heard a voice llko that addressed to

He stumped the state again and

.sinking of an armored .Japanese onus-
" in Tallenwan bay.
The Husslan attack was carefully
p'anned on May 10 wiiTle the Japanese
squadron was concentrated outside
Dalny devoting its whole attention
to Tallenwan bay and was carried out
the same right
The attacking force was not n reg
ular torpedo boat but was only a
small naptha launch in command ot
a young naval officer who had with
l ira three Jacklcs. The launch mount
ed a small machine gun and carried
When darkness fell the launch
tiept out of Port Arthur hugging the
shore with no lights aboard nnd no
glow from the engines to betray her
presence. It was lnte when she nln-
td tho outer line of the Japanese
squadron. Slipping through the tor-
pedo boat pickets and selecting the
nearest warship n big armored cruis
er she stole toward her and suc
ceeded In exploding against her side
B single torpedo. A deafening reiwrt
followed the explosion whica echoed
far ashore. Immediately dames en
veloped' the cruiser wnlch evidently
was badly crippled.
The crew of the cruiser was seen
to be fighting tne Are wulch they
at last succeeded in extinguishing. A
sister ship took the damaged vessel
In tow and disappeared to the south-
east. The lnich escaped the hot fire di
rected against her by the 'Japanese
ships but being unable to rot urn to
Port Arthur or to get Into Dalny she
v.aB beached near 'Dalny.
Only a few of the higher olllcors
were nware of the plan tho success
of which depended upen secrecy. The
achievement raUed the spirits of tho
Itusslans alloat and nshore nnd the
young naval ofllcer who was the heio
of the exploit was feted nnd recom-
mended for the cross of St. George.
The Itusslans on May 11 apprehend-
ing that t.Te presence of the Japanese
siiiindron meant an attempt to cap-
ture Dalny" blow up the piers and qui-
etly evacuated the place.
Two thousand Japanese have n
euplod tho road to Sanchllopo apaln
cutting off Port Arthur. A strong
