PORT ARTHUR EASY
GAME FOR JAPANESE
LondonV Feb. 12- H. W. Wilson, In
the Daily Mall, says: 'It is to be as
sumed that by this time Admiral Togo
has completed the first part of his pro
gram and driven to defeat what Rus
sian ships are Intact within the harbor
of Port Arthur. His next step will, bo
to inflict on the arsenal and dockyard
damage equal to that he has - inflicted
on the Russian fleet To do this with
out risking his own fleet, 1 not so diffi
cult as may appear. It is thought that
the Japanese will be able to cause the
Russians serious Inconvenience and pos
sibly utter destruction by a long range
"If they do not want to- risk their
ships they can lie off the harbor at long
distance and throw shells over the high
ground into the water behind or bring
up mortar and howitser boats, which
they are believed quietly to have pro
vided, knowing from their previous oc
cupation of Port Arthur exactly what
the task will be. It would be child's
play for them to place their fleet So as
to make their guns effective." . " .

ANXIOUSLY AWAITING NEWS
OF LATE JAPANESE VICTORY
London, Feb. 12, 6 p, m. Another dispatch from Tien Tsin states that Port Arthur has fallen before the
Japanese "forces. No details are given of the final engagement that must have been bloody ; and annihilat
ing. The report received late yesterday that the Russians lost seven war vessels In the fight yesterday is
credited here, and it would seem that after such a marine victory the forces of the mikado would have lit
tle trouble In landing and taking the forts. , 7 -
. . Alleged details of the engagement yesterday are received today from Shanghai and state that after the
vessels referred to were disabled by the Japanese, the remainder of the fleet took to flight pursued by "
a detachment sent by Admiral Toko who remained to complete the taking of the place. It "Is also re -ported
that more than 1,000 Russian man-o'-wars-men were made prisoners as well as, many soldiers in the
town. ' ':;;: ,: .. " , .. Vr':" ;. .
Owing to the difficulty of getting news from the seat of. war because of Jhe strict censorship, only
fragments find their way to outside world points, '
Another, dispatch received late this afternoon states that bombardment is still going on at Port Arthur
and that the Russians, despite the loss of their vessels yesterday,' are making a desperate stand to hojd the
town against the almost victorious enemy.
. The report emanating from Tien Tsin that the northern Islands of Japan are being bombarded by a
Russian fleet from Vladivostok is wholly discredited. The report that Hakodite was bombarded is found
to be untrue as the few war ships of Russia outside the harbor of Vladivostok, which is ICe bound, are re
ported to be hurrying to the relief of Port Arthur, and Russia has all she can do on the defensive, to allow'
her to divide forces and attack Japanese ports. '

Tuscaloosa, Ala., Feb. 12. The dam
age to Russian warships by the torpedo
attack is probably more serious than re
ported. The Cxarevltch, from official
reports, was bilged In the steering en
gine and after - compartments. This
doubtless flooded sections 14, 16 and 16.
This vessel Is of French construction
and her form In this region is fine, so
that any amount of water that rushed
in first . was probably not large, thus
enabling the beaching of the vessel.
From my observation of water-tight
bulkheads, I think the flooding grad
ually extended to compartments forward
of the damaged ones or so far as the
boiler room. From my experience with
wrecking, I do not believe conditions
such as this could be repaired outside
of a drydock and even with good, facil
ities for repairs I estimate that the
ship cannot b? put In service Inside Of
The Retsvian was struck, abreast of
the engine room' arid the blow probably
destroyed- the outer and ' Inner bottom
and dislocated the outer wing bulkhead
and probably sprung v the , Inner wing
bulkhead unless coal protection muffled

