The survivors from the Variag and

the Russians be surrendered as pris
oners of war. The captain of tho
Talbot, being the senior naval officer,
each time replied that he was awaiting

JAPAN DEEPLY STIRRED
The Zensho Maru Incident Is Called
a Wanton Crime.
Tokio, Feb. 15. Japan is deeply
stirred and bitterly resentful over the
sinking of the merchant vessel Zensho
Maru by four Russian cruisers which
attacked the Zensho Maru and her
companion the Naganoura Maru while
on their way from Hakodate to
Otaru, on the island Hakkaido. The
attack of the Russians is declared to
be a wanton crime, unjustified under
any circumstances, even assuming
that the Zensho Maru disregarded sig
nals, which is denied.
The foreign office has issued the fol
lowing statement regarding the sink
ing of the Zensho Maru: "Two Jap
anese merchant vessels, the Zensho
Maru and the Naganoura Maru, ton
nage 170 and 700 respectively, while
sailing from Hakata for Otaru, were
suddenly attacked by four Russian
cruisers from Vladivostock on Feb. 11,
while ten miles off Jensangtsi. Fire
was opened without any 'order being
given the vessels to surrender. The
Naganoura succeeded in escaping.
The other vessel was surrounded by
the cruisers and sunk. All on board
were either killed or drowned."
It is said the Japanese government
is planning reprisals. Several Russian
ships which have been detained in or
der to prevent reports of the move
ments of the Japanese from reaching
the enemy will now, it is said, be sent
to the prize courts, and in all probabil
ity will be confiscated.
The presence of the Russian squad
rons in northern Japanese waters cen
ters all interest there. The country is
Isolated and it is difficult to obtain sat
isfactory reports from there.
A variety of rumors stir Tokio. One
says Matsuma has been bombarded;
another that the Japanese cruisers
have engaged the Russians. The gov
ernment has not confirmed anything
ercept the Zensho Maru incident. It
is. doubted that Matsuma has been
bombarded, as it is undefended. It is
regarded as probable that the Russian
fleet returned to Vladivostock after
completing a movement planned to di
vert the Japanese.
The Japanese war ship Amain has
captured the German steamer Yoko
hama which had a cargo including dy
namite for Pore Arthur.
