In an interview Rear Admiral F.n
il'iist's executive officer said:
"When the battle began the Admiral
was aboard the cruiser Oleg. which was
hit a number of times by large shot.
There was an incessant rain of shot
from quick-firing guns, and the ship was
soon badly damaged.
"The Admiral transferred his flag to
the Aurora, which then drew the com?
bined fire of many torpedo-boat destroy?
ers at close range, and the attack of sub?
marine.-. We were overwhelmed by the
latter. A mist arising, we made a dash
for the open sea and were followed by
the Oleg and the Jemtchug."
Rear Admiral Enquist is uninjured.
Captain Kgoriefl", of the Aurora, was
killed by a shell which struck the con?
ning tower, and he was buried at sea
the day before reaching Manila.

his arrival to the Emperor of Russia.
The battleship Ohio and the cruiser
Cincinnati are guarding the Russian
ships. No officiai action as to their dis?

The arrival of the three cruisers at
Manila clears up the conflicting reports
about these ships since the battle of
Japan sea. Admiral Togo at first re?
ported the Jemtchug sunk; then on sub?
sequent reports from his commanders it
was dropped from the list of destroyed
ships. Admiral Shiniamura, however, in

Washington. D. C. ?Special). ? The
(jnited States battleships South Carolina
and Michigan plans or which are now be?
ing perfected by the Bureau of Construc?
tion in Washington, will be the greatest
war vessels of the battleship type that
any nation has yet built.
Secretary Morton says their batteries
\v-y he among the most powerful afloat.
?A / t/r vessels will be heavily armored.
TUt adding of a thrrd screw, which
will call for the addition of another en?
gine, is reported to have been definitely
decided upon by the Bureau of Construc?
tion. This system, which was intio
duced into the nava by Rear-Admiral
Melville, although looked on with great
disfavor by foreign naval constructors,
has proved a great success on the Colum?
bia and Minneapolis. One of its ad?
vantages is that in cruising great econ?
omy is attained, in that when only a mod?
erate speed is required the central engine
alone is used. If a high rate of speed
is desired the two wing engines, and if
necessary all three, can be operated.
Another innovation under considera
ton is in the utilisation of u and to inch
guns as a complete battery. This has
never been tried in any navy. There is
not now a warship afloat carrying more
than four guns of cither of these cali?
