SKBYDLOFF'S, RAID IS < OVER.
Tokio, June 19, 5 p. m.-The re?
markable raid of the Russian Vladi?
vostok squadron evidently is over.
The squadron disappeared yesterday
off Cape Han&shi, steering to the
north, and - it has not been reported
since. It is assumed to be returning
Whether or not a portion of Vice
Admiral Kamimura's squadron is

is a carefully guarded secret. As?
suming that Vice Admiral Kami m nra
dispatched some of his vessels to Vlad?
ivostok when he learned that the Rus
ians squadron was off Iki island, these
ships would have had ample time to
arrive there ahead of the Russians
and will be ready to give battle.
The weather has been foggy and
thus conditions have been against the

sians captured a British steamer laden

of Yezo, and sent her to Vladivostok

not confirmed by the Japanese navy
The transports Sado, Hitachi and
Izunii were the only ones overhauled
by the Russians. Japan had 13 trans?
ports in and near the straits of Corea
the morning the Sado and Hitachi
were caught and she was fortunate
that only the three ships mentioned
were overtaken by the enemy.
It is impossible to get complete facts
concerning the sinking of the Hitachi.
She evidently failed to stop when sig- !
sailed to do so by the Russian vessel.
The claim is made that Capt. Camp- i
-bell, the English master of the Hita?
chi, refused to stop and planned to
ram the ruin, but this is denied, lt
is said that the Japanese officers on
board the Hitachi declined to surren?
der and required Capt Campbell to
keep his ship going. The assertion
that the Russians fired upon the life

200 men, has been recalled.
Some of these even declare that if
Vice Admiral Kamimnra tails to catch
the Russian vessels before tbe? reach
Vladivostok he should either resign
from the navy or commit suicide.
The popular demand for his replace?
ment is growing but the public is with?
out information as to the nature of his
orders or the plans of the naval cam?
paign and fails to make allowance for
the limitation of conditions.
Vice Admiral Kamimnra:s squadron
was lying off Tsu island when the
raiding Russians reached Okino isl?
and. He immediately started in pur?
suit of the enemy but rains obscured
the sea and an electrical storm inter
fered with his system of wireless tele
graphy. Vice Admiral Kamimnra is
a splendid officer and the only possible
indictment against him is one of lack
of good luck. The Japanese generally
magnify the importance of this raid,
which has no material effect upon the
war. It was a desperate veuture, and
it is believed here to have succeeded
only through blind lack.
The Yawata and the Ansei, two sail?
ing ships, were sunk by th? Russians
on Thursday between Koa island and

