REGARD DEFEAT AS COMPLETE.
London Papers Agree That Kuro
patkin Has Shot His Bolt.
London, Oct. 15. -The London pa
pers have to rely mainly on official re
ports for hews from the Far East, but
tbe dispatches thus far received regard
a completo Japaneso victory assured,
and editoralize from this point of view.
SayB the Daily Telegraph:
."General Kuropatkin has shot bis
holt. It seemed to be speeding well
toward tbe mark, yet missed it badly.
He has suffered not merely a repulee
but a disastrous defeat, while Japan's
incomparable soldiers under incompar
able generals -bate added another glori
ous page to the chronicle of war and
proved that Oyama is still Kuropat
kin's master in every branch of the art
The Dally Graphic describes General
Kuropatkin's move as a "gambler's
throw," and considers the frank blunt
ncss of his report to the emperor seems
to speak tho language of a man who
has done his best with the bungling
advice of some superior agency.
The Standard finds General Kuropat
kin's dispatch full of tragic meaning,
while the Daily News argues the Bus?
elan dash southward was prompted by
a desperate desire to relieve Port Arth
ur rather than :o Vicery Alexieff's
malign influence, the end of which, in
case of the fall of tbe fortiess, cannot
be far1 uistant.
Spencer Wilkinfou, in tbe Morning
Post, discussing strategic possibilities,
thinks the issue will turn upon which
side shall first become exhausted by
the protracted operations.
"Telegrams," be A e, "do' not yet
reveal the final decision, but they cer
tainly do not point to the Bcale turn
ing in Russia's favor. It remains to be
seen whether either army kept large
reserves ready to throw in when iV be
comes apparent that the forces engaged
have become exhausted."
COST OP FEEDING THE ARMY.
Commissary General Reports the
Expenses Reduced to a Minimum.
, Washington, Oct. 15. The annnal
report of Brigadier General J. F. West
on, commissary general of the army,
says the total cost of feeding the at my
during the past fiscal year we $8,821,
750, During the year the losses were
1 112,050 ra the Philippines; $7,407 on
tho transports and $120,863 in the
United States, Alaska, Porto Rico and
General Weston says it is difficult
and often impossible to prevent losses
of perishable stores. General Weston
urgently recommends the passage of a
bill by congress to givo authority to
all officers entrusted with the disburse
ment of subsistence funds to hold re
stricted amounts of such funds in their
personal possession. He says the ex
igencies of the public service require an
open disrecard of tho restriction of the
existing laws in cities where the treas
urer or an assistant tieasurer is located.
He urges legislation authorizing the
m e at public auction of accumulated
subsistence stores in good condition.
General "Weston says the problem of
feed inn the army in the Philippines
was a difficult one, but "it has been
successfully solved, and subsistence
affairs in the archipelago are now run
with system and economy".
The subsistence department, it is
Btated, was able to make a contract for
freah beef for the fiscal year, 1005, by
which an annual saving of over $140,
000 was effected. The running expenses
gradually havo been l educed to a min
imum, the report says, and a saving of
mora than $40,000 made in wages of
civilian employes alone.

er Gotama, which arrived hero early

ports that on August 4, when 40 miles

ished, Kuiangled in the wreckage were
