After deliberation of tho highest
authority of the land a decision was
reached that It was useless to hold
Port Artlurf except for the value of
tho warships there. Accordingly an
Imperial order was given to the Ask-
old by Admiral Wlthoeft. with his dy

and not on any account to return. This
accomplished and Russia's honor hav

useless loss of life.
The humnne Intention was frustrat
