M yn that an intermittent for prevailed in the

The Russian ships were first sighted at 0

the squadron retired. This squadron, it Is be-

cording to information received, twenty-one

Nothing definite Js known, however, says the
correppondent, and he authorities merely re

has now been discovered, the correspondent con

the coast of the island of Luzon on May 22, and
that on the following day thsy cruised about
jiorth of Luzon and transferred large Quantities

He went through the Bashee Btralts and
steamed in a northeasterly direction. On the

FEARS RISE IN RUSSIA.
Emperor Greatly Distressed by Re
ports of Losses.
Ft. Petersburg. May 29. 2:18 a. ro.— ln this
ttnomentous hour the Emperor, the Admiralty
.end the Russian public are -waiting breathlessly
tor the Japanese to furnish authentic news
of the fate of Vlce-Admlral Rojestvensky and
Us fleet. In which the hopes of the Russians are
centred. The official disposition Is to con
•tru« Toklo's ctlsnc« favorably, but at the same
time the strategic reason for such silence is
.recognized. The public, after the premature
Jubilation of Saturday night, Is Inclined to
reverse Its attitude and to become pessimistic
The report sent to "Washington by the Ameri
can consul at Nagasaki of the sinking of five
RusF'.an warships, Including a battleship and
repair ship, was accepted as the most definite
and most authentic piece of news received tip
to midnight, and produced a bad Impression,
The fear •was expressed that the battleship sunk
might have been Rojestvensky's fjagrhlp, the
Kniae Fouvaroff. on which the Japanese would
' undoubtedly concentrate their fire.
The sinking of the repair ship Kamtohatka,
■which was filled with the most modern ma
chinery, might, it was thought, prove later to be
a more severs loss than that of a warship, but
at the Admiralty, where crowds congregated
yesterday (Sunday) afternoon and evening, the
opinion waa expressed that If Rojestvensky had
'cleared the gateway to the Sea of Japan with
no greater loss than that reported by the Amer
ican consul, the passage had not been dearly
; purchased, especially If later reports should
prove that the Japanese losses were anything
Mke equaj proportions.
Probably no one In Russia displayed cuch in
tense anxiety as the Emperor. Early yesterday
] morning he summoned Grand Duke Alexis, high
: admiral; Admiral Avellan. head of the Russian
', Admiralty, and Admiral Wireniu«, chief of the
; General staff of the navy, to Tearskoe Belo and
i remained closeted with them up to a late hour
: last night, impatiently awaiting information
!*nij poring over charts.
The only news received by his majesty from
HuESian source* were dispatches from Russian
.agents and- consuls at Chinese ports, which
could give nothing except current rumors. The
: only time the Emperor left the members of his
; Cabinet was to attend service In the chapel of
f the Alexandra Palace, where the chaplain prayed
} for Rojestvensky"s success.
The Emperor wa« greatly distressed when the
j "Washington fllspatch containing the Information
j r-r.t by the consul at Nagasaki arrived,
Newspaper dispatches naturally created the
| vldeFt speculation. Some of the officers of the
y.dn.lraHy who on Saturday were inclined to

hampering the warships unnecessarily, or that
it was a division of little fighting value dis
patched to confuse Togo and to throw him off
the scent, thought yesterday that it was possible
Rojestvensky might after all have divided his
fleet, and that the Japanese were awaiting the
arrival of the second Russian division before
making a general announcement.
The majority of the naval authorities how
ever, continue to believe that Rojestvensky could
not risk a division of his fighting ships. Those
of an optimUstio turn hope that Rojestvensky
did throw Togo off the trail and that they en
countered only torpedo boats in the Straits of
Corea. This opinion is not generaMy shared, and
most of them tMnk that Togo's pcouts were able
to keep in touch with the fighting division and
that the Japanese fleet lay In wait for Rojest
vensky in the narrow waters where a battle is
reported to have taken place.
Nevertheless, practicaJly nobody believes that
Toco offered open battle, the consensus of
opinion being that the Japanese, favored by a
Bt&ge of the moon, which was three-quarter fulL
waited and delivered a series of torpedo attacks
on Saturday night with such aid as hie heavy
ships could offer without running too much risk.
Mines may have played an important part and
may have been responsible for a large share of
the losses reported. At any rate the result is
not fully satisfactory to the naval authorities.
It is possible that a running fight at long
range took place on Sunday from which better
reflults are anticipated, as the naval authorities
generally do not believe that torpedo attacks
could be renewed on Sunday night In the open
The cruisers Gromobol and Rospla, of the
Vladivostok squadron, probably have sailed
south to afford Rojestvensky any assistance in
their power. If Rojestvensky got clear of the
etralt on Sunday night he should be close enough
to Vladivostok on Monday to communicate.
Xo light has been thrown on the identity of
the four cruisers reported from Tokio as pac
ing the Kurilcs Strait, and the only explanation
is that possibly another division of converted
cruisers has been' detached for the purpose of
confusing the Japanese.
At 1 o'clock this morning Admirals Avellan
and Wlrenius, on returning from Tsarskoe-Selo,

••Important action wan taken nt the meeting re

Asked if the action taken was likely to mean a
sympathetic strike, he said:
"1 do not believe a sympathetic strike will be
called without tho sanction of the executive coun

strike will be called, because I do not know. At
