Muscovites Get Licked and Lose 2,000 Men.

Incompetence in all Departments Is Everywhere Evident in the

Russian Military Organization.

New York, Feb. 22. – Advices from St. Petersburg are positive that the Russian advance guard on the Yalu River have been driven back and that at a loss of more than 2000 lives to the Russians. The defeat is charged to defective organization of the Russian forces. It seems that the transport of troops to the front was figured upon at a rate of 7000 a day, while the utmost has fallen to 3000. The commisary department has proven utterly inadequate to meet anything like the demand, and while a blanket and a handful of rice is housekeeping and living for a Japanese trooper, Russian soldiery use the heaviest of feeders, require an abundance of clothing, and their accoutrements are a load to an ordinary man under favorable circumstances.

with a terrible shriek of pain,

coughed up the shirt and flagged the train.
