SKIRMISH OF FLEETS IS DUE THIS DAY SO BRITISH NAVAL EXPERT FIGURES IT OUT Odds Against Togo Are Greater Than Those Against Nelson at Trafalgar, but the Russians Cannot Surprise Delirious Rumor.Has Baltic Squadron Sink Two British Cruisers Which It Mistakes for Japanese Special Cable to The Globe LONDON. April 15.—"Skirmishing between the fast vessels of the Jap anese and Russian fleets should begin tonight or tomorrow," the noted Brit ish naval expert, H. W. Wilson, says, 'although a pitched battle may not be fought for a week or ten days. The Japanese have the Russian fleet posi tively located. All Rojestvensky's movements - have been carefully watched by special agents of the Jap anese navy. Because of this the Rus sians cannot surprise Togo's fleet. "The odds against Togo are greater than those against Nelson at Trafal gar. The Russians are superior in numbers of heavy fighting ships, and the advantage of having them is as treat today as it was when Nelson said it." Last Cord Is Severed ST. PETERSBURG, April 15.—With the departure of the hospital ship Orel from Saigon the last cord connecting the Baltic squadron with St. Peters burg was severed, and the admiralty expects no further direct news until a battle has been fought and deter mined. "Henceforth," said a prominent naval officer, "the press will probably, be our only source of information. Rojestvensky's next message may not be written until he has met the en emy." Imagination Takes Flight Under -the circumstances many ru mors take shape in St. Petersburg aside from those relating to encounters with the Japanese, but perhaps the most, fanciful is one that the Baltic squadron met and engaged two British cruisers under the. Impression that they were Japanese, and sank them. Russian Fleet Located PARIS. April 16.—The correspond ent of the Petit Journal at Halfong.

Wis.. April 15.— seph Rice, a farmer living in obscurity on a small piece of land near this city, has discovered that he Is a brother of the late William Rice, the New York millionaire who was murdered, and that he is the rightful heir to at least four million dollars. He , believes he can prove this to the satisfaction of all concerned and has taken legal steps to establish his claim. MILWAUKEE, Wis., April 15.— The claim of the Menomonie Rice to a share in the estate of William Marsh Rice is the second time that the mur der of the millionaire has had a Wis consin connection. At the time of the murder it was recalled that -Mrs. Rice died in Waukesha under peculiar cir cumstances and was buried at Forest Home cemetery, while her husband was sick in New York. Mrs. Rice was brought from Texas, the Rice home, to Waukesha to avoid the summer heat of the southern state. The change of climate did not serve to save her life, however, and she died July 24, 1896. Before her death her husband had gone to New York, overcome by the weari ness of his long care for his sick wife. The shock of her death prostrated him and he never recovered sufficiently to be able to come west again. The will of Mrs. Rice left $3,500,000. half of her husband's fortune, to her Texas relatives, the Texas law permit ting a wife to 'bequeath by will half of her husband's fortune. Rice, however, contested., the will, claiming that his actual residence was New York. After his death a will was filed In which he left practically all his property, valued at from $4,000,000 to $10,000,000 to found a charitable institution at Hous ton, Tex. " The will made provision for a brother, Frederick A. Rice, residence not stated, and for two sisters, Minerva Olds of Massachusetts and Charlotte S. McKee of New York. The brother by this will received ,$30,000. in addi tion .to a life Income on some of the Rice property. READ THE GLOBE THE ONLY LIVE NEWSPAPER IN Pages 27 to -4-2 PRICE FIVE CENTS ST. PETERSBURG, April 15.—The week closes with the government's at tention fixed on Vice Admiral Rojest vensky and something like genuine enthusiasm has been aroused by the Russian admiral's daring in sailing straight for a combat with the Jap anese. There are many naval officers who do not believe Vice Admiral Togo will accept the challenge. In their opinion the Japanese will be too prudent in such a crisis to risk the destruction of their fleet. They believe that Togo's tactics will be to avoid an open sea fight, and that'he will launch a series of desperate night torpedo attacks, in the hope of throwing the Russian fleet into confusion, scattering the line of ships and giving his faster battleships and cruisers an opportunity to sur round and destroy them individually, and if some of Rojestvensky's ships escape to Vladivostok to bottle them up there. For the ; moment the conservative counsels of the peace party, which party realizes that the military situa tion will be utterly hopeless if Ro jestvensky's fleet is completely de stroyed and considers it best to open negotiations before the Issue is put to a test, are rudely thrust aside. The admiralty clamors for a chance to retrieve its reputation, and the war party generally seems to be convinced that Russia's position w 111 not be worse if the. battle is lost, while the destruction of Togo's fleet would spell ruin for Japan. The emperor himself, if is understood, expresses great con fidence in victory, and should victory come he will undoubtedly affix the im perial seal to the big naval programme provided by the admiralty.
