1904-02-20 THE RUSSIAN GUNBOAT AT SHANGHAI

London Times, 20 February 1904, p. 7: THE RUSSIAN GUNBOAT AT SHANGHAI. (FROM OUR CORRESPONDENT.) SHANGHAI, FEB. 19, 10:40 P.M.

            The Chinese authorities are exercised about the arrival at Wu-sung to-day of the Japanese cruiser Akitsushima. They connect it with the presence of the Russian gunboat Mandjur, which, in the absence of orders, remains anchored off the bund. The Shanghai Taotai last week, acting on the representations of the Japanese Consulate, suggested that the Mandjur should leave Shanghai, but no formal request has been made.
