martial spirit at Port Arthur since the

was apparent, and he expressed the hope
that the Russians would emerge boldly

The house unanimously adopted a resolu

Russians Will Not Permit Correspond
ent to Stay In Port Arthur.
ST. PETERSUURG, March 29. A war
correspondent of the Russky Vledomostl,
writing from Harbin, Manchuria, says he
has not been permitted to proceed to Port
Arthur, and adds he will not be allowed
to go to the front from Hurbln until April
1. All the correspondents have been ex
pelled from Port Arthur because one of
them mentioned In his dispatches Impor
tant information regarding the movements
of Russian troops. ,
. Forecasting the result of the war In the
far east the Novostl declares there is no
'more doubt as to who will be the eventual
victor than there was at the commencement
tf the Oreeco-Turkish, the Spanlsh-Amer-
lean or the Boer wa.
."For Japan, tha war ts a life and death
struggle," continues the Novostl. "It places
everything On one card. For Russia, It Is
really only a colonial war, and even de
feat would leave the empire not greatly
affected, while success would be sure to
'Mean a great, . stimulus tp the Russian
colonisation of Manchuria, where.it Is rea.
so nubia to suppose many soldiers will settle
After the struggle la over. -,
"But," adds the paper, "Russia should
not pay too high a price for this colonial
Empire and, therefore, should conserve aa
'fas aa possible the army and the fleet."
' .The Novostl publishes a long article on
rthe Jewish question, combatting the Asser
tions of some antl-Bcmltlc newspapers that
the Odessa Jews are doing everything to
precipitate a repetition of the Klshlneft
. affair by expressing sympathy with ti.e
Japanese. The Novostl-denounces the alle
gations as monstrous falsehoods, declaring
tbat the Jews throughout the empire have
patriotically volunteered their servloes, and
attacks the antl-semitlcs for attempting
COhstantly to sow race hatred. .

It his not yet been decided whether the
British consul will remain at New Chwang,
but this matter is not considered of serious
Importance. It Is pointed out at the for

nor Great Britain aver considered New
Chwang neutral, and when Secretary Hay'
note was received It was tacitly admitted
that New Chwang might quite likely be
one of the points of a Japanese attack and
the Ruaslana are considered quite within

WASHINGTON, March 29 The Japanese

About 8:30 a. m. of the 27th of March th

ships, escorted by the torpedo boat dn-

reached, outside of Port Arthur, and, with-

steered straight towards the entrance of
the harbor. .
At about two marine leagues from the
entrance the ."bottling up" squadron was
discovered by the enemy. Thereupon the
shore batteries and guardshlp showered
hot fires upon the squadron, but In splto

Russian embnssy point out that the ne
gotiation following the progress of Sec
retary Hay's note on China left Manchuria
within the tone of military operation. and
they say that the substitution of military
for civil authority followed a a result of
the military regime In Manchuria.
It la also pointed out that Rula gave
notice to the foreign governments before
laying torpedoes in the harbor of New
Chwang and gave notice also of other
defensive measures. It is maintained that
since this brought no protest, Russia's right
to adopt all the necessary defensive meas
ures la conceded.
FIRED FIRST SHOT OF THE WAR,
Thla Honor Claimed by the Korlets,
Which Japs Stink.
ST. PETERSBURG, March 29 According
to a letter received from an officer or
the Russian gunboat Korletx. which was
destroyed by the Japanese at Chemulpo,
his ship technically fired the first shot of
the war, but this shot was not flred until
after the Japanese had fired three tor
pedoes in an effort to sink the Korelti.
The officer writes that on February 8,
without knowing that there had been even
rupture In diplomatic relations, the
Korelta left Chemulpo for Port Arthur with
dispatches from M. Pavloff, the RuHttlnn
minister to Corea, and met the Japanese
cruiser and torpedo squadron while still
In neutral waters.
Being unsuspicious the Korelts steamed
between the two divisions of the squadron
with the tarpaulins still covering its guns,

to fire, and three shots were flred. The

Peking that the Russian authorities have
declared martial law at New Chwang and
have so formally notified all foreigners.
Mr. Conger's message makes no reference
to the reported hauling down of foreign

assume that If this had been done it Klmply
means that Russia has assumed the re-

property belonging to the belligerents, but
that no effort will be made to Interfere

The blanks to be Ailed out 'this year in
corporate about twice as many questions
as those used under the old law, there be
ing eighty-six altogether. Th questions
are all in one blank, rather than on two
sets, as heretofore, but the man who lives

arate columns In each blank for these sets
ot figures. The limit of the levy this year
