One hundred sailors were landed from the Russian cruiser Lena yesterday morning to act as an escort at the funeral of the late Wasily Osipoff, chaplain of the Lena, who died of heart disease last Saturday morning. Captain Ginther accompanied the men. The funeral took place from the Greek Church on Powell street. The Lena is to sail at noon to-morrow direct for Vladivostok.
