Captain Lectures on Battle of Mukden and Siege of Port Arthur. The lecture to the cadets on the Hussian-Japaneso war, which was con tinued laBt night from Wednesday night, proved even more interesting and Bpoctacular than the one preced ing it Many of the pictures were taken under the Russian fire in the Japanese trenches, and showed actual war conditions close up under and Inside the RusBlan forts. In a short talk preliminary to the lantern pictures, Captain Yates Bpoke of the causeB of the assault and the morale of the troops and losses on both sides Brought on by the deBire for revenge on the part of the Jap anese, since Port Arthur had been taken from them by the Russians, the assault and defense wore carried on for a year, without the display of any great generalship on either side. The soldiers of both armies workod under great hardships yet the discipline) was good. At the battle of Mukden, however, where 120,000 men were loBt, the Bplrit and determination of the entire siege was illustrated. This was tlio great est battle in the history of the world, lasting for ten days, with 400,000 men on each aide fighting over a battle line of ninety miles. It showed the great strain on the soldiers in modern warfare. In which hlgh-exploslvo-power shells, attacks at all times of day and night, and the strict discipline neceBBary, all combined to depict the horrors of war.
