ST. PETERSBURG, June 10. Remote as
now appear the chance that the Japanese
fleet (wlll ever be In a position to venture
up the Baltic and make a demonstration
against the Russian capital, or that a
European power will be drawn Into the
war, Russia evidently Is taking nothing
for granted. The possibility of the fall ot
Port Artbufor a disaster to -the Baltic
squadron, after the latter sails for th
far east, have been considered and no pre
caution will be omitted to protect St.
Petersburg against attack. The fortifica
tions of Riga (in the southern part of the
Oulf of RJga)(and Reval (at the entrance
of the Oulf of Finland) have been strength
ened, solo new guns of the latest pat
terns have been mounted In the fortres of
Cronstadt and a chain of water batteries,
running out on either side of the shores
of the Gulf of Finland, will guard the en
trance to the mouth of the Neva.
Tills system of fortifications was suffi
cient to discourage the attack planned by
the British fleet during the Crimean war.
In addition, however, shore batteries have
been constructed near Cranlsnbaum (on the
Oulf of Cronstadt, nineteen miles from St.
Petersburg) and Sestroryetsk (on the
Bestra river and seventeen miles from St.
Petersburg), probably as a precaution
against landings, as it la believed the forts
are able to stop the advance of a hostilo
fleet. The approaches to Cronstadt are
also being mined and merchant ships are
being forbidden to enter the port without
a pilot to conduct them through the mine

In the vicinity of Feng Wang Cheng. The
Japanese outposts, composed as usual of
infantry and cavalry, supported by artil

succeeded In reoocupying Salmatse, which
Russian detachment has evacuated, fall

But It does not appear that General Kurokl
has yet decided to abandon his waiting at

obliges to remain at Llao Yang Instead of
advancing south, for fear that he would

OOO Alleged Silence
Nrnrw YORK. June 10. Mrs. Hannah
Ellas today was discharged on motion of
Assistant District Attorney Rand at the
conolueion of the tesUmony of John R.
Piatt, the old millionaire who caused her
arrest for extortion.
John R. Piatt, the plaintiff, proved a dis
appointing witness. To questions bearing
directly on' the charges on which the
woman's arrest had beea maae am an
"I don't know."
His helplessness and his apparently un
reliable memory surprised mose wno at
tended his examination. He did not remem
ber whether ho had given Mrs. Ellas large
sums of money during the last ten years,
as charped, and did not remember signing
certain papers in connection with his
charges against her.
The ordeal was a trying one for tne-oia
man and his replies became scarcely
audible toward the last. As soon .as he had
left the witness chair Assistant District
Attorney Rand said:
"Tour honor, I think the parties to this
miserable scandal-ought to be allowed to
stew In their own grease. There Is no evi
dence before you that will possibly serve to
hold this woman on a charge of extortion.
I recommend that she be discharged."
Rearrested oa Second Charge.
The magistrate thereupon discharged the
woman. Immediately afterward Mrs. Ellas
was rearrested on a writ in the civil suit
originally brought against her by Mr.
Piatt to recover $685,000. She wag released
a few minutes later on $20,000 ball, and was
escorted by detectives through the crowded
corridor to the street, where her carriage
was waiting. ,
When Mr. Piatt, feeble snd trembling snd
apparently daaed, was helped from the
building the crowd hooted and biased.
Mr. Plntt was the first witness. He said
he was 88 years old and lived In New York
since 18G5. He first met Hannah Ellas at
the time the volunteer firemen came on
from Ban Francisco, about fifteen year
Some time ago he agatn met -the woman
at a Third avenue mnsssge establishment
through an advertisement, and had kept
up the acquaintance since, his relations
with tier had been of a tender character
and Tie had bought for her a house snd had
given hen, large sums of money.
Piatt Afraid of Keareas.
Mr. Piatt would not give a direct answer
to a question as to whether he had paid
the woman more than $600,000 since Jan
uary, 1PM, but did remember that he gave
her $7,600 lost month. This payment was
made, he said, because Mrs. Kllae told him
she was being sued and would have to go
to court and expoae him unless the money
