ClE.FOO , Feb. 8.-A large force of Japanese -
flee troops were landell last nigh to the cast
of this town , and this morning began nn attack .
tack on the fortifications on the eastern
part of the city. The Japs arrived nt Nlng-
lint , I town bztween here and Wel-Ilal-Wel ,
Y ° 8terday , anti began a bombardment of the '
western side of that town. This alarmel1
the people In Che.l oo , and they nit armed
themselves at once The gates of the city
were closed and barricaded , and even the
foreigners carried arms. The reason for this
fear was an impression which prevailed that
the , attack on Nlng.nal fortifications was a
feint on the part of the Japanese to cover a
new lanilng ( of their forces.
This theory was last night proved to be cor-
rect when the troops appeared on the east
of this town , and. as stated , began an at-
' tack on the fortifications. There Is Intense
excitement here now , and 1 big fight Is expected -
pecled between the assaulting Japanese and
the Chinese , who will have to defend their
The Japanese shp/ ! which appeared near
Nlng hal let soon afterward with cut doing
any damage. This confirmed the jllt.ession
that the attack on Nlng lal was only r. feInt
of the Japanese : to cover 1 landing of their
forces at sonic other place and the people here
were convinced that the capture of some ether
place I contcmlllated. Every precaution was
taken to defend the city.
Another version of the appearance of the
Japanese shlp3 elf Nlng hal Is that they were
chasing two torp2do boats supposed to cntaln !
Admiral Ting , , .tho commander of the Chinese
naval forces at Wel.Hal-Wel , and Captain
ldcciure , the merchant marine , who was appointed -
poInted lstant to Admiral Tlng. These two
ofcer were mid . to be escaping from Wei-
Il&-Wei ! on board the two torpedo bOlts and
the Japanese are reported to have sunk both
vessels at a poInt northward of Che-Fee. , According .
cording to the advices which have reached
here tram 'Yel-Hal-Wel , only the CMn Yuan
of the entire naval squadron at Wei-IIai-Wel
: was sunk by the Japaneee. The sister slur
. of , that vessel , the Ting Yuen , Is mid to be
- nshore. The Clnese } inhabitants or this cty !
areleaving _ by the thousands. !
' Tie Japanese landed a force of troops near
: hero ast ] evening WIth the intention of capturing -
turing the city . The landing was mad about
' ten unites east of Che-Foo and Immediate advance -
vance upon the city was ordered. As this die-
, Jatch Is ant the Japanese are attacking the
torts defending the east part of Che.I oJ. In-
tense excitement prevails here and I Is ex-
pecte that a severe engagement will occur
, . The Japanese have occupied all the posItons
at : Voi-Ilab.\Vei and have captured or sunk
. the whole of the Chinese northern fleet- The
Japanese , during the nIght or Monday lact
February 4 , cleared Wel-Hal-Wel harbor of
. all torpedoe and submarine mines by the
skillful use of ther ! small torpedo boats , and
the steam launches frem the
war ships , whc !
small craft grappled for ant cut the wire connecting -
nectng the submarine mines with the shores.
j When these dangerous obstructions
obstructens were removed -
. moved the fleet . of Japanese war ships made '
: : n' splendId dash for the harbor and attacked
1' the Chinese feet with such ski that the
, battle ship Thug Yuen was sunk These tac-
' \ - tics were , repeated during the night of Feb-
, mary I and the Chen 'Yuen , Lal Yuen and
other Chnee ! war ships were blown up and
the remainder oC the ChInese feet was cap-
, " tured.
i Following up this splendid succees , the
' Japanese cmpeted ] the capture WelHal-Wel

NI1\V YOR , Feb. S.-The Teutonic hal

the La Gascogne.
hope for La Gocogne was buoyed for I
time by a report from Fire Island that I
big steamer was sighted oil that point about
6 o'clock tommigimt Nothing further was seen
of the vessel until 7:30 : , when the marine
observer at Sandy Hook saw 1 steamship's
lights outside the harbor. The vessel did not
signal , and , ns the weather became thick , she
was lost sight of
At 8:25 : p. m. the observer again saw time
vessel at anchor. lie flashed a lantern , but
could get no signal from her .It Is supposed
that shl might be either the Teutonic , Hhlne-
land or Manitoba , all of which were over-
due. I It was Ln Oascogno Captain DaUle-
Ion would hate signaled , on account of his
bing eo long overdUe. Fear for the safety
of La Oascogne Is beginning to fill the mlnts
. the continue to
of ship men. While agents contnue
assure the friends of passengers that the
steamship Is safe , the belief Is forcing itself
on their minds that something extraordinary
has happened to time French ship An eager i
multitude hovered about tie omce of the
compan , on Bowlng Green , today waiting
for some word of the missing vessel No
word of consolation from time ofcials of

The storm of lat night was an unusually
severe one. All night time life-saving pltrol-
men were on the lookout for In011ng
vessels and the snow was driven Into their
faces by a howlng northeasterly gale , which
chilled them through to the bone. The
electric buoys In the Gedney channel were
extinguished by 'he Ice and I would have
been difficult for any Incoming vessels to
have steered their way across the bar. The
steamer Nacoche , which cleared for Havana
yesterday spent the night at anchor In
Grvesend bay , waiting for more favorable

land having been broken by thc vast quantity

by their stnUons. Men not only filled the
platforms , but clung on outside the railing
of thc rear plntorms , In trI1 \ of being tbrown
off at time curves.
On the North and East' rivers where the
stream had 1 clear sweep , and where the
rtmmmning cakes of Ice a'dded to the danger ,
time ferry boats stopped running when time
storm was nt its fiercest. They made halt
hourly trips during the nlht ; , and just be.
fore dawn stopped running aitogcther. The
greatest danger . was experienced In the ice
cakes In the river. T1e slips were fled

The Jersey Central railway was completely
blocked. Up to 9:30 : no cars had reached '