ADMIRAL SKRYDLOFFS' REPORT
St Petersburg, June 19.-Emperor
Nicholas has received the following
dispatches dated June 19, from Vice
Admiral Skrydloff :
"On Jone 15tb ocr cruiser division
encountered in the strait of Corea a
Japanese transport steaming from the
sonth in the direction of the Japanese
coast which was visible on the hori?
"On the expiration of the time given
those on hoard to lower boats and
leave the ship, permission to do which
was taken advantage of by part of the
crew, the transport was sunk by cur
"Shortly afterwards two more trans?
ports were sighted to the southeast.
The ships proved to be the Hitachi
and the Sando, the former with troops
and the latter carrying coolies, horses I
and a railway plant. The transports
refused to surrender and at the end
of the period granted those on board
to take to the boats the two vessels
were sunk by torpedoes and shells.
"The losses of the three transports,
the tonnage of which aggregated 15,
000 tons, consisted of a portion of the
troops and crews, a large quantity of
war material and the railway plant.
"On June lGth our squadron met the
British steamer Allenton, which was
proceeding south with a cargo of coal
from the port of Mourorun, island of
Hokkaido (the administrative name ,
of the Japanese island of Yezzo). The
lack of clearances in her papers and
the irregularity of her log excited sus?
picion concerning the neutrality of
her cargo. The steamer therefore was
sent to Vladivostok in charge of a de?
tachment of soldiers commanded by
Lieut. Pitr?ff. She has arrived at
Vladivostok where a prize court will
consider her case.,,
SKRYDLOFF ELUDED HIM.
Tokio, JuneJX), noon.-Vice Ad?
miral Kamimura returned to his base
yesterday * (Sunday) without having
discovered the Kussian Vladivostok
Tokio, June 20, j>. m.-Further
reports received here show that the
blow inflicted by Gen. Oku on the
Russians in the fighting at Te li SSH
(Vafangow) on June 15 was more se?
vere than at first, was believed. The
number of Russians killed in this
battle will probably exceed 2,000 and
their total loss, including' prisoners
is estimated ai 10,000. The Japanese
losses are less than 1,000, or about
one-tenth of the Russian total
Up to- June 17, Gen. Oku had bur?
ied 1,516 Russians dead and he reports
that macy more dead have been found.
Chinese who watched the fighting
from the Russian side report that the
Russians removed many dead to the
trains with: their wounded, and that
they buried or cremated many corpses
in the village of Hua Sung Kou be?
fore they retreated.
The number of prisoners and troph?
ies taken by the Japanese is encourag?
ing. Gen. Oku is not yet able to re?
port the total number of prisoners.
RUSSIANS SAY 3,000.
St Petersburg, Jane 20, 5.05 p. m.
-A detailed report of the Russian
losses at the battle of Vafangow given
out this afternoon places the total at
3,000 killed and wounded, mostly men
who belonged to the troops forming
the Russian right flank.
WOUNDED OFFICER'S REPORT
OF THE BATTLE OF VAFANGOW.
Newchwang, June 20, 6 a. m.-A
Russian officer who was wounded in
the battle at Vafangow (Telissu) told
an Associated Press correspondent that
the losses on both sides were severe.
He placed the Russian casualties at at
least 7,000. He says no soldiers in the
world could withstand the Japanese
as they have been fighting lately.
Their artillery fire, he claims, is mar?
velously effective. The Russians
fought stubbornly but were unable to
withstand the enemy's dashing persist?
ency. Several hundred wounded Rus?
sians have been sent north owing to a
lack of hospitals and surgeons. All
the available transportation has to be
used for supplies at the expense of the
sick and wounded. The Japanese bur?
ied most of the Russian dead after the
battle. It is estimated on information
obtainable that the Japanese force
moving northward is 70,000 strong,
with 90,000 men in the aggregate en?
gaged in the operations at Port Ar?
thur. Several Japanese spies have re?
cently been captured a few miles south
of Newchwang. The Russians are
becoming more vigilant and are
watching newspaper messages closely.
USED LYDDITE SHELL.
Si Mu Chen, Manchuria, June 20.

of Vafangow included heavy siege guns

battlefield. The Japanese suffered
tremendous losses in turning the Rus?

TO ISOLATE PORT ARTHUR.
Washington, June 20.-An explana?
tion of the Japanese campaign on the
Liao Tung peninsula especially with
reference to Port Arthur is contained
in an advice that has reached this
city from a source believed to be ab?
solutely reliable. The Japanese tac?
tics which have so puzzled the Rus?
sians are intended to isolate Port Ar?
thur but do not contemplate an attack
on the place by Gen. Oku's army.
The actual work of reducing Port Ar?
thur will be confided to another Japa?
nese army nuder command of Gen.
Nogi, which will be landed on the
peninsula (and indeed may even now
be landed) at a point sonth of Gen.
Oku's position and considerably nearer
Port Arthur. On the first of June no
less than 26 transports had been gath?
ered at one of the Japanese ports to
embark this army and it is probable
that the vessels attacked by the Vlad?
ivostok squadron were of this number.
PORT ARTHUR'S STATUS.
Indianapolis, June 20.-The News
has received a special cablegram from
Hector Fuller, its special staff war
correspondent at Chefoo, giving the
following account of his release from
Port Arthur and the situation inside
the besieged fortress:
"Chefoo, June 20..-After spending
five days in a Russian prison, I was
released and put on board a Chinee
junk and sent to this place.
"The stories of starvation in Port
Arthur spread by the Japanese are
untrue, as stores and supplies are con?
stantly arriving at the besieged city ?
from Chinese ports, The Japanese j
blockade is ineffective.
"The garrison consists of between
ii0.0(.0and 60,000 troops and the health
of both soldiers and civilians is goud.
"The damaged battleships have all
been repaired and th? haroor entrance
cleared of obstrnctions. Immense new
forts have been constructed and, in
my opiniou, the place is in no imme?
diate danger of falling into the hands
of the Japanese.

ssa made on the 8th inst., was easily
repulsed. I was the first corresp?nd?
ete to enter Port Arthur since ths
Mr. Fuller was rowed across to Port
Arthur from the Miautao islands by
two Chinamen in an open boat and
li.nding June 13 was seized, blindfold?
ed and thrown into a prison inside the
fortress as was announced at the time
by the Associated Press.

