Shanohai, July 31. Tho following
is the latest Chinese version of the

chnrtcred by China from the China
Merchants' Trading and Steamship
company: When the Kow Shung was
overhauled by the Japanese cruiser,
the Utter sent n boat alongside the
transport, with aprite crew, to convey
hor to Japan. The Japanese boarded
her nnd ordered her commander,
Captain Galsworthy, an Kngltshinan,
to proceed to Japan. The captain re
fused to oboy this order, and tho
Japanese withdrew to report to the
commander of tholr cruiser. Tho lat
ter then opened fire ou the transport,
using tho machine guns mounted In
tho top of tho Japan eke ship. This
lire was so well directed that It soou
cleared tho Kow Sitting's decks. Tho
cruiser then discharged two torpedoes
at the transport, sinking her and
drowning nearly all of the 2,000 souls
Colonel von Haunekcn, a (Serman,
formerly tho viceroy's aldo de camp,
and a number of other foreigu oflicers
were among those killed by tho Wro
from tho tops of tho cruiser before
the torpedoes were discharged.
The effect of tho explosion of the
torpedoes is said to have been terrific,
