Russian Admiral Unable to Com
mand Squadron.
The Admiral'a Health Haa Been the
Cause ;f Considerable Anxiety at St
Petersburg and If Compelled ta Give
Up Command, Will Be Dangerous.
8t. Petersburg. May IT. Very dla-
quietlng reports are In circulation this
afternoon about Vice Admiral Rojeat-
venskyk's health. It is said that, he
haa telegraphed to the emperor that
It Is Impossible .for him to proceed.
An evening paper pr'ntea a report that
the admiral haa Buffered a nervous
breakdown. ,
No odrt! crnflnnnt'.on o' th report
f.wt Rojestvensky has requested to be
relieved from duty Is obtainable at the
admiralty. Nevertheless, the admiral's
health ha been, the cause of consid
erable anxiety here. It la well known
that he suffered from kidney trouble
before leavlnjt Cronstadt. and through
out 'he long voyage to the far east
he suffered at times to such, an ex
tent that he had to be carried about
on a stretcher. But the Russian com
mander stuck bravely to his post. If
he I now compelled on the eve of bat
tle to give up his command the ad
miralty would regret It aa little short
of a national misfortune. Rojestveniky
has proved to be a genius as an or
ganiser, and confidence Is felt that he
would enow equal ability as a fighter.
Should he be compelled to leave the
fleet, tha command will devolve on
Rear Admiral Volkersam, who Is now
with Rojestvensky.

the rear was the Btltlsh clipper ship
Valhalla, These two had been delayed
by a bad start ,
Leaden skies, low hanging mist-
laden clouda and moderate east wind
were the unfavorable conditions under
which the great trans-oceanic race
started and the three big square rig
ged vessels were handicapped at the
very start, for at beating to windward
in a light air their spreading course
and bulging topsails could not be com
pared with the hard fitting fore and
aft can,Vasa of . the, trim schooners.
Weather srophets declare that It Is
unlikely that the racers will be In

fulfilled, nothing but half a gjile. of

Valhalla from defeat. '
