On April is a flotilla of eight Torpedo boat deatroyers went out to Inspect he Islands, haying received ordera to at tack the enemy should he be encountered in i the course of the night Owing to darkness and a heavy rain three tl t2s destroyer became separated from Jhe flotilla, two of which returned to Port Arthur at dawn. The third, however, tha Besstrsshnl, having, according to the evi dence of the seamen, encountered several destroyers, took them, In the darkness, for Russian ships, and, giving them tha signal of recognition, joined them at dawn. It waa recognised by tha enemy and there was a right at oloBS quarters, Irt which Ita commander, mldahlpman and engineer, and fnoat of Ita ctew were killed. Mslelff, Its lieutenant, although wounded, continued firing on the enemy. 'At dawn on April 13, tha orulssr Bayan went out, preceded by destroyers, and hur ried to the rescue. About sltteen miles Yrom Port Arthur tha Bayan saw the de stroyer Besatrashnl engaged with four Japanese deatroyers. Shortly afterwards, an expioalon oecurrsd and tha Bisstrashni sank. '.Driving off tha enemy's destroyers by Its lira, the Bayan approached the scene of tha fight, lowered Its boata and had time to save tha remnant of the destroyer's craw. Unfortunately only Ave men were awlmmlng. Their lives were saved. . The cruiser' waa obliged to fight on Its starboard aide with alx Japanese cruisers which came up. Having picked up Ita boata, tha Bnyan regained the harbor, suf fering no damage or loss, although cor ared with fragments of Shells. ' Tha cruiser Diana and Ave destroyers hastened to Its auccor, and at the same time the other cruisers, the battleships petropavlovsk and Poltava and soma de atroyers came out from the roadstead and the battleships left the harbor In column formation, with the Bayan at tha head and the destroyers on tha flank.

In the roadstead they were rejoined by the battleehlpa Pobleda, Bvlet and Sevastopol, which' were coming out through the channel. The squadron was drawn up In the following order: Aekold, Bayan. Diana, Petropavlovsk, Pereavlet, Pobleda, Novla, five destroyers and two torpedo boata. They turned toward the left, but when approaching the mouth of the channel tha destroyers were algnaled to return to the harbor and the cruisers to proceed.

A thick column Of greenish yellow smoke waa soon to rise from the battleship; Its mast, funnel, bridge nl turret were thrown up and the battleship heeled over on Its starboard side.

The Poltava, which waa following the Petropavlovsk two cable lengths astern, stopped Its engines end remained on the scene of tha disaster. At a signal from Rear Admiral ouktom? ky the ether warships made for the harbor, maneuvering toward the Paresvlet In line. A mine exploded under the starboard side of the Pobleda. It listed, but proceeded and entered the harbor with all the other ships astern of It. The enemy remained In sight until I o'clock and then disap peared.

