li t; Secretary of State Ailoo today
Vavc out (ho following statement re
f.iirdlni; lic Russian ship Lena now

lias today Issued an order througn
the acting sorri'tary of state, direct
ing that the Russian armed trans
port Lenn. now at. 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.
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

M9N m uo paqseius ja
New York, Sept. 1. A number ot
lives were lost, much property dam
aged and several ships were wrecked
In a storm which swept up the At
lantic coast last night and today.
It was one of the fiercest September
storms on record, thunder aud light
ning adding terrors to a howlin;?
gale, which hurled drenching sheets
of rain over sea and land. Tonight
the telegraphic reports say that the
storm has swept out into the ocean.
The greatest loss of life was near
Wilmington, Delaware. The tug
Israel W. Durham, with n crew of six
men, and lour other men, employes of
the American Dredging company, was
swamped In the Delaware river early
today, during the height of the storm.
Eight out of the ten persons on the
little craft, were drowned.
From further down the coast, at
Jacksonville, comes the report that
tlve men were drowned off Charles
ton. . i,
The Slow Off New York.
New York suffered comparatively
little. The wind, rain, thunder and
lightning were ,terrilic, but little ac
tual damage was done. Nineteen
coal barges went adrift in the bay,
and tonight their wreckage strews
the shore, from the Battery to the
Narrows, but. no lives were lost. Sev
eral small vessels also went ashore
on various parts of the coast near
New York. One fatality was report
ed in this city, when a piece of cast
iron fire escape was blown from a
building and struck Carl Hertzner,
killing him instantly.
A fishing steamboat, Joseph Chnrci
of Greensport, New York, struck on
Peak's Hill bar today and was
smashed to pieces. The captain and
a crew of twenty-one were saved.
Bad News from Delaware.
From Wilmington. Delaware, comes
the news that great destruction was
caused bv the storm. Trees were up
rooted, houses flooded, and crops
ruined. In Chesapeake hay the storm
was particularly fierce. Incoming
steamers arriving at Baltimore re
port that never in their experience
has such a furious gale swept down
on them at this time of the year.
One man was seen adrift in a small
boat in Chesapeake bay. but it wa
imnofsible to rescue him.
The storm was accompanied by a
cold wave. .

this evening by an escaped prisoner.
Crosby, from th Salem, Ark., Jail and
tho town is in an uproar of excite

Sheriff Morgan learned that the

him on Main street. When he placed
ihe fugitive under arrest, Crosby
said: "All right," and pretended to
submit, but suddenly dashej down
his grip and in an instant had shot
Sheriff Morgan in the heart. Sheriff
Morgan was shot once as ho fell.
Many people being on the slreet.
niirsuit was instantly taken up. The
fugitive took refuge in a large barn

Hundreds of frenzied citizens almost
fought with each other, some to lynch

the trip to the jail was almost a not.
The mob lacked a leader or the man

St. Polersbuprg, Sept. 15. Tho em
peror has received the following: f''in
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.
