Russian and Japanese fleet engage in
terrific battle off Port Arthur. The
Russians lose their flagship and Ad=
miral but continue to fight.
[Special Dispatch to Daily Alaskan.]
St. Petersburg, April 14,? The combined Russian fleet and the Japanese ships un
der Admiral Togo are engaged in the hardest naval engagement of the war off Port
Arthur. The naval department is confident of Russia^ success notwithstanding the loss
of their admiral and his flagship.
St. Petersburg, April 14. ? While going to meet the Japanese fleet off Port Arthur
the Russian battleship Petropaulovisk struck a mine in the outer roadstead this morning.
The vessel heeled over and sank. The whole crew was lost. Four officers were saved.
The Petropaulovisk was flying the flag of Vice Admiral Marakoff, who went down with
The naval battle which ensued is still progressing off Port Arthur. It is estimated
that 700 persons perished when Petropaulovisk sank. Twenty persons in all escaped,
among whom was Grand Duke Cyril, who slightly wounded.
The redorts of the disaster have spread broadcast and caused intense excitement.
The Petropaulovisk was twice previously damaged in attacks on Port Arthur. She
was a first-class battleship of 10900 tons and manned by 700 men.
The department is censoring the news of th? battle at Port Arthur and this is
leading to the conviction that the reverses are more severe than has been rej>orted.

A Washingtonjdispatch in the Post
"Although several candidates have
only just begun their campaign for the
office, the indications are strong that
the president will appoint John G.
Brady, governor of Alaska, for a third
term. The strongest indication of all
in this connection is that Brady's reap
pointment is the president's deliber
ate intention at this time, and (many
critics to the contry notwithstanding).
Mr Roosevelt does not frequently
change his mind."
