Tho Russian gov ernment Is beginning to reality that its troops in thu Hold will hardly ho able to retain possession of Manchuria, and that even more reverses are in store fur General Kuroi ntkiu's army. It is learned from an absolutely de pendable source that Harbin Is being lortltled and placed in condition to withstand n stegu and that It Is goner- ally Inilloved in government circles that tho urmy will bo compelled to abandon Mukden and all positions to the south ward and retire to Harbin, there to await tho Japanese armies.

Nor Is that all. Kruustadt nnd other tlrst class fortresses are being de nuded of their heaviest guns, which aro bleng prepared for shipment to tho Muuchurluii border, there to be mount ed at Harbin. It is tho hope ot tho czar and lits advlseis that tills place may be mado Impregnable, and the Japatiesu can bo compiled to extend their lines over so much tenitory that they will exhaust themselves guarding their lines of communication.