of the ship and the fart that she' was
able to be beached would Indicate that

that the patient's condition Is critical.
Washington, Feb. 12. Although the
statement was made that Senator Hanna
passed a fair night his condition la ad
mitted to be serious and the patient is
now believed to be In a crisis state.
At 10 o'clock this 'morning the physi
cians published the following bulletin:
compartments were flooded unletts the
pumps were efficiently worked which
seems unlikely. Repairs to this ship
would also require docking and with
good facilities, for two months at least.
The Palloda was struck ahto amid
ships, and I cannot help but belteve that
she sank at once, or If beached filled fore
and aft shortly afterward. Only ef
ficient wrecking appliances could raise
this vessel within several weeks, when
It would probably require four months
or longer to complete her repairs with
excellent drydock facilities at hand.
If the beach where the vessels are ly
ing is at all exposed to the sea or to
the fire of ships outside, the wrecking
work will be made difficult. If a gale
should come there would be danger of
further Injuries. We may then con
clude that these three vessels are lost
so far as the first campaign is con
The Cxarovltch and Retslvan were
among the best battleships afloat and
their loss turns the balance of naval
strength to the aide of Japan. From
the standpoint of Japan this IS most
fortunate, probably guaranteeing con
trol of the sea which is vital to Japan.
The moral effect will be profoundly felt
not ordy In effect upon the attitude of
the world but upon the esprit of person
nel of the navies. The Importance of
torpedoes and torpedo vessels Is fully
confirmed by this Port Arthur engage
ment. But their Importance Is liable
now to be overestimated. Certain it Is
that the attack was wholly unexpected
and under usual conditions of precau
tion; such Success, would be practically
impossible. , Furthermore, the fact that
the vessels were able to be beached,
with smalt .loss of life shows that the
effect of , torpedo explosions have been,
materially reduced by the- recent meth

JAPAN IN THE WAR
Special Interview Given to the Meant
Papers by Kajor-Oeneral Joe Wheeler,
and Printed Simultaneously la Tha
Journal by Special Arrang ement.
New York, Feb. 12. With the exist
ence of political conditions, some times
often quite as potential as those which
are purely military, it would be a very
uncertain guess to predict as to thu
duration of the Russian-Japanese war;
Possibilities might be said almost to
range from one extreme view to the
other. The Japanese possess an advan
tage which gives that nation an oppor
tunity to become one of the powers of
the world. ' Its proximity to the theatre
of war and Its water line of communi
cation should enable the mikado to
carry . on a victorious campaign to a
speedy, successful and glorious issue.
Prompt concentration of the mili
tary and naval forces of Japan makes
it possible not only to defeat the Rus
sians, but to capture their stronghotdi,
and a great part of the Russian army
Is now .upon or In the vicinity of the
coast of the Pacific.
Water communication la an immense
advantage, . and Japan Is prepared to
use It to the fullest . extent Japan,
with 600.000 officers and men available
for , military service, can front : the
Russian forces now in Manchuria and
vicinity, and what Is as important, the
plucky aggressors can' keep their army

Republican State Central (:ommittee Fixes the
Date and Arranges the Apportionment -Recommends
Holding Primaries April 2.
The Republican state convention will
meet in Portland Thursday, April 14,
at 11 i. m. This was decided this
morning by the Republican state cen
tral committee at its first meeting since
the last campaign. The convention will
consist , of 361 delegates, the basis of
representation being one delegate for
each ISO votes ot' fraction thereof In
excess of 100 votes cast for Judge Bean
of the supreme court at the last state
election, with one delegate at large for
each county. Multnomah county will
have 71 delegates, or nearly one-fifth of
the entire number. A resolution was
adopted by the committee recommending
that the Republican primaries be held
throughout the state April I and the
county conventions April 7. .
The committee assembled In the Ham
ilton building at 10:30 o'clock this morn
ing and was called to order by the
chairman, Frank C. Baker. The call of
the roll by the secretary, Harrison Allen,
of Clatsop county, showed that all the
members were present, either in person
or by proxy, except those from Crook,
Curry, Lane, Lincoln. Morrow. Polk.
Tillamook. Umatilla, Wheeler and Yam
hill counties. Everything had been
carefully programmed beforehand and
the proceedings were without Incident
of importance, although one or two
members who had not been taken Into
the confidence of the machine, leaders
offered suggestions of their own, which
were promptly squelched. ,
A committee consisting of W. T.
Soholfleld of Clatsop, I. W. Hope of Mal
heur and Judge C, H. Carey, who held a
proxy from Lnlon county, was appoint
ed to fix the basis of representation In
the state convention and to determine
the apportionment of delegates. A mo
tion by one of the uninitiated that the
committee be Instructed to make the
basis of representation one delegate for
each 200 votes or major fraction thereof
cast for Judge Bean two years ago. met
with prompt opposition. J uage Carey
moved as an amendment that the basis
be one delegate for each 150 votes or
fraction thereof In excess Of 100 votes.
This Intimation of the views of the
leaders sufficed to settle the questioii
Maraters of Douglas wanted to have
the vote for governor as the basis of
apportionment, but he failed to, receive
sufficient support to carry his point .
"I uon t believe," said . Frank Mays,
