Besides Sinking the Knight Command er and Halting the Tslnan the Vla divostok Fleet Sank Two Japanese Ve8iels and Captured German Vessel Arabia and British Ship Cheltenham Yokohama, July 20. Captain Brown of tho steamer Tslnan, which brought the crew of the steamer Knight Com mander Into port, says that the Knight Commander met three Russian war ships at 7:30 o'clock Saturday morn ing off the province of Izu. The Russian officers who boarded the Knight Commander took her cap tain back with them and ordered thn crew of the Knight Commander M come on board one of the Russian war ships within 10 minutes. The Rub elans then sank the Knight Com mandcr. At 3 o'clock In the afternoon the Russian vessels met the Tslnan and transferred the crew of the Knight Commander to this vessel. An Indian boatswain of the Knight Comandai says the Russians boasted that, be sides sinking the Knight Commander and halting the Tslnan, they had sunk two small Japanese vessels and that before meeting tho Knight Commander they had captured a German steamer believed to be tho Arabia, belonging to the Hamburg-American line, and the Cheltenham, a British vessel. The Russians said they had plenty of coal. Before leaving the Tslnan, Captain Brown was ordered to blow off pteam and not 4o move his vessel until the Russians had disapposreri ever the horizon. When last seen at 7 o'clock In the evening the Russlin warships were steaming In a souther ly direction toward the mouth ol Toklo buy. The American Trading company, agents at Yokohama for the Knight Commander, deny that the vessel had any contraband on board, according to her manifest. The threo Russian warships which sank the Knight Commander are re ported by Captain Brown to be crowd ed with men. Their bottoms are foul and they look grim and ugly. The Russian vessels are thought to be short of prize crews. The Tsinan brought In a number of passengers Including women and children from Australia. Americans are anxious concerning the possible fate of tho Korea, be longing to the Pacific Mall Steamshtf company and the American steamei Shawmut which left Puget Sound on July 1G for Hong Kong. It Is not known whether either of these steam ers carries contraband. AMERICAN ARMY SUPPLIES. On Board British Ship Ardova Seizeo In the Red Sea. Washington, July 2fi. A fact de veloped which might have led to seri ous complications had It not been an nounced earlier In the day that the Russian government had given orders for the release at Suez of the British ship Ardova, which had on board a large quantity of supplies being shipped by the war department to the Philippine government, Includlnn about 250 tons of powder and much other mateilal that would fall within tho Russian definition of contraband. Tho stores were being shipped through the house of George W. Pea body of New York and the Orient, wh(. have telegraphed the war depnrtn'nl that the Philippine stores were aboard the Ardova and asked the de portment to exert Itself to securo thi'li releese. Tho application was taken at once by Acting Secretary Oliver to the ?tnte department, but. In view cf the subse quent release of the Ardova it Is Im probable that any action will be taken by the department. The ease of tho Knight Commander is regarded here as complicated and difficult of treatment, although a more complete statement of facts Is expect ed to simplify the problem. It 's np prehended that If the contention of the shipper's agents that the cargo contained no contraband Is corrept the general doctrine of "neutral flag cov ers neutral goods" has been violated by the destruction of the ship and enrgo.
