T TWENTY-ONE DIE IN NAVAL
BATTLE OFF GOTHLAND
Copenhagen. 6 cruisers and 20
torpedo boats were engaged in the
Thursday night naval battle off island
of Gothland in which German mine
layer Albatross was beached and de
stroyed. 21 dead. Capt Lowenherd
of the Albatross among them.
Dispatches from Petrograd today
reported that German cruiser was
badly damaged and forced ashore and
advices from Swedish points report
destruction of a German torpedo
boat It is believed here, however,
that these reports are erroneous and
that German mine layer sent ashore
on Gothland was "cruiser" mention
ed in Petrograd dispatches.
Reports from Gothland today indi
cate that a German squadron, at
tempting to cover debarkation of
German troops on Russian coast
south of Windau, was attacked by a
flotilla of Russian destroyers. Rus
sians closed in upon German torpedo
boats and inflicted heavy damage be
fore several fast German cruisers
dashed into action and forced the
Russians to retire northward.
The mine layer Albatross, unable
to escape because of her slow speed,
received concentrated fire of several
Russian warships. She was struck
25 times and was afire with her deck
covered with dead and wounded
when she beached at Hecreikan.
Swedish destroyer flotilla was on
scene of engagement. Reports from
Stockholm today said Russiah de
stroyers continued pursuit into Swe
dish waters and that protest would
undoubtedly be lodged with Russian
Expected engagement will be re
sumed. o o
