these figures have continued by an
odlcial dipatch. Fighting, it is
added, is still going on in the vici

from Tokio:
Kin-Chou and all the heights in
Its vicinity have been taken and
our truops are pushing the Russians

"The fighting which culminated
In the Japanese occupation of Kin
Chou was practically conHned to an
