Admiral Togo made another desper

Vice Admiral Makaroff steamed out
to give battle. the Japanese command

The Japanese practically repeated
the tactics of February 24 by sending
ig four fire ships, preceded by a tor
pedo boat flotilla, with the exception
that the fire ships this time were
armed with Hotchkiss guns for the
purpose of keping off the Russian
torpedo boats destroyers.
The enemy's attempt was discov
ered by means of the shore search
lights and a heavy fire was opened
from the batteries, and from two
gunboats, which were guarding the
entrance to the harbor. The Russian
torpedo boat destroyer Silni was out
side on scouting duty, and to the dash
and nerve of her commander, Lieut.
Krinizki, is chiefly due the complete
defeat of the plans of the Japanese.
He at once made straight for the on
coming ships under a hail of fire
K from the Hotchkiss guns, and torpe
doed the leading ship. which sheered
off, followed by .the others, three oi
them being piled up on the shore un
der Golden Hill and one under the
light house. The Silni then engaged
the entire six torpedo boats of the
enemy. coming out from a terrific
fight with seven killed and her com
mander and twelve of her complement
wou~tnded, but on the Japanese side
only one boat's crew was saved. In
addition. according to unofmcial re
po.rts, it is believed that the Japanese

Havird May Recover.
Dr. 0. B. Mayer went to Saluda
on Sunday and amputated the right
arm of Pope Havird, who was shot
on the igth of this month by John
Yarbrough. The operation was very
successful and ,Dr. Mayer hopes that
Havird will get well.
The circumstances of the shooting
and unusual circumstances preced
ing it. are remembered. Yarbrough
was working Havird's land and Hav
