Around Doomed Stronghold.
St. Petersburg. Sept. M. Newg re
vived here from Mukden sayt the
Japanese have assumed the offensive
and bavi captured Da Pass. This is
Rot actually confirmed but the gen-
' era! stuff thinks It la correct.
I The Russians it Is add! evacuated
the pass without serious resistance.
Da Pass or Ta Pass i meaning great

east of Mulcden and about the same
distance northeast of Liao Yung. It

dispatches from Harbin wore twico re-

lice this evening It was stated new
conscription regulations will augment
the available Japanese righting force
by nbout 200.000.
St. Petersburg. Sept 29. News has
been received here from Mukden to
(he effect that tho Japenose have at
lust begun the offenclve. They have
captured Da Pass nnd are pressing on
General Kuropatkln's left llnnk. Tho
war office Is unable to conllrm this of-
ficially but the Assoclntcd Pross Is In-
formed by tho goneral staff that all
indications point to the news being
correct it .is believed tho Russians
abandoned Da Pass without serious re-
sistance. Several other passes of Da
ilingceastwani of Rcntzluputzo (20
miles southeust of Mukden) are also
in tbe hands of tho Japanese.
Kuropatkln Is evidently drawing tn
his forces to a less mountainous coun-
try northwestward where he may de-
cide to give battle. In tho meanwhile
sharp fighting Is regarded as Imminent
southeast of Mukden whence tho Jap-
anese are expected to deliver their
main attack or a flank movomont. Tho

mand a suction of tho town nnd har-
bor. The Russian tiro for many Unys
has not been us vigorous ns usual.
Tho correspondent confirms tho report
of sovcrc loss ot the garrison nnd tho
cutting off of tho main aqueduct sup-
plying tho fortress with water.
A dispatch to the Chronicle vague-
ly dated "Llao Tung Peninsula Sept.
2C." reports that the bomburdmont ot
Port Arthur goes on unceasingly. Tho
fortress Is surrounded with u ring ot
tire from tho Japanese shells. Tho
last line of defenses is being battered
to pieces preparatory to n Ilnal as-
sault. At one Aint the Japanese Iirrv'c
sapped to within n few hundred yards
of tho Russians. It will be dllllcult to
cross tho Intervening space owing to
tho Intensity of the defenders' rlllo

that the Russians made a sortie but
were driven bacK into tno toriross.
They lost somo Howitzers.
