DIFFERENT VERSIONS OF THE CAUSE OF I RUSSIA'S DISASTER. I There seems to be something so demora- lising in war that people cannot even write about it without departing from the truth, or presenting an incident in a certain light, because they think the public for whom they cater would like to have it put in that way. We see an example of this partisan- ship in the news of the disaster to the Russian fleet, which caused the death of Admiral Makaroff. According to the tele- grams from Tokio, and other places where there are British correspondents, the battle- ship was sunk by the Japanese, whereas in some at least of the messages from St. Petersburg, the disaster was attributed to the vessel striking accidentally a mine which had been laid by the Russians them- selves. The special correspondent of the Parisian Temps stated, for instance, that (i two causes are assigned for the disaster, viz, a submerged Russian torpedo-mine in the harbour, or an explosion on board the Petropavlovsk itself." This anxiety to attribute the occurrence to an accident, which has been displayed in connection with other mishaps to the Russian fleet, is a little difficult to understand. It is surely as honorable a fate to be killed by the enemy as to perish through one of a suc- cession of blunders which ought not to?have occurred, and probably did not occur. I
