(As Indicated by Cable Dispatches to the United States Navy Department by Its Attaches in Japan.) The first detinito news from Russian sources of the naval battle fought in the Straits of Korea came from Capt. (Chagin of the cruiser Almaz. He tele graphed to the emtperor that he had witnessed the sinking of the battle ship Kniaz Souvtaroff and reported that. Admiral Rojestvensky was wounded. According to hi:< r(p:ort the Japa nose torpedo boats played the princi pal role in the defeat of the Russian fleet. They were sent in for action again and again under a perfect hail of shot from the RuI:sian rapid-firing guns. Togo Wins Position. When Togo's scouts reported that Admiral Rojestvensky was heading for Admiral Togo. the eastern channel of the Straits of Korea the Japaneset admiral steamed around the northern part of the Tui islands and ealtte Iupon the lRussians stearning in double column with :tie crIisers to port. Togo enjoyed ti he great a(lvantage t of tactical position when he oepeed tire, having the light est of the Russian ships ht ween him and Rojestvensky's heavier vessels thus smothering the tire of the latter. Besides. Togo was able to use all his broadsides, whereas the stcrnmost ships of the Russian columns. coming on in line ahead formation, prol)aliy only with difficulty could use any guns at all. Nevertheless, although suffering the comlplete loss of four ships in the des perate encounter which followed, and beilng subjected to a series of tor pedo attacks during the night of May 27, Rojestvetnsky was able to steam 200 miles during the night. When the next morning came the Russian fleet was divided into two divisions. The faster and stronger division. un der Rojestvensky, was met by Kami mura and (lriu, while the slower di vision, under Nebogatoff. renewed the fight with Togo. Each Ship for Herself. With some of the scattered Russian units it was a case of save himself who can. In the running fight the Japanese enjoyed the advantage of su perior speed, enabling them to concen trate their fire and bring every crip pled Russian ship to bay. Admiral Nebogatoff's battered remnant sur rendered off l.iancourt Rocks. while Rojestvensky, with the best remain ing bar tleships. fought on for the hon or of the Russian navy. Survivors of the great fight are be ginning to arrive in .Japan, clinging to wreckage or carried by the few boats which escaped from the battle. A disabled Russian crIuiser carrying 200 officers antid men approacihed Ha inmadi, which is on the mainland of Japan opposite the scene of t( l halt tIe. She flew a white flag. Ar soon as she was sighted a government Ihat was dispatched to escort her to shlore and offer the survivors a reiady wel come. Officials of the .Japanese lRbi C'ross society went. out in a launch. gave such aid as they could to the wound ded and carried them to tenmporary iquarts'rs near Y:amaguchi. which is at the; southwest of the Island of Nip p~n andt the nearest land to the hat lie. Waters Alive With Slavs. The waters were alive with Russian seamen desperately striv\ing io make land in small boats or clinging to masses of wreckage. Small nmrchant men and pleasure ships went out to pick up all the survivors they could intd. They rescued several hundred men. many wounded,. and all in a state of extreme exhaustion. The men were in despertate straits. The boats in which they so;ght rtef uge were adlly provisioned. in most_ cases not at all, so that to the terrors of heavy seas were added the pangs of hunger and thirst. The survivors state that they had absolutely no chance of winning. the attack of the .lapanese was so sud den, so overwhelming. The plan of attack was so different from that ex Ipected that the ('ntire fleet. became panic-stricken. 'l'he long-range fire of the enemy was deadly. There was no chance of repllying. Iecause the Japanese had chosen their own range,. which tao Russian ship could equal. Torpedoes Spread Terror. Then came a torpetlo boat alttac'k which completel, the demoralization. and the crews toolk t to te b:oats in most eases beftre the tolrp01do)s had gone home. Those , ho lreuained on board were prteciliit ated into the wat;er by the ox I losions that followed. and many .~\'lsd themselves by clinging to pieces ,.-, wrecl,age. There are entdless accounts of in dividutal heroism, but none more thrill I ing than that of a young sailor who gave upl his place on a piece of plank in order to save the life of a lieuten ant of the Alexander ll. who had been a popular officer with the crew and who was Ill at the time of the attack. The captain of the cruiser Admiral Nakhimhoff and another officer had been swiimming about in an exhaust Ii ed condition for many hours when ithey were rescued by some Shimono selki fishermen. Fifty-five Russian sailors, some of them wounded, were pickedt up off Mi shima. Twenty-three of the crew of the Aurora were landed, and ten ref I .ees were rescued( in the same vicin ity. Veteran Many Years Missing. Mrs. David Kizer of Springfield, Ohio, has been granted a pension of $8 a month, but she will not begin to draw it until twelve years from date. This ruling is Aae to the fact that she drew a penmn for twelve years on the presumption that her hus band, David Kizer, was dead. He re cently died after being brought home sick from Denver. He had been mourned as dead for twenty-seven years, most of which time he was in the Black hills, searching for gold. Harsh Criticism of Senators. Senator Dubois was lamenting the decay of oratory among American statesmen. "With only a few excep tions," he said, "we have in Washing ton no orators worthy of the name. On this account I had to accept in si lence during the last session an acrid crilicism from a clever woman. 'I at tended a meeting of the senate the other day,' she said, 'and that night I had. a terrible dream.' 'What did you dream?' said I. The lady smiled. '1 dieamed,' she said, "i went again.'
