Reports from the front credit the
Japanese with having about 1.2o;l
guns and many mountain batteries,
and it Is known that they recently
shipped twenty four heavy guns to
Yinkow. Four of those guns already
have been mentioned In tlieRO dis
patches us being lu action.
General Kouropatkln, In addition to
his field butteries, has a number of
very heavy guns einpluced at Import
ant positions at Lino Yang, where ttie
Russians have been strongly fortifying
for some time.
The Japanese claim to have cup
t tired two Held butteries during tho
past two days. Russian olllclal ac
counts admit the loss of only six guns.
It is stated that a Japanese battery
was captured south of Anslianshan
during the preliminary fighting nnd
that several Japanese guns have been
destroyed since then.
Little of the strategic situation has

the front says ttiere was desperate

London, Aug. 81. A dispatch from
Llao Yang to a news agency, dated
Aug. 30, says: "The Japanese artil
lery fire only ceased at 8 o'clock this
evening. The casualties have not yet
been ascertained. Tho Third Russian
corps repulsed a hot Japanese assault,
the Japanese being hurled hack by
bayonet charges, firstly, by the Twen-ty-thlrd,
and then by tho Twenty
fourth regiments, which repulsed tho
enemy r.o less than six times. Two
Japanese companies which succeeded
In occupying a Russian position, wero
mistaken for Russians and annihilated
by Japanese artillery fire. At 4
o'clock in the afternoon tho Japaneso
concentrated their fire on a Russian
southern detachment and also tried to
outflank the detachment from tho
right under tho protection of tho bat
teries. One company after another
was noticed running swiftly to tho
westward in an attempt to outflank
the positions, but a Russian regiment
and a battery were ordered to advance
and succeeded In forcing tho enemy
to retreat in disorder, evacutlng posi
tions they previously had gained.
There has been an Immense expedi
ture of ammunition throughout tho
day, especially on the southern front
against the Russian Third corps. It is
believed that the Russian losses so
far have not been very heavy, except
to the regiments which sustained bay
onet charges. All tho men serving

killed by shrapnel. It seems that
