The transfer of the Dacia discussed in London and Washington. A unit of the Hamburg-Amerika fleet, the Dacia had been sheltering at Port Arthur, Texas, since July 28, and had lately been bought by an American citizen of German extraction and admitted to the American Registry. This transfer the British Government does not recognize, and intimates that the vessel would be liable to seizure if she attempted to make for a German port. The Russians take 5,000 prisoners and nearly 10,000 head of cattle from defeated Turks in the Caucasus.