emperor: "The cruiser division has

RUSSIAN VICE ADMIRAL'S REPORT.
Bezobrazoff Tells of His Destruc?
tion of Japanese Transports.
> Vladivostok, June 21.-Lying in the
hai bor are the three Russian cruisers
wh ich have just returned from their
successful raid in the Japanese sea
anc: the straits of Corea. Vice Ad?
miral Bozobrazoff took the squadron
out Jnne 12.
The first day the war ships were fog
bound. * They reached the Corean
straits June 15 and were sighted and
watched by a fast three-masted Japa?
neso cruiser. Off Tsu island the Rus?
sia! pursued a vessel resembling a
yacht, which escaped in shore. They
sank the Japanese transport Idznmi
off Kotsu island. The Idznmi was
brio ging back invalided soldiers from
Porn Dalny, 105 of whom were rescued
by ene of the Russian cruisers.
The Japanese transports Hitachi and
Sado were next sighted and soon after
the Hitachi, which was filled with
troops, disregarded the signal to stop,
and put on full speed. The Russian
cruisers thereuppon opened fire on the
Hitachi, crippling her engines and
setting her decks aflame. Still the
Japanese refused to haul down their
flag. The vessel was then seen to keel
over and hundreds of Japanese jumped
into the sea. They were all drowned.
The Hitachi was then sunk by a tor?
The Sado obeyed the summons to
stop. She carried 1,350 coolies for
railroad work in Corea, 1,200 tons of
coal, 1,000 tons of rice, railroad and
telegraph equipment, a hundred horses
and ?I large amount of specie.
The specie was throwu overboard by
the purser. Besides ten boats, the
Sado carried 12 rafts, each capable of
carrying 100 men. As soon as the
crew was ordered to leave the ship the
coolies rushed on deck, filled the boats
and headed them for the coast. Ad?
miral Bezobrazoff sent boats to the
Sado, to take off the captain and of
ficere" Capt. Oguro, 12 military
officers and three Englishmen in the
Japanese service came. The others
refused to leave the ship. The Rus?
sians having done everything possible
to s?.ve the lives of those on board,
discharged two torpedoes against the
vessel A heavy squall broke at the
time and hid the sinking transport
from view. A three-masted Japanese
cruiser witnessed the whole affair.
The Russians caught her wireless
messages. The apparatus on the ene?
my's cruiser worked incessantly and
messages were recorded on board the
Russian cruisers and were translated
by some of the Japanese prisoners.
One message read :
"Tie Russians are in the straits.
Run for safety."
Tho Prize Court is certain to con?
demn the British collier A linton, cap?
tured by the Russian squadron during
the raid. She came out at the begin?
ning of the war and went around the
Cape of Good Hope so as to avoid the
squadron of Vice Admiral Wirenius,
and then engaged in carrying Japa?
nese coal from Muranron to Sasebo,
Japan. The cargoes were nominally
consigned in each case to British firms
at Hong Kong and Singapore.
The Sabo, according to Japanesa ad?
vices, did not founder ; she was beach?
ed on the east coast of Okino Island,
and was eventually pulled off and
towed to port.

