Russian Vessels -Take
Refuge at Chefoo,
Four Torpedo Craft Chased
by' Japanese.
Heavy Guns on 203-Meter Hill Have
Drives Out All the Czar's Ships
Ceaseless Storming by
Besiegers Reported.
CHEFOO. Jan. 2. (9:13 A- M.)-Four
Russian torpedo-boat destroyers, the
Skory, .Stratni, Vlastnl and Serdlty. ac
companied by a large launch, arrived
here this morning from Port Arthur.
Two other destroyers are reported to
have gone to Tslngtau.
The activity aboard the destroyers
seemingly indicates an intention o put
ting to sea again.
What appears to be Japanese destroyers
can be seen -with the aid of glasses in
the dim distance.
A bundle of dispatches was sent ashore
from one of the destroyers. The captain
of the Stratni says that they left Port
Arthur because Jt had been Impossible
for ships to live In the harbor since the
Japanese captured 208-Meter Hill.
The destroyers encountered no Japan
ese warships on the way to this port
For the past five days the Japanese are
reported to have been ceaselessly storm
ing Port Arthur on all sides.
Japanese- Dig Up Prisoners From the
Debris. f
"WASHINGTON. Jan. l.-Cable advices
received at the Japanese Legation today
are summarized as follows:
"The Port Arthur Admirals admit that,
as prearranged, they blew up the para
pet of Sungshu Fort at 10 A. M. Sunday,
whereupon they assaulted and securely
occupied the whole fort at 11 A. A
part of the enemy fled toward the heights
eouth of the fort, while the other part
was burled in the earth as a result of
the explosion.
"When the earth was removed, two of
ficers and 160 Russian soldiers were
picked out and made prisoners. They
stated that there still were 160 Russians
interred by the explosion. The trophies,
which consist of field and machine guns,
etc.. are still under investigation.
"Saturday evening our detachment fac
ing the cast fort .of the Panlung Moun
tain blew up a part of the old inclosure
of the forts.
"The central corps, driving the enemy
before them, occupied H fort at 7 A. M.
on January 1, and then captured the fort
of Panlung Mountain.
"Thus the whole line of Panlung Moun
tain and H forts were brought under our
occupation. The right wing commenced
a bombardment at 6 A. M. and occupied
the heights south of San Tanitaua vil
lage, despite the stubborn resistance of
the enemy."
Believed That the Fortress Will Soon
Be Capitulated.
TOKIO, Jan. 2 (10:30 A. M.). General
Yogi's telegram announcing that General
Stoessel was prepared to discuss terms of
capitulation reached Toklo early this
morning, but was not made public until
10 o'clock. Its receipt sent a thrill of
pleasure through the officials, who have
long awaited such a communication. The
news is Just reaching the general public,
and It is expected that the day will bring
ample evidences of popular Joy.
Besides the barest announcement of the
receipt of General Nogi's telegram noth
ing is known about the terms or condi
tions proposed. The fall of Wantai, pop
ularly known as Signal Hill, following
the loss of Rlhlung. Sungshu, "H" fort
and now Panlung. Is regarded here as a.
clear Indication that the Port Arthur gar
rison has lost its power of serious resis
tance. The facts do not reveal It, but It Is
probable that the back of the Russian
defense was broken when 203-Meter Hill
was captured.
The Russians desperately sought to
retako that eminence andi sent In
fantry and marines against it in a se
ries of counter attacks, fruitlessly los
ing thousands of men. Following that,
the extension of the Japanese right
compelled the Rossians to fight over
an extended line and made concentra
tion difficult.
Despite the lack of knowledge of
General Stdcssel's letter it is confi
dently believed that there will be no
hitch and that there will be a prompt
capitulation, ending one of the most
remarkable sieges In history.
Arthur Garrison Brought to Direst
CHEFOO. Jan. 2, Noon. Captain Kar
low. commanding the torpedoboat de
stroyer Vlastnl. which put into this har
bor thjs morning from Port Arthur, says
the Japanese expected to enter Port Ar
thur Tuesday, but- General Stoessel, who
was sick, will resist with the remnant
of the garrison on Llao Tla Mountain.
Captain Karlow denies the report from
Toklo that General Stoessel offered to
surrender yesterday.
The Russians blew up two of their
own forts near the railway and completed
the destruction of the cruiser Bayan.
The destroyers Smlrll and Bolki also left
Port Arthur yesterday. Their fate is
Port Arthur is described by today's
arrivals as .a living hell. The hospitals
are said to be nearly all destroyed.
Receiver Gets Trunk and Satchel.
CLEVELAND, Jan. 1. The mysterious
trunk and hand-ttchcl belonging to Mrs.
Chadwlck. which was taken from the
Holland House in New York while the
woman was stopping there prior to Tier
arrest, arrived in this city today, con
signed to Receiver Locker. Neither of
Die rccepldclcs has as yet been opened.
Receiver Ioeser left for New Tork to
night, and It may be they will not be dis

and bonaflde papers.
Several Programme's Have Been Ad
vanced, None Definitely Decided-
ST. PETERSBURG. JaxC 1. With refi
crenco to the' report published in the .Uni-.
ted States under a St, Petersburg date
that Emperor Nicholas has petitioned tho
expenditure of JSO.000,000 for rebuilding the
navy, the fact is that Russia's naval proi
gramme has not yet been definitely de
cided or promulgated. All that is posi
tively known-Is that the plans cover a
long period of years.
The absolute necessity of a sea power
is one of Russia's latest lessons of the
present war, and with practically the
complete detraction of the Port ,Arthur
fleet the government Is determined not
only on filling the gap but on building up
a fleet which will keep Russia fully
abreast of other first-class powers. The
press has unanimously supported the
plans for the regeneration and reorgani
zation of the navy, and to thi3 end it has
been determined to build trp great ship
yards at home.
The figures given, however, are not con
firmed. The Rusk. December 30, specu
lated upon a five-year programme with
an expenditure of 5250,000,000, and on De
cember 3 upon a 15-year programme and
$730,000,000 expenditure.

NEW YORK, Jan. L The torpedo-boat
Gregory, which, according to published
-reports, was built for the Russian gov
