LONDON, May 29.— According to the
Dally Telegram, a private telegram
was received In London last night in
a very high quarter to the effect that
Vice Admiral Togo hnd gained a great
Based on the menger details received
here, most of the newspapers are ready
to believe the Japanese have secured a
victory. • •
The secrecy maintained nt Toklo ap
parently extends to the Kuropean le
gations. At any rate. Baron Hakash
ima, the Japanese minister here, de
clined to see newspaper correspondents,
much less to talk of the battle.
The Dally Telegraph's Toklo corre
spondent says that an intermittent fog
prevailed in the Sea of Japan Saturday.
It occasionally lifted when there was
brilliant sunshine. A high wind pre
vailed, with a rough sea.
The Russian ships were first sighted
at 6 o'clock in the morning, approach
ing Tsu island under cover of a fog,
which, however, lifted and the squad
ron retired. This squadron Is believed
to have consisted of six first class
ships and according to information re
ceived, twenty-one more warships were
not far away.
It Is reported from Hongkong that
the British fleet Is leaving for the north
at f u% speed.
BY NEWS OF BATTLE
By Associated Press.
ST. PETERSBURG, May 29. 2:15 a.
m.— ln this momentous hour the em
peror, the admiralty and the Russian
public are, waiting breathlessly for the
Japanese to furnish authentic news of
the fate of Vice Admiral Rojestvensky
and his fleet, in which the hopes of the
Russians are centered.
The official disposition is to construe
Tokio's silence favorably, but at the
same time the strategic reason for
silence is recognized.
The public, after the premature de
monstration of Saturday night is my
y clined to become pessimistic.
The reports sent to Washington by
the American consul at Nagasaki of
the sinking of five ltussian warships,
including a battleship and repair ship,
•was accepted as the tnost definite ana
the most authentic piece of news re
ceived up to midnight, and undoubted
ly produced a bad impression.
Fear Flagship Lost
The fear was expressed that the bat
tleship sunk might have been Rojest
vensky's, flagship, the Kniaz Souvar
off, on which the Japanese would un
doubtedly concentrate their fire. The
sinking of the repair ship Kamchatka,
which was fitted with the most modern
machinery, might, It was thought, prove
later to be a more severe Jobs than of,
a warship, but at the admiralty where
crowds congregated Sunday afternoon
and evening, hope was expressed thnt
if Rojestvensky had cleared the gate
way to the sea of Japan with no great'
er loss than that reported by the
American consul, the passage had not
bren dearly purchased, especially If
later reports should prove that the
Japanese losses were anything like
Czar Shows Great Anxiety
Probably no one In Iluscla displayed
such Intenso anxiety hn the emperor.
Early Sunday morning he summoned
Crand Duke Alexis, high admiral; Ad
miral Avellan, head or the Russian ad
miralty department, and Admiral Wlr
enlus, chief of tho general Staff of th«
navy, to Tsarskoe-Helo, H nd remained
closeted with them up to a late hour
last night. Impatiently awaiting Infor
mation, and poring over the charts.
The- only news received by his majes
ty from ltussian houicpb were dis
; patches from Jtunßlan agents and con
suls at Chinese ports which contained
nothing but current rumors. The only
time the emperor left tho members of
the 1 cabinet was to attend service In
the chapel of the Alexandra palace,

fleet and that the Japanese were await
ing the arrival of the second Russian,
division before making a general an
The majority of the naval authori
ties, however, continue to believe that
Rojestvensky could not risk a division
of his fighting ships. "
Think Torpedoes Used
Those of an optimistic turn hope that
Rojestvensky did actually throw Togo
off the trail and escaped him as the
French fleet eluded Nelson on the way
to Egypt, and that they encountered
only torpedo boats in the straits of
Korea. This opinion, though, is not
generally shared, and the great ma
jority think that Togo's scouts were
able to keep in touch with the fighting
division and that the Japanese lay In
wait for Rojestvensky In the narrow
waters where a battle Is reported to
have taken place.
Nevertheless, practically nobody be-
lieves that Togo offered open battle,
the consensus of opinion being that
the Japanese, favored by a stage of
the moon, which was at three-quarters
full, waited and delivered a series of
torpedo attacks Saturday night with
such aid as their heavy ships could
offer without running too much risk.
Mines may have played an important
role and perhaps been responsible for
a large share of the losses reported. At
any rate, the result is not fully satis
factory to the naval authorities.
Officers Still Hopeful
If Is possible that a running light at
long range took place Sunday, from
which better results are anticipated, as
the naval authorities generally do not
believe thnt torpedoing could be re
newed Sunday night in the open sea.
