I Is said that after the acton corn- lenced the Chinese were unable to mnJe signals on account of the shooting away oC halyurds , etc" , uli ( therefore no tactical ova- lutons were performed by them , each vessel maneuvering indepeiitiently. 'fhe Japanese , however , slgnnlelJ throughout the acton antI maneuvered In concert. The Japanese opened fire at 3,000 yards , using their rnpl.l.nre guns I to great advantage , anti Ieeplnr up a rapid fire. The nro of the Chinese throughout the action was much slower all their shootfr Inr hIgh. The Japanese fire directed against the two battleships Is said 10 have beer : terrific , the Chcn-Yuen being hit about 400 b limes alI catching lire several times , whlo the Tlng.Yuen was badly set on fire for- , yard. The fire was extinguished with diAl - culty. The Chen- Yuen gallantly placed her self between the Japanese vessels and the t Tlng-Yuen , taking the fro of the fleet , whie her flagship extinguished the flames. The : main Japanese squadron continued the action wlh the battleships , but although their ire jectes hit time nli again the fourteen-Inch i armor was more than n match for the Japan ese lght grniH. The loss consisted or tel I officers and sixty men killed and GOO or ni I ranks injuretE the 1atshumn , Hyeo ant 1 Almgl sustaining the most severe damages The Chinese loss consisted of the folowing named vessels : Sunk or destroyed : Ln Yuen , - bolted cruiser of 2,800 tons : Chili ( or Chin ) _ ) Yuen , n protected cruiser or 2,300 tons : Yang 'Vel , protected cruiser oC 1.300 tons , and I Chao-Yuen , her sister ,8hlp , The Plug-Yuen , Chen-Yucn and Tlng-Yuen suffered much ; from fire.
