The Czar's Attitude.
Account by Survivors. London, May 31 On hearing of the naval disaster, the Czar declared that all was over. He afterwards relapsed into his nnshaken superstition that Russians cannot be beaten. Up to noon on Monday 2223 Russian officers and men were rescued or landed at various places under a white flag. The survivors declare the attack was so sudden and complete, and Togo's plan so different to what was expected, that the entire fleet were seized with panic. The long range fire was deadly. The water was smooth during a moonlight attack. Torpedoers, swarming like hornets, encircled the Russians. Tt is balieved that Japanese submarines participated.
