A private telegram received here to-night says
that the Rust-lan tattleship Czarevitch has

A cipher telesrarn received here from Osaka,
Japan, confirms previous reports that the Jap
cnese main squadron is bound for a, southern
destination, "on afl turtivr campaign."

th". morning of August 12.
CZAREVITCH ALMOST A WRECK.
The battleship Czarevitch arrived at Tslng-
Chau on he night of August 11, steaming at the
rate St four knots an hour, and burning im
mense Quantities of coal to make even that rate
of .-peed. Bar rudder shaft was broken, one gun
was disabled, lifeboats had been lost, her masts
were badly bent, her funnels were riddled and
her bridge had been twleted out of position. The
projectile holes above ths waterline were cov
ered with makeshift stoppers of wood. The
dasaage to the rudder was caused by a torpedo;
the other Injuries were due to shells.
The same night one torpedo boat destroyer and
the cruiser Askold, with five of her crew dead
and twelve wounded, attempted to enter Tslng
«~:haa. but were kept oat by a Japanesa cruiser.
whereupon they proceeded to Woo-Sung.
, I>EC£S SLrIFPERY WITH BLOOD.
The efflcers of the Czarevitch are of the opin
ion that the Japanese vessels undoubtedly suf
fered severely in the fighting, as the pursuit of
the Cxarevlteli was maintained for a short time
.';cnly. Th* decks of the Russian battleship were
slippery with blood, and the men on board were
almoet deaf «s a result Of the concussions of
Bring.
The steamer Dagroar, arriving here to-night
from Tslng-Chau, had en board the harbor pilot
•who took the Czarevitch Into that port. He
«onflnr.9 the reports regarding the damage to
in* battleship, but Bay* that her engines are not
•badly injured. He expressed tho opinion that
the fighting days of the Czarevitch are over and
that she will probably be dismantled.
The Russian torpedo boat destroyers B«
poshtch-dnl and Bezschumi. both slightly dam
nged. were taking coal to-day from three Brit
ii»h steamers, whcue destination was Port Ar
thur, and which have been at Tsing-Chau for
son time,! Th« destroyer Bezstrashni. which
is also In the German harbor, has not been in
jured.
GERMAN' SHIPS CLEAR FOR ACTION.
"When coaling operations were completed the
Derassa cruisers rUrst Bismarck and Hansa
« leared for notion. It is believed that they will
;iot alloy the departure of the Russian ships.
Th« other German warships at Tsing-Chau to
night are the cruisers Geler and Ilertha. the
uunboats Fuehs end Tiger and two torpedo boat
destroyers. They control the harbor exit abso
lutely.
Rumor* current hero of fighting at Tsing
iChau are not believed, as the latest messages
from there make no mention of any action.
The German cruiser Thetis left Tslng-Chau
hastily to-day. An Italian warship also left the
port. The destinations of these two vessels are
unknTwn.
According to Chinese authorities, the Russians
had six and the Japanese, four warships at the
beginning at the fight off Shan-Tung Promon
tory. The Japanese, however, were scon rein

To Be Under Way.
. Uae.Yaag, Aug. -XatJve travellers re
. port that the Russians are still in possession
of 1-e.ifcihu about forty-Sve miles east of Liao-
Tar.sr. and that the Japanese forced from this
point by the strength of the Russian eastern
rosltlon seek other routes to flank Llao-Vang
or st the railway.
As after the first Jap ; . - advance to Hal-
Ping, the Japanow havo disappeared. The
■■Mssbjs scouted along their former front on
the ■ and Lang rivers, and now. after their
mm wlthfirawal. they are completely separated
from the enemy, who it eupx»oseJ now to be

formidable route, an« also north from Ting-
Ko#-.
Though no credible confirmation of the lat
. ter report can be had. so far as an observer
can j*ee both the Japanese and Russians have
-~U.n<-oned aggressive tactics in the east, and
the defences of Llao-Tang are narrowed to a
smaller and stronger circumference.

