ST. PETERSBURG, June
30. 10:10 p. in.— Martial-law
has been .proclaimed in the
Governments of Sebastopol,
Xichblaieff and Erivan. An
im])eriai decree 'confers on
the Viceroy of the Caucasus
the rights of a military com
mander with special powers.
The same powers are bestow
ed on the commander of the
Black Sea fleet, so far as the
districts of Sebastopol and
Xicholaieff are concerned.
ODESSA, June 30 (evening).
This rauch-dreaded day, to the
surprise of every one, passed with
out a shot being fired either ashore
cr afloat, while the mutinous crew
cf the battleship Kniaz Potemkine
capitulated unconditionally to
Vice Admiral Kruger's squad
rtn, and at 5 130 o'clock this after
noon the vessel was slowly steam
ing three miles distant after Ad
mral Krugers vessels, which had
already sailed and were visible six
tries away.
Exactly what happened during
t is day of dramatic surprises is,
1j a great extent, a matter of
vV .njecture, aided by binoculars.
After the shots the Kniaz Po
tenkine Fred before midnight on
Tlursday nothing further hap
°peied. Odessa awoke early to
da* to find the Black Sea squad
ro i lying off longeron Point, and
every one was expecting a naval
fig t. The city was like an armed
catip.
Iroops barred all the ap
proxhes to the harbor and were
biviuacking in tents in Cathedral
Sqtare, and four batteries of ar
tilljy, well supplied with ammu
nition, had been placed in the park
and at I-angeron.

TROUBLE SPREADING
THR 0 UGHOUt RUSSIA
Martial Law Is Declared at Sebastopol ,
Nicholaiejf and Other Cities.
Revolutionists Are Charged With Inciting
y Mutiny on the* Battleship.
ST. PETERSBURG, July 1, 3 a. m.— The first news from Odessa of the sur
render of the Kniaz Potemkine to Vice Admiral Kruger's squadron reached
here through a press dispatch from Washington conveying the tent of a.cable
gram gent by the American Consul at Odessa, W.S. Heenan, as with thedeclar- "
ation of martial law. General Kallanoff had shut down on all dispatches.; Even
the foreign embassies here were without advices during the day. The press,
dispatch announcing the surrender of the battleship was held up until 2 o'clock .
this morning. At the Ministry, of \u25a0 the Interior. the press had been \u25a0 informed yes-:.
t terday afternoon that the Kniaz Potemkine r with a, mutinous ; crew, probably
' drunk, and without'a man on board capable of navigating the ship, had .al
ready weighed anchor and started seaward. The presumption Is; that the bat
tleship met the squadcon before the latter reached the oflllng, and under the ,'
frowning ' guns of Kruger's warships concluded that it was better to surrender
than to fight. ' V-5-V"
I^fARTIAL-LAW DECLARED AT SEBASTOPOL. •'\u25a0 m
Reports received by the Ministry of the Interior give an. entirely^ different
version of the origin of the mutiny, which is attributed to a deliberate plot. or- •
ganlzed by twenty saflors belonging to the revolutionary, organization. 'These
reports placethe number of killed during the rioting on. shore at J 300 and the
wounded at twice, that number.
M.irtlal law has been declared at Sebastopol and, Nicholaieff. and'extra
ordinary powers have been given to Admiral Chuk'nin,:' commander of the Black .
; • Bea fleet,but beyond, the general conditions existing in Jhese ports of; the Black :
Sea little definite reasons for the declaration of martlallaw are known. Gossip,'
however, says there has been, a. mutiny on board the battleship I; Tohesme. at-
Sebastopol. The declaration of martial law in Erivan was inevitable: ln 'coase
quence of the situation in the Southern Caucasus, dispa'lohes. indicating that
Moslems and Armenians were waging what almost might bi?= called .war.
With the surrender of the Kniaz Potemkine, however, the immediate ', danger
of the situation seemed to collapse, the five thousand blueJackets;at;LJbau; , who
followed the example of their comrades on the. rebel battleship,-' having earlier '?lrij«
the day yielded to the military, by whom they wore surrounded -In a wood \ near,
the spot," after a promise that better foood would be givth them. s
LONGSHOBEMEN JOlfN THE STBIJCEBS.
What seemed like an extension of -.the mutiny, to the Bailors^at Cronstadt.also .
proved to be short lived, although allthe regular workmen' ln the port are still
on strike and reports of 'coming trouble, both there; and at . St.* Petersburg. * are *
rife. The strike to-day was extended to the longshoremen of St. Petersburg and,
the workmen In several large factories are again \u25a0 restive and are 'threatening
disorder. . . \u25a0/\u25a0' \u0084 * '
Late last night a rumor gained currrency that a mob -had sacked a 'small;,
arms factory at Kolplno, twenty miles away, and /was' marching "on St. Peters
burg, but of this rumor no confirmation has been obtained.- . -'"
Now that the Kniaz Potemkine has surrendered; it is probable that, the, Gov
ernment will gradually allow the publication «of the details of- the [ mutiny. .The
censorship this morning merely permitted the newspapers : to ' print ra^'dlspatch V
which reads: • . - .\u25a0 \u0084 -'.-.'

With the letter the following • statement
was given out: * - • - -.'
' John D. • Rockefeller Jr.. with other gentle
men of this city, was Instrumental In forming
the - General Education Board in February.
ltM/a.' A - very \u25a0 broad \u25a0 and - admirable • charter
was secured - from \u25a0 Congress and . signed .by
President Roosevelt on January 12. 1906.' . .
: A gift of JI.CCO.OOO from Mr.' John D. Rock
efeller was immediately passed over to ~ the>
board, especially designated for educational
work in. the .South. Other, funds have been
added by other philanthropists since that time

particulars: • • \u25a0 .

made on the organization \u25a0of the board could
be distributed. The present gift of J10.000.000
is- held as endowment, the Income only being
available for distribution. <~
The first gift was designed to bo used ex
clusively in the Southern States. The present
gift is for use -not 'only in. the Southern
States, but throughout the United States with
out- distinction of section. .• \u25a0 " \u25a0' \u25a0 '
The first rift could bo used- for common
schools and secondary education: the * second
gift Is con.lr.fd to hlgfer education and' is de
signed especially for -colleges as distinguished
from the great universities, although there i*
no prohibition In the letter of gift against
making ; contributions to : universities. „ : ,
Both gifts are alike available for denomina
tional schools as' well as for those - which ar«
non-sectarian. -While the -funds may •be em
ployed - for - denominational schools 1 , they « will
be. employed without sectarian distinctions.
No - special denomination will ba particularly
favored, but - the . funds will 'be open to ap-'
proved schools of alt denominations, although
they cannot be employed for giving specifically
theological - instruction.
.In distributing, the funds the board will aim
especially to favor those' lnstructions which ar*
well located ' and which have a ' constituency
strong and able to insure permanence . . and
power. No attempt will be made to resusci
tate moribund schools or to assist Institutions
which are so located that they cannot -promise
to be permanently useful.-- \u25a0 • . * :- :>.
