Toklo, May 30. After two day of

Kinchou ha becomo a foot. The pre

day and Tuesday led to the final effort
on Wednesday to tnko tho height of
Kinchou, including tho fortress known

Russians Not Using Floating Alines.
St. Petersburg, May 30. A high nn
thorlty at the ndmiralty said to tho
correspondent of tho Associated Press
today: "It la false to assert that the
Russlnna uso floating mlnea. They are
not known in tho Russian naval
service, The Japanese used them con
stantly oft Pert Arthur."
Japanese Paid Dearly for Kinchou Vlc
tory 2,000 Rusalan Killed.
Toklo, May 31. Tho Jnpancro casu
alties nt Nan Shan aro now estimated
at 3,600. Tho number of Russian guns
captured exceed 70.
Whllo Japan paid heavily for her
victory sho scorod a sweeping and val
uable victroy over tho Russian, in cap
turing 57 guns, clearing the way to
Port Arthur and inflicting losses on the
Russians, which, in tho end, aro ex
pected to total 2,000 men.
It is doubtful if tho Russians wilt
stand again north of Port Arthur.
They retired from the Held beaten, nnd
thoy failed to rally at Nan Quan Ling,
where it wa anticipated a second stand
would bo made.
Tho deierato onslaughts of tho Jap
anese on the height of Nan Shan were
telling, for the Russians loft 300 dead
in the trenches thcro. A complete
search of tho field is expected to show
a greater number of dead.
Nan Quan Ling wa occupied yester
day morning by a forco of infantry, ar
tillery mid engineers under tho com
mand of General Nakamura. Tho
main Japanese forco spent Friday night
billeted in the village around Nan
Phan. Tho soldiers wero greatly fa
tigued as a result of the constant fight
ing, but thoy entered with much spirit
upon the new operations.
A forco fo Russians held San Chi LI
Pu station, which la northwest of Dal
ny, but tho Japanese drovo thorn out.
Tho Russians abandoned and burned
the station and retreated In tho direc
tion of Port Arthur.
Tho estimate of tho Russians engag
ed in tho defense of Kinchou, Nan Shan
hill and tho south shore of Tallenwan
hay vary, but it is evident that tho
Russians drew for men from the force at
Port Arthur and offered nil the resist
ance possible. It la understood here
that Lieutenant General Stoessel, com
mander of the military forces at Port
Arthur, was in personal command of
tho recent operations.
MASKINQ REAL FORCE.
RuIan Now See Object ot Movements
ot Japanese Troop.
St. Petersburg, May 31. Tho nows
contained in tho following dispatch to
tho emperor from General Kuropatkln,
is all that was officially given out to
night: "On May25 a Japanese force con
sisting of a battalion of infantry and a
squadron of cavalry advanced on the
main road to Liao Yang, but was soon
compelled to retire toward Tkhouine
nez. "A second Japanese detachment, con
sisting of a battalion of Infantry, at tho
village of Dapu, in tho At valley, fired
heavily on our Coisacks from 10 In the
morning until 4 in tho afternoon, bnt
tho Japance infantry failed in an at
tempt to turn tho Cossacks' light flank
and intercept their retreat."
While the dispatch I brief and bald,
it I considered extremely significant.
Tho fact that the Japaneso com
menced to advance along tho main Liao
Yang road immediately they had forced
the neck of tho Liao Tung peninsula
and cut off Major General Fock from
any co-operation with the Russians in
the north shows a thorough understand
ing between the Japanese commanders.
Tho authorities here believe tho ad
vanco from Feng Wang Cheng has only
been suspended, lending the elimina
tion of Fock's force, and they expect
that tho advance upon Liao Yang will
now be pushed In earnest.
It la evident that the continual shift
ing ot nnd skirmishing by the advanced
posts of the Japaneso around Feng
Wang Cheng have been mersly success
ful In masking tho real form, consist
ing of the third army, which la mov
ing north from Takushan. It is ex
pected that this forco will bo hurled
upon Liao Yang, while tho Southern
Japanese forco is busy wtlh Port Ar
thur. Tho fact that there ia almost a com.
pleto suspension of press messages
from Russian correspondents at tho
front i taken to indicate that import
ant moveents are pending.
Russian Mutt Seek Fort.
St. Petersburg, May 31. There la
no attempt hero to disguiso tho fact
that the successful forcing of the neck
ot Kwnn Tung peninsula proper puts a
practical end to resistance to tho enemy
until ho reaches Hie actual fortifications
around Port Arthur. Although thero
nro many strong positions in the more
than 25 miles before tho perimeter ot
tho fortress la reached, the authorities
admit that tho Russiana can offer llttlo
resistance, nnd must now retire within
tho fortress and proparo for tho final