to Depart — Russian Plea.
Shanghai. Aug. 13.— Russian protected
crnlw Askold. flying an admiral's flag, with her
two stacks destroyed, a large hole in her hull
near the waterline and one below tho water
line, her upper works much battered and her
after barbette destroyed, arrived at Shanghai at
3 o'clock this afternoon, went into drydock and
began to make repairs. Fifteen of her crew
were killed and fifty wounded in the hattie off
Port Arthur August 10. Tho torpedo boat <5o-
Btroyer Grozovol is also at Shanghai.
The Taotai has notified both vessels that they
must leave port at the expiration of the twenty
four hour limit. The corr.miinder of the A.*kold
claims that his vessel is onsaaworthy, and It is
said to bo his intention to remain In port until
repairs are completed.
Loral shipping Is demoralized and underwrit
ers refuse to take any further ri.sk*.
There is a feeling h«re that Kaaeia Is infring
ing upon Chinesa neu'.ralit> by using Shanghai
as a port of refuge.
Great excitement was caused here yesterday
by the newa that four Russian warships had
anchored off the Saddle Inlands. In the after
noon the Russian torpedo boat destroyer Grozo
voi steamed up the river, having vainly at
tempted to make Tslng-Chau, being headed oft
by the Japanese.
The Grozovol Is very dirty and unpalnted. and
her crew are black with smoke and grime. They
had hard steaming* to escape the Japanese.
Later the Askold. with Rear Admiral Ouktom
sky. second In comand to the late Admiral "Witt
seert, on board, arrived at Woo-Sung.
Pilots report that three Russian cruisers are
off the Saddle Islands, awaiting British colliers
from Tslng-Chau. A Japanese squadron, con
listing of one ironclad, two large cruisers and
four destroyers. Is watching outside to inter

Washington, A up. 13. — Consul General Good
now has reported to the Ktate Department that
the Russian cruiser Aekold arrived at Shanghai
to-day, seriously damaged, and wanted to dock.
The Taotai has written to the Russian Consul
General, Mr. Goodnow says, thai the cruiser and
torpedo boat must not remain more than
twenty-four hour*. The Russian Consul Gen
eral raises the point that they are entitled to re
main a reasonable time to make repairs.
London. Aug. — A dispatch from Shanghai
to "The Times" says the reason given for the
entrance of the Russian torpedo boat destroyer
Grozovoi Into that port js that it is necessary
to repair her Machinery* The vessel, the dis
patch adds shows no signs of recent lighting,
except that her forward rails are damaged. Her ;
hull, guns and torpedo tubes are uninjured.
The officers of the Grozovoi report that th- j
Russian warships, after a severe engagement, j
forced their way through the Japanese fleet and
escaped In several direction?.

THE NOVIK FORCED TO GO.
Germany to Enforce Neutrality in j
Cases of Other Vessels.
Berlin, Aug. 13.— The Russian protected ctuJs- I
er Novlk left Tsing-Chau within th»? twenty- |
four hour limit, according to an official dispatch I
to the Navy Department from the Governor of :
Kiao-Chau. Several other Russian vessels are I
still in the harbor Jr. a disabled condition.
The German government is not willing: that
the names of these ships and the details of the.
damages should be published on official author
ity, because such Intelligence might be consid
ered inconsistent with neutrality and affording
Japan valuable Information. The Instructions
pent to TsJng-Chau permit the disabled Russian
vessels to repair sufficiently to proceed to an
other port, but the repairs must be strictly lim
ited to making them seaworthy and not. to in- I
i reading their fighting capacity.

JAPAN TO ISSUE NOTE.
Intimation That Seizure Will Be
Upheld — Britain Anxious.
London, Aug. 13.— The Japanese Legation this
afternoon informed The Associated Press that
the Tokio government Will sond «. circular note
to tho powefS on the subject of the seizure of
tho Russian torpodo boat destroyer Ryeshltelni,
but beyond intimating that the explanation will
be on lines justifying t ho action tha officials
were unable to say anything additional until
better advised us to the result of tht: official In
quiry.
The cutting out of the Ryeshitelnl by the Jap
anese torpedo bout destroyers at Che-Foo has
eclipsed for the moment in the public mind the
steamer Kr.lght Commander Incident. Both.
hOWevef, are receiving the earnest attention <>f
the cabinet. Baron Hayai-hi, the Japanese Mm
Isti r to Great Britain, has not yet mado an of
ficial explanation to the British government of
tho Che-Foo in -i 1 at.
AIl Che Information received at th* legation.
-which, however, it is said, is not official — tends
-> establish the fact that the Japanese torpedo
• niered Che-Foo for the purpose
f ascertaining if the Kyeshttneln! whs really
dismantled and unable to take part in future
operations, that the Japanese boat's crow was
attacked by the Russians, and that the Japa-
nese replied In self-defence, and that, seeing the
Ryesliitelni was able to continue military op
erations, the waa towed out to sea.
This version does not agree with the original
report! received by the British Foreign Office,
in which the Japanese appear to have been the
ueKressors.
The British government. The
la ii. formed, has evinced Japan
should do nothing to cast h doubt on the neu
trality of China, and bai
that Japan will repair any errors committed by
subordinate nftirlals.
At the t'i'' ess Legation II was said that no

