San Francisco, be taken Into custody ly the naval au thorities of the United Stales and disarmed. The main feature of the rendil Ions prescribed are that the Lr na be taken to the Mare Island navy yard ami there disarmed by the removal of small guns, breech blocks of large Rims, small arms, ammuni tion, and ordnance stores and such otbT dismantlement as may be pre scribed bv ho commandant of tt:e navy yards. 1hal the captain be, given a written guarantee that the Lena pha.;i not leave San Francisco until prn-e shall have been concluded: that the ofneers and crew shall be paroled and not to leave San Fran cisco until some understanding as to their disposal may be reached be tween the TTnltod States government aid both tbe belligerents: that arter disarmament the vessel may be re moved to n private dock for such rea sonable ronairs as "will make her sea worthy and preserve her In good con dition during her detention, mnv be so repaired nt the navy yard, if the Pussfan commander should so elect; that while at a private dock the com mandant of the navv yard at Mare Is land shall have custody of the ship and the repairs shall be overseen by an. engineer officer to be detailed by tlio commandant and that when so repaired, if neace shall not then have been concluded, the vessel shall be fken lack to the Mare Island noy yard and be there held in custody lint 11 the end of the war." This action has been taken on tne written rcnuest of the commander ad ,i revert to Rear Admiral Goodrich and to Capt. MeCalla. the comman dant at Mare Island, navy yard, to carry out its provisions. Arrangement Temporary. The main question regarding the Russian transport Lena having boon settled, officers of the administration and of the two belligerent govern ments will now devote themselves to reaching an understanding regarding the' officers and crew of the vessel. As Indicated in the statement made bv the state department, the present arrangement is but a temporary om. designed to meet the question as P immediately presents itself. It is nor 1 likelv that the officers and crew wii be allowed again to participate In th" war unless the government of Japan should waive its prerogatives in that regard, which is not thought, to be at nil probable. An arrangement will be effected wherebr the en either will be nerm'tte,! to return to Russia, rr be detained In the United States, m the transnort is, nnttl the c'ose of .hostilities, at the expense of the Rus plan government. Presumably some members of the crew will rem'" in chnrce of the vpsset. n care-takers, n privilege to which the Cnitct States or .Tnnsn Is not likely to rai'e any objection. Rusia I Satisfied.

CLAIMS JAPANESE PROTECTORATE Kamchatka Remains Loyal to Russia, and Has Taken Up Arms to Pre serve Relations to Czar and the Fatherland. St. Polersbuprg, Sept. 15. Tho em peror has received the following: f''in Viceroy AJexloff: A dispatch from Yakutsk, cnstcrn Siberia, dated August i:i, says tbe Kommander Islands, off the coast of Kamcbarska has been besieged b.V Japanese ami Ilritisli schooner nnd n steamer up lo July 2K. Two of these schooners ami tlio steamer were armed with guns. In driving them oit off ten Japanese wore killed anil many wounded. We sustained no loss. Near Kamcliatska five Japanese fishing schooners have been burned. Their crews were annihilated. The Japnnese announced the annex ation of the territory, ami proclaimed It. a Japanese protectorate. They were subsequently captured by 120 Russian reserves . Kamchatka remains true to her old traditions. The inhabitants have ta ken up their arms and are ready to shed their blood for their faith, their mr nnd their fatherland. Tfie Kommander Islands are tha islands for who.-e protection against these very expeditions arrangements were made by Htissla with Great Hritaln and the United States. It. Is not supposed that, tho alTalr will lead to a diplomatic incident. An ofliclal report has nlso been received of tho landing of a Japanese force of lfiO naval reserve men on the west coarft of Kamchatka, who declared the sov ereignty of Japan over the peninsula, but were afterward defeated by a Rus sian force, as announced in the Asso ciated Press dispatches yesterday. The official report agrees with the details contained in these dispatches. Is Somewhat Vague. The reference of Viceroy Alexleff to the view taken bv General Stoessel of these proclamations U somewhat vague, but it would seem that he does not refer to the proclamations of a Japanese protectorate over the Kam chatka peninsula, and aparently ovrr Ihe Kommander islands, but to the proclamation issued by the Japanese to the Russians nt Port Arthur, de manding the surrender. ti ill VIADUCT ACROSS ST.

There has been no renewal of fighting since the retreat of tho Rus sian army under Gen. Kuroputkln to Mukden.

The Russo-Chlneso bank has reopened. The falluro of the Japanese to fol low up th advantage gained at Lino Yang has caused surprise here. An Independent, authority who accom panied the rear guard from the po sitions south of Llao Yang to Muk len says that Ill's failure Is accounted for by the fact that the Japanese lost 40 000 killed or wounded on ono day's fighting and that besides they were too tired to continue the advance.
