effect that a Japancso squadron during the
night of February Sith tried to block tho

LONDON. Feb. 21.-A dispatch to tho

defeat at Port Arthur, according to which
the Japanese planned to sink some barges
n the strait leading from tho outer to the

the Rctvizan observed going down, In addition to the two destroyed, were also
laden with inflammables or whether they were warships.
Tho greatest praise is given to the commander of the Retvlzan, and the
splendid action of this American-built vessel places her name foremost on the
roll of the Russian navy.
Viceroy AlexlefT's dispatch was an amplification of a briefer telegram re
xrelved by the Emperor, but which was not given out.
Later it was said that Russia sustained no losses In the engagement.
It Is evident that Vice-Admlral Stark no longer commands the Russian Port
Arthur naval forces. Viceroy Alexleff mentioning a temporary commander of
the fleet, without giving any names.
Stories to the effect that tho Japanese designed an attempt nt landing in
Pigeon bay the same time that the engagement occurred are not mentioned in
the dispatches, but it Is believed these arc without foundation.
JAPAN CHECKMATES DIPLOMATIC RUSSIA.
PARIS, Feb. 24 Information received
here, probably through Russian channels,
but credited In official quarters, leads to
tho belief that Japan is now seeking to
securo tho execution of a treaty by tho
Emperor of Korea, giving Japan a pro
tectorate over Korea
It is tho understanding that the pros
poct of this treaty was tho main reason
for Russia's protest to the powers against
Japan's violating Korean neutrality, as
Russia dcBlres to reservo all rights
against a Japaneso protectorate over Ko
rea, on the ground that It will be of no
effect, bolng executed whilo Korea was
Tho Emperor of Korea Is said to bo so
completely under the domination of Ja
pan that he Is likely to approve of such
a treaty through Inability of resisting.
The situation from Russia's standpoint la
likened to a man's signing a check under
duress, or fear. It is tho expectation that
if this main purpose of the Russian pro
test Is accomplished there will not bo any
Joint or separato action by tho powers
relative to tho abstract principle of Ja
pan s having violated the law of nations.
"WASHINGTON, Feb. 24. Tho treaty
by which Japan guarantees the inde
pendence and integrity of Korea is re
garded here as one of the cleverest of
the many startling diplomatic moves
that have been made In connection with
the whole Eastern question. The effect
is to place Japan on a high moral plane
for it is understood here that this tufaty
is an announcement to the world That
If she prevails in her struggle with ftus
sla, involving military occupation of Ko
rea, Japan w'iil take no advantage of
that fact, but will maintain the inde

On the other hand, the Russian note
complaining of the violation of Korean
neutrality by Japan Is believed here to
be Intended' to pave the way for future
heavy reclamations, Indeed Involving

clal here pointed out that the attitude of
Japan toward Korea was very similar
to that of the United States to Cuba
when the former occupied the island
with its military force, only to withdraw
them and free Cuba after It had rid her
of Spanish control.
ST. PETERSBURG, Feb. 21. (1 p.
m.) The Russian Government believes
a deep impression has been made on in
ternational sympathies by tho note on
the subject of Japan's alleged violation
of tho law of nations, sent to the Rus
sian Embassadors Monday. The Gov
ernment lays special stress, on the Jap
anese action at Chemulpo, , where it is
pointed out, the Japanese', seized and
cut the communications In order to pre
vent M. Pavloff, the Russian Minister,
and the Russian warships, Varlag and
Korietz, even receiving news of the
rupture of diplomatic relations, and
then pounced upon the ships with a
greatly superior force.
Russia contends that this action
places Japan outside tho pale of civi
lized nations, and that It smacks so
much of barbarism that it must offend
the chivalrlc sense of civilized fair
play. In diplomatic circles tho presentation
of Russia's case is considered strong,
the opinion beVg, even In friendly
quarters, that Japan, in her haste to
cripple the Russian fleet at the outset,
committed a blunder by thus striking
a blow without warning, for which the
destruction of two ships will not com
pensate. it Js further pointed out that If Japan
had allowed M. Pavloff to return to a
Russian port on board a Russian war
ship, her magnanimity would have
been universally applauded.
Prince Lobanoff, the Governor of the
province of Tambov, has issued a warn
ing to the peasants of that province
against selling horses to dealers who
are trying to buy 3000 horses, ostensibly
for the British army, but really for the
ing with each other and the members of
the orthodox church in the display of
patriotism, while the peasants and
workmen are contributing as freely in
proportion to their means as the nobles

FEAR CABLE CONNECTION
WITH JAPAN !MAY BE LOST
WASHINGTON, Feb. 21. Inquiries
have been addressed to the Government
by representatives of tho Commercial
Cable company as to whether permission
could bo secured to land on the Island of

Japan. Tho request Is based on appre
hension that the existing Japaneso cables,
both of which run to Shanghai, crossing
the mouth of tho Yellow sea. may, from
tho exposed positions, bo cut by the Rus
sians, and Japan bo left completely Iso
lated from tho world.
At Guam tho projeoted cable, of course,
would bo connected with tho existing
American cablo cast and west.
Careful examination has been mado Into
1 the question as to whether or not assent
on tho part of tho United States to this
