St. Petersburg is Expecting
News of if Hourly—It May
Decide the War.
St. Petersburg, Aug. 6.—General
Kuropatkin’s report of small shifting
movements by the Japanese with a
single unimportant skirmish, bringing
the military situation up to August 4,
is just about what was expected by the
authorities here. It is believed, how-
ever, that the lull in the lighting has
lasted about as long as possible and
that the forces around Liao Yang are
now on the eve of a desperate and de-1
cisive engagement. (
The pause of the past few days is
believed to have been long enough to
enable the Japanese to assume their
formation, bring up supplies and make
ready for a grand assault upon the
powerful positions girding Liao Yang
and the battle of the war is hourly
expected to occur.
An issue of such importance momen-
tarily eclipses interest in the siege of
of 200,000 men. Only one-third of this
force was enged in the lighting of July
.'10 and 31 and August 1.
j The pick of Kuropatkin’s troops,
the newly arrived European regiments,
are stationed at Anping and Anshan-
shan, where the hardest onset is ex-
pected to be made. Some of these
regiments were raised many years ago
and have great war records. Officers
acquainted with the men declare that
the dogged tenacity displayed at Yu-
shu pass and Nanga pass have become
only more tierce and unyielding under
the reverses met by the troops.
SAYS PORT ARTHCR MUST FALL.
Chefoo, Aug. 6.—“Port Arthur cer-
tainly will fall inside of one or two
months, depending on how fast the
Japanese move. ”
This opinion was expressed today
by an educated Russian who has just

RATTLE MAY END THE WAR.
The fate of the latter place is not
likely to influence the immediate des-
tinies of the campaign, but Liao Yang
is closely tied up with the fortunes of
the whole war.
The loss of such a position, with its
vast accumulations of stores, would
immediately and perhaps irreparaoly
endanger the main Russian position
The military authorities do not
entertain the slightest doubt of Gen-
eral Kuropatkin’s ability to repulse
an attempt to capture and cut off Liao
Yang. The defense there has an im-
mense advantage, operating within
the small radius of twenty miles, thus
enabling General Kuropatkin to rein-
fore? promptly any weak point.
KUROPATKIN HAS 200,000 MEN.
The army at his disposal is estimat-
ed at 150 battalions, besides cavalry
and artillery, altogether not far short
