
when she went down, but the ad?
miralty insists that there were only
the main line near Wickes Siding.
Orders were issued for all north?
bound and southbound trains to use
the switch at that point instead of the
'matu line. Five trains passed the sid?
ing during the interval between the
breakdown of the freight car and the
arrival of No. 18.
It is stated by Conductor Austin
that he read the order to the engineer
and handed a copy to him. The of
ficals of the road cannot account for
the fact that the train approached the
siding at the high rate of speed it
must have done to cause the damage
it did.
The engine turned completely over,
pinioning Engineer Bailey beneath
tons of steel. Master Mechanic Taber
who was riding in the engine, was also
instantly killed.
The baggage car was thrown nearly
100 feet from thc wreck, and is entire?
ly demolished. The two coaches di?
rectly in the rear of the baggage car
were also overturned and badly
wrecked. The sleeping car in the rear
of the coaches was thrown on its side
and damaged.
Three Thousand Miners Strike.
Canton, O., (Special).?Miners of
the Tuscarawas district, about 3,000 in
number, quit work until an agreement
is reached on the scale. The trouble
is over the machine rate, which a ten
days' conference in Canton early in
the month failed to settle. That con?
ference referred thc whole question
to a committee of five operators and
five miners, but so far the committee
has failed to agree on a time and place
of meeting. They will probably get
together this week. There are about
thirty-five mines in the district, locat?
ed in Eastern Stark, Carroll and Tus?
carawas counties.
Serious Flood at Fort Scott.
Fort Scott, Kan., (Special).?Fort

the result of heavy rains. Several
