What is this?
Optical character recognition (OCR) is an automated process that converts a digital image containing numbers and letters into computer-readable numbers and letters. The search engine used on this web site searches OCR-generated text for the word or phrase you are looking for. Please note that OCR is not 100 percent accurate. If the original image is blurry, has extraneous marks, or contains ornate font styles or very small text, the OCR process will produce nonsense characters, extraneous spaces, and other errors, such as those you may see on this page. In addition, the OCR process cannot interpret images and may ignore them or render them as strings of nonsense characters. Despite these drawbacks, OCR remains a powerful tool for making newspaper pages accessible by searching.

The note was simple and direct and the Japanese general immediately named commissioners to oonfer with representatives of the Russian com mander. They met at noon Monday to arrange the conditions of surrender. The nature o f the’ terms agreed upon is not yet known, hut dlspatohes/ from Tokio indicate that they will be of the most magnanimous oharaoter. The emperor of Japan himself, through the ohief of staff, has given buplio his ex pression that “ General Stoessel has rendered commendable aervioo to his oonntry in the midst of diffloolties, ’ ' and that it toito wish \that military honors be shown him. ’ ’ A dispatch from Tokio quotes mili- taiy opinion as believing that the en tire garrison will be allowed to march out under arms and may be sent to Russia on parole. Late dlspatohes from Japan have shown that the gal lant defense of Stoessel and hla men has nowhere bee a given a finor appre ciation than in the land of hia foes, and It is more than likely that Japan w ill embrace the-opportunity to show her magnanimity and admiration of .the gallantry of Port Arthurs’ defend ers by allowing them all the honors which war permits a victorious army to bestow upon the vanquished.
