MIKADO WROUGHT VICTORY.
From Togo Down, Naval Men De

Was Impossible by Mere
Human Power and
Was Due to the
A dispatch from Tokio says the car
dinal causes of Rojestvensky's defeat
have been the subject of general dis
cussion here. One Japanese expert
gives the following analysis:
First. An imperfect reconnoissance
and incomplete, faulty and misleading
Second. An imperfect battle for
mation, which indicated that Rojest
vensky did not expect to meet Togo
Third. The weather. the direction
of the wind and the sunlight were un
favorable to the Russians, Togo hav
ing the sun behind him and firing with
the wind, while the Russians had the
sunlight in their eyes and fired against
Fourth. The Russians wasted their
ammunition and eventually ran short.
It is believed that the surrender of
Nebogatoff was necessary because his
ammunition had been expended.
Fifth. The marked inferiority of
the Russian gunnery.
Some experts criticize Rojestvensky
for essaying the Tsushima channel.
Others uphold him. saying that his
Ionly chance lay in going through that
Ichannel. The impression prevails
that Rojestvensky was totally una
ware of the presence of Togo's entire
fleet off Tsis,hima. Many believed that
it was necessary for Togo to take a
station at a pivotal point, from which
point it would be possible to intercept
the Russians entering either Tsushi
ma, Tsugaru or Soya channels. Calcu
lations placed the pivotal point on the
western coasts, near the western en
trance of Tsugaru channel. Togo's
real whereabouts were known to
many Japanese, but the secret was
successfully guarded-another exam
ple of the willingness and ability of
the Japanese tc prserve military se
crets. Leaving aside the questions of
preparedness and superior conditions,
the superiority of the Japanese per
sonnel, fresh fro-,i fifteen months' suc
cessful campaigning under all possi
ble conditions, must be taken into
consideration. Many ascribe the vic
tory entirely to the superior mark
manship of the Japanese. Tlogo, real
izing that it would probably be nec
essary to fight in the open sea, gave
his crews long training in firing dur
ing rough weather with a 'heavy wind
blowing and the ships rolling. When
the hostile fleets met, the superiority
of the Japanese immediately became
evident. The sinking of the battle
ships and armored cruisers by shell
fire testifies to the deadly accuracy of
the Japanese guns, and destroys the
theory that it is impossible to sink
stich ships by shell fire.
The attitude of Japanese naval men
towards victory is curious. Togo's
message to the Emperor saying that
the victory was the result of the Em
peror's superhuman influence strikes
the keynote of the navy's attitude.
The officers openly say tihat the mar
velous result obtained was impossible
by mere human achievement alone.

The Russian government has shown
that it has not weakened in this hour
of disaster. Instead of yielding to the
strong demnands which the radicals
hoped A.dmiral Rojestvensky's defeat
would force the govrnment to grant,
the emperor issued a ukase Sunday
conferring greatly increased powers
'on Gov. Gen. Trepoff, making him as
sistant minister of the interior in
place of Maj. Gen. Rydzefsky, who is
made a senator; also chief of the de
partment of police and commander of
the corps of the gendarmerie Gep.
Trepoff is given the right by the
ukase to close all assemblies and con
gresses; to suspend indefinitely all so
cieties; leagues; and oth'er bodies mani

all other steps necessary to preserve

The document is of the deepest im
portance in the present state of Rus
sia and indicates that the government, a
while steadily proceeding in its plans
for the fulfillment of the imperial
promises contained in the rescript of
March 3, is determined not to be
swerved from its purpose by the pres
sure of military and naval disasters
but in its own time and as speedily
as possible to give the nation the leg
islative body on which the Bouligin
commision has been working.. In it
may perhaps also be read the intima
tion that the war will continue and
that the question of peace will not be
submitted to a zemsky sobor.
.According to The Russ, the result
of the labors of the Bouligin commis
sion which has now been printed and
submitted to the commissioners does
not embody a definite plan for the or
ganization and functions of a new
governmental body but rather a col
tection and classification of the neces
sary data for the formation of an as

the various points in dispute and
leaving the final decision in the hands
of the ministers.
The material gathered by the com
mission has been grouped under six
heads-first, a historical survey of the
forms assumed by popular representa
tion in Russia from the fifth to the
sixth eentury; second, consideration
of the effect of the summoning of a
popular assembly on the country un
der present circumstances; third, the
extent to which suffrage shall be
granted, whether on universal educa
tional, or property qualifications, and
whether classes and occupations
should be represented; fourth, the
extent of the assembly's right to in
terpollate ministers; fifth, the extent
of the assembly's rights over the bud-.

government slLould be removed to the
competency of the assembly.
