) RUSSIANISING PORT ARTHUR. H.M. Commercial Agent in Russia, in a report to the Foreign Office, says that the Novi Kraj thus described Port Arthur on the occasion of its third birthday. Unsightly, dirty Chinese quarters have, as by a magician's wand, been either entirely re- fashioned or rebuilt in European guise. Barracks, fitted up as well as any in the capital, have replaced the former impani.' A church, small indeed, but of Russian style, two popular schools, two clubs, one military and one naval, a reading library, three print- ing establishments, a bookshop, and a larger theatre than either Haborovsk or Vladivostock, have all sprung up to help to Russianise the town. A regular newspaper organ, the Novi Ifrai (new country), enables the inhabitants to study the possibilities and needs of the Far East. The railway starting from Port Arthur into the heart of Manchuria is already awakening the population from its centuries of lethargy, while, since the occupation by Russia, an ice-free anchorage for her Pacific squadron has been transformed into a strong outpost in the Far East, with an improved dry dock, port works, depots, &c.
