THE WAR ADMIRAL TOGO'S BASE. IMPERIAL PROCLAMATION. An Imperial Ordinance has been issued in Tokio declaring that a state of siege exists at Mako Har- bour, in the Pescadores Islands. A naval proclamation further creates a Naval Court at Mako. The Tokio Navy Department pronounces the reports of a naval engagement with the Russians off Saigon to be unfounded. According to information received by the Naval General Staff at St. Petersburg a report which reached New York from Manila that the hospital ship Orel had arrived at Saigon with a large number of wounded is incorrect. It is true that the Orel has arrived at Saigon, but she had no wounded on board. The hospital ship Orel remained at Saigon for 36 hours. She shipped 900 tons of coal, as well as food and medical supplies. One of the doctors on board states that the objective of the fleet is Vladivostok. The Russian fleet is reported to be continuing its voyage northwards. Admiral de Jonquieres is at Cape St. Jacques. A message from the Hague says: "Neither from the East Indian Governments nor by the Japanese Legation here has any news been received of a naval fight off the Anamha Islands. lprom official news received previously to the report of an engagement it appeared that the Russian fleet would soon leave Indian waters altogether. RUSSIAN FORCE DEFEATED IN MANCHURIA. An official despatch published in Tohiei announces that the Japanese have encountered and defeated a Russian force at Erh-huo-luo, near Ying-pan. A despatch from General Linievitch, which has reached St. Petersburg, announces that on the 9th inst. a body of Russian cavalry approached the railway in the vicinity of the village of Ma-chen- tai. The scouts destroyed the telegraph wires and the railway line near Ya-ku-tzu, and also at a point where the road from Chang-tu-fu to Kai-yuan crosses the railway. On the 10th inst. the Russian ecouts damaged two wires near Kai-yuan. MORE JAPANESE SUCCESSES. Official reports received in Tokio announce Japanese successes on Friday of last week at Ying-ching and Pa-kia-tse. ROSHDESTVENSKY'S MESSAGE. I The following message from St. Petersburg ha,, been received by the Echo de Paris": "A tele- gram causing great emotion announces that Admiral Roshdestvensky's fleet is going towards Formosa, where it is believed that Admiral Togo's fleet is concentrated. "No news has been received from Admiral Roshdestvensky since his departure from Nossi Be, except a telegram saying: I shall not telegraph again before the battle. If I am beaten, Togo will tell you. If I beat him, I will announce it to you. FLEET IN TWO PARTS. I It was on Saturday rumoured at Hong Kong that the Baltic Fleet had split into two sections, one going to the Anambas and one to Java. The P. and O. steamer Poona has arrived at Hong Kong, having been stopped between Saigor and Singapore and allowed to proceed after being overhauled. Many colliers are arriving from Durban and Cardiff, and are apparently awaiting orders. SEA FIGHTING BEGUN.
