The Outcome of Which , If the Japanese Succeed In Crossing Kuropatkln's
Rear , Must Mean Utter Crushing of Russian Forces Oyama's Move
Tuesday Was Feigning.
Toklo , March 16. The Japanese oc
cupied Tie pass at midnight March 15.
Details of the occupation have not
yet been received.
The Japanese are In hot pursuit of
the Russians.

from the front la again very serious.
Oyama Is striking a blow at the de
feated Russian army. In splto of the
exhaustion of bis forces , after a long
twelve days' struggle , ho lias been
able to organize a fresh turning move
Tuesday's attack upon the Russian
advances at Fan river , It Is now ev
ident , was only a feint while the Jap
anese columns -were being worked
around to get a position to fall upon
the Russians.
A dispatch to the Associated Press
from Auntokup , eight miles north of
Tie pass , dated March. 15 , says that
a desperate battle Is raging.
Kuropatkln Taken by Surprise.
That Kuropatkln was taken by sur
prise is a fair inference from the man
ner In which , Tuesday night , ho aban
doned his position , leaving so hurried
ly that he was obliged again to burn
his stores.
With the Japanese In pursuit be
hind the Russian army at Tie pass ,
Kuropatkln's position Is extremely
Once the Japanese are across his
rear In force , Kuropatkln would have
to cut his way out or surrender.
New Chwang , Marrh Iti. The Japa
nese occupied Tie pass Wednesday
St. Petersburg , March IB. Flanking
tactics by the Japanese apparently
are in piogiess again , the Assoclat
, d Press correspondent , who leinatns
at Tie Pass ; telegraphing that General
Mlstchenko on March 14 briskly
engaged a Japanese force on the Rus
Elan right. It is possible that the
attacking force was a Japanese col-
nmn which disappeared from observa
tlon during the battle of Mukden.
The Japanese do not appear to have
renewed the frontal attack , the'flemon-
stratlon on Tuesday having shown
that the Russian" were prepared to
make a determined resistance.
The censor's office has already been
removed to Santoupe , a point eight
' miles north of Tie pass , and there are
Intimations that It may soon be estab
ll'shed even farther north The As
sociated Press correspondent though
Baying nothing regarding the commls
aarlat arrangements for the troops
declares that the newspaper corre
spondents have practically been
tarved out 6f Tie pass. This may
perhaps be'an Indication of the
amount of food available for the army
Immense quantities of which were de-
Btroyed at Mukden , where practically
the entire reserve commissariat had
b en accumulated.
According to Chinese reports , the
covernor of Mukden gave a banquet
In honor of the Japanese generals aft
er their triumphal entrance Into ti
city , and a Russian journalist wire. *
that owing to the occupation of Hut-
den by the Japanese , Russia's pres
tige with the Chlnesa has been utter
ly destroyed. He say * even tri
umphant victory would not restore
Russia to the place In the estimation
of tha Chinese which she heTH a. year
It IB rumored that an order for an
other general mobilization Is being ;
prepared and that a new army will be
forwarded to Manchuria as fast as
possible by railway and summer
steamer service.
Squadron of Twenty-two Vessels After
Russian S'econd Pacific Squadron.
Ivondon , March 1C. A steamer ar
riving at Bingaporo reports having
passed a squadron of twenty-two Japanese
aneso warships about twenty miles
east of the entrance to the straits of
Malacca. Two Japanese cruisers and
two auxiliary cruisers previously ar
rived at Singapore. Presumably thcsa
vessels are on their way westward In
search of tha Russian second Pacific
squadron , last reported In Madagas
car waters.
The appearance of Admiral Togo's
fleet In the track that would he use'd
in any attempt by Admiral Rojestven-
eky to make for Vladivostok is the
most Interesting news of the day. Ac
cording to the Dally Mall's correspond
ent at Singapore , who visited the-
ths officers wore unusually retl-
n'wo Jalancso omcera landed
ii0' iferred with the Japanese con-
ul and It was understood by the cor
respondent that the squadron would
hortly sail again , as It required noth-
UB. The presumption here Is that Ad
miral Togo acquired some Information
concerning Rojcstvcnsky's Intended
So far as known In I/indon Rojest-
vensky's squadron Is still off the coast
of Madagascar , but as the Ice In 'the
jarbor of Vladivostok Is probably Ue-
ginning to give , the Russian admiral
must soon make a decision whether
o dash for Vladivostok or return to
[ Russia. Naval experts here belief *
kat Togo will not come much farther
n quest of the Baltic squadron , on
the ground that ho cannot afford to
run unnecessary risks.
No further news bus been received
of the fighting on the Tan river and
llttlo Importance Is attached to tbls
Isolated repulse of the Japanese. The
London papers continue In the belief
that to all intents and purposes the
campaign Is closed , that It will bo
next to Impossible for Russia to put
a new army In the field , anil that the
talk of doing so Is mere- bluff , Intend
ed to Influence the inevitable negotia
tion of peace terms. It is also TTe-
lleved that the French govt-rnment
has utilized the financial lever to con
vey to Russia her view that It Is the
proper course to seek to arrange
terms The rumor persists that Rtis
'a ' has acquainted France with her
willingness to discuss terms , but not
on the basis of an Indemnity , which
Russia contends would ruin her pres
tlge. claiming that she would rather
continue the war than submit to such
a demand.

Bonllmcnt of ( he Republican loaders
Is that tlio treaty should ho with

Ono alternative , which In the dis

merely an excuse for Inaction. Is that

adopted nnd the Democrats felt that
If all tlio Information oblnlnablo

would ratify the treaty. The minor
ity party , on tlio other hand , took t. . .
position that no Information could ho

principle Involved In the treaty and
that It Is Idle for the Republican * to
