Vladivostok, (undated) A Rus
sian cortespondeiilof the Associated
Press, wlio witnessed the meeting
between the Russian mul the Jap
anese squadrons in the Gulf of
Korea, gives the following parti
culars: "It is posstMc now to recount
with some detail the meeting be
tween the Japanese squadron and
our squadron in the Gulf of Korea,
with regard to which the Japanese
have so far been decidedly quiet.
"I can contradict wholly the
statement that the meeting occurred'
in the rain, which enabled our
cruisers to escape the superior Jap
anese forces. It was a beautiful
sight and the Japanese might easily
have continued their pursuit, but
they were apparently disheartened
by the misscarriage of their plans.,
coupled with the fact that they
fired on their own torpedo boats,
though what damage they did to
themselves it was impossible for us
"The Japanese trap for our
cruisers was cleverly set. Vice Ad
miral Togo dispatched n squadron
fully three times the strength of the
Russian, with the intention of meet
ing them in the Straits of Korea, in
order to insure a decisive engage
ment. The Armstrong flotilla of
torpedo boats lay in wait at Takasi
(the northernmost point of Tan
Island) with the intention of dash
ing out, catching the Russian
cruisers between two fires and forc
ing them to halt and to Tight.
"It is understood that the plan
was to make a desperate torpedo
attack, losing the whole fleet if
necessary, in order to cripple one
cruiser and to make the remainder
wait so as to give the Japanese
fleet time to catch up. The plan
worked up to the point of meeting
the Russian squadron, which, when
it saw the superior force of Japanese
rapidly retreated to the northward.
The Japanese began a stern chase,
firing at intervals, but their shells
fell one and one-third miles short.
We made no attempt to reply.
"At this juncture the Japanese
torpedo boats shot out from Takasi
and for a short time it looked as
though vc had been badly trapped.
''The Japanese torpedo boats,
however, did not push the attack
with their accustomed dash. They
were in excellent position to cut us
off, but they were spread out too
much and never got within torpedo
"We slipped through their cor
don while they were attempting to
draw in for a combined attack.
Their fiuick-firing guns opened
without damage to the Russians in
the slightest, while the heavy guns
of the Russian cruisers sent two of
their torpedo boats to the pro
tection of their own squadron,
thereby helping us further.
"We had no torpedo boats with

nothing is certain on this point,
that the orders for the division will
be opened at five-day intervals.
Whether the warships are bound
at once to the Far K 1st in advance
of the other ships, may depend on
naval dcvelopement at the seat of
war, but there are attending cir
cumstances which make it seem
unlikely that the division will start
on its long journey until the other
ships are ready. It is understood
that the division will include the
armored cruiser Admiral Ntikhitn
off, the battleship Oslialia, the pro
tected cruiser Aurora and the bat
tleship Alexander in., and possibly
the battleship Navarin and the
transport Kamtchatka. Great stacks
of charts wetc nut on board the
Admiral Nakhimoff, the Osiialia
and the Aurora yesterday.
The general naval situation, with
the Port Arthur squadron ready for
sorties at will, and the Vladivostok
squadron embarrassing the Japa
nese transport plans, compelling
the constant presence of Vice Ad
miral Kainimura in the sea of Jap
an, is considered to have improved
very much. There is elation, every
where over the latest successful
cruise of the latter. The Admir
alty expresses astonishment at the
failure of the Japanese torpedo flo
tilla to drive home its atUck on
the Vladivostok squadron under the
favorable circumstances related in
the dispatches'received from Vladi
vostok yesterday. The Admiralty
thinks the Japanese missed a fine
opportunity through flinching at
the last moment. It is a matter of
general comment at the Admiralty
tuat notwithstanding the energy
and activity displayed by the Jap-
nese torpedo craft, not since the
attack at the opening of the war,
when the Russians claim they were
taken off their guard, have the
Japanese torpedo attacks sunk a
With thirty Japanese ships en
gaged in recent attacks without
counting that of June 23, no Rus
sian ship has been distroyed, in
dicating how difficult it is for tor
pedo boats to cope with battleships
or cruisers when the latter aie pre
pared. This is considered to be a
lesson of the war and vindicat
ing Russia's decision to continue
her naval program for the construc
tion of heavy ships.
Viceroy Alexieff has conferred a
long list of decorations on the sub

having been sent by the Admiral
on another mission.
"The Japanese mistook their own
retreating torpedo boats for Rus
sian boats coming to attack them,
and opened a deadly fusillade,
which lasted for three minutes.
"The Japanese torpedo boats
spouted rockets and worked their
signal lights desperately before the
fire of their squadron ceased. We
were unable to ascertain the dam
age which resulted, but it is hardly
possible that the Japanese boats
escaped the hail of Japanese shells.
"The reason why they did not
pursue us further is not known, ex
cept that the hulls and boilers of
the Japanese ships have greatly de
teriorated as a result of the service
on the sea. It is certain that they
were not nearly a match for the
Russians for speed in the earlier
part of the fight, though the squad-1
rou included the fastest cruisers in j
the Japanese fleet, with a speed, on i
paper, greatly superior to that of
