Description

A Japanese policeman on his bicycle, traveling his beat, two Chinese coolies carrying a wounded soldier to the hospital, Manchurian farmers and tradesmen peaceably going about in the pursuit of their business--such was the daily scene on the streets of Dalny during the siege of Port Arthur, entirely given up to the exclusive use of the Japanese Army and its helpers. Almost every house in Dalny was taken into the service of the Japanese, either as quarters for the men of the commissary department, or as a hospital, or as a sleeping place for the vast army of nurses, or for the officers on General Nogi's general staff. The wide streets of the city, well laid out and well kept, its splendid squares and long rows of wharves and warehouses were of infinite advantage to the Japanese. Would the Russians have done so much for Dalny if they could have looked into the future?
