(By Associated press.)
ST. PETERSBURG, July (1.-2:15 A. M?
While no official confirmation is obtain?
able The Associated Press has been in?
formed by tin authority usually reliable
that the Admiralty has received news
that Hie Knlaz Potomklne after shipping
coal, provisions and medicines. Is again
at large in the Black Sen, and that her
destination Is unknown.
Whether the report of the sailing of the
battleship he true or not, tho crew took
a remarkable step yesterday, when, with
nil the solemnity of a provisional govern?
ment, It issued a manifesto addressed
to the Powers. This action doubtless
was taken to quiet the apprehension of
foreign powers find to leave no excuse
for the sending of warships through thu
Dardanelles to affect the capturo of the
battleship, which until now Russia's
Black Sea fleet has not dared to attempi.
It Is consldi-red a shrowd movo on tho
part of tlio mutineers, and stamps the
commander of tho crew ils a leader far
above the class of the ordinary sailor,
and strengthen? the opinion that he Is
not a.member of the original crew, but
one of the revolutionaries who went on
board at Odessa,
in dreien closely In touch .with the

conclusion that tho commander of tue

Convention is Best iti History of
Virginia-North Carolina
? Association.
MAY MEET HERE IN WINTER
(Special from a Staff Correspondent.)
ASHEVILLE, N. C. July C.-Forhnps
the most noteworthy, ns well as tho most
gratifying, fact In connection with tho
Virginia-North Carolina press conven?
tion, which began nt Kcnllworth Inn
this forenoon, Is the patent fact thnt It
Is easily tho best eonvcntlo'ii tho Carolina
editors have ever held. At nn enrly hour
this morning the announcement was nircflu
that thoro had been 270 arrivals, while
a number came In during tho day. As
to tho personnel of tho convention, tho
various schools of journalism wore repre?
sented, a fact'which could not be' said
of many previous gatherings.
Such Is tho estimato of tho meeting of
the. North Carolina nnd Virginia editors
by the Ashevlllo Gazette-News of this af?
ternoon ,nnd that Is the estimate of tho
editors themselves. It is a remarkable
gathering and the cltlzons of Ashovlllo,
and Malinger Mooro of tho Kcnllworth
Inn are doing their utmost to malie tho
social Bldo of tho occasion ns successful
as the -business sido has been. There Is
a smile of satisfaction upon tho counte?
nances of each and every guest which
never comes off, save when ?omo men?
tion of adjournment 1b made.
President Varner. of the North Caro?
lina Press Association, who Is himself ?
most gracious host, suggested this morn?
ing that a mid-winter meeting of the' two
association be held next year in Vir?
ginia, and a trip be. taken from that
point to Florida and Cuba. The edito?
rial company is now taking a trolley ride
through the scenic suburbs of Ashcvilld,
personally conducted by Mr. W. B. West
lake, of the Ashovlllo Citizen.
The Carolina. Association held a busi?
ness meeting this morning, and tho Vir?
ginians sat with them. There . was an
eloquent address of wclcomo by Mayor
Barnard, of Ashevllle, who made a hit
by Eaylng that ho was born in Virginia,
but that otherwise he would, prefer to
have boon born In North Carolina, and
that were ho not a resideni of North Car?
olina he would prefer to bo a resident of
Virginia. It wm a graceful speech alto?
gether. The responses wero by Mr.
Charles D. Dewlt, of tho Snlem Times
Register, for Virginia, and Major H. A.
I>jndon, of tho Flttsboro Record, for
North Carolina.
Mr. Dewlt said the Virginians were
overwhelmed with the cordiality of Hielr
reception, which sentiment the Virgin?
ians applauded, and Major London, who
figured so prominently when Carolina's
monument was unveiled nt Appomattox,
said that there had been no little differ?
ence of opinion bet-ween Virginia, nnd
North Carolina over the question whether
North Carolina was first on certnln occa?
sions and last on other occnslons, but
thnt thoro was ono point with reference
to which there,.could be no question, and
'that was Virginia was both first and last
to-day. Xlrsf In our- affections nnd'-last
in our gratitude ??
President's Address.
As Tho Tlmes-Dlspatch had made the
suggestion that a joint meeting be held
this year. Mr. W. S. Copeland was called
upon by President Lewis, of the Virginia
association, to make some "appropriate
remarks," and spoke briefly. President
.Varner then read his annual address, and
among other things said;
"We have vet problems to solve and
difficulties to "overcome. A lack of con?
fidence on the part of the people In the
courts of Justice Is a most regrettable
state of. affairs. Human life is entirely
too cheap In North Carolina. It often*
happens thnt rich and Influential men
go with Impunity because they are able
to employ shrewd counsel and procure
corrupt men to fix juries and train fit?
nesses. This state of affairs is not con?
fined to any one section of thn United
States." '?
The annual address of President Lewis
was read last night, and tho Virginia
editors agreed that It was one of tho
best ovar delivered by any president of
the association. After President Varnor'a
address this morning, several papers wero
rend as follows:
"The Fraternity of Journalism, by W.
6. Copeland, of the Richmond Tlmes
Dlspatch.
?The Effect of th? Pntent/Outside Upon
Foreign Advertising," D. J. Whicliard, of
the Greenville Reflector.

"Historian's Paper." by, T. J. Lnpsiter,
of the Smithfleld Herald.
'(Scrambled Eggs," by J. A. Robinson,
,of the Durham Sun.
At the evening session, there was an
address of welcome to the visiting editors
by Won. U. F. Dl.xon, Stato Auditor, nnd
a responso by Mr. J. H. Llndsoy, of tho
CharlottcsvJllo Progress. Tho evening pro?
gramme was concluded with a compli?
mentary ball.

The explosion occurred about S o'clock,
and In half an hour the entire mountain
was covered with people, some attracted
by a morbid curiosity, while others were
there to do rescue work. ?

the mine all day and no further trouble
Is anticipated. The loading of coal at tho
Tidewater tipple will probably bo re?
sumed to-morrow.

was caused by m Wry heavy shock In
robing the pockets and that tho dust
Ignited tho Tidewater ?nine, however, la
below the Elkhorn River bocl and out?
siders familiar with the mine doubt tho
dust Igniting theory. Tho mine Is ven?
tilated by an eighteen foot fan.
