Russian Soldiers Order Women Off The Train Japanese Now Well i . . Along the Yalu River - 1 Other News. . Tokio, Feb. 16. The government is receiving additional circumstan tial reports of the alleged cruelty of the Russians toward Japanese ref uges from Manchuria. The Japan ese consul-general at Tien-Tsin has 1 just telegraphed the here, giving a recital of the story told by 13 women who have just arrived at Shan Hai Kwan. The I3 women were residing at Harbin and started eouth on February q. with 300 companions. One-half of these, with the women, reached Mukden on the ICtb and were ord ered to leave the train by Russian soldiers, who cruelly abused them and detained the party, which they tonally divided, the men being ord ered to proceed to Port Arthur. The women were Bent to, Niu Schwang, where United States Con eul Miller provided food and trans portation for them to Shan Hai Kwan. ' The women sav thev iw nnvaral Japanese' refugees cruelly beaten and wounded. They say the Rus sian soldiers robbed them of money and jewelry, come of the Japanese escaped punishment by biibing the soldiers. The Japanese government and people are deeply stirred by. these reports of refugees.. They point to their own correct attitude toward the Russians in Japan, and de nounce the Russians as barbarians. The sinking of the Nakonura Maru and the treatment of refugees is creating a feeling which betokenB a bitter and relentless war. It is improbable that the Japanese will retaliate in kind, whatever excesses the Russians commit. The Japanese are unable to un derstand why the men dnd women refugees from Harbin were divided. It is suggested that Russia in tends to hold tbe men at Port Ar thur in the hope of avoiding bom bardment. This, however, appears extremely improbable. New York; Feb. i7.

He succeeded more through the poor fire of the Russians than hisTjwn good management, leaving her sitter ship t) her fate. , According to the story told by the passengers on the Missouri, the Russian squadron steamed around the ill-fated vessel, firing at her with their big guns and hitting her mere than once. Finally, although the Japanese unarmed vessel had done her beet to surrender, a torpe do was launched from the Russian flagahip'which struck the craft al most amidships. There was a sud den upheaval, a cloud of steam, and 111 an nstant where there had been a vessel was only a mass of floating wreckage Tb Russians according to this report, made no attempt to rescue tae 33 persons on board, and they all perished miserably. The Mis souri was not close enough to be of any assistance to the victims, neith er was her commander in a position to defy the Russians '. if he desired to.; .

Japanese Soldiers Continue Aggretf- ; sive Warfare and Command the Situation Port Ar- ' thur Expected to Fall at Any Time. Washington, Feb. 16. Advices received here from the far east via London go far to confirm the report of the third battle at Port Arthur. which was. received at the state de partment last Friday afternoon. At that ' time special corresDondects sent out the news marked unofficial but which was believed to be cor rect except that " the details were lacking.' . This morning dispatches were re ceived from Chefoo stating that in the third engagement tbe Russians lost eight vessels Bunk and nine captured. It is also stated by the dispatch that one Japanese battle ship was disabled and ; three cruis ers, but to what extent it is not known. ' - It is further Btated that Port Ar thur is practically at the' mercy of the Mikado's troops and .may fall at any time if the occupancy of the stronghold has not already been completed. Another dispatch from Tien Tein states that there is fierce fighting betweeu the. Japanese and Russians near Wi Ju'on the Yalu river. No particulars are obtainable but ow ing to the fact that the Japanese are rushingJtroops into Manchuria, high omcials in the naval and War department believe that land troops have met in large forces and the news of the first land engagement will be forth coming so soon as cor respondents can overcome the cen sorship, which may only be accom plished by irksome journeys to oat lying cities-tree to a certain extent in the; transmission of reports. Ying Kow, Manchuria, Port of New Chwang, Feb 11. About mid night Monday, February, 8, Port Arthur was aroused by firing big guns. Six Japanese torpedo boats had approached within a mile of tbe Russian fleet and were showing pg. fannels aud signals just like those of the Russians. The Japan ese torpedo boats kept close to tbe Russian ships before they were 'dis covered. Each Japanese boat dis charged torpedoes, three of which tcok effect , striking thebattle ships Czarevitch and Retzlzan and the cruiser Pallada.- The damaged ships returned to the harbor to a void sinking.' Notwithstanding a continuous firejrom ships and forts, four Jap anese torpedo boats escaped. One however, was sunk, and another which was in a Binking condition, was deserted by ner crew and was afterwards captured by the Rus sians. Several Japanese cruisers could be seen in the distance, and the re mainder of the Japanese fleet was still farther off, lying eastward and showing searchlights. - After the retirement of the Jap anese torpedo boats the Russian cruiser equadroo, 6nder Admiral Mokompeky. followed to investigate and then returned. Action ceased at 3 a. m. The loss on the Russian ships was eight killed and 20 injur ed. Apart from the disablement of the three Rns?iaa ships the damage done to the fleet and forts was not very great. There were many RuS' sian torpedo boat destroyers in the harbor, but they were not ready to resist the attack. Tbe Japanese, in tact created a great deal of sur prise, not only by their unexpected onslaught, but by the promptness and bravery with which they acted. On Tuesday morning news arriv ed from Dalny that the Japanese fleet was steering westward in at tack formation. It came in sight at 11 a. m. There were in all 15 ships six battle ships, six first class cruisers and three second-class cruisers. : The Russians had-r3 large yes-, sels, under Admiral Stark on the flagship Petropavlovak and Rear Admiral Prince Kokomompsky' on the flagbiip Peresivl, including the Pallada and the Czarevitch, the lat terthe flagship of Rear-Admiral Mollas, and the Retzivan, which was lying eground across the inner harbor tutraiice.
