City hall building at Dalny



Date Created


After the war between Japan and China, Russia prevented the victorious Japanese from reaping the full, well-earned benefit of their exertions. Russia refused to allow the Japanese to take Port Arthur and the peninsula of Liaotang, which were theirs by right of conquest. Why? Because Russia saw here an opportunity to gratify her desire for a port on the Pacific Ocean that is Frenche of ice all the year around, and managed to get a lease of the coveted district from the Chinese government. As soon as this lease was signed, the Russians came in swarms, making Port Arthur an impregnable fortress, the Gibraltar of the East, and creating at Dalny a port with all the most modern improvements. Within four years they erected a modern large city where only a miserable Manchurian fishermen's village had existed, with fine public buildings and a vast array of storehouses.
