IF ARTHUR FALLS
THEN THERE IS A STANDING
ORDER TO BLOW UP SHIPS.
IS BY THE CZAR'S AUTHORITY
Acuto Anxiety Prevailing Regarding
tho Situation Ample Supply of
Ammunition and Provisions Said
to Do at Port Arthur.
ST. PETERSUBRG Acuto anxiety
prevails regarding the situation nt
Port Arthur on account of tho deeper
rato character of tho fighting re
ported to bo taking place. Tho war
office, howoror, does not ficcm to bo
lleve that danger of tho fall of tho
fotross Is so imminent ns la gener
al ly assorted. According to advices
received by tho war office thero' Is
still an ample supply of ammunition
and provisions there. Whllo it 13
realized that tho Japanese probably
outnumber tho defenders six or seven
fold tho groat strength of tho forti
fications, It Is believed, will do much
to make up for tho disparity In num
bers. Upon ono point there Is absolute
unanimity hero, namely, that If tho
fortress is so imminent as is gener
into tho hands of the Japanese. On
this point the admiralty's instructions
aro of tho most imperative character.
Vlco Admiral Princo Ouktomsky
has been ordered, should tho worst
come, to sally forth for .1 death strug

theso instructions will bo carried out,
both in letter and In spirit, but If

In tho meantime Vice Admiral Ro
Jestvensky's Baltic squadron, Includ
ing tho battleship Orel, Is standing
otY Cromstadt with steam up. It is
popularly expected thnt the squadron
will sail at any hour, and It Is quite
truo that It is ready for almost im
mediate departure, but regarding tho
question of nailing tnere Is a differ
ence of opinion among tho naval au
thorities. It is held on tho ono hand
that tho immediate sailing of tho
squadron would bo the best policy.
Should tho squadron arrive within
two months In tho orient it would
find Vice Admiral Togo's floet In ar.
infinitely worse condition than if tho
Japanese were allowed the whole win
ter to repair and refit tho ships.
The advocates of an immediate
sailing hold that tho port of Vladl
vostock is cap-able of receiving the
squadron, oven should tho entrance
in Pert Arthur prove to bo impractic
able, and they wish to treat the Port
Arthur squadron for tho present as
a negligible quantity, letting the Bal
tic sea vojsois meet the .Tapanoso in
tho present weakened condition with
out relying for any certain assist
ance either on Vlco Admiral Ouk
tomsky or Vlco Admiral Skrydloff.

YORK RAISES A NEW POINT.
Counties Whoso Valuation Was
Raised Look for Flaws in Law.
LINCOLN A York county man
stated that thcro is a possibility that,
tho increases in county valuations
ordered by tho State Board of Equali
sation may all bo invalid, because of
tho interference with tho power of
'.ho county boards to raise revenue.
Under the statute for tho regulation
of county levies, county boards aro
required to make estimates In Janu
ary of the amount of revenue which
they will raise for local purioses,
and they arc subject to a lino, should
thoy raise moro revenue than the
estimate calls lor. Under tho new
revenue statute the state board to
equalize must of necessity Interfere
with the amount of revenue raised
locally, nnd that fact. It Is claimed,
makes tho section granting tho power
to tho state board Invalid. It Is not
yet known whether a test suit will
bo instituted in York county. The
buccos of such a suit would cut down
Iho grand assessment roll of the state
by about 54,000,000.
