CHICAGO. March 20. The "Daily News
prints the following from its St. Peters
Mobilization of the last man and
spending of the last ruble to beat Japan
Is a mere bluff. The Czar's treasury is
empty, the army Is annihilated and
new one cannot be raised.. Nicholas him
self and nine-tenths of the people desire
peace. The Alexieff clique is fighting;
for existence and is strongly .opposing
the better informed statesmen. General
Bjetzkl said to the Dally News corre
spondent this morning:
"To speak of continuing the war would
be inaccurate; it would be more correct
to talk of beginning. It is not enough
to have a hew commander. AVe must
have a new army, new ammunition and
a new railroad. Where are we to get
them? Even if wo had them, it would
be impossible to think of assuming the
offensive. General Linlevitch is con
demncd to act on the defensive. Is it
possible that Russia can look with any
degree-of -confidence to the Baltic fleet
to .save the situation? Rojcstvensky'a
squadrons are weak and without proper
sea base. They would have to risk all
on a, single battle."
Yellow Peril Dragged Out Again
France is. called on by the jingoes to
aid .Russia by force, if necessary, to orjng
the Black Eea fleet, through the Dardan
ellcs. to lend naval bases to the Russian
fleet and to supply money. Should this
not be done, France is warned that tri
umphant Japan will shortly turn its at
tention to the capture of Indo-China. It
is also hinted that driving the Germans
out -of Klaochow Is part of the Mikado's
Roosevelt and Uncle 6am Cartooned
In the Novoe Vremya is published
pcriWtlonal story to the effect that the
Ignited States Is urging Japan to make
the hardest terms possible with Russia.
It says that the Standard OH Company"
has advanced a loan of $100,000,000 to the
Mikado on the security t the oil wells
in Sakhalin Island, which belongs to
Russia and has not yet been captured
, by the Japanese. This, according to the
Novoe "Vremya, vis selling the bear's skin
before the animal Is killed. America, it
assorts, is encouraging the growth of
Japanese power to accomplish the ruin
of Europe. The paper also publishes gross
caricatures of Roosevelt and ridiculous
pictures of "Uncle Sam."
Don't Blame Russian People.
Korsakoff, the celebrated Liberal pa
trlot, said this morning: "The Novoe
Vremya was chiefly responsible for the
war with Japan. It now Involves us la
further complication by Its ignorance in
confounding President Roosevelt with
the Standard Oil Company. Americans,
however, do not confound the autocracy
and the bureaucracy with the Russian
people. America will remain our friend
and will help to get us out of the trouble

Reports of a wide turning movement by
the Japanese arc no longor - being re

securing reliable information beyond the
limits within which scouting parties are
active, on account of the. defection

General Linlevitch, who also enjoys the

Between Armies Gives Little
Time for Fighting.
ST PETERSBURG, March ZL :17
A. M.) The latest dispatches from Man
churia indicate that the retreat of the
Russian army is being conducted unevent
fully. The last few days were unmarked
by any fighting of a serious nature. Both
the Russians and the Japanese at this
stage are probably considering- mat
inarching Is morS important than fight
ing. The Russians, however, are neg
lecting no precautions to Impede pur
suit and hamper the construction of per
manent Japanese lines of supply.
A dispatch received yesterday announc
ing that a cannonade had been near a
south of Tie Pass is apparently an error,
either as to direction or location.
M. Tuluxakoff. an Associated Press cor
respondent, who had been accompanying
General RennenkampfTs corps of the
eastern army, and whose dispatches sud
denly ceased with the beginning of the
retreat, has arrived at Gunshu Pass, hav- i
ing been wounded in the early stages of
the retirement and incapacitated for con
tinuing his work. '
According to an Associated Press dis
patch from Gunshu Pass, the' appointment
of General Linlevitch has made a good
impression with the army, the new com
mander enjoying the affection and con
fidence of the troops almost In the same
measure as General Kuropatkln. Both are
fighters and pot carpet knights.
EXPECT NEWS OF SURRENDER
Readers Between Lines Believe Bat
tle Is Fought on Flanks.
LONDON, March 2L Those who have
examined the reports that have reached
here during the last iS hours from the
Far East are certain that within a short
time word will arrive that the Russian
forces that are slowly -fighting their way
northward along the line of the railway
toward Harbin have been finally cut off
by the Japanese and that they will be
compelled to either give battle or surrender.
The Jaoanesa official advices, as pub
lished, deal entirely with the fight that
has been participated in by the rear
guard and say nothing about the fighting
along the flanks and at the head of the
retreating column. This secrecy Is be
lieved here to Indicate that movements
of importance are in progress andVlhat
until they have been finally carried out
all of the news that will he permitted to
filter through will be devoted to the de
tails of engagements already reported.

LINIEVITCH MAY BE AT HARBIN
General Believed to Have GonetAhead

LONDON. March 2L General Llnte
vltch's report to the Emperor that h
had Inspected the newly-arrived troops
causes much speculation In London as
indicating that he either has gone much
further north than bad been supposed
or that Russian reinforcements arc still
being sent south from Harbin. The lat
ter hypothesis is considered hardly like
ly, in view of the Tact that the Russians
are trying to effect the speediest possible
reltrement on Harbin. Clearly a rigorous
censorship is again being .enforced from
both the Russian and Japanese sides.
The SL Petersburg correspondent
the Morning Post declares that Russia-
is stubbornly prolonging a useless strug

favorable to her than would be possible
