The Indianapolis News has re

its special correspondent at Che —
Foo, giving an account of his re
lease from Port Arthur and the con
ditions there. Fuller was rowed
across from Miao Tao islands by
two Chinamen. He was arrested
on landing, blindfolded and put in
prison. Fuller says:
“After spending five days in a
Russian prison I was released and
put aboard a Chinese junk and
sent here. Stories of starvation in
Port Arthur are untrue as supplies
are constantly arriving from Chi
nese ports. The Japanese blockade
is ineffective. The garrison con
