RUSSIANS SEEKING TOGO.
Baltic Meet Joined by Third Squadron
of Fivo Battleships.
Paris, April 21. If tho French nil
thorltles are to bo believed, news of
momentous import may be expected
from tho Far Fast very soon, as, ac
cording to Foreign Minister Delcasso,
the Russian fleet under tho command
of Vlco Admiral Kojestvensky sailed
early on Thursday from Knmranh bay.
Its destination is unknown, but it is
believed hero that It will now sail to
endeavor to locate tho Japanese fleet
and givo battlo.
Naval experts hero believo that tho
third Pacific squadron of tho Itusslan
navy, which is commanded by Admiral
Nobogatoff, has joined Kojestvensky,
and that the latter now has eight first
class battleships, three second-claBS
battleships, three armored cruisers and
a number of other vessels of not quito
bo good n type. Ho is also believed to
have received large quantities of am
munition which had been shipped to
him some time ago, to have filled tho
coal bunkers tit his ships, and generally
to have placed his command in condi
tion to givo a good account of itself.
It Is believed here that Admiral Jon-
quleres, who Is in command of tho
rrench navr.l force In tho waters of
French Cochin China, nurecd to get a
mcBBitgo to the Russian commander to
day, and that the departure of tho Rus
sians followed. Such action has been
expected, as the French authorities
consider that tho protest of Japan
against Russia's using neutral waters
to recoal and refill depleted ammuni
tion magazines was well founded, and,
if Rupsia has been asked to move by
tho French commander in tho Far Fast,
a difficult situation has been cleared up.
