Senator PEARCE (Western Australia) (Minister of Defence) . - In moving

That the Senate do now adjourn,

I desire to make available further particulars in regard to the destruction of the German cruiser Emden,. The following cable, dated 11th November, has been received from Mr. Webster, the manager of the Eastern Extension Telegraph Company, Adelaide: -

Following further particulars from company's doctor Ollerhead. Returned from Keeling, reports Emden'!) captain unwonnded prisoner. Kaiser's nephew also unwounded.

I understand that the Kaiser's nephew was an officer on the Emden -

About 200 killed. About thirty wounded tuken off Emden, some remaining Keeling, will be picked up by ship returning from Cocos. Nothing seen Ayetha-

That is the launch on which the landing party escaped -

Island will bc visited frequently while unaaptured. Sydney sunk Emden't collier as flooded prior capture.

I presume that the Germans themselves flooded the collier, and that she was afterwards sunk by the Sydney.