SELS PERIL" IN JAPANESE fla'uku Tr'.fa!eT SiysThr't Eaoceu Mann: Mongol Control of Alia. KILLS AMERICAN AND EUROPEAN TRADE Russia a Wedge In Mancharla Oaly Thing Which Separates the Two Great Mongol napes Which Japan Would Dominate. (Copyright, by New York Herald Co., 19f4.) NEW YORK, April 22-(New York Herald ScrvKc-Spiclul Telegram to The Bee.) That Japan's alleged reasons for go ing to war with Russia were mere pretexts, and that Its success would mean death to American and European commerce and In fluence In the east and a menace to west ern clvlhxatlon, Is the opinion of Baron Ernst Von Hese-Vartegg, a well known traveler and political writer, who arrrlvel today on the Qraf Waldcreee of the Hamburg-American line. Baron von Hessc-Wartegg Is regarded as an authority on matters In the far east, having traveled extensively In that part of the world and his book on the far eaatern questions haa been translated into several languages. He has been Invited to lecture on the subject before German societies hers and In Chicago. "Three main objects are placed by Japan In extenuation of Its action," aald Baron von Hease-Wartegg. "They may be summed up as the preser vation of the Integrity of China, the pol icy of tho open door and the cauta of clv lliratlon. They sound well, but examine them. "The Integrity of China and the Inci dental occupation o'f Corea mean nothing less than the political consolidation aa well aa the geographical union of three Mongol empires, which are now kept arart by the Russian wedge, Manchuria. The military, political and economical leoigan Izatton of China, under the benign Influ ence of Japan, would be forwarded by the collapse of Kuropean power and Influence In Mongol Asia. The yellow race would gain and try to maintain the ascendancy, and this would mean constant danger to white resldenta In that part of tha globe, the domination of paganism, the decline of European and American trade and the realisation of the much decried 'yellow peril.' Door Only Ooen tor Japan. "The so-called 'policy of the open door' means an open door for Japan only. The Japanese, aa all the world knows, are an Imitative race. The whole character of their modern civilisation Is Imitative. The imitate evei . .ilng from an ' Ajnerlcaa pickle to a Krupp gun. Perhaps they don't make them quite as well, but they do them more cheaply and, too, they can make a great deal more than they can use tor themselves. How long dues It tsks a load of goods to reach China from a Ger man or an English port, even from an American shipping point? It only takes a coupla of days to send a oargo from Japan to porta in Manchuria. Besides, the oost of the transportation and tha Insurance are very small. "In Manchuria Japaneaa goods would be dealt In by Japaneaa merchants, who are contented with cheap modes of living and email profits. They are kin in a race and morale to the native' Manohurisns and agree with them In their hatred Of the Eurofeana. "Russia opened up Manchuria with the Transslberian railway , at an expenditure of l.GCO.OOO.OOO rubles. True, It waa for Itself, but It was also for tha rest of Europe. Tha money was furnished hot by Russia, but by other countries. Russia la one of the best markets In the world. Japan Is one of the worst and one of tha moat dangerous competitors. It Is prac tically closed to foreigners, who may not own land, and the small 'trade they onca controlled Is passing out of their hands. "As to the cause of civilisation. Japan haa adopted our Institutions and haa given us nothing In return. They are heathen, and of their morals It Is best not to speak. It must be admitted that they are courage ous and patriotic to a degree, but these qualities are directed against Europeans, whom they despise. VRussla will be weakened by tha preaent war, no matter where victory rests. The Japanese will remain a constant menace to Russia in Asia, Victorious, It will be a constant menace to the whole white race In tha east." , TO START THREE ARMIES TO RIVICR Belief Qeaeral that Japanese Forward SEOUL, Cores, April l-(Vla Shanghai, April U.) The belief ia general hero that ho attempt will be made to cross the Talu river before tha end of this week, by whioh lima tha arrangements for a Concerted Japanese movement, a simultaneous rush toward tha river from thrao Oiatant points, will have been perfected. Tha second Japanese army ia supposed to have left Japan April It and it probably will attempt to land near Port Arthur, while other forces will try to laud on the Manchurian coast near Takuahan, - about fifty-five miles to the west, of the anouth of tha Talu, on tha Tatung Kao, about fifteen miles west of the river's moutli. Tart of the general advance will be to ward Lao Yang, and a division of guards, 10,vKW strong under Major General Inouye. will be the flrat troopa aent aalnet the Husslans at Chlu Tien Cheng, which Is op posite Wiju, on the Manchurian side of tho Yalu.. Major Oeneral Inouye won hia laurela in the tight at Cheng Ju on March U. . The auppllea now being landed at Chul san, near the mouth of the river, on Corean territory, can be forwarded easily to Wlju. not more than twenty miles away. Wlju Is to be the Japanese buse In northern Corta. The artillery and the cavalry constitute tha weak point In the Japanese army. The horsea are not well trained, nor are they strong, and, although tha Japanese cavalry behaved splendidly In recent skirmishes with superior numbers of Cosiacka, It la probable that when the first lot of trained horses la exhausted the employment of a second consignment of raw animals will hamper their movementa. The bowltsers which are now being em barked at Chlnnsmpo are evidently in tended for use In the movementa against Tort Arthur.
