It is recognized  at the Admiralty   as  quite  possible   that    Ro-1  jestvensky  may  have  been  coiiipellV*d  by military     necessity   to destroy a  neutralv essel.   If   he feared  that   to  allow  it to     proceed and report the  whereabouts     of  the   Russian    fleet     Meets in .the Opera House 1st and  would endanger his strategic plan, he     3rd Tuesday at 7.30 p.m.   Worthy  had  no     other alternative except, \o .

Such an   incident is unfortunate, but ,  every naval     officermust admit That  j  the risk in such a crisis is too groat '  to take any chances.   If the ship was  unji:sti('ably   sunk from     the .--.tand-  point of     international law,  Russia,  of course,  will have lo foot the bill,  but any cost is cheap if it furthered  Roiestvenskv's mission.
