Mini battleship llalHiisf nun Sunk.
The Japan Advertiser snys: Par-
ticuhus of the scene of tlic disaster
ol the 1 lntsti.se Have been received.
On Mny 15th, when the llntsnsc
was cruising at 10:50 a. m., ten
nautical miles off Port Arthur, she
accidently touched a mechanical
mine on her port side anil began to
list. Vice-Captain Arimori at once
ordered his men to repair the
hole and try to prevent leakage.
This work was soon completed, and
the fact was quickly reported to
Captain Nakao and Rear-Admiral
Nashiwn. The IIntsu.se was im
mediately taken in tow by a war
vessel. Owing to the rough seas
prevailing at the time, the ship was
almost unmanageable, ami the tow
ropes finally snapped. The captain
and the Vice-Captain went below
with the object of ascertaining the
exact nature of the damage. While
they were engaged in this task at
12:30 p. 111., the battleship touched
a second mechanical mine on her
port-side, The Vice-Captain wns
killed outright. The noise of the
explosion wns deafening in the ex
treme. Dense volumes of black
smoke rose high in the air, aud
flames raged furiously. The scene
that followed was indcctibable.
In another minute and ten seconds
the big battleship went to the bot
tom. One hour and forty minutes
had elapsed since she touched the
first mine and the time she .sank.
Several Japanese war-vessels which
were ii the vicinity at the time
of the disaster quickly went to the
assistance of t,he crew and suc
ceeded in rescuing over three hun
dred men. Rear- Admiral Nnshiwn
wns rescued nnd tnken 011 the war
ship Tatsuda. The Captain and
all the members of the crew worked
well when the ship was going
down- Sub-Lieutenant Innaka
did -especially good service. On
learning the disastrous fate of the
vessel he rushed- into the room
where the photographs of their
majesties were kept and removed
them nlong with the important
documents aboard, to' safer places.
He was afterwards working just
above the powder magazine when
the mine which sunk the ship ex
ploded and killed him. When the
Hatsuse met with disaster, sixteen
Russian torpedo-destroyers rushed
out of the harbor and went towards
the Japanese war-vessels. Their
object was probably to impede the
salvage work and to attack . the
Japanese war-vessels by taking
advantage of the opportunity. The
Tntsuta on seeing the approach of
the enemy's craft turned around
and dashed lor them. The latter
retreated towards the harbor mouth.
The Tatsuta tried to pursue
them at high speedut ns it wns
fenred thnt she might be exposed
to cross fire from the enemy's
batteries nnd nlso to the danger of
mechanical mines, Renr-Adrairal
Nnshiwn ordered her to give up the
attempt. She accordingly rejoined

I Berlin, June 14. A letter from
St. Petersburg .says that tiie Anicri
can Ambassndor, Mr. 'R. S. Mc-
Cormick and his wife have any
thing but a pleasant time of it in
that city, hnving been completely
ostracized by Russian society.
The reason for this is easily under
stood when it it remembered that
everybody in Russia is under the
impression that the sympathies of
the United States are with Japan in
the present war.
For weeks the official residence,
of. the Ambassador in St. Peters
burg has been deserted by every
one but the members of the lega
tion and an occasional messenger '
from the Czar, who does not want
to offend the minister of a power-

Among Americans, therefore, it
is well known that Mr. McCormick
and his wife are heartily tired of
the Russian metropolis. It is even
said that Mr. McCormick has ap
plied to President Roosevelt, asking
to be relieved from his post, ns his
wife is suffering keenly under the
slights of all members of Russian
society, as well as by members of
the Legation of France.
The impression here is however,
that the Czar would like to have
Mr. McCormick remain in St.
Petersburg rather than have a new
man subjected to the same humilia
tions before he had time to make
friends with everybody.
Personally the American Minister
is quite popular, and his entertain
ments before the war were a great
success, showing that his present
isolated position is only a result of
Russian patriotism aud not of any
ill will toward him personally.

Mr. Ashley, who recently arrived
from the mainland to establish a
local station of the Federal weather
bureau has started in on the import
ant work he has before him. The
local plan does not contemplate
daily weather forecasts. The
weather mdn will devote himself
entirely to crop reports and a gen-,
eral review of the weather condi
tions as secured from regular corres-'
pondeuts throughout the Territory.
Kach week a crop bulletin will
be issued. This will give a gen
eral report of the weather prevail
ing on the various islands of the
group and the condition of crops,
fiach month a more detailed report
will be issued which will give de
tailed statistics of temperature,
rainfall aud other valuable data.
One of the most important duties
of Mr. Ashley's preliminary work
is in securing competent and will
ing correspondents. The Weather
Bureau has of necessity to depend
largely on voluntary assistance
rendered in various districts and
the success of its operations will be
effected to some extent by the in
terest taken by individuals capable
of giving proper attention to
Mr. Ashley does not contemplate
any difficulty in obtaining assist
ance as the statistics secured are of
great value and the system of crop
reports can be made of great bene
fit to all those interested in agri

quickly ran into a very bad diarr

accompanied with severe pain and

for my trouble, but it became so
regular a .summer affliction that in
my search for relief, I became ae-
lquainted with Chamberlain's Colic,
