Defeat at Mukden is Believed Will

THIRD BATTLE OF THE WAR
For th Third Time Kuropstkin Has
Been Outgeneraled and Outfought by
the Superior Tactics of the Japanese
Forces Showing Their Superiority.
Tokio, March 11. The Intelligence
did not mu'h St. Petersburg that the
Russian center had been broken, or if
it did reach there it was kept a pro
With the lengthening of the Japanese
line by the enveloping movement, it
wa hoped at St. Petersburg tout
Kuropatkin would be able to concen
trate his troops and break through
some weak spot in the cordon; but the
hope has not been realized, as he was
unable to take the offensive. The
scouts of both wings of the Japanese
army were in touch 40 miles north of
Moukden, which practically brought
the horns of thj Japanese crescent to
gether and completed the envelop
ment of the Russian army. If this Is
the case, the Japanese will soon be in j
possession of the railroad, leading from
Moukdei to Harbin and the Russian
line, of retreat wil be severed, Thai
means either the annihilation of Kuro
patkin's army or Its surrender. If it
refuses to surrender, only fragments of
it can hope to escape. A defeat of
that kind was decisive, of course, and
Oyama has evidently planned that it
shall be so.
This is the third time for the two
armies to engage in a pitched battle
under these two leaders. At Liao Yang
Kuropatkin was forced to retreat after
ten days' hard fighting. He succeeded
then in balking envelopment, which
the Japanese attempted, and he ex-

Woman Found a Pearl While Eating

Suit to Recover in Court.
Hamburg, March 11. Is the tinier
of a pearl in an oystcrshell served in
a restaurant entitled to it or does it
beling to the proprietor of the restau
rant. The first bench of the superior
court here has taken the question un
der consideration. The facts as told
in court are that a woman beginning
her dinner at a restaurant with oysters
bit on something hard and took a piece
of pearl out of her mouth. Afterward
a jeweler offered the woman $150 for
the pearl and the proprietor of the
restaurant claimed the gem. The
woman refused to surrender the pearl
and the proprietor brought suit to re
cover it, averring the bones of fowls

Commencing Monday night, the tar theater will present to the people
of Astoria a programme of superior i j.cellence, having secured some of the

the best teams ever brought to the if y Is the Washer Pros., the renowned
and original boxing midgets whose p'. 'ormunce has won plaudits In every
house In which they have performed. Mods Silvnno, the muslcul artist and
shadowgrapher, is a wonder and to be appreciated must be seen. Meaney
