Vast Force for Far East.
St. Petersburg, Sept. 26. The di
vision and reorganization of the Man
churian army, regarding which there
have been rumors ever since the bat
tle of Liao Yang, was officially an
nounced in an imperial rescript ai-
pointlng Major General Grippenberg,
commander of the Third army corps.
In tho province of Vllna, as command
er of the Second army corps, now be
ing mobilized for Immediate dispatch
to the far east, leaving General Kotir
opatkln in command of the First
army. The emperor is personally con
vinced that tho political, as well as
the military, prestige of the empire Is
at stake and that every other consid
eration must give way before the exi
gencies of war. Tho resources of the
empire. In men and money must be
drained if necessary In order to turn
tho scale and vindicate the iMiwer of
Rusfl;.. The reorganization amounts
to formal notice to the world, as the
emperor frankly explains in his re
script, that he Intends to vastly In
crease the number of troops at tho
theater of war In order to force tho
struggle to a successful Issue In tho
shortest possible time. It Is Intended
to silence definitely all talk of for
eign Intervention by the announce
ment that Russia means to fight out
tho Issue with Japan on the field of
battle. Probably 300,000 men will be
plnced in the field. Five corps, the
Third. Fourth. Fifth, Eighth and Six
teenth, are nlready destined for tho
front, and It is expected that five more
corps will be sent forward. Eventual

tion In the rescript that General
Kouropntkln will have command of
