What is this?
Optical character recognition (OCR) is an automated process that converts a digital image containing numbers and letters into computer-readable numbers and letters. The search engine used on this web site searches OCR-generated text for the word or phrase you are looking for. Please note that OCR is not 100 percent accurate. If the original image is blurry, has extraneous marks, or contains ornate font styles or very small text, the OCR process will produce nonsense characters, extraneous spaces, and other errors, such as those you may see on this page. In addition, the OCR process cannot interpret images and may ignore them or render them as strings of nonsense characters. Despite these drawbacks, OCR remains a powerful tool for making newspaper pages accessible by searching.

Russia Believes Rojestvensky Has To^o at Disadvantage. SL Petersburg.—Admiral Nebogat- off's Junction with Vice Admiral Ro jestvensky Is' now considered by the admiralty ds practically assured and hope for a successful Issue in the approaching struggle for mastery, of the sea Is greatly encouraged. Nebo- gatoff is regarded as the Blucher of the situation, and, indeed, he is said to resemble him greatly in tempera ment. He may lack his strategy and finesse, but, like the Prussian, he has bulldog courage and Is a bom fighter who goes stralgni for the enemy. If Vice Admiral Kamimura, like Grouchy at Waterloo, has failed to prevent a Junction of the Russian fleets, as the admiralty here believes he has, the Impression Is strong that Admiral Togo will not dare risk an open battle with the combined fleets of Rojestvensky and Nebogatoff and will protect himself by torpedo at tacks and possibly a long range ac tion, being prepared 'to draw off In the event that he is unable to make an Impression. He stated that he had been nego tiating for several days for Immunity from punishment In case he should surrender himself to the authorities, although he declined to say with whom the negotiations are being held. He says he is tired of living In Isola tion from his relatives and friends and wUhes to reform and get Into busi ness. He declared that he would ask for immunity from the penitentiary, and stated that he was ready tc cept the protection of the Omaha po lice. He said that in case he was per mitted to remain In Omaha and the indictments against him were quashed he would get into business at once. Crowe has been at the home of his brother, J. J. Crowe, who resides Council Bluffs, and runs a saloon in that city. He was asked if he had a hand In the famous Cudahy kidnaping, but de clined to either-deny or admit his guilt. During the interview he was appar ently 111 at ease. The kidnaping of young Cudahy took place December 18, 1890. The kidnaper demanded a ransom of $25,- 000 for the boy, but he was set free near his father’s home by his, cap- tor, who got no money. Following the kidnaping Edward Cudahy, Sr., offered a reward of $26.- 000 for the capture of Crowe, and this offer was followed by another of a similar nature by the city council and oounty commissioners. Other rewards were also offered.-bringing the aggre gate up to $50,000. Following the in terview Crowe left for the home of his brother in Council Bluffs. What action. If . any, will be taken by the authorities Is not known. He Vanishes Again. As mysteriously as was the return by Crowe, the alleged kidnaper of Ed die Cudahy, four years ago, has been his sudden disappearance. When he left the office of the local newspaper ' he femarked that he was going to the home of hla brother In Council Bluffs, but he could not t>e located there next day. Kansas Faces Dry 8eason.

BIG NATAL BATTLE SOON, London, May 11. — The alleged whereabouts of the fleets of Admirals Rojestvensky and Nebogatoff and the dispatohes wired from Paris to the effeot that they left Frenoh waters at the request of the Frenoh authorities are not oredited here. That they joined in Frenoh waters is oertain, and that they are still there is likewise a pala- ble fact. That they are to move north ward may so, but it is not beoause France demands it, but rather beoause the Russian commanders feel that the tlem has oome to risk' everything on a desperate* move, and the naval ex perts here believe now that a naval battle will soon be inevitable. Rojestvensky has remained in Frenoh waters because he entertained hopes he oonld lure Togo far from his base and thus throw the balance in favor of the Russians. Apparently now he de spairs of accomplishing this and has determined to move boldly north and give battle at any plaoé, whether it be off the coast of Luzon, in the straits of Formosa oi even in the open Paoiflo ocean.
