Toklo, July IO.Ww of th emptor
or deatructlon of th Rhasian Vladi
vostok squadron, that has been doing so
much damage to chipping off the coast
Of Japan, la momentarily, expected here,
'. At an aarly hour this morning the
Russians war sighted off the laland of
Idsu. at tha entrance of Toklo bay. That
the Japanei offloer were aware of the
.presence of the squadron' was ahown
but a ahort time after, when tour Jap
anese warahlpa were Been chasing the
Ruaslana to the southward.- both
squadrons working at full speed under
' forced draft. - ' '
The vessels were then about 14 miles
distant from the observation point
Three other Japanese warships are
' known to be within 40 miles of Oshlma
and all vessels of the Japanea fleet ars
now equipped with wireless telegraphy,
henc n will be difficult for tha Rus
sians to escape. .. '
- This afternoon' dispatch from the
lookout station stated that the Russian
'squadron had again been seen east of the
entrance to Tsuglru, having evidently
evaded Its pursuers whs were nowhere
In sight. -'
At the hour reported tha Russians
" were evidently working to the northward
rain ranldlv as noaslbls. This leads
v to the belief thst they are aware of the
attempts to overhaul them, and realis
ing that they would be outnumbered are
again seeking to make the open sea. i
Confidence Is still maintained
that the Japanese warships will within
- a short time overtake end give battle to
the fugitive vessels. Owing to the slt-
. nation of the Japanese vessels It la not
believed possible that tha Russians can
. elude them for any great length of time.
Every observation point within reach
waa notified at one to keep an excep
tional watch for tha Russians and this
, alertness resulted In a report being re
ceived from Tsuglru straits at 1 o'clock
In the afternoon that tha squadron at
that hour bad entered the. straits and
was proceeding westward, with smoke
. pouring In masses from Its funnels.

. Four burglarlea, each fraught with
sensational features, were perpetrated
early -this- morning. Two were In ho
tels snd two In ' resldenoes. The net
proceeds to th criminals for sll of
their hard work, - which Included "gun
plays." Startling outbursts of language,
daring entrances snd hair-raising es
capes, amounted to 13. - For four hours
ths headquartera patrol wagon, in charge
of Policemen LiRla and Price, diished
about the city in response to calls from
thoss mads victims of the night prowl
ers, but in each Instance the officers
were ,a trifle too lata in arriving to
effect a capture. ,
At 1:30 a. m. Mrs.' W, Johnson snd
daughter, residing on tha. ground floor
at i&t North- (Sixteenth -street, were
awakened by the lighting of a match
almost directly ever their heads. Badly
frightened, but thinking perhaps It was
Mr. or Mrs.. Donnelly, who live, up
stairs. Mrs. Johnson cried out: '
"Who are, you, and what do you
wantT" '.
-I want a drink of water." replied th
man, whoss vole told th woman he
wss a stranger.
, But he did not remain to receive the
drink and beat a hasty retrest out the
rear door. Miss Lena Johnson quickly
called to Mr.. Donnelly, who eame down
and made an 'investigation. It wss
found tho burglsr bad effected entrance
by1 removing the screen from a 'kitchen
window. , He left the screen on th
Mrs. Johnson's Story.
Th burglafevldently . was"UemTti
Ing ' to open ths sliding door between
our bedroom and the dining room when
he found It was tied by a ribbon." said
MraJohnaon thls.mornlng"tfetng un-
sbls to understsnd what waa holding it,
he Struck the match. " We then awoke.
He wss stsndlng with tha match In
his hsnd investigating why tha door
would not allde." .
Immediately after ths burglsry,. po
lice headquartera were notified snd the
patrol wagon dispatched, but sll wss
quiet when ths policemen got there. '
It was S o'clock this morning that a
burglar who gained entrance into the
residence of W. O. Ashbcy. manager of
th O. R. A- K. telegraph offices, 3C1
Wetdler street, -startled Mr.-and-Mrn.
Ashbey out of their sleep by knocking s
pail of milk from a kltchsn shelf. He
purposed going through ths house
quietly, and began well, refusing to even
tear, off ths mosquito bar that -was
tacked to the window for a screen. ' In
stead, h - touched a match to It . and
.burned It oft.
Flonlakea a volva.
After being swskened by the crashing
of th milk pail to th floor, Mr. Ash
bey and wlfs heard footsteps down
stslrs. Ths burglsr then began ascend
ing the stairs snd at last took up a
position at the entrsnc to Mr. snd
Mrs. Ashbey's bedroom. He wss being
..trhod all of this time by Mr. Ashbey.
snd at this point the lstter wslked ouH
snd paat the burglar, as u n" "
nothing of th criminal' presence.
The burglar waa standing in the door
way, holding a long revolver, and It is
ths belief of Mr. ashbey that It ha had
attacked the night prowler he would
have been shot. Ths bufglar soon went
down stairs and out on, th sidewalk. ,
Laird Ashbey, a lad of U xers.
leaned out of a front window and told
the burglar he had best leave.
"Pull your head In mighty- quick, or
I'll shooHt-off.'waa th startling reply
sent up by the burglar, and hs flour
ished his weapon to snforce his order.
The boy obeyed. -
A second burglar, working with the
first, then climbed through th same
window entered by hla partner, pre
sumably not being aware tf ths events
thst had Just transpired. But wlwn
he lesrned JioW matters stood, he dsshed
out the front door, joined his compsnlon
snd together they sped away through
the darkness. The headquartera patrol
responded to 'the summons, but again
the trip waa barren of results. .

quick reply, and. at the earns time the
