Manchurian merchants on market day in Dalny



Date Created


On May 26th the Japanese Second Army, which had been landed at Petsewo Bay, attacked the first line of Russian defense at Nanshan, eighteen miles north of Port Arthur, and gave an inkling of their mettle by taking the position on a frontal attack. The four other successive lines of defense, running parallel to each other across the peninsula of Liaotang, were also captured in quick succession, as the Japanese were eager to take Dalny, which they needed as a safe port for landing their reserves, their siege guns and the ammunition and other supplies for the army. The fiercest fight in these three bloody days took place at the double height, Kenshan and Wuteugshan, which Stoessel vainly re-aftacked for three days, losing three times as many men as were lost in his defense of the position. On May 29th Dalny was occupied, and became the base of the besieging army. Manchurian merchants flocked here in great numbers and did a thriving business.
