WASHINGTON, May 29. Con
sul Saito, Honolulu: Following are
the reports so far received from
Admiral Togo. The first report,
received on the morning of May
27, is in this form:
The Russian squadron is in
sight. Our combined squad
rons have started for the at
tack. The weather is fine to
day but with heavy seas.
The second report was received
on tho night of May 2.1. It was as
The combined squadron at
tacked the Russian squadron
today near OkinoBhima south-"
east of the island of Tsushima
and defeated it, sinking at
. least four ships and inflicting
heavy damage upon 'others.
The damage to our ships is
insignificant. Our destroyers
and torpedo flotillas delivered
tho attack after sunset.
Tho third report came in this
form, on Monday, May 29:
Tho main for.co of our com
bined squadron has continued
the pursuit sinco tho 27th.
Near the Liancourt rocks,
northoast of Okinoshima, a
squadron consisting of the
Nicholas I. battleship, Orel,
battleship, Senyavin, coast
battleship, Apraksin cojist
battleship, and Izumrud pro
tected cruiser, fled while the
remaining four vessels sur
rendered. No damage to our
ships. According to tho state
ments of prisoners the vessels
sunk in tho engagement of
May 27, were the Borodino
battleship' Alexander III.
battleship, Jemtchug protect
ed cruiser, and three other
ships.'' Rear Admiral Nebo
gotoff and about 2000 other
Russians were taken prisoners.
Following are tho damages suf
fered by tho enemy in addition to
those given above since tho com
mencement of tho battle as re
ported by commanders not under
tho immediate command of Togo
and by observation stations:
Sunk: Admiral Nakhimoff
coast battleship, Dmitri Don
skoi armored cruiser, Sviot
lana protected cruisor, Ad
miral Oushakoff coast battle
ship. The Kamchatka repair
ship, Irutsush rating unknown
and threo destroyers were
captured. The Vladimir Mo
, nomakh foundorcd after cap
ture. One special Borvico Bhip
and ono destroyer. Disposi
tion of two last not given in
consular dispatch. Tho Rus
sian losses definitely known
so far may bo classified as fol
lows: Two battleships, one
coast defenso ship, five cruisers
two special ships and threo
destroyers sunk. Two battle
ships, two coast defence ships,
one special service ship and
one Destroyer captured.
It is not yet clear whether three
vessels, as stated by prisoners to
nave Deen sunK are included or
not in in tho above list. There
are more than 1000 prisoners be
sides 2000 taken by tho main force
of the combined squadron. The
naval engagement is still in pro
gress so it will take sometime be
fore the final results can be known.
TOKIO, May 30.- Beyond the
results already reported, little iB
known of the details of Togo's
stunning victory. Admiral Ro-
jestvensky's fleet reached Quelpart
island Saturday morning and
headed toward Tsushima, where
the Japanese have a naval station.
The number of his vessels is not
clear. The disposition of the Ja
panese fleet was ideal, the inner
line consisting of battleships under
Togo and .Kimamura, and the
outer line of cruisers under Katao
ka. The light squadron first at
tacked Rojestvensky, the order of
attack and the circumstances not
yet being known. On Saturday
night a series of despeate and suc
cessful torpedo attacks occurred.
The mam battle was resumed on
Sunday morning, Togo pressing
the Russians towards the coast of
Korea. The fate of Rojestvensky
is doubtful. The" crippled Russian
ships have probably reached Vladi
vostok. Complete details of the
victory will probably be unknown
before the end of the week. The
capital is having a great celebra
tion of the victory, the. streets
being filled with joyous, cheering
SHANGHAI, May 30. The
Russian transports off Woosung
have hauled down their flags.
ST. PETERSBURG, May 30.
There is no direct news from the
defeated fleet. Tho disaster is a
terrible blow to the government.
The Czar is prostrated. When the
news was given to him ho broke
down and wept. Touching scenes
occurred at the admiralty whero
women and children gathered to
inquire about the missing. The
government has forbidden the pub
lication of foreign dispatches until
they have been verified. The
futility of further struggle on the
land is recognized. The Liberals
are rejoicing over the defeat and
believo it will mean peace and a
BERLIN, May 30. Tho fullest
recognition of Togo's achivement is
granted hero. It is considered ono
of the greatest events in history.
Astonishment is expressed at the
poor showing of tho Russians.
PARIS, May 30. The Russian
disaster is deplored and Rojestven-.
sky's heroism eulogised. It is con
sidered time for intervention. Tho
magnitude of the Russian dofeat
has stunned France,
WASHINGTON, May 30. The
President and Minister Takahira
had a conference tonight. The
presumption is that it had some
connection with peace proposals.
ST. PETERSBURG, May 30.
lhe hospital ship Orel has arrived
at Vladivostok. The surrender by
Admiral Nebogatoff of two battle
ships is regarded as disgraceful.
WASHINGTON, May 30. Tho
State Department has been notified
from Toko that all tho Russian
battleships havo been sunk except
the Orel and Nikolai I. The defeat
of the Russian fleet was complete
.and overwhelming, and practically
nothing is lelt of the fleet.
Admiral Rojestvensky is among
the prisoners. His flagship was
sunk and the admiral waB rescued
and taken on board a Japanese
war vessel. Admirals Voelkersam
and iNebogaton are also prisoners
in the hands of the Japanese, their
vessels having been sunk or cap
TOKIO, May 30. It is believed
that four additional Russian ships
have been sunk. The Oldhamia

