Russian Battleship Knaiz Potemkine Scuttled

SCENE IN HARBOR OF HOUMANIA
Mutinous' Crew Opened the Ves$el'$
Seacocks Before Leaving, and Ship
Went to the Ocean's Bottom.
The Russian battleship Kniaz Potem
kine, which has been in, the hands of a
mutinous crew, that terrorized the peo
ple of Odessa by demonstrations in that
harbor, and successfully standing off
the whole Russian fleet was reported
as being given up. This report was un
founded, however, as is- indicated by
the following dispatches:
Turned on Seacocks.
Kustenji, Roumania, By Cable. The
announcement that the battleship
Kniaz Potemkine sailed with Hear Ad
miral Kruger's squadron turns out to
be incorrect. .
Before leaving the Kniaz Potemkine
the mutineers opened the seacocks and
flooded her hold. She is now lying at
the bottom, but it is expected will be
refloated in time to leave for Sevasto

Sevastopol, By Cabye. The Russian
torpedo boat No. 27, which declined to
surrender to the Roumanian Govern
ment with the Kniaz Potemkine, de
claring that she had not mutinied, 'but
had been forced to follow the muti
nous battleship, has arrived here. Jhft"

St. Petersburg, By Cable. Rear-Admiral
Pisareffski reports to the Admi
ralty that the engine room of the
Kniaz Potemkine is full of water and
it is presumed that the mutineers turn
ed on the seacocks before leaving her.
Negotiations between Russia and
Roumania on the question of the sur
render of the Kniaz Potemkine are in
Foreign Minister Lamsdorff and M.
Rosseti-Solesco. the Roumanian Min
ister at St. Petersburg, held a confer
ence on the subject, but no decision was
readied. Russia is disposed to insist
on the surrender of the men, not as
political prisoners, to which Roumania
would object, but as criminals guilty
of murder and theft. There were sev
eral hundred thousand rubles on board
the batleship, which the crew divided
when they left the ship. The Roma
nian Government is somewhat embar
rassed by the fact that it promised the
mutineers if they surrendered that they
would be treated as deserters.
St. Petersburg, By Cable Although
10 days have elapsed since Russia in
formed President Roosevelt of her wil
lingness to conclude an armistice pend
ing the result of the Washington con
ference, Japan, so far as known to the
Russian Government, has not replied to
the President's communication.
Whon the question of an armistice
was first broached by the President, it
is understood that Japan indicated that
he would decline to agree to a sus
pension of hostilities until the pleni-
