MUST FIGHT SOON
100,000 Japanese Confronting
Kuropatkin’s Entire Army—
Battle at Port Arthur.
Liao Yang, June -‘6.—The armies of
General Oku and General Kuroki, ag-
gregating at least six divisions, are
confronted by the huge force under
General Kuropatkin. The tension
here is most acute at the approach of
the most important battle of the war,
in which three times the number of
troops engaged at Kiu Lien Cheng,
Kinchau and Vafangow will take part.
The proximity of the rainy season
makes the battle unavoidable.
EXCITEMENT AT ST. PETERSBURG.
St. Petersburg, June25.—Today has
been full of rumor and intense excite-
ment. but this was relieved somewhat
this evening by the issue of a special
edition of the Official Messenger, con-
taining some details of the fighting
around Kaiping and other movements
in the neighborhood of Saimasze, al
ready announced by the Associated
Press. The operations in the north
east indicate that General Kuropatkin
is keeping his force on the extreme
left flank and in the rear of the enemy
and is capable of dealing with any
threatening move that General Kuroki
may attempt in that direction. There
is nothing in the official dispatches so
far to indicate any startling develop-
ment regarding the Japanese move-
ment north toward Kaiping, tho the
enemy is undoubtedly advancing
Major General Mistcbenko, com-
mander of the eastern Cossack bri-
gade, according to reports received at
the war office dated yesterday, attack-
ed the Japanese advance posts on the
Siuyen-Ta-Tch :-Kiao road and a
sharp engagement resulted in" which
artillery was brought up and the Jap-
anese forward movement was arrested.
On this road the Cossacks lost seven
men killed and three officers and eleven

The city is full of rumors that heavy
fighting is in progress at Ta-Tche-

thur June 23, the only sister ship of
the Peresv'et is the Pobieda: of the
Diana, the Pallada, and of the Sebas-
topol, the oltava. It transpires that
the emperor received the news last
night, altho by what agency is a
mystery, but it possibly came from
French sources at Tokio.
STRENGTH OF ARMY.
The battalion consists of 1,000 men
in the Japanese army organization,
which is patterned after the German.
Three battalions constitute a regi-
ment; two regiments a brigade, and
about three brigades a division, in-
cluding the cavalry and artillery arms.
The six divisions of the Japanese
army confronting the Russians south
of Liao Yang should, therefore, num-
ber upwards of 100,000 men.

posed the candidacy of Mr. Hearst.
and I will carry out the wishes of the
democrats of that district at St.

The announcement made by Mr Eck-

cative of the stand that may be taken
by other anti-Hearst delegates on the
Illinois delegation. It is uow claimed
that they, too, will vote against
Hearst. The delegation is composed
principally of anti-Hearst pien, and if

St. Louis, June 25—There is a re-
