<i CARDIFF VESSEL SHADOWED. SS. Kirkwall's Guns." RUSSIAN SUSPICION RIDICULED. It now transpires that the British steamer at Vigo suspected of having guns concealed in her i bunkers, andmisreported as the Kiskralles, is the j ss. Kirkwall, belonging to Messrs Arthur Maw- son and Co., of Cardiff. On August 16tb last the Kirkwall, in com- mand of Captain Keaketh, left Cardiff with a cargo of Powell-Duffryn coal, loaded by Measra Hull, Blyth, and Co., for Constantinople, bat on August 22nd she put into Vigo with her low pressure-engine badly damaged. Itwillberemembereitbat just at that time the converted liner Don, then employed in the Bay of Biscay with other Russian cruisers searching for British ships carrying contraband of war, also called at Vigo for bankers, and a dramatic significance was attached to the pur- pose of the cruiser when she suddenly left the port without waiting for her bill of health. The commander, it seems, received a telegram from the Russian Government, which it was pre- sumed contained specific instructions in regard to a particular British vessel supposed tojhave guna hidden on board, and suspicion fixed on the Kirk- wall. The collier is in dock undergoing repairs, and on Sunday Renter's Agency reported that the Don is still waiting for her off Cies Island. The Russian cuscicion that the Kirkwall is secretly carrying guns or any other form of contraband is ridiculed by the owners. On. Monday, on calling at their offices in the Car- diff Exchange, our representative was informed that there was not the slightest foundation for. it, and that immediately the repairs were com- pleted the vessel would procee:t on her voyage to Constantinople. It is not definitely known when she will leave, but our representative was informed that she would certainly do so daring the present month. A Lloyd's Lisbon message, dated Sept. 5th, states that the Russian steamer Terek (Volun- teer fleet) arrived on Sunday.
