RUSSIANS SCORE THEIR FIRST
DISTINCT NAVAL SUCCESS.
A rCUNC GTFICER'S VERY DARING FEAT
Creeps Out In Launch and Torpedoea
Jap Warship Sets It on Fire, but

LIAO YANQ. (Special.) The Rus
siau fleet scored Its first distinct na
val success of the war on May 10 by
the torpedoing and crippling, thouga
pot the sinking of an armored Jap
anese cruiser lu Ta'enwan bay.
The Russian attack was carefully
planned on May 10, while the Japan
ese squadron was concentrated out
side Deiny, devoting Its whole atten
tion to Talienwan bay, and was car
ried out the same sight.
The attacking craft was not a regu
lar torpedo boat, but was only a small
naphtha launch In command of a
young naval officer wbo had with him
three Jackies. The launch mounted
small machine gun and carried three

boat pickets, and selecting the near

she stole toward her and succeeded in
exploding against her side a single
A deafening roar followed the ex

The crew of the cruiser was seen to
be fighting the fire, which they at last
succeeded in extinguishing. A sister
ship took the damaged vessel in tow
and disappeared to the southeast.
The launch escaped the hot fire di
rected against her by the Japanese
ships, but, being unable to return to
Port Arthur or to get Into Delny, she
was beached not far from Dalny.
Only a few of the higher officer
were aware of the plan, the success of
which depended upon secrecy. The
achievement raised the spirits of the
Russians afloat and ashore, and the
young naval officer who was the hero
of the exploit was feted and recom
mended for the cross of St. George.
The Russians, on May 11, appre
hending that the presence of a Japan
ese squadron meant an attempt to cap
ture Dalny, blew up the plera and
quietly evacuated the place.

people, Maurice Jacob, a young busi

and a Mr. Klngsley of Chicago, were
precipitated from the car Into the
swollen stream and drowned.
The accident was witnessed by
Fred Coleman of San Francisco, who
was unable to render any assistance.
The tramway consists of two steel
cables stretched acroes the river, upon
which a car runs which Is much ued

people entered the car to cross the
river. When they reached in Id stream
one of the strands parted. One plerc
ir.g shriek was heard and the four
were observed for a few moments
struggling In the rapids.
Both young men were athletes and
gave up their lives In heroic efforts
to save their companions. Mr. Jaroba

Ich Danrhcnko, popularly known aa
the Russian Archibald Forbes, who Is
now in the service of the Associated
Press, haa Just arrived here from
Port Arthur annd furnishes the fol
lowing chronicle of the events of the
first week of the Investment of that
fortress. Danchenko escaped from the
beleaguered city by the last train:
"From Thursday. May 5. the power

Adsuma, Asa ma. Idsumo. Iwalte and
another, the name of which is un
known, together with the flagship Mi

Hatsuex, Asahl. Yashima and the Fuji,
remained constantly in eight at Port
Arthur, departing every night and re
turning at daylight. The Japanese tor
pedo boats occasionally swept our
coast with searchlights at night, while
their barges lay In waiting off Pigeon
bay. beyond our vision on the western
horlton. and beneath the lofty hills
that skirt the Llao-Tung gulf. Appar
ently, the Japanese were watching to
see If we intended to Interfere with
their landing farther north.
"Our communications with the
North were broken on Thursday, and
the following day the telegraph office
in Port Arthur refused to accept our
Japanese cavalry reconnoitered the
peninsula from the nortn to ascertain
whether we were safely imprisoned.
But this fact did not cause any partic
ular lmpres!on in Port Arthur. The
weather was beautiful, a band was
playing on the boulevard, and there
were many people unconcernedly
promenading the atreets. We heard
that the Japanese had fired on the
last outgoing train, carrying the Rus
sian sick and wounded, and had suc
ceeded In wounding two of the passen
gers. Rumors also floated In announc
ing the destruction of the railroad and
the blowing up of some of the bridges,
but our spirits remained singularly
undepressed. The military officers
and men talked of nothing except a
secoud siege of Schastopol. although,
as a matter of fart. Sct,ato.o had
ceer been cut tiff from It communi
cations on the land side.
"'We can die like, our forefathers.'

allowed to remain any later than Fri

all it had to do was to pay the damage
