Whether the vessel was the victim of i torpedo or a mine has not been determined and, elnce It is believed twit no one nliourd waj, saved, thp an nrr to this question . may never be known Tho Hampshire went down In (ictp water. News of the loss of the Hampshire w.th the Secretary for War. the mem Ure of his party and the olllcers and men of the cruiser vv.is received at the Aomirslty in the following: despatch Horn Admiral Sir John Jelllcoe, com manding the Hritlh Grand Fleet: 1 have to report with deep regret t..at his MaJtstyV ship Hampshire, t-apt. Herbert J. Savlll, R. X., with l.oi d Kitchener and !i!b staff on tj.ird, was sunk last night at about b o'clock to the west of the Orkneys, a.thcr by a mine or a torpedo. Four bouts were seen by Observers en shore to leave the ship. The v.,nd was north northwest and heavy ns were running, pjtrol vessels ' H J destroyers at once proceeded to tile spot and a pany was sent along tee coast to search, but only some bodies and a capsized boat have been found up to the present. As the whole shore has been searched from the seaward, I greatly fear that there it. little hope of there being any sur vivor. No report has yet been received from the search pnrty on shore. Wan on Way to Ilnaala, An official statement Issued this eve ning says that the Hampshire was on he way to Russia nnd that Knrl Kitch ener was to have discussed Impor tant military and financial questions with Emperor Xlcholas. The shock of the news was the more Were In London because It was not ticn known that Lord Kitchener was punning to visit Kussin or tlut he had left London. In the absence of olllclal ord as to whether the Hampshire was link by a mine or a torpedo the man In the street Is convinced that a tor polo from n German submarine sank the vessel. Naval officers while await ing further details are sceptical of this because of the speed of the Hamp shire, nearly 52H knots, and the heavy tea which was running at the time. Tliey are Inclined to nttribtite the loss of the cruiser to n mine, Tho normal complement of tho Hampshire was 655 ethcers and men. Lord Kitchener had made frequent tr'ps ahroad since the outbreak of the war He made one trip to tho Dar danelles last fall and went to Franco frequently. The official press bureau announced to-night that a memorial service will 1 held for Lord Kitchener at St. l'aiil's, Thp dato for this has not yet l 11 fixed.

Special Cablt Pmpauh to Tim 9i v. London, June 6. The Russian War Office to-night reports that the nuvv offensive along the 250 mile front of the Austro-Hungarians ha thus far resulted In the capture of 480 officers nnd 26,000 men, twenty-seven guns and fifty machine guns. Vienna officially admits that the Aus. Ltrlans were compelled to withdraw their lines north of okna to positions "pre pared a little more than three miles to the south." This means that the first effective Impress of the new Husslnn drive has been made at the tactically and politically most vital jiolnt of the front under attack, Just north of the nuko-wlna-ncssarabta border. If the Rus sian success Is followed up, Ciernowlti, the Hukowlna capital, Is once more serl. ously threatered, nnd an Invasion of the Oallcian crownland would go far toward uchlcvlng the chief political aim of the new offensive, the entry of Tlumftnla on the Allies' side, All along the front a violent battle rages. The Austrian War Office empha sizes that the Russian forces are "con tlnuilly becoming stronger" betweiei Mlynow, on the Ikwa, and the area northwest of Olyka. It Is at this latter point that the Russian line forms u salient In the Austrian front, the heal of which points straight at the Volhynlan fortress of Lutzk. Attacks I nc reuse In Vmrr. Roth here and on the Hukowlna the Russians seem determined to break through. Thus far the Austrian line seems intact, hut the fury of the Rus sian assaults Is Inrfeaslng hourly. The Austrian statement asserts that the Rus sians are losing heavily, In one region a battalion l."n" men having lost 3T.0 men In killed, The Russian official late ment follows ; W'e captUK'd 4S0 officers, 25,000 men, twenty-seven guns nnd fifty ma chine guns. The Austrian War Officii report fol lows The battle n the northeast front continued on the hole front of 21ft miles -vlth undiminished stubbornness. E3 North of Okna, after stiff and fluctuat ing battles, we withdrew our shatteied first positions to the line piepared live kilometers to the south. Near Jurlowlec. on the lower Strp.t, the enemy to-day attacked nftei ar tillery preparation. He was cverj where repulstd, at somu place. In hand fighting. At the same time a strong Russian attack west of Tteinbowhi (soutli of Tarnopol) broke down under our gun lire.

Near Sopanow (southean of Iiulmo) there -were numerous attacks by the enemy, with unimportant results, Between Mlynow, on the Ikwa, and the regions northwest of Oljkn, where the Russians nre continually becoming stronger, there Is bitter lighting.

The action of the Pro gressive delegates in running avvny from the control of llcorgo W. Perkins nnd other Progressive leaders was tho most Important development m the general situation. On the Republican side of th fer'e Justice Hughes was still leading th field, with his opponent conceding him 270 votes nnd the Hughes m.inageis claiming nt least 3.10 m the first ballot. The favorite smis, aided by several of the old lino leaders, who nre Intent upon heading off the Hughes movement, made a frantic effort to-diy to get together an I pool their strength for on of their number against the Jurist Hut on thl occasion, as in previous ones, they count not agree nnd their efforts ended In failure favorite sons' Tiilnl Mrciimh.

The feeling among patty leaders la that the Republican nomination will h. won by Justice Hughes or l'.IIIiu Root or Senator Harding of Ohio. If the llughe'i strength disintegrates It Is llkelv to go either to .Mr. Itoot or Senator Harding A strong effort was put forth to-day in the Interest of both of these men. but It was acknowledged that little headway had been made for them. A remarkable situation has developed at Chicago. The ao-called Old Huarrt leaders want neither Hughes nor Roose lelt. Some of them, though, nre looking wltli greater favor upon Col. Roosevelt than they are upon the Justice because they believe the otganlzatlon would re ceive better treatment nt Mr. Roosevelt's hands.
