St. Petersburg's Mistake.

More Discord Among Russian Officials. Supposed Short Coal Supplies. London, May 29. St. Petersburg interpreted Tokio's silence as a Russian victory. The Russian Admiralty approved of Rozjestvenaki's reported order of battle, which proposed he should enter Korea Straits so as to enable the battleships to bear the brunt of the fighting, Admiral Avellan, Russian Minister of Marine, always thought that Rozjestvenski would pass to the eastward of Japan. The decision in favour of Tsushima Island is ascribed to the hope of giving Togo the slip. It is surmised in London that the condition of his coal bunkers dictated the taking of the shortest route.
