Accuses Kuropatkin of Deceiv
SAID RUSSIA WAS READY
Refused Hearing In Court, He Re
reals Secret Documents in News
paper Discrepancy Between
the Acts and Testimony.
ST. PETERSBURG, Dec. 20. The court
having refused him an opportunity to re
fute onthe witness stand General Kuro
patkln's testimony at the trial of General
Btoessel that before the war with japaD
Count Witte had recommended the-abandonment
of Port Arthur, considering the
opening at Port Dalny had destroyed the
Importance or the fortress. Count Witte
has broken his long silence In a two
column letter to the Novoe Vremya.
It is an interesting disclosure of ex
cerpts from, secret documents, which
throw light upon the inner councils be
fore the war, and Reeks to prove that
Kuropatkin was guilty of misleading the
whole government by an estimate of Rus
sia's preparedness for war. In 1903, ac
cording to Count Witte, after a tour df
Inspection In the Far Kast, General Kuro
patkin, in a written report to the Em
"Two years ago we thought ourselves
ready to defend the Amur region and
North Manchuria. Today we cannot only
do that, but be perfectly confident of the
fate of Port Arthur."
Count Witte narrates that the site of
Port Dalny and the idea to create a com
mercial port there was suggested by Ku
ropatkin himself as a means of restrict
ing Port Arthur to military uses and at
the same time carrying out the promise
to open any acquired Chinese port to the
trade of all nations.
Count Witte multiplies Instances of dis
crepancy between Kuropatkln's official
acts and the General's testimony in the
Btoessel case. Ho also accuses him of
not having provided sufficient siege guns
at Port Arthur.
The Count promises sensational developments.

One of the most important defense wit
nesses thus far was John B. Hurst, ex
Pollce Judge of Harlan, Ky. Hurst testi
fied to the good character of the "moun