FRANCE NOT YET ACTING.
Protest from Russia Awaited
Japan Strongly Blamed.
Par;.*. Aug. 13.— The Foreign Office here has
not yet received any communication from Russia
on the subject of the Che-l^oo incident and has
jiot taken any action. T&ere hi no doubt, how
ever, that such a communication Ii expected.
and It will receive the Immediate attention of
the Foreign Minister, If. Drlratsf. who is In
Paris.
Pubttc opinion considers that tho attack on
the Ryeshltelnl was h serious breach <>t thu

THE SEIZURE AT CUE FOO.
United States Not Bound to En

Washington. Aug. 13.— Mr. Takahira, the Jap
ar.cse. Minister here, had v- conference with Sec
retary Hay to-day, discussing Questions grow
ing "ut of the war, and particularly the Che-
Foo Incident, Involving the cutting out of the
Russian torpedo boat destroyer Ryeshitelni.
The Minister has as yet had no formal report
from his government on this subject, and he
deems it necessary to have the details at hand
before expressing any opinion as to the viola
tion of neutrality rights in this seizure.
it is said at the State Department that by no
possibility can the department bo Invoked to
oblige China, Japan or Russia to execute faith
fully the terms of the GgTemcnts entered into
•with the powers at the beginning of tho war
regarding the protection of the neutrality
of China end the limitation of the Held
of war. Tho United states simply sug
gested to several powers that they ad
dress themselves to the governments of the
three countries named to secure certain objects,
and this suggestion was well received and'
acted upon, but there was nothing in the nature
of an obligation Incurred by the United States,
acting either independently or jointly with the
other neutral powers, to force China. Russia
or Japan to live up to the terms of the agree
ment.
It would be a matter of regret to this gov
ernment if there should be the slightest de
parture from the sound and politic arrangement
then reached, but it can do no more than to use

official statement from the Russian Foreign Of
fice:
The Russian Consul at Che-Foo reports that
on the night of August 11-12 two Japanese tor
pedo boats entered the port of Che-Foo and at
tacked our torpedo boat Ryesnltelnt, which on
the day before was dismantled by agreement
of the commander with the Chinese naval
authorities.
This fact was known to the Japanese. Our
torpedo boat was blown up by order of the com

towed out of the port by the Japanese.

JtUSSIA AND BRITAIN.
An Opening Left for Agreement on
Knight Commander Case.
London, Aug. 18. The Russian reply to the
British representations In the case of the British
steamer Knight Commander, while upholding
tho validity of the sinking: of the vessel, leaves
the way open for continued negotiations, which
tho Foreign Office here believes will lead to an
adjustment of the question. Great Britain Is
hopeful that the representations made by the
United States in the case of the Portland and
Asiatic Line steamer Arabia will have the effect
of proving to Russia that th« American and
British governments regard the sinking of the
Knight Commander and what constitutes con
traband through the ■•anw spectacles.
Th« Associated Press understands that Russia
has expressed her willingness not only to revise)
the regulations, provided they are accepted by
Great Britain as binding on her conduct In
future •ran, but to permit th«» question of prop
erty, otherwise the destruction of tho Knight
Commander, to be determined by the revised
regulations. To mmm extent the imr>ortance of
th« question 1* th"Ugtit to I" 1 diminished by th»
scattering of the Russian Port Arthur squadron.
Admiral Togo now being able. It Is believed, to
tend ft sufficient force to prevent the Vladi

Tho question of Indemnity for th* seizure and
detention of British vessels his not reached the
»tage of an agreement on the amount of tha
compensation. Russls has signified her will
ingness to grant nn adequate Indemnity to the
owncn of the neutral cargo of the Knight Com
mander. If what are considered exorbitant
amounts are claimed in these cases the Russian
government will tunes*, tni»t they be submitted
to the Ilaguo Arbitration Tribunal or to a

