HANKOW, China, Oct." IS.-The first

on the north bank of the Han river Just

It waa indecisive. The revolutionists j

back from their position, but In doing so j
they exhausted their rifle ammunition
and were compelled to retire on their
base at Wu Chang. v -
Tho revolutionists with Infantry and
artillery attacked the government troops
which were reinforced from the Chinese
warships In the river and supported by
the guns of the fleet.
'While the fighting was In prorress the
thirteen foreign vest-els In the river

of his seniority, has been given the direc

Fight Sert. at Daybreak. '
It was Just daybreak when Admiral j
Sah ordered his cruisers to disembark
their soldiers near Chang Piao's position. I
The revolutionists on the'Wu Chang 1
fortifications Immediately detected the
movement and opened a hot fire with !
their artlllerv. '
The crulsors and gun boats In the
river replied with a raiu of bhells, which
diverted the attention of the Wu Chang
artillerymen and effectually covered the
landing of the troops. ...
. Scattered bodies of revolutionists on
both aides of the river Joined in the
fighting, and by mid-forenoon it waa es
timated that 3.000 imperial troops and
nearly 10,400 rebels were ensaaed.
The warships uted up .a largo quantity !
of ammunition but the e(fvctens of
their fire as' hampered by fear of en
dangerlng the foreign concessions.
All the foreign warships iu the river
sent landing parties ashore for, the pro
tection of the foreign interests.
At the first sound of firing Admiral Sah
Chen Ping, In oommand of the Chinese
warships, ordered men landed to support
General Chang Plao. formerly commander
of the troops of the Wu-Chang district,
wh'had assumed command cf the im
perial troops. The rebolK had anticipated
this move by the fleet and directed a hot
fire on the warships and the landing par
ties from the Wu-Chang, bank of. the
Admiral Sah In turn ordered - the war
ships to fire on the rebel field pieces,
and for a time shells fell thick among
the rebel gunners. The warship officers,
however, were seiiously handicapped by
the danger to the foreign eoncevdona in.
volved in their fire.

narrowly escaped with their lives. They
had been oruUlng on the river In expec
