MANY INSTAN<*F«s OF IT SHOWN
IN BATTLE OF SEA
Victoria, B. C., June 20.—Many tales
Of mutiny during the battle of the Sea
Sea of Japan on the part of the sea
men of the Russian ships are told,
with other incidents of the battle,
in Japanese newspapers received by
the steamer Athenian today. Two gam
crews of the Dimitri Donskoi, which
had been torpedoed at night, mutinied
when the presence of the enemy was
suspected and were only kept at their
spiritless tasks under threats of being
shot down. A petty officer of the
Donskoi said the attitude of many on
that vessel under fire was cowardly
in the extreme, and when the facts
in official records were known, many
prisoners now in Japan would not seek
to return to Russia at tue end of the
war. Survivors praised the work of
the Japanese torpedo craft, which
though the Russians were diligent in
the use of searchlights, daringly har
rassed the Russians and with cunning
tactics did effective work. The offi
cers were determined to achieve some
thing to earn the admiral's commenda
tion on this occasion or die. One in
stance recorded of the deeds of the
torpedo craft shows that one of the
torpedo vessels lost was disabled at
a distance of 400 yards front a Rus
sian battleship anti another torpedo
craft darted in and tooic off her crew
while she was in a sinking condition,
without sustaining loss from the Rus
The destroyer Sazenami won furth
er renown. It was she that forced the
Russian destroyer Byedovi at Ulleyong
and captured Rojestvensky and staff.
The Byedovi fought desperately, but
was finally compelled to surrender.
Commander Tsunezo has been given
the order of the Kite for his capture.
When captured Rojestvensky wore
no tunic. He was in his shirt with
a mangled arm swinging at his side
He is resting at the Sasebo hospital
near the captain and vice captain of
the Admiral Nashkimoff, who were
picked up on driftwood by fishermen
with their clothes shredded and their
faces burned with powder. Many of
the bodies are badly torn by gun
wounds, some terribly burned. It is
significant that the modest Japanese
casualties occurred on Togo's flagship,
the Mikasa, which had eight killed and
The fog which prevailed on May 27
in the straits of Tsushima induced
Rojestvensky to attempt the passage.
The battle was commenced with
shot from a 12-inch gttn from the
Nicholas. The Russians were in such
faulty formation that demoralization
soon followed the cannonading, wnich
begun as the Japanese surrounded
It was shown, according to advices
by the Athenian .that the Oslyabia
and Suvaroff were sunk by Japanese
guns . They owed their fate to the
heavy sea running at the time, the
Japanese having long practiced firiug
in heavy seas.
The battleship Orel, which surren
dered and was brought to Maizuru
dockyard, had 40 shot holes in her
hull. Blood and mangled flesh was
scattered on the decks and many
corpses were buried at sea.

Men Get Horses at Harlem Livery
Great Falls. June 15.—W. D. Dodge
appeared before Justice of the Peace
O. W. Vennum, bright and early Mon
day morning, says the Harlem News,
and swore out a warrant of arrest for
one Dan Taylor, who, it is alleged,
has disappeared with one of the sad
dle horses belonging to the livery sta
ble of which the above gentleman is
the owner and proprietor.
It seems that Tayolr and another
young fellow went to the livery barn
last Wednesday and hired the horse,
saying that they were going over to
the agency and would soon be back.
His companion was mounted on anoth
er horse, which belonged to James
Rannels. Instead of stopping at the
agency they went by there on the
dead run and at Three Mile coulee
the other fellow abandoned his worn
out horse and cached the saddle.
The couple arirved at the stage sta
tion on People's creek after staying
there all night, made an early start
the next morning, taking along one of
Charles Chamberlain's horses with- 1
out his permission. From there the
would-be horse thieves found their
way to the government sawmill near
Lodge Pole, where they rested for a
day or so.
Rannels' horse came back to town
and he went out to look for the sad
dle. He found the place where It had
been cached, but some one else had
been there before him and removed
it and now he is out a saddle, while
Dodge and Chamberlain are minus a

FOR HUMANE TREATMENT.
Railroad Companies Will Adhere to
Law in Regard to Livestock.
Washington. June 17.—Secretary of
Agriculture Wilson today held confer
ence with the representatives of west
ern roads, who came here for an ex
change of views with him regarding
the requirement of law as to length
of time livestock in transit should be
kepr in cars without food, water and
rest. The railroad officials, while ex
pressing their desire to comply with
the law in every way, explained to
the secretary that occasions arose
where its strict observance at all
times would not be possible. The
whole subject was thoroughly and
harmoniously canvassed, the secretary
said, and the railroad officials agreed
to co-operate with-him to the end that
animals may receive humane treat
ment in shipment.
