1906-10-29 THE INTERNAL SITUATION IN RUSSIA
London Times, 29 October 1906, p. 5: THE INTERNAL SITUATION IN RUSSIA. (FROM A CORRESPONDENT.) ST. PETERSBURG, OCT. 28. (Excerpt) The gunboat Gilyak, launched here yesterday, is intended, with several other vessels of her class, for service on the Amur and for fishery protection duties. This fact, together with the amalgamation of the Ussuri with the Manchurian railways, indicates that Russia does not propose to surrender more than she must to Japan in regard to the commercial and fishery agreements now being negotiated.
The Admiralty will shoirtly lay down two 21,000-ton battleships here. It is said that the plans resemble those of the Dreadnought.
