SYDNEY, N. S., Aug. 2, Two Ger
man cruisers, were sighted today off
St Pierre, Mlq. They - are probably
from Mexican or West Indian vat?ra.
It is surmised that the object of their
presence so near Sydney harbor is to
secure coal for & transatlantic voyage,
or that they may have been detailed to
watch this port and the entrance to
the St Lawrence. A statement to thia
effect was made this evening by Cant
Postin, the officer commanding the de
tachment detailed to guard the cable
station at Lloyd Cove. He was noti
fied of the presence of the warships

Engineers Hark to
Call of Russian Czar.
SAN FRANCISCO, August 19. An
swering the call ;of the Czar, two of
Russia's 'foremost - engineers, connect
ed with the government in important
advisory capacities, have sailed by the
Pacific Mall liner Mongolia. They are
Wiacheslaw W. Landsberg and Nich
olas Roglnski, who for the last two
months have been studying the en
gineering and railroad situation in the
United States.
When news that war had broken
out was flashed around the world the
Russians were in New York. Receiv.
ing a summons home, they arranged
for passage op the Lusitania, and had
their baggage aboard the liner when it
j became apparent thftt they would not
be permitted to return to Russia via
England. The engineers then ascer
tained that by quick connections they
would be able to make the Mongolia
and travel hOme! by way of the Orient.
Leaving New York four, days ago, they
reached: here just in time to purchase
passage-on the Pacific Mailer. .
. The Russians will, go to Yokohama
on the Mongolit. thence to Vladivos

from Yokohama, is wearing the. port After enjoying the title of " venue
and according to a wireless message of Presidents" for two vearn Wahlnr
received at Honolula last night " ill
be at quarantine about daylight on
August 24.
It is the dispatch of this vessel for
San Francisco over which much spec
ulation has been indulged, lender
ordinary conditions the Chiyo Maru
would be ready to proceed to the coast
about 10 o'clock on next Tuesday
morning. That nothing has been
stated in the wireless to the contrary,
leads many to believe that the Chiyj
Mani in its 10-day passage from Japan
will be convoyed by war vessels.
The ultimatum given Germany by
Japan will expire on August 23. At
this date the vessels, were they dis
patched for the islands, would be in
close proximity to Honolulu. The
movement of the German cruisers
Leipzig and Nurnberg. in the north Pa
cific, are vet a matter of much con
jecture. Had the Leipzig sailed from
the California coast some day ago
for the islands this vessel would
cover the distance in time to meet
the fighting craft trom the other di
rection, about the first part of the
coming week.
The Seiyo Maru still rides . at an
chor. It was stated this morning that
unless the Chiyo Maru departs on the
regular schedule, no berth inside the
harbor can be found for the liner and
it will have to takc its place In the
roadstead. : .
The Chiyo Maru from China and Ja
pan ports is bringing 12C5 tona of
Oriental cargo for discharge at Hono

ber 116 Asiatics in the steerage.
Enterprise Will Now Visit Honolulu.
Before steaming" from Hilo for San
Francisco with more ; than 30 00 tons
of sugar, it was announced that the
Matson Navigation steamer Enterprise
which-has been discharged of a main
land freight will hereafter cover what
is better known as the "triangular
route" in the Pacific. The Enterprise
will call at Honolulu, Island ports.
thence to San Francisco and Seattle.
The vessel Is reported to have de
parted from Hawaii for the coast on
Wednesday morning.