which -as captured by the Rus
sians on tho 19th, has been retaken
and brought to Sasebo. The captain
LONDON, May 30. Hundreds
of wounded Russians are coming
ashore along the Korean and
Japanese coasts, clinging to the
wreckage of their sunken war ves
sels. As the Russian ships went
down under Japanese fire the
cews and officers clung to what
ever bits of wreckage remained
afloat and many of them are still
at sea. It will be some time before
the full loss of life is known. Tho
wounded Russians are being cared
for .by the inhabitants along the
shores where they land.
ST. PETERSBURG, May 30.
The public is still ignorant of tho
extent of the Russian disaster in
the Far East. The most profound
gloom prevails in official circles as
a result of the disastrous reports
being continually received, and a
strict censorship has prevented in
formation being given to the
general public. Tho effect of final
announcement of the complete de
struction of tho Russian flleet is
anticipated with much anxiety.
TOKIO, May 81. Tho Japanese
destroyer Sayano captured on
Saturday the Russian destroyer
Buini carrying Rojestvensky and
another admiral, both wounded
and eighty other Russians includ
ing the staff of tho flagship Suva
roff. LONDON, May 31. The Rus

Tho capture of so many Russian
vessels is the most humiliating

This question was to-day put to
various members of tho Senato
and House of Representatives,
tho following results:
Senator Dowsett: "I would
most certainly support a movement
for a new County Act. 1 would do
all within my power to havo
county government in one form
or another given to tho people.
I consider that we are pledged to
county government. I havo
promised my support of local sell
government: wo havo nil pledged
ourselves to county government.
Outside of any personal feelings
I might havo in tho matter, I
would under all circumstances
fight for county government. In
event of the Supremo Court-knocking
out tho present County Act it
would become tho duty of tho Legis
lature, called in special session,
to enact a new county law."
Rop. Coclho: " Work a new Act
if this one is knocked out? Most
assuredly. Tho people want county
government and we must have it. I
think we would all insist on a
new Act if this ono is declared in
valid. Personally, I would do all
in my power for an Act to take
the nlaco of tho present law if
killed in the courts."
Rep. Kalawaia: Of course I
would in every way possible fight
for a now Act. Wo must have
county government., I will do my
best to work for a new bill if the
County Law is thrown out."
Rep. Mahelona: "We a 11 want
county government and you may
bo sure that if tho Supremo Court
finds the Act we havo passed to bo
invalid we will get to work, given
tho opportunity, on a new Act.
I'll do all I can and I don't think
there is any doubt about tho sen
timent of tho whole House on the
Rep. Lewis: "Hawaii needs
county law. The Island of Ha
waii needs county government
more than the rest of the Islands.
If wo get left on tho law now being
tested in the Supremo Court wo
will certainly give tho people an
Act to replace it. I'm for county
government all tho way through
and will always stand for it."
Chaplain Desha of tho House of
Representatives declared that ha,
would use all his influonco for a
now Act in case tho high court
declares tho present law invalid.
Tho paison is a great political
worker and bolieves in local self
government. Desha says both
tho Governor and Secretary pro
mised the voters county govern

want to cross bridges boforo ho
came to them. Ho did, not know
that tho legislature would havo
any right to consider county
government at a special session;
it all depended on tho call of the
thins wo will do will

work lor a now uountv Act, in
caso the one we passed is knocked
out and an extra session is called,
than go to work on appropriation

to tho County Act as a plank in
