Poultry for the Japanese officers' mess


Poultry for the Japanese officers' mess



Date Created


This scene is in Dalny, near the building in which General Nogi had his headquarters. This building was the goal to which many of the Manchurian peasants and peddlers wandered, carrying live chickens and ducks, for which there always was a great demand. In this building the details of the great plans for the capture of Port Arthur were worked out. Here worked the brain that regulated and governed every one of the thousands of Japanese arms and heads that planned and plotted, delved and slaved, fought and died for the purpose of tearing from the grasp of the Russian bear the Gibraltar of the East, which the Japanese had fairly won in their war with China in the year of 1898, and out of which Russia had cheated them. The Russo-Japanese war was the direct consequence of this high-handed proceeding of Russia, which Japan at once decided to undo at the earliest possible moment.
