Oyama IsTBelng Strongly Reinforced,
and Conditions $re Really More
Favorable for ,a Dash Now
Than During Summer.
ST. PETERSBURG, Nov. 24 (2:25 A. M.)
Annearances ' again point to the possi
bility of a big battle south of Mukden. J
The Japaneser according to an official re-
port, have . received, a severe setback in
the vicinity ot- Siritsintiri, in which direc
tion they, apparently were attempting to
execute a wide turning movement. The
opinion hereVscarcely believes it possible
that the two great armies can winter less
than a rifleshot distant from each other.
though the "heavy defenses on each side
make it extremely difficult for either to
assume the offenslve.
it Is believed, however, that if the dead
lock Is to be broken General Kuropatkin
will let Field Marshal Oyama take the
Initiative, as the Russians have the better
of the present position, namely, a strong
line of defense and Mukden behind them,
making satisfactory "Winter quarters.
where the Russian reinforcements are
now accumulating for an advance next
Spring. The Japanese also are being
strongly reinforced.
The rivers are sufficiently frozen to per
mit of the movement of artillery and
commissariat trains, so that the country
actually is better adapted to a Japanese
advance than during the Summer.
RUSSIANS DESERT AT ARTHUR
They Also Assert the Defenders Are
Badly Demoralized.
LONDON, Nov. 23. A dispatch from To
klo to the Standard reports increasing
desertions from the Port Arthur garrison
into the Japanese lines, the stories the de
serters tell indicating the demoralization
of the Russian defenders. The same cor
respondent says the Russian defenses on
the seafront of Port Arthur no longer fire
on the approach of the Japanese warships.
A, Japanese correspondent, writing to
the Morning Post, betrays growing anx
iety concerning the Russian second Pa
cific, squadron, which probably is due to.
the strength of Port Arthur's resisting
power.' iH points -out tht Inconsistency
of Egypt In pennittlngVlce-Admlral Ro-
jestvenaky's ships to coal when not going
to a Russian port, compared with the re
fusal of such facilities when the Spanish
Admiral, Camara, wanted to take the
battleship Pelayo by the Suez route six
years ago, and maintains It is Great Brit
ain's business to compel Egypt to main
tain neutrality In the present case.
The Dally Telegraph's correspondent at
Port Said says the Russian warships
when berthed will be completely isolated
from other shipping, and that they will
'be allowed to take on water and provis
ions, but the correspondent adds It Is still
rather uncertain whether they will be per
mitted to coal, the authorities seeming to
be undecided on that point.
Copenhagen telegrams report that tho
supplementary detachment of the Rus
i slan second Pacific squadron is still de
tained at Skagon by storms.

'Japanese Vessels Built In Massachu-

TOKIO Nov. 23. Five submarine boats
arrived at Yokohama today.
(The submarine boats referred to in the
dispatch from. Toklo are probably the
' five boats shipped from Quincy , Point,
Mass., early in October last, overland to
the Pacific Coast. They were valued at
nearly $4,000,000. and were understood
to be Intended for Japan. The boats oc
cupied 17 steel fiat cars and six box cars.
There was not the slightest mark on any
of the cars to indicate the contents or
the destination, and those who made in
quiry on the subject received the stereo

Zemstvos Complete Their
Work and Leave'for Home,
FEEL."RUBICON IS CROSSED"
Asked as to Prospect for Concessions
Being Made, Empress Replies She
Does' Not Wish to See Her
Son Blown Up.
ST. PETERSBURG, Nov. 23. The
meeting of the Zemstvos Is ended, the
members today dispersing to their homes.
and in a few days the news of their ac
tion will be spread throughout Russia,
from the Finnish Gulf to the Caspian
Sea, from Poland to the Ural Mountains.
They are leaving in high spirits, confi
dent that no matter what the immediate
result, the days. November IS to 22, will
mark a turning point in Russian history.
"The Rubicon is crossed. No retreat Is
possible," is the unanimous sentiment.
At last night's Joint meeting or editors
and literary men and the Zemstvoists,
the greatest enthusiasm prevailed, ana
the fullest support was pledged to the
programme adopted.
Interior Minister Sviatopolk-Mlrsky has
Informed the Zemstvoists that he will
lay the memorial resolutions before the
Emperor, and while he made aio prom
lses regarding his personal recommenda
tions, tho Zemstvoists are satisfied the
Prince will not leave the Emperor In the
dark regarding the breadth, strength and
import of the movement. There Is an
Intimation that the Emperor has already
been advised of the action of the meet
ing, and has expressed himself as un
favorable to It.
According to a story which is told with
much drcustantiailty M. Pobledonostetf,
the procurer general of the holy synod.
Informed the Emperor than in his opinion
autocracy had reached the parting of the
ways. There was no middle course. He
must hold firmly to the old regime or
be prepared to grant a constitution. M.
Pobledonostseff is said to have contented
himself with an expression of this opin
ion without tendering any advice. There
upon, the story goes, the Emperor called
family council at which the opinion
was practically unanimous against yield
ing an iota.
Empress Fears for Son.
The young Empress, when asked for
her view, is said to have replied Drfefly:
I do not wish to see my son blown up.
Such stories, however, partako of the
nature of common gossip in St. Peters
burg, and although repeated in weu-ln-formed

Prominent members of the municipal
town councils are arranging a meeting
of representatives of all the principal
cities of Russia in order that the munici
palities take action In support of repre
sentatives of tho rural population. Au
thorization for such a meeting will be
asked. If refused, the meeting will be
held privately.
Prince Sviatopolk-Mirsky has issued In
structions forbidding the arrest of news
paper men for articles printed in the
newspapers. The zemsvos memorial ana
resolutions were presented to Minister of
the Interior Sviatopolk-Mirsky this af
ternoon.

State of Anarchy Has Been Epidemic
Throughout Macedonia.
WASHINGTON, Nov. 23. A report re
ceived In Washington through official
sources says a state of anarchy has be
come epidemic throughout .Macedonia,.
that public security is by no means re
stored, and that assassinations of Chris
tians not in sympathy with the Bulgarian
revolutionary movement arc of dally oc
currence. It says Greeks, as a rule, are
the victims, and large numbers of them
have been tortured with the result that
tho- Greeks have started bands across the
- .. - ... I
frontier of Greece with retaliation as their
purpose.
An extract from the report reads: "Pub
lic security is by no means restored In
Macedonia. So-called political murder,
that is, the assassination of Christians not
in sympathy with the Bulgarian revolu
tionary movement, are of dally occur
rence. Refusal to pay blackmail or the
indication of the whereabouts of bands
are reasons for these murders, of which
Greeks as a rule are victims. Since the
introduction of reforms hundreds of
Greeks of the better class have been tor
tured to death or burned alive by Bul
garian bands."
It also is stated that "these would-be
savers of the country take good care not
to molest the Turks.
Another extract from the report reads:
"Over 1000 men In the last month have
crossed Greek frontiers with the object of
protecting their own countrymen. The
result is tliat a state of anarchy has be
come prevalent throughout Macedonia."
