ed London Monday afternoon and af- \
tor gathering tho latest details known
at the foreign office regarding tho firtag
on the Pritish fishing boats by j
ttoo Russian sqifbdron, proceeded to I
Buckingham palace, whore he had a
lengthy interview with King Edward.
The lattor telographed a mesage of

After the conference. Lord Lansdowne
addressed a strong protest to
Ambasador Hardlnge for presentation I
to tlie Russian government. Special
st-fess is laid on tho callousness dis- J
ylflyed by the Russians in not going to
f.he assistance of tho flshormon. Lord
Lansdowno asks that immediate redress
shall bo made.
It Is believed In government circles
that the Russian government will take
the earliest opportunity to give satisfaction,
and it appears to bo expected
that Russia will explain the affair,
adding that the Russian officers bad
roason to believe that there were
mines, or ships with mines, in the
neighborhood where the fishing fleet
was attacked.

which followed almost into the embassy.
Fortunately for the issue of peace
or war. nothing resulted; yet through
out Monday night a special force of
police was compelled to guard the
Russian embassy.
Count Hcnckondorff has been always
regarded in London oillclal circlos
as a friend of peace, and lie was
much opposed as was Count Lamsdorff,
to the Russian-Japanese war.
Indeed, he is almost an Anglophile in
sentiment. There Is no doubt that
Count Henckondorff's feelings wore
nuuiiuoi ii) .iiuiiuay infill. S U?'monatration.
A St. Petersburg special says: At
the foreign office the sinking of the
British fishing vessels was deplored.
Tho authorities oxpressed the hope
that the unfortunate aft'alr will bo adjusted

Corroborated by Fishing
Fleet Captain. j ]
An Associated Press dispatch from
St. Petersburg, under Thursday's date, ,
says: Vico Admiral Itojestvensky's
explanation of tlio trawler Incident Is ]
fully as sensational as the news of tho '
firing on the fishing floet which sit!
all England aflame.
Ho declares ho was attacked In the j
darkness by two torpedo boats, which
came upon the squadron from tho dl |
roetion of the fishins (loot. Mo opou* j
od lire and beliovea ho sank ono of t i
tho torpedo boats, tho other making >

As soon as he noticed the fishermen !
Admiral Rojestvonsky ceased firing. ' (
no proceeueu on ms way without | i
leaving any vessel behind, and says j '
ho bollevoB the vessel which the llsh- ! 1

Rojestvensky's report was telographed
from Vigo, Spain, direct n
Emperor Nicholas, who received it
Wednesday night. It was communicated
Thursday morning to Ambassador

to believe that tho British embassy
was aieo acquainted with Information
which roacaon uie uussinn aumoriu'is (
some timo ago of the arrival at. a-\ i
subsequent, mysterious disappearance J

of which was made in dispatches < {

Statement Corroborated.
According to one account, of Rojest- ,
vensky's report it specifically stat 13 [ '
that there were no torpedo boats with 1
tho squadron v.-hen the incident o* 1
currcd. If this is true the statement ,
of the captain of tho Moulmoin would ] 1
completely corroborate Hojestvensky. j |
in vio-.v or '.'in entsr* nc!y,- complt-c- |

ablo (hat Russia may make represeu- !
tntions to Great Britain and that tho;
whole course of exchanges hotweon j |
the two governments regarding the affair
may ho altered.

If it is conclusively proved that a j
I couple of Japanese torpedo boa'.s ,
j launched an attack on the Russian
I squadron from tlio English shores or

Ruosian Ruler Deplores Astounding
Blunder Perpetrated By Baltic
Fleot?Report Awaited.
A St. Petersburg dispatch sny?:
Vice Admiral Itojostvensky's reason
for firing into the British fishing (leet
remains as great a mystery as ever.
Meanwhile, without waiting for the
Russian version of the affair, Rmpert>r
Nicholas, through Amhasador HardInge,
has sent to King Edward an-1
l!jo British government a mcssago oxpressing
tho profoundest regret for
the unfortunate affair coupled wi'h
insurances that the families of tne
victims should receive the fullest rc
pa ps. 11011.
The British government also shows
moderation in the note which Sir
CharloB Hardingo presented to K ?vaign
Minister Lamsl. orff Tuesday afternoon.
While it awaits explanation
for an act which It characterizes in
strong language as unjustifiable, unlust

fically stating that Great Britain's demands
are reserved pending receipt of
mi explanation.
The willingness of Groat Britain to
uvait the Russian explanation hefo-e
formulating demands shows consideration
for the situation in which Russia
litis been placed by a deplorable
blunder. At the same time this consideration
has an ominous ring about
it, only serving to emphasize the gravity
of the situation.
What the nature of the demands
tvlll be must necessarily be a matter
if speculation until Admiral Rojostvensky's
report arrives, but if the important.
allegation in tbo note is established,
namely that the Baltic squadron
actually changed formation beforo
[Ire. it would seem to fix the responsibility
upon Rojestvenskv; and whoever
the author of the offense may be,
it is regarded as certain that Great
Rrit.nin will demand, anion# oth'>r
hings, his punishment. It is also coitidcrod
certain that failure to promptly
comply with tho demands will bo
mmediately followed by Ambassador
Hardinge's recall.
Although some nervousness ia perceptible
in diplomatic circles, generally
speaking, there is the greatest con
Vlence both among diplomats and high
officials of tho Kovorument. that the
affair will be amicably adjusted.