To Place the Responsibility for th
Recent Calamity in New York
New York, Jnne 20.-The coroner'
inquest was begun today in the mat
ter of the burning of the steamer Slo
cum and the great loss of life resultinj
therefrom in New York harbor "on las
President Barnaby of the Knicker
booker Steamboat company, owner o
the Gen. Slocum, was the first wit
ness and from him it was learned tha
; the actual operation of the stearne
was under Capt Van Schaick, wh<
j received his instructions from Capt
? Pease. On application of the latter
he said, an inspection of the Slocnn
was made by the United States author
ities before she was put in commissioi
this year, adding, "It was report?e
to ns that the Slocum was in thorougl
good order and working condition."
He had not personally inspected th<
boat but said he had examined the re
ports of the company's inspection anc
that by the United States inspectior
The* certificate of United States in
spection was placed in evidence. 11
certified that on May 7, 1904, the Gen.
Slocum was in good condition, to car?
ry 2,500 passengers, and that?|t hac
aboard 2,250 lifepreservers.
According to the testimony of Johr
J. Coakley, one of the Slocum's deck
hands, at the corner's inquest, he
never had been instructed in a fire
drill since he became an employee of
the Knickerbocker company at the
beginning of last season. Coakley said
he first learned that the steamer was
on fire when a small boy called his at?
tention to smoke rolling down from
the bow. Coakley said he ran up to?
ward the bow of the steamer and
found a blaze in the locker where the
oil lamps were kept. He dumped char?
coal on it, hoping to smother the
flames, then he let down the hose and
called for assistance. The fire was so
hot that he and those who came to
help him were driven ont of the lock?
er, but they got the hose in position
I and had just directed a stream on the
fire when the hose burst.
It was impossible to reach any of
the life rafts, because of the panic,
but one of the life boats was lowered.
The other boats, were so surrounded
by struggling persons that the crew
could not get at them. The boat
which they succeeded in clearing and
which was filled with women and
children, capsized while it was being
lowered from the davits.
Several of the men corroborated
Coakley's story in most of the details,
but none of them knew of the lifeboat
being lowered. One of the men, James
Corcoran, described the solid rubber
washer attached to the standpipe to
prevent water dripping into the hose
and rotting it. To get this washer off
so the hose could be used, it would
have been necessary to disconnect the
hose from the standpipe. Corcoran
did not see this done.
Edward Flanagan, the mate for the
last two seasons on the Slocum, who
hired the deck crew of that boat, said
that the forward cabin where the fire
broke ont was used for storing old
lines and worn ont awnings and
brooms. He had one barrel of sperm
oil there and there were some empty
barrels that had contained oil.
"Were there any arrangments lo
turn steam into the lower deck?"
"Not to my knowledge."
Flanagan denied any knowledge of
the "false washer" which locked the
He said he manned the water pipes
as soon as possible but when the water
pressure came the hose burst. Flana?
gan gave testimony as to the visits of
the inspectors and said they condemned
sbTie ot' tbe life preservers.
The inquest was adjourned until to |
It was expected that striking facts
would be adduced at the inquest, fer, j
in addition to the proof that the Jife j
preservers W6re rotten, that the firs
hose burst, that the lifeboats davits
would net work and that the life rafts
were so fastened to the decks that they
could net be moved, Coroner Berry
was said to have evidence that many
of the ring preservers were so heavy
that they sank like lead.
Two bodies were found on the bot- '
tom of the river with these ring pre- '
servers around them. Another charge
which the coroner was to investigate
was one to the effect that a portion of
the guard rail to which four bodies
were found clinging when it was
raised from the bottom of the river
yesterday was rotten and worm-eaten.
Many More Bodies Found.
New York, June 21.-Evidence of a
startling nature, which doubtless will
have an important bearing upon the
ultimate result of the coroner's in?
quiry into the Gen. Slocum disaster,
was forthcoming at the inquest today.
Perhaps the most unexpected inci?
dent was the refusal to answer ques?
tions of Henry Lundberg, a United
States steamboat inspector, who was
supposed to have inspected the life
preservers and the hull of the ill-fated
steamer. His refusal was based on the
ground that an answer might tend to
incriminate him and he acted on the
advice of his counsel.
The coroner committed Lundberg to
the house of detention but later ac?
cepted $500 bail for his appearance at
the hearing tomorrow which was satis?
factory to the assistant district at?
By the use of dynamite and heavy
guns fired by men from the second
battery scores of bodies were brought
up from the bottom around the shores
of North Brother island today. From
sunrise to sunset the searchers along
the beach and in the boats gathered
in 112, bringing the number cf bodies
recovered to date up to the appalling
total of 845.
Of these 700 have been identified and
the missing still are approximated at
something more than 300. Many of
the bodies last found will never he
identified because of the changes that
have taken place during the week
they have been under the water.
Admiral Skrydloff has done much
to restore the prestige of Russian
arms by his daring cruise, which has
naturally dstnrbed the enemy greatly
and wrought considerable damage to
them. His report to the Czar shows
that in the destruction of the Japa?
nese transports he overhauled, besides
incapacitating a great number of
troops, who were being sent against
the Russians, he captured and destroy?
ed a complete railroad equipment,
which was doubtless designed for very
important use by the Japanese. It
may be that the raid of the Vladivos?
tok squadron has given a material
respite to Port Arthur and will Ira ve a
most important effect on the Russian
Asheville, N. C., June 20.-Col.
Charles McNamee, manager of the
Biltmore estate, has resigned. It is
understood that Mr. Vanderbilt has
ordered a curtailment of expenses in
every department at Biltmore, and
that salaries all round are to be cut.
It is also understood that Col. Mc?
Namee is to go to Seattle io look
after Vanderbilt's interests there. It
ateo is understood that changes in a
great many departments are to be
made when Mr. Vanderbilt returns
from the continent.
Jackson, Miss, June 19.-J. B.
Mills, treasurer of Summitt and a
prominent citizen of South Mississip?
pi, committed suicide hore early to?
day, having come to a local hotel for
the purpose, fie left notes to several
