VISION OF SEA VICTORY.
Russia Believes Rojestvensky Has
Togo at Disadvantage.
St. Petersburg.—Admiral Nehogat
off's junction with Vice Admiral Ro
jestvensky is now considered by the
admiralty as practically assured and
hope for a successful issue in the
approaching struggle for mastery of
the sea is greatly encouraged. Nebo-
is regarded as the Blucher of
the situation, and, indeed, he is said
to resemble him greatly in tempera
ment. He may lack his strategy and
finesse, but, like the Prussian, he has
bulldog courage and is a born fighter
who goes straigiiL for the enemy.
If Vice Admiral Kamimura, like
Grouchy at Waterloo, has failed to
prevent a junction of the Russian
fleets, as the admiralty here believes
he has, the impression is strong that
Admiral Togo will not dare risk an
open battle with the combined fleets
of Rojestvensky and Nebogatoff and
will protect himself by torpedo at
tacks and possibly a long range ac
tion, being prepared to draw off in
the event that he is unable to make an

The Times' correspondent at Toklo
reports that the Japanese chamber of

The Times, in the course of a strong

BIG NAVAL BATTLE SOON.
London, May 11. — The alleged
whereabouts of the fleets of Admirals
Rojestvensky and Nebogatoflf and the
dispatches wired from Paris to the
effect that they left French waters at
the request of the French authorities
are not credited here. That thej joined
in French waters is certain, and that
they are still there is likewise a pala
ble fact. That they are to move north
ward may so, but it is not because
France demands it, but rather because
the Russian commanders feel that the
tiem has come to risk everything on
a desperate move, and the naval ex
perts here believe now that a naval
battle will soon be inevitable.
Rojestvensky has remained in French
waters because he entertained hopes
he could lure Togo far from his base
and thus throw the balanoe in favor of
the Russians. Apparently now he de
spairs of accomplishing this and has
determined to move boldly north and
give battle at any place, whether it be
off the coast of Luzon, in the straits of
Formosa 01 even in the open Pacific
