The general frankly avows that he relinquished his command atter th** recent attempt of the Russians to ‘dan!  Field Marshal Oyama, because, as he ,latins. General Kuropatkin refused to rend bim Help when victory was in Gen. Gripenberg’s hands    inst* ad  of ordering him to withdraw    Gript n  berg will personally report on the situation to Emporor Nicholas. It is too early to say what the result will be although it is evident that Kuropat-kin’s enenil *s are pushing their cam jtaign against him It is only fair to Kuropatkin to say that Ii is friend., i^aim that Kuropatkin’s side of the glory is that he only intended to rnak* a demonstration in force and that Gripenburg pressed the attack too far and beearn * too much involved.  In an interview General Gripen berg said' “I ani glad to give an a* - ! count of the battle of my army, the telegrams I have seen being far from the truth. Kuropatkin, of course, authorized the advance but he imposed the condition that it should not go beyond Heikoutai and Sandepas. From I  k  the first army corps before Heikoutai i I detached a brigade which occupied Heikoutai January 25. The Japanese cut in from the south and the brigade came in for a cross-fire but held on until I got up another brigade to cover its retreat. The Japanese were now concentrating on their left Dining the evening of January 25 I and my army were ordered tinder no circumstances to fall back from our positions. The next morning my whole front was en-#. saged.  “The battle of January 20 was continued until the evening. We did not surrender in inch of ground. My left flank, which was clearing the mad to Sandepas, being weak, I asked the com mander-in-chief, who had OO battalions available, for reinforcements. He declined to send any. apparently taking the Japanese demonstration at the center as being a general advance.  Nevertheless I decided to storm Hei-? koutai the next day.

At first I was afraid to ( omnium cate it to my victorious army but then' was nothing else to do. We retreated during the night of January 29 with t»ars in our eyes and bitterness in our hearts.

The real victory was won long after the greet crass was growing and the flowers were blooming upon the graves of the men who fell in this, the greatest civil war the world evei saw. It was a victory won in a battl»« waged by men aud women of the south, standing shoulder to shoulder with men and women of the north t peaceful struggle to quench tin fire* of sectional hat* and antagonism “It was at this time thai there - ani** out of the north a new leader not a leader of armed men- but a leader of unarmed women, a woman of supreme  priate that Miss WI I lard’s Btatue should stand here under this dome.