"MINUTE FROM BROADWAY/*
TURKEY GRANTS DEMANDS
Coatlnacd from Br»t pace-
more uncomfortsblo. In fact, tho general author
ization to open school.*, proclaimed to all Chris
tians In connection with the treaty that ended
th" Crimean War in Iss's, had been annulled by
arbitrary decree.
Then a curious th!n* happened. France, having
some debts to collect from Turkey, us a persuasive
seized the island of Mitylene. in the .X&ea Sea.
Turkey was as much astounded as a pickpocket
whom a policeman lias seized by the collar. Of
course, the money was disgorged on the spot. To
complete the settlement, however. France demand
ed that Turkey stop monkeying with Roman Cath
olic schools and return to the principles, pure and
pimple, of the former regulations. Turkey granted
this also. The Roman Catholic schools throughout
tlio land were restored to the enjoyment of all
their former privileges and recognitions and have
buttered no more. Other European governments
whose subjects had been harassed because they
had established schools In Turkey claimed the
right to tho immunity given France, and obtafued
the same ameliorations.
But when f.ir United States asked Turkey to
follow the same precedent and to restore American
schools to their old footing the request was re
fused. Assurances of distinguished consideration
from suave Turkish diplomatists flowed like water,
These formed, however, but a thin covering for the
fact that his majesty of Turkey preferred to make
a discrimination against the United States. A list
was then presented of several grievances which
the United States had against Turkey, Including
discriminations against American pork anti Ameri
can school*. Turkey honored our Minister with
further assurances of distinguished consideration,
and after some deliberation promised to set right
the most of the grievances. But of the complaint
of oppression of American schools no notice was
taken. Perhaps it bad been overlooked, since it
came at the bottom of a rather long list.
Meanwhile the American Minister at Constanti
nople was hampered by the ancient rule of eti
quette that compels a mere Minister to communi
cate with the sovereign through subordinate offi
cials unless th« sovereign invites bin to a per
sonal audience. Whenever the Minister expressed
a wlih for an audience of the Sultan be received
assurances of the highest consideration and a list
of good reasons why the Sultan could not spare
time to receive him. Th« thing became monoto
nous. For some years our State Department has
repeated proposals that Turkey agree to raise the
rank of its legation in Washington to that of em
bassy, and Turkey has objected, thinly disguising
Its* unwillingness to see America recognized by the
Turkish people as a "sreat power" and its repre
sentative at Constantinople clothed with the rank
of Ambassador and the privilege of access to the
Sultan at all reasonable times. dome months ago
tho American Minister at Constantinople made
new representations as to the unfair discrimina
tion* against American schools. At the same time
h.i urged once more the proposal for raising th*
legations of the two countries to the rank of em
bassies. Th* manner of the Sultan's answer made
nil Constantinople chuckle). Since the request of
the American was for ■ change that would give
him more direct relations with the central power of
Turkey, the riu'tau'u refusal was emphasized by
being sent through the least direct channel possible.
The Turkish Minister of Foreign Affairs told the
American Minister thttt the Grand Vizier had In
formed him that he hail the Sultan's orders to
declare that his majesty did not wish to raise the
rank of lbs legation, and thai since American
schools were not being molcsrcd the Sultan saw
no reason for allowing to them the formal recog
nition given to French and German and English
u.'hl other schools.
This intimation of the Sultan's will mljht b«
considered to settle tho question. But the Minis
ter of Foreign Aftalrs. out of consideration for
tftn feelings of the Minister of the United State*,
rvfralned, co tho I'ach.i confidentially remarked,
from attempting to translate tho actual language
In whl<-h the Orand Vlxler made Vr.own to him
his mighty master's decision. Th« Minister of tn«
United States kept his Keif-control sufficiently.
notwithstanding the crushing nature of this reve
l.itlon. tu ask for a written answer to hi* written
ftpvile This waa given to him. Ii declined
to consMer the proposal to raise tb« legation to
tha r;tiik of embassy, but on the question of
school* the document preserved careful silence.
The Turkish Intelligence evidently sees ihe school
rjur.nlr.n to b« of greater importance than the
embassy question, behind which it is hidden.
