"The public may possibly wonder why it is that they have never heard in the papers of the fate of the passengers of the __Korosko__. In these days of universal press agencies, responsive to the slightest stimulus, it may well seem incredible that an international incident of such importance should remain so long unchronicled. Suffice it that there were very valid reasons, both of a per-sonal and political nature, for holding it back. The facts were well known to a good number of peo-ple at the time, and some version of them did ac-tually appear in a provincial paper, but was gen-erally discredited. They have now been thrown into narrative form, the incidents having been col-lated from the sworn statements of Colonel Cochrane Cochrane, of the Army and Navy Club, and from the letters of Miss Adams, of Boston, Mass."
