I THE LANDING THAT FAILED. I Story of German Venture in the Baltic. I Petrograd, Tuesday.—The Bourse Gazette to-night, on the authority of a Lettish customs official, who has just come to Petrograd, gives an account of a Ger- man attempt to effect a landing at Pernau. According to his etory the attempt was made not opposite Pernau, but about three miles south of the port. Fifteen German vessels., including transports and torpedo boats halted within gunshot range, and then re-formed in an almost straight line in the direction of the inland of Osel, when the torpedo boats opened fire from the starboard side. This, however, soon ceased, and land- ing preparations began. The transports, convoyed by torpedo-boats, approached the shore and lowered, their longboats, into which marines swarmed down ropo ladders. The Russian reservists concealed in the sand dunes and trenches waited till the longboats were well within range, and then f uddenly opened a withering fire with rifles, machine-guns, and guns of small calibre. The fire of the transports failed to inflict the slightest damage on Russian defenders, and after the destruction of the longboats the German voeoels de- pa-rted in the direction of Domesnas. Amsterdam, Tuesday.—A semi-official telegram from Berlin declares that the Petrograd report of a big naval engage- ment in the Baltic, and of big naval losses, is completely untrue. It says that neither a large ship nor a cruiser was 6unk or damaged, and repeats the Ger- man official report issued by the Ad- miralty staff on August 21st. The telegram further denies that the Germans attempted any landing near Pernau, and continues: "the torpedo- boats which appeared in the district had orders to cover the blockade of the port. The artillery combat which developed with the port and land batteries resulted in ,the silencing of the port battery. Rotterdam, Tuesday.—No German paper published on Monday has the slightest reference to the great naval victory by the Russians in the Gulf of Riga. The only report published is that from Petrograd, of August 22, in which the Russians re- ported that they had lost one torpedo-boat but that the Germans had lost at least two torpedo-boats, while a cruiser has been torpedoed by a British submarine. It is significant that they publish this report of their own losses without a word of comment or denial.
