Admiral Enquist Interviewed.
A Hint to the Russians at Shanghai, The Throwing: Overboard of the Wounded. A Russian Cautain's Apology. Received June 8,1.7 a.m. London, June 7 Admiral Enquist, interviewed, stated that after his flag was transferred to the Aurora, being unable to see the main Russian fleet, and believing it defeated and dispersed, he retired in the interests of humanity. The Jemtchug and Aurora are coaling. The Japanese destroyer Shinanome entered Shanghai and circled round the interned Russians, evidently as a hint that it would be dangerous if they attempt to escape. While the Japanese were convoying the Orel to Sasebo, ten Russian engineers tried to explode the magazine. Eight of them were shot. Twelve of the Russians, who were badly wounded, implored their comrades to throw them overboard. This was done without the Japanese' knowledge. The captain of the Orel before expiring apologised to the Japanese for his crew's cruelty and mutinous behaviour.
