to tho state, specifies that it Is to bo

From most closely Informed itunrtcrn
it Is learned that conservative estimate
ot Russian casualties exceed 160,000,
while 60,000 Russian Mem taken pris
oner nt tlui culmination of Marshal
Oynma's great llanklug strategy. Whllo
no figure are obtainable lieru on tho

believe that tliey were much less than
tho casualties suffered by thu enemy,
although, of course, no Japanese havo
been captured. Neither army linis

Whllo thu present distribution of

than that part of tho main Ixsly which

General Nogl Is still marching to tlui
