Japanese Steamer Hits a Mine.

A British Demonstration,

The Neutrality Trouble.

Receired May 18 8.50 a.m. London, May 17 A German ship which has arrived at Hongkong reports that she saw fifty vessels of the Baltic Fleet at Hongkobe, on the 14th. Ad. Birileff has ordered the commanders of the ships of the fourth Baltic Fleet to be m readiness to leave Kronstadt on the 14th June.

Baron Suyematsu, m a letter to " Le Matin," says that the absence of a 24 hours rule cannot imply that warships are allowed au unlimited stay m Frenoh waters. Russia herself adopted a 24 hours rule, and when the Czar ordered Kozjeatvenski to leave, his obstinate sojourn on the coast of IndoChina was an affront towards Franco and an act of disobedience to his own Govern-! tnent.
