Russian Admiral Not Justified in Firing Upon
the British Trawlers, But Was War*
ranted in Fearing An Attack
(Special Dispatch to Daily Alaskan.)
Paris. Feb. 2 5 ? The North sea board of arbitration hat* 1
finally rendered its decision. It is unanimously agreed that
there were no Jaianese torpedo boats in the North sea at
the time of the firing upon the Hull trawlers, but it is
agreed that the Russiau admiral was justified in fearing an j
attack. A majority of the board decides, however, that the
Russian admiral was not justified in opening fire on the
trawler?. The Russian commissioners dissent from this con '
cfusion.
No reflection is cast upon the valor or inhumanity of
the Russian admiral.
